Tapped for the Meme Quiz
If I could be a scientist: I'd be a etymologist, figuring out why the English language is so completely screwed up. (Whadaya mean, cough and bough don't sound alike!?!?)
If I could be a musician: I'm tempted to say I am one; I can play piano reasonably well. But my real dream, like any white gay boy, is to be a soul singer...Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Maxwell, D'Angelo. I'd happily give up a body part to be any of them for a week.
If I could be a doctor: Blood makes me queasy, and being a psychologist sounds like hell. How about a doctor of philosophy? I can do Heidegger with the best of them.
If I could be a painter: So, so, so many to choose from. For landscapes, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot or Asher Durand; for figures, Jacques-Louis David or Amadeo Modigliani; for drama, Caravaggio and Georges de la Tour. I'm an enormous fan of Paul Cadmus, and I love Ray Caesar, Sas Christian, and the graphic novels of Jose Villarrubia. Don't even get me started on gay painters or photography (my real loves).
If I could be an innkeeper: I'd either have a funky little B&B on the island of St. John, or run mega-hotels like Trump. Nothing in between...too much work.
And now to pass it on: I'm tagging the blogmasters Nick, Nat, and Tim. If they respond favorably, they'll carry this blog chain letter one more step.
