    Default are you living haphazardly enough?

    haphazardly means approaching life with a little more splish-splash. recently I needed to be somewhere fast so I ran a couple of red lights and do not enter signs (why do towing places have to close at 6pm?)...anyway, I guess I saw it as some kind of big shake up and now I need to be more haphazard in more areas of my life..

    do you see yourself living haphazardly enough? why/why not?

    By running those red lights and driving the wrong way on a one way street you were potentially endangering the lives of others. Please pour gravy on yourself and step into the wolverine cage at the zoo at your earliest convenience.

    Car driving, eh?
    America.

    There is another America.
    New York City.
    Ever saw the film Midnight Cowboy?
    With Dustin Hoffman of course,

    I never got the licence. Because of the motor deficiency.
    My father had the licence for a short while. They took it away from him.

    Hence my father remained a pedestrian all his life.
    He used to wait till the pedestrian lights turned red and only then cross the road.
    He loved to walk in front of the cars.
    They had to stop.
    And then he stopped, too.

    I try really hard not to live haphazardly. Unfortunately I still am not very good at it, so I manage to look like I'm living haphazardly anyway.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Umm...if it involves risk, chance, uncertainties, anxiety, I am sure do everything I can to avoid it, if that fails then to plan for it, and make a back-up plan, and a plan if that back-up falls through...what can I say? I learned well from my father (ISTJ).

    I would say that I'm living it haphazardly enough for my tastes. Meaning almost not at all.

    But I do occasionally leave cola cans out for a few days before picking them up, have several open books laying around ready to reference, and leave the side off of a computer because of ventilation problems. Once, I ran out of monitors, so I hooked up a computer to a television set as a display (but the picture was so bad I had to use magnifier to read most text) Does that count?

    I don't always look when crossing the street and some times play chicken with a car while crossing. It's such a rush to be walking at leisurely pace to look up and their's a bus so you dart rest of the way across the street. Good times.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
