What I Do When I’m Upset

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Nov-27-2001

I avoid life. A computer is a grand escape hatch.

A ‘Four Things’ list ( lifted from The Umbrella Stand )seems to be an amiable way to fritter away some time, which I could be using to oh, prepare for class or to clean the sprouts up for dinner.

Four things you would eat on the last day of your life:

- Pizza from Luigi’s
- Lentil Soup
- Scampi’s in ‘lok’ sauce from that place in Reusel
- A slice of any kind of American cheesecake

Four CDs from your collection that you will never get tired of:

- Neil Young’s ‘Harvest’
- Marillion’s ‘ Childhood’s End’
- Pink Floyd’s ‘ A Momentary Lapse of Reason’
- The soundtrack to the movie ‘ Philadelphia’

Four movies that made you think:

- I can never remember the names of movies. But there was a John Travolta film which reversed the roles of the races which I still think about.
- Any movie about the D-Day landings .

Four celebrities you would have sex with:

- Mel Gibson, but only with his blue paint

Four songs you get stuck in your head frequently:

Hmmmm. I could waste even more time by trying to find links to some of these things.

It is a thought.
