sunday sundries

If you had to participate in one reality TV show, which would you choose?

What do you hope to accomplish in the next five years?

Do you have a quirky talent, such as being able to wiggle an earlobe, move one eye at a time, wink with your belly button ... that kind of thing?

Reality TV show? Well, the bachelor on "The Bachelor, Rome," is rather hot and Boy Meets Boy was an intriguing albeit cruel contest, especially if you were the boy, but I'd have to say, hands down, Project Runway. The contestants actually do something real, rather than eat their weight in dung beetles or hang around an ecopod and bicker. Well, they bicker, but they also have to (1) be hard workers and (2) possess some iota of creativity. When you think about it, it's one of the few reality shows with any redeeming social message and values. Hard work, attention to detail, craftsmanship and innovation count. Take that and blow it out your ear Donald Trump and Jeff Probst. Besides, how else would you meet and marry Tim Gunn.

The next five years? What, you think we're stinking communists? We don't plan for the next five months, or even the next five days. Taking anything other than the short term outlook or short term gain is downright un-American. You could be dead in five years for all you know.

Quirky talent? I can suck a golf ball threw a garden hose. Anybody catching on to the fact that I didn't get laid this weekend?

Aw Boo, buck up little camper. It's not so bad. Now, getting laid can be one of your five year goals. :)

1. Does IronChef America count as a reality programme? Because I'd totally rock that show, or if doesn't count, then The Amazing Race.

2. Personally, to find "the one". Also, I'd really like to be a mother before I'm too old to do anything about it. Professionally, if the personal stuff doesn't pan out, pretty much what I'm doing now. I love my job!

3. Not particularly.. When the doctors called me "special", that wasn't what they meant.

*edit into #2* - I want to travel, also. Winning Lotto might be fun, too. I don't think money would change me much, but I'd like the chance to find out.

If you were a chick, I bet you would've!

Anyway,

The reality show I'd most like to be un is "Who Wants to Take This Million-Dollar Check for Free?"

Unfortunately, that doesn't exist. So, probably amazing race, because at least I'd get to travel to some cool place.

In 5 years, I hope to have my Ph. D; besides that, who can tell?

I can jiggle my eyeballs back and forth really fast.

1) American Choppers, because I'd love to get paid and be famous for yelling, building, and riding motorcycles.

2) Motorcycle license, entrepreneur, living in my own home.

3) i can move each eye independently, wiggle my ear, raise my eyebrows, and collect exhorbinate amounts of lint in my bellybutton.

and seriously - the 72 letter safety verification codes are getting out of hand...

I don't think I'd care to be on a reality show, although the "Home Makeover" show would be a worthy effort.

I hope to :
1 - become a father again.
2 - become a better husband and father.
3 - get promoted at work.
4 - move to a bigger house.

I can hyperextend one thumb knuckle. That's about it for freaky stuff.

Punky, what did I say about five year plans? And for THAT, I'm on the five hour, um, five day plan.

Update.. I realised while just doing stuff around the house that I pick up stuff with my toes all the time to save bending over. Is this a quirk, talent, or just plain weird?

Any of the home makeover shows would totally ROCK! My next choice would be the Swan. How cool would it be to be able to change anything you want for free?

Next 5 years: Home makeover; get fit

Like Dan, I can move my eyes independently. I can wiggle my 2nd toe all by itself. And I can let my kitchen get really gross before cleaning it.

Kaf: yes.

i'm not sure that i would want to be on a reality show...they aren't really all that reality - ish...

next five years - not live in my condo but in a house aka HOME, be practicing real estate and being in the top margin for best real estate agents in the state of connecticut.

i pick things up with my toes - ask dan - my second toe is about a foot bigger than my big toe! wierd i know!!! and yes dan does get a lot of lint in his belly button - i knit sweaters out of it...
