The 5 Question Meme

Thanks to Michelle at Mom With Attitude!

1. What was your favorite tv show as a kid?
A true child of the 80s, I'm going to have to go with The Cosby Show.

2. If you had to choose, which one celebrity would you select to go before a firing squad because this celebrity is just that annoying?
Well several celebrities immediately spring to mind, so I had a hard time narrowing it down to just one. Therefore, since I'm not one to follow rules to the letter, I give you:

Second Runner Up: Bob Saget. Former star of the awful 80s sitcom Full House (also starring Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen), and known best for his horrifying work as the host of "America's Funniest Home Videos," Bob is a comedian who regularly laughs at his own jokes, but he's got the world's most annoying laugh in which he basically snorts and gasps for breath. Here's Bob:

Now does that look like a huge annoying dork or what???

First Runner Up: Tom Cruise. We all know Tom--a mediocre actor who makes a ridiculous amount of money and gets an equally ridiculous amount of attention. Tom was pretty low on the annoyance radar until recently when he graduated to Grand Wizard of Annoyance. First there was his enthusiastic, insane, childish declaration of love to Katie Holmes on Oprah. Then the freakishness about his Scientology beliefs started coming out. He lambasted Brooke Shields for taking antidepressants for post-partum depression and said that vitamins would have helped her. Plus he dumped Nicole Kidman. Nicole Kidman! I love Nicole Kidman! He has GOT to be gay. Here's Tom:

Does this look like a man with all of his faculties intact? I didn't think so.

But finally, we have our big winner. Number 1 in front of the firing squad...

If you don't immediately recognize him, consider yourself lucky. This is Carrot Top--hands down the world's most annoying comedian. I mean just LOOK at him! Doesn't he look like someone who deserves to be shot? Why yes, yes he does. My distaste for this man knows no boundaries. I can't even begin to describe it here. Suffice to say, if you know who he is, I'm sure you share my feelings.

3. What do you most like about yourself?
Physically or in general? I'll answer both. Physically, I like my smile. I show a lot of teeth but it's wide and sincere. In general, I like my sense of humor. I completely crack myself up! Except unlike Bob Saget, I don't laugh too hard at my own jokes and the ones I laugh at are really good jokes, not the lame ones. And I don't snort or gasp for air while I do it.

4. If you could get away for a weekend all by yourself, where would you go?
I had to think a lot about this one. I'm not one for spending time by myself. I spend too much of it inside my head and that's not always the most productive place to be. So I had to think of a place I wouldn't mind being by myself, and I finally came up with one. I would go back to the Girl Scout camp I used to work at. My best summers were spent there (5 years). Okay, the last one wasn't so great, but the others were awesome. If you've ever worked at a camp, you understand what I'm talking about, and if not, you've missed out. In fact, I'm seriously considering going up at as a volunteer counselor next summer.

5. If you were to have a blogger over for dinner, who would it be and why? (and no, I won't throw a hissy fit if it's not me. lol I'm just digging for new reads here. ;-)
Oh that's a tough one! I do have to say that I would love to meet Michelle (who sent me these questions) because she's seriously spunky and funny as hell. And speaking of funny blogs, my good "in real life" friend whose name I probably shouldn't mention due to the content of her blog, writes some funny stuff over at Confessions of an English Teacher. We've had plenty of dinners and they've always been enjoyable.

And here's the rules:

The Interview Me Game Rules.
1. If you want to participate, leave a comment below saying, “interview me.”
2. I will respond by asking you five questions - each person’s will be different.
3. You will update your journal/blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

So if you're interested or are just looking for blog content filler *coughcoughCassiecough* leave me a comment and 5 questions will be yours!
