Interview with Myself

I came across a training exercise I did when I was a technical training supervisor (almost 8 years ago).  We had to interview ourselves, which admittedly was pretty awkward.  So, I went back and answered them again just to see if any of my answers had changed. Some did and some were more positive and some were more cynical while others were completely different.

The Great Toilet Paper Debate

Okay so, I was in the bathroom this morning and someone put the role of toilet paper on wrong. 😡  So, I got to thinking as I had to change the paper to hang the right way about the debate  that has housemates, roommates, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters at each others throat . . .

What is the right way for toilet paper to hang? Over or Under?

Quote of the Day — Television is educating

“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”
~~ Groucho Marx

I don’t know why, but when I saw this quote I immediately thought about the movie Mathilda based off the children’s book by Ronald Dahl, when Danny DeVitto’s character says to her after she asks for a book:

“What do you want a book for? Why would you want to read? When you have the television set right in front of you. There’s nothing you can get from a book that you can’t get from the TV faster.”

This a great movie!

Hmmm, I think I’m going to have to add Matilda to my rediscover list.
