Open Salon Tag Team Match Game Catherine Forsythe & Brian B

Rate: 41 Flag
 
Brian B did two blogs recently regarding Cindy Capitani's Open Call for more OS interviews. Sadly, I cannot do a normal one. Normal has never been in my genes.
 
So I emailed both Catherine and Brian to see if they wanted to do a "tag team"  interview. They will have to answer 15 of the most idiotic questions I could find, and then the tag team partner gets to comment on the other's answers.
 
Now how fun is that? 
 
The best part is that each person has no idea what the other person's comments are until I publish it.
 
If anyone cares to do one. Just email me and tell me who you want to do it with and I will  set it all up. Or heck, just do it yourself.
 
 
 
  brian
 
 
Brian B's Answers to my nosy questions.
 
Catherine Forsythe's comments under his answers between the parentheses.
 
 
 
1.When a picture of Swiss Cheese gets taken, what do the holes say?
 
“Albert Hall” ( because they want to fill it.. It was Lennon's birthday on Saturday)

(Is it a bad sign when Brian's first answer sends me to open a Google tab?)
 


2. If it is true we are here to help others then exactly what are the others here for?

Because they took a wrong turn at Alpha Centari.

(It's a common mistake. Traffic is just terrible at Alpha Centari, especially in the light year 2395.)
 

3.What was the best thing before sliced bread?
 
Charlie Chaplin. Some say Harold Lloyd, but they are just plain wrong.

(Seems that Brian is a man of a few words (or none).)
 
 

4. In your place of employ are there aliens working there?
 
Definitely. They grow eggs in pods the mechanical room and gradually replace the regular people as they are promoted to management...

(That wrong turn at Alpha Centari has consequences.)
 


5. If you were an animal, what kind would you be and why?

Everybody knows that sunflowers aren't animals!

(It is good that Brian is has sorted out that plants-animals confusion. We just wish he would stop talking to that geranium plant. )
 
 

6.If you were a Star Trek character, which one would you be and why?
 
Were there even sunflowers on those shows?

(It is good that I have Google opened in a separate tab. However, there are some things that even Google cannot answer. I must make a note to discuss this with Marissa Mayer.)
 
 

7. What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
 
Darkness. Unless you open it. Unless the light really stays on at all times. That might explain the electricity bills.

(Perhaps it is true that the dark side of the force lives in Brian's refrigerator.)
 
 

8.If Hollywood made a movie out of your life who would you like to see play your character?
 
Angelina Jolie, just to see if she could.

(Brian's dresses would look nice on Angelina.)
 
 

9. If you were a type of food, what type would you be?

Sunflower seeds obviously, but I couldn't eat them, that would be cannibalism.

(It is probably a good guess that Brian does not cook with sunflower oil. The reasons are humanitarian, on a plant level.)
 
 

10.What is the most important part of the sandwich?

The pickle that comes with it.

(Brian might say that his favourite tune is "Turn the Beet Around". No, I don't have the heart to tell him that it is not an ode to a vegetable.)
 
 

11. Would you tattoo someone's name on your arm?
 
Sunflowers don't have arms.

(Did you know that the most popular book among sunflowers is "Roots"? I bet Brian knows that.)
 
 

12. When do you feel ugly?

Who says I'm ugly? I wanna know... I'll teach them...

(please see answer to question 8 - and let's not make comments on the dresses. It is individual preference.)
 
 

13. You can put three things in a suitcase; what would those three things be?
 
The lamp containing the genie; the hat containing the rabbit; and a handkerchief.

(This is where you insert the background music by Anne Wilson and Nancy Wilson. It's always nice to have Heart provide the "Magic Man" background music for Brian.)



14. Tell me something you would find hard to do, but you would do it for a million dollars.
 
Nothing is hard if I can do it, and even a million dollars can't make it possible to do that which I can't

(I think Brian is channelling Yoda here. What he meant was "do or do not - there is no try".  )
 


15. If you were written about in the newspaper, what would the heading say?
 
Celtics fan disappointed again

(Brian is back to talking about the dark side of the Force again. One has to sympathize with a man who has to watch Shaquille O'Neal attempting foul shots. [Please see answer to question 5 - re: geranium plant])

Catherine Forsythe's answers to my nosy questions. Brian B's comments under her answers between the parentheses.
 
 
 
1.When a picture of Swiss Cheese gets taken, what do the holes say?

