Top Ten Tuesdays: My 10 Questions for Liev

It’s been another one of those nights. We lost a fantastic 98 year old woman yesterday; a real character full of tales about battle & peace, love & war, even sex & hate. She always carried a raw potato in the bottom her purse as a lingering reminder (comfort?) of her time during both wars. She was generous with her stories and abundant with life lessons.

She was the kind of lady who you always have a moment for just because she’s that great. I woke up this morning pondering many things, but what they all boiled down to was why do I work in a place  where tragedy can be as pedestrian and yet poignant as a comb full of hair after the coroner has been and gone?

So, this morning it was a difficult choice to get out of bed. I decided to conjure up something that would allow me to bury myself in thought at work this morning. So, of course that means something Lieverly. I decided to compile a list of questions for Liev.

WHAAAAAAAAT, it could happen. ☺

Who knows, maybe someday His Hotness will be feeling generous of spirit? I know, I know. It was a shitty day, so just shut up and indulge me.

In no particular order:

1)   What’s your favourite band right now?
This seems cliché but I really would love to know. We all have music that stays with us forever. We know about the Gypsy music and the Classical music but those choices are weaved into the history of Liev.  How do you feel about, say… Transcenderarts - Lyrics to My Best Wife or Lowlander’s - Piece of Mind?

2)   If I opened a deli, what ingredients would bear your name on the chalk board? Yes, I want you to describe your dream sandwich.

3)  What’s the first significant moment in world news/events that you recall hearing about in your childhood – and describe how I affected you. (Hint: for me it was Jonestown – it was the first time I saw a child-sized coffin.)

4)   If you could not live in New York, where would you live? Obviously the sky’s the limit here. I’m so curious.

5)   If you could sit and have a coffee with any person in history, who would that be? I should add a caveat – anyone but William Shakespeare since that’s the obvious choice.

6)   You seem to appreciate and understand women a great deal – or at least more than the average  man, it would seem.  HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?  

7)   What is the best thing about being a man? I would also enjoy an answer as to what is the worst.

8)   Do you like hockey and are you a Rangers fan?  (You’ve done several hockey related projects lately so I wondered if it rubbed off on you).

9)   If you could go back and be the performer in any film or TV show (and do it your own way) which role/show would you chose and why? I have a list of films already picked out for you HERE if you’re suddenly at a loss.

10)   And from Last Tuesday’s list, Question #5 rears its horny head again.

Sigh. That feels better already.
