Thursday Thumb-Twiddler

It's time for Dave's Thursday Thumb-Twiddler!

1. How do you picture your funeral? Something nice, but not too "funeraly." I would like there to be some flowers, but not a lot, with the rest of the money going to charity. I would like to be cremated, so just my urn on a dais with my friends and family saying nice things about me. And forget that boring music they always play. Play Sting for me.

2. As a juror, you are sworn to not discuss with anyone the details of the trial you're impaneled for. Do you (would you) anyway? I would like to say I wouldn't, but I probably would with Steven and a few close friends.

3. Would you rather live someplace where it's always between 80-90 degrees F both day and night, or someplace where it's always 40-50 degrees F? (For you metric types, that's 26-32C or 4-10C.) Definitely choice a. It gets down into the 60s and I am freezing. There is no why I could live anywhere cold. I am just not made for cold weather.

Thursday Thumb-Twiddler

It's time for Dave's Thursday Thumb-Twiddler!

1. You're helping raise money for a charity, and someone pledges a very large contribution if you'll perform, on stage, at the upcoming fund-raising show. There will be about 1,100 people in the audience. Would you be willing to perform? If so, what sort of act would you prefer to do? I can't honestly think of anything that I could do that would be very good, but I would be willing to for charity. At least, I think I would. I do get stage fright, so I might chicken out, but for a large amount of money, I would definitely try hard. I guess I would do some singing, but only if backed with music and I could pick the song.

2. Have you ever cheated in a game (like a card game) for money? No. It's too hard to do in Vegas and you can't really do it online in the tournaments I play in.

3. If you could go back in time and relive any moment in your life exactly as it happened, what event would you choose to experience again? How about I be really hokey and say my first date with Steven? It was a great date.

It's time for Dave's Thursday Thumb-Twiddler!

1. If you were to discover that your closest friend is a heroin dealer, what would you do? I would try and get them to stop dealing. If I couldn't, I don't think I could remain friends with them, but I doubt I could turn them into the police.

2. Having learned to a moral certainty that the world is going to end in six months, what one thing would you do for the first time? I would travel to Greece and Italy - two places that I have to go to before I die. I would also try skydiving.

3. If you could create a memorial to yourself in a city park, what would it be? A koi pond filled with fish. It would have benches around it and lots of trees so people could sit in the shade and people-watch, read, or whatever makes them happy.

Thursday Thumb-Twiddler

I was really busy yesterday, so here's Dave's Thursday Thumb-Twiddler.

1. You are a state legislator. An industry group offers you a sizable, but legal, political donation, "no strings attached," while you have a bill they favor up before you. Do you accept the donation, or reject it? I would accept it more than likely, but I wouldn't let it influence my vote. If I didn't believe in the bill, I wouldn't vote for it.

2. While reading a new book by a famous scholar, whose previous work you've very much admired, you come across multiple passages that seem familiar. You do some digging around and find where the scholar has lifted, almost verbatim and without credit, all those passages from an obscure work by another author. What, if anything, do you do? Honestly, I'm not even sure who you would contact in that case. Maybe send a letter to both the author and his publisher and the author that was plagiarized to begin with and see if they would give proper credit.

3. If you were to be forced to have the same thing for dinner every night for a month, what would you choose? Hmmmm. Tough one. I would pick fajitas from Lupe Tortilla's! Yummy yummy!

It's time for Dave's Thursday Thumb-Twiddler!

1. You've been diagnosed with a presently incurable disease, with no more than three months to live. If you had a modest chance of surviving cryogenic freezing in the next week, to be awakened in a thousand years to live a greatly extended life ... would you do it? No. You wouldn't know anyone, the world would be so radically different, it just doesn't really seem worth it.

2. A friend asks for your opinion about an original novel (painting, sculpture, song) they've created. You think it is utterly dreadful. Do you lie about it, diplomatically tone down your true feelings, or tell the complete, unvarnished truth? I would do an in-between. Let them know that I think some things need to be changed and see if we couldn't start to get the thing better bit by bit.

3. In honor of the weather, what do you think is the most enjoyable thing to do in the snow? Um, I've never actually seen snow, so I have no idea. Nothing really sounds that enjoyable, though, because I don't like the cold.

Thursday Thumb-Twiddler

It's time for Dave's Thursday Thumb-Twiddler!

1. Would you prefer to be blind or deaf? As much as I love music, I would have to pick deaf. While it is undoubtly hard not to be able to hear, I think it would be even harder to make it in the world being blind.

2. If you could transfer to your mate the one trait that you possess that you wish s/he did, what would it be? I wish Steven would be more inclined to give people the benefit of the doubt. I'm the typical liberal willing to believe the best of people (though it's getting harder to do in today's world) while Steven is the typical conservative where people have to prove themselves first.

3. If you could fly in a hot air balloon over any city in the world, what city would you choose? My very first thought was Paris. I bet it would be amazing to go over and see all the beauty of the city from up high.

It's time for Dave's Thursday Thumb-Twiddler!

1. Would you rather die peacefully among friends at 50, or painfully and alone at 80? Assume that most of those thirty years would be "good" ones. That's kind of tough. Assuming that most of the thirty years in between would be good, I would say at 80.

2. Your teen arrives home one night with a big dent in his car fender. You find out the next day there was a hit-and-run in the neighborhood. Would you try to find out if your kid was involved? If you found out s/he was, would you notify the authorities? What if there was a death from the hit-and-run? I think I would have to. Otherwise the possibility that they were involved would hang over everything else for the rest of your life. Reporting them to the police, however, would be very difficult to do. I guess I might, though.

3. What would the title of your autobiography be (not including your name)? Easy. The Neurotic Fishbowl That Is My Life.

Thursday Thumb-Twiddler

Since I like memes (I know; shoot me), I thought I would try out Dave's Thursday Thumb-Twiddler.

1. You receive notification of jury duty. Do you go willingly, or do you try and find some way to beg off (or get yourself disqualified)? What if you were told that the case you were being impaneled for might go on for months? I used to get them while I was in school which automatically lets you skip it. The one other time I got called I totally forgot about it and found the card months later. Personally, I would try to beg off, though I should do my civic duty and go.

2. Would you be willing to give up sex for one year if you knew it would give you a much deeper sense of peace than you have now? Considering how much peace I lack in my life, I just might. Man, oh man, would it be tough to hold out for a year, though!

3. What's the most violent television show you watch? What about the most sexually graphic? Hmmm. I don't really watch a lot of violent television shows. I guess I'd have to say 24 or maybe Witchblade. It's usually movies that are the most violent of the two. Sexually graphic would probably be Sex in the City or the occasional Real Sex episodes I catch.
