jurassic park, but fully animatronic and more realistic than what's at islands of adventure. i'd also want any park proceeds to fund archaeological research, since apparently that's grossly underfunded right now. there would be dinosaur-themed rides and food and probably something like the old body wars ride at epcot.
i have a harder time with spoken arabic but it's beautiful to listen to and even more so written.
...i'm most likely wearing scrubs, if that's the case. but i think it depends! my favorite jeans always help me feel great, but i also love how i feel in this dress which makes me look forward to warmer weather. i feel like i have twelve other answers to this on top of what i've already said.
i wouldn't, because then i'd just have another set of expectations that i'd be trying to live up to and even more anxiety.
pregnant you beating up my bullies stands out, but so does DELIVERING YOUR KID IN MY BACKSEAT.
i can't believe i'm owning up to this.
aside from recreational viagra gone wrong and the usual uhhh foreign object retrieval, one of the dumbest injuries i've seen also made me the angriest. it was the fourth of july, which is always a crapshoot in the ER anyway, and a kid's drunk dad lit up some sparklers, put them in a jar, and then handed them to the kid. the jar exploded, glass went everywhere, and then we spent seven hours in the OR pulling glass out of this little kid's flesh. still probably one of my worst holiday shifts ever.
mark jenkins has done a series of tape sculptures that usually get placed outdoors. the sculptures are of people, or parts of people, or are of animals. some are pretty goofy, others are scary, and most of them manage to elicit some kind of visceral reaction that i really can't put into words.
if i'm feeling especially bad, it's my mom's matzo ball soup or mission chinese's sichuan acrbonara. otherwise, a solid cheeseburger and fries will do.
good milk chocolate, but only if i also get to avoid the aftertaste.
a certain former president or any of his cronies. you'd be the best, for the company. would be great too for the ease of getting out.
i can make the best out of most situations i end up in!
oceans! give me the beach any day. mountains are great and i enjoy being near them for the views and the crisp air, but i unwind better on the beach.
chocolate magic shell! i don't really use toppings much but if i did, that would be it.
there need to be more cake and ice cream combinations in the world. or more specifically, in our freezer.
infinite ice cream! cake is great but i think i'd get tired of it sooner than i'd get sick of ice cream. does this mean i'd also get any flavors that i want, or is it just infinite ice cream but in just one flavor only?
i would be SO confused. there would probably a lot of frantic texting and email and phone calls to make sure that it wasn't just all in my head. eventually i'd have to take a stress nap and then stress eat a bunch of tacos or something. i'm getting itchy just thinking about this.
i...feel like i can't answer this without accidentally hurting someone. more overpowered supers who use their abilities for good, please. the rest of us are tired!
i want to cut down on takeout and cook more, buuuuut realistically i don't always have the time for that. i should also probably stop bringing rescue animals home, at least for now. i also want to be better at keeping in touch with people now that all of my work stuff has settled because i feel like i've really slacked on that over the past few months.
this was more of a weird kid thing than anything else, but i went through a phase in middle school where the only thing i wanted to eat were these chicken salad sandwiches that my mom made, except that we were living in london at the time so she had to use different brands of certain ingredients and kid me could always tell the difference. she said it lasted a few months but i barely remember it.
the dogs' room! they're so spoiled. still waiting for goldfish to show up in the ottoman.
THIS IS SO HARD. any meal i've ever enjoyed at foreign cinema has been great, but so was every meal i had in italy that had uni. same with denmark. and the good company helps, too! the best meal i've cooked for myself was a roast chicken that had seasoned bread and potatoes cooked in the schmaltz. i haven't been able to recreate it.
to laugh at this question because we're basically the same age, old man!
one day, a feline furkid will share your name.
happy endings...maybe. it's goofy and light and i'd never stop laughing. plus, who doesn't want a friend with a food truck?
high school: most likely to disappear into the ether. now: most likely to punch meteors.
coming home to barking dogs, coco's meows, kibbles' grunts, your smile, your laugh, hearing about your day, and opening up a new container of ice cream.
there was that time that she had to take me to the ER because of what we thought was my appendix. i was cranky and in pain, and she was downright scary with the way she talked to the hospital staff when she thought i was being ignored. there was also that thing at the bar a few weeks ago, but that turned out to be you and not her. does that still count?
elf is fun but i don't really get what the big deal was. as for underrated movies...i don't really know? i've basically spent the past twelve years living under the rocks known as med school, residency, and fellowship, so any movies i've seen probably don't fall into that category at all and i have tons of catching up to do.
that i have a nice smile! which is great to hear and all, just...you know, context matters and i don't need to hear it at work unless it's from a four year old.
i have immunity, so...the CDC says that an infected animal usually dies within seven days of becoming sick, but in that case it would just be one awful, messy domino effect since there's no cure. coming out of hiding would be horrific.
i...don't know, and i never want to find out, because that could very well end the world as we know it. or at least, the san francisco bay area.
