What’s the worst commercial you’ve recently seen (or heard)? Why was it so bad? … I hate most all commercials, and there are way too many of them and they run too long. Any that show poor animals or people I have to shut off. Any exercise equipment ones, and any medical ones – ugh! Also any laughing puppets or talking products.

What takes a lot of time but is totally worth it? … Blogging takes a lot of time, but for me it’s worth it.

Have you ever smiled at a stranger and then wished you hadn’t? Why or why not? … I don’t think so. A smile usually gets a smile back.

What do you think is the nastiest tasting food?  (This one might be a recycled question.  It’s familiar to me anyhow) … I don’t like much fishy foods, but there are some that are okay. I’d say any meat that is not cooked very well done – burnt is best. Oh, and applesauce is horrible. I like apples, but never smushed up ones.

What inanimate object do you wish you could eliminate from existence? … I guess this is supposed to be some object that doesn’t move? Right off I can’t think of a thing. Oh wait … any and any type of gun.

What tells you the most about a person? … How a person acts, and especially how they treat or speak about animals.

What is something you thought would be easy until you tried it? … Maybe playing the guitar. I know how to play my violin, but the guitar neck is way larger around than the violin’s, and I can’t hardly get my hand around it to reach the strings.

What ridiculous and untrue, yet slightly plausible, theories can you come up with for the cause of common ailments like headaches or cavities? … I’ve answered this question before, but can’t remember what I said, so … my theory for both of these is the use of microwave ovens. Who really knows what it is zapping into your food. Leakage of these unknown elements could certainly give someone a headache, and also cause your teeth to rot with cavities.

Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole?  (Credit goes to Cyranny for this question, aired on one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.) … I’d not want to be either of these. How about just nice and happy! 🙂

 

Have you ever made someone cry? … Not that I know of, except for laughing so hard they cried at something goofy I said or did.

 

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter? … Definitely a dreamer. It takes a lot of dreaming and thinking about things before I ever get up and go to it.

 

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play? … This would be an electric bass guitar. I had one one time, with very good intentions of doing just this. Didn’t work out, so I sold my guitar to a guy who actually did play it in a band.

Which would you rather throw away: Love or Money?  …I wouldn’t want to throw away either of these.

Do you believe you should do one thing a day that scares you? … Only if you are the adventurous type.

What’s the last thing you do at night? … Read a book until I fall asleep, then turn out the light and turn on my white noise machine tuned to ocean waves.

If you could own a mythical creature (unicorn, phoenix, etc.), which one would you pick? (A nod to the soon ending 2021 A-Z Blogging Challenge, my topic this year “Mythical Creatures”) 

I would have the creature known as Bastet. This is an Egyptian cat goddess who was known for her protection over all cats and for watching over the household.

From a Wiki article:

Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women’s secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children.

Here’s my Bastet cat necklace. It’s silver and sky blue with Egyptian decor engraved on it. My daughter bought it for me in Las Vegas at the Luxor Hotel.

What was the last TV show you binge-watched?   If you don’t watch TV (congratulations by the way) what’s the last thing you binged ON?

I don’t know if you’d call it bingeing or not, as we just have the regular cable type stations and whatever and however many episodes they put on is what we watch until they stop. There are a few old ones like Friends, 3s Company, Andy Griffith, & Everybody Loves Raymond that we watch like this. We don’t watch anything new.

What’s your most prized possession and why?

Well, the usual like family, health, and home of course. Then there’s things like phone, computer, & TV. I’m thinking this question is asking for a certain one item? ummm … yeah … I have lots of ‘stuff’ and I can’t think of any that is more prized over another. Sure I have many things from my relatives that have passed on, which I treasure because it brings back good memories. Knick-Knacks, dishes, furniture, cards & letters, photos … can’t pick just one thing.

If you had the time and inclination, what would you volunteer for?

Petting cats

Do you think that humans will ever be able to live together in harmony?

No

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time? … Well, if it was something I didn’t want even one of then it would be terrible if I had to take two of them. Could be whatever I didn’t want two of would be something someone else would love to have. So, I don’t know. Maybe a container of worms?

Have you ever gotten a really bad haircut?  Do share! … Yes, many times, and that’s why I never get my hair cut any more. The worst was twice, at two different places years apart, I just wanted a trim of the ends, and came away with my hair so short I had to buy a wig to cover up the awfulness until my hair grew again.

Isn’t Disney Land and Disney World (and all the variants) just a people trap operated by a mouse? … haha That’s so funny and I can see it being true. I’ve never been or even wanted to go to these places.

What if Batman got bitten by a vampire?   What would happen?  He’d turn into a vampire bat?

What do you want your final words to be if you could choose? … “I’ll be back…”

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.
