SHARING MY WORLD, WEEK 34

Thank you Cee for another fun round as we explore the inner secrets of This Blogger’s Life. Chapter 34.

What is your favorite smell? What memory does it remind you of?

Bread baking. Actually, anything baking. Coffee. They all remind me of … baked goods. And how good they go with coffee.

Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?

Good Day, Sunshine. They played it at my son’s fourth grade graduation and the kids sang along. I cried. And Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, especially the second movement, because I performed it often. It became a signature piece. As it is for many pianists.

Do you play video/computer game?  Which one(s) or most recent? 

No. I used to play Civilization and Caesar. Sim City. But that was long ago in a galaxy far, far away. Does Scrabble count? I play Scrabble. And solitaire.

Seven-Dwarfs

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

In one way or the other, all of them, depending on circumstance.

  • Sneezy during allergy season.
  • Doc when dealing with the doctors.
  • Bashful if you point a camera at me.
  • Dopey … well, you can guess.
  • Sleepy … another one I think you can work out for yourself.
  • Happy when a plan comes together.
  • Grumpy when the plan doesn’t come together, life falls apart, or any time I have to call customer service. I feel obliged to point out I’ve had to call at least one customer service each day for the last 5 days. This week, I am entirely Grumpy.

And that wraps it up folks!

Well not really. I thought I’d come back and add that eight dwarf — Achy, the arthritic dwarf. That’s when I just sit around creaking and making the occasional huffing noise as I try to get up on my feet.

  2. I like the smell of drop biscuits baking, bacon and coffee in the morning. I don’t drink coffee, but I like the smell, especially if it’s one of those specially flavored coffee.

    As for the biscuits….hey, I’m a Southerner. ‘Nuff said.

  4. Moonlight Sonata is such a gorgeous musical piece. Listening to it as I drink coffee WITH cake is close to perfectness.

    • It’s relatively easy compared to many other classical pieces … especially Beethoven. What I always liked about it, other than it being beautiful, is that you can really concentrate on giving it feeling rather than technique. The second movement, less well known than the first, is my favorite. Haunting.

    • If all those dwarfs are going to need coffee and cake, I’m going to have to start baking right now … and get an even bigger coffee pot. Maybe one of those gigantic ones they use at meeting, the urns?
