Sharing My World Week 13

It’s time once again to Share My World! The questions have been posed by Cee over at her photography blog. I don’t have a lot of time, I’m off to work soon to start the “long weekend of work” so I’m writing this now in case I don’t have any more free time until next week.


Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets?
Of course there are other thingies and whatnots out there. Have you not seen the TV? I was watching an excellent documentary the other day, it was called “Star Trek” I think, and they had lots of pictures of extraterrestrials. Here’s one (copyright probably CBS/Paramount).

What type of pet or pets do you not want to have?
I wouldn’t want a duck-billed platypus as a pet. I would think that they’d be quite hard to take care of!


High-maintenance pet.

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
I’d be bluey-purple. I like that range of colours. Or alternatively I’d be white, because no-one would use those much and I’d exist a long time.


What type of transportation would you be? Why?
Transportation? I’d don’t really fancy dragging people from place to place. If I had to be a mode of transportation, maybe a little boat, cutting through the waves in the sunshine. That might be nice. Except I wouldn’t know if it were nice or not, because I’d be a boat, and boats aren’t aware of such things.



From superyachts.com, for sale now at only Β£6.5m. I’ll take two!

Bonus question: Β What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Oh dear, this tricky question again. I’m grateful I’m still alive and kicking. I’m looking forward to the hopefully successful completion of this weekend’s big project at work.

See you next time when I will be “sharing my world” once again!

    I like your transportation choice, and I must say that I also agree with you about the pet πŸ™‚ Have a lovely weekend drali πŸ™‚

    What has the duck billed platypus ever done to you? πŸ™‚ love the post it got my day going with a smile. Have a super weekend.

      I’m sure the platypus is very sweet, but I’d rather have a kitten πŸ™‚
      I’m glad you enjoyed my post. You have a super weekend too!

        Kitten, puppy, hamster the list is long before we get to the platypus. I laughed out loud when I read your answer.

    Oh, good call on the crayon color! Longevity vs. popularity πŸ™‚

    Great answers, as always. Hope everything goes well this weekend!

    We have the same favorite color! πŸ™‚


    • April 4, 2014 at 12:25 pm

      Yay πŸ™‚
      It’s a very popular colour, judging by other people’s answers!

        My blog is covered in it. πŸ™‚

    I love your way of thinking on the crayon color choice. White Crayolas were about as useless as those cheap plastic pencil sharpeners…


    • April 4, 2014 at 12:27 pm

      Yeah, as a white crayon I’d last forever!

    Ha Ha, spoken like a true Trekkie πŸ™‚

    Platypi are actually quite dangerous with a poison claw, I kid you not, everything is trying to kill you in Australia!


    • April 4, 2014 at 12:27 pm

      Not good for cuddles then? Boo.

        definitely not good for cuddles at all – sorry!!


  8. April 4, 2014 at 2:32 pm

    I didn’t know that about Platypi and their poison claw. Actually I’ll take one of the yachts too. Thanks of much for sharing. See you next week.

      Looks like I was right not to want a platypus as a pet!


  9. April 5, 2014 at 5:24 pm

    white, what logic for choosing it !! Thanks for sharing glimpses of your thinking πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend and goodluck with your project.


    • April 6, 2014 at 3:14 am

      That’s my practical side coming out!
      The project is going OK so far. Another ten or so hours today and hopefully we’ll be all set for everyone coming back into work tomorrow!

    I have been through all of the exotic pet phase and think I’ve pretty much settled on having an indoor cat or dog for the rest of my life. Those squirrels, snakes, owls, monkeys, saltwater fish, horses, pigs, chickens, cattle…………….. done with all of them.


    • April 8, 2014 at 3:15 pm

      Exotic pets sound great in theory but there are always drawbacks…
