Rory’s Dawdler — 03/19/23

Rory, the king of questions, also known as the Autistic Composter, has come up with a new series of questions that he calls “The Dawdler.” He poses three questions twice a week, questions he says are “inspired by life, humor, conversations and observations, town life, blog posts, writers, gardening, news stories, television, entertainment, and human curiosity, and so on.”

Here are Rory’s three Dawdler questions today.

Are you a person who likes their life to be orderly with set routines and schedules or is that not an essential for you to worry about?

Is an orderly life with set routines and schedules essential for me? No. But is it preferable? Yes.

Are you a natural people watcher and if so what do you enjoy about the experience?

If I’m out and about and have some time to kill, I enjoy people watching. Seeing different people and how they interact and then filling in the blanks (or making them up in my mind) about the kind of person they are, what they do for a living, and what makes them tick can be entertaining — for maybe 30 minutes, at most.

Do you think your online persona is very different from the one at home or are you exactly the same as you display yourself to your readers?

I’m pretty much the same person here on WordPress (my only online “social media” presence) as I am in the real world. If anything, I may be a bit more forthcoming here. For example, I don’t go around announcing to total strangers ITRW that I’m an atheist, but most who know me through WordPress are aware of that. Yes, I blog anonymously, but that’s an attempt to hide my real identity to reduce the potential for identity theft more so than to present an entirely different persona online than at home.
