Saturday Blogger Interview with...

Most of my blogger friends that have been interviewed on Acting Balanced are people that I know only through blogging and have met online... not so with today's blogger... I've known him for over twenty years ... since before blogging was even a word... and I helped him set up his blog after he write several guest posts for me here on Acting Balanced.... Please welcome my hubby, Wayne from Touristic

1. Tell us a little bit about your blog:

Touristic is my online diary.  In it, I give my perspectives on the world and my place within it.  I do not do any reviews, giveaways or commercial posts on Touristic.  If I feel like selling out, that is why I write on Heather's blog.  

Here is the wording at the top of my blog:

My name is Wayne W. Smith and this blog contains my musings related to higher education, tourism and anything else that comes to mind. I invite you to scroll down and laugh where appropriate, cry when necessary but always remember to consider the source.

2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?

I started my blog in May 2008 but it was December 2009 when I started blogging regularly.  I started blogging as a way to connect with Heather.  It is a common interest that we share, therefore, since I love her, I love it.

3. Who is the person or group behind the blog?

Name: Wayne aka Heather's hubby.    
Age: Chronological 38, Physical 53, Mental 25
Weight: Depressing
Hair: Thinning with bits of grey and brown
Eye Colour (yes, I spelled colour correctly): Blue/Green
Personality - According to Jung (Myers Briggs) I am a 

Introvert(67%)  iNtuitive(100%)  iNtuitive  Thinking(12%)  Judging(89%)
  • You have distinctive preference of Introversion over Extraversion (67%)
  • You have strong preference of Intuition over Sensing (100%)
  • You have slight preference of Thinking over Feeling (12%)

For those of you unfamiliar with this test, I am one of the rarest personality types with only 2 to 4% of the population carrying similar traits.

4. What hobbies/interests do you have?

I love studying the human equation.  How do human relate and interaction with one another?  I love reading about relationships and how they evolve over time and space.  I am fascinated by observing and trying to understand how individuals and groups react to situations over time and space.

5. If you could invite 4 people (real or fictional, living or dead) to a dinner party, who would you invite and what would you serve?

Jung, Einstein, Confucius & discuss the nature of man in the universe.  

What would I serve: hot dogs...(seriously who cares?)

6. I can’t live without…

This is from a Monday's Listicles Post from about a month ago...
10. Gravity - Otherwise we'd be floating away and never be grounded in our lives.
9. Kinetic Energy - Soccer would not have the same kick without you.
8. Amino Acids - You were the goo that came together in the building blocks of life. Especially you, phenylalanine, valine, threonine, tryptophan, isoleucine, methionine,leucine, lysine, and histidine.
7. Quarks - Beyond a giving us a funny word to say and a great character on Star Trek DS9 - you are also one of the key building blocks to all that matters.
6. Nitrogen - While Nitrogen makes up about 80 per cent of the air we breath, but despite this the body does not absorb nitrogen directly from the air. Nitrogen is not one of the most abundant elements. It is nevertheless important to life because of its role in the chemical structure of proteins and deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA.5. Water - About 60% of you is me so, I should be thankful for you.
 4. Oxygen - It would be stuffy in here without you.
3. Hydrogen - Number 5 would not be possible without you
2. Carbon - Without you none of us would be here
1. Chocolate - Because all of this does not matter without you.
7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is…

I am really not that smart.  I just work hard and see the world through a slightly different perspective than most.

I actually think in pictures (really 3D models).  Written language is hard for me to comprehend (though I muddle my way through it).

8. Three of my favorite blogs to visit are (includue urls) : - I am obligated to say this (see Contract, Marriage) - She has a great Sundays in the City hop - Friday Fragments are one of my favourites - She has a really cool Pondering hop on Thursdays, I encourage you to check out.
