Friday SpiesĀ© (Sunday Edition)

1. What is the best thing about the city in which you live? What is the worst?

Lubbock: "The Giant Side of Texas."

The Best: Easy. The people. There is no other conceivable reason to settle down in Lubbock than because of the people. You simply won't find friendlier, kinder, or more generous people than in the city of Lubbock, Texas. Texans are, overall, friendly people (outside of Dallas) . . . but in Lubbock they make "friendliness" an art. One other thing: the sky. It is nearly always clear and a bright blue-- atleast 300 days out of the year.

The Worst: Also Easy. No Trees. No Water. Nothing around but dirt, dust, flatlands and shallow cotton fields for a hundred miles in every direction. They call Lubbock the "Hub City." Why? Because it is in the center of absolutely NOTHING. (O, and those really nice people . . . well, they kind of go crazy when they get behind the wheel of a car. The drivers here are psychopathic.)

On a side note: I mentioned Lubbock's new advertising slogan above, "The Giant Side of Texas." The powers that be decided last year Lubbock needed to revitalize its image to attract new people and industry. So, they dreamt up a new advertising campaign. The problem is . . . if you are reading this blog anywhere outside of the Lubbock area-- you won't ever see anything about it. Why? Because the only audience for Lubbock's new image campaign: Lubbock.

2. Describe an idea or invention of yours that you would like to see turned into reality.

I stopped trying to come up with new ideas a long time ago . . . and started thinking about how to make money off of someone else's old ones. I guess that is why i'm in Law School.

3. Name an overrated author, musician, and movie. Name an underrated author, musician, and movie.

Overrated: Are you kidding, I don't read; Just about any new big-label musician they play on MTV or whatnot today is over-hyped and overrated; and The Matrix.

Underrated: again, I don't read; The Impossibles (well, when they were still together); and, oh, Star Wars just doesn't get enough publicity, don't you think? . . . I don't understand why.

4. If your life were a sitcom slated to air in the fall, what would the show be called? Who would you cast in the starring role? And for extra credit, give us a brief treatment of the show.

"Moonlighting in Misery" starring SNL's Horatio Sanz.

There isn't much point in giving a brief treatment. I'm not sure they'd even get through the pilot before the network would decide its a piece of crap. (And for the one or two of you that actually read this lil' blog 'o mine . . . I wouldn't want to lead you on only to disappoint you. I hate teases.)

5. When is the fun supposed to start?

I don't know. I was previously under the impression it would be in 2 years when I finish Law School. After reading the Anonymous Lawyer, now I'm just not so sure.
