  •  The first question is courtesy of the magnificent blogger, Rory (aka A Guy Called Bloke”). He asked this one last Saturday on a random question post he wrote and I thought it was nifty AND sort of Halloween-y, so I thought I’d include it.

“How many people in real life or on social media (including WordPress, which has become a rather social media site) do you consider good enough friends to help you ‘hide the dead body?”

This is purely a silly and fun exercise, so don’t worry that there are bodies in need of burying. At least I don’t have any…. if you do, I hope you have some good friends who will lend a hand in getting rid of the evidence AND never tell a living soul….

  • Are You Ready To Order?   What Are You Having (craving) right now?
  • How’s the weather in YOUR neck of the woods?
  • Lastly, one deep question, because some folks enjoy those.  Prepare yourself.  Or pass. It’s all good!

There has always been something. Before there was something, there was only nothing. Which do you think is more likely?

Body-burying should be a solitary task. (And it’s never to young to start the necessary life skill!)


Are You Ready To Order?   What Are You Having (craving) right now?

How’s the weather in YOUR neck of the woods?


Lastly, one deep question, because some folks enjoy those.  Prepare yourself.  Or pass. It’s all good!  There has always been something. Before there was something, there was only nothing. Which do you think is more likely?

I will answer scientifically.

First with a chart…

Then with a  real life example.

  • Are we “here” or do we just think we are?  (A metaphysical question today folks.) Can you prove your point of view?
  • From an identity stand-point, which would be the worst for you personally to lose?  Your face, your body or your voice?    Which do YOU identify with most strongly for your own sense of self?
  • Do you have a ‘song’?  If you’re part of a couple, you could use “your couple’s song” OR a song that’s just always resonated with you.
  • “Spooky” Halloween Question:  Oooo!  BOO!   Are ghosts real or has someone been smoking something and just imagines them?


Are we “here” or do we just think we are?  (A metaphysical question today folks.) Can you prove your point of view?

Now, that is the oldest trick in the book. I’m not falling forit again!

Of course, I here. And don’t you dare pinch me!

From an identity stand-point, which would be the worst for you personally to lose?  Your face, your body or your voice?    Which do YOU identify with most strongly for your own sense of self?

Have to be the voice- I’d never make it as a MIME!

If you have time- watch this one. Amazing!

Do you have a ‘song’?  If you’re part of a couple, you could use “your couple’s song” OR a song that’s just always resonated with you.

“Spooky” Halloween Question:  Oooo!  BOO!   Are ghosts real or has someone been smoking something and just imagines them?

Knew that answer since I was a kid.

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question:  Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?



When was the last time you tried something new?  How did that go for you?

sweetandsavorymeals

I tried something new just yesterday- a new way to fix oven fried chicken. While browsing the net I f found a way to make the skin on the chicken legs crisper. Tried it…. It worked!

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

giphy

“The sun’ll come up tomorrow…. Probably.”

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

If I had my choice of ages- I would be 22 again. IF you asked me how old I felt- I’d plead ‘the fifth’ today.

Lastly, I’ll be doing one “Halloween” themed question per week during October.  Those who don’t observe the holiday are welcome to answer or to ignore it as they wish.

  • Have you ever driven the wrong way on a one-way street? How did this come about?
  • As a kid, did you ever decide to run away? Did you have a plan? Take a pet? Sandwiches?
  • You suddenly found you have a hidden talent for playing a musical instrument. What musical instrument do you hope that accompanies your talent? Any particular song?
  • Do you accessorize with jewelry? There was an opal necklace (cursed) and Slytherin’s locket (also cursed) in the Potter story. Have you had any heirloom jewelry passed down through the generations? Is it more ‘keepsake’ or do you wear it on occasion? (Hopefully, yours was not cursed?)


Have you ever driven the wrong way on a one-way street? How did this come about?

As a teen, I was driving through intense fog on a trip from Washington, D.C. I crossed a bridge-driving the wrong way- and I ended up on a military base. After much explaining, and a phone call (or two) I was escorted back to the turn-off I had missed.

As a kid, did you ever decide to run away? Did you have a plan? Take a pet? Sandwiches?

Mom advised me to stay for supper and then packed me sandwiches for a late meal and a snack for the dog. She put new batteries in my transistor. She even helped me put on my backpack with my sleeping bag attached.

You suddenly found you have a hidden talent for playing a musical instrument. What musical instrument do you hope that accompanies your talent? Any particular song?

If only I had hidden talent. But if I did, I would want to be a concert pianist.

I won’t have to pick a song. A concert pianist can play just about anything placed in front of them!

Do you accessorize with jewelry? There was an opal necklace (cursed) and Slytherin’s locket (also cursed) in the Potter story. Have you had any heirloom jewelry passed down through the generations? Is it more ‘keepsake’ or do you wear it on occasion? (Hopefully, yours was not cursed?)

