On Fridays, we ask a series of unrelated questions. Reading your answers helps me get through the afternoon. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. In Alex Pappademas' excellent Blockbuster obituary, he talks about the various retailers that replaced Blockbuster stores across the country. Not in terms of replacing your movie-renting experience, but physically—what store occupies that space today? My old Blockbuster is now our town's best pizzeria. I'll take it.

2. In a recent poll, Southern accents were ranked the sexiest. If you had to adopt an accent from any part of the world, which one would you choose? 

3. What's the last really, really good book you read?

4. Your turn! Got a question for the group? Ask away!

Have a great weekend, and keep coming back all day for more 15 lists!

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!
