E is for Easy
What is your most favorite sound?
It's the sound of running water, from hanging around a babbling brook to a mighty waterfall. I'm even sated by listening to the shower in the morning. I think it may be a Pisces thing.
What is your least favorite sound?
The sound of a dentist's drill. In my mouth.
If someone were to play you in the movie of your life, which actor would that be?
Academy Award winner for his performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in the 2006 film The Last King of Scotland Forest Whitaker, who has the exact same birthday as a loved one of mine.
What food would you most like to have if nutrition and calories were not an issue?
Oh, there are so many; how about one of these burgers?
What utterly impractical or useless skill do you possess that most people do not?
The ability to make the sound of a kazoo, without a kazoo.
What top 3 people (dead or alive) would you invite to dinner?
I thought about this for awhile and decided on Benjamin Franklin, Mohandas K. Gandhi and Grace Kelly. "Hey, Ben, you know that electricity you noted? They've harnessed it so that there are now moving pictures, and Grace is in some of them." Franklin would likely want to get randy, but struck by Gandhi's essence, he demurs.
What would the main course be?
Some sort of vegetarian lasagna, with eggplant and spinach.
What piece of music do you most identify with?
It would be the song you can hear HERE.
"It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that"
Now I EXPECT that you will EXCITE and ENTERTAIN us all with your ESSAYS.

I am loving the responses to these questions Rog - a great insight into the minds of those we know through blogging! I think I love the idea of the person playing you in a movie - can't see he would go down too well in a library however! lol!ReplyDelete
A great intro as ever - thanks for this - always makes my day!
Excellent responses and entertaining!ReplyDelete
I think your interview was very entertaining. Forest Whitaker is a great choice. He's certainly a very diverse actor. I never thought about it before but I think the sound of water is one of my favorite sounds too. Happy Valentine's Day!ReplyDelete
Oh I just LOVED this! I love your song, your conversation, and I also LOVE the sound of falling water (I do my best thinking in the shower....) and I am NOT a Pisces. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!ReplyDelete
I will settle for "A Big Mac" my favorite burger. I allow myself one a month. But, the burger in your pictures look delicious.ReplyDelete
Vegetarian lasagna would be great! I put spinach the last time I made and it was delish!ReplyDelete
Really Entertaining-I think I would settle for a vegetarian lasagne with spinach also and I love to hear the waves rushing in on a seashore - thanks for sharing - Jane UKReplyDelete
Eccentric & entertaining ;)ReplyDelete
Wonderful answers to the survey, Roger! I feel like I know a little more about you now.ReplyDelete
you are even funnier than Berowne!! And I think Kermit's song is very appropriate! It's not easy to be Green, but....it's beautiful!Delete
Entertaining answers! I haven't come across "extruding" in awhile. I like the same sound. Had the pleasure of sleeping in a pretty little cottage with a wee waterfall nearby. Ah Kermit, there you are!ReplyDelete
Roger Green, you are too funny. I'll bet it's not only easy being Roger Green, it's also a great deal of fun.ReplyDelete
Now, back to my Essay for the day. Rightbackatcha,
I always opt for a veggie lasagne, but without the spinach. E for entertaining.ReplyDelete
Nice to be back!ReplyDelete
Enjoyable and engaging.
What an enlightening intro. Thanks for egging us on.
Today, I shall ensnare the lovers among us with an excerpt of Endless Love And Devotion
An elucidating and erudite entry, to be sure! My weird talent is crossing my EYES...the (I think) unusual part being that I can with one eye while keeping the other one crossed...ReplyDelete
excellent, entertaining and an easy read.ReplyDelete
Roger, great to get to you a little better, but did you really have to bring up my one nightmare, the sound of the dentist's drill?!ReplyDelete
Oops, great to get to knowReplyDelete
Fun to join in your ABC Wednesday meme fun! Kind regards from Eagan Daily Photo in MinnesotaReplyDelete
Excellent Intro Roger. Making a Kazoo sound without a Kazoo. We share the same talent. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the morning LOL....
I am looking forward the interviews each week....it is so interesting to see how funny each of the responses they give to the serious questions....this is what blogging is all about.....thanks for the laughs and getting to know people better and thanks to ABC people and Roger for giving us a platform to join together and express ourselves and get such great validation.ReplyDelete
I'd take one of those burgers too. I'm hungry!ReplyDelete
I have to agree with that dreaded dentist drill!ReplyDelete
Enjoyed your intro, Roger.
My house is by the main road, and a bus stop is right in front. In my city, buses run on schedule. if they are ahead, they stop at the bus stop. My least favorite sound is the running giant Mercedes bus. Why they don't kill the engine, I don't undersatnd.ReplyDelete
My friends say it is EASY to comprehend. To kill is and start again cost more money.
I say, It is EASY just to let the engine run. lazy bugger.
I like your article posting this is really nice article and very informative blog i really like your article thanks for sharing it.....Delete
