Sharing My World Week 34

It’s time to Share My World again. Didn’t it come round quickly? This challenge comes courtesy of Cee at her photography blog – pop over and check out her beautiful photos!



What is your favourite smell? What memory does it remind you of?
Well, there’s the sweet smell of bacon. That reminds me of eating bacon.

Mmm, bacon.

There’s also cut grass. That reminds me of hot summer days as a child.

Then there’s that certain undefinable cold, freshness you get early in the morning around Autumn/Winter time, when there’s maybe a light frost and the air is still, which reminds me of all the winter days leading up to Christmas, and a warm cosy house.

Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?
Well, this is a tricky one. I’ll go with “Honestly OK” by Dido and “Land of Confusion” by Genesis.

Do you play video/computer game?  Which one(s) or most recent?
Do I play video games? Why yes, yes I do. “Which ones” would be quite the list, the most recent is “Wolfenstein – The New Order”. There’s nothing quite like running around shooting people, robots and robotic people to de-stress you. It’s a good storyline as well.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)
Since I’m “Dr” maybe I should be “Doc”. I can be “Grumpy”, I’m usually “Sleepy” most of the time and when I’m out and about I’m “Bashful”.

The 8th dwarf would be called “Lucky”, I’d sure like having him around!

    Mmm, bacon!

    I like all of your answers this week, except wasn’t Doc kind of bossy and pompous? Surely you are not that kind of doctor? 🙂

      No, I’m not bossy and pompous 😉 Maybe I should have researched the seven dwarves before I answered.

        I didn’t think you were 😀 The drs outnumber us other folk at work, and they aren’t the bossy ones (mostly). Very misleading of Disney, LOL

    Ali, I like bacon too, but I don’t eat it in India. I’ve seen what the pigs eat here. I like film music, expecially the music for the epic films and the theme music for certain characters like Johnny Depp in the pirate movies. When that music starts you know he’s going to start swinging from ropes, etc. I don’t play video games. The only ones I have are on my computer. I tried one and got nervous as I don’t do well under pressure. My son quit playing because he said he was getting addicted. He used to play the paper version of Dungeions and Dragons with his friends years ago. I like board games better. You can take time to decide. I always enjoy reading your answers because of your sense of humor. 🙂 —Susan

      There have been one or two games I’ve been a bit addicted to! I used to play D&D as well. I remember those cool all-night sessions at university.
      I’m glad you like my sense of humour 🙂

    It’s hard to imagine you as bashful. But I understand that many of us can communicate better through our fingers than our lips.


    • August 31, 2014 at 9:48 am

      I’m pretty shy in real life when out of my comfort zone. I’m definitely much better with the typing than the speaking.

    I am eating a bacon sandwich in bed while my husband cuts the grass outside. Uncanny 😉


  5. August 31, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    Lucky. Yes, I can adopt THAT one. I’ve been missing him a lot lately.


    • August 31, 2014 at 3:41 pm

      I have a feeling Lucky would be quite popular.


  6. August 31, 2014 at 3:56 pm

    I could take Lucky too. Thanks for sharing.


    • August 31, 2014 at 4:24 pm

      Lucky is fast becoming everyone’s favourite!

    I’m sleepy…no really, I am sleepy. 🙂


    • August 31, 2014 at 5:10 pm

      Sleepy is not just one of the seven dwarves, it’s a real thing 🙂

    I share your scent except bacon. It just started raining here and the gras was cut a few days ago. I stuck my head out the window and took a deep breath in. Heaven.


    • September 1, 2014 at 7:24 am

      The rain really brings out the scent of the grass.


  9. September 1, 2014 at 12:10 am

    The problem with Lucky is it can go either way.


  10. September 1, 2014 at 1:38 am

    My smeller doesn’t work that well recently, don’t know why. I miss it.

    I was dopey most of my life, always something stupid happening. Funny but exhausting. I developed a sense of humor and it definitely rid myself of being self-conscience.


    • September 1, 2014 at 7:24 am

      Every cloud has a silver lining!


  11. September 1, 2014 at 2:30 am

    Lucky wouldn’t last 5 minutes in one of your Friday Fictioneers stories….. just sayin!


    • September 1, 2014 at 7:25 am

      Hey Lucky, meet Buster. I’m sure you’re gonna be the best of friends!


  12. September 3, 2014 at 7:34 am

    The song Honestly Ok is so sad, Draliman..I hope your 8th dwarf will enter into your life soon. Lucky Pawkisses 🙂
