1. If you could have a robot that could perform any task at your disposal for a week, what would you have the robot do for you?
That’s a tough one. I would have to go with re-organize everything in the kitchen. It’s a pain to find spots for all of my kitchen appliances and when I do they never seem to get back where they belong. It is not only kitchen appliances — I have the same, or perhaps a bigger problem, with Tupperware containers, too. Having the kitchen robot re-organize and label everything (so it is easy to find the “homes” for the items after they are used) would be fantastic.
2. As part of your pre-planned funeral arrangement, you are asked to name the bronze statue that will represent you for all eternity. What is your bronze statue’s name?
I suppose that if it was a statue of me, my full first, middle and last name with birth and death dates in Roman numerals would have to be engraved into the base somewhere. I say Roman numerals so the vast majority will get mad while trying to read the dates (“What does the M mean… and the X… and the I…?”) If it was a statue that symbolized something about me, maybe an elaborate carving out of marble that incorporates many different symbols for things that I am interested in or passionate about, then it would need an appropriately-named yet thought-provoking and inspiring name. That would be much more abstract than a straight-forward statue of me.
3. Remember Dolly The (Cloned) Sheep? I found her (her??) to be totally freakish. Who or what would you like to see cloned?
I do remember Dolly The Cloned Sheep and I believe s/he (or it) died some time ago. I don’t know if I would want to see a person cloned. I guess I would clone my cat if I could.
4. It is always a good idea to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Tell me one good reason to lie.
Most people would say that they view lying as not acceptable, yet most people do it anyway. I think there are grey areas where it is acceptable, but it depends on the circumstance and who is involved.
5. Who or What would you like to throw into the sea of forgetfulness?
Not sure what it is, but I’m assuming said “sea of forgetfulness” eliminates the person, object, or concept (maybe?) from the face of this earth? If that’s the case, I can think of a few concepts, like animal cruelty or intolerance, that should disappear altogether.
6. You are with a Tea Leaf Reader. What does he/she tell you about your blog?
…tea leaf reader? I’m not sure.
7. We are halfway through the year 2012 and the world has not ended. What will the Mayan doomsday people be doing in 2013, if the world does not evaporate in December?
Finding a new stupid cause to get behind. Maybe Valentine’s Day 2013 will be the “revised” day that the world will end. Oh, wait, no. It will be St. Patrick’s Day, because everyone will drink themselves to death, therefore our vices will get the best of us. Or maybe it will be Independence Day… or August 23rd, whatever day that is — it doesn’t have to be a special day, it can just be an arbitrary day because someone decided s/he liked the number 23. (In other words, I don’t buy in to the “Mayan calendar end of days” BS.)
