The Would You Rather Meme, Part One

Just back from a lovely weekend in Sydney with Geetangeli and Richard. A stunning weekend with lots of great company, food and a stunning day to walk about Sydney Harbour. I also managed to meet up with one of my classmates from last term's tute group. Had a lovely afternoon sharing ideas.

And this time next week I will be on a plane to Thailand. YAY.

So here I am, it's 10.15 pm and I haven't started my blog post.

Finally, Sunday Stealing has come up with some great questions.

Would you rather go into the past and meet your ancestors or go into the future and meet your great-great grandchildren? 

As I will never have grandchildren, it has to be meet my ancestors. Mind you, I've just started a history subject and I'm thinking about looking at my great uncles who were involved in World War II. I'd love to meet Uncle Roy and Uncle Keith.

Would you rather have more time or more money? 

More time. Another day to the week to do the house work would be awesome.

Would you rather have a rewind button or a pause button on your life? 

A pause button. You can't go back on things. At least a pause button would give you a chance to catch up on things and consider consequences before you went ahead with things.

Would you rather be able to talk with the animals or speak all foreign languages? 

As I've never met an animal that I didn't like (okay, other than my mother's old cat - she was a bitch) I would love to know what they're thinking. I speak a smattering of a couple of languages and I get them muddled, so what is the point.

Would you rather win the lottery or live twice as long? 

Win the lottery. Unless you're young and can cure an incurable disease, why would you want to live twice as long. Growing old is not for sissies. At least you can make a good life for yourself and your family with the money.

Would you feel worse if no one showed up to your wedding or to your funeral? 

I think it would be awful if nobody turned up to my funeral. I can't see myself getting married anyway.

Would you rather be without internet for a week, or without your phone? 

I'd forgo the phone. If you have to call somebody you can talk over skype.

Would you rather meet George Washington, or the current President?

George Washington. If I was to meet our current Prime Minister I think I would get into a lot of trouble for basically wanting to do very nasty things to him, horrid man that he is. (This is not Obama, he looks lovely. Our current wanker of a Prime Minister isn't fit to clean my toilet - not that he would as cleaning the loo is women's work in his eyes. Hate Tony Abbott.)

Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? 

Hearing. I would go mad if I couldn't read.

Would you rather work more hours per day, but fewer days or work fewer hours per day, but more days? 

I could work ten hour days and work a four day week at the moment. I don't think I would be that productive. Four nine hour days and one four hour day - now there's an idea!

Would you rather listen to music from the 70’s or music from today?

Music from the 70s. I could listen to music like this. YEAH! (RIP Shirley)

Would you rather become someone else or just stay you? 

Just stay me. I'm good with that.

Would you rather be Batman or Spiderman?

Hmm, that all depends on the version of Batman or Spiderman. I used to love the original Adam West Batman - but the Spiderman cartoon on Saturday mornings used to be great too. Too hard that question.

Would you rather be stuck on a broken ski lift or in a broken elevator? 

Broken elevator. At least you're not at the mercy of the elements. Please don't tell my claustrophobia this...

For your birthday, would you rather receive cash or gifts?

As much as I like receiving cash for my birthday, nothing beats a well thought out gift.

Have a great time in Thailand. :o) And your Prime Minister hadn't better meet up with you and another Aussie who answered these questions. Lol. Loved your answers, especially the one about the pause button. Very well said.
