what is your ancestry, and do you know your family's history?
I think your cruel to elude to my answer Thomas just because my Mum had to visit Maury several times!

I mean, I'm the one who gave you gravy covered bones when you were too small to eat solid food, and you yearned for flavor. It was me that cooked you the $90 seafood meal a summer or two back. I'm the best dad you ever had.

Awww, but you could become such a cute little band. Chief Longwind, The Noisy One and Little Big Mouth. I'm sure you're boss would be fine with those. Although I should probably wait until after I move down state since you see our coworkers more often than I do and I know you have plenty of embarrassing stories from my childhood that you could remind them about. I say remind because I'm sure they've already heard at least some of them ("Oh, we've heard the cutest stories about you for so many years, it's great that you work with us now"). Really, I'd just be evening the score.

No, I'm pretty sure I haven't tried those particular mushrooms. I'm just naturally weird and have a rather active imagination.

Your Purpleness, in my 60 yrs on this planet I have never believed in the ethereal.
Mrs B frightens the pants off people with her amazingly accurate readings of the victims past and future.
Do you believe in this ability or are you like me

I suppose I'd have to say I'm an open minded skeptic. In general, I don't believe in psychics and I think the majority of them are con artists. I think those who honestly believe they are psychics tend to fall into one of two categories: those how have done a few too many drugs or are otherwise a little... off, and those who are unconsciously able to pick up subtle clues of body language and unknowingly use social engineering techniques to discern information about people. However, I've had enough experiences in my years that I just couldn't explain that I'm not willing to write it off completely (I swear my cat seems telepathic sometimes). There is so little we know about the brain and how it works that scientifically, I have to go with the idea that lack of proof of existence is not the same as proof of inexistence. I'm also a very spiritual person and believe on that level that there is a lot we don't know. And like PF, I have a few ghost stories. So yeah, open minded skeptic.

What dish that you make gets the most praise?

If you could hang with one celebrity for a day who would it be?
