Speaking as I am just out of childhood, I do still have many toys from my childhood, such as my swan toys. They are special because they are hard to find and I like swans :)

What would it take for you to consider cheating on your SO?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

How much money am I raking in? If I am clocking 100s of millions or billions I would have a home in a noisy place. I would be rich enough for superior sound proofing when I wasn’t off visiting some quieter place. Just because I live there don’t mean I can’t travel from there often.

Do you have any pets?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Umm….I have heard a lot of bad pickup lines. One that stands out at this moment is ”someone call the police, your beauty is killing me”, well there was ”Lets get you out of those uncomfortable close, and get a comfortable me inside you”.

Do you find this one of the more refreshing threads here on Fluther in a good long while?

MilkyWay's avatar

You know what? Yeah, I do.
Why didn’t @Hypocrisy_Central answer my question?

Got any tips for PCs?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Take that monster of a hard drive and partition it into smaller logical drives. Then when a virus attacks and is successful and you have to reinstall, etc, the stuff you have on the logical drive that is not your C: drive would not be lost. It also makes defragging quicker.

How frisky have you ever gotten in a near empty theater after the lights have gone out and the show has started?

Bellatrix's avatar

Quite frisky actually… I told you I went to see the Abba movie. I lied. I attended the Abba movie. Didn’t see any of it. I think it is fun to be a little playful in the cinema when the lights are down.

Bellatrix's avatar

I have so many favourite pieces of music @28lorelei. I really can’t say. It could be a classical piece like Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez or Barber’s Adagio for Strings right now, but later it might be The Who’s My Generation or Sanata’s Black Magic Woman or Dusty Springfield singing the Look of Love with that smoky voice. I have really eclectic taste.

Is there a teacher from your past that really impacted on where you are with your life today? Tell us about them.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

My high school art teacher Mrs. Mary Kelso inspired me greatly. She not only dished out proper etiquette but got me to really look and explore art. She also taught me the subtle tricks to take a blab la painting or drawing and make it stand out. Also, how to create art for the viewer and not just myself.

Have you ever been groped in a crowed swimming pool, be it a water park, school, health club, private pool party, etc, and how long ago was it?

Coloma's avatar

Not recently, but, one of my fondest memories was a late night pool party for two, my boyfriend and I from about a zillion years ago.

It was THE night I FINALLY seduced him in the deep end. lol

Are you easy going or a high stress type?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I am easy going, I am like TNT, a very long slow running fuse but when you get to the end, a blast you do not want to be near when it goes off.

Have you ever boycotted anyone’s Q&A here on Fluther because you disagree with them?

Bellatrix's avatar

No. I see certain people’s names and my nose will crinkle, but I will read their responses and if I think it is a good answer, I will reward them for it. Likewise, I would not ignore an interesting question because I disagree with the person. Life is way too short @Hypo.

AshLeigh's avatar

Why didn’t @Bellatrix put a new question? :O

Bellatrix's avatar

Because I am silly!

Have you ever forgotten to do something really important and what was the outcome?

MilkyWay's avatar

I once forgot to feed my little sister her milk. The outcome was me having to face the music.
I truly deserved it.
What do you do if one of your friends is seriously ill?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I let them know I am there, I help them when i visit them, and I pray for them and their recovery.

You have an important bill you have to pay, but leaving the ATM three thugs approach you demanding money, what would you do?

MilkyWay's avatar

I’d scream a Karate scream and take a Kung Fu stance… whilst aiming my pistol at them.
What is the definition of ‘Troll’ ?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

A mythical creature that lives under bridges and extract toll from unsuspecting passer bys, or lives in the cellar banging the pipes. A dishonest person with shady dealings, seeking to life off people on the grift.

How many times have you had a bike stolen?

Bellatrix's avatar

Never.

Have you ever had your purse or wallet lifted and where did this happen (which city/situation)?

jonsblond's avatar

I was in Tijuana with two friends of mine for a night of partying during Spring Break. A group of local kids surrounded us trying to sell us necklaces or something like that. One of the young boys grabbed all the money I had in my hand and ran off. (I was carrying everyone’s money because I was the only one with a purse. I took the money out because my friend wanted to buy something). btw- I hate Tijuana now

Where are you most ticklish?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Fast to be my feet. When anyone other than me touches them, I can’t sit still.

When you die, how many zeros do you want to have behind you as the asset you leave to loved ones?

MilkyWay's avatar

Hmm, 4000.
Have you got any siblings and are you close to them?

gailcalled's avatar

I have one sister whom I love and had a brother whom I also loved. I believe that they love (d) me.

What are you reading now that you would recommend to the collective?

Tropical_Willie's avatar

EDITED

Question was traveling slow.

MilkyWay's avatar

Currently, I have my nose in the ‘Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’.
What question will you ask me when you PM me?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Are you old enough to answer NSFW questions?

If you have the last two chicken eggs on the planets but was starving you you make an omelet with them?

MilkyWay's avatar

I’d eat one and save one. And yeah, I guess I am old enought to answer NSFW Qs, I have done in the past.
Where on earth do you live?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

On the fringe of the Bay Area in California, formor land of the “Governator”.

Should I ask you a NSFW question, and should it be a PM or in open forum?

