Early in the morning, because my body decided to wake me.
After I got it to settle, I couldn’t fall back asleep. This is one of the things I have to deal with. Honestly, it’s the sort of thing I’ve dealt with for a long time, but, normally I fall into a rhythm. There’s no way for me to go get hopped up on caffeine and nicotine at Waffle House, so I will probably be dragging come midday.
Onto the survey….
1. Kirk or Picard?
Kirk. For a variety of reasons. When I was 22, and originally took this, I made some comments about Picard. I probably wouldn’t talk bad about him today, but he does lack leadership qualities I find important; he doesn’t inspire. Yes, Kirk is reckless. At the same time, that seat-of-the-pants decision-making inspires confidence in the crew. Plus, they actually like him.
All that said, age has taught me that Benjamin Sisko.
2. What’s your favorite Jello flavor?
3. What’s your opinion of voicemail/answering machines.
I really don’t miss using them. Telephony is one of those things Carly Fiorina helped kill.
4. Chevy or Ford?
If I could still drive, I still wouldn’t buy a Chevy after what they did with the bankruptcy in 2009. I did own a Ford for something like six years. I liked that car a lot. It was fun.
5. Billy, you like movies about Gladiators?
6. Mac or Win?
I’m writing this on a Mac, so I guess that says something. At the same time, Microsoft has really done a lot to make Windows suck less. Using my Windows 10 work computer doesn’t really bother me. Same goes for my wife’s school computer. I’m honestly a bit lost with Linux these days; count me as a system hater, maybe.
7. What do you think about Dr. John Gray?
I honestly don’t remember, and am too lazy to STFW. Was he the one who wrote Men are from Mars, or whatever? My lack of knowledge should say that I don’t have a strong opinion.
8. What are your vices?
I’ve tried to be better about them lately. No need to enumerate.
9. What do you think of Jerry Springer?
Old news. I’m sure the citizens of Cincinnati don’t miss him.
10. What do you think of the OD?
I miss it, certainly. I’m really happy I found my archive. There’s a lot of fluff, for sure, but there’s also a lot of memories there. I have friends I’ve kept. There’s a few people I wonder about from time to time, but… It did help fill this odd desire I have to write.
