Joe Blog's Interview #61 No Fear!

Age : 30 - something
Location : Canada - but I've been around the block
Vocation : It changes Philosophy : "Life is about growth and change. Why fear it?"

Sum up what your blog is about.
This blog is about life as I see it. Some of the postings are my commentaries of society. Other posts are slight variations of truth and others are pure fiction. Why "Not Fearing Change"? Well life is about growth and change. Why fear it? We spend so much of our life in "fear", let's escape and be free...

Why are you doing your blog?
I enjoy writing and sharing thoughts with others. I also like the virtual community I'm building.


What's the funniest entry on your blog?
Humour is really a matter of perspective - what i think is hillarious has people calling me to ask if i'm "really okay?"
Check out - Thursday, January 04, 2007 Title: My fave blog posts that I've done

A mixture of narrative story telling. Editorials. Social catchings....

What do people commonly say about your site?
"Good post!" "You're a good writer" "Don't listen to them"

Why should someone visit your site?
Well, i try and write about things a single professional has to balance: Sex, Love, Career, Future decisions etc. So if you like watching chaos this is a good place to check out. As my reader states: " i think it's a great way to watch one person's struggle to find it all"

Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
A little of column A and a little of column B.

and
http://ryansrage.blogspot.com/

If you could invite anyone to a dinner party who would it be and why?
Karl Marx, George Bush Jr, Hunter S. Thompson

Karl and George would go at it - and Hunter well how could you not - he would turn the party into chaos. I may add Johnny Depp - just for some yum.

Take the job with the pay cut - it will serve you better in the long run.

Absolutely - have traveled all over N.America; Mexico; Europe; Australia; NZ.

The best was when I was on business in Victoria, BC, Canada. I met a woman while having some food at the bar. She was reading the new yorker. We started speaking. She gave me her number since I would be in town over the weekend - in case I wanted to go out and see the town. I decided the next day to drive down to Oregon (12 hours) to surf the next day. I called her and asked to come. She said yes. We had the best weekend ever - two strangers just cruising and learning about one another.

Now it's your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.
What's your biggest fear?

Joe Blogs : Not being able to achieve, falling short of what I expect of myself.

Joe Blog's Interview #60 Is This Tom Hanks?

Name : Miles Grant
Age : 29
Location : Arlington, VA (right outside Washington, DC)
Vocation : stickin' it to the man, working in the press office of the government ethics watchdog
Philosophy : Would it be shallow to quote Ferris Bueller here? I hope not, ‘cause I’m about to. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” (Close second: “Only the meek get pinched. The bold survive.”)




Sum up what your blog is about.
I try to keep it focused on local environmental issues and my environmental views & experiences. But I also try to localize national and world news, and stray into topics that are only vaguely environmental but interest me (i.e. smoking bans in bars/restaurants).

Why are you doing your blog?
Trying to lighten up the environmental debate. Most environmental blogs are serious to the point of being depressing. And that’s OK because many environmental issues, especially climate change, are serious to the point of being depressing. But if you can mix in a little humor and a few pictures of Barney from The Simpsons, I think the general public is more receptive to the message.

What’s the funniest entry on your blog?
Really, any time you can talk about environmentally-themed porn, that has to win in a cakewalk, doesn’t it?

What is your writing style?
I write like I talk, conversational, short & to the point. Lots of sarcasm. Lots of unnecessary links to random interesting things Google points me to.

How much would you sell your blog for?
Surprisingly little. I’m an ideas venture capitalist. If someone offered me $100 for the blog, I’d sell it and start a new blog on something else. And blow the $100 on expensive booze and cheap women (or cheap booze and expensive women).


What do people commonly say about your site?

Liberals really enjoy it, but don’t leave comments, they just tell me/email me about it later. Conservatives say I worry too much, and LOVE to leave comments telling me all about it.

Why should someone visit your site?
There seem to be very few environmental blogs that aren’t organized around trying to draw you to join/give to their organization. The Green Miles has a point of view, but it doesn’t have an agenda.


Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
Dude, who’s even arguing this at this point? This is like asking, “Iraqi weapons of mass destruction: Myth or reality?” I can’t even discuss this rationally. Let’s move on.

Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
Gristmill. AMERICAblog. DCist. Seth Mnookin. Rogan Kersh. What’s Up Arlington.

What would you have written on your tombstone?
Died Tragically Rescuing His Family From The Remains Of A Destroyed Sinking Battleship

Would you go on a reality TV show?
Of course, but only to be the bad guy. Like Santino from Project Runway or tobacco-chewing Chris from season 3 of The Apprentice. Just a total douche who deliberately pissed people off in order to get the most face time possible.

What one website would you recommend and why?
http://www.thighswideshut.org/. I measure a site’s value by the yardstick of what it provides that no other site can give. And here I can get everything from an interview with Lily Allen to Oscar picks to pictures of semi-clad Bond girls.

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
Was out at a bar after the Washington Wizards basketball game last Saturday night when two drunk guys stumbled in and sat down across from us. A few minutes later a woman came in and rushed up to one of the guys and cocked her arm back. I looked up quickly to see if she was kidding around – one glance at the look of anger on her face delivered the answer: Not kidding. CRACK! She slapped the guy across the face and said something about how she knew about the other woman. He grabbed her by the sleeve for a minute, but then let go and she stormed off. All I could think was, “He better not touch her, but she can get in as many whacks as she needs to. No man gets slapped unless they did something to deserve it.”