MilkyWay's avatar

LOL! No comment ;)
Do you think @Hypocrisy_Central is immensely funny?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I could answer that but I think I would wait.

Do you think @Hypocrisy_Central is immensely funny, _______, ________, or ________, perhaps all the above?

MilkyWay's avatar

Do you think @Hypocrisy_Central is immensely funny, sarcastic, lovable, or annoying perhaps all the above?
All of the above.
Do you like cooking?

sakura's avatar

I do enjoy cooking especially when I havthe time to relax whilst Im doing it. Mostly I have to rush about which isnt as.much fun!

Do you think it is right that supermarkets sell a soft drink that tastes like a lager shandy?

OpryLeigh's avatar

I certainly don’t think it is wrong! I can think of plenty of things that I disagree with but that’s not something I even give any thought!

What was the name of the last restaurant you dined at?

Bellatrix's avatar

Well it wasn’t really a restaurant… more a cafe… yesterday. The Brook Cafe.

How often do you eat out? And is this mostly for breakfast, lunch or dinner?

Coloma's avatar

Probably 3–4 times a month, lunch and dinner, rarely breakfast.
Mostly takeout, less restaurants lately.

What was your favorite breakfast cereal when you were a kid?

AshLeigh's avatar

Honey Bunches Of Oats, FTW!

How many of the 50 states have you visited/lived in?

AshLeigh's avatar

Two…. O.o Alaska, and Washington. :)
What was the last thing you read? (Besides this)

Bellatrix's avatar

A book called Sister.

Did you have dancing lessons when you were a child?

Vunessuh's avatar

Yes, I took jazz, tap and ballet and participated in a few dance recitals from about 4–6 years old.

Are you good friends with any of your neighbors?

Bellatrix's avatar

No! I don’t know any of them. I was thinking about that this morning. I think I mentioned this here once before but I would love to hold a bbq or a morning tea and get everyone together. I think part of the problem in the UK is we have lost our sense of community. We need to get to know our neighbours and care about each other again.

Have you ever organised a community event and how did it go?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Only if it was a mass suicide and I was conspicuously late or a no-show. Since it wan’t that, no, I have not oranized one.

When was the last time you were buggered by a male, female, male and female at the same time?

Bellatrix's avatar

WTF @Hypocrisy_Central? I am getting worried about you…

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Don’t worry, I am probably certifiably daffy.

Knowing that would you trust me to pilot your motorcoash on a narrow mountain road n the rain?

Bellatrix's avatar

Hmmm, not sure. Being a little eccentric doesn’t make you a bad driver. Have to see you on the road first :-)

TJBM rides a motorbike.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I don’t know if that was a questiuon or not…......so….......

sakura's avatar

Hey @Bellatrix wrong thread!!!

I used to ride a motorbike…a bmw 650z but I had to be practical an sell it so I could afford to get new flooring for my hallway and kitchen :(

Have you ever had to sacrifice.something you love for.practical reasons?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I am sure I have, but I have so many time, it is hard to lock down one incidence.

When did you have your 15min of fame? And how did you spend it?

AshLeigh's avatar

Lololol. <—- I just abbreviated, instead of just saying “Haha.” this is a big deal!
I spend a lot of time holding “Impeach Obama Now” signs with The Impeach Obama Guy In Downtown Palmer. (Google him)
And people HATE me for it. :)
Today, after my sign holding time, I spent my fifteen minutes arguing with a woman, who thinks I don’t know what I’m talking about. I called her a dirty hippy, and that my mom says not to talk to strangers. :D:D:D It was fun.
Note: I don’t want to have an argument. Like him, or hate him. That’s your choice.
Do you like Obama?

Bellatrix's avatar

lol@wrong thread… sighs… thank goodness it is Friday…. My husband has a BMW 750 I think? Thank you for the heads up about the question @sakura.

@AshLeigh. I do like Obama. I think being outside the US we perhaps view things quite differently. For me to see the reforms to your health care and the like seems important. I don’t vote in the US though and so I am not aware of all that is happening at a grassroots level in your country.

Do you know who Julia Gillard is without using Google?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Is she that chic from Parangaricutirimicuaro?

How do you handle the situation when your underwear gets in a bunch?

Bellatrix's avatar

I will try to straighten it up… subtly if I can though. Although… we had tradies in the house recently and I got ready to go out and my undies were just not sitting right .. so I went into the dining room ..and started rearranging in a none to ladylike fashion. My husband was there and suddenly started laughing out loud and when I turned around there was one of the floor layers walking up the hallway and there was no way he didn’t see me! Far out… a warning would have been nice!!

Do you fart in public? (I blame @Hypo… he started down this road).

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Bahahaha Bahahahah Haaaaaaaahahahaha! I always get the blame, but at least they hear me though. I only fart if I really can’t contain it and usually only in the open air or large space. If that can’t be done, I do a “drive by” stinky, and move on. Then it will get blamed on someone standing around there.

Have you ever seen a homeless woman bathing in a public fountain and remover her top for a quick boobie wash when she thought no one was looking?

Facade's avatar

No, can’t say that I have.

Have you ever been chased by a shitload of ducks?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Never been chased by ducks, I can’t remember being chased by any animals, less a dog or two in the past maybe.

Do you ever workout in the nude?

