I've been tagged again!

This time by Mz. Smlph. I gather the idea of this meme is to choose 5 of the questions below and answer them and then pass this on to 3 more bloggers. I think I will just pass this along to whomever wants to do it (less pressure that way).

Anywho, here are the questions:

If I could be a scientist...If I could be a farmer...If I could be a musician...If I could be a doctor...If I could be a painter...If I could be a gardener...If I could be a missionary...If I could be a chef...If I could be an architect...If I could be a linguist...If I could be a psychologist...If I could be a librarian...If I could be an athlete...If I could be a lawyer...If I could be an inn-keeper...If I could be a professor...If I could be a writer...If I could be a llama-rider...If I could be a bonnie pirate...If I could be an astronaut...If I could be a world famous blogger...If I could be a justice on any one court in the world...If I could be married to any current famous political figure...

Though I would like to point out that none of the preceding sentences are, in fact, questions but I will play along.

If I could be an athlete... I would like to be a caber tosser. They're cool.

If I could be a writer...hey?! I am a writer, dude. Though I suppose it would be very cool if I could pay my bills by being a full-time writer.

If I could be a world famous blogger... once again, I think I already am a world famous blogger. Well, not really, but if I were that would be cool because people would invite me to conferences and I would go and talk about myself. Heck, people might even be interested.

If I could be a justice on any one court in the world... I'd want to be on the US Supreme Court because you get appointed for life. No matter what you do they still have to pay you! That'd be awesome. Plus I would be able to wear that robe.. and nothing else.

If I could be a bonnie pirate... I'd be up to my eyes in booty, if you know what I mean.


The THIRD Blankbaby Contest

That's right, kiddies! Blankbaby is closing in on 3000 comments (and 100,000 hits), so you know what that means, a contest!

The person who posts the 3000th comment wins, and the rules are the same, however I will list them again:

1. It can't be me.

2. If you try and stuff the comments, I will just delete them (but you are all too good for that).

3. If you win, and you live in Philadelphia, you must agree to have a picture taken with me handing you your prize. The picture will then be placed on the blog. If you don't live in Philadelphia you must send me a picture of you so I can 'photoshop' it into a picture of me handing you your prize in some exotic locale.

4. Previous contest winners are eligible, but one person can not win more than two Blankbaby contests in a row.

Rule 4 means that Jessika (even though she never collected her prize) can't win, but Becky can! Aren't contests fun?

And remember, the most important aspect of this contest is that the prize is going to be mildly disappointing.


Whereupon I expound on the fact that I am not, in fact, your 'hollaback girl'

Let me assure you, kind, gentle, readers. I am not now, nor have I never been, your (or anyone else's) 'Hollaback Girl.'

There is one caveat that I feel I must share with you, since I am not entirely sure what a 'hollaback girl' is, I could in fact be one myself. However, given the fact that I am entirely lacking a vagina, I think it is safe to assume that you may have mistaken me for your real 'hollaback girl.'


Revenge of the Review

sith.gif

People have been demanding it (mostly Julie and Frat Boy 'A'), and finally I will publish my Revenge of the Sith review!

Here it is in bullet list format:

  • Acting: wooden
  • Dialogue: Horrible
  • Special effects: incredible
  • action: non-stop
  • Yoda: Ass, kick he does
  • Darth: Frickin' Vader!

I went into the theater not expecting much, and I left heartily entertained. I would rank 'Sith' ahead of 'Jedi' on my list of Star War movies I like.  It would look thusly:

  • Empire Strikes Back

  • New Hope

  • Revenge of the Sith

  • Return of the Jedi

  • Attack of the Clones

  • The Phantom Menace

Would I see it again in the theaters?  Yes, there is just so much going on in each scene that it would benefit from a second viewing. I would want to see it in digital projection and in a theater that is equipped with THX, sadly PA seems to be the land of crappy movie theaters, so that may not happen.


And some people wonder why I'm single

So, I got a haircut today and I thought I would take a picture and show it to you, my dear readers, because I know you like that sorta thing.

