Questionert ~ Fandango Style

A couple of blogs I follow participate in a question prompt hosted by Fandango. I like this group of questions, based on Stephen Colbert’s questions that he asks his guests, so Suprise! a mid-week post.

Best sandwich? Peanut Butter and Jam on Honey Wheat bread. Classic and always nom nom.

What’s one thing you own that you really should throw out? Everything. I should start with all the clothes in my dresser and closet that I never wear. Some of the stuff is so old, it’s back in style.

What is the scariest animal? American Cockroaches will have me squealing and gibbering. Not the little German Cockroaches that infest every rental unit, everywhere… I mean the big ones that can fly. I’m getting seriously creeped out just writing about them.

Apples or oranges? Oranges

Have you ever asked someone for their autograph? Kinda. I stood in a line at a concert to get a band’s autographs at a festival. It was for my young neighbor. Oh, and I’ve had books signed by authors. I have a couple from Joe Hill and a couple from Jane Lindskold.

What do you think happens when we die? In simple terms, we rejoin the Creator Consiousness. It’s my own spiritual beliefs mostly based on Eastern belief systems

Favorite action movie? The Matrix

Favorite smell? Coffee

Least favorite smell? Asparagus

Exercise: worth it? Eventually, yes.

Flat or sparkling? Sparkling, please.

Most used app on your phone? Messenger, for texts. Yep, it’s an app, isn’t it? Non-communication app would probably be YouTube.

You get one song to listen to for the rest of your life: what is it? The Nutcracker Suite

What number am I thinking of? 69 Dude!

Describe the rest of your life in 5 words. Best is yet to come

Thanks to Fandango for the fun questions and thanks to you for reading. How would you answer these questions?

    1. Thanks! 🥰 I feel like all the crap before 50 was like “boot camp” and now I’ve graduated. Just a few more years and Ben will be doing whatever “adulting” looks like for him, then I’m “running away”! I can swing north and kidnap you…🤨

  1. The best is yet to come is awesome! I love it! Bobby and Catelyn ride bus #69 because of course they do! It is May and the humor of the number is still not lost on them. 🙂

    1. I tried to be serious, but had to channel Bill & Ted😂 All of Ben’s buses have had 3 digit numbers.🤷🏼‍♀️ I wonder if Bobby & Cate’s driver likes or hates having that bus🤔 Some forms of humor many of us never outgrow😆

    1. I have 2 jams, 2 preserves and a jar of apple butter… almost an entire door row dedicated to this classic sammich. No Jelly though, must be jam or above. Bread substitutions are okay… croissants, English muffins (toasted), pretty much any bread except the cheap stuff they call white bread that’s so full of chemicals it doesn’t mold, even after a month.
      Not that I’m picky or anything 😆

  2. I’m terrified of rodeo roaches too! There’s something exciting about the idea of throwing out all the non essentials and starting over 😄. The best is definitely yet to come 🥰💕🎶

    1. Rodeo roaches? 😆 That’s a new name to me. I had no idea they could fly til one flew at me. I was a crying, gibbering mess for real when that happened. Younger can verify.
      I couldn’t sleep in my room one night cuz one crawled across the wall by my bed and I couldn’t find it to kill it. Thank goodness they only seem to come inside when it’s hot and humid. Or when one of the cats brings one in, playing with it🙄🤦🏼‍♀️ I’ll take spiders, snakes, coyotes, even mountain lions over those nasty things. Gah!
      I did give some of my smaller jammas to Ben 😆 He spent lockdown GROWING 😲🤦🏼‍♀️
      Yep! My future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades😎😂💕🦋🌷💃🏼💫

    1. Cool! I wonder what our answers say about us? 🤔 Like, is it some kind of personality indicator or something 🤷🏼‍♀️ or maybe I to get more sleep, and not over analyze 🤪😂


  3. Wow, you and I are quite different when you get down to the important questions in life. But I’m right there with you on giant cockroaches. They were all over the dorms at my college in Virginia.

    1. They can FLY😱
      I guess coffee isn’t your favorite if it smells like cat pee to you. I was surprised to see how many atheists are in my little circle… most people went with decomposition after death.🤷🏼‍♀️

      1. That’s interesting about decomposition. What happens to my body when I die is something that never crosses my mind. I’ve always focused on my essence (energy). I actually buy into Buddhist reincarnation/nirvana theory, but not strongly enough to make it a basis for my life. I love asparagus. Considering that someone might not is confusing to me.

  4. One, when we were growing up, we would mix peanut butter with Griffin’s Pancake Syrup and then smear it on toast. We thought it was incredible, although I haven’t had that concoction in decades…

    Two, if you’re not a fan of giant flying roaches, steer clear of Texas. They are the size of squirrels here. (Slight exaggeration, but not by much.)

    Three, as many others have commented, your last response is perfect.

    1. We used to put potato chips inside a PB&J. A little salty crunch to go with the creamy sweet nom noms. We thought we were geniuses🤪😂😂

      It’s amazing that a strong, capable, independent woman like myself can be reduced to a crying, jibbering, rocking in the corner mess by a flying bug. It’s not like they can physically hurt me.🤷🏼‍♀️ Big ad squirrels, eh? That’s just so wrong! So wrong!

      I am happier, more secure in myself, and looking forward to future adventures… if the politicians don’t blow everything to pieces before I get to run away from home🤞 I’m starting to think I might need to be on the lookout for an old GLYSB to convert. There’s a lot of folks I want to “kidnap” and bring along on my great adventure.

    1. My comments still aren’t showing on your posts. I do leave comments but I think they get sent to your WordPress spam folder.
      I like your stories!

      How are you doing? All healed up? How’s the missus and the girls? All well I hope!
