Six Quickies

Rory, aka A Guy Called Bloke, is in the mood for quickies. Six of them actually.

1 – Are you ready? Interpretation completely down to you, but are you?

Absolutely I’m ready. Let’s get to it. Oh wait, that was the first question. Well, I’m ready anyway. Bring it on!

2 – If you were to star in a raunchy movie what ‘part’ would you be playing?

The raunchy part.

3 – In your eyes, what do you consider to be a deep thinking question?

Those questions that require me to think deeply.

4 – When was the last time you used a juicer?

The last time I got juiced.

5 – How lost would you be if suddenly all makes of intelligent mobile devices were banned and replaced with regular mobile phones?

It would be like going back to the Dark Ages.

6 – When was the last time that you were completely and utterly dehydrated and what caused it?

To the best of my knowledge I have never been completely and utterly dehydrated. Why? Because I know when and how to drink water. Duh!

Rory’s Four Aces

In his Friday Four series, Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, has once again posed four rather provocative questions for us to ponder.

Do you think society could survive without governmental authority or structure?

No, I think humans are generally selfish and self-serving, so I think some sort of governmental authority is necessary to ensure that critical services are made available and accessible to the members of society. And, the ideal governmental authority would be one that both protects and promotes the wellbeing of the citizens while encouraging individual achievement. Yeah, I know — Utopia.

Do we really need all the technology we have?

Do we need it? No. Humanity has managed to survive for centuries without all of the technology we have today. From my perspective, some technologies make our lives better and I can’t imagine life without them. Other technologies, however (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, hacking) have diminished our lives.

Everyone has a passion that can absorb them for hours and that includes talking about it with others for hours if left unchecked. Do you have such a passion and, if so, what is it?

I have a passion for blogging and yes, it absorbs me for hours.

What have you found yourself thinking a lot of late and that seemingly will not leave your brain alone?

Politics, Donald Trump, the presidential election, and all things related. I’m hoping that when Joe Biden is inaugurated in January, I will be able, albeit slowly, to wean myself away from such things.

12 Bloggersz November

The ever inquisitive Rory, aka a Guy Called Bloke, has a monthly thing he does where he poses 12 kinda quirky questions. It’s a nice diversion from focusing on the fluid American election results and the technical issues with WordPress that I was whining about all day yesterday.

What’s currently inside your bathroom cabinet or sits on a shelf in your bathroom?

I believe a picture is worth a thousand words, so…

If you awoke one morning and discovered that you had the complete control over global time, would you USE it well or ABUSE it badly and how?

If you’ve got the time, we’ve got the beer.

If you could start a new blog and no one was to EVER know who you were and you never let on either, what style or genre would you opt to use?

I already have a blog where no one knows who I am, so I’d do nothing different than what I do now.

If you found yourself to be a ghost for a day, who would you scare the heebie jeebies out of, and why?

I ain’t afraid of no ghost.

What, if anything, are you allergic to?


What makes for the best sandwich in your opinion and more importantly can you describe your perfect recipe to us?

Right now I’m craving a Philly cheesesteak sandwich. I prefer mine on a crusty Italian roll with thinly sliced sautéed steak, dripping with meat juices, melted cheese, sautéed onions, and slices of sautéed mushrooms. Yum!

How well and how long do you think you could honestly survive in a post-apocalyptic world brought on by a terrible life ending disaster?

Honestly, I don’t think I’d survive very well or very long in a terrible life-ending disaster. I mean, by definition, a life-ending disaster is, well, life-ending, isn’t it?

If online advertising doesn’t influence your buying decisions, what, if anything, does?

The experience of people I know who have the product or have used the service. And if I don’t know anyone who has that product or who has used that service, I’d look for legitimate online reviews.

Have any of your priorities with regards LIFE changing significantly during 2020 and if so, what and how?

This is kind of an awkwardly worded question and I’m really not sure what it’s getting at, so I’m just gonna say “no.”

Do you have any bizarre fetishes and if so – care to share?

You know what they say about bizarre fetishes, don’t you? One man’s meat is another man’s poison.

