I know, I know, it’s been far too long since I’ve posted one of these interviews but, hey, life gets in the way sometimes! Just calm down, sit back and enjoy another of E’s Elucidations…this time around, it’s all about the tunage:

WHAT IS YOUR TAKE OF THE MUSIC SCENE THESE DAYS?

E: Right now the most popular music is from the hottest teens like Sean Kingston, Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE MUSICAL ARTIST?

E: Jonas Brothers

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE SONGS?

E: “Play My Music” by the Jonas Brothers; “This is Me” by Demi Lovato; “Low” by Flo Rida.

WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES A MUSICIAN POPULAR?

E: Their good voice and the catchy tunes they sing.

DO YOU HAVE AN MP3 PLAYER OR iPOD?

E: No, I really want one but my Mom says they are too expensive.

WHY DO YOU SUPPOSE SOME MUSICIANS HAVE EXPLICIT LYRICS IN THEIR SONGS?

E: Because they are letting their emotions out, just letting everything go.

WHY DO THEY PLAY THE SAME SONGS OVER AND OVER ON THE RADIO?

E: So people can listen. If one person listens and then they tell a friend, they might want to listen.

WHAT DO MUSICIANS WRITE SONGS ABOUT?

E: Maybe about girlfriends, boyfriends, love, having a bad day, practically anything.

WHAT MUSIC THAT YOUR MOM LISTENS TO IS YOUR FAVORITE?

E: Black Eyed Peas

ARE THERE ANY MUSICIANS YOU DON’T LIKE?

E: Yes, very many; Dixie Chicks, Barenaked Ladies, Vanessa Hudgens, and Cheetah Girls because of the way they sing.

ARE YOU A GOOD SINGER?

E: Yes, because my Mom says so.

IS YOUR MOTHER?

E: No, she doesn’t sing in tune.

I’ve decided to spare ya’ll the bitchiness that is accompanying my path to great ass-ness and instead will share with you the unfaltering wisdom of my young one. I’m happy to bring you another installment of E’s Elucidations. This one’s all about the cold, hard cash.

IS MONEY IMPORTANT AND WHY?

E: Yes it is important because you need it to help yourself survive and get food and clothes.

WHEN WAS MONEY INVENTED?

E: Probably when there were only a few people on earth.

WHERE DOES MONEY COME FROM?

E: It probably came from the Europeans.

WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT KINDS OF MONEY?

E: If you had to pay $10 and you only had $5 you would need a different kind of bill.

WHAT DOES A BANK DO WITH EVERYONE’S MONEY?

E: It keeps people’s money in a safe so it won’t get stolen.

WHAT ARE CREDIT CARDS USED FOR?

E: Charging and buying things and then you get a bill and have to pay for the amount you charge on your credit card.

DO YOU THINK CREDIT CARDS ARE A GOOD IDEA?

E: Yes, because if you don’t have the money you can just charge something on a credit card.

WHAT IS A 401(k)?

E: Never heard of it.

HOW DO RICH PEOPLE GET RICH, AND POOR PEOPLE GET POOR?

E: Rich people get rich because they probably have a very good job and they get $20 an hour. Poor people get poor because they can’t find good jobs and live on the streets.

DO YOU HAVE TO WORK REALLY HARD TO MAKE MONEY?

E: Yes, because the harder you work, the more money you get.

WHY DO SOME PEOPLE WANT MORE MONEY WHEN THEY ALREADY HAVE A LOT OF IT?

E: Probably because they want to buy something expensive and need more money to buy it.

IF YOU HAD A MILLION DOLLARS WHAT WOULD YOU BUY?

E: Lots of Webkinz and the charms, clothes and bags for them. And I’d buy my Grandma & Grandpa a convertible for the summer.

IF YOU WERE POOR HOW WOULD YOU FEEL?

E: Sad, because I wouldn’t have any money for food.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP THE POOR?

E: Give them money, food and shelter.

E: Are we done yet? That’ll be $1.50, please.

Dearest Blogospherians, please accept my sincerest apologies for taking so long in getting another installment of E’s Elucidations together. With some gentle prodding and excellent topic suggestions from the lovely Rachel over at Whostheboss, I got my ass in gear and am happy to present my child’s take on drinking and alcohol:

WHY DO YOU THINK ADULTS DRINK ALCOHOL?

E: Um, hmm… probably because they think it tastes good so it gets really addicting to drink.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ALCOHOL TASTES LIKE?

E: I’m not sure.

HOW DO YOU THINK ALCOHOL MAKES YOU FEEL?

