Manic Monday

Rats! My memory is getting more and more sieve-like by the day. I almost forgot this week's Manic Monday, hosted, as ever, by Lisa. Here are this week's questions - and my answers.

Are you a talker or a listener? Is it ever possible to really be both?

I'm more of a listener. I only tend to talk if I have something to say. I don't pollute the atmosphere with excess hot air :). Is it possible to be both? Maybe. But my life experience tells me most people gravitate more towards one than the other, even if they possess both skills.

Do you think God has a sense of humor?

I don't believe in God. I hope this doesn't offend anyone. I'm not necessarily against the idea of some supreme power or entity lying at the heart of the Universe, but I just don't buy the traditional God image. That said, I always respect the beliefs of others, because I understand that faith is very precious to many people. Oh - and if there is a God who created everything - he or she most definitely has a sense of humour. They would need one, to create something as weird and wonderful as the human race.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Have you ever experienced it?

No, I don't believe in love at first sight. I've experienced lust at first sight, and infatuation at first sight, but never love. For me, love is something that grows slowly from gradually getting to know someone.

Oh well, that's my Manic Monday for this week. Happy Monday!
