What was your worst travel experience ever, and why?

Got 2 bad ones. First one was going to Basic Training. We are coming from Portland, OR and have to make a stop in Chicago to go to Louisville, Kentucky. We get into Chicago 20 minutes early and we have enough time to get to our connecting flight. When we actually go look at the board, the flight's been delayed a few hours due to thunderstorms. We call the travel company and tell them we may not make it out for a few hours and they tell us to go eat and don't get into trouble. We do that and then go to the gate and find out the flight's been delayed further. We all agree to meet up for the flight and run off to our own devices. I head to the Fox Sports Bar and it's just packed. I want just a soda and piece of cheesecake to help me relax. The place is just not moving for service. Some kind people help me out and get the waiter to get my food, but I was already soured to the experience. I go back to the gate and load up on the plane. I am sitting there for a couple hours, hoping to make my flight over to Louisville, but it ends up getting canceled. We try to get a hotel to stay at for the night, but they were all booked since the military likes hoping we will make it to our destination. I end up passing out for an hour in a terminal and being awaken by one of guys. We were moved to an area with cots and a lot of lights. I don't sleep with a lot of light so I stayed up the rest of the night and hope on 2 flights to Louisville, one stop being in West Virginia or somewhere. I don't remember since I was dead tired. We make it to Louisville, nonetheless but still, a lot of this could have been avoided.

The second trip was on my way to Fort Sill, OK for training. I make it to Oklahoma City, no problem, but the bus driver was late to pick us up and ends up taking us all the way to Lawton, a side town of Ft. Sill, but not where we were supposed to be. We end up being stuck there for hours until I call up the military people and explain the situation to them. They send someone to pick us up and we get to the base, but then we only had a couple hours til we had to wake up and get ready for processing into Ft. Sill.

Do you think a marriage license should have a renewal or expiration date, just like a driver's license?


With the amount of divorces going on, it should. Seriously, the til do us part line in the vows is totally dead to most people now.

What is the worst movie you've ever seen? Did you sit through it or walk out? What made it so dreadful?

Black Knight with Martin Lawerance and I did walk out. The plot, the comedy, the entire movie sucked.

If a loved one got diagnosed with a painful, terminal illness and asked you to help them terminate their life before they deteriorated, would you do it? If so, would you want to be present during their last moments?

I would do it, knowing I'd end their pain and suffering. I had to watch family and friends go down the slow and painful path. I don't want to watch them suffer like that.

Well, as all of my friends know, I got a tattoo before in honor of my dad. On Friday, I continued the piece as I had the San Francisco Giants logo put on my arm with it looking like it was stitched into it.

Our holiday gift to you: the question submitted most often to Writer's Block—if you could have a superpower, what would it be and how would you use it?


I'd want metamorphism so I change my shape and appearance. I'd imagine doing some trouble but I'd try and be as good as possible.

If you were a superstar of professional wrestling, what would your wrestling name be? And what finishing move would you use to get to Wrestlemania?


Well, my wrestling name would be Josh "The Josh" Dionio and my finisher would be the C.F.F. aka the Nightmare on Helms Street/ Vertibreaker.

Depression. I know I suffer from it, but normally I have it under control. Today I can't. Today would have been my father's 64th birthday. I should be doing something to get my mind off of it, but no, I'm stuck in Wisconsin, unable to drink, unable to be by myself, thinking about him. For that, my emotions are very bad. I tried to talk to someone earlier but she wouldn't take time away from a game to listen. I didn't help the situation by being an ass, but I'm not stable when depressed. Then again, is anyone? I will apologize to her sometime later, but I doubt she'll be as forgiving. I just wish I wasn't here and wasn't sober to have to think about it.

What were you doing on September 11th, 2001? How do the events of that day hold meaning for you now?


Well, I was in Fort Sill, Oklahoma doing training for my military job specialty. I was in a class when the instructors started talking about it when I was in the break room. At first, I couldn't believe it. Then as I saw the videos, I still was in disbelief. It looked like a movie was being filmed. When I finally got a grip and saw that it was real, I was angry that it happened, but then the drill sargaents reminded us it was our duty to go kick ass and take names. I look at the day as a day of memorial and a reminder that we can't trust everyone we treaty with and help.
