Here are this weeks new questions for SYW from Melanie! Thanks! Join in and read other entries by clicking the above link. It’s fun. 🙂

***

What is knowledge?  … Knowledge is if you know something – anything, and I guess if you’re alive you know some things. Oh, isn’t that what the Scarecrow of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ wanted, and he got a diploma or something saying he had knowledge?

How do you define consciousness (self awareness)? … Well, if you are awake you are conscious. If you’re asleep or get knocked out you are unconscious and you aren’t aware of anything, except maybe you’re dreaming!

Is it possible to prove that other people besides yourself have consciousness? … hahaha well you can just look at them and tell if they are awake or not. Guess that would prove it.

Would you be able to tell if time had been altered in some way? … I think I would be able to. We just had Daylight Savings Time the other day, and yep, time was altered and I noticed it.

Do you like potato chips (they’re called ‘crisps’ in Europe I believe)? … I really do like potato chips of any kind. I’ve tried to eat ‘just one’ before and it can’t be done.  🙂

If not now, then when? … Later when I get ‘a round tuit’. 🙂

Can you describe your life in a six-word sentence? … I don’t know … Old lady that loves all cats? haha 🙂

Do you remember that thing people used to say, about how you swallow eight spiders a year while you sleep? It’s not true, but do you think you’ve ever swallowed any? What bug do you think you’ve eaten the most of by accident? … I’m pretty sure I’ve swallowed a gnat or two. Sometimes they drown in my coffee. I try to pick them out, though. I almost ate a roach one time, but caught it before I did. It was frozen in a pot pie. I’ve been suspicious of those ever since.

What’s the best approach to resolving conflict? … Walk away – far far away. By the time you get back hopefully the conflict will have been forgotten.

Here are this week’s interesting questions from Melanie! Click the above link to see other entries and also join in the fun. 🙂

***

How well do you know your next-door neighbors?   Do you like them?   (credit to Cyranny for the question) … Yes, we know our neighbors, and like them very well. Most everyone in the neighborhood have lived here for many years and have gotten to know each other. We also visit, watch out for each other’s houses, and help out with whatever someone needs.

Do you have a full length mirror?  (credit to Sadje for the rest of the questions) … No, I don’t have a full length mirror, and haven’t for years. I used to have one, but I can’t remember what happened to it. Either it broke, or one of our daughters took it to their house long ago.

(for the men)  Do you shave every day or do you like the ‘stubble’ look, or a beard? … xxx

(for the ladies)   How long do you spend putting on make-up in the morning? … I do my make up every morning, and it usually only takes 5 to 10 minutes.

How many items of clothing are in your bedroom (or closet) and not hung up? … There are a few in the laundry basket, and in the closet a whole bunch that aren’t hung up. If I try something one day and don’t like it, I’ll toss it down so I remember I don’t like it. (you don’t even want to know how much stuff is piled in there besides clothes!)


GRATITUDE QUESTION (as always optional)

Do you have a happy place? … Just being in my house is the best. Besides that, if it’s someplace I like to go, it would be a book store.

If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be for?  (Covid considerations are suspended for this question) … I don’t give parties and I don’t go to parties (unless it’s a birthday of my family) … But if I ‘had’ to, I’d just want family there, and to make it fun it would be a funny costume party.

Is a picture worth a thousand words? Elaborate.  … Maybe, maybe not. Art of any kind can be either good or not so good in the eyes of whoever is looking at it. Now if you asked if a picture worth a thousand dollars  – sure can be! haha

Where IS Waldo?   (Waldo, for those unfamiliar with him, is a cartoon character featured in many “find Waldo” images and puzzles)    No this isn't an April Fool's prank, it's actually Where's Waldo Week on Google Maps | This is the Loop | Golf Digest  <——  WALDO … Waldo is stuck in the forest of paper pages.

What’s the best part of waking up? …  Well, that you actually woke up! Then it’s coffee time!

Would you rather be covered in fur or covered in scales? … Most definitely fur. Fur is soft and warm. Scales are like fish, and fish give me the creeps.

Thanks, Melanie, for giving us fun questions to answer on SYW.  To join in, and see other entries, just click the above link.

***

What should you get rid off, that would make your new year better, and why? (Don’t say Covid-19, we all want to get rid of the dang virus) … No More Snow!!!

 What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done? … Maybe flying to Japan on my own, with a toddler and an infant.

