Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken...

Did you see my interview given to me by the ever amusing Hubman yesterday? Yes, I totally need to pimp that again because they were pretty damn good questions.

I got several requests from bloggers to be interviewed by me! I got a few of them done and sent out yesterday. Jormengrund not only got his questions yesterday but even got it posted too! So go check out his great answers to my questions would ya? ;)

My friend Kitten is one of my best friends. One of the only female ones I have. She's 20 and she never fails to make me laugh. We've been friends for around 4 years now. I've been anxiously awaiting news from her for the last couple days and each text I've gotten from her in those days had me wondering if this was finally it. My most recent texts for her calmed my anxious little self down because she had her baby last night! Yay! Her little boy was due to make his crying, messy little debut on the 10th so he was only a few days late. She sent me a text an hour and a half after she gave birth to let me know he was finally here and that he was a healthy, adorable little fella. I congratulated her and told her to get some rest. She sent me another text 4 hours later, it was a picture message. Her fiancee was in the picture with the wrapped up baby in his cute little cap to keep his head warm. It was one of the absolute cutest pictures ever and I'm a little sad that I can't share it here because it's that damn cute of a picture, lol. Anyway, I'm happy for her and her future hubby. Yay!

I watched Fight Club last night. I hadn't realized that movie is almost 10 years old! It was released mid-October of 1999. Holy shit, lol. It's one of my favorite movies. Also the only movie where I find Brad Pitt to be a sexy mother fucker.I don't normally find him to be sexy, at all. In this movie though? Yes, because he's half naked, splattered/covered in blood during a lot of it, playing a completely strange role and in the end he's just a figment of pretty little Edward Norton's deranged, sleepless mind.

My favorite quotes from the movie?

"People do it everyday, they talk to themselves... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."

"It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything."

"The things you own end up owning you."

"And then, something happened. I let go. Lost in oblivion. Dark and silent and complete. I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom."

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off."

It's Wednesday and that means... that it's Wednesday. Duh. Oh and it's time for the Weirdness. I got credit for helping with these questions but I only gave the idea for one of them, lol. Hmm, who can guess which one? ;) Thank you though for the credit Bella!

Did you play with us today?

Wednesday Weirdness #38

These questions are all hypothetical scenarios. Read along and have fun! ANSWER HONESTLY!

1- Times are hard and you get laid off. You turn to the adult entertainment industry and decide to get into sexing it up on camera. You're now a porn star. Even though you now do porn for a living, you still hold on to a little morale, ethics and dignity. What are 3 things, sexually, that you rule out as absolutely not happenings no matter the amount of money?

No beastiality. No bodily fluids that belong in a toilet. No dudes with scary cocks the size of a liter bottle of coke. Seriously, can I just do lesbian porn? That would be cool. =)

2- Pretend you spent a busy day running errands and come home in the afternoon when no one else is home. You come in, sit things down and head to the kitchen. You find a dead body laying in the kitchen floor. What would you do?

How do I know they're really dead? I'd probably check and make sure they're dead. Making sure to cover my hands with rubber gloves. Dish gloves if there are no rubber gloves. Then once I find out they are really dead, probably trip out a little and wonder how the fuck a dead body got into my kitchen. Seriously, these things don't just fall from the ceiling. Then I'd run out the house, jump in to my car and get away from my house in case whoever killed the stranger in my house was sitting upstairs eating my ice cream and playing Xbox or something. Oh and while I'm freaking out and wondering how and why the body is there as I drive away, I'd call the police and let them know what's up. I assume they would be concerned over such a thing.

3- After some extensive testing, scientists found out you have a special supernatural skill that could be put to use to save 20,000 men and women all over the world. The only catch is after you use it, you will die. If you don't use it, 30,000 people will die but you'll still be alive and won't suffer any illness or strange side effects of your special supernatural skill. Are you willing to sacrifice your life for 20,000 people?

I think most people are going to say yes, they would in response to this question. I think not being actually faced with this decision makes it a hell of a lot easier to say yes. The thing that makes you seem like a courageous, brave, selfless person would be to say yes. To seem like a good person is to say yes. I'm not doubting the goodness of anyone at all. I'm saying to never have to face this, it's far more easy to say yes. My answer is no. I don't think my life is more important than those 20,000 people but I'm not willing to give it up. I'm not willing to die for someone that I don't love from the bottom of my heart. Though I'm sure I'd feel incredibly selfish and guilty as fuck afterward.
If it were true and it came right down to it, in the moment of absolute truth and reality, I know a lot of people who say yes now would be screaming no then. Or maybe when the time came, I'd say yes and so would many more. It's easy to say one way or another when you don't actually have to deal with it. I hope I never have to find out what I'd do.

4- You are at a concert. A fight breaks out and the person in front of you gets hit by the person beside you. They turn around and think it's you and no amount of reasoning will convince them otherwise. They are taller by several inches and outweigh you by around 50 pounds. You are about to get punched and possibly manhandled. How do you get out of it and avoid injury?

I probably don't avoid injury. I almost always get into something at shows. I'd probably fight back because I'm too stubborn (and brainless when it comes to these things) to turn around and run away. Sometimes I know I should but I'm aggressive and I have a bad temper. Not to mention my first emotion often is to jump straight to anger. So someone about to punch me would piss me the fuck off and I'd want to punch them back. Even if they are bigger than I am. Unless there are weapons other than fists of fury involved. I don't stick around if weapons are coming out. I'm not so stubborn that I'm willing to get shot or stabbed just because I'm stubborn and have a bad temper, lol.

