Prompt And Circumstance 2, Electric Boogaloo

19 Dec

I am legally required to mention “electric boogaloo” every time I mention 2. Seriously, they dock my pay if I don’t.

WordPress has a delightful habit of posting the “Daily Prompt”, a function that suggests what people should write about. And I have a delightful habit of making fun of them! Because I feast on the tears of heart-broken writers, that’s why.


If your government (local or national) accomplishes one thing in 2013, what would you like that to be?: They should discover… (pause for effect)… time travel! Then, we’d go back in time to when booze was cheaper and drink the apocalypse away.

The end of the world was bad enough, but the hangover…

Tell us about a guilty pleasure that you hate to love: I would, but the judge said I have to stop talking about it in public.

If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?: Yes, because if we know anything, it’s that 15 is just not fucking young enough.

What question do you hate to be asked? Why?: “What are you doing with that knife?”

What’s your ideal Saturday morning? Are you doing those things this morning? Why not?: Is this an interrogation  “Tell me what you did Saturday. Did you relax? Did you have a good time? Did you, you fucking swine?!”

You have to have a dramatic light in an interrogation. It's some kind of RULE.


Write a letter to your mom. Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to: “Dear Mom; YOU’LL NEVER FIND THE BOMB MWA HAH HAH HAH. Sincerely, Erik.”

What is your worst quality?: You assume that I have a “worst quality”! I AM ERIK. I SEE ALL AND KNOW ALL!

A writer once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If this is true, which five people would you like to spend your time with?: Joseph Stalin, my identical clone, Santa Claus, my identical clone with boobs, and Snowflame.

Cocaine actually makes a terrible god.

I don’t have a picture of me with boobs, so here’s Snowflame!

The year is drawing to a close. What would you put in a 2012 time capsule?: A copy of “Call Me Maybe”, and a revolver with one bullet.

Tell us about your hero: Jesus, you’re nosy! You’re like that creepy guy on the bus who thinks I don’t know when he steals my hair.

“What do you want your government to do? What’s your guilty pleasure? Do you want to be younger? What do you want in a time capsule? Can I have your underwear?”
