The Questions Galore Meme - part 2

More stealing from Catch Her in the Wry, who stole it from Sunday Stealing:

21. What was the last song you listened to that wasn’t sung in English?
Oye como va

22. One of our SS players generally leaves a critical comment on our memes. Which is fine. All's fair. Do you let meme authors know when you hate their memes?
Um, you have Nazis doing your memes? I would never have guessed that. Now I'm not sure if I should do this anymore.

23. What TV show would you like to be on?
Modern Family, I guess, just because it's really funny and there are a lot of hot females. I'd like to play the obnoxious neighbor who speeds through the neighborhood in a Camaro and drives Claire insane.

24. What was the last video game you played?
Sometimes I think the battles I have with my computer is some sick video game created by Microsoft and they're tracking how much the frustration makes me curse. They probably get bonus points for every time that I shout "fuck this piece of shit computer!"

25. Have you ever been in a musical? If yes, do tell.
No one would ever be dumb enough to allow me to take part in a musical. One day, if I'm really mad at you, I'll sing for you and make you cry and beg me to stop.

26. Do you follow your own style or everyone else’s?
Is there anything about my blog that makes you think I have any sort of style? Seriously? If I had my own line of fashionable clothing the label would be "Loser" and all my models would be the guys from "Big Bang Theory."

27. What’s the last store you bought from?
Probably or Target. I'm a DVD maniac. While everyone else is subscribing to Netflix, watching movies and sending them back, I'm stockpiling them. One day after Netflix goes bankrupt you'll all have to come crawling to me for copies of your favorite movies and TV shows. BWA HA HA!!!

28. In retrospect, have you ever let a person use you a lot?
Pretty much, yeah. But I'm trying to put a stop to all that. Except the people who pay me for it. But they seriously need to pay me a lot more.

29. What are you doing two days from now?
Probably sitting in my office frantically trying to figure out a problem with a project before someone else interrupts me with some new crisis.

30. Did you ever believe there were monsters in your closet?
No, they were in the next room snoring and if I made any sound that woke them up I'd get a beating.

31. When you graduated high school, did you let random people sign your yearbook or just close friends?
Close friends and people that I thought were way cooler than me. I got the popular girls who I thought were hot to sign if they were willing to do it. Some wouldn't, which sort of refers back to that question about my style and my personal line of clothing with the "Loser" label.

32. Would you consider adopting a child that had a mental illness?
I don't want any of those kids from the Occupy Wall Street mobs in my house, if that's what you mean.

33. Does thinking about death scare you?
Not death so much as the possibility that I'll screw it up and end up still alive, but terribly disabled or disfigured.

34. If you died, do you believe that you go to Heaven or Hell and where would your spirit go?
Well, based on the way your question is worded, I believe I would go into the ground and my spirit would go to Heaven where there is no such thing as Microsoft or the hourglass or computer viruses.

35. Who did you last write a snail mail letter to and why?
Probably someone on my Christmas card list and the note probably said "Merry Christmas, you fuckers."

36. Do you care what people say or think about you?
Apparently not nearly enough. Reputation, reputation, reputation, I have lost my reputation, but I can always look it up again using Google.

37. Have you ever been threatened?
There have been all sorts of women in my life. Of course I've been threatened.

38. Which side of your family do you get most of your qualities from?
The side no one ever talks about.

39. What was the last thing with alcohol that you drank?
Jagermeister, straight up, in a Hello Kitty shotglass. I was sick and it seemed to help. Cut me some slack.

40. Have you ever kept a relationship a secret?
Oh listen, bloggers don't have secrets. We run out of material and then spew all our secrets out of desperation for something to write about. Then we're all insulted when no one really gives a rats ass about our big bad secrets.

Carianne Barrow (The Batchelor) strips off for provocative underwear shots

Wonder what you saw in her? After Gavin Henson chooses her as his girlfriend, Carianne Barrow strips off for provocative underwear shots

By Holly Thomas and Emily Sheridan

Last updated at 11:48 AM on 31st October 2011

She snapped up rugby player Gavin Henson in a tense The Bachelor finale which saw her in close competition with her rival Layla Manoochehri.

And now it's becoming clear exactly what Gavin saw in Carianne Barrow.