Facade's avatar

Sometimes I’ll do yoga naked…

Do you like Indie music?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I am not sure what that is, I like Indie films a lot though.

Have you ever had a partner fall asleep on you in the middle of sex?

OpryLeigh's avatar

No.

What are you plans for the weekend?

28lorelei's avatar

I’m going fishing Saturday and shopping Sunday.

What are you doing once your summer vacation ends (if you are still on vacation?)

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Good question. Pay bills, train a kitten, clean, do laundry, watch a movie, Fluther, try to finish my Spring cleaning of 2007, watch some Netflix, boink, more Fluther hopefuly make some money.

Are their any nude pics of you floating around the Internet that you know of?

Facade's avatar

I wouldn’t doubt it, but only the semi-nude ones show my face.

Do you have a good sense of time?

AmWiser's avatar

Yeah, pretty much, even though these days time has no meaning for me. But one thing I can’t ignor is even if I never saw a calendar or lost track of what day it was, I would always know it’s August 1st. That’s when the crickets start to chirp.

What kind of art is hanging on your walls?

MilkyWay's avatar

My own :D
Do you enjoy painting?

AmWiser's avatar

Sorry@MilkyWay I was composing in notepad:D
Yes! I have dabbled a little.
Have you ever been fired from a job?

MilkyWay's avatar

Nope.
Do you think you’d make a good babysitter?

Bellatrix's avatar

Yes, but I don’t want to do any babysitting unless it is for any future grandchildren. I hope my children do procreate when they are older though. I can’t wait to read all those kids books again and watch children’s movies with them and walk in the park and kick leaves etc. etc.

In what ways do you demonstrate your creative side?

MilkyWay's avatar

Usually through painting, sometimes dancing and drawing.
Would you be a good stand-up comedian?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I would hope to think, people always said I as a cut-up. If I wanted them to laugh, they wouldn’t. The mosat time I would get a big laugh si if I would ask for a raise, a loan, or sex from a pretty woman, then the laughing would never stop.

If you seen a big spider, roach, chricket, etc and it was about to escape under furniture, would you use your bare hand to smash it, to prevent the escape?

jonsblond's avatar

Nope. I don’t kill spiders or crickets. I let them outside. I’ll grab a shoe for a roach though.

Would you rather live by the ocean, a lake or a river. Pick one

Bellatrix's avatar

The ocean. It is one of my most fervent desires. To live in a house where I can see the ocean and hear the waves at night. Not sure I will ever be wealthy enough to achieve my goal but I will keep it with me as something to aim for.

If you have children, is there one thing you would do differently if you could start your parenting journey again? If you don’t have children, what one thing do you hope to keep in mind when and if you take on that role?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

That the little nippers WILL mess up and botch something no matter how much I treach them not to, and to know that when I see it.

Would you ever let a teen-aged runaway crash on your sofe for anight or two?

Coloma's avatar

Doubtful, it would be dependent on a number of things. If they were someones kid I knew, maybe, but, they’d have to let their parents know they were okay and where they were for me to agree. A stranger doubly doubtful.

Who do you know that is over the age of 80?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

The pastor and his wife.

When was the last time you had your “salad tossed”, or you “tossed someone’s salad”, if you ever did?

28lorelei's avatar

I had my salad tossed by my mom the last time, which was yesterday.
Which do you think are better, Apples or PCs?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I think you missed the wrong “salad” Hee hee hee

I think Apple is better for simplicity and creativity but range of applications and business prowess PCs.

If given a Lamborghini Murcielago would you keep it or sell it?

OpryLeigh's avatar

Sell it. Those things look ugly to me so I’d rather take the cash!

Do you have any serious allergies?

AshLeigh's avatar

Pineapples!
Do you like Zucchini Bread? I love it so much!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

You said the wrong thing, “zucchini” that is a deal killer right there, won’t go near it.

Which kids are better off, those home schooled or those in class rooms at public schools?

Coloma's avatar

I think it’s fine to homeschool the first few grades, or at various other times for various reasons, but, kids need to blend and learn social skills in group settings, and how to interact with peers.
I raised my daughter in a rural environment but she went to the local public schools as well.
She was an only child and I felt she needed the social factor.

Best of both worlds. :-)

What kind of day are you having today?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

The day I am having is all [redacted], more like [redacted], I could say [redacted]. To keep it PG lets just say the highlight was I woke up and even that is debateable.

If camp counselors know kids are sneaking off from their cabins after dark to go boink in the woods, should they say just teens sewing their wild oats, or rat them out?

Coloma's avatar

Well, ‘sneaking’ might be one or two, but, if it’s the whole herd of camp kids in heat, kinda too obvious to ignore. One would have to find a way to stop the stampede or run them over a cliff. Thinking a Gary Larsen cartoon in this somewhere. lol

Have you ever almost drowned?

AshLeigh's avatar

Several times. I didn’t learn to swim until like two weeks ago.
About how much water do you drink in a day?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

A day? You said a day? Ummmmmm…..can we go with month? My liquid intake comes by Coke, 7up, milk (mostly chocolate to keep my color up), and a small amount of coffee. I do maybe get in quart to one litre a month.

If you seen some young punk snatch a purse from an old lady and he was headed in your direction, would you attempt to tackle him?

Bellatrix's avatar

Probably. I can be a bit reckless. Probably wouldn’t be a wise move but I would give it a go.

