From Monday Madness:
Let me preface this by saying . . . I don't mean to be ambiguous with some of my answers, but some cannot be answered with a simple choice between one or the other.
1. Do you prefer to be out in the sun or in the shade?
I prefer the sun for a while (with a good sunscreen - this pale Irish skin does burn and freckle - quickly and easily), but after a bit of heat and blazing sun, I still enjoy the outdoors in a shady spot.
2. Regarding the walls in your house, do you prefer neutral colors or bright colors?
I hate white walls but, as a professional interior designer, I must say that any colour can be considered a neutral, depending upon the context it is used. I think the word "bright" is a little hazy in its meaning – but, I do prefer deep, rich, dark colours for my walls.
3. When hanging pictures on your walls, do you like things symmetric or asymmetric?
Symmetry has its place, depending upon the vignette it accompanies. As for a grouping of pictures, painting and other wall art, I much prefer an asymmetrical design - it is more pleasing to the eye (imo).
4. How about where you'd like to live; country or city?
Definitely in the country (with acreage) but close enough to the conveniences of city living.
5. Your blog; Blogger, Blogdrive, Blog-City, or another one altogether?
I have three at Blogger, one at Xanga, and another one somewhere else (I'll have to get back with you on that).
6. Email; Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, or other?
Several Yahoo accounts, I let all of my Hotmail accounts deactivate, and I just received to Gmail accounts - plus, I have e-mails through my own server, as well as my ISP server.
7. Air conditioning or just a fan when it's hot at night?
Crank down the A/C to frigid, turn up the ceiling fan to high, then layer on the linens!
8. Dinner; seafood or steak?
Depending upon my mood - I adore both!
9. Your all-time favorite music media; CD's, cassette tapes, or vinyl (or 8-tracks)?
LPs are still my favorite, with CDs a close (and more convenient) second.
10. When learning a new software program, do you find it easier to follow a book or an online tutorial?
Neither - I usually just use the trial-and-error method. I learn better from hands-on, first-hand experience. If all else fails, I'll consult the manual.
current mood: Still Exhausted (still awake - insomnia sucks!)
current music: Total (1:00 a.m.) Silence
