Blog: AOBIBLIOPHILE™ (aobibliophile.booklikes.com)

 

Are you named after anyone?

My paternal grandfather. We have the same first and last name.

When he was laid to rest, it was weird hearing the priest  say his name (our name) during the service. This was how it would probably sound like when my time comes. What's even more weird is seeing the same name on the grave marker. Good thing we have different middle names. Still...

Blog: hippieed perceptions (hippieed.booklikes.com)

 

What’s the first thing you notice about people?

Depends on the person, I guess.  If they have tattoos, those.  They they are wearing white sunglasses, that.  How they carry themselves, hair color, clothes so on and so forth. Body language, art and clothing can speak a lot about people.

When was the last time you cried?

I'm always getting teary eyed.  Just a sensitive guy I guess.  Usually it happens during a tender thought about my children, at church, or when I'm reading.  There were a couple times when Les Miserables got to me most recently.

Scary movie or happy endings?

An equal amount of both. Yeah, that's a cop out answer, but it's also the truth! I can't do too much of one or the other, or they lose their shine. You need the sad/scary to appreciate the happy!

Blog: Sarah's Library (sarahf1984.booklikes.com)

 

What’s the first thing you notice about people?

This is a terrible thing to admit to, but I notice their looks first.  When I first see a person, before they begin speaking, I take note of the way they're dressed and whether their hair looks clean.  First impressions really do count, which is why I find it hard going out because I figure if I look at others in that way, others are looking at me in that way.

Blog: Paul Read or Dead (paulnelson.booklikes.com)

 

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

 

Well maybe, yeah, I think I'm a laugh, I can be a bit of a twat at times, I work with a big group of guys and there's a lot of piss taking going on. I'm a bit of a wind-up merchant and my first reaction to most situations is to make light of it with a joke. If anyone's ever been offended by any comment I've made then my advice, step back and look at it in a light hearted manner. If you’re still annoyed them I admit I’m not everyone’s cup of tea.