Does your family have a “motto” – spoken or unspoken? … Not really, but I’ve heard this one a lot, and it’s stupid … “If you’re not cheating you’re not trying”, also we all know that Murphy’s Law saying – If anything can go wrong, it will – And it does, only we call it Spencer’s Curse.

On a scale of 1-10 how funny would you say you are?  (this does not mean ‘smell’ or looks; because this is a judgment free blog!)  … 10 of course! But not from trying to be. Mostly just from silly things that happen, go wrong, or being confused, saying wrong words. It makes my family laugh a lot. haha 🙂

Pick three words to describe this past year.   (please keep them PG. Thanks). … Scary, sad, horrible

 

What were the best books you read this year?   Or the best movie you saw?  … No movies, but tons of books I’ve read this year. I re-read all my many series, most of my TBR piles, quite a few on Kindle, and now am even reading my Mr’s series by Clive Cussler – 7th book of those already.

 

Because there was lots of time for looking inward, what is one big personal lesson you learned this past year? … Don’t trust anybody except my family. Stay away from people (idiots who don’t follow safety protocols)

Do you think Covid has strengthened or weakened societal bonds? … Very much weakened. People (idiots) don’t care who they might infect. Everyone’s afraid of everyone.

Time for the SYW questions of the week. To join in and also see other entries, just click the above link. Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

***

  • What is your favorite type of cookie (they’re called biscuits in Europe I believe)?   … I love all kinds of cookies, so it’s hard to choose just one. Chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, peanut butter – these are favorites and I make them all from scratch.
  • If you could choose one age and remain that forever, what would it be and why? … 25 – I don’t know why.
  • Do you have a traditional drink during the holiday season? … Nope. I have the usual all year long and none are alcoholic. (water, milk, coffee & coke)
  • Are you able to still believe in holiday magic as you did when you were a child?  … Not really. I still like all the traditions, though.

Melanie has asked some new questions for SYW! Yay! Thanks so much, Melanie!

***

  • What news event do you vividly remember hearing about as a child, and where were you?   … I definitely remember the day when JFK was assassinated on November 22, 1963. I was in school – English class – 7th grade, when the principal announced it over the loudspeaker. Everyone was shocked, of course. I think we still went to our classes after that though. And … I remember so well because it was the day before my 13th birthday.
  • What is a Christmas song that makes you cringe? … That Mariah Carey song “All I want For Christmas” is one I can’t stand to hear. I don’t know why, except they play it way too much – so you can’t get away from it fast enough in my opinion.
  • What is one place you shop(ped prior to Covid) that might have surprised people? … No where special. We only have 3 places we ever shop at. I haven’t been shopping since last February anywhere. (just once to the grocery store & I was horrified at how people weren’t taking precautions)
  • What is your least favorite holiday side dish? … Holiday side dish of food? I like most all of them. It’s the turkey I don’t care for. Oh, I’ll eat a few bites of the breast meat, but I load up on the sides of all kinds.

Do you enjoy skiing or ice skating or if it’s warm where you are, hiking or enjoying outdoor sports?   …  I don’t like winter, snow, cold, or sports – so nope.

Do you give to charities or homeless that you might encounter, during this time of year, more than you do otherwise? … Sorry, I don’t except put a little money in the Salvation Army bell ringer bucket as they are outside the store.

What is the most enjoyable activity you engage in during December?  Is it a tradition for you and your family? … We won’t be doing anything this year. Other years we’d get together with family for a meal and gifts.

What changes will C-19 bring to your festive celebrations this year?  … Same as answer above – no fun at all this year.

What would you enjoy if you could do so without someone getting annoyed with you for enjoying it?  It MUST be something you aren’t supposed to enjoy because it is “bad for you”.   If I want to do something, I just do it no matter what anyone else thinks.  Ugh – I’m confused about this question and could spend all day trying to figure it out. … Okay, how about singing out loud? I can’t sing in tune at all, but I really like to and enjoy it. It would annoy most everyone, though. How is that bad for me? They would tell me to shut up I guess.

Is it okay for men to wear the color pink? … Yes, sure, why not if they like it.

Can you curl your tongue?  … Yes

What, in your opinion, is the best room to put a fireplace? … We’ve never had a fireplace and we didn’t have one when I was a kid, either. They always seem nice in pictures or movies. It would need to be in the living room or a den.
