Thanks for the questions, Melanie!

***

(Purely whimsical supposition.  Suspend disbelief for a bit)
If you were a ghost, what location do you think you would haunt? Is it the same or different from the location you’d want to haunt?

I’d probably just stay home just like now. Although, I could probably go wherever I wanted to go. I’d not be stuck in one place, so I’d pick new locations all the time. I’d hang around spying on people, and maybe giving them a little scare now and then for fun.

What do you see in your mind’s eye when you close your eyes?  (I know somebody will answer ‘the inside of my eyelids”, so I took the temptation away by answering that first! 😜   Feel free to use that answer if you like though, or pass. It’s ALL good!)

I wrote a whole thing about this once upon a time, but of course I can’t find it now. So … It’s all black, then kinda gray, then some red, then some silver geometric shapes, like windows and squigglies, and ghosts, and sometimes I really think I can see ‘through’ my eyelids and see whatever is in front of me. Yep, I’ve tried this.

If a Semi (Big Rig in Americanese) (lorry or trolley over the pond) were about to smash into a crowd, and you could divert the vehicle’s course to hit only one person, would you?  How would you decide who would become the victim?

If I could divert the truck’s course, then I’d make it so it wouldn’t crash into anyone. And if I was that powerful, then I could probably levitate the truck to pass over everyone in the way.


GRATITUDE SECTION

Please feel free to share what makes you feel warm and cozy when the wind blows cold? Alternatively (for those on the other side of the world), what makes you feel relaxed and comfortable when the thermometer starts rising?

My heating pad is great for keeping warm on those cold days. Space heater is nice, too. Also my black shawl wrap is soft and cozy.

Here are this week’s questions from Melanie, and answers from me! Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

***

(Two ‘seasonal’ and two plain today)

What is the scariest game (board or on-line) you ever may have played?  … The only game that might be considered scary was the Ouija board. I thought it was fun … until one time my kids were playing with it and contacted a known spirit named Seth. That was scary and they never played it again. I wrote about that in  this post  … and this is the wiki information about Seth in  this post

What’s just ‘over the rainbow” for you? … Over, under, sideways, down … it’s all sky.

 

Do you have to watch something upbeat after watching a suspense or horror movie so you can go to sleep? … I love horror movies, and no I don’t have to read or watch something upbeat afterwards to get to sleep. There was one book that was so scary I couldn’t have it in the house. That was ‘The Demonologist’, by Ed and Lorraine Warren.

 

Is there intent behind every action? … Nope I don’t think so, not every single action. Sometimes you do something without even thinking anything about it, automatically. Big things we do think ahead to what we are doing, visualizing the outcome. But little actions such as maybe doodling on a piece of paper while talking on the phone, or drumming your fingers on the desk – well, those just happen with no special intent.

Here are the questions for the week on SYW. Thanks, Melanie, for hosting this fun challenge. 🙂

***

1. What’s your favorite way to exercise?  (if you do or don’t.  Exercising one’s mind is a valid answer IMHO, because that’s my favorite). … I walk from the bedroom, to the kitchen, to the living room, to the garage, and mustn’t forget the bathroom! I exercise my fingers by typing on the keyboard! 🙂

2. What’s more important to you – family or friends? ,,, This would be family. My family members are my friends.

3.  (a segue of sorts from last week’s SYW)..Have you ever voted for someone (in whatever venue – politics, contests, school elections) based solely on how they looked? … No I’d never do that.

4.  (silly one)  How could carousels be spiced up so they are more exciting? … It’s been many years since I’ve been on a carousel. I like them fine how they are. I always wanted, I mean really wanted one or more of those horses to take home. I’d still like to have one. They are so pretty! 🙂

Happy Monday! Thanks, Melanie, for bringing us the SYW questions each week! To join in and see other entries, just click the above link.

These fun questions today was suggested by a fellow blogger. His blog is called Evil Squirrel’s Nest, and there are lots of great photos of squirrels, great music, and fun, outrageous posts! You should go see for yourself by clicking Evil Squirrel.

***

Now here are the questions:

If you were to be cast as part of a comedy double act, which part would you play…. the straight man or the funny one, and why?

I’d probably be the funny one. That’s because I most times don’t understand jokes, and am confused about a lot of things people are talking about, so I answer with statements that reflect that, which comes out being weird and funny, I blurt out things and get my words tangled up – but not on purpose. Oh, here’s who’d I’d compare myself to with well known personalities (not in the way I look, obviously!) … Gracie Allen (wife of George Burns), Chrissy (Three’s Company), and Dory (the fish from the movie “Finding Dory”) hahaha

***

If you were to be reincarnated on Earth as any non-living/inanimate object of your choosing, what would you come back as and why?