Had any supernatural experiences?
Once. In October 2004. But if you’re not a Red Sox fan, you wouldn’t understand.

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
Stop trying to find happiness or professional satisfaction in the TV news business. It’s sucking your soul and the mainstream media is run by The Man. You’ll be much happier spending your days fighting for what you believe in.

Can you tell us a joke?
What do you do to an elephant with three balls?
You walk him and pitch to the rhino.

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actresses, comedian, song and film.
Alan Rickman, Charlize Theron, Chris Rock, “The Sweater Song,” “Fight Club.”

What’s the most incredible thing that’s ever happened to you?
Not to get too deep, but waking up this morning (and every morning before that). If you don’t appreciate every single day you’re lucky enough to walk this earth, you end up wasting your time on the little stuff, like spending your whole day angry because those wankers at Starbucks gave you a WHOLE MILK latte instead of a SKIM latte. Little bastards.

And finally, what would you wish for with 3 wishes?
Reversing global warming is tempting, isn’t it? But that would mean mankind would just resume mucking it up from Square One. I’d rather solve that one more organically. I’ll go with time travel so I could go drinking with a young Albert Einstein, unlimited time to work for my favorite causes, and of course the ability to make a woman’s clothes fall off.

Now it’s your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.
Favorite British TV comedy of all time?

Joe Blogs : Alan Partridge with Steve Coogan is definitely up there, and I'm looking forward to the movie coming out soon. I enjoyed One Foot In The Grave, and Father Ted. Also The Office, and Extras are enjoyable. Going back some years, Fawlty Towers, and Some Mothers Do 'Ave Em was very funny. Though I must say my current favourite TV comedy is Curb Your Enthusiasm with Larry David. Oh and the cartoon series Family Guy.

Joe Blog's Interview #59 Get Your Melons Out!

Name : Meloncutter
Age : 47
Location : Deep South
Vocation : Produce Guy
Philosophy : Cut the Fruit.

Sum up what your blog is about for us.
Pretty much it's about what ever comes to mind but flatulence is very high on the list of topics.


Why are you doing your blog?
It's a hobby I guess. Keeps me sane and I blow off some steam. I look at many things from the perspective of being male, married, and working class, so I guess I take it that direction most of the time.

How much would you sell your blog for?
It depends on how big her boobs are.

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
Gee! Thats what I do in my blog.

Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
I read all of them on my blogroll daily and I surf through several others that I have bookmarked over the last year.

What's the funniest entry on your blog?
Dang thats a tough one. I try to put some humor in all of my postings. There are a few that I bend to a more serious note but generally, I write to entertain others and offend thier senses in a funny way. Sometimes I even succeed.

What is your writing style?
When I was a police officer they taught us to write all of our reports at an 8th grade level so that juries could understand our reports. I think I dropped my writing style down a few more grades from that so most bloggers can read and understand what I have written. (I bet that offended someone didn't it?)

Why should someone visit your site?
Hopefully they will be laughing and mildly offended when they leave (in a good way). I keep my postings generally PG-13. I encourage participation in my Wednesday ASK THE MELONCUTTER postings where I take questions from readers and give them the benefit of my limited knowledge of a vast number of topics.

What do people commonly say about your site?
"I just spit my coffee all over my monitor when I read that."

If you could recommend one website, what would it be and explain why.
I would have to say that for a blogging fool like me, I would push the Bestest Blog Of All Time. I have met many other bloggers that I would have never met through that site and with all those contacts, it has made blogging fun and entertaining for me.

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actresses, film, song, and comedian.
Actor : Morgan Freeman. I just like his style.
Actress : It depends on her boobies and how much I can see of them at that moment.
Film : I love the Lord Of The Rings Series.
Song : I am a musician. I love classic rock but play many genres.
Comedian? I can't just name one. There are so many good ones out there.

Tell us a joke.
Take my wife..... Please..!!

What would you wish for with 3 wishes?
World Peace. Perpetual free non polluting energy. A trip into space.

Joe Blog's Interview #58 Talk To The Hand!

Name : Lee
Age : 38 (in February)
Location : Virginia
Vocation : Undecided.
Philosophy : "You can only be young once. But you can always be immature." Borrowed from Dave Barry

Sum up what your blog is about.
Stuff I like, stuff I don't like, my art, random crucifying of Tom Cruise…stuff. I'm quite unfocused.

Why are you doing your blog?
Cuz I needed a place to keep all my stuff?




What's the funniest entry on your blog?
Ummm….not sure. I liked this one: http://studiotwentythree.blogspot.com/2006/12/my-roommate-god-love-her.html

What is your writing style?
I'd have to say "childish with a hint of juvenile." I'm also a big fan of run-on sentences. Is that a style?

How much would you sell your blog for?
Much less than you might imagine.

What do people commonly say about your site?
I bet you're funnier in person.

Why should someone visit your site?
To find out what an honest-to-the-gods ninja does with her day when she's not fulfilling her ninjanese duties.

Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
Puuuhlease. We suck.

Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
Too many! So many that I frequently forget to do those every day things that people do to get through life, such as work, shower, do laundry, cook dinner, grocery shop, etc. Please see "Blogs that I Stalk" on the left-hand side.

What would you have written on your tombstone?
If I have a tombstone I am gonna be super-pissed in the way that only a ninja can and start believing in an after-life so that I can come back and haunt the crap outta the people who dared to put me in a little box in the cold, maggot-infested ground. Did I mention my love of the run-on sentence?

Would you go on a reality TV show?
God, no.

What one website would you recommend and why?
To be serious for a moment, I would recommend http://www.certifiedhumane.org/, a lighter look at the intense life of the ninja.

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
The other day, I started a story (I swear I am not making this up) with, "I'll never forget the time that…" and I forgot the rest of the sentence. I never remembered what I would never forget. I am profound. Or maybe I'm profoundly retarded. One of those.

Had any supernatural experiences?
As a goddess myself, I AM a supernatural experience. I don't have 'em, I give 'em. http://studiotwentythree.blogspot.com/2006/08/new-religion.html

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
I would of sat myself down, looked myself right in the eye and said, "Honey, take your ex-husband to the cleaners. Don't be so nice. He is going to remarry and lose his effing mind."

Can you tell us a joke?
No, but I can cut and paste with the best of them: http://studiotwentythree.blogspot.com/2007/01/joke-from-my-father.html

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actresses, comedian, song and film.
I really like Amelie, that French flick, but I wouldn't say that girl is my favorite actress and I don't know if she's even got a song. Heck, I don't even know her name. I can only name my least favorite actor, Tom Cruise and I especially dislike his version of War of the Worlds movie. He is a creepy warlock and he must be stopped.

What's the most incredible thing that's ever happened to you?
No way I can narrow it down to one. I've lived a charmed life. Becoming a mother is pretty far up there and certainly the most life changing.

And finally, what would you wish for with 3 wishes?
Can't. Do. It. So. Exhausted. From. All. These. Questions. Head. Owie. Oh. My. Head.

Now it's your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.
Okay, if you were miraculously turned into a female for the day, what would you do first?

Joe Blogs : Have a good look in the mirror.

Joe Blog's Interview #57 Let's Take This Outside!

Name : Lauren Mitchell
Age : 24
Location : D.C metro area
Vocation : Professional Undergraduate
Philosophy : Don’t take anything too seriously, especially yourself.





Sum up what your blog is about.
Poetry, poetics, tick-bites, university bureaucracy, delusional conspiracy theorists, nonlinear dynamics, monkey stew, gutter punks, evil & not-so-evil editors, the intricacies of book-writing, the perils of navigating western medicine, why “Need for Speed: Most Wanted” is a muse-killer.

Why are you doing your blog?
Because poetry is awesome and fun, but most people think it’s evil and lame. I’d like to maybe change some minds…and if all else fails, at least blogging helps me procrastinate when I have a paper due.

What’s the funniest entry on your blog?
It depends on your definition of funny…I really like the “automatic gothic poetry generator” post.

What is your writing style?
In general, I try to spell correctly. I give myself bonus points for proper grammar.

How much would you sell your blog for?
How much are you offering?

What do people commonly say about your site?
“What’s a Tapir?”

Why should someone visit your site?
Because poetry is really cool once you get to know it. Plus, reading about my life is like watching a train wreck in slow-motion.

Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
It’s a sad, sweaty reality, friends. Put down the hair-spray, and step away from your Hummers.
Are there any blogs you enjoy reading?
Yes. My favorites are:
Poetry Snark
Chronically Sick but Still Thinking
Ai+Alife+Aculture

What would you have written on your tombstone?
“You’re standing on my head!”

Would you go on a reality TV show?
Yes, but only if I could be the smart, bitchy one.

What one website would you recommend and why?
http://www.homestarrunner.com/. Because Strong Bad is my future baby daddy.

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
A rabbi, a priest and a stripper walk into a pillow factory…no, wait: a rabbi, a stripper and a donkey walk into a pillow factory. No…um, I forget how it goes.

Had any supernatural experiences?
Yes. I have seen Dick Cheney in the flesh. He walks among us.

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
“Don’t smoke that!”

Can you tell us a joke?
A duck walks into a bar and asks the bartender “Do you have any grapes?”
“No, duck, this is a bar,” the bartender responds, and the duck leaves.
The next day the duck comes in again and asks the same bartender “Do you have any grapes?”
Annoyed, the bartender responds, “No duck, I told you yesterday, this is a bar. Now leave me alone!” The duck leaves again.
But the next day the duck returns and asks the same bartender “Do you have any grapes?” Now the bartender is furious and tells the duck, “No. We don’t have any grapes! If you come in here asking for grapes again, I’m gonna nail your feet to the floor!” The duck leaves again.
The next day the duck comes back into the bar and asks the same bartender, “Do you have any nails?”
“No” the bartender responds.
Then the duck asks, “Do you have any grapes?”

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actresses, comedian, song and film.
I generally dislike actors/actresses, they’re always so self-important and think they’re making some great contribution to humanity…which I don’t agree with. I do like Jon Stewart though…and I can’t watch “Team America” often enough.

