1.. Name a song on the radio right now that you know by heart.
Definitely How to Save a Life by The Fray -- and purely through osmosis. I think this song is faintly audible virtually anywhere in the world. It is like a stalker. I hear it constantly -- on the radio, in promos for Grey's Anatomy and for some reason, whenever I'm at Hannaford's. This quizzilla question inspired me to look up the lyrics, because while I know them by heart, I have never really processed them. To me, the song is about a missed or squandered opportunity to make something happen. Faced with a chance, you are suddenly paralyzed -- maybe by fear or self preservation or sheer cluelessness -- and have no idea what to say or do, no idea how to save someone or let someone know how to save you. I think everyone can relate to that. Another song that has kind of snuck up on me is Sundress by Ben Kweller -- great little song about trying to revive an otherwise great relationship that's in a rut.
2. Name something about somebody close to you that nobody else might know.
James does a spot on Meredith Grey impression. He hates the show but somehow perfectly channels Ellen Pompeo. The impression is not as eerie as Mikey Carter's Katherine Hepburn impersonation but it's equally as entertaining. Good luck trying to get him to do it, however. You may have to get him very, very drunk.
3. What was the last beverage you drank out of a glass bottle?
I don't drink many beverages out of glass bottles so I'm sure it must have been a Corona or a Nantucket Nectars Cran Juice.
4. Do you like or dislike change (as in coins)?
I have a love/hate/mostly hate relationship with 'the change.' HATE: It piles up in my bag and my car * Paulie likes to put quarters in his mouth * Too many nickels, not enough dimes * One time I chucked a handful of change into a trash receptacle at a Dunkin ' Donuts drive-thru. LOVE: An abundance of quarters for obscure metered parking spots on Columbus Avenue.
