Take Comfort...

| | Comments (0)

Which is more comforting for you...

1. Lying down on the couch, or stretching out on a recliner?
er, whichever
2. Going barefoot or wearing soft slippers?
sox! (woollen slippers in winter, barefeet or sox in summer)
3. Eating ice cream, or pizza?
Ice cream
4. Watching on TV...a classic movie or a reality show?
Depends on your definition of "classic movie" :) I'd probably rather watch a favourite movie than a reality show, but then I watch Survivor religiously
5. Wearing: blue jeans or sweat pants?
I wear jeans all day, every day
6. A long, soothing bubble bath or a quick, invigorating shower?
I don't have the patience for baths. I've been here two years and never used the bath. And a I need a shower to wake up in the morning :)
7. Furniture: leather, or something more on the fuzzy side?
Fuzzy. Leather's nice but it's not quite as cosy and comforting
8. Soft, classical music, or upbeat rock & roll?
trance? :)
9. Darkness or light?
In what situation? For sleep and fireworks dark is good. For working up close with hobbies light is good.
10. Thought-provoking question of the week: You get married, or otherwise begin cohabitating with a significant other. S/he moves into your place, but brings with them the UGLIEST chair you have ever seen! You really don't want this thing in your home, but SO says it is the most comfy chair s/he has ever sat in, and no way will they part with it. Do you: grin and bear it, or scheme to get rid of the montrosity somehow?
I'd probably bear it, but would try and find somewhere out of the way for it.. maybe.

This or That:

1. Yummier: Chocolate ice cream or strawberry cheesecake?
Strawberry cheesecake
2. Better to watch on TV: Movies or sports?
Movies for sure! Sports? yuk! ;)
3. A better web browser: MSIE or Netscape (or tell us your own favorite!)
Well I'm against IE on principle, but I use it cause it's quicker to load. I used to use Netscape 3 until only very recently, as Netscape 4+ were just bloatware. And I also designed web pages for Netscape 3, cause I figured if they worked there they'd work anywhere
4. A better way to travel: Automobile or bus/train?
Depends where you're going. I'll drive just about anywhere unless it's difficult to get parking (eg the city)
5. Your preferred camera: Digital or film?
Digital
6. A Cooler Vehicle: Motorcycle or sports car?
Sports car (WRX specifically)
7. More fun: Video games or board games?
Probably board games
8. Sexier: A perfect body or an intelligent mind?
Intelligent mind
9. A stinkier smell: Skunk or gasoline (petrol)?
Never smelt a skunk
10. Thought-provoking question of the week: What is more important to you: making a ton of money and being at the top of your field, or finding your soulmate and living a comfortable but not wealthy life?
Finding a soulmate

1. File taxes as early as possible, or wait until the last possible minute?
I always mean to get them done early, but somehow they always get done at the last minute
2. File electronically, or mail paper forms?
E-tax! Haven't filled in a paper tax return in years
3. Prepare your own taxes, or have someone do it for you?
Do it all myself
4. Are you a saver or a spender?
Saver
5. Do you prefer to carry cash, or pay with plastic (credit/debit cards), or by check?
I tend to prefer plastic
6. You're broke and desperately need a job, but the only places that are hiring are retail or fast food places. Which would you pick?
If I were that desperate for a job chances are I wouldn't have a choice anyway. But anyway I don't think care whichever of those two
7. Keeping track of your money: are you more meticulous or careless about it?
I'm fairly careful
8. What do you do if you find yourself with a lot of change weighing down your purse/pocket/wallet? Do you try to spend it to *get rid of it*, or do you put it in a jar or a piggy bank?
I spend it, I try to buy things using exact change when possible
9. Which form of fake money do you like better...Monopoly money or those chocolate coins covered with gold foil?
I like the thick wads of cash you can get with monopoly money, but nothing beats being able to eat your cash :)
10. Thought-provoking question of the week: You find a wallet containing $5,000 in cash, as well as several credit cards and the owner's drivers' license. Your rent is due tomorrow and you're short $200. Do you take the money (some or all of it) and mail back the wallet anonymously...or do you return the wallet with all contents intact?
I'd return it contents intact. Although I'd be sorely tempted to ask the owner for a small bonus for finding it

It's still Tuesday in oz.. normally we don't see the This or That's til Wednesday..

1. Sexier (female)...Pamela Anderson or Jennifer Garner? Well Pamela Anderson is a bit of a turn off, so Jennifer Garner I guess
2. Sexier (male)...Ben Affleck or Matt Damon? Neither really do it for me, but probably Matt Damon more
3. The better piano player...Billy Joel or Elton John? I've seen Billy Joel in concert once and it was awesome, so I'll say him
4. Funnier...David Letterman or Craig Kilborn? Don't watch either
5. The dumber cartoon cat...Stimpy (of *Ren & Stimpy*) or Tom (of *Tom & Jerry*)? Dunno
6. A better news anchor...Tom Brokaw or Dan Rather? Who writes this stuff? More international people, please, some of us have never heard of these dudes
7. A better TV chef...Emeril Lagasse or Jacques Pepin? See above
8. The trashier talk show host...Maury Povich or Jerry Springer? Who knows, never watched them (I don't even think they're on in australia)
9. The worse fast food burger joint...McDonald's or Burger King? I think Burger King makes slightly better burgers (more veggies), but McDonalds have perfected the French Fry
10. Thought-provoking question of the week: Only a handful of U.S. Presidents have been considered to be *great* Of the following two, which one do you consider to be greater...Franklin D. Roosevelt or Abraham Lincoln? Why? Well I couldn't even tell you what Roosevelt achieved in his lifetime, so I guess I'd have to say Lincoln

Well that was a rather silly one (again). If this poor standard keeps up I probably won't keep up This or That.

This or That has moved to http://this-or-that.org/.. and takes a turn for the "huh?"

1. The Bogey-Man or Henry Kissinger? in what context?
2. Whips 'n chains or soft ropes with furbound cuffs? I'd probably have to go for the soft stuff
3. Fish sticks or Amazon.com? Well I used to have fish sticks as a kid.. never bought anything from amazon though
4. Whitewall tires or color TV? colour tv
5. Leather or lace? how about both - one under, one over? :)
6. Abraham Lincoln or leftover turkey? er, turkey I guess
7. Movable Type or Star Trek? Star Trek!
8. Happy Happy Joy Joy or Bounce Bounce Bounce like Tigger? Well I've been known to bounce and say "happy happy joy joy"
9. The Michelin Man or the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man? hehe staypuff - we even named the old godzilla/old gamera server staypuff cause it's big and white :)
10. Thought-Provoking Question of the Week: If you HAD to marry one of the talking M&M's in the TV commercials, would it be the red one or the yellow one? Why? What are their personalities again? I think the tall one is nice but a bit dumb? I think I'd prefer someone more outgoing/ambitious/self confident

urgh guys what are you doing, these are just getting weird!
