If the government offered to suspend all laws, and law enforcement for 24 hours, letting you (and everybody else) do whatever you wish… Would you be in favor of it, or not?  (Credit for this question goes to Cyranny and her Daily Quickie Question)

 

No .. it would be a free for all of chaos

What would be the creepiest thing you could say while passing a stranger on the street? (We’re suspending the whole social distancing and Covid involvement in this scenario)

 

Hi – I’m a ghost – can you see me?

As a child, what did you think would be great about being an adult, but isn’t as great as you thought it would be?

Probably being able to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted to, and for many years it didn’t happen. But now I can and it’s pretty much great!

What, in your opinion, has been blown way out of proportion?

Just about anything you hear on the news medias

Gratitude Section (Optional as always)

Where is your ‘happy’ place?  

At home with a book and my computer and a snack

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.

  • 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.

  1. What is worse than a dentist with bad breath? … A murderer would be worse, Bad breath doesn’t necessarily kill you (you just think it will) but now … a dentist that wears no mask and has bad breath may certainly kill you, and is a murderer!
  2. Have you ever been rejected by someone that you liked, or been told that you were not good enough for somebody else? … Not that I know of.
  3. Did you ever want to have toast for breakfast, only to find that all your bread was covered in green mold? … Yes, so I throw it away and find something else to eat.
  4. Did you ever sneeze so hard that your whole body hurt? .. Yes, that and coughing, too.
  5. Did you ever buy clothing on the internet that did not fit, but you wore them anyway, since you didn’t want to pay the $5 shipping charge to send them back? … No, we don’t buy things to wear (or really anything) from the internet.

Is cereal soup? Why or why not? … I think not. Cereal is basically grains and you pour milk over them. You can eat it plain and dry, or hot or cold. Soup is most always served hot, and has vegetables and maybe some meat in it.

What are some interesting ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”? … We probably just say ‘it’s going’. For the other, I’d probably say ‘whatever I want to do’.

What was your favorite toy growing up? … I played a lot with little plastic people and animals, quite a bit with paper dolls, Barbie dolls, jacks, stuffed animals.

If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask? … What do you want? Want to play? Why do you eat all your food except one tiny little green pea. You always leave that one tiny bit … why?

  1.  Do you like or dislike surprises? Why or why not? … Most of the time I don’t like surprises. I kind of need a bit of time to prepare myself for whatever is to happen, either good or bad.
  2. What’s your favorite zoo animal? … I’ve always liked the giraffes.
  3.  What three things do you think of the most each day? … What is going to hurt or give a pain this day, the weather, what book am I going to read next.

‘Deep’ Question

4. When, if ever, is taking a human life justified? … If some bad person is coming at you to kill you or any of your family, then I’d kill them first if I could.


Attitude of Gratitude Section (Always Optional)

Do small miracles exist? … Yes, of course!
