Hehe, poor Kiwis. They so do like to think everything they have and do is unique to them :hammer:


Okay, what is/are jandals? I'm so hopelessly clueless!


Sounds like a new line of footwear to me. I can just see the ads now.

Remember those times when you only saw one pair of footprints in the sand ? Thats when you wear wearing Jandals. Walk like the Son of The Lord. Walk in Jandals

1 - What colour would you describe yourself as being?
Black? Haha.

2 - What song would you describe as your karaoke song? (You know the one you sing in the shower, or in the car at the top of your lungs, windows wound *up* and would secretly love to sing up on stage with a real microphone and audience instead of a hairbrush and your reflection in the mirror)
"Motherlovers" by the Lonely Island. It's catchy.

3 - First thought upon seeing/hearing the Conchords for the first time. In 5 words or less.
"Hmmmm.... heh. Hahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAH! YES!"

4 - What does this mean to you? :chick:
Baggin some chicks duuuude! *high five!*

5 - Why should I avoid trees?
You shouldn't! Climb em! Remember how fun climbing trees was? I miss being a kid.

6 - How did you celebrate your last landmark (18,21, 40...) birthday?
Uh, I guess my last landmark was 21. Um, didn't do anything special. I think I had school or something, I recall it was kind of a sucky day. The following day I went out to eat with my mom, little brother and great grandmother. I suppose other people get drunk on their 21st, but I don't drink.

7 - Have you ever wondered if Jemaine or Bret have middle names and if so what do you think they might be?
Oh snap... you just exploded my mind. Middle names! I think Jemaine's middle name is Bret and Bret's middle name is Jemaine. So they'd be Jemaine Bret Clement and Bret Jemaine McKenzie.

8 - If you could replace a leading actor or actress in any film, what film would it be and why?
I'd replace the vampire dude in Twilight with someone really fugly or old. Because without the hunky dude factor nobody would care about those movies and I wouldn't have to hear about them all day every day.

9 - You can have a day off from your life and swap with someone else. Anyone. Famous or unknown. What would you do and where would you go?
Uh, George Clooney maybe? I'd just bang hot chicks all day pardon my French.

10 - Is this a test and if so do you think you passed or failed?
I passed with flying colors. I don't fail tests. Unless they're math tests. Sometimes I fail math tests.

Are you going through the archives or something?!

:lol:

I'm glad you did...gives me something to do whilst at work (ya know, other than work...)

Haha, this bit does my head in though....
Oh snap... you just exploded my mind. Middle names! I think Jemaine's middle name is Bret and Bret's middle name is Jemaine. So they'd be Jemaine Bret Clement and Bret Jemaine McKenzie.

1 - What colour would you describe yourself as being?
Purple...deep purple, or red, or black...any bruisey colour :)

2 - What song would you describe as your karaoke song? (You know the one you sing in the shower, or in the car at the top of your lungs, windows wound *up* and would secretly love to sing up on stage with a real microphone and audience instead of a hairbrush and your reflection in the mirror)

One on the left has a large head (sorry over 5 words...)

Probably was my 21st, I just went out to dinner with friends and family...nothing special really!

7 - Have you ever wondered if Jemaine or Bret have middle names and if so what do you think they might be?
I imagine Jemaine to have a Maori sounding name or European...like Jemaine Xavier or Jemaine Verlaine :P Bret would something quite boring like Bret John or Bret Peter or Bret Paul or Angus or similar!

8 - If you could replace a leading actor or actress in any film, what film would it be and why?
I'd replace Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider...yeah, I wanna look as hot as she does.

9 - You can have a day off from your life and swap with someone else. Anyone. Famous or unknown. What would you do and where would you go?
I'd swap with Vladimir Putin, Russian ex-Pres, I want to know his secrets. He fascinates me.

A thread I didn't even know existed! :D

1 - What colour would you describe yourself as being?
Purple

2 - What song would you describe as your karaoke song? (You know the one you sing in the shower, or in the car at the top of your lungs, windows wound *up* and would secretly love to sing up on stage with a real microphone and audience instead of a hairbrush and your reflection in the mirror)
Running up that hill-Kate Bush

3 - First thought upon seeing/hearing the Conchords for the first time. In 5 words or less.
What the hell is this? (I was hooked soon after)

4 - What does this mean to you? :chick:
It means someone has found a creative use for that emoticon.

5 - Why should I avoid trees?
You shouldn't. They're the best thing in the entire world! You should hug their bark-y goodness instead. You know you want to...

