Here we go again...
Monday Mission
1. How old will you be on your next birthday? 2-6...eeek.
2. One of the presents I was given for my birthday was a "George Foreman Grill." I've always joked about them, so it was kind of a joke gift. But it turns out, it is a really neat little grill. Then it hit me, this is a gadget, except it is for the kitchen. Then I thought about it and realized that "gadgets" aren't just techno-toys, gadgets are everywhere. What is your favorite gadget? Hmm. I guess it would be my coffee maker ;o)
3. Tell me about someone that you lost touch with several years ago. Would you like to get back in touch with them again? What caused the separation? Has enough time passed? Would you still get along? I had a great friend when I was in high school. We kept in touch for a while during college, but then she dropped off the face of the earth. Apparently some of our mutual friends had run into her and she seemed as though she wanted nothing to do with anyone she used to know. After hearing about that, and her behaviour towards them, I don't think I'd want to be friends again with her. Unless she had a good reason for acting like a bitch.
4. I've not met many online friends in real-life (I.R.L.), but I've always assumed we'd get along great if we met. But then again, if we would since my online personality  (brash, outgoing) seems so different from how I see my RL offline version (introverted). Is there a difference between your online personality and your real-life version? Or are you pretty much the same person either way? I don't think there is much of a difference for me. I'm pretty much the same. Maybe a bit more shy, but overall I think I'm the same.
5. Being the quiet type, I have often felt like the online world has given me a greater chance to meet people I'd never meet IRL. In fact, I would bet that I would have never met any of you IRL if we had been in the same bookstore or coffee shop. So in that sense, I think the Internet has helped inter-personal communication for many people. Can you think of any ways that the Internet hinders person-to-person communication? What could we do to change things? Hinders...I guess it hinders person-to-person communication just because there are many subtle things you get from talking to a person, in person, that you don't get from text, like tone of voice, facial expressions, body language, etc.
6. Last night, about 1AM I was overcome with this amazing sense of inner peace. I hadn't prayed, or done anything spiritual, yet, I felt like life was truly good and things could only get better. It seemed like I was given a mental "nudge" as if to say, "You're doing great kid, stay with it and everything will keep getting better." When was the last time you felt truly happy, or had that sense of perfect inner-peace? What does it take to get that feeling back when you need it? The last time i felt inner peace- man I have no idea. It must have been a while ago. I wish I knew what I could do to get it back. :-/
7. There are times when I just want to tell someone off. I don't usually, since I have to work with them. Sometimes it is a family member and that would be even worse on down the road if I cut loose. If you could just verbally let loose on someone and be able to say anything you want, without repercussions, who would you say it to and what would you say? There's a few things I could say but right now and right here, it's not the time.
BONUS: Are we alive or just a dying planet? Can't we be alive on a dying planet...

Monday Memories
Were you ever in a school play? Or a concert? Or an amateur theatre production? Did you ever perform live somewhere? Did you see such a performance?
Back in school, I was in many plays, chorus, and the sort. I loved it. I love acting. I miss it. I've often thought about getting involved in the community theatre here. I've done musicals, one-acts (we had a competition for it every year I was in high school - I went to states twice and even won two awards for best costume design and make-up design!), did the school chorus (my voice is only okay when mixed in with lots of other good singers!), did a play in college, was involved in community theatre groups and I have even taken some acting classes. Man that was an experience!! I did it in Los Angeles one summer while staying with family and some of the kids in there- whoo boy!- they thought they were the king shit just because they had been in a McDonalds commerical. *lol* Made me laugh! It was fun though, except for the fact they made you watch yourself on tape- I hated that part. Theatre plays a big roll in my life, either going to see plays and musicals, or reading plays and that kind of thing. There's something fun and wonderful about escaping to somewhere else and pretending to be someone with different characteristics and challenges.
