1. On Thursday we pause to remember a dark day in history-9/11. Will you mark it in some special way? No.
2. Do you ever/still...listen to an actual radio? Watch a videotape (VCR)? Look up a number in a phonebook? Refer to a paper map while traveling? Set an alarm on an alarm clock as opposed to your phone? Yes. Sometimes because our home videos have yet to be transposed. No. No. No--wait, does the television count? I use it to wake up to the weather, which is still hot.
3. Is it ever a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don't know? I'd almost rather do it with strangers than with a few people I do know. I'm so private about both that I tend not to share either with many people. There are a select few who know my true views on both topics. And they love me anyway. :)
4. What's a dish you haven't eaten all summer, but come September find yourself craving? Have you made it yet this month? Well, I would mention soups and chili and stews but NOT in September because it's still too dang hot to do that kind of cooking. I would also mention desserts with pumpkin and apples and the winter squashes but, it's too dang hot. So ask me again in October. :)
5. What's something you know nothing about? That's one LONG list. The more I learn, the more I realize I know very little about anything. As soon as I think I have a handle on something, I realize I'm wrong. However, if I have to pick only one thing, I'll go with physics. I have no idea what the hell they are talking about and it hurts my head to even attempt to think about it.
6. September is Classical Music Month. Do you like classical music? If so, what's your favorite piece? I LOVE classical music. I listen to it daily. When Tucker is alone at home, we put the classical music channel on the television for him. I don't have a favorite piece. I just love nearly all of it. I find classical music can evoke a myriad of emotions from me from joy to sorrow. It's amazing and the composers fascinate me.
7. What's the oldest thing you own? My brain. Haha! Probably my great-grandmother's sideboard.
8. Insert your own random thought here. For two cents, I'd walk away from everything right now. The job, the house...and start over somewhere that is quiet and peaceful and where there is no technology. Or at least no push towards technology. I feel as though there are some things technology related are, now don't faint or go all crazy on me, are unnecessary. That they are being developed just because they can not because we need them or because they will help us or make our lives better. Some of these developments are helpful but I don't see where any of it has solved any problems such as violence or homelessness or poverty or child abuse or animal cruelty and the like. But I do see where a lot of it is fattening the pockets of those supporting big corporations such as Monsanto which is trying it's best to bleed us of every penny before they finally kill us. But some of these people support cancer research you say? Right. Did you know that the pharmaceutical companies sponsor these charities? And that the money goes right back to them for drugs that we then, again, pay for? Technology is great. Except when it isn't. (Well, that turned into a rambling rant, didn't it?)
Have a great rest of the week, y'all!
