Inquiring Minds...

Blogging is weird. Sometimes I kick back and wonder what kinda picture do people have of me? Since I'm, well, me, I might miss explaining some stuff occasionally. Of course, since, as we discussed, I am me, I might not recognize that. So, are you curious about something? Wanna know the answer to the mysteries of Rude Cactus (like, why does a grown man refer to himself in the third person as a petulant succulent)? Now's your chance. If you've got a question, ask it! I'll post the answers here in a couple of days. So, don't be shy!

I have a question. Boxers or briefs?

Yeah, I'm shallow like that. I picture you as a boxers guy, but until you state otherwise I am living in a complete state of ignorance. Thanks for enlightening us all.

When Beanette gets here, are we going to get to see pictures of her? Or will they be cute little shots of her in which her face will never show? Or will there be no pics of her for us?

Another question, do you and Beth ever discuss your blog readers?

Posted by: Lori at June 21, 2005 02:35 PM

How's the garden doing? Still haven't seen a picture. I'm always interested in other people's gardens. I have no interest in your underwear.

Posted by: Vicki at June 21, 2005 02:39 PM

Where did the name Rude Cactus come from?

Posted by: Stacy at June 21, 2005 02:40 PM

I love your and Beths blogs, you both have such a talent for writing.. I aspire to be like you guys ;)

Where does your inspiration come from?
Have you ever had a dry spell writing?
And whose blog inspired you to blog?

and of course we must know if you have a innie or a outie..

Posted by: Angelia at June 21, 2005 02:43 PM

What are you going to name the baby? ;)

Posted by: Mrs. Cactus at June 21, 2005 02:54 PM

Where did you get your flair for photography?

(Really! I'm always impressed with your picture taking skills).

Posted by: Amy at June 21, 2005 03:04 PM

question: if you have cracks in your walls, whats the best method to cover them over so potential house buyers dont see them? (its new plaster that has dried out)

Posted by: minnow at June 21, 2005 03:08 PM

1. Does your feet smell, or wifes?
2. Who’s feet smells the worst?
3. If you had three wishes, but couldn’t ask for money, couldn’t ask for a house or car, move somewhere else, or stop someone’s feet from smelling, what would you ask for?
4. Was you ever told a secret that you was suppose to keep secret, but you couldn’t keep a secret, so you told someone this secret so it was not secret anymore?
5. What was the secret?
6. Did you ever get hit by a car and lived to tell about it?
7. Which one of these Superhero’s would you like to be and why? Wonder Woman, Cat Woman, Spiderman, the Hulk, or Kama Sutra?
8. Did you ever tell a joke that was not funny which made your big brother give you a hard newgy to your head?
9. Are your teeth white, yellow, brown, or gone?
10. What does petulant succulent mean?

Posted by: Rockchild at June 21, 2005 03:09 PM

Is Rude Cactus your first blog/journal/etc.?

Posted by: Amanda at June 21, 2005 03:11 PM

Have you ever had feelings (romantic or platonic) for a fictional character?

Posted by: Romy at June 21, 2005 03:16 PM

How did you get a job that makes living so easy for you and Beth?

Posted by: alfredsmom at June 21, 2005 03:20 PM

Yes, where are the pictures of the garden? I'm starting to think this is all fictious and that you needed to fill up one of your blogs...

If you were a woodchuck, how much wood would and could you chuck?

Posted by: Michelle at June 21, 2005 03:21 PM

What do you think of the new Foo Fighters CD set? What CD coming out soon are you most anticipating?

Posted by: Mike at June 21, 2005 03:29 PM

Shampoo first or last?

Posted by: lucy at June 21, 2005 03:51 PM

Do you like horses...?
(you know what i mean..!!)

no, really...a question...do you also take non-digital photos? (i like your pictures by the way)

Posted by: monkey typist at June 21, 2005 03:52 PM

Hopeless romantic that I am, I must ask how you proposed to Mrs. Cactus. (Or was it the other way around?) If it's too personal for here, I understand. In that case, email me and my lips are sealed. Please include the background music. I think I know you well enough to know you didn't overlook that detail...
Also, your three most cherished posessions? (not including people or iPod.)

Posted by: JuJu's Mom at June 21, 2005 04:40 PM

I'll ask the same question I asked other people on my own blog: what's your middle name?

Posted by: Spring at June 21, 2005 05:13 PM

Did you have a pet when you were growing up?

Posted by: carrster at June 21, 2005 05:19 PM

do you wear shoes?

Posted by: lizabetty at June 21, 2005 05:57 PM

You're going to be answering a lot of questions!

Here's mine:

What's your favorite veggie meal to cook?

Posted by: mrsmogul at June 21, 2005 06:08 PM

Well, I feel like I know all there is to know about you! ahahahaha! J/k
I'd like to know how you and Beth met...was it love at first sight?

Posted by: Kate at June 21, 2005 06:32 PM

Would you ever consider having a dog? if not, why don't you? if so, what kind?

