Saturday Six

Welcome to the Saturday Six.  In following with the alphabetical theme, he is up to letter E.  Followers are to answer his six questions with keywords utilizing the letter E. Here we go.

1) E is for ESP. Which mental superpower would you rather have: The ability to read minds, the ability to change matter or the ability to transport yourself from one place to another. This is SUCH a fun question to ponder.  First off, I'd say that I'd LOVE the ability to read minds.  I love knowing the hard fast truth.  Bullshit bothers me.  Sugar-coating annoys me.  Being able to read minds gets you immediately what you need to know without all the head games associated with people who are afraid of hurting someone's feelings.  However, that could potentially backfire if you start reading minds of those near and dear to you.... so you'd either need to be totally able to turn it off and on or learn to develop a very thick skin.

Along the same lines, the ability to change matter could prove to be quite useful but I could see someone getting very greedy with this.  There would have to be some sort of parameter as to what could or couldn't be changed.  This option is a little to ambiguous for me to adequately ascertain whether or not I'd accept such a power.

Lastly, being able to beam yourself up in a moment's notice -- VERY COOL.  However, that's a solo act.  If you've got more than one person to transport, the power really isn't beneficial.  Now if you could transfer that power by osmosis... I'm all for it and that would ABSOLUTELY be my power of choice.  Think of all the traffic, headaches and cluster _____s you'd miss!  What a dream!  Never late for another thing!  You wouldn't even need GPS now would you?  

However, in looking at all three, I'm still going to have to say number one.  I'm a people person.  I love digging in people's minds and finding out what makes them tick.  I could totally kick ass as the next Barbara Wawa with the ability to read minds, now couldn't I?  My kids... yeah, they'd never get away with diddly squat.  I already have a thick skin so I think that this superpower would be quite suitable for me.  

2) E is for Earth. How much do you recycle to save the planet in a typical week. I'm a tree hugger.  I use cloth grocery bags.  I will recycle all glass, metal, tin, plastic and paper that I can every single week.  It's not a matter of how much... it's a matter of "do we have enough space to fit everything into the recycle bins?"

3) E is for East. What's the furthest East you've traveled in the United States. Maine, which also happens to be the furthest Eastern state in the United States.  :)  I've also been to New York, New Jersey, North Carolina and Florida which are all eastern states as well.

4) E is for Ellipsis. What kind of punctuation, other than the period or comma do you use most often? I actually utilize the ellipsis frequently in written conversation because I write in a stream-of-consciousness and it literally indicates the pause or shift in my train of thought.

5) E is for Elliptical. What is your favorite exercise in a gym? I'm actually not a fan of the elliptical.  Staying in one spot while doing motions that should propel you really befuddles me.  If you're running, you should GO SOMEWHERE.  I can't stand hamster machines.  That being said... my favorite "exercise" in a gym would have to be weights.  Am I having to pick a specific exercise that I like to do?  That would be next to impossible.  I love straight-leg dead lifts because it BURNS my legs the next day.  I love doing bench press because my arms shake after the 3rd set.  I love doing lunges because it gets my heart rate up... Frankly, I love the gym... weights... running... this is a hard one for me.  

6) E is for Empty. Most often, do you consider the glass half-empty or half-full?  Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the glass is ALWAYS full.  Even if the water level is at 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/305... why?  There is still air occupying the voided space, is there not?  I would generally say that it depends on my mood.  That's the truth.
