First, thank you to Paula for the newly designed "Share Your World" badge. Guess I can retire mine…
I’ll find another use for the color bars, I promise.
Tena asks: What constitutes a sandwich in your opinion? Is it only the standard two slices of bread, filling (including spreads or meats and cheeses and veggies), put together in a stack? That definition is a little restrictive. An Italian beef sandwich, for example, is a pile of Italian beef (shredded rump roast simmered in giardiniera and/or pepperoncini) stuffed inside a chunk of French bread that’s been split. A hot dog is the dog and whatever condiments you like (me, none) inside a hot dog bun. A gyros is lamb (or beef or pork) that’s been cooked on a spit and carved off onto pita bread, with onions, tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce. The pita is then wrapped around the stuffings and eaten. You could consider tacos to be a form of sandwich. So, no, it can be more than just meat, cheese, veggies, and condiments between two slices of bread.
Marilyn asks: Are ‘strong’ and ‘tough’ in regard to character the same thing or different? Please explain your reasoning for either side you pick. No. Being tough means you’re willing to fight for something, and not every person with a strong character is.
Paula has a bunch of questions about RSVP’s, of which I’ll answer one: What’s your opinion on RSVPs? I always heard that RSVP meant to reply if you are coming, not if you aren’t. Evidently, I was either wrong or the definition has changed since John was a lad. As for the other questions, I don’t have my Emily Post handy…
Sadje asks: Do you think Hell has walls? No, but it has a ceiling…
Jim has a few good ones:
What would you name your boat if you had one? "Yappity Gums" (I wish I still had the cartoon that would explain that: it showed a man and a woman walking to their boat thus named, and him saying "I named it for your mother.")
What will finally break the internet? Someone big sitting on it.
If you had to change your name, what would your new name be, and why would you choose that name? George Benjamin William Henry Harrison, Rex for short.
What are some things that sound like compliments but are actually insults?
- You look great for your age!
- Your girlfriend is smoking hot!
- You clean up nicely!
If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask? Does my ass look big in these?
Marilyn asks: How many bloggers are trying to balance the likelihood that WordPress will hike prices against the near certainty that their computers are ready to roll over and die? I have no idea. Probably quite a few.
Finally, Cyranny asks: What’s the most impressive, or oddest thing you’ve ever fixed with duct tape (or something similar)? The zipper on The back of my laptop case broke, so I duct taped it together. Actually worked pretty well.
