Question of the Day #1,345

When I met my friend for lunch, she was shivering. I came from the west where it was chilly and she came from further inland where it was hot.

Are there micro-climates where you live?

Question of the Day #1,344

Today marks the end of Venus in retrograde. For a Taurus, like me, that's good. I'm hoping that Venus in retrograde was responsible for making me feel like I've been slamming into walls every day for the last six weeks.

Are you rolling your eyes as you read this? Or are you nodding in agreement? How do you feel about Astrology?

Question of the Day #1,343

Once upon a time, several years ago, at a taco shack in Honolulu, I had the most amazing fish tacos ever. The fish tasted like ocean. The cabbage crunched and the sauce...oh, the sauce. It was light, yet savory, with a tiny kick. I could have drank a cup of it.

Every few days, I think about these fish tacos. If I could afford it, I'd go back to Honolulu just for the tacos.

What meal was so good that you can't forget it?

Question of the Day #1,341

Like a dork, I somehow I got a sunburn. I was only out on the beach for a few minutes. I am now a lovely shade of electric pink.

Question of the Day #1,337

Yesterday, I was shocked to find that my supermarket suddenly stopped carrying my favorite ice cream, Haagen Dazs White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle.

What do you think the universe is trying to tell me?

Question of the Day #1,336

Recently, Facebook began charging people with Facebook business pages to "promote" posts. Meaning business owners now have to pay for their fans to see posts that used to come up in newsfeeds for free.

What crappy business move has an entity made that forced you to question your loyalty?

Question of the Day #1,332

At a BBQ, friends recently described bad date stories. Like one friend, who after meeting someone on and emailing a lot, finally exchanged phone numbers with the guy. He promptly sent her a naked pic of himself.

Another friend was driven almost two hours to have lunch at a taco stand.

A guy friend took a friend (who was a girl) out on what he thought was a date only to realize that his friend had no idea it was a date. He realized she didn't see him that way AT ALL.

Have you ever been on an awful date?

Question of the Day #1,331

I was just on a conference call during which one of the attendees kept referring to me as "Stephanie."

What makes you doubt someone's abilities?

Fastest. Day. Ever.

How would you describe your day?

Question of the Day #1,329

My Internet is intermittent. Which is driving me nuts because it's kind of hard to work when you can't connect. So I call Verizon and answer 4,000 automated questions. I finally get to a human being. He says he's testing the DSL line and the call gets dropped.

And he doesn't call back. Right after I verified my callback number.

I'm too annoyed to call back.

What annoys you too much to deal with?

Question of the Day #1,328

It's like this
The scene is the same
All the usual faces, banter, noise
The door opens
It's not you
Heaviness spins from my head
to my heart
I want to leave
But stay
Pieces of yesterdays
Other Saturday nights
Blur by
Music blaring
Waves crashing
Tears coming
I take deep breaths
Hoping it will pass

What scene are you trying to shake?

Question of the Day #1,327

Well, it was bound to happen sometime. For the first time in about 3 1/2 years, I forgot to post a Question of the Day.

That's a first.

What "first" have you encountered lately?

Question of the Day #1,326

Tonight, I'm having a burger with a friend who I see fairly often, but rarely one on one. It could actually be years since I've had him all to myself. And I'm super excited!

Who do you rarely get to spend time with by yourself?


Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Question of the Day #1,325

I got up at 5:00 AM and now I'm all thrown off. Grouchy, not so bright and oh so sleepy.

How many hours of sleep do you require?

Am I the only person who has trouble understanding all the propositions on voting ballots?

Question of the Day #1,323

This weekend, I attended the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. The five hour show included debut burlesque dancers, duos, troupes, icons and all stars and an award ceremony featuring the crowning of Miss Exotic World 2012.

The totally entertaining show was part pin-up girl, part toe shoes, part modern dance with a dash of tap and a whole lot of tassels and glitter. The entire audience dressed in glamour gowns. And a giant blue male bunny hosted the event wearing four inch stripper heels.

When have you felt like you landed on another planet?

Question of the Day #1,322

One of my favorite parts about a roadtrip home is rehashing events of the trip. The, "What? You didn't see that?" And the, "He said that?" And the, "Oh yeah, but did you see when that guy did ___________?"

It makes the fact that you feel like you're driving backwards much easier to deal with.

What's your favorite part of the roadtrip home?

Question of the Day #1,321

Heading to Vegas. Of course, when I think of Las Vegas, I think, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

What city slogans stick with you?

Question of the Day #1,320

On my walk today, I passed a pink, white and yellow wildflower garden snuggled on the side of a house. A woman sat on the front porch.

"Your flowers are gorgeous!" I said.

"Thank you! I planted them for the people who walk by. I can't see them from here." She smiled at me.

What do you do just for other people's benefit?
