Rory’s Question Time Over Coffee 10th December

Rory is our gracious host, and I have met my coffee quota for the day, but here goes.

What motivates you to get up every day?

No motivation is needed from me. I just enjoy getting up every day.


What words have always struck you as funny or odd when looked upon?

Cattywampus. My hubby uses it more than most humans. Why? I have no idea; all I know is no one questions him about it. It’s usually followed by awkward silence.

How often do you read the comments left by other bloggers on other bloggers’ published posts?

Always! It’s the curiosity in me I can’t help myself.

How hard do you work to keep your long-standing friendships alive year in and year out, and do your friends work the same way to keep you?

The friends who did not put in the work have recently been dismissed from their friendship duties. If I have to work hard at a friendship, it’s not a friendship, it’s a job, and I already have one of those.

How many emails do you delete every week?

Oh, sweet baby Jesus, I don’t think numbers go that high.

Are you easily distracted, and what delights you the most?

Yes, and let’s face it, it doesn’t take much.


Have you ever had a strange unexplained encounter that left you shaken and baffled, and if so, what do you think it was? Or what did your brain make you think it was?

Yes. I saw a female ghost floating at the foot of my bed, holding a small box. If a police officer asked me to describe her, there is no doubt I could give a vivid description. I thought it was a female ghost.


Are we more scared of things that go bump in the night when in the dark or equally as concerned if the same thing happens during daylight hours? If so, why do you think that is?

Bumps at any time of the day are alarming because I’m not a big fan of surprises. Bumps in the dark raise the fear factor bar.

What are the magical ingredients for writing a bestseller, and do you think you could write one?

Considering some current bestsellers, I would say the magical ingredients are a boatload of money mixed with notoriety and a hint of basic writing skills.

Well, I don’t think I couldn’t write one, but I currently lack a boat with a load of money or notoriety.

When was the last time you stayed awake all night having fun with another person, and what were you doing?

February 23, 2022, in New York City, enjoying the Elton John concert with a friend.

Would the 18-year-old you recognize the older you if you both collided on the street today? If not, why?

Hell no! That girl would be too naive to accept the possibility of it even happening.

What are you most looking forward to in 2023?

Being the best possible version of myself by raising my consciousness.


Are you more curious, are you more passionate, or are you both?

Hands down curious first, passionate second.

Can you easily recognize your flaws, and do you think it is important?

More so now than when I was younger. I spent too much time focusing on my outer “flaws” while the inner flaws were screaming for attention.

The musical album you loved the most in the last twenty years was…?

This is tough, but I think I’m going with Amy Winehouse Back to Black.

What could you do less of?

There are several answers, but the one that comes to mind is, wasting time.

  1. My favorite answer was about your outer and inner flaws. Seems attention to those-in that order- is a natural phenomenon. Cheers!

  2. Ah it’s been awhile since l have seen and or heard of cattywampus, l hear more cattywonkus’s than wampusses so it’s good news that your husband is keeping the wampus version alive 🙂 It’s the sort of thing Dr Seuss would have used.

    Oh l hear you on emails alright Lisa and as for distraction , let me tell yo …. ooher look at that a red fire truck on ice skates with an elephant driving it!!?

    Yes l think the vivid description of a female ghost holding a box might well be an officer’s ideal night 🙂

    Amy Winehouse, dang sad loss that girl could sing!

    Good answers all, wishing you a lovely Sunday 🙂
