True For Me, True For You? (Off to School)

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Off to School Week One! I’m glad you were able to find your way to the Dungeons, the place the Slytherin snakes call home. The activity will run from now until September 30th, so keep up with the main HOL forum for more fun games and chat parties! For this ice-breaker, we’re going to learn some new facts about each other. The game works like this:

1.) One person states a fact about themselves.
2.) The next person to post states whether or not that fact is also true about them.
3.) That person then adds a new fact.

Example:
Person A: I once ran a marathon.
Person B: Me too! It was really rewarding.
I baked my sister a cake for her most recent birthday.
Person C: I’m not a huge baker, so I can’t say I’ve done that.
I have read the Harry Potter books seven times.

You can earn 10 beans each for the first two posts you make in this topic for a total of 20 beans overall. Keep an eye out for another beans earning activity to be posted here next week!

Here's my starter fact:
I once ate jellyfish, but I don't remember it.

I also haven't been but it is high on my list of must visit places (providing I bring someone with me willing to deal with all the poisonous critters)

 

I've ridden in a Ferrari (just once....but it was amazing)

I didn't get to see the eclipse either!  (New Jersey was worse-positioned than most of the US for it).

I really enjoy the taste of chocolate.

Languages are fun and I've taken many years of them, but I don't love them per se.    However, I do love etymology. I find it so delightful to track down words to their original meaning. So I guess that is a love of 'language' in and of itself.

 

I love walking along the ocean beach and the salt air and smell of sea water and the wind gusting and almost, but not quite, blowing me over.

I love seas and oceans! Especially sand beaches. And seagulls! I loved waking up to the smell and sounds of the sea when I was in England.

I can't cook very well but just well enough to make myself chicken with veggies and a couple more of my favourite meals.

I also wouldn't consider myself a cook. I know only a handful of dishes. Luckily, Cody does the bulk of the cooking for us!

My grip (for pens/pencils and spoons/forks) is how I was taught to hold a Chinese calligraphy brush because I took Chinese calligraphy as my elective for many years at Chinese school.

I have a kind of similar thing. When I want to write very, very neatly, I find my grip changes to how I was taught to hold the brush for Japanese calligraphy. Any other time, though... chicken scratch. :P

 

Dusk is my favorite time of day.

I can't say I'm currently doing that, as I'm actually currently posting in this thread to avoid my university work!

I've walked on the Great Wall of China.

Sadly I have never been to China.

I have kissed a dolphin on it's nose though!

True for me too!  (Except for the 5 days it takes me to find my bearings in a new place)

 

I consider myself a night owl.
