Scategory Categories

Tonight Jess, Alana (Jess's sister), and I planned scategories, sort of. We didn't have the actual game so we began by making up our categories. It started off tame: country, city, entity in fridge, appliance, etc.

But like all good fun, the categories quickly evolved into: two foods that don't go together, deal breakers in relationships, and exclamations.

This lead me to believe that we should have bloggers scategories, yeah? Here's the thing, I am a little embarrassed to try this in the comments because whenever I attempt anything interactive zero people read my blog that day (tres tragique!). But I am, usually, not a quitter. So, let's see if this will work.

How to play:
I'll make a list of categories the first commenter has two minutes (the honour system at work) to write down an answer, if they can think of one, to each category beginning with the letter 'A.' The second commenter has two minutes to write down an answer to each category beginning with the letter 'B.' The third commenter is 'C' and so on. Got it?


1. Capital Cities (of states or nations)
2. Authors (first or last name)
3. Things found in the junk drawer
4. Pet Peeves
5. Bad names (example, Mavis)
6. Things that should not ever be tattoos
7. TV character (please cite which show)
8. Musical group
9. Two foods (that each begin with your letter) that go WELL together (example pineapple and papaya)

    2. A.A. Milne
    3. Anderwear? Wait no, aardvarks. Wait no, an awl
