On Mondays, we were doing my friend Harriet’s Monday Mayhem. We stopped when she went to video. Not because it’s not an interesting idea, because it is. We just don’t do it. Go figure. This week she made it video optional and we’re back. In truth, we will probably do the questions video free unless Harriet throws us out. It’s happened before. Also, we want to start doing Cat’s meme that we tried a few weeks back, Curious as a Cat. So it’s a meme merger of sorts. Man, can we use a lot of words to say nothing.
Q1. What brand/flavor of chewing gum would you recommend to the rest of us? None. I can think of nothing less attractive than watching someone chewing away. I mean, can’t you just do it in the car or at home?
Q2. What brand/flavor of beverage would you recommend to the rest of us? I LOVE this question! It gives me a chance to “recommend” alcohol. *Drum roll*! Vodka: Smirnoff is the best selling liquor on Mother Earth. It is also the best value. In a New York Times blind taste test it beat Grey Goose, Absolut, Ketel One and other much more highly priced vodkas. My favorite of the high ends? Ketel One. Gin: Tanqueray has no equal. If you ever tasted both Bombay and Tanq without know which was which, you’d think Bombay was just bad rot gut. Scotch: You cannot beat and of the Johnnie Walker lines. Tequila: Little known Don Julio is Mexico’s favorite and by far the best.
Patron is a very well marketed poor imitation. Of course about four out of ten bottles sold is Jose Cuervo. To most of us, Cuervo is tequila. Rum: Captain Morgan is much more interesting than Bacardi. Canadian: Crown Royal. It’s a version of Seagram’s V.O. Made for the visit of King George’s first trip to Canada. Bourbon: I sell Bulleit and Jermiah Weed. Kathy’s the bourbon connoisseur, her last purchase was Jim Beam. She tends to switch a lot.
Q3. Describe the perfect steak (vegetarian’s can describe the perfect tofu or whatever). I had the Melbourne at Outback last night. It’s hard to top that.
1) Who is your favorite fictional character? What would you do if you met him or her? James Bond. I’d offer him a Smirnoff martini, shaken not stirred.
2) What part of the human body do you find to be the weirdest? Feet. They’re just ugly. I do not understand foot fetishes at all. But sex is so personal, that’s not a value judgment. “Whatever gets you through the night”. (John Lennon)
3) What song reminds you of a specific time in your life? What about it makes that time so memorable? Reasons by Earth, Wind and Fire brings me back to my time as New London’s favorite nightclub personality, spinning discs at The Dialtone Disco Dome. It’s where I first met Kathy some thirty plus years ago. We just took a long time to hook up. We never danced to it back in the day, but we do now. 🙂
4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one. I assume it’s tobacco. I quit smoking it seven years ago. For someone who thinks we write a comedy blog, today wasn’t the slightest bit funny. Or amusing. Sometimes you get what you pay for. Sorry, mates.
