The Myth Memers

One of those little questionnaires just to dip a toe back into blogging. Took this from Chris Hull's Facebook.

1. Do you make your bed? No.

2. The first car that was officially yours? 1985 Chevy Nova, back around late 1994 when I was 18. It was in pretty terrible condition.

3. Three grocery items you don't run out of? I don't know, I don't keep tabs on it enough. (Pow functioning.) Usually we always have eggs, milk, and cheese.

4. When did you start doing your own laundry? Around eighth grade, when we moved into the condo.

5. If you could, would you go to High School again? Gods, no. Even if it meant applying myself better (hard, because of ADHD and even then PTSD) to secure a better future, I couldn't live the same way over again and endure what I did.

6. Can you parallel park in under three moves? I think. I used to be good at it, but I haven't driven a car since some time in 2010 or 2011.

7. A job you had which people would be shocked to know about? Construction clean-up, back in high school. If you only know me from this blog from the time that the mental illness stopped me from a lot of stuff, you might be surprised to know that I used to be great at customer service.

8. Do you think aliens are real? I think they're probable.

9. Can you drive a stick shift? No, even when I drove.

10. Guilty TV pleasure? I'm catching up on Agents of SHIELD on Netflix right now. I don't know if it's a guilty pleasure, as such, but I don't care for it, I just "have" to watch it because it's part of the MCU. It's not as dreadful as season 3, but it's not good.

11. Would you rather be too hot or too cold? Cold. Becca hates it, but I keep it freezing at night. I overheat; I'm fat and I generate a lot of body heat.

12. If the world ends do you want to be one of the survivors? No. Maybe it sounds bleak, but I'm that kind of depressed person who expects to die suddenly but isn't prepared to weather a hard survival.

13. Sweet or Salty? Sweet.

14. Do you enjoy soaking in a nice bath? I do.

15. Do you consider yourself strong? No.

16. Something people do, physically, that drives you crazy? When people try to talk to you while they're simultaneously yawning.

17. Something you do, physically, that you are sure drives everyone else crazy? I can't always keep up while walking.

18. Do you have any birthmarks? No.

19. Favorite childhood game? Pac-Man.

20. Do you talk to yourself? Yeah. It's actually part of my therapy to help calm me down.

21. Do you like doing jigsaw puzzles? Yes.

22. Would you go on a reality show? No.

23. Tea or coffee? Coffee.

24. First thing you remember wanting to be when you grew up? Either a fireman or in the Army, like my Dad.

25. No matter how much money you have or don't have, what are you an absolute snob about? I won't watch a movie on broadcast television if I've never seen it before.

Welcome back. I'm sure to steal this for October.

Are you still out there? Hope you're doing OK.

My wife had surgery in October and then I had my own traumatic hospitalization in November and I guess I had a bit of a nervous breakdown. I haven't really gotten to the point yet where I feel comfortable engaging with my online stuff yet, trying to sort of re-figure myself out. It's not sure, I'm just kind of hibernating, I think.

Thanks for checking. I hope you're having a nice holiday season. I hope to be back eventually.

It's not *dire (not "sure"). Not a severe breakdown, I just sort of lost my anchors.

Hey. A reader from several years back, I got a craving to check out your amazing Evaluating Disney posts after so long. They still make for a great read, it's really cool to watch some shorts or movies for the first time (period or in ages) then seeing what you thought of each.

Then I saw the latest posts and realized what rough times you've been through. Man, suffice to say I hope all is getting better for Becca and yourself. That feeling of either forgetting who one used to be, or fearing there wasn't much to start with...Been there. Still there some days. Sending you strength. You're not only an engaging writer, but also a darn affable fella, and you don't deserve the cruelty the human mind can unleash. You just don't.

Here's to life shining its best on Becca and you.

Hope you are well.

I had a bit of a breakdown a few months back. Still dealing with it, but trying to get better.

Hope to see you blogging again. There aren't that many of us still doing it nowadays.
