|WHAT does she want to know TODAY???|
Who is your celebrity crush?
Me: Man I have had so many through the years! I don't have a current one, but my first was prolly Ginger on Gilligan's Island (I remember having a really weird dream about her back in the day) or, amazingly, Diana Ross (for whom I had an even weirder dream), and the latest was Martha Jones on Doctor Who.
Scrappy: Hard to have a crush on someone when you haven't sniffed their... well, you know.
Do you read a lot? Whats your favorite book?
Me: I am somewhere between constant and voracious in reading! Although of late my genre choices have mainly dwindled to histories, of which Susan Wise Bauer does the best. If you have a young teen interested in getting more detail on the subject, her "History Of" series is absolutely unbeatable. Novel wise, I think I have gotten as much enjoyment from Leon Uris- particularly Trinity- as anyone.
Scrappy: I like to lay in the middle of what Daddy's reading. Because I'm more important.
Money or brains?
Me: What, do I have or do I want? Assuming the want side, money can make stupidity affordable, but it won't keep you from playing with your toes as an old man. Since I play with my toes anyway, I'm a bit torn these days.
Scrappy: Brains can be fried or stewed. Money is like a really nasty arugula salad. I'll go brains.
Do you have a nickname? If so what is it?
Me: My niece used to call me Popper. I always liked that, but no one ever uses it.
Scrappy: Do you have an hour? Boofus, Poofus, Moofus, Doofus, Booogle, Beadle (KC used to call me that), "old bumpy guy"...
How many times have you been to the hospital?
Me: Birth, appendix, all four wisdom teeth at once, I think pneumonia, the first kidney stone, and most recently when my right calf decided it wanted to become a big blood filled balloon.
Scrappy: Well, I had my "berries picked"...
Top 10 favorite songs:
Me: Just ten? A top three of ELO's Strange Magic, the Four Seasons' Sherry, and the Guess Who with No Time; followed loosely by Manilow's Mandy, England Dan and JF Coley's Nights Are Forever, Percy Faith's A Summer Place Theme; then a grab bag of things like Muriat's Love Is Blue, Vinton's Blue Velvet and Blue On Blue, and America's Sister Golden Hair.
Scrappy: I like soft songs daddy sings in my ear.
Do you take medications daily?
Me: Yes. Enough that I use a two-week day planner.
Scrappy: I get a "Boofus pill" (Cosequin) with dinner.
What is your biggest fear?
Me: Being alone. And, ironically, crowds.
Scrappy: When the TV screen does that "pop" thing. I run upstairs.
what is your skin type ( oily, dry, combo, etc)
Me: I think the natural state is oily...
whats your go to hair style?
Me: Comb-over. It's either that or a tonsure.
What type of house do you live in (big , small, condo,etc)?
Both: They call it a Townhouse, which is a fancy way of saying, "a two-floor, two bedroom, 1 1/2 bath apartment."
Who is your role model?
Me: A man who went to join his wife with the Lord several years ago. His name was Frank, and it's in his honor I wear the Hawaiian shirts. He taught me more in a shorter time than anyone.
Scrappy: Daddy, of course.
Holli ended her post by announcing she got a speeding ticket today. I'll end mine by announcing that won't happen if you keep up with the guy speeding in front of you.
