Saw that John (aka Thales aka the guy who wore the kilt to the Kirkland fotolog meetup) was playing The Interview Game, figured what the hey.

If you want me to interview you, just leave me a comment.

1. leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2. i will respond; i'll ask you five questions.
3. you'll update your website with my five questions, and your five answers.
4. you'll include this explanation.
5. you'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.

Here are your questions:
1. Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bed post overnight?
Sugar free, peppermint flavored, yes. Sugary, cinnamon flavored, no. At least, last time I checked.

2. What was the first record/tape/CD that you purchased with your own money?
Graceland by Paul Simon, 1986. Ended up in my mother's car, where she wore it out playing "You Can Call Me Al" [over and]^20 over again. I made her a tape in college that was just "You Can Call Me Al" for 90 whole minutes.

3. Do you still listen to it?
I don't even own it. 700 CDs and I don't own Graceland.

4. If you had 3 months to live, what would you want to do? Give me the highlights.
Find some villa or monestary in Italy to spend the remainder of my days. Visit Roman ruins. Enjoy being with my wife. Write nastygrams to ex-girlfriends.

5. If you had to give up one of your 5 senses, for some crazy reason like world peace, which would it be?
We talking universal world peace here, no wars or battles or torture or having to listen to John Lennon prat on about how much of a frikkin' dreamer he is? If so, I might consider taste. Maybe. But it better be real world peace, because I'm thinking the buttery taste of movie popcorn is a lot to give up if there are still kids toting AK-47s in Uganda. Hey, maybe if we gave the warring armies of the world movie popcorn, they'd lay down their weapons....


  1. Ok -- I'm game. Bring on the questions.
