Meaningless Musings for March (aka monthly quiz for Newbies/anyone

1) You only have time for one: Museum of Art, or Natural History?

3) Brown or Grey/Gray?
4) Best Salad Dressing?
5) If you won enough money to be a space tourist with a private space exploration company (but no more than that) would you do it? Let's say the trip is one orbit of the earth in a shuttle-style thing so landing would be on solid ground
6) Your favorite secret ingredient in the kitchen?
7) Have you broken a bone as an adult? And if so, were you doing something stupid?
8) Do you have a grocery shopping list or just wing it?

1) You only have time for one: Museum of Art, or Natural History?
Natural History, but only because I've been to MOMA before.

2) Househunting: biggest turn off -bad kitchen or bad bathroom?
Bathroom would give me the more visceral reaction, but logic would make the kitchen a bigger deal-breaker.

3) Brown or Grey/Gray?
Gray.

4) Best Salad Dressing?
Balsamic vinaigrette

5) If you won enough money to be a space tourist with a private space exploration company (but no more than that) would you do it? Let's say the trip is one orbit of the earth in a shuttle-style thing so landing would be on solid ground
Would I go to space if given the opportunity? Yes. Would I spend my own money on it, if I were able to spend it on something else? No.


6) Your favorite secret ingredient in the kitchen?
Balsamic.

7) Have you broken a bone as an adult? And if so, were you doing something stupid?
Never broken any I'm aware of. Might have fractured a toe or two, though, and just never gotten it checked out.

8) Do you have a grocery shopping list or just wing it?
This question is insane. I often RE-WRITE my list on a new piece of paper before heading out, with the items arranged into the order they appear in the store.

9) Would you?
Always.

10) Jeans or Sweat Pants?
Yoga pants.

3) Brown or Grey/Gray? Gray
4) Best Salad Dressing? Balsamic
5) If you won enough money to be a space tourist with a private space exploration company (but no more than that) would you do it? Let's say the trip is one orbit of the earth in a shuttle-style thing so landing would be on solid ground. Yes. Absolutely, but only if they had a pretty good track record.
6) Your favorite secret ingredient in the kitchen? Cumin
7) Have you broken a bone as an adult? NO. And if so, were you doing something stupid? YES
8) Do you have a grocery shopping list or just wing it? List, if there are more than 3 items. But I do make impulse purchases if I have a reason.

1) You only have time for one: Museum of Art, or Natural History?

It would depend on my mood on the day - probably Natural History

2) Househunting: biggest turn off -bad kitchen or bad bathroom?

I agree with Clod - Bad Bathroom would provoke the most visceral reaction, but would be less difficult to deal with than a bad kitchen

3) Brown or Grey/Gray? Grey

4) Best Salad Dressing? It's a toss up between simple mayonnaise or a lighter vinaigrette

5) If you won enough money to be a space tourist with a private space exploration company (but no more than that) would you do it? Let's say the trip is one orbit of the earth in a shuttle-style thing so landing would be on solid ground

If the alternative is keeping the money to do something else with it then no - I can think of a lot of stuff I could buy right now :P

6) Your favorite secret ingredient in the kitchen? raspberry jam. Spoonful of that in any broth or gravy

7) Have you broken a bone as an adult? And if so, were you doing something stupid? Not as an adult - I don't think. Again, like Clod - I did think I might have broken a toe at one point but never did anything about it.

8) Do you have a grocery shopping list or just wing it? Generally I wing it. I carry a list in my head of stuff I need - and add to it as I go. The only time I use shopping lists is when shopping for other people or shopping for Christmas pressies

9) Would you? ...maybe

10) Jeans or Sweat Pants? Outdoors Jeans, indoors sweat pants.
