Thanks for the questions, Melanie!  🙂

***

If You Could Be Best Friends With A Celebrity, Who Would It Be? … I don’t pay attention to any celebrities. I don’t care about their lives or careers. I wouldn’t want to be friends with any of them.

What is, or should be, the main purpose of law? … ?? Maybe to have certain common to everyone laws and rules to prevent chaos.

Do You Care About Reviews? … Reviews of what? Movies or books, or other entertainments? I guess there are reviews of all kinds of things these days, maybe restaurants? I’ll read some of them, but I don’t believe many of them. I don’t usually go on some unknown person’s opinion.

Is the ‘mind’ different to the ‘brain’? If so, in what ways? … Yes, they are different. The brain keeps us alive and all parts working. The mind is our thoughts and feelings about things, which are just stored in the brain for a while. Something like that.

Do you become discouraged by the annual “Blogging Ennui” phenomenon that comes around every year?    (it’s early this year IMO) (blogging ennui means (to me) a distinct slow down in writing and participation, which lasts an indefinite period of time).

I do notice a slow down of blogger’s posts each year. There’s no certain time, but suddenly there are fewer blogs to read for awhile. My email notices are less, and I can catch up quicker. I was just mentioning this the other day to  my husband, that I was all caught up. Other times in the year I’m overloaded with them.

If you were in a room filled with you and your doppelganger (someone who looks exactly like you do.  Supposedly everyone has at least one out there in the world)  and 2 billion dollars, what would you do?   What do you think your doppelganger would do?

We’d probably roll around in all that cash for awhile, then divide it up and go shopping.

A building is burning. You have time to either save a child trapped inside or a valuable painting which you would then sell, using the money to save 20 children from starvation. What would you do and why?

Save the child who is right there. Life is more important than some painting.

What’s your opinion of yams or sweet potatoes?

I like them. I don’t really know the difference between them. I like them done into fries, and also baked and also in a casserole type dish. Oh, they also make a pretty leafy plant. I used to put one in water and it will sprout lots of leafy vines.

The questions:

  1. What two totally normal things become really weird if you do them back to back? 
  2. What is something that you just recently realized that you are embarrassed by, that you didn’t realize embarrassed you?  
  3. If  Australia (including New Zealand and Tasmania – which I KNOW are different countries); the UK, Ireland, Germany, the USA, and Brazil or Italy were represented by one food, which would it be for each?  
  4. What might happen if Goldilocks and the Three Bears were set in modern times?
  5. Where was the most most embarrassing or inappropriate place you’ve passed audible gas?

My answers:

1. ??

2. I don’t get embarrassed by much of anything anymore

3. Aus = seafood, UK Shepherd’s pie (is this like a pot pie?), Ire = corned beef & cabbage, Ger = schnitzel, USA = steak, Braz = fruit salad

4. Goldie would have her cell phone with her and call for help if she was lost in the forest. Meantime, if the bears came home, she’d make them her favorite pets.

5. Anywhere & not embarrassed as it happens to us all

Here are the new questions for SYW Thanks, Melanie. 🙂

***

Are you more productive at night or in the morning? Do you think it’s possible to change and get used to another schedule?

I’d say morning, then a little more late afternoon. Yes, you can get used to another schedule after awhile.

What’s the biggest vehicle you’ve driven?  If you don’t drive, what’s the biggest vehicle you’ve ridden in? 

Probably the conversion van we used to have, and now our pick-up truck. Both have side steps to get up to the seats.

What songs would be played on a loop in hell?  (Suspend disbelief for this one, it’s cool not to believe in Hell, but let’s use our imaginations to answer.  Of course one can always skip the questions they find odd too.  And yes, I took into account that individual tastes will influence individual choices.)

Depends … it would be hell to hear a song you hate over and over. For me that would be ‘Jessie’s Girl’ (Rick Springfield). Can’t stand that one.

But here’s a cool one I do like and it’s about the Devil- Luciferl!

“Sympathy For The Devil”, by the Rolling Stones

Here’s another set of questions for SYW. Thanks so much, Melanie!

***

What very common thing have you never done?  (this one probably is a recycle, but I don’t think it’s terribly recent?)

I have never lived on my own by myself before. Even when my husband went overseas for a year or more, I still wasn’t by myself. A couple of times I moved back to my parents house, and other times later on it was just me and my kids at home. Still not completely by myself.

Are we morally obligated to be charitable, if we have the means to?

I think it’s nice to contribute to charities or donate a few dollars here and there to some good cause if I’m able to, but I’m not ordered to do this, not obligated to do it.

What is the most amazing fact you know?

Maybe the fact that the earth is just a big ball floating around in space.

