Tagged by Diddums. Found this one strangely difficult.

"The rules are simple. There are 9 questions (32), each of which has 3 answers, to give a total of 27, or 33. The whole point is that the questions are somewhere between eclectic, banal and downright bizarre, so that you can answer completely truthfully without actually giving much away. Just put down the first three answers that come to mind if you can’t work out the 'most appropriate' three."

Yes, that first answer is definitely intriguing. I'm assuming it wouldn't be an electric one, since that wouldn't be very conducive to playing underwater (not that water is conducive to playing guitar at all), but now I'm wondering if it's playing a 6 or 12-string guitar, and how it manages chords...

As always, you have interesting answers, Pacian.

I hope the octopus doesn't want gun arms too.

Is the octopus with the guitar playing...um...you know...that really annoying song? Is that really why you want the gun arm?

I've only heard of Richard and Judy but haven't seen their show. I'm envisioning a couple in their 50's. She has bright red hair and matching lipstick. Or maybe they're puppets?

I'm still planning on writing a post about your Story about Wings. It's such a great story.
