Question 39

1. When was the last time you played, danced or purposely stood in the rain?

B. What do you wish scientists would invent?

G. How do you react when you are angry?

6. Goobers or Raisinettes?

Today's lyrical pondering:

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone.

- Grateful Dead

1. Back in 1988, with my gf at the time. We sat in the rain talking all of the afternoon.
B. A fat-burning pill that actually works.
G. My patience runs out and I get very snippy with anyone and everyone.
6. Neither - M&Ms....

1) I usually do it every spring. We will get a nice warm shower. It just makes you happy to stand in it. Hasn't happened yet this year.

B. Antifat pill is good. Then I could get on with my gluttony.

G. I stop talking and when I do talk I keep it at a minimum. Otherwise I might hurt feelings with what I say.

6. Used to be Raisinettes. Definitely Goobers now. I guess you are what you eat.

1) It's been a while for me... The ex would never let Munchkin dance in the the first calm rain we had after he moved out, I took Munchkin outside and let her dance in it. And I took pics. :)

B) Cheap cures for everything.

G) How angry?

6) Neither!

1. Hmmm, with all the rain we've had lately, I haven't really done that. Usually I just go through it. I think I'll take the time to appreciate the next one. (probably this weekend)

B. A clean, cheap form of energy.


6. Goobers if I must choose either. Don't like raisins. How about a Milky Way instead?

1) sometime last year. I don't dance in the rain I cry. I like to go out and sit in the rain and cry letting the rain wash the tears away. Then I feel a lot better. Very cathartic- so is swinging as high as you can in the middle of the night on the playground.

B) A way to make W and congress appropriate more money so that we could invent things.

G. Depends on the situation. I internalize it often converting to tears later, but if I am angry about an injustice I will usually try to correct the situation.

P.S. As to the fat burning pill it already exists- It is known as exercise!

Also these two options will be available soon. Sorry it is a registration site-use bugmenot

1. I love to play in the rain, splash in puddles and twirl around with my hands outstretched a la Sound of Music. :)

B. A cure for cancer.

G. I get quiet. Then I write ... and write, and write. Then I go for a walk or run - if possible. Otherwise, I just try and get some alone time and breath. That being said, it takes A LOT to get me angry. You have to really hurt me and hurt me intentionally for me to get that angry. I stay pretty calm when major things happen. For example ... if you steal my car and crash it while I am on vacation in Brazil, I won't get angry ... but I will make you sit through really long uncomfortable conversations about what you did and how you plan to make it up to me and what you learned from the experience. :)

6. Goobers. Chocolate covered raisins are icky.

p.s. how friggin cute is my panda bear? We have the same eye shape, panda and I. :)

'Love the panda. :)

Great looking panda!

1.It's been a couple years. Last time I was with someone and her and I had a squirt gun fight that got pretty silly...even more silly than a squirt gun fight in the rain ;)...then a long hot shower afterwards.

B. I would say a cure for many of the fatal diseases, but I think some of those already exist, but the drug companies make more money on the treatment than they would on the cure. < /conspiricy theory >. So, in that light, I'd say an inexpensive hydrogen cell for automotive use.

G. Depends on how angry. I'm slow to anger because it's almost always a waste of energy, but if I'm just a bit miffed, I will usually start talking slowly and quietly, but very directly. If I'm really pissed, I will try to walk away because otherwise, I'll get extremely sarcastic.

6. Although I've been called a goober quite a bit, I'll have to go with the Raisinettes....but truly my preference for chocolate covered anything, other than a chocolate covered girlfriend, it cherries..... *wipes drool from corners of mouth*.

1. Never! I love listening to the rain but have never experience anything close to a warm, pleasant rain.

B. I was going to say clean, cheap energy but decided that it ties with cures for horrible diseases.

G. As tamara said, how angry?

6. Goobers. Really, just about any candy will do, especially when I'm angry. :-)

1. A couple of weeks ago.

B. 8-day week.

G. If frustrated or exasperated, I get loud. If seething with a white hot fury, I get very, very quiet. (Though you can see the air boiling around me.)

6. Milk Duds. Despite what they do to my fillings.

1. Deliberately.. late last winter. I took the two girls I was working with (3 yr old twins) down to the local park and we jumped in puddles and ran in muddy grass and they got VERY wet, then we went home for a nice warm bath, PJ's and a mug of hot Milo.

B. an anti-stupidity pill - but we'd have to figure out how to get the idiots to take it.

G. With people I don't know, I generally steam and get snippy, but don't do much about it. With people I know and love, I'll either stew and get silent and be difficult to be around, or if I'm really angry, then I'll let rip and once I'm done, I'm over it.

6. I had to Google them to find out what they were.. we have them here, but we just call em chocolate peanuts or chocolate raisins. So, of those two, Goobers. I'm with Graz on the cherries, though. Mmmmmm...

1. Several decades ago, my sister and I went for a walk during a summer rain. And arrived home to face a VERY angry mother. She predicted all kinds of horrible illnesses, including pneumonia. The next day, we left on a family vacation to Colorado. The day after that, we were in an urgent care facility because my sister had pneumonia. Sheesh.

b. I'd be very appreciative if scientists would invent a device to move laundry from the washer to the dryer; and then, if it's not too much trouble, fold it. I'll put it away if I have to.

G. When angry, I either get 1) very quiet); 2) explode or 3) all of the above in an embarassing display.

6. Goobers.

YAY! I like Sly's invention/idea!!

*uses a slipcover to try to hide the giant mound of clean, unfolded laundry covering on her sofa*

1. I went out in the rain last week on purpose. We'd had a big thunderstorm. Seems like it had been awhile since we had any rain. after the lightning, i decided to walk up to the park and back, just to get a little wet.

B. The fat-losing thing sounds good. So does the cure for diseases, cheap energy and laundry folding. I would also like a pill that allows you to breath freely underwater.

G. I turn passive-aggressive.

6. Goobers. There's just something unseemly and disturbing about chocolate covered raisins.
