5 Questions (X2)
Halloween Stuff, Nipples & Dream House
October 26, 2018
I used to call this Facebook Q&A, mainly because the questions come from the pages of Facebook. And then I decided to cut it in half and call it “5 Questions” because this is where I answer those questions, 5 at a time. But guess what? The questions are piling up and I have a huge backlog of questions built up and waiting to be answered. This is unacceptable. So I have a choice to make. Do I answer these questions, five at a time and clutter up everyone’s Twitter and Facebook feeds again and again or should I do a double-sized edition and knock out ten questions in one shot. I choose the latter. So it’s “5 Questions (X2)”. And as per the usual, the questions are, as I’ve already explained, from the world of Facebook. And the answers, that’s all me. Let’s do this…
Do you have any Halloween traditions?
I used to fix the yard up with bodies in the trees, graves dug in the yard, weird music and lights, but that’s been a while ago. Last year, I tagged along as my BFF took his son trick or treating and that was pretty cool. If I don’t do that, my tradition now is to turn off the lights, lock the doors, close the window blinds and write / sleep / watch TV. I’d love to do the decorating again, but that’s probably not going to happen. The hiding away from everyone though? That’s the most likely tradition I’ll continue this year.
What were your favorite costumes that you wore as a kid?
I did Daniel Boone one time, complete with jacket with fringes, toy rifle and coonskin cap. That was probably one of my favorites when I was little.
Best candy to give trick or treaters?
Baby Snickers, Baby Babe Ruth’s and Baby Butterfingers. Better though to keep them for myself lol.
Favorite “monster” and why?
Dracula. As for why, he’s freakin’ Dracula, the “King of the Vampires”. What more reason do you need?
Favorite Halloween movie?
The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I get that technically, it might not be a true “Halloween Movie”, but who cares, It has great costumes, great music, strange characters and fits the Halloween movie genre as well as any other movie, but it’s better than the rest of them. So there you go.
What are your thoughts on Nipple Piercings?
I love nippes and piercings are pretty cool to look at, but I don’t really care for them much in a practical sort of way. That metallic taste in your mouth while you’re trying to do moobie-play just kills the mood. So get them if you like and look like a sexy beast, but when I come over to play, take them off before things get too heated. Please!
Best memories of a dirt road?
I’ve got so many great memories of parties and activities taking place on a dirt road, with so many different people. The best memory? I can’t pick just one, but I’ll go with one where a lovely group of folks we call “The Stoney Crew” and myself went to a place called The Grass Fields and yes, it’s the ones out in Hasty. Nothing special, but just another night, but we had a fire going, people drinking and smoking, etc. It was just a good night and for this crew and all of us, just another typical night. Everyone got along well and we had fun, a group of many people of all races, sexes, religions, etc. We didn’t care about the differences, but just to be together, be friends and have fun. And many of these gatherings happened on dirt roads all over Scotland County. I’m thinking about Hasty now, but it could have been at The Boardwalk, the Motor Cross, the Cable Crossings, Death House or anywhere really.
Thoughts on the Netflix cancellation of Luke Cage?
I don’t get it or understand what Netflix is doing. First Iron Fist and then a week later, Luke Cage? The shows are getting better and better and I thought, doing well with viewers. Now I’m worried, not so much about Daredevil, but Jessica Jones and The Punisher. If the Heroes For Hire can’t survive, what kind of chance do Jones and Castle have.
What are three must-have’s for your dream home?
A big kitchen with lots of counter space, a large bathroom with one of those fancy showers that shoots water from all directions and a basement.
What would you do if you won the lottery?
Pay off bills, get a lawyer and accountant, look after a few very special people, help out a couple of charities that are important to me and vanish from public life, with the exception of my blog site of course, and become an urban legend, kind of like Butt Naked Man, but I won’t mess with the trucker’s wives. And make history bay-bey!
And there you go. It’s rushed, it’s off the wall, it might not make sense, etc. But it’s finished. Thanks for reading. Thoughts, comments and any questions welcome and appreciated. And now, time to go do some other stuff. I have a list of super-hero / comic book movies to ponder on and I will. Until the next time, take care and have a great one. Stay cool.
