Sharing My World 2016 Week 6

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World. There are lots of questions this week! They were suggested by The Happy Quitter.

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone, and happy 13th AA birthday to me :-).


What is your favourite word?
“Douchecanoe”. That’s a good word, even though it’s not really a word (though weirdly Chrome thinks it is). “Awesomesauce”. “Nincompoop”. That’s a good word too, because there’s no aggression or rancour to it.

What is your least favourite word?
“Housework”. Or maybe it’s just the idea behind that word which I don’t like.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Oh gosh, these are toughies this week. Lovely nature scenes (in real life) I guess.

What turns you off?
Dog pooh. Seeing dog pooh. Smelling dog pooh. Treading in dog pooh. Pretty much everything dog pooh-related, you might say.

What is your favourite curse word?
“Gosh darn it!” (said no-one ever). Because I’m a proper gentleman. I don’t swear, that would be a naughty, naughty… oh fuck it, it’s “shit”. And “fuck”.

What sound or noise do you love?
The gurgling of water.


What sound or noise do you hate?
Vacuum cleaners. Lawn mowers. Drills. I hate any sort of loud, persistent noise. In fact, I think I may be allergic so it’s probably best that I don’t do any of those activities. And while I’m at it, the sounds of dustingย and washing the car and organising my paper work. I’m allergic to those noises too. Honest, guv’.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
International jet-setting playboy. I reckon I’d be good at that.

What profession would you not like to do?
Sanitary engineer. Dog pooh picker-upper. Call centre operative. Door-to-door salesman (do they still exist?). Anythingย involvingย talking to people.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
“This is terribly embarrassing, but the Pearly Gates are jammed after Angel Gabriel crashed into them in his AngelMobile. Pop back down to Earth and have another go while we get them sorted, there’s a good chap. You can be an international jet-setting playboy this time, if you’d like.”

    You are funny. It must be a ball to have a few drinks with you.

    Hilarious as always.
    Honestly at the pearly gates … Can’t help shaking my head at such a ridiculous scene.

    I need to memoriz Gosh, darn it. Funny answers.

    Enjoyable, again. I have been stuff on the fear of so many questions? I must be one of those three-tasks-and-out people? Although, sometimes the three tasks seem monumental as well….

      I was a bit daunted by all the questions too! A lot of people have done very short answers. I was going to do that but got carried away!

    The international jet-setting playboy sounds like a good second career. I’ll join you on the jet for cocktails, say what?


    • February 15, 2016 at 8:08 am

      For sure! I’ll swing by and pick you guys up.


  8. February 14, 2016 at 5:11 pm

    LOL! Great answers. I can’t stand the sound of dusting either. ๐Ÿ˜„


    • February 15, 2016 at 8:08 am

      That awful “swishing” which speaks of work being done…

    I’ll dig up that Buyers Guide To Fine Aircraft that’s been hanging around work for your new lifestyle…


    • February 15, 2016 at 8:10 am

      That’s great, if you could. I’ll just check my bank account. What can I get for ยฃ207.25?


      • February 16, 2016 at 3:19 pm

        There’s this awesome lightweight model that you can build yourself! It even comes with instructions on how to fold the paper…

    Congrats on the 13th anniversary. Awesomesauce is said quite frequently in our house. As are other less gentlemanly words, but hopefully LM doesn’t take to those!


    • February 16, 2016 at 8:09 am

      Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ That word and “douchecanoe” I first heard on Mer’s blog (Knocked Over by a Feather). Let’s hope LM sticks with “awesomesauce” at least a while longer ๐Ÿ™‚

    My dad’s favourite word was nincompoop – I haven’t heard that in years! Cheered me up reading this, thanks Ali ๐Ÿ™‚


    • February 21, 2016 at 8:52 am

      I haven’t heard it for a while either, but Buffalo Tom Peabody’s blog has a regular “nincompoopery” feature ๐Ÿ™‚


      • February 21, 2016 at 5:30 pm

        I’ll have to check that out ๐Ÿ™‚
