Question Time Over Coffee – 12/10-11/2022

Didn’t do this last week. I started to, and got hung up on one of the questions. Anyway…

What motivates you to get up every day? Needing to use the bathroom.

What words have always struck you as funny or odd when looked upon? All of them. It’s a me thing, you wouldn’t understand.

How often do you read the comments left by other bloggers on other bloggers’ published posts? Occasionally. Not too often.

How hard do you work to keep your long standing friendships alive year in and year out and do your friends work the same way to keep you? To be honest, not very hard at all, especially since the stroke.

How many emails do you delete every week? 300 or so. I get on mailing lists and forget to get off them.

Are you easily distracted, and what do you find distracts you the most? Yes, and it’s usually my hyperactive mind.

I should have that checked…

Have you ever had a strange unexplained encounter that left you shaken and baffled and if so, what do you think it was? Or what did your brain make you think it was? I don’t think I’ve had that happen. I’m sure, if I had, it would jump right to the front of my mind, and nothing is right now.

Are we more scared of things that go bump in the night when in the dark or equally as concerned if the same thing happens during daylight hours? If so, why do you think that is? Things that go bump in the night don’t scare me.

This isn’t me

What do you think are the magical ingredients for writing a bestseller and do you think you could write one? Clever plot and stellar characters. No, I don’t think I could. I used to think so…

When was the last time you stayed awake all night having fun with another person, and what were you doing? At least 35 years ago. There were six of us and we were playing poker.

Would the 18 year old you recognise the older you if you both collided on the street today? If not, why? No. I weigh much more and have a mustache and beard.

What are you most looking forward to in 2023? It not being 2022.

Are you more curious or are you more passionate, or are you both? Probably more curious. I’m kind of tapped out on the passionate front.

Can you easily recognise your flaws, and do you think it is important? Yes, I can. I think it’s important to the extent that it keeps me from making a fool of myself.

The musical album you loved the most in the last twenty years was… ? It’s a tie between Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet and Vince Guaraldi’s Greatest Hits. Yes, they’re both old.

    1. I was waking up to 50 or 60 emails a day during election season. I figure it was futile to unsubscribe then, so I just waited and started unsubscribing until this past Friday. Now I’m down to six.

    1. Not really a lot, because I tended to lose a lot. I had a bunch of friends where the rule was once you lost $10, you played for free until you got some money. Just about everyone broke even at the end of the night. That’s fun, because the object was to get together.

      My dad loved Dixieland, and I got into jazz as a result. I think I was nine, because he died when I was almost 11. After he died, I started listening to his records, and it went from there.

  1. Some good questions. Some hard.
    I am what goes bump in the night. 🤣
    I’m looking forward to April.
    Dewey Decimal System Day is December 10. 📚

    I most recently blogged about my upcoming book and launch party.
    I wish you a merry holiday ⛄ season, and a New Year full of peace, joy, and creativity.