6 - How did you celebrate your last landmark (18,21, 40...) birthday?
I watched my boyfriend sleep and read a book.

7 - Have you ever wondered if Jemaine or Bret have middle names and if so what do you think they might be?
You know...I've never wondered that. But, now that you mention it. Jemaine Gustav Clement and Bret ZippySpaceTweezers McKenzie Yes...that feels right!

8 - If you could replace a leading actor or actress in any film, what film would it be and why?
Maggie Gyllenhaal in the Secretary and that's confidential. :wink:

9 - You can have a day off from your life and swap with someone else. Anyone. Famous or unknown. What would you do and where would you go?
Tori Amos and where wouldn't I go? I'm Tori Freakin Amos bow to me you inbred hobo shavers! Hmm... it's probably for the best that I'm not Tori.

10 - Is this a test and if so do you think you passed or failed?
It's not a test, it's a survey therefore passing or failing is rendered irrelevant due to the distinction.

Don't Stop Believing - Journey

The bigger guy has huge lips. :lol:

4 - What does this mean to you? :chick:
:hrm:

:lol:

:roll2:

5 - Why should I avoid trees?

If they have snow on them it's pretty much a guarantee that one day, while you're just taking a stroll under a tree, BAM, all of the snow winds up on your head. At least in Canada that happens.

6 - How did you celebrate your last landmark (18,21, 40...) birthday?

Nothing too special, nice dinner with the family...ooh, I went to the basketball game that day too.

7 - Have you ever wondered if Jemaine or Bret have middle names and if so what do you think they might be?

Wow, never occurred to me. Jemaine's would be some really random, obscure name that would be unheard of in North America...and I think Bret's would rhyme with his first name. And would have to do with animals. So it would be Bret Pet Mckenzie.


8 - If you could replace a leading actor or actress in any film, what film would it be and why?
Ooh, Evan Rachel Wood in Across the Universe. You get to sing all the time AND go out with Jim Sturgess.


9 - You can have a day off from your life and swap with someone else. Anyone. Famous or unknown. What would you do and where would you go?
Oh man, tough one...I'd probably like to swap with someone who lives in a warm climate and has a lot of money. Nice weather and money is a good combination.

10 - Is this a test and if so do you think you passed or failed?
I probably failed. I dunno.

I totally misunderstood the "if you could replace any actor" question, haha, I thought it meant with another actor/actress not myself. In that case I'd switch places with Matt Dillon in Wild Things, for obvious guy reasons.

1 - What colour would you describe yourself as being?

Image

Because sea green happens to be my favorite color and it's a coincidence that 3/24 is my birthday.

2 - What song would you describe as your karaoke song? (You know the one you sing in the shower, or in the car at the top of your lungs, windows wound *up* and would secretly love to sing up on stage with a real microphone and audience instead of a hairbrush and your reflection in the mirror)

The Breaks – Kurtis Blow. I don’t really know. I’ve never sung karaoke. I don’t even know what qualifies as a good karaoke song.

3 - First thought upon seeing/hearing the Conchords for the first time. In 5 words or less.

I am amused.

4 - What does this mean to you? :chick:

I imagine that this is what Sherry does for fun when she's not spending time with her family or tending to the website.

5 - Why should I avoid trees?

You shouldn’t.

6 - How did you celebrate your last landmark (18,21, 40...) birthday?

I worked a closing shift at Borders on my 21st. On my break, I went to the nearest bar and ordered one drink before returning back to work. Landmark? Not so much.

7 - Have you ever wondered if Jemaine or Bret have middle names and if so what do you think they might be?

Well, I now know that Bret's middle name is Peter. I want to know what Jemaine's middle name is now! But honestly, before I read this I didn't think about it.

8 - If you could replace a leading actor or actress in any film, what film would it be and why?

Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone and Home Alone 2. Why? Because I can’t come up with a real answer right now and this is the funniest thing I could think of. Plus, I could add “child star” to my list of accomplishments.

9 - You can have a day off from your life and swap with someone else. Anyone. Famous or unknown. What would you do and where would you go?

I instantly thought of Miranda. Ideally, it would have to be on a day when Jemaine is “in the mood” and doesn’t have to work. I probably shouldn’t tell you what we’d do. :wink: But that’s such a boring answer. I want to come up with something better.

10 - Is this a test and if so do you think you passed or failed?

:dunno:

Ha, really Bret's middle name is Peter?! That was one of my guesses! I knew it had to be some boring Anglo name!
