I think I probably would choose the Met if I had to choose between the Met and the USO, but I would not back out of a commitment.

Quote:
First reasonable message yet! I would respond via text and say it's OK and say Jess is in charge of decision making and we would let you know!
Is she normally "the decider"?

Quote:
I'd be very concerned and worried and call you and ask you where you were to come get you. I'd pay for your transport!


Quote:
Hmm. It would depend on how close we were by this point. If it were Adam or Jess I would call the phone back to see where they were and go visit them in the hopsital and not go to the USO. If not, I would be concerned but may still go get my Kirilenko on and text back to say to feel better Maybe I'd send you a little balloon too!
Dude, GET YOUR MAKIRI ON! That's an easy decision.

Quote:
I'd be amused and surprised Because I would not expect that from you. I'd text back and say "OMG Just come up with 50 off the wall questions to break the ice and all will be fine!"
Yeah, that would not be like me.

Quote:
In each of these scenarios I'd be shocked and call you and ask where the security area was This would not deter me!
You wouldn't be really, really disturbed if I groped Lindsay?

Quote:
I think I'd be disturbed, not respond and pretend we were ever going to meet this day
Cruel.

Quote:
I again would be disturbed but text you back to say I understood and that I would do this for you. Obviously I'd gossip all day about this incident with Jess, tell her the truth, and make her swear not to spill the beans
I think everyone would do this.
Quote:
I'd be bewildered and think "Wow, tools really do travel is pairs" I think this one would deserve a simple "WTF" text back.
Brad Gilbert is awesome.

Quote:
I would be shocked! How many would really ask Brad for a picture! I'd call you and tell you to wait for me and that we'd get through this emotional time together
I would. I wanted Pumpkin to get a picture with him at Wimbers, but he didn't come through.

Quote:
I would think it was hot JUST KIDDING I'd text you back and say OMG WHERE and definitely tell you to take pictures and wait for me
Why are you kidding? That would be hawt. BG and Killer?

Quote:
I'd tell you to take the money! We would have fun!
I had to edit this question. I initially set the amount at $10,000. It later occurred to me that anyone who wasn't already a millionaire would definitely turn over their phone for that sum.

Quote:
I would laugh and be amused and text you back and say OMG I LOVE LA BOUCHE.

On an unrelated note did you know the singer died?
I'm delighted--thought not at all surprised--that you knew the song. I did not know she died.

Quote:
I'd think you were weird but I would text you back say I accept! Anything to hang out!

If I may, I will interrupt and explain Fed Cup

Adam and I am being screwed, Bibberz. You may not enjoy this story because it involves TT, but it is also a story of betrayal and heartbreak. On WTAW, Adam and I play doubles every week together, and we're pretty much awesome. Any team would be lucky to have us. Last year for Fed Cup we wanted to start a team and play, so since there was no British squad, we decided to be team GBR I've been using a Scottish flag on there ever since. We get to the SF of Fed Cup TT, where we end up losing to Matt's Team USA in a retelling of the Revolutionary War.

Fast forward to this year. These people have no respect for history. They decide that the captain of each Fed Cup team is the highest ranked player of the country, and this dude sdtoot (also an MTF-er) is the highest ranked GBR player. He names another MTF-er Gavnich77 to the British team and never even PMs or talks or makes any gesture to me and Adam. Say, WHAT? No respect. Then this dude even seems to be bragging about how they are a seeded team. UM, DID YOU DO ANYTHING TO DESERVE THAT SEED AT ALL? No, I don't think YOU did. So go ahead and brag about what OTHER people earned for you Much the same thing happened to me with team Serbia on MTF. Speaking of Team Serbia, I apparently am the captain of team Serbia this year. And I am like, "WHY? I PLAYED FOR GBR LAST YEAR" Like, I just don't get it. And today I was told I should play for Ireland with Chris 84 When even Chris was like, "Um I always play for Slovenia."

