let go of your mind and then be mindful. Close your ears and listen!

  1. What did you think of the movie Black Hawk Down? haven't seen it
  2. What movie has the most surprising ending ever? April Fools Day
  3. What are you currently angry at? I am no fan of whiny people
  4. Who is harder to please, you or your lover? if this was a realistic question, the kind that could be answered in earnest, the answer would be obvious: him
  5. What is the most dramatic thing you have ever done for attention? I don't love attention ... but I do love shoes. And some of my shoes are really, really extravagant.
  6. What do you have issues with? mayonnaise, banjos, and unrestrained seersucker
  7. There is a nuclear war and your fallout shelter has room and supplies enough for two. No one knows about the fallout shelter but you. Who do you choose to take in? (Remember, the person you choose is the only person you will know in 5-15 years when you can come above ground again.) in other words: who is the one person you want to spend 15 years with in a bunker, and then the rest of your life with outside of the bunker?

  8. Do you have any fillings? I read that as "filings." I think that means I'm officially back in the legal world.
  9. What do you do when you are home alone that you cannot do when other people are at home? I live alone, so it's all good

  23. Doctor: listen, and speak clearly
  24. If someone you loved was seriously miserable for a long period of time, what would you do to help cheer him or her up? I don't believe in "cheer them up." I would try really hard to shut up and listen, and from that I would try to determine what they needed and wanted and to help them do that.
  25. What was the best year of your life so far? 34 was good. Hard but good.
