I hate not knowing what’s in my immediate future. Hate, hate, hate.
Survey, survey, survey. Sorry I haven’t had anything interesting to say for the past few days.

what is underrated?
2607. Can spiders ump?
If they’re certified to.
Did you interpret that as ‘jump’ or ‘hump or ‘bump’ or other?
I interpreted it as “an ability to act as an umpire during baseball games.”
2608. What’s the matter with adults today?
Depends on the adults, haha.
2609. Have you ever worked ‘off the books’?
Um, I don’t think so…
2610. Have you ever worked 9-5?

2611. Do men or woman make better bosses?
Depends on the job/individual.

Movin’ on up.
2613. Why is it that no one seems to care about their job?
I think we’re so obsessed with monetary gains that we’re willing to work in a less than enjoyable setting. Either that or other constraints cause us to settle for a particular job that is not our ideal.
2614. When I go into a store, why doesn’t anyone know anything about what they are selling?
Don’t they? The good employees usually do.
2615. Have you ever seen those people that get that blank, lost expression when they go into a store and kinda shuffle along like zombies?
Do you wonder how they got up, dressed themselves, and made it to the store in the first place?
Usually the stupor starts in the store itself.

Lennon’s song? It’s awesome.

Personal accomplishment? Spiritual fulfillment? You’re a survey freak like me?
2623. What is the purpose of art?
To allow for a creative outlet.
How about movies?
Same as art.
2624. Do you think that anything has lost it’s value because it’s become too ‘commercial’? What?

It’d be nice, but no. I guess not.
2631. There was a sculpture that was supposed to be displayed for a week in the Rockafeller Center in NYC of a falling woman – designed as a memorial to those who jumped or fell to their death from the World Trade Center. It was complained about as grotesque, innopropriate and describe as ‘not art’
What do you think?
It might have been inappropriate, but it certainly wasn’t “not art.”
It was taken down early because it was seen as ‘offensive’. What do you think about that?
I think it makes sense; 9-11 is still a pretty sensitive subject, even 10 years later.
2632. What letter’s sound do you like the best?
I like the ‘k’ or hard ‘c’ sound, but I also really like ‘j’. And the long ‘i’. Haha.

2638. Are you a fan of Jackie Chan?

2640. What is your place in the universe?
That’s what I’m trying to figure out.
2641. Once some scientists dug up a woolly mamoth, frozen in ice. It was still completely whole, not rotted or fosilized. The scientists decided to have a dinner party. It was a very posh affair. they served roast woolly mamoth steaks, the rarest meat in all the world. So, if you were invited, would you have eaten it?
I don’t think I would have solely because I don’t think I would appreciate it. My taste is compromised by my lack of smell to the extent that all meat tastes the same to me. The only way I can tell, for example, turkey from ground beef is the texture difference.
2643. It seems to me that a lot of people don’t value their lives, or life in general very highly. Why do you suppose that is?
Are you like that?
Most of the time, yes, unfortunately.
2644. Do you celebrate the harvest moon?
2645. Do you believe in out of body experiences?
2646. Why does so much depend
upon a red wheel barrel
glazed with rain water
beside the white chickens?
2647. Why do so many people get jobs that they dislike?
Didn’t we have this question already?
2648. Do you think that in THIS world, being creative is a handicap?
Why or why not?
If you’re truly creative, you’ll be able to apply that creativity in almost any situation/lifestyle/job.
2649. Do you ever get chills or shivers during movies? What movies?
No movies. Just books or music.
2650. Do you believe in the collective unconsiouss(that people are like onions..the outer layers are individualistic and the deeper you go the more similar we all are)?
Not to the extent that Jung suggested, no, but I think that all material in the universe has a slight degree of this collective unconscious.
2651. Do you think that most people have the qualities you look for in friends/intimate relationships or do you feel alienated?
I felt pretty alienated up in Van Land, but no, in general it’s not that bad.
2652. Are you very critical:
of others? No.
of yourself? Yes indeed.
2653. Is there such a thing as expecting too much?
2654. Would you rather take an hour lunch break or skip lunch and get out of work early?
I can nom broccoli while working! Let me free an hour early!
2655. Do you believe that happiness is equal to
shallowness? Maybe for some
something good that happens? Most often, yes
an attitude you have inside no matter what happens? Sure
2656. Can you control your emotions?
have you ever tried?
2657. Imagine you are 34 weeks pregnant. You are healthy and you didn’t have any major problems in your pregnancy. Would you consider flying from the UK to Germany, which takes one hour, whithout a bad feeling that something could go wrong or the baby decides to come out earlier?
2658. How long do you think it would take you to jog a mile?
Jogging, it takes me about 9 minutes and 30 seconds, but I haven’t timed myself when I’ve had the intent of just running a mile (I got 9:30 by dividing my 10k run time by 6.2).
2659. Word association:
2660. Picture a triangle. Quick! What color is it?
Picture a square. Quick! What color is it?
Picture a circle. Quick! What color is it?
Why do you think you saw these shapes as these colors?
Triangle = red because triangles are strong shapes (architecturally speaking) and strength is associated with warm colors to me. Square = baby pink because squares strike me as comforting, safe shapes and baby pink is a very safe color. Circle = light blue because circles are the “lazy” shape and laziness is associated with the cool colors for me.
2661. What things are endless?
2662. Are you ever subtle?
2663. Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood…some afternoon that’s so deeply a part of your being that you can’t conceive of your life without it? How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? How can you fully appreciate these moments, every moment, when it all seems limitless? ~Paul Bowles, except from The Sheltering Sky
Interesting quote. Haha, makes me want to take a walk in the dark.
2664. Do you never have an ordinary day?
2665. Do you embrace every single thing you’ve never known?

