Sharing My World Week 10

It’s time for me to share my world again! Actually, it was time to share my world almost a week ago, but this last week I picked up a bit of a social life. I know, me!

I’m also still spending time getting the house in order. The sitting room is all spick and span and the kitchen is pretty much there, but I still have a lot to do in the bedroom.

This week has some tricky questions. It’s all based on introvertism (I think I just made that word up – my browser is not happy with it), and is hosted by Cee over at Cee’s Photography Blog.


Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.
Hmm, the only word I can think of (avoiding the obvious) is “average”, so I’m going to use my bloggy name and go for “dark”, which pretty much describes my character, and is easily divined from my stories.

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think youโ€™d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?
Now this is a hard one. Most of them, but that would be my perception. They would have problems and worries that don’t show on the outside, I’m sure. The grass is always greener, and all that.

If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture? Please describe.
I think I would prefer to stay a tree, thanks. Looking out over the world, enjoying the sunshine and rain and the wind blowing through my leaves or needles.

I wouldn’t want to be a book, leafed through, falling to bits and discarded. I also wouldn’t want to be sat on. Please don’t chop me down!

You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with?
I don’t generally use lifts. Fortunately most buildings in Cornwall are not so tall that you can’t use the stairs. I’d definitely walk up three or four flights rather than getting all squashed in a lift with strangers. Enclosed spaces are fine as long as I’m in there alone.

Bonus question: ย What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I guess I’m grateful that nothing went horribly wrong last week. There was no reason why anything should, but you never know. “Dark”, remember? I’m looking forward to a couple of days off next week.

That’s all the questions for this week, most of which I have managed to avoid answering correctly!

    OK, funny you mention social life when answering questions about introvertism. Go you!

    I like that some of us had the first thought to just stay as a tree. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, two social engagements this week ๐Ÿ™‚
      I noticed that about the tree. I wouldn’t particularly want to be hacked down.

    Dryads don’t count?

      Dryads definitely count. Dryads are cool.

    I’m thrilled you had time to squeeze in SYW before the next one comes out. See you next week! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Average, really average. WT* have you been telling yourself these past few years. Pretty please, read The New Earth. Please.
    You are good looking, intelligent and kind man.
    Average, the earth is tilting.
    You ticked me off.

      Sorry I ticked you off ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Maybe I have a self-image issue. And thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
      I think you’ve mentioned “The New Earth” before but I can’t find where in the comments. Do you know who it’s by? There are a few on Amazon with similar titles.

    Ok, Eckhart Tolle wrote “The Power of Now” and “The New Earth” which is a ego enlightening based thought book. I’m not a fan of self-help books but his last book if read in small sections might click with you.
    A few pages only at a time. Do not over think this. You are so much more than average.
