Here are the new question for SYW. Di is hosting while Melanie is taking a break.

***

1. Do you prefer to live in a single story property like a bungalow, a high rise apartment, or a house?

I like living in a house of our own, not bunched up with others like in apartments. We have lived in apartments, and duplexes before, though.

2. If you won a large amount of money on the lottery, would you want publicity or keep things quiet and low key?

I would keep quite except to immediate family.

3. How do you like your eggs? (No, this is not a trick question)

I like eggs cooked all kinds of ways. Scrambled are good, so are fried – over medium. Boiled or poached or in an omelet is good. I really like deviled eggs, too.

4. If cars were no longer available, what would be your choice of transport?

I’d be stuck at home, I guess. It would be fun to have a horse and wagon, but we have no place for those or the money for them, either. Most things around here are too far to walk to. Maybe I’ll just use my time machine to get around. 🙂

1. When you’re on holiday, do you prefer self catering or a hotel/B&B?

Well, we don’t ever go on a holiday or vacation. But when we used to, it was only to a family member’s house where we stayed. If we took a vacation now, I’d want to go with all the fancy hotel things. I’d not have to do any cooking or cleaning.

2. Do you have a favourite meal you cook for yourself or order when out?

I like home cooked meals best, but don’t do much of that these days. We both like our old family recipe way of making tacos. I also like my own version of egg rolls made from scratch. When I go out I usually get the same thing as always at whatever restaurant. Mexican food, or chicken fried steak I’ll never turn down.

3. In the current fuel crisis, have you made a conscious effort to use the car unless absolutely necessary?

Since the Mr. retired we don’t use our truck much. We get groceries and go to Dr. appointments. Doesn’t take much gas to do that.

4. If you were to compare yourself to a plant, what you be?

I’d like to be one of those mammoth giant sunflowers. They are tall, very bright and happy looking, and bring joy to those who see them. Also I’d provide sunflower seeds for people and the birds. 🌻 🌻 🌻

What mythical creature would improve the world most if it existed?  (If you don’t know, just choose something that you think would improve things  🙂  )

Maybe a magical unicorn! It would travel the world spreading happiness and joy, peace and goodwill, rainbows and sparkles and everyone would get along with each other – no arguments, no war, no shootings, no crime.

Should the death penalty be re-instated?  Why or why not?

I didn’t know it wasn’t still an option. Ok I looked it up and it’s still legal in 27 states.

Spontaneity Or Stability?

Mostly stability now. Years ago when we were moving around it was fun to be spontaneous.

Can a dog/cat suffer? What about an ant? What about a plant? What about a bacteria cell?  Why do some humans think we’re the only species that does suffer?  Your thoughts?

I think all creatures have some kind of sentient feelings, some more than others. This goes for plants, too. I’ve seen dogs & cats grieve over their companion canine & feline friends. I’ve seen a duck grieving over it’s mate that had gotten run over in the road. It’s so sad. They all have feeling of sadness, of happiness, of excitement and love. I’m not sure about ants and bugs, but I’m not dismissing it. And look at how many people talk to their plants and they seem to respond. I won’t go so far to say that bacteria does, though. That’s just ewww!

Here are the new questions for Share Your World (SYW). Thanks for hosting this fun challenge, Melanie! 🙂

***

The questions:

  1. In one sentence, how would you sum up the internet?
  2. Is true beauty subjective or objective? 
  3. How many chickens would it take to kill an elephant?  (like last week, I threw this one in for lightening things up a bit.  There is no ‘right or wrong ‘ answer – just have fun with it).
  4. If your five-year-old self suddenly found themselves inhabiting your current body, what would your five-year-old self do first?  

***

My answers:

1. The internet is a marvelous invention, which can be informative, entertaining, and useful for certain things, but beware what you click on or post on any social media as it could cause all kinds of trouble.

2. First I had to look up these words, and found they get confused in all kinds of ways. But I’d say beauty is purely subjective, which would be each persons own observation or opinion.

3. I don’t think chickens would want to kill an elephant. You know elephants really like to eat peanuts, well he probably drops some on the ground and the chickens get to eat them. So without the elephant the chickens wouldn’t get fed.

4. Play video games, and take lots of random photos with my phone camera, same as I do now.

Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

The brown leather purse I bought with my first paycheck

How did you spend the money from your very first job?

Not counting all the little stuff I bought from little jobs when I was a kid, I did finally get a ‘real’ job with a paycheck. I do remember what I bought. I went to Sears Department Store and bought a white blouse that had some ruffles on it, and also a leather purse. I still have the purse, a little worse for wear, but I keep sewing stuff in it now.

