    Hmmm.....no, I guess not. I think I have a yearly checkup with my PCPhys sometime soon, but one of his staff will give me a ring to see what's a good time, I'm sure. Geez, six months is a long time ahead to plan for something. Shit, that reminds me, I'm getting to be about that age, maybe I should have old man Ha*** give me the rubber glove treatment.....Nah. I know my aerobic ability is shit, I know how much I weigh, my dental hygiene is superb, and I don't have any fungal growths.

    If TNP came into a few thousand free money, he or she would replace some tatty-but-respectable clothes in his or her regular wardrobe (blazers, pants, white shirts, leather shoes, and so forth) with some identical-but-new replacements.

    Yes, I guess I could do with some new dress shirts and shoes.

    TNP regularly bets on the lottery.

    I do tend to wear white shirts during the workweek, yes.

    TNP has seen The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara.

    Yes, a very good movie. Just saw it for the second time.

    Two reasons to not like Daniel Craig? Uh... no. I can't. A talented actor and a good guy, from what little I've heard.

    TNP knows off the top of his or her head who Daniel Craig's wife is, and will post a picture.

    I'm not ashamed, it just doesn't really fit me.

    Yes, Craig is married to actress Rachel Weisz (mrowrrrr). Here's a more contemporary picture: http://2xkcvt35vyxycuy7x23e0em1a5g.w...chel-weisz.jpg

    TNP knows someone who is TOO macho.

    No. 'spleen' makes me think of euthanizing enemies.

    TNP thinks Frankenheimer's Manchurian Candidate is incoherent drivel.

    Nah, it's OK. Never saw the Denzel Washington remake, though.

    TNP can name three movie remakes which are better than the originals.

    Wow. Tough. Since i've entered smartard phone crapville, I should answer. ............. The Man Who Knew Too Much - even w doris day and the brat. I mentioned elsewhere the remake Unfaithful. probably technically better than Chabrol's. And the Knihhtley P&Prej is better than other versions, as is Apocalypse Now, but unsure if they can be counted, so i give two.

    TNP has tried a new homemade food recently, like sugar water turned into 8% dry 'wine' in 48 hours. Gator mccluskey would like my milk gallon jug collection scattered around my space heater.

    No, but that sounds worth a try (and definitely agreed as to the Knightley Pride & Prejudice).

    TNP has read something about the Panama Canal in the past month.

    No. I read "the" book by DM about a year ago, and was enlightened.

    TNP knows quite a bit about France around the Franco-Prussian war period.

    Relatively little, but what little I know doesn't impress me much with Napoleon III. And I'm listening to McCullough's book now!

    TNP is a big fan of Napoleon III.

    Heh. I never even considered being a NapIII fan a thing. It was a dark time back then, although it cant be blamed to NapIII. So, no.

    TNP thinks the French people sort of earned their stereotype as belligerant peasants from their tumultuous nineteenth century

    Going with the more recent question: no, I guess some people think it's healthier than ice cream, and that's probably the main reason for its popularity.

    TNP likes frozen yogurt well enough but prefers ice cream.

    Sort of mildly curious about the new Wonder Woman, but also not, and also partly would be enraged at sitting through that.

    TNP has a problem reconciling the practices of selfishness and righteousness, as experiences.

    I guess so. Sometimes I'm too selfish, and I can certainly be self-righteous in a way that I know I shouldn't be.

    No, sounds messy and expensive. If I had to suicide, though, that's about the best, pulling a Bachman. Not to mention arson is a superior crime to many others.

    No. I prefer having the one -- easier to manipulate if I should have need to in the future.

    TNP has deliberately changed the way his or her brain treats reflex-like treatment of emotion.

    Usually multiple x daily, but for quite a few months my scale hasnt been working. I buy fresh cr2032 but no motivation to replace since i think the problem is mechanical, and i have two keyboards that need the same kind battery and its a hassle. Lots of things require effort.

    TNP enjoys the last movement of Beethoven's Op 27 no 1 more than that of the 'moonlight' op 27 no 2, OR doesnt know OR doesnt care about western art music

    I have no preference between the two, but I DO care about Western music (especially classical and Baroque).

    Hmmm. Yes, I guess I'm slightly interested, but to be honest, commercial passenger air travel kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth, what with all the mishegas about TSA and whatever. Very unpleasant business, and I'm trying to think positive a lot lately, that is, when I'm not relishing the unique savor of contempt and ruination.

    TNP vastly prefers wine fresh from the box to "wine" that has been moldering in empty milk jugs.

    Better: TNP will classify himself or herself (or itself? I don't follow all the new trends) as a (i) Spock (ii) Kirk (iii) Bones. Those are the only choices, so choose wisely.

    I'm probably closest to Spock in my calmness and intellect, but have always admired Kirk more for his leadership skills and daring. I'm not grumpy enough to be McCoy.

    TNP is most similar to Luke, Han or Leia?

    I'll take the outside view of not identifying w the femme or the fixer-upper girlfriend. I dont claim to be as competent as Han, but my ego and confidence is just as bigger. Probably not a thing to brag about when u dont have a grifted van by the river.

    No. I spend about zero time reading about movies these days. In fact, I have a hard time thinking of anyone I'd be interested in reading nowadays on the subject.

    TNP has received in the past an extremely incoherent, scrawled in apparently crayon, complaint pasted to one's front door. Apparently some special snowflakes don't like Jerry Lee Lewis being played at a very modest volume in the witching hours. Crybabies.

    Yes, there was somebody I wanted to smack after explaining the same thing to him a couple of different ways and he still didn't seem to get it.

    Don't see burnt ochre here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o..._crayon_colors

    TNP has another favorite Crayola crayon color.

    Uh, OK, flesh, I guess. At least I know ur not talking about me posting quotes in the regular languages, since that was only explained in one way -- or univocally, if you prefer the language of the 13th century.

    No, I did my "gardening" yesterday by removing a moldy cloth pot holder from my potted plant on the porch, where I tossed it after a small kitchen fire many months ago. It isn't so much a "plant" as it is a pot that has some unidentified weeds that are nonetheless somewhat green and attractive (to me).

    TNP has basically totally lost their shit recently IRL for a brief period.

    Nope. Independence Day can be a great day, and should be.

    TNP has seen the 1962 movie The Music Man in the past year.
