Mosaic meme

Many years ago I came across a rather fun image-based meme that I thought would serve rather well as an introduction to me.

Here's how to:

1. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Creative Commons Search.
2. Using only the first page of results, pick one image.
3. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into Big Huge Lab’s Mosaic Maker to create a mosaic of the picture answers.

The questions:

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. What is your favourite drink?
7. What is your dream vacation?
8. What is your favourite dessert?
9. What do you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. What is one word that describes you?
12. What is your favourite word?

Here’s my mosaic:

 I've shown you mine. Now show me yours!

  1. My favorite word would be rapscallion. Always thought it was electric. There is a site called where you can add your favorite words and find people sharing the same words with you.
