March 21, 2018
I really should be in bed right now, but those lovely anxiety spells decided to make their presence felt tonight and I’m wide awake. My eyes are wanting to close, but my mind is spinning and my body is all tense and I’m just one slight mishap from really freaking out big time. I guess I’ll just come in here and catch up on some of my writing stuff instead. I had this “Facebook Q&A” all ready to type up from earlier today, a question and answer piece using some of the more unusual questions that I’ve had asked, usually in one of the Facebook groups to which I belong, from my Facebook timeline. People will talk and ask about absolutely anything. And me, I always answer. Well, not always, but some of the time. And that’s what I’m doing now. So let’s get busy and do this. And away we go…
Describe your dream wedding?
Pretty simple actually. Just myself, the man I’m marrying (whoever that may end up being), my best friend / brother as my best man and surrounded by friends and family. I’m not all fancy and in the back yard of the house or at the college works fine for me. No formal attire. Jeans and t-shirts are welcome. Just laughs, smiles and lots of love in a single, strong defining moment. Who the hell am I kidding though? I haven’t been married yet and it’s not going to happen. I’ll always be alone with just my cat and a few special friends. Damn, that was a depressing answer. Unfortunately true as well though. Oh vey!
Should the legal gun age be raised to 21?
Nope. Not unless the age for smoking, voting, getting married, enlisting into the military and being legally recognized as an adult are also raised to twenty-one. If we’re going to strip a large part of our population of their constitutionally granted rights, don’t pick and choose which ones. It’s all or nothing or else leave them alone.
Who was the best “Big Bad” from Buffy the Vampire Slayer?
Definitely the lovely Drusilla, played by the incredible Juliet Landau. She was amazing and so evil, yet so sympathetic as well. I always enjoyed it when she made an appearance.
For wrestling podcasts, it’s either Bruce Pritchard’s, Jim Cornette’s or the Edge & Christian show. Oh yeah, and Chris Jericho’s too. And for podcasts about other stuff, it’s either SMF Cyberspace (available on YouTube) or the Drunken Fools (available on SoundCloud).
If you could ban an expression or phrase, it would be what?
I think the beloved local greeting, “Let me hold something”, ranks right up there at the top of the list. And also the always funny pun we hear at work at least ten times a day, “Working hard or hardly working?”. It’s not funny the first time or the hundredth. Just saying.
Did Donald Trump really collude with Russia to win the Presidential election of 2016?
Nope. The Democrats just ran a very poor and bad candidate.
If you could join the cast of any television show, playing yourself, what show would you be on?
I think I would make a nice addition to the cast of “Will & Grace” in a supporting role as the poor, anti-social neighbor who happens to be gay, but supports Trump, is largely conservative and doesn’t give a damn about gay culture or stereotypes. I’m kind of the Anti-Christ for homos everywhere, but still likable and a good and loyal friend. It’d add an interesting dynamic to the show to be sure.
Is love at first sight real?
Nope, that’s just lust. Love comes a little later on once you get to know the other person.
Describe your best friend?
He’s wild and mean, creating a scene, gone crazy. He’s good and he’s bad, happy and sad and he’s lazy. Quiet and loud, gathering a crowd and he likes gravy. Slightly half off the wall and I blame it all on the navy. (Lyrics to “Pick Up The Tempo” belong to Waylon and Willie). And my best friend, he’s all of that, none of that, awesome as hell and the Jay to my Silent Bob. I wouldn’t trade him for anything. ‘Nuff said!
And there you go. That’s the end of this. I still want to sleep, but also want to go drive my car into a passenger train. I’m stressing here folks. I guess I’ll crank up the music and go do some laundry. I may not get any sleep tonight, but I’ll have clean clothes. Thanks for reading. Questions and comments are welcome and appreciated. Let me know what you think about this, that and everything. Have a great night and take care.
