Rory’s Friday Four Aces — Just Call Me Treebeard

In his Friday Four series, Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, has once again posed four rather provocative questions for us to ponder.

If the world started ticking backwards how long would it take for you to move forwards time wise?

Well, I’m no scientist, mathematician, or astrophysicist, but if everything around me in the world starting ticking backwards, and I just stood still, wouldn’t I, by definition, move forward in time?

What are three foods you hate with a passion and refuse to eat whatever and also, what is it about these foods that turns your stomach so?

I can’t stand Brussel sprouts. I just don’t like the way they smell or taste. I don’t like raw celery because it tastes like wet, stringy rope — or at least how I imagine wet, stringy rope would taste. I don’t like asparagus because after eating them, my urine smells so bad that it makes me gag.

What is something that everyone looks stupid doing?

Making a duck face.

If you were to have a nickname here in your blog [and different from your Blog Avatar if you use one] that we all called you with your consent, what would you choose and why?

Treebeard.When I was into Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, I really liked that character, Treebeard, an Ent  (beings that closely resembles trees). Treebeard was described as the oldest living thing that still walked beneath the sun in the Middle-earth. In fact, if Treebeard would have been available as a pseudonym, I might have used that instead of Fandango. And no, it’s not because I’m the oldest living thing under the sun. It’s because I’m tall, I have a beard, and I like to believe that, like Treebeard and most Ents, I’m generally a very patient, thoughtful, and deliberate person.

    Blimey, it’s quite astonishing how celery and brussel sprouts are just not liked haha – as to aspargus yeah, it does have that affect. It’s all that damn acid – l love the vegetable but not the rotten like urine smell, totally agree.

    Tall and bearded and patient – so if not Treebeard then just Woody hahaha!! 🙂

    The only vegetable that I don’t like is cooked beets, yuck! Not quite a vegetable but made from a vegetable is another I wont touch – sauerkraut. Oh, I lied. There is another vegetable, or should I say group of vegetables – hot peppers. Good answers Fandango, or should I say Treebeard?

      I’m not a fan of beets, either, but I do like sauerkraut on a hot dog. As to peppers, I don’t like them hot…or, for that matter, green, red, yellow, or orange.
