MILKSHAKES AND BOOK SPINE POETRY.

Having been abandoned by Husband dearest for the day (altogether 'ahhhh') on Saturday I resigned myself to an hour and a half of Big Brother on the TV, reading and browsing the blogosphere - I know (sighs) its hard but someone has to do it.

Anyway, whilst visiting my blogger buddies I came across this FUN POST over at Mama Zen's The Zen of Motherhood site.

What kind of a milkshake am I? Hmm, I wonder.


You are fair, principled and very tolerant. 
You have a strong personality, but others still appreciate you.
You know your own tastes and values. 
You couldn't be someone else if you tried.
You are intensely passionate, especially about causes and people you believe in. 
You are very idealistic.
You try to live your life with a higher purpose. 
You want every one of your days to mean something.

Guessed yet? 

Need a clue?

Yeah, given that its rumoured that I have this running through my veins instead of blood, would it surprise you to know I'm a .......

Chocolate milkshake.

So what about you, what kind of a milkshake are you? Take the quiz HERE to find out and be sure to let us know.

And talking of chocolate, don't you just love this ......


And now for one I made found earlier ....

Welcome to Kate, The Midnight Book Girl, who recently stopped by Pen and Paper.

What a great blog she has, I love her header and THIS POST on Book Spine Poetry which for those of you who don't know is a meme in which, yeah you guessed, you create a line of poetry using the spines of books.

Sound like fun?

I thought so and so, without further ado, here is my attempt using some of the books recently received for review.

Speaking from among the bones,
The last tears of Scotland,
Three Kings - One Throne!
Hubble Bubble
And the soft wind blows
The Devil's Ribbon.

Not bad though I do say so myself.

I took the quiz at MZ's and came out as a banana milkshake. The description fit me in a lot of ways, but in reality I'd never order that flavor. Give me vanilla or caramel!

I think your poetry came out quite well. I'll have to look at my list and see if there are any possibilities.

Okay...here's my quick attempt:

A Sea of Troubles, Willful Behavior
The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break
Smokin' Seventeen
Dying Gasp

Very good Kelly.

Ooh I like the book spine poetry. Always a fun idea, though I've yet to do it.

I am a coffee milkshake apparently; parts of it fit me but not all. I do LOVE mocha ice cream though which tastes like mocha coffee. :)

I'm banana, but I want to be chocolate!

Suko said...

I'm a strawberry milkshake (at least for today). :)

Excellent book spine poem! I did one in April, for national poetry month. It really is a fun exercise.

Love the poetry and the baby with the chocolate

You are happy to go your own way in life. You've always felt a little different from everyone else.
You are content to have your own thing going on... you just don't like getting attention for it!

You love variety and new experiences. You are quite creative and experimental.
You believe that there is a lot to still be discovered in this world, and you're hoping to find some of it.

Yep, I'm bananas! :D

Btw, I so need to check out my book spines for some poetry. Fun!

I'm a banana milkshake, which is perfect, because I love homemade banana milkshake! :)

Jinky said...

Intriguing titles put together.

Blond Duck said...

I thought chocolate! I win!

Brian Joseph said...

Fun little quiz. It looks like I am banana...

brizmus said...

Me, too, I'm chocolate! which is appropriate, as it's also possibly running through my veins. And speaking of, I have I cake to ice. . .

DMS said...

I love quizzes! Off to take this one and see what type of milkshake I am. :) Thanks for sharing!

DMS said...

Turns out I am a banana milkshake. It seems pretty accurate. :)

Seems good. I have my limitations at poetry.
I guess you did it commendable.
