Two Turkeys.

Happy Thanksgiving Q & A With
Josh and Lisabea

As usual, when I pop by the Island, I like to bring my pal Josh Lanyon for an alcoholic bev and some witty repartee. Today we're offering ten questions to each other and to readers, PLUS a prize or two.

So Josh asks five, and I, Lisabea/LBea/LB Gregg ask five, but we all have to answer ten. Here we go!

(I am in Blue; Josh Lanyon is in brown, because he's just STUNNING in brown).



JOSH LANYON WANTS TO KNOW--


Josh: Okay, here are my questions and answers:

1 - The last fluid to pass your lips.

Do we count the rinsing away of toothpaste? No! The SO just appeared with Irish Coffee. TGIF! Yum.

LBea: Coffee. It's always coffee! I need to add some new fluids to my life.

Josh: 2 - Who was the last person you had an argument with -- and why?

I'm in the middle of a huge argument with someone though I haven't told her yet. Believe it or not, I actually hate confrontation, so while I can fly off the handle when it's not that big a deal, when the hurt goes deep I've generally got nothing to say. It's lockdown time. She's dead to me.

As for why...? YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID TO ME, LISABEA.

Kiiiiiiiding.

LBea: I'm not speaking to you. I am your bf. You would never hold back.

::bites nails::
Josh's Daily Vitamin

Josh: 3 - Is Irish Coffee a vitamin? (LBea interrupts: YES) Seriously, I take a boring vitamin supplement because my diet is shit. Well, not literally. And I take vitamin B and Omega fish oil stuff.

LBea: I was taking vitamins, but I always forget. I'm more likely to take Motrin.

Josh: 4 - What holiday chore do you most dread?

I dread them ALL. Mostly because I haven't done any of them. I guess I dread starting the list of chores the most, because once I'm in that mode, it will be okay. It's like war. Thinking about battle is much worse than...hmmm. Maybe not such a good analogy. I do hope the turkey won't be shooting back this year.

LBea: My new holiday dread is wall papering the hallway ever again.

Josh: 5 - Name one book you read as a teenager that influenced you.

As a teenager...I read voraciously. And I tended to take everything very seriously. I think this is true of a of books we read when we're young. It seems like...this is gospel, this is how the world is, and these initial storytellers carry great weight. Which is why it really is a huge responsibility as to what we let children and teens read. I remember I read a great deal from the Scholastic bookclub. Anyone remember that? And one book was about this guy named David and his friend...and I can't remember the friend's name, but he's a conscientious objector and he dies in Viet Nam. There's something about David's father accusing the friend of being gay, but to be honest, a lot of that went right over my head at the time. I mean, I was still waiting for the Black Stallion to show up in my life.

LBea: Snort. I'll send you a My Little Pony.

I've said Dancer's of Arun before--but I'm going to go with Fern Michael's Captive Surrender (or was it Embrace?). I was in high school and it was my first lady pirate romance. I wrote an English paper about becoming a lady pirate and I received a glowing A from my teacher who thought I was 'so interesting'--but sekretly I was reading pron!

LBEA BOLDLY ASKS--


LBea: 6) What's your fav. real Christmas song and your favorite pretend Holiday song? I know this is precipitous. I don't care.

I'm such a WASP--Once in Royal David City is my fav real song. And I love Mariah singing O Holy Night in that video when she's in church with her bubbies hanging out and she's in a Jessica Rabbit Red Dress vamping it up for baby Jesus. Now that's what I call Christmas!


Josh - The Rebel Jesus. But here's where I confess that I love Christmas music. It is SO uncool. But I do. Pretend fave? Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. I love all those jazzy, vintage-y Chestnuts Saved From the Fire faves. Ideally sung by Ella or Frankie or Der Bingle or Satchmo.

LBea: 7) What's the last thing your love said to you this morning?


You're so hot I can't keep my hands off you. I want you all the time.

What? I am not making that up!

Josh: "How's your head?"

He was talking about my headache of the night before, I hasten to add. Serious here!

LBea: 8) Thanksgiving Question: Dressing in the bird, or on the side in some pansy little dish?

Stuff that mother! In the bird! Also stuffing should have lots of sausage. Mmmmm...sausage.

