If you were a millionaire, how do you suppose your feelings on homelessness would change? I don’t suppose they would change significantly. If i were a millionaire, i would pay off my debts, save a good hunk and give the rest to the world. It would all get recycled somehow. Money isn’t really real anyway. Homelessness may be related to money but it is more of a result of social stratification. Brain aneurysm. We’re all done for. Let’s drink.

When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? Everything and anything. Or an actor. Whichever came first.

Do you like roller coasters? hella yes.

If you found $20 in your coat pocket, what would you buy with it? Beer. Delicious snobby beer. Immediately.

When is the last time you used a telephone book? I know not of this witchcraft.

What was your first car? Her name is Fluffy. She was born a poor black child. She can fly, but only when no one is looking.

What needs to be invented that hasn’t been invented yet? kitten mittens

What is your biggest fear? Besides falling to my death, the ghost of Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

Years ago when I lived in Clifton my roommate and I frequented HBC-Frankfort quite often. One time a barista who waited on us quite frequently took our order. She asked for my name, but said she remembered my roommate’s. We sat down and waited for our drinks. I got mine and sat back down. The barista then called out, “Pam, your drink is ready.” When no one claimed it, she repeated it. Again, no one claimed the drink. The barista then looked at my roommate and said, “Pam, you’re drink is ready!” Now, my roommate’s name is nowhere close to sounding like Pam. So, I have no idea where the name Pam came from. We all had a good laugh about it! Now, the HBC-Douglass Loop is my HBC home base. Being only two blocks away from you guys is quite dangerous in the best sense of the word. Love you guys! You’re awesome!
