100 Random Questions (i)

So I’m getting desperate. Looking for blog ideas I typed ‘random questions’ into a Google search and the first hit was a page with 100 random questions. Aha. I now have a blog subject (although readers do have my sincere apologies for the lack of creativity in the resulting blogs – 7 months and counting, sometimes inspiration run dry...)

100 Random Questions
1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.

The book nearest me is ‘Connected Parenting: How to Raise a Great Kid’. It’s out on the coffee table because my nanny was interested in looking at it. The sentence starting on pg 18, line 4 reads: “So don’t get frustrated if you’re doing everything you can and your toddler just doesn’t get it.”

That’s actually a rather encouraging, through random, thing to read. As much fun as a two-year old can be, there have also been some struggles lately as she tests the limits and her independence. Rewarding, challenging, tiring... thus is parenting.

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What can you touch?

This question does not specify the direction in which I to reach my left arm... but reaching around I could touch the book I just set down, my bag of knitting (I’m finishing up a crazy striped sweater for M), the couch I’m sitting on, the curtain behind me, this computer (obviously)... this is boring.

3. Before you started this survey, what were you doing?

I was seeking inspiration on what to blog about.

4. What is the last thing you watched on TV?

Ah, this is too embarrassing to answer. I am ashamed of my tv watching habits and will disclose them only to a priest. And no, it’s not because I’m watching some sort of dirty porn channel, but rather that I watch insipid poppy reruns that are like comfort food to me but to which I would never want to admit to watching in public.

5. Without looking, guess what time it is

10:00. Geez these questions are dull.

6. Now look at the clock. What is the actual time?

10:26. Dammit, I should be in bed.
