15 Lines

So it has been a while since my last post, but I couldn't pass up the invite to participate in the 15 lines game. So here goes...

1. What is your current obsession?
Watching our dogs Charlotte and Cora track down any fly that is foolish enough to find its way in to our house. Cora takes a bit of convincing to attempt to catch a fly. Charlotte, however, is like a radar the second she heard the buzzing. To date, the two have snagged at least three flies.

2. What kind of clothing do you wear most?
Well, I know some would say an orange move-in crew t-shirt. Others might learn towards my badlands or england shirt. The correct answer is most likely a pair or REI shorts, or my Chaco sandals. Those Chacos are one of the best purchases I have ever made!

3. What's the funniest knock-knock joke you know?
Hmm, well I don't really know any good ones...and frankly the ones I know I am sure everyone does. I am sure though that at one point a long time ago, I found this one hilarious:

Knock knock.
Who's there?
Interrupting cow.
Interrupting cow w--?

4. Last thing you bought?
Would be a coffee bender by Surly. Don't you dare think that a coffee/beer hybrid is absurd. Give it a try, it is amazing!

5. What are you listening to?
A few different noises are immediately apparent. The one the catches my ear foremost is the snoring of Charlotte.

6. If you were a god or goddess, who would you be?
Has to be Apollo. With music and archery, two things I enjoy, he is the clear winner for me.

7. Favourite holiday spots?
From days past, Galveston is my favorite. The cool breeze from the gulf feels so nice, especiallyl after a visit to the local chocolatier! For more current times, staying in Lutsen and spending time in Grand Marais is perfect.

8. Reading right now?
Riding the Rap by Elmore Leonard. Halfway through. Good book.

9. Okay, what were you think just then?
There needs to be a more enforced sound restriction on automobiles...

10. Who's your hero/heroin?
Lloyd Christmas and The Dude, aka Duder, Duderino, His Dudeness (if you're in to the whole brevity thing). Not exactly heroes, but two characters who have changed my life, in comical ways.

11. First spring thing?
Lilacs! Well, that might be creeping in to early summer...but still!

12. Funniest thing you saw in your life?
Wow. My life has been full of funniest moments. Well the moments that come to mind are more accurately the funniest moments of two of my friend's lives.

The first was when I made my friend AJ laugh so hard that he threw up. All it took was a simple comment upon the way his breath smelled and the fact that he was drinking a pop to fix it. We all had a powerful laughing session.

The second was when I made another friend, Jacob, laugh so hard that his nose started to bleed. I can't quite remember what I did to make that happen, so I will have to ask him!

These don't even count my old "laugh attacks" I would get when I was younger...

13. Favourite film?
Well my answer is probably the same as every other person who has done this game: really?? There is no way I can say what is my favourite, so here are a few:

Dumb and Dumber
The Big Lebowski
The Last of The Mohicans
Big Trouble
Ace Ventura, Pet Detective
Saving Private Ryan

The ones in bold are probably my number one and two (in no specific order on the list).

14. Share some wisdom?
Don't spit into the wind.

15. If you could be an animal, what animal would it be?
Hmm, I can narrow it down to cat, dog, fox, wolf, bird of any type, bear, fish, lion, tiger, horse, llama, leopard, jaguar, any monkey, dolphin, or whale. Well, I guess that's not too narrow...

16. Fictitious character who made a lasting impression on you?
Basically the same as a question above, Lloyd Christmas and The Dude. Another would be Maximus Decimus Meridious, the hero from Gladiator. Anyone who has seen the movie knows how powerful of a character he is.
