Time for another set of questions from Melanie and Roger for SYW. The first set is about Harry Potter type things, and the last ones are regular. Thanks!

  1. Many local regions, especially rural areas where I live, have haunted houses. Have you ever spent the night in a house that was supposedly haunted? Anything โ€˜strangeโ€ happen?

Well yes, I have spent the night in a haunted house. Every house I’ve lived in has been haunted. I am a ghost, after all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Strange things are always happening.

  1. The Quidditch Cup (riding broomsticks while chasing a small ball) was a huge sporting event in the land of Hogwarts. What is the largest sporting event (or concert, etc.) that you have ever attended?

Hmmm, I didn’t count how many people were in attendance, but I’ve been to large concerts, and also a college football game or two in the past.

  1. When you go for a swim, do you prefer an ocean, the seaside lakes, or a pool?

I don’t ever go for a swim. I used to when I was a kid, but only in a nice pool. I’d never ever want to get in the water of a lake, because of the horrible fish.

  1. Ron Weasley received a horrid robe to wear as formal wear to the Christmas dance at Hogwarts. Tell about the most โ€˜ghastlyโ€™ fashion statement that you have ever made.

I hope I’ve never worn anything ghastly!

Muggle Questions (from Melanie):

What is the last song you sang along to?

Probably the song I used for Song Lyric Sunday yesterday, which was, “Poison”, by Alice Cooper.

What was your scariest nightmare about?

Tornadoes always tornadoes after being in the F5 tornado back in 1970. I had nightmares about that for years, and even now in the springtime I’ll have another one.

What food do you crave most often?

Popcorn and nuts. I can’t eat these any more because of a medical condition, so I crave them all the time.

Whatโ€™s your grossest bug story?

Bug story? I like bugs so really they don’t gross me out. Well, how about this one – I kept an insulated jug of water by the sink for use at night. It had a straw. So, I take a big sip, and feel something squirmy in my mouth. I spit it out and it was a fairly large spider! Yuck! He was okay, and I survived.


Thanks for visiting! Peace โ˜ฎ๏ธ

    • Thanks, Priscilla!
      Knock wood we never have another tornado like that one, though we do have the threat of them especially in the spring.
      I don’t know what that spider thought it was doing climbing down into the straw, but I’ll bet he was just as surprised as I was! haha ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. I once had a stink bug land in my food, had to through my dinner away. And once, as I was driving to a funeral I had a creepy looking bug crawling up my leg. Normally bugs don’t creep me out, but that day I was wearing a dress…didn’t want it crawling up my dress. I was driving! Pulled the car over and jumped out of the car in my bare feet! I didn’t get back in until it was found and let out of the car. It was like two inches long!! It may have been a wheel bug, but I’m not sure.


    • Thanks, Holly! Ewww a stink bug in your food! Now that’s pretty gross! I can imagine you not wanting a big bug crawling up your dress. I had to look up what a wheel bug was – sounds pretty ugly and kind of big, too. That would be creepy! Glad you didn’t have a wreck trying to get away from it. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Thanks Barbara for Sharing Your World! I’d have probably thrown that cup and straw away, but I’m an arachnophobe. Spiders. Brrrrr. “Eating” a spider? Worst thing EVER, the spider is lucky you are a compassionate soul! I’d forgotten…. you ARE a ghost! We’ll have to quiz you sometime about life on the other side! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Heh.


    • Thanks, Melanie! It was pretty icky to have a spider in my mouth! I’ve since stopped using that cup and straw, and now just have a bottle of water with a cap on it.
      heh heh – it’s just fun saying I’m a ghost because that’s my name on here, plus I’ve told lots of my ghost stories. For real though I’ve had lots of strange things happen I blame on ghosts, but they don’t scare me at all.
      Thanks for the fun questions! ๐Ÿ™‚
