What's the question you wish people would ask you?

Postby Janus%TheDoorman » Thu Aug 12, 2010 1:32 am

Most of us, going out and about through the day constantly have a million and one thoughts bouncing around inside our head. Questions we thought we already knew the answer to, and answers to questions we have no idea why we asked. And sometimes we formulate long, involved answers to questions that no one ever asked, and no one is terribly likely to ask. What's the silent question you spend the most time working on?

Anything which would allow me to share my useless geeky knowledge. Whether it be, how can Batman win in a fight against Superman? What happens in the Star Wars novels set after Return of the Jedi? Who's better, Angel or Spike? Or, how does (insert movie) differ from the book it's based on?

I would love to be able to explain myself rather than listen to people go off on certain people I have liked/associated with.

How are you coming along on those reports?

So, are you analyzing me right now?

Could you tell me in great detail your thoughts on Bones, particularly the way it declined after the Season 3 finale? Also, what are your thoughts about the betrayal of the early-season characters -- particularly Dr. Brennan -- by turning them in to caricatures?

Kirsten, I'm watching Bones right now (due largely in part to you and Kimmie!) and am halfway through season two. When I'm finished, I will DEFINTIELY ask you that question! (Although I'm sorry to hear it declines. I'm enjoying it so much!)

"Would you tell me a story?"

I have so many plans for the stories I will tell my kids when they want one before bed. I'll have stories about princesses that require time travel to save, and what the sandman is REALLY like, and super secret spies with troubled pasts, and a brother and sister that totally almost get together before the brother kills his dad.

Then my children will grow old enough to experience these stories firsthand and totally think that they ripped me off.

Those stories sounded pretty awesome up until the incest.

I was going to say: "How are you?", but then I realized there is one person specifically that asks me this question every time she calls and I always reply "Fine".
