Ask me anything

I'm hitting a very busy period in my life with work and various other outside interests. That said, I'm having a hard time coming up with bloggable material.

So, my temporary solution is to put the ball in your court.

Feel free to send me a question and I'll answer it to the best of my ability. That doesn't mean I'll give an answer you'll like, but let's see how it goes.

Hopefully this will help me cut back on actually having to think for a few days.

Question #1
Is there a television show that you consider a guilty pleasure but wouldn't mention at a dinner party with people you hardly know? For instance, I love VH1's "Motormouth" but I am probably too old for this show.

Question #2
Are you enjoying the great weather we are having in Oklahoma?

Question #3
Do you think Red Dirt will ever return?

Question #4
Do you think Barry Bonds will break the homerun record this year? If he does, do you think there will be an asterisk next to his name?

Please explain to me the human condition that deludes a person's conscience to think they've the right to leave that four-wheeled battering ram of a shopping cart in the parking lot when they're done with it...can you start a grass-roots movement to license shopping cart operators...oh, no license?, well then I can only sell you what you can carry sir.....

Maybe you can get an idea or two from this page.

Thanks for the questions, Anonymous! Here goes:

1) I am addicted to TV and not ashamed to admit it. Therefore, I would proudly mention to anyone at a dinner party (whether I know them well or not) that I need to get home soon to watch my Melrose Place re-run that I recorded from SoapNet.

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of TV shows I adore that are not killing my brain cells (or at least not at the rate in which Melrose Place kills them). A few include Six Feet Under, The Apprentice, and Desperate Housewives.

But I'm a sucker for crap TV as well. In fact, I think this season my biggest pleasure (no guilt here, and no pun intended) was The Biggest Loser. I couldn't really get into all of the players, but the for the few that I did like, it was very cool to see them lose the weight.

2) There are two things I could do without when it comes to Oklahoma weather: the wind and the ice.

The wind is annoying because it makes my hair stick to my lipstick. Ugh. The ice is annoying because the whole city shuts down when there is even a hint of sleet. Double ugh.

But the summer was nice this year...very mild. And the winter has not been too bad (so far).

3) My guess is that Red Dirt will rear his ugly head any day now. His ego is far too inflated to be finished blogging about God knows what. Too many big words for me. Can't keep up.

But his need to feel inferior above others will cause his eventual return.

I shutter at the thought.

4) I don't know if Barry Bonds will break the home run record this season, but yes. If he does, there should be a gargantuan sized ASS-terisk next to his name.

Hey thanks for answering all of my questions. I really didn't except you to. As usual your smart ass attitude is outrageously funny. Personally I think reading your blog is like reading the comics. I was totally hooked by the "Look Ma, No Teeth" post.

It's absolutely no problem, Anonymous. I enjoyed answering the questions and now have some ideas for future posts.

Regarding Red Dirt's return, I am quite amused at the fact that I just realized my Freudian slip. I meant "superior," not "inferior."

Or did I?

Mick - Thanks for the question!

We must be on the same wavelength because I absolutely loathe the fact people leave their shopping carts in parking lots. If I had the proper vehicle to do so, I'd load up the cart, follow the SOB home who left it, and leave it on his front frigging porch.

Now, onto the answer. I think people leave their shopping carts for three reasons:

1) Based on the obesity rate in Oklahoma, people are just too fat and lazy to take the cart back in or to place it in the appropriate outside receptacle.

That's not to say that the abandoned shopping cart issue is reserved only to Oklahoma. I'm sure it happens everywhere. But let's face it, we could all use a little extra activity. Why not get some in by returning your cart to its appropriate area?

2) People are just plain inconsiderate. They think "let the employees come get the carts." Well, I'd like to come to those people's offices and leave a bunch of my crap lying around. I'm sure they wouldn't take too kindly to that.

3) Some people just don't take pride in themselves or their belongings. Aside from the fact that returning a cart is the right thing to do, I return them because I don't want the damn things crashing into my car. I like my car and want to keep it looking nice.

Hope these answers shed some light on the shopping cart situation. I sure enjoyed ranting about it.

I am SO with you on the cart corral! I ALWAYS take my cart back, but LISBF refuses to, saying that they pay some teenage boy to round up carts.... UM HELLOOOO! That was back when they paid those teenage boys to take your groceries out to the car for you, and they haven't done that in YEARS!

Since you're crimson.... I think P.Thompson recently implied that if he would transfer before changing positions. What's your prediction on our QB depth chart coming out of spring ball?

My initial thought is that if Paul Thompson wants to transfer, let him transfer. But if he does, I've got two words:

D'Angelo Alexander.

OK, maybe it's not fair to compare the two since one plays football and one plays basketball. But you know D'Angelo is kicking himself for leaving now that OU is kicking ass.

Plus, if I was in Paul Thompson's shoes, I wouldn't have been second on the depth chart all this time only to transfer when I'm the closest I've been to starting.

If he stays, here's my guess on how the depth chart will go when the season starts:
1) Thompson
2) Rhett Bomar
3) Tommy Grady

But what do I know? A lot of things can happen between now and then. It will definitely be interesting to see how it all comes out.

Thanks for sending a question!

Not to be the grammar police on you LilRed, but I think you meant to say shudder not shutter.

I LOVE the grammar police! And, as a tribute to the late, great Johnny Carson,

"You are correct, sir!"

Trust me, I am not offended in the least. Nothing bugs me more than when inappropriate words are used. So never hesitate to call me to the carpet for a mistake.

Thank you for showing me the error of my weighs.

I think there is an Anonymous standing in for Red Dirt (the best at policing grammer).

That would be spelled g-r-a-m-m-a-r, not g-r-a-m-m-e-r.
Should I read you your rights now?

I would say, "Book him," but after my shutter/shudder fiasco, who am I to cast stones?

Me thinks Red Dirt is posing as Anonymos. Who ever it was it felt Red Dirt correcting my grammar.

No, I'm not Red Dirt...just Anonymous. That's
spelled A-n-o-n-y-m-o-u-s. Doesn't anyone use
spell check around here?

I was on drugs when I wrote that last comment, usually I do know how to spell. Besides, I don't have spell check on the comment section.
