Kyra asked these questions on her blog. She actually asked them two different ways: If you had six months and what if everyone had 6 months.

If you knew you only had six months to live, and the world was guaranteed to end for you – how would you live?

What would you do?
Take it easy, relax, travel and lots more.
Would you spend your money, or save it?
Spend it. I’d clear out my 403b, 401k and IRAs! Heck, I’d stop probably stop paying my bills.
Would you eat healthy/diet, or would you be into the ice cream and chips every day?
Not healthy (not any less healthy than now either). Maybe more desserts :)
Exercise?
Exer-what? Actually, I’d be running around so much I probably wouldn’t need any.
Would you stay in your current job, or find something else to do?
Six months? I’d quit! (I like my job but at that point what’s the point).

Would you keep your current friends, or cut the ones who only waste your time?
I’d keep them all.
Would you talk to every single person that you consciously make time for? Or cut your loses?
Status quo.
Would you stay where you live, or move?
I’d stay there but also travel.
What things would you stop caring about, that you do now?
Bills, upgrading the house (painting, furniture, etc.), stop saving for car, retirement, etc.
Anything else?
I’d throw more than a few parties and give away a lot of my stuff, I don’t need lots of it and and why make someone else decide who gets what later. I’d have to rush and finish lots of my 101 in 1001 list, just the fun ones, not the chores, those are the ones I really want to do anyways so why not… Since I’m dying in 6 months it probably wouldn’t do any good to tell some people about my secret feelings for them but you never know. It might get me more kisses or (goodbye) sex…

I’m single and have no dependents so that really makes the options easier for me than some people. Sure I’d hook Mom up with some of my savings but she’s probably fine without it so that makes this a lot more fun list for me than it might be for some others.

I’m not going to go the route if it was six months for everyone, I’d have to assume it’d be a bad place to be (chaos and all). But the new series 3 Moons Over Milford (free at iTunes at this point in time) is kind of a end of the world scenario (the moon breaks into three pieces in a degrading orbit) where it’s not chaos, I’d like to think it’d go that way.

1. Do you think you’re a good driver? Do you drive defensively or offensively? Why?
I’m a pretty good driver. I kinda just get into “driving mode” and move along. (My mom always gets nervous).
2. How fast do you normally drive? Do you always go the speed limit, or do you like to speed? Do you believe in the ‘flow of traffic’ method for speeding?
I probably go a little over, nothing significant.
3. What do you think of those people who drive while talking on the fone? Do you think it impairs their driving? Why/why not? Do you do it?
They’re generally idiots with a phone in one hand and a soda or smoke in the other. Get a headset!!!! It’s the holding onto their head that’s part of the impairment/problem. You see someone swerving weird or blocking an intersection or not turning and 90% of the time they’re holding a phone (generally they aren’t on a headset). If you don’t believe me just walk around the grocery store; the ones pushing a cart and holding the phone are a menace, the ones with a headset just seem schizophrenic since thy’re taking to themselves…
Bonus Question for Comments: What’s one thing that just drives you absolutely bonkers that people do when their driving (or how their driving)?
Not using their blinker!!!! It should be a $500 fine IMHO.

Onesome: Cooked to?– Okay, the easy one: if you’re having grilled meat (steak/hamburger) this weekend, how would you like it cooked?
Well done. I don’t need it like a puck but I don’t want any red. I don’t want any indication this was on a living creature at some time previous to my eating it….
Twosome: Medium– to large? …too large? What do you think of the big ol’ plasma screen HDTVs available now? I mean, would you if you could?
Awesome, but if you’ve got a room you can dim you can probably put in a projector for lots LE$$. Mine is 105 inches diagonally!
Threesome: Rare– Footage: one of the major news services recently announced they would make archived news coverage available for personal purchase on DVD. Is there any one piece/segment/area of old news (or new) you’d like to have on your bookshelf to view “whenever”?
Yes, I’d like all the times I’ve made it on TV for one reason or another on one DVD (and others in my family too). But real news? Not really.