Oooh  I think I’d be a computer! I’d know everything there is to know, I could help people find information, entertain them, and when I get sick with a virus or a breakdown of some kind, people are frantic taking me to the computer doctor to get me fixed as soon as possible, because they can’t do without me! 🙂

***

We all know how dogs mark their territory.  How do you mark your territory?

I mark my territory anywhere I go with paper … books, notebooks, post-it notes, scraps of paper I’ve wrote on, decorative paper for scrap books, and napkins … I’m messy so need lots and lots of napkins! 🙂

***

If you were on a trivia show and had to correctly answer ten questions in one subject to win a million dollars (or whatever currency is used in your locale), what would you hope the category would be?

The paranormal! I’d like to give my answers about ghosts, UFOs, aliens, ESP, and anything strange and unusual.

***

In democratic societies, do you believe that the right to vote is merely a privilege or a duty for all citizens?  This should not be thought of as an “Americans only” question.  ANY ONE is welcome to answer.

I’d say it’s a privilege to be able to vote on anything. A person shouldn’t be forced to vote, or vote a certain way. You should have the choice to vote if you want to, and if you don’t want to, then so be it. That said, I mostly think voting is a farce. Maybe in the little local city elections a voter has some say in a matter, but in national elections, one vote by one person counts as nothing. It’s just to pacify the population. Whatever outcome happens, it’s already been decided by the ruling elite. (this is all just my opinion!)

Thanks for the questions each week, Melanie!

***

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? … Probably not, as I normally don’t talk much. I write way more than I ever talk (except to myself). Then again, I don’t actually do much either. Maybe it’s about even.

What does the world need less of? … The world needs less hatred of many things, except wars. Everyone I think should hate wars and try to get along with others and put an end to wars.

Do you feel older or younger than your age? … Much younger

What is a cause you’ll always passionately support? … I don’t go around beating a drum about whatever cause comes along, or pledging money or time to anything. I’m not a joiner or a leader.

Do you believe in soul-mates?  (my definition of ‘soul mate’ is the IDEAL partner romantically).  … There are probably some couples that are wonderfully in tune and in every way are right for each other. Many more have found that special someone at some time in their lives. As for a true ‘soul-mate’ that has been chosen for you from the great beyond by whomever, to be united as a destined pair and that both realize it at first glance, and they are cosmically drawn to each other from wherever in the world they are, well, I doubt this has ever happened. … Except … it sure works great in books and fiction stories, doesn’t it! 🙂

What are three scents you like? … I like so many scents but to pick only three … Angel perfume, wood smoke, fresh baking bread.

What are some things that you might be considered too old to do, but that you enjoy? … Playing any kind of game with my grand-daughter, especially having pretend conversations and acting out stories and scenes with her little people toys and stuffed animals, making up silly voices for them all.

What is one food you absolutely refuse to share? … There isn’t any food I wouldn’t share. If someone wanted a bite of my food, I’d cut off a piece, or break some off for them. This reminds me of an episode of ‘Friends’ — Joey doesn’t share food!!! haha 🙂

Thanks for the questions, Melanie! 🙂

***

Can you parallel park (if you drive)?   If you don’t drive, can you still skip?

I used to could parallel park with no trouble. I haven’t tried it in years though, but I know how to do it and probably could do okay. Same with skipping – I used to could, but I’d probably fall down now.

Do you prefer early morning or late evening?  Or something in between?

I like early morning, before dawn. I like to see the sun rise in the hushed coolness of the day.

Do you like avocados?

I sure do like avocados – just plain or made into guacamole.

Is mind or matter more real?

Well, I would say matter is more real, as it right there in front of you, whether you see, feel, smell, or taste it. Your mind is your thinking of such things, and provides you with imagination.

and a bonus ‘deep’ question just because

Are people in this current generation less or more sensitive than people from past generations?

I think people of past generations were more truly sensitive about things. Currently it seems people are just acting sensitive about all kinds of things, because it’s the PC way to look at things, want to fit in with group think about whatever is the most recent topic of conversation.  Mostly, in my opinion, they are faking it, a false sense of outrage about even the most minute things. But then what do I know? I don’t even like being around other people most of the time.
