First Crusader Challenge - Vote For What YOU Think!

If you're not a crusader and you want to know more about this craziness... click here.

1. I wear some form of shoe approximately 99% of the time because I really don't like my feet to feel dirty! And of course there's the danger of being cut by broken glass or some dodgy person's accidentally-dropped blade, of course.




2. I have a friend who bloviates ALL the time, and quite honestly I'm embarrassed sometimes to be around him... I mean, no one needs to speak as though they're in the presence of some eighteenth century queen of England!




3. I correct people's pronunciation. I know it drives them nuts, but the correct pronunciation just demands to be spoken every time someone says it the wrong way! Sometimes I have to bite my tongue and just not say it (like if it were my boss or someone I just met!), but my poor boyfriend may just strangle me when I tell him once again how to pronounce schnitzel (come ON! It's not snitchel!!).




4. I can usually see things from someone else's point of view as well as my own. This must have made me quite an easy child to raise because when my mother said things like, No, you may not sleep over at your boyfriend's house when his parents are out, I kinda had to agree with her!




5. I've been going on holiday to this mountain resort since I was about six. We go on long hikes, row boats across the lake, and there's even this little animal park where children can play with and feed the rabbits, guinea pigs, pigeons and other fuliguline creatures.




6. I can't go a day without writing something, even if it's short. I carry a notebook around with me in my handbag/school bag so that I don't miss a single idea!




I may have revealed something about myself that isn't strictly true... I hope you managed to guess what it is ;-)

This is fun, Rachel! Love it! :) Hmmm, the lie? Could it be the one where you said you correct people's pronunciation?

Adriana said...

I totally love how you've set this up - and I'm afraid to vote, way too many options! But I'll take a stab...

Summer Ross said...

The polls were great! Very interesting to see the poll results!

Pk Hrezo said...

What a great idea, Rachel. Clever!. Nice to meet you! Bloggers Unite!

Michael Offutt said...

I voted on one but it wouldn't let me vote on any others. I think I messed it up :/

Danette said...

This is great! I guess I'll see how it goes now!

The Golden Eagle said...

I love all the polls you added!

Great Challenge post! :)

Rachel Morgan said...

And I'm loving seeing the results of the polls as people stop by ;-)

Angela Scott said...

Nice polls! It made me really have to use my noiggin. The problem, I'm still not sure what the lie is. I'd guess agreeing with the parents about the boyfriend thing.

Witless Exposition said...

Loved the polls! A lot of fun to see what everyone else thought. I'm going to say that wearing the shoes is the lie. Probably because that's the first thing I take off when I get home, though.

Robyn Campbell said...

I'm voting for the shoes. I kick mine off first thing. Very first thing. :) Love your blog.

Alison Miller said...

I love your polls - that was fun!

I haven't written my entry yet, but I will soon - promise!

I love the way you did this, making us guess which each one was :D I think the lie is teh friend (I think you were just trying to use the word bloviate), but I do have a friend that does that too if it wasn't the lie. It drives me CRAZY.

Interesting way to set up your challenge response, and thanks for letting us have our say like this. Welcome to the crusade!!

tinadchayes said...

Loved the polls you added. How cool!

Madeleine said...

Great presentation.
Although it would only let me vote on 2 of the polls. ;O)

Lisa Potts said...

I love the way you set this up! So much fun.

lbdiamond said...

Ha! I like how you set this up as a vote for each topic.

LadyJai said...

Hello fellow crusader! I am a tad bit late, so I just thought I would just say Hi! :D

correcting pronunciation is the lie because it's SHNITZEL! :D
