I asked for it.

The Victriolic Monkey tagged me for this meme after I begged for it. I was feeling all left out of the blogosphere, you see.

1. What were three of the stupidest things you have done in your life?
a. Volunteered for this meme.
b. Hit that cop car.
c. You think I'm gonna tell you?

2. At the current moment, who has the most influence in your life?
My significant other, Scott. In fact, I am thinking about making a webpage called "The Stupid Things My Boyfriend Has Said."

3. If you were given a time machine that functioned, and you were allowed to pick up to five people to dine with, who would you pick?
a. Dorothy Parker
b. Winston Churchill
c. Freud (I'd pin him to the wall for changing his mind about childhood sexual abuse when It occured to him that he had symptoms himself to indicate that he'd been abused by his father.)
d. Mark Twain
e. Ben Franklin
Of course, with these folks, I'd need more than just a dinner--perhaps a long weekend? I was going to throw in someone not-so-bright to mix it up a little, but then I realized--that would be me.

4. If you had three wishes that were not supernatural, what would they be?
a. Health insurance (damn, I'm old)
b. Money to start up The Breakdown again. (A Hattiesburg arts/entertainment magazine that ran for a short period several years ago.)
c. Peace on earth. Or at least between my two warring kitties.

5. Someone is visiting your hometown/place where you live at the moment. Name two things you regret your city not having, and two things people should avoid.
Two things I wish Hattiesburg had:
a. Better public transportation
b. A Lemuria or Powell's-type independent bookstore.

Two things to avoid:
a. The Hattiesburg American. I hate to say this. I like newspapers and I read the American on a regular basis. But it is such a disappointing paper. It is a Gannet operation, and is weak on real local coverage. Even big Hattiesburg stories are taken straight off the AP Wire. Local entertainment is slighted for events occuring in New Orleans or at Coast casinos. I don't hate the American--I have friends who work there and care greatly about Hattiesburg--but I think the town deserves better.
b. Hardy Street. Buffets on Sunday after church. IHOP at 3 am. Ooops, I'll stop cheating now.

6. Name one event that has changed your life.
I'm supposed to get all deep here, huh?

7. Tag 5 people.
Shoot. Almost all the bloggers I "know" have been tagged already. I'm a newbie. But, Walley, ball's in your court. And Matt, you, too. Oh, and how about you, Left-Handed Leftist?? Ian, I see you ducking behind the furniture over there. . . .
