Apparently, there was some really stupid enticing to people other than me because who cares Facebook friend factoid exchange going around five years ago. Friends answered 20 questions, passed it on, and everybody got to know all of this useless, boring really fun stuff about one another.
Guess what? It’s baaaaack! And with 50 (or 49 – see below) questions now!
Awesome, witty and just plain cool Josie at Go Mamma tagged me to play the new bloggie version.
She took this super-cool take on the whole thing and interviewed her kid(s). Which I love. However, because our little sweet Tucker is on the autism spectrum and (most significantly) has a pretty severe speech and language delay, having him answer the questions isn’t much of an option.
Anyway, I’m going to play this game! Errr…but, there are like 50 questions. One of them asks where I was born. So, although I promise to answer mostly all of the questions, the answers may come in spurts. Like this one.
Question 48.* Because I like it.
48. DO YOU LIKE SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY MOVIES?
Happy! Happy, happy, happy.
I really should like scary movies more though because I am wicked-smart as a viewer. I’m never dumb enough to go camping by a deserted lake with my friends, walk into an ominous-looking alleyway, or turn on a light in the dark because somebody’s going to grab my hand. Not to brag or anything, but I’m pretty much always one-step-ahead enough to yell “Don’t go in there, dipshit!” or “You’re going to die!” or “Run, Stupid!”
In real life? Risking sounding like an old, unadventurous tsk-tsking asshole, I’ll just say that I haven’t always made the smartest decisions regarding personal safety. Here, look.
This is my friend Julie and me in New Orleans at a graveyard. We’d recently read Interview with a Vampire and were enthralled. We were also drunk. Drunk enough that it seemed like a good idea to hang out in a graveyard at 2am and wait for Louis de Pointe du Lac (or one of his friends because this was before Lestat got cool) to grant us eternal life.
We drank, and waited for them to come.
Eventually, we had to pee.
We had a pretty intense debate on how to go about peeing respectfully in a cemetery. We wanted to invite the un-dead, not disturb or disrespect the resting-dead. Luckily, Julie came up with a brilliant solution.
Peeing in the street and not near any graves was brilliant. Feel free to file that nugget away for when you need it. You can thank me later.
Some might say that peeing in the street actually saved our young lives.
Luckily, the vampires knew that we’d have amazing children one day, spared us and instead struck out to fulfill their hunger with criminals and rodents. As it should be, really.
*Note: It may be question 47 because I noticed earlier that Josie completely skipped question seven which means there are a total of 49. Whatever, it’s labeled as 48.
