The Saturday Ten?

1. What’s your favorite kind of cookie?

Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookies, preferably still warm from the oven.

2. Who is America’s most overrated actor?

Parker Posey. I just don't get the whole "indie movie" thing, and while I have no personal beef with Ms. Posey, I don't understand her appeal to the culture club.

3. Name a guilty pleasure.

Cheesy Glenn Larson TV shows on DVD. I already own Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (the entire series for each were boxed sets), and when the Hardy Days/Nancy Drew Mysteries are released in March, I will buy them as well. (I have almost 70 box sets of TV shows, dating from 1966 (Star Trek) to last year (Season Four of CSI.

4. “Scrubs” or “Everybody Loves Raymond”?

Neither. I believe I have seen two episodes of each. I stopped watching TV in 1994 (when I transferred to Japan for two years), and didn't start watching again until 2003, when my roommate got me hooked on TLC. I find myself watching less TV again, since Trading Spaces has jumped the shark this past year.

5. Name two things you can’t live without.

Coca-Cola (or C2) and an internet connection.

6. Your first pet’s name + your mother’s maiden name = your porn star name.

No. My first two pets were both females, with ultra-feminine names, so we'll not go there.

7. What song are you listening to right now?

Fantasy by Earth, Wind, and Fire. Oops, just changed to Annie's Song by John Denver. My Itunes playlist is a bit schizophrenic; of the 45 songs I've bought and downloaded, I have Pat Metheny, Concrete Blonde, Petula Clark, They Might Be Giants, and Dolly Parton, among others.

8. Name your celebrity crush.

<goofy grin>My first crush was on Daphne, from Scooby-Doo. I was a little kid in the seventies...

9. Favorite punchline from a joke.

Only one, but the light bulb has to WANT to change.

10. Who do you want to pass this meme off to?

I can think of several bloggers, none of whom are likely to do so.

(Got this from Andrea Harris, who sounds just about as ennui-ridden as I feel right now.)
