I saw these 20 “short” questions on a post on Melanie’s Sparks From a Combustible Mind blog yesterday. She got them from here. And now I have them and I’m going to answer them. I mean, why the hell not? You should feel free to do so as well.
What’s the most dangerous situation you have ever been in? When I was sucker-pinched by a guy while on a blind date with a girl. Turns out he was a boyfriend she never told me about.
What’s your favorite culture? My own?
What do you dislike about your own culture? Right now, the divisiveness and mean-spirited nature that seems to have permeated our society.
Your favorite type of travel? Time travel.
Do you feel understood? By whom? I don’t even understand myself, so I really don’t expect anyone else to understand me.
How do you feel about your body? With my hands and arms.
What is your favorite film? Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein.”
Are you adventurous with food? At home, no. When I eat out at a restaurant, yes.
Have you ever hated a place and wanted to come home? Yes, when I was in army basic training at Fort Polk, Louisiana.
Are you bothered about others seeing you naked? Nah. I’m a closet exhibitionist (i.e., I can often be found naked in my closet).
Are you a good loser? It is what it is.
What was the favorite time of your life? Probably my twenties and thirties. Oh, and now.
Do you have a close family connection? Yes, to my close family members. Not so much with my extended family.
Can you speak another language? High school-level French.
Will Trump be in for another term? Bite your tongue.
What are your thoughts on English people? They arbitrarily add the letter “u” to words like “favourite” and “honour.” WTF?
Was life better without mobile phones? No. I like not having to be tethered to landline to make a call, to find a pay phone while not home, and to be tied to a computer to access the internet.
What has been the biggest change in your life? The scourge of 24 hour cable news networks.
Is climate change real? You bet your sweaty ass it’s real.
Why do you like answering questions? It’s fun.
