Question 41

Is your cell phone set to vibrate or a ring tone? If a ring tone, is it a preset tone or a song you downloaded? If it is a song, which song?

What is your favorite season? Why?

What is the most important thing you wish to accomplish by the end of this year?

Sundaes .... cherry or no cherry?

1. My cell phone vibrates then blasts downloaded "Back in Black". It's a real attention getter, which is necessary when my phone is buried under tons of junk in my purse.

2. Summer. Because it's the easiest season. And it feels good.

3. I want to get my son out of his "special" school and into a regular one.

4. It ain't a sundae without a cherry.

1. I am one of the liberated few who doesn't own a cell-phone!

2. It changes with the time of the year. For the first two-thirds of each season, my favorite is the current season we're in. For the last third, it's the season upcoming.

3. Passing enough cumulative exams to be through with them.

4. Maraschino cherries are the food of the devil. Plus I prefer my ice cream goodies blended anyway (ala Blizzards)

1) Vibrate, then ring. It plays Beck's "Girl".


3) If I don't have a better job with way better pay by the end of the year, I am a SCHMUCK!

4) I'm not fond of cherries, but they are essential to the aesthetic appeal of a sundae, and thus I must have one.

It's on vibrate AND Ring, but the ring is the standard one that comes with the phone that actually sounds like a phone ringing, as opposed to some monkeys playing with a MIDI simulator.

Summer - shorts and t-shirt and AC! Actually, I like the longer days, the warmer temperatures and bar-be-queing!

Getting internally certified for my job. It'll also give me a promotion and a raise.

I hate cherries, so not for me!

1) It's set to ring . . . standard Samsung electronic mess. Not stupid enough to invest money in some silly novelty ringtone. I do, however, have select standard ringtones assigned to certain friends and family so I immediately know when they're calling.

2) Autumn. For starters, warm fall colors suit my hair color and complexion (I've given up black, it makes me look washed out). I love autumn smells, like burning leaves, the first time you turn on the gas furnace and apple cider. I like that first frost and the first snap of cold weather. It's always a little bit surprising. I also like the turning leaves against a brilliant blue sky or, even better, against an ashen sky on a cool, rainy day. And, although spring is supposed to be about rebirth and new beginnings, I always thought autumn held more newness: a new school term, new school clothes, new television shows (okay, that last one is a little week). Needless to say, everyone who picked another season is completely and utterly wrong.

3) There you go again, trying to make me examine my life, set goals, dare to dream, etc. Well, i would say buy a house/condo, but i'm not sure it's the right time. So, how about actually complete my Halloween costume (preferrably before October 31st). I have the fabric (yards of scarlet an gold prints, cheniles, jaquards) to make a rather elaborate and flambouyant Louix XVI-type outfit.

4) A cherry is aesthetically pleasing on top of ice cream; however, it is not a necessity for me. In fact, a single cherry is rather useless. It's not like you slice it up into multiple bites to enhance each spoonful of sundae, and the one bite you usually get out of it isn't all that rewarding. Of course, if punky were to playfully pluck the cherry and just a little whip cream from my sundae, throw back her head and seductively lick the whipped cream off before running the cherry around her lips -- lightly coloring them that fire engine red -- then closing her mouth around the cherry while daintly pulling the stem off . . . excuse me, I have to go, um, do something . . .

*chokes on cherry*

I'm OK.

1. It's a standard ring ... set to low. It sound kinds of like a gremlin purring. It seldom rings as I don't really enjoy talking on the phone ... but I do get many text messages. *wink at those who text me*

2. I am so glad I waited until after Boo to answer these ... because I can now write "What Boo Said!" and be done with it! Brilliant.

3. To let go of any hidden/lingering negative/false thoughts/beliefs I may continue to hold about my self, my life, my worth and my ability to be loved! Yay me!

4. Cherries are good for purposes of seduction (see Boo's editorial) ... otherwise, I prefer my sundaes sans cherry.

my "s" jumped from "sounds" to "kind" ... how weird.

1. Vibrates then rings; the one that came with the phone.

2. Spring. I like planting new flowers beds and putting pots of blooming plants on my porch.

3. Dive the Blue Hole off the coast of Belize.

4. No cherry; it takes up prime ice cream space.

1. Rings (unless I'm somewhere like church, a job interview or a movie theatre, then vibrates). I use downloaded ringtones.. currently (because it's Super 14 season and I want to cheer on my beloved Crusaders [who haven't lost a game yet!!]), it's the Crusaders team song "Conquest of Paradise" by Vangelis, usually it's "Baby Elephant Walk", but I do use different rings for family & friends..

2. Autumn or spring. It would be spring, no contest, except for the allergies, which leave me curled up double on my sickbed.. those times of change are just beautiful to watch.

3. I'd like to meet someone that I'd consider spending the rest of my life with.. he doesn't have to be the eventual choice.. just a contender would be nice!

4. If it's real, yes, if it's glace, no. Personally, I'm more of a banana split fan, though.

Vibrate at work, ring at home. It plays either the X-files theme or part of Clocks by cold play. Neither are MIDI monkey synthesized though (not polytronic) and got them free. Weasel's phone plays the muppet show theme song or Ghostbusters

Summer - I love to swim and boat and BBQ

1.Vibrates then ring, unless I'm in a meeting. Right now I have "Times Like These" by the Foo Fighters.

2. Spring. Young men's fancies lightly turn to yadda, yadda, yadda......

3. To have made strides in my life. Health, home, career, someone that's not a complete psycho to share them with.....

4. Yes, cherries. With the stem preferably for the demonstration purposes.

1. vibrates then rings, preset tones, 1 ring tone for family, 1 for everybody else.
2. spring - its warm and sunny and a nice relief after winter
3. pay off my credit card debit. though it's going to difficult now that I've had to buy a new car.
4. Cherry
