Published on Monday June 9th, 2008
Kristen’s interpretation of the game by cast on cast off inspired me to join the fun.
The rules:

Using fd’s Flickr Toys,

a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker).

The Questions:

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name.

Tag yourself if you want to play!

Is it sort of freakish that I’m seeing quilt blocks in these tiles? Yellows, greys, slate blues, spring greens, a shot of red here and there, strong circular and sinuous motifs, mirrored fabrics… Did I subconsciously choose these images because I’m drawn to these colors and forms? I certainly didn’t notice the recurring circles until afterward. Go on, find out what sort of quilt you secretly want to make! (And click the mosaic to go to Flickr and see exactly what I answered, if you can’t tell from the photo.)

    Yes! I am so fascinated by mosaics now. My family reacted not violently, but definitely aggressively to mine, hard to do with Midwestern Scandinavian Lutherans…unearthing family secrets and theologic debates. Hey guys! FYI, just a meme! Typing the same search term into Flickr moments later gives much different results (my father’s request, hating the “Mandy” image). What would your same mosaic be tomorrow?

    I’m officially tagging myself. Now if Blogger would just upload my mosaic, I’d be set! Interesting idea!

    Have I bored you with my stories of walking the Camino in 2001? Do it. As quickly as you can. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.

    Oh sheesh, another fun meme! Looks like we’re tagging me again!

    I tagged myself too. 😛 This is actually kind of fun!! I couldn’t help myself on #11, but I think it turned out pretty well. 😉 Some of those questions were hard when you can only answer one thing…