I am not a jewelry person.

  • You have just been gifted a magic wand that specializes in completing household chores. You can request the completion of only two household chores. Which chores would you assign your wand to complete?
  • At the local Wizards-R-Us store there was a sale on handshake shockers, instant darkness pellets, and levitation pills. Which of these ‘party thrillers’ are you more likely to purchase?
  • In the alley behind Wizards-R-Us, there was a tradesman selling a Love Potion. The sales pitch was too much for you and you yielded and purchased one vial. What do you do with it?
  • You are the Great Clearinghouse Winner of a new ‘good luck’ potion – Felix Felicis. It has to be used within the next thirty days or its potency becomes diminished. Do you use it? Do you give it to a friend in need?


You have just been gifted a magic wand that specializes in completing household chores. You can request the completion of only two household chores. Which chores would you assign your wand to complete?

The first chore would be keeping the bathroom clean.

The second, once I taught the wand to read, it would become my head cook! I would still have to do the dishes and take out the trash- but I have a dishwasher, and the trach bin is next to the kitchen door. So, it’s a win!

At the local Wizards-R-Us store there was a sale on handshake shockers, instant darkness pellets, and levitation pills. Which of these ‘party thrillers’ are you more likely to purchase?

If the ‘levitation pills’ were good for a five hour flight, it’s a no-brainer. Day-trips … here I come!

In the alley behind Wizards-R-Us, there was a tradesman selling a Love Potion. The sales pitch was too much for you and you yielded and purchased one vial. What do you do with it?

I’ve seen the effects of ‘obsessive love’. I don’t want no part in it!

But, since apparently I have already purchased it … (the answer will remain a secret. I don’t want to be held accountable for its after-effects.)

You are the Great Clearinghouse Winner of a new ‘good luck’ potion – Felix Felicis. It has to be used within the next thirty days or its potency becomes diminished. Do you use it? Do you give it to a friend in need?

I’d take a sip each morning and drive immediately to the gas station to purchase lottery tickets.

I’d play the lottery for the next thirty days.

What happened to cause you to discover ‘bullies” were real?

At my neighborhood filed, when we were playing softball, a ‘friendly teen’ joined our group so that he could hit all three of our softballs into the cornfield- never to be found again.

Eavesdropping- When given the chance, how often do you eavesdrop?

At the movie theater, I have been known to eavesdrop. It’s so quiet … you can’t help it.

Escalators, at one time, were the ‘next big thing’. When was the last time you rode an escalator?

I have only ridden an escalator once- it was at a large aquarium on a class fieldtrip.

Have you ever ‘let’ someone win in a sports competition or a board game? How did it turn out?

To be a ‘good sport’, I let a friend’s younger brother beat me in tennis. He was an OK player, but when push-came-to-shove, I was always the winner. After that first time, and he realized I was able to be beaten … I never won to him again?

Many local regions, especially rural areas where I live, have haunted houses. Have you ever spent the night in a house that was supposedly haunted? Anything ‘strange” happen?

There is/was a haunted house near my college stomping area. It is now and beautifully restored stone colonial.

I, and a friend, did camp one Halloween night at  a local campgrounds only to find we were one of two groups there. The other was a local coven of witches – we counted eleven of them. It was a night to remember.

The Quidditch Cup (riding broomsticks while chasing a small ball) was a huge sporting event in the land of Hogwarts. What is the largest sporting event (or concert, etc.) that you have ever attended?

College sports – baseball and soccer – are my only vices. And those are small potatoes. Nothing big-time.

When you go for a swim, do you prefer an ocean, the seaside lakes, or a pool?

I don’t swim.

I tried to learn as a youth, but when I was asked to jump off the high dive (to be assisted by my sweet swimming instructor at our local pool) to doggy paddle to the edge of the pool, I whopped her in the head as I landed and we both had to be rescued.

I never attempted another lesson after that.

Ron Weasley received a horrid robe to wear as formalwear to the Christmas dance at Hogwarts. Tell about the most ‘ghastly’ fashion statement that you have ever made.

In ninth grade, I had a wonderful BRIGHT ORANGE shirt that fit like the current Under Armour Long Sleeve Compression Shirts do now. I thought I was the next one-hit wonder. Every time I went my a mirror, I could heard the mirror gasp and whisper, “You sexy thing, you.”

  • Is intelligence or wisdom more useful?

Is intelligence or wisdom more useful? 

I think Sheldon would provide that answer….


How important is play in living a healthy and fulfilling life?

Ask any dog…. TOTALLY NECESSARY!


Is happiness just chemicals flowing through your brain or something more?

I don’t think that ‘chenicals’ will cut it?
