1. You can press a button that will make any one person explode. Who would you blow up?
Barney. Okay, he's not a person technically. But I really, REALLY hate this freaky purple dinosaur.
2.You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out of existence. Which one will it be?
Robbie Williams. I just don't like him and his music.
3.Who would you really like to just punch in the face?
A local celebrity, Kris Aquino. Can't stand her face, can't stand her voice. Can't stand her, period.
4.What is your favorite cheese?
5.You can only have one kind of sandwich. Every sandwich ingredient known to humankind is at your immediate disposal. What kind will you make?
Tuna on whole wheat bread. With fresh tomatoes and lettuce. And lots of extra mayo. Yum yum.
6.You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie celebrity of your choice. We are talking no-strings-attached sex and it can only happen once. Who is the lucky celebrity of your choice?
I don't really want to have sex with a celebrity. But okay, for the purposes of this game I'll say Ryan Reynolds. If it doesn't go well, we can always laugh about it. I think he's a funny dude.
7.You have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your choice. Who do you pick?
Again, I don't really want...sigh. Okay, J.D. Fortune, the Canadian lead singer of the Australian band INXS. Maybe we can just play Scrabble.
8. Now that you've slept with two different people in a row, you seem to be having an excellent day because you just came across a hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy shit, a hundred bucks! How are you gonna spend it?
After I get my strength back, I'll go pig out on Italian and Japanese food. Then have strong coffee. Then buy a book. Then watch a movie. Then buy some beer to drink while I'm reading my new book.
9.You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go?
10.Upon arrival to the aforementioned location, you get off the plane and discover another hundred-dollar bill. Shit! Now that you are in the new location, what are you gonna do?
I'm going to have to ask Morgen about what I can do with $100 in Egypt. Probably ride a boat up the Nile and go ogle at the pyramids. And get some food, of course.
11.An angel appears out of Heaven and offers you a lifetime supply of the alcoholic beverage of your choice. It is...?
12.Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and
what are you going to do when you get there?
To the glory that was Greece, to the grandeur that was Rome (or is it the other way around?). To maybe converse with the great minds of those times: Homer, Virgil, Aeschylus, Euripides, Ovid. And to have some saturnalian fun as well.
13.You discover a beautiful island upon which you may build your own society. You make the rules. What is the first rule you put into place?
Oh, paradise island! Everybody helps each other out. It's a concept that we Filipinos call bayanihan. And that would include giving me tributes of Belgian chocolate and beer on my birthday. You guys gotta help me celebrate, you know.
14.You have been given the opportunity to create the half-hour TV show of your own design. What is it called and what's the premise?
Interviews with people I'd love to see emotionally naked, to find out what makes them tick. (Guests getting naked literally of their own accord is, of course, a welcome option.)
15.What is your favorite curse word?
'Tang ina! (Okay, those are two words. But one without the other wouldn't be a proper cuss word.)
16.One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren't really doing anything, they're just standing around your bed. What do you do?
Probably have a heart attack. And if I survive that, ask them if they'd be willing to do an interview about what the hell they're getting out of standing around people's beds.
17.Your house is on fire, holy shit! You have just enough time to run in there and grab ONE inanimate object. Don't worry, your loved ones and pets have already made it out safely.So what's the item?
Pictures taken before the digital camera age and which I haven't had the chance to get scanned yet. They are priceless.
18.The Angel of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. Whatcha gonna do in that half-hour?
Ahem. I plead the Fifth.
19.You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What's it gonna be?
Psychic stuff!!! Move objects with my mind, manipulate all kinds of matter (and non-matter), read other people's thoughts...no one will be safe from me! But I probably need to learn to control my own thoughts first. They can bring me to the heights of happiness or to the depths of despair. In any case, they drive me crazy.
20.You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you like to experience again?
Hmmm. There are many, but I think one of the short moments I'd like to relive once would be that first kiss. Ahh, youth.
21.You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?
Being bitten in the face by a dog when I was two years old. How's that for a first memory? Crap. Thankfully, the experience didn't scare me away from doggy woggies. Love 'em.
22.You got kicked out of the country for being a time-traveling heathen who sleeps with celebrities and has super-powers. But check out this cool shit... you can move to anywhere else in the world! Bitchin'! What country are you going to live in now?
My island! (See Question # 13) where my people do bayanihan and give me chocolate and beer. But if we're talking about a place that already exists, then it's a toss-up between Spain and Japan.
23.This question still counts, even for those of you who are under age. Check it out. You have been eternally banned from every single bar in the world except for ONE. Which one is it gonna be?
Feh. Couldn't care less. I'm not that big on bars. Oh, wait! There is one: Beers Paradise.
24.Hopefully you didn't mention this in the super-powers question.... If you did, then we'll just expand on that. Check it out... Suddenly, you have gained the ability to FLOAT!!! Whose house are you going to float to first, and be like "Dude, check it out...I can FLOAT!"?
My partner in crime, my younger brother. Although he doesn't have a house now, technically. He works on the Millennium, one of Celebrity Cruises' ships, and they're presently plying the waters of the Mediterranean, going back and forth amongst countries like Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and France. He would be so awestruck at the sight of his floating sister!
25.The constant absorption of magical moonbeams mixed with the radioactive vegetables you consumed earlier has given you the ability to resurrect the dead famous-person of your choice. So which celebrity will you bring back to life?
John Lennon. Because he was cut down in the prime of his life. Because I think he would have had so much more to give to the world. Because he's my favorite Beatle. And because I think he was cute.
26.The Celestial Gates of Beyond have opened, much to your surprise because you didn't think such a thing existed. Death appears. As it turns out, Death is actually a pretty cool entity, and happens to be in a fantastic mood. Death offers to return the friend/family-member/person, etc. of your choice to the living world. Who will you bring back?
Daddy. He would love all the techie things we all take for granted now...especially the Internet. And because we still miss him even after all these years.
27.What's your theme song?
Woman, by John Lennon
