“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

I know, I know, I normally reserve these for MySpace.  But, it’s been slow lately. I have had a lot of work to do.  And trust me, you do not want me to blog about my job.  Unless you are a completely entrenched insomniac.

 So, stolen from Sarah, who stole this one from Bub and Pie . . .

1. You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out
of existence. Which one will it be?

Wow. Only one? Hmmm.  I would say Jessica Simpson.  I am interpreting the term musical artist very, very loosely.

2. You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie celebrity of your
choice. We are talking no-strings-attached sex and it can only happen
once. Who is the lucky celebrity of your choice?

Tough choices, tough choices.  I am going to say Heath Ledger.  Because all my other faves are close to my age, and in my fantasies, I might just have a shot.  But Heath is so far out of my league and age group, I can’t even fantasize.  Demi Moore, I am not.

3. You have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your
choice. Who do you pick?

I’m with Sarah on this one – Harry Connick Jr.  Plus I dig a New Orleans accent.

4. Now that you’ve slept with two different people in a row, you seem
to be having an excellent day because you just came across a
hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy shit, a hundred bucks! How
are you gonna spend it?

Toys for my son.  I have a list right here…

5. You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart
right now. Where are you gonna go?

Rome.  Spirituality, art, food and fashion rolled into one package.  Mama, mia, I couldn’t resist.

6. Upon arrival to the aforementioned location, you get off the plane
and discover another hundred-dollar bill. Shit! Now that you are in
the new location, what are you gonna do?

Trattoria and some good Italian food.  I can’t help it – I grew up in New York.

7. The Angel of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel
of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a
half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. Whatcha gonna do
in that half-hour?

I would write a letter to my son, telling him how I will love him forever and how he was the best thing to ever happen to my sorry life – because otherwise he will never remember me. Then kiss my son and my husband goodbye.

8. You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good,
and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of
your choice! What’s it gonna be?

Healing.  There are so many sick people in my life right now.

9. You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can
only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you
like to experience again?

Wow. That’s tough.  I’ve had a good run of it.  Hard to pick one half-hour event.  I would have to pick a half hour on the first date I had with my husband.  It was a very, very good date.

10. Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth.
You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and
what are you going to do when you get there?

11th century Scandinavia.  And I am going to knock down rich people and steal their clothes to bring back.

11. You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?

I would like to say Katrina, but the aftermath was more complex than that – I am not entirely sure I could erase it.  I have one other horrible experience I would like to erase, but I am going to keep that to myself.  It involves old lovers, and trust me, you don’t want to know.

12. You got kicked out of the country for being a time-traveling
heathen who sleeps with celebrities and has super-powers. But check
out this cool shit… you can move to anywhere else in the world!
Bitchin’! What country are you going to live in now?

Spain. It would give me a chance to refresh my Spanish skills and spend hours in the Prado.  

13. The constant absorption of magical moonbeams mixed with the
radioactive vegetables you consumed earlier has given you the ability
to resurrect the dead famous-person of your choice. So which celebrity
will you bring back to life?

Either Martin Luther King, Jr. or Ghandi.  Because the world needs a peacemaker right about now.

14. What’s your theme song?

I have been told Killer Queen, by Queen, but I didn’t pick that.  Probably “Gotta Be” by Des’ree.
