  • What should you get rid of, 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!
  • What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
  • Does your family have a “motto” – spoken or unspoken?

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I suspect, I’ve said enough.


What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?

Gfycat

This is not me!


Does your family have a “motto” – spoken or unspoken? 

I don’t think we ever had a ‘family motto’. I know me mom used to say, if we had a problem with someone,., “Kill them with kindness”.

I looked up the true meaning of this phrase … … “To harm, inconvenience, or bother one by treating them with excessive favor or kindness. The phrase originated as the expression “kill with kindness as fond apes do their young,” referring to the notion that such animals sometimes crushed their offspring by hugging them too hard.”

I DON’T THINK she meant that!!!


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!)

I don’t know if I am a funny … humorous… person? But I feel safe in your judgement free zone, so I will share my best attributes.

My nose has been compared to that of a tapir…

Rainforest Action Network

And my ears, as a youth, could have out-done Dumbo, the elephant.

Both of these are strong, family traits.

  • What’s a relationship deal breaker for you?
  • Do you believe in extra-terrestrials?
  • In the morning, do you hit the snooze button on your alarm (sometimes repeatedly) or do you leap out of bed, ready to face the day?
  • If you came back in the next life as an animal, which animal would you choose to be?  (and even if you don’t believe in that, let’s suspend belief for a moment just to have a little fun)


What’s a relationship deal breaker for you?

A father-in-law who does not own a Mazda Miata dealership.

Do you believe in extra-terrestrials?

Having just finished a Star Wars marathon…. I am a believer!

In the morning, do you hit the snooze button on your alarm (sometimes repeatedly) or do you leap out of bed, ready to face the day?

What is an alarm clock?

If you came back in the next life as an animal, which animal would you choose to be?  (and even if you don’t believe in that, let’s suspend belief for a moment just to have a little fun)

Since we are allowing the belief in extraterrestrials…. I would come back as a cousin to Yoda!

What were the best books you read this year?  

Wikipedia

The best book series I have read this year is the series that I am re-reading… The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly. But then, I almost never waste my time completing a novel I don’t enjoy!

Or the best movie you saw? 

I am terrible at judging the ‘best’ movie… It is always the one that I just finished watching. (I never finish the one’s I don’t like!) I just finished a StarWars marathon.


Because there was lots of time for looking inward, what is one big personal lesson you learned this past year?

The Acropolis Project

That’s a very deep question…. I’ll get back to you.


Do you think Covid has strengthened or weakened societal bonds?

The North Star

So you think society still has social bonds?

What is your favorite type of cookie (they’re called biscuits in Europe I believe)?

“Cookie? Yes, please!”


If you could choose one age and remain that forever, what would it be and why?

 

I suspect it is self-explanatory?


Do you have a traditional drink during the holiday season?

Everyone knows, the best holidays drink (for any day of the year) is  Mountain Dew!

 


Are you able to still believe in holiday magic as you did when you were a child?

Mom said that as long as you believed in Santa, Santa would bring you presents. I believe!

I am (was) a hiker!!! If God had intended for us ….


Do you give to charities or homeless that you might encounter, during this time of year, more than you do otherwise?


My giving heart shares equally on all days… There is no special holiday season for giving.

  • 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”.
  • Is it okay for men to wear the color pink?
  • Can you curl your tongue?
  • What, in your opinion, is the best room to put a fireplace?

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”.

BURPING?

(I was going to attach a classic video showing off expert burp-ers, but apparently on YouTube all expert burp-ers have to cuss up a storm or giggle like little school girls. That definitely negates what I knew as the qualifications of being an expert burp-er!)

Is it okay for men to wear the color pink?

Personally, I don’t care what color clothing you wear.

But something to think about: If men wearing pink is actually an OK (acceptable) thing to do, why is such a big deal made of it? Nobody makes a big deal out of greens or blues …

Can you curl your tongue?

Nope.

What, in your opinion, is the best room to put a fireplace?

I think having a fireplace in every room of the house would be wonderful! (Maybe no the bathroom?)

Thanks, Jim, for the questions this week!


  • What is worse than a dentist with bad breath?
  • Have you ever been rejected by someone that you liked, or been told that you were not good enough for somebody else?
  • Did you ever want to have toast for breakfast, only to find that all your bread was covered in green mold?
  • Did you ever sneeze so hard that your whole body hurt?
  • 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?


What is worse than a dentist with bad breath?

I have never thought about a dentist having bad breath? I guess I am usually too spazzed out about having someone putting their fingers in my mouth that I don’t really think about anything else.

Have you ever been rejected by someone that you liked, or been told that you were not good enough for somebody else?

Has my sister been showing her favorite video at the family gathering again?

Did you ever want to have toast for breakfast, only to find that all your bread was covered in green mold?

I thought that the green mold as like a ‘go’ sign and it was finally nutritious enough to eat?

Did you ever sneeze so hard that your whole body hurt?

(Does that answer the question?)

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?

I never send unwanted purchases back… They are now called Christmas presents. (Oops, I think that was supposed to be a secret? Please, don’t tell anyone.)

Is cereal soup? Why or why not?

I asked the Lucky Charm’s leprechaun if his cereal, once covered with milk, was actually a soup. He looked at me like I was stupid. I think the answer must be no!

What are some interesting ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”?

“Swell. I love being in self-seclusion. Are you sure that you’re six feet away from me. You know how germs love to fly from person to person.”

What was your favorite toy growing up?

Pudgy Lee Bear. (Yes, he had a middle name!) He kept all my secrets; loved me when I was sad’ played with me when I was happy, and never tired of me reading to him.

If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask?

    • What do you do when I am gone for the day?
      • Do you really just stretch-out at the threshold of the door and await my arrival?
    • Why do you bark for me to fill up you water bowl after you have finished drinking?
      • Are you really preparing for the next visit?
    • Why don’t you like ****?
      • Is it the beard?
