I got a trainer last year about 5 months before I moved. Best thing I ever did for myself. I use both now and I can really tell the difference in accessory muscle use with free weights. Having a trainer was a game changer. Had to learn how to convert LBs to KGs…it kind of bugs me that it never comes out to even amount
Rather lose my wallet since I don’t keep any cards in it anyway. Not sure why I even carry it come to think of it, lol
When relatives visit: prefer they stay with you or in a hotel
Edit: trainer was second best thing I did for myself. Quitting smoking the first best thing…
It certainly would depend on the relative . I would want my nieces, nephew, or cousins' children to stay with me. Some others though a hotel. To be safe, I'll say hotel.
I guess I should look at trying free weights again, at least the small ones I have in my apartment.
I don't carry a wallet since COVID. I've lost quite a few credit cards while jogging. Carelessness, they get stuck to my phone and drop.
If you were stranded on a desert island, would you want things to make life easier (stove, A/C) or entertainment (books, movies)
Yea, give the weights a go! Doesn’t have to be heavy. Sit and do some curls or something with them whilst watching a movie or reading.
Do you put your cards into a digital wallet on your phone? It’s quite convenient. I think you are an Android man, right? If so, they must have something similar to Apple Pay….?
Oh, give me books and movies on that Island. I can always take a dip to cool off and can fashion some sort of oven/fire thingy to cook with probably. Though I would appreciate a lighter!
Same island stranded: with your best buddy you like to hang out with or with some gal that you don’t know well and find a bit irritating, although also attractive…
The gal, I guess either would become irritating after a while. As would I.
This island has a small boat. It seems safe. Do you wait on the island to be rescued, or paddle to another island you see in the distance?
I don't use a digital wallet. I had a card on Google Wallet years ago. It was discontinued. It was not widely accepted at that time so I couldn't not carry a card. It has been brought back, so maybe I'll try it again. It popped up a month ago with voter registration. So, NYS registration ID is saved to it. Though ID is not required.
So does Google wallet just work the same as Apple Pay? I guess I could Google it… Well, I think if you have a boat there that looks sturdy, any proper Sagittarius is gonna give it a go so I’d say yes, I’d explore the other island.
On the next island: you find a well kept but deserted rather opulent looking home that seems to not be inhabited, but also like they haven’t been gone long…do you break into it or not?
I do, I would knock first, check for guard dogs, but breaking would be next.
I think Wallet is the same. Google Wallet merged with Android Pay and become Google Pay. I think it was just renamed. I'll try it again. Though my local bar and diner don't take it. They only started accepting credit cards during COVID.
You find an isolated civilization behind the opulent home. They have some useful knowledge that would help all of humanity. However, exposing them might harm them. Do you tell the world about them?
Ok, so I thought deeply about this one. No. I wouldn’t expose them. History repeats itself because nobody listens the first time. History shows that time and again, beautiful cultures and civilizations are destroyed for the “good of mankind”and it doesn’t seem to have brought us incredibly far. We are just as destructive as ever. This is the kind of conversation that I could likely expound on for a few hours, so I’ll leave it at that , knowing that it isn’t my lot in life to change the trajectory mankind is on… my role is small and in the small day to day encounters, so their secrets are safe with me if I’m ever rescued.
If you use Google wallet then you will have all you need in one pocket . Except for your bar and diner though. I love that they are old school.
In this house, on the table, you see a small bottle of liquid that says “Drink Me”. Do you drink it or leave it alone?
I don't drink without any other guidance. I guess I am less daring than Alice.
You have been in the house a while and are homesick. You go through a mirror and find a magical world. The Queen of Hearts says she can send you home right away, or you can explore for a month, then she can send you home, unless she forgets or beheads you. Do you leave immediately or wait?
I downloaded Google and I had it already as that is what the Elections Board uses. That is NYC, my vaccine card is in a distinct NYS wallet. Maryland is the first state to allow your license to be on your phone. Some concern with that because if you provide it to a police officer, they take it back to their car and can see any apps or texts. I guess they can see if you were texting while driving. Though I don't drive so no worries for me.
Oh I’m gonna wait and explore for the month of course! Magical World sounds fabulous.
Before you explore or go home, do you either go back for the woman you left on the other island or leave without her?
Oh…yea, no. I’m not giving my phone up to an officer. Not because I text and drive, I don’t except for having Siri do it by voice. Because I don’t give my phone to anyone I don’t know. The days of total trust in police for me are gone. Dated a few too many in years past I guess , and that’s the least of my reasons… Actually, I went out with a Lisboa Polícia. He was so curious about my perspective on things in the US concerning Police. I did my best to give what I thought was a balanced view. I kind of feel if I ever get pulled over in the US they owe me one for that, .
What do you do with the Elections Boards on your phone? Is a NYS wallet a government issue kind of thing?
