1: Black and White or Color; how do you prefer your movies? Generally color because it is what i'm used to, but I'm not opposed to black and white. Have you seen the movie Sin City? It was done comic book style black and white with only minute color details. Kind of interesting.
2: What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death?
Politics. I HATE getting into heated debates with people who never really know what they're talking about. I usually don't either, hense the fact that it bores me to tears.
3: MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: MP3's and CD's due to their superior quality and portability.
4: You are handed one first class trip plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going ... Ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run?
Never. Money doesn't buy happiness and I would never leave my family like that. Family and friends are what bring me joy and who make me what I am today. Without them, even with all the money in the world, I am nothing.
5: Seriously, what do you consider the world's most pressing issue now?
Ignorance. People judge because they are ignorant. People judge based on religion (or lack thereof), sex, nationality, etc...and I think it is rediculous. If people would take two seconds out of their narrow minded lives, they might learn something and find a valuable relationship in the process.
6: How would you rectify the world's most pressing issue?
I would have to agree with previous tagee's and say, Education.
7: You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be?
I wouldn't. I am a firm believer in that everything happens for a reason. If I were to go back and change one minute detail in my life, it could throw everything into a completely different direction. I value each experience, both good and bad.
8: You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be?
As much as I would love to say a LOT of things here, I'm afraid that I would have to go back to answer 7. I can't change things, and if I did, what would that solve? Each bad situation led to a greater outcome, a larger achievement and a step towards the greater good.
9: A night at the opera, or a night at the Grand Ole' Opry—Which do you choose?
Not a huge fan of either, but I guess I'd say the opera. I would much rather see a play or musical, perhaps an orchestral piece.
10: What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you'd like to solve?
Where is Jimmy Hoffa buried?
11: One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal?
Honestly, I would have to say Shel Silverstein. As a child, he inspired me to love reading and poetry. Beyond all other authors, I feel children's authors are particulartly vital. Without them, breaking ground with children, there would be very little hope of them every learning to love the art of reading. I think we would have something fun, perhaps playful, yet sophisticated. Hmm...Shrimp Fetuccini Alfredo (so we could slurp the noodles) with a light green salad and crusty bread. I think we would have pino grigio (spelling?) and of course, ice cream sundaes for dessert.
12: You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky—what's the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact?
Why celebrate with immorality? I would continue to be the good person that I strive to be every day. I think that's a silly question that implies we would all behave badly if their weren't repercussions. I for one, would go against the grain and try to prove that there was a hell below us and that above us, was infinite love, grace and forgiveness. Besides, John Lennon is merely a man.
