Monday Madness - Potpourri

How do you eat an oreo cookie?

I like to dunk them in milk, but that aside, I don't have a special way to eat oreos, save shoving them in my face.

How long does it take you to eat lunch?

It depends on what I'm eating, and what I'm doing while I eat. I can probably down the actual food in about five minutes, unless it's scalding hot.

Caffeine or decaf?

I don't understand the point of decaffeinated beverages. I understand herbal tea -- and I will drink things without caffeine in them, but I just don't get it...What's the point?

Chicken or beef?

This reminds me of the Gilmore Girls episode (called...Actually...Chicken or Beef?) when Dean gets married, and invites Rory and Lorelai. He asks her, "Chicken or beef? Wait, what am I thinking; of course it's beef." And, like Rory, I am all about the beef.

Pen or pencil?

For crossword puzzles, only sissies and posers use pencil. I've been known to use lead for some things, but mostly, I'm an ink girl. This is actually one of those inflexible rules I stand by, but it's not like I'm going to judge you to your face if you feel like you need to use pencil. But for me, it doesn't matter how easy or hard the crossword puzzle is. Mistakes in ink aren't completely unforgivable, but why would I write down words in the boxes if I really felt I might later need an eraser? Like the decaf, I just don't get it. Now, the Cryptoquote is something I'm willing to do in pencil, but I still feel like it's less of a victory than if I finish it in pen.

Autumn or spring?

Autumn, by far, but you're asking me to choose between my two favorite seasons.

Baseball or basketball?

Baseball, but only recently, and I really only care if it's the Red Sox. And care is a word I use loosely.

'Survivor' or 'The Amazing Race?'

Neither, because I don't have a brain defect. I may watch bad TV, but the second I stoop low enough to watch - and enjoy, but probably even just watch - this drivel, you'll know that I've lost all brain function, and are free to institutionalize me.

Come up with one question for our Monday Madness participants in the weeks to come.

They say you learn something new every day. What new thing did you learn today?

Hi! Just wanted to wish you a lovely Monday. Yes I agree, it's quite hard to choose from two equally beautiful seasons. Looking forward to your question for Monday Madness. Take care!

Autumn for President! It was a relief to read about how you feel like you come alive when nature begins its annual wind-down. I thought I was the only backwards one.

For me spring is like Hello Kitty. Annoying but inescapable.

Excellent question! Thank you!
