If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?
Sick. And very fat. Assuming I go with my first choice which is chocolate lava cake with real whipped cream. And the only reason I thought of that is because I saw an Instant Pot recipe for it on Facebook, source of all indispensable information. Good thing I don’t have a cake pan insert. Phew.
I also want to say coffee, but that’s not exactly a nutritious staple either, so my final answer is soup. You can have a mad variety with that one. I’ve always said I could live quite happily on soup alone forever. Not sure if it’s true, but it’s a fun thing to say.
List at least five movies or books that cheer you up.
It’s a rare thing for me to watch the same movie twice, but I did it with Bridesmaids. Twice in a movie theatre and at least twice on Netflix after that. If that one doesn’t make you laugh out loud more than once then I’m thinking you might need more help than a movie can give you to cheer yourself up.
I also can’t think of any book I’ve picked up to re-read in an attempt to improve my mood. So I guess I’ll take a fail on this question.
Something I do like to watch though is multiple seasons of tv shows, because that’s like a book or movie that never freaking ends and can keep me up until ungodly hours in the interests of finding out what the heck god forsaken thing happens next. And although I profess to prefer comedies, I watch a LOT of crime shows. They’re not all that cheery normally, unless they’re badly done and then they’re hilarious and obviously listed in the wrong category.
If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?
Not much. So little in fact, I would not be surprised if the mouse rather quickly passed out from boredom, or left altogether in search of a more stimulating environment. W watches stuff on his computer. I watch stuff on my IPad. We yawn a lot. We go to bed. For a bit of excitement we might discuss the weather if it’s being its normal shitty self. But that just puts us in a bad mood so mostly we skip it. Or he goes on and on about it and I don’t listen. Yeah that sounds more like it. Important to get this boring shit right.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
There was a question a week or two ago – Been anywhere recently for the first time? – and I’m going to answer it now because I actually did leave my house for an extended period of time. We are talking hours. Holy. Imagine living here for so many years without ever visiting these two places –
Muttart Conservatory and the Art Gallery of Alberta. I greatly appreciate Son and Daughter-in-law and grandkids who took me to see these places because they were both lovely. Kind of makes me wonder what else there is that I haven’t been paying attention to in this city.
Then of course there’s my new books which I’ve mentioned already, pictured above. I had to scrounge up a bedside lamp to start reading ( in bed, my favourite place to read), having forgotten that real books don’t light up in the dark.
Hope your world is also filled with wondrously magical things worth sharing. Oh, did I say “also”? Okay I did, so I must have meant to, right? Right. More equally thrilling stuff to come I have no doubt. Even though you might.
