Well I am so happy you enjoyed the answers miss Zadzi!

And from the answers I see here, we've got a good group this week too. I'll drop mine off later.

Hey! Regarding Wise Shaman's very first set of questions-- I missed seeing #3.

I'm going to just nominate two contenders:
The Black Album (by the Damned)
Never Mind the Bullocks, Here Come the Sex Pistols (obviously by the Sex Pistols)

And this isn't exactly the greatest punk album of all time-- I'm not even sure it's even punk... It's not- is it? Well... maybe it's like punk nostalgia? Retro? Referencing?

But whatever-- I just like it: Arctic Monkeys: Favorite Worst Nightmare.

Because Flourescent Adolescent holds a special place in my heart.

Hey, I like the choices Luna, especially the Sex Pistols. Johnny Rotten belting out 'God Save the Queen' always makes me smile...

Actually-- and this will break your heart... I had THIS poster, signed-- because I went to the book signing:

Though, as my friend in Facebook just pointed out-- he was kind of an asshole. So if I lost his poster-- what the heck.

No way Luna, you had a signed Johny Rotten Poster! That’s seriously cool because, as you sad, the man was an A-Hole of the First Order, so to get anything signed by him is like freaking Outstanding!
Wow, so many good answers again this week. Everything from passing on the chance to save the day to stopping Bush from taking over the world. And of course, everyone has a favorite season.
So, here are my answers, and not too late I hope:

1. The Thief, and I would stop John Wilkes from killing old Abe Lincoln. Why, you ask? Because, and I have never been a fan of Mr. Lincoln’s or some of his actions, I think he had a few grand plans for the country after the Civil War and if left alone to enact those plans we probably would be in a far better place for it. Instead, due to Reconstruction and other policies, we’re far too divisive and separated to try and better ourselves or this country.

2. Delete everything, and let me tell you, that’s the best thing. I worked for an accounting firm for three years once, and in one of those years this very thing happened. The ‘Bonus Sheet (as they called it)’ got out for all the Senior Managers, and I swear, for the next two months it was nothing short of Evil, like a bunch of Prison Gangs fighting it out. Money, it will corrupt and tear down the most honorable among us, seen it firsthand.

3. Easy one, Spring. It’s that magical time when the fish start to wake up and I get to spend long mornings at the lake fishing. I get to hear the magical sound of my reel spinning loose with line, the birds chirping, and the Great Spirit willing, get to experience the fight of a bass on the end said line.

Well, there are mine. Tune in tomorrow for the next set people. Till then, keep it between the ditches.

1. I would run the Flash, because I watch flash and know what a mess altering time stream can cause. I would only travel in time if I had an experienced time traveler to guide me, like the Doctor.

2. Delete, no second thoughts about it.

3. Spring or fall, especially when it's rainy and not almost freezing. Rain is my favorite weather.

Evil Evie has the least evil choices!

Wise shaman-- your choices are interesting. I hadn't thought of repairing the country during reconstruction. But yes-- the was a pivotal moment that solidified institutionalized and classism as part our framework. We could have gone the other way. People could have unified. Good thinking!

I'm probably the most evil person here-- because my reaction to your true story was "everyone got away with looking? Cool!" Internal divisiveness? Pshaw! What a small price to pay for the satisfaction of ones curiosity!

Your description of spring is just beautiful. It makes me want to
go fishing!

Why thank you Luna, I try my best. And the lake is starting to call to me, gonna have to drive up and see what it looks like!

And to everyone, awesome job on the answers last week. I think Luna is right, Evil Evie may be the nicest evil person I have ever met, and that includes my High School years. I also love reading all the reasons behind the answers, the elaboration, because it shows more than you know about the person answering. So, without waiting, let's do this thing one more time!

1. You live in a nice rental house on the nice side of town, great parks and wonderful shops and everything. You share the rent and expense of the house with a roommate, which enables you to live comfortably within your means. The roommate is nice and friendly and you two get along beautifully. She/He works at a bank and being a young professional, keeps track of what he/she owes and pays on time without incident. And yet, all good things do hit snags, and one day you see your roommate come in with a strange bag you've never seen before. When you ask about the bag, she/he answers with a fantastical tale. You see, your roommate has been secretly embezzling from the bank she/he works at, but, instead of keeping the ill-gotten gains, your roommate has been giving the money away. She/he has been giving the stolen money to orphanages with sick kids, people who might loose their homes, and other charities. What do you do with this new found information.

A. Turn your roommate in to authorities, they broke the law and no one is above the law!
B. Look the other way, your roommate is doing good and that is what's important here
C. Tell your roommate you won't say a word...for a piece of the take.
D. Tell your roommate you'll give them a 6 hour head start, then your calling the cops.

2. One night, while sitting at home with your friend, you get a call from another friend telling you there's a happening party over at this guy's new place, a house warming party man and everyone is there! You get the invite, but when you bring up the fact you already have company and ask to bring them along, you get told no. It seems your friend has bad body odor and likes to hug everyone. So, what do you do?

A. Tell your friend at the party you can't make it, if your friend here at the house isn't welcomed then you might as well not be
B. Suddenly develop the 25 minute flu, cough a lot as you escort your friend to the door, and then when the coast is clear hit the PARTY!!!
C. Tell your friend at the house to get there stinky ass in the shower, we're going to a PARTY!!
D. Tell your friend at the party, the guy he/she is partying with worships Satan and everyone there might end up sacrificed, then hang up.

