Terrible Twos

So, yeah. This blog is two years old. I guess it's time for the temper tantrums, right? Do I really have to be potty-trained? Because these diapers are pretty friggin' awesome.

Would this whole blogiversary who-ha be easier to swallow if I told you there's a contest? And the winner would get a Georgia* swag bag? You'd like that, wouldn't you? Of course you would.

This past Christmas, the Ty-man (a.k.a. George Lucas's and Harrison Ford's love child) got this book from Santa:


You all know this is a Star Wars family, so I'm going to ask ten random questions from this book (only from the original trilogy, 'cause I'm old school that way). Based on how many questions you get right, that's how many times I'll put your name in the Randomizer and we'll see which name pops out as the lucky winner! Ya'll, I'm telling you right now, this shit is hard. Like, I go into the bathroom to take care of business and it's so rare I get an answer right that I've given up even touching this damned book. I just pee and go. The Ty-man, on the other hand, is all over this book. I'll hear him in there and I hear the book choosing a question and I hear Ty push A, B, C, or D and I hear DingDingDingDing!!! all. the. frakking. time. That's why he's disqualified from this contest.

Are you guys ready? You have until Monday night, 11:59PM, to comment here with your answers. Now, no cheating! No looking at the comments of others! Here we go:

I love Star Wars, but gave up after the third question. Go ahead and put me down for "C" on each one.

Happy Blogiversary!!! I just turned one a few months ago and L.O.V.E. it.

3. D
4. A

The added benefit is that, of course, I spell out Dada a couple of times. In honor of the Ty-man.

Ty-man said...

Yep, most of those questions were the hardest I've ever seen in the trivia book.

She could have just asked me for the questions, but that would have been too easy.

I choose C for everything.

But really I just want to say congratulations on 2 years. :-)

Melio (MelissaInk) said...

B, A, B, C, B, B, D, C, D.

Those are my husband's guesses. Even as a man who loves Star Wars he said, "Wow, I don't think I'm at that level." Ha ha.

Happy Blogiversary!

marty said...

Inasmuch as I am one of the few people on earth who has not seen a Star Wars movie (unless Spaceballs counts), there is no way I can win.

And even, if I did win, what would I do with the prize?

Merrily Down the Stream said...

I am afraid I retained nothing of the Star Wars stuff and franky that s fine with me (oh, blashpheme!) Happy Anniversary!

A Free Man said...

Well, happy bloggiversary. Or blogday. Or whatever. Congrats.

I would like to win a bag of UGa swag, but that's not what's on offer here. I wouldn't mind a bag of Georgia swag either, but I don't know any of the answers! I thought I knew Star Wars but clearly I don't know shit. I'm going to go watch A New Hope again now.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Everyone - Thanks for the well-wishes and for participating in the trivia! You're all awesome for reading and I appreciate it every day. You all keep me sane and grounded. You let me know I'm not the only quirky adult in the world with something to say. And I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Much love. :)
