It's Always Ladies Night At The Four Questions

It's always Happy Hour, too.

Q. What is Dave wearing?
A. Dave's wearing tan pants and a green polo shirt. It's casual Tuesday.

Q. How does Dave feel today?
A. Dave feels like an underdog, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. He has been listening to "The Underdog" by Spoon, which is a rallying cry for underdogs everywhere. Actually, it's more of a warning to those who would underestimate the underdogs. Here's the chorus: "You got no time for the messenger, / Got no regard for the thing that you don't understand, / You got no fear of the underdog, / That's why you will not survive!"

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave's mood today?
A. Dave knows that, in life, everyone is occasionally a windshield and occasionally a bug. He just wishes he got to be the windshield more often. (Cf. Dire Straits, "The Bug")

Q. So, what should we be listening to -- "The Bug" or "The Underdog"?
A. Dave recommends listening to them both. While you're at it, check out Bruce Springsteen's "Radio Nowhere;" KT Tunstall's "Saving My Face;" and, James Blunt's "1973." They're all at the top of Dave's iPod playlist right now. So is "The Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stefani, but that's kind of embarrassing for Dave to admit, so he's not telling anyone.
