TMI Tuesday: October 25, 2011

Not related.

TMI Tuesday random questions

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?

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?

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.

My animals and kids would be the things I would check for in a fire.. everything else could be replaced..Ohh I have never heard of an olive oil and vinegar bar... sounds like fun

Batteries Not Included said...

#1 "Proof-read, write full sentences, use proper punctuation" That is so very true.

And that oil and vinegar emporium sounds about close to heaven for me. I've been batting the idea around of bottling some of my own for personal use. I've collected quite a few recipes I've been itching to try out.

I was sorry to see that you haven't posted an introductory entry to TMI Tuesday at The Pleasure Principle this week, but your answers are extra excellent so that makes up for it. We especially liked the various reactions you describe in #4, as they all made us laugh (and were very relatable), especially your mention of suing the parents as "the American way". Too true.

And your bonus answer intrigued us when we saw mention of it on Twitter and at the TMI Tuesday blog. We absolutely love olive oil (vinegar too), usually on bread prior to enjoying a sumptuous Italian repast. I'm suddenly craving this very thing, and am thinking of walking the baby to a nearby market for a loaf of Italian bread; we've already got some good olive oil on hand.


Hedone said...

@angel shrout: Oh yes! Save all living beings first, but after that what do you grab?

@Batteries Not Included: I encourage you to make your own infused olive oil and vinegars, then send me a bottle or two :)

@Jack and Jill: Sorry to disappoint by not having a "lead in". I got so busy. I've made it up to you...check it out.

Glad that you enjoyed my TMI Tuesday.

1- I like your list here.

4 - More power to the American way. ;-)

Bonus: Great idea for KG to pour the oil over your body and lick it off. I'm going to check the store site to see if they ship out orders. That would be awesome.

You keep damned late hours for a morning person, can I just mention?

(oh, wait. I'm the nightowl who gets up at 5:45 every morning... NEVERMIND!)


heelsnstocking said...

As ever love your depth of personality that shows through. As for the oil and vinegar shop... We have one here and I adore it too! I can spend hours tasting, choosing, planning meals using new flavours... But wouldn't you rather come to my new place with me? :)

Hedone said...

@HnS: I'd follow you anywhere ;-)
