Ask Me Your Questions; I'll Tell You No Lies

I'm quite proud of my forthrightness and honesty, especially since I was a compulsive liar for most of my life - an effect of trying to avoid beatings at all costs that became a habit I wasn't able to kick for a while.

It makes me happy when my friends who know me well tell those who have just met me that you can ask me anything and I'll tell them the truth. Anytime that happens I get a big ole shit-eating grin on my face and nod. Knowing my friends know they can rely on me for that is just the cherry on the sundae.

So I was thinking, I've been blogging for a while and I'm quite odd so you people must have some questions for me (you'd better or else this post is a bust!) and now's your chance to ask 'em. Leave your question in the comments and I'll answer them in my next post.

Indulge your curiosity!

What TV character, past or present, do you most closely identify with?

Also, what actress from the present or past would play you in "the movie"?

You can see the future? Please elaborate! :-)

Well, I get these flashes sometimes when I'm doing something like, for instance, sitting in a car being driven somewhere. And I'll see myself in a different place and time but also in a car and usually a few months later I enter the moment I saw back then and realize I'd seen it before.

For instance, when I was living in PA I had a vision of sitting at a desk, covered in tons of stuff that was completely unfamiliar to me, working on a computer. After I moved to Seattle, I worked for a woman in the Henry Art Gallery and one day I had to use the computer in her office since the ones I normally used were occupied. When I sat down and started working I suddenly realized this was the desk and the moment I'd seen back before I even got the job.

It just happens with random, mostly totally ordinary stuff like that.

Weird, almost like reverse Deja Vu.

Interesting for sure!

Now I have a question---how many tattoos do you have, and do you regret any of them?

May said...

Good question, Sinic. I added it to the updated Q&A post.

Thinking of all the people in history, living or dead, choose three that you would like to have dinner with, explain why and describe the dinner conversation.

(Note: When you have dinner with historical figures, they will be alive and healthy as they were in their own time, not zombies).

Oh May.....where to start? It is like I just walked into the biggest, bestest buffett in Vegas.

"What amazing bravery allows you to post your real name, real face and real job so freely alongside very real opinions and descriptions of sex, politics, and other things some of us tend to keep out of the public realm, esp. job market / professional life?"

and

"Wow, was it really that easy for you to stop eating meat? Because you're making the rest of us try-ers feel like anti-vegan idiots …" It's not easy to change diet, in my opinion. Lucky! : )

that "reverse deja vu" thing (which i just call deja vu or maybe i don't understand what other people experience) happens to me, too. i just consider it some stupid consciousness glitch / chemistry blip. probably happens to a lot of people if they are portraying it on tv? would that we could figure it out for real and control it.

Applecart & EMawKC - I'm going to answer your questions here cuz I'm too lazy to update my other post yet again.

So, Applecart, I have just always been the confessional sort of author and since I have imagined telling thousands of people about my life in books, doing it on the internet doesn't feel really weird to me. Also, I work for a really liberal organization.

And, yes it was easy to give up meat because I was also giving up cigarettes at the time and it was WAY easier to give up the meat. I only crave bacon and shrimp for some reason and I never ate those very often before I gave up meat.

EMaw - I would just like to talk to some random ancestors from different time periods. Supposedly my family is distantly related to some Roman emperor, talking to one of the women from his house hold would be cool. I'd like to talk to the Native American woman one of my great great (etc) grandpa's married and one of my Pennsylvania Dutch ancestors that first moved to MO.
