Get-to-know-you-questions, vol 1

We all need ice breaker questions. Things to jump start conversations when they hit a seven minute lull, or to ask on a speed date to vet the crazies. Here's one you can use, plus when you ask it you'll have time to come up with a really clever response when they ask you, "how about you?"

(And please answer the question. Not that many people read my blog. Heck, I'll even turn off the no-anonymous-comments button for a week or so, just so readers who don't have google accounts can play. But it would be nice if you'd give me some clue to who you are so I can, in fact, get to know you.)

You're going to the Oscars and you know there is going to be a five minute tribute for some lifetime achievement. Whose tribute would you least like to sit through?

I'll go first. Hands down, Rob Schneider. Or maybe Crispin Glover. He creeps me out.

And frankly, I'm not a big fan of Charleton Heston, either.

Sean Puff Daddy P Diddy Raisin in the Sun Combs- I hate it when rappers think they can act.

Pamela Anderson

Charleton Heston won't get a LIFEtime achievement award now because he's dead and people are still trying to pry the gun from his cold dead hands.

Tom Selleck.

Liza Minelli
She creeps me out

Mariska Hargitay's. Every time I see her, I think, your mother's head got cut off in a car accident and then I feel bad. Plus, she's too damned earnest. Having said all that, I don't think I've ever seen her act.

I was going to say John Holmes but he's dead. How about...um...let me get back to you. I'm sure there is some Hollywood putz that I would loathe even a five minute recap of their career, but damn if I can think of one now.

Mel Gibson - that fundy piece of crap.

Jim Carrey....shudder....I just couldnt sit through that.


Or possibly Tom Cruise, yak.

Angelina Jolie - one more syllable about her and I'll go into orbit.

Gary Busey - strange, very, very, strange.

I like Gary Busey. He makes me feel very, very normal! Did you catch him on Celebrity Rehab? "I am not an addict, I am a participant!"

Bruce Springstein has always annoyed me and I have no idea why. I do a mean impression of him, "Hey hey now, I'm the boss, look at me, I'm the boss...."

Well, I dare say it's much better in person...

John Claude Van Dame also comes to mind. Vin Diesel, too. Total deal breakers for me...

Jerry Lewis... I guess so long as I don't make it to this year's show, I'm safe. At least until they give one to John Travolta. Blech.
