It’s been another week of me watching perhaps too much past television shows. The highlight of this week’s list was probably re-watching the 1st season of ‘The Mole’. It’s the best and most intelligent reality show in my opinion. You guys should watch it sometime.
Also, I’m a huge nerd. But you all already knew that. Why did I feel the need to say it again? Oh, just because I randomly decided to stay up late (not that new of a revelation really) to watch/reread Hamlet (NOT the Mel Gibson version) and look at some analyses of the play. And I had fun doing it (the fact that David Tennant was recently in an adaptation may or may not have had something to do with it). I admit I wasn’t the biggest fan of the play before *coughblamemelgibsoncough* and honestly it’s still far from my favorite, but I did find it more interesting the second time through.
Speaking of being a nerd, I think I’ll share something cool and random I learned this week. I think Rachael may enjoy it since it involves shoving a cat somewhere it doesn’t want to go. Did you know if you put a Siamese cat in the refrigerator it’ll turn completely dark brown/black? As you know the extremities of these cats (tail, feet, face, ears) are dark brown/black while the rest of it is creamy or white.
I’ll change from something random…..to something else random. I’ve had this rock in my room for years. It’s pretty big – about the size of two fists. I picked it up from the sinkhole down the street from my house in elementary school because we had this project where we were supposed to bring different looking rocks in to class in order to classify and learn about different rock types…or something. It was a long time ago. Anyway, when we were done with the project I took the rock home. I thought it kinda looked like a T-rex head, so I helped it along a little:
Ok, there hasn’t been a point in any of this blog, so I’ll just move on to thievery. Continuing Anna Beth’s theme, I’m also going to take over question Tuesday (thanks for the questions AB).
If you were a superhero, would you want a sidekick? Why or why not?
I don’t think I would want a sidekick. It’s not that I’d want to be alone or anything. The groups of superheroes like the Justice League or the Avengers are pretty cool. But I don’t particularly like sidekicks. I suppose they could be helpful, but they’re also a bit of a liability. And not as cool. It’s actually a little unfair to them. If they’re out saving people, why would they want to be demoted to ‘sidekick’ instead of trying to be a superhero themselves?
Why do things that are bad for you taste better?
Would you rather have an unlimited supply of bread and books, or an unlimited supply of money but you couldn't spend it on bread or books?
Does the second option mean I can still have bread and books but that I just can’t use my unlimited money to buy them? If that’s the case, then I would definitely pick the second option. If not, I guess the first option.
Of all the places you applied for a summer job, which are you most hoping will hire you (aside from the hospital--actually paid ones, I mean)?
What's the most recent dream you remember having?
Um, I haven’t remembered many of my dreams recently. The most recent I can remember anything about involved me shattering the screen of my phone, but I don’t remember any other part of the dream though I know there was more to it. The only reason I remember that is because I woke up thinking it had actually happened. Sorry this isn’t very thrilling of an answer.
Would you be willing to murder an innocent person if it would 'somehow' end all hunger in the world?
Would you be willing to give up half of what you now own (randomly selected) for a pill that would permanently change you so that one hour of sleep each day would fully refresh you?
No. I think I’m already used to functioning on the occasional lack of sleep. And just because I’m awake doesn’t mean I’d be more productive. Having the pill would be nice, but not knowing what of my stuff I’d be trading for it doesn’t seem worth it.
If you could have free, unlimited service for five years from an extremely good cook, chauffeur, or masseuse, which would you choose?
Masseuse! I suppose it’d be nice to not have to pay for my meals, but massages feels so good! And I can drive myself.
Would you accept $1,000,000 in U.S. dollars (or the equivalent in whatever currency) to leave your country and never set foot in it again?
Hmmmm….This is the hardest question I think. I like living in the US. It’s quite hard to think of actually living, not just visiting, another country. But it would be nice to have that money to both travel everywhere I’ve wanted to go and then hopefully have some left over to set myself up in another country. But it’d be harder to see you all and other people that are still living in the US. So, I guess my answer is no. (but perhaps if the amount of money was significantly raised?...)
And that’s the end of questions for me.
Now I have a mini-project (sort of) for you all! Judge a book by its cover literally (or google stuff about the plot or whatever). Help me decide what I should read next. You can pick from the pictures below, some of which are books I’ve had for years but never got around to actually reading. Or if you have a better suggestion go ahead and tell me that instead.
