FRIENDLY FILL-INS 7/7/17

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. My favorite line from a film is ___________________.
  2. Other than blogs, a website I visit often is ________
  3. When I feel down, I ______________________________.
  4. If I could _____________, I would ___________________.

***

  1. My favorite line from a film is… hard to pick just one. We quote movie lines all the time, and even started a game for it, with us having character names from the movie, “Pulp Fiction”, and we’d get points for answering who said the quote from whatever movie someone put on the chalkboard. Here’s our board, but it’s pretty messy right now.

There are a couple of quotes we say almost every day.

“The dishes are done, man”, said by the actor who played Kenny, Keith Coogan, in the movie, “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead”. We say this pretty much any time we get finished washing the dishes here, only we don’t go shooting them. That might be fun, though!

***

This next quote is one we say a lot. It is, “All right, all right, all right”, from the movie, “Dazed and Confused”. The actor who says this is Matthew McConaughey, playing the part of Woodson. This is one of our most quotable movies, and we watch it a lot.

***

2.  Other than blogs, a website I visit often is … Face Book, and Twitter.

3.  When I feel down I … try to distract myself by listening to music, or reading and blogging some more. Lots of times I do these at the same time. I forget about whatever is getting me down or not feeling good, for a little while.

4.  If I could … actually teleport myself, I would … I think it would be so fun to go wherever and whenever in time and space that I’d want to. It would sure save on travel expenses, and I could be there in an instant. 🙂

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. A recurring dream I have is _____________________.
  2. Turn ______________ into ________________________.
  3. _____________________________ is driving me crazy!
  4. Lately, I have been _____________________________.

***

  1. It seems my recurring dreams are always on the creepy and scary side. There are lots I have had several times over the years. They are always the same. I have no idea why, what they mean, or what causes them to be replayed.  So many to choose from! … In this one I’m driving on a busy freeway, and I’m so nervous, because I know what will happen. I know the way I want to go, and all will be good, but taking a different road, that leads up and over the main road, will get me in trouble, lost, and scared to death. I only have a few seconds to decide which way to go. I try my best to go the safe way, but somehow I always end up on the scary road…every single time. (this may have to do with my bridge phobia)
  2. Turn straw into gold. Naw…that’s a fairy tale. It would be nice, but it’s just wishful thinking.
  3. Itching is driving me crazy! It’s so dry here, it makes us all itchy, no matter how much lotion we use.
  4. Lately, I have been planting some seeds in little pots. They have mostly already sprouted, within a couple of days.

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. A prop from a TV show or film I would like to own is _____________________________________.
  2. My oldest friendship is ___________________________.
  3. Whenever I ________________, I always _____________.
  4. The best ___________________ is ___________________.

***

  1. A prop from a TV show or film I would like to own is from the TV show “Roswell”. I’d like to own the Crash Down Diner. This is a diner set, where all the characters tend to meet up to discuss their adventures of the day.
  2. My oldest friendship is a woman who has been my friend since before we were even in school. Our mothers were friends before we were born. She lives in another city now, but we are still able to keep up with each other through emails and texting.
  3. Whenever I sleep, I always, or most always, dream fantastic dreams. I remember most of them, in detail, and have many, many journals that I have written the dreams down. Some are pages long, and some even have drawings I’ve done of the dreams.
  4. The best feeling in the world is having my grandchildren give me hugs, and say they love me. ❤

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. I have googled _________________________.
  2. I have__________________________ on Ebay.
  3. I think ________________________________.
  4. ______________ thinks __________________.

