Taken from my friend TimB.

List 10 Roleplaying Games that made a lasting impression on you as a TEENAGER. Don’t take too long and don’t think too long

HA HA!! This one’s easy.

Since there were no roleplaying games when I was a teenager (the late 1960s to 1973 or so), there were no rpgs that made a lasting impression on me as a teenager.

So there!

Long day at work, but I’m finally home. A bit of a distraction needed, so here you go…

One of my favourite Canadian musicians is Melanie Doane. She has a wonderful track called “Wilma or a Betty Man”, that asks a series of questions. I thought I would answer the questions here, and give folks some insight into myself.

Here’s the song from Youtube (no video of the song, unfortunately).

And here are my answers to the questions. Take ’em and paste ’em for yourself, too. πŸ™‚

Are You a Wilma or a Betty Man?

1. Wilma or a Betty Man?
Betty, definitely Betty.

2. Mercedes of a Trans Am?
Mercedes. Would that I could afford one. πŸ™‚

3. Single malt or beer?
Single malt.

4. Like it when hair is touched?
Love it, under the right circumstances. <g>

5. Boxers or briefs?

6. First kiss?
First kiss was from my mother, of course. πŸ™‚ First *romantic* kiss was from Jenny Halliwell, in Grade 4.

7. What do you wear to bed?
Nothing. Sometimes, a pair of boxers. In winter, flannel pjs.

8. Do you think Elvis is dead?
Nope, he just left the building.

9. Ginger or Mary Anne?
Mary Anne.

So post up your results, too. πŸ™‚
