This week's 'Tuesday 4
is a hodgepodge of questions.
1. Did you have a favorite cartoon program or character as a young person, or even today?
I loved Rocky and Bullwinkle and also The Bullwinkle show, though I did not ever see them as nighttime programs. It was only when they were Saturday morning cartoons that I first watched them. I guess sarcasm was my preferred language even as a kid.
The best thing about Saturday morning was watching early cartoons while Mom and Dad slept (It was the only day of the week they were not up and at 'em). My sister and I would sit on the den floor, glued to the TV until they woke. I feel sorry for kids today who do not get the experience of that magical Saturday morning ritual.
2. Can you whole heartedly give people a second chance or do you find yourself still worried about trusting them?
I grew up with the best grudge holder in the entire world and I decided at a pretty young age that I did not want to live like that. It might take a bit more time than just hearing an apology, but after I mull it over a bit I am all about giving second chances.
3. Are there things/activities you'd like to add to your life or do you feel have enough to do, going on etc. to keep you satisfied?
I really would like to write more than I do, entertain more, laugh more, be around people I love more, travel more,
Like most Americans I should get more exercise (anxiously waiting for the pool water to be ready for swimming) and I should keep house better than I do, but I find housework other than the necessities pretty boring.
But in all honesty I have a home, a husband who loves me in spite of how I am sometimes, good friends, great neighbors (mostly), and I am pretty satisfied with my life.
4. Can you live without your phone, TV, social media?
I would love to be able to answer this with a huge yes, but I would be lying. I am not attached to my phone, in fact I often have no clue where in the house I left it.
I am not a huge social media person and only have a Facebook and Blogger account that I use. I do have an Instagram account that is only used when Son3 or Dil3 have a gig somewhere that is live streaming the performance through Instagram. It is the only reason I ever bothered to get one.
Facebook I use mainly to see pictures of my friends kids or grand kids. I don't read or care to read people's opinions about much of anything, so I don't. I guess the only things I ever read on FB are the articles Sean Dietrich writes, which are always shared by a couple of my friends.
Blogger? Well, I would not be writing this right now if not for the blogging social outlet. I have "met" some wonderful people through this medium and enjoy sharing bits and pieces of others lives through it, Occasionally though I get a little TMI!
TV? Honestly TheHub and I watch it nearly every night. It is not used at all during the day, but after we eat we like to sit in the den and watch some episodic show. We just watched the final episode of Ozark, and will have to find another show to amuse ourselves. Any suggestions?
My favorite part of the Rocky and Bullwinkle show was always Fractured Fairy Tales
