What is your middle name? Everyone here already knows the answer to that. My middle name is "Soon."

What is your favorite candy? There is something besides chocolate?

What dance can you do best? Disco (Hey, that one wasn't supposed to make anyone laugh!)

What book are you reading right now? The 2001 IRS Manual.

Besides cheese, what is your favorite pizza topping? Pizza is what I eat when all the other restaurants are closed. Avoid the baby fish and I won't much care what else is there as long as there's plenty of it. Quality is measured by weight per slice.

If you could be one famous person for a week, who would you want to be? Bush. But it might take more than a week. Better make that Superman, and then twenty-four hours should be long enough.

Do you think you're capable of changing a bad habit?  Which one? Any habit is a bad one if it robs you of choise. But habits are inevitable. So, uh, why bother? Besides, my bad habits have taken years to cultivate! However, I do know I'm capable of changing a bad habit, because I've already done it twice. Both divorces were expensive, though.

What's your favorite drink? Coffee. No, make that Coke. Nope, defintely coffee. But probably Coke after the sun has gone down. Did I mention coffee? Yea, coffee is good.

What was your favorite childhood toy? Miata. ('Was' incorrectly assumes a man's childhood ends. It doesn't.)

What's your favorite flower? The ones that don't require constant weeding. Dandelions are nice that way. Unfortunately, I've discovered that poets are wrong to compare women to flowers. There are no dandelions out there.

What would be included in your favorite meal? Anything Italian. And coffee. No, make that Coke. Nope, defintely coffee. But probably Coke after the sun has gone down. Did I mention coffee? Yea, coffee is good.

So, I usually compromise and drink iced tea.

What was the last movie or book that made you cry? The 2001 IRS Manual.

If you play a musical instrument, what is it? Radio. But not very well.

Would you eat a cup of worms for one million dollars? Okay, I know how this one goes. "Would you sleep with me for a million dollars?" "Sure," answered the girl. "Would you sleep with me for five bucks?" "What kind of girl do you think I am!" she demanded. "We've already established that," he said, "Now we're just haggling over the price."

If what you would or wouldn't do is dependent on price, then your life is subject to negotiation. So, to answer your question - do I hear two million from anyone else?

What profession or job would you least like to do? Surrogate Mother.

What piece of clothing in your closet will you never throw out or give away? My Superman cape (just in case that other one above ever happens).

my middle name was named alicia
after alicia alonso, the ballet dancer
my mother met on a train
in the club car one greyed
afternoon in may after the war,
i think, but i can never be sure
of anything any more,
when she carried me
so secure in her
belly i wish
i never had
to come
out of.
i love
a lady
godiva
chocolate
melted slowly
in my mouth after a slow slow
slow dance cheek to cheek with my lover
like ballet had just that moment been created

tonight i will read him dylan thomas, fresh from the library,
then feed him black olives one by one from the top of melted cheese
knowing that the only fame i long for is to hear my name on his lips.

i am capable of changing bad habits but i can't think of one i would like to change.
i am delighted to sip my pinot grigio from a tall sleek stem glass remembering playing with jacks
picked up one by one then two by two then three then four then five at a time, ball bouncing
to the rhythm of rhyme in my head, like a game of math making everything make sense finally.

my favorite flower is a bird of paradise.

after dylan thomas tonight and the dance we will have broiled salmon sauteed in  lemon pepper on the
grill and talk about how  i can't remember one movie or book that hasn't made me cry
then i'll pick up the guitar and try to sing again and touch the piano keys with
a brief interlude of gershwin and bach, so completely unpracticed,
my whole presentation out of tune.

no amount of money is worth anything and tonight i can't imagine ever working as a salesperson.
one thing i know for sure is i would never give away my well worn jeans faded like my hopes yet on fire with desire, defining me threadbare.

Ron..for some quirky, zany reason, you really had me cracking up there.
On to the questions.

Middle name: Albert Alastair (I love that freedom of choice)

Fav Candy: homemade rice krispy treats fresh from the oven all hot and gooey

Best Dance: Kalamushka or Strip the Willow

Current Book: Reading Terry Pratchett's "Truth" outloud to a ladyfriend

Pizza topping: I'm rather ambivalent about toppings, but it has to have slightly underdone stuffed crust

Famous Person: Ron, so I could do extremely irresponsible things and not get blamed for them

Bad Habit: I drink too much coffee and smoke too many cigs. I could give up coffee or cigs, but not both. Eat right, exercise, die anyways.

Fav Drink: Coffee or Dr. Pepper (nectar of the Gods when there's no coffee)

Fav Toy: My imagination...still got it here somewhere, in its original box

Fav Flower: Orchid...nuff said

Included with Fav Meal: Shiner Bach. Nothing goes better with a slab of medium rare steak, big baker with lots of butter, sour cream,  and cheese, and molasses bread

Movie or Book: Last movie to actually make me cry was Red Dawn. No books so far have evoked tears, though a few have given me shivers

Musical Instrument: Violin (badly), and practice chanter for bagpipes (very badly)

Worms for a Million: Sure. I know I have a price...it's called Minimum Wage

Least Fav Job: Anything that involves a paper hat in a hamburger hell

Clothing: My kilt. When I don't have room when I move around for it, I make room. I lose more suits that way.

Favorite candy: Redvines
Dance: I'm with Allen on this one...maybe we should be partners!

Famous Fantasy: Tina Turner
Bad Habit: I doubt it, although I did cut down on chewing gum when I was younger.
Favorite Drink: Root Beer (best when I can find it on tap, which so far has only been in Oregon)
Childhood Toy: My Arf-Arf, a small walking barking dog that I used to feed rice crispies to.  Now he has no ears or fur on his face, just a plastic skull.  
Favorite meal: Alaskan King Crab Legs!!!!!
Favorite flower: Never had one.
Last tearjerker:  With the DeVine one here, every single movie or TV show I watch, but I think the very last one was Monday night's Ally McBeal.
Insrument: Piano
Eat the worms?:  Absolutely
Worst profession: Butcher or Collection Agent
Clothing: Nothing in particular that I can think of, but I hang on to most of it for WAY too long.
