1,2,3,4 must be Friday

Q1 - Automobiles: A gallon of gasoline weighs just over 6 pounds. When burned, the carbon in it combines with oxygen from the air to produce nearly 20 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2). With that in mind, and with the price of gasoline continually on the rise, how likely is it that the next car you buy will be a hybrid?

The probability of that likelihood would be 0%.

Q2- Television: How many channels are on your television, and approximately how many of them do you watch on a somewhat regular basis?

I think we have, like, 2,793 cable channels on our family room TV. We are completely wearing out the one that airs the Simpsons 24/7. The Discovery Channel does get watched at times, as does one that shows The Prince of Belair and Malcom in the Middle re-runs.

Q3- What is your favorite spot to doze off for a nap?

Summer afternooon: On the hammock at Cultus.

Winter afternoon: My bed.

Spring afternoon: The couch in the family room.

Autumn afternoon: The broom closet

Q4- Right Now: What is the closest object to your left hand?

Right now? It would have to be the left side of the keyboard.

Seconds before that, though, while I was thinking about my answer to question 3, my left hand was holding up my head. My elbow was on the desk and my chin was resting in the palm of my left hand.

I think maybe I should try harder to make these answers more interesting, so as to capture your attention and have you exclaim in surprise, "Good golly, this gal is witty."

OK, with that in mind, my left hand is very close my left wrist.

Errhm. The object closest to my left hand is ...................the left sleeve of my hoody.

Oh, wait. On my left side is ................................................a pile of papers that need attention.

Know what? The problem isn't so much with my answers, it's the retarded question in the first place. If the question was "What do you see when you turn your head to the left?" well that would make all the difference in the world.

To my left is a stack of Oprah magazines that I have not yet looked through. I was hoping to do that this evening but because of the fire that is breaking out on the shelf above them, from the candle that was knocked over by the swinging gorilla hopped up on steriods fighting with the hippo jacked up on viagra...I guess I won't have a chance.
