It's a quarter of 4 and I'm awake. So I'm starting a new meme and we'll see if it gets anywhere.

1. Pick a celebrity that you'd actually like to talk to.
2. What is the one question you'd really like to ask them.
3. Why?

1. Ram Dass
2. Who wins: Pirates or Sikhs?
3. Because it' s not really a question, it's a game. It tells you a lot about how a person thinks. It spurs discussions. I would be very happy if he metagamed the question entirely, because even that gives information.

Oh dear - I've been tagged!

Once you've been tagged, you have to write a blog entry with five complete lies about yourself. That is, five things about you that are completely not true. Not even slightly. THEN hide in the entry a 6th line, something that is absolutely TRUE and the 1st person to guess which one is true wins :) then tag up to five people you want to turn into compulsive liars too.

1. I have traveled above the Arctic Circle to Tuktoyuktuk, Canada.
2. I have never quit a job before having another job lined up.
3. I am partial to Earl Grey tea and Heffeweissen
4. I once danced in a ballet in public.
5. I have a motorcycle license (endorsement).
6. I cut class in Junior High.

This was actually quite difficult to do. I had a hard time thinking of lies to tell, especially plausible ones. But the lies are not at all true.

I was tagged by [ profile] litharriel

The rules are :

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag three people.

Unlike [ profile] litharriel, who happened to have Ayn Rand's orgasmic prose to hand, in my case the nearest book was atop the pile of recently purchased books on the table here near the computer. This doesn't make much sense without the fourth sentence, so I am including it:

"Morse was close-lipped about who saw and used the 2001 Baker-CFR report, but Amy Jaffe could not help telling me that Morse reported its conclusions in a briefing at the Pentagon. More important, back in early 2001, the initial Baker-CFR report (another participant tipped me) was handed directly to Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney met secretly with CFR task force members go over the maps of Iraq's oil fields. That, apparently, sealed it. Cheney took Morse's CFR/Baker recommendations as his own plan for dissecting Iraq."

I ganked this from [ profile] ar_wahan

You Are A: Lamb!

lambPeaceful and gentle, lambs have been used in religious imagery for millennia. Lambs are baby sheep, an animal tended by shephards since the dawn of history. As a lamb, you tend to stay together in a flock and graze on grassy land. Lambs don't mind being led and tend not to go off on their own.

You were almost a: Duckling or a Mouse
You are least like a: Squirrel or a PuppyWhat Cute Animal Are You?

How sheepish of me...
