Rory offers up another weekend quickie and I have time to squeeze it in between my rounds of social engagements, of which there are none.
|Are you more of a sarcastic or pleasant personality or alternatively a mixture of the two pending your mood of the day?|
It depends on the circumstances. I’m mostly pleasant around other people, especially at work. Alone, I mutter to myself nonstop, ranting, cursing, snarking, etc. I try not to be too sarcastic in public, since sarcasm is an unattractive trait and exposes the weakness of an argument. If you have the facts, there’s no need to be a jerk. Sarcasm is not equal to real humor, despite what men on dating sites seem to believe. See what I did there? Oops.
|We live in a world of data, knowledge and information – but do we always have the right sort available at the right time?|
We certainly do not. Take nutrition, for example. How many times have we been told different or flat-out incorrect information regarding food? And then it turns out certain “studies” were funded by the same industries they touted. Eggs good, eggs bad, repeat endlessly. Carbs good, fat bad, carbs bad, fat good. On and on.
|What are three of your favourite ‘go to’ websites [not blogs] for information or relaxation?|
I like playing Microsoft Solitaire card games and doing Happy Color pictures for relaxation. I mostly go to the LA Times, CNN, or ABC for news.
|How lucky are you?|
I’m pretty damn lucky to have been born a white person in the USA. Anything else is frosting on the cupcake.
|What’s the best advice you have ever received from a friend?|
Not a friend, but an ex: “Sometimes the best thing to do is… nothing.” This applies to many situations, most particularly those in which you are having trouble making a decision. Just wait it out.
|You have five minutes to pack a bag with the absolute essentials to be away for a long weekend in an unknown location … what do you pack and why?|
Phone, charger, change of clothes plus an extra jacket, teabags, Clif bars. Give kitties extra food and water before I go…
