Wednesday Wickedness ~ Homer Simpson

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness! Like other memes, WW asks ten questions each and every Wednesday. But the WW little “twist” is that each week a famous person is picked and the meme questions are based on ten of his/her quotes. And today the unlucky celeb is:

Homer Simpson!

1. “Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It’s what separates us from the animals … except the weasel.”
What was the last thing that you weaseled out of?
Apparently paying for my coffee this morning at the coffee shop. I got home and discovered I still had the $5.00 bill in my pocket.T his happens quite frequently since my friend owns the shop. I’ll just pay her double for my next coffee.

2. “If they think I’m going to stop at that stop sign, they’re sadly mistaken!”
What was the last thing that caught your eye that you stopped for?
Huli Huli Sauce at the super market. I used it all the time in Hawaii but had yet to find it in one of our local stores. For my last bottle I drove to Seattle. (It is a soy sauce based marinade.)

3. “You can’t keep blaming yourself. Just blame yourself once, and move on.”
When was the last time that you blamed yourself?
Are you kidding? Every five minutes or so …

4. “Here’s to alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all life’s problems.”
Does alcohol play an important role in your life?
I’d like to say no, but after 15 years married to an alcoholic, I have a lot of gut-deep reactions. If I find myself in the vicinity of a drunk, it doesn’t take me long to find someplace else to be.

5. “All right, let’s not panic. I’ll make the money by selling one of my livers. I can get by with one.”
Would you ever donate a kidney or another organ to someone?
Probably. In college, my best-friend died of renal failure and I was tested then to see if I was a match. No go. Her death was long and slow and painful. A kidney would have been a small price to pay to prevent that.

6. “Bart, you’re saying butt-kisser like it’s a bad thing!
Have you ever thought you were a butt-kisser?
Nope. I bite.

7. “Everyone knows rock n’ roll attained perfection in 1974; It’s a scientific fact.
What do you consider rock ‘n roll perfection?
Hello?!  1974

8.“Hey, he’s not happy at all! He lied to us through song! I HATE when people do that!
How seriously do you take an artist’s lyrics?
Why would I take song lyrics seriously when I generally don’t even take myself seriously?

9. “If something’s hard to do, then it’s not worth doing.
What was the last thing that you did despite the fact that it was hard?
Got out of bed.

10. “The Internet? Is that thing still around?
Can you imagine being in a time without the internet?
Hello?  You mean like most of my life?  I am considerably older than than the internet.

  1. Moocher! How does a restaurant check wind up in your pockert? lol That huli huli sauce sounds intriguing. I wonder if they have it round here in a gourmet shop. Do you marinate chicken with it? Gosh, that was sad about your college friend. : ( Anyhoo…happy new year Quilly!

    • Kathy — I wasn’t given a restaurant check! Most mornings Mona just brings me my coffee, sits down with me and we chat. Then, when her break is over I follow her back to the counter and pay. Yesterday the place was really crowded, she didn’t get to take her break and the change in routine was enough to make me forget to pay. No biggy. She knows where I live.

  2. I love the “I bite”…that line is worthy of Thom!

    Maybe he can airmail you some Huli Huli sauce — or on Amoeba’s next trip he can stash some (in ziplock bags) in his bag that goes underneath!

  3. Nicely done. I think Rock n’ Roll was probably never perfect. To be perfect it would have to be messy and imperfect.

  4. Oh, amen! on #9…..I should get paid for getting up at the hideous time my alarm goes off. That is sad about your friend. I’m sure it meant a lot to her that you even tried to be a donor. I’d donate to someone like that, but probably not just randomly.

    • Stacy — I don’t know that I would donate randomly, either — at least not while I am still alive. I am a registered organ donor in the event of my death.

    • Kay — on our first date (a real date, in person, not all the proceeding internet and telephone conversations) I splashed red sauce on my blouse and told Amoeba it was his fault. He wanted to know how that could possibly be his fault and I told him, if he hadn’t cooked the sauce, it never would have happened. He said, “Why do I have the feeling that I am now responsible for anything and everything that happens?” I told him that I would not hold him responsible for everything and would be more than happy to accept the responsibility for the good stuff.

  5. Never mind the Internet – my daughter can’t understand how we ever watched tv with only 7 channels, and the look on her face about no vcr’s/dvrs -“but what if you’re not home when a show is on?” made me want to smack her!

    • RiA — kids are funny. In my classroom we were discussing Tom Sawyer and my students were appalled that there was no electricity, no air conditioning, and no microwaves. They wanted to know, “How did people cook?!”

  6. I do think while we are old enough to have lived quite well without the internet, going back to that time might be m,ore difficult than we could imagine.

  7. #6: ROTFLMBO 😀
    #9 Yep, every day! Now if only my 18yo would learn to do it on his own…
    #10 My kids still don’t understand that I took a TYPING class in high school.
