FRIENDLY FILL – INS 

https://mcguffysreader.blogspot.com/

***

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.

Time for another Share Your World, with questions from Cee, and answers from me! To join in the fun, and to see other entries, just click the link above.

***

Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.

Well, besides walking across America, swimming the English Channel, running with the bulls in Pamplona, and biking in the Tour de France, I’d say … no.

Name one thing not many people know about you.

Y’all know everything about me already, because I love answering Cee’s questions!

What is your favorite flower?

The ones that I grow from seed, that actually sprout and make a flower.

Things I want to have in my home (paintings, hot tubs, book cases, big screen tv etc)

Instead of something in the house, how about a whole different kind of house? I always liked the look of an adobe type, surrounding a courtyard. It would have all kinds of plants, with flowers, and cactus, and a little waterfall/fountain. I’d have some cool critters out there, like lizards, parrots, and some cats, and a dog. They’d all get along just fine.

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

Grateful I get to do pretty much whatever I want every day, like blogging, reading, taking photos. Happy to be able to be silly when I feel like it,too! 🙂

Wishing y’all  fun rest of the week! xo

Here are the fill-ins:

I don’t understand why ______________ is so popular.

I don’t read magazines, but I know they are popular forms of entertainment. To me they are just a lot of celebrity gossip, or ads for clothes and cosmetics. Both are boring to me. Give me a whole book to read, and I’ll be happy.

My in case of emergency person is_________________.

My emergency people are my husband and daughter.

There is so much _________________________________!

There is so much advertising on television, that I hardly ever watch anything. It’s either that or fake news, and politics, which I don’t like to listen to.

I’d be lost without my family. Then, I’d not like to be without my books, computer, or phone/camera.

Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?

I wasn’t named after anyone, first or middle name.

Music or silence while working?

Either one. Mostly the TV is on some boring show, and I have to ignore it, as it’s right by my desk here. If I ever get a chance, I turn it on mute. Sometimes I’ll put on ‘my’ kind of music, sometimes I just enjoy the silence for awhile.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

Are you asking where would the special places be, or what would be the special possessions? From the list of no-nos, I don’t have a lot of other things that would be special, and would need a special place to keep them. My writing notebooks would be a major one, though, and I keep most of them in a metal file cabinet. I need a larger one though, because they don’t all fit in the one. I keep my inexpensive jewelry in several jewelry boxes. Would medicines be a special possession? I keep mine in a kitchen cabinet.

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

I will never…get in a lake on purpose, parachute from a plane, be intentionally mean to a person or animal

I will never like… fish, sports, bullys, sickness, wars

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

Well, in my head I’m usually thinking I’m 19 or so. Some days I feel like 100.

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?

I know where it is at the moment, but usually I don’t have any idea where it is. It seldom rains here, so we almost never need one for that. I have used it to block the sun, though.

Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?

I never get energized by being with people. I enjoy myself for a little while, while out and about, but then I have to be mostly alone, doing quiet things.

Name three things you and your spouse, partner or best friend  to have in common.

Three things? Music of all kinds, reading, eating Mexican food.

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

Can’t even remember what happened last week. Was it then, the computer went out and had to be repaired? Then a couple of days ago, we switched cable providers, so was off-line while that was going on. Wasn’t really grateful for either of those happening, but grateful they all got fixed and straightened out. Looking forward to tonight, as we are expecting thunderstorms. I love them, and the rain is much needed. 🙂
