Tricky Questions

I stole this meme from The Badger. Who stole it from someone else, so the stealing is OK.

1. You can press a button that will make any one person explode. Who would you blow up?
Paris Hilton

2. You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out of existence. Which one will it be?
The Wiggles. As a preventive measure.

3. Who would you really like to just punch in the face?
Conrad Burns. He is making a mockery out of my home state, and it saddens me.

4. What is your favorite cheese?
Cambozola (since smoked squeeze cheese doesn't count as actual cheese)

5. You can only have one kind of sandwich. Every sandwich ingredient known to humankind is at your immediate disposal. What kind will you make?
Tuna salad with capers and red onions and celery, swiss cheese, toasted on light rye. I might even cheat and just go get the one they make at Grand Central Baking, along with yogurt and green onion Kettle Chips and a triple chocolate cookie.

6. You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie celebrity of your choice. We are talking no-strings-attached sex and it can only happen once. Who is the lucky celebrity of your choice?
If this meme gets around, I have the feeling I'm going to have to stand in line, but there's really no choice for me but Johnny Depp. After he has showered.

7. You have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your choice. Who do you pick?
Michael Hutchence (see #25)

8. Now that you've slept with two different people in a row, you seem to be having an excellent day because you just came across a hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy crap, a hundred bucks! How are you gonna spend it?
Books. And more books. And maybe a purse if I have enough left over.

9. You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go?
Let's pretend I'm not pregnant for a moment, since a long-haul flight wouldn't be much fun right now.

10. Upon arrival to the aforementioned location, you get off the plane and discover another hundred-dollar bill. Now that you are in the new location, what are you gonna do?
Go to a beachside bar, order expensive umbrella cocktails (see? still not pregnant on this trip), crab wonton appetizers, and loads of grilled fresh fish.

11. A demon rises out of Hell and offers you a lifetime supply of the alcoholic beverage of your choice. It is...?

12. Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and what are you going to do when you get there?
The early 1980s. I'll go straight to Madison Square Garden and watch Michael Jackson perform live before he got so frightening.

13. You discover a beautiful island upon which you may build your own society. You make the rules. What is the first rule you put into place?
Hurley isn't in charge of the food supply.

14. You have been given the opportunity to create the half-hour TV show of your own design. What is it called and what's the premise?
Blythe's personal questions. I get to eat dinner with the celebrity of my choice, and s/he must answer all of the questions I ask. It's OK with me if they don't give permission for the show to air - I just want the answers.

15. What is your favorite curse word?
Goddammnit (emphasis on the middle syllable, just like my dad says it)

16. One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren't really doing anything, they're just standing around your bed. What do you do?
Turn off the light, close my eyes, and hope they go away.

17. Your house is on fire! You have just enough time to run in there and grab ONE inanimate object. Don't worry, your loved ones and pets have already made it out safely. So what's the item?
The computer. It's boring, but it houses my thesis. (Yes, I've made a backup copy, but still.)

18. The Angel of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. Whatcha gonna do in that half-hour?
Eat a bunch of chocolate. (Oh, come on, this is a family blog.)

19. You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What's it gonna be?
Telekinesis, because I love to be in different places but I hate wasting time sitting in cars and planes.

20. You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you like to experience again?
Summer camp dance, 1988. Uncomfortable yet thrilling. And I loved my outfit and my hair.

21. You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?
Mean girls (including me) from junior high school

22. You got kicked out of the country for being a time-traveling heathen who sleeps with celebrities and has super-powers. But check out this cool stuff... you can move to anywhere else in the world! Bitchin'! What country are you going to live in now?
England. Specifically, a parkside flat in London.

23. This question still counts, even for those of you who are under age. You have been eternally banned from every single bar in the world except for ONE. Which one is it gonna be?
Southpark bar in Portland, for the delicious sangria and fantastic bar menu. And they always play the Gipsy Kings.

24. Hopefully you didn't mention this in the super-powers question.... If you did, then we'll just expand on that. Check it out... Suddenly, you have gained the ability to FLOAT!!! Whose house are you going to float to first, and be like "Dude, check it out... I can FLOAT!"?
I would float to see my nephews or my niece - they would think it's awesome.

25. The constant absorption of magical moonbeams mixed with the radioactive vegetables you consumed earlier has given you the ability to resurrect the dead famous-person of your choice. So which celebrity will you bring back to life?
Princess Diana. Because she deserves to see her handsome sons, and because it would really freak out Camilla. Or else Michael Hutchence.

26. The Gates of Hell have opened, and Death appears. As it turns out, Death is actually a pretty cool entity, and happens to be in a fantastic mood. Death offers to return the friend/family-member/person, etc. of your choice to the living world. Who will you bring back?
Any of my grandparents

27. What's your theme song?
Today, it's In the Waiting Line by Zero 7.
