    A cowboy or a spaceman?
    Cowboy: better food

    Pickup truck or a Citroen?
    Neither, I'd be a beat up VW bus with graffitti on one side

    Have an accent or no accent?
    Definitely accent, can't decide on which, though

    tour Jack Wells Guitars or CSAPO's?
    Never heard of either so I'll go with the Guinness brewery

    Spend a weekend in stripperdust with the Buckocaster or chasing gators with Scatter Lee?
    Stripper dust, whatever that is

    Find an unknown concert recording of Danny Gatton or Roy Buchanan?
    Neither: I'll go with Wildman Fischer

    Wake up to discover it is 1963 and you are either Roy Nichols or Don Rich?
    Don Rich

    Wake up and it is 1965 and you are either George Harrison or Jimmy Page?
    Neither: John Paul Jones

    wake up and discover that you are either Vince Gill or Brad Paisley?
    Vince Gill

    would you rather have invented the telecaster or the deluxe reverb amp?
    Neither: The Dodge Dart

    what is the single best feature about your home?
    Vince Gill once drove a Dodge Dart through the front wall accidentally because he was high on stripper dust and Guinness while listening to an 8-track of Wildman Fischer on his way to a John Paul Jones concert. I told him, "it's alright Vince," in that funny accent of mine and I made him some cowboy food and we went out and vandalized a Volkswagon Bus. He left me with these words of wisdom: "Don Rich is neither a don, nor is he rich. Discuss."

    Note to self... I gotta get Csapo to do a family portrait... it would be good to see if Uncle Jack would do one too... Who is the member in Au who has all the teles? is that ajaytele?

    hmmm those would be great threads!

    I remember seeing a citroen as a kid and thinking it looked cool...

    on the accent thing... I know we all have accents and we all don't have an accent... I was interested in your perception of wanting an accent. When I lived in the south and having grown up in a family of southerners, I picked up an accent when I lived down there.... but have a generic tv non accent now..... but I think as though I have one!

    An engineer I work with everyday is from London and he says that I can do a reasonable accent.. he's been teaching me some regional sounds... which we have in the American south too.... anyway..

    I hope you had fun with it... I loved writing tests when I was a teacher...

    excellent answers for those who risked... and I love all references to wildman fischer... so extra credit there...

    I once dated a girl with a dodge dart... they are roomier than most would think.

    Believe it or not, I have spent years ridding myself of an "accent." You would probably be hard pressed to tell which part of the USA I come from by the way I talk. I'm sure there are some who could, though.

    On the other hand, I am seldom wrong when it comes to guessing what part of the USA someone hails from. I have a pretty good ear.

    The opposite side of the coin is, I take to any local accent pretty readily. And, I often overdo it.

    Oh, yeah, about the Dart...

    My first car was a '63 Plymouth Valiant. It's the Plymouth version of the Dart. A girl with a Dart is one thing, a guy with one is another...I might as well have had SARS...Or Swine Flu.

    That's weird. Me too, in exactly that same order too. 74 Duster, 73 Dart, 70 Valiant. Slant-sixes every single one. Then I finally got a Charger. That thing was as big as a Chevy Suburban, with only two doors. I miss cars with front bench seats.

    Um, I ain't allowed to do, talk, or think about none of them things.

    tour Jack Wells Guitars or CSAPO's? Nah. I wanna see Iceland.

    Wake up to discover it is 1963 and you are either Roy Nichols or Don Rich? No.

    Wake up and it is 1965 and you are either George Harrison or Jimmy Page? No.

    wake up and discover that you are either Vince Gill or Brad Paisley? No, no, no. A cockroach or nothing. (And I think you've been reading too much Kafka.)

    Will this test be criterion-referenced or norm-referenced?
    Will there be accommodations made for special-needs students? Chet might need a scribe.
    Will the results be integrated into a national survey in order to determine the quality of getbent's curriculum delivery and his ability to meet the multiple learning styles of a results-oriented population with diverse socio-economic realities and career-specific expectations?

    Kelnet, you are in the wrong class again...your class is two doors down.

    oh and you have what appears to be part of a ho ho on your chin... wipe that off so that no one teases you.

    Oh yeah, and don't worry about Chet... he'll be just fine... he's got his headphones on and is nodding his head....

    I never had anything as cool as charger. My duster and dart were both the same color the Valiant was forest green with a very slippery bench seat. If you made a sharp turn you ended up half way in to the passenger side. It is amazing how similar these three cars were. I held on to the Dart and when the tranny went in the valiant, my dad and i popped the one from the dart right in. Same engine too. There was nothing my dad couldn't do on these cars. By time i got to the 4 door valiant i think my dad had pretty much learned every inch of that engine. The duster at least had a cool body style, the 4 door valiant was not exactly a babe magnet. :)
