Part 15 of Crazy Time

(Link in meme-roll)
started 8:11 p.m. 3/12/17

1401. Do you like your movies and books to be more lighthearted or serious? Lately, I'm in desperate need of light reading. Life is too complicated and depressing right now.

1402. What's more important, first impressions or lasting impact? Lasting impact. Really? You have to ask that with our current glad-handing duplicitous-as-hell administration?

1403. Order these areas of psychological health from what you need the least improvement in to what you need the most improvement in: physical, emotional, social, intellectual, environmental, spiritual  OK, if I understand this properly, I'll go with this: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, environmental, physical.

1404. Do you react appropriately to things and control your feelings? Isn't there a fairly wide overlap here between losing my shit and being perfectly appropriate? I mean, inside I've been running in circles doing OMG OMG in my head since November. Most of the time I'm not doing that externally. Is that appropriate? I don't know.

1405. Do you have stable relationships? Yes, generally. I prefer stable to crazy.

1406. Do you need to be in a relationship to feel good about yourself? Well, it's better to have SOME friends, yeah.

1407. Which is the most clear and concise, your thoughts, your speech or your writing? Which is the least clear and concise?  Most = writing. Least = speech. There are times when my thinking is pretty wack too, but only when I'm amped up or tired.

1408. Are you always trying to learn new things? Indeed. It's kind of hard to avoid.

1409. Do you feel at peace? There are moments of that interspersed among the chaos.

1410. Do you have strong morals and ethics that you believe in and adhere to? I try to adhere to a certain code. I often fail.

1411. Are you over or under weight? One of those, yeah. Actually, as a child, I was quite skinny, very underweight. That's (ahem) changed.

1412. Do you think of the needs of all humanity or just the needs of yourself and those you know? Probably, if I'm honest, mostly me and those near me. But I try to keep the Big World in mind too.

1413. Do you recycle? I do. I have done for most of my life.

1414. Are you active in your community? Not so much.

1415. Are you sensitive to the needs of others? I think I am overly sensitive to people, and some specific people are particularly bad for me.

1416. Do you dress up to go to the mall? I don't even go to the mall, so...

1417. Have you ever been on anti depressants? They're why I'm not under a blanket crying every damned day.

1418. Name a part of your body. Elbow.
Give that part of your body a name. Ernie.
(why do guys do this, by the way? or is it just that I happen to not know ANY of the girls in the world who do?

1419. Is fourteen your lucky number? No.

1420. What could make you lose respect for someone? Lying lying lying lying lying.

1421. Is ignorance really bliss? Briefly. But not long-term, no.

1422. What can be described as 'even better than the real thing'? You do know that every one of U2's songs has something to do with God, right?

1423. Are you jealous that dog can lick their own genitals? Er, no. Why are guys.... nevermind. I just don't get it.
If you could do that would you ever leave the house?  ...smh... Hello, my 13-year-old male friend.

1424. What's in your wallet right now? Money, cards, a photo, not much else. I don't keep personal stuff in there.

1425. Do you write letters that you never send? Not so often. To be fair, I don't write letters that I actually do send, either.

1426. Do you ever get the feeling people are laughing at you? Sure. I don't really fucking care, either.

1427. Who's the one person you'd like to drop a house on? I would like to drop Mar-a-Lago on its owner's head, along with his cronies.

1428. Have you ever been swept off your feet? I have, literally, been carried over a couple of thresholds in my life. Emotionally? Yes, that too.

1429. Tell me why you don't like Mondays: ...but I do like Mondays! Sorry, Bob G., but I can only sing your song ironically.

1430. In the Harry Potter series the books seem to be getting have gotten darker and more serious with each new release. Do you like this change or do you prefer the story to be light? I think the story required some appropriate darkness. I mean, it's pretty scary when one's leaders have abdicated control to obviously evil people. I mean, it's a bit like Rowling was preparing us for today or something.

1431. How often do you update your diary? I don't keep a paper diary anymore, except to keep track on vacations. I don't update my proper blog more than a couple of times a quarter anymore. That makes me a bit sad.

1433. How many quizzes and/or surveys do you have in your diary as entries? I have a whole separate blog for that, dude.

1433. How many forwards does your diary contain? No clue what this is.

1434. What is your writing style like? Haphazard?

1435. How honest are you in your diary? I am WAY more honest online than I am in real life, for sure!

1436. Why do you write in your diary? It's mostly venting.

1437. Do you have a comet cursor on your diary description? Since I don't know wtf that is...I doubt it.

1438. Do you ever chat online? Do I... when was this thing written? I chat online pretty much every day in some way or another: Facebook PM, GChat, work intrachat, Twitter DM....