Josh - You don't know where that bird has been! Side dish. It's an ongoing bone of contention in this household, by the way. I am all about the side dishes.

LBea: 9) What movies can you watch again and again, you know the lines, can jump in at any time, and will stop everything to watch it on TV even though you have it on DVD (and VHS)?

Monty Python's Holy Grail--and School of Rock, Moonstruck, The Bird Cage, and (Colin Firth) Pride and Prejudice. I like to laugh and I love love.

Josh - And we love to laugh at you. WITH YOU. Seriously, though...Gunga Din, Young Frankenstein, The Big Sleep...any episode of The Professionals.


Adrien English

LBea: 10) What's your newest addition to your Desert Island Keeper list?

Mine is The Dark Tide. BOOYAH!!!!

Josh- What?! You can't pick a book that isn't published yet. Pick something else. (LBea: No. Make me.) Meanwhile...what am I supposed to pick when I haven't read anything in months??? Books I am taking with me to DIY island...Dash and Dingo by Sean Kennedy, Three Wrong Turns in the Desert by Neil Plakcy...okay, I will take recommends on this. OH, I know. Ginn Hale's sequel to Wicked Gentlemen. When's that coming out? ( I am NOT making fun of you, Sweetbea).


So. Answer the Ten Questions by Monday Morning 7 am (I can't do midnight Sunday, sorry. Am too tired) and you may be selected to win a copy of Dangerous Grounds II: Old Poison! And an LB Gregg your choice Smithfield novella.


The Questions Again:
1 - The last fluid to pass your lips.
2 - Who was the last person you had an argument with -- and why?
3 - Is Irish Coffee a vitamin?
4 - What holiday chore do you most dread?
5 - Name one book you read as a teenager that influenced you.
6) What's your fav. real Christmas song and your favorite pretend Holiday song?
7) What's the last thing your love said to you this morning?
8) Thanksgiving Question: Dressing in the bird, or on the side in some pansy little dish?

May I just say that the pictures, as ever, are BRILLIANT. *g*

lbgregg said...

I make a fine turkey.

Kati said...

Ohh! A list. My favorite!

The Questions Again:
1 - The last fluid to pass your lips. Diet Dr. Pepper. Is it me, or does this question sound kind of pervy? Dirty, dirty LBea!

2 - Who was the last person you had an argument with -- and why? Scott. It will have to suffice to say that *I* over reacted and *I* apologized.

3 - Is Irish Coffee a vitamin?
I don't care for coffee. And I hope this answer doesn't mean we can't be friends LBea

4 - What holiday chore do you most dread? Putting together the Christmas tree, followed closely by stringing the lights.

5 - Name one book you read as a teenager that influenced you.
The Count of Monte Cristo. Romance! Intrigue! Swashbuckling! I'm in. It made me understand that the "a classic" isn't necessarily a bad thing.

6) What's your fav. real Christmas song and your favorite pretend Holiday song?
My *real* favorite Christmas song is Silent Night, when the church is dark, and everyone passes the light of Christmas to each other. My pretend holiday song is Christmas in Kilarney. I sing it to make my nieces crazed.

7) What's the last thing your love said to you this morning?
"I love you, Baby, I'll talk to you soon."

8) Thanksgiving Question: Dressing in the bird, or on the side in some pansy little dish?
Well, I'll cop to being a pansy, but we do our stuffing in a crock pot, which makes it as moist as in the bird. This year we're talking about putting it into the bird 1/2 through cooking.

9) What movies can you watch again and again, you know the lines, can jump in at any time, and will stop everything to watch it on TV even though you have it on DVD (and VHS)?

There are a ton, but the one that occurs most is When Harry Met Sally. It's my all time favorite movie. Ever.

10) What's your newest addition to your Desert Island Keeper list?

Well, my pick is coming up soon, and it will either be Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas or Scandal by Carolyn Jewel.

Fun list! Josh, welcome back to the island, it's always fantastic to have you visit!

joder said...

Great interview you two, lotsa fun!

