Does anyone else enjoy answering random questions? I most certainly do and here, right now, I’m going to do just that. These questions all come from my Twitter feed and I’m going to take a crack at ten of them, just because I can. Enjoy!

What’s a dumb superpower 🤣.

I remember a character in the Legion of Super-Heroes comic who had the ability to change the colors of items. He was actually part of the Legion of Substitute Heroes and called Color Kid. I always thought that was pretty dumb.

What’s the best professionally filmed concert you can think of?

Alice Cooper Trashes The World. A taping of an Alice Cooper concert from Birmingham, England. Alice was on the top of his game here and even if you weren’t a fan, I think you’d enjoy this show, made to promote the Trash album.

Could you stay in the house for a whole week without stepping outside for $100,000?

Easily. I rarely leave the house as it is except to go to work or to the grocery store to get drinks and cat treats. I don’t like going out. There are far too many people out there and people get on my nerves. A week for $100,000? A piece of cake. Get that money ready.

What is the number one thing you want to achieve as an author?

I write for myself and to keep myself sane so all I can really hope to achieve is that people enjoy some of my stuff, relate in some ways, and maybe it makes life a little easier for others. For me, it’s just cheaper than seeing a therapist.

Should Elon Musk move Twitter out of California?

He should do exactly that and go to either Texas or Florida. There were be a much better deal with the taxes that his company pays, plus it would be a crippling blow to the economy of California, whose Governor is an absolute moron and has done nothing but talk trash about Musk. Musk doesn’t need California, but Newsom and California need Musk. He should move all his companies and tell California that he has two words for them. “Suck It!”.

Is gravy a condiment?

I guess technically, considering how it’s used to pour over other foods and enhance the flavor and eating experience, it could be considered a condiment. But that being said, I’ve never gotten a packet of gravy from the girl working the counter at Mcdonalds’. So while it might be one, I’ll still say no.

What music did your parents listen to when you were growing up?

My Dad liked classical music, jazz, and the big band stuff. My Mom liked Elvis, Bob Segar, Conway, The Captain and Tenille, and Willie Nelson. And I like all of those, plus Alice Cooper & Waylon. We all had eclectic musical tastes.

Do you keep your dry cereal in the refrigerator?

Nope. It goes into the cabinet. Cereal in the fridge just doesn’t sound right.

What first movie or series do you think of when you see Kirstie Alley?

Cheers of course, and then Look Who’s Talking. I’m sure that she did some other stuff as well, but those are the main two things I remember seeing her in and learning her from the most.

The governor of Texas just banned TikTok on all state-issued devices.
Shouldn’t he have banned assault rifles before TikTok?

State-issued devices are for business so why would TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media outlets be there in the first place? Those are for personal use, not government business. And as for the comment about assault rifles, Governor Abbott doesn’t have the authority thanks to two things. One is common sense because he realizes that trying to ban guns is government overreach and stupid. And the second thing is that pesky Constitution and the Second Amendment. Gun owners have rights too.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, or any questions about anything are welcome and appreciated. And with that, I’m out of here for now. I have to go fold towels. I’ll see you on the next go-around. Take care and be well. Love you – mean it!
