Re: Introduce yourself here! December 2015

Re: Introduce yourself here! December 2015

1. What are you doing for the end of year break?

Already posted in the other thread, but another thing I'm gonna do is some reading. I never make time for it during the year except when I'm on a break.

 

2. What is your favourite living thing that is not an animal? 

If we extend the definition of 'living' a bit, then I pick the earth. It's a pretty cool place to live and sustains a whole bunch of life on it.

 

3. If you had a brainwashing machine, who would you use it on? 

If it was a multi-use thing, then I'd probably use it first for something minor like brainwashing my coworker into not asking me what I did over the weekend if I don't elaborate on my own. I'd have to see how that went before trying it out on anything else. I'd also probably have to write up a huge list of questions for myself to answer to figure out if it's a scenario where I can safely use the machine without disadvantaging other people in a major way or violating their rights or something.

 

If it was a one-time use thing, then I'd save it up for an emergency and just get started on the list.

 

4. What is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning? 

The curtain.

 

5. What's one random thing you know about the forum Member who posted in this thread before you?

They sometimes work at a yoghurt store. I haven't had yoghurt in forever, so feel free to send some this way Smiley Tongue

I would brainwash my dog into speaking English so she can call me and talk to me on the phone while I'm out hahaha

Usually the ceiling or my draws, depends on the position I've slept in that night.

Education ministers to change the times of schools to begin at 9am or 10am, after one would naturally wake up.

Darkness and despair, Smiley Tongue not really, just my room. The despair comes from realising I have to get up and go to school. (Should I mention again how actually cold it is and how difficult that is? Smiley Tongue)

They're a mod. Smiley Tongue

Re: Introduce yourself here! December 2015

1. What are you doing for the end of year break

I will be working for a majority of the time but do get a little break over Christmas, so during this little break I will be enjoying the sun and spending time with friends and family!

 

2. What is your favourite living thing that is not an animal? 

Oh... this is a hard one, my passionfruit vine I suppose. Which does sound a little odd but it is thriving and hiding my hideous shed which is an added bonus!

 

3. If you had a brainwashing machine, who would you use it on? 

Well I am getting married next year, and would love to have our reception in a fancy venue but can't justify spending the money on this. So, quite selfishly I would use the brainwashing machine on the owner of a fancy venue on the river somewhere or maybe in the Swan Valley and brainwash them into giving me the venue for free! 

 

4. What is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning? 

The alarm flashing it's 5am get your lazy bum out of bed!

They are studying, and going a good job at it I believe!

Finishing up at my part-time job, and then going overseas with my family for about 3 weeks! I'm hoping to get back into Pilates/a regular exercise routine too.

 

2. What is your favourite living thing that is not an animal? 

I love little succulent plants - they are so cute!

 

3. If you had a brainwashing machine, who would you use it on? 

People who make any sort of discriminatory comments, and climate change skeptics!

 

 

4. What is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning? 

My phone and the alarm on it.