What’s your favorite sandwich and why?’

I’m not crazy about sandwiches, but I do like BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato), and tuna fish, and also pastrami.

How do you tell if someone has a sense of humor? … Maybe because they laugh and smile a lot, and don’t get mad when unpredictable little things happen, and they can laugh at their own mess ups!

What sort of music do you prefer? … I like all kinds of music, but probably my favorite is any kind of rock.

Thoughts on gravy or ‘sauce”?   Yea or nay? … I like gravy, like cream gravy, or brown. I’m not crazy about sauces. Now I’ve heard that some people call the stuff you make spaghetti with as ‘gravy’. Here we’d never say that. We call that spaghetti ‘sauce’.

Would you enjoy a hot air balloon ride? … I always thought it would be really fun, but not any more.

What’s The Strangest Thing In Your Refrigerator? … Nothing very strange unless something has an expired date on it.

Would You Rather Hear The Music Of Johann Sebastian Bach Played By A Barbershop Quartet, Or A Heavy Metal Band? … Heavy Metal Band – I like a lot of this kind of music.

If You Could Erase One Event From History, Which One Would You Erase? … Any and all wars.

If Your Food Is Bad At A Restaurant, Do You Say Something? … Yes, most of the time I will. I want my food to be how I ordered it. I want hot food to be hot, and cold food to be cold, and I’ve had it be just he opposite quite a few times.

Here are some new questions for SYW provided by other bloggers. Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

***

Questions From Fabulous Bloggers

12-17-2021  Cyranny  “What’s the worst day of the week for you?”  Why?

Every day is the same here, but I’d say Saturday and Sunday are the least favorite because our regular TV shows we watch aren’t on until the week starts again on Mondays.

1-3-2022   Mrs. A (Jazzocracy)   Mrs A proposes a question for a future SYW. “Would you ever consider posing naked or semi-naked for the camera or a live audience (acting in a play)?”

Absolutely not!

1-10-2022  Di    With the recent energy crisis here in the UK, would you prefer electric, gas, oil or some other means of heating your home?

All electric. That’s what we have now. I don’t like using gas because of the chance of carbon monoxide fumes.

1-10-2022  Marilyn  When this pops up later tonight, I MIGHT have thought of a few questions. Like: In your household, who takes care of the bills, taxes, and other financial stuff? Is one person responsible or is it a shared chore? And this has made me notice that my phone is missing. Oops.

The Mr. does all of that here. The only thing I do is make out the checks after he gets everything ready to go.

1-10-2022  Yinglan  Not sure if this question was asked before. It’s a bit of a silly one: If you can have any one job (real or fiction) in the galaxy (yes, the galaxy, I’m widening the search radius, imagining relocation to other planets possible), what is that job?

I don’t want a job anywhere, but if I had to it would be to sit and read whatever I wanted to all day and get paid for it.

  • What is your least favorite holiday side dish?  (for any holiday) … mince pie
  • What is the ugliest or most tasteless decoration you’ve ever seen? … can’t remember seeing any ugly or tasteless ones
  • What is a cherished or unusual (either or both) family tradition from your childhood?   (this is the recycled Evil Squirrel question that got bungled by moi, and sounded like a packaging question.  My bad). … Just getting together with family at grandma’s house for lunch.
  • You’re walking down the street, feeling great — what holiday song would be playing in the background? (aw, play along. I realize some of you prefer a very silent night.  It is an option to pass on this question too.  No offense will be taken). … Feliz Navidad

Thanks for the weekly questions, Melanie! Happy Monday! 🙂

***

How many pillows do you sleep with?  If over one or two, is it because you sleep better ‘propped up’ a little?

The more pillows the better. There are at least 12, plus some more on the side. I switch them around a lot, because I can never get comfortable.

What would be the worst thing you could put in a piñata?

Lots of things would be awful in a pinata! Anything liquid, anything that would explode, anything nasty, stinging insects, and on and on.

 (for those unfamiliar with piñatas, they’re a popular party ‘game’ especially at children’s parties.  Made of paper maché the idea is to hit the thing which is on a rope or tied in the air somehow with a stick or something, and get the prize if you smush it open.  It’s filled with candy and small toys usually)   

 

What noise annoys you the most?

Advertisements on TV!!!!! I hate them all. They are loud and annoying and stupid, and they run them way too many times a day.

If cartoon physics suddenly replaced real physics, what are some things you would want to try?

Umm – I don’t understand this question. What are cartoon physics in the first place? Is it like the psychic hot line? Is it physical exercise? Is it like a science class in school? Don’t know that I’d try anything – wouldn’t even know what to do. hahaha