What is your dream car?
Oh, I was going to say a hybrid convertible (we’ll stick with that as my practical option).

But since someone else expanded answers to include other options like a driver or self driving (which would be great) I’m going to say I’d like the “traditional” flying car.

What is the furthest North and the furthest South you’ve ever been?
North would have to be somewhere along the coast of Alaska. South would have to be Egypt or Costa Rica (I’m going to guess Egypt since it’s a lot hotter there). Coincidentally, they are the first and last places I’ve traveled on my own.

Languageweek4Srah has decreed that July 24-28, 2006 is Language Week. This means that once a day for the week you blog at least once a day (at least a few sentences) in a language you usually don’t blog in. Read her blog for the rest of the rules.

1. What do you think of space? Do you think we should explore it, or stay here on Earth and tend to matters here?
Definetly explore it. No question about it. (Because it’s there!)
2. If you could travel anywhere off Earth, where would you go? Why?
Assuming I’m on a tour of sorts I would assume Saturn would offer a bit of choices for this solar system. If I have no restrictions it’d probably be to see a black hole (up close of course).
3. Do you think we’re doing enough to facilitate science? Why/why not? What would you do to change things?
Not a chance. We need more budget for NASA and for the private developers.
Bonus Question for Comments: What are some of your favorite movies about space/take place in space/etc?
All the ones that come to mind are kids movies: Explorers, The Last Star Fighter, Flight of the Navigator (of course). I’m sure there are more but not coming to mind right now.

So I finally did a 26 things scavenger hunt. I just noticed they were offering one for this month (they only do it every few months) and I thought I had a lot of Egypt photos that fit the plan so I used those (a few I had to stretch the definitions a little).

Here’s the photos of the 26 things that I used…

FYI – this also completes one of my 101 in 1001 items list!!!

Here is the 26 things site (these are not my photos)

1. Do you like chicken?
Yes. I get that a lot when I eat out.
2. What is 1 food you can’t live without?
Probably just plain ol’ steak!
3. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Without questions I’m a night owl.
4. Chocolate or vanilla?
Vanilla ice cream and shakes, chocolate everything else.
5. Are you more of a cat person or a dog person?
No.

Did they ask all the meat questions on a Friday during lent on purpose?!?

What is the most useless thing you have in your wallet?

I don’t actually carry a wallet, it takes up more room than the items, which makes the wallet the useless part. But to stick with the theme of the question, today I did wonder why I had a receipt from Arby’s in my pocket from three days ago…

Found at Question of the Day.

So I took the quiz and I scored in the area of Engineering/Mathematics. “You should be an Mathematics or Engineering major! Like Pythagoras, you are analytical, rational, and when are always ready to tackle the problem head-on!”

So I saw this at Amy’s and thought it’d be interesting to do. I scored pretty much in the area I thought I’d hit. I think the only reason I hit so high in the Journalism and English areas is because blogging influenced some of my answers to the writing and expressing questions. I’m surprised that biology didn’t show up higher but who knows how they figure the out. There was no computer or education areas in my results (or any that I’ve seen) so I’m assuming it’s not an option.

    SuttonbrownI’m definitely lacking nice brown shoes and I own several pairs of these shoes (see image) in black but needed to order the ones in the color brown. I knew I’d like them (this has been my standard black shoe for years) and I’ve been meaning to do this for ages so I added it to my 101 in 1001 list. So the guy at the Hush Puppies store said he could order them for me cheaper than I could buy on-line (which was true). I just wasn’t sure exactly what my size was so I wanted to check my black ones at home.

    So I found the size and called them back and when they got on-line to order them it turns out they didn’t have the brown ones any more. So I checked all the on-line stores and the few places that did have them didn’t have my size (and they were all more expensive than he could have got them for me)…


    Then I found Boscov’s!!!! They have the Sutton Hush Puppies in Brown and they were half off. So I ordered two pair! And I loved them. (Of course I did, they’re the same as the black ones!)

