Sharing My World Week 18

Here I am to Share My World once again, brought to us by Cee over at Cee’s Photography Blog. So without further ado, I’ll jump right in!


What object do you always have with you when travelling and why?
The quick and easy answer is “a credit card”. That way, if I’ve forgotten anything I can buy it. Not that I’m rolling in money and can just replace everything, but I can stretch to that forgotten toothbrush.

I’ll also make sure I have my Kindle, camera and so on – the usual things – but after a credit card the most important thing is my phone. My phone lets me read my Kindle library (in case I forgot my Kindle), I can work out where I am with the GPS, Google local services, check to see how much money I have left, take pictures and if all else fails, actually phone someone!

What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?
That’s a tricky one. I’ve sometimes thought about psychology or sociology. Or maybe economics. That sounds really boring and it might have numbers in it but it might be nice to see what’s going on and how the entire world’s economies fell to bits.

I think I’d rather know a bit about everything than everything about one thing. That sounds like a good way to earn a living by winning pub quizzes.

Which would you prefer:  a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
It’s the quiet life for me! I like everything planned out and stable. No sudden surprises for me, thanks!

What are your favourite spices?
Tricky one this! I need to find something that is undeniably a spice.

Parsley, rosemary, thyme?
Herbs. No wiggle room here. Denied!

Apparently a condiment. Possibly also a spice. I’m not taking the chance. Denied!

Curry powder then. You can’t go wrong with curry powder.
This is a blend of spices, not a spice. Denied!

Garlic? I love garlic!
It’s a species of the onion genus, and onion is not a spice. I think that dried garlic powder is a spice, so I’ll take a chance. That’s one!

Chilli powder.
Ground dried chillies. Definitely a spice. Yay!

So after all that we have garlic powder and chilli powder.

See you next week when I will be sharing my world once again!

    I defined spice as “something sold in the spice area at the store.”

    Use a phone to call someone? That’s crazy 🙂

      Maybe I should have done that, it would have been a lot easier! Not that I’ve ever spent much time in the spice area of the supermarket, to be honest.

      Apparently in ye olden days the only thing you could do with a phone was phone people. Imagine that 🙂

    20 years ago you would be lost without a book to read since cellphone were in their infant stage. 🙂

      I got my first mobile phone in the mid 90s (my girlfriend at the time insisted because I was doing a long commute). I was the first person I knew with one!
      When I go away I usually take a book with me as well, just in case 🙂 You don’t need to recharge a book.


      • May 11, 2014 at 10:15 am

        I had a cell in late 90’s for my job. But even still they didn’t do half the things they do now. 🙂

    Brilliant answers as always! What would we do without our phones these days? Do we even know we can phone someone with it? 😉


    • May 11, 2014 at 7:19 am

      I’m sure there’s an app somewhere in there that lets you phone people 🙂 Not that I use it much.

    A kindle is something I still haven’t got, it sounds like a great idea. My phone is internet free, which gives me a break when I’m out of the house 🙂


    • May 11, 2014 at 7:28 am

      I first got my Kindle because before I moved house I had no more space to store books, but I love it now. I still read books, but I usually get them as presents. It’s nice to be able to finish one book on my Kindle and have the next delivered in seconds.

    Interesting answers. I replied to this under your flower post, sorry.
    I did not like the question about
    life, the choices. You can have a emotional and financially sound life filled with adventure and passion.
    Just shoot me if that was my choices.


    • May 11, 2014 at 8:08 am

      I see what you mean about that question. That’s the sort of life I’d want – no adventure or passion at all sounds kinda boring, but I need my security as well!
      Meteorite hunter (from your other comment) sounds like a cool thing to do. It would be amazing to find something that came from outer space (and recognise it as such, more importantly).


      • May 11, 2014 at 9:57 pm

        You recognize away, I’m enjoying the hunt and to insure that bank account, I’m selling.
        Ha, let me know when you buy your first magnet to hunt with.

    They all sound like spice to ME 🙂


  7. May 11, 2014 at 3:41 pm

    I love what you wrote about the spices…made me laugh and smile. Thanks.


    • May 11, 2014 at 4:39 pm

      That’s my goal, glad you enjoyed it!
