Nineteen Questions

My brain is a little numb tonight, so I'm resorting to a little questionnaire.

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find the 4th sentence. Write down what it says:
"It varied according to his temperament in this way: if the prophet was cheerful, victories, peace, and things which move men in turn to joy were revealed to him; for such men usually imagine things of that kind more frequently; on the other hand, if the prophet was sad, wars, punishments, and all evils were revealed to him; and thus, as the prophet was compassionate, calm, prone to anger, severe , and the like, to that extent he was more ready for one kind of revelation than for another."

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first? The ring on my desk.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV? I don't have a TV, but the boy & I watched the Rifftrax of The Bourne Identity earlier this evening. I'm not sure I have any love for the Bourne series as a whole. It doesn't really do much for me.

4. WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what time it is: 11pm?

5. Now look at the clock, what is the actual time? 11.14pm.

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear? My boy on his computer in the living room.

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing? At about 9pm we went outside to walk the dog & get drinks from the cafe. The boy got a coffee & I, an iced tea.

8. What are you wearing? Yoga pants, a tank top & my hunter t-shirt.

9. Did you dream last night? If I did I don't remember what it was about.

10. When did you last laugh? A few minutes ago when I was looking through some photos of the boy playing with Winston. Too cute.

11. What is on the walls of the room you are in? Two movie posters & my framed Pearl Jam print from their Ottawa performance in 2005.

12. Seen anything weird lately? I think that when you live downtown you see such strange things everyday that you start to forget what is weird & what is normal... it's all blending in these days.

13. What do you think of this quiz? Mmm, well, it's helping me with day eight of NaBloPoMo, so I suppose I can't complain too much.

14. What is the last film you saw? Before the previously mentioned Bourne watching, I watched some of Iron Man & some of You've Got Mail this afternoon.

15. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first? A ticket out of debt. Take that OSAP.

16. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do? I'd teach everyone to be crafty. I think we'd all be happier if we did more art.

17. Do you like to dance? Absolutely.

18. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her? A boy? Our first child is going to be a girl, and you will all know her name when she's born -- for now we're trying to keep it a little hush, hush (& I don't want to decide anything for sure until I meet her). For a boy? Holden, Elliott or Sebastian, perhaps.

19. Would you ever consider living abroad? Definitely. I think it's my dream to live in a place where it is Autumn all year round.

Sleep well friends -- I promise a more intellectually stimulating post tomorrow.

I want to go to this place where it is autumn all year round! At least you get a REAL autumn there - and the bourne idenity didn't really do it for me either.

p.s. I like dancing too (barefooted preferably)

Autumn all year... That would be something, wouldn't it? The briefest and sneakiest season of them all...

It's so lovely! Maybe it would be nice if it were Autumn with brief splashes of nice hot summer -- but I'd just like a break from the humidity that comes with summer here. I've heard that a nice DRY heat is much more bearable.

"Are any of these your cars?" she asked Hakim.

This was the 4th sentence of p. 18 on the first book I grabbed. Not very interesting. Hm.
