It’s once again time to sit down with a delicious cup of coffee and endure a friendly interrogation from The Autistic Composter. Feel free to participate. The interrogation is worth the coffee!!
What actions do you take if you can’t sleep naturally?
Well, my doctor prescribed me Trazadone, so I just take one of those. Sleeping has ever eluded me, and the medicine definitely helps. Thanks, doc.
Can you easily recognise if you are suffering from stress, and if so, what do you do to reduce it? Are you able to see signs of stress in your friends or your family more than you?
I get stressed pretty much any time I spend a prolonged amount of time with C. For instance, we just went to the grocery store, and he spent the entire time asking for everything his precious little eyes saw. He also rammed the shopping cart into the back of my ankle. To reduce it I take some anti-anxiety meds because I can’t just get rid of him…
Yes, I can tell when others are stressed.
The West holds firm concerning the war in Ukraine. However, how do you feel about it all now? Do you believe we are providing too much or too little support?
Honestly, I don’t know enough about it to opine one way or another other than to say Russia needs to GTFO and stick to its own country. Putin is deranged and needs to be fitted for a straight jacket.
How much black-and-white honesty from your best friends do you believe your friendship with them warrants? Should friends be brutally honest with you or provide support without question?
I prefer honesty. It doesn’t need to be brutal, however. You can be honest without being brutal. Of course, I’d like people to be supportive, but if I’m doing something stupid, I’d rather someone say so.
Do you think you have an addictive personality?
I know I do. Not sure what, if anything, I should do about it, though.
Why are so many of today’s online/television advertisements so cringey? Are you ever influenced by the comedy or corniness of them?
I hate commercials. Like, with irrational passion. Seriously, the “humor” in commercials these days is so completely unfunny it makes me want to maim everyone associated with advertising. I’d rather a commercial just explain what their product does and why we should buy it rather than watch some insipid skit that couldn’t make a stoned hyena laugh. I’m looking at you, Jake from State Farm, and Flo from Progressive. And that AT&T chick.
Do you ever need help responding to some comments left by readers on your blog posts, as in not knowing how or what to respond with? Why is this, and what usually throws you off?
There are some times when I can’t think of a good response to a comment, so I just hit the Like button and go on with my life. I already have enough stress in my life. No sense in adding undue pressure over responding to a comment.
What five vegetables do you use the most each week or month?
Uh…I have no clue. I don’t keep track of everything I put in my mouth.
What is the most outrageous thing you have ever done?
Well, I got married. That was pretty outrageous. And stupid. Then I did it again and it was even more outrageous and stupid.
Have your blog reading habits changed since you first started to blog?
I’m sure they have, but I couldn’t tell you how. I’ve been blogging for 12 years, so I have no clue what my habits were back then. I mean, that’s a huge ask when half the time I can’t even remember why the hell I just entered a room.
Have you ever felt frustrated from reading blog posts because they are perhaps not piquing your interest?
Nope. If I’m not interested, I just move on to the next post in my reader. No sense in getting frustrated by it.
What have you done to prevent the boredom from biting deep if this is the case?
Do you find it easy to make difficult decisions, and do you have a process of elimination for making those tough decisions?
Well, they wouldn’t be difficult decisions if I found them easy to make. Anyhow, when making a decision, I weigh the pros and cons and ultimately go with what my gut tells me. So far, my decision-making record has been less than stellar, so I should probably find a new method.
What’s the longest you have gone without a shower?
From conception to birth.
Between the choice of a deep-fried insect sandwich or a raw earthworm hamburger with no option of declining either, which would you choose?
If I can’t decline either, then doesn’t that mean I have to choose both? But seriously, gross. I’ll just starve, thank you.
How would your family and friends react if you started to talk to another person one day that no one else could see but you?
Baby C would probably assault me with questions about why he couldn’t see this invisible person. Baby A would probably ask me if I’ve been drinking. Baby B would likely leave me be as long as I’m not hurting myself. Revis would probably comment that he’s surprised I made it into my mid-40s before having a mental breakdown. My dad would probably say my fake friend is fake news and somehow find a way to blame it on Biden…
Do you speak to yourself regularly?
Absolutely. Mainly, I’m asking myself, “What the hell did I come in here for???”
How far can you be pushed before annoyance becomes full-blown anger, and what is your anger style?
It takes quite a bit to get me enraged. I’m not sure I have an anger “style,” though. If possible, I’ll seclude myself until I can calm down so I don’t say anything I’ll regret later.
I love your take on commercials, and lord knows I agree. Who gives the ok on this crap? I laughed out loud at your response to the shower question!
Hahaha Shower Question tops the Top Ten answers with a golden star 🙂 Well done.
I agree, dang and l used to work in advertising, but l always say to Suze, who gave the thumbs up for that crud?? I know l am getting old, but when l see these adverts l begin to think l am getting dumber if there are people out there that find these things ‘interesting and fun’ … err, mm.
I agree, Putin needs to be zipped up and thrown away somewhere dark.
I enjoyed reading your answers – nicely done and always received with thanks 🙂

Your mind was gone long before you hit your mid 40s.
Shhhhhh…they don’t know that.
Anyone who has been reading your blogs for any length of time does.
Exactly! They don’t know that.
