By the way, Boulder Canyon and Good Health brands?  Also Utz. 

I'm becoming both fatter from, and more knowledgeable about, chips right now.

My least favorite is anything with the words "hot," "flaming" or "spicy" in the name.

I've heard bad things about these:

Which is pretty impressive. IMO, it requires some effort to screw up Doritos.

First choice if I can find them:

421064627_CapeCodWaffle.JPG.736c219d422f3d2ad4c5ae9261fefb20.JPG   and my standby/old faithful choice:  826787077_DeepRiver.JPG.20deda85cda9873072814c5a3932deac.JPG

 

If dip is involved, it must be sour cream + onion soup mix. Fritos are also acceptable for dipping. 

Chips that will not pass my lips are Wise brand (too salty, cuts up my mouth), Pringles (too processed), and most flavored chips.  Apparently I'm a potato purist.

I don't care what brand, but it's got to be cheddar & sour cream, mmmmmmm

I don't like any of the "fiery" chips, they all taste strange.

I like cheddar and sour cream chips, too 🙂. And just regular ol' sour cream and onion, again, any brand. And I like Doritos' Cool Ranch and nacho cheese ones as well. 

I've never had any of the firey flavored chips, but I'm not eager to try them. I don't like barbecue-flavored chips, but then again, I don't like barbecue-flavored anything, so...

You'd find me hoarding these if they appeared in a bowl:

The 40% less fat means they're good for me, right?

I guess this means I’ll have to bring my own bag of Cape Cod Kettle Cooked Potato Chips 
––but mine will be low salt anyway
––but if anyone dips a hand or finger into my bag or bowl, those chips will instantly become the worst thing ever. 
And that has been my policy since 1978 when I caught a terrible cold/flu after sharing avocado dip with someone with “the sniffles.” 
Evidently I’ve been preparing for a pandemic for over 40 years.

What if I have about 10 karaoke songs in rotation?  Because each karaoke night  we get the chance to sing at least 3, even in packed bars pre-covid. :D

I don't do karaoke, but I do (attempt) to sing Cara Mia when I am in the shower, does that count?  The key word is "attempt".  Someone can kick me in the groin a thousand times, and I still will never hit the high notes.

Sure, why not? I sing in the car by myself and if anyone is lucky enough to be in there with me, they get a free show.

Just yesterday on my way to the Walmart, I tore the shit out of this:

Proud Mary

I don't think I'd do that at karaoke night because; Tina Turner, but if I did, I'd have to start drinking again. 😅

Sigh. That video. Miss ya, Tom.

Great song choice, though, yes :). Quite a lot of his songs would make for good karaoke picks.

Same :D! I remember this song being on some tape of '80s songs I used to listen to all the time as a kid.

Second choice: Train in Vain (The Clash). 

Love that song. If I were gonna do a Clash song, though, it'd probably be "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" 

Ultimately, though, I think I'd probably pick something by the Spice Girls. Like this:

This song would be most fun with a group of girls on stage, of course, but hell, I'd sing it solo, I don't care :D. And if I had a guy on stage with me, I'd also be up for doing the B-52s' "Love Shack".

LOL, same. I have a strange thing for liking songs and artists, especially male ones, that can hit notes I could never hope to reach in a million years :p. 

(Good song, that, by the way.)

I’ve never done karaoke, but it it’s been on my bucket list for many years. I always imagine the song being Janis Joplin’s “Me and Bobby McGee.”

Meanwhile, I sing and hum in the shower and on walks in weather too cold for anyone else. The last couple of days it was Simon and Garfunkel songs. Got to practice for my future karaoke night —wherever and whenever that may be.

I'd do a duet w/ you if you'd like!  

This was one of the songs one of my sister's and I sang together when we did dishes at night.  

I've been told I sound pretty good on Dream a Little Dream of me by Mama Cass so I'd probably do that one.

I would probably pick "The Game of Love" by Santana featuring Michelle Branch.  However, I have a lot of experience singing "Hearts" by Marty Balin to my cat because I would play the same mixed CD over and over during my workout and that song would come up just before it was time to give him his dental food.  I sang to him once during this time, and he came to expect it ever since.  He enjoyed this song more than others, as he would react (meow or chatter) at the appropriate times instead of just licking himself the whole time.

You don't have to sing well to do karaoke.  Just have fun!  Ok, so I'll pick a few of my "go-tos" and post them here.  

In the beginning I always went for - Wild Boys by Duran Duran.  It's one of my fave 80s bands and in my range.  Plus it's a good song for belting.

Soon after I learned I could "rock out" Wannabe by the Spice Girls, even doing all parts and get the whole bar behind me singing along.

To mix things up, I added Pepper by the Butthole Surfers.

And I've since added Rich Girl by Hall & Oates, a few songs by The Hooters, I Love Rock & Roll, Do Ya Think I'm Sexy, love doing either part of Love Shack, and several others.  I can also highlight exactly how creepy Barbie Girl is (and still have fun with it).  Oh, and if a certain 5 others join we all do Cellblock Tango.

Bonus question: And which type or flavor of chip do you hate with the fire of a thousand nuns?

Thank you for bringing the nuns back into the conversation.  I tried to reintroduce them recently on another thread and no-one recognized them.

Chips (crisps) I hate: cheese and onion.

The last time I saw my mother in person --before the pandemic and before she passed last summer-- she could no longer move or speak, but she could focus her eyes and blink and think, so I spent hours showing her pictures on my laptop, and when we had looked at all of them, I spent many more hours with her Googling Red Carpet Fashion because she had always loved that --fashion and Hollywood. Here's one that Mom, ever the Fairy Godmother, might have selected for the ball, although Mom, whose last job was managing fashion boutiques, would have done something more attractive with the belt, and the sleeves would have been either longer or shorter:

I am of course going with the idea that I am young and thin and my arms are perfectly toned when I wear this dress. There's a fairy godmother involved. It could happen.

This is only the most important question you guys have ever asked, heh. As the true Princess that I am, I could never settle on just one dress for such an event. So I narrowed it down to 5 after must research into the wee hours of the morning last night. They are as follows:

You've died and gone on to whatever is necessary to make this question work.

You are greeted by a representative of the afterlife who is there to answer any questions about your time on earth!

First you MUST get the answer to one of these three questions:

  • Everyone who secretly had a crush on you at some point
  • The grossest thing you ever ate
  • Biggest financial opportunity you missed (and how much)

Tell us which one, and then tell us at least one more question you would ask.*

* No politics, no COVID, and no broad "Why are people terrible..." please.

 

For ideas, here are John Larroquette and Dana Carvey in the sketch that inspired this question.

After watching that sketch and getting the parameters for grossest thing I ever ate, it would have to be whatever I ordered from this hole-in-the-wall late night restaurant back in grad school.  I knew this place had questionable food handling procedures, but their onion rings were that perfectly golden brown you can only achieve with old oil in a fryer that was never cleaned properly.  I also knew, never to actually set foot in that establishment in daylight and sober.  I only ordered delivery from there.

Also, soft serve ice cream.  Like seriously, so many restaurants do no clean their machines properly.  The reason why the ice cream machine is always down at McDonalds--they have not properly cared for it and the old mix has frozen solid inside.

This one. Cause I'll find everyone that didn't and rattle my ghostly chains at them and shriek in their ear.

My other question: Why aren't we bald? Do aliens like on the X-Files exist? Of course they do. So why do they get to be bald and we don't? It would have saved so much trouble. I would have rocked my bald head. But then everyone would just make fun of the shape of each others heads. So never mind. Why does humanity suck so much? 😘
