Sharing My World 28-12-2020

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

Pick three words to describe this past year. (please keep them PG. Thanks).
Nice. And. Peaceful.

What were the best books you read this year? Or the best movie you saw?
Well, I can’t remember. Obviously I’ve read a lot of books and seen a lot of films, but I can’t remember what they all were. I would have been to the cinema, but that was February and I can’t remember what I saw. I expect it was very good, though!

More recently, I’ve watched Alita – Battle Angel, Ready Player One and Armageddon, each for at least the fifth time.

Because there was lots of time for looking inward, what is one big personal lesson you learned this past year?
I didn’t have a lot of time for looking inward, I was busier than ever.

Do you think Covid has strengthened or weakened societal bonds?
Initially, strengthened. Then people got fed up, reverted to type and started screwing each other over again (he said cynically).

      A good word, “and”, very useful…

        and you are quite right about ‘and’ πŸ™‚ just that sometimes ‘and’ is tricky when it means ‘end’.

      It’s never so peaceful as when people aren’t allowed to go anywhere πŸ™‚

    “And” is a lovely word that fits most any occasion…

    The last answer says it all AND then some, she wrote cynically. πŸ˜€

    Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your World and a tiny portion of snark with it! *AND* Your answers were, as usual, erudite, polite *AND* to the point! Well done and Happy New Year (belatedly)…

      A Happy New Year to you too πŸ™‚

    Sadly, I have to agree with your last answer!

    Is it the working from home that has given you this sense of peace?

    I had a Peaceful Year as well, Draliman, until the introoders disturbed it in the And…Pawkisses for a Happy New Year. Let’s make it a better oneπŸΎπŸ˜½πŸ’ž

      A Happy New Year to you, Granny and Grandpaw too, Little Binky πŸ™‚

    Considering you’ve seen it five times, would you recommend “Ready Player One?” I’ve probably seen Armageddon five times too.


    • January 5, 2021 at 6:24 am

      I would, I think it’s great. In fact I was surprised it was Spielberg, it didn’t seem like his “usual” sort of thing.

    You, cynical? Never! πŸ˜‰

    Well,this week’s news kind of underlined that last answer.
