Secrets stolen from deep inside...

10 Questions From Jacynth:

Jacynth developed this little beaut. And I'm now jumping on the bandwagon, albeit a little later than most. C'est la vie.

Basically, just answer the questions with as much honesty as you can muster.

1.  If you could live in another era, what would it be?
Victorian England. I know, I know, you just asked for a time, not a place. Well, living in America during the time period of Victorian England does nothing for me. Actually it does as it was the time period with the great Western push and cowboys and whatnot. But this era in England is so completely different. That's why I kinda have to specify a place as well. I've developed a little fascination with the time period. I love the literature from that era, I love the history, I love it all. Plus I want to find out who Jack the Ripper really is.

2.  If you got paid $200 million per year, would you be an Alaskan crab fisher (keep in mind this is one of the deadliest jobs)?
I would do it for a day just so I could have a cool Sebastian Junger-ish story of my own. He's lived such an incredible and enviable life.

3.  Did you eat glue as a child?
Nope. I did like mixing it with hand lotion and spreading it on the back of my hands and letting it dry. The purpose was to scare the bejeezus out of my female classmates who thought I was ripping off my own flesh. Worked like a dream. The lotion made it all stay in one piece instead of shredding in mid peel.

Miscackbar_14.  If you could be in a movie, what would it be and why?
What a tough, yet fascinating question. I feel like Brodie Bruce in Mallrats being asked what comic book character he would prefer to be. I would pick something simple like the deck officer, Major Derlin, in The Empire Strikes Back that was played by John Ratzenberger (Cliff Claven from Cheers). Or maybe Admiral Ackbar, right, in Return of the Jedi. He was pretty cool... "It's a trap!"

5.  If you could set up your own mafia ring, what would you call it?
The Quasi-Corsicans? I don't know.

6.  If you had the choice between meeting David Hasselhoff or Tom Cruise, who would you choose and why?
While I would relish the opportunity to be able to prove to Tom Cruise that Scientology is a cult, I know he wouldn't go for it no matter how much evidence is laid before him. On that note, I pick the D-Hoff. He did drive KITT and worked with Donna D'Errico, right?

7.  Would you ever fly Hooters airlines?
Abso-friggin-lutely! And I know Katie would fly it with me! Wings on wings, baby!

8.  Would you rather hear no evil or see no evil?
I'd rather hear no evil. At least this way I could still watch their lips and make up my own dialogue. That would be fun. Especially with Dubya.

9.  If you started a search engine, what would you name it?
Ask Kap! Sounds like "gas cap" or "asshat," doesn't it?

10.  If you had the ability to see five years into the future, would you do it?
I'm afraid I'd be too disappointed with what's happened to the world to want to know. Five years in the past? Sure! Show everybody what will happen if they re-elect Bush and maybe attempt to thwart 9/11. It kinda makes you wonder how the world would differ today if 9/11 never happened.

Well, you know how it goes. Steal away!

Hooters Airlines is gone. Bye Bye! To bad you will never have the pleasure of being served wingies at 35,000 ft.


I very nearly had the opportunity to fly Hooters, but had to change my plans. I am very sad at having missed my opportunity. :-(

Admiral Ackbar?? Chewbacca is much cooler! :-)


Well you still might have an opportunity to fly Hooters Air. Looks like they will still fly charter flights out of Salem, Nirth Carolina. You will have to be a part of a large group like a sports team or a tour group. You should start playing softball with us again Kevin. Maybe we can get our sponsor to take us on a charter flight on Hooter Air!

ms. sizzle

i am later on this than you- i still have to do mine!

the glue and lotion concoction is very clever. way to be creative. :)

Tracy Lynn

I never ate glue, but I'm pretty sure I tried paste once. I didn't swallow, though. :-)


I am so stealing this one for the weekend. I never ate glue......gagging just thinking of it.


My favorite line in a while: "the purpose was to scare the bejeezus out of my female classmates who thought I was ripping off my own flesh"


MIM, I saw that about the charters. Wonder how I'd book one of those. Oh and if they move softball to Monday or Wednesday, I'm in.

Dave, have you seen Peter Mayhew (the man in the Chewbacca mask)? I'd be afraid of the interior quality of the costume after he wore it. Ackbar has cooler lines.

Sizzle, I was an inventive child.

Tracy, quite reassuring in a purely Clinton-esque sense, thanks!

Mikey, I never understood the appeal. Even as a dumb kid, it seemed inane to me.

Sandra, happy to entertain. Oh, and it worked, too.


Geez, you were an incorrigible kid! How many times did you get detention for the glue-lotion stunt?

This is such a fun meme. Everybody should do this one.

Karl in the Dark

The Alaskan crabbing thing. Hell, even if you did it for just the one day, you'd get $55k at that rate! That's a lot of wings at Hooters.


SJ, never! I think my teachers lauded my inventiveness. Besides, you can only do this so many times before people catch on to it.

Karl, that depresses me more than you may realize.


I used to love the taste of glue. Is there something wrong with that?


Stealing is fun. I'm totally yanking this one (as I have been unable to write all week and people are probably tired of seeing photoshoped pictures of ME on my blog).


Oh good grief, this is so being stolen... As soon as I can come up with something original... er...


Elaine, really? What about it is so tantalizing?

Nicole, yeah, the pics are starting to freak me out a little bit. I'm afraid of what's coming next.

Bec, it is a good one, isn't it? Drop by Jacynth's site and thank her. Maybe she'll write more.


Kevin, that was awesome! I don't think I could fill this thing out now because I just don't know what I'd say that would be remotely witty after having read yours...


Kristina, steal it anyway! No need to compete. Just be honest with your own answers.


I stumbled across your blog while I was in the process of doing some online research. If you're interested in who Jack the Ripper really was, did you read Patricia Cornwall's forensic expose about the case in which she revealed the supposed real killer?


Actually I own the book. But, we'll never know for sure. It's one of those mysteries that will persist until the end of recorded history, I'm afraid. Hence why I'd like to go back and experience it.
