8. If you could have one super power what would it be? – Telekenisis, baby.

8. Your favorite cartoon character? – Cosmo from Fairly Odd Parents.

9. Do you think marriage is an outdated ritual? – Nope, I like it. It tests one's limits.

11. What is your best childhood memory? – Learning how to ride a bike.

12. Do you own a gun? – yes, a Walther PPK


13. Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex?-- Yes. In the seventh grade. My bus was overcrowed and, on the way home one day, I had to stand, since there were no seats left by the time I boarded. My arms were full of stuff and things kept falling to the floor as I was tossed around on the ride. Each time I went to pick up a straying item, Brad, an 8th grade burn-out, pinched my butt. After each incident, I told him to stop it. He laughed. On the third pinch, I turned to him and said, "I said stop it!" and I slapped him right across the face. He punched me in the back. Then someone got off the bus and I sat down. He later brandished a knife in my face. Obviously, things didn't work out between us.

14. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people?-- Yes, but not solo. Oh, wait, I've sung karaoke. One beer is all it takes, my friends.

15. What's the first thing you notice about the preferred sex?-- Posture.

16. What is your biggest mistake?-- I haven't made it yet.

17. Say something totally random about yourself.-- My favorite salad dressing is red wine vinagrette.

18. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity? No, but they tell me I look French.

19. What is the most romantic thing someone of the opposite sex has done for you. Washed my hair.

20. Do you actually read these when other people fill them out?-- yes, mostly.

I HEREBY TAG: Frank Sirmarco and Phil.


  1. I am totally with you about the salad dressing...yum.

  2. It is yummy, but rare. No one seems to have it anywhere.

  3. isn't it interesting that knife-in-face-brandishing is somewhat common from the childhood of the 70's and if it happened NOW...

    hmmm... Wonder what that says?

    Also, "Secretary of Education". Ooooh, I'd not thunk of that one.

  4. Big Orange, you could be my deputy sec of ed...We'd have a blast deconstructing that nightmare!

  5. My Granpa took that gun off a German deserter at the end of World War II. It's got a tiny nazi insigna etched on one side. It's the only thing of his that I got after he passed away.

  6. You never told me about the knife wielding butt pincher. If we'd have been in school together back then, that asshole would been in trouble!

    Yeah for Granpa!

  7. That's a much more interesting reason. Not at all like the reason I thought.

  8. I thought you were a James Bond fan as well as Star Trek.

    I knew I shoulda said Telekenisis.

  9. Oh, I am a James Bond fan, to be sure. I can't wait for the new one to come out. We've got most of the films on DVD.
