Your Questions Answered — Round 3

Monday, September 19, 2005

Since it's Monday, we'll keep it light and fun. Abby: If your house was burning down, and your kids and pets were safely outside, what would you grab on your way out? Hmm. Kids and pets are already safe? Something that I would grab on my way out...well, besides my bathrobe? That would have to be the knick-knacks in my china cabinet. Most of them have sentimental value, and are the some of the only things I have from my great-grandmother. Abby: You're on death row. What's your last meal? I'm thinking a big, juicy rib-eye, cooked medium rare, with horseradish sauce, spinach with lots and lots of garlic, and mashed potatoes. Oh, and of course as many martinis as I can down. And then the chocolatiest chocolate cake. Followed by a latte. Brittany: If you could write a novel about anything what would it be? Additional directions were not to think, but I did. Just my nature. Breaking the rules and all. If I could write a novel, it would be one that contained lots of adventure of course! It would involve travel around the world, to mysterious and dark places with a little danger, a little romance, a lot of action! And of course the heroine would be a super smart, super sexy, capapble and strong woman. I see Angelina Jolie playing me...oh, sorry. (HA HA HA!) Steph: If you won the lottery (mega jackpot) what would you do with the money? Of course I would make a large donation to a charity first. Then, I would buy houses for my family. I'd put my kids in private school, hire a maid and a pool boy, oh, and I guess I'd have to get a house with a pool for the pool boy. And then I'd take off on a round-the-world adventure. Researching my novel, you know. Places on the list? Europe of course, Northern Africa, Turkey, India, Nepal, Australia, South America. Barry: Do you enjoy going to plays or movies more? What's your favorite of each? I like both. That's cheating, I know. But I think that they offer completely different experiences. I love going to the movies. I don't go that often though. I'm selective now about what I spend my $8 on. I also love going to the theater for a play. I've seen some very witty, very well done plays. I assume this means musicals too, because I've seen some great ones of those too. Barry: Can you sing? Do you like to sing? Well, I think everyone can sing, it's just a measure of how well they do it. I don't do it very well at all. But I love to sing. I will sing very loud and slightly off-key to music blaring on the radio while I'm driving in my car. I think I my true calling was to be a rock-star. Someone just forgot to give me the talent. My friends won't take me anywhere there is the danger of having karaoke. Even then, sometimes I seranade them to a song playing in the background. I don't know why they roll their eyes...I'm so unappreciated.

  • Yum, I love your last meal request. That's sounds good. I want that for lunch today, but probably not going to happen.

  • Hey, when you win the lottery, can I come too?! Or can I at least housesit? With the pool boy?

  • I love your choice in food!! My husband keeps me away from karaoke too. What's up with all of these eye-rollers?? They just don't know how good we are! ;-)

  • Heck with the ribeye. Give me prime rib, rare. Lots of horseradish. Garlic mashed potatoes are good, but that fully loaded pound and a half baked potato at Red, Hot & Blue is hard to beat. Since it would be my final meal, I want all of the fired okra I can eat -- and not that wimpy stuff mist restaurants serve. The real thing, rolled in cornmeal. And hot, fresh ciabatta bread from Macaroni grill.

    Then again, a big, heaping plate of cheese and onion enchiladas smothered in chili, cheese, and jalapenos would be hard to beat.

  • Ooooh, can I come swimming in your pool?

  • I am another unskilled but impassioned singer. Our culture says we should only enjoy those things we are good at- even recreation is supposed to be about accomplishment. I feel I am doing my part to stick it to The Man when I throw my whole self into a song just to feel my voice fill up my throat, and let myself be blissfully oblivious to what I might be doing to anyone else's ears.

  • Nice post lass. For my last meal I would go with a Pepperoni with olives and onions pizza from Papa Johns and a few ice cold Killian's Irish Red lager.
