I stumbled across Rory’s questions this week and thought I’d give it a shot. I always wanted to be a guest on The Late Show or any talk show that would have me, for that matter. However, that doesn’t look like something that may happen, so it’s good that Rory provided this opportunity.
|You have a dinner party and may invite four guests from the following categories one fictional, one dead, and one alive, and a naked chef [wearing an apron only but no clothes underneath – or if you wish, for whatever reason, your chef can be wearing underclothes – pants/top].|
Who will you invite to eat, and who will you ask to cook for your dinner party?
Ok, let me see now because these lists would typically be long, and narrowing it down to one of each takes some thought.
Tony Soprano, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Melissa McCarthy, and Michael Symon.
If nothing else, lord knows this room would be loud and passionate. I would like to listen to Tony and Ruth discuss justice since they have, shall we say, different techniques. Melissa McCarthy is a quick wit which makes me laugh out loud. It would be fun to watch her moderate the Tony and Ruth debate. As for kitchen duty, I chose Michael because he is passionate about food. He is animated in the kitchen, so he probably should be wearing something for protection, but I’ll leave it up to him.

|Have you ever slept on/in a hammock?|
That would be a no.
|Do you find it easy to maintain friendships with other people?|
Yes. However, it’s usually because of the effort I apply.
|Are you a person of ethics?|
If so, how does that impact your daily life?
Have you seen the world lately? Indeed it does.
|Are you decisive or indecisive as a person?|
It depends on the question. Do you want a piece of cake? I’m very decisive. Do you want to take off tomorrow for an adventure? A million things immediately rush into my brain.
|Why do people hold double standards?|
Because they lack the ability to look at situations with the greater good in mind. People of power are the masters of double standards.

It never occurred to me, so I would say it’s unimportant.

|When at school, what were your top five subjects that you were passionate about?|
5?! English, gym, lunch, art, music
Why was this – what did you love about them?
They were not as restricted as the other subjects.
Are those five subjects still present in your life today in any form?
Hahaha, yes, especially gym, lunch, art, and music.
|With regard to the paranormal, do you choose to not believe because there is nothing to believe or because you feel it is safer to not believe?|
I’m a believer to the fullest extent of believing.

I’m a professional people meeter and friend maker.
Is there a process you adopt to identify if they are the right fit for you?
Yes. They must have a sense of humor and the ability to hold a deep conversation.
