Coffey Talk with CP

The musically inclined yet grammatically unchallenged Beth from A Cup of Coffey has interviewed me! It's taken me a while to get to the questions since I've been trying to be a dutiful Strategic Sales Executive. Ineffective, yet diligent. My favorite way to be.

With that, I give you our titillating dialogue.

1. How did you come up with the nom de blog "Coaster Punchman"?

You can read all about it here.

2. Who are your fantasy best friends?

One time in college I was mad at all my friends and so I started imagining that I had all new friends. I even visualized them being really nice and sitting in my dorm room being all adult & talking nice. Strangely enough, two years later I did have all new friends (the previous friends having transferred, graduated, or been dumped) and they were really nice. They even sat in my dorm room and talked nice just as I'd envisioned. Though there was some pot smoking too. Maybe that's why they talked nice.

In any event, isn't it great when your fantasies come true? Even if they're not very exciting?

3. If you could go back in time, what decade/city would you like to live in?

Poor George says "Berlin, before the war." That's a pretty good answer, though I hope he gets out before the bad guys take over. For me I would just say that I have a recurring fantasy that I get to live my life all over and make different choices along the way, sometimes to correct past mistakes, and sometimes just to experiment and see what would happen.

4. What's your go-to cocktail when you simply must get smashed?

Why, Margaritas of course. Like the ones I made here.

5. What is your theme song?

"You Only Get What You Give" by the New Radicals. It's a hard theme to remember, but an important one. I tried to post the video, but I'm having YouTube problems today. So you can listen to this song over at the blog of Tenacious S. (note: now I find the video doesn't work for Ten-S either. Bummer.)

If you'd like to be interviewed by CP, email me! You may even get a real interview instead of a fake one.

cp, you're adorable!

The Freelance Cynic said...

Agreed you are, although also slightly scary, like a terrier dog I feel I have to watch out for the teeth.

Tanya Espanya said...

Finally I read about your bloggy name, even though I've asked you 32 times.


Bubs said...

CP, you are so cool. I'd like to be interviewed by you, because you're an urbane sophisticated strategic sales executive.

Melinda June said...

You know how I know you're gay? You use coasters.

I don't remember this time when you were mad at us all and wanted to find new friends. What did we do?

GrizzBabe said...

And I thought Coaster Punchman was some weird pop culture reference that would always remain a mystery to me. Who knew it actually refered to coasters and punch?

Dale said...

Wow, the drinks did sound, um, smashing. Beth is quite an interviewer to pull out such intriguing answers.

Writeprocrastinator said...

Wow, just when we always wanted to know where the monniker came from...Beth hits with the hard questions! (echo, echo, echo...)

My guess was one of those nonsensical Japanese t-shirts that have English that sounds cool to Japanese teens.

I'll remember that, no coasters and I imagine, no feet on the coffee table. Feet on the "Dean" are okay though, right?

Transported back to the Weimar Republic? That's a little too dangerous, but Germany has never had a more artistic and creative area.

I meant "era."
