Friday Five

So what if it’s Saturday?

  • Do you have a dream you will always strive to achieve until your dying day?
  • Inner peace, outer beauty and everlasting happiness. The day I give up is the day I might as well drive myself to the crematory.

  • Do you believe in fate or free will, or something else?
  • When I was 16, I was convinced I was a transcendentalist. I was also a big dork and read a lot of Whitman and Thoreau. I also didn’t have any friends and believed everything I read in books. 😉

    Overall, my “simple” answer is that I believe in limited or guided free will, in that we are certainly *able* to make our own decisions, but that our intuition is too strong to be ignored.

    I also believe in divine intervention and karma impacting our course — free will wasn’t given to us without consequence.

    I believe some things will never be resolved yet we need to close the door anyway, and if it has already been closed, then we waste precious spiritual energy trying to prop it open.

  • Marilyn Monroe. Conspiracy or tragic accident?
  • Duh, conspiracy. The government always wins. Always. And it doesn’t miss a trick. Big Brother is keeping thousands upon thousands out of the unemployment line with the sole purpose of monitoring the rest of us.

  • Favourite childhood sweets/candy?
  • Seasonally, it was Cadbury eggs. Those and whatever Reese’s product was out for the holidays — peanut butter pumpkins, peanut butter Christmas trees, peanut butter Easter eggs.

    Hell, I just bought two peanut butter pumpkins at Tar-zhay last night. Happiness in a purple wrapper. …

  • Favourite cocktail (alcoholic or virgin) and its ingredients?
  • Caramel Appletini — introduced to me during my last visit to Pittsburgh at the Quaker Steak in Robinson.

    Ingredients — funny you should ask, ’cause I totally copied the menu description onto my receipt while I was there:

    Three Olives apple vodka
    Butterscotch schnapps
    Splash of cranberry
    Iced martini glass, drizzled with caramel

    I had the female equivalent of a hard-on after having that. *rolls tongue back into mouth*
