Saturday Six, Episode #83

Patrick's Saturday Six: Episode #83

1. You are invited to spend a night, alone, in a large house that is believed to be haunted. A close friend of yours whom you trust tells you of his or her own experience, and you have sufficient reason to believe that there may be a genuine haunting going on there. Without promise of any kind of reward for staying the night, would you agree to do so? Probably not. I don't believe in ghosts, but...having said that...I've been in places where I've gotten a "vibe", and if it's not a pleasant vibe, there's no way I'd hang around. I don't enjoy being scared.

2. What do you most enjoy about your job?
I'm currently unemployed and the thing I enjoy the most is not having a boss. When I was working in child psychiatry, the thing I liked best about my job was that I got to work with kids. I love kids, and I truly enjoyed working with them.

3. Who was the last person you had a conversation with? What was the main topic of the conversation?
I just had dinner (pizza and beer) with my daughter Katharine, and Xander was the main topic of our conversation.

4. Take this
quiz: What kind of "smart" are you? All-Around Smart: You are all-around smart. Essentially, that means that you are a good combination of your own knowledge and experience, along with having learned through instruction - and you are equally as good with theoretical things as you are with real-world, applied things. You have a well-rounded brain.

20% theoretical intelligence
20% natural intelligence

Ummm- OK, I said I wasn't good at math, but even I can see that 20% + 20% only adds up to 40%...meaning that maybe this quiz is sort of a DUD.

5. What was the last food that you totally ruined -- to the point that it was inedible -- when trying to cook?
I don't have a clue. Although I don't cook as much as I once did, I enjoy cooking, and I'd have to be pretty distracted to ruin something to the point it was inedible. I made black bean burritos for dinner last night, and topped them with a sprinkle of grated extra sharp cheddar, a dollop of sour cream, and some jalapeno jelly. They were great, and served with an ice cold Corona with lime...yum...that's a good dinner, and it takes about half an hour.

6. STRANGELY-OBSCURE QUESTION #1: If you had to do over again, would you change anything?
The only thing I'd do differently is I'd go to medical school. I would have been a terrific doctor, and I regret that I didn't do that when I had the energy.

Cool answers ;o)

Well, I took the quiz and while I got all-around smart, too, I got 20% + 0% (or vice versa; I forget). So what does THAT mean?
