Brain Storming... (lightning strikes!)

I'm brainstorming for my Human Factors paper... so I thought I'd tell everyone about my little game that I like to play. I affectionately call it the "opposite game", but it should really be called the "Is most not like" game. This is how you play:
First, you come up with a thing.
Then you think, "What is the most NOT like a [your thing here]?"
And then you think of something that is TOTALLY not like your thing.
Then you use your new thing and start the process all over again.

This game is great for coming up with ideas about things, or just being silly and starting inside jokes. :-P

So here's what I have from playing by myself for the last 10 minutes or so:

duct tape, poetry, King Kong, Ant, Burlap, SUV, Wok, Rap Music, Violin, spaceship, Chicken, airplane, bathrobe, Library, Tie-dye, Winnie the Pooh, RIT, Russia, Apple Pie, Construction Site,
Wig, Boulder, Lemonade

Now I'm thinking about "What is the coolest thing about a restaurant?"
And I've come up with:
Eating something you like
Eating something different than everyone else
Not eating at home
Having someone else pay for it

Maybe I can come up with something now.

I love that game!
:-) Your game rocks. I think it should be called word non-association.

One of my favorite things about a restaurant is the food. I like eating things that I don't have to make. When it's a really good restuarant, the atmosphere is usually pretty cool too. Like at Medieval Times they have the joust going on and it's a dinner show as well as a meal. They don't give you forks or spoons, just a knife and the plates and glasses are all medieval looking. It's themed. Themes are cool. Every restaurant has their own look. Think Macaroni Grill and Hard Rock Cafe. Very different styles.

So, aside from being with friends and family and not having to cook and all that, I really like to admire the scene the restaurant creates.

Oh yeah... and some restaurants cook for you at the table. That can be pretty neat, too....

Mmmm... Hibachi cooking. You can go to... ummm... Shanghai (i think) on W. Henrietta (next to Tokyo restauraunt). They do that there.
