I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  Additionally, I offer a ‘Gratitude’ Section for those who like a little affirmation with their questions!  It’s optional to participate in that of course. 

There are two ways in which you can participate:

  1. Create a Share Your World post. 
  2. Then post the link to that blog post.
  3. Alternatively, leave your answers in the comments box of this post.
  4. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  5. Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why that happens is an unsolved mystery.   For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!
  6. Some questions might be recycled from time to time.  Sorry if they come too close together!  The number of interesting questions (to me) is finite.   I try to mix them up judiciously but bungle that sometimes.  Mea culpa!

QUESTIONS

Do you believe in soul-mates?  (my definition of ‘soul mate’ is the IDEAL partner romantically). No can’t say that I do. Or at least I have not met him in my 65 years of life. Even my marriage was a disaster.

What are three scents you like? Cinnamon, lilac, and pumpkin pie spice

What are some things that you might be considered too old to do, but that you enjoy? Streaming live on YouTube. I enjoy it, but some people don’t like it considering the recent hate raids on Twitch.

What is one food you absolutely refuse to share? Seafood of any kind and ice cream. I know that is two, but no sharesies.

QUESTIONS      (a random bag today)  

Can you parallel park (if you drive)? Yes occasionally. It really depends on the area and how much room is available. I hate to do it though.  If you don’t drive, can you still skip? Can’t skip and that is obvious since when I broke my foot I couldn’t do crutches and had to go to a rehab until I got a walking boot.

Do you prefer early morning or late evening?  Or something in between? I prefer the middle of the night. I am a night owl.

Do you like avocados? NOOOOOOOOO!

Is mind or matter more real? I guess it depends although I would say matter is more tangible than mind.

and a bonus ‘deep’ question just because

Are people in this current generation less or more sensitive than people from past generations? Less sensitive and more “me me me.”

QUESTIONS

Restrictions are being lifted all over the world.  Do you feel it’s safe to go out and mingle in crowds in light of the Pandemic? No I do NOT! I think that is one of the biggest mistakes we can make. The current rise in the Pandemic is something I knew would happen when they raised the bans and stopped requiring masks. People don’t have the sense they were born with it seems. I could pretty much predict everything that has happened so far and we are not out of the woods.

What are some things that are okay to do occasionally,  but definitely not okay to do every day? Eat a ton of ice cream. I don’t know when to stop.

Would you relocate for love (romantic or otherwise)? I moved with my now ex-husband when he went into the Marine Corps. Now it would depend on the situation.

Do you believe in any conspiracy theories (no judgment)? Yes and there are plenty out there about the virus and the government and I very much believe in some of it being true.

QUESTIONS

Are justice and the law necessarily the same thing? I don’t think so. The law could mean police men, etc and/or a law imposed upon us and justice is what you hope to get from the lawmakes and the courts.

Which kitchen appliance do you use every day? The refrigerator.

What is one thing you’ll never do again? Drive across a bridge and into a major city. Scared the living daylights out of me.

What event escalated very quickly? I would say the Pandemic and it is still escalating. We are headed back for another run at it. There are probably other things, but that is what is in my mind at this time.

Welcome to Share Your World and Melanie’s Rules! 

QUESTIONS

What activity instantly calms you? It used to be reading, but I can’t seem to get into reading much lately. It also used to be writing, but even that is not calming now. Sometimes binging cooking shows of some sort even though I hate cooking. I am seriously anxious right now and almost nothing is calming.

What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve done lately? I don’t do things spontaneously. Perhaps cutting down on my hours of live streaming on YouTube could be one thing. I never thought I would make it official (made a video announcing my schedule change) and now I just have to remember not to schedule all those streams. I have been doing it automatically it seems.

If people receive a purple heart for bravery, what would other color hearts represent?  (Example yellow heart = cowardice) Well red makes me think of anger/rage. Green is money/wealth. Blue is medical related. Black is death.

