You Tell Me Yours, I’ll Tell You Mine

This is a crazy, spur-of-the-moment list, just for fun. Tell me your picks — as many as you like, and I’ll post all mine … some time … somewhere. ๐Ÿ˜€ How’s that for specific?

Ready? Which is your preference?

    a Mac or PC

    Narnia or Lord of the Rings

    science fiction or fantasy

    classical or country

    books or ereaders

    Facebook or Twitter

    LinkedIn or Pinterest

    YA books or adult

    mystery or suspense

    Dancing with the Stars or So You Think You Can Dance

    The Voice or American Idol

    Survivor or Amazing Race

    Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum

    Old Testament or New Testament

    Apostle Paul or Apostle Peter

    Elijah or Daniel

    Tom Sawyer or Lord of the Flies

    Denver Broncos or Oakland Raiders

    Tim Tebow or Jeremy Linn

    Corrie ten Boom or Elizabeth Elliot

    iPad or Kindle Fire

    grace or mercy

    Christian fiction or general market fiction

    New York Times or Wall Street Journal

    hymns or choruses

I’ll stop at 25. Pick any you’d like to answer and if you want to elaborate and explain your pick, I’d love to hear that, too.

I might put mine in a comment or maybe I’ll answer in another post. Some of these I wish I could turn into a poll because I’d be curious to see what the consensus is. But as it stands, this is just for fun. No insidious ulterior motive on my part. Looking forward to seeing what you think.

  2. Ooo, this looks fun! And I needed a break ๐Ÿ™‚

    a Mac or PC: Definitely Mac

    Narnia or Lord of the Rings: Lord of the Rings

    science fiction or fantasy: Fantasy

    classical or country: Classic

    books or ereaders: Both

    Facebook or Twitter: Facebook

    LinkedIn or Pinterest: Neither

    YA books or adult: Prefer adult more, but do read YA

    mystery or suspense: Suspense

    Dancing with the Stars or So You Think You Can Dance: I don’t dance ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Voice or American Idol: I don’t sing either ๐Ÿ™‚

    Survivor or Amazing Race: Nope, I stay home

    Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum: I haven’t read up on them yet…

    Old Testament or New Testament: Both, but maybe the OT a little more…

    Apostle Paul or Apostle Peter: How about John?

    Elijah or Daniel: Daniel (and not because he shares the same name as my husband!)

    Tom Sawyer or Lord of the Flies: Tom Sawyer

    Denver Broncos or Oakland Raiders: Broncos

    Tim Tebow or Jeremy Linn: Tim Tebow

    Corrie ten Boom or Elizabeth Elliot: Both

    iPad or Kindle Fire: iPad

    grace or mercy: I need both!

    Christian fiction or general market fiction:I enjoy both, but I hate running into scenes that I don’t want stuck in my head (photographic memory) so I avoid books that have a lot of violence, sex, or cussing.

    New York Times or Wall Street Journal: Neither

    hymns or choruses: What about Gregorian Chants ๐Ÿ™‚

    Like

  3. a Mac or PC: PC

    Narnia or Lord of the Rings: Narnia

    science fiction or fantasy: fantasy

    classical or country: classical, but Christian Rock is my favorite

    books or ereaders: books if I’m reading at home, but e-readers are better on the go.

    Facebook or Twitter: facebook

    LinkedIn or Pinterest: Linkedin

    YA books or adult: YA

    mystery or suspense: mystery

    Dancing with the Stars or So You Think You Can Dance: Neither

    The Voice or American Idol: Neither

    Survivor or Amazing Race: Neither (I don’t watch TV)

    Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum: Ron Paul

    Old Testament or New Testament: New Testament

    Apostle Paul or Apostle Peter: Peter

    Elijah or Daniel: Elijah

    Tom Sawyer or Lord of the Flies: Tom Sawyer

    Denver Broncos or Oakland Raiders: Neither

    Tim Tebow or Jeremy Linn: Who?

    Corrie ten Boom or Elizabeth Elliot: Corrie ten Boom

    iPad or Kindle Fire: neither for reading because they are back-lit, I use a regular Kindle for e-reading. iPad is the better tablet imo, but my Galaxy is pretty nice too.

    grace or mercy: grace, but can you have one without the other?

    Christian fiction or general market fiction: general market fiction

    New York Times or Wall Street Journal: Neither

    hymns or choruses: hymns tend to be more theologically sound but I don’t like the archaic language- especially in hymns that weren’t written when that language was modern. Choruses tend to be more upbeat and worshipful, but are more likely to have goofy lyrics that I can’t sing without busting out laughing as I wonder if everyone realizes what they are saying (strings of unrelated trite Christian phrases are the worst- there has to be a coherent theme). SO, my favorites tend to be old hymns with updated language and refitted with worshipful choruses that compliment the hymn well.

  7. I’m really enjoying your answers, but you all are such rebels — neither or both. Seriously! ๐Ÿ˜† I don’t blame you on some of them. New Testament or Old, for instance, or grace versus mercy. OK, so maybe when it’s my turn I’ll be a rebel too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks to each of you for taking the time to participate.
