Tonight, I found out about a very inspirational Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) series called Player’s Own Voice, where athletes, or those involved with athletics, talk in-depth about something grouped by these topics:
In each article of many, is a feature called 10 Quick Questions, where the interviewee is asked the 10 questions below for quick answers, rather than deep thought and recollection, with chance to revise before submitting. These are a pretty good collection of questions to give a fair representation of someone’s mind, unlike a lot of stupid quizzes you see these days!
- The best book you’ve ever read?
- Must-listen Podcast?
- Best advice you ever received?
- If your life was a movie, what would it be called?
- What word or phrase do you overuse?
- What is a skill you wish you had?
- What’s something no one would guess about you?
- If you could have the ultimate influential dinner party, who are the six people you’d invite?
- What makes you cry, every time?
- What’s the next goal you want to accomplish?
I LOVE this sort of stuff, much more for being able to get a strategically random glimpse into someone’s mind rather than to contemplate my answers. However, for the experience, I put myself through it. My answers are below but I’d LOVE to know yours if you were so kind as to share in the comments, or on your own blog with a link to this post for me to know.
If you answer those 10 questions in any way, publicly or not, please do it before you read my answers because no matter whose answers you read before doing something like this, they are bound to influence your answers in some way. The influence might be to steer you down a different thought path you might not have taken independently, rather than agreeing with some answers to incorporate into yours, but it’d still be influence. Thank you.
Where you see bird, I see thong.
From the one piece pattern at right that was fitted for my lingerie model, I was able to quickly make a thong in about 30 minutes. It’s shown below on a mannequin that is not as curvy as my lingerie model so it doesn’t fit as nicely, nor look as sexy covering more than on her, but you should be able to get a fair idea what it looks like.
I live in Canada, where the Cozmo robot from Anki is not sold so two weeks after it came out, I finally got it in the mail. The videos below illustrate a few of the fun times I had with Cozmo. This is not meant to be a review, or showcase and such. Just me having fun with my robot that I’ll eventually learn to program! But you’ve got to put in the playing time and unlock some skills and such with Cozmo first. 🙂
Happy Hallowe’en, by the way! It might be Hallowe’en, but I’m celebrating Christmas with this robot I’ve waited for a while to get being an early investor but getting it late being in Canada via family in the US! This will be the last robot I’ll be able to get this year from lack of robots I can get out there that I think is worth the value for my money. But here’s to 2017 and a year full of leaps in the advancement of AI robots, including consumer level ones! 🙂
I am in the middle of revolutionizing by adding quinoa (KIN-wa) as a major staple or base, in addition to rice, pasta and some bread. Knowing this, my friend Rami Bardeesy recently suggested a meal to me that exemplifies my life philosophy #3 – AND not or – to combine the best of both words, while being very healthy. It was pasta with tomato sauce, veggies and quinoa. That was the quick and easy to make meal, but I didn’t call it that in the post title because it’s the substitution of the meat I normally would have with this dish that is key.
