Inspired by and taken from this clever idea for a meme found at this blog. Ah, pointless memes. For when you have nothing interesting to write about... or when you're keeping the good stuff to yourself.
Hypotheticals: If you could coach any professional sports team, which one would it be?
I couldn't coach any team. I don't know the rules to any team sports. Also, I don't care if anyone wins.
Anything Goes: Fill in the blank- I could probably bench press ____ pounds.
Oh, not too much more than a hundred. I've never been a max lifter, just a rep lifter.
No-Brainers: What is the best restaurant you've ever been to?
Man, I couldn't possibly narrow it down to one. There's a place called the Green Room, now closed, here in town where I ate the best fish I've ever eaten. But when I think of good and memorable meals, I almost always think about expensive, very well cooked steak. I've enjoyed Pappas Brothers Steakhouse and Nick and Sam's here in town, and Jake's Grill in Oregon. But I've also gone wild over high-quality sushi in Portland (Mio's!) and New York.
Personals: When was the most embarrassing moment of your life?
I think I win in this category. On a seventh grade field trip out of state, I once had to go to the bathroom really badly, but the guide wouldn't stop, and I ended up peeing my pants. Not in front of the whole class, but in front of a couple of guys. I assume everyone knew about it quickly enough after that, in any case. The headmaster had to take me back to the hotel, where I showered and changed. How humiliating.
