Greetings, programs

I am really wondering whether anyone out there does NOT think Astrid Farnsworth is an outstanding character.

I Just Finally Finished Fringe

I have to say, I was less than pleased with the ending.  I thought the final episode itself was fantastic with all its references to Fringe cases all the way back to season 1.  My problem is just with the final scenes.

Spoilers below the fold…

1. Do you want a boyfriend or girlfriend?

If you are asking which, I really do not care.  One, the other, or neither.  As for whether I would want one at all, I am not sure.  I mean, there are certainly people I find attractive and people who find me attractive (for some reason), and I could certainly attempt a romantic relationship, but part of me feels it would be better to continue resisting those desires for a little while longer and sorting more things out in my mind.

5. Do you chew on your straws?

Sometimes, yes.

18. When was the last time you smiled?

A few minutes ago while chatting with snowbughymn.

24. What ARE you looking forward to?

Seeing shoveaspockinit this weekend!

29. How many TRUE friends do you have?

I cannot say for sure.  I suppose my answer depends on how paranoid I am feeling at the time :P

35. If you could move somewhere else, would you?

Well, I have spent time living in three places in the past year, so yes, I would probably be fine with that.

39. Three names you go by…

“Zachary”, “Gamer_Z.”, and “ZMYaro”.

43. What’s your current problem?

The main battle going on in my head at the moment kind of has to do with question #1.  Slightly more specifically, it is a debate over whether and to what extent I should allow myself to indulge in certain emotional impulses, the issue being doing so would be likely to interfere with my mental refactoring project.  It is entirely possible I would be fine, but part of me wants to spend more time to take additional precautions to ensure I do not end up reverting to the man I was in 2013.

My other problem right now is I am finally watching the series finale of Fringe, meaning after today there will be no new content for me to see featuring these characters.

46. How many kids do you want to have?

One at most, but right now zero.

Ask me things.

Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”

Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.

90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums

Are we not going to mention Jesus?

Nailed it.

*wheeze* 

Oh my god.

Nailed it.

I had a dream last night that I worked at McDonalds and I was behind the counter when this guy dressed in a tuxedo (with white dickie and tie) was snapping his fingers for a server. I went I over and he asked to see our “darkest red” and I knew he was talking about wine so I said “sir, this is McDonalds. The darkest red we have here is ketchup” and he had me pour him a glass of ketchup and he drank it while looking me directly in the eye.

Our Fancy Friday group should go to McDonald’s and do this!

You’re fucked up, Zach.

You apparently, for once, did not read my tags: “Maybe not actually drink the ketchup.”

ketchup is tomatoes

Then put the tomato products in your mouth instead of on your shirt.

Countless people have pulled off that feat eating pasta with tomato sauce at Fancy Friday.

I am still amused by how well Tumblr and the old Google Wave client conform to the Material Design guidelines with no modifications while we are still waiting on Google to redesign most of its apps.

hello its your annoying anon! i just wanted to say that i like all the points you made about the pills but i still think i would choose the yellow.

It would not quite be mind reading, but if my interpretation of the orange pill’s description is correct I could master the ability to read people in addition to other skills.

Also, it is good to hear from you again!

Still regret nothing.

renmilestone:

bip-bop-bam, zmyaro, heyitsmario, shoveaspockinitI think I would either go with Yellow or Orange (for Mastery of Language Learning).

I have some questions:
Regarding the yellow pill, I want to know if I will be able to turn that ability on and off as I please, or if I will have to constantly hear the thoughts of everyone I see whether I want to or not.
Regarding the green pill, can I shapeshift into any variant of any animal or always the same variant?  If the former, does that mean I can disguise myself as any human?
Does the blue pill just make me invincible to any physical dangers, or only for a limited time after teleportation/flight/contact with water?  If the latter, how long?
The orange pill’s description suggests it does not give me mastery of some activity, but the ability to instantly master anything, which suggests I could master any number of things.  Is that correct?
For the pink pill, while I do not have any interest in it regardless, does any touch trigger the falling-in-love effect, or just a touch intended to have that effect?  Does the touch have to be on skin, or does it work through clothes?  If the latter, how many layers?
Finally, in how many timelines would the black pill allow me to see into the future, or is this assuming there exists exactly one unalterable timeline?
If I am correct about how they would work, I would probably choose blue or orange.

19, 41, 105, 119, 120, 128, 149

19. Do you like bubble baths?

Yes.  I used to enjoy them when I was younger.  Now I just always take showers because they are faster, but I still like bubble baths.  Maybe someday I will have free time :P

41. Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?

Probably not everyone.  I obviously depends on context.  A rapist and murderer probably does not deserve a second chance, but someone who just screwed up something relatively minor probably does.

If you want to re-ask this question with a specific case in mind, I would be happy to elaborate.

105. Ever been to a bonfire party?

If you just mean a party that involves a bonfire, then yes.  I am a fire spinner; what did you expect?

119. Favourite book?

Man, I have no idea.  I have read a lot of good books.  The last book I read that I thought was really good was The Fault In Our Stars, but I am not sure it is necessarily my favorite.  Part of the difficulty picking a favorite is books like The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy and Brave New World are both very good, but very different.  Apologies for the non-answer, but I really do not know.

120. Are you afraid of the dark?

Nope.  I do sometimes get worried if I have a genuine reason to think there is something that could be a hazard to me and I cannot see it because it is dark, but I do not have an irrational fear of the dark.

128. Would you change your name?

To what?  Probably not.  I like being conveniently at the end of the alphabet.  If I had to change part of my name, I would probably take my mother’s family name so my initials could be ZZ instead of ZY, but I am really fine with my name as it is right now.

149. Do you believe in ghosts?

Do I go around assuming ghosts exist everywhere?  Generally no.  That said, the existence of ghosts would be pretty fantastic, so if I had sufficient evidence that they did exist, I would not oppose the idea on principle.

Make me regret putting this up by being curious and asking me questions.
