Q and A and TMI

Bill Stankus from Just A Moment Of Miscellany tagged me with this long questionnaire.

1. What are your current obsessions?

Lately I enjoy finding old pictures at the the thrift store and "improving" them by painting or gluing inappropriate stuff into the pic. Sort of like a 3D version of Blingee, I guess.

Like, I found this old photo of an angel watching over some kids on a bridge.

It's sweet, huh? But it would be much cooler if the angel was chasing the kids instead, don't you think? As soon as I can find a clear pic of one, I'm going to put a chainsaw in her hands and then alter her expression slightly to make her look insane and the kids more freaked out.

I'm also digging this gif of Christopher Walken. (Hats off to whoever made it.)

Whoa, psychedelic. Hopefully this isn't giving you a seizure.

It would be fun to make something similar. Perhaps one of me naked, holding a chainsaw and floating through space?

I like to do these "art projects" even though they are completely dumb. Hey, it keeps me off the streets!

2. Which items from your wardrobe do you wear most often?

Jeans, tee shirts, and my Jesus sandles are what I wear for hanging out at home. If I'm going out then it's nicer jeans, nicer tees and hawt shoes.

3. What's for dinner?

I don't know, what do you feel like cooking?

4. Last thing you bought?

Some L-lysine for my canker sore. It's much better today BTW.

5. What are you listening to?

A Ghost Is Born by Wilco. Love that band so much! Can't wait for their new album.

6. If you were a god/goddess who would you be?

Probably Eris, the Greek goddess of chaos and mischief. Heh heh.

7. Favorite holiday spots?

Anyplace I've never been to before.

8. Reading right now?

The Portable Obituary: How the Famous, Rich, and Powerful Really Died by Michael Largo. I'm a sucker for trivia books and anything morbid.

9. Four words to describe yourself.

Just four? That's hard. I'm really fascinating! Let's see....Dreamer, Slacker, Philosopher, and Dork.

10. Guilty pleasure?

Tons, but does it count if I don't really feel guilty about them?

11. Who or what makes or made you laugh until you’re weak?

Well, I love the show It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. The episode "Charlie Gets Molested" nearly made me pee my pants. I like outlandish, absurd type humor.

12. Who or what makes you so angry you could scream?

Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin represent everything I hate about America. I would happily throw feces at them if I ever got the chance.

13. Planning to travel to next?

My mom is making go to my aunt's wedding anniversary party this summer. Since they live in Atlanta I'll be forced to drive through Georgia again - shudder - other than that no plans, but I'm open to anything. You never know.

14.Best thing you ate or drank lately?

It wasn't all that lately, but the best thing I ever ate was a deep fried Mars Bar. Damn, that was good! Also, if I were super rich, I swear I'd be fatter than Oprah from going to fabulous four star restaurants every single night, and being able to throw back the finest vodka and caviar whenever I felt like it (which would be often.)

15.When did you last get tipsy?

Probably last weekend.

16. Favorite ever film?

Rubin and Ed. I don't know why this movie is so obscure. I haven't been able to find a DVD of it, which sucks because it's so great. It's about an eccentric, unsociable, young man who is forced by his mother to make some friends before she'll return his stereo to him. He is joined on a trip through a desert by a pyramid-scheme salesman, as they search for a location to bury a frozen cat. Who wouldn't love that? Plus Crispin Glover, my all time fav actor, is in it.

17. Care to share some wisdom?

Sure. Unfortunately, I don't have any. Sorry. :(

18. If you could change one thing in your life what would it be?

I'd love to be stinking rich. (Sorry for stealing your answer, Bill.)

19. What are your blog turn-ons and turn-offs?

I enjoy clever posts and people who seem like they'd be a lot of fun to hang out with. Also, anyone who challenges me to look at the world a little differently. I'm forever getting crushes on various bloggers.

Turn-offs include people who use their blogs in place of therapists. Come on! I understand and all but it gets really dull. I get tired of saying "buck up, little soldier" constantly.

20. Favorite website? I go there several times a day, every day.

The End

Okay, I now hereby tag everyone who has not already done this one. You know who you are.

The rules are as follows: you've got to answer all the questions, change one and then add one.


words...words...words... said...

Your idea to find mediocre art and improve it is something that is completely in tune with my sensibility. It's the kind of idea that would make me subscribe to your newsletter if you had one. Instead I will just keep reading your blog.

WendyB said...

I never say, "Buck up, little soldier," but now I'm going to start.

diane said...

I love your painting idea! I get creative tombstone ideas, like I'd love to make a tombstone for someone that says "problem solved" and include a little button to start a recording that says "what the f*ck are you looking at?".

Crispin Glover in Charlies Angels, so hot...omg!

Lulu LaBonne said...

I'm deffo going to find that film - thanks for the tip.

No 7.- What a question - who likes holiday spots - is that like a holiday cold sore or holiday crabs?

Eric said...

Christopher Walken Art!!! Noooooo!!!!!

You have some interesting hobbies there Pru... :)

Warped Mind of Ron said...

I'm sorry, my little blog is all therapy and depressing stuff. I did appreciate your little "Buck up, little soldier" comment you left me :*(

Dr Zibbs said...

You and I need to smoke a bone togther someday.

And watch that Rubin movie. And maybe Phantom of the Paradise. Depends how good the weed is.

Bill Stankus said...

You da one ... and what a cool idea, giving seizures to a bunch of lame-o bloggers, especially those doing it for DIY therapy.

And, isn't "Buck up little soldier" some kind of sex worker expression? I read that somewhere.

Prunella Jones said...

Sex worker expression? No way. I learned of it while acting. In fact, it was one of my lines from the movie I shot. Actually the full line went like this,

"Ooooo yeah, buck up little soldier and come salute these titties! Oh yeah...oh, oh, oh!"

xl said...

Uh, maybe your movie could be put up on YouTube? Just saying.

words...words...words... said...

I've always heard and used the phrase as "Buck up little camper". The soldier angle is new to me. And I wonder what a Google search of that line would unearth...

Candy's daily Dandy said...

hey Pru, glad to hear the canker is better!

Your love for mischief and a challenge are exactly what brings me over here to see what Pru's got cookin up!!

I'm a Huge fan of Stankus also, that's where I found you!

julochka said...

i love the idea of the angel with a chainsaw. that's inspired!

Joyless Prole said...

No one likes a gloomy gus.

Cora said...

I am loving that art idea! LOVIN' IT!!!! Promise you'll post the chainsaw angel painting once you've improved it?! PLEASE!!!! This I must see! :-)

And I'll tackle the tag this weekend.

Girl Interrupted said...

Oooh, those are some cool answers, Pru!

That Christopher Walken gif is the essence of awesome! And please let me know if that book is any good ... it sounds totally like my kinda book! Also intrigued by the film ...

I'm too tired to post tonight, but I might well steal it tomorrow ... I'm becoming quite the meme ho lately. :P

Fancy Schmancy said...

crap, I just realized you have yet to leave me a "buck up, little soldier" comment, but it is probably forthcoming. Thanks for noticing me...
