Sharing My World 2016 Week 30

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


Do you prefer a bath or shower?
A shower. A bath sounds great in principle and it starts out great, but after a while you either stay in too long and you end up in lukewarm water and looking like a prune or it’s too hot and you end up all sweaty. Or perhaps I’m doing it wrong.

Plus a bath uses an immense amount of heated water and I know from personal experience that switching from showers to a bath increases your water bill by an insane amount.

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?
An Amazon distribution warehouse sounds good. I guess that counts as a “store” as they store stuff there, but if I choose to translate “store” as shop, possibly not :-(. How about somewhere that sells really expensive cars? No?

You’ve gotta give me one of them, so I’ll take Amazon. They sell everything. I’ll stock up on the best of the best!

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?
Early thirties, I think. That’s pre-aches and pains, but old enough to be all sorted out and for people to take me seriously as all grown up πŸ™‚

List at least five movies that cheer you up.
That’ll be films that make me suddenly laugh out loud or feel-good films

  • Expendables 2 (great cameos, loads of people getting shot)
  • Planet Terror (horde of zombies getting chopped to bits by a helicopter rotor)
  • Die Hard (the ultimate Christmas film)
  • From Dusk Til Dawn (because, vampires)
  • Starship Troopers (kill the bugs!)
  • Aliens (kill the bugs!)
  • Star Wars eps 4, 5 and 6

Bonus question: Β What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week at work I got a promotion! Now I’m a “Systems Architect“. I’m gonna architect the hell out’a this job. Next week I’m looking forward to sampling my new purchases. Death or glory awaits!

    Great inside of the bath, Draliman, not that it is only the water that makes you look like a prune, but anyway…MOL πŸ˜€ Granny and I want to be forever young, no more aging…nor pruning…MOL πŸ˜€ Concatulations on your promotions, that’s good for an Extra Pawkiss πŸ™‚ ❀

      Hopefully my stomach will survive the tasting πŸ™‚

    I prefer taking shower because I’m lazy to clean the tub real well before taking bath.


    • August 1, 2016 at 7:27 am

      Ha, yes, that’s a very good point too πŸ™‚


  8. July 31, 2016 at 8:13 pm

    I always enjoy reading your posts especially “Sharing your world with us”, nice to read you got a promotion, Congratulations.


    • August 1, 2016 at 7:27 am

      I’m glad you enjoy reading my posts πŸ™‚

    Congratulations on the promotion! I always look forward to your posts!


    • August 1, 2016 at 7:28 am

      Thanks! And I’m glad you enjoy my posts πŸ™‚

    Hot sauces and cheeses—sounds great to me! Congratulations on the promotion as well, Ali. Maybe they should offer Amazon gift cards for “x years of service” and/or as part of a promotion package (just thinking out loud here)? Anyway, have a wonderful week . . . P.S. Oh, in case I don’t get to add a comment there, I enjoyed the ‘throwback’ Friday Fictioneers you posted. Of the two I’ve had time to read, both touched on climate change and were creative/fantastical (if sad).


    • August 1, 2016 at 7:30 am

      Thanks! I already got 3 extra days holiday at 5 years and another day at 10 years, so I’m doing quite well.
      I’m glad you enjoyed my rerun FF stories! And have a great week yourself πŸ™‚

    I’ll join in and congratulate you on your promotion! Your purchase looks great. I’ve read how much you love condiments. Those should keep you going for a while. All the best, Ali. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne


    • August 1, 2016 at 2:23 pm

      Yes, I’m looking forward to sampling all these sauces πŸ™‚


  12. August 1, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    Congratulations on the promotion!


  13. August 2, 2016 at 1:27 am

    Oooh, Amazon warehouse, smart! Congrats on the promotion! πŸ™‚


    • August 2, 2016 at 10:16 am

      Amazon has everything, and it is an unlimited shopping spree after all…

    Well done! Congrats on your promotion! ❀

    Ah, From Dusk Til Dawn… what a nostalgic film. I enjoyed all three! πŸ˜€
    Congratulations on your promotion, Ali! I wish you glory! πŸ˜‰


    • August 2, 2016 at 10:18 am

      The first was definitely the best, though. And the Netflix series is very good too!
      Thanks! And I hope for glory, too. It’s that or a sore tummy 😦


  16. August 2, 2016 at 10:32 am

    Great answers, Ali. I like to have a bath but usually I shower. I save the bath for times when I’m feeling like having a bit of a pamper! Congratulations on your promotion. πŸ˜€


    • August 2, 2016 at 12:02 pm

      It’s nice to have something special for pampering time πŸ™‚

    Oh no! Those hot sauces and all look tempting. I’m never quite sure about pickle – maybe that’s what we put over a block of holiday cream cheese where I come from? Also enjoyed your list of cheerful movies πŸ˜›

    Missed you, doc,



    • August 3, 2016 at 5:39 am

      I forgot to mention your promotion. We will expect much more of you from now on, Sir Architect …. πŸ˜›


      • August 3, 2016 at 11:57 am

        Thanks! Ooh, the pressure πŸ™‚


    • August 3, 2016 at 11:56 am

      I love hot sauces!
      It doesn’t get more cheerful than watching a bunch of undead getting violently turned into sushi πŸ™‚


  18. August 9, 2016 at 11:03 am

    Congratulations on the promotion! Hope your future career in ‘architecture’ works well for you. πŸ™‚ Great answers all round, and I agree that early thirties is a good age.


    • August 9, 2016 at 12:53 pm

      Thanks, can’t wait to design the “next big thing” πŸ™‚


  19. September 6, 2016 at 6:24 am

    Out of all your movies… I have only seen the Star Wars ones???
