Then I went to look at 'My Details' imagining all the little witticisms I could embed in my answers, but no... No, no, I only get to choose from limited options... The only answer I'm really happy with is 'Education'.
Okay, so here's my first pass at answers:
Diet: Leaning toward paleo locavore at the moment
Religion: "This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you" -Hafiz
Job: This week involves too much concern about a cash flow forecast.
Offspring: No, but I have three beautiful nieces and a beautiful goddaughter, and the older ones just want money for Christmas, but the younger ones still love those magical gifts in big boxes. Though when I was in Toys R Us I was so excited about all the cool toys for little boys and was feeling some longing...
Ahhh, that's a little better... I think I was a little claustrophobic in here at first. I just needed a little more room to spread out.
So... After my initial mildly traumatic confrontation with the 'Questions' here, I did go back and answer some of the easier questions. Now I have my little flowchart back from OkCupid that handily boils down all the complexity and nuance of whom I'd date down to three issues: doesn't do hard drugs, won't make me watch horror movies, and won't force me to eat only bean sprouts and squash.
Now this could be depressing, having the critical decision-making junctures of my psyche mapped out into a flowchart by a robot, but I'm choosing to view it this way: I'm really open-minded about whom I'd date! Other than a few picky little items--the horror movie issue being most important--I'm pretty easy-going.
Anyway, so I'm listening to the radio yesterday, when the latest Bruno Mars song comes on. And I'm just about to change the station (because come on, who likes Bruno Mars?) when I come to the embarrassing and undeniable realization that I love Bruno Mars! And as I sit there, ashamed and bemused, trying to figure out how this could possibly be, I realized how it could be--the part of me that loves Bruno Mars is the same part of me that loves Journey.
And, yes, I understand--Steve Perry is one of those singers that people either love or hate--rarely is anyone luke-warm. Thus, my hesitation in admitting this publicly.
I'm still sort of stunned, honestly...
