  1. Dennis wishes you a happy april fools day and enjoyed your list

  2. Thanks for playing along, Nick.
    The sound of laughter was a good choice.

  3. I enjoyed your answers.

    I love Jesus Christ Superstar. I'm impressed that you could choose a movie. I don't think that I could decide on one answer for that question.

  4. Great meme but I think my all time favorite was "Ally Ally Oxygen Free". Very nice.

  5. Wow - it would take me forever to answer this - I'd overanalyze too much! Good answers

  6. When I first saw that scene in Superstar it pissed me off. Now I understand it. Good show.

  7. Ally Ally Oxygen Free

    hee hee...

    LOVE Jesus Christ Superstar!

  8. This was really entertaining.

  9. Excellent answers. Did you sit and think about them or did they just fly off your fingertips?

  10. To answer how long this MEME took me: I answered the questions in about ten minutes and then spent an hour uploading and linking the songs and finding the right Superstar video.

  11. I very much enjoyed the insight into you, Rev. Nick. and found some of your answers a most pleasant and smile inducing surprise.

  12. Very interesting answers there - I have never seen this meme before. ec

  13. cool, i loved alot of your answers. I think the best part of these, is that we get to answer on who we would like to be as well as who we are. :)

    I will have to think about this one, but will likely play along in the next day or two.

  14. Brilliant, Rev Saint! Is that Pete Seeger singing that “just when I thought all was lost” song?

  15. "If I were an animal I’d be… a cat"

    Wait a minute - I thought you were a human! You humans are animals too ya know!

  16. Chocolate, eh? A man after my own dark heart.

  17. Nick I so enjoyed a peek into your wish list meme. It was incredibly thoughtful. "If I were a sin I'd be...forgiven"
    Stay well my friend! x

  18. I really like the way this one is set up. I love your answers and the music and the scene from superstar.

  19. Nick, I am LOVING this!!! As I read each of your answers, I thought to myself, "Yep...that's Nick!"

  20. Now that has to be one of the more unusual memes I've seen in a while. It grows on me. I also am digging your Horoscope over on the sidebar.

  21. I like those answers. you're a very interesting guy.. Have a great week.. hope you are feeling better.

  22. I must rememebr to do this - your answers are making me question whether I need Depends or not

  23. You are the second "book shelves" I have seen in this meme. It's nice to know that some people still read. Cheers Nick!!

    And Bugs Bunny Rocks!!

  24. Saaaaay, I really like this, Santa. I'm a BIG TIME non-memerer (lol) but this one caught my fancy. I think I'm going to lift it, complete it stream-of-consciousness, n'all, and put it up my own danged self. Thanks!

    And it is good to have the computer and wee bit of time to stop back around and sey hello to folks again.

    Hello, you.
    Liked the dental piece. Insurance companies are another life form, aren't they? And so it goes with much bureaucrazy. (smiling)
