Today's Question:

Usually, what time do you eat...I eat when I feel like it. I just thought of the famous quote that "Paleface needs watch to know when hungry". Not this paleface. Retirement doesn't have a schedule for me.

Breakfast?
Lunch?
Dinner?

Bonus Question:

The next time I go out to eat at Hooters I think I might just order Three Mile Island Wings.

Extra Question:

On average, about how many hours of sleep do you get per night?Now this would take a computer to figure out. I guess it all depends on how late I play on CD at night or into the morning. It might be a few or a lot.

“Yes or No” Question:

Can you whistle?No good at all.

Music Question:

What were some of your favorite songs by The Pointer Sisters?Don't even know them.

“Just for Fun!”

How many direct messages do you have right now total? 3273

“Because I'm Interested” Question:

How often do you visit the library? Not since I stopped working at the college. Been quite a few years.

Thanks for hosting, Suncoast Guy! Nice job on the questions, too!

Today's Question:

Usually, what time do you eat...

Breakfast?
Weekdays, around 6:30. Saturdays and Sundays, somewhat later than that.
Lunch? Weekdays, whenever I get a moment to run to the fridge in the breakroom and pull out the bowl of leftovers to warm up, which can be anywhere from about noon to 4:00 pm, depending on how busy the day is. On weekends, I usually don't eat lunch.
Dinner? On weekdays, I generally eat supper 30 to 45 minutes after getting home from work, which can be anywhere from 6:30 to 9:30 depending on how busy I am. On weekends, it's usually around 7 or so.

Bonus Question:

The next time I go out to eat at
Daisy Cafe I think I might just order their unbelievably delicious fried egg sandwich. Daisy's egg sandwich is made with grilled rosemary bread (made on the premises), a schmear of cream cheese, a few slivers of red onion, a couple of strips of crisp bacon, a pair of perfectly over-easy eggs and a sprinkle of cilantro. That is unquestionably my favorite dish that they serve.

Extra Question:

On average, about how many hours of sleep do you get per night?


Most weeknights, it's four or five. Friday and Saturday nights are wonderful - I have time for up to seven or eight hours of sleep.

“Yes or No” Question:

Can you whistle?


Nope.

Music Question:

What were some of your favorite songs by The Pointer Sisters?


I don't know who they are or what music they performed.

“Just for Fun!”

How many direct messages do you have right now total?


314 in the inbox, 197 in my sent messages.

“Because I'm Interested” Question:

How often do you visit the library?


Not nearly as often as I'd like. If the day ever comes that I can afford to retire, this is high on my list of planned activities that I'll be resuming.

I typically eat breakfast b/t 3:30 AM- 11:30AM; Lunch 1:30-4PM; Dinner before 7PM. The next time I go to Chili's I just may order the peppercorn cheeseburger with mushrooms and extra tomato. On the average I think I get about 4.5 hours of sleep a night. I can whistle and "We Are Fam-ily" is the only song I can think of by the Pointer Sisters and I like it too. I have no direct messages right now, so if anyone wants to DM me I am available. I don't visit the library often unless I have a research project. Well Everyone have a Super terrific Sunday SCG u r rocking on the Question and ur timing in alright!
