1. Name 5 things you did more of before social networking (facebook, myspace, twitter, etc.)?
ANS: Proof-read, write full sentences, use proper punctuation. I never was much of a TV-watcher so I still probably watch as much TV. I know I listen to my CDs a lot less. It is easier to play mp3s on my laptop; although the sound is so inferior. In my free time, I spend less time lounging on my deck. Now I'm on the laptop instead. I could take the laptop outside but the screen becomes hard to see because of the reflection from the sky and the trees. Not lounging on the deck is a shame really because that used to give me soooo much joy.
2. Your house is on fire, what do you grab as you run out?
ANS: My purse, my mobile phone, car keys...maybe my laptop if it is near one of the other two items as I run out the door.
3. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
ANS: Definitely a morning person
a. What time did you go to bed last night? 11 pm. I was beat because I went to bed at 4 am the day before.
b. What time did you wake up today? 5:45 am
4. A kid comes up to you and kicks you in the shin, what do you do?
ANS: Kick him right back! Okay that's my initial reaction of what I'd like to do. I'd yell, "What the fuck! Where's your parents you snotty little brat!" Okay, okay; not that either.
I'm sure I'd be stunned, and furious. And ask, "What's your problem? Why did you kick me? Maybe I should kick you back. Let's go find your parents." If parents were in earshot or saw what had happened, I'd turn to them and say, "Oh, my neck, my neck. I think I'm gonna need surgery. I'm calling my lawyer. I hope you have a big bank account cuz I'm gonna take you for all you've got!" << (that's the American way :D )
In reality, I'd do something calm and sensible but definitely talk the parents. I'm good at handling conflict. I used to do it for a living...and LOVED it.
5. What three things do you never leave the house without?
ANS: House keys, my purse, and usually my mobile but sometimes I forget that. Sometimes I forget my brain too, but that a story for another time.
Bonus: Name a place that you visited last week that you've never visited before. Briefly tell us about the visit.
ANS: An olive oil and vinegar emporium where the most delicious infusions are on tap! Yup! on tap... to savor. I had never heard of such. It was a lovely lovely place. I didn't want to leave. I wanted to get drunk on lavender infused vinegar (or was it the ripe peach white infused vinegar?) and have KinkyGent pour Persian Lime olive oil (or tuscan herb, I loved 'em all) all over my body and lick it off. If you have an olive oil and vinegar bar near you GO! It's a real treat. The stuff is good in foods, on foods, on ice cream, with bread...whatever you can imagine.