What is the best type of holiday for you? A cruise? A road trip? A beach holiday? Visiting friends? Something else (what is this something else)?

jonsblond's avatar

Cabin on a northwoods lake.

Do you like black licorice?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I have had it before, I can’t remember if I liked it, but I didn’t think I hated it as many do.

Why are there not as many male ballet dancers as females?

Coloma's avatar

It’s a mystery. Maybe it’s a career thing.
‘Should I be a ballet dancer or an attorney? lol

Who wants ice cream!?
What flavor?

Bellatrix's avatar

Dark chocolate and a scoop of jaffa ice cream too.

Do you think most people would benefit from visiting a life coach?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I would say they are better off taking drugs. If the life coach was logical as I am it might do them a world of good. For the most part I think they will get some emotional driven hack.

Who is more responsible for the dying economy, the President, the Senate, or Congress?

Coloma's avatar

Santa Claus and the tooth fairy.

Clearly only they have the ability to balance the national debt.

Are you a night owl or a morning person?

OpryLeigh's avatar

My state of mind is usually much more at peace during the evening/night so from that sense I am a night owl. Mornings are difficult for me as I am usually very anxious and it takes a while for me to feel calm. However, I am not a night owl in the sense that I don’t stay up until the wee small hours. I am usually in bed, sleeping by midnight.

Do you prefer dry roasted or salted peanuts?

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Dry Roasted.. . .

Have you ever gone to a pig roast or pig pickin’?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No, at Cinco de Mayo I almost went with my neighbor, but no.

Ever been stung by a jellyfish at the beach?

AshLeigh's avatar

I live in Alaska… The nearest beach is 100 miles away, and going to be covered in snow most in a month or two. :( So, no…
If you could take two animals, and make them into one, what two animals would it be?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I would cross and elephant with an armadillo for an elephadillo, a big beast with armor plating to thwart off poachers better.

Had your vehicle ever caught fire and burned up? If it caught fire, did it do so while you were in it?

Bellatrix's avatar

We used to own a really old Mini. On the way to work one morning, in traffic, there was suddenly smoke coming out of the engine. We had to pull over and that was really the end of the Mini!

How well can you type?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Way better than I did when I was in high school. I might be up to 35 maybe 40wpm, I have not been tested in 20yr but those whom I IM with say I type pretty fast.

Have you ever fell asleep with a pot on the stove or something in the oven?

Coloma's avatar

Haha, yep, a few times, usually when I had too much wine before dinner.
well, a LATE, like 9 0’ clock dinner, it’s a seasonal hazard. lol
I’ve caught myself on fire too. ;-p

Are you collecting any seeds in your garden or yard right now?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Never had a garden, and unless I can have one that has a money tree, probably never will.

Why are more people not curious about asking questions?

MilkyWay's avatar

Because they haven’t got time to wonder about things? I dunno.
Do you miss talking to someone you used to talk to a lot before?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

The person I miss talking to the most is my mother, GRHS, aside from that, my good friend Richard who now lives out of state.

If you have to choose being famous where you were a household name but not particularly rich, or wealthy enough that if you didn’t own it, was because you didn’t want it, but no one knew you. Which would you choose?

Lightlyseared's avatar

Rich and anonymous. Perfect.

What is your alcoholic beverage of choice?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

The one I don’t touch unless pouring it down a drain.

Garment makers manufacturing thongs for six to eight year olds, good, bad, or just tasteless?

Facade's avatar

Bad.

Favorite herb to smoke?

Coloma's avatar

I rarely smoke, but I do like my herbal brownies a few times a year. ;-)

Will you be going to bed early tonight? I will, 2 hours til dark and I am there! lol

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Hardly, I might not get to bed until 2am PST.

Will this thread get to 300 responses?

Coloma's avatar

Probably.
@Hypocrisy_Central

I did 2 am last night, hence the sunset bedtime tonight. haha

Do you want to see the Scrabble thread activated again?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Yes, I liked that thread, it was one of the more enjoyable actually.

What is your highest real world Scrabble score?

sakura's avatar

never really played scrabble seriously in the real world…last time was probably with my daughter and we play for counters, rather than points. another vote here for the scrabble thread

Do you think Regaine for men actually works?

No but I would love to.

Have you ever watched Heartland?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No, and I think i would care to in the future.

Have you ever seen Pink Floyd live in concert?

AmWiser's avatar

No. Unfortunately.

If you were offered the opportunity, would you take a trip to the moon?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Sure if I were able to take a cemera or video. I would 1st be able to see if the US really went or was wagging the dog, and second I would have tons of prints I could sale on Ebay.

If your neighbor offered you some BBQ over the back fence and it was some of the best meat you ever tasted, but when you ask what it was, he tells you you would not want to know, just enjoy it. Would you, or toss the rest out no matter how great it tasted?

Bellatrix's avatar

No. I like to try different things. (The only thing I can think of that would really, really be a no, no would be human flesh!!!).

Is there something unusual you have been offered to eat that you have refused?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I think I once was offered Moutnain Oysters and turned that down flat.

What was the highest ladder you ever fell off, and how high up were you when it happened?

sakura's avatar

I haven’t fallen off a ladder, but I have fallen off a chair, cupboard and worst of all a street sign which I landed on (inbetween my legs!!) not male but MY GOD it hurt LOTS!!!!

