Whoa, apparently, I have no thumbs! I never use them to type so I hadn't even noticed until Tom brought it to light.Quote:
I guess my rule of thumb is, would this embarrass me or hurt someone if it came to light that I was talking about it with people on the internet?
Tom, some people like to relax by working in the garden or call themselves a do-it-yourself type and like fixing projects around the house. We all know you like to cook. Asking my previous unanswered question a different way, what type of productive things do you enjoy? Which ones are you like "no way" and find it best you have someone else take care of?
I'm like Homer Simpson when it comes to home handyman work. I suck at it in a big, huge, awful way. Since I live in Arizona, 'gardening' is a little different here, but I pretty much suck at it too. Car care, home repair, lawn care, all that typical American man stuff, it doesn't interest me, so I suck at it. Or I suck at it, so it doesn't interest me. So yeah, I pay to have others do it for me.
When I saw your were the sucker of the week I thought of a million questions, but now all I got is if you could live forever anywhere where would you go?
If I had an infinite supply of money I would live in Manhattan.
You are my superstar.
If you could change the color of your bedroom what would it be?
What is it now?
I hate school recitals and that stuff. Choir, band, etc etc. I go (& still do - younger daugher plays trombone in the HS band) but if it's one of those poorly organized, late starting, pointlessly dragging on forever things, I might get a little cranky.
I was confused by that as well.
"Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" is a rock song by Neil Young. Combined with its acoustic counterpart "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)", it bookends Young's successful 1979 album Rust Never Sleeps. Inspired by proto-new wave group Devo, the rise of punk and what Young viewed as his own growing irrelevance, the song today crosses generations, inspiring admirers from punk to grunge and significantly revitalizing Young's then-faltering career. The song is about the alternatives of continuing to produce similar music ("to rust" or — in "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)" — "to fade away") or to burn out, as John Lydon of the Sex Pistols might be considered to have done by abandoning his Johnny Rotten persona.
A part of a lyric from the song, "it's better to burn out than to fade away," became infamous in modern rock after being quoted in Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's suicide note. Young later said that he was so shaken that he dedicated his 1994 album Sleeps with Angels to Cobain. Because of Cobain's suicide, in live concerts he now emphasizes the line "once you're gone you can't come back".
Beatles or Elvis?
Yeah so I thought I'd made the Neil Young connection obvious already, Ron.
Do you have any advice on how to get your kids up in the morning? (or is that your wife's work?). I'm actually having a problem with that, and I can't see bribing them every day until they're 18.
Have you tried threats?
Yeah. Bribes seem to work better. Threats just make them damn grumpy.
The phrase “bucket list” has become very popular lately. What would be the antithesis of your bucket list? Of course remember they might be quoted on the board later. Cr***
He's referencing this scene in a movie based on a Nick Hornby novel.
Tom nailed the answer the way it was asked however.
Tom, favorite movie adapted from a novel?
Earlier, you asked me why I seem so cranky. You're providing your own answer.
