Five little questions

Putting down my own pen and notepad for a spell, I've summoned Jeff Kos to interview my fascinating self. He's come up with five psyche-probing questions to try and reveal the real O'Tim. Let's see how he does:

1. If you could commit one act of vandalism without any fear of repercussion, what would it be?
I suppose since I regard vandalism as the most immature form of self-expression, I'd like to turn the diving pool at the Olympics into lemon Jell-O with Baby Ruths in it.

2. What is your favorite holiday, and why?
Labor Day, because of the giddy irony of not working that day and because I can tack on a vacation day or two for a splendid long weekend of camping at any number of awesome outdoor music festivals and because it signals the end of the hot-ass summer although really in the south that won't be until October.

Or World Sauntering Day (June 19).

3. What is the single most profound discovery having a child helped you make?
It has made me aware of the humongous potential capacity of my heart and soul to love and care for another human being, and it has confirmed beyond any shadow of a doubt that we come from an intelligent spark that thought it would be cool to have us around.

4. What annoying word/phrase/expression do you use that you wished you didn't?
"Okie-dokie" and "Seriously," of which the latter is the fault of watching Grey's Anatomy too much.

5. What kid did you hate in elementary school?
Holden Cox. Seriously. No, Just Kidding - I didn't hate Holden until high school. But that is his name. And his middle name is James, which by ending with 's' makes the whole a sort of perfect storm of bad names to give your child. He was always so proud to have supposedly been named after Holden Caulfield. I never figured out why someone would be proud of being named after a misanthropic hypocrite, at least without displaying some of the streak of cynical genius with which Salinger imbued his character. We were best friends in elementary school into junior high. I don't know, maybe I did hate him.

This is part of an experiment that also has PJ, UV Paula, Joe the Troll, Looney, Hippie Don, Ole Blue the Heretic and Jodie in its grips.

Interested in keeping the flow going? Here are the rules:

Leave a comment saying something like, "Interview Me, O Curious One."

I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

Update your blog with the answers to my questions, and let me know that you answered.

If you don't have a blog, but would still like to play, I can send you the questions, and you can answer 'em on my comments page.

You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else
in the same post. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will
ask them five questions, I mean three. No five! Aahhhhhhh.


I don't think O'Tim actually answered the last question. Koz???
Ok, I'll bite.

O' Great and Curious One, question me!
I think I'm done. I might want to edit in a more sober moment, but the questions were asked and I've answered.


Hugs! Miss you and Jen!
Thanks Tams. Looks like you're the only one.
"Okie Dokie Artichokie" is one of the best damn phrases, period.

Seriously. ;)
