New Feature

I'm thinking about doing a new regular feature on my blog - something kind of like "Wednesday Thoughts," although I haven't decided if I want it to be a weekly thing or not. I think it could be fun though! Since you're the ones who will be reading it (presumably), I thought I'd get your feedback on what you think sounds interesting! Here are some options:

1. Would you rather? I looooove asking people would you rather questions. I think you can not only learn a lot about a person, but you can also get some really good conversations going. Here's an example question to give you an idea of what you could expect from this feature:

Would you rather....

* travel with a freaky circus for a month in a foreign country as the personal assistant to the bearded lady (with additional work cleaning up after the elephants and snakes),

or

* train a dolphin for a show at Seaworld - the show is in one week and you have to work alone, using only the information you currently have about dolphins. Oh yeah, and it's going to be a packed show.

2. Another feature idea could be a dating question. You know I have TONS of these. What's a good first date idea? Does it matter if you like the same t.v. shows? How much older or younger would you date? Questions like these and many more.

3. T.V. season is starting again which means that for two nights, I will be a slave to the t.v. It also means I will be looking to talk about my favorite shows with anyone who will listen. Sadly, this will not include Lost anymore (my voice just cracked when I wrote that), but I will still have several other shows to discuss. And I could discuss them with none other than y. o. u. What do you think?

Those are three ideas I'm tossing around, but I'd be open to others too. What do you think?

How about what's your favorite [ ] and why? I'd be interested in what people's favorite books, foreign languages, soda pops, songs, etc. are.

Elizabeth Downie said...

I was actually thinking about doing something like that, only what is your LEAST favorite - cause that really interests me too. Maybe we'll do both. :)

Katherine said...

Yeah, I like Mom's suggestion and your addendum! But my favorite is definitely the Would You Rather? option!! You've trained me well to crack up at those (I can never believe you can come up with such ridiculous options so quickly!!) and then to ponder my answer very seriously. Go with that one!

I like the would you rather a lot. I also think you may be able to combine it with TV.... For instance, I don't know that this question comes up much, but I prefer (or rather) Damon Salvatore of Vampire Diaries over Edward or Jacob from Twilight anyday.....

I like them all really, but I do love tv quite a bit...

Let's do a "What's your least favorite _____" That would be awesome.

Heather said...

I like #1 or #3.

The "What's your Favorite" sounds cool too.

Looking forward to the first installment.

Would you rather... it's so you, never been done before, and you'll never want for ideas. Or maybe you would rather not:D

Sarah said...

I'd like to discuss that crazy bearded man-lady picture you have posted!! :) Maybe you could put up the most random pictures you find and have your readers make up captions, and you pick the best one each week! :) (Oh, and as Katherine said, I give your "would you rather" dilemmas a LOT of thought, and I pick the dolphin one, just fyi!). :)

I would be willing to tour a foreign country for a month, impersonating a woman, as long as I had a personal assistant.

Gotta go! Chuck is starting in 20 minutes.

I love playing "would you rather"!

I'm also a fan of "F, Marry, Kill" and "Power to the People"

I agree with everyone else- I love a good game of "would you rather". Alex always refuses to play with me.

My friends and I would play "who would you rather date" in high school. We would always pick the dorkiest/creepiest guys to choose from, so it was an almost impossible choice to make.
