I can't believe no one has professed Green Goddess yet.

----------------------------------Nouvelle question------------------------------------

Can you describe an unfulfilled wish or project that you have been meaning to get around to (or used to dream about) but have not yet found the time to do ?

brightpearl 10-07-2007 06:54 AM

I want to learn to play the cello. And to speak Icelandic.

I have a sculpture project (involving liquids) that I want to do one day.

^Intriguing. Care to describe it further? A kinetic fountain? Jars of curdled milk stacked into an artful commentary on early American politics?

I have 2 books for kiddos that I would like to try to publish, but I'm all shy about them.

i would prefer to remain vague about it and let you imagine something wonderful

1. open a modest biscuit design studio
2. finish doing the index of my book "arses for dummies"
3. hold a weekend sale of peas in my garden
4. invent a safe process for the extrusion of strem
5. observe & film the greater mars-red pelican in its clifftop habitat
6. blah blah blah

Off the top of my head, I'd like to read the entire Penguin Collection (I'm around 20 in :cool: ) and form a band, no matter how crappy we sound.

I've always wanted to make a windchime. I've got some nice-sounding chimes somewhere, I just need something to hang them off - oh, and find where I put them. I guess this one goes back in the procrastination basket.

topcat 10-08-2007 02:51 AM

wind chimes are so that stupid people know there is a breeze

Jack Flanders 10-08-2007 02:56 AM

remember that your neighbors may not love 'em as much as you do. trust me. i was a chime stealin' neighbor at one time. ;)

new question:

why aren't you boycotting the beijing olympics?

Stephi_B 10-08-2007 06:20 AM

Mmh, well, for passive boycott (not watching the TV transmissions, not buying any merchandising products) it is too early. Only thing one can do in that direction now is not buying tickets to watch the games live (something I could not afford / would not do for Olympics in any other place abroad, so it didn't cross my thoughts anyways).
Do you mean active boycott like going to/organising demos, writing complaint letters to official places, the media etc.? Dunno, exactly. One part is a hybrid of laziness/lack of time, the other a kind of paralysation as there are a myriad of things that go totally wrong on the planet: For which to engage fully? Or engage for everything a bit?
:confused: :(
