Patrick's Saturday Six - Episode 84

1. What was the last movie you watched at a theater completely alone? Would you have enjoyed it more or less if you had gone with someone to see it? Last weekend I saw Jarhead by myself. I'd read the book and wanted to see the film, so I went and saw it. I'm a movie buff, and it makes no difference to me whether I go to the movies alone or with someone, although I do enjoy discussing a film with someone after the fact. But that's a pleasure to be had whether you've seen the film together or separately.

2. What was the last non-sexual thing you did around the house completely naked? LOL! Good question...since I'm an empty nester, I feel quite free to walk through my house nude, and it's a pretty regular occurrence. The last time I did it was yesterday morning, going from my bedroom to the laundry room to start a load of wash. I have to run past my front door, though, as there's clear glass on that door from waist height up.

3. How well do you know your neighbors? Would you like to know them better or not know them? I've lived in my house since 1984, and I've known most of my neighbors since then. Two of the guys, Charles and Tom, have offered to check out anyone I'm thinking of dating, so I'd say I have a pretty good relationship with my neighbors.

4. Take this quiz: How much of a conspiracy nut are you?
You are 25% Conspiracy Nut

You are a little bit of a conspiracy nut. You know about the big conspiracies - but it doesn't take up too much of your time. You have accepted that people lie, and get away with everything - so you don't dwell on the loch ness monster too often.

5. Of the following "conspiracies" mentioned in that quiz, which single one would you most like the "truth" about and why? I don't believe that
governments around the world are developing deadly diseases like SARS, etc., to use in warfare, and testing them on their own people, but I'm fascinated by the origins of disease. I'm such a nerd, my dream job would have been to be an epidemiologist working for the CDC in Atlanta, and one of my favorite non-fiction books was Laurie Garrett's The Coming Plague, which was published a few years ago, but offered excellent explanations of how diseases flourish when the environment gets out of whack.

6. If you had to create a slogan that defined your life, what would it be? The harder I work, the luckier I get.

Judi, I don't know how get the Patrick quiz on my blog but I did see Jarhead. I was disappointed in the movie, it did not show us much of the Gulf War, it portrayed those Marines as nut jobs and slow in parts. Good acting by Jake and Jamie Fox. I had two girls in the house and we all ran around in the buff. Now it's just us old folks we don't feel the need for modesty, but keep the door locked because kids never knock or call when visiting.;)

I love your front door. It is welcoming. Like I could just walk up there and knock and be welcomed in for a cup of coffee.
