Questions:

Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

Lord Of The Rings Eating GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

I love ALL my meals. There are some days where I look more forward to one more than the other. Like Christmas morning, even though we have a huge lunch. We have a really yummy breakfast, it changes from year to year. But we always have a nice breakfast, before we head off to my Aunts for the big lunch. No wonder, I always fall asleep, lol.

Who do you admire most in the world?

I probably admire my Great Grandfather the most. He passed when I was about 2/3 years old. Too this day though, he still influences me. Every now and then I find something that he was interested in, that I too am interested in. He loved taking his daughter (my Gran) to plays, loved Shakespeare and he loved the Ancient Greeks. Before he passed, he was trying to learn Greek, to travel and see the sites. We found a book full of scribblings of his. That was only in my 20’s that we found that.

With the obvious restrictions in place, what do you regret not doing in the last year?

Learning how to draw earlier. I’m starting to get that feeling that I’ve wasted a lot of the year. It’s been hard to motivate myself. I’ll have days where I’ll start something, but then, there’s always that excuse to stop.

Halloween Treats!

How lucky are we that this year, Halloween is held on a actual weekend! Which is why I want to talk about the yummy treats that are some of our favs for Halloween! After all, what is Halloween without food. It’s just not a thing.

Now I am going to post a article from Delish.com, for all those people who are possibly actually celebrating Halloween this year and may need some easy ideas. But I want to talk about yours and mine, absolute favourites!

50+ Easy Halloween Party Treats

Some of these I would not call “easy” to make, lol. Be wary, some of them may actually give you a heart attack lol

Now, these may shock some…but I don’t actually like pumpkin…You know, the traditional food of Halloween…I like pumpkin soup, but mostly, I don’t like pumpkin.

I actually went to America, over a decade ago now. It wasn’t until I was in Australia, that I first tasted candy corn, and maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, do I LOVE it!

Muggle Questions (from Melanie):

What is the last song you sang along to?

“Not Ready to Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks.

What was your scariest nightmare about?

I still can remember my scariest nightmare. It was all in black and white. I was tiny *think Honey I shrunk the kids* and I was getting eating alive by a snail. Even to this day I always freak out a little bit when I see a snail,lol.

What food do you crave most often?

Lasagna, Lasagna….LASAGNA

What’s your grossest bug story?

Apart from killing mosquitoes, filled with my blood. I don’t think I really have any.

Questions:

Where Do You Not Mind Waiting?

You know what, I don’t mind waiting at the Doctors. For some reason waiting at a Doctors seem to piss a lot of people off. If I’m at the Doctors to just get a prescription for a pill, I don’t mind waiting, because for all I know. The person that’s in with the Doctor, is getting some really BAD news. Bad news, that I am sure at some point in our lives, we will all have to wait for. Or they’re running late because earlier in the day they had to give bad news.

What Is In Your Fridge Right Now?  (you’re not required to give a comprehensive list)

Food and Drinks…Hahahaha!lol….There is definitely left overs. A little chocolate, because when we put the heater on, it melts the chocolate. Definitely cider and coke…like coca cola…not coke coke,lol…There are lot of cans of sprite and 7up (lemonade). I usually like drinking them in the Summer, not Winter so much. So they tend to collect during Winter.

If You Could Only Speak One Word Today, What Would It Be?

Kindness.

Would You Rather Be Trapped In An Elevator Full Of Men With BO Or Three Soaked Dogs?  (this is with the codicil that C-19 doesn’t exist)

THE DOGGIES! ALWAYS THE DOGGIES!

QUESTIONS:

Pancakes, waffles or French Toast as your breakfast favorite? 

Without question, waffles. I love them all mind you, but if I had to chose, it’d be waffles. I wouldn’t be able to tell you why though. I like that just that little bit more though.

Do you think a person’s name influences the person they become?

I think to some extent it does. When you think about the amount of celebrities who change their name, that we know them by. So on some level it does. I also think they we feel not a social pressure, but a certain type of pressure to be like what you were named after. Myself, I was named after Lauren Bacall. Sometimes I feel I need to be a bit more cooler…At least I’m not named Karen at this time!

Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?

I do believe it would go better if we focused on more things that were going well. It just does your brain good. But not like the way Trump does it. He thinks everything he does, goes well. Don’t do “going well” like Trump.

Is math(s) something that humans created or something we discovered? Is looking at reality mathematically an accurate representation of how things work?

