- Leave a comment saying "PINEAPPLE" (or any other fruit of your choice)
- I'll respond by asking you five questions.
- Update your journal with the answers to your questions.
- Include this explanation and offer to ask other people questions, if you so choose.

1. Vegas, Paris or Calcutta?

Probably Paris, I could dig up my high school French. [livejournal.com profile] dstroy's recent French trip of her own was very interesting to follow from her photos. Maybe Vegas, my DH went there for work - but the two things I'd want to see - Siegfried & Roy's Tiger and the Star Trek Experience are gone now. Definitely NOT Calcutta, no interest in going to India.

2. Chocolate, Butterscotch or Vanilla?
Vanilla. Wasn't allowed much Chocolate as a child due to asthma/allergies. I used to pick the chocolate off the coated pops I was served in camp as I preferred the vanilla.

3. Who would you cast to play yourself in the movie adaptation of your autobiography?
When I had a perm in the 80's, I was told I looked like Carol Kane. But I'd think I'd pick Sandra Bullock, she seems like she could play a more or less average person like me.

4. Your favorite television show of all time. Why?
Not watching much TV except Alan's shows and sports these days. I'd probably pick a show I saw recently on DVD and enjoyed though - Coupling from the BBC. Although it is sort of derived from Friends, it goes in directions that wouldn't be shown on US TV and are very funny (the birthday party episode with Jeff is a classic)

5. I have to pick five radio stations for you, and load your mp3 player. What do you recommend for me?
I'm going to be lazy and give the New York stations on my car radio:
WAXQ (Q104)
WLTW (Lite-FM)

WPLJ is "adult" top forty - no hip hop, WCBS-FM is oldies (60's-80's, sadly they no longer play 50's), WRXP is a mix of new rock and classic rock, Q104 is classic rock and Lite-FM does play some stuff I like.

If I could program a station from somewhere else, I'd put on Q107 which is Toronto classic rock (I like Toronto). Sadly WBCN from Boston is no more :(

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask about anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, if there's anything you've ever wondered or been curious about or meant to ask me, etc. Re-post this in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

[Bad username or unknown identity: from beetiger] 

Not a new meme, but a good offer to make every once in a while.

"The problem with Livejournal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don’t know about you."

So… ask. Something you think you should know, but don’t.

You know the drill, X the ones you've done.

[X] I've been to a drive-in movie theater. (in Massachusettes, I've even went to an x-rated one)