    Did I tell you I hate shoe shopping? And that they don’t make these any more? And they were brown? And they were exactly what I wanted? Guess what? I ordered 4 more! I won’t have to deal again with this for a long time…

    Is Boscov’s a real store? Has anyone shopped at one? Was it a catalog place before they were on-line?

    (FYI: This is one of my 101 in 1001 days items, and this post is pretty much the same post as I put over there…)

    So far I’ve completed:

  • 03/15/06: Frame all of my college degrees.
  • 03/11/06: Get a new desk for the landing.
  • 03/11/06: Do my taxes for last year.
  • 03/08/06: Post this list on-line.
  • 03/06/06: Figure out a plan for my mortgage.
  • 03/03/06: Get a new carbon monoxide detector.
  • 02/17/06: Do my taxes for the year before last.
  • 01/15/06: Get a new desk chair.
  • 12/08/05: See Anna Nalick in concert.
  • Way back in September 2005 I said I liked the idea of this 101 things in 1001 days.

    As it says on the 101 in 1001 site:

    The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

    So I’ve built a list and I’m crossing them off. I broke them down by categories: Blog, Entertainment, Family, Health, Home, Me, Money, Other, Technology and Vacation (the last category may be overloaded). Of course the list is at http://101in1001.garylapointe.com/ and I’ve got it all geeked out (but the template needs work).


    On the site there is a countdown as to the time left and how many tasks I’ve completed (and what percentage of tasks I’ve completed vs. percentage of time passed).

    Recently completed items are in the left sidebar of this site on many of the pages. Also on days that I post a new entry there and here, it’ll automatically show up under the date. Unfortunately, it was an afterthought so it doesn’t show up on days when I don’t post here, but I’ll figure something out…

    There are RSS 2.0 and Atom feeds if you’re a feed reader…

    These are things I’m doing so some of the posts will be relevant to life so I’m trying to figure out a way to incorporate them more here.

    1. Do you have a problem admitting you’re wrong?
    Sometimes. But I usually keep my mouth shut if I’m not sure so I usually avoid it. (So I guess that’s a yes).
    2. Would you rather watch someone important to you walk out of your life or beg them to stay?
    I’d beg. That’s better than regretting it. And if they’re leaving what’s to lose?
    3. Are you the kind of person who would rather try your best and fail, or not try for fear of failure?
    No fear of failure in most things. I’ll generally try!
    4. Have you ever expressed interest in someone high above your status, where your chances of being rejected were very high?
    I can’t think of anything but I’m sure I have. I’m not a stranger to rejection.
    5. If you made a contribution to a charity would you want credit, or would giving be enough?
    Giving is enough but if I can get credit too…

    Question of the Week – 2006/02/20. More about how you sleep!

    Are you a “sheet next to the skin” person or a “blanket next to the skin” person?
    Sheets.
    Do you like a heavy comforter, or just a light blanket?
    Heavy comforter (I like it cold).
    Ceiling fan or no fan?
    I’d like a ceiling fan but I don’t have one. I usually run some kind of fan for the noise.
    Windows open?
    No. Sometimes on vacation when it’s someplace nice…
    Nightlight or complete darkness?
    Complete darkness, like a cave.
    How many hours a night do you sleep (or would you sleep, if given the chance)?
    I’d like about seven-and-a-half, it’s rare that I get it.

    So I usually don’t take these, let alone post them but I saw this and had to take it.

    It’s science and was a general standardized “test” so I felt the need to score myself. There were a few I wasn’t sure but I took my best guess and did okay…

    I generally don’t even do these goofy quizzes that define your type. I usually just stick with the more thoughtful memes (which I haven’t done much lately).

    Q1 – Co-Workers: Do the people you work with tend to be younger than you, the same age as you, or older than you? How do the differences in age or generations play themselves out in your work environment? In other words, are these sorts of differences good, bad, or not a factor in the work you do?
    Most of the people in my building are older than myself but district wide with all the teachers a lot of the staff is younger than me. Though in most of my previous jobs I used to be the baby where ever I worked.

