Writer's Block: Smoke screen

What are your feelings towards smoking? What rights do you think smokers and non-smokers should have?

I honestly have no idea why people still smoke. Health reasons aside cigarettes are so expensive (over $10 a pack at least) and you always have to leave a building and be '18 ft from the entrance'. The first time I'd have to leave a warm pub to walk out in -50C weather for a smoke would be the last time. I don't see the point.

I think all their public 'rights' have been taken away at this point. I think there's talk about banning parents from smoking in their cars when they have kids in the back but I don't know how practical that is. Chances are if they're smoking in the car they're also smoking in their home and that's going to far. If they don't care enough about their kids to stop smoking altogether, I don't know what the car ban is going to do.

My mom thinks my standards are "too high" because I wouldn't date someone who smoked. She seems to have forgotten that I'm asthmatic. Trust me, no one is worth pumping myself full of whatever is in my inhaler just so that I can breathe around them.

Writer's Block: Green-eyed monster

If your romantic partner told you that, given the chance, he or she would sleep with a celebrity/public figure you disrespect, would you be amused, jealous, or bewildered? How would they react if the situation were reversed?

Well there's would and then there's could. Unless they were underaged I wouldn't be concerned. Speaking of celebrity affairs, last night I had a dream that I was having an affair with Ewan McGregor! Ace! Unfortunately, I had horrible guilt over the fact that he was married and had kids. Seriously? Even in my dreams I'm rattled with guilt.

Writer's Block: Here's looking at you

What is your all-time favorite, romantic movie scene? What about it speaks to you?

I'm a fan of romance that's a bit dark and doesn't necessarily work out. I prefer that over the happy ending type stuff. Here is the final scene of my favourite movie of all time (tied with Hedwig), Splendor in the Grass. Out of context it makes no sense really but she's just left the mental institution he basically put her in (through his actions). Even though he looks like dirt she was actually the 'poor' one in the relationship and his father was the one who wanted them to be apart. If they ever remake this movie, I'm not responsible for my actions.

For fun, here's a bonus video of the beginning of her breakdown. You see, Bud dumped her because he wanted to have sex. He couldn't have sex with her because he wanted to marry her. So his father convinced him to put her to the side until they had finished school. He took up with the town trollop and poor Deenie lost it.

I actually can't watch this movie very often. Maybe once every couple of years because it haunts me for days.

Writer's Block: Time traveler

If you could go back in time to another decade, which decade would you choose and why? Would you want to return or stay there? What if you could bring one other person with you?

That's a hard question actually. I'm obsessed with every historical era at one point or another. However, there's always something from that period that worse off than what we have now. I love the music and fashion of the 20s to early 60s but I don't know if I would actually want to live there. I think it'd be hard to come from woman living in 2009 to a woman living in 1939 where you have little to no say in your own life. I mean, I'd want the hairstyle and the makeup but beyond that who knows?

I'm currently obsessed with turn of the century France.  However, I'd only like to stay there if like Gigi I meet my own Gaston.

My obsession with this movie is becoming a concern. I actually want to make petit fours just so I can watch this movie and eat petit fours. That's not right. I also am liking the sound of a having a daughter named Gigi. That's just plan ridiculous (no offense to all the Gigis out there).

p.s. MJ's 'This is It' is amazing! I expected nothing less.

Writer's Block: Who will you be?

What are you going to be for Halloween this year? Are you going to wear coordinating costumes with a friend or partner? Did you buy something pre-fab or make it yourself?

It's pretty much an afterthought this year. My roommate has some wings so I'll be going as a fairy. Oh and when I say 'going' I mean, handing out candy. However, we're also planning to watch Ghostbusters and play board games so it'll be a fun night. I should probably stock up on some vodka though. :/

Writer's Block: Yes, offense taken

If a friend or relative makes a racist or homophobic remark, do you tend to confront them or let it slide? Are you more likely to confront them if it offends you directly or someone else who seems reluctant to speak up?

I always confront. I have caught on that some people say things just to get a rise out of me. I used to try to ignore it and not give them the attention they so desperately want but I have a hard time doing it. Now I just leave the table, room, etc. It's more effective.

Writer's Block: Concert mania

What band are you dying to see live in concert that you've never seen before? Would you travel to a different city or state just to see them?

Interesting timing. I'm flying to see Kylie on Friday. The only others I really want to see are Robbie Williams and Muse. There's not that many bands that really excite me anymore. There's a lot of new ones I like but I'm not ready to spend that kind of $$ on them just yet.

Writer's Block: Do you check your stars?

Do you believe in astrology? If so, how often do you check your horoscope and how does it impact your life? If not, do you get annoyed when people make assumptions about you based on your sign?
I think there's a big difference between astrology and horoscopes. I'm a Cancer to a tee. However, there are more things at play than just a star sign. If an astrologist spent a day creating my chart and then used that info to create a daily horoscope I might give it some credit. Other than that, it's like the comics to me. Something to read but nothing to really read into.
