We Interrupt This Program...
It has come to my attention that I am...it.
It, like the game of tag, get it? I got it, and now I want to get rid of it.
If memory serves, I was pretty good at tag when I was a kid.
It didn't involve catching or hitting a baseball so I didn't have to worry about blowing the double play or striking out in the bottom of the ninth with a tie score and the winning run on third.
No, with tag, all I had to do was run and dodge, which are about the two things I do best in life.
I recently learned that in the blogosphere people tag each other's blogs and, like a chain letter--or a disease--you have to spread it around answering a series of questions and passing them on to other bloggers.
I got tagged by my Israeli homeboy, DesertPeace. I confess I wasn't too thrilled at first, since I had other posts in mind and I don't know too many other bloggers, and the few I do know I'd rather not piss off by dragging them into these kinds of games.
But upon reflection, I decided I would tag along. The questions are intriguing; it will be fun to pass them around and see the variety of answers, and, most of all, I can't let down my boy Peace, as he is always in my corner, all the way from Jerusalem.
So, for what it's worth, here are my answers.
1.Black and White or Color; how do you prefer your movies?
B&W--love those old movies.
2.What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death?
Golf, watching, playing or discussing. It's murder.
3.MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: what is your favorite medium
for prerecorded music?
CD's. Way behind on the whole MP3 business
4.You are handed one first class trip plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going: Ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run?
God, this is the choice of love or money. I want that 10 mil so bad I can taste it, but I'd miss my family so much I think I'd die. I'm going to say no and then hope to God this never really happens.
5.Seriously, what do you consider the world's most pressing issue now?
Seriously, George Bush
6.How would you rectify the world's most pressing issue?
Make him go hunting with Dick Cheney. Seriously.
7.You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be?
Prevent my parents from sending me to Catholic school. (No joke.)
8.You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be?
9.A night at the opera, or a night at the Grand Ole Opry. Which do you choose?
Opera. I love the Marx Brothers.
10.What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you'd like to solve?
How did Bush get elected? (AKA "Who hijacked my country?")
11.One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal?
Charles Dickens and we'd have pizza from Goodfellas in Brooklyn. Please, sir, could I have some more? Hell, yes, Charlie, and grab a few buffalo wings while you're at it!
12. You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky. What's the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact?
I'd do the same immoral stuff I've always been doing, only now I would drop all that Catholic guilt and finally enjoy myself.
So there you have it, sports fans. I'm supposed to tag four other bloggers, but I'm only friends with two, so here goes. I now tag my two dear blogging buds:
Desert Wench and Barbara of Bitchin' & Stuff.
I think Barbara is an especially good choice since she maintains four blogs and thus gets me off the hook on the four bloggers requirement. (Yeah, I know, I should have been a lawyer.)
Okay, so you asked, I answered and I spread the word. We will now return you to our regularly scheduled blog.
