Los Mutterings Del Zooom

I want to move. Will someone lend me a million dollars?
Perhaps a half million will do. I'll pay you back, I promise.

Unconscious Mutterings

a free association game -- I say ... and you think ... ?

1. Illicit :: Illegal

2. Go :: Movie... I haven't seen it but I think the brainwashed Katie Holmes a.k.a. Joey Potter is in it.

3. Jacket :: Life

4. Blow :: [pass]

5. Coach :: TV show with that dude, yeah him, he's the coach of a college football team in Minnesota, then he gets hired to coach an NFL team in Orlando and that's when the show started to bite... I actually just watched it this morning on TBS.

6. Effort :: Make some to help others, why don't you? Not many people do. We live in a very generous society when it comes to helping others. Sadly it's just not generous enough. I think that should be obvious but probably most people choose to live their lives blind to the suffering in the world. Afterall, when you can't see it, then there's nothing you need to help out with, right? If you can't see that others need help, then that leaves you free to spend all your time and money on yourself! Selfishness in this life, looking out for yourself while so many people suffer, that just isn't right. Whether it's an hour of your time or five bucks right now to your favorite charity or perhaps a new one you've never heard of -- help. Make some more effort in this horrible world, some effort to make this world better, to make someone's life better, maybe even to save a life.

7. Leadership :: Important to have strong leadership. Good leadership is efficient and wise... I guess governments are pretty weak then.

8. Snore :: Shore. My mind did another sound-alike. I miss the shore, the Jersey Shore. Probably not the most ideal place along America's East Coast, but I've had such great times there. It's been at least 6 weeks since I've had a thought of moving there... not that I could afford a half-million dollar home anyway... but sometimes when the weather's just right it brings on those thoughts. Right now with snow and temps around freezing, my mind's not on living on Long Beach Island. God, I love this place, Alaska, where each human has essentially their very own square mile, compared to where I grew up where people have to share their square mile with about 3,500 other people. Ridiculous. This is a wilderness paradise where suburban sprawl isn't wiping out acre after acre of woods and farmland during each and every hour of daylight... yet I long to be back in NJ. I'm wondering if that makes me a little insane.

9. Fearless :: That's the way I roll, yo. What's there to be afraid of? Okay, grizzly bears when you're not paying attention for their presence ... or satellites falling from the sky onto your house, but other than those two things, I seriously can't think of anything else.

10. Network :: For Good... please refer back to Answer Numero seis.

See now, I won't be able to write paragraphed long answers for Unconscious Mutterings even if I was not moving this weekend. :D Thanks for dropping by ChatnChill. So guys wear suits or smart casuals for dinners these days? :P I think those branded shirts and branded jeans are called smart casual right?

It was great that you included Network for Good. (And that Coach is Craig T. Nelson.) Thanks for stopping by my mutterings.

Have a great week, Zoomer ;)

Hey, I love snorers--I think they're very entertaining.

I just forget sometimes to kick off my "how many characters can I kill off in this story" mode. ;)

Leadership and effort -- so true.

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...

Calvin and Hobbes in the snow -- animated
