I have nothing better to do with myself in the middle of my week off from Mecca, so why not take some time to share my world with you? It is Tuesday after all….. wait, is it Tuesday? The days just run together when I don’t have to work. I’ll assume it is and get to work on the SYW questions Melanie provided us for this week, all courtesy of other bloggers. It’s like a secondhand interrogation. Let’s roll with the new and allegedly improved logo…
Are we losing the art of listening in comparison to simply hearing?
Yeah, yeah, you’re probably right. About whatever it was you just asked. Do you mind if I go back to my game I was playing now?
How often do you openly discuss with friends or here in WP with your readership topics that make you feel uncomfortable or may be taboo or stigma laden?
Yeah, no. I don’t engage in any kind of serious discussion of any such taboo topics because the majority of people of all kinds, creeds and beliefs are pretty closed-minded when it comes to the more sensitive subjects I often have differing view about. If you’ve read a few of my episodes of Shelf Critter Theatre, you’ll see that absolutely no subject is considered off limits when it comes to wielding my lighthearted, but disturbed sense of humor… because I absolutely do love to joke about the things that make others uncomfortable. Which just makes them even more uncomfortable, which always makes me wonder sometimes why I still have people following me since we’re collectively such a “panties in a wad” society…
Do you think that these discussions should be freely discussed and written about more?
Why? Nobody is swayed by discussions. There comes a certain point in our lives, almost certainly by our 30’s, where we pretty much are who we are and we’re not changing barring some seismic event in our lives. A lot of breath and bandwidth is wasted trying to change minds that are not going to be changed, and that goes for everyone, not just the people YOU think are ignorant and closed minded. Progress starts with the more impressionable younger generation…
Did you have a nickname as a child and if so, what was [or what is it now]?
That question was asked a few months ago, and I’m still not talking about it…
Why is there still ‘stuff’ we simply just don’t understand despite our progressive world?
I don’t understand the question. And I don’t know why I don’t understand the question, so I guess I don’t know the answer to the question.
Would you rather double your height or lose half your weight?
12 feet tall or 125 pounds? A buck and a quarter is probably too skinny for someone six foot tall, while at 12 feet tall I would no longer be able to fit in my house or my car. I guess if I were 12 feet tall, though, I’d have a pretty easy career in the NBA and could buy myself a mansion with very high ceilings.
What is your most essential kitchen tool?
Who is one blogger you really admire and why?
I don’t play favorites. The bloggers I read are all admirable in their own way. Those who can consistently stay at it month after month, year after year, are truly worth recognition…
Shelf Critter Theatre fans! Yes, all two of you! I’ve finally created a dedicated “Meet the Shelf Critters” page that contains a brief synopsis of all of the characters big and small. You can check it out here, or in my menu under the header!