    Q2 – Television: Last week, Kevin Martin, the relatively new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, said he was in favor of an “a la carte” cable pricing plan that would allow consumers to choose to pay only for the individual cable channels they want. Do you like the idea of a la carte pricing for cable TV? If Martin is successful in getting the cable industry to offer it, how many channels do you think you’d choose to subscribe to a la carte?
    Yes!! Please yes! I’d do about nine channels: ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, UPN, WB, USA, SciFi and G4. There might be a few more but I’d have to check the TiVo to see what else. I do like a few of the HD channels out there (inHD, inHD2 and I think there are a few more from other networks I don’t get) so I might check into those depending on the price.
    Q3 – Eating Out: After receiving the bill for a great meal in a restaurant you’d been dying to try, you notice that your waiter neglected to charge for one of the items you ordered and happily devoured. Would you… tell the waiter, not tell the waiter but leave a larger tip than called for, or not do anything? Would your answer be different if the meal or service really sucked?
    I don’t think I’ve ever not been charged for en entree or anything big, generally a soda or a drink. Which would get the waiter a bigger tip. It’d depend on the service.
    Q4 – Business Cards: Do you have one? If so, how often do you hand yours out verses receiving them from others?
    I have business cards (but I need more). I hand them out occasionally, more people generally give them to me than the other way around.

    1. Which of the following generally costs you more: a normal trip to your barber/hairstylist, your usual lunch at your favorite restaurant, the most recent amount you paid to fill up your gas tank, or your biggest single contribution to a single charity in 2005?
    My biggest contribution to a single charity was the largest: which would to First Step (the shelter I volunteer at). Next would be Gas, Hair, Lunch.
    2. What drink — alcoholic or not — do you drink entirely too much of?
    Coca-Cola. My other drinks are water, Cap’t + Coke, Long Island Iced Teas, and a fruity drink that tastes like Hawaiian Punch.

    Coca-Cola. My other drinks are water, Captain + Coke, Long Island Iced Teas, and a fruity drink that tastes like Hawaiian Punch.
    3. Did you receive a Christmas card from anyone you didn’t send one to? Did you send them a belated card in return?
    Yes. I got lots of nice ones this year (I sent none).
    4. Take this quiz (if you haven’t already!): What is most important in your life?
    Family. (See the details of the quiz below).
    5. Before taking the quiz, which of its categories (career, love, money, health, family or fun) would you have said would be your answer?
    Family and Fun.
    6. Do you believe in soulmates? Do you think that there are at least one out there for every person, that there is a single “true” soulmate for every person, or that there aren’t soulmates for everyone?
    I hope there is at least one, ’cause I think I’ve let a few get by already.

    From the Saturday Six.


    Family is most important in your life.

    Having a high focus on family indicates that you are a loving and nurturing person. You want to have a nice big family of your own, and you are very close with your siblings and parents.

    What first got you started blogging?
    Heather was doing it so I had thought about it a little bit. Then I started watching Joan of Arcadia and used it as my motivation to start blogging.
    How often do you post to your blog?
    I think I average about 10 posts a week.
    Do you have more than one blog and if so, how are they each different?
    I’m working on some more (more techy ones) but just need to do the last little bit. So it’s really just the main one.
    Where did you first hear about memes?
    I probably saw them on someone else site, I’m not really sure.
    Do you remember the first meme you participated in and if so, what was it?
    Either the Scrabble one (I think I first saw it on Heather’s) or The (original) Friday Five (now deceased).
    Do you run any memes yourself and if so what are they?
    I don’t run any memes, but I do run The Daily Meme.
    How did you find this meme?
    It was submitted to The Daily Memee so I had easy access to it.

    From the brand new meme theGhost Works Virtual Hash.

    Who is your favourite superhero?
    Cyclops from the X-men. He had the interesting powers (and the coolest girlfriend) but also the downside of the goofy goggles.
    If you were a superhero, which one would you be?
    Superman, he’s got it all.
    Justice League or Injustice League?
    Justice!
    Which supervillain would you be?
    “Lex Luthor, the greatest criminal mind in the world.”
    If you could have superpowers, what would they be?
    Teleportation would be handy. Not as exciting as flying but probably a lot easier to incorporate into my “normal” life. I could live anywhere and work anywhere and it wouldn’t matter…

    1. Do you like the colder weather, or are you into the hotter weather?
    I like hotter better, but colder isn’t as annoying as much for the short term (I can go out side for a minute and not come back hot and sweaty.

