Friday's Feast

Appetizer: What sound, other than normal ringing, would you like your telephone to make?
Any sound, no matter how melodious, is going to become an annoyance. I would like my phone to feature James Earl Jones whispering "Use the Phone, Tuna" in my ear. I would like everybody else's phone to play a brief selection from the wonderful piece, 4' 33" (that's "Four Minutes, Thirty-Three Seconds" not "Four Feet, Thirty-Three Inches") by 20th century composer John Cage.

Soup: Describe your usual disposition in meteorological terms (partly cloudy, sunny, stormy, etc.)
Always 67 degrees with a 40 percent chance of rain. Always.

Salad: What specific subject do you feel you know better than any other subjects/
Advanced Smartass and Bullshit.
OK, Music (and yes that's a REAL subject). Really, anything but geometry.

Main Course: Imagine you were able to remember everything you read for one entire day. Which books/magazines/newspapers would you choose to read?
I would read "How to remember everything you read for TWO entire days" because not to brag or anything, but I'm already pretty skilled with a 24-hour retention.

Dessert: If a popular candy maker contacted you to create their next confection, what would it be like and what would you name it?
Mince Pie Bar. And then I wouldn't eat it.

If Advanced Smartass and Bullshit were graded, you would likely have earned an A and some extra credit!