The 24-year-old Middlesex model struck some very provocative poses in her underwear in a steamy new photoshoot.

Appearing perfectly comfortable in a bra and suspenders, the blonde stuck various sexy poses in the somewhat dingy-looking corridor.

At one stage in the raunchy shoot she even removed her bra, preserving her modesty with only one arm, grinning confidently at the camera.

Another photo shows her leaning seductively against a wall, one finger in her mouth.

And she made sure she covered all angles, turning around so that the photographer could catch her pert behind.

In an interview after the show, Carriane mused about the personal qualities which saw her snare her man.

Personality won the day? Despite her obvious assets, the blonde believes it was her sense of humour and confidence which won Gavin over

'I would have never have guessed that Gavin had liked me that much There were 24 other girls. Everyone was beautiful, with their own personality. I’m really surprised,' she insisted.

Stripping down: Carianne bared (almost) all when she removed her bra, covering her modesty with her arm

'I think my sense of humour and the fact that I’ve got a lot more confidence put me ahead. Plus I’m more outgoing and a bit louder. It worked in my favour. I’ve been a strong character throughout. From day one I’ve stood out a lot and everyone knows who I am.'

She also emphasised that nothing more than kissing occurred on the show, adding: 'I don’t think it’s the sort of atmosphere were you can have sex. The cameras were there. It’s not the right setting.'

The rugby player, 29, left singer-songwriter Layla Manoochehri, 25, heartbroken after opting for the Middlesex model, 24.

After turning down Layla, who famously used to date Blue singer Simon Webbe, Henson declared his love for bubbly blonde Carianne.

He told her: 'I've been looking for a long-term relationship. Someone I can give 100 per cent to and will get that back...

'Carianne, you're The One. I feel so lucky. I feel so lucky to have found you. you're so unique.

'Please give me the opportunity to make you feel special, Let me be your best friend and give me the opportunity to make you happy for the rest of you life.'

As she beamed with happiness, he then uttered those three little words - despite his sexy hot tub kissing session with Layla the night before.

He declared: 'I love you Carianne. Will you please accept this rose and make me the happiest man alive by being my girlfriend.'

As the new couple embraced, an emotional Carianne replied that she loved him too: 'I want to be with you forever.'

Over the past two months, the Welsh athlete has whittled down 25 women to just two for the grand final in St Lucia.

At the beginning of the show, he admitted he'd had some tricky moments with both finalists.

He said: 'They've stood out from the beginning. There has been a few hiccups with Carianne and a bit of blip with Layla.'

He was helped on his way to his decision by his parents Alan and Audrey and younger sister Sarah, who had private conversations with each girl without Gavin present.

However, Carianne admitted she didn't have much experience with children so would have to learn how to look after Gavin's son and daughter.

She said: 'I'm rubbish with kids... Once I get used to the idea, I should be alright.'

Reporting back to Gavin, his mother Audrey said: 'Carianne seems more naive than Layla. Layla is more like you, she's seen the world a little bit.'

After Gavin informed his family that Carianne had a degree so wasn't as dizzy as she came across, his mum replied: 'So she wouldn't be hanging on your coat-tails, then?'

Getting on side: Carianne told Gavin's family they were a 'good-looking bunch'

Before making his decision, he took each contestant on one last date to help him make his decision.

After a stroll in the Botanical Gardens and dinner, Gavin and Carianne took turns in massaging each other.

Following their pamper session, Carianne admitted she was struggling to control her lust: 'I did enjoy massaging him, I like touching his body but I don't think I got him lovestruck from my massage.

Romantic: The couple enjoyed a dip in the sea for their last date

'When Gavin was massaging me I felt a bit frisky. I feel like what's going on between me and Gavin is the beginning of something great.'

On his day with Layla, the pair enjoyed dinner in his private suite, before moving on to the hot tub.

Layla decided to make her move and the pair enjoyed a passionate kissing session in their swimwear.

Later, Layla hinted there had been more than kissing: 'What happened under the bubbles I couldn't possibly tell you.'

But before asking Carianne to be his girlfriend, Gavin told Layla he simply had stronger feelings for Carianne.

He said: 'From the first moment I saw you I was attracted to you. I felt the connection straight away. I can be myself around you. I feel so comfortable around you. I'm always so excited to see you. You have the qualities that I value and are so important to me.