What is the bravest thing you’ve ever done or witnessed someone else do? I had to think about this a bit. I think it would be the time the club I worked at caught on fire and I had to break the panic that was engulfing me and make a run for it with my coworkers. I came to a dead halt and someone had to drag me along making it dangerous for us both. He wouldn’t leave me and so I had to get up the courage and move. He was brave because he wouldn’t let me stay behind to die in the fire. I was simply frozen in terror. (Fire was an extreme phobia when I was a child. I am still terrified, but not as bad as I was as a child)

QUESTIONS

How well do you know your next-door neighbors?   Do you like them?   (credit to Cyranny for the question) Well here’s the thing. I am crammed into a high rise. There are mere feet between our doors. Some are ok and some “OH MY GOD!” Does that help? One is great and will do anything for me without expecting something in return. The other one expects everything with me and then remembers he needs to be helpful to me so I will continue to do things for him. He does take advantage of me, but I let it go as he does things in return so fair is fair. The other’s I don’t care one way or the other. I am only close to a few people in that 100 apartment high rise.

Do you have a full length mirror?  (credit to Sadje for the rest of the questions) No, I only have a mirror in the bathroom and can barely see in it.

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

(for the ladies)   How long do you spend putting on make-up in the morning? I do not wear or own makeup. I am who I am, take me or leave me, doesn’t matter to me and if makeup is that big a deal I don’t need you in my life.

How many items of clothing are in your bedroom (or closet) and not hung up? This pains me, but I am a hoarder and a slob so there are probably about 40 plus items not hung up. And there are way too many for me to wear so I have too many period.

Welcome to Share Your World and Melanie’s Rules!  

QUESTIONS

In your opinion, do May/December (older partner with much younger partner) romances ever work? I think they can work sometimes. An older male and a younger female aren’t so bad, but I tried it with a younger male. I was 50 and he was 24. I found it awkward in several ways. I prefer older men, preferably at least 10 years old than me.

What physical action or gesture do you find romantic? Kissing and holding hands.

What is your idea of a romantic dinner? Seafood since it was always a special meal. Now I have a neighbor who makes me a shrimp dinner at least once or twice a month and we aren’t in a relationship other than friends.

Is ‘love’ a real ‘thing’ or merely a physical chemical response and brain activity pulling our emotional strings? I honestly don’t know because I fall in love after meeting someone for five minutes sometimes. I don’t know them I just fall in love and fantasize about our relationship that is in my mind completely. And I certainly was NOT in love or even felt love for my husband. He’s been gone for 21 years now and he is miserable with his girlfriend and I am poor, but happier. Go figure.

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a Share Your World post.  Then post the link to that blog post or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  3.  Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why is an unsolved mystery.   You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!

QUESTIONS

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)   I snagged this question from another blogger, but failed to note who thought it up.  My apologies!  I KNOW better than to trust my memory any more.  If it’s your question and you’d like credit, please let me know!  Great question too, in my opinion! I know this is related, but I have to say wearing a mask. I have severe asthma and breathing through a mask is very difficult. If you don’t have asthma you have no idea how hard it is to breathe through a mask especially some of those cloth ones that are double lined.

 What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done? I think would say learning to dive. I am terrified of putting my head under water and that includes learning to snorkel and finding myself in a giant fish bowl with foot long angel fish charging up for food. I was absolutely terrified.

Does your family have a “motto” – spoken or unspoken? Honesty is the best policy. I can’t stand lying.

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!) Not very. Occasionally I will pop out with something funny, but usually I am about a 1.

QUESTIONS

Pick three words to describe this past year.   (please keep them PG. Thanks). Lonely, Crazy, and Unruly!

What were the best books you read this year?   Or the best movie you saw?  I am reading craft books on writing (I finished a novel this year) and my favorite so far is “Save the Cat Goes to the Movies” by Blake Snyder.

Because there was lots of time for looking inward, what is one big personal lesson you learned this past year? There are still some good people out there despite what we see in the news.

Do you think Covid has strengthened or weakened societal bonds? In some cases I would say weakened as we have been forced to stay away from each other, but there have been so many cases of people helping others that they normally wouldn’t do.
