Q&A: Easy Ones with Glee
So, as is my nature, I will tackle a few of the easier questions first:
Q: Cindy asked: if they both wear bags on their heads can I set up my sister with your oldest boy? Just Kidding- kinda- Has any one ever guessed who you were? Did you acknowledge that supposed person or do you know only talk about football and never use the words buffalo wings in front of them, do you feel like a super hero? If i had an awesome anonymous blog I would feel like a super hero.
A: Cindy, we can discuss setting up my eldest FOML with your sister, but your salesmanship needs work. My son doesn't need to wear a bag on his head - but...I don't know your sister.
Of course I feel like a superhero, if by superhero you mean a guy who sits around in his sweats with crazy hair at 5:30 in the morning, typing. Cuz that's what superheroes do, right? Type? Along those lines, if I could have one superpower, it would be the ability to only put one space after a period when typing on a computer.
Q: Another part of Cindy's question went along with this one by Sharline: What would you do if you ran into one of your followers...you know, one that comments often and you know what they look like. Would you say something to them, or completely forego talking to them to keep your anonymity?
A: It hasn't happened - yet. There is a handful of people that know my identity, some because I told them, and some because I am stupid enough to respond to emails using the wrong email account. If I ran into someone and realized who they were, I would either introduce myself as MMM and never tell them my real name, or introduce myself as me, and never tell them that I'm MMM. Don't know which.
Honestly, I'm not too worried about running into someone by chance. My bigger fear is how to react when I eventually get quoted in General Conference. Do I stand up and take a bow? Will they ask permission first? Will the quote then be considered "scripture"?
Q: Both Diane & Linda had differing versions of the same question: Have you made a deal with yourself for the time you will change your name from MMM to not as MMM as I used to be? :)
A: I don't worry too much about that, but I am aware that the only 'M' of the MMM that is gonna change is the first one. Maybe if the millennium comes soon, I can add an 'M' and be "Millennial Mortal Mormon Man".
Q: To finish for today, the lovely Jocelyn asks: So...Tell us how you REALLY feel about Glee?
A: That's an easy one. Glee is absolutely the best show on television. That is, if you define "best" as being the show that is best at having mediocre singers reworking other people's music because there is such a dearth of creativity that nobody can write a new song. But seriously, have we really reached a point where people are lauded for re-working Lady Gaga and Katy Perry songs?
Or maybe it's 'best' because Glee is so good at exploring family values such as gay teens losing their virginity. Oh, and the straight kids too. Lovely stuff. Lovely. Premarital sex, homosexuality, promiscuity etc. and that was from watching one episode. If you want to understand the term "Defining deviancy down", watch Glee. But hey! The dancing and music are so much fun! We like to watch it as a family!
Idiots. Both the people who make it, and the people who watch it. (Don't blame me - blame Jocelyn for asking.)
