Richardology – A study of the author of Forbidden Planet

In the past I have invited fellow bloggers to lie for me, to participate in a friend's survey and to ask for prayers.

This time around, I invite you to fill in the blanks. I got the meme from Hotel Solace a long time ago.

Cut and paste the paragraph below and fill in the blanks with the appropriate adjectives/ nouns /verbs/phrases. You can be brutally honest about this - I promise you would not be silenced after this exercise. :)

In case you are wondering, this is NOT a narcissistic attempt to fish for compliments. Negative comments will not be censored. The objective of this word game is to see how creative you guys are, and what you REALLY think of me.

Can be quite amusing to see what you come up with. Here goes....


I ___(1)____ Richard.

Richard is ____(2)____.

Richard thinks a lot about ____(3)____.

When I think of ____(4)____, I think of Richard.

If I were alone in a room with Richard, I would ____(5)____.

I think Richard should ____(6)____.

Richard needs ____(7)____.


I want to ___(8)_____ Richard.

If I could describe Richard in a word: ___(9)_____.

Leave your answers in the comment box - and blow me away with your imagination and honesty!

But wait, that's not all!

Which of these words will you use to describe me? Why?

1. Moon
2. Sky
3. Sand
4. Snow
5. Road

Leave your answers in the same comment box! The keys to the words will be revealed next week.

Water

You can be calm and placid, but your depths speak great volumes. At times, you will be stirred, riding your emotions on the wave. Your knowledge is as vast as the horizon, and your words make ripples in people's lives. You bask and shimmer in the sunlight - and is an inspiration to all. In the evenings, you still your heart and wait, meditating, reflecting and thinking about the stuff that matters most.
