« The Victory Coaltion Brings You: Ask a Blogger Monday! | Main | Questions, Questions #1 »

Ask me, ask me, ask me*

I have three takers on the matching funds for Ask a Blogger day! One of my favorite commenters, Spd Rdr has matched the hundred. Another of my favorite people, Brian, has vowed to match the hundred and go up to 150. And the beloved Captain of the Victory Coalition has matched my hundred as well. That's $450 for Spirit of America IF I get one hundred questions asked of me today. Please see the post below for details and get asking (and linking). *So, if there's something you'd like to try If there's something you'd like to try ASK ME - I WON'T SAY "NO" - HOW COULD I ? I should mention that the questions will be answered five at a time, so I don't have one hundred separate posts sitting here, unless I determine that a question warrants it's own novella-size post. Come on, people. I want at least one hundred questions here by NOON! I went all out and put on enemy clothing last night - all you have to do is ask ONE questions. Just one. Doesn't cost you anything but the workout of a few brain cells. Update: Lesley, a Yankee fan! - has matched and exceeded with $200. JFH, who has already donated a generous amount - chimes in with another $50!

» How can you *not* want to help the Marines? from Welcome to Castle Argghhh! The Home Of One Of Jonah's Military Guys.
I mean, not only are they this inventive - they have a chain of command that let's them do it, unlike the admittedly stodgy wimps who run the Army. And I say that when I were one! Besides, who wants... [Read More]

» Do you hear a mouse? from Welcome to Castle Argghhh! The Home Of One Of Jonah's Military Guys.
Someone slid this under the door at Castle Argghhh! and scampered away on tiny little feet. Good thing, too. Little Girl's peeved (see post below). Even as we speak, she walking around humming: "Loves to eat them mousies, Mousies what... [Read More]

Okay, here's one: what did you throw at your tv yesterday when the Red Sox swept the Yankees home series, and what were you shouting as you threw it? (Is that two?)

Before you go to victory, you must answer me these questions three:

What is your name?

What is your favorite color?

What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen sparrow?

Boxers or briefs?

If nominated, will you run?

If elected, will you serve?

Do you write "perfect" posts in your head while doing other menial tasks (like laundry, running errands), then get pissed off when you finally get to the computer and can't remember the perfect way you worded a statement in your head earlier?

And as a followup, how many times a day do you wish you had a tape recorder to record these thoughts for later?

What's your bra size? (damned Bosox picture)

Who is the one celebrity that you would love to meet? And Why? (does that count as 2?) (Hah! that's 3!)

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? (other than your new house)

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Bo and Hope or Luke and Laura?
Stuffing or mashed potatoes?

Ok, how about a serious one -

This August will mark the 30th anniversary of the first time a certain band played their first show in good old NYC. The band is one of the most influential bands ever, although not many realize it. People like Bruce Springsteen and U2 attribute their success directly to them (Bruce's first top 10 hit was actually written for them, and U2 covered several of their songs to get their first recording contract because they had yet to write their own). Who are they?

What would you eat for your last meal?

What were you thinking of when DJ was conceived?

Can you justify your existence?

Do you use coupons?

What was the last thing you remember before you were born?

Did your mother prefer the left or right nipple when you were a nursing infant?

Did you prefer the left or right nipple when you were nursing your children?

What was on tv during your last 2 am feeding?

Name your first munchkin character.

Ever think that Munchkin (Steve Jackson Games was how D&DŽ should be played?

Does DJ have a crush?

Name him.

Have you ever had the urge to cat blog?

If you ever had the chance to fundamentally change a world religion, which religion would it be, and what would the change be?

If you got an Instalanche that cost you $200.00 in bandwidth would you bill Glenn Reynolds for the expense?

If you had the chance to give Yassir Arafat an STD, which STD would it be?

Is it proper to remain kosher when pigs are starving to death?

Is this the strangest set of questions you ever had to answer?

You have one boy and one girl. Which one has been/is easier to raise and why?


How do you blog from work without (a) getting in trouble and (b) getting even deeper in work? I get (a) and (b) just from reading!

How do you blog from home and get anything done at all? Even at several hundred wpm, it's a lot of input. Add editing time into that, and I'd be up till 4 AM every night.

Did you ever quit smoking?

Ever wish you could go back to the days when there wasn't so much pressure on you in regards to blog content?

