Well my thanks to Emily Mae Hood of New York Family Adventures for tagging me for this In The SpotLight challenge – l am not familiar with this one, so am unsure if l am using the right image or l had to make one – however loving raccoons as l do, it fitted.
1. What’s your usual Starbucks order?
I don’t drink Starbucks, you’re reading a guy who is like a walking disaster everytime he walks into a coffeeshop – Suze can master it, l just look at them and say “Black coffee, no sugar thanks” To be met with in some sickly voice “Americano?” “No, just coffee thanks. just a black coffee – you know water, coffee, together, nothing else, black coffee?” Till another silly question comes along .. “Just a fucking coffee please, no fuss!” It’s at this point that Suze hurries over, whisks me away with the line “I am so sorry, he doesn’t get out much!!”
2. What does your workstation look like?
Well my workstation is currently a work in progress to be completed this week, however Suze took this photo yesterday on my new iPad Mini – so as this question is to be addressed in a post of mine later on this week, there’s no harm is rewarding my readership with this mugshot! Plus it doesn’t reveal too much of my office set up just yet. Just a silly looking image of yours truly in an overly large chair [that wasn’t supposed to be this big!!] Plus madam la pooch is in here with me most days now! Ps – l don’t photograph well … this is my serious face!!
3. Favourite food?
Well it’s actually pizza, but l am officially off the camp site for that now for the rest of my life, but that is my all time favourite.
4. Favourite author?
I don’t have a favourite author – l read from many and it depends what genre l am currently reading from – like now, l am reading a load of Positivity fields.
5. What do you think of open relationships?
Should l think anything about them? They are good for some people, not for others. If you have a clingy partner, then they won’t work. Are they for me? Not these days, no.
6. What is your favourite video game?
Fallout 4 – l even have clothing with it on!!
7. Guilty pleasure treat?
Dancing when no one is looking to songs like these …. pumping it large when Suze isn’t here!
8. Favourite movie?
Way too many to mention – films that have a profound effect on me probably, but so profound l vow to never watch them again, but try and do something about it. The one below, l watched once and cried more or less half way through to the end. I selected it, but can’t even watch it today – it was this film that got me keenly interested and involved in animal conservation.
9. Favourite book?
Two actually – Bimbo and Topsy by Enid Blyton and Smokey Joe the Fish Eater by John O’Grady. I have original copies and are as valuable to me as my Teddy Bear collection.
10. Twitter or Instagram?
Neither can’t stand them personally, but l may tolerate for and from a professional viewpoint only in the near future – truth is l don’t like social media platforms and whilst WP is a form of social media, it’s a more manageable social media. Unless of course some trogladyte like Tygpress come along.
11. Desktop or laptop?
Desktop – laptop’s freak me out.
12. Best advice you’ve ever received?
“Things Take Time”
13. What project are you working on right now?
Currently l am working on my neutralism plus positivity levels so that l can reap the benefits of more focus for my blog and new features which will take me out of my comfort zone by a good 100% and working to achieve 100K yearly income for my business by 2021.
14. Favourite colour?
Red and yellow.
15. Did you get good grades in school?
I hated school, but l loved certain aspects of it, worked my ass off for good grades in those subjects and basically didn’t give a monkey’s about the other ones. School basically bored me, my peers seemingly worked at a snail’s pace and because of that l switched off and didn’t really apply myself, but l was earning good incomes from home businesses from the age of 12, so it was more of the entrepreneurial thing for me.
16. Dream job?
To be in a comfortable financial business to feel fulfilled.
17. Play any sports?
Currently none, certainly none l used to enjoy like hockey, baseball and archery – but l like walking, and will be returning to that hopefully soon, as well as swimming and yoga.
18. Do you have a degree?
Degree no, diploma’s yes.
British with French ancestory.
20. What is your favourite kind of blog post?
I read from an eclectic mix of literature here in WP – but principally, informative, something with some bite and body to it, philosophy, intellectual fiction, reality and resonation posts, dark poetry, erotica, mental health – l don’t really have a favourite per se.
