Masterpiece (of Feces) Theatre
So, just as Miss Styro signed up for an interview by da crab, so did I. This is one of those fun, interactive activities brought to you by your friends at The Internet. If you would like to play along and have me interview you, the following rules apply:
1. If you want to participate, leave me a comment saying “interview me.”
2. I will respond by asking you five questions; each person’s questions will be different.
3. You will update your journal 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, here we go.
ssc: You can relive any day in your life good or bad. Describe that day. What would you do differently / what would you do the same?
I’d relive last night so I could work on my dismount.
Oh! Wait, forget that.
Um, I’m not sure about reliving the good times, or changing the bad days because of how it might affect the future events. (You can’t open the space-time continuum and not fuck things up, sweetie.) If I were pressed, I’d like to go back to a recent car-dealership experience and force a different decision.
ssc: Street drugs: better to remain illegal or better to legalize and control?
Hmmm. When you say “street drugs,” I think of things like crack, crank, and really stepped-on heroin. I guess my semi-official position is that marijuana should definitely be legal, and possibly ‘shrooms. Really, I’d say most things that are naturally occurring substances (i.e., nothing made in a lab) are okay, but that opens the door to some opiates that are just too hardcore.
ssc: When is it okay to snoop through your child’s room / personal belongings / (web) journal?
I’m sure this is one that we will have to tackle sooner than we’d like to. I want to say “never,” but I know that’s not realistic. If we suspect she’s dealing drugs, plotting a mass murder, or hustling blow-jobs, you can bet we’ll be going through her shit.
ssc: Genetic engineering is widely used today to enhance animal feed, engineer heartier crops, aid in medical research, etc. Genetic engineering: providing for a brighter future or massive global eco-disaster in the makings?
If the genetic engineering is for making the marijuana better, I’m all for it. Okay, that was bad.
It’s twelve of one, half dozen the other. There’s good and bad . . . it’s not a black-and-white issue. I’m against animal testing, but manipulating the leafy stuff is probably not so bad, right? As long as such tampering with nature is used for good. (Oh, shit. That never happens. Can I change my answer?)
ssc: If you had to give up one of the following which one would pose the biggest personal hardship?
All forms of music.
All forms of transportation other than walking.
All kitchen appliances including stove, microwave, and fridge. Oh and you can’t order out either.
Sweet, gentle God. I could never give up music. Period.
