1. First Name: Elizabeth. Searching this gets a lot of totally incomprehensible pictures. Eventually I went with one that at least actually had "Elizabeth" in the description.

2. Favorite Food: Chicken and dumplings. This got me A LOT of pictures of people's bento lunches at first, with dumplings with chicken in them, but eventually I figured out to search for it in quotes. This is a Cracker Barrel plate. Looks good, doesn't it?

3. Hometown: Houston, TX. I had a nice picture of the arcades at Rice, but apparently that person doesn't allow their photos to be linked on these mosaics. So here are some turtles at Memorial Park instead.

4. Favorite Color: Anything bright. I searched "bright colors" and it came down to a choice between this and a frog.

5. Celebrity Crush: Jackie Chan. Not a lot of good results for this one.

6. Favorite Drink: Iced tea, unsweetened.

7. Dream Holiday: Alexandria, MN. This is Big Ole, who stands at one end of the main street in Alex. If you can't read it, his shield there says "Alexandria -- Birthplace of America". Alexandria likes to think this, because some farmer found The Runestone -- a piece of rock with, allegedly, 500-year-old Viking runes on it -- near there. The Runestone Museum is a real delight, and a perennial source of amusement to my dad. He especially enjoys the educational Runestone video, which ends with the farmer's now-elderly son saying of the Vikings, "Yep, them boys was here all right."

8. Favorite Dessert: Red velvet cake.

9. What I Want To Be When I Grow Up: A math teacher.

10. What I Love Most In The World: Books. I ended up searching "library" to get this, and it's actually a bookstore that used to be a theater. (When I saw that, I tried searching for photos of the Alabama Bookstop, but there weren't any good ones.)

11. One Word That Describes Me: Dorky. Much like this carrot.

12. My LiveJournal Name: [livejournal.com profile] elsajeni? You don't find anything by searching that on Flickr, of course, but it suggests "Did you mean 'Alaskan'?", so... why not? Have a musk ox!
