1 -- Ivanka's prettier, so, Ivanka.
2 -- No.
3 -- Pink for skin, yellow for urine, you get it the other way around, you should seek medical attention immediately.
4 -- I've dumpster-dived for food.
5 -- This one is too tough, the best wine (that I can afford) is better than the best beer, and the worst beer is far worse than the worst wine, so, wine. Huh, that was a surprise.
6 --
7 -- W(o)nder W(o)man.
8 -- In 9th grade, I made a chess table. The board is birch and walnut, with a wide mitered frame which sits on a pedestal and base of birch I turned on the lathe. I received an award for xyz Industrial Arts of the year in the school district for it. Mr Martindale was my woodshop teacher; my fond thanks to him for starting my lifelong love affair with woodworking. I still have the table.
9 -- Roses. They're equal in beauty and superior in fragrance. Though the exotic novelty of shapes and colors across the range of orchids is impressive, I do not have the temperament (nor the equipment) to keep them any longer than it takes those poor hothouse exiles you buy for $30 at the grocery store in their little six-inch jails to die. Roses, I can enable roses to thrive.
10 -- It's not pizza, that's for sure. Crust plus... ??? sauce. That's a pizza with one topping? Crust, sauce, plus one more? Ok, pepperoni. That's still a pathetic "pizza".

1) Kanye West or Ivanka Trump? don't wuss out ....choose.....

Is this a trick question? If we're talking huggin' n kissin', Ivanka. If we're talking 'findin 'em ass up in a ditch'...Kanye.

2) Was that too tough a question to open with?

Not really.

3) Yellow or pink?

Pink. You know why.

4) When you were really broke, what's the most notable/sad thing you did/do to save or scrape together a few pennies?

I cashed in some aluminum cans. I carried them in in my hands. I wanna say it was 16 cans, smashed flat. Got me a cheeseburger. I already had some change.

5) beer, wine or neither?

Beer.

6) what is your current favorite word?

Aspirin.

7) Wonder Woman or Elastagirl?

Wonder Woman.

8) what grade school art project were you most proud of/do you remember most vividly (and why, if you care to share....)

I do not recall any 'art projects'.

9) roses or orchids?

Are we looking, or smelling? If we're smelling, roses. If we're looking, orchids.

10) Your pizza has only one topping. What is it?

Pepperoni. One topping does not necessarily a pathetic pizza make, but, ya can't skimp on topping with just one topping, I always order extra pepperoni if that's all I'm getting. Although my personal preference is pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, and bacon.

8) what grade school art project were you most proud of/do you remember most vividly (and why, if you care to share....)

Grade school. That was K-6 in my town. Easy answer. I was in 2nd grade. In some sort of free time in class, you could go to different stations, and I chose to play with the clay. It was that gray stuff that had a distinctive smell and was kind of oily. Anyway, I really got into it. I made a witch's face. An amazing portrait. Never before had anyone in the second grade made anything so impressive. The other students were all talking about how good it was. It was generally agreed that I was the best ever. The witch had a crooked nose with a wart, and very detailed strands of hair poking out under her hat. She had a buckle on her hat, like a pilgrim.

Free time was over, so I left the portrait in the clay station. On the walk home, my friend, Timmy Smith, was complimenting me on how detailed the witch was.

The next day, during free time, Joey decided he was going to play with the clay. And he was about to destroy my witch to make something else. So of course I went to the teacher and explained very reasonably that it would be a travesty of justice to destroy such a masterpiece. It had to be shared with the world.

But she said that the clay was for the whole class to use, and I got to use it yesterday. Today was Joey's turn. He crumpled my amazing witch portrait up into a ball and made some dumb thing or other.

I really meant up to grade 12, I guess, but American class and school nomenclature is still a little confusing to me

I call shenanigans. The choice was supposed to be between Taylor Swift and Ivanka Trump; but, Kayne West upstaged Swifty again like he did during the 2009 VMAs

Not enough sand.


2) Was that too tough a question to open with?


I marinated it in HP sauce and Sous-Vided it, so, no.


3) Yellow or pink?


Cadmium yellow deep


4) When you were really broke, what's the most notable/sad thing you did/do to save or scrape together a few pennies?


Returned bottles


5) beer, wine or neither?

Beer, mostly


6) what is your current favorite word?

Languid


7) Wonder Woman or Elastagirl?

Hmmm. Wonder Woman


8) what grade school art project were you most proud of/do you remember most vividly (and why, if you care to share....)