Maybe both?lol. I think it’s kind of hard to explain, as I would not call myself “mathematical” at all,lol. It does to an extent, it also depends though…Oh god, this is complicated in my mind. I know that I think maths does accurately represent how a lot of things work, but not everything…lol. As an example, they say music and maths are very similar. So somebody who can do maths well, can also play music. HOWEVER, does that mean that someone who can do maths, also represent how and why music makes us feel how we feel when we listen to a song that makes us feel … Oh dear god, I thought…ed!lol


GRATITUDE

What are you grateful for right now?   I realize it’s difficult to be very positive right now, unless one is being positive that things are pretty awful.   Let’s spread the joy in gratitude!! 

I am honestly grateful for the Blogging community, especially the people who read mine! I had to go away and you’re all still here! Still communicating with me, although at the moment it can feel somewhat of an overabundance of communication is happening right now. It’s good and positive communication. Even this question is positive. Despite knowing that it’s not a great time, the question asks us to think of something positive and so you do. So I ask anyone who may not do the questions this week, to read this and any other blogger whose done the questions this week and think of something joyful and positive!

Questions:

On A Scale Of 1-10, How Strict Were Your Parents?

My Dad was definitely more stricter than my mum. But also, let me put it this way. When my parents separated my brother never got told off for anything. NOW, my parents blame the other one for how my brother turned out. My brother isn’t a bad person, but like he’s bad with money, as an example. He never did chores, he technically didn’t pass High School, but he is as smart as! Yet, he’d get pocket money ALL the time. Because he was popular too, he’d get extra money to go out. I learnt how to save so I could go out. So now he has a very bad relationship with money. He’s two years younger than me and it’s honestly only been this year, when he’s borrowed money, he pays it back. That might be because, as well, he got a huge amount of it for a job he did this year.

I personally hold both my parents responsible. My Dad wasn’t there for us physically, but that was his choice. He was always “sick”… or hung over. We may have been with our Mum 95% of the time, but my Dad, he’s a parent too. Technically my Dad was the stricter parent, but how can you be strict with people you are never around?

What Wastes The Most Time In Your Day To Day Life?

Probably my computer gaming time. If I have something that needs something done, I can end up playing a computer game for literal hours.

Do They Bury People With Their Braces* On?   (* “braces” in this scenario are those metal bits they put on people to straighten their teeth.   I realize “braces” are also some item of clothing that I believe men wear to keep their socks up or something.  I’m talking about the teeth option).

I’d assume they would, if you die with them on? Honestly, I’ve never been to a funeral where there has been an open casket. I’ve never had to identify a body, or known someone whose died with braces. I’m only assuming they would, because that’d how most of their departed ones would know them?

Why Does A Round Pizza Come In A Square Box?

I did hear that it’s because bins are square, well they are in Australia. And because everything is mostly in a rectangle or square shape. It’s just easier. I just don’t know how true it is,lol

Gratitude:   Share something you are grateful for right now.  I know that’s a tough question.  It helps to share those bright bits with folks though, because many of us are seeing through an increasingly dark glass.

I am actually grateful for a lot of things. It was like I was saying to my mum the other day. It’s hard to be sad when there are so many who love and who loved you.

QUESTIONS:

Can you bake a cake?   (credit for this question goes to Di, who asked it on her post recently.   Thanks Di! After last week’s SYW, we needed a little bit of sweet and light!)

https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/02/29/its-a-mystery/

I can technically bake a cake, whether that’s baking well or not is another matter. I actually prefer to bake cookies. I LOVE cookies, and it seems everyone else bakes cakes in my family anyway. I think once I have kids, I’ll probably have to more, but basically I can, but I prefer cookies =D

What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better?

Without a doubt, both of the furbabies instantly make the day better. Even when you go to the rubbish bin, they are just so genuinely happy to see you. Of course as well, when you get that package you’ve been waiting for, sometimes you think it’s gotten lost and then you realise…It has not! Or starting to read a really good book.

When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not?

I ate it all, baby!

What’s something your family would be surprised to learn about you?

I’m not actually sure to be honest. They know pretty well, I haven’t really hid anything from them. The only thing I’ve hidden from them is the fact that my anxiety tablets made me depressed there for a bit.


AND (of course)

GRATITUDE IS AN ATTITUDE!

Please feel free to share some gratitude from this past week (or month or year).  This is purely optional of course, but it does tend to uplift everyone (I happen to think) to read some happy and/or joyful thoughts or view some uplifting pictures.    Thank you if you do so! 

Just having another day here. With the ability to stay off social media if I so choose. I guess I feel grateful that I have choices.

