Writing this on the last day of the year to be published on the first of the new one, so it is the last and the first. May everyone’s New Year be full of joy, laughter, health, and hope!
For the parents in the crowd: What would be the absolute worst name you might give your child? If you’re not a parent (I’m not), then what’s the worst name you could give your pet?
I really can’t think that way. Anything his father would have given him would have been the worst name. He was fond of obscure Celtic names that no one has used in at least 200 years. Owen was a compromise.
I let Garry name the pets. It’s safer that way.
What mildly annoying curse might you wish you could curse annoying people with?
Mildly annoying? Why bother? If it’s not VERY annoying, it’s not worth your breath!
What’s the weirdest thing you did as a child?
I was such a weird child. I have no idea. I was just weird pretty much all the time.
Do you believe things happen for a reason or are random?
Things happen for a reason or randomly. Sometimes a little of both. I think we tend to make reasons for random events because we can’t bear that something so awful happened for no reason at all.
And finally, in the spirit of New Year’s: What’s a resolution (if you make them, I don’t) you’re making for the New Year? How confident are you in keeping it a reasonable amount of time?
I don’t do resolutions. If I was going to make one, it would be that I make it until the next one! I sincerely hope I make it.
