Everything you never wanted to know about Katdish

I was going to try to write a serious post today, but I just can’t pull those things out of my hat like some folks (cough…Billy Coffey…cough). Also? I don’t wear hats. So instead, I am unabashedly stealing his idea from last week.

So, here’s your chance to ask me anything and everything. I’m excited and terrified all at the same time. But I will attempt to answer the questions as honestly and openly as I can. Unless I don’t want to. If that’s the case, I’ll make something up that I think you want to hear. Because, as you know, I’m all about making my readers happy!

Possible topics of interest:

  • A.D.D. and how I deal with it; or not deal with it, as the case may be
  • What I do when I’m not on the computer?
  • Have I always been like this?
  • What’s up with all the monkey butt references?
  • Why do I always say “That’s what she said”?
  • How long do I think it will take before I become the next social media darling via Twitter?
  • Paper or plastic?
  • If I were a tree, what kind of tree would I be?
  • What is the second most used keyword search topic that lands people on this blog besides “katdish”?
  • What famous people read my blog and never comment? (that should be fun)
  • Who’s my favorite commenter?
  • What’s my favorite blog beside this one?
Okay, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gonna lie about those last two. This should be quite interesting. I will write a follow up post on Saturday, so get those questions in early. I need plently of time to ponder them.

Geez. I’m a glutton for punishment…

    >First comment!

    Yeah baby!

    >OK, so getting the first comment meant a little more in teh days when I actually read the post before commenting.. but hey, who needs to get meaning from it?

    I'd like to know whether you prefer burgers of hotdogs.

    >How do you decide which Katdish shows up on any given day? And why a chicken and not a bunny?

    >I, for one, would like to know if all of this blogging and Tweeting and general madness is leading somewhere. What do you want out of life, Katdish?

    >I think I know the answer to the 'search' reference… Have you actually found the person all these people are searching for? (Because it's not me I'm telling ya.) (!) or is it (.)(.)

    (Tell me I did NOT just do that…you are a bad influence Katdish. And now I must go read Ephesians 5 which ironically IS my devotion for today. Sigh.)

    >First of all, I know the answer to the last two. 🙂 Your favorite other blog is fottsp, and your favorite commenters ignore your feelings about emoticons and leave them anyway 😉 because you secretly enjoy being annoyed. Not pissed. Just annoyed.

    My question for you is if you were ADD as a child, and what that was like. As a teacher, I have worked with students who have ADD, and I have struggled with expectation. I wanted to be compassionate to their needs without expecting less of them. How did you cope? Did any of your teachers work with you in such a way as to improve your confidence then (and how did they do that)? Do you have any advice to give teachers with students who have ADD in their class?

    >If you could have dinner with any three people…alive, dead, characters, real people…ANYone, who would it be?

    My husband got asked this on an actual interview. His reply was, "Jesus, Michael Stipe, and Homer Simpson." I thought it was an excellent answer, but he didn't get the job…??

    Oooo…I have a real one, too. When did you get diagnosed with A.D.D. As a kid? As an adult? What was that like?

    >Why did you first start blogging?

  11. Nick the Geek June 9, 2009 at 10:14 am #

    >Did you inhale?

    How do you define "is?"

    Oh wait these are questions for a certain past president …

    What do you do when it is so hot you can't move and so humid the air is more like the swimming pool?

    >When you think of childhood, what's the first memory that pops in your head? Also, have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    Ha, another Jack Nicholson movie reference (I knew you were all about those). :I (my emoticon quit emoting)

  13. Jewda June 9, 2009 at 12:09 pm #

    >Can I leave several questions? Yes? Thanks.

    1. Do you ever have to defend your A.D.D.-ness to your parents, or do they agree? (My mom swears I can't be ADD just b/c I got good grades).

