If It's Friday, It Must Be A Meme!

1. Do you have a dream you will always strive to achieve until your dying day?

Every morning, to wake up and ask myself “What do I want to do today?” And then whatever it is, to be able to do it. I’m sure the specifics will vary, but “writing” and “having others enjoy my writings” will show up often.

2. Do you believe in Fate or Free Will, or something else?

I believe our choices are heavily guided by subconscious social, psychological and biological drives, but we essentially have Free Will. I don’t believe in Fate as a predetermined script that we act out. Fate hasn’t brought me to where I am today; it was the interplay of innumerable choices made by me and everyone who has affected my life in response to ever-changing circumstances.

3. Marilyn Monroe. Conspiracy or tragic accident?

Hmmmm; tried to care, but can’t. There are certainly tragic aspects to her life and death, but I have no idea, and no real interest in, whether her demise was accidental or planned.

4. Favourite childhood sweets/candy?

I didn’t have a lot of candy growing up. I do recall having phases where I’d have a favorite, then eat it enough to get sick of it. Malted Milk Balls and Swedish Fish. I haven’t eaten either one in years.

5. Favourite cocktail (alcoholic or virgin) and it's ingredients?


Um, sorry. Pet peeve of mine.

Grasshoppers! Creme de Menthe, Creme de Cacao and cream.
Also fond of Nuclear Blue Grasshopper Jell-o, but that’s not exactly a drink.
