Bonkrood. 1. Do you say “Hi,” to people you don’t know? If they look like they might be friendly, I do. If they look like they might give me the “who the fuck are YOU?” look, I don’t bother. 2. What is the name of the first person you kissed? John Bowie. 3. Do you still talk to this person? Not in about 20 years, and I don’t miss him. 4. Recite a line from a movie? Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straightened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin’? 5. What movie was that from? O Brother, Where Art Thou? 6. Do you play by the rules? If I know what they are. 7. Name another word for penis. Dick Cheney. HAHAHA! 8. Do you complain a lot? Too much, sometimes. 9. Have you ever been to Canada? A couple of times as a kid when we were stationed at Loring AFB, and then when I was in my 20s – Debbie and I took a “cruise to nowhere”, a 24-hour cruise that went from Portland to Nova Scotia and back. Well – I never actually got off the ship, so I’m not sure if that counts. 10. Do you have an addictive personality? I lean in that direction, yes. 11. What size would you say your nose is? Medium? 12. What is someones name that begins with the letter, A? Aunt Annie’s Alligator, A A A. 13. Name someone whose plastic surgery turned out poorly? Farrah Fawcett. 14.

Most of the time. 17. Name a TV show or movie, that impacted society? Er… my mind is blank. Oh, I know – Survivor, because it spawned all the reality shows that came along afterward. For that matter, I guess the original reality show was Real World. 18. Name a song that has the word “baby” in it? Ice Ice Baby. 19. Name your favorite Disney movie? The Fox and the Hound. The last lines from that movie (“And we’ll always be friends forever. Won’t we?” “Yeah, forever.” ) make me tear up, just thinking about it. 20. Have you ever been scuba diving? No. With my luck, I’d end up with a stingray barb through the heart. 21. Name a profession you would NOT like to have? Factory worker. 22. Name someone you know who has red hair. Coppertop! 23.

Boxing doesn’t interest me. 27. Did you ever stutter, or have a hard time pronouncing words? Luckily, no. Although recently I’ll go to say something and the words will come out all mixed up. I’m trying to decide if it’s something I should be concerned about. Like I’ll try to say “The cats are lucky I noticed they were out of food” and it’ll come out “The lucky cats are” etc. I realize right away it’s not coming out right and stop and sometimes start again the same way. It’s kind of bizarre. 28. Do you eat out, or buy groceries, more often? Buy groceries, but I’d eat out at EVERY meal if given the choice. 29. What month are many of your friends born in?

Nothing interesting, though I should get an “Eggrr” license plate, dontchathink? 37. Name a type of dance. The Cabbage Patch. 38. Name a type of Martini. Dirty Martini? Is that a type of Martini, or did I make it up? I’m not a martini drinker, so I don’t know. 39. Would you rather do the dishes or fold laundry? I hate them about equally; I do dishes a lot more often than I do the laundry, though. 40. Did you have braces? If so, how long did you have to wear them? Yeah, I had them. Not for long though, I don’t think. Maybe nine months or a year? All I remember is that I had them tightened the DAY before Thanksgiving, which made my Thanksgiving SUCK ASS. 41.

A Mexican restaurant Fred and I stopped at on the way home from Tigers for Tomorrow the last time we went. I don’t remember the name or where it was, but their quesadilla was to die for.
