ME in ten questions, times TWO

My man Jay is like "do the ten questions" and its like "yeah, slow news day, so let's just show them what we GOT"

1. is there one book that you reread with some sort of regularity? (every 2 years, once a decade sort of thing) and if so, why?
I read THE SHIPPING NEWS twice, it is so good, and I finished the book by Brad Smith ALL HAT and started reading it again right away and probably read all of Robertson Davies books twice, but that is it. I am not a rereader, but I loved those books---funny, they are all CANADIAN!

2. do you still watch cartoons? and if so, which ones and why those in particular?
I watch South Park and the why is because it is NAUGHTY.

3. what's the one thing you can't imagine living without on a daily basis?

The one thing???? The wife, the beagle, the peanut butter!

4. take out/take away or home cooking more than three times a week?
Dang, its like, eat out once a month at most, take out once a year. I am a good cook.

5. which is your most favorite room in your home?
Mmmm..the bedroom....

6. are you currently following/regularly watching a tv series? which one and why?
No TV, but I like to watch a bunch of THE OFFICE episodes on netflix....funny, because i have never worked in an office...

7. have you seen the player?
Don't know what it is?

8. other than your blog, do you keep a personal journal?

9. do you have a favorite movie quote that you routinely use?

10. will you tag 6 bloggers or will you leave this open ended and accept answers in comments?
I don't like to make people do things. Help yerself if you want these questions.

1. You’re building your dream house. What’s the one thing that this house absolutely, positively MUST HAVE? (other than the obvious basics of course)
The house has gotta have a studio for pots and a fenced yard for the dawgs!!!!!

2. What is your dream car?
My elderly subaru is fine, but golly, Mini coopers are SWEET

3. What is your favorite website that isn’t a blog.
phhhbbbt...what else is there? well, facebook has become a very useful way to trade teh trashy gossip :)

4. iPhone 4 or Droid, which do you want?
I don't have a cellphone and don't know what either of those are.

5. When you’re feeling down or lonely or just generally out of sorts, what do you do to cheer yourself up?
Down? MAKE STUFF! Yesterday was a crappy day, for example, but the more I made the better I felt. I think Americans don't do enough stuff---you are happy when you accomplish something.

6. Tell me about something or someone that you love that most people seem to hate.
I like European socialist programs and a lot of Americans don't seem to see the same benefit in them that I do, ha!

7. What do you want to be when you grow up?
If I was not a potter, which I am, I would be a cartoonist or comic book illustrator or a drummer! I have never touched drums but I know I would love them...

8. Would you go on a reality show if given the chance?
I already live life online, SURE!

9. Who was your favorite teacher when you were growing up. (Grade school, Middle School, Jr. High or High School only.)
I didn't have one. I hated school until I was in grad school. SCHOOL SUCKS!

10. You get one pass to do something illegal or immoral. What are you gonna do?
Go find a certain ex-president's house in Texas and get my dog to take a dump on his lawn.

Great answers Gary. You gotta come to visit. We could break out the drum set and R O C K. Then drive down to Texas w. the dogs. !

jim said...

amigo... i can't believe how many answers we'd answer the same like, what is "the player" and "i don't have a cell phone".

Jill Brown said...

Okay... this was aweseome! My FAVORITE Q/A was the one about a certain ex-president in TX! :)

OK, we like, get together all of us in a RV? Dogs, friends, a few six packs and some doritos, and BRING THOSE DOGS to texas. And take a little walk....

Gordo said...

Ditto on Robertson Davies. He was from Kingston, eh?

Reverend Awesome said...

There are just too many illegal things I want to do.

Unknown said...

Great answers, I love the answer to number 10!

Jay said...

Wow! You answered all 20 of 'em!

Taking your dog to Texas to dump on the ex president's lawn is hilarious!

Great job dude!

Cheryl said...

Yes!! Answer #10 was the best, if you go to Texas can I come too with BuddyTheElf??
