What’s the worst commercial you’ve recently seen (or heard)? Why was it so bad?

Well, they weren’t made recently but every single Sarah McLachlan ASPCA commercial I’ve ever seen falls in this category. The graphic depiction of animals being tortured or starving to death is Way Too Much.

What takes a lot of time but is totally worth it?

Good skincare. Granted, “a lot” is relative since for me good skincare means a nightly face wash or swiping with micellar water. Still, the theory stands.

Have you ever smiled at a stranger and then wished you hadn’t? Why or why not?

Absolutely. Back before I had a sense of when to stay shuttered I smiled at the wrong guy on the T in Boston and he paid just a little too much attention to me until I got off at my station. Lesson learned.

What do you think is the nastiest tasting food? (This one might be a recycled question. It’s familiar to me anyhow.)

Mussels. That’s based on food I’ve actually eaten but if I’m allowed to include items I’m certain will taste foul based solely on their smell then let’s add squid, collard greens, and chitterlings.

Are you at peace with yourself? Your world? Please share, whether you said “yay” or “nay”!

Dang it, Melanie, it’s a crappy time to ask this question! Fine. Normally I’m at peace with myself and how I move through the world. I have some things out of alignment that are stressing me out, though, so peace is a bit of a stretch at the moment. I’m working on it.
