  1. Very interesting answers. I enjoyed reading this. We all miss Robin Williams. There was this light emanating from him and it is hard to forget.Back to the Future (1985) is a truly great movie indeed, and I agree with you on Inside Out (2015).
    I am wondering if I can pick up this challenge on my blog too? Of course, if I do so, I will tag you and your friend. I haven’t decided it yet, just asking if this is possible? Thanks.

  2. What’s your worst category on Trivial Pursuit? Please do come to England 🙂 It’s not the one I quoted on my blog (went for a sentimentl one) bt the line where the invivible friend knocks facts and opinions over and says he just puts them back in whatever as it doesn’t matter cracked me up big time.

  3. fascinating list of questions – and equally fascinating answers Rob. Not sure jelly beans qualify as a “food”. Wouldn’t want to have to subsist on them if they are. If the question was “favorite candy?” that might work. But not sure it fits into an actual food “group”

      • Although I’ve heard popcorn referred to as smart food – so you may be able to work that out. If not – steak is a solid choice. I might go with pasta. Linguini with a red sauce and clams or maybe mussels.

          • I usually have it on days when I’ve skipped lunch and I’m starving. But a good sirloin is tough to beat. BTW – I really like Kate Winslet – but couldn’t find enough movies of hers that I liked enough to make a Top 10 list. I would agree w/ 5 of the 10 on your list.

  4. This is a great Q & A, Rob! It gives us a nice peek into your tastes and preferences other than movies. I much prefer chocolate, but jelly beans are definitely a food so more power to you. And where the heck did you find that defenestrate word? It’s a good pick for the definition alone.
    Sorry to hear your family’s going through a rough patch. I’ll be keeping you in my prayers. Hold onto that optimism, and I hope you had a good Yom Kippur! 🙂
