Happy New Year, and TMI Tuesday #221

Happy 2010 all. As evidenced by my recent absence, it's apparent that commitment to blogging really isn't my thing. Honestly, commitment of any kind is problematic. This topic could be a future blog post of its own, but in the meantime -

I'll hop back into the blogosphere by cheating. Not feeling like doing a topic of my own, I've realized that it's Tuesday, so I don't have to! As always, I lifted the questions from here: http://tmituesday.blogspot.com/

Would you rather.....

1. Have eyes that always smile or a voice that makes people calm? Most anyone can make their voice calming if they want to. Though except in crisis, I don't see the point of purposely making others calm; this seems boring. So, smiling eyes by default.

2. Have an affair and your partner catches you or your partner have an affair and you catch him/her? "Neither" is the obvious answer. Since that's a cop-out, I'll try to do better.

I suppose if I wasn't really into my partner anymore, it would be more advantageous to catch him having the affair, so I can cut him loose and be the justified one (instead of being the heartless biotch who dumped him).

3. Have better sex or more money? "Both" would be the obvious answer. But to choose one, more money. Because, since I'd have to work at getting either of these things, I'd rather already have the money, and spend my effort on the sex.

4. Be able to read everyone’s mind all the time or always know the future? I wouldn't want to know the future most of the time, let alone all of it. I know I'll have to die someday, but if I knew about it beforehand, I tend to think that would ruin all the time left!

So, by default, read everyone's mind. After all, I can ably tune out people who are talking out loud to me. I don't envision a problem ignoring voices in my head.

5. Your partner have sex with someone else or fall in love with someone else? Again, this sort of depends on if I still want the partner. I tend to lose interest, so, if he could time the falling in love with someone else to coincide with my loss of interest, that would be very obliging of him.

Bonus (as in optional): What one thing, big or small, would you change in your life if granted one wish by a lamp-bound genie? Why? The "what" is: I would very much like the genie to clean my house, preferably in a magical way that will cause the house to self-clean itself for the rest of my natural life.

The "why" is: to answer a question with a question -- is it normal for a girl to have a bachelor pad? In truth I can't even call it a bachelorette pad. That would imply a feminine and/or domestic touch that simply doesn't exist.

So, it would be nice if the house would take care of any mess by itself, particularly during football season. Since neither the nachos in the couch cushions nor the friends who dropped them there clean up after themselves.
