I noticed yesterday that this “40 Odd Questions” thingie is making the rounds again and since I answered these odd questions back in October of last year, I figured I’d just cut and paste my eight-month old response here and pretend that it’s new.Cheryl (aka, The Bag Lady) published a list of 40 questions labeled “odd things about me” that she received from her sister. 40 seems like a lot of questions, but they’re short (and odd) and don’t require a whole lot of thought. And since I don’t particularly like to give anything a whole lot of thought, I thought I’d take a shot at them.
(I just noticed something I missed when I responded to this back in October. There are only 39 odd questions because, for no apparent reason, there is no question 28.)
1. Do you like blue cheese? No. When cheese turns blue, it’s moldy, so I throw it away. Or maybe when it turns green. I can never remember.
2. Coke or Pepsi? Diet Coke.
3. Do you own a gun? I have a soldering gun in my garage. Does that count?

Now you copy and paste the questions to your blog, but replace my answers with yours. Easy-peasy.