Have you ever broke a bone? Which one? and how?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Never broke a bone <knock on wood>, fractured a knuckle playing soccer in the rain back in college but that was it.

Would you rather land face first in a fire ant hill, or backward in a bush with a bee hive in it?

Coloma's avatar

Backwards in a beehive

Do you have a fly in your house right now driving you crazy?—-Aaaagh!—

MilkyWay's avatar

Yes. But I’m not letting it drive me :P
Do you enjoy shopping or just find it exhausting?

sakura's avatar

It depends what I’m shopping for and how long it takes me!! I am female but don’t particularly like shopping for clothes as I can never find anything I like when I have money (always seems to be when I don’t have money I spot something I like!) so find it very tiring!

I quite enjoy food shopping when I’m on my own and not with the hubby or daughter!

Did you pass your driving test first time?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Why not ask me what it was like coming to San Fran on a covered wagon, it was so long ago. I don’t think I did the 1st try, my parallel parking was one of the things I think sunk me.

If you were a tree, what type of tree would you be?

Coloma's avatar

A Black Oak!
My favorite tree up here in the hills. Huge, beautiful, strong, like me! not the huge part, but, my girth is growing, if I don’t lay off the ice cream and happy brownies I will have the figure of an Oak soon. lol

If you were a dog, what kind would you be?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

A mutt with parvo, mange, and fleas.

What was the worse place you got stuck with, without money?

jonsblond's avatar

Tijuana, Mexico

If you were Hot Pocket, what type of Hot Pocket would you be?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Don’t know all the Hot Pocket flavors, but I guess I would be close to ham and cheese.

Before an important meeting or fuction, what would you take as a bad luck omen?

MilkyWay's avatar

I’m not superstitious.
Do you like black cats?

Bellatrix's avatar

I do. My first cat was a black cat. I have a snobby ranga cat now. Red Burmese.

Do you have smoke alarms in your house and are they in good repair?

MilkyWay's avatar

Yes, but we took their batteries out.
Bad, I know. But they’re so damn annoying.
Are you a light sleeper?

Coloma's avatar

Medium to deep, but, I am finely tuned to all the sounds around here, the animals, wildlife etc. so if I hear something suspicious at night, it wakes me up in a second. Raccoons through the cat door is one sound that wakes me instantly, the subtle little ‘click’ of the door flap in the silence. lol

sakura's avatar

@Coloma do you have a question honey?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Yes she has a question but the raccoon distracted her.

Was @Coloma going to ask you have you ever ate a ghost pepper the Bhut Jolokia?

Coloma's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central Yes, that’s it! lol
@sakura Midlife dementia sets in, or,,,, maybe,,,,, it’s the happy brownie hour. haha

Did anyone end up with a favorite summer outfit or article of clothing this year?

gailcalled's avatar

@Coloma: I found an Hawaiian shirt that fitted me perfectly for $2.50 at the Thrift Shop. That gets my first prize.

Are your tomatoes happily ripening on the vine in your garden?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No, I have no vine garden, and may never have one unless there is a money tree growing in there.

Have you ever been skunk sprayed while out camping?

Coloma's avatar

No. But a dog I once had got blasted in the yard.

It is 11:17 pm wherever you are right now

Bellatrix's avatar

No. 4.32pm.

Do you have lots of indoor plants?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

That depends on how many is many? I have a small cactus that blooms ever so often, the best is maybe my bamboo. There are some other plants, I am amazed how they still live with me caring for them.

How many DVDs do you have, and how many are XXX?

Coloma's avatar

A lot of DVD’s. No XXX. Haven’t had any porn in the house since I divorced my ex. lol

Do you have children?

Facade's avatar

No.

Are you depressed right now?

Coloma's avatar

Mmmm…I am frustrated over a stray cat drama that has turned into about $400 on a rescue cat that is not working for either myself or my daughter. The cat is back in my spare room and I am trying to find another home for her. She hates my cat and my daughters boyfriend is severely allergic. Anyone want a fully vetted and spayed cat that comes with $300 worth of supplies? lol

Who wants my cat? haha

OpryLeigh's avatar

I want the cat but, sadly, I am not able to take on another animal :( Good luck with the little moggy though.

What was the last film you watched?

AmWiser's avatar

Yes. Hawaii, use it every year for two weeks.

When was your last Dr’s appointment?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Doctor’s appointment, what is that? Wait, is that where you see a person in a white coat then they rape you with a big bill? Na, haven’t had one in so long I can’t remember I haven’t had one.

When you take your vehicle in for repairs do you feel they are telling you the truth, or lying to you?

28lorelei's avatar

I don’t own a vehicle atm, so I have no idea.
What is your favorite piece of music?

Coloma's avatar

Impossible to say. The old Grateful Dead songs ‘Franklins Tower’ ‘Ripple’ and ‘Eyes of the world’ are 3 favorites. I am sure there are more but that will have to do in the moment. :-)

What is your favorite ethnic meal?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Ethnic to whom? Ethnic to me, none; I hate soul food.

Ever ate haggis?

Bellatrix's avatar

No. I might in the next few weeks. Wait… I tell a lie! I think I had a tiny bit once… it was… unremarkable…(sorry @flutherother).

