A dialogue

A: First, recommend to me:

1. a movie.

2. a book.

3. a musical artist, song, or album.

4. an artist (contemporary, manga, us comic, historical, whatever).

B: I want everyone who reads this to ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want.

C: Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends to ask you anything.

If you expect me to play that game, you go first since it was on my blog before it was on yours:P

Done and done. Now you have no more excuses - post away.

As promised...

1. Napoleon Dynamite
2. Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut Jr if you haven't already read it (I'll lend it to you if you ever want to borrow it)
3. Mr Blue Sky by ELO (from the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind soundtrack)
4. Same as I'm recommending to everyone else: JM Turner, especially his Mercury & Argus.

1. If you could sit down for a pint with anyone alive or dead, who would it be?
2. If you could live in any country in the world for two years (and finances were not an issue), where would you live?
3. Where do you see yourself on your 40th birthday?

1. Last Night (Don McKellar, Sandra Oh)

2. Lolita (Nabokov)

3. Fave song right now: "Famous" by The Magnetic Fields

4. My friend Sherwin Tjia is a phenomenal artist. He's working on a graphic novel right now. Watch for him.

Q & A

1. What's your sister doing since last I saw her? I miss and love her.
2. Where can I find your embarrassing old highschool website? You know, the one where you were dressed as a crew member from Star Trek?
3. What is your all-time favourite Sofi moment? (It's hard, I know. But try to narrow it down.)

1. General Romeo Dallaire. That guy's my hero.

2. Tamarindo, Costa Rica. I'd have a villa on the beach where I could surf, write, barbeque, smoke cigars and practice my Spanish.

3. Recently appointed as an advisor at the Privy Council Office, having gotten my doctorate in Conflict Resolution back in my early thirties. I have a nice place (not too large, but well furnished) just outside of Ottawa, on the Rideau. Married to someone kind, smart, beautiful, and adventurous. The stereotypical two kids and a dog (German shepherd, a Husky or a Lab) and a garage with something practical alongside a needlessly fast summer car.


1. Jess is doing her doctorate at Carleton in film. She's married, but no rugrats.

2. I hate you.

3. When you were caught peeking into the basement pre-cresting, and you were totally a good sport about the shenanigans that ensued. For anyone who hasn't heard this story, this included eating a handful of olives at the Pita Pit and appologizing to everyone in Stages for tarnishing the reputation of Golden Words.

Not only did I have to EAT the olives, they were rubbed quite thoroughly into my face and hair (along with vanilla softserve, if memory serves).

Also, the apology at Stages was over the DJ mic.

(Fucking Yonek.)

I shouldn't have bothered to ask 1&2... Should've known:P

A1 - The Barbarian Invasions
2- Valley of the Dolls
3 - Leonard Cohen : Un Canadian Errant
4 - Matthew Barney's Cremaster Cycle. Especially Cremaster 3. Fucking creepy, beautiful, confusing stuff. It was just in Montreal, not that I got to go see it there, but still.

B1 - How's it all going with you?
2 - How late in the year do you keep you cottage open?
3 - (Slight variation on earlier post) If you could pummel the crap out of anyone, alive or dead, who would it be?

A: First, recommend to me:

1. a movie. the last unicorn
2. a book. "american gods" by neil gaiman
3. a musical artist, song, or album. "the pointless, yet poignant, crisis of a co-ed" by dar williams - hilarious!
4. an artist (contemporary, manga, us comic, historical, whatever). magritte, dali, waterhouse, nick bantock

B: I want everyone who reads this to ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want.

1. What is one thing about yourself that you don't like?
2. What do you hate most about others?
3. If your life was like the movie "Ghostbusters," which ghostbuster would you be?

C: Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends to ask you anything.

Hey Susan,

'Sup? Long time no see!

1. It's going well. I finish my contract with the military on March 31st, and then the future is unknown for the first time since I started university. I'm applying to grad schools, but I'll still have a few months to kill in there somewhere.

2. I'm living there these days, so it's open year round. If you're in Kingston some time, you should drop by for a visit. I'm usually out there at some point over most weekends. Until ski season starts, that is. But it's surprisingly nice in winter.

3. Oh, it'd totally be Hitler. Half because he's such a dick, and half because I'd love to see the look on his face when I elbow-dropped on him from the top rope. "Och! Mein noggin!" Priceless.

I'm going to toss up a link to your blog, incidentally.

Hey Kelly,

1. On certain things, my mind changes at the drop of a hat. I end up with a really short attention span. It can cause trouble.

2. People who make blanket judgments based on surface traits. Ie. All army guys are goons, anyone who drives a nice car is a selfish prick. It's usually subtle, and not something I'd pin on anyone who's reading this, but it still drives me nuts. I can't stand malicious gossip, either - whether I'm the target or not.

3. Dr. Peter Venkman, no question.


At 8:12 p.m., Blogger Ryan said...


One other question: where is your livejournal, anyways?

At 8:34 p.m., Blogger Kelly said...

venkman's great.

i totally understand the short attention span thing because i'm easily distracted.

and there's always more than what you see on the surface of things. gossip has it's place because i enjoy hearing about good things that happen to my friends, but i agree about the malicious gossip.

i joined so i could make comments on people's journals, but it seems as if i'm posting more quizzes there than on blogger now.