What’s the most incredible thing that’s ever happened to you?
Not getting picked last for softball

And finally, what would you wish for with 3 wishes?
1. More wishes
2. My own private island, replete with cabana boys
3. An official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock

Now it’s your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.
Dónde está la Biblioteca?

Joe Blogs : Sorry, I don't know where the library is luv.

Name : Emma Kaufmann
Age : 36
Location : Baltimore, MD
Vocation : to make people laugh.
Philosophy : I drink therefore I am.

Sum up what your blog is about. The blog tells it like it is, cuts through the crap cake, basically gets to the jelly inside the jelly donut.

Why are you doing your blog?
I'm an ex pat British woman living in the USA who has two kids who scream a lot. To prevent myself going nuts I started blogging.


What’s the funniest entry on your blog?
My stint working for a blind dominatrix is, I think, a bit of a classic:
http://mommyhasaheadache.blogspot.com/2006/09/switch-bitch.html

What is your writing style?
Some people say I am serious about being funny. I like to make my posts literary, thought provoking and thoughtful, as well as making people piss their pants laughing.

How much would you sell your blog for?
$5,000. Any offers?

What do people commonly say about your site?
That they spluttered into their coffee when they read one of my posts.

Why should someone visit your site?
Because you will always find something worth reading, and that's a guarantee. It's as close you can get to being inebriated, without alcohol.

Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
Reality, but I say thank God, because until last week I was wearing a t-shirt.
Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
http://www.moobz.com/ one of the best written and funniest blogs anywhere
http://www.stevenovak.blogspot.com/ black humor, nasty jokes, I love this guy!
http://overnighteditor.typepad.com/ There is simply nothing more to say than, this man is a genius.

What would you have written on your tombstone?
She was a slacker but had a good heart

Would you go on a reality TV show?
Yes, I'd love to go on Extreme Makeover, but just to have my boobs lifted, which isn't extreme enough. Also I'm not ugly as a toad. You have to make an ass of yourself and have weird stuff done like vaginal rejuvenation surgery and Brazilian butt implants, and my vagina is quite rejuvenated as it is, also my butt is big enough too. So that dream may never come true.....

What one website would you recommend and why?
http://www.kevincharnas.com/
he makes me pee my pants

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
My husband, John, who does research on brains which frequently requires him hanging out in morgues and getting brains out of heads and scanning them, has been eagerly awaiting the death of a seventy-two year old woman. The woman, who had signed her brain over to medical research, has an extremely rare brain disease, and John and his colleagues have been dying to get their hands on this rare brain and its diseased cerebellum. So, yesterday morning he gets the call that the woman is dead, and his eyes light up with excitement. The way he told it, there was mass hysteria in the morgue as he and his colleagues high fived each other with glee. I just hope to God there were no grieving relatives about to witness the spectacle.It reminds me of that scene from Borat. Borat is in a hotel and the manager brings him up a telegram and reads it out to him. Borat, looking morose, "You are telling me my wife is dead?""Yes sir, I'm afraid that is what it seems to say."Borat grins. "My wife is dead. High five!"He and the manager high five. Priceless!

Had any supernatural experiences?
No. I bloody well wish I had.

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
I gave up giving myself advice a long time ago since I never take it.

Can you tell us a joke?
After attending a party for his boss, the life of the party was nursing a king-size hangover and asked his wife, "What the hell happened last night?"
"As usual, you made an ass of yourself in front of your boss," replied the wife.
"Piss on him," answered the husband.
"You did," said the wife, "and he fired you."
"Well, f**k him," said the husband.
"I did, and you go back to work in the morning."

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actresses, comedian, song and film.
Favorite actor: Owen Wilson (I would very much like to sleep with him...and he is, of course, a very talented actor).
Favorite actress : Cate Blanchett (best actress alive)
Comedian : Sacha Baron Cohen

What’s the most incredible thing that’s ever happened to you?
Losing weight this past year and transforming myself into a Super MILF!!

And finally, what would you wish for with 3 wishes?
To become an international superstar
To become a millionaire
To publish a comedy book

Now it’s your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.
If you could have plastic surgery what part of yourself would you change?

Joe Blogs : I don't know about change. But I might add a few parts, another arm, a couple more legs, and some wings. Oh and a deadly Scorpions tail.

Joe Blog's Interview #55 Using The Force Wisely

Name : Rebecca Grabill
Age : *Slap!* You should know better.
Location : A purple club chair about twenty feet from the nearest bottle of wine ... ah, make that two inches. Better.
Vocation : Writer-photo-junkie-homeschooling-Mom by day, passed out in a near-comatose state of exhaustion by night.
Philosophy : To Use the Force Wisely. i.e., use, appreciate, love, enjoy the gifts I've been given.

Sum up what your blog is about.
There's a quote "of making many books, there is no end." It's all about meaninglessness, the meaninglessness of making books and that's what I'm writing about. Well, more than that - I'm trying to find meaning in the meaninglessness - of life, diapers, making books. Whatever.

Why are you doing your blog?
Peer pressure. No, really. Every few days I threaten to delete the thing but I have people who actually read it. Imagine that.

