Zookept

Where would you rather spend the day: Aquarium (1) or Zoo (2) ?

strawpoll

Response: 1 For a break from life in the zoo.

What with Emperor Precious, chillin’ Dylan, whiney Tiny, Lady the tramp, little boy Blue, sweetie Cuddles, birdie Gertie, and our very own hippo Butterball, I’m in the zoo day in and day out.
 
Besides, what actuary wouldn’t love taking a dip with the sharks?

Windows, the Non-Crashing Version

leave a comment »

Where do you prefer to sit when you fly: Window (1) or Aisle (2) ?

strawpoll

Response: 1 Adding my own images to my copy of http://snurl.com/9lps6.

Not that I fly all that much anymore. Except in my head. Where I also prefer the window seat. 3A if that one’s not yet occupied, please.

Temporarily Anti-Social

leave a comment »

What social network do you belong to: MySpace (1) or Facebook (2)?

strawpoll

Response: 2 Only for th brief breath it should take until there’s something (not myspace) better.

I only let myself get dragged into Facebook out of wanting a plausible micro-blogging alternative to the censor-happy Twitter. Alas, beneath all the hoopla pop, Facebook is as weak on its micro-blogging as it is on all else, so much so that recently it even attempted to buy out Twitter, after the style of Microsoft vs Yahoo: as in, if you can’t program it adequately on your own, then buy (or steal) it; while the intended victim gnaws on its own entrails.

But I’m only visiting, not moving in. Facebook is already fast going in the ditch the suicidal LiveJournal has been digging: instead of reaching up and out from a smooth college culture to the professional and sophisticated spheres, Facebook is headed for turning into a MySpace wannabe: a cute little playground for the kiddies, but not where anyone over the age of 14 would care to admit to belonging, unless you’re they to watch over your children.

Treat Me to a Trick

leave a comment »

Which part of Halloween are you looking more forward to: Trick (1) or Treat (2) ?

strawpoll

Response: 1 You can’t reach an old dog with new treats.

Whereas we’ve seen enough monsters, goblins, ghouls, zombies, and other abominations wallowing in the grave the GOP is digging itself into this year to last us a lifetime of Halloweens.

Bookish

leave a comment »

Are you currently reading a book: Yes (1) or No (2) ?

strawpoll

Response: 1 Dawson’s Practical Lessons in Actuarial Science http://tinyurl.com/5kogmh

  Whereas, a hundred years after mine was published, nobody will remember. Dawson knew how to pick a subject that survived his own lifespan. Good actuarial sense, that.

What’s On My Mind?

leave a comment »

If you could read the minds of one gender (think Mel Gibson in What Women Want): men (1) or women (2) ?

strawpoll

Response: 2 Because I prefer roller coasters over merry-go-rounds.

“Women are irrational, that’s all there is to that! Their heads are full of cotton, hay, and rags.” – Professor Henry Higgins, My Fair Lady

But then again . . .

Rather Be Blogging

leave a comment »

Do you think this week’s questions have been interesting (1) or boring (2) ?

strawpoll

Response: 1 …Until today’s, which is more boring than all the week’s intersting ones combined.

Better yet, I could be off doing something worth blogging about.
