Thanks to Cee for this weekly challenge: Share Your World – 2016 Week 46
Are you a traveler or a homebody?
Before retirement we didn’t have much time for traveling. We’re trying to make up for that now, so I consider myself a traveler. I love to see new places and to learn about new cultures and countries. I also like to meet people from those cultures and countries and see how we’re different and how we’re similar.
I think that stretching my cultural awareness has become an even more important task since the U.S. election than it was before.
What kind of TV commercial would you like to make? Describe it.
I can’t think of any kind of a TV commercial I’d like to make. We watch our shows off the DVR specifically so that we can fast-forward through the commercials. In fact, we recently had to trade in our cable remote for a new one because we wore out the fast-forward button.
Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.
(As in crazy or intelligent? You decide.)
List some fun things for a rainy day.
Reading a good book.
Reading an ordinary book.
Reading a bad book.
Thinking about reading a book.
Writing a killer blog post.
Marathon viewing of a new (to me) TV series.
Watching a movie to see how it measures up to the book.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’ve been immersed in doom and gloom since November 9, when the U.S. Election results became evident. I’m looking forward to feeling a little better soon, but with renewed determination to be vigilant and to work toward restoring civility, tolerance, and respect.
