Friday 5

Superpowers

  1. If you temporarily* had the power of invisibility, what’s the first thing you’d do with it?I'd get on with my work without so many interruptions.
  2. If you temporarily had the power of telekinesis, what’s the first thing you’d do with it?I'd never go shopping again!

  4. If you temporarily had the power of super-stretchy limbs, what’s the first thing you’d do with it?This sounds like hell, having known some people with ACTUAL super-stretchy muscles. It's not particularly awesome.
  5. If you temporarily had the power of super strength, what’s the first thing you’d do with it?I'd probably do some creative rearrangement of stuff at work. In good ways, by the way.

* say, for exactly twenty-four hours

All About that Bass (2014)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is body positive. In that spirit: What physical feature would you never change, no matter what?
Generally, I would never want different hair than what I have. Based on the last week, I would also not trade my very hard skull.
2) The lyrics mention how often the media uses Photoshop to present a more ideal female form. Is Photoshop on your computer? If so, do you know how to use it?
Nope. I almost never adjust the photos I take, not beyond the occasional crop to cover up my poor framing of the original.
3) She also sings about Mattel's Barbie doll. According to Toys R Us, this year's best-selling doll is not Barbie but Disney's Elsa. Have you seen Frozen?
Nope. But a coworker has dressed up as Elsa at least twice this year--yes, she's the children's librarian. I think the day is coming when I'm going to be tied to a chair by friends and be forced to watch all the good animated movies of the past decade: Nemo, Up, Frozen, etc.
4) In the video, Meghan dances merrily around her twin bed with its pink head/footboard. Describe your bed to us.
My dad built our headboard (queen-sized) out of scrap wood as a wedding present. We now own a king-sized adjustable Sleep Number bed which is sorta dorky-looking with that headboard. We just put the winter blanket (it's a Pendleton faux-Navajo blanket) back on this weekend--this week is supposed to get into the teens at night a couple of times--and we have a light-blue spread with embossed seashells on it. Because it's a split top mattress, we have individual twin bottom sheets and I sewed together the two twin top sheets, so it is a HUGE sheet. And matching pillowcases, plus another set of pale sand-colored cases to make 4 total pillows. ... Now I want to go to bed.
5) Ms. Trainor began writing songs when she was 11. Would you find it easier to write lyrics or music?
Lyrics.
6) Meghan recently performed "All About that Bass" on the CMAs with country star Miranda Lambert. Who is your favorite country singer?
I like Miranda a lot. Some of her songs are hysterically funny. I also like Kenny Chesney for the same reason. But Steve Earle wins, simply because of the lyrics; his voice is nothing special, but Jeebus is he good at lyrics!
7) In September, Meghan had to cancel several concerts because of throat trouble. Are you battling a cold, cough or sore throat this morning?
I've had a scratchy-sounding throat for months, but it hasn't ever been "sick" so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm knocking wood that I don't get any of the various maladies that are in the air here at home or at work. Beast had the flu a week ago, and someone I work with has had a bronchial/sinus thing.
8) Meghan was born in Nantucket, MA. "Nantucket" is an Algonquian name that means, "faraway island." How did your town get its name/what does it mean?
The town where I work is named after the town with the same name in Vermont which was named for the one in England, and it means "an open space in a forest." There are towns with that name in Virginia, New York, Ontario, Alabama, New Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Ohio, Minnesota, New Brunswick, Tennessee, Georgia, Maine, Connecticut, Maryland, and South Africa. The town (technically, it's a village {{eyeroll} as well as an unincorporated "area") in which I live is named after the lake, which is man-made and not exactly true to its name. But at least it's original. AND it has its own entry in Urban Dictionary. (NOT a direct link!)
9) According to the National Weather Service, between rain and snow, winter brings Nantucket the most precipitation it sees all year. How is the weather where you are today?
Cold and cloudy. Coldest day of this season so far, but not the forecasted coldest day of the week. But I'm perfectly happy as we are not getting any precipitation. Beast is on his way into the teeth of a storm today, so that sucks.