***

  1.  I have googled all kinds of things. Mostly I look up things to find out more information about a subject. Sometimes my first query doesn’t supply a good answer, so I re-phrase my question another way. Usually that works. One fun thing I like to google is the google street maps. It’s fun to have a look around at all kinds of places. Sometimes I google my own home address, except I try to find the same in another city or country. It’s so interesting to see the places you share an address with. Some I’ve seen for mine are beautiful neighborhoods, business areas, empty lots, and regular homes here and there. You should try it! … I’ve also googled myself and people I know. 🙂
  2. I have never thought much about Ebay. I don’t think I’ve ever even seen or looked up anything on there. I don’t want to buy anything from there, as I don’t even buy things from the internet, either.
  3. I think I fall down the rabbit hole when I google things. One thing leads to another thing to look up, and it takes me other places. Eventually I’ll get back to my original thought, but sometimes it takes a long time.
  4. We don’t really know what anyone else thinks, because we are not in their head. They could be saying one thing, but thinking something entirely different. I think it would be fun to have those thought bubbles above people’s heads, so we could see what they’re really thinking. haha! 🙂

Share Your World – May 15, 2017

***

It’s time for another Share Your World, with questions from Cee and answers from me!

***

How many languages do you you speak?

I speak English. I took 2 years of French in high school, and remember some of it, but don’t really have occasion to use it. I know a little Spanish, just because there are lots of Spanish speaking people here, and I hear it all the time. Then, I know a few sentences in German, Japanese, and Korean, because we lived in those countries for a little while. Oh, and for fun I know Pig Latin, and OP language. My name said in OP is… Bop-a-rop-bop-a-rop-a 🙂 This is kinda funny, because my grand-daughter’s name for me is Bop. She came up with that herself.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

I’m kind of in between books to read right now. I hate that I can’t settle on one. I keep trying this one and that one, and none gets me interested enough to continue. I have stacks of books to be read, too. The last book I finished in a few days was, “The New York Regional Morman Singles Halloween Dance”, a memoir  by Elna Baker. Before that I read the “Maze Runner” series, by Michael Grant, and the “Gone series, by James Dashner. Those were fantastic YA books. I’ve been reading, “Ready Player One”, by Ernest Cline, too, but just in small pieces. It’s really good, but I only am on page 103, after  a year.

Meanwhile, I read lots of great blogs! 🙂

I’m not watching anything. I barely watch any TV, but am waiting for Big Brother to come back on, I think the end of June. That’s all I really like to watch.

I listen to the Eagles Greatest Hits over and over. I listen to oldies radio in the mornings while doing my make-up, and in the truck. I’ve been listening to all the music videos I post on here!

I just got done eating a chef salad for lunch. I’m cooking a pot roast for supper. I’m on an obsession for eating Puff Corn. They taste like popcorn without the hulls, they’re crisp, but yet melt in your mouth. Yum!

 

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

The last photo I took with my phone was not suitable for here, so I took another one…:) This is the plant I got for Mother’s Day. Really cool. 🙂

What is your favorite time of day?

I like late at night best, but my timetable has changed, so now I’m up before dawn, about 4 a. m. I like when everything is dark and quiet, either early or late.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I had a nice Mother’s Day, with a long phone conversation with my daughter who lives out of state, and lunch with my daughter here in town. I received super cool gifts from everyone. This week there is nothing I know of planned, so I’ll just go with the flow, and see how it goes.

Wishing y’all a wonderful week ahead!

Here are the fill-ins:

1. My favorite cereal is _____________________________.

I like a lot of cereals, but mostly Crispix and Rice Chex. That’s what I usually buy for myself. That is for the cold type cereal. For hot cereal, I really like grits, and oatmeal. You know on the cereal boxes they have some sort of extra thing, like enter to win some contest? Well, I never entered one, but I did happen to get a box of Crispix, and inside was a notice that I’d won! It was a special promotion I guess. Anyway, what I won was a Microsoft Surface iPad. How cool is that? 🙂

2. My prom ___________________________________________.

I only went to my Jr. prom. I was on the planning/decorating committee, so we got to say how it would all look, plus decorating the place where it was held. I think it was at the American Legion Hall here in town. The theme was La’mour est Bleu, and it turned out really good. I didn’t like my prom photo though. I didn’t go to the Sr. prom. Some silly rule about no one could come unless they were enrolled in our school. My boyfriend/now husband wasn’t in school anymore, so we didn’t get to go. Bah!

