4. 7 or 11?
5. What do you put in your coffee apart from a spoon?
6. You get a free 10-session art/craft class –what class do you choose? (Remember, only 10 sessions are free….)
7. Pasta or Rice?
8. Which word do you most enjoy mis-saying or mis-pronouncing (e.g. Viola instead of Voila, Destructions instead of Instructions, Sparrow Guts for Asparagus, Home Despot….)

I AM THE DIDJERIDOO MASTER ~ LET ME PLAY YOU THE SONG OF MY PEOPLE

4. 7 or 11?

On the first roll it doesn't matter, both numbers are good, you double your pass line bet. But on point rolls, you only want 11s. In fact, don't even say the first number at the table. Some people find it to be bad luck.

5. What do you put in your coffee apart from a spoon?

Half and Half, no sugar. And not the ultra-pasteurized. My nose picks up a sulphur scent from that stuff.

8. Which word do you most enjoy mis-saying or mis-pronouncing?

I pronounce "root" as if it rhymes with "foot". An instructor I had 34 years ago said it like that, and I thought it was funny. But since then I could not stop. ("root" is the administrative account under Linux/Unix)

I also pronounce "berry" as if it rhymes with "hurry". And all the associates, strawburry, blueburry, etc.

I also pronounce the "p" in raspburry.

As far as Home Despot goes, the name is, "Home de Pot".


9. What have you most enjoyed about the year so far?

Corporate job is still working out well!

10. How are your legs positioned RFN?

So BajaBoy is employed by U of M as a welding trainer and has his own welder and table, and I can teach you to throw a pot. When are all y'all arriving for the house party?

There's Arc welding, Torch welding, TIG welding, MIG welding, Tack welding, Spot welding and Electron Beam welding. Each of those specialties has sub specialties, and that's without getting into complications like overhead and under water shit. It's not a simple craft.
