Unplugging from the Stream

Questions tonight are …
What is your favorite time of day? Why?

Questions from last night were:
What was your favorite food when you were little? Is it still your favorite?  Was there a food that you couldn’t stand that you like now?  Any foods that you didn’t like then and never will?

Questions from night before last were:
Did you ever threaten, or even prepare, to run away from home when you were a kid?  Do you remember why?  Did you pack anything?  Did you make it out of the house, and if so, how far did you get?

I’m gonna pile all of these answers into one long post soon – maybe this weekend, or maybe I’ll just dole them out … not certain yet, but I’m definitely enjoying your answers and participation 🙂

Previous question that I will eventually answer  😉
Have you ever been given a present that you hated/disliked? What was it?  Who gave it to you? What was the occasion? How did you react – could they tell that you didn’t like it?

I have an opportunity tonight to go to be … like … now.  I’m taking it.  I have a lot to catch up on this weekend, and I’ll be adding a lot to my blog.  I’ve analyzed my work and sleep patterns, determined a few things that aren’t working, and I want to outline those in case my observations and ideas can help someone else 🙂

Today is now day 30 (YAY!!! It’s Halloween Eve!!!) of my favorite month which culminates, as I’ve mentioned many, many times now, in my favorite holiday of Halloween, and my next Halloween themed image can be seen below …

Have a great night, fellow Pressers, and sweet dream 🙂

Questions from last night were:
If you could have been a child prodigy what would you have wanted to be skilled at? Why?

I really wanted to play the piano but I hated practicing, and I was a good singer. I had no idea how to pursue becoming a professional singer, though, so I never pursued that. I was NOT, however, a child prodigy, and I don’t think that I would have chosen that. I think that if I were to choose now, that I would have chosen to be a Math or Physics prodigy … or a mind-reader, or empath … either of those would have been both a curse and a blessing, but think of how far someone who can consistently demonstrate either mind-reading, true empathy, or both could take us in the study of our brains and future capabilities!!!

Previous question that I will eventually answer 😉
Have you ever been given a present that you hated/disliked? What was it? Who gave it to you? What was the occasion? How did you react – could they tell that you didn’t like it?

I felt wide-awake and alert almost all day at work today again, but by the time I got home, I was falling over tired and took a nap. I woke up at 1:15am, did a quick homework assignment, and now I’m here doing my final post for the day.

The time change should help me a bit because that will be a two rather than three hour difference, so I won’t be working at such extremes in school. Yes, I KNOW that I should set an arbitrary time to be my deadline, but it doesn’t matter if I try to do that … I still KNOW that my assignments aren’t due until 2:00 or 3:00am, and I end up being on that schedule while trying to work on Eastern time … it’s interesting and has been a bit difficult to adjust to, but I’m getting there 🙂

Today is now day 28 (YAY!!!) of my favorite month which culminates, as I’ve mentioned many, many times now, in my favorite holiday of Halloween, and my next Halloween themed image can be seen below …

Have a great night, fellow Pressers, and sweet, batty dreams to you all 🙂

Questions tonight are …
Have you ever made a prank call or calls?  How old were you?  Were you with friends?  What were the pranks?

Question from last night was:
What exciting places have you visited or vacationed?

I’ve been to Canada, although it was just a shopping trip.  New York for the G+ HIRL was pretty awesome, Washington, D.C. was fun, but I think that New Orleans was my favorite vacation to date. I think that it’s my favorite place in the world to date, and I hope to retire there, but I have a lot of places on my bucket list to get to first 🙂

Previous question that I will still not answer – maybe tomorrow 😉
Have you ever been given a present that you hated/disliked? What was it?  Who gave it to you? What was the occasion? How did you react – could they tell that you didn’t like it?

I never got a nap in today, but I got up REALLY late, so I’m ok with that.

… how long do eggs stay good?  …

Today is now day 26 (YAY!!!) of my favorite month which culminates, as I’ve mentioned many, many times now, in my favorite holiday of Halloween, and my next Halloween themed image can be seen below …

Day 64 – Unplugging from the Stream

I had work all day yesterday after not sleeping much the night before, and then had a 3-hour class at the end of the day.

