Thursday Thirteen #12 — More about Mitchell

Thirteen More Things about
Mitchell Voss

(header by The Tour Manager; picture from Guitar World)

We had such a good time last week talking about Mitchell, and he is one of my favorite characters, so I thought I’d bring you a bit more about him.

After all, my meme contest is still ongoing for a few more days and while I’ve started to draw up some of the awards, there’s still room for your entry. Get in on the fun and win yourself some books!

Thirteen More Things about Mitchell:

1. Boxers or briefs? Thanks to Kerri, boxer briefs. Before that, K-Mart specials to swap with the girls.

2. Favorite childhood birthday gift: One of those wooden mazes with the unstable surface that you had to navigate the marble through

3. Favorite adult birthday gift: Amy gave him one of those horrible Troll dolls as a gag. It now lives in his wardrobe case and rules the roost in there.

4. Toy he couldn’t be separated from: a stuffed dog that he named Williams

5. Top of his game batting average: .295

6. First sentence: Amy hurt me!

7. Favorite bachelor food aside from beer: orange juice

8. Favorite unit of study in school: Astronomy

9. First thing he learned how to cook: hamburgers. On the grill, of course

10. What he was shopping for when he met Kerri: tomatoes

11. How he knew his parents approved of his final career choice: Sonya gave him a silver dragon ring that he never takes the stage without.

12. First thing he bought with ShapeShifter money: a custom Les Paul.

13. Worst job he ever had: helping haul sets around Riverview’s flailing community access TV station.

    He was shopping for tomatoes when he met Kerri? Solely tomatoes? Is there a short story behind this? Tomatoes are probably the last thing I’d go buy. 🙂
