The fives are back and are as meaningless as ever...
1. Yesterday, I was interviewed for the first time since I won Best Citizenship in high school and was interviewed for the video yearbook. After doing yesterday’s interview, I learned that I enjoy being interviewed, so now I have new life goal: become famous so people will interview me. The only problem is I’m not very opinionated, so my interviews may be a tad dull. But that just means the interviewer has to be on top of their game to keep the interview going. So, really I am doing everyone a favor by improving all interviewers overall skill set, thus ultimately making interviews everywhere more enjoyable. You’re welcome. If anybody wants to interview me about anything leave a comment or email me. We can discuss, for example, my uncanny ability to use the word “interview” far more than is actually necessary.
2. I'm trying the Twitter (@jscottmoore). I signed up a long time ago, but I only have like 12 followers and I think 50% of them are spammers. I would delete the spammers, but then I would only have 6 followers. That is just sad. I don't know if I only have 12(6) followers because I don't tweet often or if don’t tweet often because I only have 12(6) followers. It's your classic chicken versus egg type of scenario. Which came first, I mean. Not a chicken versus an egg in some sort of death match. Clearly the chicken would win that. An egg is pretty defenseless. Plus, Rocky trained to fight Carl Weathers by chasing a chicken around in a back alley, so that tells you everything you need to know about chickens. Chickens are the domesticated fowl version of Carl Weathers. This whole paragraph is probably why I only have 12(6) Twitter followers.
3. The other day I was watching an old 30 Rock rerun and Tracy Jordan said this line: “I want to hold a mirror up to society and then win a world record for biggest mirror." It reminded me of the time when I was 9 and the Scholastic Book Fair came to our school’s library. Along with my usual purchases of a set of Mad Libs and new Lamborghini poster, I bought a Guinness Book of World Records. I got home and began thumbing threw it. I loved everything about it, from the dedication and drive it took from all those who filled its esteemed pages to the pictures of that Indian dude with the long curly fingernails and the world’s largest twins on their motorcycles. As I read, visions of grandeur began popping into my head and I came up with the idea of being in the Guinness Book of World Records for owning the most Guinness Book of World Records books. Unfortunately, I fell short of my goal and only ended up with three – years 1990, 1991, and 1993. I think I ran out of money while at the book fair in ’92. Must’ve been a sale on Mad Libs.
5. I found a website that runs a The Office fantasy game. It’s similar to fantasy football where you pick a roster of 3 characters each week and get points for things your characters do, like being in a talking head or saying “That’s what she said.” I thought it might be fun and am considering setting up a The Moore You Know league in honor of the season premier next Thursday. The only thing is I didn’t know if my little corner of the internet is big enough to generate enough interest. So, I am setting up a pole. Let's see if enough people will participate. If so, I say lets do this thing.

Michael: For those of you who are curious, the world record is 54 and one half hot dogs. Wow! And you know what? I personally have cooked up enough so each and every one of you could break that record. So shoot for the stars, OK?