"Hello Stephen Hawking"

(Hawking is a photographer? That IS amazing!)
 
 
 
2. If it is true we are here to help others then exactly what are the others
here for?

To referee.
 
(but if we all were so helpful, we wouldn't need referees)
 
 
 
3.What was the best thing before sliced bread?

sesame seed buns
 
(whole wheat organic of course)
 
 
 
4. In your place of employ are there aliens working there?

Of course, there are many space cadets here.
 
(and a few Cylons?)
 
 
 
5. If you were an animal, what kind would you be and why?

dog - I would like to know what it feels like to jump high and catch a tennis
ball with just your mouth. And what does that pepperoni pizza really smell like?
 
(you mean you don't do those things already? I thought you did everything)
 
 
 
 
6.If you were a Star Trek character, which one would you be and why?

Jadzia Dax - Who wouldn't like to command the USS Defiant?
 
(and because Worf was such a hottie hubby?)
 
 
 
7. What would I find in your refrigerator right now?

Fifteen (15) pumpkin pies...  I went to the Farmers' Market over the weekend and then baked. It was a big pumpkin.

(is there anything you don't do? where DO you find the time?)
 
 
 
 
8.If Hollywood made a movie out of your life who would you like to see play your character?

Wilma Flintstone or Kate Winslet...  but I wouldn't count out Betty Rubble.
 
(doesn't Kate Winslett die tragically in every movie she's in though?)
 
 
 
 
9. If you were a type of food, what type would you be?

organic ... like a cashew. Irresistible but good for your health; and high in
antioxidants and dietary fiber.

(aren't cashews high in cholestrol?)
 
 
 
10.What is the most important part of the sandwich?

the sesame seed bun [please see question 3]

(don't the seeds get caught in your teeth?)
 
 
 
11. Would you tattoo someone's name on your arm?

no
 
 
(where WOULD  you tattoo it then?)
 
 
 
12. When do you feel ugly?

- when I blurt out something that hurts someone's feelings.
 
(people have feelings?)


13. You can put three things in a suitcase; what would those three things be?

laptop with power cord and international electrical adapter

medical kit

toothbrush and Marvis mint toothpaste

 
( that's more than three things...trust you to bend the rules)
 
 
 
14. Tell me something you would find hard to do, but you would do it for a million dollars.

have an arm tattoo [ please see question 11 ]
 
(so, whose name would it be?)
 
 
15. If you were written about in the newspaper, what would the heading say?

"Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson Defeated By Catherine Forsythe in Augusta Masters Playoff"

or 
 

   "Catherine Forsythe Wins Huge Wager in Vegas and Buys Oracle Corporation from Larry Ellison"
 
(competitive much??? or "Catherine Forsythe Makes Clean sweep of the year's Nobel Prizes")
 
 
Thank you Catherine and Brian B.

Today's snack is...let's gather around.. Pumpkin Pie for Canadian Thanksgiving Day this past weekend.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE !!

Rated for so much fun !!
Inspired lunacy. This is a great take on Cindy's open call.
Okay, I admit to confusion. I will reread after breakfast :)
Jonathan...I am waiting for the two of them to read it..:) But it is a holiday in Canada and I suppose Catherine is delivering all those pumpkin pies..:)

Boanerges.. Happy Thanksgiving and yeah I thought it would be fun.. and these two are deep in my heart..:) of lunacy .Well maybe Catherine and Brian are a tad more stable than "moi":)
Bluestocking... yup it is a careful read..:)
What a fun concept!!! And both Brian B and Catherine get rounds of applause for wit and participation . . .
Pretty funny stuff. Like the pie....R
dang! CF outfunned me again!
love the cranberries on the pie though...
Owl, what great sports they were.. I was thrilled
Sheila.. the pie.. the pie..
Brian.. you have to watch that CF... She should have been the lead with Matthew Broderick in the film War Games.. the pie is for you..:)
This was a lot of fun. Poor Sunflower, if it can type, it must have arms, or at least fingers.
rated with amusement.
Catherine has pies?? Will she mail us one?
Poetess... Brian's version of a sunflower certainly has arms..
Catherine will nod in agreement to this.:)

kateeasley... find someone and email me.. Id love to do one with you and someone else.
Linda, thanks for being the instigator, I mean, MC. Great fun.
sixtycandles.. me an instigator???
NOoooooooooo say it ain't so..:)
OUTSTANDING!!

Until you got to the pie. How come you cut the pie 'Merikan style? You been in 'Merika too long?