Would You Rather Look Like A Potato, Or Feel Like A Potato?  (Note.  I have no idea why they used the word “potato”, but just went with it.  Answer any way you like, this question is purely for fun)

What a strange question!! haha 🙂 I’d probably rather feel like a potato than look like one. Inside the potato is nice and crisp. I wouldn’t want to look like one though, because they are mostly dumpy and have a bit of dirt on them.

What were the best pair of shoes you have owned?

Shoes? I never liked shoes, and still don’t. I went from ugly brown oxfords when I was a kid, then tried other kinds later on, like black & white saddle shoes, penny loafers, buffalo sandals, Birkenstocks, and flip flops. Out of all of them my favorite was the Earth Shoe, and now Crocs. Both kind of ugly but they are comfortable.

Besides war and diplomacy, what would be the best way for countries to settle disputes?

This might be covered by diplomacy, but the leaders of disagreeing countries should talk it over, or have a boxing match or something. No one else but them.

Here are the questions for Share Your World this week. Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

***

What do you think it means to be healthy? … It depends on the person, and on which day you ask. Some days we feel fine, other days we just don’t. Everyone has something going on, visible or not visible, complaining or not complaining. There are guidelines to follow, but all you can do is try.

Is being obsessive about someone or something a good thing? … For the most part no. There’s a fine line between enjoying something, and going overboard. If it’s toward a person, there could be a case of stalking.  That’s criminal!

After a disagreement with your S.O., do you initiate the makeup conversation or wait for your S.O. to do it? … I’d say half and half.

Have you ever done something incredibly embarrassing in front of a huge crowd?  Feel free to share details or not.  Some things are best left in the closet..  … A huge crowd? Can’t remember if I ever did anything embarrassing, but might have. In front of family, all the time.

What’s your favorite way to spend a day off? If you’re retired, what’s something you now include in your schedule that you dreamed about while employed?

Without having an outside job (which I barely had one in the past) I can read as much and as long as I want.

Now that Covid isn’t so strictly monitored and folks can go out and about again, are you into after-work happy hours?

I never did happy hours ever. I still don’t go out anywhere, with the exception of Dr. appts.

What physical traits do you share with your relatives? (Example:  I have my mother’s nose)

My Dad’s nose – all on that side have the same shape nose.

How long does it take you to decide if you like someone or not?

5 seconds. Being an empath I can tell or know a lot about a person very fast. It’s just a vibe or feeling I can’t explain.

What are three scents you like?  … cinnamon, cilantro, wood fire, and a ton of others.

What is something true (factual) that most other people don’t believe? … ?? spider eyes glow in the dark. I’ve seen them.

Would you rather have a massage or get  facial? … I would never ever want either of these. Sounds creepy.

Have you ever thrown someone a really extravagant party? … Just family birthday parties at home mostly, and not really extravagant.

What is one topic you really like to talk about? Or something you really want to tell people?

I can always talk about books.

What do you normally never tell strangers about yourself? (be general, I don’t need to know details or invade privacy)

There’s lots of stuff I don’t go blabbing about to strangers. I don’t usually have conversations with strangers, unless it’s to say something about the weather.

Have you ever broken anything?  (can be health related, emotion related, or situation related – you define “broken anything” for your own satisfaction)

I break things all the time. I break dishes, knock stuff over, spill things. bump into things because I’m clumsy and a bit off balance at most times. I don’t have good peripheral vision, so I don’t even notice what I’m fixing to bump into. I was accused and fired from one job for breaking their machines, like adding machines and such. But it wasn’t me, it was the machines that were out of whack. I finally found that out. They had them refitted or whatever, and the problem stopped. By then I was long gone.

Is having a big ego a negative trait or positive trait?
Sometimes it is a big problem when the egoist keeps bragging about how smart, how wonderful they are and whatever they say or do is right and other people are wrong. It’s fine to have faith in your own self and a good balance of ego and humility.

Here are this week’s SYW questions. Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

***

When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not? … I don’t rightly remember, but I would think I did eat the crusts. Even now I like the crusts.

Are you a fan of musicals—why or why not? … Most of them I do like. I kind of wish people would break out in song and dance randomly as we go along during the day.

Is it difficult to do what you do? (for a living, hobby etc.).  If you’re retired, what you ‘did’ previously for a job can be substituted. … I only ever had little part time jobs in the past, like telemarketing and ironing people’s clothes. Neither job was hard to do, and I liked doing them a lot.

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?  (Doesn’t have to be a rock concert either) … I’ve been to a lot of concerts over the years. At the time they were the best. But looking back, I’d say Dixie Chicks (twice), and Pearl Jam were the best.
