Curious as a Cat – Week 6

1) What is the cause that you believe is the most worthy of all those available?

Helping the poor and defenseless. Some people that you might look at and think they can handle their own, they’re actually a lot worse off than you think. A personal pet peeve and a group I very much identify with and believe needs more help because no matter what political or social or economic theory you adhere to or a country uses or no matter what you think is right—-the working poor/the lower classes. Lower lower middle class. (Frankly, I see myself as being a part of this). The simple truth of it is that the trickle down theory is right—in that SOMETHING does trickle down. But it’s not prosperity. The people on the top take ALL the benefits of wealth and power, and many of them succumb to Greed. Gluttony is definitely the gateway sin, because once you start on that path, Greed, Anger, Murder, Sloth, they all follow quickly.

2) What problem is the most common among people your age?

Some might say apathy, but I don’t think that my age group (the lower part of Generation X) are apathetic—in fact, I think we are rather empathetic. I’m on that interesting cusp of Generation X and Generation Y…as in Y? What’s going on? Who am I? We grew up while the country was in transition, sorta like the 60’s but way scarier. I think we are very much a lost generation, and that means we end up with a lot of problems. Maybe even problems that aren’t really there and we just think we have problems, because we’ve been told we SHOULD have problems for so very long….I know in a lot of ways, even now, I feel lost. I often look at my life, how I’ve ended up so far, and wonder what is it that’s gone wrong, because I had a very good childhood.

3) Who do you feel is the most under-appreciated actor (male or female) in the history of Hollywood?

Vincent D’Onofrio (Det. Goren on Law and Order:Criminal Intent to name at least one of his roles) and Debra Messing. He’s so much more than any of the roles he’s played—I think the one that might in a way be most like him is his character in The Taking of Pelham One Two Three or Spanish Judges (though with out some of the neurotic stuff). He’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO smart, and I’d LOVE to meet him face to face just to talk to him. I’d probably end up being a babbling, giggling mess, but it’s a nice thought anyhow.

4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

dishes

My first thought is “what the heck???” It’s a small picture. The first thought upon reading the title of the picture (which is “dishes”) is that (a) I’ve got some left to do but (b), yay, there is not as many as I’ve had before. 🙂

Go and play yourself, if you find this interesting 😀 Go here.
