FunkQuest – Season 2 – Round 2 – Episode 19 – Alison Donaghey v Lisa Marie Platske

​Both and Lisa Marie Platske are old pioneers of ​ game, as such, episode 19, ​in season 2 of , should be a good one.

Alison began this game choosing the 'Box House' icon and answering the question - "Which is the most underused room in your house?"                           Filled with innuendo, as well as finding out she has trouble sleeping Alison's ​bedroom was the answer.

In her first question we found that; unlike most people, ​Lisa Marie has no interest in going shopp​ing she finds it painful and unlike Alison, 'hanging out' in a mall or shopping centre is something she can't stand.

The second question for Lisa Marie was about the picture on ​her desktop - everyone has something - and for Lisa Marie; a picture of a girl running along the beach inspires peace and tranquility. Alison interrupted Lisa question knowing her desktop thing was a little less tranquil. (See below)

​Question 2 for Alison was about eating dropped food. She has dogs in her house ​so any dropped food would be snatched up​. ​On the subject in general she felt it was ok to pick up if it wasn't sticky. As a child she had eaten lots of unsavoury things and not been hurt - while an immunity to germs had boosted her health.

Next Alison revealed that any time of day was good for her,​ athough it depended on the day

Lisa Marie picked the 'board game' next with the question about what was uniquely hers. Her reply was ​a great answer about her life and experiences.

Question 4 also saw a good answer from Lisa Marie; Investing in yourself - doing whatever you have to do, depends on preparation​, not LUCK

After a brief discussion on the psychology of the picture ​icons picked by people, Alison ​then ​said she would not have a picture on her wall, but revealed that ​she had put a piece of junk on it which she liked. (see below)

​Alison chose the 'pig' icon for question 5 and answered that her first real journey into alcoholic drinks did not go well. ​Tequila however is her favourite. ​ 

Lisa Marie's final question became a different answer than expected.

​Alison - Wall art.

    • Jonathan says:

      Funnily enough – very few people actually do. I wonder if it is a case of not seeing the wood for the trees. They just head off to “social meeja” to tell people and miss the lowest hanging fruit of all….

    I’m voting for Alison because she told me to.
