Yesterday I posted the charge to "Ask Anything" – so today I’m kicking back with the responses. Really, trying to be straight up and non-stupid – but no promises.
- "ok, give me your top ten desert island books and why?" – Adele/Toast
To be honest, I kept reading your "question" as "top ten dessert island…" and kept thinking of apple pie, cookie dough ice cream, and Mom’s strawberry cake. But you asked for books on a deserted island, right? Don’t know if I’d take ten or not, and only a couple of these would be books already read – others, I want to finish:
The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Chabon
The Life of Pi, Martel
Divine Conspiracy, Willard
Rise to Rebellion, Shaara
The Shack, Young
John Adams, McCullough
- "Dracula or the wolfman?" – George
I would take Dracula in just about anything. Wolfman probably loses all sense of himself when changing full-on, but Dracula is always in the intelligent blood-sucking persona. Give Wolfman a t-bone and he’s your best friend, but Dracula would take a bit more to bring to docility.
- "Woah! Seems like every time I stop by the design has changed. Make it the way it was when I first came here! (Whenever that was)" – Joel
Is that a question? Benefit of the doubt being what it is, I’ll take the time to apologize for my obvious fickleness when it comes to blog layout. I’m not much for CSS, so I never took the time to do much with my blog layout other than pick and choose from Typepad’s multiple designs. I’m a sucker for trying something new, but I seem to come back to something fairly quiet and non-descript. So this will stay as is for a while – at least til there’s a few more added to the Design tab, right?
- "Why do people use the phrase "I could care less," when they really could not? Doesn’t make sense." – Jason
One thought would be that we’re all illiterate idiots who get it wrong, meaning to say, "I couldn’t care less". That would make much more sense logically. But honestly, I couldn’t care less.
