A Bit (More) About Me #1

–Via Melanie at Sparks From a Combustible Mind‘s Unofficial SYW 7/30/18

I recently began following Cee Neuner at Cee’s Photography because, after seeing several of the Bloggers I follow respond to Cee’s “Share Your World” challenge, I decided I wanted to get in on that.  When I learned that Cee is taking a break ’til around mid-August, I was sad that I’d missed the boat.  So I was delighted when Fandango shared some of his world in response to Melanie’s stand-in for Cee’s challenge, thereby giving me a chance to share some of mine too.

I think I’m going to have fun with this particular feature.  Y’all let me know what you think, and feel free to join in & share some of you, too!

Have you ever been in a food fight?
No.  But on a few memorable occasions, I’ve been fortunate to have used a lover’s body as a plate off of which to eat delicacies and as a cup from which to sip whiskey.  Does that count?

How do you deliver bad news?
Context, context, context.  It depends on to whom I’m delivering the bad news and why.

What (if anything) do you think is beyond the stars?
Vacuum and void.  As our obtrusive universe is ever-expanding, I’d hate to think that it was actually displacing something else, just squeezing it out of existence as if it didn’t matter and had no right to its place anyway.  I mean, it’s not like we enlightened humans have ever done (or would ever do!) anything like that, right?  Right?!?

 What “redneck” (unsophisticated) activity do you like to do?
I’m a Southerner in middle Tennessee.  To many, I’m sure, almost everything I do is redneck.  And perception is reality.  Seriously, though, define “unsophisticated”.  Does that mean things like picking my nose or walking around my house naked when I’m home alone?  Or singing in the shower?  Guilty!  Don’t look at me like that.  Don’t you do the same?

Is there a scary scene from a movie (or book) you viewed a child that still haunts you?
No, but I can remember scenes from 2 particular movies that haunted me for a long time after I first saw them as a child.  At the end of the 1976 version of Carrie, when her hand reaches up from the grave.  And from a movie called, I think, Night of the Scarecrow, when a hapless victim is running for his life through a cornfield and runs right into the tines of the killer’s lowered pitchfork.  Ouch!  My Dad scared the ever-lovin’ CRAP out of me during that movie, and it was a year before I was able to watch a scary movie again.

Seal’s ‘Kiss From A Rose’ was the theme from which film?
Batman Forever.  But it wasn’t made strictly for the soundtrack.  If I remember correctly, that was from Seal’s 2nd album.  Let me know if I’m wrong, y’all.

Wellnow that was fun.  C’mon and share y’all’s worlds a little bit, won’t ya?

  1. Thank y’all for sharing this week! I hope that ‘redneck’ question wasn’t offensive. Um. I’m from Utah, and we get our fair share of strange ideas about what we do up in here…. Nice blog btw! 😀
