scattergories

I saw this over at Mar's...and thought it was fun....Try it yourself and let me know if you do!
The game is SCATTERGORIES ... and it's harder than it looks! Here are the rules:
*Use the 1st letter of your first name to answer each of the questions.
*They MUST be real places, names, things ...NOTHING made up!
*If you can't think of anything, skip it.
* You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl name question.
* If your name happens to start with the same letter as mine, sorry, but you can't use my answers!

My Name: Naomi

1. Famous Singer/Band: Nina Simone - Fabulous singer!
2. 4 letter word: Nice
3. Street: Normandie Avenue
4. Color: Navy - A color that goes with almost every other color, in wearing apparell that is....
5. Gifts/Presents: Necklace - Diamonds? (lol) Not for me.
6. Vehicle: Nissan - Never owned one but they are out there on the roads and the Freeways....
7. Things in a Souvenir Shop: Nail Clippers (Antique), Novelties - Well, that's the best I can do...."N" is not an easy letter...!
8. Boy Name: Nathan
9. Girl Name: Nora
10. Movie Title: "Now Voyager" - A wonderful Bette Davis vehicle with Paul Henrid...This is the picture where he lit two cigarettes, one for her and one for him...Very very sexy and romantic, at the time....
11. Drink: Naked Lady - What's in this lethal drink? Oh just a few things...Lemon Juice (four dashes), Apricot Brandy (four dashes), White Rum (one ounce), Grenadine, (just two dashes), Sweet Vermouth (1 oz)....mix together in a cocktail shaker half filled with ice, serve in a cocktail glass....Do Not Drive.
12. Occupation: Nurse - Underated and underpaid...the angels of our world.
13. Celebrity: Nancy Olson - For you younger folk she was in "Sunset Blvd." One of the great films of the early 50's, Directed by Billy Wilder.....Gloria Swanson, William Holden and Nacy Olson. If you've never seen it, rent it! Miss Swanson's famous line...."We had faces then..."
14. Magazine: NEWSWEEK - When I was a child my parents got Time Magazine and Newsweek. I used to read this magazine all the time...but not foor many years now....
15. U.S. City: New Orleans - We must bring this city back to it's former glory...!
16. Pro Sports Teams: New York Jets - Joe Namath? Remember him? Gee, where is he now? Anyone know?
17. Fruit: Necterine - Yummmy....if they are good and ripe!
18. Reason for Being Late To Work: Napping - Well, it could happen...!
19. Something You Throw Away: Nut Shells - Good one, huh?
20. Things You Shout: Noooooooo!
21. Cartoon Character: Nancy - One of my favorites..It was so cleanly drawn.



And that's it! Not as easy as you might think, depending on the first letter of your first name....But it was fun to do....And do let me know if you do it, too....!





More To Come.....

I saw this over at Mar's too. It looks fun so I might try it too!

The 'nutshells' is a great answer. Your answers show a great deal of general knowledge, or at least a great skill with 'Google' LOL! Well done! :)

I did this a few posts back. Did you see it? Mine was a little shorter, I think. K is hard, too.
I have a gorgeous navy summer dress that I haven't worn yet. I love Bette Davis, but I've never seen "Now Voyager". I loved "All About Eve" but, "Jezebel" I thought the script was lacking. LOVED Sunset Blvd. LOVED!!!
I live right here near New Orleans and it's just GROSS! Murder and crime.

Fun game!!
Your answer, New Orleans, made me sad that I never took a trip there. I sure do hope it is restored to its former greatness, but I fear it can never be the same again. I truly missed out!! I hope to visit some day.

This looks like fun and I will try it soon. I'll have to create a kid version for my little ones. I'm sure they'd enjoy it, too, and it'll bring out their creativity after a long summer of hazy, lazy days. Thanks for sharing, Naomi. I loved your answers! I'm craving a Nectarine (I haven't had one in ages!) and I wouldn't mind a new necklace...but I'll pass on the Naked Lady! LOL

I did it in my head as I was reading it- P is quite easy - but perhaps I skipped over the difficult ones. I also am a big fan of 'Now Voyager'
'Don't let's ask for the moon Jerry - we have the stars!'
I'd like to try a Naked Lady but think I'd better not and as an ex nurse thank you for your kind words.

The name I am known by begins with the letter L already posted by Lucy so I decided to try Scattergories using my given name ...Marilyn.
Famous Singer...Margaret Whiting...from the days when I was singing
Movie...Mr. Skeffington...a wonderful Bette Davis film from the same era-although my favorite is also Now Voyager.
This post was fun and a relaxing
challenge while letting the rest of the world goo by.
