I found another question prompt! And I get to drink coffee while I answer them! I think I’m in love…

You have a dinner party and may invite four guests from the following categories one fictional, one dead, and one alive, and a naked chef [wearing an apron only but no clothes underneath – or if you wish, for whatever reason, your chef can be wearing underclothes – pants/top]. Who will you invite to eat, and who will you ask to cook for your dinner party?

Holy schlamoly! That’s a whole lotta thinkin’ I gotta do. And why does the chef need to be almost completely nakie? I hope whoever that is doesn’t have to cook any bacon. Let me passionately pontificate on this ponderous problem.

Fictional – HK-47, because he’s not human, he ain’t got time for anyone’s bullshit, and he’s ready to blast all nonsensical meatbags.

Dead – Mommy, because…mommy. Duh.
Alive – Errmmmmmmm…I have no clue. Maybe Bill Gates so I can nag him to give me millions of dollars?
Chef – Welp, after Googling famous chefs, I didn’t find any I really care to have a dinner party with – especially one I want to see in only an apron. So, I’ll just go with a (clothed) Swedish Chef because, hey, at least we’ll have something to laugh at.

Have you ever slept on/in a hammock?

Sure. We had a hammock in our backyard when I was a kid. No doubt I fell asleep in it at least once when drying off after a swim.

Do you find it easy to maintain friendships with other people?

Nope. I find doing damn near anything with most other people difficult.

Are you a person of ethics? If so, how does that impact your daily life?

Well, yeah. I like to think so. It affects my daily life by always choosing to do the right thing, even though, most times, that is the harder and more difficult choice.

Are you decisive or indecisive as a person?

I used to be indecisive, but now I’m not so sure.

Why do people hold double standards?

Because most humans suck. That’s why my fictional character is a droid from Star Wars. Seriously, people are selfish and typically apply whatever standards work best for them in any given situation.

What is your unhealthiest but guiltiest pleasure, and why?

I wouldn’t call it a pleasure, but alcohol. It’s an escape from reality, and reality is a cruel, heartless bastard.

What is your process for writing a new post for your blog?

Well, I log in to WordPress, click on the “new post” button, and then start typing…

How important is it for you to know a person’s real name? [Be this online, offline, social media, or blogging]

I guess it’s sort of important. I have to call them something. I can’t just be like, “Yo,” or, “Hey, you!” The connection is more important than anything, but whatever that person is comfortable being called is fine with me.

When at school, what were your top five subjects that you were passionate about? Why was this – what did you love about them?

Uh, were there more than five subjects? Frankly, I wasn’t much of a fan of school. There were only a handful of teachers I even liked, and most of the things I learned in school have been useless in my adult life. Surprisingly, the one class I took in high school that actually helped me get my first IT job was typing. The fact that I could type over 50 words a minute got me on at a call center where the quicker we could roll through calls and tickets, the better.

Are those five subjects still present in your life today in any form?

Uh, I’m typing right now, oddly enough. How did you know??? Are you clairvoyant?

Are you a photogenic person?

Funny, but no.

Are you eager to appear in family or friend snaps?

Uhhhh…by snaps, do you mean Snapchat? If so, then no. I think that app is shady and needs to die a slow, horrible death in cyberhell. If you don’t mean Snapchat, then the answer is still no, because, at this point, I have no clue what you’re referring to.

Are there many photographs of you from and over the various stages and ages of your life?

Well, yeah. There aren’t many of me from my high school years (at least, none that I have) because of how life was at the time and things that happened.

With regard to the paranormal, do you choose to not believe because there is nothing to believe or because you feel it is safer to not believe?

I’m kind of a “seeing is believing” person. I’m on the fence about paranormal beings. I’ve heard some convincing stories from others, but I’ve never seen anything to convince me they exist, either.

Are you a non-believer or a believer?

Uh, didn’t I just answer this? You, sir or madam, are no Anderson Cooper.

How are you with meeting strangers/new people who might or could become new friends?

Well, I don’t consider people I’ve just met as potential friends, so I’m guessing I pretty much suck at it.

Is there a process you adopt to identify if they are the right fit for you?

If we can converse, laugh together, and they don’t annoy me, then that person is a good fit for me.