What is the most embarrassing thing you can ever remember happening to you (or if you aren’t game to tell us that), something you were embarrassed by and will share?

Coloma's avatar

Padding my bra at 16 for a party and dancing my ‘boobs’ up and out of my bra. Yep, a couple of guys were playing catch with one. It took about 5 years to live that down in my circle of friends.lol

Are you in the path of hurricane Irene?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Thank heavens no. I will deal with the occasional earthquake every 15 or more years.

Coloma's avatar

Not a big fan, I like a few actors but I have no interest in the Hollywood scene.

Have you ever had a bad car accident?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Yes, on the way home from work one morning I got distracted by some street racers and hit a truck parked on the shoulder on a jack because someone had a flat. The tow truck coming to get it which happened to be behind me said my truck flipped totally over the truck I struck. I landed upright down a ditcxch. the truck was totalled but I got away with only a scratch over my left brow.

Have you ever had a house fire or a fire in your apartment block or condo cluster?

Fortunately NO! The closest I came to a fire was when my daughter was about 5 years old, found a lighter and somehow burned a hole in our brand new carpeting.

When was your last train ride? And where did you go?
Oh! I don’t mean commuter trains.:)

Coloma's avatar

I took a 2 hour train trip to the south side of the island of Taiwan last year. We went to Toroko Natl. Park in the mountains of Hualien Taiwan. It was great! But peeing in chinese basin toilets on a moving train was a challenge. lol

Are you BBQing or having dinner outside tonight on your deck or patio?

AmWiser's avatar

Wow! are you psychic or what? Yes, hubby and I bbq’d today and would have dined on the patio, but it was getting late and I am not bug/critter friendly. LOL!

Do you enjoy ballroom dancing?

Bellatrix's avatar

I have to laugh at this one… I think it is fun… but I am really, really crap at ballroom dancing. We (husband and I) had lessons for six months. The poor dance teacher is still in therapy. He developed a tick and a maniacal laugh….

What would you say is your greatest talent?

Coloma's avatar

Oh my, perhaps my penchant for writing and my expertise at being a human sprinkler.

Would you like to have a Koi pond in your yard?

28lorelei's avatar

Yes, it would be nice, except there are two problems:
1. not enough room
2. dog who would be VERY interested in koi
so it would not be a smart idea.

What sort of backyard do you have, if any?
and @Coloma I went to Taroko and took that train 2 years ago! Spectacular place. Chinese basin toilets in the train sounds hard, though

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

A crappy one, mostly patio no grass, but a good view of the river.

What is the longest you stayed away from Fluther when it wasn’t do to a vacation, work, or illness?

jonsblond's avatar

Two months when we didn’t have internet service. A week and a half when I was fed up with this place. ;)

Should you be in bed now? (Are you up late or up early)?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I should have been in bed a long time ago, but I was perpareing a mansion I got lost getting back too. Now I am Fluthering it out because you never know….....

When was the last time you shot a shotgun?

Coloma's avatar

Never. I have only shot a 22 rifle and a couple of hand guns, a looong time ago. I’m not a gun person at all.

Have you seen the movie “The Help” yet? Did you like it?

Bellatrix's avatar

No I haven’t. Unusually, I haven’t been to the cinema for a few weeks. Last time I went was to see Harry Potter I think. Should I watch it? Is it good?

What is your favourite news program?

AshLeigh's avatar

In my government class we watch CNN Student News a lot… That’s the only news I watch…
If you could delete one song from existence, which song would it be?

MilkyWay's avatar

California girls by Katy Perry. I hate that song.
What do you think of black henna?

AshLeigh's avatar

It’s fine.
Did you ever notice that Nikki Minage is a black Lady Gaga?

MilkyWay's avatar

LOL! Now I have.

What’s your favourite accent?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Favorite accent for men: German, or UK (just about any dialect_)

Women: Russian, or Italian.

What is your favorite movie with Morgan Freeman in it?

MilkyWay's avatar

Oooh, tough. I think it would be either Million dollar baby, or Bruce Almighty.
Two very different films, I know
What is your favourite genre when reading?

AshLeigh's avatar

I don’t have a favorite. Just whatever’s interesting.
Aren’t you glad @MilkyWay is back? :)

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I am ecstatic.

Does @MilkyWay wear booty shorts or Daisy Dukes more than pencil skirts?

AshLeigh's avatar

Yes she does.
Why would I know that? O.o

MilkyWay's avatar

I have absolutley no idea. Maybe because your my sis ;)
What are Daisy Dukes?

AshLeigh's avatar

The cut off jean shorts that Daisy Duke wears, in the Dukes Of Hazard…
Don’t you love The Dukes Of Hazard? :D

MilkyWay's avatar

I’m afraid I haven’t seen it :/
Do you often go to Fluther chat?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Rarely, many times there are no one there when I go.

Is @MilkyWay really the sister of @AshLeigh?

MilkyWay's avatar

She is really my virtual sister, yes. :)
Is @Hypocrisy_Central a woman or a man?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

110% all made. But loves to admire attractive women. ;-)

Why are Daisy Dukes more popular for gals that post to Photobucket and not regular females?