Do you think your writing style would be different if ASV was an Insignificant Microbe, and not the Higher Being it is today?

When you first started out writing your blog, as I just did, how did you get people to read it? How long did it take to build up a regular audience?

1. Why do you bother when we OWN you?

2. Does it annoy you (or your readers) that you're being outraised by a bunch of troglodytic milbloggers?

3. Do you have so many Liberal Cheapskate Readers that you can't outraise us?

4. Is it true that your Liberal Cheapskate Readers only like fundraising when it's forcibly taking it via the long arm of the state and redistributing it to their favored groups - instead of freely giving their own dough?

5. Did you lose a cup size when you donned the BoSox cap (the female equivalent of shriveled testes...)?

6. Does it shame you that both our Coalitions resorted to rack pictures because of that damned dirty Queen Of All Evil?

7. What do you think the male equivalent of rack pictures is going to be (in case we all get really sick with desperation)?

8. Is it true that Kevin is really Hillary's Boytoy? (we have pictures)

9. Being Dead, does Lenore smell? If so, she should visit Ghost of A Flea and bid on the cologne!

10. What is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything?

There - I've done my bit to help your pathetic campaign along. I'm tired of being so alone and far ahead. Catch up, willya? I mean - you're bigger'n Drudge, right? 8^)

How can I aspire to be a great as you?

If you were responsible for picking any person to be pres. of America, who would it be, and why? (excluding yourself, and anyone running for the presidency)

Here's another question or two, to make the 100.

Which hockey team do you support (or do you ignore hockey altogether)?

If you could add or remove an Olympic event, which would you change?

Which of the Endless would you be - why?

Do you think Dream or Death is sexier?

Will the Death movie suck or rock?

Did Dream have to die?

Have you read the Thessaly spin off 4 book series - do you like it?

What's your favorite Sandman story?

Since you didn't like my previous questions...

What is your favorite MTX album?

Dark Lord of Aaaaargh! (Fusileer 6)

Did you donate $100.00 for your laundry list o'questions? (Or were you just taunting Lady Michele again?) If you did not donate, then we just did for you (via the Victory Coalition, snicker:)).

So I thought (or one of the 9 voices I seem to hear thought) that I might take a stab (with a evil dagger) at answering your question about the Cute Little Dead Girl. You asked:

"9. Being Dead, does Lenore smell? If so, she should visit Ghost of A Flea and bid on the cologne!"

So far as I have read in my extensive collection of stories about Lenore, she has only had problems with smelling like a corpse two times (when she was "feeling doody" (buy & read the stories to find out how one of the Living Dead like Lenore would be very sicky)) and once when she had been buried for quite a while. Otherwise none of the normal people who meet her seem to have a problem with her smell (or pale grey skin complextion either). Normal living people react to Lenore as if she was a normal living breathing 10 year old girl. Eerie thought that, the lonely little girl "living" in the big house by the cemetary. Perhaps you should invite her to Castle Aaaargh! for a tea party. She might like the spooky old walls.

Oh and here is a challenge (here we beat the shield and blow the trumpet to gain your attention) for you oh dark Lord of Castle Aaaaaargh! Post a picture of Lenore at your Castle of Aaaargh! and we will donate another $100.00 to the Victory Coalition in your name. That way you will be showing true chivalry and reverence to both the Ladies in question (Michele and Lenore), you will also be helping the Victory Coalition to catch up with you (that is what you asked for is it not?) and you will be inspiring me (a evil snickering civil servant wannabe remf type) to do a good deed (by parting with some of our ill gotten silver from my GS pay) in your name.

What say you to this parley?

Post Scriptum:
Taunt Michele a second time at your own peril!
We trust that you are a true Dark Knight and not some snivelling taunting fwrenchman throwing cabbages and chamberpots. Do not disappoint us!
(And thanks for the Great work gathering all that loot for SOA! Huzzah!)

Questions (if you need any more)
1. What's your favorite color?
2. What do you want to do with the rest of your life?
3. What do you weigh?
4. What's your favorite meal?

all the best,

I thought of another one:

What's your favorite recipe? (I don't mean just the name, give it to us so we can make it too).

I have a question. Your choice of "it," as if it could be any other way.

Why do you do it?

If you need more...

What is your quest?

What is the capital of Assyria?

Do you have a favorite supervillain?

If yes, who?
