What household chore do you absolutely enjoy doing? (can be indoor or outdoor)
Chore? Enjoy? Do? Does not compute. Does not compute.

I don’t enjoy doing any chores, let alone “absolutely enjoy”.

The second dictionary definition of “chore” is “a tedious but necessary task”. I usually find a way to make chores less “necessary”.

Create a sentence with the words “neon green” and train”.
I like to keep fit, and always train in neon green spandex.

There’s an image your imagination can never unsee bwahahaha.

Other than your mobile phone what can you always be found with?
My wallet. With a phone and money you can usually get out of any unforeseen emergency situation.

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

Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some…
… hot sauce.

What is your least favourite candy?
Liquorice. ‘Tis indeed the devil’s food.

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?
Libra. And no. I once had a read of the traits of a Libran, and I was amazed! A lot of it was me! Then I read the traits of the other signs. And I was amazed! A lot of it was me too!

This stuff, and horoscopes, are like a self-fulfilling prophecy. Once you’ve read it you find a way to make it true, or see it in yourself.

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

If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)
Wow, $22 million dollars! But which country’s dollars? Knowing my luck it’s Zimbabwe dollars. So that’s just under GB£45,000. A “dream question”? Mine’s turned into a nightmare, I got lumbered with dodgy currency. That’s just bloody typical.

I’ll use it to pay off some of my mortgage. I can only hope it wasn’t the old pre-2009 Zimbabwe dollar. I just checked and you can buy 100 trillion of those for £1.50 on eBay 🙂

In what do you find the simplest of joys?
Nothing in this life seems to be particularly simple. I suppose something very uncomplicated, away from everyday life, like sitting by a babbling brook.

That’s more contentment than joy, though.

What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?
I don’t know, I don’t really care about birthday presents. Maybe I’ll have the $22m from the first question in a more worthwhile sort of dollar, like AUD or USD.

Do you use paper money? If so is your money organised sequentially according to denomination?
You have to use paper money in my business. It can’t be traceable. It can’t lead back to you. Paper money. Or Bitcoins.

No, wait, I work in IT. I’m not a mobster. Forget I said anything. IT, got it?

I always make sure I have some paper money in my wallet and change in my pocket. You never know when you might need it. Everything and everyone is NOT set up for a cashless society. Try buying a 99 with hundreds and thousands from the ice cream van using a credit card.

Just a few weeks ago the card readers were down at the petrol station. Fortunately, I had cash to pay with! And yes, it’s organised by denomination (though I usually only have tenners and fivers).

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?
Am I? No, I’m not. Just sitting there, doing nothing at all? I don’t think so.

What is your greatest strength?
Ooh, I don’t have any. Or they’re all equally strong. Or not strong. One of those.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
My wild garden has begun to bloom.

It’s not supposed to be a wild garden. I just haven’t done any gardening.

I took this photo a few minutes ago, just before 7am. It’s supposed to reach 20 degrees later on, but right now it’s bloody cold.

If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?
Hmm, is chocolate food? I would say “pizzas” but I wouldn’t want any of those shop-bought ones. Maybe an endless supply of Indian takeaways.

List at least five movies or books that cheer you up.
Well, there nothing like a good slaughter-fest to make me laugh. There’s “Planet Terror”, that’s fun. Then “John Wick”. I recently watched “John Wick 2” so I’m adding that to the list. There’s this great bit where he whips his car around and catapults a hoodlum into a reinforced pillar. I laughed so hard I nearly wet myself. “Guardians of the Galaxy” 1 and 2 and “Thor Ragnarok”.

If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?
I wouldn’t see them doing anything as there’s just me and apparently now I’m a mouse. Somebody left the TV on, though.

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World. Short one this week!

share-your-world2

List things or events that changed your life
Well, everything. Almost every single thing I’ve done has changed my life in some way. Every decision has consequences, no matter how small (dum dum DUM).

Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…
… a bird on a plane. On a plain. On some grass. Dammit.

What genre of music do you like?
Lots. Pop stuff like Dragonette. Harder stuff like Iron Maiden. Old stuff like Abba. No classical stuff, no rap, no hip hop and no dance though.

Been anywhere recently for the first time?
Usually the answer would be no, but on this occasion, yes! My usual doctor’s surgery was full so I had to go to a satellite surgery. Exciting stuff! It was the same 5 minute drive but, and here’s the interesting bit, in the other direction.

Phew. Real seat-of-your-pants stuff.

List three favourite book characters.
Stephanie Plum, Kate Daniels and Kylara Vatta.

What is your favourite non alcoholic drink: hot or cold?
Tesco fizzy lemonade. I’ll see if I can find the picture I took last time we had this question. Once sec.

Ta-da!

Lemonade and Coke

Mmmm. Nearly no calories of tasty refreshment.