What's the funniest entry on your blog?
The funniest for me is this one, White And Nerdy And Crazy simply because the event in question was too freaking hysterical for words. Which maybe didn't translate into words so well. But even if it didn't, the YouTube link kills me every time.

What is your writing style?
Hopefully better than my fashion style, which at the moment is red plaid pajama bottoms, purple turtle neck and blue and gray striped fleece pullover (or "jumper," as you might call it - who knew I could get an education from Bridget Jones). Oh, and white athletic socks. Can it be worse than that?

How much would you sell your blog for?
Quit dreaming. You can't afford me.

Why should someone visit your site?
I'm still trying to figure that out. Oh! I know. Because it's so fun to click on the stuff in the sidebar and watch it appear and disappear. I like to add sound effects. Click--zoooop! Click--zeeeeep! (um, maybe that part shouldn't be published, do you think?)

Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
(Am I missing something here? Doesn't the earth travel around the sun and tilt on an axis or something so it's closer to the sun or farther and that's what causes climate changes? Was that theory debunked? Tell me, because I really don't want to come off as ignorant, but I haven't kept up with the latest science so well...)

Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
I don't get around to this one often, but it is truly hysterical. I'm glad today (especially today with the pjs and socks) that I'm no celebrity. Go Fug Yourself
What would you have written on your tombstone?
Uh, pepperoni and green peppers and -- wait. You mean an epitaph. What was I thinking. At fifteen I might have said, "Live fast, die young, leave a good-looking corpse." But now it would be something schmaltzy, having to do with my hubby and kids.

Would you go on a reality TV show?
Um, no.
What one website would you recommend and why?
Kelly's Closet because sh*t happens.

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
A few months ago I was reading a book while my middle child played with toys. He babbled away to himself, as two-year-olds do, just a jumble of nonsense. But I stopped, listened. He was saying, "F*ck. Sh*t. F*ck. Sh*t," over and over and over. I panicked. Where's he learn that? Did I really swear that much? I knew I did sometimes, but maybe it was more than I thought and ... and ... I put my book down and watched him. He kept right on cursing, oblivious, but then I began to notice what he was doing. When he said, "F*ck" he would pick up his stuffed animal, and then he would set it down again with a determined, "Sh*t." The animal was a stuffed frog. And he wasn't cursing, he was saying "Frog. Sit. Frog. Sit."

Had any supernatural experiences?
Only if you consider finding a drowned rat in your toilet otherworldly.

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
When you see those cute plaid pajamas at the clothing store, yes, the ones hanging right there by the old-lady-fuzzy slippers - walk away. Take a breath. And. Just. Walk. Away.

Can you tell us a joke?
A string walked into a bar and the bartender said, "Hey, yer a string. We don't serve strings here." And he threw the string out. The string wrapped himself up like a pretzel and messed up his top. Then he went back inside the bar. The bartender peered at him. "You ain't a string, are ya?" The string shook his head. "I'm a frayed knot."

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actresses, comedian, song and film.
Anthony Hopkins. Emma Thompson. I have no idea. The Wexford Carol and Huron 'Beltane' Fire Dance by Loreena McKennitt. Too numerous to name.

What's the most incredible thing that's ever happened to you?
My youngest sleeping through the night.

And finally, what would you wish for with 3 wishes?
More wishes, of course!

Now it's your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.
What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything?

Joe Blogs : Google it.

Age : is this a trick question??
Location : The beautiful Kern County mountains in CA
Vocation : you mean, like what I want to be when I grow up? Oh yea, alpaca rancher, super mom, wife extraordinaire... that sums it all up.
Philosophy : You might as well laugh kid, it ain't gonna get any easier. Nope, that's no it... oh yea! Life's tough, if we stick together and help others, who have less than we do, we can only get stronger. And laugh a lot!

Sum up what your blog is about.
It's just me, talking about whatever tickles my funny bone, sharing stories about my lovely alpacas, laughing at myself, and bringing pieces of that in my life. I've had lots of tribulations in my life and humor has been the only way to get me through it. If I can share some of that with others, and it makes you laugh- my job is done.

Why are you doing your blog?
Therapeutic value and a tax write off (I haven't exactly figured that last one out yet)

Whats the funniest entry on your blog?
Hmmmm.... I don't know. I don't like to talk about myself much so you decide. But my personal favorite is "Twas the night before Christmas" It kind of shows my funny and serious side. Maybe I'm like a fine wine, I get better as I age. Or, maybe I'm like an old cheese and just get stinkier, who knows?

What is your writing style?
Kind of a Heinz 57 variety. A little humor, a little seriousness, some posts are informative and some require duct taping your head so it doesn't explode. In all seriousness, I love to write and share. So, you may tune in one day and laugh, and the next day cry- visit often so you don't miss out! :))

How much would you sell your blog for?
$1.5 million- - - whoa, I think I hurt myself typing that so fast. Why,know someone who wants to buy it?

What do people commonly say about your site?
You mean someone reads it? Kidding! I don't know, I have really enjoyed the friends I have made, and people met through this blog, they are very supportive and encouraging. They say things like-"You're so funny!" and "I want to name my first (or 5th) child after you!" They don't? Hmmm.... have to train them harder I guess.

