Sharing My World 2016 Week 2

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World for this week.


Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets?
Apparently there are at least a hundred billion galaxies in the known universe. Each contains a gazillion stars. Even if only one in every billion billion stars has a habitable planet (that is, habitable by any sort of life) that’s still a lot of possibility for life!


How many places have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.
Quite a few. As a student particularly I moved around a lot, on and off campus. Let me have a think.

  • Cornwall, SW England – 5 different places
  • Surrey, SE England – 4 different places
  • Hampshire, SE England – 1 place
  • Hertfordshire, SE England, 1 place
  • Stuttgart, S Germany, 2 places
  • Cork, S Ireland, 2 places

Let’s add all that up. Let’s see, 4 plus 5, carry the 10, multiply by the day of the week, add Sunday, subtract the remainder, add the number I first though of… wow, 27,453! That’s a lot of places.

If you given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do?
I’d pay off my debts. That wouldn’t make much of a dent in 22 million, though. Then I would have a little holiday in New Zealand to visit the Hobbits.

The Never List: What are things you’ve never done? Or things you know you never will do?
I’ve never jumped out of, or off anything high up. That’s a good thing. I’ve never gone swimming with sharks. That’s a good thing too!

As for things I’ll never do, I’ll never use super powers to transport myself to the centre of the Sun where, protected from the heat by a personal shield I will never open a burger bar, catering to the hungry sun-dwellers.
I’m pretty sure I’ll never do that.

    Your “never do” seems a pretty safe bet.

      Yeah. I didn’t want to have to take it back in ten years.

    This is great. I can’t decide what makes me laugh more, the EAT poster, the calculation of moves or the never to-do list. 😄

      I was feeling in a fun mood this morning 🙂

    Wow! That is a lot of moving around. Did you ever completely get the boxes unpacked? (Are there still boxes?) Too bad about the Sun-dwellers… They will live and die without having a great burger!


    • January 17, 2016 at 4:26 pm

      There are still a couple of boxes with paperwork in that I can’t be bothered to shred/file away 🙂
      My excellent burgers will never touch a sun-dwellers lips – guaranteed!

    You’ve moved over 27,000 times, huh. You aren’t by any chance part Gypsy are you? Well done, Ali. 🙂 — Suzanne


    • January 17, 2016 at 4:27 pm

      It’s hard to put down roots sometimes 🙂 Hopefully now I have, though.

    I think taking a holiday to New Zealand to visit the Hobbits sounds good! I wouldn’t do the things you wouldn’t do either. 🙂


    • January 17, 2016 at 4:28 pm

      New Zealand looks so beautiful and the Hobbits are a bonus!
      Life’s too short already without jumping out of planes 🙂


      • January 17, 2016 at 4:31 pm

        I wouldn’t jump out of a plane either. LOL! Not me!


  6. January 17, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    I am with you, I don’t think I’ll ever go to the center of the sun either. 😀 😀


    • January 17, 2016 at 8:16 pm

      Seems a shame but also highly unlikely 🙂


  7. January 17, 2016 at 6:16 pm

    You mean … you don’t want to open the “Big Bang Burger Bar?” I was planning my next meal there.


    • January 17, 2016 at 8:18 pm

      Sorry. May I recommend “Lunar Lunches” or “Moon Munchies” instead? Both great establishments!


  8. January 17, 2016 at 6:44 pm

    You are silly.

    Can you believe people pay good money to be menaced by sharks? o_O


  10. January 18, 2016 at 3:27 pm

    Someone who has moved as many times as you have will almost certainly end up living in the center of the sun someday….


  11. January 18, 2016 at 6:22 pm

    Hilarious as always.
    Not to sound like a broken record, but yes your never to do list is definitely on the mark for every human being I think.


  12. January 19, 2016 at 2:06 am

    Yesssss, the hobbits. That would be at the top of my list, too. So would telling Sam to eff off and stop trying to steal my ring while I continue my quest alone 😉


    • January 19, 2016 at 8:08 am

      That Sam, always butting his nose in. Just shove him off the mountain already 🙂

    That’s a lot of moving, Draliman. Hope you are settled now for the 27,453th time in our life 😀 They say that you can fly when you jump from high places, but I think that’s only when you have a tail..won’t give it a shot either 😀

    I want to thank you so much for your words of comfort. That really meant a lot! Double Pawkiss thoughout the day 🙂 ❤ ❤


    • January 19, 2016 at 1:50 pm

      I am all settled now! I think you’re very wise not to try the flying thing, even with a tail 🙂
      You’re welcome for the comforting words. It has been a bad time for you.


  14. January 22, 2016 at 8:12 am

    Haha! Amusing and of course witty answers.
    Keep sharing your world 🙂