'You're such a beautiful person. But I'm so sorry I have stronger feelings for someone else. I have stronger feelings for someone else. It does hurt.'

Making her move: Despite his 'love' for Carianne, Gavin was quite willing for a kissing session in the jacuzzi with Layla

Thursday Things I Think About

1) You can't make someone write a book about their life, no matter how interesting it may be. All you can do is write your own book. Mine would be really boring and have a lot of grammatical errors.

2) You can't make someone interested in modeling no matter how pretty their face. And it's usually creepy to mention it to them anyway, unless you have a camera in your hand and a better-looking model with you at the time. It's funny how girls don't mind being asked to model if you've already got a model with you, but otherwise they look at you like you're a serial rapist or something. And just for the record, I am not a serial rapist. I just can't give that kind of commitment right now.

3) Each time my heart is broken it goes back together differently. And each time I have to put my heart back together again, there are more cracks, more leaks, where the love just slips right through and I feel less and less like I can survive going through it all again.

4) It is possible to love yourself so much that you have no room left in your heart to love anyone else. It is possible, but it is not good.

5) Sometimes I still talk to Spiky.

6) If death is not the end, what is?

7) It has been a hard revelation, but I have come to realize that I simply do not understand the current generation that is in their 20s. They seem to make and break relationships at the drop of a hat, seemingly at random, placing no value whatever on friends. Facebook is real life to them. Drop or Block means you are gone and if I see you on the street I will not say 'hello' to you. And they see nothing wrong with this. It is as casual as I would say "see you later" to a friend of mine as I was leaving their house. The only difference is, I would expect to see my friend again. This generation, they really don't seem to care about that. Show up, don't show up, love me today and leave me tomorrow, disappear forever - it's all the same. I don't know how anyone can live like that. I don't want to.

8) I have never hurt as much as I have lately. And the hurt just keeps on coming.

9) My concept of God has become all turned around. In church they talk like God is right here standing next to you, taking care of you. Then they show you in the Bible where it says he's gone away and we are on our own, living in a world of suffering and death. Then they tell you to follow the example set by Jesus. Then they pray to Jesus or the Holy Spirit, but Jesus only ever prayed to God the Father, not himself or any spirit. They pray for things like healing and help, yet I can't think of one example where Jesus asked God for help and then waited to see if help came. He just said "I wish you wouldn't make me go through this" and then he went through it, pain and suffering and all. God didn't save him and he didn't seem to expect God to. Why do we pray? Does God really do anything or is it just like sending him an email which he never responds to? I don't know anymore.

10) Sometimes I still talk to Steph.

The Questions Galore Meme - part 1

In case you weren't aware, I am almost totally lacking in inspiration for blogging lately. The suckage level of my life has reached a new high, but my desire to talk about it has reached a new low. So I stole this meme instead.

From Catch Her In The Wry who got it from Sunday Stealing:

1. Is there someone in your life you know you’d be better off without?
I'm not sure. I tried to get rid of most of those people. There are still one or two I haven't finished reevaluating yet.

2. Do you get criticized because of your body?
Not out loud, but you know how college girls are. You can see their thoughts in their faces as their mouths are silently forming the word "ewwww."

3. Did you kiss the last person you called?
I can't even recall the last time I made a telephone call. I mostly just text these days. Or email.

4. When was the last time you danced?
No one considers the movements I make to music to actually be dancing. I think they call it "are you alright?"

5. Do you keep in mind other people’s feelings?
Usually, unless they are extraordinarily stupid, in which case I simply try to avoid them altogether and to hell with their feelings.

6. If you have a hang nail, do you pull it or clip it?
I get a hammer, pound it into the wall, and hang a picture from it. That's what 'hang' nails are for, silly.

7. Who do you want to forget?
Myself for a little while. Maybe a long while.

8. Who was the last person to send you a letter?
The Wall Street Journal begging me not to let my subscription expire and also to please send them a ridiculous amount of money. This is a game we play every year where they try to rob me blind and I let my subscription expire before they finally give me a decent price.