Why should someone visit your site?
Because they can, wait a minute, I was having a mom moment there.... Really, it is just too hard to go through life all serious and stuff. My blog is all about life and how tragically-terrifying-exhilarating-grief stricken-pee your pants-laugh out loud funny it is. There have been many,many bad things, and bad choices that have occurred in my life, but I'm still here and I'm in one piece. If I can share my experiences and help someone else in the process, that's what it's all about. If this appeals to you, I guess I'll see you there.

Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
I don't know.... I have been using my blow dryer a lot more lately, think there's a correlation??

Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
I love Sarah Flake at http://hollywoodflakes.blogspot.com she is really a riot! I am a regular stalker, er, I mean reader. Also, creatively I would have to say I love the beautiful imagination of Plumpie Mousie at http://plumpiemousie.blogspot.com It's like a glimpse into another world.
What would you have written on your tombstone?
Loving mother, caring sister, devoted daughter, good friend. Wow, that's a lot to live up to, I'd better get busy!

Would you go on a reality TV show?
Not if it involves eating anything still alive, or high places. But if I get to meet Leif Garrett- I'm all over it.

What one website would you recommend and why?
Well, I obsessively check the weather on NOAA but that's not for everyone. I don't know, I visit a lot of gaming sites.... I'm not being a big help on this question am I?

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
Okay, once a looong time ago I was dating this guy who's dad thought I was a loser. Since I was young I have had my two front teeth bonded or veneereddue to sensitivity (and a huge gap!).The day before my bonding cracked and a whole slice of my tooth cracked right off. I mean, the gap was apparent and even worse because before putting the last bonding treatment on they actually widened the gap. In desperation I super glued it back on because, of course, it was a holiday, AND a weekend and I couldn't get into the dentist for two more days.It worked great! You couldn't even tell, it was perfect.

So here I am eating and trying to make the best impression I can. Someone tells a horrible joke and I laugh too loudly, then take a bite of my mashed potatoes, chew and swallow.... and find out to my horror that the piece of my tooth is missing. I think quickly, surely I would have felt the crunch,right? I mean mashed potatoes aren't crunchy!! I panic and cover my mouth, everyone asks what's wrong and I explain behind my hand. Of course his father wants to see, and does everything but rip away my hand from my mouth. I am just totally embarrassed and trying to convince my boyfriend it's time to leave when his father picks up his martini glass to take a drink. The strangest expression crosses his face,and I see him hold the glass up to the light. "Um, Rachelle, I think I found your missing part." he says. Yup, sure enough, there it was in all it's glory soaking up the vodka and having a great time. I manage to *not* crawl under a rock, get the piece back, his wife finds the super glue and I consider locking myself in the bathroom and never coming out. Carpe Dentum indeed.

Had any supernatural experiences?
Yes, about six months after my grandmother died and I was struggling with grief and a cocaine addiction, I was laying on the couch in my mother's house depressed. I suddenly smelled my grandmother's perfume, and my whole body felt like it was getting a warm hug. I couldn't move, and was filled with peace. The perfume faded after a while and the sensation of being hugged went away. I went through everything in the house looking for anything that smelled like her perfume- Avon's Rose is a Rose- but my mother assured me there wasn't anyone there, she hated that smell and would never have it around. It was Grandma. I frequently see people from the corner of my eye, and once there was a man in white walking on my lawn in the middle of the night. The veil is very thin at times my friends, very thin.

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
Treasure the ones you love in your life. Tell them you love them and how much you appreciate them as often as you can- and never take their presence for granted.

Can you tell us a joke?
Nope, not too good at that, but how about a random fact?
In Nebraska it is illegal for bar owners to sell beer unless they are simultaneously brewing a kettle of soup. Go figure.

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actresses, comedian, song and film.
Danny Kaye, Doris Day, John Bytheway, Yikes, I didn't plan that rhyming streak there! Oceano by Josh Groban. Um.... movies are hard- I have too many that I can't live without. Currently The Incredibles is a big fave.

What’s the most incredible thing that’s ever happened to you?
The fact that I lived through my terribly destructive addictions and found God again. Funny, He was right there waiting for me.

What would you wish for with 3 wishes?
World peace.... oops, pageant moment, sorry...
1) For people to be kinder to each other
2) to be more like my Savior
3) to be a better house keeper (yup, for reals)

Now it’s your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.
Do you wear a pair of those cool shades like Joe Cool (aka- Snoopy) does? Cool beans if you do. And thanks for the interview!

Joe Blogs : Not much use for sunglasses in England, unfortunately. I like your funny story, Cool Beans!

What would you have written on your tombstone?
I still rock ;-)

Would you go on a reality TV show?
The big question is more like: would they dare to put me on there? I could ask some very bothering questions. Or start a behaviour trend that would be so outrageous that the whole society would be up-side-down.... (and actually functional for once?) Or I would just lay there eating olives and drink gigglewater all days and how fun would that be for others than me?

What one website would you recommend and why?
Only one? Mission Impossible!

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.

Joe Blog's Interview #52 The Life Of Chantel

Name : Chantel.
Age : 34
Location : Portland, OR
Vocation : Corporate.
Philosophy : If it feels good, over do it.

