Wednesday Wickedness ~ Kurt Cobain

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:

Kurt Cobain!

1. “A friend is nothing but a known enemy.”
Have you ever had a “friend” that you discovered was really an enemy?
No, but I have had an enemy turn into a friend.

2. “Drugs are a waste of time. They destroy your memory and your self-respect and everything that goes along with with your self esteem.
What is the strongest drug (legal or otherwise) that you have taken?
Codeine — and since I am allergic to it, it was quite a trip!

3. “I had a really good childhood up until I was nine, then a classic case of divorce really affected me.
Has a divorce (yours or your parents) really impacted your life?
Yes.

4. “I really haven’t had that exciting of a life. There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life. So I pretty much like to make it up. I’d rather tell a story about somebody else.
What’s the most exciting thing that you’ve ever done?
I fell in love with an Amoeba.

5. “I was looking for something a lot heavier, yet melodic at the same time. Something different from heavy metal, a different attitude.
Is there a heavy metal band that you are a fan of, or were a fan of at that time?
I like a few songs here and there, but no, I never invested in any albums or CDs.

6. “I’d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
Do people generally like you?
I like to think so.

7. “I’m too busy acting like I’m not Naive. I’ve seen it all, I was here first.
Are you naive at all?
I would like to say no, but occasionally something catches me totally by surprise.

8. “I’ve always had a problem with the average macho man – they’ve always been a threat to me.
Does a certain type of person scare you?
Well, I am not too thrilled when I am around angry strangers.

9. “If you ever need anything please don’t hesitate to ask someone else first.
Do you mind a friend who asks for favors?
Not if that friend is willing to return favors. I just cleaned my life of someone who was always wanting this, that and the other thing, but never seemed to get my calls if I had a need.

10. “The worst crime is faking it.
Do you ever “fake it” for approval?
I suppose that depends on what you mean by “faking it“. I outgrew the “everybody’s doing it” peer pressure thing a long time ago. Generally I find if I am lost or confused it is just better to confess rather than fall further behind.

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.
