Questions- ask away!

19 Apr

When I was in college, my favorite drinking game was Kings. Some people call it Circle of Death; some call it King’s Cup. I am sure there are other names, but for the sake of this post and because this is my blog, we are going to call it Kings.

Any ways, you play by arranging a deck of cards in a circle around a cup facedown. Each person draws a card and each card corresponds to a rule. Drawing a King requires you to pour some of what you are drinking into the middle cup and the person who draws the fourth King has to drink what is in the cup. The other rules range from having to drink in waterfall order to busting a rhyme. However, one of my favorite rules is Question. The person who draws this card has to ask any person at the table a question. They have to respond with another question- related or otherwise- to someone else at the table and so on and so forth until someone is stumped or is laughing so hard they can’t answer.

I always won at this rule (if winning means coming up with the most absurd question to stump my friends).

We played so often that the apartment which was our main meeting spot had a standard set of rules I’d made hung on the fridge. People soon became sick of playing Kings. Or maybe they just stopped wanting to play when I was around because I always “won”! Occasionally I manage to get an unsuspecting group of friends to play with me now, but the victims players are catching on.

I know it’s not because people just want to avoid me altogether, because I’m obviously popular. I say this because I was just nominated for my 7th Liebster (See 1-2 here and 3-6 here)! This is crazy! I’m beginning to think I am doing something right. Everyone check out Two Bored Housewives. Thanks ladies!


Side Note: I thought it would be fun if you all asked me questions which I can respond to for my R post. Get it? Questions for Q and Responses for R? Ahhh… this is going to make my life so easy if people actually participate. If nobody asks a question I will be forced to come up with another idea and now that we are more than halfway through the A-Z Challenge I am running low on those.

PS: That wasn’t really a side note. It was actually a plea for help. I told you I was officially out of my mind.  Help me! Ask questions!

Ask away- Happy Friday!!

Today was Day Seventeen (or Day Q) of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge

Hoping you’ll follow me on Bloglovin or Twitter! New victims friends make me happy!

    Here are a few questions from which you can choose:
    Do you have the rest of your A to Z posts planned?
    Do you think you’ll do this again next year?
    Which post have you enjoyed writing the most?
    The least?
    Of all the other A to Z posts written by other bloggers, which one would you recommend to your readers?

    You want questions? Questions I got. I just found a crazy survey which is made up of 5000 questions. Check it out at if you feel like it. I’ve been having fun answering them. I just came across this one, which has me stumped:

    Would you rather marry someone rich just for their money, or live in the streets with someone you truly love?

    This is a great idea!

    My question:
    How did you get popular?

    Here are a few Questions that you can answer if you feel like it:
    1. Favourite author?
    2. Fav quote?
    3. Which is the most embarrassing moment that has happened to you?
    4. What are some of your pet peeves?


  5. JccKeith April 19, 2013 at 1:20 am #

    Alright, I don’t know if you can come up with an answer that starts with an R or a Q but perhaps. What is your favorite chemical?

    That game sounds familiar, I think I’ve seen in on tv or in a movie maybe…

    Anyway, my question for you:
    “What would you do differently if all your actions were anonymous?”

    Oh, wow, I cannot believe I had forgotten all about this game until I read this post. We played this ALL THE TIME in college! We did call it Circle of Death. This was such a fun post with lots of fun (and hazy) flashbacks for me. Haha. Hm, a question, a question–I love the author question that someone left above. That makes me think of BEING an author, which is my biggest dream–the only one I have left to accomplish before I make a new Lifetime Goals list. 🙂 So here’s my question for you: What’s your biggest dream, the thing that you most want to accomplish (that you haven’t yet)?

    Where is the best/worst place you ever lived? No necessarily city (but that would be interesting too) but apt that always had leaky faucets or something like that.

    I totally remember that game!! I don’t think we called it Kings, but I could be wrong…you know, when alcohol is involved the memory fades! ;)-Ashley

    What’s your favorite meal? If you could have lunch with a famous person, who would it be? What about a dead famous person? If you could be an animal, which animal would you be? What’s your favorite TV show?

  11. Taylor April 19, 2013 at 12:00 pm #

    Okay I didn’t read the other replies since I’m on my phone… But my question for you is this: would you rather be rich or just well off?

  12. Kimberly H. Smith April 19, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    Congrats on another Liebster! We always played “I Never…” and “Truth Or Dare” drinking games in college. So questions…Which of your blog posts has received the most views? How do you manage your time during the week? What advice would you give to a new blogger? Happy Friday!

  13. Mina B. April 19, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    What are your time 5 websites you visit every single day?
    What is your favorite thing to make for dinner?
    Do you have any query stories you could share?

    First of all, hello, I hope you are safe. Keep us posted. Watching the livestream and praying for all of you in Boston.

    I love rd that game too, in college 🙂

    What is your favorite drink?

  16. Dana April 19, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

    I’ve never heard of Kings – we played Asshole a lot (sorry, am I allowed to use that word on your blog?) I always lost.

    Question: Do you put the drinking glasses in your cabinets upright or upside down?

  17. Ruchira April 19, 2013 at 4:41 pm #

    Sure, you must be doing something right that you got 7 awards 🙂

    Carry on, my friend!

  18. dancinmoma April 19, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

    This made me laugh! I believe I did play this along with a dice game called “three man.” Oh the college days! 🙂 Anyways, I saw the link to your blog on the good acorn fb site and of course, following you now. 🙂 Love to support others. Hope you can stop by newer blog at Have a great Friday. 🙂

    • The Next Step April 19, 2013 at 7:49 pm #

      oh lord, I remember “three man” – or better yet, I *don’t* remember “three man” but I know I’ve played

  19. Tiffany (@tiff_gee) April 19, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

    I so miss playing drinking games. I don’t know why I ever stopped!

  20. Julie Chenell DeNeen April 19, 2013 at 8:56 pm #

    Holy crap! That’s a lot of liebsters. You must be doing something right!

  21. T. A. Woods April 19, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

    I remember this game as Kings and Circle of Death. That was a rough one, but so much fun. Congrats on seven awards!

    Here’s a Q for you to A: Remembering: Which childhood toy do you have the best memory associated?
