My Friends Call Me Tulip
- Can you stay inside all day without getting bored?
Yup. I've had to learn that since I'm basically allergic to the outdoors from early August until a hard frost in the fall.
- Tell us about a TV show that we should watch.
As my son says, "you do you" so I try not to tell people what they should do. Having said that, I really like almost everything Mike Rowe is involved in.
- When was the last time you were at your home computer all day?
I'm not sure. Maybe last weekend? I don't know; it's not that unusual.
- What websites other than your own do you visit daily?
What I have open right now: GoodReader, Inoreader, Gmail, Facebook, and Blogger. I don't go to my site daily, or even Blogger. Facebook is my crack.
- Do you have a favorite day of the week? Why?
I used to love Mondays; I still like them, but I work full-time now so it's less exciting. I like Fridays at work too--they just seem way laid-back.
- Did you ever watch Saturday morning cartoons? What was your favorite?
Nope. Saturday morning, when I was a child, meant staying in my room and cleaning while Mom cleaned the rest of the house. Once lunchtime passed, I was free to do whatever I wanted, which rarely involved TV.
- Were you a comic book fan?
Not so much, no.
- Did you earn an allowance when you were a kid? How much? Was it tied to chores?
My parents were never really into this. I got paid a little to take the trash out for awhile, but mostly if I wanted money, I just asked. Which involved explaining what I wanted it for.
- What is the fanciest type of car you've ridden in? What occasion?
I was in a Porsche for a day quite some time ago, helping a friend move. She was 24...and owned a Porsche. WTF! And I've ridden in a number of limos over the years. It's an airport thing around here.
- What's your favorite sport to watch?
Football. Really, need you ask??
- Ever tried surfing?
Nope. I can't swim. Surfing seems like it could be rather dangerous for me.
- Have you ever been to a live major team sporting game?
Yeah. Been to a NFL games, a couple of NBA games, lots of MLB games, and some hockey and soccer games. You know what, though: I've never been to a sports event in another country. There's a bucket list thing.
- From a scale of 1 to 5 how athletic are you (1=nerd, 5=very athletic)?
I'm probably about -4 these days.
- What's your favorite horror movie?
I don't do horror movies.
- What is your favorite cult classic movie?
By default, it has to be RHPS.
- About how many times do you go to the movies a month?
I think my average for this year is up to .2 times per month. Last few years, it would probably be closer to .02 times per month.
- Favorite movie, which one came to your head first?
- What if your life was like a movie? What type of movie would it be?
Deadly dull with moments of insanity. I'm not sure anyone would watch it.
- Do you like long series movies, like "Lord of the Rings"?
Well, I don't like LotR, but I did enjoy the Harry Potter movies and the Matrix movies. Generally, though, I prefer brand-new ideas rather than re-doing the same damn thing over and over. Hello, superheroes, I'm looking SQUARELY at you!
