F.R.I.E.N.D.S Contest -1

UPDATE : Answers Published....

Starting off with a contest on F.R.I.E.N.D.S trivia (Thanks Enigma, for the idea). Restating the obvious, I ask 10 questions and you tell the answers :O Lets see how much knowledgeable you guys are about F.R.I.E.N.D.S ;)

1. Which actress was originally approached to play the part of "Rachel Green" ?
Answer: Courteney Cox. She was the only one among the cast who was famous before F.R.I.E.N.D.S happened. At that time, she was also in the list of the "Most Beautiful Women". She chose to play Monica because she felt that she somehow related to Monica's character.

2. What is Chandler's middle name ?
Answer: Muriel.

3. Which movie does Rachel claim as her favourite ?
Answer: Dangerous Liaisons.

4. And which is her actual favourite ?
Answer: Weekend at Bernie's.

5. What is the name of Joey's bedtime penguin pal ?
Answer: Hugsy.

6. Who essayed the role of Phoebe/Ursula's stalker ?
Answer: This role was played by David Arquette, who is also Courteney's husband. That episode was telecast in Season 2 or 3.

7. "Well, I relied on a carefully regimented program of denial and wetting the bed". Who said this and when ?
Answer: This is told by Chandler to Rachel, when she asks him how he coped with his parents divorce.

8. Who breaks up with Ross because of his constant whining ?
Answer: Janice. This was in season 5, after Ross's marriage breaks up and he is also on sabattical from work.

9. What does Joey put on his head to scare Chandler during Thanksgiving ?
Answer: He sticks his head into a dead Turkey to scare Chandler, but then his head gets stuck there. Lol!

10. Who used to sing "I am Bea, I drink Tea, Wont you dance around with me ?" ?
Answer: Ross. They actually show Ross and Monica as kids with Ross wearing his mom's hat, playing with Monica's Tea set and singing this song.

Looks like I am suffering for a case of "Bloggers Block". I am at a total loss of words to blog about and neither is something interesting happening in my life. :( Maybe someone can tag me. Enigma suggested that I have F.R.I.E.N.D.S contest on my blog. Now, that is an awesome idea!!! I happen to know lots and lots of trivia about it. Infact, couple of my friends refer to me as "F.R.I.E.N.D.S Dictionary". :D So, in my upcoming posts you will definitely have some F.R.I.E.N.D.S related contests.

I recently purchased a copy of "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand. Its quite a famous book and many of you may have already read it. I had previously read this book about 6 years ago. I did not like it all at that time. Felt it was too philosophical. Although I got the main flow of the story, I was not able to understand many of the deeper and subtle meanings. Maybe this time I will be able to appreciate and understand what Ayn Rand is conveying. She calls it as "Objectivism".

A long holiday is coming up on account of Diwali. Am going to Hubli-Dharwad along with another friend for a couple of days to meet up with some friends. Hoping to have a great time and ofcourse eat some authentic Dharwad pedha. More on the trip in the upcoming posts.

Wish you all a Happy and Safe Diwali!!