It's just being a ridiculous free for all. I'm mad that no one even TALKED to me and Adam about this. I'm sure we both assumed that we were going to be Team GBR again this year, all the real Brits would continue to show zero interest and all would be well I wouldn't have even LOOKED if it weren't that this other dude PM-ed me on here, asking if Adam and I were going to play with him on Team Serbia. I don't think Adam will want to play on Team Serbia he has no love for any Serbs except for Tipsarevic's girlfriend

Default Re: In The Spotlight - MH0861

Thanks for explaining FedCupGate, Jess.

1. You have to replace your middle name with one of the following names:


(a) “Little Green Apples”
(b) “A Quick One While He’s Away”
(c) “Don’t Bet Money, Honey”
(d) “I’ve Told Every Little Star”
(e) “Thank Heaven for Little Girls”
(f) “Blame it on the Bossa Nova”
(g) “She Bangs the Drum”

The quotation marks count as part of the name. For example, if your actual name is Matthew Gregory Smith it might be changed to Matthew “Little Green Apples” Smith. Which of the above would you choose? Please rank them from best to worst.

2. So you’re a big fan of Achtung Baby? That was the second CD I ever bought. What was the second CD you bought? Feel free to guess if you’re not sure.

3. You know how there are celebrities that make you think, WTF? How the hell are you still alive? How did you not die of [enter cause of death] long ago??! I’m going to list a bunch of causes of death. For each cause of death you have to give one celebrity who you think “should have” already died for that reason OR, alternatively, who is most likely to die for that reason. Got it?

(a) Heart disease
(b) Lung cancer
(c) Old age/natural causes
(d) Hard drug overdose (e.g. heroin)
(e) Intentional suicide
(f) Chronic Masturbation Syndrome (CMS)
(g) Alcohol poisoning
(h) Liver disease
(i) Drowned to death.
(j) A broken heart
(k) Mauled/attacked by a wild animal
(l) Complication arising from cosmetic surgery
(m) Murdered by father
(n) Murdered by mother
(o) Murdered by a sister
(p) Murdered by a brother
(q) Murdered by a daughter
(r) Murdered by a son
(s) Murdered by a stepparent
(t) Murdered by a jealous ex-lover
(u) Murdered by a CIA operative
(v) Murdered by a disgruntled former personal assistant
(w) Murdered by a Craigslist escort
(x) Accidentally died while trying to fake his/her own death

4. When did you realize that you “don’t even like chicas”? How old were you when you were pretty sure you didn’t like them? Did you ever have an OMG, I was already pretty sure I didn’t like them BUT THIS REMOVES ALL DOUBT sort of moment? If so, please describe that moment.

5. You and Jess go to a nightclub, get roaring drunk, and start making out. You’re still going at it FIVE MINUTES LATER when a fire breaks out and a throng of people push you two apart on their way toward the exit. Obviously you head for the exit as well. Once outside, you briefly lock eyes with Jess, so you both know the other is safe. However, you completely lose track of her amid the smoke and mass hysteria.

You can’t call Jess because you left your phone in the burning building. It’s really late and you don’t feel like going back home at this hour, so you hole up in a hotel. You immediately fall asleep because you’re so exhausted. You wake up the next morning and discover that OMG you had your phone with you the whole time! Jess never made any attempt to call/text you. You decide against texting her because it’s too impersonal. Your call goes straight to her voicemail. You feel compelled to leave a message. Please write out exactly what you would say.

6. You hear a knock at your hotel room door after you leave a message for Jess. It’s your stalker! She barges in. She’s explains that she started the fire in the nightclub in order to separate you and Jess. She pulls out a handgun from her purse and points it right at you. She says you will belong to her or no one at all. What do you say? What do you do?

7. You have the option of increasing your shoe size by a minimum of four sizes. Do you exercise this option? If so, how many sizes would you expand your feet? (Your height and everything else remains unchanged.)

8. The Velvet Underground reform and start touring again. I buy two tickets to one of their shows in NYC and I offer them to you and Jess because I want you guys to see the greatest band NYC has ever produced. (Also, Lou Reed, the band’s front man, went to Syracuse. ) You both accept, of course. You guys pick up the tickets at will call. Once you’re inside the venue you realize that one ticket is the best seat in the house (front and center) and the other ticket is waaaaay in the back. Nobody is willing to buy your ticket(s) or switch seats.