MilkyWay's avatar

No idea, I don’t use Photobucket.
Why aren’t skinny jeans or leggings seen as sexy as miniskirts on women?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Skinny jeans are more sexy than leggings. Leggings show no confidence, like they are scared to have their legs seen. Jeans can be if snug enough to be “painted on”, and on a woman worthy enough to wear them well. Minis, on the right woman, are more sexy because they show off the cheesecake, which is like the gateway to the honey cave.

If you were eating very tasty meat from a foreign born neighbor, and they told you it was Squirrel, would you finish eating it?

MilkyWay's avatar

Yes, I would. It’s tasty, I eat it :D
Would you ever try parachuting?

AshLeigh's avatar

Haha. You thought she was my sister, @Hypocrisy_Central. :)
LezboPirate is my real life sister. :D But @MilkyWay is my Fluther sister. ;)
I would love to!!!
Wanna go Parachuting with me? :D

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Sure, but not tandem. I want to go solo with a snowboard or like this.

How many times a year do you play Scrabble?

OpryLeigh's avatar

I haven’t played scrabble for many years so, on average, 0.

What was the most enjoyable thing you did last week?

MilkyWay's avatar

Had a party. Me and my friends had a good laugh :D
What is your favourite type of cuisine?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Mostly pasta, Italian 1st then Asian.

A female who is not bashful to walk around naked, or near naked in front of people. Is she slutty and wanting attention, or super confident, and comfortable in her own body?

Bellatrix's avatar

The latter. Comfortable in her own body.

Think back over the last month, what has someone said to you (about you) that has taken your breath away for a second?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No one has said anything that did that, good or bad.

Have you ever thought to prank a bomb scare on Black Friday to disrupt all those shoppers dashing about like ants?

gailcalled's avatar

Never.

Do you think a false bomb scare in a crowded venue is really amusing?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

It some ways, it would. To see who would still risk getting their head blown off for the sake of scoring a 47” flat screen for $399, the rich would not be risking their lives over electronics.

Would it be more amusing to juggling kittens wearing oven mitts?

Bellatrix's avatar

If the cats were real, it would definitely not be funny. Even with pretend cats it didn’t leave me laughing. I also agree with @Gailcalled though, I cannot see anything funny about a bomb scare. My sister left a major department store, minutes before a bomb went off. The city centre of my home town was destroyed by a bombs. Nothing amusing there.

When you travel, are you good at packing light or do you tend to take much more than you need?

MilkyWay's avatar

I’m good at packing light, though the same can’t be said for myself. I stuff a lot of things into my pockets.
Where would you like to go if you got a free airline ticket?

Bellatrix's avatar

Can it be a free ‘round the world’ ticket? If not, I will go to Canada. I will fly to Vancouver, travel across to Toronto (perhaps by train, maybe car) and fly back home from there.

Do you like road trips and why?

MilkyWay's avatar

I love road trips because they’re fun, you have the option of stopping whenever you want and you get to see and therefore connect with your surroundings a lot more.
When was the last time you made someone cry?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Too long ago to remember. The last time I allowed myself to cry was when my mother died 9 years ago.

If you went to a planet where everything to eat was sweet. How would you describe what salty and bitter was?

MilkyWay's avatar

The opposite of sweet.
What would be your favourite wild animal?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Bengal tiger.

If a person never experienced anything but sweet, how could they fathom what anything other than sweet was?

MilkyWay's avatar

They’d use their imagination.
Why do you think the world is oval and not round?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I don’t thin the world is oval, if so, on;y by a small degree undetected by space photography.

If imagination can take the place of facts and other input, can you imagine what your life would be if you were plankton?

MilkyWay's avatar

If I try to, I might be able to.
Do you find my answers to the above questions annoying?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No I don’t.

How long would you let a family member freeload off of you?

MilkyWay's avatar

For as long as they need it. Otherwise probably about a week or so.
What would be your favourite holiday destination?

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Aruba is FUN.

Where will you go for the holidays?

Bellatrix's avatar

Home. I would like to spend Christmas somewhere different but my furry family would not like being in kennels etc. and I would have to take my children with me. Can’t have Christmas without my children.

Do you have your own chickens?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No, if I did, my cats would have them for lunch, I am sure of it.

What is the degree you always wanted but never got, or was able to pursuit?

AshLeigh's avatar

Haven’t thought about it much. :)
Why did this thread die? :(

MilkyWay's avatar

Because it hasn’t got people like you and I.
Are you currently looking for a job?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No, I work formyself to make myself wealthy, not other people.

Do you like working to make other people wealthy?

reijinni's avatar

nope
want to toss an iPad?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No, I am a PC kinda guy.
Which dance do you feel is more sexier, the Argentine Tango, the Salsa, or the Rumba?

Ela's avatar

The Salsa. No one dances the Salsa like this beauty

Have you ever been in a natural disaster?

sakura's avatar

no but one occured about half an hour away from me when I lived in New Zealand.

Have you ever been to see amusical/westend/broadway show?

Ela's avatar

No but I would absolutely love to! I have like 2,000 things to do in my second half of life and that’s one of them. You driving @sakura? ; )

Do you play any musical instruments and if so which one(s)?

sakura's avatar

No, but I wish I could, I can play the Major Morgan does that count? (No I am not driving, just hopeless at typing and forgot how much you need to check and edit answers on Fluther, as I haven’t visited for quite some time!)

