Time On My Hands

It’s a quiet Friday afternoon, so I thought I’d try this little survey that Jeff at Speedkill found.

1: Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says:

“which each preposition introduces and draw a circle around”

2: Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?

Paperclip holder

3: What is the last thing you watched on TV?

A snippet of Star Trek Deep Space Nine last night.

4: WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is:


5: Now look at the clock; what is the actual time?

3:46 (I have a calendar reminder on my Outlook to tell me to move my plants to the window ledge for the weekend.)

6: With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

CBC Radio 2 playing the first movement of Sheherezade.

7: When did you last step outside? What were you doing?

12:35 to walk to lunch at the Miami Arts Cafe with two friends.

8: Before you came to this website, what did you look at?

The website that had this survey.

9: What are you wearing?

Grey “Buzzard Central” polo shirt and black Levi’s (it’s casual Friday.)

10: Did you dream last night?


11: When did you last laugh?

Just now when a colleague came in and told me something funny.

12: What is on the walls of the room you are in?

Some prints, including one of my Georgia O’Keeffe posters and a “Meet Me In Montserrat” poster.

13: Seen anything weird lately?

In Miami? Are you kidding?

14: What do you think of this quiz?

It’s different.

15: What is the last film you saw?

In a theatre, Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King.

16: If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?

A 1967 Ford Country Squire.

17: Tell me something about you that I don’t know.

If I told you, you’d know.

18: If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?

Get rid of organized religion.

19: Do you like to dance?

Old-style ballroom foxtrot is okay. Other than that, not really.

20: George Bush: is he a power-crazy nutcase or some one who is finally doing something that has needed to be done for years?

Neither. He’s too dumb to play dead in a cowboy movie.

21: Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?

That takes a lot of imagination since I’m gay, but I’d go with Nancy.

22: Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?


23: Would you ever consider living abroad?
