Quick Hit: Speechless

I… the…. wha … I, I just don’t know what to say.

I just spent the drive home from Local U. listening to Terry Gross interview a total fucking whackadoodle.

Honestly, WHY do we give these people ANY kind of respectful attention?!

Monday Meme

Boosted, as has become my habit, from Kwizgiver.  Thanks, Honey!
1. Can you cook?   Like a BOSS.

2. What was your dream growing up?   I’m stealing Kwizgiver’s answer here and saying “to be happy.”  I never had any expectation of being so, but that was my dream.

3. What talent do you wish you had? I wish I could sing… or play the guitar… or do both at the same time.  Of course, I don’t wish these things enough to go out and work for them, so take that as you will.

4. Favorite place?   My house, with Mr. Chili in attendance.

5. Favorite vegetable   I’m fond of pea pods, green beans, spinach (especially in salads), cucumbers, and squash.

6. What was the last book you read.  I’m at about the midpoint of A Lesson Before Dying.

7. What zodiac sign are you?   Capricorn, and most of the characteristics of the sign are applicable to me.

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?  No tattoos: four ear piercings, two in each ear.

9. Worst Habit?   Taking things too personally.

10. Do you personally know anybody on Blog?   I don’t know what that means.  I personally know a lot of the bloggers I follow (and I’d love to meet a few more in person) but I don’t think that’s what this question is asking..

11. What is your favorite sport?   I love to watch football.

12. Negative or Optimistic attitude?   I am an optimist with realist leanings.  Does that make sense?

13. What would you do if you were stuck in an lift with someone of the opposite sex?   Strike up a conversation, probably.

14. Worst thing to ever happen to you?   Being born to people who had no idea how to be parents.

15. Tell me one weird fact about you:   I count stairs as I climb or descend them.

16. Do you have any pets?   One geriatric cat, whom we love dearly despite his getting louder and louder and his inability to tell when it’s way too fucking early in the morning to start yelling.

17. Do you know how to do the macarena?   Yes, but it’s not a skill I flaunt.

18. Is the sun shining where you are now?   Ugh.  No; it’s rainy and gray and just this side of chilly, and NOAA tells me it’s going to remain thus until at least Wednesday.

19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary?   Depends.

20. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?   I’ve been obsessing about the crease between my eyebrows for a while now.  I need to accept it, but it bugs me when I catch sight of it in my rear-view.

21. Would you be my good angel or bad angel?  I’m an atheist, so neither.  I think my nature leans heavily toward the good, however, with a tiny sliver of mischievous troublemaker, just to keep things interesting.

22. What color eyes do you have?  brownish, greenish hazel

23. Ever been married?   Yup.

24. Bottle or Draft?  Neither.  I dislike beer.

25. If you won £10,000 today, what would you do with it?   GOOD question.  I’m starting to get genuinely nervous about our financial markets, so the answer may be “bury it in Mason jars in the back yard.”

26. What kind of bubble gum do you prefer to chew?   Sugarless.

27. What’s your favorite bar to hang at? (asshole)  I don’t have a favorite bar; drinking isn’t a pastime for me

28. Do you believe in ghosts?   Not per se.  I believe that there’s something unique that animates these hunks of meat we walk around in, and I believe that it exists separate of it, but I’m still waiting for more evidence.

29. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?   Blogging.  Reading.  Cooking.

30. Do you swear a lot?   Fuck, yeah.

31. Biggest pet peeve?  The enthusiastically closed-minded.

32. In one word, how would you describe yourself?   Generous

33. In two words, how would you describe yourself?  Kind and inquisitive.
