1. I don't do many rides at all. See #2.

2. Anything that spins. I have "issues" with my inner ear, and it takes at least 3 days to recover from the dizziness.

3. Sausage and pepper sandwich

4. Soda

5. Scrabble

6. Dora the Explorer

pooxac? No thanks, I've got my lexapro.

Get me that e-ticket baby:
Roller Coaster
Roller Coaster
Roller Coaster


Let me off: Ferris wheel. It goes way too far away from the ground with way too little holding you into the seats.

Favorite: Coney dog

Puh: Salt water taffy

Favorite: Tales of the Arabian Nights Board Game
This is an old, ooold RPG board game that a former boyfriend had. (I wish I'd kept it when I jettisoned him.) You can't find it for sale in the states anymore, which is a huge pity.

Boooring: Any board game that also requires I turn on my television. There are several where you need to use a dvd to play. In my world, board games are in lieu of television.

Favorite ride - roller coaster. The higher, faster and more inverted, the better. A close second would be the Fun House.

Least Favorite - Ferris Wheel. Had a bad experience as a kid.

Best food - sugar donuts.

Worst food - hot dogs (who knows what is in there?)

Favorite board game - Frontier 6 - a wild-west board game. Lots of fun.

Least favorite BG - Monopoly - too long, too boring.

Fav. ride: Rollercoasters, but not the stand up ones. The more loops the better

Least Fav: Ever since reading Something wicked this way comes the carousel (however you spell it) freaks me out a little.

Fav food: mmm Funnel cake! with gooey strawberry goodness

Least Fav: anything on a stick especially corndogs

Fav board game: clue and Risk!

Least Fav: This weird game we had that was like monopoly except it was in outerspace and you colonized planets. It was way too long and boring.

Favorite ride: Rollercoasters....the faster, the higher, the more radical the better. The best are when you get that hangtime because you get those cool negative Gs.

Least Favorite: Hard question because I like all in the interest of answering the question, I'd have to say the Round-about....the ride where you spin while standing against the wal until the floor drops out. And I only say that one because they won't let you crawl around and get upside down on the wall anymore.

Fav. food: The french fries with malt vinager and lotsa salt and ketchup. And a freshly squeezed lemonade to go with it.

Least fav. food: Corn dogs. I'm just not a fan of corndogs at all.

Fav. board game: Once upon a time it was Chug-a-lug. This is a game where you move around the board and land on spots like "Roll the die and drink the number that you roll" and "Light 'em up, you're now in the smoking den".

But nowdays I'd have to say Risk.....or Chutes and Ladders.

Least Fav. BG: Battleship. I recieved a horrendous injury playing that game. Well, it wasn't the game's fault, it was my older sister's fault. Well, maybe it was my fault....I shouldn't have thrown the water from my glass on her when I sunk her destroyer causing her to get so mad that she hit me with her Battleship case and I had to get stitches over my eye.

Favorite amusement park ride? Roller coaster ... scarier the better!

Least favorite amusement park ride? Merry go Round. Snore.

Favorite amusement park food? Cotton Candy ... followed by fried dough and hot jumbo pretzels with lots of salt.

Least favorite amusement park food? Greasy diner-type food: e.g. hot dogs, hamburgers, fries. If I want that, I'll go to a diner. :)

Favorite board game? Trivial Pursuit ... 1980s and later.

Least favorite board game? Monopoly. That ranks up there with mustard.

Favorite amusement park ride? Having participated in the constuction of Universal Studios Japan, I'm partial to themed rides like Jaws and Jurassic Park with their "all Hell breaks loose" moments. Also like roller coasters.

Least favorite amusement park ride? Ready! All together now . . .

It's a world of laughter
A world of tears
It's a world of hopes
And a world of fears
There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all.

Favorite amusement park food? Anything skewered, battered and deep fat fried, e.g. twinkies, cheese cake, mars bars, ice cream, etc.

Least favorite amusement park food? Burgers and fries are almost always subpar.

Favorite board game? Scrabble.

Least favorite board game? Most are okay, but a good parlor game of charades is usually more fun.

Favorite Amusement Park Ride(s): I always liked the waterpark sections best. For non-water rides, I'd probably say roller coasters, as long as they are smooth (not the jerky old wooden ones!)

