Confessions Question

What is your present state of mind?

Proust Questionnaire Number Sixteen

I’m going to take this question to mean what am I thinking about right now.  So this will be an incredibly short answer.

I’m thinking that I need to talk about boobs less on Twitter.

I’m thinking that I had an awesome weekend. Great food. Great company. Then great company, but I missed out on the great food. Then more great food.  More great company. Then more great food. More great company.

But mostly, I’m thinking about my yearly viewing of It’s A Wonderful Life.  This is causing me to wonder if the world would be a better place if I had never been born.

Don’t take this as me being depressed or sad.  Definitely don’t post any comments or send me any messages reassuring me that the world is a better place because I’m in it. Definitely nothing with examples of how I somehow improved your life and prevented you from being a crack whore, petty thief or NASCAR fan.  I’m not fishing. Keep that stuff to yourself. Admire me from a distance, if you will.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I will never post anything in this forum or in a social networking environment of the “woe-is-me” variety. I don’t play the game where I beg for other people’s pity. I keep my own counsel. I don’t pity farm.

It is simply an honest intellectual question that I am thinking about right now.  Do the positives I have brought to this world outweigh the negatives that I have brought to this world?  More importantly, what can I do to increase the balance in favor of this being a better world for my being in it?

Christopher D. Bennett Trivia Question

What brand of camera does Christopher D. Bennett use?

  1. What if you really DID keep us from becoming a crack whore? I think that’s a natural question to ask yourself, though, in a completely rhetorical way – I do the same every time I watch “It’s a Wonderful Life.” I do know that I have saved countless old pharmacists from giving people rat poison.

    I should really know this about your camera. Nikon?

  2. Angie,

    I would need some very strong empirical evidence that I saved somebody from being a crack whore.

    I have never stopped a pharmacist from poisoning a kid, but I have called somebody brainless for not liking coconut.

    Oh wait, I don’t like coconut.


    Sony is correct. I might have also accepted Minolta. Follow this link to pick out the next question I will answer:
