I’ve Got to Be Me

Are you more productive at night or in the morning? Do you think it’s possible to change and get used to another schedule?
I enjoy sleeping, so I often wake up late, but I feel that most of my day is productive.  I have written 4,029 posts in the just under 5 years that I have been here, and they were written in the mornings, afternoons and evenings.  The minority of them were not written at night, as that is when I mostly watch TV.  I am very adaptable, and I am sure I could adjust to a different time schedule, if I had to do that.

What’s the biggest vehicle you’ve driven?  If you don’t drive, what’s the biggest vehicle you’ve ridden in?
I drove a big truck with 29 gears for work to make deliveries, but I never went that far with it.  My parents had an RV with a bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom and that is the biggest thing that I drove with any regularity.

What songs would be played on a loop in hell?  (Suspend disbelief for this one, it’s cool not to believe in Hell, but let’s use our imaginations to answer.  Of course one can always skip the questions they find odd too.  And yes, I took into account that individual tastes will influence individual choices.)
Rap, hip-hop, metal, K-pop and country.

(Deep and chewy philosophical question):     What does it mean to be a person?  What constitutes “personhood?” (there may be some diverse opinions, but we’re all mature adults in here, so be respectful of others please).
René Descartes said, “I think, therefor I am” to determine that he was alive and not stuck in some Matrix reality.  His being able to reason was enough for him, but to be an actual person, I think it takes much more.  People need to be able to blead, as suffering is an important part of life, because it keeps us connected to reality.  We are not here forever and in order to be a rational creature, we must understand that life is fragile.  Another thought on this would be that all you have to do is to be born, in order to be considered a person.

How were your spirits (mood) over the past week?
I had another allergic attack and I think that I may have this thing figured out now.  I thought I was allergic to peanuts and I stopped eating them, but when I had another reaction, I wondered if there was anything else that I was doing different.  I realized that I had recently started a regiment of 5 new vitamins, so I stopped taking them last Friday and so far, so good.

  1. What songs would be played on a loop in hell? – I think these guys got it right?

    Hey you, yeah you

    Sometimes I think this woman is kinda hot
    Sometimes I think this woman is sometimes not
    Puts me down, fools me around
    What’s she doing to me?
    Out for satisfaction, any piece of action
    That ain’t the way it should be
    She needs love, smells out a man
    She’s gotta see
    Pours my beer, licks my ear
    Brings out the devil in me

    Hell ain’t a bad place to be

    Spends my money, drinks my booze, stays out every night
    And I got to thinking, hey, just a minute, something ain’t right
    Disillusions and confusion
    Make me want to cry
    All the same, you lead your games
    Tellin’ me your lies
    Don’t mind her playing a demon
    As long as it’s with me
    If this is hell then you could say
    It’s heavenly

    Hell ain’t a bad place to be

    Late at night turns down the lights
    Closes up on me
    Opens my heart, tears it apart
    Brings out the devil in me

    Hell ain’t no bad place to be

    1. Thanks Melanie and I found some questions that you might want to use.
      What would you name your boat if you had one?
      What will finally break the internet?
      If you had to change your name, what would your new name be, and why would you choose that name?
      What are some things that sound like compliments but are actually insults?
      If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?
