There was a young man from Milan
Who kept a spare nut in a can
When asked why he did it
He said "There's no limit

1) Have you ever yelled at an automated phone menu "SPEAK TO A FUCKING HUMAN" (or similar)? Yeah, of course!
2) How much do you ride a bike (of the non-motorized variety). Not. At. All.
3) How old is my sister? 42.
4) Did you get to take a vacation since the covid crap? And if so... where did you go? Glenfinnan for a couple of nights.

6) Caffeine-free or fully-leaded? FULLY-LEADED (otherwise what's the point?)
7) Complete this limerick:
There was a young man from Milan
Who kept a spare nut in a can
When asked why he did it
He said "There's no limit!
If I can can a nut that's my plan!"

1) Have you ever yelled at an automated phone menu "SPEAK TO A FUCKING HUMAN" (or similar)? Yes. "HOW ABOUT A GOD-DAMNED PERSON?"
2) How much do you ride a bike (of the non-motorized variety)Not as much as I'd like. A few times this summer, maybe 40 miles total.
3) How old is my sister? I didn't know you had a sister, but I'll guess 42.
4) Did you get to take a vacation since the covid crap? And if so... where did you go? Sort of. Went to my GF's house for a few days.
5) What thing that you have grown (other than your children) are you most proud of? I once grew some Bloody Butcher corn and the stalks grew to 14 feet. It was Findhorn all over again.
6) Caffeine-free or fully-leaded? I'm coffee ambivalent. It's usually fulled leaded bc that's what's made. Sidebar: despite the trope of espresso being super-jolty there is less caffeine in darker roasts; the roasting process destroys caffeine.
7) Complete this limerick:
There was a young man from Milan
Who kept a spare nut in a can
When asked why he did it
He said "There's no limit
to the depravity of the the trump administration"

8) Chips/crisps or a chocolate bar? Tough call. chips=french fries. Or a Lindt hazelnut milk chocolate bar.
9) Which surprise animal encounter made you scream the loudest? Longish story that I think I recounted here once but the upshot is that a weasel stopped chasing a rabbit and decided to charge me. He got about 8 feet from me and I pointed at him and shouted "KNOCK IT OFF!" He went back after the rabbit.
10) Who is your favorite comedian? Kathleen Madigan So. Fucking. Funny. Esp. if you are Irish and were raised Catholic.
11) Running or Swimming?Swimming

(she turned 47 today) She has been referred to previously here as "Aunt Scary". Apparently -I learned recently- she really doesn't like that moniker (Scary is similar to her real name so I used it once here to refer to her as it seemed to go well with the beestmonster theme..... and beest liked it so we sort of adopted it....)

1) Have you ever yelled at an automated phone menu "SPEAK TO A FUCKING HUMAN" (or similar)? Yes I have, that exact phrase, as a matter of fact.

2) How much do you ride a bike (of the non-motorized variety) Never, any more. I used to ride regularly, until just a few years ago.

3) How old is my sister? 47.

4) Did you get to take a vacation since the covid crap? And if so... where did you go? Yes, I went to the hospital. I wouldn't recommend it.

5) What thing that you have grown (other than your children) are you most proud of? I've grown some pretty nice recreational herbage in the past.

6) Caffeine-free or fully-leaded? Caffeine-free, thank you.

7) Complete this limerick:
There was a young man from Milan
Who kept a spare nut in a can
When asked why he did it
He said "There's no limit
But it'd be weird if I kept it in a pan"

8) Chips/crisps or a chocolate bar? Chips, I suppose. No more sugar for the Gravdigr.

9) Which surprise animal encounter made you scream the loudest? Spider.

10) Who is your favorite comedian? I guess I would have to go with Dave Chappell.

11) Running or Swimming? No.

I swear I didn't see that before I answered.

Do I get points, or something? Anything?

1) Have you ever yelled at an automated phone menu "SPEAK TO A FUCKING HUMAN" (or similar)?
I do have a yelling voice and it's not completely safe for indoor use. I have raised my regular indoor voice in such circumstances, but actual yelling, no. (I have felt trapped by the automated attendant much like these poor bastards)

2) How much do you ride a bike (of the non-motorized variety)
Once a week. Today we got up and out early and rode around Clear Creek Trail. It was lovely.

3) How old is my sister?
Rude.

4) Did you get to take a vacation since the covid crap? And if so... where did you go?
We've had a number of road trips here in the After Time. We've been as far as Spokane, about 350 miles.

5) What thing that you have grown (other than your children) are you most proud of?
Older and wiser (one moreso than the the other...)

6) Caffeine-free or fully-leaded?
Caffeine is my friend.

7) Complete this limerick:
There was a young man from Milan
Who kept a spare nut in a can
When asked why he did it
He said "There's no limit
An Onan can plan, and began.

8) Chips/crisps or a chocolate bar?
Chocolate. Just because you punctuate it like that doesn't make it a legitimate question.

9) Which surprise animal encounter made you scream the loudest?
This one. To be fair, it wasn't a whole animal.

10) Who is your favorite comedian?
I probably miss Robin Williams the most. What a genius.

11) Running or Swimming?
Running is more social for me because if I'm running, you better be running too cause we're about to die from whatever's chasing us. So naturally I prefer swimming.
