Open Forum Responses Part 1

Assuming I get more questions, there will be more parts. In the 80's, when Wendy's was going against McDonald's nuggets and regarding chicken, they said, "Parts is parts!"

What personal item will you refuse to throw away even if Amy makes you sleep on the couch?
You know, I don't think there is anything I value THAT much. The only thing that even remotely comes to mind is a personalized, autographed t-shirt I was given by Debbie Gibson.

Ginger or Mary Ann?
Mary Ann, definitely more attracted to the girl next door.

Mass emails: Read and forward or delete right away?
Those get deleted.

What cars have you had?
1985 Chevrolet Cavalier ("a red one" for those fans of the film Swingers) which I bought from my parents. 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier (white 2-door, manual trans) and my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo - still going strong at over 181,000 miles.

Big shot in school or nerd?
A little of both. 6'2" and 315lbs was not a popular size but I blended well with all groups. I was the President of the computer club, an officer in the German Club, active in student council, and the drug/alcohol awareness club. I volunteered in the library. I got 2 days of in-school suspension for getting into a fistfight over a game of chess. I played football and was in the marching band (different years). In my Senior yearbook, I am in it something like 25 times. My friends were in groups that included the athletes, socialites, academics, nerds, metal heads... to quote the secretary in Ferris Bueller, I was a "righteous dude."

Do you eat your mac & cheese with a fork or a spoon?
A fork.
How many times do you check your email in a day?
Depends on whether or not I am working, 2-3 if working, maybe 6-8 if not.
If you could have any job in the world, what would you do?
See dream job above. Though add, Broadway musical star.
If you could change the color of asphalt, what would it be?
Can't say I would change it, it would confuse too many people and too many people have enough trouble driving as it is.

6 if you include my Teva sandals. Then it's my brown Rockports for work, my black wingtip dress shoes, my black sneakers for work (no-slip), my Reebok sneakers and a pair of black Converse Chucks from my brother Tim's wedding (we wore them with the tuxes). Oh, and I do own a pair of Durango cowboy boots (brown).

A professional baseball player.

Was that a burn on Clay Aiken? Very funny (sorry, I'm not responding to individual comments on my own post!)

Okay - so a fistfight over a chess game - that whole concept is an oxymoron... :-0

Ooooh, I'm so with you on the Classic Mustang - only I want one that I can restore myself!

Broadway musical star? What will be the title of your break through role?

Chuck T's in a wedding? That's awesome! I wonder if my future husband to be will be okay with that - perhaps that should be a dating criteria for me from now on - I will only date men who are okay with getting married in Chuck T's - awesome! :-)

Hehe, great answers! (although I do need an answer to my followup broadway Q!)

Happy Tuesday :-)

Amy said...

Love your answers and getting to know you. Especially the Ford Mustang answer! My hubby and i have our own Mustang restoration shop. This is not a plea for customers, but check it out if you want. My hubby's been on some magazine covers with one of his cars. Pretty cool.

My question is do you have a life verse or what is one verse you cling to, especially in times of trouble?
