Java Jive

Plinky asked, “Do you need cof­fee to wake up in the morn­ing?” I would­n’t say I need it, because I don’t drink it every day. I do, how­ev­er, enjoy it, espe­cial­ly if I’m able to sit down and sip a…

Road Trip Essentials

Plinky said, “List your must-haves for a suc­cess­ful road trip.” Assum­ing you’ve already got a reli­able vehi­cle, the most impor­tant thing is good com­pa­ny — some­one who under­stands that the jour­ney is at least as impor­tant as the des­ti­na­tion, some­one who…

Meow vs. Arf

Live­jour­nal’s Writer’s Block ques­tion of the day is, “Cats or dogs– which do you pre­fer, and why?” I don’t pre­fer one over the oth­er. I’ve shared my life with cats and dogs from my ear­li­est years and love both. My parents…

Hats!

Plinky asked, “What type of hat suits your per­son­al­i­ty best? A base­ball cap? Fedo­ra? Beanie?” Hmm. I don’t know the names of many types of hats, but a cloche comes to mind. I don’t own one, but I’d like to…

City Living

Plinky asked, “If you had to live in a large city for a year, which would you pick? What if you had to pick a big city in anoth­er coun­try?” I’d be hap­py to go live in Seat­tle or Boston…

On Religion

Plinky asked, “Do you con­sid­er your­self reli­gious?” Not at all. I was always more spir­i­tu­al than reli­gious, but I was raised in a very reli­gious fam­i­ly in which I was forced to par­tic­i­pate in their South­ern Bap­tist church. I started…

On Politics

Plinky asked, “Where do you fall on the polit­i­cal spec­trum?” That depends on where you’re stand­ing. In Europe, I’d be con­sid­ered con­ser­v­a­tive, appar­ent­ly. In the U.S., I’m pro­gres­sive, so I’m con­sid­ered a flam­ing lib­er­al.  I agree with the lib­er­tar­i­ans on…

TV Commercials?

Plinky asked, “Com­mer­cials these days: Most­ly enter­tain­ing, or most­ly annoy­ing?” How would I know? Seri­ous­ly, who watch­es com­mer­cials? Most of what I watch is online, and I don’t pay atten­tion to the ads or they’ve been edit­ed out. If I’m…

Donating My Time

Plinky asked, “Do you vol­un­teer?” Not at the moment, unfor­tu­nate­ly 🙁 I have in the past, with an online safe­ty group, Girl Scouts, home­school­ing groups, Freecy­cle, and oth­er orga­ni­za­tions. I’m look­ing for some­thing to do again, since I find myself…
