30 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 16

A bit of housecleaning before today’s post…

I don’t know about anyone else but this has been a real challenge. It is great to see more than half of the month gone already. I’ve enjoyed getting to know everyone better and just getting to know those I did not know before the challenge.

If you took part in last December’s meme and want to take part in the two this year, I need your two questions for the meme. If you have already submitted them, thank you. I will be posting the questions for the July meme sometime in May. It gives you two full months to complete you answers.

If you did not participate in last year’s meme we would love for you to join. To see what all the hubbub is about visit last year’s answers here or last year’s explanation here. Submit your two questions via my contact page and not in the comment section. I need at least twenty bloggers from December’s meme to contribute questions or I will be forced to come up with my own. Insert evil, blood curdling laugh… now.

Oh, and there will be a little twist to the dares. I will reveal all on April 24th. Stay tuned.


I’ve just been granted the power of resurrection but I can only use it to bring back one dead celebrity. I would bring back ________ because…

Wait, can I pretend to suffer from delusions of grandeur and think myself a celebrity and when I die, bring myself back?

This question sucks because I cannot think of a good answer. Well it might be good but not perfect. Here is my dilemma. I thought about Whitney Houston. If I bring her back to sing once again to the world, will she do drugs again and kill herself? If I bring Michael Jackson back will he continue being addicted to the drugs he was on? If I were to bring Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, or Elvis Presley, back would they continue doing the drugs and drinking too? Bringing someone back to life to continue along the destructive lifestyle that probably led to their downfall would just be selfish and inconsiderate on my part.

Any celebrity in torment in hell would probably want to come back but anyone in heaven would most likely kill me for bringing them back. I’m not ready to die, but like they say, “No good deed goes unpunished!”

I really hate to admit this but there are far more ‘celebrities’ I would rather remove from here than there are that I would bring back. For the record, William Powell, Claude Rains, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Teena Marie and Princess Diana were all under consideration. I am very fond of classic cinema as you can see from my choices.

So I am once again come full circle. The better question to ask me is who I would rather have to leave us. Awful I know and not at all my normal thought process. For the answer though, look on most any reality television show.  BUT, I don’t actually want anyone to die.

Since I have to choose someone and I got away with straying from the choices yesterday, I will pick Merv Griffin. He created my all time, well not all time (I really enjoyed Weakest Link too) favorite game show Jeopardy.


Merv Griffin, Talk show host and creator of both Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.

The World Celebrates Michael Jackson’s Birthday

Michael Jackson‘s 52nd birthday came and went this year without much media fanfare and as far as I knew, without too much fanfare. I was wrong. There were a plethora of worldwide celebrations even in Michael’s home town of Gary, Indiana.

It would not be a stretch to say that Michael might be the only popular singer/songwriter in history to have billions of fans. His death will not stop his fans from remembering his birthday and choosing to celebrate it despite his death. There were parties held in Spain, Australia, Russia and the United States.

In California over twelve hundred dancers tried to break the record for the number of dancers performing Thriller at the same time. Guinness Book of World Records was on hand but they did not break the world record but instead broke the record in California. Of all the parties that were held, perhaps the best known is the one director Spike Lee threw last year in Brooklyn. Spike did it again this year too and like last year the entire event was free of charge. Over 50,000 people packed Prospect Park and Snoop Dogg showed up and did an rendition of Michael’s Butterflies.

For more information on the hugely successful birthday party in Brooklyn and to see some amazing photos of the event, stop by Anna’s blog, Door Sixteen and read her wonderful post. In addition you can read the thank you note Spike Lee wrote to all attendees.

Do you have a favorite Michael Jackson song? If so, would you be so kind as to leave it in the comment section. Thanks.

I tried to figure out my favorite Michael Jackson song a long time ago and it seems that often it changes. It might be my mood or just a memory. At this very moment, my favorite song to dance to is The Way You Make Me Feel and my favorite to just listen to is Stranger In Moscow. Lastly, my favorite song to sing along to is Break of Dawn. Hee heee.

Amazing Themed Sneakers

I was surfing the other day. Actually April was surfing and she came across a gallery of sneakers that were custom made. She called me to see them and below you will find my favorites. With the cost of sneakers today, I’m pretty sure only the rich can afford these and they probably aren’t being worn.
