Q & A with your token gay....

For something a little different on alfred lives here, rather than write snarky comments or bring you the latest and greatest Lohan-free pop culture trivia, I am going to answer some questions. Think of it as an icebreaker game, or a police interrogation.

1. What do you add to your coffee?
Nothing - basic black.

2. What are you reading now?
I have two on the go now -- Love is a Mix Tape, a really cool smart funny piece of fiction that is jam packed with 70s and 80s musical reference, and the new bestselling historical biography Cleopatra.

3. Do you own a gun?
Nope. Liberal Canadian pacifist here.

4. Are you registered to vote?
Yes, and I take it seriously.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
No, I went through so much with allergy poking and prodding when I was a kid that it's all run of the mill now.

6. What do you think of hot dogs?
I don't wanna think of what is in them, cuz I still eat them. And I know it cannot be good.

7. Favorite Christmas Song?
Raised Jewish, so no real attachment to Christmas music. I like a lot of it, though having worked retail for all these years means it is on an endless loop, so I tend to get sick of it long before the season is over. I do love the Annie Lennox Christmas CD from last year.

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
Juice. Water. Coffee. I consume a lot of water, all day.

9. Can you do push ups?
Yes. Not many.

10. What's your favourite TV show?
Of current shows, The Good Wife. Judging by hours I spend watching, The Golden Girls; it is on several times a day here, and I watch whenever I stumble across it, even though I own them all and have seen them all multiple times.

11. What’s your favorite piece of jewelery?
Wedding band.

12. Favorite hobby?
For the past year, I would have to say blogging, both writing this one and reading many others our there.

13. Do you work with people who idolize you?
Hell no.

14. Do you have ADD?
I would say no, I just get bored easily, though my husband might disagree. And he calls my dog ADD Alfred pretty damn often.

15. What’s one trait that you hate about yourself?
Impatient. An am an emotional eater, is that a trait?

16. What’s your middle name?
Daniel. I don't mind it, however as someone who stutters, especially as a kid who stuttered, having the names Brahm and Daniel was not fortunate.

17. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment.
I need some water. It's late, I should go to bed. And Alfie snores louder than a very large horse.

18. Name 3 things you bought yesterday.
Book on kindle, teriyaki chicken wrap for lunch, diet coke.

19. Name 4 beverages you regularly drink.
Diet Coke, Water, Coke Zero, Coffee.

20. Current worry right now?
Can't think of anything. Oh crap. Which is weird, I usually have a list of worries. Okay, Tyler Perry putting out more movies worries me.

21. What side do you dress to?
I am so not going to answer that. Getting a little personal here, aren't we? Why didn't I edit these damn questions?

22. Favorite place to be?
Home, curled up with my husband and our dogs beside the fireplace.

23. How did you bring in the New Year?
Home, just getting into bed, after basically staring at the clock, begging for it to be midnight already.

24.Where would you like to go?
To Italy, Greece and Spain. And on a long cruise.

25. Name three people you wish would go away.
Charlie Sheen, Halle Berry, the entire cast of Jersey Shore.

The idea for this blog, and the questions, are from the always entertaining blog

Nice list and answers...The Good Wife is my favorite also.

Rusty Hoe said...

A little glimpse into the mind of Alfie's human. Nice. Though I think I would add the Kardashians to your list of people who should just go away.

Lauren said...

I once proposed putting people such as those from Jersey Shore on an island and making their attempts at rescue a reality show. Because seriously, if Gilligan couldn't do it with the Professor, what hope does... that Situation creature have? As to the ADD thing, you could always change the meaning of the letters.

Vodka Logic said...

Great answers.. I love me some reality tv but that Jersey shore show is disgusting. Always seems to be on at the gym whenever I'm there. Thank god for ipods and netflix.

I love the Annie Lennox Christmas cd as well... did a blog on it in fact.

Ray's Cowboy said...

Love getting to know you better thanks. NOW answer number 21. LOL


BeckEye said...

Love is a Mix Tape is one of my favorite books. And Rob Sheffield is one of my Facebook friends!

Kevin said...

I have the perfect long cruise, honey ... Cunard's World Voyage. 2012 they will be celebrating 90 years since the first Cunard world cruise.

Rick Modien said...

Nicely done. Great to get to know you a little better.
Thanks for sharing.

Really enjoyed this post. I agree with you on most of your answers. Was pleasantly surprised that you, too, wish that Oprah's darling, Tyler Perry, would stop making movies. I would make one change in your list: No. 25 - Substitute the name Palin for Halle Berry.

Clare and Gary said...

Very nice Brahm... Gary has ADD, often
I'm going to pinch for my blog.. I'll link back to you of course :-)

Tyler Perry really does need to be stopped. I have managed to keep the cast of Jersey Shore off of my radar so far.
I think ADD dogs make the most adorable dogs. Just sayin'.