1. Which superhero was your favorite when you were growing up and why?
I liked Batman on TV. Otherwise I didn't have a lot of contact with superheroes as a child.
2. What would you consider to be the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Gawd knows what some of the stuff I've eaten overseas was made of! The weirdest think I know about....? Hmm. I try not to eat weird food. I'm better off not knowing.
3. Did you enjoy that strange food?
Until I know it's weird, I'm probably going to enjoy it.
4. Which genre of music have you listened to the most during the past month?
I'm a pop princess. But I've had gospel, reggae, heavy metal, hip-hop, R&B, screamo, reggaeton, oldies, house, dance, and country running through Spotify too.
5. What three words would you say best describe you?
Goofy, flaky, stubborn. Those were the first three to pop into my head.
6. What are three words you wish would most describe you?
Sensible, calm, single-minded. I occasionally approach these, but rarely stay very long.

The Blue Meme

26) Are you happy with the person you've become?
Generally, yes. There are some specific points that I'm working on.
27) What's a sound you hate; sound you love?
I hate sirens. I love baby giggles.
28) What's your biggest "what if"?
I don't do much in the way of "what if" but I suppose...what if Mom had gotten Dad help faster when he had his last heart attack....
29) Do you believe in ghosts?
Not in the popular "woo-woo" sense. I think our loved ones hang around waiting for us to figure life out, but not all the time. I mean, really--it must get boring watching us screw up over and over.
30) How about aliens?
I see no reason to think we're the only planet with sentient life on it. But I also have no proof that we are not.
31) What is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
Getting pregnant when I did. OK, that was really more a God decision, but still....
32) What's the worst place you have ever been to?
I can't think of any places that are really awful. I've had bad travel experiences in different places around the world, but that doesn't mean the place itself is bad. Having said that, most of the Soviet Union was depressing as hell.
33) Can insanity bring on more creativity?
Sure. Why not? There has to be an up side to mental illness somewhere.
34) Most attractive actor of your opposite gender?
I'm really liking Christian Bale lately.
35) To you, what is the meaning of life?
"It is not your job to complete the task of perfecting the world, but neither are you free to desist from it." [Mishnah]
36) Define "Art".
I think of art as something that can make people recognize the world outside themselves and even make connections with things they would never experience otherwise.
37) Do you believe in luck?
Kind of.
38) In your opinion, what makes a great relationship?
Mutual respect and trust.
39) What's a song that always makes you happy when you hear it?
So very many... I'll go with "I Wanna Dance With Somebody"
40) Where were you yesterday?
At church, and then at work.
41) What's the worst injury you've ever had?
I haven't had that many "injuries" but the worst medical issue was probably when a fibroid tumor burst.
42) Do you have any obsessions right now?
Beast laughed at me today because I couldn't get my bagel back together "right"--as in lined up the way it came apart. It doesn't taste right if it's not lined up with itself.
43) What's up?
The sky. I'm not Chicken Little.
44) Ever had a rumor spread about you?
Sure. Isn't that basically junior high school for everyone?
45) Do you believe in real magic?
Well, since I don't know what "real magic" means....yes. Or no. I believe there are things science hasn't explained. Does that mean it's magic?
46) Do you ever hold grudges against people who have done you wrong?
I do. But the grudges I hold are against those who've done my FAMILY, especially Sparky, wrong.
47) What's your favorite (non-pet) animal?
Wolf.
48) What is your secret weapon to get people to like you?
Make them laugh, preferably at me.
49) Where is your best friend?
One is across the room, one is an hour straight north, in another state, and another is about 4 hours directly northwest of me, in yet another state. :'(
50) What do you think is Satan's last name?
I'm not going to dignify that with a straight answer. Satan actually means "adversary" in Hebrew, and he's actually more of a legal character than a person per se. He acts as the advocate for any argument against God. Which then conflated with the concept of being anti-God, and then completely opposite God, someone who rules the anti-heaven, where God is not. Satan isn't always such a bad guy, just a theocratic defense attorney.

Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? (1932)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Bing Crosby wants a dime for food. Adjusted for inflation, 10¢ in 1932 is now worth $1.69. Can you think of anything you could buy at the grocery story with $1.69?
Several cans of vegetables/fruit. Generic cereal. A 2-liter bottle of brand sodapop. Some fresh produce (not much). It'll also buy you a breakfast burrito at McDonalds with money leftover.
2) This song was originally released as a 78 rpm record. Have you ever seen a 78?
We OWN several 78s! Beast's dad had a couple of dozen that he (mostly) transferred to CD, but we still have the originals. In their original sleeves in a couple of cases. And yes, should we wish to, we could even play them.
3) In 1932, Jean Harlow was Hollywood's glamor queen. Who do you think sets the standard for glamor today?
Probably Angelina Jolie. Or Princess Kate. I don't know, it's not my bailiwick.
4) One of 1932's best selling books was Agatha Christie's Peril at End House. She remains popular today. Are you familiar with her work?
Uh, yeah, I've read a LOT of Dame Aggie's works. This one doesn't ring a bell, but I've probably read it.
5) This week's featured artist, Bing Crosby, worked as a caddy when he was 12 and continued to enjoy time on the golf course his entire life. What type of exercise do you do most often?
I'm really good at running late.
6) Bing had twin sons, Dennis and Philip. Many people believe that the propensity for twins is hereditary. Are there twins in your family?
Nope. Thank God for small favors!
7) Bing's daughter, Mary Crosby, has her own place in TV history. Do you know why?
I do now, but I had forgotten she was a nighttime soap actress back in the day.
8) In the mid 1970s, Crosby and his family did commercials for Minute Maid. Do you have any orange juice in your refrigerator?
Nope. I got more than enough orange juice as a child. Unless it came out of the orange in the last 10 minutes, I'll pass.  
9) Now for something completely random: Do you like beef jerky?
I do. And yes, that is totally random.

1. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Peppermint. Or vanilla with butterscotch topping.
2. Of the cars you’ve owned, which has been your all-time favorite and why?
I loved my two little trucks, the '87 Toyota and the '98 Ford Ranger.
3. If you were to book a flight, how much would the airline brand factor in to your decision to fly?
In this country, it pretty much has to be United because Beast gets miles we can bank; or we'd be using those miles. Overseas, it would be a Star Alliance brand for the same reasons.
4. Was the last dream you remember experiencing while you slept a happy dream, a sad dream, a scray [sic] dream, or one that made so little sense it would have to fall into the “none of the above” category?
It was weird. Not exactly a bad dream, but kind of unfortunate. I don't remember a lot of details except that a lot of people from different parts of my life were involved somehow.
5. Which do you see more often: your regular physician, your dentist, your eye doctor, or a specialty doctor?
I see my eye doctor and dentist regularly every six months--although this year I think I've seen the dentist 4 times (stupid crown). I've seen my primary care doctor twice this year. I'll be seeing a specialist for the second time sometime before the end of the year. At least I hope so, because I want this stupid thing dealt with soon!
6. Considering everything you are wearing right now, how many different colors do you have on at the moment?
(Intentionally) grungy white, sky blue, red, gray, some yellowish leftovers from dinner (sigh)...and orange nail polish. The latter really needs to be removed. Maybe during football tonight...

Friday 5 (very late)

Non Sequitur
  1. What’s your sneeze like?
    Loud, a little splattery if I don't catch it in time.
  2. How’ve you been sleeping lately?
    Better than a couple of months ago. I still wake up in the middle of the night almost every night, but on either side of that, I'm sleeping instead of dozing.
  3. What was your last stroll like?
    I can't remember my last stroll. I don't very often stroll.
  4. What was the last thing you watched on YouTube (feel free to share the link!)?
    It was something lame-o and geeky my son posted on Facebook. I'm not sharing.
  5. When did you last get something in right at the deadline?
    That's my usual MO, actually. I don't very often have those kinds of deadlines.

Blogthings Explosion

I'm really far behind on posting this, so I'm doing all the old ones before I go back to one a day later this week....

You Should Go to the Olympics
You are an international and cosmopolitan person. You love to experience different cultures and ways of living.

You love how inclusive and diverse the Olympics are. And you wouldn't mind visiting every location that hosts them.

You may not be the biggest sports fan, but you're sure that you will find something you'll love at the Olympics.

