If you weren’t sentient in the ’80s, you missed some interesting fashion. You also missed the moment when wealthy musicians from the U.S. and U.K. first started tormenting innocent African people with insipid charity songs. It’s bad enough to be starving. It’s worse to be starving while some craptastic song generates large amounts of money that will never help anyone because the corrupt government that caused the famine in the first place is diverting all the donations to drugs, guns and Swiss bank accounts.
The question is which is the more awful charity song: We Are the World (U.S.) or Do They Know It’s Christmas (U.K.)? Don’t answer that! It was a trick question. Obviously Do They Know It’s Christmas is worse thanks to Bono bellowing, “Tonight thank God it’s them instead of you!” Though I’m kind of feeling him right now because when I consider the many things that I regret, I am happy that at least I didn’t sing that line in a charity song. So tonight thank God it’s Bono instead of me!
For ’80s old-timers like myself, the video is the hotness. I love seeing the Durans, Sting and George Michael looking so purty!
The whole reason I brought this up is that I was singing “We are the world” to myself after being tagged by This Lady of Kuwait and Diana Bobar of Romania. I keep trying to retire from the tag business, but how can I resist such wonderful wimmins who have tagged me from so very far away? Especially since This Lady has come up a shockingly long list of questions that no sane person would ever want to answer! So I will answer This Lady today, and I will answer Diana tomorrow, and I will beat the ass of any bitch who tries to hit me with a 100-item tag.
Do your closest friends have any nicknames for you? None they’ve ever been stupid enough to share with me.
What would your ex-(boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse) say about you in one sentence? This isn’t a hypothetical for me. In real life, an ex said to my now-husband, “She’s delightful.” Ah, the polite lie. You can never go wrong with one of those.
What is the greatest achievement of your life so far? Well, I found an eyeliner that I really like. What?! Don’t judge. It took a long time to find that. MAC Fluidline.
How should people think of sex in this, the 21st century? When I think of sex, I think of Paris Hilton in nightvision. Doesn’t everyone?
Where would you live if anywhere was possible? New York City is the capital of the world, baby, and I’m already here.
Is there a religion that’s fulfilling for you and/or the masses? No.
If you had to choose between them, would you live in Hollywood, Washington D.C. or New York, and why? I think I’ve made that clear! But maybe someday I’ll get some fake boobs and lips and move out west.
When or where do you feel the most free? You know, I’ve been trying to think of my “happy place” recently, and I’m not sure where it is. Any ideas are welcome.
Now I get to inflict this on other peeps. As usual, if I tag you, you don’t have to do it, but I like to take the opportunity to promote other blogs. To continue the We Are the World theme, I am tagging Andrea of Martirio’s Way (Chile) and Only Shallow (Finland). I’m too exhausted by This Lady’s assignment to pick any more.