And to play along, here are my answers......
1 - Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Can't get enough of this creamy goodness.
2 - My sister, she was being annoyingly hypocritical. If you ask her though, she won't realize we were having an argument. I don't usually raise my voice so if she thought I was annoyed she probably thought I had PMS.
3 - You betcha! Anything that helps you get your day started is good imho.
4 - Putting all the Christmas decorations away.
5 - Green Eggs and Ham. I still quote from it even now.
6 - Fav real one is Bing Crosby/White Christmas and pretend one is anything by Mannheim Steamroller (their modern keyboard stuff is getting a bit dated to me).
7 - I hope you sleep better tonight because you're kinda grumpy this morning.
8 - Cooked in the bird, but then transferred to a bowl for serving. We have cooked it this way for generations, so I wouldn't do it any different. Cooking in the cavity adds extra flavor.
9 - The Cutting Edge, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Wizard of Oz, and Gone With the Wind.
10 - Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

-Josh: "How's your head?" He was talking about my headache of the night before, I hasten to add. Serious here!-

Josh sat at the table holding his head in case it fell off.

Paraphrasing The Larton Chronicles because there's no better description of a morning after head =^;^=.

I'm chickening out of answering the questions, partly because sadly I already have all the carrots dangled.

The only comment I'd like to add is that yes, Colin Firth is the best Mr Darcy ever, but I'll sit down and watch P & P with Matthew McFadyen anytime, too.

Unless North and South with Richard Armitage is on the box, of course *g*.

That's a particularly yummy Adrien pic, BTW! Only 32 days...

1 - The last fluid to pass your lips. Very hot English Breakfast tea.
2 – Who was the last person you had an argument with – and why? SO. He was being difficult about picking up the kids.
3 – Is Irish Coffee a vitamin? Yes, but only if it’s heavy on the Irish.
4 – What holiday chore do you most dread? Wrapping gifts. It’s always me, alone at 2:00 a.m. Christmas morning, knowing the paper won’t have creased before it’s a pile of recycling.

6) What’s your fav. real Christmas song and your favorite pretend Holiday song? Christmas Rapping and Santa Baby.
7) What’s the last thing your love said to you this morning? “All politicians are corrupt!”
8) Thanksgiving Question: Dressing in the bird, or on the side in some pansy little dish? On the side in a decidedly not pansy Le Cruset dish. Food service background prevents me from wanting anything “steamed” in poultry juice. And, I brine my turkey, can’t stuff it.
9) What movies can you watch again and again, you know the lines, can jump in at any time, and will stop everything to watch it on TV even though you have it on DVD (and VHS)? Princess Bride, Ronin, Singin’ in the Rain.

4 - What holiday chore do you most dread? Tidying the house, only to find that the rooms are being systematically untidied behind me.

5 - Name one book you read as a teenager that influenced you. Ooh tough one. I'd like to say it was something very deep or one of the classics but most likely it was the stacks of Mills and Boon I used to drag home from the library every week.

7) What's the last thing your love said to you this morning? "Bye then, have a good day".

8) Thanksgiving Question: Dressing in the bird, or on the side in some pansy little dish? Don't have Thanskgiving here, but at Christmas we have both. The turkey is usually stuffed with posh stuffing like chestnuts and apricot and then we have good ole Sage and Onion in a side dish for the plebs who don't like the fancy stuff.

9) What movies can you watch again and again, you know the lines, can jump in at any time, and will stop everything to watch it on TV even though you have it on DVD (and VHS)? When I was a teen I used to know all the words to The Breakfast Club and The Lost Boys. Now it's the LOTR Trilogy (favourite line "What new devilry is this?" and Shrek (the latter from having been forced to watch it with the kids).

Oh my! All these answers are wonderful. I'm loving all the movie answers.

Do you have songs that make you all weepy for your babies too?

Josh Lanyon said...

Fun list! Josh, welcome back to the island, it's always fantastic to have you visit!

Thanks, Katie B.

Great answers.

Josh Lanyon said...

2 - My sister, she was being annoyingly hypocritical. If you ask her though, she won't realize we were having an argument.

Isn't this maddening when you're fighting with someone and they don't know it? I am OFTEN guilty of this. *g*

Josh Lanyon said...

"Santa Baby." Heh. Great choice, Kris.

Josh Lanyon said...

Great choice, Kris.

TAM. Why is Kris on my mind?!

I meant Tam. *g*

Josh Lanyon said...

