This is the Monday Mission... something new to, but neat nonetheless... :)

1. Do you have a favorite piece of poetry or prose written by someone else? Care to share it? Although I like Edgar Allen Poe and Shakespeare, I don't really have anything that would qualify as a favorite piece of poetry or prose written by someone else. Though if we are considering music to also count as poetry, I would have to go with:
"Don't you mess with a little girl's dreams
cuz she's liable to grow up mean.
Surprised you to find that I'm laughing
you thought that you'd find me in tears.
You thought I'd be climbing the walls
like a tiny mosquito and trembling in fear.
Well you may be king for the moment,
but I am a queen understand.
And I've got your pawns and your bishops
and castles all inside the palm of my hand."
... which is the first verse of "Control," by Poe.

2. In High School, did you enjoy creative writing? Do you currently do any other writing in addition to your Blog? Yup, I loved it. And yup, I write quite a bit of game related fiction, though I haven't done much recently.

3. Have you ever noticed that the Blog entries you least expect to get the most comments do, and those you expect to generate a lot of feedback don't? Which Blog entry of yours surprised you by getting a lot of comments? Which one did you think would generate a lot but didn't? I went for almost a week without getting any comments, so that kinda surprised me. Lately, though, I get the predictable comments to my posts, and nothing of major surprise. Though I am occasionally surprised when someone at game mentions that they read my page, and they've never commented... (HINT HINT!)

4. Sometimes you get a chance to make a lifestyle change that has a huge impact on the course your life takes. That is, a moment where something became very clear to you, and that realization changed your life, such as: the need to leave a relationship, to stop an addiction, to bond with someone, to start a new career, and so on. Have you ever had an "awakening" moment in your life? Hmmm... well, yes. I'm not going to comment further than that, however.

5. Then there are other times where you can have a huge impact on someone else's life. You suggest they see a doctor, stop them from taking that last drink, or maybe just say some kind words at the moment. Have you made a lasting positive impact on the life of someone else? Not to my knowledge, though I'm fairly sure that I have.

6. Are there any charities or organizations which you support? How did you come to be involved with them? Ummm... I was a member of the Collinsville Jaycees, and I guess I still am, technically. But I joined so that I could LARP at the haunted house... not the most noble of reasons. I did help out with some of the Jaycees stuff when I was going to Collinsville every weekend, but I haven't been up there in a good long while now...

7. Care to collaborate with me? Help me out and write the rest of this poem:

I drifted though a dream last night,
visions full of colors bright.
My thoughts began to drift to you,
and in an instant we were two.

I touched your hand,
We began to blend,
Filled with a feeling
that should have no end.

.... Ugh, I'm not good at helping other people with poetry... I'll leave this one alone! :)

BONUS: Hey cutie, what's up with this attitude? What, you mean you don't like my attitude? Well, in the words of my little sister... YOUR MOM! :p
