Scattergories

My oldest friend (in the sense that we met when we were 2 years old, not in the other sense) posted this in her blog, The Upper Storey.

Use the first letter of your name to come up with an item in each of the following categories. They have to be real places, names, and things. You can't make anything up. Try to use different answers is the person ahead of you has the same first initial. You can't use your own name for the boy/girl name question. Lois/Maggie (my friend) suggested everyone add one category.

Here goes:

What is your name?...............Nina
Four letter word.....................note
Vehicle.....................................Nissan
City..........................................New York
Boy name................................Neal
Girl name................................Natalie
Drink.......................................Nescafe
Occupation.............................novelist
Something to wear................necklace
Celebrity.................................Nick Nolte
Food........................................noodles
Something found in a bathroom........Nivea lotion
Reason for being late............no watch
Cartoon character.................Nancy
Something you shout...........No way!
Animal...................................nutria
Word to describe you..........nice
Disease..................................nephritis
Herb or spice........................nutmeg

I could suggest neuropathy as a disease, although it's more the definition of a disease than an actual disease.... and for a drink how about "nog" -- it's generic but but still a drink. I think there's a cartoon called Jimmy Neutron.

Wow! Thanks for the great suggestions! Actually over lunch I had come up with cartoon character Nancy (which necessitated changing girl name to Natalie), disease nephritis and drink nescafe... or Nehi (Remember Radar?).

Dear Color Twin,
Since your mail message said "A brand new way to waste your time" and I had no time to waste this week (I was at a Conference to the West of the country, the Andean region), I waited till today to look at your game.
I didn´t know if you wanted us to play it or not, but I did to see if it was too difficult for my students. I guess the cartoon character, the disease, what to shout and the herb were a bit tough, but my first-letter is quite easy.

Here are my answers anyway:
What is your name?......Berta
Four letter wor.........busy
Vehicle.................BMW
City........ ...........Boston
Boy name...........Bill
Girl name........Beatrice
Drink.............beer
Occupation....businesswoman
Something to wear.....blouse
Celebrity...........Beyonce
Food..............beef steak
Something found in a bathroom .......body lotion
Reason for being late............bus accident
Cartoon character....Beastie
Something you shout...........Boy!
Animal.....................bird
Word to describe you.....beautiful smile (I could not think of anything else to say, ha, ha)
Disease........bacterial infection
Herb or spice.....basil

Thanks for sharing.

Your "old" friend´s blog is quite nice, btw.

All the best, cariños, Berta
