1. You have to love the MLB schedule which builds up six weeks of meaningless games to this huge Opening Day event -- and then goes dark the next day, leaving an empty feeling. This is what CS Lewis (borrowing a great German word) would call Sehnsucht. What was something you looked forward to for a long time, but then when it happened, it left you feeling unfulfilled?
2. The TV season is finally picking up again with the return of Game of Thrones already here and the return of Mad Men imminent. Do you have any thoughts on the first episode of Game of Thrones? Where do you think Mad Men will pick up, what will be this season's theme, and what real life events will play out in the background? If you do not watch either show (well, first, you should fix that), tell us what you thought of the Walking Dead finale, or your favorite joke from Big Bang Theory or whatever you are watching when you are not watching Game of Thrones or Mad Men.
3. If you were required to play a sport that you have never played previously, which one would you choose? This would become the only sport that you could play for the next ten years, and you would have to play at least once a month, so choose wisely.
4. We are taking the kids to Disneyland later this month. What is your favorite Disneyland/Disney World ride?
Boner: You have to design a new Disney theme park ride. It has to be based -- at least loosely -- on a traditional Disney/Pixar character or film (no Star Wars). What do you do?