Sum up what your blog is about.
Unnecessary resources from an unlikely source.”My blog started as a writing blog then, a day in the life blog. Now it’s a day in the life blog with photos, recipes, commentary. Laughter and tears; something for everyone.

Why are you doing your blog?
I can’t help it. Its and outlet for my extra energy and it’s a place for me to exercise my writing skills.

What’s the funniest entry on your blog?
Look Ma I'm On Top Of The World

Wedded Bliss Cartoons

What is your writing style?
Mostly sober, sometimes tipsy.
But its my voice – I tell stories the way I talk and yes sometimes I talk in verse.

How much would you sell your blog for?
It would have to be enough to keep me from starting another one, so it better be a really good offer. It would be like selling my life and that doesn’t come cheap.

What do people commonly say about your site?
I think most people are entertained or they watch and stare like they’re watching a train wreck. For the most part my readers are kind, funny and supportive. My friends who don’t read my site could care less and I like it that way.

Why should someone visit your site?
People should visit my site and help me become famous or lead me to a publisher so I can publish my novel for Christ’s sake. Really, I just want people to read what I have to say and hopefully they will learn a few things and learn that life should never be taken so seriously. Good and bad things happen and we all need to take moments to appreciate our gifts.

Climate change is caused by man. Myth or reality?
Reality my friend.

Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
I pretty much try to read everyone on my blogroll however, these are a few that I feel are under appreciated.

Jalpuna

Amanda Veryzen

Crisis Intervention Summit

Ten Minute Soldier

What would you have written on your tombstone?
From one of my favorite movies, Love Song for Bobby Long.”She had a lovers quarrel with the world”

Would you go on a reality TV show?
I don’t know. As long as I had make-up and hair people – maybe.

What one website would you recommend and why?
I read “Arts and Letters Daily” because its like the liberal arts version of any news website.

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
I was out for Friday Cocktails with my best girl-friend. We always play the boyfriend game and she pointed to the bartender first and announced that he would be my boyfriend for the night. Actually the bartender was cute except for the seven or so piercings on his face alone. I thought that I could actually date him until I began to thing about the rest of his body. The topic of conversation turned rapidly:How many piercings did he have on his penis and what could it possibly get caught on?Thank god I don’t have my IUD anymore that could get ugly, I could lose my uterus. Does it really feel good for the girl or does it just leave marks? (Could anyone weigh in on this?)Then it all boiled down to me not being able to date him because if I brought him home to my kids they would want to pierce their genitals too!

Had any supernatural experiences?
My sensitivity to my environment is often mistaken for psychic abilities. People are always asking me to weigh in on stuff based on my intuition.

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
Recently turned 30…..It won’t actually kill you if you break up with him it will just feel like your dying.
Don’t drink too much.
Always choose the guy you’re about to dump, instead of the other guy. Dating younger men is really just a waste of time. Don’t let your son go live with his father.

Can you tell us a joke?
No; my jokes are only effective because I tell them with a southern accent.

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actresses, comedian, song and film.
The Pillow Book

What’s the most incredible thing that’s ever happened to you?
Giving birth.

And finally, what would you wish for with 3 wishes?
I wish I wasn’t addicted to cigarettes.
I wish nothing but future happiness for my children.
More money.

Now it’s your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.
Why did you start your blog and are you going to only interview people?

Joe Blogs : I started my blog to see what the commotion was all about. I wanted to test myself to see if I can write to a good standard on a regular basis. I will only be interviewing people, unless another life form becomes available.

Joe Blog's Interview #51 Bob's £50 Million Blog

Name : Bob Red
Age : 29
Location : Hertfordshire.
Vocation : Electronic Design Engineer & Hardware Project Leader.
Philosophy : The true measure of someones character can be based on what you would do IF you could get away with it.

Sum up what your blog is about for us.
My blog is set on two levels; on the public side of things, its my attempts to send up the stupid, insane and frustrating elements of life, whilst hopefully raising a laugh or two. A bit like converting negative energy into positive energy, only without the need for beards, open university style tank tops and bad BO. The second level of my blog is written in the same vein, but is a lot more personal to me. I regulate this part by password, but its free to join and there is no catch. I just like to know who has access. Unfortunately I cant tell you more than that but if you're curiosity is piqued then the joining instructions are on my site.

Why are you doing your blog?
I love making people laugh. I also like the opportunity to be completely sarcastic. I also like writing. Perhaps in someways i would like my blog to become well known making me an Internet celebrity only without the mandatory drug use, beating up of press members and gobbing off at every opportunity whilst on big brother.

How much would you sell your blog for?
Youve probably heard loads of people say 'i wouldn't', or 'its pricelss...' well its yours for £50 million!! Ill just start up another blog for free and live a life of luxury ;o)

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
I was travelling home on the tube after an office party one year and we get the token fake beggar walking down the carriage doing the usual 'i need money for a hostel' crap. (we'll ignore the fact he was in brand new reeboks) After being ignored and doing the whole 'i hope you have a merry Christmas' guilt trip mind games, he proceeds to leave the train. A rather drunk bloke standing in between two rather attractive young ladies decides to be brave.... After the beggar gets off, he waits... The doors close... The train enters the tunnel.... He then exclaims in his most put on roughest north London accent... "yeah... f**k off!" The girls were suitably impressed...What a man!

