MEME: Saturday Six -- Episode 85

Image hosted by

Patrick, having oversome the turkey trots in a timely manner, discovered the following speech on his new roll of Charmin® and decided to share the bounty:

“Thanks to all of those who responded to last weeks' first permanent playing of the Saturday Six here in its new home.

“For those who'd like to join in on the fun, playing is simple: you can either answer the questions in this journal or you can answer them in your own blog and leave a link. It is strongly recommended that you answer the journals in your blog and post the link...since several of the people who are playing have relocated away from AOL, it's important that everyone knows where your new (or temporary) blogging homes are, so if you don't mind, leave a first name and your journal's link, just so we can find you easier!

“You don't have to have relocated away from AOL to play: AOL journal writers are as welcome as ever.

“But before the questions, the tradition of the "Saturday Six" is to recognize the first one to play the week before. Meg, of " Friendship, Loyalty and Love " was the first person to play last week. Meg was also a Vivi Award nominee, so be sure to visit her journal. Congratulations, Meg.

Here are this week's "Saturday Six" questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal...but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as "first to play," you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!”

1. Have you ever had a dream that you felt was a message from some "higher power?" Do you think it's possible to receive such messages through dreams?
Nope. How do you have messages from nonexistant entities? It's impossible.
2. How much does a person's musical preference tell you about them?
A little and a lot. Depends on the individual and when they grew up, their exposures to music when young and how much time and money they had to devote to the arts (viz. survival).
3. What time did you get up Friday morning? Were you part of the shopping madness?
I was up early due to the two canine houseguests who live a first shift lifestyle, as opposed to our second shift lifestyle. Still, it beats finding dog poop and pee all over the floors, so I will only grumble a small amount. However, I didn't shop. I hate crowds. Besides, SWMBO worked a split-double and I picked her up at 7AM.
4. Take this quiz: What religion do you fit in with?
The quiz said:You fit in with: Atheism
Your ideals mostly resemble those of an Atheist. You have very little faith and you are very focused on intellectual endeavors. You value objective proof over intuition or subjective thoughts. You enjoy talking about ideas and tend to have a lot of in depth conversations with people. 80% scientific. 60% reason-oriented.

5. Is the answer you received the religion you feel you really do fit in with?
I don't “fit” with any religion. I am not an “atheist” as that implies some sort of organized religion. However, on occasion, particularly after consumption of too much whiskey, I have been known to invoke the Spaghetti Monster.

6. READER'S CHOICE QUESTION #77 from Globetrotter2: Do you have any special nicknames for your significant other when you're annoyed or irritated with them? If so, give us a few of them (NO PROFANITY, please).
Sweetums.” Enough said...

If you have a Reader's Choice question you'd like to see asked (and answered), email it to Patrick! Send it to me and I will invoke the Spaghetti Monster on your hump – and his wrath is awesome to behold!
