If you were given the opportunity to ride in a helicopter would go? I would. I’ve always wanted to ride in a helicopter, but the opportunity has never presented itself. Ironically, I’m afraid to fly in an airplane. I won’t do it. I simply won’t. I might go in a single passenger plane with someone I know as a pilot, but I just won’t fly commercial. There’s just way too much that can go wrong. Someone pointed out to me that it’s all about control, and I think they’re right. With a helicopter, the pilot only has to worry about him, the ‘copter, and the few passengers in the craft. Same with a small plane. And I’m okay with that. I’m totally fine with the pilot only needing to worry about the ‘copter and me or me and a few others. But when it comes to a commercial plane, there are dozens if not hundreds of other passengers, which adds in too many variables of “what could go wrong” for my taste. I can’t control these people — no one can. And don’t for a moment think this is about 9/11, dear reader, because that would be wrong, oh so wrong. I’ve felt this way for as long as I can remember. Long before they ever crashed the planes into the twin towers. Nope, not gonna fly the big planes. Just not gonna do it.
But back to the question. Yes, I would totally go on a helicopter ride, and I’d probably enjoy it.
What are some of your favorite type of proteins to eat? (Meat, seafood, eggs, soy, cheese, nuts…). I was thinking about this the other day. I am totally into nut butters. While I’m an omnivore and I love me some meat — ummm, steak. I do love me a good steak once in awhile, and I will totally chow down on a well made burger when the mood hits me. I also enjoy me some good scrambled eggs — if they’re made right. But for the most part, I enjoy nut butters. Peanut butter is by far my favorite nut butter — yes, I said it I have a favorite, who knew? — but I’ll take cashew butter or sesame butter in a pinch. If my guts are acting up, sometimes peanut butter is the only protein I’ll get in a day. I’ll eat that right out of the jar (with a spoon, I’m not a complete savage). No shame. I like the taste and the texture of it. Why add any extra calories from bread?
I had a roommate once who was born in Germany but came from England, and she had this unfortunate tendency to hang all Americans with the quirks she saw the few she met use. One day she watched me take a spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar and asked me, “What is the attachment you Americans have with peanut butter? I don’t understand it. I tried it and it’s disgusting.” I had to sadly inform her that most of us here in the USA don’t love peanut butter the way that I do. And that most civilized people will make a sandwich with their peanut butter. I’m just a barbarian when it comes to peanut butter. Of course I had to counter with the unholy love people from England have for Marmite (or is it Vegemite? I get them mixed up). I mean, that stuff is vile. ^_^ Hey, turnabout is fair play. if she calls my peanut butter nasty, then I can call her Marmite vile. Each has their own way.
What would be your preference, awake before dawn, at dawn, or awake before noon? Because I’m disabled, I wake up with the sun. It doesn’t matter what time it is on the clock, when the sun peaks around my black out curtains, I wake up. I have black out curtains because I don’t want my room heating up during the day, but they (obviously) don’t block out all of the light because I get enough of the sun in the morning to wake my happy ass up. I don’t have the correct rod for them. But hey, it works for me. They let in just enough light in the morning to wake me up but not enough to blind me and give me a headache. I’m happy with the arrangement. ^_^ This, of course, means that in the summer I wake up way earlier than I do in the winter. One of the perks of being disabled is that I am no longer a slave to the alarm clock, though my pets will let me know if I’m sleeping too late for them. When the clocks change it messes me up royally. I hate it.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. So, as some of y’all know, I play Skyrim. It’s what I do to relax. I also mod the hell out of it. I hate the way the vanilla game makes the characters sit — especially the female characters. It’s so… prissy. Ugh. So I added an animation mod to the game that lets them sit… a bit differently. In last night’s game, my character was sitting at her desk (I like to sit my characters down before I quit the game… it’s just what I do.) and her spouse came in and sat down at the bench behind her. The animation I have is a bit random but it totally looks like they just had an argument and aren’t speaking to each other. It made me laugh. I thought I’d share.
It’s a bit dark, but what do you want from a house lit by lanterns? ^_^ Still I hope y’all can get what I’m seeing here. My goal in this game is to fill all of the bookcases behind my character up. There are tons of books lying around all over Skyrim. In every dungeon, crypt, fort, store, &c… and I’m gonna find them and put them in the bookcases. This home is added to the game by a mod called Elysium Estate and it’s one of my favorite house mods. I use it when I want to adopt kids *and* have more than one follower in my game. Usually homes will let you do one but not the other. Plus this one is handy to Whiterun.
So, that’s it. I’ve been more than tired this past week, which is why y’all haven’t heard from me much. I thought I’d do a post early today while I still have the energy to do something. Which means I may or may not have the energy to do dishes. We’ll see what happens. ^_^
