*For this last section, if you would do it for less or more money, indicate how much.

    Nobody is going to pay me that kind of money to pose nude. But if someone did, I would say no. That's not enough to live on forever, and most boards of education frown on their teachers posing nude.

Nick said...

It's great that you've always got original content prepared everyday. I don't know how you manage to do it.

Brookelina said...

I thought about letting everyone on my blogroll take over so I could just sit around looking for completely inane questions for people to answer, but that's already been done.

Anita said...

Fred, huh? Would your blog then be "The babbling Fred" or would you change it to "The Philandering Fred" or "The (insert F-word here) Fred?"

Egan said...

Classic post. I love it. Hey, what is the average tip you leave? I tend to tip right around 20%. If service is pretty shitty, 15%. Just wondering.

kapgar said...

Ahhhhh!! You're a Ghostbusters girl! I love you, love you, love you!

Brookelina said...

Anita - maybe if I had been named Fred I'd have had enough sense to not put my name on my blog.

Egan - I leave at least 20% unless the service was so bad the server deserves a beating. If it's better than average I'll leave 25-30%.

Kapgar - I wondered if anyone would catch that!! Well done!

Anita said...

I used to wait tables too. Do I get a gold star?

I'm with you on the overtipping. I'm serious about it, too. If I go out with someone for the first time (friends) and they don't tip well I immediately confront them. Stay at home or eat fast food if you can't afford the tip, bastard.

Brooke is your real name? Oh you're in deep shit now. Wait till I call the board of ed and tell them about your dream.

Phain said...

I would totally shave my head and go for a full body waxing for $5k - i'm pretty good like that about silly dares.

Brookelina said...

Anita - don't even joke about that shit.

Le Chat - I'm just looking to push up the price to get my house. I wouldn't be as upset about the hair as I would the eyebrows.

Egan said...

I'm in the overtipping camp too. It's great to hear there are others out there. I know what it's like to be on the other side of the counter. Not easy work by any means.

Lo Lo Lova said...

Always nice to learn new things about you, Brooke.

Damnit, now I have to work on this. ARGH.

Egan said...

I have some crap Paula Abdul song stuck in my head. I blame the title of this post.

yournamehere said...

C'mon, give Nick a break. He's on vacation, and blogging can be so taxing.

Übermilf said...

I'm back from Wisconsin. I brought cheese.

Brookelina said...

Egan - nothing like being a tray wench to humble you for life.

Lo Lo - glad to be of service. Can't wait to see yours.

Egan - don't blame me for your crappy taste in music.

Todd - I know, it's all so very...difficult.

Ubie - well it's about time someone brought some cheese.
You're back! Yay! Do you and Todd comment together now? Is this like a permanent thing?

Nick said...

Everyone can kiss my ass.

Bill said...

I thought I commented earlier but I guess I didn't. I admire anyone who can complete a lengthy meme like this. As I probably mentioned to Sizzle, my attepting it is probably not in the cards. Requires too much attention for my pea brain. (Though I did have the fortitude to Picasso myself.)

I will say this though: I have been knocked unconscious. Several times, I think. And this, I believe, explains a great deal about me.

Flounder said...

Never trust a chef that doesn't eat veal.

...and do you use anchovies in your caesar dressing? I hat them too, but I always use them in my caesar.

Brookelina said...

Nick - shall we all start lining up alphabetically?

Bill - actually that explains a great deal. And I love your artwork.

Flounder - do you know why they call it veal? Cause nobody wants to serve "baby cow locked in a tiny pen where it can't move, has no light, and no source of iron until its slaughtered for your consumption" on their menu.
As for the dressing - anchovies are definitely a part of the recipe - and it's the only recipe I have that includes them.

Tits McGee said...

Nick's just being touchy because everyone found out about him & Lance Bass.

Tim said...

do you use anchovies in your ceaser dressing?

jiggs said...

the trick to surviving in prison is to become someone's bitch really quickly, but then kill that person after sex.

LeMorse said...

I love this. I am stealing it. Hope you don't mind.

mckay said...

okay, the Ralph story got me a little teary eyed.
