|09:41 am - How The Beastie Boys Saved My Relationship|
Last Tuesday, I called Maggie in a frantic panic. The conversation went just about exactly like this:
Maggie: "Hello?"And that was the end of the conversation.
MJD: "I have a life-or-death question. It's very important."
Maggie: "Um, okay."
MJD: "Do you like the Beastie Boys?"
Maggie: "Uh, yes. Yes I do."
Maggie: "Is that all?"
MJD: "Yes, yes. that's all."
Maggie: "Okay. . ."
MJD: "I suppose I should explain, huh?"
Maggie: "Well, you don't have to. But it would be nice."
MJD: "Okay, well, here's the thing. I had a roommate in college, Kevin. Kevin was a great guy, and he really, really liked the Beastie Boys. One day, he turned to me and said, "Mike, this is important. Never trust a girl who doesn't like the Beastie Boys. They're not the sort of girl you should hang out with. And never, ever date one." And, as I was driving through town, a Beastie Boys song came on, and I remembered his advice. And I suddenly had to call you."
Maggie: "I like you."
MJD: "I know."
Then I went and saw Transformers with tesinth, and life was good.

Woulda been much better without the explanation, I love throwing random questions at people, "OK, now this will decide the future of our relationship, so no pressure or anything, but who was the best character on A-Team and why (Mr. T excluded, of course) ???
Granted, that could be why I'm single...
Heh. The explanation, partially, is just bizzare enough to make the whole thing slightly more tweaked.
Kevin is also the roommate who, upon finding a pretty and lacy undergarment of Tina's hanging in my closet, left me a note on the hanger saying, "Mike, if I ever see you wearing this, I will beat you to a pulp. Have a good day! -K"
He was a good roommate.

Ohh, sorry, the answer we were looking for was Col. Hannibal, that's right, Col. Hannibal, but thanks for playing and good luck in Round 2: "Who was the best Voltron antagonist?" and now's the time to start thinking about our final question of the day, "Religion: What one is the right one anyway?" ... :)
However, Murdock could have also been accepted if a strong enough case was made.
(the ladies always pick Face...)
"Who was the best Voltron antagonist?"
Prince Lotor, of course.
"Religion: What one is the right one anyway?"
While the Cult of the Flying Spaghetti Monster gets a lot of things right, I have to go with the Faith of the Giant Carnivorous Purple Eggplant.

Dang, 2/2 (the fact that Tim Curry voiced him in the latest Voltron incanation was the deciding factor, although I have yet to see/hear this, I am sure it is great).
You still haven't given the A-team answer yet though (please disregard my previously posted "answer") :)
I agree with mzwyndi
- I vote for the original Starbuck.
I've never watched the A-Team. This little nugget actually shocked Tom; luckily we were already married when he found out, so it was TOO LATE!!! Mwahahahaha!

Dang, and I though you were cool... You probably wouldn't have even been interested in the TomTom navigation unit which is sold with Mr. T's voice on it, "Turn Left, Fool!"
I pity da' foo' who doesn't turn left!
