Below is my response to Anna’s interview:

1. You have written a hit musical. How do you keep fame from going into your head without killing yourself?
There’s a little side story to this. The random question in my blogger profile asked “How do you keep fame from going to your head?” and I answered “I will kill myself.” So, in response to this question, since I am not allowed to kill myself, I’ll just have to kill everybody else instead.

2. What is your take on this quote by Steinbeck (I think): “I will get back at him the cruellest way I know how. I will forget it.”
I quoted once that “Gratitude is a burden and revenge is a pleasure.” He definitely adheres to it.

3. Script in 3-4 lines the funniest, weirdest/most dramatic (take your pick) “stop the wedding scene” you can imagine.
Girly and her father walk down the aisle when an irritating high-pitched voice screams from behind “Stop the wedding! Stop the wedding!”

Whispers abound the church about this man. The priest asks “Isn’t there a time for this? I’m not gonna get paid until I finish the exercise.”

The bride’s father rushes to the man and asks, “Why are you doing this?”

The man leans to the bride’s father and whispers to him “I’m pregnant” and he runs away with the groom.

4. Can one philosophically harass another? Give an example.
Here’s an exerpt of my talk with Demitrios (my ex-boss and the nemesis in The Death of Peter Pan) on November 4, 2005.
Hey Paolo, It’s you birthday.
Thank you, Demitrios.
What do you want for your birthday?
I want to be off.

5. You have just won the Palanca for “philosophicalized writing” category. Draft a brief acceptance speech using as many of your invented words as possible.
For an immemorable person who started by cultivating blogarchy …this great body has successfully helped bring my remarkability up with this award. And surely, I have successfully helped bring yours down with my great body. Thank you for this award. Karir!