The Questions Again:
1 - The last fluid to pass your lips.
Snakebite (lager, cider and a bit of blackcurrant to make it less vile)


It still sounds sufficiently vile to me.

Josh Lanyon said...

Paraphrasing The Larton Chronicles because there's no better description of a morning after head =^;^=.

It is quite brilliant. *g*

Josh Lanyon said...

7) What’s the last thing your love said to you this morning? “All politicians are corrupt!”

My God I love this. Sounds like home.

Josh Lanyon said...

2 - Who was the last person you had an argument with -- and why? My eldest son when I was trying to prevent him from tormenting his brother yet again

This is all part of the natural selection process, Jen. We're not going to let you come on any more missions if you keep interfering with the prime directive.

Josh Lanyon said...

this idiot for higher singer who forgot his guitar at my brothers wedding

Shoot. Him.

Josh Lanyon said...

oops that was supposed to be My Cousin Vinny. Duh.

NOT that you're paranoid or anything, Tracy. *g*

Josh Lanyon said...

4 - What holiday chore do you most dread?
All of it. Every damn second of it. I HATE shopping the most though.


It's like seven rings of hell or a six layer burrito or something, isn't it? *g* No sooner do you finish one task then the evil fairies give you another harder one.

Kris said...

Why is Kris on my mind?!

Cos you luff me so, Josh. *bats eyelashes*

Here are my answers:

1. The last fluid to pass your lips. Coffee.

2. Who was the last person you had an argument with -- and why? Not really an argument, but it was with my brother and about why an m/f pic would be on a m/m post. Needless to say he was a little perturbed when I pointed out the 'boobs' were actually a boy butt and even more so when I went on to explain why the boy was lying on the other boy in that way. *hehehe*

3. Is Irish Coffee a vitamin? This is a trick question, right.

4. What holiday chore do you most dread? Constantly putting the ornaments back on the tree - those that haven't been broken that is - after the boy kittens have finished 'playing' for the gazillionth time that day. *sigh*

5. Name one book you read as a teenager that influenced you. Hmmm, not really sure that I have one. In terms of influencing my reading right up to the present day it would have to be 'Pride & Prejudice' and Susan Cooper's 'The Dark is Rising' series.

6. What's your fav. real Christmas song and your favourite pretend Holiday song? I love anything sung by Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby. I drive my family nuts. As to pretend... 'Six White Boomers' by Rolf Harris. Kidding. I've always had a fondness for 'All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth.' It brings back great childhood memories.

7. What's the last thing your love said to you this morning? Miaow.

8. Thanksgiving Question: Dressing in the bird, or on the side in some pansy little dish? No Thanksgiving here in Oz.

9. What movies can you watch again and again, you know the lines, can jump in at any time, and will stop everything to watch it on TV even though you have it on DVD (and VHS)? Grease, Goonies, The Princess Bride, The Breakfast Club... can you guess in which decade I grew up. Dear God.

10. What's your newest addition to your Desert Island Keeper list? No way I'm telling. These biatches steal books out from under you.

lbgregg said...

Kris--such Drama! I knew someone was going to steal Katiebab's DIK choice.

DIK residents are choosing new books this week--and Katiebabs just had Demon Forged TAKEN.

Mwahahhahahahha


OH the Breakfast Club! And Ten Things I Hate About You. Great movie choices everyone!

7. Nothing, he loves me too much to wake me when he gets up at 5:30 am.

nichem said...

Great answers-- I may have to steal some. :P

1. The last fluid to pass you lips.
Sprite

2. Who was the last person you had an argument with and why?
My 10 yo daughter. She was mad I wouldn't let her go to a friend's house because she'd already promised her grandparents and cousins she'd go to dinner with them.

3. Is Irish Coffee a vitamin?
I don't drink coffee, so I've never really thought about it.

4. What holiday chore do you dread the most?
Putting out all the Christmas village houses. Fortunately, I've convinced my daughter that would be a fun job for her to do this year.

5. Name one book you read as a teenager that influenced you.
Hmm, don't know about influenced, but I was really into all the Daphne du Maurier books as a teen.

6. What's your fave real Christmas song and your fave pretend holiday song?
Real-- "O Holy Night". Pretend-- "Snow Miser/ Heat Miser" song from "The Year Without a Santa Claus" and "Baby, It's Cold Outside".

