Firday 5 + 1 for August 23 - You Too?

U2 spy plane

1. Is it getting better, or do you feel the same? (from “One”)

Actually everything is slowly going to hell in a handbasket.

2. Do you shiver when you dream? Is there a pounding in your heart? (from “You’re the Only One that’s Real”)

There better not be pounding in my heart. That could be a sign of a possible cardiac arrest. Death perhaps! See #1.

3. Is the sweetest melody the one we haven’t heard? Is it true that perfect love drives out all fear? (from “I’ll Go Crazy if I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight”)

A tree falls in a forest but do you hear it if you are not there?

4. Do you feel anything at all? (from “Miracle Drug”)

Certainly and it depends on the circumstances.

5. It’s gonna itch and burn and sting; do you want to see what the scratching brings? (from “Staring at the Sun”)

Scratching usually brings on irritation, medication, a band aid and a scar. Burning can bring on severe disfigurement or death.

6. Do you feel loved? (from “Do You Feel Loved?”)

Huh? What's that? See #1.

Friday 5 for August 9: What's It Like (Part 2)

I probably did not answer part 1, but here is part 2. From Scrivener's Friday 5 blog.

1. What’s the outgoing message on your voicemail like?

I don't have an answering machine, nor do I have a cell phone. That means I don't have a voicemail message. Why? Cause I don't like telemarketers and robo calls leaving messages on my voicemail. Junk phone calls, junk faxes and junk emails are the scum of our digital existence. Want to get a hold of me? Send me an email: Otherwise bug off!

2. What’s the wallpaper on your computer like?

Today's wallpaper looks like this. Standard Mac issue. Tomorrow who knows? I have my Mac's preference panel on a rotating wallpaper mode. It changes every day. And this is just for my main MacBook Pro, a 15 inch model. I have a different wallpaper for my 13 inch MacBook Pro, my G4 Power Mac Quicksilver 700 Tower, my G3 Mac iBook and my Samsung Chromebook. Need I mention my iPod Touch? All of these computers that I mention work... I have a few broken Macs too. And a very old Mac Plus that I occasionally turn on. Here are more wallpaper pictures:

Mac OSX Snow Leopard

Here's the default wallpaper for my 2 MacBook Pros. Yes, I am still using OSX 10.6.8. Haven't bothered upgrading to 10.8... though I plan to upgrade to 10.9 when I buy still another Mac sometime next year.

Power Mac G4 Power Computing

From a few years ago, here is the wallpaper on my G4 Power Mac. In remembrance of my Power Computing clone from 1997. Running Mac OSX 10.4.11.

3. What’s stuck to your fridge door?

An assortment of magnets. Food stuff on the inside of the door.
Sorry no photos.

4. What’s your daily organizer like?

My iPod Touch Home Screen

I'm not showing you my reminders lists, notifications, notebook, calendars, etc... but this is my daily organizer... Apple iPod Touch (screen capture).

5. What’s signature on your personal emails like?

My gmail signature line:

• Mel's Internet Universe
• Mel's Internet Universe | The Hawaii Files
• Hawaii Radio & Television Guide

The electronic word gets out faster and cheaper than paper.
