Behka’s Enquiring Minds Recap: Week of January 26 [OPINION]
Every day I rack my brain to try to think of things for you and I to talk about. I see what I do on the air as a way of conversing with you - but most of the time it's just me talking. So with our surveys, I ask, and you answer. Here's a look back at some of your answers for our questions - I couldn't possibly go through them all, but here's some of the ones that stood out.
On Monday I asked about your Valentine's Gifts. Do you prefer an expensive present for Valentine's day? Or would you like something more personal that shows that they care?
Either one would be okay. Just getting something is good.
Sure, a little something is nice. I don't want Boyfriendo to go nuts and spend money we don't have. But a little something is nice.
I want both!! Like a piece of jewelry that he sweated over picking out!
Ha! You got a point, there. Gotta do a little work for Valentine's, right? That's why mine does a little special meal or something for our romanticals.
Valentine's Day is overrated
I was wondering where our resident cynic was! Really though, most of you said you'd prefer the more personal take on the holiday.
My honey and I usually go to the store and he picks out my card, I pick out his, we read them and put them back! Saves a lot of money!!!!
Now that's the best of both worlds!
Anyway, then on Tuesday, I asked about your caffeine intake. Does coffee help you get through your work day? How much coffee or caffeine do you need a day?
I work 12 hour night shifts. Not a coffee drinker though do drink Dr. Pepper. Usually 1-2 20oz bottle. Not for sure if enough caffeine it could be more of the sugar/fructose content.
Yeah, you're right - it could just as easily be the sugar as it is the caffeine.
Usually have three pots Starbucks.
Hey, somebody's got to keep them in business.
yes, one, maybe two cups
Most of you were in this range of consumption. The vast majority of you said you didn't have more than one cup a day.
On Wednesday, I asked about The Super Bowl. It's coming up this weekend, and so I wanted to know what your favorite part of the Super Bowl experience is? Do you have plans for that day?
The Best part of the Super Bowl is that spring training is just a few weeks away.
There's our cynic! Well, maybe it's not just cynicism. Maybe it's just that there's a lot of good baseball.
Watch it for the commercials and half time show if it doesn't have a team that I am particularly interested in.
I have paid attention to the halftime shows in the past. But I don't know if I'll be TOO interested this year.
Boyfriendo is pretty interested, though. Maybe it's the power of breasts. You'd have to ask a heterosexual man, I guess. I don't know if they even get it themselves.
Of course, it's the commercials, followed with a close second, the snacks I devour. The game is just background noise!
Although, to be honest, it's not like I need an excuse to eat chicken wings. I can do that any day of the week.
The Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet! Love seeing the dachshunds..aka weenie dogs take on the big dogs. No fear! :) And following Meep the cockatiel on Twitter. Our cockatiel, Charlie thinks he's pretty awesome.
The husband will also watch the Superbowl...on the small tv downstairs in the unheated portion of the house.
You know, I do love me some Puppy Bowl. I do feel a little bad for the guy in the basement, though. Does he at least get snacks?
Then, on Thursday, I asked you about your gaming habits. Do you play games on your phone/computer? What do you play? Do you do games on sites like Facebook? Why do you like that one in particular?
I play Zuma blitz on the computer. It's just a way to relax. I used to do the whole Farmville thing, but it got annoying to pester your "neighbors" for things to get ahead in the game. We recently got a Kindle Fire for our kids and I'm addicted to the Rise of Berk: How to Train your dragon game. That and there's one on there called Virtual Family 2. It's kind of like the Sims but much simpler. I tend to play the game more than my kids do.
I can't say I've ever played any kind of Facebook games. I think all the way back in the beginning of my tenure on the site I played a game similar to "Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego?".
I play on my tablet and sometimes my computer, everyday. I usually play match games I've loaded, like Jewel Quest. I justify it with statistics that show games like that keep your mind sharp in your "golden" years!!!
See, now that sounds like fun. I tend to think of games I can't win, though.
DANGIT, NICOLE, QUIT GETTING DYSENTERY!
ANYWAY, that'll do it for us this week. But, I'll have a bunch of brand new ones next week, so come back and take some more surveys. Make sure you go back and take any of the other surveys you may have missed and you'll get points to win prizes!
