Share Your World – Week 120

Happy Earth Day from The Nest!

My tribute to the only day to recognize one of our nine (yes, NINE!) planets six years ago is certainly one of the better entries from my 281 week run of Evil Squirrel’s Nest, the comic strip… and a visual illustration of the universal truth that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  I certainly don’t help matters since The Nest generates enough toxic waste on this blog to poison an entire solar system, which speaking of……..

Let’s get right into this week’s World Sharing!  Questions, as always, by Mother Nature herself, Melanie

Time to take this planet to the laundromat…

What was the last TV show you binge-watched?   If you don’t watch TV (congratulations by the way) what’s the last thing you binged ON?

My television set (Does anyone even use that word for these flat screened monstrosities these days?) hasn’t been in the ON position since I ditched my cable two years ago.  Over two decades ago when some stations began airing their reruns in extended blocks of the same show, I thought it was a stupid concept and still do now that people can binge watch whatever they want whenever they want.

However, if I was to binge watch a show, it would have to contain comedy….

Action…

Drama…

Romance…

Gratuitous violence…

Witty dialogue…

And is a fucked up mess…

If only there was a TV show that you could binge watch that had all of those qualities….

Television the whole family can enjoy!

What’s your most prized possession and why?

This is an impossible question to ask of a hoarder such as myself.  I’m pretty attached to just about everything I have…

Yeah, I didn’t figure you’d answer me. Isn’t it feeding time yet?

If you had the time and inclination, what would you volunteer for?

I tend to be stingy with my time, and pretty apathetic towards charity and other “good causes.”  But I remember back in the days when I used to regularly play bingo that I always thought it would be fun to be the caller (And like everyone else working at the bingo, they’re just volunteers for whatever cause is raking in the profits that night).  Having a bunch of old ladies hate your guts and yell at you because you didn’t call their numbers, or them getting angry that the machine kept drawing the same numbers over and over because regular people don’t understand how randomness actually works.  I think I’d gleefully enjoy pissing people off from behind my mixer on high…

Blame your lucky trolls, not the caller, toots…

Do you think that humans will ever be able to live together in harmony?

As long as people continue to be different, there isn’t a chance in hell.  Nobody truly, deep down, likes people who they deem to be TOO different from them, and we ALL fall into this trap… it’s human nature.

Can’t we all just get along?

Gratitude Section:

I was pleasantly surprised to discover during yesterday’s appointment that the local hospital (and thus my doctor) are now back in Mecca’s insurance network… so now he can ring up all the charges he wants and it’s all included in my co-pay!

Go to town, doc!

  1. I LOVE the can we not all get along photo… that’s the way we can, right?

    • 99.99% of everyone can agree on killing Buster! Some hermit living in the Himalayas is probably the only one who’d disagree…

      • franhunne4u says:

        I do strongly disagree with killing Buster. Strongly, I let you know! The poor … uhm … thing … Possums are cute. While poor little naive Buster who doesn’t do harm to anyone gets always killed, the pedobear gets rewarded all the time – well, apart from the episodes where he meets Scrat. And the fraudulent Chinese buffet maker, who violates every little code of hygiene is never punished, either.

        *weeps*

        The skunk should be punished for harrassement, CPS should get the two children from the Bimbocorn, the squirrel mom should also meet her fate for criminal neglect of her brood – but all you ever do is kill Buster. In the most painful ways
        *weeps louder*

        We have an election fraud who needs to go behind bars – and what do you do – you kill Buster.

        *sobs uncontrollably*

        Poor Bu-u- *hiccups* uster

        And I am not a hermit and have never laid my eyes on the Himalayas.

      • Just proving that life on the Shelf is just as unfair as it is in the rest of the world!

      • franhunne4u says:

        You know I wasn’t totally serious, you do you, and even though I am not an expert in being you I got the impression you are pretty good at it

      • I generally do not “like” comments I reply to, but I got a good laugh out of it. I’m not sure what makes me happier, that someone pays enough attention to the SCT universe to even make a comment like that, or that it got the squirrels in my brain churning on an idea for an episode…

      • franhunne4u says:

        That, Sir, makes me happy. Today is Friday 😆

      • Well, it’s now Saturday where you are…… but it still got made!

  2. Gosh, all the things you said you would require in order to “binge watch” a program sound a whole lot like this blog of yours! That’s why I visit – all those things you mention! Amazing huh? Hang on to your spleen and other parts by the way now that your hospital and doctor are back in Mecca’s network……if you don’t believe me, ask Buster.

    I miss your cartoons. Just saying. As for people living in perfect harmony, I love the idea but have yet to see any way it’s going to happen until everyone does exactly what I tell them to do.

  4. Thanks, E.S. for Sharing Your World and some of your amazing cartoons! Oddly enough that last strip is only too true to life sometimes O_o I suppose doctors have to have their little bonuses just like the rest of us…. Yeah. Good on ‘ya for not bingeing on mindless drivel any monkey with a computer keyboard (sorry whoever said the whole monkey with a typewriter thing…typewriters are rarer than dodo birds now)… could whip up, given enough time. I applaud your choice of ‘precious possession, I know he knows he’s loved (and well-fed, despite grousing that there’s NEVER enough food). I have been apprised that the choice of the word “possession’ was a poor one because humans and pets don’t qualify as ‘possessions’ but you caught the thought behind all the blather anyway! Cheers!! Have a very squirrely week Bill, and I hope the visit to the hospital/doctor was for something trivial! You take care! I SWEAR this isn’t a blatant ‘plug’ for my own blog, but you might wanna check out my A-Z Challenge “R” post…. I think you’ll enjoy the creature spotlighted…he sounds like your kind of critter! 😉

  5. Mer O'Leary says:

    I agree with you. No such thing as people getting along in this world. Nope. Never happen.
    Just call me a negative Merby…

  6. draliman says:

    That’s a lot of trolls. How could they lose? Of course it’s your fault.

  7. I’ve been reading a series of the SYW posts and not one single person has thought we can ever live together peacefully. Not only do I agree with that, but what does that say about us as a species? Yoicks.

    • We seem to have exceedingly lofty expectations for ourselves, apparently forgetting that deep down, we’re just another species of animal. Civilization has only existed for a few thousands years now, and evolution is process that occurs on almost geological time scales. That we get along as well as we do with so many different creeds, cultures and races is really a wonder in itself. Where everyone else seems to de disappointed we have not attained utopia, I see “Wow, how have we managed to not all kill each other yet? ” And I think that is something to celebrate…