Rules are meant to be broken … yes or no and if yes why and which and if no, why not?

Depends upon who is setting the rules and who is breaking them. It also depends upon whether the rules in question are considered to be laws.

So!! Coffee upstairs or something stiffer ;), and if so, which, why, and what?

First of all, what’s upstairs? Second of all, I’m a teetotaler, so coffee upstairs, downstairs, or on this floor is fine by me.

Lovers and Other Stangers

Jenna, over at Raspberry Ripples, was tagged for The Sunshine Blogger Award by a friend of hers. I was among a whole host of other bloggers that Jenna tagged, and while my blog is an award-free blog, it’s definitely not a question free blog. So here are her, shall we say, adult-oriented questions, along with my answers (or, in some cases, non answers). Ready?

1. Do you keep in touch with any of your ex-lovers?

My wife reads my blog, so I’m pleading the fifth.

2. Do you remember losing your virginity with glee or with a cringe?

A little of both. Glee because I lost my virginity. A cringe because I had no clue what I was doing. I wrote a post about what led up to it here.

3. Do you think online dating or blind-dates arranged through friends works better?

Back in the day when I was dating, online dating sites — or online anything, for that matter — didn’t exist. And since I met the girl who eventually became my wife on a blind date fix-up, I’ll go with that one.

4. Is there “one that got away” in your life? Do you think about them?

There were several that got away, but I’m happy with the one that didn’t, so we’ll leave it at that.

5. Do you have an outfit that makes you feel super-sexy?

Yeah, right. At my age, a t-shirt and sweat pants is about the sexiest outfit I’ve got going.

6. Do you have a favorite erotica book or movie?

Actually, many years ago I tried my hand at writing my own erotic stories and, to this day, they are my favorite erotic tales.

7. What do you find romantic?

Sitting cuddled up with my wife in front of a blazing fire on a chilly winter night sipping wine.

8. What do you do when you are feeling sad, stressed, lonely, or anxious?

The good news is that I rarely feel sad, stressed, or lonely. I do feel quite anxious about Donald Trump and what will happen to my country after Tuesday’s presidential election. How do I cope with that anxiety? I consume a cannabis-infused marshmallow. Works every time.

9. What’s your happiest, favorite real life sex memory/experience?

When my wife and I were dating, we would occasionally take quaaludes before having sex. One night we each took three ludes and made love five times before dawn. We were both quite sated, albeit exhausted, the next day.

10. How easy do you find it to have open, honest conversations with your partner about sex, about your preferences, or your limits?

It’s easy. Once a king, always a king. Once a night is enough.

11. What would be your perfect fantasy date night?

See my answer to number 7.

Does anyone else want to have a go at answering Jenna’s questions? If so, consider yourself tagged.

Fibbing Friday — Frightening Fibs

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as host for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in your responses. Today is Frank’s turn to host and here are his questions.

1. What is a poltergeist?

It’s statue erected in honor of a poll taker by the name of Herman Geist, who, in a lifetime of taking political polls, never ever got one right.

2. What supposedly happens if you look in the mirror and say, “Bloody Mary” three times?

It triggers menstruation, but only if you are a woman and your name is Mary.

3. What’s so unlucky about the number 13?

It’s unlucky because it’s forever stuck being a young teenager.

4. Why do banshees scream?

Because otherwise, no one would hear them.

5. What happens to a vampire in daylight?

It goes batty.

6. A Nightmare on Elm Street wasn’t about a monster who could kill people in their dreams. What was it about?

It was about that day this summer when an out-of-control wildfire in Northern California destroyed all the homes on Elm Street in Napa.

7. Who did Norman Bates dress up as in the movie, Psycho?

Young Frankenstein.

8. The Amityville Horror wasn’t about a haunted house. What was it about?

It was about that day this summer when a whale washed up onto the beach.

9. What are the three witches doing at the beginning of MacBeth?

Pole dancing in front of Jeffery Geist, the hapless political poll taker.

10. What classic monster lives under the Paris Opera House?

Banshees, because that’s the only place they can be heard without screaming.