When I got home, I barely made it into the bed before I was asleep. I did manage to set an alarm to wake me up after 2 hours, and I asked my kids to see that I got up before midnight to post, but it was no use … I couldn’t move.

Questions tonight are …
What was the apartment or house like that you grew up in? How many bedrooms did it have? Bathrooms? What was your bedroom like?

My answers to the night before last’s questions
What cartoons did you watch/like best growing up? Were Saturday morning cartoons your favorite part of the week?

As I mentioned last night, last Saturday was the end of an era, and the first week since about forever ago that the main networks didn’t show cartoons on Saturday morning.

I used to get up ridiculously early on Saturday mornings to catch Casper.  He came on at 6:30 or 7:30am, and if I got up too early, then I had an interminable wait staring at the fuzzy screen until the channel came alive 15 minutes before.  I watched the Superfriends at 11:30am (not sure why that stuck), The New Schmoo was on at 10L00am, I think, and there was Johnny Quest, Scooby Do, and Hong King Phooey, and Bugs Bunny, and Land of the Lost (not a cartoon, but c’mon), The Pink Panther, Underdog, H.R. Puffinstuff  (yes, I am admitting this publicly), The Jetsons, Mr. Magoo, Shazam, Sigmund and the Seamonster, Captain Caveman, that thing with Lamb Chop … whew … this is NOT an exhaustive list … but man – that was the highlight of my week to get to watch all of these, and sometimes I would flip back and forth because I couldn’t decide which one to watch.

When I was a little older I watched G-force, Speed Racer, Two Stupid Dogs, and many more, and my all-time favorite was Underdog when I was little, and later on The Tick 😀

I took a marathon nap again today,  although much shorter than yesterday.  I am definitely splitting my days up with a long nap, work, another long nap, homework/posts/stuff around the house. I was incredibly productive at work today, and that always feels good.  I struggled, however, with my homework assignment, and I was two minutes late with it   My freaking internet went out again, and the 5 minutes that I had to spend getting that back up and running literally put me 2 minutes over the deadline.  Grrrr

Yeah, I know that I shouldn’t be cutting it so close, but dangit – I had it ready to submit and the connection dropped.  How do you plan ahead for shit like that?

… gonna end up throwing the stupid eggs away …

Today is now day 20 (YAY!!!) of my favorite month which culminates, as I’ve mentioned many, many times now, in my favorite holiday of Halloween, and my next Halloween themed ANIMATED photo can be seen below …

I stopped to snap this on the way home, and then I kept not being happy with the processing, so I tried again, and again, and again until I had seven versions.  At that point I couldn’t decide which one I liked best, so I just animated the lot, and shared them all 🙂 Turns out that those don’t work here, so I changed to the static images …

Have a great night, fellow Pressers, and many sweet dreams 🙂

I’m coming back to add a most excellent Halloween image, but that’s all.  I had my very own series of unfortunate events yesterday, and I finally had to give up on trying to post.  I was having issues with my internet at home, so I started using my wifi Hotspot on my iPhone, and lo and behold it bit the dust … apparently that iOS 8.whatever update fried my phone just like it has a bunch of other folks’.  I tried two different local haunts, but they were so crowded, that the wifi was worthless with all of those devices eating up the bandwidth. so I finally gave up, and came home to go to bed.  I was even late getting my first discussion question turned in in my new class, but sometimes, there just isn’t anything that you can do … plans A, B, C, AND D went south, and I didn’t have a plan E.  I suppose that I could have kept trying, but I was still running around at 1:00am trying to find a viable connection, and I was too tired to continue the hunt.  Even if I lost ALL of the points on this discussion, it’s only 18 out of 1000 overall points, so it wouldn’t kill me, but I’m guessing that I will lose only 2 or 3.

New post coming up soon for tonight now that I’m reconnected to the interwebz 🙂
