Seeing as how we’re coming up on the sixth anniversary of the birth of this blog, I figured it’s time to play the old game, Ask Me Anything!, in which you, the readers, get to Ask Me Anything!. So, go ahead, in comments, ask away: silly questions, profound questions, brain teaser questions, whatever. Try to trick me into saying something bad about George Lucas (it won’t work), or something nice about Bill Belichick (like that’ll ever happen!). I’ll collect questions for a few days, maybe until Monday or Tuesday, and then I’ll start answering.
So, Ask Me Anything!
(The last iteration of Ask Me Anything! can be found here.)
1. How has the events of the past year figured into your faith journey, however you define that?
2. Have you forgiven me for rooting for the Giants against the Bills? If the Giants don’t beat Buffalo, they don’t get into the playoffs to knock off New England.
How did you come up with the name of your blog? (I was reading Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine last night and he likes to compare the town of his youth to Byzantium.)
Which was bigger, the ancient pyramid at Cheops, or the Chrysler building?
If you could live in any writer’s fantasy universe, which would it be? What would you do there? Where in that world would you choose to make your home?
So, is Unidentified Earth coming back or what?
Where is your list of babes, I mean, Attractive Women? Have you added to it recently?
OK, it occurred to me that I don’t know that much about your childhood. If you’ve blogged about it, it was before I found your corner of the Internet.
So: how many people were in your household growing up? What was the birth order of you and your sibs, and age differentials? What jobs did your father and mother have outside the home? What were your parents’ names, and what did you call them? Did you get along with your sibs?
Did you all have dinner together? Who sat where? Was the table square, rectangular or round? (This may seem like a peculiar question, but I’ve seen it, in person, be quite revealing.)
On the playground, were you a bully, were you bullied, or did you manage to stay out of the fray? What were your best and worst subjects in school?
I think I’m done now.
I lied: Will the loss by the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl have an effect on the sale of hoodies?
Should we consider the Patriots as being 0-4 in Super Bowls for the decade? Given the revelation that the Patriots have been cheating since 2000, how happy/sad does this make you feel?
Whom do you prefer: Francis Crawford of Lymond or Nicholas DeFleury?
What if your favorite time of day and why?
That should read: What is your favorite time of day and why? Oops 🙂
