Five Questions meme

Five questions meme. Here's how it works:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”

2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

3. You will update your journal with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Thanks ! This is a truly original and fun meme and definitely beats the hell out of a myspace survey.

Marks questions and my answers follow:

1. What three things does Richmond, Virginia have over Seattle, Washington?

A) The fact that you can order grits and sweet tea in pretty much every restaurant that’s not ethnic. Of course, this is only an advantage if you like these things.
B) Its proximity to a sandy, warm beach.
c) History is all around you. I didn’t really appreciate this when I was a kid going on field trips, but looking back, it was pretty neat to be able to see where Thomas Jefferson lived, to visit Williamsburg, and best of all, to be able to walk past buildings that were several hundred years old on a regular basis. Pioneer Square is the only real historical area in Seattle, and it’s overrun by frat boys and derelicts.

2. Would you be willing to eat one 16 ounce steak every day for a year if it meant you'd get full funding and wide theatrical distribution for your first feature film?

This is obviously tough for me for two reasons. The first is, of course, my moral objections to eating meat and the second is what such a diet would do to my health. In the first instance, since such an opportunity would positively affect the careers of not only me but my friends and colleagues, I would certainly consider putting aside my personal beliefs temporarily to make us all happy in the long run. However, in the second instance, if I died young of a heart-attack, I would not live to enjoy the spoils of a successful film. So I suppose my answer is thus: Provided I had this deal in writing, I would give it at try, but ask that if I found my health ailing, that I could either quit, or transfer the task to Faye.

3. If you had to be a contestant on a nationally televised reality TV show – in which you'd have to earnestly participate, not goof around – which one would you choose?

This is difficult because I am not at all qualified to be on any of the reality shows that I enjoy watching. I’m way too fat to be on America’s Next Top Model. I’m not formerly famous enough to be on the Surreal Life. I’m not ditzy OR geeky enough to be on Beauty and the Geek. If I could find a way to make myself fit, I would choose to be on Supergroup. Does Scott Ian need a personal assistant?

I apologize if this didn’t satisfactorily answer the question. Maybe there are more reality shows for non-famous, non-bachelorette people that I am not aware of.

4. What, in your opinion, is the worst thing about women in general (in terms of behavior, personality, etc. – not a physical trait)?

The fact that every single woman on the planet, with the possible exception of Paris Hilton, has honestly, and usually erroneously, thought she was fat. Of course I am guilty of this myself.

5. Would you rather go to jail for 10 years for a crime that all your friends and loved ones knew you didn't commit, or go to jail for 2 years for a crime you DID commit and which horrified all your friends and loved ones?

The first one.
