1. In what way is creativity just like sex?
There is a concept phase, a working phase and a climax with a period of basking in the delight of what you have just done. However I don’t think that creativity is like sex, it is more a part of good sex. Without creativity sex is possible but the result is very meh. Kind of like the way McDonalds burgers are food.
2. What important successes have you had in life that people just don’t know about?
Well most people in my Gemma life know very little about one of my big life achievements, raising two humans.
Most people in my Mrs Jones life don’t know about my blog / writing. I have published a novella (a long time ago) and I have written quite a body of work on these pages which a lot of people seem to enjoy. For me that is an achievement.
3. What do you like more being a leader or a follower?
In a previous job the company would send all of their front line managers to these leadership bonding / development camps. During one activity the facilitator had to pull out all of his tricks and stops to keep me in line and foil the success of the group. Apparently I automatically get people to where they need to be. Which would make me a leader.
I wouldn’t say I like being a leader all of the time. But I really hate being designated a follower when the designated leader is an idiot.
4. If you could send a message to an alien species, what would it be?
Send another virus. Covid-19 is not killing the stupid people fast enough.
5. Have you ever been happy that you lied?
No. I make a point of trying to keep lying to a minimum in my life. Although sometimes I slip up. I am never happy about it though.
Bonus: What can you do that no one else can?
Mr Jones says that I can fuck a string of guys like no one else he knows. Not sure if that is something I feel good about. For myself I am going to say that I am awesome at coming up with out of the box ideas to solve problems.
