Mad Libs

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Mad Libs, and this is what it said:

Turn to your co-workers, kids, Facebook friends, family — anyone who’s accessible — and ask them to suggest an article, an adjective, and a noun.

There’s your post title!

Now write.

And this is my response:

I asked my brother GC and he provided me with this article, adjective, and noun: “An Odd Question.”.

An Odd Question

Today I was asked an odd question that left me a bit confused at first, an article, what kind and what is that; and if they are referring to the grammar term article is that an, a, and the (and sometimes some)?

I checked on Wikipedia to make sure: article (grammar), and here are the Wikipedia articles for adjective and noun and mad libs for those who are not sure about what those mean.

I wondered how were people who were alone would be able to answer this Daily Prompt, and this Daily Prompt seemed a bit inconsiderate to me; and I felt that this Daily Prompt should have been more clear, and that it should have provided in-text links that would define those terms and that they should have more clearly said what they want you to write about.

Also for almost a month or for a month now there has been a bug where the Daily Prompts do not show up in the WordPress.com Reader so you have to be following by email or manually to even know that a Daily Prompt is released each day, I reported this bug twice to the WordPress.com Staff and it was acknowledged as a bug and they said that they were working on it, but it still has not been fixed yet weeks later; and so it would be nice if they could fix this, and I would recommend that other people also report this to them too (WordPress.com Contact Page orhelp@wordpress.com) if you have noticed this same bug.

Evasive Action

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Evasive Action, and this is what it said:

What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept?

Did the truth ever come out?

And this is my response:

I recently said that I thought and I felt that the Daily Prompts were asking too many personal questions sometimes and now today’s Daily Prompt is even more personal, wow, really?

At this rate future Daily Prompts might ask for our passwords, bank account numbers, birth certificates, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, usernames, licenses, national IDs, tax records, degrees, diplomas, passports, safe codes, safe words, et cetera. 😀

Also for almost a month or for a month now there has been a bug where the Daily Prompts do not show up in the WordPress.com Reader so you have to be following by email or manually to even know that a Daily Prompt is released each day, I reported this bug twice to the WordPress.com Staff and it was acknowledged as a bug and they said that they were working on it, but it still has not been fixed yet weeks later; and so it would be nice if they could fix this, and I would recommend that other people also report this to them too (WordPress.com Contact Page or help@wordpress.com) if you have noticed this same bug.

Anyway, my answers to this once again overly personal Daily Prompt is:

That is classified information, and even if it was not I would probably not answer this question.

No, and I plan on keeping it that way.

You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine.

What do you build?

Money For Nothing

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Money For Nothing, and this is what it said:

If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living.

Describe your ultimate job.

If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love?

What fulfills you?

If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.

And this is my response:

I think that the Daily Prompts have been getting a bit too personal sometimes, which limits my responses, and so once again I will not be able to say much in my response; and so I hope that they will tone down the personal questions a bit.

I simply would like a support type job working in the background where I do not have to directly deal with other people much or at all that I can at least somewhat enjoy and at least somewhat be good at and that I can handle (mentally, emotionally, socially, and physically), that offers a good and safe working environment (physical and social et cetera), shorter work periods and enough holidays and vacations, that would allow me to at least support myself and my family on the basics (food, water, shelter, utilities, education, health care (physical and mental and emotional), money, recreation (social), safety, et cetera), and that would allow me to help others and the world in at least some way instead of making things worse or instead of helping keep things worse.

Thanks Hindsight

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Thanks, Hindsight, and this is what it said:

How is the year shaping up for you so far?

Have your predictions come true, or did you have to face a curve ball or two?

(Thank you, BasicallyBeyondBasic, for the timely prompt suggestions!)

And this is my response:

For privacy reasons I will answer the first question in the form of images like the one above:

And my response to the second question is:

Yes, pretty much, things are continuing where last year left off.

The end,
