I should start by mentioning that Interlocutor
has lent their considerable compositional prowess and gracious style to the internet... in blog form. A compelling argument against the internet is that it allows any idiot and their remedial grasp of Latin to post their musings. Surely Interlocutor
is an arguement in favor of the opposite viewpoint. They were nice enough to tag my humble blog with a survey.1. If money were no object, what would you be doing with your life?
Campaigning. But not as a candidate.2. Money is just that - an object, so why aren’t you doing it?
Because dreams and goodwill make babies bounce and butterflies beautiful, but neither are what make the world go ‘round.3. What’s better: horses or cows?
Cows. They provide us with meat, milk, clothing and an unparalleled ability to eat grass. Horses no longer have any real purpose and hold the choice distinction of “Most Useless Common Domesticated Animal”. At least dogs can sniff out drugs. And you can teach a cat to use a toilet.4. What do you think the secret to happiness is?
Doing for a living what you would secretly do for free, looking back and knowing you made the right choices, knowing that you live on your terms and that any of your success belongs to your own efforts.5.

A doctor. But honestly, as a kid, I didn’t think that I would have to grow up.7. Complete this statement: Love is . . .
something that “you follow when it beckons.”8. Can you tell a good story? (write one!)
Charlie Chaplin, as a man with a sense of humor about his own celebrity, entered a Charlie Chaplin Impersonation Contest at the height of his fame. He came third. The lesson: No one is entitled to anything.9. Can you remember your last daydream? What was it about?
What the music video for “Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space (Original Elvis Mix)” by Spiritualized would look like.10. If you were to thank someone today, who would you thank?
All the people helping me tomorrow.
I kick the ball to Jan
