I was inspired by a post by Sadje to answer the following questions. I found the questions and the concept interesting so I dove into it. Please pop over to her blog and show some love. It’s a great blog, you’ll like it!
7 and Three Quarters Nutty Questions
Don’t just answer these questions with quick one word answers, but give them some body! Throw yourself into it.
What will your epitaph read like?
Here lies Bill, in the hole again!
If you could explore anything Indiana Jones/Lara Croft style, where would you go first?
I’d like to journey into my ex wife’s psyche and find something that makes her happy. All conventional methods have failed to this point
What has been your biggest mistake in the kitchen?
I am an experienced cook. I was also, for a very long time a experienced drunk. One night I came home from work 3 sheets to the wind and I started a pot of rice. I fell asleep with the burner on and set the smoke alarm off. I woke my family and my wife tore me a new one about ruining a pan that was a wedding gift (and for being a stupid drunk).
What was the craziest thing you did at school?
We were on an exchange trip to Ajax, Ontario and my friends and I wanted to drink. We stole a case of beer from one of our hosts and filled 2 suitcases with beer and ice. We planned on walking to a local school and drink there. We were walking down the street and the suitcases were leaking water from the melting ice. We were stopped by police, asked why we were carrying dripping suitcases and promptly arrested. THAT was a fun phone call home. oy.
When you dream do you dream in colour, black and white or technicolour?
Vivid technicolour. As are the memories of them
What quote or saying do people spout but is complete and utter rubbish?
“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.” I agree to a point. But an opinion needs to be an informed one, based upon due research and a genuine understanding of the subject matter. A tomato may be technically a fruit, but it is my opinion that it would taste like shit in a fruit salad.
What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week?
I don’t want to open a can of worms here, but the most interesting, in a disgusting way of being interesting, was New York City lighting the top of a building in celebration of a barbaric new Abortion law. I’ve never taken a political or religious stance on this issue, and I respect a woman’s right to choose, it’s interesting that people who cry about children being separated at our border are celebrating the ability to slaughter a baby up until the day before it is born. Sorry, it’s disgusting. And interesting…how much more barbaric are we able to be?
What’s the most useless talent you have?
I’m not blessed with many talents and I have none to spare, but I am very talented at trivia. I am a wealth of useless knowledge. It does come handy in bars, however.
Would you rather be alone for the rest of your life or always be surrounded by annoying people?
I used to love to be around a lot of people. Then I lost my ability to tolerate annoying people. My definition of annoying for the sake of this conversation is people who are fake, loud, backstabbing or untrustworthy. My life for the last 2 years has been fairly solitary and I found that I am ok with being alone because I finally like me.
Would you rather be locked in a room that is constantly dark for a week or a room that is constantly bright for a week?
I would prefer to be in a dark room for a week. Because I would be so happy when I was reintroduced to glorious sunlight, which I will never underestimate as one of the greatest joys of life.
Would you rather relive the same day for 365 days or lose a year of your life?
Groundhog Day! Great movie. We all have a moment, or era that we wish we could do over. Imagine having one year to completely change, by learning and practice, to do it over like a boss. Especially if it leads to a better outcome.
Would you rather find your true love or a suitcase with five million dollars inside?
5 Million dollars. I am no longer capable of romantic love, I’m damaged goods. Now I’m into charity. The good deeds that I could do with the 5 million would make me a happy man.
Answers please on the underside of the topside of the backside, that’s just plain square!
I don’t understand the question.
