Mindless blather

Mindless Saturday meme I got from Maria. Be prepared to be bored to absolute death:

What is your favorite quotable line from a movie?
I don’t have one. Instead, I like to quote anything from my favorite movies: Happy Gilmore, Spaceballs, and Airplane!

Who is the most famous person you’ve talked to?
I’m famous on the innernets, doesn’t that count? No? Well, let’s see. I almost hit Queen Latifah, but didn’t talk to her, unless you consider me yelling “Get the fuck out of my way, moron!” to be talking. I raced William H. Macy, but we mainly just made hand signals. I stood behind RuPaul in line at the movies and he said “Excuse me” as he walked past us with his popcorn and drink, and then I said “Excuse me” to Ethan Suplee at the same movie when he was with his mom, but we didn’t actually talk. Hmm. As far as talking, it’s probably a tie between George Clinton, Mark Hamill, or Warren Ellis.

How many bags/boxes of potato chips are consumed at your house per month?
In the 10 years since I graduated from college, I don’t think we’ve ever had a single bag of potato chips at any of the places we lived. I’m just not a chip fan.

What foreign food dish do you prepare from scratch and serve?
An old Ancient Greek dish called Hamburgers and Hot Dogs.

What is your favorite section of the supermarket?
The cookie aisle. I want to try them all! Oh, and the bakery, because of the birthday cakes.

What was your high school team’s mascot and what were the school colors?
We were the Hawks and we had orange and black. Even on the swim team, our speedos were orange and black.

Everyone dead yet?

    Those 3 movies are pure gold! I met a few people while living in Memphis, (Billy Bob Thornton, Priscilla Presley, Justin Timberlake…), but no one of consequence comes to mind except for Issac Hayes. Smoothest man I ever met. As for colors…was it Halloween everyday at your school??

    No chips?!? Sacrilege!!!

    As far as the most famous person I ever had a conversation with, he is only famous in certain circles…Neil Gaiman. It was about a year into his Sandman run and I was at the NY Comic-con back when it was held at the Penn Hotel. I wasn’t much of an autograph guy, but I brought with me a copy of Sandman #1 just in case. The place was mobbed, especially the room that writers and artists sat in. I happened to notice a guy sitting by himself at a table looking really bored. I wandered over and it was Neil Gaiman! Had the chance to really talk with him for about 5 minutes before a crowd started to gather. He actually thanked me for coming over because he thought no one was going to talk with him all day. Very interesting guy, that day at least.

    Oh, and I accidently knocked Slash (from Guns and Roses) off his feet on a plane once, but that’s another story.

    This is actually Poppy but I’m a nice girlfriend and inflating Dawg’s comment count… aka too lazy to change the fields.

    I second Grant’s proposal and will be leaving bags of chips in obscure-but-high places so Jigsaw doesn’t make herself sick on them. 😛

    I think it would be almost impossible to determine my absolute favorite movie quote of all time.

    The most famous person I’ve ever talked to is … uh … probably Bill Clinton. He’s pretty famous, right?

    I don’t remember the other questions.

    Oh except for chips. I think I’ll have some Doritos right now.
