I was tagged on this post by Yid with Lid. For folks who want to read regular, daily (except for Shabbos) posts that tend to be on the opposite end of the spectrum from mine re: the Middle East, but are well-sourced and passionate, check out Sammy’s blog. He’s won a batch of awards, deservedly so.
Rules of being Tagged
Here are some questions and answers. Read the next section for the List of Tagged Bloggers. If you’re tagged, answer the questions on your Blog. Then be sure to make a list of tagged bloggers after you provide answers. (I forgot this before, just added it.)
1) Name your favorite band and singer. (The singer can’t be from the band)
Band: Talking Heads, Pretenders, B-52s (yeah, I know – stuck in the 80s)
Singer: Chrissie Hynde
2) Favorite historical politician (domestic)? (Historical = Dead)
Historic/Domestic: Ella Grasso
3) Favorite historical politician (International)?
Historic/International: Golda Meir
4) You’re giving a Hollywood pitch (25 words or less) about your Blog — GO
Sophisticated MILF seduces with intellectual intercourse and leaves a few wanting more, always knowing it’s quality not quantity when it comes to traffic.
5) Other then where you live now, what city do you like?
6) Favorite modern politician? (In office now)
7) Are you a Wilsonian Idealist or Nixonian Realist in foreign policy?
I’m fessing up: I’d have to Google the first and give an educated guess that I’m not the second. But I’ve been told and I believe that I am in fact an Idealist, big or little I is fine.
8)Favorite obscure movie?
The Draughtsman’s Contract
9) What is your favorite restaurant?
Any outdoor cafe in a place well-suited for people watching where I can drink a glass of wine, have a cup of coffee and write.
10) Choose a music video on YouTube. Why that one?
They Might Be Giants – Istanbul Not Constantinople. Because I really love that Len of Blogesque found it and recognized that I like cute stuff like that, not to mention TMBG are from my high school years. And my oldest son still loves to watch it, Len.
List of Tagged Bloggers:
I am told to tag those I respect as bloggers:
Hmm, can’t think of anyone.
Lisa Renee (Glass City Jungle)
Ben Keeler (The Keeler Report)
Tom Blumer (Bizzy Blog)
Aaron Marshall, Mark Naymik or any of the others at Openers – so they can’t say that no one’s ever tagged them (you fellas aren’t really keeping a blog until you’ve been tagged!)
And if they don’t do it, maybe I can get The Reader’s Rep, who keeps a blog, to do it.
Not the usual suspects and possibly not folks who’ll do it – I understand. But I thought I’d try to mix it up.