QUESTIONS:

When was the last time you tried something new?

Food wise, I am always trying new food and to try to cook something these days. Adventures type wise, I haven’t done anything new for quiet a long time. I guess it also depends on what “new” is. Next week, I am seeing David Suchett (most famously plays Hercule Poriot_ talk about his career and I haven’t gone to one of those for years! The venue is not very comfortable or breathes easily, which is tough for someone with newly-ish developed anxieties. So it’ll be a new thing for some reasons, but also old.

If you were forced to eliminate every physical possession from your life with the exception of what could fit into a single backpack, what would you put in it?

I want to say my furbabies, but I guess that depends on what people would consider possessions. I personally don’t,lol. THEY ARE THE BABIES, NO MATTER HOW OLD THEY GET!

A single backpack, can I carry some too?lol…I would have to have at least favourite photo of everyone I care about. Probably at least two of my favourite books. I just don’t know which ones,lol.

Probably some of my favourite earrings/jewellery. Clean underwear.

What simple fact do you wish more people understood?

A meme is not a fact. If you’re going talk about truth and facts, then you have to back yourself up with them. Especially now.

What food item do you go through fastest in your house?  (credit to Sandmanjazz)

I have just discovered Philadelphia cream cheese, sweet chilli flavour pour-over dip. Freaking A! I discovered it probably about November last year. I have two containers of it at my mums and two at my partners,lol.

Questions Of The Day

  • Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And how’d that work out for you?   (Credit Allie Bean  https://thespectacledbean )

Just very recently really. I told myself I am not allowed to drink anything coffee anymore, coffee beans or milkshake. It worked out because I haven’t had any since and I didn’t have a total anxiety break down,lol

  • What is gravity and how does it work?

My partner is actually a teacher and he teaches this, but bugger if I know,lol. Something to do with how we move around the sun, or is it the sun moving around us?!

  • What is more real – Mind or Matter?

I feel like without ones minds, what would matter? Woooo, trying to get all deep,lol.

  • Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers? 

I didn’t expect this question, gave me a good chuckle. I think it would actually depend on what type of vegetarian they are and what’s in the animal crackers,lol. Some vegetarians do not have milk, or eggs, or butter from animals.

Lastly

Halloween Question:   

(Gratitude questions will resume after Halloween is past)

Name (describe) something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark and deserted wood or alley.   Politicians are a given, so skip those please.  Thanks! 

One word…Octopus…They are too smart and they fit everywhere! I will never forget the documentary about them. Where every morning the scientist would come back and all the crabs would be gone. So they put up a video and it was the octopus. Waiting till everyone left, leaving it’s tank, eating the crabs. Getting back to it’s tank before everyone come back in the morning. Then they showed…I don’t know if I should say this. They showed an octopus going through plumbing, the size of a shower pipe. I couldn’t relax on the toilet for at least a week,lol

QUESTIONS:   

What would be your solution to the over-population of the earth?   Earth has finite resources and humanity seems to be breeding themselves to extinction.   Some countries have tried restricting the number of children a couple or a person can have, with little success.  So what other viable options are there for reducing the number of people? 

I honestly have no idea. We seem to be going backwards in that regard, meaning, forcing women to give birth more and more.

Okay, the rest will be ‘recycled’ questions.   I got a Sunshine Blogger Award recently and I thought some of the questions on that post were kinda nifty.   So “recycle”!  

What’s invisible but you wish people could see?

This is going to be lame…I wish people could see love and hope. I feel that they are so important for people when the world is horrible.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?

I think because I live in Australia, this one has some resonance with me. You are more likely to be killed by a falling coconut, than a shark.

Death by Coconut

What are the unwritten rules of where you work? If you don’t work (retired or unemployed) what are the unwritten rules you live your life by?

We’re not supposed to come on sites, like WordPress, especially if Managers are around. Mine are training newbies right now, but they’re off exploring at the moment…But when it gets quiet, everyone has a non-work site that they go onto. WordPress is usually mine.

How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?

Oh, I LOVE pineapple on Pizza…Yes, I am one of THOSE weirdos!lol…I have two usual favourites. One is Hawaiian and the other is chicken BBQ. Actually I’m not sure if the chicken BBQ one has pineapple, but I still really love it!

Toilet paper, over or under?

I always forget how I do it when I see this question, but I think it’s over? I put it so people have to take it from the top.

What’s the best type of cheese?

Jarlsberg Swiss cheese, with the holes in them. Freaking delicious!
