Share Your World – Week 90

No wonder Snuggle Bear suddenly jumped behind the shelf…

It’s been an interesting morning, to say the least.  I went out for a walk about two hours ago, and several police cars and a fire truck, all lights and sirens, whizzed by in the direction I was coming from.  By the time I made it back to my area, the main road going south was being blocked just past the street into my neighborhood.  I was curious, to say the least, what was going on… and trying to rubberneck around the blockade revealed nothing but empty road.

About a half hour after I made it back home, I heard more sirens… and this squad car SUV was stopped at the front of my cul-de-sac.  He knocked on one door, then made it up to the next house before he retreated to his vehicle.  The neighbors he’d talked to slowly, but surely, left their house.  Had he been ordered to evacuate us?  What the hell was going on?  And why was it aborted?  There are train tracks that run by the road that was blocked off (and they’re literally just 100 feet or so behind that house in the photo)… was there a derailment of something icky?

It beats me.  Whatever’s going on out there may still be going on for all I know.  While I ponder the potential demise of my corner of the world, I may as well get my answers for this week’s Share Your World questions out of the way!  I wouldn’t want to disappoint Melanie or co-host Roger…

Just in case everything blows up shortly…

Have you ever driven the wrong way on a one-way street? How did this come about?

I’d imagine we all have at some point, because road signs aren’t important and one way streets are stupid to begin with…

Oops! Well, at least nobody got hurt…

As a kid, did you ever decide to run away? Did you have a plan? Take a pet? Sandwiches?

No.  Home was my sanctuary, and even if there were time my parents or sisters annoyed me to no end, I feared the outside world even more…

Yeah, it looks rough out there. I think I’ll stay….. for now.

You suddenly found you have a hidden talent for playing a musical instrument. What musical instrument do you hope that accompanies your talent? Any particular song?

I would definitely want to become a master at playing the world’s tiniest violin.  I’d be sure to play many concerts for the people who bug the shit out of me…

Actually, it may be an even tinier viola.

Do you accessorize with jewelry?

Yeah, stop right there.  No.

Whatever, fruitcake.

What ingredients go into YOUR favorite salad?

Salad?  Dammit, I hate having to look up new words.  Let me consult the dictionary…..

Dafuq!?!?  People eat PLANTS!?!?!?

Uhhhhhh, sorry, no salads for me.

If you care to, share something that really irritates you.

I’ll pass, lest I piss off just about everybody who still reads my blog…

This squirrel finds fleas to be very irritating.

What are your favorite ‘lounging around the house’ items of clothing?

For the longest time, it was regular clothes for everything…. work, play, rest.  Then six years ago, I needed to get a stress test, and it was recommended I wear loose, comfortable clothes…. in other words, not my usual jeans.  So I bought a pair of sweat pants, and I eventually got into the habit of changing into them as soon as I got home from work in the mornings.  Now, I’ve almost always got them on around the house…… well, not right now, because, you know….

I may have to head for the hills at any moment.


Please feel free to share something about Autumn

The leaves look pretty, and….

Winter is coming.

  1. Hmm….mysterious activity in your community – maybe the couple who left their house after the cop visited were told “Uncle Raymond just broke out of prison and said he was going to VISIT you” – so they got out of Dodge (well…not Dodge but you know) when they could. Yeah I know – I have a vivid imagination at times. It helps when you write a daily blog – right?


    • Uncle Raymond might have a hard time finding them since they just moved into that house about a month ago… though maybe he has good sources on “the outside.” Hmmmm, maybe that was why they moved in the first place…

  2. I hope everything is ok in your hood… but i laughed so hard as I read the caption about snuggle bear that I spat on my keyboard… while I ate rice wafers… how to get the awful pieces out of the small gaps?

  3. Must be the season for sirens; they’ve been blasting around my hood the past two days as well. With temps hitting 90 for the next couple of days, I can only pray winter is coming. Will this crap summer ever just go the heck away?

    I hope everything is okay over there! If they were only evacuating certain neighbours, presumably there’s a huge asteroid on the way and they were drawn in the secret “who gets to live” lottery…
    Streets go in both directions, why shouldn’t we?

    • I’m sure I not only wouldn’t win that lottery, but they’d send a death squad to my door to make sure I didn’t survive and take away precious resources. If only I lived on a one way street where “they” couldn’t get to me, but I could legally flee….

    No jewelry, no salad… who are you? It’s like this week’s questions did not have you in mind.

  6. Thanks Bill for serving us a very tasty Share Your World (nuts, nuts, and more nuts) with a show to boot! Dinner & a ‘movie’…wow! High class entertainment given that most of us hunker in our homes (not because the cops tell us we HAVE to though, well not YET); and have had to let go of simple pleasures like dinner and a movie… (respectful moment of silence for those little precious things we might have taken for granted pre stupid ass virus). I just have one further comment on E.S’s World o’ Nutty Joy…. Will you be serving WHINE with that little teeny violin/viola? Bon appetit!

  7. Has anyone suggested you learn to play the nose flute?
