But first, to wake you up: perhaps the worst Also sprach Zarathustra you may have ever heard (1:30).
1. Do You Wear A Watch? The implication is that people wear Rolexes or nothing, that watches are unnecessary in the world of cell phones and other devices that time and that the only people who wear watches do so for style, not function.
For me, though I have a seldom-used device, I would rather wear a watch. the problem, and it is of long-standing duration, is that watches don't seem to like ME. I swear my biorhythms have killed more watches than I thought would be humanly possible. So I don't. But I would.
2. When you were a child, did your parents kiss you? If they did, did they kiss you on the cheeks, the lips, the forehead, or where? If you are a parent/grandparent, where do you kiss your child.
I have no recollection of my father ever kissing me. In fact, on the few times he hugged me, it tended to be of this one-arm variety. My dad kissed my sisters, this peck on the cheek thing generally speaking. My mom kissed me, usually on the cheeks, but occasionally on the forehead.
When she was a baby, I kissed Lydia everywhere. Now I tend to follow her lead. Sometimes it's on the lips, though she told me recently that my beard was scratching her. So now it is usually on the forehead, though yesterday it was on the lips.
A tremendously detailed response to someone who wanted a book banned.
I found this article about NFL schedules being practically set in stone in my Google Alerts; somewhere both the words Roger and green appear. Regardless, it's a good piece about how how the slow start by the former Super Bowl teams is NOT about scheduling parity.
How soon will the daughter want this:
You may recall that the silhouetted version caused a bit of a stir, but the actual doll, not so much.
