and Adele

and splash of Otis

stir in Temper Trap

and Laura Jansen

and let it simmer with Bon Iver

Typical line of questioning to all my friends.

I have a habit of asking all my friends the following questions just for fun. (If I have not asked you yet then I am sure I just haven't gotten to you!) I am always surprised at the answers and everyone's reasons why. Especially when people bring up facts or scenarios I had not previously pondered...
  1. Would you rather have superpowers (i.e. superman) or magical p0wers (i.e. Harry Potter) ?
  2. Would you rather have (your answer to question no. 1) or the ability to absorb, retain, and implement knowledge just by touching a book at will (this can be turned on or off so you can still read for pleasure)?
  3. If you had to choose a character from a book or movie to be and live their life with ALL of there ups and downs who would you choose?
well? Answers please.

the one where Tam blows up

Charcoal grills and I are no longer friends.
It was an easy decision when I saw my hair on fire.

In Other News...

A rant on News
It is a habit of mine to read the news on CNN and a local news website which I will not name...With out fail it seems the local news in some way or another has to link all news to San Diego. "Killer linked to SD" (usually by some ridiculous linkage-yes that is a word- like the second cousin of his college roommate's best friend) or "victim may have visited SD" (when they were five, they are now 42). I don't understand why they insist on doing this. I think it makes them look stupid quite honestly.
And then there are the open comments. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? I have a suspicion there is a colony of people located in the very center of Antarctica 1 mile below the surface in a secret lair. Their sole purpose in life is to write ridiculous, prejudice, angry, and rude comments on news websites.
That is the extent of my rant for now...

Random thoughts on big coffee mugs

Although I am certainly not opposed to large amounts of coffee, especially when I am falling asleep at my desk, I have come to the conclusion that much like small paperclips, large coffee mugs are useless.
  1. the circumference alone makes your coffee cold in double the amount of time
  2. it takes up a lot of useful desk or table room
  3. while at breakfast with friends you unwillingly play peek-a-boo behind your cup every time you take a sip.
