I decided to use the category thingamajig, so now all the questions are in one happy place.
Christine asks, via email:
16. People often mistake stupidity for bravery. Have you ever done anythign that would fit into that category?
Why, yes I have Christine. And it was recorded right here on this very site for posterity.
Then the frat boy in the passenger seat speaks. To me, no less. He looks at me and says, smirking "Maybe if these people kept their tards at home we wouldn't have to sit here in freaking traffic, ya know?" He looks at me as if he expects an agreement. I am stunned. I am horrified

While we are digging around the archives, Charles
wants to know (#17)what my favorite MTX album is.
bq. This particular CD alone (Revenge is Sweet
, that is), is at once so sad and so happy that you don't exactly know what you feel when you hear the songs, all you know is that you do laugh or grin and you realize afterwards that you were actually laughing or grinning at yourself and the angst and tremor with which you pursued love.
Check that out here.
(not to be confused with my TCP
partner and bad music lover, Alan
) asks a bunch of questions that I'm not going to answer and a few that I will. Sorry, Alan, but asking which nipple I favored when my kids were nursing is just weird and, well....there are sites for people like you. $14.95 a year, but it might be worth it to avoid having to type that stuff into search engines.
18. Have you ever had the urge to cat blog?
That would be odd, seeing as that I would have to go out and get a cat first. I did, however, tell Laurence
- the king of cat blogging - that when I move we're going to look into the cat thing so I can finally show him my pussy.
19. What were you thinking of when DJ was conceived?
20. Can you justify your existence?
21. Does DJ have a crush?
He's eleven and hitting puberty at full steam. He'll crush on any girl with boobs bigger than mosquito bites.
22. Name him.
Who Him? DJ's crush? If you haven't figured out that DJ is a boy by now, you haven't been paying attention.
Perhaps you think DJ might be gay, which really isn't unheard of as everyone in my family at one time or another has said, that boy has got
to be gay.
Between the showtunes and the cross-dressing we figured it was a given.
DJ did announce to us, just about two years ago, that he was gay. I had then made plans to ship him off to Choire's
for a week or so to get a crash course in Being the Perfect Gay Guy.
Then he got all hetero on us.
