How fun! Another week of Cee’s Share Your World, one of my favorite blogging challenges. I don’t know how she does it, but Cee not only blogs multiple times every day, sharing terrific photos, she also comes up with some cool questions. Here are the latest. I hope my snake-like attitude tonight doesn’t pop up in every answer!
What is something that people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of? I have erased many topics on this one, mostly because I don’t want to offend someone who adores whatever. I DO get the point of them but simply don’t care much about celebrity culture and current fashion trends. I don’t spend much time on social media, either, because it’s not a priority. If I have any time that isn’t scheduled, I’d prefer to read.
What quirky things do people do where you are from? I guess I’m from North Carolina now, so bickering about basketball and football allegiances is huge in this area. The Tar Heels and Blue Devils are major rivals; be careful what kind of bumper sticker you have when driving through Chapel Hill or Durham!
What are some things you wish you could unlearn? There are some social non-graces I’d like to undo or simply relearn. I’m not a good listener unless I work at it. My “filter” is often compromised and I say the first thing that comes to mind. Ouch. I work hard at not being critical, but I was raised with such harshness and cruelty that my deep-inside default is often negative. Like tonight.
Who is someone that you miss having in your life? No one comes to mind. My dearest teaching widower (aka psychologist) says I have an attachment disorder. I’m OK with that because I’d rather read. Yep, I’m a bit grouchy this evening. This critter and I got into it today. I mean, seriously? Get off the BIRD feeder, you rascal.
