What's Your Middle Name and Would You Like to Change It?

Original image

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. When someone asks if you've read a book, and you've actually listened to the audiobook version, do you point that out when answering?

2. Tomorrow is Middle Name Pride Day. (Before I forget: Happy Middle Name Pride Day!) I have so much pride in my middle name I use it exclusively. But pretend for a second we weren't celebrating our real middle names. If you could re-middle-name yourself, what new name would you choose?


3. This question relates to wherever you are right now — work, home, school, the dentist, the subway, etc. You have to install a coin-operated arcade game in that space. For that specific spot, what game would be the most successful?


4. I'm going to go all focus group-y on you. I'm loving Erik Sass' series on World War I. In case you've missed it, he's covering the events that led up to the conflict exactly 100 years after they happened. I asked this question last year, but just in case something new has popped into your head, what other events should we be giving this treatment?


[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!