How about a film snob?
Haha, no way.
2670. When you were in school did you learn to think or repeat?
Both. Depends on the class.

If not, what is missing?
Certainty. Plans. Sanity.
2672. Would you take a very casualy dropped ‘maybe I should just kill myself’ as a warning sign?
Totally depends on the person and context.

Raaaaaaaaaaaain on your wedding day!

2678. Do you think that the culture you live in is completely open to all ideas and forms of expression?
2680. What do you think of the character (muppet) on sesame street that has aids and should this kind of a theme be explored in children’s television?
I think it’s a good thing to be introducing new characters that explore or represent problems associated with today. Didn’t they introduce a homeless muppet a bit ago?
2681. Are you dyslexic?
2682, Can you construct a bong out of:
household objects? Um…
an apple? I don’t know how to construct a bong.
your cat? Though I’m sure a cat is not a necessary component.
2683. Starwars, star trek or star gate?
2684. Windows or mac?
Both! I started with a Mac, so they’re close to my heart.

Wait for others.
2686. How many phallic symbols can you think of?
2687. Would you buy tickets to see the top ten american idols sing live?
2688. A bird may love a fish…but where would they live?
I’m not sure, but would their babies be flying fish?
2689. Are you a hologram or a misfit?
I’m a creep. I’m a weirdo. Wait…what the hell am I doing here?! I don’t belong here!
2690. How are you oriented sexually?
Do you agree with the people who say that everyone is bi-sexual even if they don’t want to admit it?
In a way. Like many, I don’t think sexuality is black or white.
2691. If you are the only human on the planet of the apes do you have sex with an ape?
2692. If you are making out with someone and you reach down and find they have a fish tail instead of legs do you still fool around with them?
How did I not notice this pre-makeout?
2693. Does superman wear kryptonite condoms?
*resisting urge to make “faster than a speeding bullet” joke*
2694. Do you know exactly where you are?
In my chair!
Do you know the meaning of it all?
Do you know the distance to the sun?
Well, it takes light approximately 8 ½ minutes for light to get from the sun to the earth…light travels at like 186,000 miles per second (I can’t remember the exact speed), so that means the sun is about 94,000,000 miles away from earth, or something like that. Of course, that varies depending on where in the orbit you’re measuring.
Do you know the echo that is love?
