It’s time once again to share my world with you, my
captives readers. But before I do so, I’d like to say thank you for visiting my little bloggy corner of the ‘net, where I can talk your ears off I wanted to, while you, with the option to leave whenever you feel like it, take the time to click ‘like’ or write down a comment. Thank you.
So without further ado, here’s my world – so far this week.
Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets?
I’m a huge fan of The X-Files, Star Trek and the original Star Wars trilogy, so that should tell you enough. I believe, should be my simple answer. And I’m sure that what they might think about us would be quite interesting. They might even have the same issues we all have – like, does this make my butt look big?
What type of pet or pets do you not want to have?
I once thought I’d want a snake – a boa constrictor or a python. I thought it would go well with my real name, you know, Velvet the snake woman or something like that. But then life intervened to let me know the folly of my ways by having a real-life snake wrangler for a classmate in college. He shook his head and told me that as much as having a snake sounded like a nifty idea, he told me to “wait till you have to feed it live pet rats or mice, and hear the poor things scream (the rodents, not the snake) – or you can kill the rodents before you feed it to the snakes. Then, come back and tell me you still want a snake, and I’ll have no problem getting you one.”
I’d read enough of Silence of the Lambs to know what that is like to hear the screaming of, well, in that story, lambs. But to hear it at every mealtime for the benefit of a pet, no thank you.
If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Purple, baby. Although red suits me so much better.
What type of transportation would you be? Why?
I have to be honest here. While others might think themselves to be Porsche’s or Ferrari’s or Testarossa’s, I’d probably be a 1972 Volkswagen Beetle – oh, and automatic shift at that. That means that while it has the gear stick with the various 1st to 3rd gears, it has no clutch pedal.
Weird, I know, but get this. Unique and often hard to come by (in working condition) – check. 0 to 60 in ten minutes – check. Could break down at any minute – check.
Yep. Sounds pretty much like me.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last Saturday night, I had a major allergy attack that surprised me – puffy eyes and tingling puffy lips. Angioedema is the proper word for it. Unfortunately, I had no antihistamine in the house – not a single pill of Benadryl or Zyrtec. I did have my albuterol inhaler and so when I was having difficulty breathing in addition to the itchy feeling under the skin (no hives in sight), I used the inhaler and then told hubby to go to the drugstore at 1 am to get me Benadryl. It could have been worse, but thank goodness, despite my ignorance about MSG allergy, it wasn’t.
For the week coming up, I’m looking forward to being more organized because taxes are fast approaching. Because I sure as heck am not at the moment.
