Time for this week’s Share Your World from Sparks From A Combustible Mind.

Here are her questions for the week:

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’m a night owl.  Always have been.

I’ve learned to really love early mornings though.  I can’t get enough of the peacefulness of the day awakening, especially on a vacation.

What are some misconceptions about your hobby, should you have a hobby?

Not sure.  I have several hobbies, but I don’t think there are really any misconceptions about any of them.

Well, I take that back.  One of my “hobbies” is hitting flea markets, peddlers malls, antique shops, auctions.  I guess it could be a perception that those of us who frequent such places may be hoarders or have junk sitting all over the place.  We really aren’t.  We just enjoy the hunt…and grabbing the occasional treasure.

A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?    

¿dónde está el baño?!?

Aliens have landed…do they come in peace?

If they’re anything like human beings, probably not.  They’re likely coming to exterminate and consume.

What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week?

I’m just thankful to be here.  I love my wife to bits, my boys are healthy, I have a home, clothes, work, transportation.  We certainly aren’t wealthy.  We don’t have a perfect little life, sheltered from strife or struggle.  But, all things considered, we’re very, very lucky.  I never want to lose sight of that or take that for granted, and pay it forward when possible.  Like my mother-in-law used to say, “It’s not about you”.

My songs of the day are:

”Emperor Penguin” by The Tragically Hip

“Alien” by Erasure

”Wrong Number” by Lucinda Williams

”The Night Owls” by Little River Band

”Morning Dew” by Grateful Dead

”Penguins” by Lyle Lovett

”Alien Being” by The Magnetic Fields

”Yer Wrong” by Langhorn Slim

  4. Can’t think of any penguin ideas outside of Happy Feet, bit Extremis with Gillian Anderson and Spaceman by Babylon Zoo have an outside of Earth feel
