SHARING THE WORLD, THANKSGIVING EDITION – Marilyn Armstrong

Share Your Thankful World


Are you an Early to bed, early-to-rise person, a night owl, and daytime sleeper-dozer, or an ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ person?   

Age has made me reconsider the idea of sleep. I need to get some or I just can’t function.

Now, if only I could give up on reading at night … I go to bed early enough, but then, there’s that book.

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

People think I’m a lot better a photographer than I am. I do take pretty pictures, but I don’t process them nearly as well as others do. I’m not even in the same class.

No matter what anyone tells you, a good eye does not overcome quality issues.

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

He has come bearing cruise tickets. He is our lottery vacation Penguin.

Aliens have landed. Do they come in peace?

I doubt it. They landed? They have an agenda. Maybe it’s benign, but until I know what they want, I’m being really careful.

I play with robots! Especially Robbie.

Really really careful.

What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week?

Garry’s ears are good and my son is doing Thanksgiving. Hallelujah!

  1. I think the penguin would say, “you got to go south, it’s way too cold here”.

    • Thanks, Su. Certainly something to be thankful for.

      In retirement, I’m a stay up later for my own late-late show, usually an old 30’s film.

      • 😀 I’m still a morning person — something that only began (with a shock) with the birth of my son. But I’m starting to need less sleep, so perhaps I can start my own late show too. I’m overdue a visit to Hitchcock’s oeuvre.

        • So much Hitch to choose from. Have you seen “Shadow of a Doubt” recently. It’s early 40’s Hitch with Teresa Wright and Joseph Cotten as a sublimely nice villain.

          • Probably not since the 1980s when I was writing a thesis on thrillers and spent a summer in the AV library watching everything I could lay my hands on, alongside two contemporary Kiwi thrillers both by women directors. Best few months ever.
            I think my favourite Hitchcock is probably The Lady Vanishes — it really is very very funny.

            • Su, I love the original “Lady Vanishes”. The remake with Elliot Gould was a pale imitation. Margaret Rutherford badly missed.
              I also liked the original “The 39 steps” with Robert Donat and Madeline Carroll (Garry drooling over Carroll)

              • Hehe. I haven’t seen the remake (probably just as well 😀). I like The 39 Steps too. There was a remake of that about 10 years ago which was quite good.
                Funnily enough, I’ve been re-reading the John Buchanan novels. So terribly imperialist, sexist, classist, racist and of their time, but oddly entertaining.