    2. What is your favorite thing about winter?
    Snow and/or ice on the trees and Christmas lights outside (with now).

    3. Do you have a favorite comfy, cozy lounging around outfit?
    Not really.

    4. What’s your favorite warm drink when it is just too cold out there?
    Hot apple cider with carmel whip. Preferably the cider has had a cinnamon stick soaking in it all day…

  • iPod 60GB color (no video): Music, Podcasts, eBooks, my (read only) calendar/addressbook, some eBook files and works as a really big thumb drive.
  • TiVo (250 GB DVD recorder): Plays TV (what I want when I want), Records what I want every week (and makes suggestions), plays CDs, DVDs, Video CDs, streams audio and photos from my computers. With the new (free) HME options I can check the weather, movie listings, RSS feeds, photo feeds, flickr streams, play games, play my iTunes, back up shows to my computer and more (people keep writing these modules).


    All are pretty mullti-functional devices that are converging. The Powerbook + TiVo have pretty similar capabilities and the phone + palm + camera + iPod are certainly sharing some capabilities too. Merge those in to two devices that let me doc them together and life would be good. The only thing missing is a real video recorder (and that’s probably coming soon).

    I’m pretty covered, I’m not sure what else I need. Other than the newer / faster / smaller versions of these same gadgets, of course (I’d like the iPod video player). Maybe something to power/charge all these gizmos. Obviously I need a TV/projector for the TiVo (and speakers for the surround sound) but other than normal appliances these do pretty good for me.

    From Top 5 Friday.

    1. Do you like board games? If so what is your favorite?
    While not actually a board, my favorite is actually Dominoes, which (if you’ve never played) is like playing cards, they’re a million games you can play with one set. As actual board games go Scrabble is probably my favorite regular old board game.

    2. Do you like card games? if so what is your favorite?
    Euchre is probably the only regular card game that I really like. I like Sequence too, but that’s more of a board game.

    3. Do you like computer games? If so what is your favorite?
    Not a big computer gamer. I play Solitaire or Scrabble on my Palm Pilot. I play SameGame on my TiVo (it’s a new option they’re testing) but I can’t find a rendition that playes exactly the same on my computer or Palm.

    4. Do you play role playing games? (EverQuest, MUDs, SIMS, Etc) If so, tell us about the game you are addicted to.
    I used to play the Scott Addam’s text adventure games (not the cartoonist). And I used to play SimCity and get addicted every so often, but not in a long time.

    5. If you do not play games.. how do you pass the time?
    Well, I do. But when I’m not I read, see movies, bike, rollerblade and surf the ‘net.
    Six. Okay, so there wasn’t really a 6 but I didn’t have a category for one of my favorite games.
    It’s trivia, has a board and requires a DVD player: Scene It? It’s the best trivia game out there, games are fast and it’s easy to learn.

    1. What is the URL to your site?
    http://GarySaid.com/

    2. When did you start your site and where was it hosted?
    I use 1and1 web hosting, I’ve been using them since they did a big (free) promotion about two years ago, I’ve since upgraded my service. I’ve been blogging since December of 2003.

    3. Do you have your own domain? What is it called and what is the story behind the domain?
    I have my own domains. The main ones I use are GaryLaPointe.com and GarySaid.com. I started the blog about two years ago but it was originally just a sub-directory of GaryLaPointe.com, I thought it was too long and two complicated and I kept changing the subdirectory as I changed the blog name. I wanted something short and sweet and of the few I tried GarySaid.com was available so I made that my home for blogging. I also wanted to keep my personal blog away from something I might use for my resume and such.

    4. If you are still on a free site… what domain name do you covet?
    Evne though I’m not on a free site, I would like just Gary.com, it’s very short and sweet and it’d fit on a license plate.