Here’s some photos and the theme song for our prom.

***

3. The _________ thing about __________ is ___________.

The ‘best’ thing about ‘yard sales/flea markets’ is ‘never knowing what you will find, and then coming across something that is the best thing ever! haha. I love finding those treasures (to me). One of the best finds I found were these really old, dare I say vintage, scrapbooks. There were 12 of them, they were huge, and they were stuffed full of cards, letters, & photos. And…each only cost one dollar! We crammed them all into a little car, and took up all the room, but we kept going to the sales. 🙂

 

4. I cannot help _____________, but __________________.

I cannot help ‘myself’, but ‘I have to look up at the stars every night’. Ever since I was little I’ve done this, dreaming of other worlds, aliens, UFOs. There is something about the night sky that just draws me to it. My family jokes that maybe I am an alien, and someday my ‘real’ family will come back for me! haha

Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

I drink coffee and iced tea all day. In between, I drink bottled water.

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 

I have never liked sports of any kind.

If you could be given any gift what would it be?

Well, lots of money…tax free, of course. Then, I could buy whatever I wanted, and give gifts to all the family, too. I like giving gifts more than getting them.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?

I don’t have trouble getting to sleep. I go to sleep at a moment’s notice, or really I don’t even notice I’ve fallen asleep, until I wake up. I doze off even in the middle of typing my posts, then wake up and keep typing where I left off. I think I may have a touch of narcolepsy. It runs in the family.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Well, every day is the same ‘ol, same ‘ol around here. Nothing special happened last week, and I imagine it will be the same coming up. One thing I’m not grateful for is that my favorite thrift shop closed down. My daughter and I went over there, looking forward to shopping, and the place was empty. It was permanently closed, not just moved to another location. Boo-hoo. We did go to a couple of other thrift stores, and found a few things to buy, but it just wasn’t the same, at all.

I’m grateful my computer is working good (knock wood), and I get to read so many good blog posts, and have little conversations with all of you fantastic, fun, and creative bloggers out there! 🙂

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?

I like to use a pen or a marker. I like the idea of using a pencil, but you have to keep sharpening it!

Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?

I’d rather be a singer. I can’t sing a tune at all, now, so it would be amazing if one day I woke up and could!

If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?

Never been on a debate team. I do like having conversations about ghosts, UFO/Aliens, and conspiracy theories. I could debate ‘for’ all these for a long time.

What are you a “natural” at doing?

I’d say I’m a natural (no formal training) at writing. I’ve always found something to write about from the earliest time, and not saying it’s great, but it comes easy for me.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

We had a nice Easter weekend with family, the weather was just right, an no one was sick. This week coming up…we’ll just have to wait to see what it brings.

Here are the fill-ins:

1. An Easter (or Passover) tradition I have is ______________.

When we were kids, we always had a new outfit to wear to church. Sometimes we even got a little hat. We’d get together with family for lunch, and then with our cousins, we’d have the Easter Egg Hunt out in the yard.

 

2. My favorite flavor of ice cream is _____________.

My favorite ice cream flavor is plain vanilla, or sweet cream. I like other kinds, too. I really like frozen yogurt a lot, especially banana flavor, or just the original sweet/tart one. I like toppings on the Fro-yo, but not on ice cream.

 

3. One of my favorite Easter/Passover memories is _____________________.

Not my favorite memory, but it’s funny now, was when I was a kid. Well, an older kid. We had the usual egg hunt with the cousins, but it was decided the ‘younger’ kids would get to go hunt ahead of the ‘older’ kids. I threw a fit, as I thought it was so unfair, that the little kids would get all the eggs. I was crying, all red faced, and ugly, and wouldn’t you know it…my dad was taking home movies of the day. Yep, that occasion is forever captured on home movie film to this day…me still blubbering, and in my cute Easter outfit, as we ‘older’ kids were finally let out to find the eggs. haha!

 

4. My favorite Spring flower is _____________________.

My favorite flower of spring is the Iris.
