Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures?

That’s so funny – we were just talking about this over breakfast on Sunday! BrightSide asked if I had any musical guilty pleasures and I stalled out for a bit with an umm…umm… I finally settled on Taylor Swift. I like most of her songs and sing along when they’re on. This feels like a bit of a guilty pleasure for someone who loved The Smiths and The Cure.

What Is The Worst Pick Up Line You Ever Heard?  

Trying to answer this question really clarified my utter lack of dating experience. Or maybe it’s just been so long that my brain didn’t retain any pick up lines at all.

What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song?

Lawd, does this feel like a loaded question. As they say in the twitterverse, don’t @ me. Just add yours in the comments and keep on moving.

“I Got You Babe” (Sonny and Cher). “Ebony and Ivory” (Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder). “Gangnam Style” (PSY). “My Way” (Frank Sinatra) – yeah, I said it.

You Find A Book And Begin To Read Only To Discover That It Is Your Life. You Get To The Point That You Are At Now, Do You Turn The Page Knowing That You Will Not Be Able To Change The Events To Come?

This falls under that whole chicken-or-the-egg question. If I read the rest of the book are my choices my choices because I always would have chosen them anyway, or are they my choices because I saw the arc of my life? Or am I so befuddled by the whole existential debate that I freeze entirely and stop making choices? No thanks, I’ll just muddle through.
