5000 questions: part 10

Part Ten

901. Would you rather have a candle scented like blueberries and creme or butterscotch pecan pie?
i love scented candles! i’d choose the butterscotch one, though i tend to like more floral smells.

902. Which ones are fruits and which are vegetables:

well, from what you learn in science, a fruit is the part that is produced by the plant that contains the seeds–so it will be all except the carrot, which is a root, and therefore a vegetable (part of the plant that does not contain seeds). however, if you’re looking at it from a culinary standpoint, where fruit are more sweet, then the fruit are bananas, apples, and cherries.

903. Does it annoy you when people talk loudly on their cell phones in public?

904. Is love a commitment to one person, or can you love more than one person at the same time?
you love family and friends. if it’s the sexual type of love, then my past has shown one can love more than one person at a time. or if you think it’s the first way, then it proves they never really loved me at all.

905. Cover or original:
Smooth Criminal; is it better by Michael Jackson or Alien Ant Farm?
Blue Monday better by Orgy or New Order
I Want Candy; Is it better by Aaron Carter or Bow Wow Wow?
Love Song; Is it better by 311 or The Cure?
It’s My Life; Is it better by No Doubt or The Talking Heads?

hmm…out of all of these, i’ve never heard the covers. so i’d guess i’d choose the original. oh, and i’ve never heard “blue monday” by either. oh, and i believe “it’s my life” is by talk talk, not talking heads. as in, “talk talk / all you ever do is talk talk / talk talk / all you ever do is talk talk…” something my sisters and i used to sing to people who talk so much, especially when the talk is a lot of nonsense.

906. What is the most uncomfortable feeling?
physically, i think it’s a sore stomach, especially when you have to use the bathroom but there’s none around, so you need to hold it in. in a nonphysical way, i think it’s when people are talking/arguing and you’re there in the middle or even like if you know something is going to happen but you just have to wait it out.

907. Do you like Maroon 5?
they’re okay.

908. Would you ever go on a blind date TV show?

909. How much of your wardrobe is dry clean only?
not much.

910. Who’s arms would you like to crawl into?

i have many.

912. Look around you. What is the most beautiful thing you can see?
a dolphin.

913. What is the most beautiful thing you can’t see?
that’s still around me? um. i guess the foliage outside.

914. Take a deep breath. Yawn deeply. Do you appreciate the things most people take for granted, like breathing?

915. Do you appreciate breathing more when you have a cold and you’re all congested and can’t breathe right?
i guess? but i tend to appreciate breathing sometimes when i forget to breathe.

916. Is congestion a positive thing because it helps you to appreciate breathing?
i guess?

917. How is your life like a work of art?
it’s a mishmash.

918. Do you feel that your life influences and is influenced by many other lives?
i don’t feel i have an influence, but i am influenced by many.

919. Has a smile ever made all the difference in the world to you?

920. Have you ever looked at a tree and considered how the roots could be miles long, trailing and entwining with other roots underground, all of them holding the soil together?

926. Have you ever held someone and appreciated how delicate and fragile all life is and felt that they were even more precious and beautiful because one day they would die..and so will you?

927. In ten years someone else might own your house and the room you are sitting in now. Someone else might be standing right next to where you are sitting now. So that means you could be standing right next to someone but you can’t see him or her because they are ten years away. Ever look at life like that?

928. When was the last time you:
Soaked in a bubble bath
it’s been years.

Read a good book outside
i haven’t done this in a while. i like to snuggle in bed and read.

Held someone’s hand
oh, i hold my kids hands’ all the time. especially when they’re misbehaving. although this past year i had a special needs boy who sometimes would not want to join the class to line up, but would do so if i held his hand. he didn’t look at it as punishment, like the other kids did, and it wasn’t, anyway–it was more for safety. but i’m glad he trusted me enough to want to hold on to me, and not feel ashamed about it. also, my son still always tries to hold my hand in public. i get embarrassed and wriggle away because he’s so much older now, but then i feel guilty later when i think that it won’t be long before he won’t want anything to do with me, so i should cherish these times when he still wants to hold my hand.

Felt truly joyful
not long ago. summer!

i used to be pro-life because i feel everyone deserves a chance, and i don’t like people who take the easy way out of responsibilities just by choosing to get rid of their “problem” instead of dealing with it. if you don’t want the responsibility, then learn restraint and not get yourself into that situation. however…after seeing the history of some of the children i work with, i tend to feel like … well, you can make someone carry out their “responsibility” but that doesn’t mean that afterwards they will continue to take care and love it. and i hate to say, but i that could alleviate the pain and abuse the child goes through… i don’t know. i’m still on the fence. i don’t think that if you’re gonna play around you can have an easy “out” but if the child is going to be born into an unfortunate circumstance and live a real hard life…i don’t know.
