Do You Know What You're Having?

On Fridays, 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. On to this week's topics of discussion...


1. I have two young daughters, and each time my wife and I didn't know the sex until a little girl popped out to meet us. If I have any more kids, I would do the same thing. It was such a wonderful and bizarre feeling not knowing until the last second. But the obsessive planner in me completely understands why people find out. Did you (or would you) find out what you were having?

2. Think back to high school. What class or teacher had the most impact on the rest of your life?

3. One day back in 2006, I checked my voicemail and heard this:

One new message is in your mailbox. First message...

Hi, it's me Joe Piscopo! Yes it's me, Joe Piscopo!

I'm sorry to come into your home like this. I just wanted to make sure that all my friends get out and vote on election day. You know I'm a Democrat but I'm going to vote for Tom Kean.

Always be proud to be from the state of New Jersey. And get out and vote!

Have you gotten any robocalls from '80s celebrities this (or any) election cycle?

4. Time for another edition of 'what are you reading? (Do you recommend it?)'

[Have a great weekend! See all the previous Friday Happy Hour transcripts.]

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!
