|sometimes I sits and thinks and sometimes I just sits|
Questions from Sunday Stealing this week
1. Five problems with social media
Wales and Italy, both in the countryside not in the city
3. Someone who fascinates you and why
4. Do you have tattoos? What are they and why?
5. A book you love, and one you didn’t.
I love so many books, and mostly it's about the authors so once they write lyrically to my heart I read everything they've written. I love Maeve Binchy's books for their character's honesty. I love Sara Dunnant for her lyricism that engages my mind so that I lost track of time. I loved the Thornbirds, and Sarum and the Harry Potter series, especially love Diana Gabaldon for immersing me in another time. I love Jude Devereaux for books on time travel.
I seldom finish books I do not like, so I have a hard time saying negatives. I'd guess the most recent one I didn't like was Crawdads sing.... I went back and finished and was cross about it
6. A fruit you dislike, and why
I love fruit and vegetables. A food I dislike is any strong smelling fish
7. Two words/phrases that make you laugh
from Gillmore girls "oy vey enough with the poodles already!" and from the little girl I was a nanny for, " lick-sticks" for lipstick and "cuddle-sacks" for culdesac
8. A quote you try to live by
9. Something you miss
a strong injury free body, a time when people cared about the common good not just themselves, being able to safely dye my hair, being thin.
10. Three weird traits you have
are you calling me weird? I'd say I am about as neurotic as others but one person's fears are different from another persons, so they call them neurotic. I have some old superstitious habits from the mother that are weird... if I forget something and have to go back in a locked house for it, I must sit before leaving.
11. What you wore today
are wearing, cuddle duds fleece leggings with a loose turtleneck sweater that swings below my hips. Or, my uniform on cool days, which we're having
12. Word/phrase you use constantly
13. One thing you’re excited for
14. Your feelings on ageism
it's a lack of respect of knowledge gained from study time and experience. Everyone will age (if they are lucky) so have some perspective.
Respect is never misplaced
you can't see the hidden pains people carry, be kind
15. Three interesting facts about yourself
I had to do this exercise at a meet and greet and it was fun to see who was open to sharing unique things about themselves, and who wasn't. ("I'm blond, I'm retired, I live in the neighborhood") (snore)
I was a wench at the Rennaisance Festival for many years, one of which was as a magician's assisstant
I taught English at Berlitz Language School to people from other countries who moved to FL
I really wish I could travel back to earlier times to see how people really lived, but be able to come back where I know how to cope!
what would you say?
