Since she is boycotting my blog for 'philosophical reasons' (and general 'being a poopy head' reasons) she will never read this. Cory because she 'gets' me more than anyone I ever met and her laughter is like music to me. Milla, for reasons that should be clear to everyone. If the island has ANY zombies we NEED her.

FAVORITE MONOPOLY PIECE? It begins and ends with the magic hat. I won't play and have NEVER played that game without being the magic hat.
FAVORITE CHILDHOOD BOARD GAME? - Risk - don't make alliances with me. If you do I will stab you in the back and take your cards. When you make that mistake, (and you will), and I crush you, (and I will) you are not allowed to cry because I WARNED you before the game even started.
SPIRIT ANIMAL? Polar Bear
FAVORITE ANIMAL? The noble domesticated house cat
BEST AND WORST PARTS OF LIVING IN THE FUTURE? The jet packs? Ha, that's funny. They will never allow the release of jet pack technology to the general public. But I CAN have a atmosphere destroying SUV right?
DO YOU PREFER CATS OR DOGS? I will not dignify that question with a response. No, I will. Dogs are suckups who give it away too easily. If they were girls they would be easier to make than a peanut butter sandwich.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR SPICE GIRL NAME IF YOU WERE IN THE GROUP? Big Daddy Spice - just roooools off the tongue doesn't it?
BEST NAME FOR A BAND YOU MADE UP AND IS NOT CURRENTLY IN USE? - Paris Gargoyles
DO YOU PREFER COKE OR PEPSI? Coke is an evil corporation working with the aliens and the cephalopods and their attempt at taking over the surface world of this planet. Pepsi is good and benevolent and supports my efforts at freeing the human thralls from our tentacled overlords. We got sponsors bitches!

Well, that is quite the informative post there! Good luck with the job aspirations! ;)

And hey - COKE ROCKS!

Cal: The Top Hat? Dude, please. Next you're gonna tell me you insist on playing with it open side up. God, how I hate that. Top hatters always think they are soooo cool. They're like, Oh, look at me! I'm the Top Hat!

I like the Iron. That's right. The Iron. Hey, it's even got a handle.

Loved the part about dogs. Bad Jerome has actually converted me from a dog guy. He was homeless and came into my apartment like a religious missionary from the cult of cats. He broke me of my evil dog ways. -- Mykal

Mykal said...

Calvin: I forgot to mention: Milla Jovovich! I am so completely with you on that one. Absolute Fox of the Universe, pure and simple. Google her - try to find a bad picture, I dare you. Plus, she actually seems like a rational human being.

And most importantly, as you practically point out, very useful in the coming Zombie or Mutant Wars -- Mykal

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

Top Haters ARE cool and Iron users drool. Being the Iron is almost worse that being the THIMBLE which we both can agree are the lowest forms of life in Monopoly land. The thimble is so peasant. They only ever own property on that cheap street and ONE utility. I mock them because they also 'collect' one dollars to have some sense of accomplishment and do that little dance they do when they win second prize in a beauty contest.

You forgot that Milla is an actual action hero so how can we not love her. She does the wet work that girlie girls would never do. Resident Evil 4 - 100 Millas each with their own zombie killing style and provocative outfits. MMMMM boy that is good viewing.

Mykal said...

Calvin: I will, with dignity, ignore your comments about Iron users for the moment so that we may find common ground in hating those urchins that go Thimble. Your observations abut their ilk are accurate. They also arrange their measly dollars all the same way.


Also, Tombstone is a classic in waiting. -- Mykal

Isn't "Big Daddy Spice" already Simon Fuller's nickname? {g}

I always kind of liked the shoe in Monopoly. The top hat is pretty cool, though. That and the sports car are probably the two most elite tokens.

Wandering Coyote said...

"I am like a sultan with my pillows." - LOL! This is hilarious!

I just saw District 9 last night - excellent! Disturbing, but excellent!

And I was just listening to The Legends of the Fall soundtrack this weekend (bought it years ago) and was reminded how beautiful the music was in that movie. I didn't care for the movie, though.

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

But..but...TRISTAN? Its had Tristan. He broke every rule of God and man and they all loved him more! And what he had to do to poor Samuel. And what happen to Elizabeth 2? Sure he had a good death but but...HE WAS TRISTAN!!!!!

Lana said...

i think i'll have to politely disagree with you on dogs v. cats. there's something about my doofy dog that makes him feel more like a special needs child than just a pet :)

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

Thats just it Lana...dogs are like a kid with Assberger's Syndrom...not their fault that they are like that so you can't fault them for what they are. Dogs need me too much and I implicidly do not trust anything that loves me unconditionally. A cat gives me a level of disrespect that I am comfortable with.
