|Introduction||Maintaining views that manage to alienate a majority of potential constituencies, I continue to ponder global inconsistencies--aloud. Friends, insofar as I have any, having grown tired of my daily diatribes had lately begun suggesting that I start a blog, if only to relieve their suffering. Et voici, voilà.|
|Interests||Retirement planning for the masses -- got a question?, , , Also a proud, grateful, and contributing member of a successful family unit with a consciously applied but ultimately traditional division of labor enjoying all the current and (so far as one can project) long-term familial and financial satisfaction enabled by such a structure., , Seeking to live up to my stage-name: Nada Weiner., , Also support the ending of genital mutilation--especially of boys (you probably call it "circumcision")., , Currently researching raw milk (and fantasizing about starting a "hobby farm")., , Considering buying a small, self-contained RV., , Personality type: INTP|
|Favorite Movies||Groundhog Day;, , Groundhog Day;, , Joe Versus the Volcano;, , Castle in the Sky;, , My Neighbor Totoro;, , The Princess Bride;, , Stageplays that have knocked my socks off include "Artist Descending the Stairs" and Wedekind's "Spring Awakening"; also, I was once a groupie for an Oxford production of "As You Like It"|
|Favorite Music||I have grown rather fond of Sibelius' Finlandia--and Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man still manages to move me to anger and tears (Copland really succeeded, I think, in capturing the American spirit).|
|Favorite Books||Rand's We the Living;, , Zamayatin's We;, , Hemingway's Garden of Eden;, , Orwell's 1984;, , Free to Be, You and Me;, , Camus' L'Etranger (and many of his other works);, , Saint-Exuperay's The Little Prince might be another...;, , Just finished A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett--super!|
You get to ride the big roller coaster three times in a row. What will keep your dad from taking a bite out of your candy apple?
His having died, I suppose.
