Do you prefer a bath or shower?
Shower. A bath never really ends up making me feel particularly clean. I just end up sweating a lot. Plus, I can’t afford to keep taking baths. I had a girlfriend once in the 90s who suddenly started taking a bath every day instead of a shower. She tripled my water bill 😦

What do you do to make a living or during the day? If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?
I work in IT. Computers and such. I say “have you tried switching it off and on again” a lot.

Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?
Oh boy, is there! This is yet another opportunity to show the most posted image on my blog – the lads!

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Nuffin’, init.

What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?
Have a nice nap at lunchtime. Which I’ve already had.

List at least five of your favourite spices? (excluding salt and pepper)
Oh no, I can’t have Salt N Peppa?

Okay then, in that case I’ll go for Sporty, Scary, Baby, Ginger and Posh.

What can you always be found with?
My phone. Map, calendar, email, camera, texts, authentication apps all in one. Oh yeah, it’s a phone too.

Oh, I don’t know. Let’s go for Christmas, shall we? Christmas inspired me. I was inspired by Christmas. I find running out of money and putting on ten stone highly inspiring.

Happy New Year 🙂

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?
They could help me out with the cleaning. Well, they wouldn’t be “helping me” as I don’t do it at all. They’d be doing it all themselves.

If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?
I’m assuming the “furnishings” include TV and whatnot so I guess it would be personal things I would be bringing. I have some photos and some artwork from my friends’ kids so that would all come. I have a load of photos in albums which haven’t been scanned so they would need to come too. Then of course there’s “the lads”.

What calms you down?
Reading and watching TV. Anything which takes me away from “the real life”, which is presumably why I’m not calm in the first place.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I appreciated Lemsip and similar this week. Kept me going and functional 🙂

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?
That’s an easy question. All of them. The trouble is, the longer I leave them the longer they take. That doesn’t stop me leaving them as long as possible, though. I always have great plans to keep on top of it all but it never really pans out.

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
I don’t ever really feel “passionate and alive”. I’m usually more “even keel”.

How many times have you moved in the last ten years?
Twice, once into a little rented flat as a temporary measure which lasted five and a half years, and then nearly four years ago into my first ever owned house 🙂

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
Okay then, let’s give InspiroBot another whirl.

“Try to be the reason a man gets torn apart by owls.”

Wow, that’s pretty random. Sounds pretty profound, though.

Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?
None of those. I have my living room for all that. I’ll take a home cinema, please. Big screen, massive sound system, comfy chairs and a great big load of sound-proofing.

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)
It’s Sunday and I don’t have anything specific planned, so I guess there’s a chance of some sunshine. Then I’ll remember all the things I have to do before Christmas and there’ll be a sudden squall.

If you could witness or physically attend any event past, present or future, what would it be?
Hmm. I think a week last Thursday. What a day. What a day.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
I’ve decided to give InsproBot a Christmas break and thus remain uninspired.

If you were having difficulty on an important test and could safely cheat by looking at someone else’s paper, would you do so?
I hope not. The temptation would probably be there but I would hope not to succumb. I also hope that I won’t need to take any more tests in my life 🙂

What things in nature do you find most beautiful?

Complete this sentence: When I travel I love to…
Get home again 🙂

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
Guru InspiroBot says…

“Ride the dreams”

Yeah!

Do you ever sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes?
I doubt it. Ten minutes is quite a long time to be just sitting there. I might sit a little bit if there’s a nice view but generally I’ll start walking again fairly soon.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles, turn on the flashlight or use your cell phone for light?
There was a storm a few weeks ago and the electricity did go out, from half past midnight to half past five. When I woke in the night, I used my mobile phone to go downstairs to find the torch. Then I remembered I had one in my bedside table. Then I set the alarm on my phone as obviously Alexa was down.

Fortunately when the power came back it was almost time to get up, as the default setting for WiFi lights after a power cut is “on”, so there was no getting back to sleep then.

Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?
Not wishing to seem selfish but I’ll take the money, please. Strangers will only waste it on frivolous knick-knacks whereas I would spend it on vital and important stuff like PlayStation games.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Go, InspiroBot, go!

“An illusion causes Dimethyltryptamine.”

See, that’s pretty clever. It’s more the other way round, so InspiroBot is urging us to think of the world in a different way, to challenge everything we think we know.

Or it’s talking nonsense again.

Would you rather take a 2 week vacation with an organised tour or take a cruise of your choice?
I’d like to have both options simultaneously, please. So there are organised bits and I can pick and choose and if I want to go off and do my own thing I can. That way I’m not pressured but there are things to do which are already all sorted out if I wish.

Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing?
Swinging? As a child?  Surely that’s more of an activity between consenting adults? Whayhay 🙂

Oh, wait. I see. I don’t think I’ve ever heard it called “swinging” before. We call it “playing on the swings”. Yes! It was fun! They should have adult-sized swings.

What is the most important thing that you ever learned ? (I bet it’s not something you learned in school)
Oh, who knows. Maybe I haven’t learned it yet. I’ll probably get a massive life-changing revelation just before I drop dead.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
Take it away, InspiroBot!

“With great sacrifice comes great sadness.”

Often true, I’m sure.

Sharing My World 2017 Week 45

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

Where do you eat breakfast?
Nowhere. My body seems to need a couple of hours before it can happily accept food. If I ate breakfast it would be at my desk at work, as typically I’m at work around an hour and twenty minutes after the alarm goes off.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want to have an evening with?
It doesn’t say “alive or dead”, but I’m going to go with Hitler.

I would prepare a nice meal catering to his German tastes (or Austrian or whatever). We’d have a chat and I’d turn the conversation to politics. After dessert I’d offer him coffee to round off the meal and, having absorbed his view of the world, I’d then take the opportunity to kick the ever-living shit out of the racist homicidal maniacal asshat.

Next week – my brunch date with Saddam Hussein.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?
If I could be a tree or a plant, I’d turn the “opportunity” down, thanks. If I had no choice I guess I’d be a cactus. One of those flowering ones. Then when people come to admire and poke me they’d get a nasty needle in the finger. A plant’s gotta have some fun.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Nothing really happened this week. So I’ll post another thought-provoking quote from InspiroBot.

“If someone can live through the afterlife, they can also stabilise wild animals.”

What? What? What does that mean? Does that even make any sense? Obviously that’s too deep for me.
