Bud Hosts: John Lennon
Hi! I'm Bud Weiser, sitting in for my girlfriend DJ Kathy A today. Welcome to Rock 'n Roll Fridays. We are like other memes in that we will ask you thirteen questions each and every Friday.

Today we picked John Lennon.

What's your favorite possession?

Till you're so crazy you can't follow their rules A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be”

I was sort of popular in my Junior and Senior years, but only with a certain crowd of band kids and glee people.

When was the last time you went out on the town? What did you do?

Who was the last person who spread lies about you?
Ironically, it was my father...I was going thru his notes and found an open letter to one of his elderly friends that he never sent and he white-lied about his children in it. I was startled.

10. God “God is a concept By which we measure Our pain”
How do you conceive “god”?
Immaculate conception?

11. I'm Losing You “Here in some stranger's room,

The skies were eerily quiet from the air ban.


Saturday 9: St. Patrick's Day

1. St. Patrick's Day is March 17th (Thursday). Do you celebrate and wear green? Drink Green Beer? Ignore it?
I always wear green or green and orange on St Patty's Day. I ignore the fact that it is a celebration of a saint who drove the witches and pagan religeons out of just pisses me off.

$450,000 for a house that included 20 years of tax payments and insurance premiums. I'd be a happy girl.

3. One of the symbols of St. Patrick's Day is the leprechaun. Name a celebrity that you think would look good as a leprechaun. Name a celebrity that would look ridiculous as a leprechaun. Is there any one celebrity that would make a really scary leprechaun?

Welcome to Thursday Dating Profiles. This meme is based on a feature from WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. This is a bit different than an "answer this question" meme. Weekly, we scour those on-line dating sites to respond either a person's profile or often their headlines as most of us would really like to do. The spelling or grammar errors were in the original profiles.

1. ME:... is ... optimistic, faithful,hmmm... sometimes with certain ones, sexy; has 2 grown-up children - what a well done job! ;)...
ME: is not interested.

2. I am a very young 50 & a high-energy person. No couch potatoes please!
Hope you took your Geritol.

3. I like quiet life to enjoy with the favorite person and travelling together.
Sounds like a barrel of laughs.

4. I am weak yet strong, brave yet soft, leather and lace, a little good and a little bad.
Wasn't this a toilet tissue ad?

It'll be easy getting over your profile...

6. I have a wonderful sense of mischief,and a smile that will make you think naughty thoughts.
Where ya smilin? Perhaps Hef can do a spread on that.

7. I am a simple person without much fuss and with just average looks. I am a Catholic who would like to follow Jesus.
Translation: I am a boring, stoopid person who thinks other boring, stoopid people will find me worth being boring and stoopid with.

8. On this site for contact with other people that's all.
That's your story and you're stickin to it right?

Wednesday Wickedness: Whoopi Goldberg

Today Janera picked Whoopi Goldberg. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. An actress can only play a woman. I'm an actor, I can play anything.
If you could experience any life form that was not a human of your sex, what would you pick and why?
A dog on a farm or out in the country. I think it would be well fed, get plenty of fresh air and have lots of other animals to bark at, play with and hump on (jk).

2. For some reason, all artists have self-esteem issues.
Do you have any self esteem issues? Do tell. (Since we all do.)
I have had bad esteem issues since I was a little girl. Both parents are guilty of promoting my self-loathing, but I'm raising myself out of that pit day at a time.

3. I am the American Dream. I am the epitome of what the American Dream basically said. It said, you could come from anywhere and be anything you want in this country. That's exactly what I've done.
Do you believe in the American Dream or has it passed through time?
Yes. I am optimistic and have faith in people's resourcefulness, inventiveness and sheer guts to keep this country moving.

4. I don't have pet peeves, I have whole kennels of irritation.
It's been asked before, probably weekly, but what's irritating you today?
I did not get a callback on a very important matter today.

5. I don't look like Halle Berry. But chances are, she's going to end up looking like me.
What do you think you'll end up looking like? (A picture would help.)
Depends on how many lifts I get and my genes. I'll just be an older version of NOW. ;-}

6. I grew up in a time when it would never have occurred to anyone to tell me there was anything I couldn't do.
Has anyone told you that you could not do something?
I was told I would not find a job in this economy. I found and was hired for 7 in the past 13 months...

7. I want Carl Sagan to explain the sky to me.
Is there anybody dead that you'd like to talk to?
My mother. I'd like to know about the post-death journey she took and if dead people's spirits are really around us and part of the universal energy, (as has been my theory for years).

8. If every American donated five hours a week, it would equal the labor of 20 million full-time volunteers.
Have you ever done volunteer work?
I have helped the Salvation Army (via my ex-workplace) serving a meal, helped in California as a blind person companion in a program there, and most notably, I helped with an elderly christmas celebration a couple years in a row when I lived in England. It was for the Mayor of Islington's Annual Christmas Party which is held for destitute elderly people living in that area. I helped load these fragile people onto a bus and then helped served them dinner at the party and walked them to the restroom. I found it all really gratifying.

9. It's being willing to walk away that gives you strength and power - if you're willing to accept the consequences of doing what you want to do.
Have you ever walked away from a job and regretted it?

10. Normal is in the eye of the beholder.
Are you normal? Explain.
I'm quite normal...the rest of the world is not, apparently.
