Today’s Question: In conversations, do you tend to listen or talk more?
I tend to be somewhere in the middle.
I’m not long winded like Dr. Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory.
I’m not as quiet as Dr. Rajesh Koothrappali from The Big Bang Theory, who needs alcohol to talk to girls.

Today’s Question: Do you establish routines in your life? For example, do you usually sleep in the same place in your bed? eat meals at the same time? regularly return to the same vacation spot?
I do have some routines in my life. I sleep in the same place in my bed. I go to the gym around the same time. I have a television schedule that I stick too. I’m not excessive though.
You know who DOES have excessive routines…Dr. Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. I know I talk about him a lot. I can’t help it. I love this guy.
He can only eat certain things on certain days.
He develops a need to knock on the door three times.
Sheldon always has to sit in the same spot.
He has to make things more complicated than they need to be.
He created a crazy roommate agreement that outlines his routines.
He is consistently socially awkward.
Today’s Question: If you decided to do something and your friends strongly advised you not to, could you do it anyway?
I have done many things in my day that my friends have told me I shouldn’t do. Does that mean that I don’t regret doing those things? Of course not. However, I have a mind of my own and sometimes ignoring my friends’ warnings don’t always backfire on me.
The worst part about not listening to friends’ advice is the inevitable ‘I told you so’.
For example, here’s Elliot from Scrubs doing her ‘I told you so’ dance.

Today’s Question: Were you able to wake up tomorrow in the body of someone else, would you do so? Whom would you pick?
The only way I would agree to wake up tomorrow in the body of someone else, is if I knew for certain that the body swap would only be temporary. Assuming this is the case, there are a two people I would choose to swap bodies with.
1) Anne Hathaway
Anne is a triple threat: actress, singer, comedian. Don’t forget she’s also gorgeous. I would love to be Anne Hathaway for like a week or so.
2) Dr. Sheldon Cooper
I know that Sheldon is a fictional character on the hit TV show Big Bang Theory, but he is so smart and so funny, I would love to be him for a day or two.
Today’s Question: If you went to a movie with a friend and it was lousy, would you leave?
This is a tricky question. If I thought the movie was lousy and I knew that my friends thought the movie was lousy, I could be convinced to leave. In that case, we could probably convince the theater to refund our tickets or something. However, last time I went to a lousy movie, The Green Hornet, with my friends, I had no idea what they thought about the movie until the very end.
We were all hesitant to tell each other that the movie was terrible because we didn’t know if any of us enjoyed it. We all kind of pussyfooted around the subject for a minute before I came out and said I thought the movie was awful and my friends immediately agreed. It was the biggest waste of money ever. Plus, we went to see it in 3D, so we wasted way more money than we should have. To this day, we still talk about how bad the movie was. Wow.
Check out this link to Rotten Tomatoes…even they agree with us.
Today’s Question: In a nice restaurant, after getting the check for an excellent meal, you notice that you were not charged for one of the items you ate. Would you tell the waitress?
This has happened to me and my friends a number of times. We are honest people and we do tell our servers when they’ve made a mistake. I’m pretty sure, however, that my grandfather would’ve seen things differently in the same situation. He was the biggest cheapskate I’ve ever seen. He would’ve thought he lucked out and he would have left before anyone noticed a mistake was made.
I miss that old man. He took pinching pennies to a whole new level. He would get ketchup and syrup packets for free at McDonald’s. He would buy dented, discounted cans at the grocery store. He would rarely go out to eat and when he did he picked a place he had a coupon for. When he took his kids out to eat he would order a buffet meal and they would all share it. Any extra rolls we had at a restaurant would go in his pockets so he could save them for later. As our family got older and all went out to dinner, he would order a small soup to eat while everyone else got full meals. Then, he would proceed to eat everyone’s leftovers. I miss that man. He made being cheap an art form. What a guy!
Today’s Question: Do you frequently find yourself- just to be polite- saying things you don’t mean? For example, when you say goodbye to someone who does not interest you, do you act as though you enjoyed their company?
I was raised to be a polite person. I’m also a very empathetic person. When someone else feels bad, I feel bad for them. I do find myself saying things I don’t mean a lot for the sake of being polite or sparing someone’s feelings. I wish I was more like Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. He says what he thinks no matter what and doesn’t really know how to be polite. Check this out:
Today’s Question: If your friends and acquaintances were willing to bluntly and honestly tell you what they really thought of you, would you want them to?
I guess I would…to a certain extent. Radical honesty annoys me. I don’t need to know EVERYTHING my friends are thinking. I would like to know important truths. I do, however, think it’s funny when people can’t keep secrets at all. Take Sheldon Cooper, for instance.
Sheldon can NOT keep secrets! Oh, Big Bang Theory! I love that show so much!
Today’s Question: When you do something ridiculous, how much does it bother you to have other people notice it and laugh at you?
I do ridiculous things all the time. I am so used to embarrassing myself that it doesn’t really phase me anymore. Everyone does embarrassing things. How do you react when you embarrass yourself?
