Wow, it's a rare thing to get to answer the ? of the day on the day it is intended for!

Today's Question(s):

I have always tried to live by the saying
Try to learn something new every day, so

What new thing have you learned lately ?
I am learning something new in my studies everyday. At the moment I am writing an essay on nature versus nurture so I am learning everything I can about that.

Bonus Question:

The "Jewelry fairy"is stopping by to bring you a present !!

What would you want her to bring you ?

Diamonds of course! I'll get her to mend a diamond and amethyst gold necklace while she's here. The chain broke and it won't be easy to fix.


Bonus Question:

What as the last reason you stayed up really late ?

I stay up late every night to answer your questions. I don't know what I'll do tonight. Maybe an early night for a change!

Really I'm just an insomniac, I don't need an excuse to stay up late.


Just for fun:

Last time you stepped on a scale? This morning
Have you every owned a Mr Potato Head? No
If you could close your eyes and just blink, what food would appear in front of you ? A very large fresh fruit salad. I only have grapes and oranges in my kitchen at the moment.
Favorite diet food ?
Least favorite diet food ?

I don't believe in diets. I think a diet is doomed from the start because it is only a temporary change and people generally go back to bad habits after it's finished. Better to change lifestyle and eating habits permanently.

I'll get off my soapbox now.

Hmmm.. I find it a little strange answering the questions of the day, a day early..
Today's Question(s):

I have always tried to live by the saying
Try to learn something new every day, so
What new thing have you learned lately ?
I learned that no matter what you learn, you can never learn too much, and when you do learn too much, you get very confused! - Seriously, the new thing I've learned last week was computer-related.

Bonus Question:

The "Jewelry fairy"is stopping by to bring you a present !!

What would you want her to bring you ?
Well, I would say an engagement ring, but forget that, how about a wife? I'll take care of the jewelry... I'll just get 'em from those machines at Walmart..

Bonus Question:

What as the last reason you stayed up really late ?
To get caught up with posting on City Data? How about because I couldn't fall asleep?

Just for fun:

Last time you stepped on a scale? Hmm.. I'd have to weight the advantages of answering this question.. - Back in October at my doctor's office.
Have you ever owned a Mr Potato Head? I never even thought about it, if I wanted anything that has "potato" in the name, it had better be a real potato, not a silly toy.
If you could close your eyes and just blink, what food would appear in front of you ? Anything that's very tasty, and very healthy, and doesn't make you gain 10 pounds just by looking at it..
Favorite diet food ? Hmmm.. Well, it has 0 calories, no carbs, and no saturated fats, the food is called No Food.. - Actually a good salad.
Least favorite diet food ? Stuff that gives you heartburn?

What would you want her to bring you ? Basically I don't need expensive jewelry but if she's here she can leave a set of ruby earrings and a matching ring. I saw a great set when we were in Singapore but there were just too expensive


Bonus Question:

What as the last reason you stayed up really late ? Must have been my belated b/day party last week. Altho we stay up nearly every weekend till at least 1 a.m. which is very late for me...


Just for fun:

Last time you stepped on a scale? This morning, just to check no extra lbs attached themselves onto me while I was sleeping, they can be pretty annoying lol

Have you every owned a Mr Potato Head? No, I don't think so, what is that?

If you could close your eyes and just blink, what food would appear in front of you ? Pizza
