Blogger's 'Quiz

Here's a fun quiz made up especially for bloggers. The rules are easy. Just post the quiz on your blog and answer the questions, then pass it on to five other bloggers, and link to them in your post. Be sure to link back to the one who sent it to you.

1. Do you attend the Traditional Latin Mass or the Novus Ordo?
I am kissing the Novus Ordo goodbye! On Sunday we are moving to the big city (West Coast) and I will be able to attend the TLM every day, instead of having to drive all day to get to one. Everything is so far away in Canada!

2. If you attend the TLM, how far do you drive to get there?
Oops! I think I answered that already in #1! It's currently a 560 KM round trip. That's 348 miles for all you metrically challenged Americans. The distance is why I only go once a month.

3. If you had to apply a Catholic label to yourself, what would it be?
Terry's got labels! I think I fall into his Traditional Catholic category, with a little sprinkling of rad trad mixed in.

4. Are you a comment junkie?
No doubt. I wasn't until Karin got me hooked on comments by always popping by my blog and chatting with me in the combox. Now I'm a hopeless addict!

5. Do you go back to read the comments on the blogs you’ve commented on?
Almost always! Sometimes there is more going on in the combox than there is in the post. Plus it's a good way to find new blogs to explore.

6. Have you ever left an anonymous comment on another blog?
Once. Who are you, the blogger's police squad?

7. Which blogroll would you most like to be on?
All of them, of course! Although, I've been waiting forever for Carolina Cannonball to add us to her blogroll.

8. Which blog is the first one you check?
Mine are listed alphabetically, so I usually go from A to Z. But Wife & Mom of Two is at the bottom of that list, and we are good buddies, so I often go in reverse order. I can get pretty tired by the time I've made it through my list of blogs! (Anita, aren't you glad I placed under A for Anita instead of V for Victory?)

9. Have you met any other bloggers in person?
Of course! Divine Mercy is my sister, and so is Shirley. It would be fun to have a bloggers get together and invite all the Catholic bloggers. I think we should hold it at Terry's place. Isn't Abbey Roads the centre of the blogging universe? I would love to meet Anita Moore, Karin and my blogging team members, Dr. Bombay and Louie Verecchio. Oh, and also Cavey.

10. What are you reading?
Anything by St. Alphonsus de Liquori. He is the most incredible Catholic writer! Right now, I'm finishing up "Duties and Dignity of the Priest" and then it'll be "Preparation for Death" by this wonderful saint. I'm also reading "Imitation of Christ" (again).

Bonus Question! Has your site been banned by Spirit of Vatican II? If it has, who do you think Father Tim really is?
Salve Regina was banned early on by the illustrious SOVII. It's a great parody site, and Father Tim's banned list hosts a plethora of great Catholic blogs. In fact, most of his banned blogs are on my blogroll. Now, about who Father Tim really is...I used to think Cardinal Mahoney, but now I'm guessing he's really Sister Chittister. Just kidding Father Tim! We all want to know who you really are! When are you going to let the cat out of the bag?

I pass this quiz on to :
1. Karin at Wife & Mom of Two,
2.Anita Moore at V for Victory,
3.Divine Mercy,
4.Sister Mary Martha,
5.Abbey Roads.
and also to Che Lovell at SOVII, cause hey, maybe he'll tell us who Father Tim really is!

Divine Mercy said...

nope, not on spv2's ban list.

Therese said...

When I first saw spv2's web page I didn't realize it was a parody. It is pretty funny.

Anyway I just wanted to let you know I pinched your skeleton picture for a post on my blog.

paramedicgirl said...

Therese, go ahead and use the pic. Someone emailed it to me, but I'm not sure where they got it from. It's pretty funny!

Che' Lovell said...

Thanks for tagging me!

For those of you who wish to banned by SOV2 but haven't been, the trick is to go to the SOV2 web-site, make some comments and lobby to be banned. This approach always works. As Che' I can also do what I can to get you banned.

Father Tim said...

Hey, Paramedic Girl! Gee - it's real neat that you've included SOV2 on one of those "meme" things, but I think you're just calling it a "meme" to make fun of my good friend Dick Dawkins - so stop it!

Also, in the hyperthetical condition that "Fr Tim" was actually a character, then the person who pretends to be "Fr Tim" would be very reluctant to divulge his/her/its secret identity, as doing so might make some people who know him/her/it feel like they were personal targets of the SOV2 parody (if it is parody). Hence it would be best for him/her/it to create many layers of obfuscation to prevent disclosure of that secret identity.

As long as Ché keeps his trap shut!

Father Tim! Thanks for stopping by! You're such a character! ;}
