Tricia over at Never Less than Everything tagged me for a “Sisterhood of the World Blog Award.”
It’s very kind of her and may be just the kick in the ass I need to start blogging regularly again (hey who knows)
The rules go like this:
“The Sisterhood of the World Blog Award is about connecting with other female bloggers and getting the blogger community together. The rules are:
1. Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions the nomination has provided.
3. Nominate ten other bloggers
4. Create ten questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.”
I have changed them a bit, please keep reading to find out how.
Here are Tricia’s questions and my answers…
- If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
We tend to do things we don’t like out of obligation or necessity.
Most people don’t like doing laundry.
Clothing is a requirement (social obligation) in most settings, and generally people prefer being clean. It’s also no fun to be cold. Options are to do laundry/walk around filthy/ keep buying new clothes/ or join a nudist colony with reliable heating.
Generally, people opt for washing clothes.
Not doing the things we like can also be because of necessity or obligation. Of course many people ignore that, throw caution to the wind and end up in prison.
2. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
A faulty assumption is being implied in this statement. Words can call one to action, soothe hearts, create hope, affirm and educate. Sometimes, saying IS doing.
3. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
I’d like to
teach the world to sing eradicate poverty of the mind.
Signs of an impoverished mind include hate, ignorance, and fear.
I think I’d have an easier time teaching the world to sing.
4. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
What I do now.
5. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
I believe in faeries, (I do, I do) so its working out.
6. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
I don’t usually entertain the idea of a different past as even past mistakes, regrets, abuse, poisonous frames of mind, and lack of critical thinking have brought me here, with people I love. I don’t think I’ve ever done anything based on the belief I’ll live past 40, so I can’t say how that would influence me.
7. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
I don’t believe fate/destiny nor luck/randomness. As a part of a very intricate living system I have some effect on how things go but only a small bit. I have controlled, sometimes poorly, sometimes well, my life in the decision making, actions, and reactions that I have been able to control. It’s all there is to do.
8. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Define “right” and what the difference would be -between the two? Like Susanne Vega, you can always find me a bit left of center.
9. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
I defend my friend and re-evaluate my feelings for these people.
10. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
“I know you haven’t quite got the receptive language t comprehend this advice but, Don’t put that in your mouth, you don’t know where its been.”
11. Would you break the law to save a loved one?
Probably. The only exception is if they needed “saved” from the punishment of a heinous crime they happen to be guilty of.
Time for my questions.
- Why do you blog?
- What would you like to achieve in life?
- Moist. <—– does this word squig you out if so, WHY?
- Do you have a nemesis animal? What is it? (bug, mammal, reptilian, whatev) Tell us about your trauma.
- What would be your ideal out of town holiday (vacation)?
- What is your fav. season?
- How do you feel about Mt. McKinley getting changed back to its native name? (my international friends may need to google this)
- What are you reading right now? (if you aren’t name a movie you’ve seen recently)
- Whats up with Donald Trump’s hair?
- John always wears a shirt, pants, socks, and shoes. He owns 12 pairs of socks, 3 pairs of shoes, 5 pairs of pants, and 5 shirts.
Assuming all other imaginable variables remain constant, How many different outfits can John make?
Now for my new rules.
I’m waving the implied vagina requirement.
