The Really You Challenge

really you

Rory has some interesting questions on The Really You challenge, I’m game. (hardeharharhar)

How much Television [alternatively films through the PC/DVD’s or Streamed TV] do you watch per week, month or year?

I don’t watch regularly programmed TV, at all. Haven’t hooked up the cable in over 13 years. We do watch one episode of various old TV shows per evening as part of our night time routine. On Saturdays we splurge and watch a DVD movie. Total less than 7 hours per week. Although now that I read that my inner accountant is going WHOA!!! YOU’RE WASTING 366 HOURS of your year on mindless viewing, surely that time can be put to better use. Hmmmmm we’ll have to see. Continue reading “The Really You Challenge”

Share Your World – The Burning Room

SYW banner

Share Your World

I haven’t done one of these in awhile due to scheduling issues. I’m gonna take a bash at it.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? If you don’t think Heaven nor God exists, you might want answer by saying something outrageous, just for fun!

As an omnist (someone who believes there is beauty and truth in all religions but no one religion is “The Truth”) I am open to the concept of an afterlife. I hope when I arrive they say “Well it’s about time!” Implying that I’ve lived a very long life. 😉 What I’ll probably get?

St. Peter standing guard as I approach “Well JP, here’s the way it is. Heaven doesn’t want you, and Hell’s afraid you’ll take over so we’re sending you back down to earth.  Go try again.”

Insert me skipping back down the pearly walk smiling like a cat that got the canary. Continue reading “Share Your World – The Burning Room”

An Intellectual Spoon Bender FPQ # 15

fpq

Fandango has posed another of those intellectual spoon benders this week.

The fundamental cause of the trouble is that, in the modern world, the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubts.”

Do you concur with Mr. Russell’s perspective? Why or why not?

Well, I’ve read posts by a lot of bloggers whose opinions I respect and, frankly I totally agree with all of them. Continue reading “An Intellectual Spoon Bender FPQ # 15”

Confessions of a serial Tsundokuist

journals 1

Hello, my name is JP and I’m a serial of Tsundokuist. What the heck is that? Glad you asked. From our good friends at Wikipedia:

Tsundoku (Japanese: 積ん読) is acquiring reading materials but letting them pile up in one’s home without reading them.

I read a quote somewhere, sometime ago that one of the greatest treasures of life if a pile of unread books. Oh I agree! When I was a child, I read constantly and adored it. From my mid-teens until my mid thirties, I read mostly “study” stuff. Self help, self improvement, philosophy, religion, with the occasional smut um er, I mean romance novel thrown in for good measure. I enjoyed reading for knowledge but I had forgotten the pure delight of reading just for the fun of it. Continue reading “Confessions of a serial Tsundokuist”

Getting to Know You

getting to know you

So msjadeli over at tao-talk.com tagged me for this episode of Getting-to-know-me, thanks for the tag. Without further ado…

  1. Name a moment in your life when you felt you were most courageous.

I’m not what I consider a brave person. I holler for Superhubs at the site of spiders. I can’t stand scary movies. Yet for reasons I don’t really understand, most of my friends and family consider me brave. I’d like to say that I felt brave that time, when in the midst of heavy gunfire, I ran, snatched a child that was running straight into the path of danger and threw both of us behind cover, but honestly, that was reflex, not bravery. For most people bravery comes in the face of death but, frankly, I’ve stared death in the face enough times that he’s rather like an old uncle, creepy, weird, but familiar. No the only time I’d say I was really courageous was when I, finally, managed to extricate myself and my children from the bonds of a physically abusive marriage. That my friends, took guts.
