When Was the Last Time You Took a Quiz?

Submitted by on September 30, 2009 – 10:50 am5 Comments

Can I just tell you why I love quizzes so much? It’s because the answers give me such an insight into you. I like that we can get to know one another better.

I have been doing these with my kids and my family for a long time. It’s surprising the things that we learn about each other from reading each others answers. These are usually things that probably would not come up in casual conversation.

I especially like that the quizzes themselves are short, but thoughtful.

Having said all that, it’s time for another Tiki Tiki quiz. (Yay!)

Today I’m curious about the last things you did. (I seriously love these!)

1. The last book I read:
My Life in France by Julia Child.

2. The last new friend I made:
Wendy, the mother of one of Lucy’s school friends.

3. The last place I visited:
Disneyland! (to see the Halloween fireworks show, which was crazy-awesome, but that’s not important right now.)

4. The last movie or TV show I watched:
Mr. Smith Goes To Washington with Jimmy Stewart – CLASSIC!

5. The last kind deed I did:
Gave a ride to friend’s boys home from the beach (with surfboards)!

6. The last meal I prepared:
Roasted whole chicken, baked potatoes, asparagus, homemade bread. (sometimes I rock. =D)

7. The last gift I gave:
Two tv on dvd sets to a friend for her birthday.

8. The last person I called:
My 95 year old mom with a question about a recipe. ;-)

9. The last picture on my camera:
Me, taken by Lucy, being photographed by a newspaper photographer for a story I wrote about coming to America from Cuba. (It should run next week sometime. I know. So accidentally cool.)

P9292019

10. The last thing I Googled:
“Eddie Haskell.” I sent the links to a (male) friend of Amy’s who was super sweet-talking me. (If you don’t know who “Eddie Haskell” was, I urge you to Google him.) =D

Now it’s your turn, tell me the last stuff you did.

Share, por favor!
