Share Your World – 2015 Week 1

When you have nothing going for you at a quarter past nine at night, desperate times call for desperate measures. And so I proceed to answer these questions for Week 1 of Share Your World 2015 brought to us by Cee Neuner. My quest for a perfect year (posting every single day) continues…it’s crazy to think I’m going to do that.

How do you get rid of pesky phone calls from telemarketers?

Just hang up on them. Simple. They don’t own me. I’m not obligated to buy into their products. But maybe if I saw the face of the one pictured above I might change my mind…

What are you a “natural” at doing?

Staying away from crowds, being the silent, unassuming type. I’ve always been able to go out doing my own thing without being bothered and I find I get more productive work done when I am by myself.

How often do you get a haircut?

Usually about two to three times a year or when I start to look and feel like a shaggy dog. I have started to record every time I get a haircut. The last haircut I got was back on October 15, 2014 so I am due for another one soon, maybe next month.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Other than the band that hasn’t been heard of much since winning a Grammy in early 2013, the thing that conjours up in my mind is a picture of a plastic slide and a kid traveling down it.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week I celebrated bringing in the New Year with my family, popping open a bottle of champagne and accidentally getting it all in my dad’s hair, dripping down his face like a melting snowman. It was a hilarious moment that fortunately was caught on camera. Next week, I am looking forward to the AFC and NFC championship games in football which will feature the Patriots vs. the Colts and the Seahawks vs. Cowboys. Thank goodness the Cowboys lost, because that avenges the kick to the shin that was the refs taking a potential playoff win from my Detroit Lions.
