Silly Random Blogthings

I tell ya, I crack myself up sometimes, and I can't even share it with anyone.

As I was planning my post for tonight, something quick and fun, I found myself over at the fun Blogthings. As I perused the multiple titles of quizzes, I found myself having to do a double take on the quiz titles.

Have you ever read something completely wrong, only to find out you were WAY off? Here's some of my titles I came up with:

Blogthings Quiz: Are you Emo?
What I saw: Are you Elmo?

Blogthings Quiz: Could you be Violent?
What I saw: Should you be violent?

Blogthings Quiz: What kind of sandal are you?
What I saw: What kind of scandal are you?

Blogthings Quiz: Are you a Fit Girl?
What I saw: Are you a Fat Girl?

Blogthings Quiz: Are you a Fake Girl?
What I saw...again: Are you a Fat Girl?

Has anyone ever really looked at some of these quizzes?

They ask the real hard questions that "Inquiring Minds" want to know. Tell me readers, aren't you dying to know what my peanut butter and jelly sandwich says about me? I'll give you a says I need a tall glass of milk.

In one question it asks, "Are you a Hot Chick?" and then shortly thereafter has a question, "Do you have low self esteem?" Oh, and let's make sure we understand the difference between how our "INTRAPERSONAL" relationships rate, versus our "INTERPERSONAL" relationships.

Fear not readers...I will be posting more of these quizzes, because I'm all about the occasional silliness. I just had to take a break from the regularly scheduled silliness to point out the obvious silliness.

While you ponder that, I'm going to have to check out the quiz: "Are you Destined to be Overweight?". (aka...Are you a Fat Girl?)

Last quiz title on Grandy's post:
Are you Destined to be overweight?

What I saw: Are you designed to be overweight? What the...???

hehehe...seems you and I have the same reading disability today...

Good Afternoon Grandy,
Oh my goodness, this is so funny. I miss read things all the time. I was visiting a blogging friend earlier today and I had to look twice at her title. I thought it first said Bikini, but it said Bikin'. LOL. So, don't feel bad, your not alone by any means. Oh let me tell ya, I'm a Hot Chick. ROFLMBO. At least that is what my DH tells me. I can't wait for you to post some of the quizzes. I know they will be fun. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

So it's not just me??? I've been doing this for about two years now, and it's been even worse this year. I wish I could remember some of what I *thought* I read right now because I cracked myself up too.

The other thing I've been doing is using the wrong forms of words that I KNOW how to use correctly. Like two, to, too, or there, their, or right, write... I TOTALLY KNOW which is which, but in the past year I'm shocked, when I proofread, at how many times I've typed in the COMPLETELY wrong one! Especially "right" and "write"!!!???

Mrs. G. said...

I have not seen these, but I am famous for seeing words that aren't there. My mind just automatically leaps to the worst. Or the silliest.

Grandy said...

Dens~ Stop the slaying!! Reading disability today? Try always lady!

Karen~ Oh yea, the bikini bikin thing can be a challenge for us "hot chicks".

Melissa~ No way is it just you. And...could I ever spell the word Wierd right? (not even sure I did it just now)

Mrs. G.~ Mine leaps straight to the gutter and I have to climb out. ;)

Sandy C. said...

LOL! I totally misread some of those the same way you did ;)

onthecurb said...

Oh, I do that all the time. However, being a perv at heart, I somehow twist everything into something related to genitalia, bodily functions, or S.E.X.

OHmommy said...

Seriously, this happens to me all the time. I have to rub my eyes and re-read.

You are funny! Thanks for the laugh.

Linda said...

Dysexics, Untie!

krissy said...

Funny! I didn't know of this blog quiz thing but I do now! Look out!

Sorry if you got in trouble at work (LOL). You should know better by now that I'm full of surprise's!

Your still the best Grandy!

Mike Golch said...

I'm sooooo glad that I'm not along with misreading I wish that I did not transpose things.what can I say dyslexica runs in the family.

Melissa said...


What it said:
"Hello to all!"

What I saw:
"Hell to all!"

Grandy said...

Sandy~ Glad to know I'm NOT alone!

Dee~ Ditto...My perv mind goes there A LOT

OHMommy~ *still rubbing*

Linda~ Anem!!

Krissy~ Looking out for you all over, lady!! ;)

Mike~ Guess we gotta try and have fun with it.

Melissa~ I vote the latter!!!!

I can so relate! The mind CAN play funny tricks on us especially when tired. As for the silliness of the Blogthings themselves ... actually, this morning I considered making my T-13 a list of Blogthings I'd never consider answering ever ... but sanity returned and I posted Quotes to Consider instead. The funny thing was afterwards I found a comment from Melissa on a Blogthing I posted at Small Reflections with a clickable link to (you guessed it) a Blogthing to find out how addicted I am to blogthings. LOL Turns out I'm 45% "addicted but not totally dependent" ... sheesh! It's a scary thought indeed.
Hugs and blessings,

Grandy said...

storyteller~ Addicted to blogthings? Nah...

Tina Coruth said...


Those are funny. Sometimes I can't believe the stuff I think I am reading only to find out I have misread. (Well, the old eyesight just isn't what it used to be). I wish I could think of some of them, but then the old memory isn't what it used to be, either. LOL Thanks for the laughs!!


Mike Golch said...

I cannot help this as to some of the commentsGod forgive me!"the old gray mare aint what she used to bee.............",But than again this old dog is not up to snuff any more anyway.
Please every body take this in the way it was ment in jest.Please don't hang me in computer effigy.Mike

I had to look up this thread again. Ready for this one?

A fortune cookie fortune I just read. First I thought it said:

"A smart girl can bring joy to the whole family."

"That's odd." I thought. "Did I read that correctly? What a strange thing to write for a fortune cookie fortune. "A smart girl can bring joy to the whole family?"

So I read it again. Ok, no... that says "small." Er... "A small girl can bring joy to the whole family?" -This was wrong in so many ways...

Guess what it really says:

"A SMALL GIFT can bring joy to the whole family."