7. What's the last thing your love said to you this morning?
"The high today is 68, and it'll be sunny. Love you."

8. Dressing in the bird or on the side?
I don't eat it, but I'd have to go with on the side.

9. What movies can you watch again and again?
"Monty Python's Holy Grail", "Young Frankenstein", "The Princess Bride", "Support Your Local Sheriff". And I have a special fondness for "Tootsie" because when I was a kid we lived in Saudi Arabia, and it was the only movie we had, so we watched it over and over and over.

10. Newest addition to DIK list.
Come Dec. 22, it'll be The Dark Tide. For now I'll say The Channeling Morpheus/ Sweet Oblivion series by JCP.

Oh, and I already have the books Josh and LB, so don't put me in the drawing.

lbgregg said...

I just wanted to let everyone know how wonderful your answers are! I've been following along on my cellphone.

Sula--I think we've established that Irish Coffee is a vitamin!

Nichem--Princess Bride! I love that book, too.

Winterbird--Blue Velvet. Haven't watched that in years, but I give a tiny nod to it in an upcoming novel. That ear in the bag was priceless.

SiNn~After the night by Linda Howard Faith and Gray!! Classic right there.

Tam said...

I forgot to say I already have the books too. Just answered for fun.

lbgregg said...

Josh--I will tell you exactly what I want for Christmas to make your shopping easier!!! It's a book. It's coming out in December. And it rhymes with Lark Side.

lbgregg said...

Liz, remember when you said "no question and I agree LBea, it needs lots of pork sausage in it." ?

I want that on a t-shirt.

Moonstruck is the best. I can never decide which character I like best because they are all equally wonderful.

S7anna~I agree with Lanyon here--breathing is GOOD. :)

So is orange mango juice.

Cosmonaut~Christmas Is All Around from Love Actually. I'm putting that movie on my list to see again. Just..uhm...not with the teenagers.

Mei Leng~That Snakebite sounds...very scary. Although I'd be game to try it.

Joder~You had me at 'spiced pumpkin".

Kati!!! :) You space shuttle girl, you. I'll still be your friend, even though you don't like coffee (more for me). Thanks for playing and I hope no one steals your DIK pick.


PHEW! Ok thanks everyone--Back to the household tasks, editing, and it's MOVIE night. 2012 or New Moon?

Liz said...

LBea - remember when you said "I want that on a t-shirt"?
I just snorted coffee and irish cream out my nose - so thanks for that and I love visiting the gutter, I don't know why I don't spend more time there...good company, nice view.

And now that I have answered the questions, I can address the burning question posed by Josh, "When is the sequel to Wicked Gentlemen coming out?"

Marcy~I love Christmas music, too. There's just something about them--possibly the fact that you can't escape because every where you go, there they are?

I loved Old Poison, too!!

Sarah~4 - What holiday chore do you most dread?
Seeing my MIL. This year I've told the nurse SIL to hoard valium so we can does her on Xmas day. Peace will reign over our wee patch I tells you!!


Honestly, I didn't know you were going in THAT direction. WHY haven't I thought to spike the beverages???

So looking forward to the new Ginn Hale.

2. Who was the last person you had an argument with -- and why? My sis: for giving well intentioned advice that felt like she was telling me what to do with my kid.

OK I have to blow my whistle on this one because THAT'S NOT ALLOWED. You should throw down a little yellow flag at her feet and tell her it's a ten yard penalty.

Also: sekret. I hate Bailey's too and I LOVE Mexican Coffee. LOVE it (especially when they serve it with whipped cream).


Jukebox~Excellent point about the beans. Josh should put Vitamin B on his bottle of Baileys.

whateverfor said...

What's the last thing your love said to you this morning? "I love you!"

What movies can you watch again and again, you know the lines, can jump in at any time, and will stop everything to watch it on TV even though you have it on DVD (and VHS)? The Princess Bride, Labyrinth, Tommy Boy, Napoleon Dynamite, The Wizard of Oz, It's A Wonderful Life, 40 year-old virgin, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Sixteen Candles, So I Married an Axe Murderer, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Dodgeball, most of the disney cartoons, Galaxy Quest, etc.