A pie should be cut in four pieces. Except when it is cut in three or two....Yum, yum. (Pumpkin pie is my favouritest kind of pie ever!)♨

Best Thanksgiving Day Dinner: One smoked turkey leg and one pumpkin pie topped with 1-pint whipped cream..... (~*burp*~)

Sorry you ran out of whipped cream - oh well one bite is better than no bites.


Comment: If I were a Star Trek character I'd want to be Seven of Nine's tailor..........(Yeah, it's a small role but it has its compensations.....)

[Measure, measure, measure, measure (*check out the tightie-whities*) measure, measure, measure - whooooo - hooooo!!]

HAPPY THANKSGIVING ! Right back at ya......!


^R^++ ♪
So late to this party...but so much fun! Perhaps I am the last to throw celebratory confetti in the air...hope so!!! xoR
Pixie.. I agree about the pie.. Four pieces only.:0
Muse.. the party has just begun..:)

Betamale.. okay you are on my list..:)
Hmmmm. Ummmm. Uhhhhh. Well, I guess I just haven't smoked enough pot in my life to get all of this. It's okay. I spend a lot of time in the dark!

Lezlie
Gheeeze Linda, you're a force to be reckoned with! It's hard to keep uo with you. This was super, after the third reading to make sense of it. (I'm slow, bite me). Is CF Canadian? Happy Thanksgiving to my Canajan friends. Rated with love and hugs.
lezlie.. I thought this might be a tad slow read hahaha

Fusun.. yes, it takes time, but these guys did such a good job..
Brian B.. a Canadian.. and Catherine a transplanted one.
Happy Thanksgiving.. this is why I hosted two Canadians today..:)
What fun! Thanks for thinking (?) of this. :)
Ann.. I am going to do it next week.. but am going to shelve the other person's responses as people are finding they need drugs to figure it out hahaha
Like I mentioned.. we have Cindy Capitani's Open Call to thank my deranged mind for doing this..:)
They're both so funny!
Eve, that they are.. they are two of the funniest people I have ever known.
I agree with Jonathan. Sheer fun.
Fun! Nice to know I'm gonna' love whatever you write about, Linda...or even what your unpaid ghostwriters have to say : )
@Brian: Sunflowers have arms, they're the ones holding up the leaves, there on that stalk of yours...
Hee Hee, "stalk of yours" sorry, caught that after I clicked...just in case anyone else's mind hangs out in the gutter on Monday A.M.
How much fun is that! Rated for all the good reasons.
Simonedeb.. it was fun to do for a change

Just thinking.. yes must think of some sort of payment for those two..:).. my mind is always in the gutter..

Oryoki.. fun is sitting here in your underwear at 11:23 am working on tomorrow's blog hahaha
Very clever people.
Brassawe... that they are..
Brian is a hoot!

Thanks, Linda! I know this was a load of effort for you.

I'm with Bluestocking. Let me grab an Advil and I'll be back. My head is killing me. But Happy Thanksgiving Linda! I love Canadians and you are one of their best.~r
Clever concept, Linda and the responses help generate of picture of these delightful characters. Fun read. By the way, really like the new photo!
Joan.. we are going to revise it for next week.. This was the first run.
Marsha.. my friend emailed me and asked me if I needed a brush.:)
So much fun, I kept chuckling all along! Funny, funny Linda!

I love that theme..:)
Happy Thanksgiving. I think we got a lot to be thankful for don't you, my fellow maple leaf flyers. I just learned a little more about some fellow canucks. Thanks, Linda, the Maple Leaf forever ... Mmmmm, pumpkin pie with cranberries, Yum.
great interviews -- and cool idea with the tag-team. loved it!
Fun. I made apple pie today. Still so many apples to eat.
Happy Thanksgiving my dear Scarlett
Thanks Cindy
Sheba.. are they gluten free?
Oh gawd I'm such a greek,

"6.If you were a Star Trek character, which one would you be and why?

Were there even sunflowers on those shows?"

Yeah, remember the one where the sunflower blasted everyone and turned them into love children and Spock had to bi**h slap Kirk until he got over it?
Geek, not greek. I shouldn't post and watch The Daily Show at the same time.
I don't know these two very well, sounds like a fun 2 however. I am going over to Brians to re-read ur interview!
Clever and mind-boggling. Thank the gods for Google!
How did I miss this? So much fun! You are brilliant Linda!
