Good Question!
The last time I embarrassed myself was when I was discussing a job that I had to do for a female client. She was an old, tough bird, and not too feminine. After we discussed what she wanted- I said I'll do the job, "Yes SIR" I said! I felt so stupid calling her a sir! After that, she hasn't even given me the time of day, let alone stating if I did what she wanted.
Do you plan on taking any classes this year to furthur your developement, or are you just gonna relax and watch tv?
This is an intriguing question, skybobbie! Your choices of activity got me: taking classes, or relaxing and watching TV. I'll go for (c) "none of the above". Further study would be good, but it's difficult to find the time while working full-time. But as for the alternative: I rarely watch TV, and it seems I rarely relax, I seem to always have to be doing something! I guess the nearest to relaxing is here in front of the computer, from time to time. So to answer your question, I'll spend my spare time continuing to do what I do: talking to friends, exercising, gardening and being a father/husband.

If they made a movie about your life, who would you want to play the lead role?

That's a good question David! For me I'd HAVE to go with Sean Connery! I've had a lot of crazy things happen to me so far in my life, and he (as James Bond) seems to be the guy that people use in those detective type movies. I've been in some ( I think) interesting situations. The bad thing though, is his love life is 20x more interesting than mine!
Have you had the swine flu yet?, and how many people do you know that have had it?(It just seems more rare around here than all of what I have heard)

I love being alone, mostly for the peace and quiet of it all. I would have to say, riding my bike. Although there are people around, I'm alone with my thoughts. I never ride with other people.

And I never had swine flu, nor known someone who definitely had it. There was a guy at work who thought he had it, only from being very ill. It was not confirmed with tests. I heard the other day that Australia stockpiled 21 million doses of the vaccine! That's enough for just about all of us, and now the government is trying to sell it off.

What's the most pointless purchase you ever made?(Genevieve we already know about your red petticoat!)

There is a rhyme to my reason, and the red crinoline will come to good use. Pointless purchases? Well I must admit that I do from time to time get deals on ebay, unfortunately I have also made impulse purchases mainly involving clothing. Often it is pointless as you can not try the clothing or shoes on, so you can get them and they do not fit and end up getting binned to charity or to a consignment store. So though clothing and shoes may not be pointless, buying things you can not try on is. I also bought my 5 year old niece a piggy bank that says "I am saving up for therapy". pointless but fun.

If you could "be a kid again", what age would you go back to and why?

Way back. I lived with my father's mother until I was in my second or third year of school and then moved in with my dad and his wife. There was a certain innocence about that time that I think I lost a couple years later when she died. I think that's when I learned that life isn't fair.

What would you do if a co-worker showed you a sexual photo of a child?
(PS: There seems to be so much drama in my life lately! I'm meeting with a detective tomorrow over just such a fiasco.)

No problem with answering this - report them to the police. As someone who has spent a fair proportion of his adult life working with children in one form or another, I cannot abide anything that has even the whiff of paediophilia. I have witnessed first hand the impact and destruction it can have on young lives. Having raised a stepdaughter, had any adult been inappropropriate in behaviour towards her, I would not have answered for my reaction. Fortunately, it never happened.

On a lighter note, and a subject on which I'm hardly an expert, who do you think is going to win the Superbowl this year?

Hmm, this is a tough one this year. There have been some surprising upsets. Nobody would have expected the Ravens and the Jets to still be in the running, but it appears now that even they have a chance of going all the way. OK, for the NFC, I think that the Super Bowl finalist will be the winner of the Vikings/Cowboys game, and I would have to pick the Vikings.

In the AFC, I think that it will be either the Colts or the Chargers, and I really have a hard time deciding between these two. I'll just go with a gut feeling that it will be the Chargers. So that means that it would be the Chargers vs. the Vikings in the Super Bowl. This could be a great game, with two well-balanced offenses and good defenses. The Chargers have been unbeatable in their last dozen games, so I'll pick them to be the NFL champs.

Since we are on sports here, but I think that probably the majority of Genevieve posters are not sports fans, I will mix a couple topics together here. There are a number of good movies with a sports theme that would appeal to people who are not really into sports. So the question is what is your favorite movie that has a sports theme?

There have been a few in recent years, Invictus stands out recently, but i would not say it is my favorite. As a child I loved watching Ice Castles, it is an old movie that my sister watched and i loved the sad romance of the blind figure skater. If I wanted to appear romantic and what not I would leave it at that. But this would be a fib, my favorite sports movie. BRING IT ON!

If you could be on a reality tv show, which would you go on?

I agree. Did you happen to see the later replay that showed that the guy who sacked Rodgers and caused the fumble also had hold of his face mask? Should have been a penalty, with the Packers keeping the ball and that winning TD not counting. We wuz robbed!

You can see how great I am at picking winners. The one favorite who has lost so far is the team I picked to win the Super Bowl--the Chargers.

To be honest Gen, I don't watch them much at all. I realized early on one needs to watch from week to week to gain an understanding of the dynamics and sub-plots. I have watched some with people that do follow them, and that was enjoyable as they relish the opportunity to explain what's going on and then I enjoy the show that much more.
But if there is one reality show that I would go on, it would be......The Surreal Life! haha
I think it's off the air now, but had some zany moments, Gary Coleman was unbelievable in one episode. From midgets, to porn stars, one time tv personalities from the past, etc., it was the perfect 'turn my brain off' show. It also had some interesting personalities intertwined, the one I remember was Ron Jeremy and Tammy Faye Baker being on one season together.
If you could excel at one sport, and I mean top 5 in the world, what would it be?
