Sharing My World 2016 Week 26

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


What’s your most memorable (good or bad) aeroplane flight?
I was en route to Cork (Ireland) for a job interview, but Cork was too foggy to land at. We circled around for hours while my presentation kept getting pushed back. Finally we landed at Shannon where I had a pint of Guinness before taking off again and arrived in Cork around six hours late. Obviously I missed my presentation and formal interview so we went for the interview over a meal at a five star hotel instead.

Result! And I got the job πŸ™‚

How many bones, if any, have you broken?
I’ve never “officially” broken any bones, but I’m sure I’ve broken my little toes a few times. I read somewhere once that most people break their little toes many times over their lives. That could be an old wives’ tale, mind, but that “crack!” as you drive your toe into the coffee table lends weight to the myth!

If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know)
That’s a tricky one, I don’t really know. I would go for three funny people though, so that there would be lots of laughs and no arguments πŸ™‚

Make a Currently List: What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating, needing, wanting, and missing right now?
: “Hotel Alpha” (Mark Watson) for the villageΒ book group and “Magic Shifts” by Ilona Andrews

Watching: Scream (the series), Jericho, How I Met Your Mother, Continuum and Archer on Netflix, Preacher on Amazon, Star Trek DS9 (again) and ER (again) on DVD

For lunch time/tea time/before bed watching I cycle through my favourites start to finish – Dr Who, Buffy, Angel, Bones, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, ER, all the Star Treks.

Listening to: All sorts! I’ve been listening to “The Pretty Reckless” a lot recently.

Eating: my cake!

I’m chickening out of “needing”, “wanting” and “missing” πŸ™‚

    Ooo what’s continuum like, I’ve flicked past it a few times. If you have Netflix have you watched Orphan Black?

      It’s pretty good. It started getting a bit weird at the end of series 3 so it will be interesting to see how series 4 works out. I’ve not tried Orphan Black, I keep flicking past it!

    I know i have certainly broken my pinky toe..a couple of times!

    Your over-long aeroplane flight sounds like a case of ‘all’s well that ends well’. Perhaps it was just as well you limited yourself to a pint of Guinesss to fill in your time, or the later interview might have been rather strained. πŸ™‚ It’s funny with little toes, almost everyone I know can say they’ve broken theirs. I know for certain I’ve broken the same one twice. The first time the only shoes I could wear for days were a pair of wide-fitting trainers.

      I only ever wear trainers!
      Yes, the interview all worked out fine in the end. And I got a mini-break in Cork because it was cheaper for them to pay for a weekend in a hotel than fly me back straight away.


      • July 4, 2016 at 8:25 pm

        Now, what’s what I’d call ‘a good interview’! πŸ™‚


  4. July 3, 2016 at 1:42 pm

    I’ll volunteer to be the first guest on your new talk show. That would be a sure ticket to cancellation…

      I’m not a fan of talk shows, so you’re on!

    love it


  6. July 3, 2016 at 3:00 pm

    After a flight like that it’s a good thing you got the job! Great answers!


  7. July 3, 2016 at 3:32 pm

    Wow. There need to be more interviews over meals in 5-Star restaurants. And you got the job also. That was a win all the way. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne


    • July 3, 2016 at 4:17 pm

      I think the interviewers were pretty happy about it is well. They got quite a sumptuous meal out of it, and probably put them in a good mood too!


  8. July 3, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    I have neglected reading this summer. It has taken me three weeks to reach a sort of equilibrium- although one of the weeks I was back in a college required class. I hope to start again next week. I am completing teh series BONES next week… All 10 seasons!


    • July 4, 2016 at 7:33 am

      It’s a great series! You’ll be ahead of me – I fell behind somehow so I’m only up to series 9.


  9. July 3, 2016 at 8:07 pm

    There’s something very satisfying about eating the cake you baked yourself, isn’t there? I’m told you can’t get fat if you back it yourself, especially if you eat standing up.


    • July 4, 2016 at 7:33 am

      Well, I sincerely hope that’s true given the amount I ate πŸ™‚


  10. July 3, 2016 at 8:58 pm

    Good you skipped the missing wanting and needing one. Can’t say we trust were you would’ve gone with the answers.πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

    Thanks for playing along this week. Loved your replies. πŸ˜€

    Can you believe it ? I have never seen the final season of Voyager? We have netflix now so I am going to finally see it! Love that cake!❀️

    It sounds like your nightmarishly long flight did you a favour in the end! Great answers, Ali. πŸ™‚


  14. July 5, 2016 at 8:21 am

    The far ends hurt the most, Draliman, so that must have been very painfull πŸ™‚ I saw cake coming by, so I’m off to taste πŸ˜€ Pawkisses πŸ™‚ ❀

    Oh, don’t chicken out, we wanna know!

    I loved Jericho and was sorry it was only two seasons. I tried to watch Preacher but haven’t been as enamored with it yet. Maybe I will try again soon.


    • July 6, 2016 at 6:12 am

      Preacher is kinda weird. I’m not entirely sure where it’s going…


  16. July 5, 2016 at 4:59 pm

    Yes I have broken a toe. And when I pulled it back in place — Aaaa — it was the worse pain ever.
    We watch some of the same DVD’s all Star Trek and Stargate series, Dr Who, Bones, How I Met Your Mother.
    Not reading the same books.


    • July 6, 2016 at 6:15 am

      Sounds like we have the same taste in DVDs!
      Broken/crunched toes are very painful.

    First, congratulations on your job. I’ve never had broken toes but had lots of times I had bruised toes that resulted them go numb all the time. I need a pair of steel toe boots around the house!


  18. July 6, 2016 at 5:41 am

    Well…if I was gonna chicken out on something….saying anything about needing, wanting, needing would be three I’d choose, too πŸ˜› I might write a universal feeling sorta poem about them, though.


    • July 6, 2016 at 6:20 am

      Yeah, they’re a bit personal πŸ™‚


      • July 6, 2016 at 6:34 am

        I know what you mean. Sharing some things personal + the internet don’t always mix well.


  19. July 6, 2016 at 5:49 am

    We are cycling through Angel again now πŸ˜€


    • July 6, 2016 at 6:24 am

      I’ve seen it so many times… but Angel is up next, I think. I especially enjoy the early series before it gets all full-on (and then fails to end properly!).

        Have you read any of the comics that take place after the series ends?


        • July 7, 2016 at 5:47 am

          I didn’t realise there were any, but I just looked and they’re on Amazon! Thanks for letting me know – I’m tempted πŸ™‚

            You should definitely check them out, we haven’t read all of them or the spin-offs (one day), but after being so frustrated with that ending, the comics helped since it picked up where the series writers were going anyway, from my understanding.


            • July 7, 2016 at 6:04 am

              I think I will – I have a Kindle Fire which is colour so I’ll download the first anthology (1-5) on there and see how it goes (the paperback copies would cost over Β£100 for the whole lot which is a bit pricey). Thanks again, fellow Angel fan πŸ™‚

    Landing in Cork airport was a nightmare for me too. Never again.

      Everybody I spoke too always wanted to know why they built it where they did!

        Exactly. I have never considered flying from Cork after my first and only flight to Liverpool.
