Saturday 9: Letting the Sparks Fly


Here's my answers to this week's questions from the Saturday 9 Meme:

1. Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?
Nowhere special. Just somewhere quiet, and that probably wouldn't work (my creativity tends to not spark on demand; it just creeps up on me when I'm least expecting it).

2. What would be one thing that would embarrass you a great deal?
Public speaking.

3. What values did your parents instill in you?
The good ones.

4. What’s a fad of your teen years that you remember well?
The Rubik's cube.

5. What is your favorite breakfast?
I don't eat breakfast, so I guess my favourite breakfast is none.

6. What is the best birthday gift that you have received?
Hard to say. I've liked most of them, but nothing leaps out as being the best. My favourite gifts this year were either some clay models of the Batman villain Clayface made by my nephew and niece (I wish I had a camera so I could post some pictures of them), or a story that a friend wrote for me to mark the occasion.

7. What gadget could you not live without?
My inhaler.

8. Do you collect anything?
Comic books, DVDs, dust.

9. What website (non-blog) do you regularly visit?
A DC comics fanfiction site, which I accidentally ended up running for the last few years.

I have never solved a Rubik's cube. I always meant to, but never did. That Clayface sounds fairly incredible, what a cool idea.

"Picking up the good ones" as dar as values obtained from your 'rents goes,is very cool.

wow, you've got asthma? I used to have it real bad when I was younger, now I get it occasionally.

Out of frustration I peeled the stickers off my cube and put them back on as if I solved it.

Oh, and one suggestion - buy a camera!!!

Thanks for the comments.

Tilli - I never solved the Rubik Cube either until someone gave me a solution to it (which kind of took the fun out of it).

MiLeT - He can solve it in seconds? That's impressive.

Bud - Thanks for commenting.

Blog - Wow, you too. I never had it when I was young and was only diagnosed with it fairly recently (in the last five years); until then I just assumed I got breathless easily because I was remarkably unfit (which might have indeed been the case).

The Bumbles - Great suggestion, and one I intend to follow up fairly soon.
