Share Your World – 10/05/2020

Questions:

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

I guess it was Gardening? I haven’t done anything that’s new, but I’ve never really done it before. I LOVE IT! It’s just been funny, because the first plants I bought. The ones that were supposed to live well, died, and the harder plants to grow, have lived and are doing well, lol. It’s been truly lovely though, gardening is therapeutic.

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

Oh gosh, so much! Oh!lol…My post yesterday “JB: I think we are living in anti-intellectual times, and that this is evident across the political spectrum. The quickness of social media allows for forms of vitriol that do not exactly support thoughtful debate. We need to cherish the longer forms.”

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

Well no one thinks I’m 36, probably middleish 20’s.

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.

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question:

Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?

No, and I am SO glad about that! I’m guessing this doesn’t mean animals, because then, yeah sure,lol. Fresh human body though, no.


GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)

Do you enjoy any seasonal traditions around this time of year?

Well, I’m sort of always between the more American Halloween traditions, mainly with the candies and the dressing up. But also with the Celtic traditions, like honoring those who have passed on “beyond the veil” type thing. I know that these days, we shouldn’t appropriate traditions, but…I don’t even know if I honestly am!

Not Married, But Attached — Musings from a Tangled Mind

I know I’ve written many times before about the weird and wild world of online dating. I’ve written about the “stranger danger” Spidey sense that hits when you decide to meet a stranger in person for the first time. I’ve written about the unflattering photos of men way past their prime flaunting their topless torsos […]

via Not Married, But Attached — Musings from a Tangled Mind

Can I just begin this by saying that I feel really bad that I don’t pay much attention to this category. I created the “Single in a small city”category and then about a month later I met my now partner of roughly over two years. I always feel funny about writing being single in any form, when I’m not. However, I still love hearing about other people’s dating stories and I absolutely adore the tv show “First Dates” It’s hilarious! I think that I’ve only be right about one couple so far and I so happy for them that they were still dating after the show.

The above post is from Musings from a Tangled Mind and it’s really hilarious post, it is really great and shows what kind of odd balls there are still out there. Online dating seems to be the thing to do these days.

I met my current partner through online dating and it worked for me. I think it worked for me, I think though that it worked for me because I was “sensible” about it. I met him for the first time in a public place, I made sure I actually had an excuse to leave (if it was turning out to be horrible) and never gave out any personal information!

However, my current partner was not the first person that I met on a date from online dating, and I actually didn’t want to meet the guy. It was more at my mother’s instance. Always listen to your gut instincts! On the one and only date I went on with the other guy, it was really uncomfortable. I already didn’t want to meet him before the date. He insisted on paying for my dinner, but he kept saying how he did it. Then he insisted on dropping me off home, I was not about to let him know where I lived! Then when I convinced him to not drop me home, he left me outside by myself, on a dark street, while I waited for a taxi.

Share Your World … Week 48

Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?  

It depends on the dish! Sometimes having nuts can give the dish a different, crispy feel. I think they are great in things like salads, but not so great in something like soup.

If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction?

Mine would probably be a romantic-comedy. Which is funny because I don’t actually like those, but it makes the most sense for a film for me, I’ve dated some real funny ones, but ended up with the best!

 Who talks real sense to you?

My Grandmother, she such a non nonsense type person, she also really gets me as well. She knows what I’m capable of and what I’m not. When I’m ready to listen and when I’m not.

Do you have a favorite board game?

My favourite board game is probably Monopoly. I usually am not a huge game board player, because I don’t like sitting around for too long. One of the reasons I like Monopoly is because you can have a few people playing, so it’s a bit more interactive.
