The Homemade Meme ver 2.0

About a year ago, I made up a meme and posted it on my blog (HERE); the damn thing took off with a life of it's own. And now, out of sheer boredom, and with nothing really going on, I figured it was time for a sequel. So, with out further ado, here it is, The Homemade Meme ver 2.0.

Feel free to use it and post it on your blog, a link back would be most appreciated!

1: When you eat pasta, do you sprinkle Parmesan and / or Romano cheese on to it, or are you one of those types who skips the cheese?

2: Ben Franklin once said, “Lighthouses are more useful than churches”. Where would you rather go; to a church or a lighthouse?

3: Speaking of quotes, grab the nearest book, turn to page 13 of said book and write out your favorite passage from that page.

4: Is it OK to let the dishes soak in the sink, or should they be washed immediately? (no cheating by claiming that you always use the dishwasher).

5: One pill make you larger, and one pill makes you small: What is/was your favorite recreational drug? (even if your clean and sober now)

6: And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all: What is / was your favorite legal drug?

7: Pretending that money is no object, what luxury or outlandish service would you use as much as possible?

8: Through some kind of legal technicality, Charles Manson is finally going to be put to death for his part in the Tate – La Bianca murders. You are at the prison and have two choices: you can either call Governor Schwarzenegger and request a stay of execution, or, you can be the one who pulls the switch that fries him. Which do you choose?

9: Through a fluke, you've discovered that a simple combination of several food stuffs can be blended together to form a compound that cures everything from common colds, as well as cancer and AIDS. After you patent it, do you bring your discovery to a pharmaceutical company thereby insuring that you will be filthy rich for the rest of your life, or do you give the cure away to those who need it?

10: For some reason, chocolate makes me randy: what food turns you on?

11: Morning person or night owl, what type are you?

12: You've written your life story, what's the title of it?

MY ANSWERS:

1: Lots and lots of cheese until it looks like the Swiss Alps.
2: A lighthouse, so I could go to the top and see the ocean, like I did that time I was in Maine.
3: “Would it not be famous to ride a dragon?” - pg 13 of 'His Majesty's Dragon' by Naomi Novik
4: If the OCD is kicking, the dishes get washed, but for the most part, soaking 'em is fine!
5: Back in the day, some illicit smoke was what I liked best. These days, I can not tolerate the stuff.
6: This pill called Bromfed, works wonders on stuffy heads. Prescription only, but well worth it.
7:I would hire a chauffeur and limo and be driven everywhere!
8: As much as I find Manson a despicable piece of trash, and not worthy of much of anything, I can't see who killing him would resolve anything, it certainly would not bring any of his victims back ... so yeah, I'd be on the phone with Arnie.
9: I'd only make wealthy people pay for the cure, the rest of society would just have to ask and would receive it.
10: Looks like I already answered that one.
11: Mostly mornings, love to get up at the crack of dawn to start my day. But by three o clock I'm ready to call it a day (though a mid-afternoon power nap works wonders).
12: The King of Fucking Everything

Hey, Pax,

I've long been a lurker around here, but I thought I'd come out of lurking and answer your questions:

1: When you eat pasta, do you sprinkle Parmesan and / or Romano cheese on to it, or are you one of those types who skips the cheese?

I love parmesan, but Romano smells too bad for me when it melts...ick
(sorry)

2: Ben Franklin once said, “Lighthouses are more useful than churches”. Where would you rather go; to a church or a lighthouse?

A church...Benji's right, but "usefulness" is overrated.

3: Speaking of quotes, grab the nearest book, turn to page 13 of said book and write out your favorite passage from that page.

Oooh....good question. Let's see:

"Someone kicked in the window of Shoefty, a high end shoe boutique and what good a pair of high end Manolo Blahnik stilletos is going to do you right now, I don't know.
Idiots"
(_1 dead in attic_ by Chris Rose)

4: Is it OK to let the dishes soak in the sink, or should they be washed immediately? (no cheating by claiming that you always use the dishwasher).

It's ok to let them soak.

5: One pill make you larger, and one pill makes you small: What is/was your favorite recreational drug? (even if your clean and sober now)

Tylenol Sinus, before the meth addicts got ahold of it.
It seems to help everything

6: And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all: What is / was your favorite legal drug?

diet coke.

7: Pretending that money is no object, what luxury or outlandish service would you use as much as possible?

I would start an art collection...and
get crazy massages.

8: Through some kind of legal technicality, Charles Manson is finally going to be put to death for his part in the Tate – La Bianca murders. You are at the prison and have two choices: you can either call Governor Schwarzenegger and request a stay of execution, or, you can be the one who pulls the switch that fries him. Which do you choose?

Neither.
I don't much like the death penalty, but I'm too scared to call the Swartzeneggers.
I mean, what if I get that mean wife of his on the phone?


9: Through a fluke, you've discovered that a simple combination of several food stuffs can be blended together to form a compound that cures everything from common colds, as well as cancer and AIDS. After you patent it, do you bring your discovery to a pharmaceutical company thereby insuring that you will be filthy rich for the rest of your life, or do you give the cure away to those who need it?

I'd give it away. (he says now)

10: For some reason, chocolate makes me randy: what food turns you on?

A good filet mignon.


11: Morning person or night owl, what type are you?

Night owl

12: You've written your life story, what's the title of it?

"Well, you know...."
