Writer's Block: No reservations required

If you could go out to dinner with a character from a current TV show, who would you choose, and why?

Dr. Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds. Supergenius, full of knowledge. Want to eat his brains and gain his power. Also, he's a sweet supergenius, and while occasionally baffled by human interaction or unaware of social norms, he's not malicious, just random in his blurting-out of facts.
Part of this is fictional-crush-motivated; I have a very real thing for brilliant people.
Also, Collapse )
Sure, he's of a body type to which I personally am not typically crazy-attracted (I am not a small person, and do not relish the thought of accidentally snapping skinnier folk like twigs), but seriously. SO ADORABLY NERDY.

Writer's Block: How old is too old?

Are you ever too old to go trick-or-treating? Is candy for everyone?

I think that trick-or-treating is mostly a kid thing. By the time you are a grown-up, you are old enough to buy your own damn candy, and old enough to find a party or a bar or a club or some sort of public event where you can show off your costume and hang out with people your own age instead of running around with children all night. However, if you are above the age of 14 or so and willing to brave the ridicule of your peers by donning a costume and going around begging for treats? I will give you candy. Just walking around, no costume, demanding candy? Not so much. The exceptions are the adults and older siblings walking little kids around. Costume or no, that is a job that deserves a treat.

Writer's Block: Rescue mission

If someone intentionally set fire to your home and you had ten minutes to get out, would you try to save the arsonist or your belongings?

... If someone is enough of a dickbasket to actually set fire to my home on purpose, putting myself and my family at risk, I will take the time to bash him or her unconscious with a baseball bat (conveniently located in my mother's study) before grabbing my shit (see previous "what do you take if you have to evacuate your home" post for the things I would grab) so the asshole can burn. Fuck them and everyone with their name, no, I won't save them.

Writer's Block: Countdown

If a catastrophe struck and you had to leave your home in a hurry (and never return), what items would you grab in your last ten minutes, and why?

Assuming my family and pets got out... I don't know. Probably my wallet, cell phone, and car keys. That'd be easy since they're almost always on my person or directly beside me. Probably my laptop.

Used to be I'd say my artwork, or maybe my art supplies. But I think I could leave those, now. I do have things of sentimental value that I can't seem to bring myself to throw out, but if circumstances led to them being destroyed, or disappearing... I think I'd be okay with it.

Edit Like most sane people living in a hurricane-prone area, I generally keep a bag containing several week's worth of medication and a change or two of clothes + some toiletries around. During hurricane season, it's in my room with me, the rest of the time it's generally in my car (which is where it lived when I was in San Antonio and driving around a lot). My key stretchy-bracelet-thing also has two flash drives on it, with all my important documents and school work backed up on them, so even if I didn't grab my laptop, I'd still have any files I'm likely to need.
My mother might have some important documents stashed away in the house somewhere; I'd have to ask her where so I could grab them (since she can't carry much).
