Friday Spies

The latest Friday Spies questions from BTQ.

1. What is a food you have tried but will never eat again, and what
don't you like about it?

Kimchi. I lived in Korea for two years, and kimchi is a staple there. I tried it once and it is literally the most vile thing I have ever tasted. Any food you have to leave in an earthernware pot on your roof for a few months before you can eat it has some serious issues. Also, lutefisk. BLECH!

2. What are your five favorite possessions?

1. Jimmy Buffett Box Set
2. Any of my pictures of me and M., but I especially like one taken during our cross country road trip in a little bar in Northern California...we look happy and healthy and relaxed. It was right before law school started.
3. My couch. The last fight that killed my second marriage was over getting a couch. It was the first thing I bought on my own when I moved out. I love it.
4. My beer glass collection. I have an entire cabinet of pint glasses that I've collected at various bars and from breweries and stuff. I heart beer, and so the glasses are mighty important!
5. The quilt my mom made me. She hand-quilts...this one has the moon and stars, took nearly a year to make, is queen-size, and has over 500,000 handstitches.

3. How do you deal with confrontation? Do you seek it out or do you
avoid it? Are you more apt to be the confronter or the confronted?

I think people will be surprised by this, but I am *extremely* non-confrontational for the most part. I will generally just work around things rather than confront someone. I try very hard to be accomodating because, for whatever reason, I hate to have a big scene. Big emotional moments, especially anything that could be described as an "outburst" make me very, very, uncomfortable.

That being said, when pushed to my limit, or when the issue is certain subjects that are near and dear to me, I have no problem defending myself or my friends. When pushed directly I will come right back at the person, and because I can be a bit...uh...acid-tongued, it is often highly unpleasant for the person that pushed me.

4. What will Michael Jackson be doing five years from now?

Designing children's bedroom furnishings and hosting his own TV show..."The PedoFiles."

5. What is the worst movie sequel ever made, what is the best sequel
ever, and what movie should have had a sequel but didn't?

Worst Sequel Ever Made: I'm gonna go with Weekend at Bernie's II. Speed II and Men In Black II get honorable mentions, as do Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and whatever the last Lethal Weapon movie was really terrible.

Best Sequel Ever Made: I'll be honest, I really enjoyed The Scorpion King. That could possibly be attributable to the stunning near nudity of The Rock though. I like Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade, and I also liked The Sum of All Fears (not really a sequel...more like a series...and yes I realized everyone else hated it).

Should Have Had A Sequel: Office Space. Any John Hughes movie from the '80's. Really, the ones I can think of DID have sequels, they were just not very good...for instance, I would love to see a GOOD sequel to Bridget Jones.
