Day 19/183: Unscientific Poll + 366 meme questions


Poll #2098984 Kitchen implement

What would you call the pictured kitchen implement?


It’s a jar-opener, and it is bloody brilliant. My grandmother gave it to me when I first moved out of my parents’ home. She said, “Nani, I’m giving you this because if you have one of these, you never need to have a man living in your house.” Thanks, Gram.

Jan 29: What is your skin care regimen?

You what now? “Wash face. Dry face. Apply moisturiser.”

Jan 30: What song are you listening to a lot right now? (Post a link?)

(Spotify link) Sebastian Plano - Purples

Jan 31: What superpower best suits your personality?

A list of "standard" superpowers would have helped here. In the absence of that, I will say sarcasm.

Feb 1: What is your birthstone and flower?

Sapphire and aster.

Feb 2: If you could redo today, what one thing would you do differently?

I'd get out of bed later because it's Saturday. However, I have two children under the age of eight, so no chance.

Feb 3: What’s your favorite salad dressing?

I find most of them too thick and cloying. Just a drizzle of toasted sesame oil or balsamic-and-oil will do for me.

Feb 4: Is your home tidy right this minute?

No. It is usually tidy upstairs, but upstairs is now full of stuff from downstairs due to the impending building work.

Feb 5: Would you rather go to an amusement park, a zoo, or a sporting event?

No contest there. Zoo.

Feb 6: If you were to win a “shopping” spree in a store, where you could grab anything you want in five minutes, what store would you choose?

Apologies for the boringly mercenary but honest answer: The Apple store. Not because I wanted much for myself, but because the resale value of a big pile of iPhones and Macbooks would probably net us a very nice three week summer holiday.

Feb 7: If you could step into the TV and be part of a TV show, which one would it be?

What We Do in the Shadows, duh. As a vampire. I would snaffle Nadja and go on adventures

Feb 8: What will you miss the most when the world finally runs out of petroleum?

Well, assuming we have managed to replace it with alternative energy sources, exactly nothing. I certainly won't miss global warming, climate change and air pollution.

Assuming we don’t manage that, I think commercial flights would probably come to an end unless there was a major and imminent shift in mass production and maintenance capabilities for non-jet-fueled aeroplanes. That would cause a rather big shift in lifestyle for quite a lot of people, including me, and I would miss being able to fly places for work and holidays.
