What's that? You want answers?

Idea stolen from Sarah and the Goon Squad because I have a headache and seeing clearly is difficult - actual thought is close to impossible.  I already almost put the ice cube trays in the pantry. 

1) Name the first grown up book you read.
I honestly can't remember, but I know that my mom would bring home bags of books from where she worked, and they were all wildly inappropriate for pre-teens [in her defense, she was given the books and English was not her first, second or third language].  Let's say Valley of the Dolls.
2) What is your favorite movie with Kevin Bacon in it?
 I had to check IMDB, because bastard's been in everything.  I'm not a big fan, but he was excellent as himself on Will & Grace.  I know, technically not a movie, so my next choice would be Animal House.
3) Name one song that you love but you are embarrassed to admit it.
One Week by Barenaked Ladies
4) What was the best meal of your life?
Christmas dinner 2009.  I made it and it was incredible [not to toot my own horn or anything, but it was excellent].  Everything came out perfectly - the tenderloin, the mushroom & shallot gravy, the mashed potatoes, the chocolate chip cheesecakes, all the other side dishes and appetizers.  So good.  Now I'm starving.
5) What was the first concert you ever saw live?
Echo & the Bunnymen when I was 14.  SO FUCKING AWESOME.  The girl I went with had never heard of them and was very straight-laced.  She could not comprehend all the New Wave cool kids all around.  
That's all I've got for today.  I'm going to do some work.  Or nap.  Or nap while working.


  1. My favorite episode of Will & Grace was with Kevin Bacon also. I loved when he did the clap on & Footloose music came on. Then he & Will did the Footloose dance. OMG I laughed so hard I cried.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE BNL. Miss Steve Page. I will see the 4 in August.

  2. My great grandmother & great aunt loved dirty romance novels. They left me read totally inappropriate books too.

    I'm trying to get my 7 old to love to read too. Don't care what he reads, JUST READ!!!

  3. Grande Mocha - I know, that was ALL KINDS of hilarious. Just the look on Will's face when they were dancing! How lucky to see BNL!

    I know, it's amazing how adults can be BLIND to what kids are reading. My daughter is 13 and very prudish [NO IDEA where she gets that from] but I'm waiting for the furtive reading.

    I wish I had advice on how to teach a kid to read, but it sounds like you are doing what I would do - just let him read whatever. All reading is great!

    Thanks for writing!
