I know, I know. Another tag/meme. Shall I say this is my last one? Tell me if I should. I'm guessing folks are getting tired of reading these - if so, my apologies. I was hit once more - and it was by a fellow blogger whom I really enjoy reading - so of course I will play, who wouldn't? It's my buddy Morton of 21st Century Fox and When It Rains. His first blog has some one-liners that will slay you - especially in this post, where you must read the part when he tells his wife he's going to Best Buy. His other blog is mostly poetry that is chock full of emotion and imagery - a great read that sticks to your bones.
What is your favorite quotable line from a movie?
Yeeeeaaah, I'm gonna have to go ahead and quote from Office Space [didja GET the memo?]. The entire movie is one long quote, but how about:
"You've been missing a lot of work lately..."
"Well, I wouldn't say I've been missing it...."
Who is the most famous person you have spoken to?
In my dreams, I've spoken to almost everyone - so I'm really quite ubiquitous. But, in the early 90s when I was involved in the music scene, I probably met about 50 famous and/or cultish musicians. I tried typing some names and just can't bring myself to do it - it feels too weird.
How many bags of chips are consumed at your place in a month?
We are strictly a white-corn tortilla chip household, now that I consider the subject at length. I'd say we buy about 4 bags a month. Little piglets we are. [I feel like I structured that last sentence while channeling Yoda from Star Wars, what happened there?]
Who is your favorite all time cartoon character?
Probably Pepe Le Pew; he was so charming with that accent and all - such a ladies man. Or, there was a little, blue dog that used to eat dog treats, and afterward - he'd rub his belly while saying "yum, yum, yum" and float to the ceiling - I LOVED him as a kid. Who was he? Did I imagine him?
What foreign food dish do you prepare from scratch and serve?
Besides a slew of desserts? I make some pretty good coconut-curry steamed mussels.
What is your favorite section of the supermarket?
I love the accoutrement section - gazing at all the kitchen tools...tool porn. And the bakery, but of course! More food porn for Mama!
What was your high school's team mascot and what were the school's colors?
Yeah, let's just bring up the worst years of everyone's life, shall we? The years where we tell kids "these are the BEST years of your life!" - and afterward you go "if those were the best years of my life, no wonder all those people drank the Kool-aid in Jonestown for chrissakes"! But I digress - it was the eagle; purple and white. In other words, a fashion disaster that knew no bounds. Good times. DON'T drink the Kool-aid! Those are not the best years of your life!
So, that's all I got. And don't worry, I won't tag any of you - so stop hiding in the corner back there. If you do feel like using the tag - cool, I'd love to see your answers - so let me know if you use it on your blog. Otherwise, feel free to share a little secret of your own right here. You KNOW how I eat it up.
And, now for some gratitude. The extremely and eternally lovely Jennifer from Thursday Drive has given me the Arte Y Pico award! A huge thank you to Jennifer! If you have not visited her blog, it really is a must - it is a daily visit for me and you'll quickly see why. I know I am supposed to pass this on to 5 more people, but feel unprepared at the moment - plus, there are so many blogs I read, I just can't imagine whittling it down to five (I never was able to the last time someone gave me this award either, I'm hopeless). For now though, I want to pass along my gratitude.
