GAME #3 – JULY 2020

Q & A from a guy called bloke


Do you think the music you personally listen to [as in your favourited artists over just generalised commercial listening] suit and reflect your true personality?
Definitely! I love Disco and love to dance. I also love Country because I have always wanted to learn to line dance. I also have a lot of music that I relate to or just love, Maroon 5 is on the top of the list.
What’s your average ‘online screen time’ equate to per day in hours?
Off and on all day so maybe 8 hours.
Are you currently happy with your Government’s management of your country?
[If you wish to simply answer yes or no you can, equally if you wish to elaborate in more depth you can do that too]
No, President Trump is an idiot who is literally losing his mind. Yes, I voted for him but I always thought he was a good businessman. Well, I was wrong or he has seriously changed over these 3.5 years. He sort of makes me throw up in my mouth when I see his picture or hear his voice.
How many actual ‘real people’ as opposed to virtual people do you actually give a damn about and what happens to them?
I have a small list and sometimes I will remember someone that I really do care about and miss, but haven’t talked to in a very long time. The amount of people I care about enough to talk to regularly, well they know who they are because otherwise you probably haven’t heard from me in a while. Unfortunately, I am a bit of a baby about the whole “why do I have to be the one to call every time?” thing. Sometimes I just want to know if certain people ever think of me. I hate to waste time on people who don’t really care to talk to me anyhow.
Quick!! No body’s watching!! What crazy thing would you do if nobody was watching which you can’t do normally because it embarasses you or is perhaps a little too naughty?
Wow, I can only think of one thing…How many options are there?
If you HAD to leave the country in a hurry and in a disguise – what have you done??
Won the lottery.
What are some of the most adventurous or craziest/strangest or weirdest things you would like to do before you die?
I want to scuba dive in one of the coral reefs of the world.
What is your opinion or do you have any thoughts on the whole virtual reality industry and the way it will soon become more of an acceptable way of life in the replacement of holidays, adventures and or the workplace?
I think it is a bit strange and we should all keep a few close friends because fake people aren’t going to have the same feelings. I think the workplace part is fine, I would love to work remotely and as far as holidays? If it means you don’t have to supply loads of candy for every holiday and buy expensive gifts, I’m all for it. Maybe just a quiet holiday dinner with those few close friends you kept.
What do people always get wrong about you when first starting to get to know you?
I think people don’t realize how smart I am. I think I present as the “average Joe” but in reality I’m quite bright.
What’s the strangest dream/nightmare you have ever had?
My recurring spider nightmares that I had to go to therapy for.
What’s the most trouble you have ever been in?
In 9th grade I got caught cheating on a chemistry test of the elements and I had to take the book test, which was ten times harder than the test I cheated on.
What’s the worst date you’ve been on and why?
The worst date was when I went to pick up a guy on the 4th of July, that I had met a few weeks earlier. I was bringing him to a party of all my college friends at one of their grandparents houses on the beach. I had to pick him up at his friends, not knowing it was a party. When I picked him up he was drunk, wearing tight shorts, a wife-beater type tank top, and those drugstore flip-flops that were cool in the 70’s. When we got to the party of my friends not only was he drunk and under-dressed, he sat there and said “Oooh” and “Aaaah” after every firework went off. I dropped him off after then never saw him again.

Prompt for #SoCS July 4/2020

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “toss.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy! Written for Linda G. Hill:


I tossed the sweater into the back seat and wiped the sweat from my forehead. Being under the sun, despite the wind generated as I drive through the city, warmed me so much more that I thought possible. Having the top down on my convertible gave me the ultimate feeling of freedom. The only problem about tossing things into the back seat while the top is down is stuff flying out when I picked up speed on the turnpike. Was losing cashmere worth the feeling of the wind blowing through my hair and the sun shining on my face? I wouldn’t admit it to my boyfriend, the one that bought me the sweater. With that being said, Mike lives hours away and it wasn’t like he would ever see me driving along

My Garden

For years I always had a garden. I grew cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, squash…whatever I could fit. In 2018 I planted my garden but my husband passed away and I didn’t touch it after that. Last year I looked at it and just shook my head because it was all overgrown weeds. We took it down and mowed over most of it. Now you can see outline but nothing else.

This year I planted raised beds in my backyard on the concrete pad.

Herb garden: Parsley, Cilantro, Basil, Dill, Rosemary
Cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, basil

Since planting the beds my vegetables have done very well.

Once the cukes and tomatoes come in I will be overloaded but that is okay.

Happy 4th of July!
