Disappointment and getting tagged

>> Thursday, February 23, 2006

I just read where Sasha Cohen fell twice in her free skate program and had to settle for the silver. I won't ruin any of the rest of it for those of you who were planning to watch tonight, but I won't get to watch because I have rehearsals for the Mozart Coronation Mass from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.

Steph tagged me so I have to answer these questions. I have to admit, this is one of the more interesting ones.

  1. Black and White or Color; how do you prefer your movies?
    It all depends on the movie! I don't think that I could watch It's a Wonderful Life in color, but what would The Wizard of Oz have been without that beautiful burst of color when Dorothy emerged from her house into the technicolor land of Oz?!

  2. What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death?
    Sports...I'm not a sports fan. I like to watch some of the events in the Olympics, but when it comes to basketball, football, etc. I could really care less. That's probably due to the days of when I was married to an absolute sports fanatic and was literally a sports widow. Let's put it this way, on our first wedding anniversary, my then husband decided that he would rather watch the NCAA basketball tournament on TV rather than spending the evening making love to his young wife.

  3. MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: what is your favorite medium for prerecorded music?
    I've not heard enough MP3s to make a decision about them. I like CD's because they're so clear and they don't scratch like records did. But I do miss the acoustics of vinyl.

  4. You are handed one first class trip plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going ... Ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run?
    I'd do it for sure! I would take the money and leave Steph $250,000 in cash and a note saying, "You know where I am. Follow me!" Steph would know that I went to Vienna and would meet up with me at the Cafe Diglas at 3:00pm a few days later! Then Steph would tell everyone where we are. No rules say that friends or family can't find you and tell everyone else!

  5. Seriously, what do you consider the world's most pressing issue now?
    I would have to agree with Steph and Lynn on this one--Education. Without Education we can't even begin to touch the rest of the problems.

  6. How would you rectify the world's most pressing issue?
    I would begin by being better educated myself and then passing my knowledge on to the people with whom I come in contact.

  7. You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be?
    Wow! That's a hard one because I believe that everything that happens to a person in life, happens for a reason. I've made some bad choices, that's for sure, but they are all a part of who I am now. I would probably go back to my senior year in high school. I would be more persistent with my parents concerning my desire to have a career as an opera singer and I would pursue that more insistently.

  8. You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be?
    I would have the first assassination attempt of Hitler be successful.

  9. A night at the opera, or a night at the Grand Ole' Opry—Which do you choose?
    I think that answer is pretty obvious! Duh!

  10. What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you'd like to solve?
    The late 19th century London "Jack the Ripper" murders.

  11. One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal?
    It would be Ralf Waldo Emerson. I love his transcendentalist philosophies and ideals. I would serve a very simple meal consisting of a herb roasted chicken and stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn bread, and cherry pie for dessert.

  12. You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky—what's the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact?
    I like what Steph said and completely agree: I wouldn't do anything any differently. My morality isn't based on reward and punishment, not in the way the question means. I don't believe in heaven and hell in the usual sense; I believe we create them and carry them around with us every day of our lives...and beyond.
I tag Liz, Lauren, and aka_monty.
