Poll of Randomosity Seventeen

Hey! It's the Nexus feature everybody(or nobody) wanted to see one more time! Remember the old Poll of Randomosity? Here's my SEVENTEENTH set of TEN random questions for us to answer together:

1) Did you catch the final season premiere of Smallville, and if so, what did you think?

2) And if you caught the sixth season premiere of Supernatural, what did you think of that?

3) How do you feel about going to the dentist?

4) When do you stop working?

5) Do you ever get head rushes?

6) What will be the first new show of the Fall television season to be canceled?

7) Would you rather be invulnerable but blind, or be completely paralyzed with all your other senses intact?

8) Do you believe in randomosity?

9) Have you ever suffered from ”Senioritis”?

10) What's the deal with the numbers?


For me, the answers are:

1) I thought it was awesome, but the premieres and finales of this show have historically been great, even in the weaker seasons. I won't spoil anything, but it was great to see one original cast member make an appearance, and disappointing to see a sub-par stand-in for another original. I hope that particular actor makes a return in the finale. I do like how the gloves are completely off with referencing other characters from the comics, especially the little CGI tease of this season's true “big bad”. They managed in one episode to reference things all the way from the first season, while demonstrating how far they've come, and how far they potentially can go in the next 20 episodes or so. I just hope they don't mess it up.

2) I was worried about it, because it was planned to be a five season show and ended so perfectly last year. After battling the devil himself for two seasons, I wasn't sure how they could go back to a monster-of-the-week formula. The premiere was average, and was fine as a standalone episode. When compared to what they had been doing, it fell a little short, but it's not as bad as it could have been. This probably should be the last season though. It's important to end on a high note.

3) Normally, I look forward to the experience. I've only had four cavities, and that's four more than I would have liked, even though I made it well into my 20s before the first one. On my last visit I needed two fillings, and in the months since I've noticed what looks like a crack in one of my front teeth. I'm hoping that's just the seam of one of the fillings, since one side of the tooth looks whiter than the other. In any case, I have an appointment this weekend which had been delayed a few weeks, so while I'm nervous I'm also relieved that I'll finally find out what it is, and what needs to be done to correct it. I have a great dentist, so I'm sure he can help me.

4) Officially, I should be done by 5 PM. Most nights I leave the office around 6:30, although some of my time after work is spent gabbing with friends about movies or photography. Mentally, my brain never stops and sometimes a solution to a problem I had during the day will pop in to my brain at night. In the middle of writing this post I had to stop to e-mail myself at work, since I'll never remember by Monday morning the solution I'd thought up. I don't get paid to think when I'm not at the office, but my brain seems to do it anyway.

5) Once in a while when I stand up too quickly, the room may spin. It hasn't happened in a while, but I had a pretty bad one on Thursday. I got back to my desk after walking to the printer and felt very dizzy. My heart also raced as I considered the sensation that I might be passing out, but that was likely anxiety creeping in. The technical term for the experience is Orthostatic hypotension, and considering I'd had a LOT of sugar and caffeine that day and had been seated for a while before getting up, I don't think I should be too concerned.

6) From what I've seen so far, I'm going to guess Running Wilde. I like the actors but they've done better, and the network they're on has also canceled better shows. Of course, they've also kept worse ones, so we shall see.

7) That's a horrible choice, but as much of a visual person as I am, I wouldn't want to lose the freedom of motion, and not being able to be hurt would make the blindness easier to deal with.

8) I believe in the appearance of randomosity, but that there is always a pattern bigger than what we can see. That which appears random is always part of a larger tapestry.

9) I never did during my school years, no. When I was younger, I could keep the same level of quality work right until the end.

10) I think they had something to do with Jacob's list, although that still didn't make it clear why the same six were a serial number, or wreaked such havoc on luck when played in a lottery....I'm honestly fuzzy on the whole thing. Those numbers, right?


And you, my loyal readers? Where do you stand on these inquiries?

1. Stopped watching the show years ago.

2. I've never watched the show, tried; but I just didn't like it.

3. If I have a dental plan, I'll go. Otherwise I'm waiting until I'm in pain and have no other choice :)

4. It would first require me to have a job!! Hopefully soon :)

5. Maybe once or twice in my lifetime I've experienced it. Not something that's a regular occurrence for me.

6. I can't answer this question (You may want to brace yourself for the response)

I STOPPED WATCHING TELEVISION AFTER LOST!!!

I may catch the occasional show on DVD or Streaming. But I no longer have any desire to invest my time with network television.

I've found it to be quite freeing. Although people give you strange looks when you tell them that you've stopped watching tv. Most just can't seem to grasp it.

7. Choice a. Stuck to the same place and mainly dependent on other people doesn't sound very appealing. You might not be able to see with the first choice. But at least you can still do things for yourself with a bit of training.

8. I believe you may follow this random link and possible buy this tshirt if you don't already own it.
Buy Me

9. Strangely yes. I was just bored senseless towards the end of my high school life. Never knew they had a term for the problem.

10. It was sent to the producers of LOST by aliens to warn us about ............................................................................................................................................ Oh noooes, he's here I can't talk. "No Mr. Carrottop, I haven't told anyone about the fact that you'll be the next U.S. president. NO one would believe me anyway" :)

1) not yet, but I'll watch once I have some free time.

2) I've never watched Supernatural.

3) Don't like it. They charge too much.

4) When it's time to go home.

5) Yup.

6) ooh, too many new ones that I'm not remotely aware of that will probably get canceled. As for Genre shows? I've heard that The Event probably won't last, even though I enjoyed the premiere. Maybe that fantastic 4 ripoff (I enjoyed that pilot too).

7) probably the first.

8) yup!

9) Oh yes. Still am. ;-)

10) They're everywhere! They hold the answer to Life, the Universe, and everything! Just ask the freemason!

11) There is no 11.
