This week's installment of "A Meme in Five Parts." In Act Three, we find our intrepid subject pondering the deeper ponderables of life to be pondered and asking this question: Who names the colors of the crayons in a box of Crayolas?
21. Who do you expect to do this first?
See #20 in Act II.
22. Pepsi or Coke?
Neither. Dr. Pepper or ice cold water. Or, on a really hot day, ice cold Lemonade Gatorade.
23. Beavers or Ducks?
Is this a trick question? If it isn't, then neither. I'm partial to penguins.
24. Morning or Nite Owl?
Night owl, from day one.
25. Pedicure or Manicure?
Pedicure, all the way.
26. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share?
Nothing new. Still working on that, though. Unless you consider telling someone you won't go to church with them exciting, that's about all the new news I have.
27. What did you want to be when you were little?
Astronaut, Marine Biologist (and I grew up in the desert, 800 miles from the nearest ocean; go figure…), Doctor, Architect. As I haven't grown up, I'm now leaning toward Florist or Mortician.
28. What is your best childhood memory?
Only one? Phffft. Being Tinker Bell in the school play when I was six, then going to Disneyland on vacation with my family. The bumblebee jackets me mother made for me and my sister out of yellow, white, and brown striped terry cloth. Spending two weeks in Wyoming with my grandparents and having my grandmother teach me how to paint and fire porcelain. The cherry tree in the backyard of the house I grew up in. The box from the refrigerator that we wore out using as a fort, a ship, a castle, a race car.... Christmases and Halloweens and Thanksgivings and birthdays. I have lots of good childhood memories.
29. Ever been to Africa ?
Never have. I’d like to, though.
30. Been in a car accident?
Oh yeah. Couple of years ago at the intersection of Rhode Island and 15th Streets. It wasn’t pretty. Fortunately, I walked away uninjured (thank God for Ralph Nader and his insistence on airbags and seat belts), but my poor little Honda Civic—which I had just finished paying off three months previously—was a total loss. I’m still sad about that.
There you have it! Stayed tuned for Act IV next week, when Jay can be heard to ask Bee, "Why is that Dirty Bastard Cat never around when there's a spider in my path?!"
