has the latest round of the interview meme on her blog. She was looking for volunteers and since we all know that the Big Orange are volunteers, I stepped up to the plate.1. If you could bring back any old television show (with all new episodes!), what would it be?
If you'd asked me this before they brought back Doctor Who
, that would have been my answer. (It is my favorite show of all time). I'm torn here between bringing back classic Star Trek
though with the caveat that it be under the producership of Gene Coon and bringing back Seinfeld.2. Do you believe in ghosts? Why or why not?
I belive in the Holy Ghost, but I don't believe in the supernatural type of ghosts. I just believe we go to a better place after we die and don't hang around here.3. What is your favorite movie and why?
4. If you could transform into a superhero, who would you be?Spider-Man.
This is one of those answers that changes depending on which one of two I've seen more recently. It's either The Searchers
or Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
. Both are just great movies that always entertain me and I always find something new each time I view them. Also, both have lead actors who a lot of critics dismiss but who turn in great peformances in the movies, proving they can act. (John Wayne and William Shatner)
It would be awesome to swing around on a web line, stick to walls and that spider-sense to warn you of danger would be awesome.5. What is your most memorable birthday?
I am fortunate to have had many memorable birthdays--and except for one, all the memories are good. But one I recall as a personal favorite was my first b'day at UT. Sunday afternoons we had Sunday lunch at the Wesley Foundation. My parents surprised me by sending some money to Barry and Laura to purchase a cake and surprise me. I had no idea. Plus, Laura made sure to get a Redskins
cake because I was (and am) a huge Redskins fan. This was the last time they were in the Super Bowl.
Thanks to Tish for the great questions. I enjoyed taking part. If anyone out there wants me to interview you, just drop a note in the comments field and I'll come up with five questions.
