Welcome back to The Tonight Show I'm your host Chung Lao.

Confirmed Switch-Foot Fanatic.  Un-confirmed Knicks fan.  Read on.....

Posted on April 18, 2005


Chung Lao:  Hey Sharon, how are you?

Sharon:  Pretty good, thanks. Although I could be better if I didn’t have two major term papers yet to be written. At least I have MS Word open! (to do this interview, but lets not nit-pick.) 

Chung Lao:  New York.  New York.  The city of lights.  Any moving plans?

Sharon:  Funny you should ask. Actually, its not that funny. Yes, I would eventually like to try living somewhere different. Not necessarily somewhere quieter, just somewhere different. 

Chung Lao:  Tell us about your site, Peculiardisplay.com, and how you got into web design.  

Sharon:  My site is a medium through which I waste time and procrastinate. (Refer to question 1) There’s not much content, and the journal is pointless, but it gives me something to do.  Some people even seem to like it, at least that’s what I think the reason for them coming back frequently is. I actually started my site way back in 1999 because I was a fan of that tv show Angel and for those of you who don’t know, most of today’s personal sites started out because fans of the show Buffy (and in turn, Angel) wanted to have a way of communicating their thoughts and speculations about the storylines. 

Chung Lao:  What is your Social Security Number?

Sharon:  I’m actually an illegal alien, so I never got one. 

Chung Lao:  What do you think of IndaPhatFarm.com?

Sharon:  When Chris first told me about his site, I thought it was called IndiaPhatFarm (I still have reading problems to this day) and I thought it might have something to do with slave labor in Indian clothing factories. Today, I know its called InDaphatFarm, but I still don’t know what the heck its about. Just Kidding. Those factory worker kids are pretty cute. 

Chung Lao:  What is your fascination with the band Switch-foot all about?

Sharon:  Good music. Good down-to-earth Christian guys. And they let me make fun of them on their messageboard. 

Chung Lao:  Name some countries you want to visit/re-visit.

Sharon:  Easy one!  In order of importance: Australia, Ireland, Italy. I actually hope to relocate to Australia for some part of my life. Italy – the history of the Byzantine/ Roman Empire is my favorite. Ireland – I like their accents and their green grass. 

Chung Lao:  Tell us about the Tyrone Baxter incident.

Sharon:  So back in the day, my cousin Vinod lived in Jackson Heights. (This is pre-Little India days). My brothers and I visited them almost every weekend. Lets just say, older kids like to make the lives of younger kids a living nightmare. This one particular weekend we’re out in their backyard, which is more like an alley of garages behind the attached houses.  The road is purely made of gravel. We’re standing out there playing or whatever and suddenly I see some rocks falling off of the roof of the garage. Now, keep in mind I can’t be more than 8 or 9 years old. The rocks keep coming and I look to my brothers and Vinod and they’re all mystified like me.

Then Vinod screams out “Look, I see him on the roof!!! He’s throwing rocks at us!” And me, in all my fear and trembling cry out “Who?? Who is it?”  Vinod replies, “Tyrone Baxter!!!!” So of course, both of my brothers agree in unison with Vinod that they saw Tyrone too. Now, I can’t be the only loser that didn’t see him, so I’m like, “Yeah!!!! I see him!!! Throw them back at him!” Long story short, they pretend to see Tyrone scamper off behind the garages and we never see him again. I think it was honestly a few years later that Vinod admitted to me he was the one throwing gravel onto the roof so that it appeared to be falling off. Jerks! 

Chung Lao:  Where did you stand on the Terry Schiavo case?

Sharon:  Most of the time in my room, but usually I was sitting down in front of the tv, not standing. Oh, and I felt that the husband should have given guardianship to her parents if he didn’t want the burden of caring for her anymore. The guy went off and remarried and had kids. I understand it was 15 years of vegativeness but do the vows “Til death do us part” hold any true meaning anymore? Apparently not. Ultimately, I think the problem here is that every person needs a living will written up. Just saves the hassle of a slew of national court cases. 

Chung Lao:  What church do you attend?

Sharon:  My dad’s church – New York Bible Assembly of God. 

Chung Lao:  Are you proud to call yourself Vinod’s cousin?

Sharon:  I'm assuming he’ll be reading this. And since he pretty much got me into my MBA program, I will say yes. 

Chung Lao:  Name someone you admire and why.

Sharon:  The fact that three minutes have passed by since I started to answer this question and nobody’s name has popped into my head tells me that I probably don’t admire anyone.

Chung Lao:  Best place(s) to eat in Nueva York?

Sharon:  I do not think this question has an answer because there are too many good places. 

Chung Lao:  What is something you can’t stand in a person?

Sharon:  Conceit 

Chung Lao:  Why do you like Wendy’s side salads?

Sharon:  I see you conferred with Vinod before coming up with these interview questions. IT WAS ONE SALAD OK!?! I had a big lunch and wasn’t that hungry for dinner!!! SUE ME.

Chung Lao:  What is wrong with the NY Knicks?

Sharon:  When have they ever been right? 

Chung Lao:  Name a place you would never want to live, and why.

Sharon:  Anywhere with snakes. I don’t think I need to explain. 

Chung Lao:  Ok, it’s Game 7 of the 2006 World Series, Yanks are down by 2 to the Red Sox.  Jeter just went down with a torn cheek muscle.  Joe Torre’s not going out like a chump though.  He calls in his secret weapon, Sharon Titus!  What’s the game plan? 

Sharon:  I'm guessing that in the offseason, baseball went Co-Ed? Good stuff. Um…play little ball. Bunt, walk, steal. Moon Derek lowe. Call INS on David Ortiz. Do whatever it takes to tie the game and win it in the 37th inning. 

Chung Lao:  Lastly, leave us with a parting thought.

Sharon:  “My dad says if  you don’t have anything nice to say, you shouldn’t say anything at all. But my dad’s not here. YOU’RE A WEENIE!!!!!”  Ooh parting THOUGHT. I thought it said parting SHOT. Oh well.

Chung Lao:  Sharon, Thangu.  Next up on The Tonight Show is Mathai C Ittycherian.

  Now if you'll excuse me, I have a factory to run.
