Random Saturday "fill in the blank" afternoon questions
My answers in bold parentheses.

1.) Fill in the blank: "I was really anxiously awaiting the release of ___________________ (book, movie, album or whatever), but when it came out I couldn't have been more disappointed and actually felt ripped off." (Rush's "Signals")

2.) Fill in the blank: "When I was younger, I used to think ___________________ (TV show, movie, certain type of food, or whatever else) was great, but when I take a look at / taste / experience in whatever other way this now, I wonder what the hell I could have been thinking back then. (The TV show "Hunter.")

3.) Fill in the blank: "Even if I wanted to become president, my chances would drop straight to nil if anyone ever saw or learned about my ____________________________ ." (Hair going past my shoulder blades and my Spinal Tap mustache in high school)

4.) Fill in the blank: "The best bang for the buck I ever experienced in my entire life was my purchase of ______________________ ." (My set of darts; I've won well over 100 times their purchase price in tournaments. A good second choice would be the Swiss Army knife I bought in the 1970s which I still use frequently today)

5.) Fill in the blank: "If I were to learn that production of _______________________ were to end this month, I'd go out tomorrow and buy as much of it as I could." (RC Cola)

1. My not-so-random answers
1.) Fill in the blank: "I was really anxiously awaiting the release of ___________________ (book, movie, album or whatever), but when it came out I couldn't have been more disappointed and actually felt ripped off."

I can't think of a thing. I'm such a cynic, I always expect the worst. :P

2.) Fill in the blank: "When I was younger, I used to think ___________________ (TV show, movie, certain type of food, or whatever else) was great, but when I take a look at / taste / experience in whatever other way this now, I wonder what the hell I could have been thinking back then.

Spaghetti-o's :puke:

3.) Fill in the blank: "Even if I wanted to become president, my chances would drop straight to nil if anyone ever saw or learned about my ____________________________ ."

Atheism, rampant drug and alcohol abuse and sexual shenanigans. :shrug:

4.) Fill in the blank: "The best bang for the buck I ever experienced in my entire life was my purchase of ______________________ ."

That '85 VW Golf that was 3/4 rust and that I got for $400 in 1998. I drove it all the way to California from Vermont, and for 2 years after that, before it pooped out on me.

5.) Fill in the blank: "If I were to learn that production of _______________________ were to end this month, I'd go out tomorrow and buy as much of it as I could."

2. OMFG
I can't believe you brought up Spaghetti-Os and that I forgot about them. My neighbors, a family of four including two kids under six, just moved and left me all of their remaining groceries. In the pile were two cans of Spaghetti-Os. I remember liking them as a kid so I nuked up a can of them earlier this week.

Two spoonfuls and I poured the rest down the kitchen sink drain. I took the other can and dropped it in a collection box at a local hotel. Simply vile. :puke:

4. Good questions
1. The WKRP DVDs. Without the original music, the episodes aren't the same, like Les getting dressed for his hot date with Jennifer to Hot Blooded. Whatever that sub was, it sucked.

2. The Dave Dawson books. Yes, I'm old and yes, I'm a geeky nerd.

3. Oh hell, name just about anything between puberty and menopause.

4. My DVD player. I do like to watch movies without the barbarian hoards with their cell phones and without missing a scene because I had to answer latrine call. Oh yeah, my PCs. I love this net thang.

5. Rocher chocolates.

5. I me mine
1.)I was really anxiously awaiting the release of Dry by Augustin Burroughs, but when it came out I couldn't have been more disappointed and actually felt ripped off.

2.) When I was younger, I used to think Catholicism was great, but when I think about this now I wonder what the hell I could have been thinking back then.

3.) Even if I wanted to become president, my chances would drop straight to nil if anyone ever saw or learned about my interest in Japanese rope bondage and general pevviness.

4.) The best bang for the buck I ever experienced in my entire life was my purchase of this laptop.

5.) If I were to learn that production of Annie's Organic Mac and Cheese were to end this month, I'd go out tomorrow and buy as much of it as I could.