3. Have you ever gone Country Line Dancing? If so, when, where, and were you wearing a cowboy hat?

That's it, the QOD. Now let's have some fun!

That's easy.

1.) I never saw a thing. I don't know anything about it.

2.) I've been to enough parties. If my friend isn't welcome, then I don't need to be there.

3.) Yes. In (I think) Burbank-- definitely the valley. No-- I didn't have a hat. Also (I think) somewhere near New Orleans-- also didn't have a hat. Ages ago.

1. DANGER!!! Roomie is playing Robin Hood with other people's money, and needs to be locked up in nice private quarters! Pack up quietly, including anything you don't want to lose, and make plans to stay with a relative. Take ANYTHING with a computer chip in it - electronics, phone, anything with memory that could be confiscated. Go see relatives for the weekend, and call the cops from there.

Hit the post office on the way out and forward your mail. Be aware that a subpoena could include your phone and e-mail accounts. If you have a lawyer in the family, call them from Aunt LaBelle's. Pray that your next roomie is not a friggin' mental case.



2. Why did I not notice this odor? Stay home with my friend. I'd say, no thank you, we will get together some other time, and drop the subject. I don't owe anyone an excuse.

3. By the time it became popular, I was too old for it.

1st
If it's really money taken from "the 1%" of ultra-rich that only made they money by pressing it out of others (directly or indirectly):
E: Give him/her an award.

If that's not the case..., well, maybe have a talk with him/her? Preferably before a police unit arrives. Smile

2nd
Rayek broods and doesn't go to parties. Life is serious and we have to deal with the important things and no time for parties. Razz
So this problem could never arise. Wink

I'm not a party-guy either. I just can't be there and just "amuse". (Unless I find nerds to talk about important things.)
So I'm not a fan of being hugged by smelly people, but on the other hand I know well that this may have happened to everyone of us, have a hard day of work, a glitch in deodorant, whatever. I do know people who occasionally smell. I still like them. So if you exclude people just because they do smell occasionally I also don't have to be on the party.
But then, not being a party animal either.

PS: Might be helpful and professional to give the smelly one a subtle hint once in a year. It might help them in their social life.

3rd
I don't even know what "Country Line Dancing" is.
Cowboy hats might be okay, though.

1 I would pretend I never noticed, but also try to find out how the person thinks, to find out what his or her reasons are.

2 I stay home, no need for excuses towards the house warming party people, and have a smelly party for two with my friend. 10 4

3 I have not, but I do own a cowboy hat and I like country music so maybe I should try it out some day.

1. I would probably look the other way until my conscience started messing with my sleep and then I'd call my mom for advice.

2. Say no thanks and then have more fun with my friend then I probably would have at the party with all those snobs.

3. Does the boot n scoot boogie count at prom?
I've been swing dancing before and my brother brought his cowboy hat.

@Lunakat @Wiseshaman
I stole my username from my muse. If she were answering it would be quite different.

1. She'd want a cut of the take.
2. She'd probably say something similar to the Satan sacrifice stuff and then grab her friend and go play tricks on the poor people.
3. She doesn't like dancing very much and has recently developed a deep hatred for the makarina.

1. I seriously have no clue. O.O
A more elaborate answer might give away more than I'm ready to show.

2. Stay with my friend ... after a polite "No thanks. Have fun." to the other friend.
But it's a too easy decision - I'm not into paries anyway.

3. Country Line Dancing - definitely no. Smile There's hardly an occasion here - and in case I'd come across one I'll better not participate. I'm a miserable dancer and most likely would be the one to mess up the line one way or the other.
In fact I own a cowboy hat - kinda a fake cowboy head - since our great company "get-to-know" party. The party proved that I should avoid crowded and/or nosy parties at all! (points to #2).

Embezzling is bad enough, but Roomie has actually been handing the money out like cookies. Then he/she comes home with a BAG of stolen loot? And doesn't think the investigation is already underway?

Do you know what happens if the Feds find drugs or other contraband? Has Roomie even clicked on child pornography or terrorist sites on his/her personal devices? Do you want to spend the rest of your life defending your innocence?


Do you think that Roomie or the landlord/landlady will vouch for you, especially if you happen to be a minority or an immigrant?

When the feds catch up, you will be in serious trouble, if you aren't already, whether you knew about it or not. Your reputation among friends, family, employers and clients is at stake as well.

Well trollbabe, I guess for the most part I wouldn't do anything because, to be honest, at first I wouldn't know what to do. I also probably wouldn't realize the scope of trouble I could get into by doing nothing.

Banks have money, lawyers and political power. It might be different if it were a single-location liquor store or gas station.

I wouldn't involve myself at all-- but I would start quietly looking to move.

1. I'd choose D (give roommate a head start, then call cops), but only if I could trust my roommate not to kill me to keep me quiet. But embezzlement is not a victimless crime. FDIC insurance is paid for with yours and my bank fee and service charge payments.

2. I'd skip the party. I'm not a party person anyway-- and if my friend smells so bad, why haven't I noticed? They probably just don't like my friend and are making an excuse. But even if not, these people are pretty shallow.

3. I did country line dancing at a family reunion once. I didn't wear a hat.

I'd also like to do last week's.

I'd choose to talk to author Dorothy L. Sayers. Fascinating person.

I work for a very small company, and we all trust one another. I'd delete the e-mails. My bosses would probably come and tell me to delete the first one, rather than sending a second e-mail, though-- so the second e-mail would lead me to check with them that there wasn't some malware behind this.

I love Spring best.