Do you sleep walk/talk?

Ela's avatar

Sleep walk… I don’t think so. I always wake up where ever I fall asleep.
Sleep talk… I have no idea, I’m always asleep! (you don’t have to worry about checking or editing your answers for me, i honestly don’t mind.)

What is your favorite season and why?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I love summer, it is far superior to any other season. There are at least half a dozen ways to instantly get cool in the summer; you don’t have to wait to thaw out. If you drop your newspaper, program, receipt, etc it won’t become soggy, wet, or smear. You can sit on a bench in the park or wherever and not get a wet butt, likewise, you can do that to the grass in summer. You get out of work because you will get a heat stroke so you have a reason to do it later in the day when it is cooler. The days are longer. You can see which women are in shape and who should lay off the Twinkies because they can’t hide under puffy down jackets. You have a reason to go to the movies or shopping at the mall, even if just window shopping, to use the A/C there. The days are sunny and bright, you can do way more outdoor activities.

What would be your reason for owning a muscle car?

Bellatrix's avatar

I wouldn’t. I don’t find them attractive and I find the obsession some people have with their cars ridiculous. I remember sitting at a cafe on a Friday night at Bondi and watching muscle car after muscle car go by. They were filled with groups of young guys who thought they were so cool. To me they looked like a bunch of dickheads who had more money than sense and apparently no girlfriends.

When you look back over this year’s festive season, what was the stand out moment for you?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

The morning of Christmas (the church) we took new bikes out to the projects and gave them to some random poor kids. when this one kid (who must not have had a big Christmas) realized he was being given a brand new bike for Christmas he lit up like a super nova.

Were they “real” muscle cars? What years was those vehicles made that you saw?

Ela's avatar

They flexed, showed me their guns and gave ‘em each a kiss…
Looked very musclish to me, indeed!

Have you ever owned a panel sided Studebaker?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

No, but if they are a classic I wish I did.

Do you plan on going on a diet in 2013?

sakura's avatar

No, not a real diet anyway! Gonna go back to the jogging though! :)

Have you ever tried Warburtons pitta bread crisps if not TRY THEM!!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I have not tried them. Do not know if I will.

Will you buy many DVDs this year or just stream them online?

Bellatrix's avatar

No. I very rarely buy DVDs. I have Foxtel (cable) and just wait to see series/films there or I go to the cinema.

How many weeks holiday a year do you get if you are in paid employment?

sakura's avatar

I teach so in theory quite a few! However do I get chance to relax during these holidays? erm, not much! Well I fib, as this Christmas I have done very little!!

James Bond films good or not so good?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I found most to be enjoyable.

In a relationship are you <A> Down, <B> Egg, or <C> Mandarin? Did/do you commit feather you would have lost anyhow, an egg which was of you but not anything permanently apart of you, or Mandarin, you committed all for you can’t have Mandarin duck without the duck giving everything it is?

sakura's avatar

erm… I think c Mandarin? Cause I’m guessing that meant something to do with commitment?
Friends…total hit? or total *hit?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I guess friends are more of a complete miss, there are some who are golden, that will be there until the wheels fall off, but they are very rare.

What period of time (60s, 70s, etc) in US history did the butler get the keys to the mansion; IE parents became so feckless that kids are allowed to disrespect their elders and parents?

sakura's avatar

I live in the UK so I’m not so sure about the US! Here in the UK I think that a generation that grew up with a everything because the generation before never had, has created a generation that wants even more for even less!
As soon as things become more readily available and a throw away culture was created,
therefore things are replaced as easily as they are come by, means that people expect more from those around them and when it isn’t given it’s seen as a you don’t love me, or even parents thinking if I don’t give they won’t love.

Thats just my rambilngs and may be a tad broad but hey ho!

Do you have a special teddy/blankie?

Bellatrix's avatar

I do have a special teddy. I have had him since I was five and I will have him until I die. He has enormous sentimental value. I also have my son’s teddy, scruffy. He won’t be going anywhere until perhaps my son has a child of his own.

Which is your country of birth, do you live there and which other countries have you visited?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I was born here in “Yankeeville” (the USA). I have not even seen 8% of this nation much less anywhere else in the world.

Do you favor bikinis, one-piece swimsuits, tankinis?

OpryLeigh's avatar

I’m a bikini kind of girl!

Have you taken a trip down memory lane recently?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Too many times; remembered all the tickets i didn’t buy and the bad ones I did.

Do you favor vinyl, MP3s, live, or cassettes for your music pleasure?

Bellatrix's avatar

I love vinyl and still have a collection of vinyl records. Alas I have no turntable at the moment. It’s on the list. So mostly I listen to CDs or MP3s. I have copied all my CDs onto my computers and we use an Xbox to store music on too. We tend to listen via that rather than the actual CDs these days.

What was your last interaction with the natural world. For instance, I just sat watching two birds tending to their nest. What was the most recent interaction you had with nature?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

The last real instance of that was when I seen a hawk swoop down and nabbed a pigeon, the dart off in a cloud of feathers with the newly departed bird in its beak.

Ela's avatar

Is there a reason for this madness we call love?

reijinni's avatar

yep, babies.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Do you like puppies more than babies or babies more than turtles?
