Here’s this week’s Monday Mission from PromoGuy.
1. Ever considered just deleting your Blog and not doing it anymore? What prompted that and what stopped you?
No, but it’s made me consider deleting the rest of the web site and just doing the Blog!
2. How about a quick review of the last movie you saw?
Signs: Full speed into terror, then it hits the breaks. Still, a good night out.
3. What’s your favorite gadget? Are you lusting for any new ones? Will you ever be satisified???
My newest gadget is a cordless screwdriver…which, by the way, does NOT allow you to screw wood screws through metal flashing. I love gadgets and toys. I will never be satisfied.
4. Saturday night I played “UNO” for the first time in years, I mean it has been over 10 years since I played it. It was great fun, but it really made me want to learn how to play Backgammon again. What “table game” do you enjoy playing most with other people? Have you played it lately?
We play UNO at a semi-regular monthly pool party with the gang. Usually, there are some other silly games–like “Phase 10” or something from Cheap Ass Games. We especially like “Lord of the Fries”–a fast food card game.
5. About a year ago I was obsessed with loosing weight, and I dropped pretty low before I got a handle on things (I’ve actually gained about 8 pounds of it back, and it is still a struggle sometimes to not try to loose it). Thankfully, I like fattening sweets and buttery popcorn too much to live like that for too long. Have you ever been obsessed with something so much that it was close to causing you physical or mental harm? If not, have you known anyone else who has?
This Blog is pushing it…
6. Did you grow up in a family or community that displayed racist or prejudice attitudes? Did it influence you in any way, either toward or away from those views? How did you manage to avoid it, or did you?
Good grief, I was brought up by the Civil War made flesh!
My mother was a Yankee from Maine, and my dad was a red neck from Georgia. Once when we visited Georgia, my mother actually got upbraided by her in-laws for holding the door for an old black man (“We don’t do that, here!”).
Times have changed, though. Now, I live in the South (ok, ok, Orlando is not The South…but I’ve been outside the Disney bubble), I think the racist attitude is worse up North than it is here.
Both my parents had enough awful stereotypes and prejudices to steer me clear of those rocks, so I guess it was a good thing (sort of).
7. Good grief, I am starving! You got anything to eat around here?
Mmmmm….bacon, bleu cheese burger for lunch….
BONUS: What did you tell them?
Don’t tell them nuthin’. If they can’t figure it out, they got nothin’ on ya.