11th grade ceramics I made a series of face casts and then made various masks for the faces, Some were inspired by my Ancient Greek History class and depicted warriors killed in battle (spear points through the back of the face protruding through the mask, and stuff inspired by the surrealists and H.P.Lovecraft. (worms and other corruption spouting/sprouting from various orifices. Standard high achieving angst-y teenager stuff.


9) roses or orchids?

Roses for my piano and orchids for my, wait, no. Roses for my orga... nope, not that either. With my last dollar I'd buy Beach tomatoes for my soul before orchids for my stomach. Or something like that.


10) Your pizza has only one topping. What is it?

My pizza is layered thus: dough, sauce*, grated mozz: whole milk, skim milk 1:1 (rich flavor, less oily.) If it needs a topping in addition to that it would be whole cloves of caramelized garlic.

*crushed tomatoes, several whole cloves of garlic, oregano, thyme, rosemary, two cans of anchovies, blended in a blender until smooth.

Fun fact: Despite more than a half dozen people swearing up and down that they hate anchovies and can't stand the taste and could smell them a mile away, all of them have complimented me on how awesome the sauce is, because I NEVER TOLD THEM THERE WERE ANCHOVIES IN IT. Confirmation bias?

Newb Interrogation/Shareholic Dwellar Quiz May 2017

1) Kanye West or Ivanka Trump? Kanye West
2) Was that too tough a question to open with? Tricksy, vewy vewy tricksy ....
3) Yellow or pink? Pink.
4) When you were really broke, what's the most notable/sad thing you did/do to save or scrape together a few pennies? I did (and still do, sometimes) wear clothes beyond their usable life. I've had shirts which I've deemed too knackered to take to the charity shop, so I keep on wearing them myself. But really I've been very fortunate.
5) beer, wine or neither? BOTH
6) what is your current favorite word? Superb!
7) Wonder Woman or Elastagirl? Who is Elastagirl? Is it me after eating a lot?
8) what grade school art project were you most proud of/do you remember most vividly (and why, if you care to share....). The only school art project I remember at all was a still life of a violin set up in its case. I spent three weeks' art classes meticulously drawing it and I was very pleased with how it was turning out, though not yet finished. The next week it had been removed. "But I hadn't finished! I was enjoying drawing that! I thought it was coming along well!", I said. "We're doing something else now!" said Teacher briskly. I gave up art as soon as the curriculum allowed after that and have always felt that I am crap at drawing.
9) roses or orchids? Roses, so long as they are fragrant.
10) Your pizza has only one topping. What is it? Yeah, no, it's not a pizza then is it. So cheese and tomato are a given. Then it's peperoni all the way!

Amen.

Dry, over-cooked, and/or rubbery mushrooms can ruin a pizza for me. And not over-large.

1) Kanye West or Ivanka Trump? don't wuss out ....choose.....
Kanye. Anyone that President Obama refers to as a "Jackass" has my vote. Nothing against Obama. I like the guy. But Kanye is a character. He has actual substance. There is something there, even if it is jackassishness. Ivanka is an empty shell of a porcelain doll. Nothing there.
2) Was that too tough a question to open with?
Yes. So hard it scared me away from most of the quiz first time around.
3) Yellow or pink?
Yellow. No contest. Think about how well yellow and black go together. Like this. With a little black around the edges.

4) When you were really broke, what's the most notable/sad thing you did/do to save or scrape together a few pennies?
Basically embezzled money from my parents around 30 years ago. They were traveling abroad and asked me to pay their bills with their money. I paid some of my own too.
5) beer, wine or neither?
wine
6) what is your current favorite word?
I have to go back to my childhood, to remember ever having a favorite. "Endoplasmic Reticulum"
7) Wonder Woman or Elastagirl?
I was just going to answer Wonder Woman, but I felt I owed it to Elastagirl to look her up to remember who the hell she was. And now I have to answer Elastagirl. Wonder Woman is eye candy, but Elastagirl is wife material.
8) what grade school art project were you most proud of/do you remember most vividly (and why, if you care to share....)
That witch I told you about. Fucking Joey.
9) roses or orchids?
Roses. On bushes. Not the long stem ones.
10) Your pizza has only one topping. What is it?
Nothing. Dough, olive oil, 4-5 cloves of pressed garlic, several shakes of ground red pepper, finely grated high quality romano cheese, coarsely grated high quality mozzarella cheese
