    Since we're on the topic of Long Wong's, what is your go-to menu item at that fine establishment?
    Alas, the Tempe Long Wong's is no more. Been replaced by an office building. It closed down about 4-5 years ago. I definitely miss it.

    Food-wise, they had outstanding burgers and sandwiches. However, the best thing on the menu by far was the wings. They were perfect. Nice and hot, without sacrificing the flavor. Delic.

    Well, I would definitely say my Wife and Son, but those are pretty obvious. So, I will come up with some others.

    I would definitely need music. I have had a love affair with music all my life. Without it, I am truly not complete.

    I would need my space, and time to myself. I am an only child, and those of you who are only children know that as much as we enjoy the social aspects of life, we definitely need our alone time.

    A home. Doesn't matter how big, where is at, or any of that. Just a place to call home.

    I am also thankful for having all of those things. Others would be good family and friends (past and present), good wine, my dogs (past and present), and my health.

    Sean, everyone needs alone time, not just only children. (and especially introverts)

    hey Sean. I've skimmed these pages just now and didn't see (and don't recall anyone asking) you: what do you do for a living? what is your career path, professional trajectory, social ascendency, all that crap?

    lol

    Well, it is harder to get away when you have kids, etc.

    For example, I love to read. Problem is when I read, I cannot have any distractions. TV, music, people talking, etc. So, I need to be alone to read.

    Retirement I would love to travel. As much as I could. Here in the US, and around the world. I would like to have a home in the Pacific Northwest.

    Right now, I am in Sales. I sell computers, software, and services to business. Mostly, on the east coast.

    My career path is still up in the air, as I did not originally intend to work for a corporation. I went to school to be a teacher. After seeing how corrupt, and ass backwards the AZ system is, I got out of it. I then tried to follow my "dream" of being a musician full time. I gave it a good run, but fell a bit short.

    So, ultimately I plan on staying in this industry. I like sales, and I am good at it. Have no interest in management at this time. That's a death sentence, in my opinion. Long term, I would like to run my own business, or get involved with sports, or music related marketing.

    I am the same way when it comes to reading. It requires full concentration. And yes, with kids you don't even get to pee without someone knocking on the door (if they knock) or yelling through the door to carry on a conversation that could have been had before the bathroom door closed.

    So what was the first book you read as a child that grabbed your attention to make you enjoy reading so much?

    Stuart Little. Definitely. I even remember going to the library with my Mom to get it.

    Who is the one person coming to Thanksgiving dinner at your place that is the most entertaining and why? Do you have any "crazy/weird family" that will be attending? What makes them the crazy ones?

    I don't want to work so I am going to be asking alot of questions today.

    Maybe abortion talk wasn't a good way of phrasing it but the OMG What do we do about this? talk is really the same thing.

    Oh, there is plenty of weirdness. Wouldn't have it any other way.

    THere are 4 sisters that are at the heart of the family that is coming over. They are currently all at odds, and one of them has refused to attend. The oldeset is mad a the youngest (they are all 40+), and the middle sister that is attending has been trying to be the peacemaker over the last month or so.
    I think they will be on their best behavior, but you never know when the wine starts flowing.

    A verbal fight that almost came to blows, right after the blessing at Thanksgiving. It was between one of my cousin's husbands, and another cousin's boyfriend. Alcohol was absolutely involved. Without a doubt, the most "uncomfortable" Thanksgiving ever. I wanted to eat quick, and get the Hell out of there.

    Sean, I haven't read through all of this thread, so please excuse me if this has already been asked. But:

    1) As a musician, what is the song by another artist that you most enjoy playing or would most like to learn to cover?

    2) In your opinion, why do the ladies go so crazy over musicians?

    Those are new questions!

    1. I really enjoy singing Last Goodbye, by Jeff Buckley. He had such an amazing voice, and sang with amazing feel and control. Plus, the arrangement of the song is very unique.

    2. I've actually asked this question to a number of girls. I've gotten a few different answers, but the most common response is something along the lines of seeing a performer play/sing with passion, and wanting to be the source of that passion. One girl said to me after a show, " I know you can play guitar. I wonder how you would play me?". Ahh, the good life of musician!

    Hahaha, that is lame and funny combined. What was your response?

    Did you feel like Mark Wahlberg's character in the movie "Rock Star".

    Thanks for answering my questions. I like Last Goodbye too. And yeah I agree that girl's pickup line is a little embarrassing. But then again, most "pickup lines" are. Also I just read through the last 10 pages or so of the thread. I can't believe I missed Corinna's week! Unacceptable.

    Sean, if you could be born with a prominent birthmark in the shape of a continent on your face, which continent would it be?

    Sean, which Coachella board member do you imagine (or know) to be the most different in person?

    Sean, do you remember any of your teachers from elementary school?

    Sean, you have been appointed the new editor in chief of a major newspaper. In addition to the normal stuff (business, sports, arts, etc), which new section do you choose to create and who do you hire to write it?
