If you could own a mythical creature (unicorn, phoenix, etc.), which one would you pick? (A nod to the soon ending 2021 A-Z Blogging Challenge, my topic this year “Mythical Creatures”) 

I would have the creature known as Bastet. This is an Egyptian cat goddess who was known for her protection over all cats and for watching over the household.

From a Wiki article:

Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women’s secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children.

What was the last TV show you binge-watched?   If you don’t watch TV (congratulations by the way) what’s the last thing you binged ON?

I don’t know if you’d call it bingeing or not, as we just have the regular cable type stations and whatever and however many episodes they put on is what we watch until they stop. There are a few old ones like Friends, 3s Company, Andy Griffith, & Everybody Loves Raymond that we watch like this. We don’t watch anything new.

What’s your most prized possession and why?

Well, the usual like family, health, and home of course. Then there’s things like phone, computer, & TV. I’m thinking this question is asking for a certain one item? ummm … yeah … I have lots of ‘stuff’ and I can’t think of any that is more prized over another. Sure I have many things from my relatives that have passed on, which I treasure because it brings back good memories. Knick-Knacks, dishes, furniture, cards & letters, photos … can’t pick just one thing.

If you had the time and inclination, what would you volunteer for?

Petting cats

Do you think that humans will ever be able to live together in harmony?

No

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time? … Well, if it was something I didn’t want even one of then it would be terrible if I had to take two of them. Could be whatever I didn’t want two of would be something someone else would love to have. So, I don’t know. Maybe a container of worms?

Have you ever gotten a really bad haircut?  Do share! … Yes, many times, and that’s why I never get my hair cut any more. The worst was twice, at two different places years apart, I just wanted a trim of the ends, and came away with my hair so short I had to buy a wig to cover up the awfulness until my hair grew again.

Isn’t Disney Land and Disney World (and all the variants) just a people trap operated by a mouse? … haha That’s so funny and I can see it being true. I’ve never been or even wanted to go to these places.

What if Batman got bitten by a vampire?   What would happen?  He’d turn into a vampire bat?

What do you want your final words to be if you could choose? … “I’ll be back…”

Here are this weeks new questions for SYW from Melanie! Thanks! Join in and read other entries by clicking the above link. It’s fun. 🙂

***

What is knowledge?  … Knowledge is if you know something – anything, and I guess if you’re alive you know some things. Oh, isn’t that what the Scarecrow of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ wanted, and he got a diploma or something saying he had knowledge?

How do you define consciousness (self awareness)? … Well, if you are awake you are conscious. If you’re asleep or get knocked out you are unconscious and you aren’t aware of anything, except maybe you’re dreaming!

Is it possible to prove that other people besides yourself have consciousness? … hahaha well you can just look at them and tell if they are awake or not. Guess that would prove it.

Would you be able to tell if time had been altered in some way? … I think I would be able to. We just had Daylight Savings Time the other day, and yep, time was altered and I noticed it.

Do you like potato chips (they’re called ‘crisps’ in Europe I believe)? … I really do like potato chips of any kind. I’ve tried to eat ‘just one’ before and it can’t be done.  🙂

If not now, then when? … Later when I get ‘a round tuit’. 🙂

Can you describe your life in a six-word sentence? … I don’t know … Old lady that loves all cats? haha 🙂

Do you remember that thing people used to say, about how you swallow eight spiders a year while you sleep? It’s not true, but do you think you’ve ever swallowed any? What bug do you think you’ve eaten the most of by accident? … I’m pretty sure I’ve swallowed a gnat or two. Sometimes they drown in my coffee. I try to pick them out, though. I almost ate a roach one time, but caught it before I did. It was frozen in a pot pie. I’ve been suspicious of those ever since.

What’s the best approach to resolving conflict? … Walk away – far far away. By the time you get back hopefully the conflict will have been forgotten.