Besides, there's probably no better place in the world to do some good people watching than the Olympic Village!
Oh, yeah, I'm so IN for this! I was disheartened when the US lost the next Olympics to Rio. I had intended to volunteer. Oh, well.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are a Pumpkin Latte
You love fall and embrace everything about it. In fact, you are a bit of a geek when it comes to fall.

You are ready to celebrate at the first sign of fall. And you have been known for celebrating a bit early.

You may be guilty of loving all the cliché things about fall, but they're cliché for a reason.

You look forward to fall and enjoy every single part of this season. You know you'll miss it like crazy when it's gone.
I'll miss it like crazy because after fall comes WINTER. Ick. However, I do NOT drink lattes, and I hate pumpkin-flavored anything anyway.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are An Idealist
You see the world as it should be, and you try to live up to your ideals. You take values seriously.

You are careful about what sort of mark you leave on the world, and you treat people with respect.

You wish that the world would change, but you know you probably won't get that lucky. Instead you try to be the change.

You have high standards, but you acknowledge that we are all works in progress - and that includes you!
Well, yes, actually.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are a BBQ Chip
You are down to earth and practical, but not too practical. You still like to have fun.

You are quite charming, and people enjoy being around you. You naturally take on the host or hostess role.

You are generally easygoing, but people can try your patience. You prefer to lead a group if you can.

You are always down to have some fun, and you're likely to think some up if things get a little too dull.
Fairly accurate, except for the minor detail that I don't like BBQ, or BBQ-flavored stuff, that much.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
Your Addiction is Gaming
You may not have considered yourself a gamer until you got a smartphone, and now you love to play fun little games.

You are addicted to whatever the latest game on your phone is, and you keep playing to reach the next level!

You are a fun loving person, and you never have a problem entertaining yourself. You refuse to be bored.

You can be a bit easily distracted at times, but it's often a good thing. Your play can lead to some cool discoveries.
Well, this is no surprise. I was told, recently, by my college-age son that absolutely should NOT start playing Minecraft because I "will never stop." Having watched kids at work play this after school and all summer, I tend to agree.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are the Study
You are a total brain, and you don't stop learning just because work or school is over.

You find little more relaxing than a good book, and you wouldn't mind a room stocked full of interesting reading.


You aren't just a bookworm - you're a full on intellectual. You may do a lot of interesting writing and thinking in that study as well.

The world is fascinating to you, and you are often quite content to quietly learn about it in the comfort of your own home.

The one thing our house is missing. :( But the good news is that I can study here.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Should Eat in Barcelona
You are a true foodie, and there's little in this world you won't try. Your taste in food is broad.

You emphasize quality over quantity when it comes to eating. You like the best ingredients, prepared properly... maybe with a bit of wine.

You enjoy travel, but you don't like to wander aimlessly. You would rather stay in a place for a while and savor it.

You are attracted to a slower pace of life, even if it's only something you get to experience when you're on vacation.
Barcelona sounds lovely. Much of this description is a long ways away from my reality, but I'll taste anything once.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Should Go to a New Years Parade
You think holidays are more important that some people realize, and you enjoy taking stock of your life at holiday time.

You are a big believer in out with the old and in with the new. And you love to celebrate that.

You also strongly believe that holidays should be about
community and and ritual. There is a lot lost when things become too commercialized.

You love the idea of a parade you go to every year on. Especially if there's some good food involved too!
And, ironically, just before I did this quiz we purchased tickets to see the Rose Parade on January 1, 2015. So, yeah.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are Ross
You are a very sweet person, and you are as sensitive as you are kind. You take everything to heart.

You are a romantic, and you don't give up on your true love. That being said, you do have some trust issues!

While you can be emotional with people, you are very logical when it comes to ideas. You have a scientific mind.

You are concerned with the facts, and you aren't above correcting people if you think they're wrong. You can be quite stubborn.
SHOCKING! And thank God I didn't end up as one of the women!

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are Cloves
You love simple pleasures, and there's no comfort too small for you in this life.

You tend to be a bit of a homebody, and you're okay with that. There is no place cozier than your home.

You may love to kick back, but you're far from dull. You love to engage all of your senses.


