What is your favorite cheese?
Melted! Pretty much anything is edible if you put enough melted cheese on top of it. Not a fan of the excessively strong or stinky stuff, or low-fat. Low-fat cheese totally misses the point of cheese. At the beginning of the summer I bought a big block of marble cheese because it’s pretty versatile, even though when I need it shredded I have to do it myself. Sigh. Yes i am one of those people who buys cheese already shredded whenever I am gripped by the fear of shredding my knuckles on the cheese grater. I’ve never actually done this, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time. I love feta cheese on pizza and in salads. And real parmesan over the stuff in a cardboard can.
Are you left or right-handed?
Mostly right, but maybe borderline ambidextrous. I can switch between right and left eye dominance although I’m not sure how much conscious control I have over that. When I tried trap shooting I either hit almost every target in a set or completely missed every last one of them, much to W’s consternation. He gave up coaching me. I can write backwards from right to left with my left hand. The only thing I can think of that this is useful for is composing cryptic messages you can easily read by holding them up to a mirror. So not exactly a marketable skill. For lots of things if my right hand gets tired I just switch to my left. But using knives and scissors and eating utensils (and shot guns pointed who the hell knows where) are strictly right-handed activities.
Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?
I would like to believe I do both every day but the truth is I rarely push myself to do either one. I feel great after a long walk. I feel equally great after getting decent scores on tests that measure knowledge or intelligence. If my results are crap I assume the test must be crap. Because, come on. The questions are dumb if even Google can’t help me. If a day passes in which I haven’t exercised anything much past my ability to breathe the air, I don’t feel bad about it.
Complete this sentence: Hot days are …
…..exhausting. Good for napping. Better than freezing cold ones.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
After our little hot spell the weather turned cold and wet and windy and blah. Supposed to warm up again this week though. Our air quality has tanked because of the wildfires in neighbouring B.C. I cannot imagine what it’s like for them there.
W was going to come home for a bit next week but since he would have had to turn around and head back right away to be with his dad at a medical appointment he is thinking it’s just not worth the long drive. We’re planning a road trip to Ontario in September, speaking of long drives. I vacillate between anticipation and dread. Haha. No it will be fun. Well, you know, as much fun as two old people cooped up in a car for hours at a time can muster.
Hope you’re having a great week! No day dreaming while using the cheese grater! Unless you want to try out other handedness for awhile
