Share Your World: Club Introvert

I’ve recently discovered Share Your World challenges from reading DrAliman’s blog and figured, hey, that looks like fun!  So here’s my first foray into their weekly challenge, and let’s see how I do…


Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.

I can be vivacious if I want to – more if I’ve got some drink in me.  But I don’t really need it. 

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

I’d probably say that maybe 20 are living a more satisfying life than I am – especially if I were to base it on my FB friends…

If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture? Please describe.

I’d like to be a book that people can plop down on the grass or the soft ground to read, and lose themselves in whatever stories I carry within my pages.  In fact, I am rereading Marcel Proust’s “In Search for Lost Time” and finally ‘understood’ what he was talking about when he wrote about Combray coming to life from that cup of tea and the crumbs of Madeleine on his plate.  It was like, wow, in a you-have-to-read-it-to-understand-what-I-mean kinda way.

You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with?

I have just discovered Michael Fassbender and think he’s fascinating.  As long as it’s not, like forever, then I wouldn’t mind being trapped in an elevator with him.  He can sing, he can dance, and he can do bird calls and even motorcycle sound effects, so I don’t think I’d be bored. And I can tell him tall tales and crappy jokes in return.  I mean, as long as no one asks him who he’d want to be trapped in an elevator with, what more could a girl want?  (No,  you don’t need to answer that question…)


Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m actually grateful to be teaching again.  I was on a break for a few months and I didn’t realize how stir crazy I was getting being home with a 4-year old during the day and having to face endless chores around the house.  Anything but chores.

For the coming week, I’m looking forward to longer days as  Daylight Savings Time just started, and now the days last longer and I can work at getting healthier with more brisk walking and hopefully, even jogging.

    1. Thank you! I’ve been reading all the fun entries from Draliman that I figured I should give it a try 🙂 I forgot to add my post to your comments on your blog. Will do that right now.

  1. That was great fun to read, thank you. Trapped in an elevator, what a good question. I’m so cranky, I’m trying to decide if I’d want to be trapped with somebody who deserves to be read the riot act, or just trapped with somebody adorable.

  2. Great answers! It’s good that you’re teaching again.
    I thought maybe you’d want to be trapped in a lift with Lucas North, but I’m guessing he wouldn’t stay trapped for long 🙂

  3. I am replying very late but better late than never.
    If I were to describe myself with a word that begins with the same letter as my first name?
    That’s a hard one. It could be cranky. Or cantakerous. Maybe curmudgeonly.

    If I were a tree, I would want to be a book. If I really really had to be furniture, I would be a book-case.

    Of 100 people my age were chosen at random, I suspect more than 50% would be leading a more satisfying life than mine. Unless I was trapped in a elevator with Richard Armitage. That would change my feelings of life satisfaction. His too, I imagine (although maybe not in the same way 😉 😀 )

    What am I grateful for from last week? I’m grateful one of my friends drove me and my heavy load of shopping home.
    What am I looking forward to for next week? Nothing in particular.

    1. Great answers! I remember when one of my friends called me to help her transport this Christmas tree she bought at Home Depot. I had a convertible then and while it was a fun excursion – and a first for me to transport a tree in my car – I still remember all the pine needles afterwards 🙂

      Cranky, cantankerous, and curmudgeonly. Those words are giving me such interesting visions of you 😉

      1. Think of me as Slappy the Squirrel with internet access and a thing for actors who play in Tolkien-based movies 😉

      2. Except for the fact that I don’t have a nephew, am not a squirrel or a cartoon character and am not old enough to officially be a curmudgeon, it’s a perfect match 😉
