Q & A

What’s something you really resent paying for?   … I know we have to pay our bills like electric and water, and any credit card amounts, but I sure hate seeing so much of our money going out.

 What was the most unsettling film you’ve seen? … Unsettling? Like scary, or just a boring one? I really can’t come up with a name of any. I love scary movies of all kinds, and if there is a boring movie part I have no problem falling asleep. haha

Do you judge people?  … I don’t think I judge people at all.

Finish this sentence:  “Back in my day, we…”?  … Back in my day, we kids were free to run all around the neighborhood with our friends, as much as we liked, just as long as we were home by dark.

The Questions & My Answers

  • I asked this on an award thingie I was nominated for, and I got such interesting responses, I thought I’d ask it on Share Your World too:  Do you have a favorite kind of tree?

I like all kinds of trees. I think the weeping willow tree is very pretty, and I like the smell of pine trees. The mimosa tree is really nice with it’s delicate pink flowers, too.

  • What bridges are you happy you burned?

Guess I’ve never burned a bridge. I don’t go setting fires around them. I do have some posts about bridges which I might re post again sometime or other. Bridges scare me!

  • Would you sacrifice yourself (die) for a stranger?

No, not normally, but if it was my family member I would.

  • How have your priorities changed since the C-19 virus took over?

Nothing much has changed with us because of the virus. The Mr. goes to the grocery store & uses a mask. I don’t go anywhere, which isn’t that unusual for me on a normal time. If I ever do go somewhere again, I will be leery of every place and every person.

Here are the new questions for SYW for last week and this week. Thanks so much, Melanie!

***

On A Scale Of 1-10, How Strict Were Your Parents?

I would say a 5

What Wastes The Most Time In Your Day To Day Life?

I have all day to do whatever I want to do. I don’t consider it wasted, even if I’m just sitting & thinking.

Do They Bury People With Their Braces* On?   (* “braces” in this scenario are those metal bits they put on people to straighten their teeth.   I realize “braces” are also some item of clothing that I believe men wear to keep their socks up or something.  I’m talking about the teeth option).

What a weird question! I would suppose the surviving family would determine if the teeth braces should stay on or come off. Since most don’t really like having them on, I’d say take them off.

Why Does A Round Pizza Come In A Square Box?

It’s easier to stack the boxes on the shelves? Or maybe it’s easier to make a square box than a round one?

***

https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2020/03/30/share-your-world-03-30-2020/

Pancakes, waffles or French Toast as your breakfast favorite? 

I like each of these equally, but we don’t have them very often.

Do you think a person’s name influences the person they become?

Not really. You are what you are, and act how you act, whatever your name is. I’ve heard there have been studies that show some people with so called ‘good’ names get better jobs? Don’t know if that’s true. It’s interesting to think people’s last name may have began from what occupation they had, such as a baker becoming Baker, and so on.

Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?

It would be better if we heard more good news.

Is math something that humans created or something we discovered? Is looking at reality mathematically an accurate representation of how things work?

It was probably discovered that certain amounts of items added to some more items, made a larger number? I really don’t know and can barely even do basic math.

This week’s questions from Melanie! Join in and also see other entries – click the above link.

***

Are you a sweet, sour, tangy or other type of person?  Take that as you will! 😉

Probably sweet

Does the whole coronavirus phenomenon worry you?  Or are you more a “meh – it’s just another severe flu scare” type of person?

It worries me some, so we take a few more precautions of what we always do anyway. We’ve always avoided people who were sick, and used hand sanitizers, and masks, just because of some family members that we don’t want to spread germs to. So not really much different than usual. I’m sure I’m in the group that it would be bad to catch it, and seeing I just spent quite a few days in the hospital recently for regular flu, I can’t afford to catch something else.

When was the last time you were snooping, and found something you wish you hadn’t?

Sorry, not sorry – I love to snoop anywhere. Never found anything I wished I hadn’t though, just interesting stuff.

What’s the most pleasant sounding accent in your personal opinion?   Everyone has a pleasing accent to someone! 

I like hearing all kinds of accents. British always sounds nice. Funny how everyone has a different accent from wherever they are from, yet we can’t really hear our own. I know mine is an awful drawling Texas accent, but sounds normal to me.

Questions for SYW:

Can you bake a cake?   (credit for this question goes to Di, who asked it on her post 

https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/02/29/its-a-mystery/

recently.   Thanks Di! After last week’s SYW, we needed a little bit of sweet and light!)

What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better?

When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not?

What’s something your family would be surprised to learn about you?

***

My answers are:

# yes, I can bake cakes of all kinds. These can be using a recipe with all ingredients, or from a mix box. I can do my own bakery icing, too, and have taken a cake decorating course/class, which was lots of fun learning how to use all the decorating tips to make fancy things on the cakes.

# talking to my grandkids always will make me smile and laugh.

# yes, as far as I remember I ate crusts on my bread. Even now, that is my favorite part.

# not much new for the family to know about me. They already know I have a blog, and that I write stuff all the time, and always have. They know I’m most of the time silly, and like laughing at the absurdity of it all. They know I like all things spooky, too.

