It’s hump day, Maphia, and even though things are murky and depressing here in the blogosphere, this trooper is going to try to make this as positive as he can. And he’ll begin by referring to himself in the third person for some asinine reason.
As you should all know by now, Wednesday is this trooper’s appointed day to wax narcissistic by answering questions about himself. Questions posed by the distinguished Cee herself, who could out-interview Barbara Walters. Or even Oprah.
Let’s get to the meat of the post, shall we?
What object do you always have with you when traveling and why?
I normally have my smart phone with me at all times. I hate to admit it, but I’m addicted to it. I feel naked without it and there’s really no good reason why. I’ve become a slave to it.
What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?
Honestly, I’d probably pick writing since I write on a daily basis now. I coasted through my Language Arts classes in school because I really wasn’t interested in reading OR writing in my youth. Now I can’t imagine my life with out it. I think I’ve got a decent writing voice, I can spell, and I’m fairly proficient with grammar, but other than that I have no formal education or training on how to write. I don’t know the first thing about creative writing and I hated essay’s in school. So, yeah, I’d pick writing.
Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
Quite frankly I’d settle for either one of them right now because I have neither. Honestly, when I read the exploits of bloggers like Samara, Helena, and Aussa, I feel a tinge of jealousy that they spent their younger years having adventures and living life to the fullest while I raised children. Again, no regrets here. I wouldn’t trade my boys for ANYTHING, but I’d love to have stories of their caliber to tell.
What are your favorite spices?
Probably either black pepper or red pepper. Anything that brings the heat.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Not a damned thing. I don’t have it in me to find things to be grateful for at the moment with all of the shit that has happened in the past few days.
