And here we are again

Monday Mission 3.09

1. Are there any television commercials on these days that are among your favorites? What is your favorite television commercial from your childhood?

Man TV sucks ASS these days as do commercials. I've never liked commercials. EVER. Not when I was a kid and not now either.

2. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Would others agree with you?

Good question. I don't know. There've been times I've felt like both. Maybe I am both. You'll have to ask someone who knows me. As the philosopher Kierkegaard observed, we cannot see ourselves the way others see us. Our own subjectivity gets in the way. People exist as mirrows for our own true natures.

3. What kind of a worker are you? Do you like a job where you have a daily routine that you can count on every day? Or do you prefer to be in an environment where there is constant change and you never know what to expect from one day to the next?

Who likes an environment of constant change? What could possibly be good about that? Who could like an environment where every day you go to work not knowing if you're going to be FIRED or not? I'm quite content with my daily routine thank you very much. As it is, being a busdriver provides me with quite a bit of excitement and amusement throughout the day.

4. When you've gone out on first dates, what sort of decisions would go into your choice of dinner? Price? Ease of conversation? The "messiness" factor?

I agree that a salad makes a good meal choice on a business lunch. As far as first dates go, well I suppose it depends on a lot of things. But to me, price or "messiness" never comes into play in my choices.

5. What are some of your all-time favorite movie quotes?

Gosh, how could I possibly list all my favorite movie quotes in one sitting. There's way too many. But to name a few:

Practically everything uttered by Gunnery Sgt Hartman in 'Full Metal Jacket'

"When was the last time you heard anyone say, "Honey, why don't we stay in and order some nice Canadian food?" - Smiley from 'Candian Bacon'

"Dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way." - 'Jules' from "Pulp Fiction

"I'm a mushroom cloud laying mother fucker, motherfucker!" - 'Jules' also From "Pulp Fiction"

"Hello. My Name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." - from The Princess Bride

"I don't believe it. 'What?' England. 'Just a conspiracy of cartographers?" - from "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead"

"It's a device really. You must understand we are tied down to a language that makes up in obscurity what it lacks in style." - from "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead"

"You'll find one in every car. You'll see" - From "Repo Man" (funny thing is, that statement is SO true!)

I could go on and on and on. Of course, ask me this question tomorrow and my answers might be completely different.

6. What if it happened. All of creation is gone. Wiped out. And then come to find out that that there is no reincarnation, no chance to live life over again, no second chance. Turned out, there really was a God and Heaven and Hell. How would that make you feel? Do you want to go to Heaven?

Loaded question isn't it? It presumes that one believes in reincarnation or some sort of continuation after death. But since we ARE going to play pretend and make believe this morning. Why don't we just pretend that life is forever and that nothing and nobody ever dies? You know, a very good movie actually sort of addresses this question, it's called 'The Rapture' (starred Mimi Rogers and David Duchovny if I recall.) I highly recommend it.

7. Should everyone be allowed into Heaven? Or should there be criteria? If you were making up the guest list for Heaven, how would you choose who gets in?

I don't believe in heaven or hell, so I really can't answer this question.

BONUS Wot's it to ya?

I see through ya
you only want something that you can't get.