(a) What do you do? Who sits where?

(b) Jess sat up front and you sat in the back. She thought the show was amazing, and you thought it sucked. What do you say to me afterward? Are you mad at me?

(c) You sat up front and Jess sat in the back. You thought the show was amazing, and she thought it sucked. What do you say to me afterward? Is Jess mad at me?

(d) Let's say that I explain that I thought getting one awesome seat and one lousy seat was better than getting two lousy adjoining seats. Are you mad at me?

9. How many songs off the Forrest Gump soundtrack can you name off the top of your head? Please identify the song by the song’s title or--if you can’t manage that much--by some distinguishing lyric.

10. You have to choose between banning Jess from MTF for life or banning me from MTF for life. Who do you choose to ban?

11. Lindsay sets up some charitable foundation based in Southern California. She wants you to be the sole trustee. You would have to move to and live in Newport Beach, California. The job pays $125,000 per year, and you are required to make an initial ten-year commitment. You will receive an increase in pay of $35,000 per year. You will have to work anywhere from 40-50 hours per week, but there is no dress code and the work is not very taxing at all. You get two weeks of vacation each year, but you are not allowed to leave the state of California for any reason during the ten year period. Do you accept?

12. I need more info on this stalker of yours. Please start from the beginning and describe everything.

13. Looking back, was there any incident that could have hinted at Craigslist Killer’s violent tendencies? Also, I can’t believe you failed to mention this murderous loon when you were like, Oh, I'm a survivor--once I managed not to step in front of a moving vehicle blah, blah, blah .

Thanks.

I was beyond shocked I also didn't... know right away. I had heard about the "craigslist killer" on the news but didn't pay attention to the name they had been giving. I logged onto Facebook and had an inbox from a New York Post reporter (I guess she messaged his entire friends list, I was his friend on Facebook) asking me for my thoughts, memories etc on him and this "shocking story". I immediately thought he had died. I googled his name fast to see if anything would come up and then was absolutely stunned I immediately called a few friends form college and we had like a 4-way OMG call. It was very surreal when it became an even bigger story the next on the news, people I knew being on the Today Show talking about him, etc.

I think I would choose "Blame it on the Bossa Nova"

My ranking:
1. "Blame it on the Bossa Nova"
2. "A Quick One While He's Away"
3. "Don't Bet Money, Honey"
4. "Little Green Apples"
5. "I've Told Every Little Star"
6. "She Bangs the Drum"

I love it. It has the highest ratio of amazing songs, and not a dud on there or anything I would skip. Consistently high quality throughout. This is an easy question, I'm sure of the answer - my second CD was No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom in 1996. It's still my second favorite album of all time to this day, I love it.

Umm, I think at some level I alwaysknew. I was pretty sure in high school, but I thought I may be bi-curious. I think I was very sure around 18. Believe me, I had lots and lots of experiences with girls to be sure I totally had an OMG moment though that removed all doubt I think I was at a 20th birthday party - now, throughout my later life, especially when drunk I tend to do anything with anyone Anyway, I went into a bedroom alone with stalker We had oral sex (don't judge me) but during it, besides the fact she was absolutely awful at it, the lightbulb just went off and I was 100% at that point this was never going to happen

She says you will belong to her or no one at all. What do you say? What do you do?
I'd probably say that I hope in the last 4 years you have learned some new techniques if I am going to belong to you

7. You have the option of increasing your shoe size by a minimum of four sizes. Do you exercise this option? If so, how many sizes would you expand your feet? (Your height and everything else remains unchanged.)
No, I don't think so - I'm happy with my size, plus then I would have to buy new shoes! Besides, I'd be worried I'd become disproportional and look like I have clown feet

Quote:
8. The Velvet Underground reform and start touring again. I buy two tickets to one of their shows in NYC and I offer them to you and Jess because I want you guys to see the greatest band NYC has ever produced. (Also, Lou Reed, the band’s front man, went to Syracuse.) You both accept, of course. You guys pick up the tickets at will call. Once you’re inside the venue you realize that one ticket is the best seat in the house (front and center) and the other ticket is waaaaay in the back. Nobody is willing to buy your ticket(s) or switch seats.

