Friday Happy Hour: Talking in Your Sleep

1. I've said a lot of crazy things while sleeping. On Monday night, my wife decided to write some of them down. Here are two of the subjects she claims I was talking about:

"We can all sing '9 to 5.' And then we can just hum that last part where it goes, 'hmmmm.'"

"I was playing croquet last weekend. And Robby, that little bastard, he beat me!"

I was not playing croquet last weekend. I don't know who Robby is. And I don't think there's a part of "9 to 5" that goes "hmmmm." Rather than waste any time analyzing my 3am babbling, why don't you tell us about crazy things you've said or done while sleeping? If nobody's ever taken notes for you, you can share something you've witnessed.

2. When I'm forced to socialize with strangers for an extended period of time (weddings come to mind, or other parties with assigned seating), I like to ask how people spent their summers during college. So even though nobody's forcing us to sit and chat right now, I'll ask anyway "“ how'd you spend your summers in college? And if we have any college students in the audience right now, let us know what you've got on tap this summer.

3. Are there any foods you intentionally ruin before eating? Maybe "ruin" isn't the right word, but I enjoy really soggy cereal. I'll pour myself a bowl of Raisin Bran, splash on some milk, and stick it in the fridge to age to perfection (estimated time: 10 minutes).

4. About two years ago, one of our writers pitched the idea of a story about bizarrely named stretches of interstate. We could never come up with very many, but I'm not giving up. Are there any in your part of the world?

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
