Waiting for the Best Offer

Every Saturday we bring you a meme called Saturday 9. It’s not to say that this is a bright idea, but it is what we do. A woman named Sam started this meme because our prior meme and great buddy Lola went into hibernation. Lola still occasionally posts, but it is about once every six weeks. So Sam contacted all Lola’s participants and invited us to her meme. We are not sure why she included us, but she did. All of Sam’s questions are in bold.

Saturday 9: Sweet Dreams Are Made of This

1. Do you ever have trouble sleeping? It really depends. Alone, not so much. Other than experiencing boredom. But after that night with the Johanssen sisters, I was plenty tired that next morning. So on that night I did have trouble sleeping.

2. Do you remember your dreams? No. For some reason, though, I remember YOUR dreams. You really should be ashamed. Although, you do know how to have a good time.

3. When you can’t sleep at night, are you worried about something? I worry about how the dollar will fare against the euro or the yen the next day. I also worry if you'll figure out how those naked pictures of your wife made it onto MySpace.

4. What are your plans today? This afternoon I am going to watch the UConn Huskies take on the Pitt Panthers with my dad at the XL Center in Hartford. I am free for tonight. We will treat it like a contest: The first woman to email me with the best offer wins! Enter here.

5. What TV character are you most like? My favorite TV character is Hawkeye Pierce. I think “comeback” wise we are similar. However, I don’t have as many great writers working for me.

6. What is your favorite thing to do online? It’s either looking at those naked pictures of your wife on MySpace or writing a post for WTIT: The Blog. It’s a toss-up.

7. Did your father go to college? If yes, where? Yes and UConn, which explains my afternoon plans. It does not explain one other quirk about me, but that one.

8. If you had to share an office at work, what type of person would be the easiest for you to share with? If it were my choice, it would be a former TV star like, say (I’m just spit balling here) Jill Hennessy. That type of person would suit me best.

9. Name a star that no one would guess that you are a “closet fan” of? James Blunt. Most serious music people put him in with Kenny G (whom I detest) and other incredibly boring and repetitive artists. For some reason, I really like both Blunt's music and vocals.

So tomorrow is our nation's second biggest exclusive holiday. After Thanksgiving, what beats Superbowl Sunday? In this part of the country you cannot do better that a Pats v. G'ints Superbowl. So needless to say, we will not post anything exciting tomorrow. But, here's a fair warning: We will return. Join us . Here on The WTIT Tape Radio Blog. Same time. Same Blog.

James Blunt?????? I'm sort of...at a loss for words LOL

Dawn said...

I adore James Blunt... my current favorite song being "1973".

Mimi Lenox said...

To be Blunt here....I can't stand Kenny G either. It's worse than elevator music or Enya...?? Is that how you spell it? Gives me the creeps. Maybe even worse than John Tesh. To be Blunt.

Favorite answer: #2 the dreams. VERY funny.

I don't blame you. I'll go sit in the corner, now.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...


At least that is one vote, "yes"!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...


Tesh & Kenny G. Now there is a one-two punch!!

SabineM said...

Love #6, but mmmm I am a James Blunt fan! ;-(
Nice Saturday 9! ;-))

SabineM said...

Though I don't agree, love mimi Lenox' comment!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...


Mimi actually loves James Blunt as well. Thanks for the props!!

I have to agree with you on #5. M*A*S*H is still an all time favorite. Hawkeye, and Trapper John are the dynamic duo of wit. --and you do great just as you are, writers would change 'you' to fit their wit.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...


Thank you very much. That's kind of you to say...

I guess I wasn't the first to email you for the "date" contest. Perhaps next time! :)
