Share Your World — Potpourri

Share Your WorldThis week, Melanie is giving us a potpourri of questions for her Share Your World prompt. So let’s just get to it.

The first question is courtesy of the magnificent blogger, Rory (aka A Guy Called Bloke). Rory asked, “How many people in real life or on social media (including WordPress, which has become a rather social media site) do you consider good enough friends to help you hide the dead body?”

Well, it just so happens that I answered this question already when I responded to Rory’s post on my own blog. So rather than repeat it here, if you’re interested in how I responded to Rory’s question, you may click here.

Are you ready to order? What are you having (craving) right now?

I can’t say that I’m craving anything right at this moment. However, more often than not, what we order for delivery is Chinese food.

How’s the weather in YOUR neck of the woods?

The good news is that it’s sunny and it’s only going up to 88° today and by the weekend, the highs are going to only be in the 70s. And the air quality is good. So, the weather is fine.

There has always been something. Before there was something, there was only nothing. Which do you think is more likely?

Melanie states that “there has always been something.” She also states that “before there was something, there was only nothing.” She wants to know which of these diametrically opposite statements do I believe? I believe that I don’t know and I am 100% sure that no one else knows. That said, I am inclined to believe that before there was something (i.e., before the “big bang” some 13.7 billion years ago) there was absolutely nothing. And from a personal perspective, before I was something (i.e., before I was born), I was nothing; I didn’t exist. And once I’m dead, there will, again, for me, be nothing; I will cease to exist.

Attitude of Gratitude:

What is your favorite time of year? Why?

I’m not sure why this is a “gratitude” question, other than the fact that autumn is my favorite season and it’s now autumn, so I’m grateful that summer is over and winter has not yet begun. Why is autumn my favorite season? Well, the weather is delightful…not devastatingly hot nor overly cold. I’m easy to please.

    Pah, give it a few hours and I bet you’ll be craving your “fix”. Stephen Colbert, anyone?

    Chinese is always a favorite choice for ordering in.

    I’m with you on what to order. (Our details could be different, but I like lots of different kinds of Chinese food, beyond what I will list. I also like lots of different kinds of Asian food more broadly.) I’ve craved, in the last few weeks, spicy eggplant. I’ve relatively recently (with respect to how long Chinese food has been a favorite) learned I appreciate white fish in XO sauce, too (not available everywhere). I additionally usually like to order a chopped chicken dish with crispy rice noodles (have to look on the menu for the name) to wrap in lettuce. I’m weird enough to enjoy tofu. I over-order and enjoy the leftovers.

    Thanks Fandango for Sharing Your World. I’d LOVE to order in some delivery Chinese, alas we have no Chinese restaurants (that deliver) up here, so a spare-rib, some foil wrapped chicken, tender steak on a stick and all the other delicacies I get when I order my favorite (the Bo-bo platter…which is called something different in each different restaurant…it’s the APPETIZER platter) will have to wait until I can go somewhere they do deliver Chinese food or at least cook it. I haz a big sad. You’re lucky and you may not know it. The ‘gratitude’ question was a bit mis-labelled, but I thought ‘maybe folks will share why they are grateful for their favorite seasons?” and double dipped because that was sort of done in the weather question too.. It was indeed a mixed bag this week, and I’m glad you participated! Have an excellent week!

    In my neck of the woods it is colder than normal and we have already had snow (not much though) twice and I want a little autumn weather now.
