Do I really have to choose?
After all, each has their own uniqueness about them that makes them awesome.
Brownies, for instance, are merely small cakes.
Cookies are an awesome snack while watching a movie, drinking some milk, or even sitting on the balcony and enjoying the afternoon.
And then there’s cake. Need I say more about cake.
But I do have one question. Why no mention of pie?
Why not both? To be honest, do we have to have just art, or just science? Science and art criss cross in so many different aspects. I think I put that forward in one post I made called the science of art; the art of science. There is art in science. And, there’s a science to art. Painter, sculptors, authors, illustrators all have a wide range of tools they use. Scientists have to get creative when dealing with problems.
Art and science are not necessarily two separate areas. They compliment each other so well. My answer; both.
Coffee. I’m totally a coffee morning type person.
On the rare occasion, I will have juice. Has to be orange juice, and I like the pulpy stuff. Just has more zing to it, I suppose.
Tea is an evening drink. Or mid morning or mid afternoon. Because that’s how I grew up. We had mid morning tea and biscuits and mid afternoon tea. It was nice, and I often wish I could do it again. I suppose on weekends, but not during the week.
I don’t wear stripes at all.
I don’t even wear polka dots.
I’m pretty much a solid colour kind of guy. And by that, I usually mean black, red, green or white. Sometimes, I get a little crazy and I do a colour combo of two of those. Sometimes, three. Though never combining red or green.
Some colour combos include green, black and white. This combination happens to be the commonly used colours in the Saskatchewan Roughriders team paraphernalia.
Others include red, black, white and a splash of gold, which so happens to be the colours of the Ottawa Senators, the NHL team I happen to cheer for.
There’s also red and black, which happens to be the colours of the Outlook Ice Hawks Senior Hockey Team that I happen to do the Public Service Address announcements for during their home games.
Often, I wear white and red, which will contain a maple leaf somewhere in the design scheme. This, naturally, shows the devotion I have to the country I was born in. Yes, we Canadians can be proud of our home and native land, and I just so happen to be one that will show it more than just on July 1st or during the Olympic Hockey tournament.
So there you have it, in a nutshell, just a few of my fashion tastes.
…has to be…
…the oddest question ever.
None the less, yes, I can flare my nostrils.
At one time, it was a signal my mother used to use whenever I was eating something I loathed with a great passion. Such as turnips or parsnips. That great loathing has continued on to this very day. Other foods that I used to flare my nostrils at while eating consisted of; long green beans, peas, pumpkin, beets, beet greens, broccoli, cauliflower, and oatmeal.
I don’t loathe those foods as much (with perhaps the exception of beets and beet greens, though I will eat them), so therefore I don’t flare my nostrils up as much as I used to.
Parsnips and turnips however, you still loathe greatly.
I find it better to let go after a while. Life’s just way too short to continue to hold a grudge, plus it could most likely affect my blood pressure.
I won’t necessarily forgive, mind you. If someone (or in the case of current politics) some figure or organization, does something that affects me (or a large portion of the population) in a damaging way, and I know that what happened was not my own fault, then I can’t forgive. I also don’t forget. In the case of politics, there is the option to get rid of the one who damaged a society by voting them out of office. On the other hand, at the more local level, when it’s just between two people especially if they see each other a good deal of the time, it’s a little more difficult. I won’t hold a grudge, but I necessarily won’t forgive either.
That depends on what I’m doing at the time, really.
And, whether I have headphones on or off.
With headphones on, as loud as possible. Without breaking my eardrums, that is.
Without headphones, I try to keep the noise level to a minimum so as not to disturb my neighbours.
Yes. Yes I have.
On several occasions in fact. It is actually not something I suggest doing, because pulling an all nighter is sometimes horrific the next day. I mean stupid horrific, where absolutely everything is funny.
If the question meant just all night, oh yeah. Been there, done that. I used to work graveyard shifts at CKOM in Saskatoon and at CJGX in Yorkton for a while as well. Yes, I worked in radio as an on air personality. Or, the more common term, a disc jockey. Man, how I hated that term, but it does essentially describe the position. That and I called each job in radio I worked at a gig.
