Cooking gureepufuruutsu on the gasu renji

The answers to yesterday’s “quiz” are:

gureepufuruutsu = grapefruit
gasu renji = stove (gas range)

Say it like the guys on A Christmas Story (remember the restaurant scene?) and you’ll hear it.

Nicole, Julie, Heather, Jaci and Dandelionmomall guessed correctly on gureepufuruutsu (that word is annoying to type).

Nicole and Dandelionmom came close in guessing that gasu renji is a gas tank/engine.

So, no, you really couldn’t cook gureepufuruutsu on the gasu renji. Not directly anyway.

I have another quiz for you. This one was sent to me by a friend and I had so much fun taking it. It’s an:

80s Lyrics Quiz!!!
I only wish I could listen to each song instead of singing the snippet in my mind. It should be my new play list. Leave a comment and let me know how you did. I’ll then tell you what I scored. If you’re not so fond of the 80s (but really, what’s wrong with you?!?!) you might do better on the

90s Lyrics Quiz
I’m not even going to take this one. I looked at the first couple of songs and have no clue. Yikes. I did listen to the radio in the 90s…but obviously I didn’t pay good enough attention.

I have been bestowed with more awards and I must tell you about them because they’re all pretty spectacular. That doesn’t really mean that I am, but the awards sure are neat.

Toni, at A Daily Dose of Toni, who is my award-winning friend has designated my blog a Brainy Blog. I’m flattered and honored. I’m not sure all of you would agree, but I do consider myself brainy on occasion.

Leah, at Diaries of a Domestic Goddess, has awarded me the I ♥ your blog award. This is one of my faves. I ♥ it.

Christy, at Motherhood…Unscripted, thinks my blog is really kreativ! I appreciate the vote of confidence because sometimes I don’t feel very kreativ. This is the cutest award going right now. I want a blog design like this. Does that mean I have to start another blog?…

And Tiffiney, at My Southern, Hippie, Married, Mom of Four Life!!has bestowed upon me the Proximidade Award. This is what the award stands for…”These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!” Wow, Tiffiney: charming…I try to be; friendship propagator…I think BPOTW helps out!; more attention…I’d love it 🙂

Thanks everyone!

    Okay, I took the 80s quiz. Did great on the early 80s stuff, and I STUNK at almost everything after about 87.

    GNR? Who?

    But Pat Benatar & The Romantics — no problem.

    My score: 70.

    I feel old.

  2. though I didn’t comment yesterday, I did spent about 10 minutes trying to figure out the ‘gas range’. I got the grapefruit. Have you ever played the board game Mad Gab? You would have a blast with it!!

    Look at all them awards! Woot! It doesn’t surprise me at all… I think you should break out that ball gown to accept them properly {wink}
    hugs, Jami

  3. My final score was 67.2 though I don’t know if this snide little comment with it reflects a serious decrease …
    Your generation stuck mine with a motherload of cultural horrors (bradys! disco! plaid! roller skating!). -30% for being a yuppie.

    I did get all the bonus questions right.

    Can’t believe some of the ones I missed though.
