Fifteen "questions" from Sunday Stealing
1. Five problems with social media
An extraordinary waste of valuable time
Gives cowardly bullies a chance to perpetuate their hate behind the safe guise of anonymity
fake news, lies, and erroneous information abounds
insignificant, unintelligent nobodies have a chance to become cyber stars
unreality usurps reality
2. A place you would like to live, but have never visited
There's no way I'd ever want to live in a place that I haven't visited, but I'll play along. How about somewhere in the Alps?
3. Someone who fascinates you and why
I tend to fascinate myself.
4. Do you have tattoos? What are they and why?
Yea, I have SEMPER FIDELIS tattooed on my ass. Hundreds have seen it.
But seriously, I almost considered getting a tattoo long ago. Then I decided that I didn't want a drug-induced ex-hippie drawing a picture on my flesh with an unsterilized needle in indelible ink.
5. A book you love, and one you didn’t.
I love too many books to mention.
I hated A Separate Peace by John Knowles, which is the most boring and pointless novel ever written.
6. A fruit you dislike, and why
I love almost all fruit - but I'd probably stay away from the rambutan, kumquat, and annona muricata.
7. Two words/phrases that make you laugh
8. A quote you try to live by
It would take a helluva lot more than a quote to sustain me.
9. Something you miss
My youth, my health,
Life as it was long ago when things seemed normal and rational,
All the people I loved who are now deceased.
10. Three weird traits you have
What - only three?
11. What you wore today
Sweat pants, a sweatshirt, and slippers.
12. Word/phrase you use constantly
"Unnerving" and "absolutely".
If you don't believe it - read some of my blog posts.
13. One thing you’re excited for
Lately I don't get excited very easily. What are we talking about? Sex? Ice Cream? Concertos by Rachmaninov?
14. Your feelings on ageism
Ageism is the biggest, most cruel joke that God bestowed upon us. Anyone who says life gets better with age is full of rat crap.
15. Three interesting facts about yourself
I'm absolutely full of.......interesting facts.
I earned three belts in Judo when I was thirteen years old (no, I am not kidding)
I performed a piano concerto with orchestra when I was twenty.
I (unknowingly) worked the midnight shift alone with a murderer (serial killer) when I was a security officer in Southern California.
