Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, and the king of the quickies, wants to know:
When was the last time you wore a woolly hat and is it colored, patterned or plain?
For my birthday about 15 years ago, my wife knitted me a blue wool hat with the logo of my favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox. I still wear it on the occasional chilly days or nights we have around here in Northern California.
When was the last time you experienced a wardrobe malfunction – what was it and where were you?
The only wardrobe malfunction I can think of wais when I snagged a thread on a sweater I was wearing while walking and didn’t realize it. By the time I did notice it, the bottom third of my sweater had essentially unraveled. Other than the fact that it was one of my favorite sweaters, it was not a particularly ￼embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
Why do things become popular with people?
Well, maybe I’m oversimplifying the question, but it seems to me that things that people want, need, or like are the things that become popular with people. Am I missing some deep, hidden meaning to the question?
On a scale of 01 – 10 how angry are you right now for no other reason apart from you just are?
I’m pretty fucking angry at the GOP members of Congress who are, at best, ignoring or remaining silent on what Donald Trump has wrought and the MAGA-maniacs he has inspired to acts of violence and insurrection and who, at worst, are aiding and abetting them by giving them their support. They should be ashamed of themselves.
Please list three really funny films that have made you laugh out loud over the years?
Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein,” Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall,” and a tie between two Marx Brothers movies, “Duck Soup” and “Night at the Opera.”
What are five of the biggest mistakes that people make with their lives in your opinion?
In no particular order:
- Trying (or pretending) to be someone they are not
- ￼Valuing money over love
- Being insincere and untrustworthy
- Being petty
- Trying to impose their will on others
