Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Hush

1. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener? The more nervous I am, the blabbier I become.

2. Do you take compliments well? As Oliver would say, "Please, Sir, I'd like some more."

3. Are you judgmental? I can be.

4. Do you think more about the past, present or future? The future.

5. What do you hate? Bullies! Pick on somebody your own size, why don'tcha?

6. Use three words to describe yourself. Loyal, pudgy, verbal.

7. Do you celebrate Halloween? Explain: I don't celebrate beyond handing candy out to wee ones. I think that's pretty self-explanatory.

8. If you were mixing up a witches brew, what would be in it? Six drops of the essence of terror, five drops of sinister sauce, and a tincture of tenderness.

9. If you're in a room with two beds, which one do you sleep on? The one nearest the wall.

A Birthday Tribute from an Unexpected Source

Today, October 9, is the 70th anniversary of John Lennon's birth. Google, the preeminent search engine on the Internet he never got to see, posted this tribute.

I often wonder what John would be doing today ... how he would have responded artistically to 9/11 and the war, how he would have cut through all the maudlin bs surrounding Michael Jackson's death like he did when we lost Elvis. Now let me add the web and social media to the list. Wouldn't John's tweets be a blast?

Today, I'm going to imagine how fabulous a world with John still in it would be!
