The Monday Mission

1. Do you have a favorite piece of poetry or prose written by someone else? Care to share it?
Since seeing (and researching before seeing) Pandaemonium, I've been obsessed with Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, when I ought to have been obsessed with Wordsworth's Daffodils instead. I blogged it last January.

2. In High School, did you enjoy creative writing? Do you currently do any other writing in addition to your Blog?
I loved creative writing from elementary school onwards. Unfortunately, I don't get as many chances to do it these days. I wrote some fold-over stories with Becky a couple of weeks ago (you write part, then fold it over so only the last line is showing... it creates a ridiculous mess).

3. Have you ever noticed that the Blog entries you least expect to get the most comments do, and those you expect to generate a lot of feedback don't? Which Blog entry of yours surprised you by getting a lot of comments? Which one did you think would generate a lot but didn't?
People were very fascinated by earwax. I like it when people carry on conversations or arguments in my blahblahs. I don't like it when I ask a question and no one answers it.

4. Sometimes you get a chance to make a lifestyle change that has a huge impact on the course your life takes. That is, a moment where something became very clear to you, and that realization changed your life, such as: the need to leave a relationship, to stop an addiction, to bond with someone, to start a new career, and so on. Have you ever had an "awakening" moment in your life?
Uh... I must still be asleep.

5. Then there are other times where you can have a huge impact on someone else's life. You suggest they see a doctor, stop them from taking that last drink, or maybe just say some kind words at the moment. Have you made a lasting positive impact on the life of someone else?
Not that I can think of...

6. Are there any charities or organizations which you support? How did you come to be involved with them?
No. I'm bad. When I'm a grown-up and have money, I would like to support My Local Public Television Station. Does that count?

7. Care to collaborate with me? Help me out and write the rest of this poem:
I drifted though a dream last night,
visions full of colors bright.
My thoughts began to drift to you,
and in an instant we were two.

I touched your hand,
We began to blend,
Filled with a feeling
that should have no end.

AABB, CDED. No thank you.

BONUS: Hey cutie, what's up with this attitude?
I am pleasant for no one but Alf.
