Monday Crazy Questions: How's your love life?

Lani hosts Crazy Monday Questions 8. Head over to her site to join. Have fun!

1: You are driving down the street and you see the person you are dating/married to/living with walking down the street with a member of the opposite sex and it is someone you don't know...What do you think? What do you do?
~ I'm not a jealous type and never one to panic in situations like these. I'd observe them if time allows, and casually ask about it later.

2: The person you are dating/living with is spending a lot of time at the office these days after normal hours. Do you show up at work or call to see if he/she is there?
~ Lol...this reminds me of someone I know very well who used to show up at her husband's office only to be told by the officemates he's playing billiards next door. Although we are close, blood-related in fact, I do not operate like she did. I would verbalize my wondering when he gets home though.

3: How would you handle it if they are not at the office where they said they would be?
~ There might have been changes in their timetable. I'm always open to explanations, even a strong or valid alibi, but they better be good.

4: Someone keeps calling and hanging up when you answer the phone while you are at home with your mate or at a dates house. Do you get suspicious?
~ I might be. But as long as he's mine officially, socially, emotionally, physically, I wouldn't dwell too much on suspicions. Besides, he's with me right? So why subject myself to sleep-depriving worry?... :-) Or any more disturbance from the phone and I cut off the wires. There. Problem solved. Baboosh caller.


5: You have been hinting around for a little fun in the bedroom but the person you are dating or living with is obviously ignoring the hints. It's been a LONG time. How do you handle that?
~ Drag him to a shrink. Lol .... I will find out the source of the problem first.

6: Your having a relationship with someone who disappears for a few days and is just not around when you call them at times with no real explanation. You have agreed that you will not date others. What do you think is going on?
~ It's all the cue I need. I'm out.

7: You are at a party with a date/mate, and a member of the opposite sex is quite obviously interested in you and keeps giving you the "look". Do you look back? What do you do?
~ As long as the 'look' remains within the bounds of society's standard of looking decorum, then fine - look all you want. If the looker is a Josh Holloway or a Vin Diesel look-alike, then my date will have to forgive me for looking back. The point is enjoying the beauty of God's masterpieces. It's there and oh my Lord, they're giving you the look. React accordingly. But then that's all. I don't go around flirting even if you look like any of these hunks in my wildest dreams. I always accord respect to the man presently pulling up a chair or opening doors for me.

8: Describe you dream mate of the opposite sex. Use a photo if you wish.
~ Clean and sweet-smelling... :-) Seriously, I put the real weight on brains and attitude.

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
