Crusdaer Challenge #1

Imagine my excitement when Rachael posted our first Crusader Challenge this past Friday. Now, imagine my disappointment when we don't even get to sack Jerusalem. Oh well, perhaps next week. Here's the rules:

In 300 words or less, using the words "bloviate,” “fuliguline,” “rabbit,” and “blade” tell us:

· one secret

· one lie

· one interesting quirk

· one annoying habit

· one of your best character traits, and

· one of your favorite things in the whole world.

Here we go(I will use a list in order not to bloviate):

-I love Duk Bok Gee (despite having the word duck in it there are no fuliguline type meats in the dish.) (thing I love)

-I bite my nails when I'm bored. (habit)

-My sister has a psycho pet rabbit named Terrence. (lie.  I don't even have a sister.)

-I have to sleep with a fan. The sound of the fan blade puts me to sleep/helps me focus.

-I always root for the underdog teams.
(+ character trait)

 -I have eaten a dog's heart
(secret.  shh! I was in Korea.)



  1. Love the use of illos in your challenge :) I am guessing you haven't eaten a dog's heart, I hope not anyway :)

  2. I'll guess you haven't eaten a dog's heart.

    I have an award for you at my blog.

  3. Wow. I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out how only one of these is a lie.

  4. I'm guessingt the lie is the dog heart.

  5. I am with the everyone else....I don't believe you have eaten a dogs heart. Unless of course that is a pseudo name for something totally unrelated to dogs.

  6. Hi Chris,
    I'm in your crusader group (#2) so I'm paying special attention here. My guess is that you bit your nails. Don't know why. The dog heart is just too cool.

  7. I'll guess your sister's pet rabbit isn't as psycho as the one from Holy Grail.

  8. Er... dog's heart? I'll go with that because it's kinda gross otherwise.

    I keep wondering when we'll get to sack major Near Eastern cities as well. I even shined my helmet and everything.

  9. Hey fellow Crusader!

    Psycho rabbit sounds awesome! I'm going for the dog's heart too :)

  10. I pray to God the last one is your lie, because if not, I feel for both you and the dog.

    Did you really get around to following all 216 people already? Guess why this one here isn't participating in the first challenge. (I've got some catching up to do!)

  11. Er... The lie is that Terrence is actually a total sweetie!!! Take care

  12. Holy cow, I need a dictionary for this blog post. But I do sleep with a fan. Does that count at all? Le sigh. Probably not.

  13. I will guess that your sister doesn't, in fact, have a rabbit. Or if she does, it isn't named Terrence. Or it isn't psycho.

  14. My guess is that a Dyson Airblade would do nothing for you because it is soundless. So much for technology.

  15. I figured Terrance the rabbit was a lie to fit into the post, but eating a dog's heart! Sweet Holy Moses!

  16. I like your pictures. My guess is....the crazy rabbit. Although I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen the Monty Python movie, so the reference is lost on me.

    Of course guessing the rabbit is the like makes the dog heart thing true in my mind.

  17. Hee hee... I lol'd at not sacking Jerusalem, I'm delighted that you included a Monty Python pic, and I really really hope that eating a dog's heart is your lie.

  18. Hello fellow crusader! I am a tad bit late, the whole house has been sick all week. So, I just thought I would pop in and just say Hi! :D

    fib=rooting for the underdog! :D

  19. Hello crusader! Love the illustrations with your challenge. How did you get the monkey to pose for you that way. :)

    I hope that your lie is the dog's heart... I know that in certain culture's they eat dog, but I've just never reconciled myself to it. Horse either...

  20. I'd guess (and HOPE) it's the dog's heart :P

    I love that pic of the primate. so cute!

  21. The illustrations are a great touch. I'm going out on a limb and guessing that your sister doesn't have a rabbit, and that you have indeed eaten a dog's heart as part of some Thai specialty.

  22. The lie is the lie? You do have a sister but she doesn't have a rabbit. ;)

  23. This is what happens when I come late to the party. I thought you were trying to mix us all up by "giving us the answers" but I actually commented on your updated post! Lol! Oops!
