On This Day… musings on a 2009 “interview”

So back in 2009, there was a meme going around that was something like this:

1 -- Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 -- I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 -- You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 -- You'll include this explanation.
5 -- You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.​​

I loved this meme.  I mean, no surprise: it’s essentially talking about yourself a lot. :-)

So I was looking for something interesting I’d posted on 2/12 in some past year, and I found this.  The other questions don’t interest me so much (one of them is “Caw? Mew.”), but these two caught my attention. 

3. If you had the opportunity presented to you would you publish your cali game setting and/or your blog writing? Would you use a pen name?
Hells, yeah, to all.

4. What sort of physical/mental disorder scares you the most?

​So, easy one first, I’m not sure I’d publish Tír na Cali now. Mostly because, while it’s a very very fun setting, it is, well, it’s not great worldbuilding at all.  And let’s be honest, that’s because it’s foremost a kink setting.  Which makes for some fun one-on-one roleplay, but… not so much for a great worldbuilding setting. 

My blog writing?  Certainly.  I think this was before I had even started publishing Addergoole, or if not before, then very soon into it.  I mean, I would let everyone read everything forever, especially for money, given the chance.  I like being read. 

(go back to liking the attention of talking about yourself.)

But Cali?  Well.  Not without a complete rehaul. 

That other one… in 2009, I was between “well, maybe, wait and see” and “definitely not” on MS.  Which just shows how interesting this roller-coaster has been, since I’m now both on “yep, here’s some meds” and “…not really that terrified.”

To be honest, dementia terrifies me the most now.  But maybe it’s the unknown. 

...Let’s go back to talking about Tír na Cali.  Being a slave/kink setting, it’s clearly not everyone’s cup of tea.  But on the other hand, it DOES have portions of a world book already created.
