You Asked, Susie Answers

All the questions you were willing to ask about Susie have been answered!

What does she like to drink? Which male blogger would she make her cabin boy?

Click it and find out.

Where do you find the time for your own blog with all you do at The Alliance, the Munuviana thingy, over at Madfish Willie's getting in trouble, raising
hell with Harvey, and yet your blog is... well, it just "is".

I think the word you're looking for is "neglected". Actually, I have no
life. I blog, go to work, blog, sleep, blog, go to my spare time I

Who is your favorite blogger: Harvey or Madfish Willie?

You mean after Frank, right? Now this is the kind of question that's going to make somebody's feelings hurt. I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Sorry Michael.

What's your favorite alcoholic beverage?

My all-time favorite drink is kaluha and cream. I don't drink them very
often though because they taste so good it's hard to keep track of how many
there've been, and before you know it, somebody's naked. For everyday
socializing I like beer. One of my brothers has a kegerator that he keeps stocked with Michelob Amber Bock (which seems to be easier to buy by the keg than the six pack). I like going to his house.

What would you buy as a gift for Daniel?

I would get Daniel a wallet made out of duct tape, since there's a pretty good chance he doesn't have one already.

What is one thing you would change about yourself?

My spinsterhood. I hope in some alternate universe I'm happily married with
a houseful of kids.

You have to spend the rest of your life on a luxury yacht with a full staff
and one Munuvian. Who is it and why?

This is too easy! It would have to be Pixy Misa--he's such a Renaissance Man that there'd always be something to talk about so it would never get boring. Plus he deserves luxury for all the generousity he has shown to other bloggers. And he likes cats.

You can make one non-Munuvian blogger the cabin boy. Who is it?

LOL! Bill C, because his complaints would keep us in stitches.

Which bloggers influence you the most?

Tough question. Frank J, Rachel Lucas and Misha are the reasons I started blogging, but the query is phrased in the present tense...Who has the power to sway or affect me? The Munuvians mostly, I think.

You inherit millions of dollars...what is the first thing you buy?

Well, I would buy a house, but that would take some shopping time, and a
Dell computer, but that would take some shipping time, so I guess health
insurance would be the first thing I'd buy.

If you could have any car, what would it be?

A Hunter green one--I'm kind of tired of blue. I suppose the person who
asked this wants an answer like "a Splenda ZT 360 with overhead shocks and
titanium cam protector" but I don't speak automobilese. Someone asks me "what kind of car was it?" and I answer "white". I know the difference between a pick-up truck, a mini-van and a sedan, but that's about it. So I would like a Hunter green sedan with a conveniently located ashtray and air-conditioning. If it has a radio, too, that would be good.

You can only read one blog a day and it isn't Frank J's. Whose would it be?

This is just mean. But if I have to choose, I'd pick my own, so I
could check for spelling and grammar errors.

Let's say you have to choose. Someone's holding a gun to your head. Alliance or Munuviana?

Who asked this? Jennifer? Daniel? Fear not, I would choose Munuvia over the Alliance if forced to. But I would be really grumpy....

So, because you work in a theater, what's your favorite movie?

The really sad thing is, I used to see way more movies when I worked
at the video store than I do now that I work at a movie theater. At the
theater we usually only get one or two new movies a week--at the video store
we averaged 5 or 6 new ones a week, plus we got demos of upcoming videos,
some of which we never bought, so I got to see lots of good but obscure
movies like "The Broken Hearts Club" and "Blow Dry". And at the video store we could take the movies home to watch, whereas if I want to see a movie now I have to go into work on my day off. Just the other day I went to see "Matchstick Men" and had to handle about five problems just because I was there. So I have gotten to the point where I take a pass on anything that only marginally interests me.
Um, what was the question?

What do you think about movies with intermissions in them?

They're long.

Of the blogs you read regularly, do you think any will get huge?

Well, Silver Blue posts a lot every day, and so does Tiger, so they're pretty big already.

Kermit or Grover?

I've never understood the appeal of frog legs, so I guess I'd have to go
for a nice thick Grover steak medium-well and hope it doesn't taste too gamey.

What's more important, a sense of humor or a sense of confidence?

Humor. People with a good sense of humor will gain confidence every time
they make people fall to the floor laughing.

Who was your first crush?

When I was in kindergarten there was the most gorgeous boy named Bob Vertin in my class. He was blond, blue-eyed and very studly for a 6 year old. I
worshipped him til my family moved away. Bob, if you're reading this, we were
in Mrs. Garrett's first grade class together at St. Paul's--email me! These days I am attracted to brunettes, because all other blondes seem insipid after Bob.

If you could sleep with (but ONLY sleep, no sex) with any man, who would it be?

You people are NO fun! Hmm...someone warm, cuddly and hirsute--Tom Selleck.

Will you be posting any more boobie pictures?

Only for special occasions, like Bill's second blogiversary.

The yacht would proably sink. Then the dinghy would sink. Then the inflatable life raft would sink. Then our life jackets would turn out to be faulty and we'd sink.

Then we'd get rescued by singing dolphins and taken off to Atlantis II and set to work in the Anchovy Mines.

No, no yacht for me.

So...Can I buy you a kaluha & cream, Susie? ;-)

Posted by: Harvey Olson at November 10, 2003 10:34 AM

Yes, Harvey, thank you--but I'm trusting you to stop me at two!!

Posted by: Susie at November 10, 2003 11:16 AM

I always wondered if people who worked at theaters got to watch the shows... but the free popcorn issue was never mentioned.

Posted by: LeeAnn at November 10, 2003 06:33 PM

Here I thought she would not even mention me, then she says I am big ... I have always thought so also, so wish they would quit spammin' me with offers for pills to make me bigger.
