Friday Fives

1.  Do you drink wine? Do you have a favorite wine?

yes.  Generally most reds – merlot, cab, shiraz.  Here is the thing, though, I really don’t like warm wine.  It is disgusting.  When they say ‘room temperature’, they are not meaning 72 degrees.  I so dislike a warm red, I will put two ice cubs in the glass.  I know, tacky.  What I do is this, the ’20 minute rule’.  If you are drinking a white, take it out of the fridge 20 minutes before you are going to drink it.  If you are drinking a red, put it in the fridge 20 minutes before you are going to drink it.  Works like a charm!


2.  How was your tax season?  Are you revolting?

lame as always.  Ever since we got married we have owed.  Before we were married (and filed single), we got money back.  There are probably lots of other factors, but I hate giving over even more money at tax time.
3.  What type of internet connection do I need?

red.  It’s also best to run fives.


4.  When you come upon a marauding band of Orcs, how do go about ensuring a victory.

I take that out that dvd, and just watch Princess bride all over again.


5.  When giving advice to Karl Kipper, what is the first thing you address?

the hats.  It’s old.  It used to be cute, like, for a week.  Now, it’s just sad.  Karl, you are six for christ’s sake, man up and start carrying yourself like an adult.  It’s time for you to start carrying your weight around here.

I can’t focus.  This wasn’t a great ‘Fives’.  Mostly, that is Roy’s fault for crappy questions.   See below for the real reason.

* listen, we have a MUCH bigger story breaking here.  The Governor of Texas has just threatened to secede.  Omg, this is comedy gold.  Too muh to think on right now, but you can expect to here plenty here if this story grows legs.  I mean, just… wow.  I could quit my job tomorrow and do nothing but make fun of Texas.  Let’s just sleep on this, you and I.

    I dabble in wine. I generally enjoy Chianti/Sangiovese and there is a particular Cabernet Sauvignon that I enjoy. But wine is not my drink of choice. That is raspberry Koolaid.

    2. How was your tax season? Are you revolting?
    Uneventful. Print out tax extension form. Put in envelope. Mail. Simple.

    3. What type of internet connection do I need? (from Pandora Radio FAQ)
    I want one with a personality. I am not keen on simple utilitarian tools. Cool fact, soon, very soon, there will so many choices on internet connectivity and different tools you can use – Intel is working on an interface for refrigerators so that it can keep an running grocery list and a prescribed time, send the list to the store. Digital cameras will soon have 4G technology so that photos taken can automatically be uploaded to a drive regardless where you are. A new phone is now being made, using new internet technology, that allows you to use the phone as a debit card. Waive the phone at a register station while shopping, you account is accessed and money moved to pay for the product. But with all this tech, there is little personality. I want talking computers with attitude, like on the Jetsons. And flying cars.

    This question reminds me that each spring I try to watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It is a rainy long weekend for me, so I think I will fire that up.

    5. When giving advice to Karl Kipper, what is the first thing you address?
    I would start with the teeth. Whitening of the teeth, certainly is a good thing, but Christ all Mighty, Karl, them teeth glow under the summer sun. Take a step back and look human, will ya?
