PromoGuy's Monday Mission 3.05
1. Do you remember the first LP, 45, CD or CD single that you bought? Recreate the scene for me. Goodness...I know I bought it at Tower Records. It is possible it was Michael Jackson's Thriller (it was the 80s...) or the soundtrack to Flashdance. They would have been tapes. I still have the Flashdance tape. I lost the Thriller one...which is not major loss really.
2. What was the last CD or song that you actually paid money for? Um...probably a Depeche Mode CD I got on sale when a store was closing.
3. It is my personal opinion that "Munchos" and "Funions" are the most perfect snack food ever. What do you think is the best snack food ever? Nachos. Cheetos.
4. Comedian George Carlin once pointed we consider the things we like to keep around us to be our "stuff," whereas other people's stuff is just junk to us (ok, he used more colorful language, but you get the idea). What "stuff" do you have that someone else might just throw away if they were cleaning out your house? Probaby most of it. I am a pack rat. I do try to clean out stuff but it's hard. I have a lot of paper things, relating to advertising ideas and whatnot, which most people would probably want to through out but, especially recently, I know that they can be quite useful.
5. Do you think it is wrong for people to rush to e-Bay and start selling Space Shuttle Columbia collectibles? Yes. It's sick and messed up.
6. Does it bother you when President Bush speaks about God and invokes scripture quotations from the Bible during his speeches? Yes. It really does annoy me. As the leader of our country he should keep his personal religious views to himself. Of course even though there is supposed to be a separation of state and religion, it's not quite as true as they'd like us to believe.
7. I have a friend who think's she's being photographed in public restrooms. What paranoid delusion do you have? Um, I don't know. I'm sure I've got at least one but none come to mind at the moment.
Bonus: Can't you feel the weight of my stare? You betcha.

Monday Memories
Do you have a memory about, related to, or triggered by Space, or the Space Program?
I guess the one that stands out is the Challenger explosion. I was in the 4th grade and I remember our teacher brought in a TV to the class to watch the sad event. It was a hard thing to watch, and the Columbia tragedy brought back those feelings and memories.
A less sad memory of space I have is going to the Observatory when I was young and being able to look though one of the big telescopes the astronomers use, and be able to see the moon. The magnification of the telescope was great and you could see all the craters and everything in a very large scale. Also in college I took a few astronomy classes and we had night labs where got to see Saturn, which was very cool as well.
