More questions:

1.) If you could say one thing to any person living or dead, who would it be, and what would you say?

2.) Name something seemingly harmless that makes you feel all choked up.

3.) Describe an interaction with a company that absolutely infuriated you.

4.) Coffee or tea?

5.) What's the one article of clothing that you could not part with? Why?

The usual rules. Pass on a few if you want to, and post anonymously if you have to.

1. To Bobby Kennedy, 1968: "Hey, look out, there's someone who's going to shoot you in LA." (I think the world would be much different, and better, had he not been shot on the campaign trail.)

2. I don't get choked-up without a good reason... but it usually comes with being able to feel others' pain or loss. Listening to "The Last Post" on Rememberance Day usually gets me.

3. I've generally had good luck in dealing with companies, so far.

4. Coffee, I love thee.

5. I have a sweatshirt from being on my high school's student council in OAC that's in remarkably good shape. I don't wear it often, as to preserve it... it'll be turning 10 this spring and it still looks pretty good. (Sadly, the high school it honours no longer exists.)

1) This makes me think of the Fight Club Question that Brad Pitt asks Edward Norton "If you could fight any one person living or dead, who would it be"... The answer... Ghandi.

Now... If I could say one thing to any one person?... Hmmm... I'd warn Lou Gehrig about that darned disease.

2) Hmmm... I agree with JTL... "Last Post" can get to me... sometimes.

3) For this answer you would have to look at the whole of my pers file on base. For those of you who are not familiar with Army jargon, suffice it to say my entire interaction with the army infuriated me!

4) Tea... not often, but most definately tea.

5)Hmmm... lots... My hockey jerseys (Team Canada X2, Tragically Hip X1, Toronto Maple Leafs X1, Shoeless Joes X1) and my leather jackets. Also, I love my cherry red zoot suit and all my band concert shirts... lots of those!

1. I would tell my Dad, who passed away in 1997 that I love him and miss him terribly.
2. I don’t really have an answer for this one..other than those Hallmark commercials around Christmas time.
3. When we first built our house, I called the cable company to run lines so we can have TV, they told me that they have to send someone out to survey our property before they run the lines out…I waited for a month before calling again to find out where they were…they gave me this excuse that they were really busy and it would take alittle longer than usual. I ended up calling them every month for 6 months and nothing. It has been 3 years now and I am still waiting! We got Directv instead. The kids were going crazy with no TV!
4. COFFEE
5. I have my Dad’s old coat from when he was in the Navy. It has to many memories!

1. I would like to talk to Princess Di and tell her "You go, girlfriend. Those stodgey twits didn't deserve you!"
2. Homeless cats.
3. Most of my interactions with CIBC's student services have been real pains. Can't they get their stories straight? I get a different answer to the same question every single time.
4. Neither. However, I love iced tea and coffee-flavoured stuff.
5. Hm...I have a really pretty shirt I bought when I was at my thinnest. Although it's way too small, I keep it around so I have a goal to reach.

1.) I'd like to sit down with my grandfather and thank him for being such an incredible man, and a great role model, even after all these years. He passed away back when I was in 8th grade.

2.) Reading the end of "Where the Red Fern Grows." That, and sometimes the reality of the news will hit me full force.

3.) I stopped going to Blockbuster Video after they sent a collection agency after me for $11.45. Stupid faceless corporations.

4.) I'm big into coffee. I have my own grinder and I keep raw bags of beans in the freezer. It's one of the things that I really enjoy bringing back when I travel. Also, I'm a little bit odd in that I believe that brewed coffee is a lot like fine wine - it gets better with age.

5.) I have an Old Navy hoodie that's made out of fleece that I wear when I'm out at the cottage. It's ridiculously comfortable, and smells like pipe tobacco. So good.

1) Cam - why?
2) Hm. I can't think of anything at the moment.
3) The other night I was ordering Swiss Chalet for dinner. I was in the office. Apparently there were a lot of problems with their computer and entering in the address. So it took forever, and I don't blame the people that I talked to, but maybe they're is too much reliance on technology and having everything fit into a certain way.... So I was more infuriated with the computer systems that all the restaurants seem to be using now than with the company itself.
4) I love coffee, but rarely drink it. I drink tea more often than coffee. Both, I guess.
5) Well, my blue hoodie from high school is still kicking around, dried paint, zipper falling apart, and all. I dunno, it's just a hoodie I've always liked.
