Today’s question left me a bit puzzled, but I’m ready to answer anything, no matter how bizarre.
Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total asshole. (NOTE: Credit to Cyranny for this question from one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.)
Why can’t I be a happy asshole or an intermittently depressed nice old lady at the same time? As a matter of fact, I think that pretty much describes me.
Have you ever made someone cry?
I’m a mother. What do you think?
Are you a dreamer or a go-getter?
I went and got when I was young and hot. Now, I dream of hitting the lottery and repairing the house.
If you were in a band, what instrument would you play?
I play the piano. Or used to. I can strum a little guitar. Or used to. I sang, back when I had a voice. Now, I just turn the music up and sing along so no one can hear me. Also, whenever someone on television plays a piece I used to perform, I point out to Garry that I used to play that. How unimpressive can one get? I could be a depressed asshole about how my music skills have fled. Instead, I do my own version of Karaoke. Works for me.
This gets complicated. First, I’d like to thank Google for forcing me to stop using their YouTubeTV cable-replacement package. As soon as it became obvious to me — and why it wasn’t obvious before, I really don’t know — that Google was playing fast and loose with private information gleaned from what we watch on television, I got really pissed off.
I am very tired of corporate social media companies believing they have the right to poke their virtual noses into our stuff. We changed to a different streaming “cable-like” station and all is not only well, it is better.
A lot of problems we had with YouTubeTV vanished when we switched. It turns out, they were not only intrusive, they also had a lot of transmission issues. Now we have Fubo-TV which actually has NESN — the station (only station) that broadcasts regular Red Sox games in the Boston area.
Also, I want to thank Tom Curley for strongly advising us to pick up Paramount Plus. Over all, we now have a much better set-up, more channels, and finally, finally, finally, we can watch a Red Sox game! Although depending on how the season goes, it might turn out to be a mixed blessing.