9. Who did you last tell to shut up?
Probably someone on the television who couldn't hear me.

10. What’s the last thing that you smelt that smelt bad?
I'm not a smelter myself, but my father used to smelt lead into bullets. My sense of smell is virtually nonexistent. Some say this is why my life is so sad. But earlier today I was dragged into a Yankee Candle store and I believe my lack of strong smelling abilities probably saved my life in there.

11. What’s your favorite cereal?
Lucky Charms, which I haven't eaten in forever.

12. How do you feel when people lead you on, but they don’t even like you?
You mean how do I feel right now? Hopeless. Angry. Betrayed.

13. Could you live without sunlight?
I don't know, Memphis is pretty damned dark and I've been here far longer than I ever expected to be. Apparently hell is a dark place and I've survived it so far.

14. What’s something you know is bad, but you want to do it anyway?
What isn't? Anything worth doing is usually bad.

15. What was the last thing you lied about?
Is smiling when you actually feel like dying a lie? I suppose I lied about feeling OK when I really don't.

16. Do you regret anything you’ve done in the past week?
Nothing has come my way in the past week worth regretting, so no.

17. What was the last movie you bought?
I bought the PBS special "Prohibition". You might argue that it isn't a movie, but I would then lie and say it is and tell you to "shut up." Then I would have to go back and redo parts of this meme and include you.

18. What is a sport you would like to do?
I've recently had people encouraging me to do a triathlon or two and I'm thinking it over.

19. When was the last time you felt like crying?
Today. Tonight. Tomorrow.

20. Have you ever wanted to kill someone (not that you actually do it)?
Yeah, just haven't done it yet.

Memphis Fairy Tales : Goldilocks and the Three Bears

The Three Bears

Once upon a time there were three bears - Papa Bear, Mama Bear and wee little Baby Bear.

All three of the Bears were great big and fat, as they lived in America and ate way too much fried food while watching reality shows on TV all day long.

The Bears never exercised and only ever left their house to go to work or WalMart for food or cheap crap from China that they really didn't need, but weren't going to be able to use for very long anyway, because cheap Chinese crap always breaks before too long.

One day, while Mama Bear was heating up a pot pie in the microwave, Papa Bear was watching men dressed in pink tutus play professional football on television, and Baby Bear was glued to his computer playing a computer game, in walked a little blonde girl named Goldilocks.


Goldilocks was from Bavaria and didn't eat fried food much at all. She rarely watched television, which was just as well because Bavaria doesn't have very many stupid reality shows on their channels anyway. And she had to walk uphill everywhere she went, which kept her slim and pretty and in great physical shape.

But one thing Goldilocks and the rest of the people from Bavaria did a lot of was to drink beer. She drank big old glass mugs filled with beer. And not the cheap, watery American beer that Papa Bear drank, either. She drank good old Bavarian Oktoberfest-style beer, loaded with alcohol, hops and barley, and good for whatever ails ya.

On this fine day, Goldilocks had drank a whole lot of beer before going for a 10 mile walk just for the fun of it. She was a little tipsy and a lot lost.

"Hallo, wo zur Hölle bin ich?" Goldilocks said aloud in a thick Bavarian accent as she stood just inside the Bears house, which means, "Hello, where the hell am I?". But none of the Bears could hear her, because the microwave was humming, the TV was blaring the sounds of football, and the computer speakers blasting laser sound effects and big soundcard enhanced explosions.

So she walked into the living room where Papa Bear and Baby Bear both were and said it again, "wo zur Hölle bin ich?" Still, no one answered because they did not hear her.

Goldilocks was very hungry, having walked far more than 10 miles because she got lost in the woods. So, being a little drunk, and very Germanic, she decided to just go ahead and make herself something to eat. The Bears didn't seem to mind her being in their house, and they sure were very rude, so why not?

Goldilocks walked into the kitchen just as Mama Bear took her freshly microwaved pot pie and walked out the other door at the opposite end. She began searching the refrigerator until she found a box containing some Kentucky Fried Chicken left over from the Bears supper the night before.

"Mmm, huhn schmeckt gut!" she said, which means, "mmm, chicken will taste good!" And she popped the whole box into the microwave and began heating it up.


Ding! In a few short minutes the chicken was warm and ready to eat, so Goldilocks sat down at the kitchen table and ate it all, stopping only long enough to go the refrigerator and pour herself a glass of milk to go with it.