You are a deep person, and you appreciate complexity. You immerse yourself in the things you love.
I like cloves. I don't like chai. I really REALLY hate the phrase "chai tea"--it's just like saying "cola soda."

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are Impulsive
You live for the moment, and you're not the type to turn down something that sounds good.

You like to indulge a little, and you don't think there's any shame in enjoying life every day of the year.

You may have an impulsive streak, but you are also very down to earth. You like your pie on the table... not up in the sky!

You may keep to yourself at times, but you enjoy a good conversation - either with friends or with strangers.
I love pie, but if this is pumpkin pie, I'll pass. Otherwise, yes, this is true.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are Purple Headphones
You are a highly imaginative person, and you appreciate music that is a little outside the mainstream.

You value creativity, and you love it when musicians get a little out there with there music. Experimenting is good!

You are highly individualistic, and you prefer musical artists that have a strong voice. Cookie cutter music doesn't appeal you.

You are drawn to music that is very powerful, even if it's not the easiest to understand. You like complexity and meaning.
Actually, no. I like music that's fun and meaningful. I don't like too much experimenting.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are Finland
You have a mysterious charm and allure. People get that you are quite deep, and they struggle to figure you out.

You enjoy your alone time, and you find yourself in solitude. That isn't to say you don't enjoy a raucous night [or day] out on occasion too.

You see life as magical, and you do whatever you can to find your magic in this world. You appreciate art, tradition, and nature.

You are special and unique.
You don't care if anyone can appreciate you - you are happy enough with your delightful quirkiness.
Too bad I can't speak Finnish....
I don't really think I'm that quirky, actually, or deep, or hard to figure out.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Should Visit a Corn Maze
You approach fall with a spirit of adventure... even if that means you may end up getting a little lost.

You like to explore and see what's out there. Every fall is different and unique in its own way.

In general, you tend to be a bucket list type of person. You're all about checking off those unique experiences.

You are open to whatever comes your way. And if you find out something is not for you, at least you tried it out!
I like Corn Mazes, even though they actually make me sick because of the allergies I have. However, most of this description is talking about someone who isn't me.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Should Write a Memoir
You're the type of person whose life is stranger than fiction... so you might as well write about it!

Your life has been one wild ride - some of it by choice, some of it by circumstance. There's a lot for you to write.

You have a fairly objective and interesting take on your own experiences. No one can tell your story as well as you can.

Your life has been an interesting journey, and you're always learning and doing more.
Who knows? You may have even more than one memoir in you!
Someday, I'll get around to it. Like my dad did. ;-}

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
You Are Beatitudo
You look outward instead of inward for happiness. You are all about what you can do for others.

You feel happy if the people around you are happy. You find that worrying about your own life simply brings you down.

You are a good friend to many
, and a model family member. You always make time for the people in your life.

You are cooperative, not competitive. You believe it could be a much happier world if we just all work together.
Yeah, doing well, till the wheels fell off towards the end.

The Music Meme
...
1. Which bands/artist do you own the most albums by?
Either U2 or Melissa Etheridge.
2. What was the last song you listened to?
Hmmm, I don't know. Maybe the re-beginning of RHPS Friday night: "Science Fiction Double Feature." LIPS!
3. What’s in your CD player right now?
In the car is Diana Gabaldon's latest (I'm on disc 16 of bloody-38 total. OMG! I think there's one in the kitchen player, but I'm not sure what. The soundtrack to "South Pacific" maybe?
4. What was the last show you attended?
I can't even remember.
5. What was the greatest show you’ve ever been to?
The greatest show I've been to is probably The Lion King, the traveling show, about 7 years ago.
6. What’s the worst show you’ve ever been to?
So many kids' music productions.

16. What’s your “guilty pleasure” that you hate to admit to liking?
I don't care if people know what I like. I do like Nickelback just fine. I also like the Bee Gees and the Backstreet Boys. C'mon, the music is fun and it brings back good memories. What I don't like anymore is ODing on any one artist exclusively all the time.
17. What is your favourite movie soundtrack?
Oh, no, I can't do that. There are way too many of those to even START listing....!
