these go to 11…meme

January 13, 2008

There’s a new meme in town, created by Kim Coles of I’m with Sully fame. The very talented and versatile artist Laurel Gaylord Studio Lolo tagged me for this meme. Being tagged is a huge step in my last-kid-to-be-picked-for-the-team recovery (thank you Junior High P.E.) So in that spirit, here goes nothing!
Here are the questions and my answers.
1. Voted most likely to:

Require surgery to remove foot from mouth.

2. Regrets:

I regret not having done many things I was afraid I’d regret doing.

3. It’s a Monday, you’re tired and don’t feel like working, so you:

Contemplate calling in sick. Go to work. Promise myself a treat if I make it through the day. Go to sleep. Wake up. Start process over again on Tuesday morning.

4. You would prefer to have dinner with:

My husband Tom, standing in the kitchen, eating cereal over the sink, with a shot of Jameson, yammering about politics.

5. If you were going bald, you would:

Use spray-on hair for the first month. Eventually opting to shave my head. I’d probably then get a few piercings and some ink in an effort to make shaved head look like a statement and not the clever rouse it really is.

6. You lay awake at night, pondering:

What my strategy would be if I went bald.

7. If you were forced to share a cubicle, the most important thing you’d look for is:

Someone who doesn’t chew gum with their mouth open.

Or earphones.

8. What is most likely to be found in the trunk of your car?

The laser ink cartridge I’ve been meaning to recycle for 8 years.

9. Favorite ‘Spinal Tap’ moment: 

It’s hard to pick a favorite moment, there were so many, but this one is definitely up there. Hee heeeee!

Asked by a reporter if this is the end of Spinal Tap

David St. Hubbins: Well, I don’t really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It’s like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how – what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what’s stopping it, and what’s behind what’s stopping it? So, what’s the end, you know, is my question to you.

10. Based on your work history, the job you SHOULD HAVE right now is:

Doodler

11. Your imaginary band name is:

The Miscreants

So now is the time to tag three other unsuspecting bloggers.

Tom Gapen at Visual Kaos

Helena C. Rådström at The Empress’ New Clothes

Froggy at Oh Thank Goodness it’s Friday

No pressure guys. Just thought it would be fun to hear your answers.

Thanks for indulging me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go figure out whether or not to call in sick tomorrow.

    Oh man, not on a Monday morning, Linda… Oh no! I’m melting, like a Salvador Dali’s timepiece, melting, melting back into my soft and fluffy bed… zzzZZZ….

    🙂 Alright, alright, I’ll do it! Just because you asked. But please allow me some good amount of time… I’ll be at the Prancing Pony to get over last night’s hangover, then I have to go and collect my head. If I can count my fingers and toes, then I’ll do your “11”, ‘kay? 🙂 Splendid!

    3. It’s a Monday, you’re tired and don’t feel like working, so you:

    One 44MB Syquest drive, one VHS copy of ‘The Little Mermaid,’ one empty case of vanilla extract and misc. ninja throwing stars.
