Here are my respective answers to Ron's questions:
1)My fav'rite dog that I know "personally" is prob'ly my dog, Bart. My fav'rite dog that I do not know "personally" is hard to say...I'm sure a lot of the dogs that I don't know "personally" are really Neat-Ø (e.g. Santa's Little Helper, Scooby-Doo, Astro from The Jetsons, Tripod from Trapped in Paradise, Odie, Rowolf(sp?) of the Muppets, Citizen Dog, Barney from Gremlins, Dogbert, Snoopy, Einstein and Copernicus from the Back to the Future trilogy, et c.).
2)This question's kinda like "Who is your least favorite band?" If the person annoys me, I'm not going to spend any energy concentrating on him or her. However, in some cases, I suppose it's necessary. In this light, I'll answer with "my mother."
3)I don't think of "this."
4)I do not enjoy cheese cake much. Sometimes, I'll take the Sir Edmund Hillary approach to it and eat it if it is there, but there are so many things that are much more worth eating.
5)I could stand it. I like mustard. I don't care much for getting all dirty and messy, though, so I'll prob'ly never bother to find out what it's really like.
6)I can't think of any right now; that is, if there are any. I tend to pronounce words the way I best know how within the American English tradition. This is America, after all. Since this question was about speaking, I'll not answer the question regarding how I spell certain things incorrectly, though.
8)I imagine it as an old, much-used and much-loved, stuffed Teddy Bear. Like in that goofy rhyme, "Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't Fuzzy. Was he?"
9)I don't think of words as "beautiful" or "ugly" on an individual scale, words can and do only have aesthetic when in coherent groups, such as poems and stories. Furthermore, "Crystal" is my sister's name, so I wouldn't put a "beautiful" or "ugly" tag with it anyway; it's just my sister.
Kind of a good idea you had here, Ron. That is all.
