play list: june 2018
Time for the third installment of play list! (I did not expect to be so impressed by everyone’s well-thought-out answers to the time machine question.) Enjoy!
You’ve been given access to a time machine. Where and when would you travel to?
I would travel back to see the beginning of our species, and then travel forward to see it end, so that I would gain a sense of perspective on my life and not get so upset when my Wi-Fi goes down.
If I can only travel to the past and I had an unlimited supply of hygiene products and antibiotics, about early 1800s in America would be fine with me as long as I could be a part of the various expeditions that explored North America.
If I can travel into the future, about 500 years would be good. I assume by then space travel is common and exploring our universe is a possible endeavor.
I should say something like go back in time to see a cool event in history, but realistically I'd probably just go forward in time and get some winning lottery numbers!
I’ll stay here in Norman, 100 years into the future so I can see both technological progress (space travel, right?) and how my hometown has progressed. And I’m certain our office building will still be standing because it’s a fortress.
If you had your own late night talk show, who would you invite as your first guest?
The ghost of Jim Henson.
I would invite my dog and ask him pressing and hard-hitting questions such as, "Who's a good boy?"
Ellen DeGeneres. I’m having a hard time thinking of anyone more universally likable, and her career arc has been so unexpected.
I'd have to have to bring on Jeff Bridges… "The Dude". He's one of my favorite actors and seems like such a chill dude. It would be awesome to chat with him.
What is your most-used emoji?
👤 or 😱, would prefer if there was an emoji that combined these two.
🤦♀️, “Face palm lady” might as well be my middle name.
Tie between 👍 and 🍻.
What's your go-to karaoke song?
“Killer Queen” or “Flashdance… What a Feeling,” but it’s probably time for me to bring something new to the table. Suggestions welcome.
“Rawhide,” in the key of A.
I don't do a ton of karaoke. However, back in the day I did play my share of Rock Band. Back then, I was known for playing guitar while singing “Roxanne” by The Police.
I set myself up for failure by singing Beyoncé songs, but I always have a singing buddy so at least we go down together. Once in the middle of “Best Thing I Never Had,” our mics were turned way down…
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I am an anti-morning person.
I'm a morning person! But to be honest I could probably sleep all day and night if I had the chance.
Most definitely a morning person. But when I do stay up late, I HATE THAT NIGHT GUY!
Night owl for sure. I have a deal with my wife. I won't play video games while she is awake. She normally goes to bed pretty early, so that is my chance to get a few games in before bed.
