IN CASE OF SLOW BLOGGING, BREAK GLASS

Not that I seem to run out of material that often, but as I approach the first-anniversary mark on My Urban Kvetch, I thought I'd take a page from Todd and others and open the floor to my readers: this will help me prepare my anniversary post, and could also serve as brain Drano in case I experience some sort of writing blockage in the future.

How did you get here? Why did you keep coming back?

What's your favorite My Urban Kvetch post so far?

What would you like to see me write/opine/pontificate/kvetch about?

If you were to cast me in a television show, what would the format be (sitcom, talk show, game show, improvised show?) and why?

Do you have any questions, suggestions or comedy challenges for me?

Post feedback and suggestions in the comments section--results TBA, depending on volume of reader response.

I came for the Kaballah, stayed for the pop culture references.

Esther--what is up with your comments taking an hour to load?

Anyway, on to the questions.

I got here because you were the first person ever to link to my blog. Thank you for that, btw. :)

Favorite post: The Law & Order one.

I would love for you to continue writing about anything!

I'd cast you as a talking head in some pop culture type show like the ones on VH1.

No other questions except: when are you getting your butt out to LA?

Oh sure, a quiz. Will it be graded on the curve?

1-I'm pretty sure I got here through a comment you made on someone else's blog. I keep coming back for the humour and the insight. The Humour for obvious reasons. The insight because I live in what I supposed was a vastly different culture. It's facinating to see the similarities (many) and difference (few, but profound) between your world and mine.

2-Hands down my favorite post was the prose poem you gave us after your Presidential election. Beautiful.

3-Write about whatever you feel like. Your blog, your rules. If you start catering to us great unwashed internets you're doomed.

4-Sorry, tv is the devil. Not the devil's tool or anything like that, but literally the devil. Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

5-Question: If you hate the headshot they use for your column, why not change it?

6-Suggestion: See 3

I like all your posts together, it's like gloating over all the candies in the candystore. They need each other all twinkling under the lights. I keep coming back cause you keep writing. And you write about things I like: Buffy, Judaism, fat-ism, and kvetching in general.

I got here because I was on the mass mail announcing the birth of My Urban Kvetch. I keep coming back because you're witty, insightful, and fascinating...and because you're the one who inspired me to start a blog.

Couldn't possibly pick a favorite post, though I did especially love the letters to Madonna/Madge/Esther.

You can write about whatever you want, and I'll read it.

I'd cast you in an hourlong drama just to show the world your range. And I'd be sure there were frequent musical episodes.

My darling E,

I saw all these hits coming from Kvetchland and I knew something was up. Sure enough. What do they say, 'immitation is the sincerest form of flattery?' I'm touched once again for calling lil ol' me out in front of millions. Tks for giving me a push in the right direction.

How did you get here? Why did you keep coming back?
The answer to both of these is the same. I got her cuz of you, and I keep coming back cuz of you. 'Nuff said.

What's your favorite My Urban Kvetch post so far?
Strangely, I liked the anti-Kvetch. Your introspect on the world seemingly gone wrong. That kind of depth, I do not possess.

What would you like to see me
Here's a novel concept. How about a poem of your life story which includes all your reader requests?

If you were to cast me in a television show, what would the format be (sitcom, talk show, game show, improvised show?) and why?
I've got a little secret. Been thinkin 'bout this TV sit-com concept. Guess who's in it? MUK. You're playing you. That's all I can say.

Do you have any questions, suggestions or comedy challenges for me?
Sheesh, I've been to town and back with you on trivia. Here's one totally out of left field. Hell it *is* 315 am. What is Scooby-Doo pal Shaggy's real name? No cheating, googling, or any of that stuff.
