12 Questions
When was the last time you were totally lost?
[Be this physically, mentally, emotionally or so on, interpretation is yours]
When was the last time I wasn’t? Starting with my husband passing in 2018 my life has not stopped this whirlwind of changes. I just want a place to physically settle, mentally relax, and be more emotionally stable.
Do you think that we as viewers to the entertainment industry have much higher and perhaps unrealistic expectations to the content that we read, watch or listen to today in comparison to previous years and or generations?

Literature/Film/Television/Music
I think a lot of people expect a lot! I don’t see what is wrong with the old shows. They were truly funny if they were supposed to be. They were truthful, maybe a little too truthful sometimes. TV shows and movies were good even though every aspect wasn’t perfectly realistic. Some of the techno stuff and stunts make movies now less believable in my opinion.
Does Money ‘Really’ make us happy or is that just a myth and more importantly it is ‘what you do with it’ that makes you happier?
I think that money has the potential to make your life easier. Once your life is easier you have more time and energy to focus on yourself and your happiness. I think what you do with it really only matters if you care to share it. I honestly don’t care about extravagant vacations, fancy cars, and other indulgences that even a typical “well off” person still could never afford in a lifetime.
How important to you is it to be right? I’m always right unless I am wrong. If I am right then just know that I am right and that I have done my homework to ensure I am right. If I am wrong, please point it out and let me know where I went wrong. That way the next time I will be right again.
How often do you find yourself completely confused with life and the way it is changing and has changed over the last ten or twenty years?
Never. It isn’t confusing it is just super f—-ed up!
When out shopping and carrying your goods or groceries which do you prefer to use more often – paper or plastic bags [reusable] or cotton totes or something else? It depends on what I plan on doing with the bags. When I have to pack things I like the plastic bags to pack things in. If I know I will have a lot of recyclables then I like paper so I can reuse it immediately. I do have an obsession with reusable bags and have been told I am no longer “allowed” to purchase bags because I have so many. I like them though but don’t reuse them as often as I should because I see new ones I like.
How many emails do you get a day [roughly] and from who do you get the most? Probably at least 75 emails a day. Most are from retail outlets since I do a lot of shopping online. I have a few different email addresses so each one gets different types.
Have you ever made for yourself ‘homemade wine/spirits’ and if so what was it made from and how was it? Only by accident when I have left fruit or juice in the fridge for too long. I do make Kombucha but it isn’t considered a spirit.
In your opinion and from no ‘fixed time period’, what have been in your eyes the top 5 most memorable television series you have ever watched and what made them special to you?
1. The Muppet Show: loved the puppets and I remember so many of the shows.
2. The Brady Bunch: It was unrealistic with all those kids but each of the kids was “normal” in some kid sort of way.
3. Blue Bloods: Just so good in all senses
4. America’s Next Top Model: I love seeing all of the transformations Tyra would impose on the would-be models.
5. The Love Boat: It was just the ultimate vacation and always love!
What’s wrong with today’s music as opposed to the music of your yesterday’s – do you consider the music now to be far worse or greatly improved and why?
I think both. Some music is so technical that it doesn’t seem like a human has even participated in it.
Does world history really matter to our daily lives – is it that important – l mean it’s not like we can change anything right – what do you think? Yes, and it shouldn’t be erased. That is how we learn not to do the same stupid things that have happened in the past. It is good to see what mistakes were made.
Do you believe that a good night’s sleep and waking up refreshed the following day helps you make better decisions or worthier improvements to your life – or it makes no difference at all? It totally makes a world of difference. I have recently been very tired and I am cranky and irritable. I don’t feel like doing much and I just want to eat….

Fandango’s Provocative Question #71

FPQ

Find the question here: https://fivedotoh.com/2020/05/27/fandangos-provocative-question-71/

How old are you* and how old do you feel — older or younger than your actual chronological age? Do you generally act your age? And what does “acting your age” mean to you?

I am 49 but feel like I just graduated from high school. I don’t feel old enough to have to make many of the decisions I have had to make in life. On the contrary, I am happy being home doing crafty stuff or reading. I can I am also a “repurposer” so I hate throwing things away that I might be able to use again some day.
