Things you didn’t know you didn’t know

I was catching up with my blog reading when I discovered that LisaF over at Peripheral Per­cep­tions had called me out in one of her posts with this chal­lenge. So I’m giving it a try.

If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?
I suppose winning my JEOPARDY! game. I would have breathed, instead of hyperventilating.

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be? Just one? There are so many. I suppose there was a friend with an illness, and I didn’t realize how significant it was, and I should have. If I had, I would have gone there to visit.

What movie/TV char­acter do you most resemble in per­son­ality?
I have no idea. At some level, I suppose it’s one of those characters on that show the Big Bang Theory – which I don’t watch because I just can’t stand the laugh track – who knows a few things but is socially inept. I’m not as smart as those guys, but not as much of a dweeb either. Or Drew Carey on the Drew Carey Show.

If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?
I hon­estly don’t think I could bring myself to push anyone off a cliff unless someone were trying to push me off a cliff and it were self-defense. Or I was defending someone else. Yeah, I might be able to do that.

Name one habit you want to change in your­self.
Going to that negative place. there might be five great things and one bad thing, and guess which one gets too much of my attention?

Describe your­self in one word.
Inscrutable.

Describe the person who named you in this meme in one word.
Colorful.

Why do you blog? (In one sen­tence)
Can it be a really LONG sentence?
I blog because I have found it useful, even necessary to write what I’m thinking and feeling, lest I interrupt my mental processing with ‘noise’; yet I’ve found it more beneficial through the interaction that has evolved with other, usually distant, people, not occasionally more meaningfully than those with people I see on a daily basis.

Now I’m sup­pose to pass this on and share the brain-racking insightful fun. So, I decided on YOU. You know who you are; if you think it’s you, it probably is. If you don’t, it’s probably you, too.

  1. Been there, done that…..passed it on to YOU! Not sure this warranted borrowing my pic to put in your post, :-/ but thanks for the shout out! I’m colorful? Yes, most likely. And that is one looonnnggggg sentence; but you technically didn’t break the one-sentence rule. 🙂 I would have loved to have seen your face when you won Jeopardy.

  2. Roger, I think I told you I went on Wheel and won ZIP. Zilch. I should write about Wheel of Misfortune for the next ‘Z’ prompt on ABC, huh?

    I’ll give you ONE from the above, the negative habit I would try to change: Procrastination. There. Done!

    Loved this meme, and also wish I’d seen your face on Jeopardy when you won. That’s a real accomplishment! Amy

  3. I’m not sure if I would change even one thing. I always remember that Ray Bradbury story when the guy went back to prehistoric days and trod on a butterfly….