1439. Have you ever met someone from online? I sure have.
How'd that go? It has nearly always gone very well.

1440. What's your favorite horror...
Movie? I don't do horror movies. About the scariest movie I've made it through (and enjoyed) was "Psycho."
Book? The Exorcist was pretty good. I stayed up all night in high school finishing the novelization of "Alien" and it causes me nightmares to this day. Never sat through the movie though.

1441. Have you ever caught a mistake in a movie? Only all the time. Don't watch movies (or TV shows) with me or Beast; we spend an awful lot of time noticing continuity errors.

1442. Have you ever seen that munchkin who supposedly hangs himself in the Wizard of Oz? Oh ffs, NO. Stop it! Stop believing stupid stories like this!
If yes, how/when should someone look for it? Here, if you must. Dumbass.

1443. If you had to give yourself a letter grade (A, A-, B, B-, C, C-, D, D-, F) for things how would you grade yourself on: Why are there no +es?

Being a decent human being: B

Getting along with others: B-
Liking yourself: A-
Admitting your flaws: C
Self improvement: A++

1444. Are you kinky? Does anyone who is actually think they are? Or is their kink actually "normal" and the ones without it are weirdos?

1445. How would you feel if twice a week you could wake up next to the person you love? I wake up next to the person I love every day. 90% of the time it's one of my favorite things. Some days, though, I just don't want to see him.

1446. Out of all the people you know who is most likely to be one of the great minds of our time? Amy

1447. Have you ever been to:
Church? Yes. Today, even. OK, I didn't stay for the sermon and chatted in the office with a friend instead. It was a congregational member talking, not the pastor, and honestly...I wasn't feeling too charitable toward listening to the talk, for similar reasons to why my friend didn't want to stay.
Temple? I actually have been to Temple, but not for many decades.
A bar? I'm 53. You're asking if I've been to a bar? I used to live in Wisconsin, where there is literally at least one bar on every corner in every town. There may not be a grocery store or church, but there is ALWAYS a bar or it's not an actual town! Of course I've been in bars!
A house party? Not as such. I've been in people's houses for parties, but not a "house party." Unless a frat house party counts?
A rave? Nope. I'm too old.
A goth club?  Right. Nope.
A punk show? Sadly, no.
A hip hop club? No, and thanks, that'll be staying that way.
What sounds like the most fun out of that list? "Fun" would probably be a bar. I like church though. I've been in churches so much that it really is like a second home for me.

1448. So far, have you changed around any of the questions on this survey? I don't think so. But some of them have been ridiculous.

1449. Are you crying on the inside? There are days....
1450. Are you afraid of the future? Not really "afraid" but there's not a lot to look forward to.

1451. What will you dress up as this year for Halloween (if you celebrate it)? I haven't "dressed" for Halloween in a kabillion years.

1452. Do you think of some people as not worthy of being your friend? Some people have proven themselves unworthy.

1453. If you won $1,000 every week until you die, would you still go to school? What? I....don't....OK, right this was written by a kid. Clearly.
Would you still get a job? I'd have to have something to do. Also, $52,000 p.a. isn't as much as you'd think at age 13.

My brain is shutting down 9:35 p.m.

3/18 starting up again 9:03 p.m.

1454. What's the most difficult job you can think of? Teaching would be right up there. Coal miner for (obviously) very different reasons. Working for DJT though, has screamed to the top of my list this winter.

1455. If you could decorate your room with any theme you wanted what would you pick? I have. It's water-y: lighthouses, seashells, etc.

1456. Of the following bands which would you be most likely to check out?
roxy music (70's glam) Not my thing, but I can deal with some of their stuff.
the magnetic fields (current indie rock) They're ok too.
kraftwerk (experimental electronic rock) I like Kraftwerk. Haven't listened to them in a long time.

1457. You and your boy/girlfriend have been together 6 months or longer.... One day s/he wants to go to a strip club with his/her friends to hang out. It's guys'/girls' night out and you aren't invited. Would you be upset by this? Oh for cryin'...  OK, so I probably wouldn't care, but that's because I have no reason to worry that something hinky is going to happen. At some point, you just have to trust your partner. I'm not sure 6 months is long enough for that.

1458. Can a person avoid dying if he or she does not believe in death? Now you're just talking crazy, dude. We're all gonna die.

1459. If someone sings songs that they don't write and they don't play any instruments or mix the songs or have any creative input at all..Are they a musician? Anyone who can sing is musical. So yeah.

