Deep Thoughts with Jerry #5

I think this is my favorite "deep thoughts" post of Jerry's yet--it shows a bit more of his personality. When we first met, the first thing that drew me to him was--well, aside from his "punk" look at the time, haha--was his humor. He's always been funny and can (almost) always make me laugh. As he gets older, his dad jokes get worse and he just laughs harder at them, but I guess that's just a sign of age ;)

Anyway, here are some deep thoughts from Jerry this week...

If you’re at trivia night, what would category would you know most about?

Either Friends or Star Wars trivia. Katie always tells people I know the most random bits of trivia. I pay attention to the most mundane details of everything. However, I've seen Friends and Star Wars billions of times. You know what? Add the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to that as well. The MCU consists of 29 full-length films with a handful of shows sprinkled in there to appease us fans until a new movie comes out. I've rewatched all these movies, in order, too many times to count.

[Katie here: Fun fact--I hate Star Wars and I didn't even know MCU was a thing until just now! But Jerry is right about knowing his trivia. If 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' was still a thing, Jerry would definitely be my phone-a-friend lifeline.]

What’s an album you recommend that has no bad songs?

S.C.I.E.N.C.E. by Incubus. There's a funk, nu metal feel to the entire album and it's not overbearingly rock. It's one of my favorite albums of all time. It's followed closely ​by Alice In Chains' Unplugged album. I'm kind of a music nut, and I can think of so many more. However, I must say, my most favorite albums are from the mid-to-late 90's... maybe early 2000's. And they're all rock. 

Would you rather speak all languages or be able to talk with animals?

Such a random question with a not-so-easy answer. I would love to talk to animals. I could yell at the raccoons and they would understand me when I tell them to get off my deck or else. The squirrels will be able to tell me which nut they might like... some of them can be picky. When Estelle is meowing all over the house she can tell me what she's bitching about. So I guess I'd rather be able to talk to animals.

What celebrity do most people say you look like?

People are always confusing me with Chris Hemsworth. I don't see it, but maybe they're right. My mom always used to tell me I was the most handsome boy. And if that boy grew to be a man, that man would look like Chris Hemsworth. See? It's uncanny.

What’s the last thing you completed that you’re proud of?

I don't know if it counts, but, I made a vegan recipe the other night and Katie really seemed to like it. It was a creamy spinach gnocchi and it was delicious. I have a tendency to get heavy handed with some ingredients like garlic and garlic. And sometimes, I add too much garlic. Katie always jokes that I just like throwing my touch into everything, she even said that I think I'm Emeril or something. LOL. However, I followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out really good.

[Katie here: For the record, I *love* garlic. Jerry just doesn't understand that a little goes a long way. Also, that garlic powder and garlic salt are NOT the same thing, haha)

Would you rather be reincarnated as a cat or a dog?

​Easiest question yet... I would be a cat. I always tell Katie that. Hell, the other day I asked her if sometimes she wishes she was a cat so she can play with Duck AS a cat. She said no. But, I know deep down, she would. And so would I. Cats have the best life. It's like all the novelty shirts say, they do what they want.

What is the best romantic comedy?

You've Got Mail. Hands down. I can watch this movie over and over and over again. It's got to be the chemistry between Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. There's humor, nothing crude, and they're romance. If you haven't seen this movie I would highly suggest you stop by your local Blockbuster and rent it tonight. You won't regret it.

What is your go-to TV show to watch at night?

Friends. Always. Friends. 


  1. You are a good man, Jerry. Thanks for the guest post!

  2. A great one. Love these Jerry posts.

  3. I love You've Got Mail, too. I will also admit that I didn't know the MCU was a thing either, I knew there were a lot of movies but I don't think I've seen any.


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
