Of Memes and Public Relations
This post is a hybrid. Perhaps it is the first of its kind. Perhaps it is an epic fail or the beginning of a beautiful friendship. We'll play it by ear.
My inbox runneth over with opportunity. It used to be that I would receive the occasional offer for male enhancement and perhaps a letter or two from my dearest, lord bless their soul, Nigerians who wish the weather in my atmosphere well and please to help with teh money, but that was about it. I rarely heard from anyone in the world of public relations. When I did it was a moment of zenish "I'm somebody!" But like Navin R. Johnson before me, I have found that success carries with it a price. That price is my soul. Also, your time.
In other news, I was tagged for a meme. So there's that.
Everybody's favorite messiah on ice, Mr. Black Hockey Jesus, was kind enough to tag me with a meme. Sure, we'll go with kind. The meme is below. The PR stuff is integrated. Don't worry, you won't notice it AT ALL.
WHAT ARE YOUR CURRENT OBSESSIONS?
I'm currently obsessed with breathing. Seriously. I cannot get enough of it. I'm even breathing in my sleep.
Speaking of obsession, that's still my favorite Calvin Klein stink. It smells like summer and lust. Reminds me of my teenage years when my biggest problems were acne and the wooing of women, but mostly neither of those.
WHO GAVE YOU THE BEST ORAL SEX OF YOUR LIFE?
This is something that James T. Kirk and I have in common, although I thought it was great and he thought it was tribble. I met her at Wanderlust during the Spoon set. She's from Canada. You don't know her.
WHAT'S FOR DINNER?
I'm on a strict whatever my wife makes diet. Wednesday night is Fillet Mignon or sometimes cereal. The dogs are having Dogswell brand dog food as part of a the bow-wow bailout and a nutritional breakfast. The cats are having whatever they catch.
In other news, anyone want a cat? Seriously. I'll ship.
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST FEAR AT THE MOMENT?
I'm a little nervous that we'll lose the Battle for Terra. And swine flu.
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Gipsy Kings and sighs of discontent. Some kid rock is on deck, that's rock for kids not the country/rap redneck.
IF YOU WERE A GOD/GODDESS, WHAT WOULD YOU BE?
Is this a trick question? I'd be a god. Duh. Probably the one you worship. Sacrifice or big, hot mountain go boom, bitches.
And if the false gods of science are more your thing...
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY SPOTS?
Directly under the mistletoe. I spend every Easter there. At Christmas I go to Easter Island of Misfit Toys.
My favorite Mother's Day spot is Jackman's Flowers who are currently celebrating 100 years in the biz. Enter the code "honea15" and save 15% - nobody loves a deal like Mom!
WHAT ARE YOU READING RIGHT NOW?
Funny timing on this one as the next group of PR emails are all publishers and authors wanting me to give away and/or review books. I might read some of them. I'll keep you posted.
In the meantime, I'm not reading anything - despite the 10+ books on my nightstand in various stages of completion. I'm too busy writing (IOUs and bad checks).
WHAT ARE FOUR WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU?
Tall. Scented. Sell-out.
WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
I live guilt-free. Also, oblivious. For the record, I've never been convicted.
WHO OR WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?
Usually something pretty funny, like comedians or the misfortune of others. NOT DANE COOK.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPRING THING TO DO?
Spending hours of my valuable time on memes, taking long walks on the beach and collecting memories like so many ladybugs.
WHERE ARE YOU PLANNING TO TRAVEL NEXT?
I've got a full itinerary this summer: Tucson, Chicago, L.A. (I'll live elsewhere by then), and possibly Africa. I use UpTake for all my travel needs and so can you!
WHAT IS THE BEST THING YOU ATE OR DRANK LATELY?
My wife made some tasty enchiladas the other night. The beer was good, too.
Yes, I'm out of links.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU WERE TIPSY?
At Gatsby's party. It was great.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE EVER MOVIE?
Man, I can't pick just one. My favorites include: Star Wars, Cool Hand Luke, Princess Bride, Iron Giant, Il Postino, Pale Rider, Shawshank Redemption, When Harry Met Sally, Peter Pan, and anything with porn.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST LIFE LESSON YOU'VE LEARNED FROM YOUR KIDS?
This should cover it.
WHAT SONG CAN'T YOU GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD?
I really love this one. What can I say, I'm a softy.
Thanks for playing!
