Share Your World – Week 59

Shadow’s sign gets messier and messier every year. But you gotta admire his commitment to recycling…

The first few entries in this year’s Contest of Whatever have already started trickling in!  Be sure to check the pingbacks to see what the cool kids have come up with so far… and don’t forget to get YOUR entry in by next Thursday night!  Yes, you CAN and SHOULD do this!  Don’t be such a square.

Now that the shameless plug is out of the way, it’s world sharing time!  For the second day in a row, we’re going to link to Melanie’s SYW questions for this week, and this time we’ll actually do the thing rather than just screw around…

This is sooooo 2019.

How can someone win a gold star (i.e. win your approval and/or admiration) with you?

Being yourself, not taking yourself too seriously, and having a very loose sense of humor is nice.  Otherwise, I’m probably not going to want to hang with you…

What do you mean you don’t want to hang with me?

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

I’d probably grow roots to this chair at my computer desk, even though there’s plenty of more productive things I could spend the extra time on…

Like maybe cleaning the compost pile off my computer desk…

Do you have a favorite type of exercise?

Most of my exercise comes at work… and I’m not sure any of it would be considered “favorite.”  I’ll count my weekly bowling night for this one…

Yes sir, I have 16 pound balls! What do you mean do I walk funny?

Do you sleep with a top sheet? Why or why not?

I tried to look this up on Google, and I’m still not sure exactly which piece of bedding is considered the “top sheet.”  I think it’s supposed to be the flat sheet that you can cover with, as opposed to the fitted sheet you sleep on that doesn’t actually fit to any size human bed.

I think it’s impossible to get all four corners tucked in at the same time…

So if my assumption is correct…. yes, I do use a top sheet.  But no, I don’t use it for its intended purpose.  As someone who’s slept days for over two decades now, I need something over my eyes to keep out the light.  I used to use a pillowcase to drape over my eyes.  But now…. yep, it’s my unused top sheet.  Seriously, who actually covers with those things, and why?  And what use is that little strip of sheet they put over the front of hotel beds if it isn’t for putting over your eyes?  I’m so used to having a makeshift eye mask when I sleep, that even at night I need a cover on my eyes…

I hope I remembered to lock the cats out…

This is your space to write about anything you’d like.   I’m GRATEFUL for your participation in Share Your World, so there’s the “gratitude” hook.

I’m GRATEFUL to have something to write about every week.  I’ll be even more GRATEFUL if there’s a bunch of Contest of Whatever entries to judge next week…

  1. I’m sure you will get some last minute entries……yeah…..I’m using my psychic powers right now and – yep – I see more entries coming……Patience is a virtue.


  2. Thanks E.S. for Sharing Your World, amusing us ALL, and giving us a C.O.W. to participate in! You’re a busy fella! That squirrel in the top photo there defies gravity. Amazing, but maybe not so much if one remembers squirrels have nifty climbing gear built right in!

    Bowling is one of those activities that seems to on the wane. I’m impressed you even have any lanes near you, ours are long gone. Funny I hadn’t thought about that until now.

    • There were two bowling centers in my town when I was growing up. One closed, briefly reopened, then closed down again and has been a bingo hall for many years. The other, where I bowled, suddenly closed down in the middle of leagues 8 years ago… and the company that owned it sold the building only under the condition that whoever bought it wouldn’t revive it as a bowling alley (Why, I don’t know since they were the only lanes for 10 miles around). Now I bowl at that closest place a couple towns over… which is family run, but they know they’ve got a virtual monopoly on bowling in my area and take advantage of those of us who still enjoy bowling. Too bad, because it’s a fun activity…

  4. bowling is the best sport… we play it every day with our bowls… and we hope for the superbowl once with lobster inside…

  5. You need an “interesting” life. Goodness I haven’t been in a bowling alley in…I can’t even remember, it’s been so long. Now I’ll have to check and see if there are any around here.

  6. After YEARS of trying to keep the sun out of my eyes, I went berserk and bought a pair of black silk eye covers. They are comfortable, not scratchy AND THEY KEEPT HE SUN OUT OF MY EYES. The two items cost me about $7 and I swear I don’t know how I lived without them. Sometimes it’s those little purchases that make a huge difference in life. They make much fancier ones, but these are simple and they are silk, so they aren’t itchy. Try it! It’s a HUGE improvement.

    • I actually kinda like the sheet over my eyes. It’s gotten to the point where even at night, I need the feel of something over my eyes to be able to sleep. Like the box fan humming away, I can’t sleep without it…

    My entry is in, though I don’t know if you’ll be particularly grateful about that.
    Sounds like you need blackout curtains.

  8. I missed the deadline because I couldn’t think of anything. I’m developing old-timers…or suffering from sugar withdrawal post-Christmas. 😦
