Since no one else's done one - sourpus's EOTWQ
1) I like chocolate. So sue me. Always have. More or less any kind of chocolate - I like it. Once I open up a bar of anything, I eat the whole lot; I cant save it. I'm not that keen on white chocolate, although I wont say no. The only kind I never liked was Caramac, which I found sickly and downright distressing.
Q: What single foodstuff item (not brandname) can you eat til it pops out your luggoles and are there any exceptions (maybe a brand, or could just be a variety) within that category which you cant stand to even look at, if so which?
2) Relatively recently, I developed a strong interest in the idea that there is an as-yet-unacknowledged (by science) additional law of the universe known as 'the law of attraction'. It states that 'that which is like unto itself is drawn'. Within this law is the notion that a person's thoughts are central to the creation of their life and that 'you get what you think about, whether you want it or not' (in other words, that by giving your attention/thoughts to anything, you attract it into your experience and it has physical manifestation). Luckily, there is a lag of time - so you are not troubled by instant manifestation at every turn - but you do need to get that positive and deliberate focussing (even, where necessary, disregarding your material surroundings) is necessary at all times, in order not to manifest by default, as apparently most of us do.
Q: If you could found a new law for the universe, what would it be and how would it change the way we experience life?
3) When I was a kid, my granmother taught me how to knit. Not the most fashionable skill maybe, but, in retrospect, a very useful one. I was very young (just a nipper) and of course lost all interest when first football and then music began to loom incredibly large in my adolescence. I dont even need to tell you how uncool (not to mention dubious) it would have been to keep it up into my teens. As a result, I have forgotten every last thing she taught me and would be hard pressed nowadays even to sew on a button for myself without paying close attention to my actions.
Q: Have you ever acquired a life skill and then forgotten it all again and wish you hadnt?
4) Here in Hungary, people talk about having a 'seventh sense' about something - like when you call someone on the telephone, out of the blue and they just knew it would be you before they picked up the phone. In English, of course, we talk about five 'normal' senses, and it is our so-called sixth one which we use to determine such things. I've tried counting them for my Hungarian friends, but they still insist that there are seven senses.
Q: If you could add another sense to human perception, what would it be and why?
5) No preamble for this one.
Q: If you could come back as any animal, bird or insect, which one would it be and why? Mine would be a seabird - probably (with reflection concerning question one) a Gannet. Gliding over the waves, feeling the sea spray and riding those thermals must be a hell of a buzz!