    2. What was the chicken doing when you spotted it?

    3. What do you do for a living, besides twittering and blogging.

    4. What's cooler: the British or the Australian accent?

  14. JJ (Lady Di) June 9, 2009 at 2:19 pm #

    >I'm interested in your ADD too. I was diagnosed as an adult after having trouble in college. I didn't have any trouble in the lower grades because it took weeks to go over the material – in college we were lucky if it took a day and with the fact that I couldn't study for more than 15 minutes I just couldn't keep up. It still amazes me that I love school, and I'm glad that I don't have the H part of it. I wonder if anyone else that knew me (besides my family) sees the ADD in me. (I drive my hubby crazy with my subject changing while talking btw.)

  15. katdish June 9, 2009 at 3:04 pm #

    >Wow, great questions – except for Peter.

    I think I'm going to split these up by topic. Many of you seem to be interested in ADD, and I really want to answer those questions as accurately as possible.

    And Annie, you are correct.

    JJ – Thanks for stopping by my blog again from Billy's. Hope you will come back again.

  16. Marni June 9, 2009 at 3:09 pm #

    >Do you cuss alot driving in Houston traffic? When I visit there, I cuss alot. Just wanted to know I'm not alone in my shame…

    Did you know that coffee or lo-carb Monster's have the same effect on ADD adults as meds can? That's why I'm a Monster junkie. And you?

    What movies can you recite verbatim?

    Would you like to join mine and SFL's club we'll have in Heaven one day? We're going to go around pantsing the disciples. (Okay, actually Stacy said they wear togas, so we can't pants them, so maybe we'll just roll their mansions). At any rate, are you in?

    I would be a Bradford Pear tree. Low maintenance to grow and keep healthy and no one expects anything out of you, so you aren't hassled. What would you be?

    How many "drunk in public" citations have you received?

    I think that's about it for now. I have to get back to work…boo!

  17. Tony C June 9, 2009 at 4:31 pm #

    >What TV character best depicts the real Katdish?

    BTW…I'm sorry I've not been around a lot lately, and I hope to do better…surely I do.

  18. Steph @Red Clay Diaries June 9, 2009 at 4:41 pm #

    >Wow! The chance to ask questions of the Great Katdish. (rubs hands together, mumbling to self)

    1. So we all know you're this amazing social media darling/Twitter Ho. I'm just wondering what brilliant person introduced you to Twitter. That person needs thanking. And cash.

    2. When are you gonna change the blog name? And will it be to Hey Look a Shiny Vampire? Or Hey Look a Monkey Butt?

    3. If you got offered a book deal, what would you write about?

    4. Do you think Peter P actually HAS a life, or does he make a career of being first commenter and commenting "First comment"?

    >Steph & Marni – I promise to answer all questions in detail, but for now, let me just say:


  20. The Homefront June 9, 2009 at 4:56 pm #

    >Oooo, this should be an interesting post!

    How do you find the time to do so much blogging and Twittering?

    Do you often find yourself Twitterpated?

    Which teen phenomenon is better: Twilight or Harry Potter, and why?

    In a fight who would win: Chuck Norris or Jet Li?

    How cool is Jack Nicholson?

    Why, oh, why did you leave Virginia for the wilds of Texas?

  21. Stacey June 9, 2009 at 8:01 pm #

    >What kind of books do you like to read and what's your favorite book ever?

    Also, if you could travel to anywhere, where would you go?

    And finally, what's your favorite Kool aid flavor?

  22. Billy Coffey June 9, 2009 at 8:45 pm #

    >You'd better be careful how you answer Homefront's Chuck Norris vs. Jet Li question. Very careful. Your honorary man card depends upon it.

  23. Annie K June 10, 2009 at 8:16 am #

    >What makes you cry?

  24. JML June 10, 2009 at 9:12 am #

    >HOly Crap! People asked good questions. I'm not good at this game, so I suppose I'll sort of go along Billy's train of thought and not only ponder about what you want out of life but also, what did you/do you want to be when you grow up? Did you ever go to school for anything? and would you please tell me where you hid the beer!

  25. God June 10, 2009 at 10:49 am #

    >Dear Katdish,

    Am I the 'famous person who reads your blog but never comments' you were referring to?



  26. Beth June 10, 2009 at 12:03 pm #

    >So where are all the answers??? Get your booty off the lake and come answer our silly questions.
