What is your favorite word or phrase? “Fucking.” Best adjective on the fucking planet.
Tell us about a person who made you smile today. Someone suggested I try a new Asian restaurant. I have severe reservations.
What were you doing at 8 am this morning? Sleeping. It’s the fucking weekend. My wife gets up at 6 every day. On the weekend it gives her four hours each day to work on her YouTube show before I’m even up.
What were you doing 30 minutes ago? Searching for a prescription. Don’t you hate it when you put a very important item in a safe place and then you still can’t find it? I was having brunch (I get up too fucking late to call it breakfast) which was nova lox on a bagel with capers and cream cheese. I can never get enough!
What is your favorite holiday? Why? Halloween. I do like dressing up. I’m usually a Klingon.
We are heading back to the second Trekondernoga weekend where the guys from “Star Trek New Voyages” has a complete duplicate set of the original set down to the items on the walls. They recently (along with all fan Star Trek productions, new guidelines that will shut them down) stopped filming episodes, but I think this ruling by CBS & Paramount will be changed.
Tell us about a visit to another country. I love St. Martin. Half the island is Dutch and the other half is French. The cultures are very different, so there is much to explore and enjoy. Gambling casinos on the French side. Terrific shops on the Dutch part. But if you go, do Orient Beach. It’s a nude beach that you just have to see.
What is the last thing you said aloud? “I’ll be fine.” Kathy was asking me if I found everything to make my bagel. I think she felt guilty for not doing it for me. I keep telling her that I don’t expect her to do that. But it is an ongoing issue.
What was the last thing you had to drink? Diet Coke. It’s how I wake up. I did treat myself to two glasses of Smirnoff last night. I never thought that I could go from a daily drinker to someone who drinks occasionally. But I’ve done it.
What are you wearing right now? A Star Trek tee and jeans.
What was the last thing you ate? I guess I ‘splained that too soon. My bad.
Have you bought any new clothing items this week? I got a Klingon uniform to wear next weekend It wasn’t expensive and the reviews said it was great except that the head peace sucks. And they are right. But since I already had an excellent head piece so I didn’t care. The belt is lame. It’s got a picture of a belt buckle and it’s not a belt at all. So I scoured the internet and found a great belt buckle and a medal to wear on the uniform. Kathy wants to be a “red shirt” so we got that costume as well.
When was the last time you ran? God, am I old. I don’t even remember.
What’s the last sporting event you watched? I watched the Yankees lose not so long ago. I watched so little this year. The team sucks and is SO boring to watch. But now that we’ve traded our most valuable players and got prime prospects back, we should be in good shape going forward.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? Didn’t we do this? I’m a fucking lousy meme host.
Who is the last person you sent a comment/message to on Facebook? It was probably something about Star Trek. After last year’s event, we all friended each other. Then the madness started. I went from 80-something friends to over 3,000. They included actors, directors and fans of all things science fiction.
Ever go camping? If yes, tell us about one time. I spent a night to decide if I wanted to be a Boy Scout. I want 13 or so. I went with Gypsy and we didn’t sleep. But the thunderstorms had something to do with it. We literally got taken out of the shelter and kicked in the ass for talking. It was like the military. I knew that moment that I wanted nothing to do with anything that was even slightly like the military.
Do you think a tan improves your looks? Sure, but it’s stupid. We know too much to think it’s a great idea. Although the Donald’s fake orange one is swell. That sure was a great move getting into a fight with a Muslim couple whose son paid the ultimate sacrifice, no? He is scary stupid.
Have you ever lost anything down a toilet? Why did you lose something?
What is your guilty pleasure? “Big Cat Diary”. I’m really into African wildlife in particular big cats. I’ve watched every episode at least three times, but it is so well done it is amazing.
I don’t know if you remember the bit we used to do call “Bud’s Laws”. They are now on our website and you can view them here. Someone game me a lot more that are similar to what I’ve got. I did not write a one. I just compiled them over the years when I got to 50 I stopped. But starting today we will add one each time we post.
- Sex is not the answer. Sex is the question. The answer is “yes”.
Sorry that I’m missing you guys on Saturday 9. I’ll be back when my hosting duties are over. Have a great weekend. See you soon. Same time. Same blog.
