this one feast, at band camp….

July 13, 2007

What is your favorite fruit?

Gonna have to say blueberries. I love them like I love my own mother, but only if in some sort of sweet. I can’t eat them raw: too sour. Perhaps I’ve been eating the wrong kind of blueberries, or something, but in a smoothie, they are divine and I would marry them.

Who is someone you consider as a great role model?

I think the definition of “role model” has become skewed by the endless train of motivational speakers that have invaded the minds of children through the 80s and 90s. A role model, by definition, would be someone who demonstrates a particular function at its acceptible zenith. I think even that definition has been skewed by culture to include that a role model must always be positive, when there are obviously bad roles that can be performed that might be just as necessary as the good ones (i.e., cat burglars, crooked politicians) in delineating what is right and just.

To say that one must act a certain way, as immulated by some other person, is biased and differs from culture to culture. It would be very difficult to decide what would be a good role model for all people, and I think it is important that note that “bad role models” are just as important to the way things work as the good ones.

But to answer the question, I’d say Ghandi.

If you were to spend one night anywhere within an hour of your home, where would you choose?

Given that time and space are relative, though corralative, and that it is theoretically possible to travel the normal distance of one hour by increasing your speed, and that at some speeds, time simply stops, I would put myself in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and wait for the world to end.

Main Course
Name something you do too often.

I drink sodas far too often. Less often than people I know, but as we speak, I can feel my insides rotting out.

Fill in the blank: I really like