After eating all the chicken, Goldilocks decided to go into the den where the Bear family was to ask if they might tell her where she was and how to find her way home again.

Where am I?

"Wollen sie bitte sagen Sie mir, wo ich bin?" she said as she walked into the room and stood beside the couch where Papa Bear and Mama Bear were both sitting and staring like zombies at the Pepsi commercial on the TV. The commercial was very loud, and Papa Bear had just paid Best Buy to install a new home theater sound system that could vibrate a Bear right off the couch with the deep digitally-enhanced sound the speakers produced. Papa Bear didn't hear her. Neither did Mama Bear. And Baby Bear had put on his headphones because Mama Bear complained that his computer game was too loud and distracting her from the TV. So he didn't hear Goldilocks either.

Tired and frustrated, and a little bit drunk, Goldilocks sat down in a chair next to the couch. The chair was a cheap Chinese knock-off of an antique Victorian chair and had almost no padding at all.

This chair is too hard!

"Guter Herr, dieser Stuhl ist zu hart!" Goldilocks exclaimed.

So she moved to another chair. But she fell into it like a fat man sitting on a giant marshmallow, sinking in until her feet came up off the floor.

Mein Gott, dieser Stuhl ist zu weich! she said, and stood up again with great effort.

She went and sat in the chair in front of the computer, where Baby Bear had been sitting before he had to get up and go use the bathroom. He had been drinking Cokes all morning long while playing his game and was nearly bursting before he reluctantly left his seat.

This chair is just right

"Schließlich, ein Stuhl, ist bequem." Goldilocks said, relieved.

But just as she was getting comfortable, Baby Bear returned and without even looking at her, nearly sat on top of her before unpausing his game and returning to mindless play. Goldilocks had to jump out of his way to avoid being squashed under the fat little bear.

"Sie bären sind sehr unhöflich!" Goldilocks exclaimed angrily. But Baby Bear had returned his headphones to his head, and Mama and Papa Bear were too caught up in the surround sound enhanced noises of the pink football game to hear her.

Exhausted now, Goldilocks decided to go find a place to lie down. Clearly she wasn't going to be getting home anytime soon if she had to rely on the help of the Bears. So she might as well get some sleep.

Goldilocks went upstairs to sleep

She walked upstairs and found 1 large open room with 3 beds. She thought to herself that it was no surprise The Bears only had 1 child with sleeping arrangements like these.

She threw herself down on the first bed she came to, which was Papa Bear's bed. It was the hardest, most uncomfortable bed she had ever been on.

Ouch, that bed is too hard and it hurts!

"Autsch, ist das bett hart wie ein stein!" Goldilocks shouted, finding the bed so hard that she wondered if she might have injured herself.

Next she tried Mama Bear's bed, a big pink fluffy mountain of decorative pillows, comforters, afghans, and stuffed dolls. She sank into it like Jello, with all the decorative pillows and stuffed dolls falling in on top of her.

This bed is ridiculous. I feel like I'm stuffed inside a burrito!

"Das bett ist lächerlich. Ich fühle mich wie ich in ein burrito gefüllt bin," Goldilocks exclaimed.

With great effort, Goldilocks managed to climb out of the sunken mass of feminine decoration and fluff. In frustration she threw decorative pillows across the room. Then she walked to the last bed, Baby Bear's bed. It was shaped like a racecar and had Speedracer sheets.

She plopped down on the bed and fell right onto a plastic racecar, which jabbed her in the abdomen and made her curse with pain, "gibt verdammt, es ein normales Bett im Plenum dumm?!"

She threw the racecar across the room, hitting the wall and breaking it. Then she got up and began looking around the room. That's when she noticed the old fashioned telephone sitting on the table between Papa Bear and Mama Bear's beds.

A telephone!

"A telefon, Gott sei dank!" she exclaimed as she ran over to the telephone, picked it up and dialed home.

10 minutes later, Goldilocks' father pulled up outside the house. His caller ID had given him the telephone number Goldilocks was calling from, and Googling the number gave him the address. Goldilocks was SO happy to see him.

Dad is here!

Seeing her father's car, Goldilocks ran downstairs and straight out the front door, slamming it behind her.

Don't slam the door!

"Don't slam the door!" Papa Bear grumbled without looking away from the TV.

Who are you talking to?

