Sharing My World Week 4

Here I am, back once again to “Share My World”!

This is a weekly spot hosted by Cee over at Cee’s Photography Blog. The aim is to get to know one another a little better by answering some questions πŸ™‚ . This week’s questions were inspired by Chris’ post I’m Having an Introvert Day. Plus a random question on blankets.


Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending quiet time alone?
Time alone, for sure. I’m always on edge when I’m out and about. I recharge by sitting at home reading, blogging and watching TV. If I don’t get enough alone time I get antsy.

Not everybody understands. It certainly put an end to my last relationship. Or was that because I’m a crap boyfriend? I forget. One of those.

What is the most number of blankets you’ve ever had on your bed?
So here’s the random blanket question! The simple answer is I can’t remember back that far. I don’t know how it is in the rest of the world, but in the UK (and much of Europe I think) we’re all about duvets. I don’t know what tog rating my duvet is but it’s warm enough that extra blankets are not required!

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?
Oh, goodness me, no! I’ll tell you what’s wrong with these parties. You stand in the darkest corner, arms folded and avoiding eye contact and there’s still someone who wants to talk to you! No personal boundaries.

Mind you, I’d attend if the party were held in a Hobbit burrow full of fascinating Hobbits I’d never met. I bet they throw a good bash.

Do you like talking to people on the phone? Or do you prefer voice mail or email?
I absolutely hate talking to people on the phone. You can’t see their faces. How can you tell what they’re thinking when you can’t see their faces?

Voice mail – no thanks. I can’t be talking to a machine. Email is where it’s at. Nice and safe, and completely lacking in any real-time human interaction. Lovely!

Well, that’s me showing my madness to the world. If you want to read what other people have said, or join in the fun yourself, click on the link to Cee’s blog at the top!

    Al, you and I are too much alike. Are we related?

    I actually think the blanket question is an introvert question in disguise. When nobody else will leave you alone, make a blanket fort and hide. With a good book and a drink, of course.

      We could be distant cousins or something!
      A blanket fort sounds like a good idea. I used to slip under the blankets (which I had when I was little) with a torch and a book as a kiddie. Not sure it did my eyesight any good 😦

    That’s an interesting challenge, Draliman, and your answers are very openhearted, but I don’t believe that you’re a crap boyfurriend…I think you’re a good cat…I mean man, of course πŸ˜‰ Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend πŸ™‚


    • January 31, 2014 at 8:20 pm

      Aww, thank you! You have a wonderful weekend too πŸ™‚

    I adored reading your answers. Thanks so much for participating!

      I’m glad you enjoyed my answers. Thank you for hosting!

    You can put me down for ditto on each answer. That’s a bit weird, but right down to the duvet, ditto. Hm. That must mean something. I just don’t know what.


    • February 1, 2014 at 4:28 am

      Quite a few of the answers I’ve read are quite similar (apart from the duvet one!). I don’t know if you clicked through to Chris’ introverts post but I found it very interesting – made me feel less of an antisocial freak πŸ™‚

    We’re such loners us creative types aren’t we! I’m with you on all those answers πŸ™‚


    • February 1, 2014 at 4:41 pm

      Many people are! I bet someone could get a PhD out of analysing the answers and constructing the personality type of the typical blogger.


  6. February 1, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    Seems we, and a few others, are very much alike.


    • February 1, 2014 at 4:42 pm

      Yes, it seems bloggers are very much birds of a feather.

    I have been dragged along to a couple parties in my life. Last time, I was lucky enough to stake out a chair in an out of the way place near where the plate of chocolate chip cookies were situated, and had the dog to myself to keep me company. That was the best party I’ve ever attended…


    • February 3, 2014 at 4:21 pm

      Just you, the dog and a plate full of cookies. Great stuff!
