Donuts for Dogs? Say it ain't so....

Today we ripped off a blogger named Paul Burgin from the blog Mars Hill. It is 20 questions,  He says he got it from Paul Linford.  But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Take the time to comment on other player's posts. It's a great way to make new friends! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing! 

First Job:  Dietary Aide at So Shore Hospital. 

First Real Job:  What, dietary aide wasn't a real job?  That's BS.  Who are you to judge?  Then I worked at my uncle's fish/ice cream place.  Do you have any idea what it's like smelling like fried fish?  It gets into your clothes, your hair, your nose - everywhere.  And try going out after work?  Impossible.  I remember a few times getting into Debbie Henry's fun bus and stinking up the joint. 

First Volunteer Job:  Hahahahahahaa - that's unpaid job, right?  Just clarifying..  My mother used to say "I didn't have you kids because you were cute" or something like that.  And God forbid should the boys do any girls work.  You know, now that I think of it?  They didn't even have to put their own damn dishes in the sink.   That's OK.  I learned how to fight back.  When told to trim the hedges?  I did such a butcher job on them that I was told that I'd never be allowed to do that again.  Awwwwwww bummer...  LOL

First Car:  OMG it was a 76 Plymouth Volare.  That thing would do anything.  Donuts, fishtails - best car in the snow.  I remember plowing it through a snowbank once, too.  It would still be running today if it hadn't been totaled in an accident (and no, it wasn't my fault).  Great car.  Only AM radio sucked, though - but I did get to listen to Ricardo Montalbon singing to me about my car a lot.  LMAO

First Record:  Monster Mash.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  Shit.  It wasn't yesterday?  What do you mean vinyl is "out"?  Damn you technology!

First Sport Played:  CYO basketball.  And the coach's sister was nothing but a big fat bully.  She used to push me around all the time - and it wasn't my fault I was short.  And really - it was JUST a game... 

First Concert:  Ahhhhhhhh, sorry Jules..... Bruce Springsteen.  12/16/80.  At the Gahden.  The River tour. 

First Country Visited:  Greece.  Summer before my senior year in high school.  Oh damn.  I never did scan that picture of Tony, did I?  Now I'm inspired. 

First Kiss:  Mike somebody.  We were playing pool in his basement the day after Christmas, I think?  And the chalk smelled like peaches.  I still hate peaches.  LOL

First Speech:  I'd like to thank the Academy...

First Girlfriend/Boyfriend:  Um.  I like boys.  Or really, men.  But aren't they always boys?  First one?  Eeesh...  Not sure.  I really don't remember.  I remember my first "real" crush was Jim Sheehan.  He turned out gay. 

First Encounter with a Famous Person:  Um.  Hellooooooooooooooo?  You  mean other than my first look at myself in the mirror?

First Brush With Death:   Now really, what the heck kind of question is that?  I could have had a brush with death when I was 10 and I just don't know it.  Although there was the time that I was 3 or 4 and ran right out of the house and into the street into the path of an oncoming MBTA bus.  Whoops.  Maybe that time? 

First House/Flat Owned:
Who the heck owns a flat?  Other than people in Nebraska, that place is damn flat.  First house?  I owned a condo.  The head of the HOA was a raging bitch and lived across the hall from me.  I owned that condo 364 days exactly.  

First Film Seen at a Cinema:
Seriously?  Who calls it a film?  Or a cinema for that matter?  What are we, Downton Abbey or something?

First Media Appearance (Radio, Newspaper, TV):
My friend Debbie and I got our picture in the paper for waiting outside Sears at the Hanover (aka Hammana) Mall to buy U2 tickets.  Yup.  We're famous.

First Hospital Stay:  Birth?

First Book You Remember Reading:  See Spot Run.  Come on, who comes up with these.  Those Pauls are kind of dumb with their questions.

First Pet:  Napolean the dog.  Who, apparently had fleas.  So my mother brought him to the dog pound.  And left him there.  And bought my brother and I donuts and thought that would make us feel better.  Um.  Yeah.  Not so much, Mary... Not so much...

First Election You Voted In:  The first time I gave a crap was 1992, I think?  I voted for Clinton.  But really, even then I wasn't sure what the stakes were.  I pay more attention now.

