Lazy Sunday XLI

And here we are, with the 41st Edition of Lazy Sunday!

Last week was a tough one. There were actually three references that nobody got correct. The first person to email me at my first name at my last name dot com with the correct answers to all 3 will also win last week’s prize, which was a six-pack of gourmet popcorn from Dale & Thomas. Here are the three references with one hint each:

1. My roommate and I once:
Well, to be fair, it was roommates, and they helped me get together with a girl, even though they were a bit gross.
Hint: The roommates might not be humans.

11. If you visit my hometown:
If you’re from Cleveland, you’ll feel right at home.
Hint: This hometown and Cleveland have something in common that is very unique.

15. If I could have any car it would be:
A magical red car that I can turn into.
Hint: This is not a television show for adults and it’s not longer on air.

You can find the rest of last week’s answers, scores and contest winner in an extended entry, but now it’s time for today’s Lazy Sunday contest! This week’s prize is a box full of sweet 70s sensations, from Mike and Ikes to O’Henrys and other classics!

Everyone has a chance at winning, so don’t be shy! The questions may be hard, but everyone who’s between the ages of 16 and 80 should be able to get at least one correct – I promise.

The rules:

It’s very simple. I go through my Myspace friends and pick one of their survey bulletins and answer 15 of the questions. Every answer contains a reference to a movie, a television show, or a song. Just guess as many as you can – some will be laughably easy and some will be very difficult. Every correct answer is like a raffle ticket – you get one chance to win per correct answer. If you get 1 right, your name goes in the proverbial hat. If you get 10 right, your name goes in ten times. Et cetera. You’re on the honor system – try not to Google or look at other people’s answers!

The contest ends Tuesday at midnight EST. I’ll give the correct answers and the winner on the following Sunday.

Ready? Here we go!


1. Where do you go when you need to just get away?
My happy place.

2. Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
Yes. I think I survived that trainwreck for a purpose. To fulfill a destiny.

3. Who is the one person you can always turn to?
My Mocha Bear

4. Have you ever won a raffle?
I don’t enter raffles, ok? They fuck you when you buy the ticket, and they fuck you when they draw the name and you don’t win, ok? They fuck you and they know that you won’t know you got fucked, ok?

5. Have you ever sang in front of a large audience?
Well, I tried to get people to join me in “3 Coins in a Fountain” but it didn’t work out.

6. Favorite school field trip as a kid?
The only one I went on was when I peed my pants.

7. Who do you wake up for in the morning?
I wake up just for the chance to gaze upon the face of my lovely Laura! Too bad her policeman father hates me so.

8. Do you think that global warming is happening?
It can’t rain all the time.

9. Have you or would you ever use a ouija board?
Maybe to ask my late fiancee Susan to see if she really was a lesbian before we got engaged.

10. Have you ever pretended you were happy around your friends but weren’t?
No. I smile like I mean it.

11. Where would you most like to visit?
A small burnt-out town in New Jersey run by an old crazy judge and his fucked-up family.

12. Do you think your ex still likes you?
Well, she threw a shark at me, so probably not.

13. Have you ever had a pet fish?
I was going to get one, but then a pelican came in the window and in the commotion, my fish got away down the sink.

14. What is the craziest thing you’ve done with your best friend?
I peed on his silk shirt so we could break out of jail.

15. What’s your favorite thing to do over the summer?
Come up from my hiding place at the bottom of the lake and kill any people who are doing drugs, drinking, or having sex.


And here are the answers and winners from last week’s contest :

First, see how you did by viewing this Google spreadsheet. Dave and Hilly got the most correct, with 11 right each!:

Next, here are the questions and answers:

1. My roommate and I once:
Well, to be fair, it was roommates, and they helped me get together with a girl, even though they were a bit gross.
This one’s still open!

2. Never in my life have I:
Before last week, I’d never gotten conjunctivitis from a pillow.
Knocked Up

3. High school was:
Cool until a lot of my friends died when that bus crashed into the ocean.
Veronica Mars

4. When I am nervous I:
I smell my armpits like this.
Superstar! or SNL

5. My hair is:
Well, I like my hair, even though I know cornrows don’t look that good on hot white women.
10

6. When I was 5:
When I was 5, I loved to play with my friend Chuck. This was before I killed her dad, of course.
Pushing Daisies

7. By this time next year:
I will have found out who killed that girl, wrapped her in plastic, and left her by the water.
Twin Peaks

8. I have a hard time understanding:
I still don’t understand how your traffic laws work. Yellow means go real fast?
Starman

9. You know I like you if:
I like you if I cho-cho-choose you.
The Simpsons

10. My ideal breakfast is:
Mr. Breakfast!
Pee Wee’s Big Adventure

11. If you visit my hometown:
If you’re from Cleveland, you’ll feel right at home.
Still open!

12. If you spend the night at my house:
You might get locked in, and watch out for those moving glass walls!
13 Ghosts

13. I shouldn’t:
I shouldn’t have opened the box.
Se7en

14. Last night I:
Charged people to see my friend’s underwear.
Sixteen Candles

15. If I could have any car it would be:
A magical red car that I can turn into.
Still open!

Here’s how I chose the winner:

First, I entered everyone’s answers into a spreadsheet, giving 1 point for each correct answer and 0 points for each wrong answer. The total number of points equaled the person’s “raffle tickets” for the drawing.

Then I created a randomized list using Random.org of every “raffle ticket” – basically each person’s name was repeated as many times as they had right answers. This gave me a random list of 104 entries.

Finally, using Random.org again, I asked it to generate a random integer between 1 and 104. It chose #23.

#23 is my winner.

(drumroll please)

Congratulations to Jay!
