Bel Biv Devoe is Mentioned Here. I Promise.

I used to poo-poo blogs all the time, but my computer started smelling funny. Also, I read Crabbydad’s blog. Now I like them. Actually, I only like a couple of them. Crabbydad you know. I also like A Year of Working and Liberty Valence.

Crabbydad stuck me with some sort of chain mail thing. It involves answering the following questions and then passing it on to three other blogs. I don’t know that many people… but I’ll deal with that later. First, the questions.

Three people/things that make me laugh
A big guy playing a tiny drum set, that time Chris fell on the treadmill, and my grandma playing Dance Dance Revolution.

Three things that scare me
The possibility of street-signs flying off their posts on a windy day and decapitating me, The Dark Crystal, and the playground in Genoa City, Wisconsin that was all rusty and overgrown with vines.

Three things I love
Pancakes, movies about extra-curricular activities, and great crowds.

Three things I hate
Nuts in brownies, nuts in cookies and mushrooms (nature’s nuts.)

Three things I don’t understand
Right before a cell phone rings, the signal interferes with speakers and headphones creating a buzzing noise. You’ve probably heard it. I understand why that happens. What I don’t understand is why the interference sounds like “Poison” by Bel Biv Devoe. Also, why was the Mars Bar discontinued? And why wasn’t the Chunky discontinued?

Three things on my desk
The soundtrack to The Muppet Movie, the original drawing that spawned The Shapes, and a ukulele pitch pipe.

Three things I want to do before I die
Play one great guitar solo live, like the one at the end of “Goodybe Stranger.” I’d also like to beat my brother in ping pong. And is it too much to want to go to space? I mean, I’d like to go to space.

Three things I can do
Make pie crust from scratch, organize gatherings, and coil cables into perfect circles.

Three things I would like to learn:
How to sing harmonies, basic automotive maintenance, and just a little itty bit of fashion sense.

Three favorite foods
Can I use pancakes again? OK. Then pancakes. Pancakes, cupcakes and cake doughnuts. But not wedding cakes. I’ve had, maybe, one good wedding cake in my life. Why does fancy food taste so nasty?

Three beverages I drink regularly
Root Beer. Let’s just go with 3 root beers.

Three TV shows/Books I watched/read as a kid
There was this one book I remember loving called Tootle. It was about a train that didn’t like running on the tracks so he’d go off and prance in the fields. A couple years ago I got a chance to read Tootle again… and it sucks! In the end he learns that life is better if you stay on the tracks. That’s the moral of the story: don’t go smell the flowers, stay on the tracks and do your job and be miserable. What kind of stupid moral is that for kids? Good thing I was too big an idiot to remember that. I guess I just liked the trains. All the stuff I liked as a kid is terrible. My brother an I used to wake up on Saturday mornings to watch The Mighty Orbots. I still remember the theme song. Even now we talk about how great that show was. At least we did until I had a chance to watch it recently. TERRIBLE! I did get a chance to see 3-2-1 Contact again, though, and that was pretty good. In fact, setting TiVo to record it is one of the reasons my TiVo now thinks I’m an 8 year old girl.

And that about wraps it up. Now, three people to send it to? How about Innis, Shama-la-di-da, and CNN.
