 Another prompt. (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Imagination Prompt Generator:
Name three people you last e-mailed, and why.

1. A stranger - For genealogy information.
2. A friend - For game information.
3. A friend - For movie information.

Pretty vague but nothing interesting about any of it.

 The Imagination Prompt Generator (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Imagination Prompt Generator:
Name three things you are grateful for.

1. Despite living on various military bases, I am thankful that my childhood was pretty much stable. My parents never had any nasty arguments or anything like that. I feel that I am extremely lucky in this area.

2. My closest friend. Even though I have found some old friends through the net, I found that we've changed way too much and I haven't kept in contact with a single one after finding them! My closest friend knows a lot about me that no one else does and I just don't see this friendship ending in any possible way except 'drifting apart' but we chat way too much for that to happen.

3. And of course, the obligatory food mentioning. French Fries. Whoever was the very first person to stare at a potato and said, "They should be cut into little sticks. I bet they'd taste good with some ketchup!" deserves a big gift basket.

 Writing Prompt (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
A Writing Prompt from Writer's Digest:
Forrest Gump once said, "Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're going to get." What is writing like? Write a simile that starts with the phrase, "Writing is like ... ."

Writing is like having a thousand muses as friends. They're either telling you tons of story ideas at once and nothing fits or they're too busy arguing amongst themselves leaving you staring at a blank page...

 He was my best friend but... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
"Write about a situation where your best friend was dishonest or outright lied to you. Did it change your friendship?"

Oo, I like this topic here. If I roll my mind allll the way back to childhood, I had a best friend while living at this one place. We were the closest of friends when compared to anyone else. I thought he would never lie to me or anything. While he was looking through my baseball card collection, I told him that he could help himself to any duplicates he finds. I was playing a video game while he was looking through my cards.

Later, I found out through a friend that he had come through, boasting about taking all of my best cards. I confronted him and he didn't deny it! What made it even worse was that he refused to give the cards back. Needless to say, I no longer trusted him even though he acted like we were still friends. It wasn't long after that I had a different best friend.

Ha! Kids. image

 Every choice creates a new parallel universe... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
I was chatting with a friend and the topic came up where there was a theory that every choice you make will create a parallel universe where you made the other choice instead. This would mean there are vast amounts of universes where there are so many possibilities. It would explain dopplegangers where two lines would overlap momentarily or whatever else... I don't know. On and on and all that gibberish.

It's just hard to believe that every choice would create a parallel universe. If someone held out a blue ball and a green ball, I'd always go for the blue ball. No doubt about it. There is no way that a parallel universe would stem out to where I chose the green ball instead.

I imagine something like that would only happen if you were faced with a decision where you could go either way but you're stuck on the fence and you're struggling. "What do I do? What do I do??" ... and bam, parallel universe where you went the other way.

I guess it makes me wonder about things that I've chosen to do or didn't choose to do and what resulted from them... Was it better? Or did it get worse? I could use one of those nifty mirrors where I could ask, "What if I......"

1. Pyramids
2. Stonehenge

Hawaii seems bleh in comparison but I suppose it's been so common that I should at least list it as a place to visit myself one day. hehe.

 If I had a super power... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Okay, I know. I'm really grasping at straws here but I am terrible at trying to update this blog daily. Sort of a personal challenge I've set for myself to see if I can't blog every day for the month of November. Anyhow, on with the topic...

If I had a super power, I would have the power to change my body at will. I know one thing would be to use it for evil - rob a bank with one look and then walk away scot-free with a new look. I don't know. I just think it'd be neat. I guess this might be 'shapeshifter' but they seem to be labeled for beings that change to animal form. I'm not quite sure...

But there you have it. My one super power that I desire.

 When my soul opened up to music... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous

For the first half of my life, I couldn't relate to music at all. Every Christmas my siblings would get huge stereos, cassette players, cd changers, etc. My face would turn green with envy when I watched them tear away the wrapping paper and get something big and fantastic!

One Christmas around the time that I was twelve, I had had enough. I threw a fit...

"How come I never get a stereo?! Why does everyone else get one?!"

My mother stopped me in my tracks with just one question.

"What do you listen to?"

"I... ... ... ... don't know." Just like that, in that one second, the ugly green beast let out a dying roar as he dissipated into nothingness. I don't listen to music. It's strange how it takes one question to end something that's been building up for years. With that thought, I packed away 'music' as something that would never touch my soul. Years would pass...

Until AQUA's "Barbie Girl". I remember there was a huge deal about AQUA being sued because of their song. It was everywhere! I took the time to listen to the song to find out what the big deal was. I found myself... oddly... enjoying it. The beats, the vocals, the peppiness. I was compelled enough that I bought the album to hear what the rest of the songs were like. I think I still have the album somewhere...

That's what put me on the path to discover Dance/Electronica/Trance/Etc. I can't explain it... The beats, the vocals, the... I don't know... It was like music had finally found a hidden entrance to enter my soul and make me feel alive! - If I could be cheesy for a moment. hehe.

I still remember the surprised look on my parents' face when I asked for a cd player for Christmas. They were hesitant but finally went ahead and bought me my very first stereo with a 5 cd changer on top. Needless to say, I played so much music on that thing that it broke in less than a year...

I guess I'll take this moment to say... Thanks AQUA. image

 Anime and the likes... (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
I'm not really fond of anime but there's been some shows and movies that have really been fascinating. I never heard of "Adult Swim" on Cartoon Network until a friend told me to switch channels so that I could watch "Case Closed" because he knew I liked Sherlock Holmes. I watched a few episodes and I was hooked.

I started watching InuYasha that came on before Case Closed but when Adult Swim dumped CC, I found that I wasn't interested in InuYasha at all. I was just watching the show only because it was on before CC.

He also got me to watch FullMetal Alchemist. Wow. That was an awesome series. He then encouraged me to watch some movies. Whisper of the Heart, The Cat Returns, Porco Rosso, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, etc...

I really enjoyed them. The stories were nice and all. Then I was encouraged to make that scary step into the endless series... You know, having to watch 7 or 8 DVDs. Oy. I did finally cave and watched.... Last Exile! I finished the final (7th) DVD a few days ago. The first two DVDs were boring but the story was unfolding and I thought it was pretty neat during it all.

Now I'm wondering if I oughta make a leap and pick another series to watch. Hmm...

 Favorite Candy to get on Halloween (Permalink)
Topic: Miscellaneous
Halloween is tomorrow night! Unfortunately, I'm way too old to go running around in a costume. I suppose I could pretend to be a GIANT with little Jack dangling off my shoulder but I imagine most people will refuse to pass out the candy. *smirks*

My favorite would have to be chocolate. Chocolates of any kind. Hershey kisses, Tootsie rolls, Peanut butter cups, M&Ms, etc.

My least favorites are hard candies such as lollipops and whatnot. Even Tootsie Pops fell under this category.

The candy that I absolutely loathed with a passion and were often tossed out because no one would eat them: black licorice or black jelly beans! Ugh.
