Here we are again, dear reader. It’s Wednesday and I’m late again for Share Your World, brought to us by Melanie. Head over to her blog to see other people’s answers and links and all that good stuff. I have no real good reason for being late this week other than I can’t do a lot in a day, and Monday I had a friend come over, yesterday I went out to lunch but today I have no plans, so here we are. Tomorrow I’m getting my teeth worked on, and I’ll be sedated, so I won’t be able to blog — or do much of anything else for that matter. We went for the “pre op” meeting yesterday, and she warned that I may not be up for anything for a couple of days, depending on how I react to the medication. I dunno, I’ve never taken it before. We’ll see. If I post something incoherent tomorrow, y’all will know why. Ha! Anyway, here are this week’s questions:
What’s the worst commercial you’ve
recently seen (or heard)? Why was it so bad? I don’t watch a lot of TV right now, and the great thing about YouTube is that I can skip the commercials. But the one that comes to mind is a few years old and was for Poise pads and it had these two women who are like “Poise pads are better than period pads for bladder leakage…” or something like that. And then they posed the ludicrous question, “What do we do with all of these period pads?” and proceeded to make fucking crafts (like a vest?) out of period pads. Like… no. Why would anyone do that? It was just stupid. I guess they thought it was amusing, but it really wasn’t.
What takes a lot of time but is totally worth it? Crocheting or knitting anything. Sewing too. I guess making anything by hand. People want to skip steps whenever they’re making something, but it’s worth it to do the small things that ensure that whatever one is crafting will last as long as possible.
Have you ever smiled at a stranger and then wished you hadn’t? Why or why not? I actually don’t remember smiling at anyone and wishing I hadn’t. I’ve struck up conversations with a lot of strangers in my day. Most of the time, it leads to a brief chat and we never see each other again. Sometimes I’ve had some very strange encounters with people and we never see each other again, but I don’t regret those either, because they add spice to life. I mean, even the uncomfortable and weird people who are likely to appear on the evening news are just interesting footnotes in my past. I suppose the only person I regret greeting — though it was an IM and not a smile — would be my psycho ex. Because he was psychotic and that ended badly. Mostly though, strangers remain strangers and our brief encounters are just that — fleeting and not very remarkable.
What do you think is the nastiest tasting food? The list of food I won’t eat is pretty small. Mostly it’s not because the food tastes nasty, it’s a texture thing, or I don’t like the way it smells. Like okra. I can’t stand the texture of okra.
Are you at peace with yourself? Your world? Please share, whether you said “yay” or “nay”! I’m content for the most part with who and where I am. I’d like to not be disabled and I’d like to be able to work and pay down my student loan at the very least… As y’all know, I’m working on getting out and about and getting more exercise — baby steps, dear reader, baby steps. I did start my Instagram back up to record my progress (@crunchityfrog of course). I mean, there is always room for improvement.
I tried to add a caption to this picture (Photo by Daniel Reche from Pexels, edited in PS by me) but WordPress seems to have removed that option and is trying to emulate Instagram in adding a “text over picture” option instead. Hey, WordPress, you’re not Instagram. You are your own entity. Stop trying to be something you’re not. Stop it now. It’s like someone’s parent trying to dance at their party. It’s embarrassing. And if I’m trying to put pictures in my blog to spice up the blog, I don’t want to cover the picture in text, at least not the half-assed way you’re trying to do it. It was pretty sad. Anyway, mini-rant over. See y’all next time.
