Their cheatin’ hearts

Monday Mission v2.30 baby!

What is your favorite snack food? Does anyone you know have weird tastes in snacks?
It depends on my mood I suppose. I am a die-hard sucker for Cracker Jacks and Twinkies, so when I see a bag of each, I nab on them. I recently became addicted to this snack Devina loves. She takes a rice wafer, and places some prosciutto and a piece of marinated artichoke on top of it. It’s a very odd combination of tastes, but it’s quite good.

I tend to think people do not have weird tastes in food, they are just more willing to try out new foods. 😀

Ever caught yourself saying “well it can’t get any worse” and it does? What’s the story there?
In my line of work, you always assume the worst so that there aren’t any surprises waiting for you. There’s nothing worse than telling your boss that a server will be back up momentarily only to have it down for a few days because of some unforeseen problem. The one thing I have learned in my line of work is that you give yourself a great deal of padding when giving a time estimate on anything. That way, if it takes a while you’re still safe and if you come out of it under time, you’re a hero. 😀

I have a super-short attention span, and it always was my downfall in school, especially math class. What’s your attention span like and how has it served you?
I have been known to be the exact opposite way. I’ll concentrate on something much longer than I should, shutting out the rest of the world, until I realize what I am doing. I can’t tell you the amount of times Devina (or any other friend for that matter) was talking to me while I was busy trying to figure something out and I was completely ignoring her. Sometimes I love having the ability to tune out everything around me no matter how distracting it is to get my task done, but at times it has gotten me in a heap of trouble with the girlfriends… 😆

Do you believe in the existence of extra-terrestrials?
When you take into consideration the billions upon billions of stars, galaxies and planets out there, how can one not believe there isn’t anyone else out there? With sheer statistics alone, you have to conceive of at least a large amount of different species out there just living it out like we are here, granted they may not be the same form as we are. I truly believe that it would be a tragic shame if there wasn’t any other forms of life out there. What’s the use of having all of that space out there if we’re the only ones occupying it?

What do you think of the whole “crop circles” phenomenon?
Just a bored bunch of kids with no dance clubs or pool halls around them. Haven’t they been proved to be man-made hoaxes?

Ever had a time where you begin visiting with someone you don’t know all that well and just find you “click” like long lost pals? Tell me about how that came to happen, and who was it? What kind of things do you have in common?
Not really. I tend to click pretty well with most people to begin with. However, I have never clicked with someone like they were an old friend, unless they really were an old friend. People can immediately click to become friends, but to reach the level of intimacy between a very close set of friends, for me at least, it takes a great deal of time and patience.

When I was at the cemetery a few weeks ago, I began to recall my Dad’s funeral so many years ago. It is so vivid, sitting there in the family room as his friends passed by and paid their respects, the music, his face, the tears. What funeral do you remember most vividly?
I took the untimely death of my high school computer teacher really badly. I guess it was because we worked a great deal together and I learned so much for him, but it hit me really hard when he died. I still remember his funeral pretty clearly, though I did not cry as much as when we originally found out. I think before that, I only attended one other funeral and I completely forgot who passed away at that time.

BONUS: How can I forget you, girl?
When there is always something there to remind me.
Always something there to remind me.

Naked Eyes – Always Something There to Remind Me

I’m diggin’ your taste in music there. Again, another GREAT 80’s song. 🙂


Now this is interesting, Is this HOT or NOT?