Posted by: ava at June 21, 2005 06:55 PM

Ok, I want to know how you and Beth met. And since I am now the third person to ask, I think that means that you are required answer. :) If it's too personal, make something up: I'll never know the difference!

Posted by: Raybelle at June 21, 2005 07:12 PM

Okay, the feet questions kinda creeped me out.

Since you're a music enthusiast, and I always associate certain songs/artists with specific events in my life, I want to ask this: What song was playing when you had your first "real" kiss? (Mine was Boston's "Don't Look Back.")

Posted by: mooalex at June 21, 2005 07:45 PM

the most important questions of all:

toilet paper...over or under?

Posted by: jen at June 21, 2005 08:03 PM

did you ever finish your landscaping?

Posted by: Indigo at June 21, 2005 10:58 PM

What program do you use to edit your photos and create your little photo 'collages'? I need to get myself a copy!

Posted by: ironic1 at June 21, 2005 11:53 PM

Your brief bio says you wannabe a rock star. What's your instrument and how close have you gotten to this goal?

Posted by: etherian at June 22, 2005 01:58 AM

How do you find the time?

(Believe me, it will get more difficult with the arrival of Bean!)

But blogging is like exercise. You have to do it and you feel so much better when you do.

Sounds like sex now that I think about it.

Posted by: beautiful face at June 22, 2005 02:30 AM

What's your favorite food?

Posted by: Alison at June 22, 2005 05:24 AM

If you were stranded on a desert Island, and only had one thing with you besides a person, what would that one thing be?

Posted by: Nina at June 22, 2005 07:38 AM

I don't actually HAVE a question, I just had to say I'm psyched about the questions. Ya'll have a good imagination and are VERY curious about Chris and Beth..:*)

Posted by: wn at June 22, 2005 08:04 AM

I know your a reader, but do you have a favorite book?

Posted by: Mary Jo at June 22, 2005 09:28 AM

I want to know why the FBI taught you to fire a gun.

Posted by: jen at June 22, 2005 10:12 AM

Are you going to try the breast milk?

Posted by: GS at June 22, 2005 11:34 AM

Do you pay any attention to local artists, including local bands? I've just noticed how few people do. It's kinda sad too, I lived in Washington shortly before the glory days of Nirvana. It's fun to get to say I used to hang out with the band.

Posted by: boitchick at June 22, 2005 12:23 PM

I really want to know if y'all volunteer anywhere?? If not, what charities get your hard earned $$??

I also want to know if you're as obsessed with "X & Y" by Coldplay as I am! ;)

Posted by: Sashinka at June 22, 2005 01:47 PM

You were a haberdasher? Really? What was that like?

Posted by: SpaceCase at June 22, 2005 04:40 PM

What is your favorite color?
What made you start a blog?
HOw many bad pictures do you take before you get a good one?
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck had no teeth?

I am so stealing this idea of yours (the question asking)

Posted by: Amy at June 22, 2005 06:00 PM

OK 2 questions:

How tall are you?

And What did you first notice about Mrs. Cactus?

Posted by: amy at June 22, 2005 06:03 PM

A few more questions for you to ponder...

1. Coke or Pepsi?
2. What do you think of singer/musican Ani DiFranco?
3. If you had to predict at this moment, which candidates do you think will headline the 2008 Presidential Election?
4. What are you most looking forward to about being a dad? What are you most anxious about?
5. Do you think you are as honest and forthcoming as you can be in your blog knowing your wife reads it?

Ok...that's enough from me!

Be well.

Posted by: Rosemarie at June 22, 2005 10:07 PM

Man. You have a ton of questions now :) Should have asked when the list was shorter :) Anyway, I've noticed that you and Ms. Fish always respond to posts--even short little one liner comments. I'm wondering if this was conscious choice on your part or just evolved over time?

Will we be learning Bean's first name? Or will she be forever Bean :)

Posted by: wavybrains at June 22, 2005 10:28 PM

What has been your most embaressing blogging experience?

What's your favorite coffee?

And most important, what is the cutest thing about Beth?

Posted by: autumn at June 23, 2005 09:10 AM

Where is the most surreal place you have been to? (Mine was Pleasantville in New Jersey on my last US jaunt) and...

Favourite conspiracy theory and why...

Thanks for a really good blog, it's my first duty when I log on at the office...

Posted by: andy boy at June 23, 2005 10:29 AM

Can I ask another question(s)?

When are you going to do another audio blog entry?

And, I leave for Alaska in a week. I'll be gone for 3. Won't have internet access (I'm in therapy, I'll be ok) but would you be willing to call my cell phone with every new blog entry and read it over the phone?? :)

Posted by: Lori at June 23, 2005 11:46 AM

I have two questions, actually.

How did you choose lime for the color of the upstairs bathroom?

Why did y'all pick duckies?
(My best friend has a ducky shower curtain that says, "I like chicks" all over it -- appropriate for an overly-hormonal and extremely goofy male)
