This week’s questions and answers:
Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?
Quiet time alone is the only way I can recharge. Being around lots of people is exhausting. Going out with a couple of friends is fine, but large gatherings are difficult for me. Saturday will be one of those days – a large room full of people sucking away my life force. Don’t get me wrong, they’re all wonderful people doing what I really love (spinning wool, etc.) but it’s a very long day that takes me a week to recover from.
What is the most number of blankets you’ve ever had on your bed?
Five, just last month. Then I got smart and bought an electric blanket. Best.Purchase.Ever. I’ll never be without one again.
You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?
Yep. If the people are interesting enough and I want to talk to them I’d rather be alone so I wouldn’t be distracted by someone who might have a different agenda than I do.
Do you like talking to people on the phone? Or do you prefer voice mail or email?
I love email for its ease and speed, but you can’t convey everything with the written word. Like sarcasm. Sarcasm often falls flat via email but I can totally tear someone down on the phone. I find that I like talking on the phone a lot lately. Since there will be no interrogation afterwards, it’s actually quite pleasant. I thought that 1000 minutes a month would be plenty (it is 16 hours, after all) but those minutes have been getting used up before the month is over. Who knew I had that much to say? I hate to leave a voicemail, though, and avoid it whenever possible. If you answer my call, I’ll talk your ear off, but if you don’t, well, it might just be as if I had never phoned at all…
Today Cee posted a fabulous picture with the title ‘Bee Seen‘ and I can’t help but add my own “bee” picture in imitation 🙂