1460. What do the following stand for: [why are none of these in caps?]
html? Hypertext Markup Language
faq? Frequently Asked Questions
fao? I thought it was just the beginning of the name of a toy store in New York. It means something....?

aids? Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
r&b? Rhythm & Blues

1462. Do you read plays and books or just get the cliff notes? Uh. Yeah. I think you know the answer to this.

1463. What do you want to get out of life? Some good times, some adventures, some friends, some amazing food.

1464. Do you know what is really important to you? It's become much clearer in the past few years, yes.

1465. What trend has been getting on your nerves lately? Only everything.

1466. Do you forgive yourself when you make a mistake? Eventually....

1467. What tiny little very small thing has made you hugely happy? Smiles.

1468. Can you read body language well? Oh yeah. I don't even know I'm doing it, most of the time.

1469. Do you look people in the eye when you talk? Nope. Or rather, rarely. Looking straight at people makes me intensely nervous.

1470. Do you notice if they aren't looking you in the eye? Since I'm not looking at them, I can't tell, yo.

1471. Are you alert to opportunities? Sometimes. Perhaps more these days. I was an idiotic puppy for a long time.

1472. Puppet Yoda or digital Yoda? What about Lego Yoda? Or Origami Yoda? I really am an agnostic on this topic, to be honest.

1473. Do you look like the person you want to be? ...what does this actually even mean? I look like me. I don't aspire to be anyone but me.

1474. Do you behave like the person you want to be? On occasion. Except those frequent psychotic breaks when I don't.

1475. Some children were asked 'how would you make your marriage work?' One child, Ricky, age ten, said: 'Tell your wife she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck.' Is this good advice? Yes. Unless there is toilet paper on her shoe or spinach on her teeth, or otherwise obvious weirdness. If the dress makes her look fat NEVER tell her that. Get the salesperson to tell her that!

1476. Do you visualize your goals and dreams? I don't visualize well. I don't really even understand how one's brain is meant to do this. I've always felt completely stupid about this because it simply does NOT make sense to me.

1477. 4x + 3 = 15
What is the value of x? 3
Yay algebra. Thank you, Islam.

1478. Do you keep yourself organized? Barely.

1479. Does anyone really win an argument? Not lately. There's something very like a zen koan here, just out of reach.

1480. Have you ever had champagne? Yup. I've had it go down, and then I've had it all come back up for a couple of hours afterwards. Never again.

1481. Do you strive for perfection? Not anymore. I was raised that way, but I have since switched to the Church of Good Enough.

1482. Name one thing you understand. I understand that I will never understand much. It's more than just a little frustrating.

So tired....9:24
Forgot I started this! 5/20 5:14 p.m.

1483. Whatever it is are you afraid of it? Understanding things? Nope.

1484. Do you dislike being told what to do? Hell to the yes. I mightily suck at it!

1485. If you had a cat would you have it declawed? At least the front claws, if it were going to be an indoor cat.

1486. Do you prefer lobster, clams, or crab meat? Yes. Seriously, I'm not going to complain about any of these options!

1487. What do you think about guys who don't wear underwear? I find it kind of disgusting and wish they'd just finish getting dressed.

1488. What do you think about girls who don't wear bras? Some "girls" don't need bras, others find them really uncomfortable. Really, I find it weird, but understand both kinds of reasons.

1489. Do you ask for what you want? I'm much better at doing this now than I used to be.

1490. What are you against? Mean people.

1491. How many notes does your diary have? I don't think I know what this means so I'm moving right along.

1492. Ace of Base or Enya? Enya.

1493. What makes you feel awkward? Having nothing to contribute.

1494. Have you ever been to, and if yes, how does it compare to I would suspect that one is geared toward kids, but attracts all kinds of deviant adults.

1495. If you were going to switch to another diary website, which one would you go to? I've used Blogger from the beginning. Have tried a few others, but they're too fussy. Plus, I just discovered a little while ago that we now have emojis on the formatting bar here. Woot!

1496. Do you believe that certain books should be removed from high school libraries? Only when they fall apart or are out of date.

1497. How do you feel about gay and lesbian marriages? I love weddings. I don't really care about marriages, except my own. They're none of my business.

1498. Can you rearrange the letters in your name to form any other words (check here if you aren't sure My on-screen name is easily rearranged to say "act." My IRL first name rearranges to be rather unfortunate, but full legal name turns into "Unlatch Tarts Throw Orzo" which is mildly interesting.

1499. What is the sexiest moment in a movie? Right before anyone kisses.

1500. Do you have a favorite stand up comedian? Richard Pryor. George Carlin. Uhm, someone who's not dead? Jeff Dunham has his moments. Wanda Sykes is good.