(a) What do you do? Who sits where?
I would offer the best ticket to Jess! I am a gentleman. Obviously she would not make a decision and say "No you keep it" then I'd say "OMG NO YOU I INSIST" and we'd just argue for 2 hours and miss the concert No one would sit anywhere!

Quote:
(b) Jess sat up front and you sat in the back. She thought the show was amazing, and you thought it sucked. What do you say to me afterward? Are you mad at me?
I wouldn't be mad if you gave me these tickets, I am not an ingrate I would only be mad if you made us buy them from you because then that is not cool they were random seats! I would tell you that Jess thought it was amazing and that I had a good time and thank you again for the tickets and make a joke about the random seats. I would not tell you I thought the show was awful

Quote:
(c) You sat up front and Jess sat in the back. You thought the show was amazing, and she thought it sucked. What do you say to me afterward? Is Jess mad at me?
I think she would be mad at you I would say OMG THAT WAS AMAZING and start asking you for your favorite songs etc.

Quote:
(d) Let's say that I explain that I thought getting one awesome seat and one lousy seat was better than getting two lousy adjoining seats. Are you mad at me?
No, but I would suggest next time it's probably better to get two seats together no matter where It's all about sharing the experience!

9. How many songs off the Forrest Gump soundtrack can you name off the top of your head? Please identify the song by the song’s title or--if you can’t manage that much--by some distinguishing lyric.
I can't think of anything : sad: I have nothing. If it helps, the first thing that came to my mind was Weird Al's "Gump" parody

Quote:
10. You have to choose between banning Jess from MTF for life or banning me from MTF for life. Who do you choose to ban?
It is tempting to ban Jess because I have so many other opportunities to talk to her and this is the only place we speak, but I'd have to ban you and tell you to join WTAworld : D : sad: Please forgive me!

Quote:
11. Lindsay sets up some charitable foundation based in Southern California. She wants you to be the sole trustee. You would have to move to and live in Newport Beach, California. The job pays $125,000 per year, and you are required to make an initial ten-year commitment. You will receive an increase in pay of $35,000 per year. You will have to work anywhere from 40-50 hours per week, but there is no dress code and the work is not very taxing at all. You get two weeks of vacation each year, but you are not allowed to leave the state of California for any reason during the ten year period. Do you accept?
No, I wouldn't. I'd go crazy. 10 years is way too much of a commitment and this arrangement would stifle me. I'd maybe do it for 5 years though.

12. I need more info on this stalker of yours. Please start from the beginning and describe everything.
Can I PM you, Adam, Jess and Melanie with this instead?

13. Looking back, was there any incident that could have hinted at Craigslist Killer’s violent tendencies? Also, I can’t believe you failed to mention this murderous loon when you were like, Oh, I'm a survivor--once I managed not to step in front of a moving vehicle blah, blah, blah .
Um, not really. I was very surprised. There was one incident though during the year that now I immediately think "makes sense". Four of us shared the apartment, we each had our own rooms and we had a common living room area and kitchen. He had put a TV in the living room. It was stolen one night And it was absolutely the only thing that went missing. He also didn't seem very bothered by it. After the story about him broke, and how he had a crazy gambling addiction and how hard-strapped he was for money, I'm pretty sure he pawned it off or something and pretended that it was stolen.

Thanks.

I also hope they play "Stephanie Says" and "I'm Waiting for the Man"

Did you secretly know I liked them Bibberz or are you pleasantly surprised?

Your reason?

7. "Thank Heaven For Little Girls" (I think this one would make me look like a child predator)
I answered this question (in my own mind). It would be in my top three. Hopefully the fact that I'm female might counteract what you said.

"For What it's Worth" Buffalo Springfield. I know it's not really a Vietnam War protest song but that's what it's usually associated with. Your favourite Vietnam War protest song?

Edit: I would like an answer to this question from BD, Jess and Adam too.

Yes! (I guess you've already kind of explained but still, YES!)

Great answers, Matt!
