20 Questions, Humor

It’s been a while since we’ve had a good old-fashioned 20 Questions, so it seemed like time to jump back in.  And who better than Emily over at Snotting Black?  If you haven’t visited her site before, you’re missing out. But don’t take my word for it…

Hey, Emily!  Let’s Play 20 Questions!

Vat is zis ‘Irony’ oof which you speak?

1. What quality do you most admire in others?  Ironic facial hair.

6. If you could relive one day – either keeping it the same, or changing something – what would you choose?  The day of my birth. I’m a triplet and want to be first this time.

    “Snotting Black” ?!? Once again, I find a blog name which turns me green with envy.


  2. Go Jules Go Says:

    Fabulous. Emily, I like that you don’t beat around the bush with these answers. Please don’t stab me if I fail to compliment you adequately (did you see my ironic facial hair?). Also, I celebrate peanut butter every day, so please alert me when you pick the day, and I will have the float ready.

    To both of you: Tin a Fey is a goddess. It’s hard for me to even talk about her without getting emotional.


  3. speaker7 Says:

    See I’ve always found stabbing to be a good quality. But that’s just me.


  4. renée a. schuls-jacobson Says:

    Holy Hello. Emily is funnier than I am. I must follow. 🙂


  5. LizForADay Says:

    My favorite question would definitely be #4. LOL! 🙂


  6. becomingcliche Says:

    I hope you actually do sit Chuck E. Cheese down for a good talking to. Because. For real.


  7. mistyslaws Says:

    Well crap. Thanks a lot, B-man. Just what I need is another irreverent, hysterical blogging bitch that I have to follow. Like there aren’t enough blogs that I don’t have the time to read already? Well played, sir. Damn you.

    And seriously, who DOESN’T think Tina Fey is a goddess? Because whoever that person is . . . is Satan.


  8. Audrey Says:

    Emily – you’ve outdone yourself once again! That darn stabbing gets in the way of everything, doesn’t it?


  9. cookie5683 Says:

    Hahaha!!! Chuck E. Cheese. Man that pizza is hard core nasty


  10. UndercoverL Says:

    Loving the snot out of this! Ironically, as I wrote that I got an email from Chuck E. Cheese. We are close like that, he offered me free tokens. That’s not so wrong. I also accidentally broke a machine at Chuck E. Cheese and ended up with 2500 tickets. Don’t hate.


    • Denise Says:

      You broke a machine and they charged you?! I accidentally pulled off Chuck E’s tail and got nothing but an nasty look and a quick retreat to the backstage area. I was 5. They obviously should’ve sewed it on better. I can’t be the only kid to yank on a giant singing rat tail!


      • UndercoverL Says:

        Well, we were taught as kids that if you pulled a string the experience would change. What were you to do? No, I got the tickets from the machine (reward) and turned them in for a slinky and a ball that lights up when you bounce it. That was two years ago.


    • edrevets Says:

      You, Charles, and I should go out sometime.


  11. susielindau Says:

    Okay so what is up with this stabbing??? I hope it was into a jar of peanut butter while simultaneously watching Charlie Brown’s Christmas and panting over google searches on the internet… 🙂


  12. Leanne Shirtliffe (Ironic Mom) Says:

    I heart Emily just by these answers. Maybe the person I should sit down and chat to about being wrong, wrong, wrong is the person who made “heart” a verb.


  13. Life With The Top Down Says:

    #4 is my favorite! You do not get more original than that answer!
    ps. If you stab for hire, I have a list.


  14. Tori Nelson Says:

    Stabbing and Creative Cursing are neck-in-neck for sins I struggle with the most.


  15. Jen Says:

    I have discovered you through my Sister Wife Misty and now I am disturbed that I have. It is rare indeed that I find a man capable of being simultaneously snarky AND self-effacing. That is a heady combination, my friend.


    • The Byronic Man Says:

      It’s a skill I developed through years of simultaneous confidence and self-loathing. Not an easy balance.

      What part of Portland do you live in? I love Portland. Lived there for about 10 years.


      • Jen Says:

        My boys and I live in Lake Oswego, and I work downtown at Portland State University. You’re in Bend, right? My family has a home in Sunriver so we’re up there just about every other weekend and will be cruising over for Christmas. Congratulations on the new baby; you’re in for the ride of your life!


  16. Angie Z. Says:

    Great answers, Emily. I am so with you and Alexander Hamilton on the Aaron Burr thing. I don’t care as much for square dancing but I’ll do anything for an excuse to dress like the girls on Hee Haw.


  17. Storkhunter Says:

    Great answers Emily. Love number 20. It’s the only way to be remembered