You can just call me Gray Thunder Road mousepad

 Saturday 9: Call Me Maybe 

1) Do you owe anyone a phone call?
Yep.  No.  Wait.  Their fingers aren't broken.  No, no I don't owe anyone a phone call.  Oh, shit.  Yes I do.  I forgot to call Travis back the other day.  Sorry dude.  I'll call you later on today.   This whole having a 5 year old for the weekend - man, she is busy.  I forget how busy 5 year olds are!  LOL
2) Do you still have a landline phone?
LOLOL  OK - apparently the internet is CHEAPER with the home phone bundle.  Fine.  But I didn't get any extras - no long distance, can only make 50 calls/month, stuff like that.  the only thing I got was voice mail.  That's it.  And then we promptly LOST the phone.  Can't find it anywhere.  But that's OK - the only one that has that number?  Bill collectors.  And I get an email if I get a voice mail, so it's all good. So yes.  But not really.  
3) When was the last time you looked up a number in the phone book?
The only phone book I have is the school's that comes out every year.  And like every other phone book I've ever been given, I promptly looked us up.  ;-)
4) Do you receive more calls or texts? 
Texts...  But I don't have my phone on me 24/7, and some people get annoyed when I answer them 3 hours later - my response?  If it's that damn important - call me.  I'm not attached to my phone.  
5) Carly Rae made the Final 3 on Canadian Idol. Can you name another cultural import from Canada?
Um.  Duh.  Beer.   
6) Sam grew sick of this song by hearing it too often on the radio. Where do you listen to the radio most often? Car? Work? Somewhere else?
In the car I have my Sirius, and at work I listen to I Heart Radio.  I'm sick of commercials.  I can't listen to the morning DJ's here on the top 40 station - they make me want to scratch my eyeballs out and throw them at the moon.  Both of their voices just.. ew.. think whiney.  Nasally.  Both of them.  =shudder=
7) Mother Winters can work wonders with an iron and a can of spray starch. Every blouse and shirt she presses looks good as new. Is there a domestic chore you excel at?
Cooking!  Dammit.  I'm a good cooker.  Damn fine cooker.  I could cook for you right now.  What do you want?  Breakfast?  Pancakes?  A lovely strata?  Come on!  Gimme a real challenge..
8) Do you consider yourself competitive?
F you beyotch - don't change the subject.  Get back into the kitchen.  I'll whoop your ass.
9) Tell us your superhero name -- as determined by the color of your shirt and an item to your right. For example, Crazy Sam now fights crime as The Light Blue Coffee Mug!
Gray Thunder Road mousepad!  Yeah!

You probably think this song is about you...

Today we ripped off a writer named Chloerockchick from the group zetaboards. It is 50 questions we will do it in 2.5 parts,  She does not say who she got it fromBut, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go.

Sunday Stealing: The Basically Obscure Meme-Part 2

38: How did you spend Valentines day?
Um. you mean Valentimes day, don't you?  At least that's what I heard all day.  LOL  It was just another day.  That shit's dumb.  Dumb I tell you. 
39: Do you eat enough vegetables? 

What the hell.  You want to check my poop for corn, too?  No, allright.  No.  I don't.  But I like V8 - I get my veggies that way.
40: Do you like horror movies? How about thrillers?

Oh dear lord.  Evil Dead II.  Just go see it will you?  I can't wait to see Mama.  LOL  now listen - in my creepiest voice.... maaaaaaaaaaamaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa NO MAMA! 
41: Do you like scotch? 

I would rather take a very sharp hatchet and chop off my thumbs than ever drink scotch again.  Or whisky, for that matter. Unless of course I need to vomit.  Then I'm all in.
42: Who is someone you would never swear in front of? 

Lots of swearing questions in this never-ending meme.  What the fuck?
43: Coolest thing you've ever seen on Halloween? 

Me.  Dressed up as an outhouse.  LOL
44: If you could change your natural hair color, would you? To what?

Again - stalk much?  I'm over 40.  I don't even know what my natural hair color IS any more.  LOL
45: What subject would you take if you were forced to take a free class?

I actually just found out I was picked to take a free photography class Wednesday.  And I'm excited about it.  They only chose 25 people.  And I'm one of them.  So there. 
46: Do you use a reusable grocery bags? 

