Cee’s Share Your World 2013: Week 28 ~

Wow!  I’m off the grid for just a week or so and I come back to Cee’s tough, thought-provoking questions in Share Your World!  Here we go:

 

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)  I think I would best be described as Happy dwarf.  At least, most of the time.  My 8th dwarf would be “Kinky”… no, I will not elaborate.

Would you travel into outer space?  I’m pretty sure I would not travel into outer space, not unless I could be wrapped up in Capt Kirk’s arms tight and safe and sound (the “new” Kirk, Chris Pine).  I’m deathly afraid of heights and I think I would possibly get claustrophobic on anything other than the Enterprise.

If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture?  Please describe.  I think I would want to be furniture.  I’m afraid, with all of the tablets and readers and electronic devices out there, books are going to become extinct.  That’s something I never want to have to worry about.  Unless the human race de-evolves into brain matter, we’re always going to need furniture to park our butts on.  Nothing like being wanted.

 

Which would you prefer:  a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?  I really have had my fill of adventure, intoxicating successes, but more likely stunning setbacks.  I’m liking “contented”, “secure”, “predictable” right now, and can’t get enough of my family.  I don’t need wide swings of fortune and mood anymore.  Keep me content and I’ll be your friend forever.

There you have it.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

Thanks for stopping by for a looksee.  Until next time,  TTFN ~

Cee’s Share Your World 2013: Week 9 ~

Cee’s questions for this week are:

How do you write: computer, longhand or other?   In today’s world, I do most of my writing by computer ~ but I prefer to write longhand and do so every chance I get.  I have been told I have wonderful handwriting.  Indeed, I began “practicing” my handwriting in 6th grade, and it does tend to be impressive.  (pats self on back!) 

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility:  If you could play any sport professionally what would it be?  Or if you can’t picture yourself playing sports, what is your favorite sport?  Any sport related to horseback riding.  I used to ride when I was in school, and owned horses.  They are an amazing animal, and I bonded with mine as many do with dogs and cats.  I think I’d like to ride in the Olympics, or any type of show jumping.

If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?   Quilting is my current love.  Not only does it allow me to release my creativity in endless ways, but also to make others happy with my creations.  What could be better than that?

What subject was your favorite in all of your schooling? Why?  Well, my entire high school years were devoted to “business”, as I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I graduated.  All of the many classes I took in relation to my degree are my favorites ~ I cannot pick just one, as they encompassed each other.  Typing and Shorthand were my absolute favorites.  I also had courses like Accounting, Business Math, Economics, Office Procedures and others.  One other “honorable mention” I want to put out there, because I’ve seen a couple other bloggers mention it, is that I loved English ~ because I am a grammar, spelling, punctuation obesessive/compulsive.

P.S ~ After almost 35 years of being out of school, I can still take Shorthand at about 120 wpm, and type around 130 wpm.  I do have occasion to use my Shorthand, and I type verbatim business meetings on a regular basis and then transcribe them.  Now THAT’s fast!

 

Thanks Cee!