The first all nighters I spent, however, where in The Pas, Manitoba (pronounced “The Paw” and not “Le Paw” as it is sometimes miscorrectly pronounced, the term is not from any French word as I learned). During those years, at the tender age of 19, I would do it on a whim. Mostly because there was nothing else to do. I’ve done it since then, here where I work now (which is not at a radio station) and let me tell you, I have paid for it in the long run. Do not pull all nighters. Just hell on the body and mind. After a while, your body just says “Screw you! I’m falling down now!”
Oh! Hell no! No. Not a good dancer at all.
Even though I do try.
Okay, two step and the jive, that’s it. And some kind of funky polka type dance. But nothing outside of that.
Also, I just don’t dance because I’m saving the world from massive embarrassment in case they watch me at some point.
This is kind of a silly question. Considering how computer dependent we all have become. I use a computer at work, and I use my computer at home. I even use my laptop at hockey games when I announce over the PA system. So, in truth, I use my computer a lot.
There’s also writing in there, I can’t forget that. I use my computer to write. Which I should be doing right now.
Coffee. Easy enough. Though milk comes in a close second, followed by water. And then root beer, in particular, Barqs.
That is very much a loaded question.
When a large majority of the news networks today seem to have a political bias, or even a political agenda, it’s hard to find a news outlet that doesn’t pander to politicians. In the U.S. it’s Fox News. In Canada, it’s Sun Media. Those are two of the organizations that I trust the least.
It seems the only news sources that are trustworthy are at the local level. I used to work with different radio station news departments, and one of the major things we always discussed was making sure that our reporting was honest and accountable. News organizations at national levels don’t seem to care about that, leaning more toward sensationalism.
So, do I trust the news? Smaller outlets, yes. Larger, national outlets built in the west, no. I just can’t. Not when it seems sensationalism and lying is the order of the day for what they perceive to be news reporting.
I think the worst was working as a clerk at a Mac’s Convenience Store. At the same time it was also good, because it helped me develop better people skills. Sadly, it also made me realize more and more that people are just stupid.
My mom. She’s the most talented I know.
Without a doubt, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
I know what I wouldn’t do. Which would be to take a paranoid stance and begin firing upon them. That would be dumb.
On work nights I sleep anywhere from four to five hours.
On weekends and days off, that number is much higher.
By about six hours. Mostly because my bed is made of warm.
Oh goodness no!
I have this aversion to everything carnival ridey. Give me the tea cups, I’ll be happy. Actually, no, just the bumper cars. I have this extreme fear of heights, thus why I’ll never get on the ferris wheel, and find I get sick very easily when I go on one of those rides that goes back and forth really fast and up high. Like the viking boat that swings like on a pendulum. I probably won’t ever bungee jump, nor will I sky dive.
All of that is related to roller coasters, honest. Too fast, too many turns, too much chance I could lose my lunch and ruin someone’s day five or six cars back. Rather seats.
Having said that, I don’t mind skiing, even though I’m terrible at it, I like cross country skiing, and roller blading (also terrible at it). I’ll watch X-treme sports, but don’t expect me to partake in them any time soon.
And it really didn’t matter if it was done by Marilyn Manson or from the actual movie, it was there. I will add, however, this was not entirely a bad thing. I don’t mind that song very much at all.
Here’s the original from the movie:
And the one covered by Marilyn Manson:
And I guess Panic! At the Disco did a version as well:
Coffee. Hasn’t it been obvious enough by now?
Most likely for me, the time period I would like to be in is the Wild West, around the 1860s to 1890s. And why? That’s a big part of the history that helped shape the county that I live in. While in Canada it wasn’t all gun fights and outlaws, there was a large number of historical people and events I would love to meet.
Chips. Actually, trail mix. But I’m not a fan of pretzels. If not that, then peanut butter on toast. Quick, easy and satisfying. For a beverage, most often tea with a dollop of honey. Most often Red Rose tea.
Saver. Hmmm, that would indicate that I have available money to spend. While I do manage to put away cash into a retirement plan, I don’t really save up for much else. I do enjoy spending money, though, in a reasonable manner. I get this high off of it, to be honest.