I have them.  I try to remember them.  But I usually fail.  Epically.  Is that even a word?
47: City or nature person? 

Both.  I love to visit the city, but then I love to come home to my little corner of the corn field. 
48: Have you ever used something other than "makeup" as makeup? (Like paint? Markers?) 

That's retarded.  Who are you?
49: Do heights bother you? can look look out the window on the top floor of a skyscraper? 

I can even stand on the glass-bottomed part of the walkway over the Grand Canyon.  THAT was cool..
50: Post 5 awesome things about your blog. BRAG AWAY!

It's mine.  
I can vent all I want - gotta love the freedom of speech.
People read it. 
People like it.
I have peeps.  They follow me.  It's cool.   
But on the downside, I have peeps that come here and do searches for themselves.  Talk about vain.

Pour Some Sugar on Me

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

1) Do you have a favorite "hair metal band?" 
No, and personally, I think they all should be shot.  And get their damn hair cut.  I don't like them OR stupid "boy bands".  Really.  Give yourself a not so cringe-worthy name.  That's just dumb.  Hair metal band.  Dumb. Give me some *real* music any time, not that crazy loud shit.  
2) Def Leppard got their start in South Yorkshire, England. Have you ever been to the UK?
Why yes, yes I have!  I spent a long weekend in London, and I've also spent 12 days in Ireland.  And I have 10 THOUSAND pictures of the changing of the guards.  Why?  I don't know.  It's just a bunch of guys in gray coats and big black fuzzy hats.  What the hell was I thinking?  

3) Who would you rather chat with, one-on-one: Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince William or Prince Harry? ooooh Prince Harry.  He's one hot little ginger there. 

4) Do you use real sugar, or a sugar substitute?
In what?  I'm sorry, you need to be more specific here.  Anyone else remember when there was no Frosted Flakes - and all we had was Corn Flakes and we put sugar on top of it?  Jesus, I'm dating myself LOL

5)  Valentine's Day is big for candy sales. Did you indulge in any Valentine-themed, sugary treats this week?
No.  And piss off.  Valentines Day is stupid.  And dumb.  But candy isn't.  BUT.. I figured out this week that chocolate is a trigger for me - I get hot flashes.  Stupid chocolate.  Stupid hot flashes.  Stupid stupid stupid.  Did you know, though, that there is no actual chocolate in my favorite - white chocolate?  Mmmmmmmm  HAH!  Take THAT you stupid hot flashes.  
6) Do you regularly balance your checkbook?
Haaaaaaaahahahahahahaaaa!!  That's funny.  Does anyone do that any more?  I actually have a checking account that has NO checks involved.  Just a debit card.  But if I didn't have online, I could balance it.  That shit's easy.     
7) What was your last impulse purchase?
The Jeep.  Oh.  Wait.  I haven't bought it yet - but I'll tell you, if I do buy a used car - I won't be buying it from Vinny the creepy neighbor!  Who just put his house up for sale - woot!  LOL  Oh wait.  Impulse purchase.   Um.... the shots I had last night.  Yeah.  Yeah.  Oh was I overserved.. oh dear...  but coffee helps.  And sleep.  I think I'm going to need more sleep.  definitely need more sleep. 
8) When Sam was a girl, she had nightmares about snakes under her bed. When did you last have a bad dream?
I had a freaky-deaky-ding-dong dream that I was a sniper and actually had to shoot someone, and it freaked me out and made me realize I couldn't be a sniper, then people were shooting at me - it was kind of weird.  And there were strange people in it.  
9) We're ordering pizza. Do you want deep dish or thin crust?
Thin crust, green peppers, onions and pineapple please.  Oh, man.  Now I'm hungry.  I know what I'm getting for lunch now!

Sunday Stealing: The Basically Obscure Meme-Part 2

21: Would you swear in front of your parents
One is dead, and if it's true that there is an afterlife, I swear in front of her ALL the time.. Shit.  Whoops..  And my father?  I think the last time I swore at him was when it was my birthday and I told him that as my one surviving parent, it would have been nice if HE had remembered it, but as it was not one fucking member of my family did.   Yeah.  See?  There have been issues for a while..

