All of that means that my day was basically work, baking, then reading, and I'm about to head upstairs for a nice, hot bath.
Oh, and having a package arrive from Amazon that was supposed to be a Christmas gift but wasn't in a shipping box, just the box it came in, so Alex got it now instead of in two months. Oops.
Today's question: If, without being detected, you could spy electronically for the next month and watch anyone, anywhere, anytime like a fly on a wall, would you? If so, who would you watch and how closely? If not, why not?
I'm not sure I would, to be honest. The first people who spring to mind would just infuriate me and I don't need that right now. Creative people aren't really creating very much that I'm just dying to know about (or would be interesting to watch; I mean, come on, who wants to watch a writer sit at a laptop and stare off into space for long stretches of time before typing furiously for five minutes?). If Buffy was still on, I'd glue myself electronically to SMG so I could watch them all work, but it's not. So no, I guess I wouldn't.
16 If it were the only way you could remain with the love of your life, would you be willing for both of you to wake up tomorrow as native speakers of an unfamiliar language, knowing that within a week, you'd permanently forget the language(s) you now speak and largely be cut off from your friends and culture? If so, what new language would you want to speak and why?

21 Ignoring all financial considerations, would you rather spend the next 5 years confined to an urban mecca (e.g. New York City, London, etc) or a beautiful, isolated coastal town somewhere?
22 How would you react if you learned that a sad and beautiful poem that touched you deeply had been written by a computer?
23 What is a character trait you despise in others, but you know you also have that same trait?
24 What is the most serious law you've broken doing something you thought was morally right, wouldn't hurt anyone, or was no one's business but yours? How bad would the punishment have been if you'd been caught and given the maximum sentence?
25 If you were on a jury, would you be willing to convict a person for something you didn't think should be considered a crime?
26 If your heart were damaged beyond repair, but you could regain your health for a few more years by getting a heart transplant from a genetically engineered pig, would you?
27 What is your favorite question to ask people?
28 What stage play is your favorite?
29 For $100,000 (or equivalent in your currency) would you put on 40 pounds/18 kg and keep it on for 3 years? How much money, if any, would induce you to put on 100 pounds/45 kg for at least a year?
