How are you more likely to make an important decision – by reasoning through it, or by going with your gut?
Important decisions? Well, I usually try to avoid those. If I have to, I usually start with reasoning through it – logic and all that junk. If it’s a dilemma then reasoning usually doesn’t work. That’s when I use my gut. If I still can’t decide on an appropriate course of action, then I spin the roulette wheel or use the Magic 8 ball. If I’m still unhappy with my decision, then I just run away and bury my head in the sand until it all blows over, or goes away.
If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?
Sure. If there were a Fountain of Youth, that would mean that we probably lived in magic fairy land where anything was possible. I would also drink the I Can Fly potion, the Hey Look, I’m Invisible potion, and the When I snap my fingers thousands of dollars will appear potion..Oh yeah, and let’s not forget the Anybody I want will have sex with me potion.
If you could create a sequel to one favorite (standalone) movie, which would it be? How would it build on the original?
Dark Victory with Bette Davis. She died at the end, so have fun with that.
It turns out that your neighbor on the plane/bus/train (or the person sitting at the next table at the coffee shop) is a very, very chatty tourist. Do you try to switch seat, go for a non-committal brief small talk, or make this person you new best friend?
Well, it really depends on the person. If they are talking about something I am interested in, then I might chat for a while. If they are my type, then I’ll try to seduce them.
If they are boring and/or hideous, then I’ll just ignore them somehow.
I’d move if they were just so horrible that I wanted jump out of the plane, train, or bus. If I was in a coffee shop I would just look at my phone and read a fake text message of urgency. Oops, gotta go.
So, my sister was talking to me about that Ashley Madison website, only she keeps calling it Dolly Madison. I’m like, It’s cheaters, not cupcakes.
What’s the biggest chance you ever took? Did it work out?
I flew all the way across the country to be with someone I met on the internet. It was the stupidest thing I’ve ever done. Did it work out? No! It was a week of hell. I learned a valuable lesson though. Don’t fly all the way across the country just to have sex. That’s what idiot’s do.
Tell us about the person you were when you were sixteen.
I turned 16 in 1973. I was in the band at school and I was kind of a dork. I was just a regular kid I guess. I didn’t cause too much trouble. I went to the movies a lot. I also spent a lot of time in my room listening to records. I don’t really remember it that much because it was 42 years ago. I didn’t take notes.