22: Which continents have you been on?
Two.... But they were good continents!  I swear! 
23: Do you get motion sickness? Any horror stories?
Nope.  I was on a plane from Houston to Cancun, and these big muscle heads around me were puking left and right and I was just sitting there saying "wheeeeeeeeeeeee"... LOLOLOLOL 

24: Why did you name your blog whatever you named your blog?
It's mine.  All mine.  And if you don't like it - then fuck off and don't read it.  Simple, really..

25: Would you wear a rainbow jacket? A neon yellow sweater? Checkered pants?
Really?  Is this a trick question?  Did you see that picture of me from 8th grade with the purple shirt and the rainbow across it?  Did you?  You bastard.  That better not show up somewhere on the interwebs... I'll shank a bitch..

26: What was your favorite cartoon growing up? Post a picture if you can.
I loved Hong Kong Phooey, but really?  My favorite Saturday watchings?  Creature Double Feature at 1:00.  I had to have all my chores done before I could sit and watch it (because Saturday was clean the shit outta everything day, you know) and I would fly through.  Because CDF was cool.  And sometimes?  Godzilla looked like he was going to lose...

27: In a past life I must have been a...
Oh God, who knows... Someone that had problems with their family, because as my stepsister said to me once "fix it in this life time so you don't have to deal with it in the next."  

28: If you had to look at one city skyline for the rest of your life, which would it be?
ohhhhhhohhhhhhhhh Boston, you're my home :) badum dum dum... dah dah dum... badum dum dum... dah dah dum...

29: Longest plane ride you've ever been on?
To Greece.  And no.  I didn't join the mile-high club, ya pig.  I was only 16. 

30: The longest you've ever slept?
Well, since I'm not dead - I'd have to say all day when I was sick.  What the hell kind of question is that?  Were you looking for 14 hours, 27 min. and 13 seconds?  Or were you looking for the longest amount of time that I've spent in my bed?  Because that could be a totally different answer now...  muahahahahahaaaa  Or the longest.. wait.  Never mind.  I'm going to give up while I'm ahead. 

31: Would you buy a sweater covered in kitten pictures? Would you wear it if someone gave it you for free?
Oh good LORD no.  What ever possessed someone to take a picture of kittens and put it on an oversized sweatshirt in the first place?  And for the record - someone DID give me one once, and it was promptly passed on to my aunt who is mentally challenged - and she loved it.  Me?  I knew right then and there that it had been a good decision to end that relationship. 

32: Do you pluck your eyebrows?
Are you looking in my windows?  I was just doing that.  Freak.  Stalker.  I'm calling the cops.  Oh, and speaking of stalker freaks, my freak stalker neighbor Vinnie put his house up for sale.  WOOT! 

33: Favorite kind of bean? Kidney? Black? Pinto?
If I had to choose?  Kidney.  But I have a killer recipe that requires all three.  And one time, I made beans for a little soiree that my old roommate and I threw.  It was a brunch, and it was an excuse to see if the boy's father would show up - to gauge his interest - so this was HOLY SHIT 20 years ago (obviously before we'd started seeing each other)!!  But I remember it like it was yesterday.  I don't know WHAT I put into those mothers, but M.A. (my roommate) and I, after it was all over, sat in the kitchen on the floor, farting.  And it was so bad - we had to keep changing rooms - literally.  I laugh every time I have beans, thinking of that.  Hopefully she'll chime in here and add her 2 cents.  LOL
Oh, and for the record?  He didn't show, but he did call.  I think that was the day he dumped the crazy ex who's now the live-in, to go out with me.  Don't ask.  Too complicated.  LOL

34: How far can you throw a baseball?
As far as I need to.  And you? 

35: If you had to move to another country, where would you move?
The U.K.  But why would I have to move?  Am I exiled because of something I did?  Someone I associated with?  I had the craziest dream last night that I was working for the courts again, but someone made me work as an assassin (for the court).  It was some crazy shit.  And I kept having to drive up hills covered in snow.  Huh.  Anyone want to interpret THAT? 

36: Have you ever eaten Ethiopian food? Vietnamese? Korean? Nepalese? How was it?
Yes, yes, yes, no.  Why, you thinking of trying it?  Everyone likes different things, so I'm not going to tell you.  It is a surprise.  But go spicy.  That's all I'm saying..