"Who are you talking to, dear?" Mama Bear asked, seeing Baby Bear still sitting at the computer playing his game.

"Hmm?" Papa Bear asked.

But Mama Bear didn't hear him. She was distracted by a commercial for a new diet Dr. Pepper drink.

Goldilocks jumped happily into her father's car, shut the door, and away for home they went.

Goldilocks goes home

"Diese Amerikaner sind extrem behaarten und fett," she said, smiling at her father who was very relieved to have found her. He just laughed.

And they lived happily ever after.

Rainy Tuesday

I just watched the Republican presidential debates in Nevada. All I really have to say about tonight's debates is this:

Rick Santorum seems like he's flailing, panicking. He's barely in this race and he's fighting for his life. It shows.

Ron Paul hasn't changed a bit. His message appeals to the same people that it appealed to from the beginning, but it just isn't enough. He's overly simplistic on complex issues and explains very little. Whether you like him or dislike him, agree or disagree, he's not going to make it.

Herman Cain is stronger now than he ever was. When this all started he seemed like a side show to me, but he has grown stronger and more convincing over time. He's likable and believable. He's for real.

Mitt Romney has also grown stronger. He's soothing the concerns of many who disliked or distrusted him at first, and successfully stiff-armed Rick Perry's efforts to tackle him. Rick Santorum is the only other candidate consistently taking shots directly at Romney, but they have been largely ineffective and easy for Romney to brush off without missing a beat.

Rick Perry is still one of the main candidates, clearly, but he's so busy swinging at Romney that he hasn't done as good a job as he needs to make a case for himself and why he should be our next president.

Newt Gingrich, when he gets to speak at all, seems a lot more reasonable and level-headed, especially in contrast to the three-way brawl between Mitt and The Ricks. But he hasn't sparked any excitement for his campaign beyond that which existed when he started. He sounds like a better candidate now than before, but I'll be surprised if he's able to hang in this battle through to November.

Michelle Bachmann didn't do nearly as well tonight as she did last time I heard her. She has apparently been coached to always spend half her time stating what her plan is and why she would make the best president rather than fully answering whatever question was posed to her. I think that's a mistake because it irritates people when a direct question is asked of her and she repeatedly fails to answer it fully. Even worse, she's taken to directing her answers only to women. That alienates all the male voters, me included, and guarantees that she won't win.

Huntsman failed to participate in this debate at all and as far as I'm concerned that's just as well. He's simply not a contender. Hell, he's not even a conservative.

Remember the Delorean, the stainless steel tank from the movie Back to the Future? Well, it's back. Sort of. The company is bringing the car back, but this time as an electric car. They say their electric Delorean makes 260 hp and will reach a maximum speed of 125 mph. Why anyone would want to take a giant stainless steel car and make it all-electric is a mystery to me. One of the biggest drawbacks to the Delorean was also one of its selling points - it is made entirely of stainless steel, which weighs a freakin' ton. My 1971 Monte Carlo was rated at about 260 hp when new. I can personally attest to the fact that it will do 125 mph. But it isn't made of stainless steel and it isn't powered by batteries. I'd be curious to learn more about this electric motor and whether or not it is really all electric or perhaps a combination of gas and electric powered. I think 260 hp is too little power for a car as big and heavy as this, and at a projected cost of $100,000 per car, I don't think there is a market for it.

Wall Street's protesters are still at it, mostly because there aren't any jobs available to distract them with responsibilities. They are now complaining that the New York cops are guilty of using brutality against them. I'm not sure where they've been for the past many years, but over in New Jersey, 2 cops handcuffed a man who wasn't committing any crimes and wasn't being arrested, then while one officer held him against a glass window by his throat, the other officer, a female, punched him in the testicles. THAT is police brutality and THAT has been going on for a very long time without any of those assholes currently shitting on police cars in New York City saying one word of protest against it. So yes, the New York City police are almost certainly using some very dirty and vicious tactics against the protesters. If you think that's wrong, protest it everywhere you see it, not just while you are rioting on Wall Street for a cause you don't even understand.

By the way, I pulled many of the hyperlinks for the stories I wrote about from Yahoo, and Yahoo seems to be totally fucked up today so if the links don't work, I apologize.

WTF Grandpa??

Here's how it's done ...
