So, I'm an idiot. While our house is in the process of being sold, I still have to walk over there and pick up our post. Which I did this morning, walked all the way over there, picked up a few things, and came home. But just as I was walking back in did I realise, on my way out of my house, I left the post on the table. Perfect. But I did pick up my favouritest book ever. Well, in certain circumstances. The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock (He's got a series of Question books.. Kid's Questions, Sex, Business and Politics) I first heard of it when (again I know) I was at that boot camp place when I was 16. A councellor there had a copy, and we spent one of our free afternoons by a lake reading out questions to each other. It was fun, none of us really knew anything about each other and we got close pretty quickly after that. It's a nice icebreaker sometimes. And even though some of the questions are just plain silly, I find going back to it after awhile and find all of my answers changing. I recommend it to everyone. I leave you with a random selection of questions:

4) If you could spend one year in perfect happiness but afterward would remember nothing of the experience would you do so? If not, why not?

81) If you were to discover that your closest friend was a heroin dealer, what would you do?

190) Do you feel you have much impact on the lives of people you come in contact with? Can you think of someone who, over a short period of time, significantly influenced your life?


  1. Oh my God! I can't believe you've got that book! I used to have it (no idea what happened to it). I loved it!

    I tried some of them with my husband when we were first together and it always ended in a row. He'd say things like 'But it's never going to happen.' Me: I know, but what would you do if it did? Him: It doesn't matter cos it's not going to. Me: Well just imagine! Him: There's no point! Me: It's interesting! Him: It's stupid. Me: Argh!!

  2. I had a similar conversation with my husband! My copy of the book is so battered and dirty it's unbelievable, but I still adore it and give copies of it to all my friends as birthday presents :)

  3. I've finally added your link to my BlogRoll. :) If only they wouldn't ban blogspot at my workplace. :(


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
