    Default Re: My lifestyle questions

    Blockbuster or Netflix or On-demand?
    None of the above. Videos from my local independent video store. Movies on TV (generally Turner Classic movies). Occasionally buy videos on-line

    Do you love Adobe or Microsoft?
    Adobe is much more readable if that's what you mean.

    Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?

    Dark, hands down

    Listen to podcasts?

    I'm not even sure what a podcast is, so evidently not.

    Ever buy a ringtone?

    I assume that has to do with cell phones and I don't have one.

    Buy CDs?

    Too many. I love music.

    Alphabetize CDs?

    Yes, well, that's how they are generally organized: category (jazz, blues, reggae, all the rest), then alphabetized. Most of the time though they are out of control.

    Recycle?

    I try to but don't do as much as I should.

    Use CFLs (Compact Flourescent Lightbulbs)?

    I don't think so.

    Garden?

    No. Although I can appreciate those who do. My dad was always a big gardener.

    How often do you pack lunch for work?

    It varies. Some weeks every day. Other weeks, not at all.

    Take public transportation?

    Absolutely. I'm all for it. I live close enough to work now that I don't have to take the bus, unless the weather is really bad and I will. Otherwise, if public transport will take me somewhere (especially where a car will be a hassle, I'll take it). I wish I didn't have to own a car.

    Amazon.com or library?

    I'd say library, but me and the Denver library are no longer on good terms (they kept saying I was bringing materials back late, when I didn't, and I refuse to pay the late fees for something I didn't do, so I don't check out materials anymore). So Amazon gets some of my business.

    How many lists do you make in a week?

    Maybe one or two. I am not a compulsive list maker but occasionally will do them.

    What’s the most interesting thing you know about someone(living or dead) in your family?

    I don't know. My mom and dad had the same first name and they were married on his birthday.

    Blockbuster but rarely

    Do you love Adobe or Microsoft?
    'dobie

    Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
    Unquestionably DARK

    Listen to podcasts?
    as Big would say - Nyet

    Ever buy a ringtone?
    ditto - Nyet

    Buy CDs?
    no time to listen, music in the car bores me

    Alphabetize CDs?
    no need to

    Recycle?
    a fanatic

    Use CFLs (Compact Flourescent Lightbulbs)?
    got a few the HD box had for pennies on Green Day Those incandescents will be outlawed shortly

    Garden?
    perennials only

    How often do you pack lunch for work?
    have never packed a lunch since Mom made it back in HS

    Take public transportation?
    when I worked in The City, took 2 trains, a ferry and 20 minute walk. I don't work there anymore and am I'm no longer as svelt as I once was either.

    A month ago I lashed out at the oil companies and instead of driving 120 miles to Phily, I took 3 trains to get to the Amtrak depot. I took 4 hours for the trip versus 1:45 driving. I'll not be doing that for a long long time.


    Amazon.com or library?
    eBay

    How many lists do you make in a week?
    what's important - how of the items do you actually get to. Generally, half, excluding the added items that I end up doing that weren't on the list.

    What’s the most interesting thing you know about someone(living or dead) in your family?
    Hah - great grandpa Johann left his family in Germany to come over here to start a new life - when he was ready, Great Granny refused to follow - so he left her behind and started another family over here. Does that mean I'm not legit?

    Cousin Ray - 5-6 place in the '51 NCAAs, 4th in '52. USAF pilot shot down 4/2/65 over Nam and spent 7.5 years a POW. Has worked in the POW/MIA recovery program ever since returning.

    Blockbuster or Netflix or On-demand? On-Demand

    Do you love Adobe or Microsoft? Either

    Dark chocolate or milk chocolate? Milk!

    Listen to podcasts? Nope

    Ever buy a ringtone? Yeah, not as much as I used to, mainly because I hate hearing my phone ring!

    Buy CDs? Yes

    Alphabetize CDs? Nope

    Recycle? I do when I see a recycling bin around, if one can't be found- trash it is.

    Use CFLs (Compact Flourescent Lightbulbs)? Nope, the regular lightbulb is good enough for me.

    Garden? Nah; my grandmother likes to do it for me! :-D

    How often do you pack lunch for work? Rarely, unless I know I'm going to be too busy to stop working during the day.

    Take public transportation? Nope.

    Amazon.com or library? Amazon

    How many lists do you make in a week? The question is how many do I make then actually follow them!

    What?s the most interesting thing you know about someone (living or dead) in your family? My brother was a 3X PA State Champ. Does that count? I think I once was told I was related to Dolly Madison- yes, of donut fame- but also more for her role as First Lady to James Madison.

    Both sides of the house too - Menheusen maternally and pops was from Reutlingen in the heart of Bavaria. With the excellent birth records kept in Germany I've been able to trace the family back to 1557.

    Wasn't she known for ice cream ?




    Don't know if I'd want to be associated with Zingers. Horrible, absolutely horrible

    HAHA- Actually I've never heard of her ice cream! So, I guess I learned something today!

    One thing I did hear about her is that she could throw one hell of a party! ;-)

    On Demand. I'm not a very good borrower

    Do you love Adobe or Microsoft?
    Adobe. I love love love InDesign.

    Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
    Milk. Dark makes me sick (no comments, please, Ezra)

    Listen to podcasts?
    No

    Ever buy a ringtone?
    Yep.

    Buy CDs?
    Not anymore
    Alphabetize CDs?
    I organized them by genre, not alphabetically
    Recycle?
    Yes. I'm also a huge fan of reusable grocery bags.

    Use CFLs (Compact Flourescent Lightbulbs)? When my bulbs burn out at my current place, I will.

    Garden? No.

    How often do you pack lunch for work? MAybe once a week.

    Take public transportation? Not to work, but yes.

    Amazon.com or library? Amazon.com. Again, I'm a bad borrower.

    How many lists do you make in a week? 4-5

    What’s the most interesting thing you know about someone(living or dead) in your family? This is tough...I'm distantly related to Wild Bill Hickok, though my favorite family story is that my grandparents were married in 1930. My grandma had a job, and my grandpa didn't, so they got married on her lunch hour, because if she took time off work during the depression, she would have lost her job.
