Saturday Six – Episode 92

saturday six

I am making an effort to post these questions earlier in the day. Four thirty in the afternoon is better than almost midnight Sunday morning, right?

For those who’d like to join in on the fun, playing is simple: you can either answer the questions in this journal or you can answer them in your own blog and leave a link. It is strongly recommended that you answer the journals in your blog and post the link…since several of the people who are playing have relocated away from AOL, it’s important that everyone knows where your new (or temporary) blogging homes are, so if you don’t mind, leave a first name and your journal’s link, just so we can find you easier!

But before the questions, it’s time to recognize the first person to play last week. According to the rules, to be considered “first to play,” you must be the first one to either answer questions in the comment or post the link to the specific entry in which you’ve answered the questions. The first one to do that was Betty, of “Of mini-paws and menopause.” Congratulations, Betty!

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal…but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as “first to play,” you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. Do you generally tend to be early, late or right on time?

2. Did you belong to any clubs in high school? If so, which did you value the most?

3. Where was your favorite place to hang out when you were in high school? How often were you there and were you usually with friends or alone?

4. Take this quiz (if you haven’t already!): What chess piece are you? (Thanks to Charles.)

5. When is the last time you played a board game and what game did you play? Did you win?

6. You’re called to serve on a jury. Would you rather sit on a capital murder case, a personal injury case, a wrongful death suit or a drunk driving case, and why?

If you have a Reader’s Choice question you’d like to see asked (and answered), click the e-mail link on the About Me bar and send it to me.

MY ANSWERS:
1. Usually a minute or two late. Working on that.

2. I’m not sure which clubs I was in. I was on my high school newspaper staff and I think I valued that more than any other activity in high school.

3. My favorite place to hang out back then was usually at home in my room. I didn’t have a lot of friends, and my home was so cluttered that having visitors wasn’t always an option. It’s not necessarily the most common hangout I’d have chosen, but it was my usual one.

4. An Outer Black Pawn:
You are a good soldier, the man the Man counts on. Unfortunately, he may or may not care for your well being, and so he will put you out just protect his interests. This you do without question because you are a team player. Bad news for you, because your team, the black team, tends to have to be more defensive in nature, and sometimes has to make hard choices or sacrifices. Guess who just volunteered?

5. I haven’t played a board game since Christmas of 2004. It was Scrabble and I played with my best friend and his wife. I lost, but the consolation was that she beat both of us, so he didn’t get any bragging rights over me!

6. I think I’d rather sit on a personal injury case. I think I could be sympathetic, but at the same time, I wouldn’t give someone millions of dollars if they were the ones who had a hand in their own injuries.

  1. 1. I tend to be either early or right on time. My boss is always 15 to 20 minutes late to work every day and it makes me insane waiting for her every morning.

    2. Maybe the French club or something but I really don’t recall.

    3. As far and hang-outs go, we did have one pizza place we would go to after football games. The popular thing to where I grew up was to cruise up and down “the strip” on Friday and Saturday nights. My best friend had a car with T-Tops and we would pop the top out and think we were so cool.

    An Inner Black Pawn
    You scored 1 Power-Finesse, 2 Leader-Follower, 3 Unique-Ordinary, and 2 Offense-Defense!

    You are a believer in your cause, so you try to help your black brothers fight off the oppression of the whiteys. Your role is more supportive of the big guys on your team as they do the cool stuff, but at least you aren’t just cannon fodder like the Outer Pawns. You have to react to a situation since white gets the first move, but you are the constant thorn in White’s side. White is going to try to kick your ass quick, but fortuantely if your King knows what he’s doing, someone’s got your back. You like your contribution to be supporting the big picture, even if it means you take one for the team.

    5. I believe I played a game of Trivial Pursuit Jr., and yes I won.

    6. I’d rather sit on a wrongful death suit because I think the evidence necessary to prove the case would make it a more interesting trial.

  2. Hi Patrick 🙂

    1. I an usually right on time. To be either late or early is kinda rude.

    2. Yeah I belonged to a couple, but I don’t admit to them now. LOL

    3. Loard’s Ice-cream or a little Hot Dog place that was near the school.

    4. The Black Knight

    5. Scrabble, Monopoly, Quiddler, Balderdash…we had a marathon game night.

    6.I think a DD case. We lost a good friend to DD a few years back. Sigh.

  3. Here are my answershttp://journals.aol.com/springsnymph/AnotherCountryHeardFrom/entries/828

  4. 1. RIGHT on time.

    2. I was in the French club my junior year of HS, but I decided that wasn’t for me. I was in “Pom” for three years and and “officer” my senior year. I loved it! Made HS much more fun and I felt “involved” in almost everything.

    3. I hung out mostly with other members of the Pom squad and officers. Occasionally we would “drag Broadway” or have some other fun activities. How often were you there and were you usually with friends or alone? Usually with friends, with the exception of my sophomore year of which I was grounded…a lot.

    5. Ha ha…Shoots & Ladders with Caleb. I think he won.

    6. Capital murder…I love criminal law! Funny because I used to work Personal Injury/Medical Malpractice.

  5. Here’s mine, Patrick:

    1. Early.
    2. Student government mainly; I valued that because of the friendships and the service we did for the school and community.
    3. Library; usually by myself; enjoyed and still enjoy reading.

    4. A Black Rook
    You scored 3 Power-Finesse, 0 Leader-Follower, 1 Unique-Ordinary, and 1 Offense-Defense!
    You don’t have to worry about fancy plans, or sophisticated schemes. You are just on the board to kick some ass and smash some white pieces. You stand by your leaders, and they get worried when you are removed from play. You work best with your buddy, the other black rook, and when you don’t have him watching your six, you tend to be somewhat innefective.

    5.Scrabble; about two months ago with husband and son. I came in second, mainly because I was helping son to make words worth more points.

    6.Drunk driving case. I don’t think I’d want to see the evidence in a murder case; the personal injury cases are so exaggerated at times and it would be hard to judge wrongful death in my opinion.