E: Calm and relaxed because when people drink alcohol they are always sitting back and relaxing.

WHAT DOES GETTING DRUNK MEAN?

E: When you drink a lot of alcohol and then it makes you crazy.

HOW MANY DRINKS DO YOU THINK IT TAKES TO GET DRUNK?

E: Five or ten.

SHOULD YOU DRINK AND DRIVE?

E: No, because you might get in a car accident because you’re crazy and drunk.

WHY AREN’T KIDS ALLOWED TO HAVE ALCOHOL?

E: Because it’s bad for them. Their parents probably don’t want them to get drunk because they’ll get crazy and swear.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF SOMEONE OFFERS YOU ALCOHOL?

E: Say “no” and run away.

IS BEER WORSE THAN WINE?

E: Yes, because wine is made from grapes so it’s healthier and beer is mostly alcohol – that’s what I’m guessing.

WHAT IS A HANGOVER?

E: I have no clue.

Hope you enjoyed that! Now, I’m going to go grab myself five (or ten) beers and relax!

Alrighty kids, my newest weekly post – E’s Elucidations – is now ready for your reading pleasure. I want to thank each and every one of you who submitted questions for this riveting interview…enjoy!

WHY DO PEOPLE BREAK UP WITH EACH OTHER?

E: Probably because they are angry with each other and they are frustrated…and they call each other names.

HOW DO YOU BREAK UP WITH SOMEONE?

E: First you say “I don’t feel like being with you anymore”, and then you might call each other names and then you just leave each other.

WHAT DO YOU SAY WHEN YOU BREAK UP WITH SOMEONE?

E: I’d probably say “I don’t want to be with you anymore because I’m getting annoyed with you and I really don’t want to be around you anymore.”

WHERE DO YOU BREAK UP WITH THEM?

E: It could be anywhere – in your house, at a restaurant, outside, at an amusement park…anywhere (not in outer space, though).

CAN YOU BREAK UP WITH A GUY IF HE’S A BAD KISSER?

E: Um, yeah because if he’s a bad kisser you might not want to kiss him anymore.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE YOUR EX’S FRIENDS AND FAMILY AFTER A BREAKUP?

E: I would say, “I broke up with my boyfriend because he just wasn’t my type, and he wasn’t very friendly”. I wouldn’t stay around their part of the family…I might hang out with the friends still – if they were nice.

WHAT DO YOU DO IF THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BREAK UP WITH TEXT MESSAGES YOU ALL THIS CRAZY STUFF LIKE, “WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU LATELY? DO YOU WANT TO BREAK UP? WHY ARE YOU SO DISTANT? CAN YOU JUST BREAK UP WITH HIM VIA TEXT MESSAGE?

E: I would have to talk to him personally to let him know my personal feelings and so he could see the expressions on my face.

WHAT DO YOU DO IF THE OTHER PERSON STARTS CRYING?

E: I’d say “Sorry, but you are just not my type, and I’m really sorry because I just don’t feel like being around you anymore.”

WHAT’S THE HARDEST PART ABOUT BREAKING UP?

E: I’d say it would be hard because if they were a good cook you’d miss their food, or if they owned something together they’d have to decide who gets what.

SHOULD MARRIED PEOPLE BREAK UP, AND WHY?

E: Yeah, because that’s the most popular type of breaking up. If you were just girlfriend and boyfriend that’s not really being together a lot. If you’re married you’d live together and it would be hard to live with someone you didn’t like.

WHY DOES IT TAKE SOME PEOPLE SO LONG TO BREAK UP?

E: Probably because you like each other and you like being around each other and you feel so close but then they start doing things without you and you feel left out.

 

Maybe we can all learn something from a 9 yr. old’s insight! Please feel free to send me suggestions for next week’s topic. Toodles….

Ladies and Gents, because of the overwhelming popularity (ah…not really, just had to get in one shameless plug) of the post All You Need Is Love and at the suggestion of some of my readers I have decided to go ahead and post several interviews with my lovely and ever so astute daughter. She is extremely keyed up about this venture and cannot wait for your questions! So, without further ado let me put forth the first topic (suggested by Catherinette and Lady R. – thanks gals!):

HOW TO BREAK UP WITH SOMEONE

Now, if you all would kindly participate by submitting specific questions for me to ask the young one, I think it would make for a mucho amusing endeavor.

New readers, please feel free to join in…the more the merrier! You may submit your questions by leaving a comment on this post or you may click on the ‘Email Me’ tab to submit a question – if you proceed this way the questions will be kept secret until the posting of the interview…might be more entertaining this way!

Thanks for joining in on the fun!
