Mystery Photo Quiz #3

“Since when did your blog become a photoblog? Who do you think you are? Annie Liebowitz?”
“Does she have a blog?”
“I don’t know, but she’s the only photographer I could think of on the fly. Okay, how about this – who do you think you are, Ansel Adams?”
“I don’t think he has a blog either, because I’m pretty sure he’s dead. But since I paid half my rent for a new camera, I need to at least convince myself that this money was better spent on a digital camera than on my 401k. Plus, I guess I’m just feeling more visual than textual lately. You know? Sometimes it’s easier to express yourself in images than in words.”
“I totally know what you mean.”
”You do?”
“No. I just want you to stop talking.”
Okay, so with that, I give you Mystery Photo Quiz #3! Anyone who can guess all of these correctly will win something very, very special: two gently used Siamese cats, litter box trained, and fixed. They both have working claws and teeth, as evidenced by the enormous hole in the back of the shirt I was planning on ironing for work tomorrow, and the half-eaten shoelaces in my new running shoes. Actually, if you even get one answer right, your name will be entered into a sweepstakes to win these two delightful cats (not valid in Maine and Rhode Island, or wherever prohibited). Good luck!

    Dear Jenny,
    Ha Ha Kris is scared of a duck!!!

  7. eclectic Says:

    #6 – maglight;
    #5 – a rubber chair mat, to protect your carpet which is also pictured;
    #4 – Typewriter hammers, showing the colon and the parenthesis;
    #3 – part of a Halloween skeleton display

    I haven’t looked at the other guesses yet, but I gotta tell you… I must really want those cats ’cause I tried really hard here. That’s disconcerting somehow…

    Vivian –
    Think back to when we were teenagers. Remember what was running around my parents’ house?
    Is my fear so funny now?

  9. StationeryQueen Says:

    I have no clue. I’m horrible at this.
    BTW, I’m leaving my job without another official one lined up (I’m a writer leaving to focus on my own writing). I think I’ll tell my mother I’m going to be a tap dancer, though. The look on her face will be priceless. :-)
    You go, girl. Rock on with your tappin’ shoes!
    Thanks for linking me. I’ll repay the favor, gladly.

  10. Jenny Says:

    You’re getting warmer, warmer, wait – colder, ice cold, okay warmer again… some of you are so close, and some are so, so far.
    I don’t know why Kris is so afraid of a sex toy/leg warmer/cat toy/peacock feather/duck? It’s almost like there’s a theme to those guesses: Okay, Alex, I’ll take “Things That Can Be Found In Jenny’s Dresser Drawer” for $500.
    SQ: Way to go on deserting the job! I’m all for it, and there’s no higher calling than tap dance. Hold your head high, sister!

  11. Roxie Says:

    1.) Pumpkin sugar cookie
    2.) One of those featherball decorations
    3.) bone
    4.) Typewriter wappers (the bars that hit the paper)
    5.) It looks old, like from the 70’s. It looks like where my kitchen floor met the shag carpet in my childhood home.
    6.) a light of some sort (booklight?)

  12. HumanityCritic Says:

    Great post.

  13. Anonymous Says:

    Dear Kris,
    I had blocked them out. Now I’m running and screaming, too.

  14. Robert Says:

    I’m choosing not to participate in this round of Torture the Cats because my microwave is already full with my own two furballs.

  15. Randa Says:

    1. Papaya with chunk of semi-melted chocolate
    2. A baby falcon on your bedspread (My husband thinks it’s your bum in a leopard-print skirt)
    3. Foamy shin pads (for those violent jug band nights)
    4. Funky earrings
    5. Wicker chair, or the sole of your new running shoes
    6. Camera lens, with reflection of helmeted racecar driver and bare-shouldered woman

  16. teahouseblossom Says:

    You really have a talent for this. I’m in awe of you.

  17. asia Says:

    1. a tick running around on that foam stuff they use for flower arrangements
    2. something that went out of style in the 70’s
    3. a whale bone freud-era corset that your cats chewed, and are thus, being given away for
    4. ancient runes for divining fortunes and futures
    5. a seam? in a cloth thing? with some other cloth thing? like, sewed into it? um…
    6. that, I can say with absolute certainty is a safe crackers tool… or, is it a pacemaker. shit.

  18. Jenny Says:

    R1: Ha, yeah. Old like from the 70’s. Wait a minute! I’m from the 70’s!!!
    HC: Thanks for stopping by!
    V and K: We’re all disturbed by your Flowers in the Attic conversation. Please take it offline.
    R2: It’s probably for the best – my cats don’t play well with others.
    R3: Ohmigod! Can you totally see me making out with Jeff Gordon in the reflection? I’m so embarrassed!
    THB: You got them all right! You win the cats! Really, though, you’re sweet – thanks! And now that you have that mansion in the Hamptons, my cats are looking forward to having a room of their own.
    A: No! Do mine eyes deceive me? Hath these once gentle beasts destroyed mine whale bone corset? Once Victor spies my thick waist and minimal bosom, ’tis certain he shall spurn my affections. Oh, a pox on thee, wicked felines. A pox on thee!

  21. The Other Vivian Says:

    Dude, some of these pics give me the creeps.

  22. Nina Says:

    They’re all sex toys obviously.
    In the alternative, one of them is a type-writer thingie-whatsie.
