Today's Question(s):
Which do you prefer:
overhead lighting or table lamps? Definitely table lamps
potato salad or egg salad? Hmmm - a good egg salad is better than a mediocre potato salad, but a mediocre potato salad is better than a poor egg salad!
spring or fall? Spring
carpet or hardwood floors? I like carpet in the bedroom, but hardwood floors everywhere else.
shopping online or in a store? Online for most things, store for clothes (I'm hard to fit so buying online would involve lots of returns).

Chocolate!

A) Overhead lighting. My one table lamp is currently not being used.
B) Potato by default. I don't eat either one.
C) Spring, I like to see trees blooming, not leaves falling. Also, sign of warmer weather even though I do not like very hot days. However, hot over very cold.
D) Carpet is more quiet.
E) Doesn't matter.
