What You Wanted To Be When You Grew Up

Original image

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. Very casual. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. When I was growing up, I always said I wanted to be the managing editor of a mid-size magazine's website. OK, maybe not always. When I was very young, I told people I wanted to be a game show host. I had my I-want-to-be-a-college-dean phase, which followed my I-want-to-be-a-lawyer phase—which really just meant I briefly owned some LSAT prep books. What did you want to be when you grew up? Did it happen? If not, are you disappointed?


2. We've talked before about movies you watch at least once a year. What about books? Is there anything you re-read each year?


3. What's the _flossiest pilgrimage you've ever made? I'll leave _flossiest up for interpretation, but think of it as a kinda nerdy vacation many of your friends would not enjoy (but many of us will probably be jealous).

4. Time for another edition of have you seen any good movies lately? Since we dumped our Netflix account in favor of the local library, we can't always get the new releases. So if you've recently watched any older, not-as-sought-after titles, let me (er, us!) know.

Have a great weekend!

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!
