Share Your World – Week 17

We’re a third of the way through 2019 now. Which means Baby New Year’s currently a thirty-something.

If it’s Tuesday, that can only mean two things.  First, it’s time for Wimpy to pay us back for that Impossible Whopper we bought him last week.  And second, it’s time for The Nest to share its weird and wacky world by answering Melanie’s weekly Share Your World questions!  Aren’t you excited?  I sure am!  Hell, I’m more excited than a dog in a leg lamp factory.  Logo, front and center!

“World” is a very odd word. Just look at it and keep saying it out loud. There’s something not right about it…

If you could interview anyone from your life living or dead, but not a celebrity, who would it be and why?

Do my Shelf critters count as celebrities?  I’d say with the scant readership of my blog, probably not.  There are random stormtroopers from Star Wars who are more famous than any of my gang.  Let’s interview Fuzzywig since he seems to live a very interesting life for an inanimate object.

Hi there, Fuzzy!  Do you mind if I call you Fuzzy?

FUZZYWIG: What, man?

Nevermind… so, my first question…

FUZZYWIG: Mind if I smoke, dude?  It’s… you know.  THAT time.

You know, I really don’t like to have The Nest smelling like a Grateful Dead concert.

FUZZYWIG: And you would know what a Grateful Dead concert smells like because….????

Argh!  OK, one question… if…. um….. you could interview anyone in your life other than a celebrity, who would it be?

FUZZYWIG: Eh, probably my good buddy Chip.  I’d press him for why he’s such a dweeb.

CHIP: I’d rather be a sober and lucid dweeb than a stoned doofus anyday.

FUZZYWIG: Way to avoid the question there, dweeb.

Dammit, I’d probably get a more interesting interview out of Mr. Fox….

As a child, did you have a nickname?  Did you carry that with you throughout life or was it only in childhood that you used it?

I had a rather unfortunate nickname that got slapped on my in junior high that carried on through my high school years which I will not mention… nor did I recognize at the time, which kinda pissed off the tormentors.  Other than that, among family I’m still “Billy” since I came from a family of Bills.  Speaking of celebrities…. there sure are a lot of famous Billys, aren’t there?

It wasn’t long after Billy Mays went to that great big infomercial in the sky that I stopped watching TV. Coincidence?

Give us three words that describe you

If there are three words that better describe my philosophy on life, I don’t know what they’d be…

Sneaking into a second movie at the theater (if you go to a movie house)?  Is that wrong or just harmless ‘fun’?

The last time I was in a theater, this was playing…

And Michael Keaton is probably still in the waiting room of purgatory 31 years later.

I still remember the movie playing in the second screening room on that day…

Starring Buster Possum as every guy who gets kicked in the throat by Jean Claude Van Damme.

Not my kind of entertainment… though for some….

I wanna see you try to kick her out of the theater…

If you had a time machine would you go back to the past or forward into the future?  Why?

I’m a retro person myself, so I’d always vote for the past.  The future would be too weird, and in ways you would never expect.  2004 me would freak out if he came to 2019 and saw people walking around while looking at some strange, flat devices and not making eye contact.  I would wonder why I’m playing with my dolls on a blog and taking pictures of squirrels and assume at some point I suffered some kind of mental breakdown.  At least I would be happy to see that my Mecca is still in business and thriving since everyone said way back then that brick and mortar stores would be a thing of the past by the start of this current decade…

2004 me would also wonder why this guy is still on TV. Wait….. we did WHAT!?!?!?

What were you thankful for during April?

That it actually felt like Spring during most of the month rather than just an extension of winter like last year.  Also, that I didn’t drown in all the rain….

Rainy is not thankful that I didn’t let her go out and enjoy it…

  1. We are tired of the rain in TX also… and I am afraid all of the snow that came your way will still make it down through the rivers and streams. We were in Detroit last April because our best friend’s dad passed away. It had been in the 50s the week before but when we got there? Snow and ice! Thank you mother nature! ugh.
    Hope you are well “Billy” 😉

    • The snow was a bit farther north than us, though we’re seeing a lot of it now in our rivers. About 3 more inches of rain this week along with storms… I think I was the only one who enjoyed our summer a few years ago where it was dry and 100 every day!

      • I will never complain about the heat. The drought we had in 2012 created some issues we are still dealing with that though. We have lost several trees. It’s either rain or drought… but that white stuff is E.V.I.L. If I never see another snowflake I would be perfectly happy!!

    But if you go back in time wouldn’t you run the risk of finding yourself with those kids who had the nickname for you that you don’t acknowledge? This seems like a distinct possibility to me. Just saying… could be a mistake.

    • I don’t know if I’d go all the way back to childhood… but I’d still pick any location in the past over the future. Known quantities entice me more than the unknowns…

  3. These posts always end up surprising me in some fashion. You are such an enigma. In a good way. 😇

  4. Thanks E.S. for Sharing Your unique Koff koff damned weird koff koff koff World with everyone. (and no that’s not bullying. I’m just really incredibly glad to have met someone whose vision is as warped as mine is). I saw a movie recently (in my home…I don’t think this particular movie ever made it to any theater anywhere) that featured Owen Wilson getting stoned the entire time. Funny. I should have realized he liked a little toke now and again…I mean his voice is a dead giveaway..

    • You mean there’s a real life Fuzzywig who does nothing but get stoned all the time? And he’s actually making money off that gig? Nice work if you can get it. And thanks for letting me be myself with these questions… I think there are some people who would have distanced themselves from me invoking my weirdness on their blog challenge by now!

  5. A further look into the life and mind of the Squirrel named Billy……well, I must agree with you about much of these things you’ve divulged – I prefer the past to the somewhat scary future, I believe the last movie in a theater I saw was one of the very old James Bond films – movies these days seem to be mostly for kids and I haven’t been one of those in a very long time. We’re having our first actual SPRING in years – I’d forgotten what it was like ! Thanks for another peek into the Nest.


    • I would prefer actual SPRING without all the stupid RAIN. It’s not much good having moderate temperatures if you need scuba gear to go outside and enjoy it in!

  6. I’m just glad the basement didn’t flood!

    • I’m glad I don’t have a basement. Almost all of the basements in this town leak. Anytime there is a lot of rain, our sales of Shop Vacs and sump pumps go through the roof…

    I’d interview Snuggle. I’d love to know what goes on in his twisted furry head…

  8. Trisha says:

    What?!?! You didn’t let Rainy go out to enjoy the rain after she’s waited so long for her gauge to fill up? Well, the upside of that is that she’ll keep being her grumpy, sassy self. The Shelf wouldn’t be the same without her attitude! I never had a nickname that was widespread in use. A few girls on my softball team called me Trish the Dish and a few girls in my class called me Trasha, which, looking back, I totally deserved!

    • I had a rain gauge stolen from our yard when I was growing up, and it pissed me off! Rainy is too unique to be sitting outside waiting for some other skunk rain gauge lover to come by and swoop her up. She’s probably plenty grumpy that she hasn’t got to spray anyone in the last few SCT episodes… and it might be me who gets it!

      LOL, Trasha! I had a real weird nickname on my Little League team “Billy Board” that I never understood. I guess on sports teams, you have to have a nickname even if it makes no sense…
