Share Your World: November 26, 2018

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


Here are her questions for the week:

If your five year old self woke up in your current body, what would happen, what would you say?

”What the hell?!?!”

What is a relationship deal breaker for you?  Whether you are talking about a romantic one, a friendship or a related to sort of relationship?

Lying to me.  I don’t trust easily.  And it’s unlikely to be regained once irreparably damaged.

Is there something out there, a thought, an idea, a current event, or a fear that you find deeply unsettling?

The current state of our planet.  Be it melting ice caps, plastic flotillas in our oceans, our tainted food and water supply, or the lack thereof of either, fossil fuel use…and depletion.  It’s pretty fucking sobering.  What will we, as a species, face in the future?  Near future, maybe?  If not me personally, what about my kids, my grandchildren?  That it’s generally brushed under the rug by industry and government is terrifying.  Could it be too late to reverse at this point anyway?

And one that is a bit whimsical:

If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

Something stupid…again.


What were you grateful for this week?  Something that brought some joy into your world?

It may sound lame, but I’d pick decorating for Christmas.  I’ve always loved the feel of the house after everything is lit and hung and glittery.

I’m not into the commercial part of Christmas.  But a cozy house that’s trimmed kinda gives me the feels.  😃


My songs of the day are:

”Decoration Day” by Cowboy Junkies

”Fear Of The Dark” by Iron Maiden

”Tellin’ A Lie” by American Aquarium

”Get Myself Arrested” by Gomez

“High 5 (Rock The Catskills)” by Beck

”Decoration Day Blues” by Howlin’ Wolf

”In Fear Of Fear” by Bauhaus

”Lie To Me” by The Pretenders

  4. No tree for us this year. Just too busy and not in a festive mood. Didn’t even do a competition for the kids. Usually we hold one every year.

  5. I kind of hate Christmas. The commercial part, yes, but also the guilt I feel at not being able to afford to give as many gifts as others do. It shouldn’t matter, but it makes me feel like shit when I’m sitting there on Christmas morning with my mom, 2 sisters, brother-in-law, nephew, and my own immediate family… and my nephew has a bazillion presents from his parents and my sisters give my mom tons of gifts… and I can’t do that for my kids or my mom or for anyone. (Not that I’d even know what to buy… ugh… yeah, I hate so much about Christmas.)

    This year, for some reason, I enjoyed decorating more than usual. Hell, enjoying it at all is “more than usual” because I usually hate nearly everything about Christmas.

    Yes, I’m a joy to be around.

    • Hahaha! Maybe you’re like the Grinch, and your heart is growing as we speak? I hate the commercial part of it too. I enjoyed going overboard when the boys believed in the magic. It’s differeny now. We’ve made a rule that the grown-ups buy only stocking stuffer stuff, and buy gift gifts for the boys only. And even they aren’t getting tons anymore. I like the season a lot more when it isn’t a pressure cooker, last minute sweaters that nobody wants, or something far worse.

      • I enjoyed it more when the kids still believed in Santa. But even then… I don’t know… I was always at least a little uneasy. Even receiving gifts stresses me out. I don’t have room in my house for lots of “extra” stuff. And I hate feeling like anyone spent money on something I know I’m not going to use. I start thinking about the bills I could pay with that money instead. So festive. 😐

        I’m definitely like the Grinch. But not the heart-growing part. More the beginning part of the story… 😛

      • Hahaha! Well, that was my favorite part. 😃😃