Least fav: The twisty twirly spinnerupsideouty rides.

I'm amending these nest two, since I don't really do the whole $5 for a corn dog thing.

Favorite fair food: Cheese curds! Batter 'em up and deep fat fry!

Least fav: Cherry slushies

Fav board game: The Settlers of Catan

Least Fav: Trivia games involving pop culture or sports

At 9:33 PM , Blogger Slyeyes said...

Fav rides: anything water related

Least fav: anything designed to max out the barf factor.

favorite fair food: Hasn't been invented yet.

Least fav: Funnel cake and cotton candy.

fav board game: Scrabble or backgammon

least fav: chess. I'm too impatient.

Boo - I'd forgotten all about the Small World ride. The first time I went to Disneyland I was 4. I made my dad sick on the flying Dumbo ride and then insisted on doing Small World 3 times.

I went back at 25. After my day there, I called my parents and apologized.

Favorite amusement park ride? The Anaconda at Kings Dominion. Also, I recall liking Space Mountain at Disney World when I was 15. That was a long time ago.

Least favorite amusement park ride? Anything where you stand. Especially since that kid got killed at Kings Dominion on the standing roller coaster.

Favorite amusement park food? hamburgers, hot dogs,'s all good

Least favorite amusement park food? don't really have a least favorite

Favorite board game? 1) Trivial Pursuit, cause I'm good at it. 2) Scrabble 3) Pictionary

Least favorite board game? Monopoly, because I am bad at it. I'll stop paying attention, and forget to call "Rent!" but people still call "Rent!" on me, so I lose. I am also bad at Clue, but like it anyway.

At 7:43 AM , Blogger punky said...

Ooh .... I'd like to add Pictionary as my second fav game ... because, as Boo says, I'm good at it! :) I'm also pretty ding dang good at Cranium. Oh, and twister!

Disney world is the equivilant of a guided tour with an obnoxious chatty mustard-eating salesman. It is the farthest thing from a vacation that I could ever imagine.

I wanna go on safari!

1. Ferris Wheel, but it looks like I'll be going up alone.

2. Always been to chicken to try the roller coaster, so I can't judge it.. of the ones I have tried, the centrifugal-force type rides make me want to return my favourite food.

3. Probably toffee apples, because you only have it as a treat, although I can't eat too much of it, because it is very sweet. I still love it, though.

4. Hmm.. nah, I'd eat pretty much anything I was offered.

5. I like most of them. Trivial Pursuit, Acquire, Clue & Scattergories would probably be the top 4.. closely followed by Scrabble, Monopoly, and Cranium (except I can't do the arty creative stuff!)

6. Scruples. It's more of a card than a board game, but I've never played it where it hasn't ended in fights and caused division. hate hate hate.

Roller coaster. Although if I want a real wild ride I just let the wife drive the car.

Hate the Ferris wheel. Makes me very uncomfortable.

Love corn dogs and mustard.

Hate cotton candy

Trivial Pursuit is fun. Useless knowledge put to work. I think Jumanji would be fun to try, once.

Monopoly is very low on my list

Favorite Ride: Splash Mountain
Least: Teacups
Food: don't care much one way or the other.
Board game: Trivial pursuit, a game particularly suited to my modest talents; second is chess with my 7 yr old son, who is getting really good!
Least favorite board game: I was really glad when we outgrew Candyland.

May 10: I don't have any answers (for anything, really), I just wanted to say Happy Birthday!

Thank you Peri!!

favorite ride: Coasters, baby. Metal, wood, huge, small, wild, tame. Love 'em all!

least favorite: Ferris Wheel. I don't like heights. Let me clarify - I don't like heights that you can fall from and seriously maim yourself, but not die. I have no problems with ridiculously high things, but a 30 foot ladder gives me the heebie jeebies.

Favorite food: Cotton Candy

Least favorite: Turkey legs. They may be appropriate at a ren-fest, but I just don't think they're amusement park food.

Fav Board Game: Backgammon

Least Fav: Sorry!

Er, risK, that is.

I can't believe I'm the only one on the Ferris Wheel. Somehow I feel so alone..

At 6:17 PM , Blogger punky said...

I'll go on the Ferris Wheel with you, sweetie ... we'll eat goobers (the candy variety) and tell our life stories and get drunk! All on the first go round.
