Jon over at Misplaced Keys
was looking for five people to interview in the Blog-sphere. So, I happily volunteered to take place in this hard-hitting interview
. Below are his questions and my answers. So, sit back, relax and enjoy the hardest-hitting interview this side of Joan and Melissa Rivers...1. I thought Smyrna was in Galatia? Did they dig it up whole hog and move it to Tennessee?Not that I'm aware of. Though you will notice that in Revelation, Smyna is the only church that is singled out as doing well and not falling under bad influences. It shows you what I know, but I am not really up on the long, history of Smyrna, Tennessee. It's a suburb of the great city of Nashville. It's a small town that is close to the big city, so you really get the best of both worlds, though I'd be far happier if we could get a major bookstore in the city. But we do have a library close-by, which is a priviledge I abuse far more than I should (it's all their own fault for allowing me to put books on reserve on-line, I tell you. I think the library has my house on speed-dial. Which if they'd get with the the program and have e-mail notification about when the books came in, it'd be a lot easier.) 2. Ever hear of, see, meet, touch, feel, carress, obsess over Glen Reynolds? (aka Instapundit)As far as I know, Glen has rarely, if ever stopped by the Big Orange Michael blog. Why I'm not quite sure. I've been to his blog many, many times and dream of the day that Big Orange Michael gets InstaPundit-ed. 3. Name your favorite college ice hockey team. lacrosse team. badmitton team. curling team. and football, basketball and baseball. (note since I put this under one number, it only counts as one question. :-D)Not a difficult one here. My favorite college team in any sport is, of course, the University of Tennessee. As a gradudate of UT, my blood runneth orange and I will pull for UT in any sporting event in which they are participating. I am even planning to go to a couple of games when the Vol's baseball team in in town in a few weeks to play Vanderbilt. And yes, I will be wearing the orange and white. That said, I'm not sure if the Vols have a bandmitton team or curling team, but if they were to have one and we played Florida, Alabama or Georgia, I would want us to win and win big. It's never too early to start hating Alabama (as in the University of, not the state) in my book. 4. Orange is a nice color (when added to Black) how many other colleges can you name with orange as one of their colors?Syracuse, Texas (they stole it from us, the jerks!), Florida has some (orange and blue combined together is evil, evil I tell you!). And let us never forget the Beavers of Oregon State. I am sure there are others, but there is only one, true orange. Why do I suddenly feel the need to sing a couple of dozen choruses of Rocky Top? 5. Not counting 24, list your favorite reality TV shows. (and don’t tell me 24 isn’t real, the traffic in LA is JUST LIKE THAT!)I admit it--I've been a Survivor addict since episode one, season one. I can never get enough of Jeff Probst and his snarkiness. I also watch The Amazing Race, which is the one reality show I could see myself going on, if only to travel around the world on someone's dime. That would be a lot of fun, I think. Of course, the gagging down some horrible form of food each season might not be too hot, but then again I did survive five years of eating in the UT cafeteria system so I should be good to go! And I have to admit, that football can be the ultimate reality show....
Alrighty then, those are my answers. Now, it's my turn to keep the game going. So, what I'm looking for here is five victims volunteers. All you have to do is leave a note in my comments saying "Interview me" and I will post five hard-hitting, in-depth questions for you to answer in your own blog and then you can find five-people to interview. I know that I have to have at least five people who come and read this site occasionally...so please sign up!
