Fluff From Skye’s Blog

This came from Skye who was tagged with this kind of touchy feely thing.

Tell me 1 piece of information about yourself that I really should never know.

I’m not wearing any underwear right now.

Tell me 2 colors that you would never ever ever wear.

Puke green and puke yellow. I wear every colour so this was a silly question.

Tell me 3 things that you love to eat.

Cheesecake, ice cream and barely cooked steak.

Tell me 4 things that you would never ever serve to a guest at your dinner table.

Crawling caterpillars, cow eyes, plastic furniture or human beings (not living ones anyway).

Tell me 5 things that you keep forgetting to buy from the supermarket.

Nothing I can think of, I usually make a list ahead of time.

Tell me 6 things about the autumn that you love.

It’s cool after summer which is too hot.
I like the way Autumn is spelled, so many people forget how to spell words with silent letters.
Leaves, all the colours: green, red, burgundy, yellow, gold, orange and so on.
Kids go back to school and we have the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) not to mention all the Fall Fairs and Festivals in towns all over Ontario.
Someone said October is a lucky/ good month for me. I’m not sure why.
My nephew and my sister both have birthdays in the Fall and it’s the time for Halloween!

Tell me 7 things that you value about your family.

This is way too complicated and mushy/ fluffy.

Tell me 8 things that you like to watch on TV.

Some of the commercials are good. I like watching a guy I knew from school appear on various commercials, he’s in one for Rogers now.
Dust and dust bunnies. I just don’t clean around there as often as I should. But they are kind of interesting and don’t you almost hate to destroy their little dusty empires?
I used to watch the Gilmore Girls. I haven’t seen it for years now.
Sometimes I watch Medium or Ghost Whisperer but they are about ghosts and that’s a bit touchy with me. I don’t enjoy being scared and I do believe in ghosts.
I watch YTV (the TV station) when my nephew is visiting. Some of those shows are actually good. I don’t look for them when he’s not here though.
I watch Canadian Idol when it comes on.
I have begun watching Deal or No Deal.
I like watching a lot of science fiction but when you live with someone who really doesn’t like it you tend to miss a lot more than you see.

Tell me 9 things that you loved about school.

I barely remember school. I liked walking to and from school, kids miss that these days. I liked most of the classes: history, literature, geography, English. I came to enjoy exams and tests once I realized they were as much fun as those personality tests I am still addicted to online. That’s about it. I had some friends but most of the time I was a loner. I dropped out of high school a few times.

Tell me 10 of the little things that you love about life.

It’s always there. No matter what the last hour was like or how busy yesterday was, the next day always comes – as long as you wake up for it.
There are endless things to learn and explore. It’s like living in an encyclopedia.
It comes in a great range of colours.
Rain, rocks, nature in general. Storms and weather in general.
Plants, nothing can be too terrible if you can go outside or look out a window or your kitchen table even and see a plant growing. I’m a closet tree hugger.
Being able to use my body. Just having fingers, legs, eyes… it’s really amazing and we should not forget or take any of it for granted.
A smile. One smile has a huge amount of power. Not everyone really has this figured out. Some go around in a grump all the time, I feel sorry for them.
Humour, any kind of humour that is really funny and clever but not the kind that hurts or cuts up other people.
People, sometimes I think I’d like to have the world to myself but in reality the world would be far different and missing so many things if there weren’t other people around. It’s not the famous people who count its the everyday people who deliver your newspaper, cook your eggs the way you like and drive the bus who really make the world go around.
Just being here at all. It’s such a miracle that each of us were ever born. Think about all the combinations of people who built up to your creation. If anyone had done something differently you wouldn’t have been born. Some other warm body would be living your life, or many no one at all. Give thanks to your ancestors. Not just the sex part (I know a lot of people will think that’s all there is to it).
