Friday 5 - Topically Unrelated

Here are some fun, random questions dreamed up by scrivener at Friday 5 for this fun, random week!

1.What’s something you think you could have been good at, if you’d started at a young age? That is a tough one for me. I've never been particularly gifted at anything, so it would have to be something I started young and also worked hard at. I do wish that I had learned an instrument, so let's say that if I'd started young and worked hard I could have been a good musician of some sort. I have a fondness for the cello.
 2.What TV show’s theme song do you really like? There have been a lot of iconic theme songs over the years. Some of them I like, just because they bring back happy memories. Recently, I watched the full series Southland on DVD. The first two seasons had a really striking instrumental theme song called "Canção do Mar", a Portuguese song by Dulce Pontes. After those first two seasons, they changed to something that just sounded like "Generic Theme Song". I wonder why?

3.What’s the dumbest dare you ever took, or what’s the dumbest dare you witnessed someone taking? I have never been a very daring person, especially as an adult. I'm not trying to be discreet or coy when I say I can't think of any real dumb dare I've ever accepted. Just dumb, as in ding dong door ditch know? As for being a witness, it sort of carries over in that I tend not to be around people indulging in risky behaviors. I'm incredibly boring!

4.What’s the most exotic thing you’ve eaten? Please note, once again, that I am incredibly boring. This extends into the gastronomic world as well. I am a very non-adventureous, one might even say picky, eater. Sometimes I can't get past the way something looks or how I perceive it or the texture. For example, I don't like mushrooms because they remind me of ears. I know. *sigh*
5.What was the last thing you changed the batteries for? Um. Let's go with the tv remote. It's better for all of us that way.

Thanks for coming along with me on this journey to the renewed recognition of what a dull, dull person I really am. It isn't something you actually forget, but it never hurts to have it hit home every once in a while. Please feel free to post your more interesting answers in comments or on your blog! I would love to read them.
