Welcome to Wednesday Wickedness on WTIT: The Blog. This meme appealed to us because of a twist in its concept. Each week Janera Jepson (its host) picks a celebrity. She digs up ten quotes from the person and asks her questions based on the quotes. Who would think someone would do something original? We didn’t see that coming. Anyway, she is a friend of Crazy Sam, so we are on board. Let’s do it. The quotes and meme questions are in bold.
Do you live your life by moderation or extremes? I sometimes try to point out that Bud Weiser is just a character that I created for the WTIT Blog. And while that is true, there is a lot of that character in me. I do not do moderation. It’s boring. I always try to push my luck. And truth be told, I get most of my exercise by pushing my luck.
Have you ever thought someone was flirting with you in a work environment? What happened? When you are 259, you have seen and done almost everything that could happen in the work place. Yes, women have flirted. Some of them led to some very interesting nights. Some happened when I was spoken for. I do not step out on the woman in my life. And not because I’ll go to hell or lose someone, but because I never wanted to do that. If I am thinking of a side adventure, it’s time to move on from the main event.
Have you ever “thought big” and you wound up crashing and burning? Yes. Once I bet my whole paycheck on my favorite team. You remember, they are the Connecticut Cupcakes of the National Naked Women’s Volleyball League. They were robbed! Those refs sucked! Losing two weeks pay is not pretty. Explaining to your wife why you were even watching the Cupcakes was even worse.
Do you believe in luck? If not, do you feel it all happens to us for a reason? Yes, I believe in luck. I do not believe that you “make your own luck”, which is said by people who have never had adversity. You get good and bad luck all the time. How you deal with it is key. Oh. And no I do not believe that there is a “MASTER PLAN”. Because if “everything happened for a reason” then it is all predetermined. I think you get into a great threesome by skill, not because it happened for a reason.
5. “Experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you’re generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don’t make.”
Have you ever benefited big time because you declined an offer, investment, job (Well you get the idea.)? I have benefited from declining an offer to stay married. It is weird how the dynamics of separation create some very fascinating naked moments.
Tell us about someone that you know that has all the money they need. You’ve got to be fucking joking. While I do not personally know anyone who does not need more money, I sure watch a lot on TV and at the movies. And let’s not forget the music. Those fuckers write the soundtrack to our lives. They also make a ton of dinero.
Do you think running your country like a business would be a good thing? I became president of the condo association that I lived in by promising to run it like a business. That said, a 110 unit condo complex is not waging war or bailing out banks. In closing, my fellow Americans, I’d say kill all the politicians. After the lawyers, of course. Happiness is a warm gun?
8. “I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. That’s were the fun is.”
Do you live in the past in any way? Yes. I have every WTIT tape that we ever recorded. I can listen to everyone who came to a party I had before my senior prom, to the night my daughter Heather was born. And from there through everyone’s marriage, divorces and grandkids. The beat truly does go on. I don’t live there, but I can place myself in the past and in a moment.
9. “If you’re interested in ‘balancing’ work and pleasure, stop trying to balance them. Instead make your work more pleasurable.”
How are you at balancing work and pleasure? As long as work comes first, the rest falls into place. I mean that if a never ending pit is “a place”.
Tell us about a time that you won the battle but lost the war. Yes. I doing a threesome once and convinced my ladies that adding just one more woman would be rad. They agreed. The new addition was a total ass! Who knew? Now that was one ugly fight. I mean, until I left. They were still pulling hair when I exited. I mean, I woulda stayed, but I happened to have a date that night.
We will return with something.
Whether you are ready or not.
