B is for Beginning interview with Berowne

ABC is an evolving phenomenon and we like to keep it mind BLOWING!



This round we are going to be introducing contributors.....starting with our very own Berowne


I caught up with him last week, busy man he is, and he shared the following fascinating insight into his world!

Dear Mrs. Nesbitt: My friend Berowne is indeed honored to have been chosen to represent the letter “B” this week. I hope bloggers will forgive him for treating the subject with a certain degree of levity. Herewith his answers:

 “What is your most favorite sound?”
Berowne: Hearing from my son or daughter, when neither of ‘em needs money.

“What is your least favorite sound?"
When they need money.

"If someone were to play you in the movie of your life, which actor would that be?”
George Clooney has already expressed interest, but so far no decision has been made.

“What food would you most like to have if nutrition and calories were not an issue?”
First off, I like frangipane. I have no idea what it is; I just enjoy saying the word. Then there’s coq au vin – providing it’s made with real cocoa.

“What utterly impractical or useless skill do you possess that most people do not?”
Paraphrasing Oscar Wilde, most of my skills are impractical, useless, immoral or illegal.

“What top 3 people (dead or alive) would you invite to dinner?”
Well, first off, I’d have to make a basic decision. They should all be dead or all alive. You can’t have dead and alive mixing; every time that has been tried it has ended badly.

“What would the main course be?”Fricassee of mountain goat is always well received.

“What piece of music do you most identify with?”The hip-hop version of “Seventy-Six Trombones.”

Berowne looks forward to seeing all you folks again on the internet. He says goodbye with, as they say south of the border, “Vaya con huevos!”

  9. Wow. What a fantastic shout-out. I am humbly grateful - or gratefully humble, whichever comes first. Forget about Newt or Mitt or the rest; Denise Nesbitt for President!

    1. Er, Berowne - Unfortunately, Denise is not able to serve as President, not being American and all.

    1. EXACTLY Dina - but let's face it pretty AWESOME questions eh? Roger is some team guy to have on board! NOW if HE came up with a set of questions to ask prospective candidates for US president we WOULD see the men being sorted from the boys!!!! (Or women lol)

  11. Brilliant Beginning with Berowne! As a follower of his site, I could tell he has quite the sense of humour, a trait I admire and covet in my fellow human BEANS!

  12. Hello.
    Haha...what a fun interview!
    Great way to highlight participants who we might not get a chance to visit during the week.
    Nice one Denise!

  13. Oh, I love love love the interview with Berowne. Isn't he fabulous? How about Berowne for president? Or, if he's too busy, how about Roger for President and Berowne for vice president. I'll bet he knows more about vices than the rest of us put together (purely from an observational standpoint, of course, having none of his own except offspring requiring money).

  19. Roger O G: "Unfortunately, Denise is not able to serve as President, not being American and all."
    A minor problem easily solved by a quick amendment to the Constitution. And given the current collection of candidates, it might not be such a bad idea. :-)

    1. A QUICK amendment? Surely, sir, you jest. The last amendment took 203 years to ratify!
