I was over at Intenseguys blog and he was interviewed by a fellow blogger...she asked him some great questions and he gave some terrific answers. He said if anyone wanted to be interviewed by him to leave a 'interview me' in the comment section of his post. So I did..these are the questions that he has for me..and I must say...they could be tricky. Not for you old timers as you know everything about me including my Tabu farting abilities, addiction to Blue Bell Ice Cream and my love of Dublin Dr Pepper. I wasn't going to play the game as I'm not sure anyone wants to play. But if you do..leave a comment on this post and I'll come up with some questions for you. You can also head on over to Intenseguys blog and see his answers to the questions..They were very interesting. ok..here goes.
If someone invented a "go-back time machine" which places you in your body that you had, in a situation you were once in, for only 5 minutes, knowing what you know now, what thing(s) would you go back and change?
This is pretty easy for me..I'd probably take the little machine back to four different times..To the first time I took a drink...I wouldn't take it..I'd say no thanks, I'll have a sodie pop. The same with that little bennie...No thanks, I'll have another cup of coffee and some NoDoz..If I hadn't taken that little pill it wouldn't have spiraled into the LSD I took and wouldn't have married asshole number 2. No one should marry a guy you have only met 3 times in 2 weeks after dropping acid. And that day back in July of 1974, when Jack got out of the car all crazy, I wouldn't have gotten out of the car. I would have kept the kids in the car, and just drove off. Drove to my Daddy's in Texas, and had him hide me with my relatives until Jack o.d'd someplace or someone else shot him..Being sober and off drugs would have changed my life and my kids..I probably would never have married Jack, or even met him if I didn't drink, and wouldn't have Maryjo, so that is the only kicker on that trip back in time.Because I can't imagine my life without the MOJO.
What would you do if you were were to spend a week as President Obama? I'd bip the Senate and the House into coma's and make them pass a health care bill, make gay marriages legal, make all major business's that moved their plans to China to bring them back, default on all the money we owe all the countries. Tell them fuck off, you want it, come and get it. Then I would cut off all the countries that we give money to. That would pay for the health care. I would make all people on welfare take drug tests, and if they flunk they don't get any money. Roe vs Wade would never be reversed, but they would have to give sex education in schools and pass out condoms and needles to people on the streets that are on drugs.I'd make marijuana legal and set up programs with farmers to grow hemp and marijuana. I am sure there are other things I'd do but it would probably take more than a week.
How did you end up in Texas? are you a native? I started out here ..My Daddy and his folks are from Mesquite and Forney, Texas. Daddy was in the Air Force and he always tried to stay in Texas so he could be close to them. He was a great son and an even better father. I lived in Texas most of my life when I was a kid, except for some trips to Oklahoma, Hawaii, and Arizona. When I grew up I moved to Calif. to marry Asshole #1, then he joined the Air Force and we lived in Mississippi, New Mexico, Washington and Oregon. I moved back to New Mexico where my Daddy was after Asshole #2 and met Jack. After Jack I moved to Calif to be with Chuck, then back to Texas then back to Calif then back to Texas where I said fuckit...I can't quit this place. If I could live any place in the world, I'd live in West, by Goddess, Texas.
What book or books do you think every child in the USA or the world should read? I am such a believer in kids reading..I think it doesn't matter what they read as long as they read. When I was a kid I started reading when I was about 4...by the time I was 9 I was reading H.Allen Smith, Robert Ruruck(spelling), Ayn Rand, William Farley, all the children's classics, every book on South Africa, Egypt, Greece and England. I loved history and reading about people in different countries ..I read about Cleopatra, Henry VIII, Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, etc.
American history ? I loved Indians..my favorite was Chief Crazy Horse. So kids just need to read. Jerk their little asses off that computer and video game and hand them a book. If they say they don't like to read, keep giving them a book till they find one that speaks to them. Reading is good.
You talk about inventing your own religion and being a goddess - what would be your number 1 rule for humans to live by? If I was a Goddess, and had the power to make human beings follow one rule it would be..........Love Thy Neighbor and be tolerant. There is too much anger and hate ...Muslims against Jews, Christians against Muslims. Whites against Black, Black against Koreans, everyone against someone. Sad..we are eathlings...people of the planet earth..supposed to be put here by a loving and kind God. Yet all we do is kill in his name. Come on everybody, love your neighbor.
So...that's the questions and those are my answers. Anyone wants to play the game..email me and I'll send you the questions and you do a post of them.