Are there any blogs you enjoy reading?
I know its terrible, but I'm more of a writer than a reader. I have a list of semi regular reads. If an entry is short an punchy ill no doubt read it, which is ironic for me since my entries are longer than a builders tea break!

Whats the funniest entry on your blog?
Gah! that's a really tough one... Well one of the entries that got way too much attention was this one Outbreak (I really should have known better ;o)

What is your writing style?
Sarcastic with a caustic, wits-end streak!

Why should someone visit your site?
If they feel like laughing at me or with me.

What do people commonly say about your site?
"Would you like to buy Viagra?" "Greetings to you in Jesus' name would you like to help me transfer money into your country?" I do get lots more intelligent comments however, my favourite comment was from one of my regular readers and good friends. I think it best sums up my blog... "your sense of humour...cynical though it is...is absolutely fantastic and most of these [entries]are exceptionally funny, except for the fact that the truth of them is slightly saddening." I just guess that's the world we live in nowadays sadly.

If you could recommend one website, what would it be and explain why.
Click Here as it cleverly illustrates the depths at which my humour can plummet too ;o)

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actress's, film, song, and comedian.
Don't really have a favourite actor. My favourite actress would be Angelina Jolie because "i sooo would!" My absolute favourite film has to be Love, Honour & Obey as there are so many classic lines in that film that can be recited on a boozy night out. Shame the title makes it sound like a girly romance film... Its actually a gangster movie like Lockstock and Snatch. My music taste swings widly too... The most fitting song for me would be 'waiting for my real life to begin' But I tend to listen to rock or dance music more than anything else these days. I hate anything with 'urban' in the title, or where the video has the rap star poncing around in a gold plated Humvee wearing a necklace with an AK47 on it. What a load of self indulgent crap! Dave Gorman's a favourite comedian of mine, me and some friends spent a summer following him around, going to his performances. I even got into a bit of bother at the BBC TV show because i turned up forgetting i had a small penknife still attached to my key chain. Anyone would think i was walking in there with weapons grade plutonium!

Tell us a joke.
Have you heard about Einsteins theory on incest?
its all relative...
These days though I'm more into philosophy... trying to answer topical questions such as "if you were to sleep with your own clone, would that be considered gay or just masturbation?"

What would you wish for with 3 wishes?
1) Whatever i wish for doesn't get none of that monkey's paw "turn your wish in upon itself" crap. 2) The opportunity to get out and meet people 3) A flying car that drives/parks itself.

Another Groovy Post!

J Oh Silhouette e
b L Ozarkland: O G for Grenier and Garage Stencil Letter S
So in the news this week, China launches a missile into space, at the same time saying they are opposed to the militarisation of space. The US have their Star Wars Defense System, but It’s Space Balls.

So UK Celebrity Big Brother contestant Jade Goody has been voted out of the house for what were deemed to be racist comments. Well the gemstone Jade was originally used as axe heads, knives and other weapons in the stone age. Which is perhaps where her mentality is.

There have been complaints that Simon Cowell has been too cruel recently on American Idol. When has he ever not been that way. Though you’d think if someone loosened those chest high trousers, the blood might run to his brain a little better.

The Prince Of Wales is making a 7,000 mile trip to New York to collect his Global Environmental Citizen award from Al Gore. Isn’t that ironic. And since when was Charles a citizen, can’t remember the last time he went to Wal-Mart. And where are all the green wheelie bins outside Buckingham Palace, I don’t see him sifting through the cardboard, and glass etc. You’d think being divorced he'd be good at separating.

Speaking of the monarchy, a British Historian Sarah Poynting, has discovered a secret code in a love letter written by Charles I. The letter was written in 1648, while Charles was imprisoned in Carisbrooke castle. The message he encrypted, was “I imagine that there is one way possible that you may get a swiving from me.” The word swiving was a word used for sex in the 17th century. So the findings aren’t exactly the holy grail, but it shows the King liked to have swiving good time.

Incredibly an American man has survived a fall from 17 floors, out of the window of a hotel. He had been out drinking and when running down the corridor crashed through the hotel window in Minneapolis. He was smashed literally. God knows what he had been drinking, Sex on the beach, Harvey Wallbanger, Elbow in the Boobs, or a Vertigo Wallslammer perhaps. If he’d asked for it on the rocks it could have been more painful, he was certainly shaken and stirred with several broken bones, but he did survive.

Thanks for all your comments :)

Personal catharsis and as an outlet for creativity. Oh, and to achieve MY fifteen minutes of fame and then some.

What one website would you recommend and why?
Google. It really is the best search engine ever!

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
My 2 sisters had just come back home from the dentist. They had each had a tooth taken out. Naturally, the dentist had administered anesthesia to numb their gums. While having dinner, one sister commented that the other didn't seem to notice that water was dripping down the side of her mouth whenever she drank. All the time never realizing she was doing the same thing. Imagine everyone at the table noticing at the same time - we all exploded in laughter!

A creepy encounter with a "being" during a late-night editing session for film class that I'd rather not go into detail about.