I readied the digital camera, and then I thought, 'Why not look sexy in these pictures?'

I took several pictures, and I must warn you, that when you see them you will wonder no more why I am single. If this is the best that I can do I am doomed to a live of taking pictures of my self and posting them to Blankbaby.

What follows are the four 'best' pictures that I took.

Don't say I didn't warn you!

Hug and release, people!

wlvr_scotty_and_chris_b&w_small.jpgWhilst I was in college Chris, a good friend and housemate at the time, was seeing a girl who he met because she listened to our radio show (long story). She was a very nice girl, but she didn't follow 'Scott's Rules of Hugging.' If I have known you for awhile you can feel free to hug me with impunity. However, if I haven't known you long and you insist on hugging me you MUST hug and release. A quick hug and then we both go our separate ways. Is that so wrong?

Well, Wendy wouldn't have any of it. She would back me into a corner and hug me uncomfortably long. Perhaps my first misstep was sharing with her my rules of hugging (which I just shared with you all, so no doubt someone who reads this is going to try and hug me for a little TOO long).

Wendy also, incidentally, took the picture that graces this post.

Anyway, it looks like I am going to have to evade more and more hug since hugs are the new handshakes:

Men accustomed to the automatic and dependable hand clasp accompanied with a brisk up-and-down pump at dinner parties and college reunions, now must preface their greetings or goodbyes with intricate and split-second calculations based on body language, length of friendship and other factors. Do I shake or do I hug? Making the right choice matters. If one guy goes for the hug, but the other decides upon a handshake, they might collide. An excruciating dance will follow, as the poor lads work feverishly to determine what to do with their hands, their arms, their bodies.

Life just got a little more complicated. Can't we all just stand at a respectful distance and nod to one another? Would that be too difficult?


A girl wants to see Star Wars?!

According to the Craigslist Philly posting called Want to see Star Wars? - w4m, she does. Granted she wants someone to pay for her as well, but hey she's a chick and she wants to see Star Wars:

Okay, I am posting this in strictly platonic, because I don’t want anyone thinking I am likely to sleep with them for taking me to see the movie.

However, I am totally broke this week, and I want to see this movie, so I thought I would solicit for a date.

Age/Race/Appearance doesn’t really matter, because it’s just a movie, I am not looking for a sole mate here.

I am Female, white, 25, live in Center City…

If anyone want to go see it, but doesn’t want to go alone, drop me a line…

And she isn't looking for a shoe mate.

Before anyone suggests that I answer this posting, I'm not interested thank you very much.


The Musical Baton

This has been going around the 'blogosphere' like wild fire (I love tortured uses of cliches), and now Emily has passed it to me (see her's here).

Here I go:

Total size of music files on my computer:

4060 songs, 8.9 days worth of sound, 15.75 Gigs of space. It is also all on my iPod.

The last CD I bought was:

Songs for Silverman by Ben Folds.

Song playing right now in iTunes:

Whistling in the Dark by They Might Be Giants

Five Songs I listen to a lot, or mean a lot to me:

I'll just pick the top 5 most played songs in iTunes, which are:

Common People by William Shatner off of Has Been (listened to 35 times)

Houston by Dean Martin off of His Greatest Hits (30 times)

Tainted Love by Max Raabe off of Super Hits Number 2 (27 times)

Stalk of Wheat by They Might Be Giants off of The Spine (26 times)

Murdered Love by XTC off of Apple Venus Volume 2 (26 times)

Now I have to pass this off to 5 other people, so let's make it a Philly blog thing:

Becky of Good Grief! (because she hates these things)

Mark of The Long Cut (because he is into these things)

Karl of paraox1x (because he has some interesting musical tastes)

Star of Sarcasmo's Corner (because I have to watch Funny Girl because of her)

Josh of SkaroffBlog (because he is the new kid on the block and this might be his very first meme!)


Soda no more!

I have just decided that I am in danger of slipping back into my soda abusing days, so I am swearing off the stuff again!

No soda for me at all.

I hereby declare if you see me drinking soda of any kind I give you permission to kick me in the shin and spit in said soda.