Here’s the newest set of questions that Melanie has us thinking about. Join in and also see other entries by clicking the above link. Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

***

When was the last time you tried something new?

I can’t remember, as we do the same things all the time … stay at home, and go to the grocery store. Nothing new at all.

If you were forced to eliminate every physical possession from your life with the exception of what could fit into a single backpack, what would you put in it?

Is this like a survival kit kind of deal? Well, I’d have all my medicines, a flashlight & batteries, matches & lighters, snacks like peanut butter crackers, and that milk that doesn’t need to be refrigerated. A battery or solar radio, my phone, my kindle (and power cords – hopefully there will be power?), duct tape, first aid kit, scissors,  change of clothes, and whatever else I can cram in there.

What simple fact do you wish more people understood?

That you should be wary of any so called ‘facts’, because sometimes they are not true.

What food item do you go through fastest in your house?  (credit to Sandmanjazz)

Milk, bread, & eggs.

***

The questions:

Do dogs ‘talk’ (communicate) with their own species?

Sure they do. I know when listening to the dogs in the neighborhood, one will start ‘barking/saying’ something, and others will chime in with their own thoughts about what’s happening. They communicate with us, too. Be still and quiet, open your mind to whatever message you get when you are with your dog (or cat). It’s strange, but true.


Have you ever had to work on Christmas Day?

No, I never had to work on Christmas Day, except here at home.

If someone gifts you something that you immediately loathe, do you pretend to really like it anyway or are you brutally honest about your opinion?

I thank the person for the gift. Why would you want to hurt someone’s feelings by disparaging a gift given with good intentions.

Which popular drink, found during the Christmas season most often, is called “milk punch?”

I’d say it is eggnog because it’s made with milk. I’ve read some others that say there is a difference, though.

How many ghosts show up during “A Christmas Carol?” 

I always thought there were three – past/present/future, but some say there were four. I never read that book, but I might have seen the movie long ago.

Are you all about the holly and jolly or more about remembering the alleged ‘true’ meaning of Christmas?    

I’d say I’m a little of both. I do like the fun and the decorations and gifts, but also remember why we are celebrating according to some religious traditions.

Please share a memory or thought about the holiday season if you’d like, whatever kind of celebration you may observe. 

Since I’ve already wrote quite a few Christmas Memory posts, which you can find elsewhere on here, and since it is past Christmas, I hope your holiday season was and is a good one.

Happy New Year! 🙂

Time for another SYW, with questions from Melanie, and answers from me!

Join in this fun weekly challenge, and see other entries by clicking the above link. 🙂

Wishing everyone a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving.

***

What did you have for dinner last night?

We had a Mexican food TV dinner. It had two enchiladas, re-fried beans, and a coconut pudding.

Would you rather go out on a Saturday night or stay in?

We never go out at night, or ever really. I wouldn’t go out no matter which night it was.

How are you, truthfully?

Just fine.

What’s the best topping/ice cream combination?  If you don’t eat ice cream, what’s your favorite combination dessert?  (Example: pie and ice cream or pie and whipped cream – that sort of answer)

I don’t eat much deserts any more, but I do like a small fruit combo – with cut up apples, some sweet cherries, maybe a grape or two. Peanut butter and apples are really good together. 🙂

Interesting questions from Melanie, and some answers from me. Join in the fun – click the above link for details. 🙂

***

  1. Is copying and pasting images or information off the Internet plagiarism?   Do you credit those whose work you ‘borrow freely’ or do you think the idea is repugnant?   (Credit for this question goes to GC and Sue)

It depends. If you copy someone’s photo or words and claim them as your own – that is a definite theft. If it’s a logo or badge for a challenge heading I’m pretty sure that is allowed. I try to give credit when I use something, even if it says it’s free to use.

  1. Do you let sleeping dogs lie?

Two ways to look at this … if you want to avoid an argument, then yes, leave it alone. If it’s talking about a real puppy dog, well, most times leave it to it’s nap, but our dogs (when we had them) didn’t mind us giving them a hug when they were sleeping.

  1. What’s the strangest pet name (for adults) that you’ve ever heard someone called?

Most all pet names are silly. Some are endearing, and loving, while others are downright insulting. One I know someone used to use was ‘Dummy’, and they meant it just like that.

  1. Do you like to dance?   If yes, what’s your favorite and if no, why not?

I’ve danced a little bit, but mostly in the living room. We used to go to a dance now and again. I wasn’t good at it, and never really liked it.

***

The Questions:

What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery or came into a huge fortune? 

Which decade do you think had the best sense of style?

Would you rather be half your height or double your weight?

If you wanted to get away from everyone totally, where would you hide?


 

What do you do that you love? 

***

My Answers:

  • Pay off all bills of ours and our daughters & their families, buy stuff I wanted or needed.
  • The hippie eras of the 60s and 70s, because that was my favorite.
  • Half my height, which would be strange.
  • In a haunted house, because that would be fun, and everyone else would be scared to be in there.
  • My usual things I do already, of writing, reading, creating art, and listening to music.
