"I am playing with myself,
I am playing with the world's soul,
I am the dialogue between myself and el espiritu del mundo.
I change myself, I change the world."

Great meme, Professor J. We share many of the same opinions. No big surprise there. I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who wakes up and talks to their animals.

Family Adventure said...

This is a good meme! I agree with lots of your answers...

like laughter being the best sound in the world, love chocolate, too. Hate self-doubt...

But Mexican food over Chinese? Noooooo....Professor J, you must come to Toronto when I'm back and I'll try to change your mind :)

Heidi

Mary Alice said...

I kinda have a crush on Rachael Ray myself...she's so no nonsense and always seems happy.

thebluetwin said...

Great answers and nice to see how much we agree on! Thank you for the kind words.
I'm looking at your comments and Heidi in Toronto wrote about Chinese food in Toronto - there are some EXCELLENT places there. Toronto (or Terrano, as pronounced by Canadians) is not as cool as Montreal, but it's fabulous.

I talk to my dogs all the damn time and I wish, with what's been going on with my pair, that they could talk back; my male is getting uppity as my female approaches her second heat and he's making me nuts.

Eek: bone graft surgery? Why?

Finally, laughter IS the best sound in the world.

Mrs. T said...

Fun meme, Profesor J! Will have to steal- very high form of flattery in the blogosphere.

Julie Pippert said...

Oh my gosh I'm just so impressed you not only answered all of those (and succinctly!) but did so interestingly!

85 and 84...AMEN (pun intended).

You're lovely. And your answer to Luck just made my day, I'm not even sure why.

Christine said...

I talk to my animals when I wake up, and all day long. I LOVE hearing my kids do the same thing, echo my sentiments to the furry family members.

JCK said...

This was fun. It must have taken you at least a week to write it all. :)

I like to hear that your silly. And someday I hope you get your dream job. It sounds great!

I also love the sound of laughter and spend all too much time buying dog food (and other things!)at Costco.

Melanie said...

I find it very brave that you admitted to a Rachael Ray crush. Very brave.

In the spirit of embarrassing disclosure, I will tell you this: my first crush was on Captain Stubing from The Love Boat.

As you were.
