    By and large,yes.

    TNP prefers cocktails to either.

    No. I find it difficult to slowly sip any liquid, except maybe a really delicious big red wine. At least I can drink beer all day and not end up hammered.

    But I do prefer cocktails to ether, AFAIK.

    TNP has had an actual hangover in the past decade.

    Nope, not since college.

    TNP prefers mornings to evenings.

    Pretty much, usually. Most days it's just waiting until bedtime until the Benadryl/diphenhydramine is consumed and sleep ensues about 1.5 hours after. It may seem sick to some hippie types, but I really approve of having a pill to go to sleep. I care too much about my dental hygiene to get into anything stronger than about twelve cups of coffee in the morniing, but, whatever.

    TNP has been publicly shamed about something her or she does or did recently. No examples given, just use your imagination.

    Hmm. No, I don't think so.

    TNP prefers books to audiobooks.

    Sure do. In fact, I rarely listen to any kind of music (never audiobooks or radio!) except in the car, or when watching movies/TV. Or if I've been drinking I'll play some choice tunes at home via the computer or fire up the CD player/turntable.

    TNP is still glad to have quite a nice collection of cassette tapes and, shockingly, listens to them sometimes.

    Yes, I still have a few dozen, although it's been a year or three since I last listened to one.

    TNP prefers summer to winter.

    Yep. I guess you could be tied to an anthill in the middle of a desert and die from that sun stuff, and dying of hypothermia sounds like more fun, but there are some options in the summer. Like not being out in the sun, and migrating towards drinking water.

    TNP thinks a good lesson to be learned from dealing with a large company's HR is: don't get involved unless. That is, unless you understand just how much paperwork you want to be involved in, and unless you're able to formulate direct, even prescient questions about what are all the possible continuations of each document. In advance, in writing. And since it is unlikely that the company's private, internal strategies will be revealed to an outsider, it's not unlike getting involved with similarly unpredictable, but powerful figures, which you might find in the movies or in real life or in your imagination.

    Probably good advice, yes.

    TNP would rather deal with HR than the CEO.
