Sharing My World 24-08-2020

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World, this week co-hosted by Roger Shipp who has provided Harry Potter-themed questions.

One of my favourite gifts that Harry Potter received came from the Weasley Twins; and was “Mrs. Mooney’s Marauder’s Map”. This magical document showed every classroom, hallway and secret corner in all of Hogwarts. It also showed you the location- by name- of every person in Hogwarts. If you had such a magical map of your town, what would you use it for? If you would not use it, is there another person to whom you would gift it?
I would have liked one of my school way back when. I don’t know what I’d do with one of my town. It would be quite useful for burglars! Maybe I’d gift it to the police, that would be a very useful intelligence tool.

When was the last time you made a snowball? Were in a snowball fight?
Way back when I was a kid. We don’t get much snow down here, and it doesn’t stay “usable” for long.

Many cultures set great value in each child of the family having godparents. Did you have godparents? Are you a godparent yourself?
I did have godparents though I can’t remember them. I am a godparent to a toddler.

You have found a secret tunnel under your house. Where does it go?
It goes to the Dralicave, of course. My secret base from which I secretly control the world bwahahaha.

Is intelligence or wisdom more useful?
Wisdom comes first. Intelligence without wisdom can be dangerous.

How important is play in living a healthy and fulfilling life?
It depends on the “play”. Although PlayStation has the word “play” in it, I don’t think it’s making me any healthier…

Is happiness just chemicals flowing through your brain or something more?
The actual feeling is chemicals, just like everything else. You have to get yourself into that state to get the “happy” chemicals flowing, though.

    Do you have a special Draliecar or does your regular car fill-in? Do you wear a cape and mask? Just curious. 🙂 — Suzanne

      It looks like a regular car until I press a special button… 🙂

    You shouldn’t have told us where your secret cave is! Now we know where to find you. 😉

      I’m always ready with tea and biscuits for visitors to my top secret hideaway 🙂

    Yea, my “play” isn’t very healthy either :/

    Very wise answers! Now that I know where the Dralicave is (saw it on the map) I’ll stop by. 😀

      It’s beginning to sound like we’ll be having a party! Socially distanced, of course 🙂

    Aha! So we have you to blame for the world going to pot! Now the resistance knows who to target, and with this map that was kindly provided to the police, how to find you!

      Dang. Where did I put that self-destruct button…?


  6. August 30, 2020 at 3:39 pm

    So you’re to blame for the state of the world! Good answers, Ali. 😁

    Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your World. I hope that bat *koff koff* DRALIcave is big, because it sounds like the world will now be beating a path to that place! I’m really happy you played today btw..

      It’s huuuge 🙂 Room for everyone!

    Is the Dralicave anything like the “Hall of the Mountain King?” You know, now that I think about it, Grieg’s music would fit right in there while you PlayStationed away 😀


    • August 31, 2020 at 3:43 pm

      “Hall of the Mountain King” for the fight scenes, “Morning” for the travel from quest to quest 🙂

    I agree- the secret map would have been far more fun as a kid. But then, if the secret map existed, and someone else had it, they would know where you secret cave entrance was hidden!

    Sorry, I got around late this week, but I guess “better late than never.” I am so glad you tried the Potter questions. Hope to see you next week.

    If I ever get an invite to visit the Dralicave, I’ll bring cheese and chocolate! 🙂

      Has someone on TV stolen my idea for a cave hideaway? 😉

    After all this publicity your Dralicave has just received, I think you now need to find a new site for it – and destroy that telltale map. 😀

      There’s an extinct volcano I’ve had my eye on for some time 🙂
