Answer me these Questions….Thirteen

For those unfamiliar with the idea of a Thursday Thirteen it is an opportunity to give thirteen pieces of information about the blogger in order that those who read may understand him or her a little better.  Today though hoverFrog speaks in the third person and so has decided to ask questions rather than provide answers.  This may mean that something is revealed about himself or it may merely sow confusion.  Either way hoverFrog is pleased.

  1. How would you order the seven deadly sins (Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride) so that your favourite was first and least favourite was last?
  2. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
  3. What single property of the human race as a whole would you change?
  4. What do you like least about yourself?
  5. What one thing about travelling (short or long distances) makes you most angry?
  6. What frightens you most about the future?
  7. What is the best Halloween costume?
  8. Would you rather be evil or stupid?
  9. How long does it take you to wake up properly?
  10. Assuming that there is life after death, what would you do for eternity?
  11. What one subject would you choose if you were on Mastermind?
  12. Which is creepier: Clowns or animals with human faces?
  13. Which one word would you like to see removed from the English language forever?

It would please immensely hoverFrog if you were to answer these questions.

Third person

The beautific hoverFrog is convinced that the people of the world have today been replaced with identical copies from Tardania.  He is certain of a plot and remains on guard.

Tard (tard) – noun Slang: Disparaging

Any person who is not developmentally disabled, but rather has what is considered normal cognitive faculties but for whatever reason has opted out of using it. Whereas mental retardation is genetic in nature, this form of behavior is environmental usually resulting in too much daytime television, Brittany Spears piped in pop music, and other environmental factors.

-Urban dictionary.

Furthermore the ever honest Mr hoverFrog has been angered by the incompetence of British Telecom and of Tiscali.  He has written both companies very stern letters of complaint.  He feels certain that they will ignore the missives and continue to be incompetent.  He is trying not to let this bother him.  His letters repeated the phrase “This is no acceptable” several times.  Each time he typed this phrase he laughed out loud.

Virgin are taking over his telephone service on Friday afternoon.  He wonders if it isn’t going too far to insist that BT attempt to repair the ongoing fault tomorrow morning.  He hopes that it rains.

Finally he wonders who this third person is and may write a questioning Thursday Thirteen in a moment.

He thanks you for the time that it has taken to read this note and wishes you well.
