ACKNOWLEDGE ME

The first three strategic interventions created only a muted response from the defacto-governmental officials. I had personally thought that using their world as a colored pencil- pin cushion was a uniquely creative way to show my disdain for the mere mortals. A few bureaucrats were slightly unnerved, but the majority of the governing bodies were still assuming that they would have a say-so in the new governing of their world.

They feigned concerned at my surprisingly immense powers to effortlessly infiltrate their world. The news organizations in each of the largest municipal groups kept the local populous unenlightened as to my unlimited sovereign authority.

My tauntings had been broadcast to the world as the birthing and showcasing of a budding abstract artist just of the cusp of stardom.

I did not see myself having any desire to become a demonic dictator of my New World Order, but I would be respected and obeyed. If humane warnings and benevolent power displays would not graciously compel them to bend-the-knee, I had other options.

Questions from Fabulous Bloggers for this …

12-17-2021  Cyranny  “What’s the worst day of the week for you?”  Why?

1-3-2022   Mrs. A (Jazzocracy)   Mrs A proposes a question for a future SYW. “Would you ever consider posing naked or semi-naked for the camera or a live audience (acting in a play)?”

1-10-2022  Di    With the recent energy crisis here in the UK, would you prefer electric, gas, oil or some other means of heating your home?

1-10-2022  Marilyn  When this pops up later tonight, I MIGHT have thought of a few questions. Like: In your household, who takes care of the bills, taxes, and other financial stuff? Is one person responsible or is it a shared chore? And this has made me notice that my phone is missing. Oops.

1-10-2022  Yinglan  Not sure if this question was asked before. It’s a bit of a silly one: If you can have any one job (real or fiction) in the galaxy (yes, the galaxy, I’m widening the search radius, imagining relocation to other planets possible), what is that job?


What’s the worst day of the week for you?  Why?

Any day without an early morning.


Would you ever consider posing naked or semi-naked for the camera or a live audience (acting in a play)?

Just another night on the town (that’s not supposed to be talked about…)

You know there’s another option …

It’s either me or the dog and he’s not good with figures…

I would become a meteorologist on the moon. People could count on me to always be accurate. I would be an easy day-job so that in my spare time I could continue my budding career as a novelist.

I could record my news-weather broadcasts by the month- spend one day and do them all (just have my 30-days of clothes set aside in my dressing room. The weather never varies. You get two seasons every single day: intense summer during the daylight hours and a radical cold front every evening.

The highs during the 13+ hours of daytime would be extremely warm (260 F degrees by noon) where I would daily recommend high-octane sunscreen and an umbrella for some shade, and in the evenings be sure to dress warm and always keep your gloves clipped to your winter coat for the temperatures dip slightly each night ( minus 280 F degrees).

SKETCHES: WOTDC

Inventors of Tomorrow

Sketches on Brown Paper Bags

A-frames, three bedrooms

Mansions with tennis courts

Ten-year-old’s dream house

FYI: I used to stay up into the late hours of the morning as a fourth and fifth grader sketching out my plans for a majestic cabin in the woods or a monumental estate complete with an enclosed basketball court, two swimming pools (one inside and one outside) and a Wimbledon tennis court. Of course, each house had to have regulation croquet and horseshoe facilities.

ripped jeans and tie dyes

biker shorts and leopard prints

FYI: I have never found teens in ripped jeans a fashion statement. I would not list men (or ladies) in biker shorts or ladies (or men) in tight-fitted leopard print dresses as a chic statement either. Tie-died t-shirts were a great crafty activity for art class in fifth grade. But what do I know.

Fill in: ‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that …’ This is a question for ‘radical honesty’. What are the things you wouldn’t normally say? Things you would otherwise actually hide?  What’s on your mind? What would you really like to be able to say?

Have you ever broken anything? What about rules?

Are you afraid of spiders? What is your biggest fear, other than spiders?  (if you’re not afraid of spiders, use your biggest phobia instead).

Do you think time goes faster as you get older?

‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that a scientist who does allow themselves/ their work/ their viewpoint to be questioned actually have a mental disorder called NPD (narcissistic personality disorder)’ I watch them on the TV and hear them having conversations in the bowling alley often.

‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that a person who thinks they have all the answers ….’

‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that a person who won’t allow faith to be questioned ….’

There has been a pandemic of The God Complex for many many years!


Have you ever broken anything? What about rules?

Meet Mr. Dudley DoRight.


Are you afraid of spiders? What is your biggest fear, other than spiders?  (if you’re not afraid of spiders, use your biggest phobia instead).

Me, Tarzan. Me fear nothing!


Do you think time goes faster as you get older?

Ever since the third grade in school I anticipated the turning of each season. I still do. No real change.