37: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Seriously?  What are we, 5?   I'll tell you who's wood I'd LIKE to chuck, though.... (come on Lance, you knew I'd find a way somehow.. LOLOLOLOL)

Hell on a job interview, I tell ya!

The Way We Were

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: The Way We Were   Play  along.. I dare you :)
1) In honor of Valentine's Day next week, what's the most romantic movie you can think of?
Moonstruck?  I don't know.  I like action movies.  Maybe a James Bond flick?  They're romantic, in an "I'm going to show you a good time and then leave you wanting more" kind of way... Kind of like my life LOL

2) The Way We Were was a tearjerker. Do you think that most real-life love stories end in heartbreak? Or do you believe in happily ever after?
Hmmmmm.... I think that Wesley and Buttercup had twuuuuuuuuu wuvvvvvv.... Other than that?  It's all shit.  

3) What's your favorite love song?
Oh, there are so many... Why don't we get drunk and screw... I just bought a water bed, filled up for me and youuuuuuuuu.. I used to have a waterbed.  It was fun trying to get out of that sucker 8 months pregnant.  I had to rock back and forth and project myself out of it.  LOL  **edited to add - if I had to choose one?  "Happy".. Bruce Springsteen.  Check it out.. 

4) In 1993, Barbra Streisand married actor James Brolin, who first became famous as Dr. Steven Kiley on Marcus Welby, MD. Who is your favorite TV doctor?
McSteamy.. McDreamy...  Dammit, why can't Adam Levine play a doctor?  He can play doctor with me any time.. Oh.  wait.  I'm sorry.  I got distracted.  What was the question?
5) In 2012, Streisand renewed her contract with Columbia, where's she's been recording since 1963. So she's been with the same label for fifty years! Where have you worked the longest, and how long was that?
Mom.  16 years.   Best job I've ever had :)
6) Sam Winters once worked as a hostess in a chic bistro in Worcester, PA. That's why she frequently gets  frustrated by bad service in restaurants -- she's certain she could make it run more smoothly. Where do you find yourself getting annoyed most often?
Stupidity, laziness, liars..  And after some conversations with my son about his father, he now gets it that I'll get mad if he does something stupid, but it's 10 times worse if he lies about it..
7) Have you ever taken a polygraph test?
No, do I need to?  Listen, Siri TOLD me the best place to hide a body.  As far as I know, it's still there..
8) Crunchy, smooth or organic peanut butter?
Mmmmmm Peter Pan crunchy + potato chips = crunchy chip love..
9) Describe your favorite sweater.
Really?  Any cardigan.  I can't wear big heavy sweaters any more.  You try feeling like your insides are 150 degrees and then strip down.  It makes people around you uncomfortable if all of a sudden, you're wearing nothing but a sports bra.  Hell on job interviews, let me tell you... LMAO

I used to look like that..

Today we ripped off a writer named Chloerockchick from the group zetaboards. It is 50 questions we will do it in 2.5 parts,  She does not say who she got it fromBut, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go.

Sunday Stealing: The Basically Obscure Meme 
1: Do you notice a persons eye color? 
What the hell kind of question is that?  Do I notice a person's eye color.  When?  When I'm checking them out?  When I'm just talking to them?  Sometimes.  But sometimes I just don't care what color a person's eyes are.

2: White, milk, or dark chocolate mocha? 

Ahhhhhhh really?  Are we talking about chocolate here, or how I like my men?  Because there could be different answers for both.  LOL  Or maybe we're talking about shakes?  My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard...  oh.  Sorry.  Got carried away.. lol

3: If you could get a  tattoo free, would you do it? what would it be?
I would love to get a shamrock with a Boston "B" in it.  I already have one, it's faded. 

4: Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it? 

I grew up about 12 miles outside of Boston in a mid-sized town.  I think it's officially a "city" these days.  I liked the fact that I could work in Boston, or as a kid we could go into the city very easily.  Now?  I'm loving living in Mayberry - because that's where I am now. 
5: Your favorite adult as a child? (and not your parents, if they were your favorite)
Probably my aunt Harriet.  She was more like a big sister to me.  And lots of people always thought we were sisters, and that always pissed my mother off.  LOL

6: What kind of smoothie sounds really good right now?
Ohhhhhhhhhh I seee..... still trying to get my answer for #2, eh??  Or wait - that'd be for a milkshake.  How about a banana smoothie... mmmmmmmm bananassssss...

