Are you an Early to bed, early to rise person, a night owl and day sleeper/dozer, or an ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ person? I’ve always been a night owl. But I have no trouble waking up early in the morning either. When I lived in my motor home, without electricity, I went to bed around 10pm and woke up with the sun. Which means sometimes I was up at 5 frickin’ thirty in the morning, and sometimes I could sleep in until 8:30. Nowadays, I still wake up with the sun for the most part, but I have black-out curtains on my windows because my windows face East and a blast of sun in the face when I wake up can totally be headache inducing. Like migraine-city. So I still wake up with the sun, but it’s when the sun creeps in past my sun-blocking curtains. I still go to bed after midnight, but that’s just the way my body-clock works.
What are some misconceptions about your hobby, should you have a hobby? So, I have several hobbies, and I suppose one of the misconceptions that most people have about the one I do the most — knit/crochet is that since I enjoy doing it, I should, you know, just make things for people. Because once someone (especially family) learns that I know how to do this, they will say, “Can you knit/crochet me a….” and my answer is always “No, but I can teach you how to knit/crochet…” Not very many people have taken me up on that offer, by the way. It’s also a misconception that if I know how to knit one type of thing then I must know how to knit every possible thing that can be knit. Like, I can totally bust out a scarf, blanket, shawl, and things that don’t take much thinking and knit in one piece. But I can’t knit a sweater or any piece of clothing that has to be knit in pieces and constructed. I can totally sew clothing, but that’s different thing.
A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? “Penguins do not taste like chicken!” and he’s there because he lost his top hat (hence the sombrero) and he’s looking for Bugs Bunny. Which is why he didn’t turn left in Albuquerque. (Melanie’s answer)
Aliens have landed…do they come in peace? I dunno, I don’t speak alien. But I usually don’t assume malice until malice is shown. Also, why do most people assume that aliens are more advanced than us? Just because they’re flying around in space ships doesn’t mean anything. They could have specialized only in space flight and be dumb as shit about everything else. The first aliens to make it to our world might have destroyed their world completely just to get into space. And their space ships might be nothing but junk being held together by duct tape and bubble gum… just clunking along on fumes while the aliens are hoping they don’t die before the stupid thing falls apart. We don’t know anything about them, just as they won’t know anything about us. They could be space rednecks for all we know. Just a thought.
What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week? I have a roof over my head, food on my table, clothes on my back, a good husband, a calm home, and I’m doing okay. (knock on wood). That’s all I really want from life. Everything else is extra.
