What to be or what not to be...too many questions

I haven’t really been inspired to write a blog recently. I am not sure of the reason. I guess I could chalk it up to semester end; it is busy; I am exhausted; I haven’t had time. All those sound reasonable, but they are also the same ‘excuses’ I use for everything. This somehow, to me anyway, makes them less sound.

So, why have I not been posting. I still haven’t figured that out. Along with the rest of my life, I am in a “ What am I doing?” state. I get into those quite often. This of course goes with the hand in hand “What do I want to do?” state. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up …go figure.

I know this questioning part is because I have had to deal with management all week (hence the exhaustion). It would be a normal endeavour if it weren’t like banging your head up against a brick wall (I can show you the pattern on my forehead). I know I shouldn’t allow that to alter me from the path I am on, but it raises those inklings of if I am doing what I really want to be doing. I don’t think I am easily persuaded to change if I am decided on something. Some even say I am stubborn. I can’t see it… :0)

So, back to not posting. Perhaps I am in a cerebral state, and I often am, that doesn’t register to the fingers. I had some wonderful thoughts just as I was slumbering a few nights ago and thought, “Oh that is pretty good. I will remember that for the morning.” Well, we all know that didn’t happen. It was something about envy…It related to another part of the week. That is all I can recall.

Back to corrections….

tag de Jour

I have been tagged by Turtle Guy and he has been patient to hear my answers. I hope they are not to flippent. I just tell em like I sees em!

1: Black and White or Color; how do you prefer your movies?

Both. I love the classics and colour. It depends if it is good or Hollywood garbage. That is the more important question. NO remastered… it looks too fake to me.

2: What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death?

Ummm- money, anything to do with money. Taxes,finance, investingggggg zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz huh! what ! oh, sorry dozed off.

3: MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: what is your favorite medium for prerecorded music?

ALL!!! Give me all of it. Nothing like a good old fashioned vinyl. For inexpensive media give me MP3 and some CD. For ease of play, CD all the way. Tapes are great for listening in cars and mixing different music (Cds for this too). As long as it has music, it is all good!

4: You are handed one first class trip plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run?

I would be gone, gone, gone. I would also say this is an easy loophole to get around. I can’t tell them where I am going, but it doesn’t mean I can’t come back. So there. I would spend the money have a good time and come back. Maybe I will meet Billy Idol in first class. Mmmm that would be fun.

5: Seriously, what do you consider the world's most pressing issue now?

Pressing I think that is a funny word. Sounds like laundry. I don’t do pressing. Issues, I got lots of those I can talk about. There are just too many. Famine, hate, torture, strife, war, dead children, poverty… OK I am depressed now. Lets move on.

6: How would you rectify the world's most pressing issue?

No such thing. Not unless we are not humans anymore. Human nature! That is the problem…not enough good to balance out the power of the bad.

7: You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be?

I don’t know about this one. I may come back and change this. I thought and thought about what I would change. I have to honestly say that everything has given me the perspective and thoughts of today. I wouldn’t be who I am if they wouldn’t have happened. However, if it was like those movies where people get into an accident and lose their memory for awhile and become a better person, I might consider that. Wait …the accident part isn’t so fun.

8: You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be?

No way!! I am not messing with history. It was as it was the first time, bad and some good. Plus everthing is connected. If I change one thing, that has to somehow domino into another event. No way!!! Uhuh!! We have enough problems with the history we are creating today (see question 5).

9: A night at the opera, or a night at the Grand Ole Opry: which do you choose?

I have to clarify, is there a female suprano singing ? Because I can’t sit through that!!! I like the opera otherwise. Can’t say I would choose the Opry off hand, but if there was someone good on stage, why not? Who is paying by the way? Can’t I have both? I would need to be taken out to dinner….hahahahahahhahahhahah ahhhh good one…no really who is paying?
Wait am I going alone? OK then uh that’s fine. I would go to the opera one night and then to the Opry when there was someone good… What restaurants are around there?

10: What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you'd like to solve?

You mean I could be Poirot, or Sherlock Holmes ( without the Laudanum addiction please). I don’t know if I want to do this. Most of the solved crimes are still mysteries to me because I can’t figure out how these people could be so devoide of feelings. That is the bigger mystery. Why do they do it in the first place? Nope nothing else is coming to me.

11: One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal?

JRR Tolkien would be top on the list. Although there are several others, like Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen, Dostoyofsky, Plato, Copernicus, Ellis Peters, Agatha Christie, the list goes on. I would serve fowl with wild rice and root vegetables and eat it in the Medevil way. We would rip it apart with our hands and eat with gusto. This is brain food. Then we would sit by the fire and have sherry and discuss amongst ourselves. Things, great things, great thoughts, great ideas, points of view.

12: You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky - what's the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact?

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA That’s funny… I was trying to be serious about this one, but I just can’t. I don’t think I am an atheist, but I have never not done something because I thought I was going to heaven. I was damned a long time ago, so I have been told. So, I don’t think I can divulge the immoral act on this blog site. Well, actually there is more than one, but it is not the platform for venting such things…hehehehehe. No, it doesn’t have to do with a platform. Move on…
