Answers to Questions
Do you want to have dinner sometime soon?
Why yes, that would be lovely! But not until next week, as I'm going out of town this weekend.

What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Would that be an African or a European swallow?

When will there be new HNT pix?
Let's hope for thursday!

Are you being shaken down this spring?
Erm... yes, I think so, is that where I'm going this weekend?  Or are we having an unrelated conversation?

What do you do with a drunken sailor, early in the morning?
Honey, I'll never tell. But it was SO worth it.

Why haven't you done up your hair like a Troll yet? Don't you want to get lucky?
I'm not sure I can achieve that hair style! But it might be an excellent thing to try... maybe at a con.

How's your neck/gland thing?
Much better than it was, though still irksome sometimes. Haven't quite decided what if anything to do about that.  I keep hoping that it will stop irking.

When are you coming back to Texas or better, Austin?
I don't know -- from what I've heard about the weather, it had either been soon, or not until fall.

why?

Because for all its chaos, life is beautiful.

What... sort of trolls? And lucky personally, or bringing good luck?
Trolls that look like this. And I believe they bring good luck. I've never asked one if she was lucky personally.  Perhaps I should.

How do you take care of your hair?
I wash it with a random cheap shampoo that smells nice. Then I condition it with Pantene Pro V. I use a wide-toothed comb to brush it while wet, and then I mostly ignore it (aside from frequent hand-running or tugging), hoping it will treat me well for the next day or two.

What do you see ahead for you and F?
A fun motorcycle trip this weekend!

Do you know how fast you were going back there?
My goal is 77 mph. So probably somewhere around that.

Do you vote every major election?
No. I vote for presidents, and when I make the time to look into the issues, I vote in smaller elections. Sadly, this does not happen often.

Do you rollerblade?
I have rollerbladed in my past. It's been a few years, but I own rollerblades. I also bought a funky set of wheels which I want to attach to an old pair of figure skating boots. But I haven't done this yet.

How's the treadmill payment plan going?
I've only paid off $105 so far, and that was at least a week ago. Which is nothing to scoff at, but I'm behind schedule. Fortunately when I'm not walking, it's usually because I'm out doing cool things.

Rock, paper or scissors?
Scissors. They are small, fierce, and tricky, and they will win the battle every time.

How much Wood would Chuck chuck, if Chuck chucked wood?
Well he split wood sunday night, but I'm not sure how much wood he split. Then we burned the evidence, so I can't even go back and count it.

Do you WANT to buy a motorcycle?
Yes, I think I do... the problem is that I have no idea how much money I want to spend on the barely-beginning of a hobby.  I don't have a budget, and haven't settled on "this number would be okay".  I also don't know what kind I want. I need the goldilocks motorcycle, not too big, not too small, and conveniently waiting for me to scurry home with when I break and enter into some bears' house.

Why's the grass green?
Something about the texture of grass is such that all the light that hits it is absorbed -- except for the green light, which is reflected back into our eyes. It will be upside-down on our retina, but the brain is clever enough to interpret this as right-side-up green.

Will I see you this weekend?
Alas, no, unless you're planning on riding a motorcycle to SE Ohio somewhere.

Should I lie to you?
Come on and lay with me, come on and lie to me.  Tell me you love me.  Say I'm the only one.  Experience is a lasting impression. Words once spoken, don't mean a lot now.  Believe has become the way of the innocent.  And when I say innocent, I should say naive. So lie to me, but do it with sincerity.  Make me listen, just for a minute -- make me think there's some truth in it.

leathers or cordura?
Leather all the way baby!  It's hawt.

How's the weather up there?
Today was cool, with occasional showers.

Why?
Because your picture was cute, and you spelled feat wrong.

Can you please discuss the primary tennants and philosophies of Rennieism?
Sure, but it might take a post by itself.  The basic First Truth of Rennieism is simple: do no harm.  The Second one is equally easy: encourage joy.

Let's apply these in a real-life situation.  Say you see a friend engage in an action or lifestyle that you don't "approve of".  You ask yourself two questions.  "Is she hurting anyone, including herself?"  and "Is she happy?"  If the answers are "no" and "yes" respectively, then you must let her live her life.  It isn't your business. 

The Third Truth of Rennieism: love and be loved in returnAll of these combine (hopefully) to help promote peace and happiness.  Such trite words these days, with such depth and need hidden within.

Okay, that's it for questions so far.  That was fun!  Got any others questions?  I'm screening the comments to this entry, and welcoming anonymous questions also.  Ask me anything.
