Monday Questionnaire
All Work and No Play Edition

1. What is your ideal just-after-work's-over activity?

2. If you had tomorrow off, what would you do with your day? (Note: if you actually do have tomorrow off, kindly keep it to yourself.)

3. Name something that decorates your office or workspace, to make you feel more at home.

1. On certain days, going to the gym. On other days, going home and eating dinner.

2. I would sleep in, watch a movie, read a book, maybe go for a run. And maybe a walk to the library.

3. Postcard-photographs of Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo, and Hoagy Carmichael. Magazine photographs of Henry Fonda, Charlie Chaplin, and Joni Mitchell.

1. I like to get some exercise to burn off the day's stresses.

2. Sleep in, practice tai chi and capoeira, go for a walk, cook something nice.

3. a silly little wooden chicken given to me when I left Desert City. It's yellow with black dots, a red metal crown, and red metal angel wings

1. Going to the curling club is ideal. Hopefully by spring I'll find some other kind of activity instead.

2. Sleeping in is guaranteed. If this is meant to be specific to tomorrow, I would work on cleaning my basement after a sump-pump failure caused some flooding problems. If this is meant to be more general, I would like to go for a long walk or try to spend the day making music.

3. Oddly, I haven't added much in the way of decorations since moving office locations back in August. At the last place I had a framed painted glass sign from my grandfather on my dad's side that I never met - "H. LEVY, DENTIST" and a number of muppet action figures. At the new office I just have up a printed copy of 7 Habits of Highly Successful People.

1, Handball, yoga, beer, hanging out with friends, and/or sex. Not in any particular order, mind you.

2. I'd practice my proofreading, perhaps order the materials I need to start a new needlepoint, maybe go someplace and read. (I'm doing a ton of chores today, so tomorrow would be a bonus day off.)

3. Nothing. Working in the kind of space in which I now work, one doesn't have "a" space, and, therefore, there's no way to personalize what's there, at least not in the same way one personalizes a cube. That said, I've brought some ideas, and a couple of objects (a good pair of kitchen scissors) that everyone can use. Then again, Johnnie told me I could have the little square locker next to his (it's about a cubic foot in size), so I put my bakery stuff (notepad, pens, recipes) in there when I'm home and my wallet and iPod and phone in there when I'm there. Not quite a personalized space so much as a tiny bit of personal space, though.

1. Go home. I'm usually starving, and I usually need time to destress, and I usually want to see my significant other.

2. What I'd plan to do: Sleep late. Pack and ship a couple gifts. Visit the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Mall of America. Work on embroidery while listening to podcasts of "Science Friday" and/or "The Ricky Gervais Show." Finish designing a database on which I've been working.

What I'd probably do: Sleep really late. Putz around the apartment for eight hours.

3. I have lots of stuff pinned to my cube walls, most notably thirty pages from "New American Paintings" magazine; three pages from Eduardo Galeano's book "Upsidedown: A Primer for the Looking-Glass World" ("The Right to Rave" chapter); and Adbuster's corporate American flag.
