Hmmmm.
That's a good question.
I'd make myself a lot richer, I guess!  So tired of scrimping and saving and barely getting bills paid each month.

I think I'd like to have artistic talent. Or to be better at sleeping.

MONEY SEX, POWER....

In order of most important to you to least important to you, rank which you'd want to have: money, sex, power?

Me, I think that's the order I'd choose, money, sex, power, since money can get the other two, assuming I even wanted power, which I don't, but I can think of cases where an excess of the other two doesn't bring money. (Like a streetwalker who has sex for a living but has no money or power, or a religious or civil rights leader who might have power but isn't rich, and in the case of Gandhi or a Pope, supposedly celibate.)

So, yeah, money, sex, power, in that order.

Anyone?

Eh- I can't say. I've never had to choose because it was never a problem. I never had any of it. I didn't even care. I still don't care. Except money...I gotta pay the bills.

I do not ever wish for any of those.  My sister (whom I don't speak with) thinks I'm "rich", I could always get sex and was pursued but lived like a monk, and power I've had and was pressured or resented for it.

Is this some kind of trap joke I don't know about?  Does this have something to do with your winky nightmare?

I do let the water run, but I don't understand why this is controversial?  Does everyone else's tap water warm up instantly?  When I turn the hot water on, it's cold/coldish right away, I fill my rinse cup and rinse my toothbrush with it and leave the water running to warm up while I brush.  By the time I'm done brushing (which is like a minute, not 40 years - maybe I'm a bad brusher) the water is hot/warm enough to rinse the frothy toothbrush, then I wash my face and hands with the warm water.  Every where I've ever been to tend to personal toilet - home, hotels, etc. - the water more often than not takes about a minute or 2 to reach maximum warmness.  If I want warm water, I need to let it run so I think I'm being more efficient by using the cold water to fill my cup and rinse my brush and letting the water warm up while I brush then using the warm water to wash my face and hands. 

My daughter was just criticizing me for this too and I was like what the heck you don't know how to wash!  Am I a monster?

I leave the water running too. I don't think it's a big deal. Sometimes the hot water smells like rotton eggs.

Running water while you brush your teeth must make you some kind of eco-terrorist, because even Barney the Purple Dinosaur sings against it, and he's pretty darn accepting.

He'd just lose his purple mind if he knew my son runs the sink water when he pees.

In the morning, part of my routine when I wake up involves going into the toilet, turning on the tap, then going for a pee after which I will then brush my teeth and if I haven't done so the night before, then shaving.

I do that when I poop at other peoples houses sometimes.  For that I accept the title of eco-terrorist.

Now I think I've made this the TMI thread instead of Personal Questions.

Guilty.

When I think of purple I think of the color Prince used to wear. Barney isn't a purple dinosaur, he's more of a violet dinosaur.

If you asked your friends to guess how many people you've had sex with, do you think they'd get it right?

(I should try this. Now where can I make some friends?)