5- You're having a dinner party with your close friends. One close friend asks if it is fine if they bring a date along. You ask your friend if their date is someone they trust to act well mannered and respectful to others. Your friend sings the praises of their date and you agree to let them bring their date to the dinner party. Once there, their date turns out to be crude, obnoxious, disrespectful and all around a real vile ass to be around. Do you tough it out and later apologize to your other guests? Pull your friend aside and tell them to reign in their date? Confront the friends date about their vile behavior?

I politely ask my friend to have a word with their date, asking them to tone it down a bit and start acting right.
Maybe they're being obnoxious because they're nervous. ;) It isn't my responsibility per se to be the date police but I'm not having the rest of my guests and myself be subjected to someone I couldn't care less about causing problems and making the night unpleasant for everyone. It's fine if you're an obnoxious ass but learn some respect for other people and learn to tone it down. If talking to my friend didn't work, I'd take the date aside privately and politely ask them to chill the fuck out or run the risk of getting smacked. Then later, I'd tell my friend never to bring that person back unless they learn some fucking manners. ;)

Of course, if the date turned into a more permanent fixture in my friends life, that would suck but none of my friends have ever dated a winner that meets that description so woohoo. The worst I've ever had to deal with is a stuck up bitch or two and some loud slutty broads that weren't there to be around long anyway. Though really I've got no clue how I would react. I'd probably pop off and say something and end up making things worse some how, lol. I don't do dinner parties. Friends come over, food is had, we hang out doing whatever it is we are going to do. Good times roll on. Yeah baby.

6- You go to the grocery store and bump carts with a woman. She gets angry and chants at you in gibberish. She smiles, informing you that she has cursed you to never have sex again unless you pay for it. You roll your eyes and walk off. 2 years later and you haven't had any sexual contact with another person since that day. Do you start paying for sex or just never have sexual contact with another person again?

I'm not paying for sex. Although in a sense, I have to buy my vibrators and that would be my sole source of pleasure since I can't have sex. So in a sense, I'm still paying for sex either way. However, the vibrator/masturbation route is cheaper and safer and I'd be perfectly content with that. Of course, I could just give my boyfriend a penny each time I wanted sexy time and technically, I'd be giving him money in exchange for sex. =)

7- Your really good friend is going to their grandmother's house for dinner and invites you along. You make sure it is fine with their grandmother and she says to come along if you like, she has made more than enough food to feed you too. You go. While there, you accidentally break something extremely valuable to your friends grandmother. Do you hide it and pretend nothing every happened or come clean?

Come on, really? Who would hide it and pretend nothing happened? That is so shameful. I would feel like shit but I would own up to it, apologize my ass off and offer to replace it or do something to try and make up for it. I've actually had something like this happen. I tripped on loose carpet in the house of a friend's parents and I fell into a little table and broke an engraved glass picture frame. I apologized for being a klutz and offered to pay for it. My friends mom said I wouldn't have tripped had her husband fixed the damn carpet and only let me pay for half the frame to be replaced.

Happy Wednesday! ;)

Happy Hump Day! Congrats on your friend's baby. That is exciting.

Fight Club...It Rocks!

Good answers...I don't know that I would say yes to that question about saving lives though at the cost of my own....

Baby said...

Congrats on your friend's baby :)

I was just thinking that same thing - how long it's been since they made Fight Club! Good movie...

Loved your answers on the WW - similar answers to my own :) I certainly am not so selfless or such a good humanitarian to give my life up for just anyone... LOL...

Im going to check out that interview - as well as I am working on my own too! THANK YOU :)

My fave lines differs from yours (Fight Club). "Strangers with this kind of honesty make me go a big rubbery one.", "The little scratch on the roof of your mouth that would heal only if you could stop tonguing it, but you can't.", "On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.", and "He had a plan and it made sense in a Tyler sort of way."

I have a HARD question for you to answer from that movie...WHY does Rupert say "Never mind" after seeing Tyler steal a car at an airport? It took me 11 viewings to figure it out.

The title of this post really made me laugh! I am not certain as to why, but I lack any attraction for Brad Pitt... I love the movie fight club though! i also wanted to offer my services as an interviewie if that is even a word.

Jormengrund said...

Excellent post AR!

And thanks for the interview questions, they rocked!

My wife wants some questions, so I'm headed to think up some doozies for her!

Happy Wednesday!

rage said...

Yay for your friend that had the baby and I think my fav part of your WW answers was when you said, "Can I just do lesbian porn?

You're so awesome.

Shannon H. said...

Happy Wednesday :P

vixen kitten said...

Well, hell yes you can just make lesbian porn! Lemme know if that happens, because I will need to add THAT movie to my collection!

Loved your answers. Really loved the title of the post. Stopping by here always gives me something to think about all damn day! :)


Bee said...

The title is the best thing I have seen all day! Made me snort!

Watching Fight Club always pumps me up. Which can be dangerous depending on where I'm heading afterward. If it's to work, I'm okay but if it's to bed then the hubs has to watch out!
