April 25, 2017 – Tell about a cartoon you loved as a kid.

Day 114

April 24, 2017 – What is your zodiac sign? Does it fit your personality?

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac, and those born under this sign will be quick to tell you all about it. That’s because they love to talk! The great strength of the Gemini-born is in their ability to communicate effectively and to think clearly. Adventures of the mind are what the Twins are all about. They also love to share themselves with their friends, and they make for charming companions.

That’s a really flattering description, and truth be told, modesty thrown to the wind, I’d like to think it fits me. I do like to talk, but I don’t monopolize a conversation. I know how to listen without interrupting, I do pay attention, and ask for clarification, or more information if something strikes my fancy.

Those of you here who have met me in the real world, does this description fit me at all?

Day 113

April 23, 2017 – What Was The Last Dream You Remember

This is a bizarre one. I was with a group of my coworkers at one of those Escape Room arcades / centers, whatever they’re called. We had to find clues and unlock the door before sun down and the resident vampires set upon us.

The room looked like an office / library combo, with shelves and shelves of books, paintings on the wall, three or four library card filing cabinets, a roll top desk with at least a dozen tiny drawers, well, you get the picture. We had to solve riddles to find the next clue, time was running out, and I woke up before we could escape. I was actually sweaty and panting.