7: Most embarrassing moment from your elementary school years?

oh Jesus.  All of them?
8: Most embarrassing moment from your middle school years?

Oh Jesus, all of them..
9: Most embarrassing moment from your high school years?
Probably when I got my period and was wearing white pants, and I had to walk home.  It just got worse.  

10: Have you ever fired anyone?
Does breaking up with a boyfriend count?  Because really, it was like firing someone.  Some cried, some begged for their job back, some stormed out.  Some were like, "huh"??  Yeah...

11: Have you ever climbed a tree more than twenty feet off the ground?
We had a huge pine tree in our back yard growing up - of course I climbed more than 20' up.  I had siblings that would make fun of me if I was chicken. 

12: Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing set?

Yes, and yes
13: If you could have any pet in the world, illegal or not, what would you get? 

A gremlin.  LOL
14: What's your favorite place to relax? 

Adam Levine's face...  LOL  oh.  too soon? During the summer?  My hammock.  The winter?  This right here is my down time.

15: What's your most favorite part of your personality? 

The part where I make people laugh.. LOL
16: Madonna or Lady Gaga? Neither? Both? Who cares? 

Oh, come on Lance - you KNOW you opened yourself up for this one.....
I used to look like her.  Before I got sick.  LOL

17: Have you ever watched the Superbowl all the way through? 
Many times.  What, you need a recap?  Watch it yourself!
18: Have you ever watched any major sporting event live? 

Seriously?  I'm 47 years old (I know, you'd never guess it...)  I've been to baseball, basketball, hockey AND football games.  AND I have seen Rod Stewart more than once, so that classifies me as having seen Futball/Soccer.  One of my favorite things to do is go to MLB games in other cities.  Next up is Wrigley - it's #1 on my "to do" list..

19: What's the most delicious food you've ever eaten in your life? 

OMG we stayed in San Juan for a night after a cruise, and there was a restaurant at the hotel we were staying at - the El Convento - and they had this chicken and asparagus dish that was to die for.  The hotel was a redone convent - and it was AH-mazing..  gorgeous.  mmmmm now I want to go.. LOL
20: Margarine or butter? Which did you grow up with? 

Both.  We'd get butter if it was a good week.  Spam if it wasn't.

And the wine... OH the wine..

Saturday 9: Aida  <---- :="" along="" click="" here="" p="" play="" to="">

1) Have you ever been to the opera?  Nope.  Have you?  I know that back in 4th grade when I kicked Donny Sargent in the balls he was singing opera, does that count?  And for the record - I didn't do it for any other reason than he dared me.  I think he learned never EVER to dare anyone that again.  
  2) Maria Callas was often called a "diva." Is that a compliment or a criticism?
Mariah Carey is a diva.  J-Lo is a diva.  I don't know Maria Callas.  You don't know Jack. 
3) Aida was composed by famous Italian Giusseppe Verdi. In addition to opera, what else can the world thank Italy for?
 VERY hot Italian men... and the wine... oh the wine!
4) Verdi was Italian and Callas was Greek. Would you rather vacation in Italy or Greece?
Seeing as I've spent a month in Greece, while I didn't get to see it all - I've been there.  I'd love to go to Italy.  And drink wine.  Oh, the wine...
5) The Marx Bros. starred in A Night at the Opera. What's the funniest movie you have ever seen? Evil Dead II.  Did you ever see it?  Funnier than shit.  When the guy's hand is possessed and it beats the crap out of him?  FUN-NEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
  6) What's for dinner tonight?
I don't know - what time will you be over to cook? 
 7) Are you wearing any jewelry right now?
I always wear my diamond necklace and my cape cod bracelet.  They're pretty.  Wanna see?

8) Sam Winters has a scratchy throat and watery eyes. How do you treat the common cold?
oh, I beat the shit out of it with Echinachea and hot tea
9) Do you need your glasses (or contacts) when you drive?
Well, I'm sure I could drive without them, but if you were in front of me or behind me, you'd certainly appreciate me wearing them, that's for sure!
