Share Your World – Week 72

Just a random image I pulled from my blog’s past of my sister’s cat.

It’s Thursday, so let’s get right into Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week…

What’s something you really resent paying for?

My $12,000 plumbing job last Christmas, maybe…

They should have at least let me keep the wheelbarrow to chase the cats with…

What was the most unsettling film you’ve seen?

Outside of when I was a kid, I’ve rarely watched movies.  My Mom was (and still is, apparently, despite living alone) a big fan of horror movies… and growing up in the 80s’, that meant I was exposed to a lot of those campy slasher film franchises that dominated the decade.  A Nightmare On Elm Street alone gave me a fear of the dark that didn’t fully go away until I was well into my 20’s…

You think I’m scary? Hey, don’t judge me because of my skin defects, kid!

Do you judge people?

This question comes up so often in just about any kind of exercise like this… and my answer will always remain the same.  We all judge people.  Judging others based on limited and generalized information is a human condition none of us are immune to.  Those who believe they don’t judge other people are either in denial, or to paraphrase a popular saying, just believe that their judgments don’t stink…

Rainy’s judgments all stink… and that’s how she likes it.

Finish this sentence:  “Back in my day, we…”?

Had more rational irrational fears about our world…. like nuclear annihilation and contracting AIDS from infected mosquitoes.

And we didn’t feel the need to meme about it, either…

Please feel free to share an uplifting photo, thought or meme to show your own gratitude.

I’ll pass.  But here’s an image of Ringo Starr sharing some latitude…

Gratitude don’t come easy. You know it don’t come easy…

  1. ha the kids of the 80’s have a sense for real horror (and we had no clue what horror this year brought to us )

    I judge people but I don’t often share my opinion. That’s really the crux of it. Accept what you’re doing, then have some manners. Not everything I think needs to be made public.

  3. Thanks E.S. for Sharing Your World. Freddy tended to give me the willies too, not that I ever saw any of the films until I was in my 30s. I always privately wondered how that guy ever wiped his hiney with those claws..? Inquiring minds. 😆 I agree that the cost of your plumbing issues was too high, but what would one pay for the privilege (and it is a privilege. Just ask anyone who ever used an outhouse) of using your own private facilities, where one can be assured that no invasions of the spider kind invade the proceedings. I once heard an old joke about plumbers (paraphrased because my memory don’t work so good all the time) where someone was grousing about how plumbers were just expensive people who knew how to unstop a drain and the plumber replied “It’s knowing how to make the water go where you want it to that’s the expensive part!” Anyone who has ever had a flood because the bog backed up is usually happy to pay someone else to take care of it. *ew*.

    • I am always amazed at how running water and drains actually work. I certainly won’t argue that plumbers are magicians… but it would be nice if they could have went through my kitchen floor with a magic wand rather than a jackhammer…

  4. Ooh, at first I thought you have
    a photo of a bear, what a great bearcat you sister has!
    Horror movies were better at that time, now we are immunes to them. If you look carefully you will see Finland on the left side of Ringo’s globe.

    • Her cat is interesting. Both of my black cats are/were interesting in their own ways too. There is something about them…

      I did notice where the globe was turned to, although it didn’t occur to me that Finland wa exposed. When I was in school, I could draw a pretty good freehand map of Cold War era Europe, but the countries have changed so much since then…

    Got to pay your dues if you wanna snort cocaine…

  6. I haven’t seen a Freddy movie yet…..yeah I know – I’m a crowd of one. Anyway, I don’t have a problem with horror – I’ve lived 72 years and that proves it……right?

    A Nightmare On Elm Street was clever in that it all took place in dreams…

  8. Trisha says:

    I occasionally became convinced Freddie was under my bed or in my closet until I was well in to my 20’s. In my 30’s, I was afraid Samara from The Ring was going to crawl out of the TV. Now I just fear stepping on a big, nasty spider on my way to the bathroom.
