What’s your most memorable (good or bad) airplane flight?
Many years ago I booked a flight to Gran Canaria, one of the Spanish, Canary Islands. Only three people boarded the plane – I was one of them. It made me feel very uncomfortable; an almost empty plane is spooky. I looked at all the vacant seats and wondered what had happened.
An airplane with passengers to Gran Canaria had been forced to land at a different airport, due to engine trouble. Around 150 people had missed their connecting flight and were probably very upset, while I enjoyed the first class service on the plane. I played gin rummy with the flight attendant; we ate and drunk pretty much everything the first class had to offer. It was a fun trip.
How many bones, if any, have you broken?
I think I broke my little toe at least once when a doorframe jumped in my way and I broke my nose when a squash ball hit me. Nothing major *Knock on wood*.
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know)
I would like to invite Marlene Dietrich, Charlie Chaplin, and Peter Ustinov. I find all three of them fascinating, and I would love to know more about their lives.
I admire Marlene Dietrick for the courage she showed during Word War II. I adore Charlie Chaplin for all his work, and I have the utmost respect for Sir Peter Ustinov, one of the greatest raconteurs of our time. Meeting all three of them would be fun (for me).
Make a Currently List: What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating, needing, wanting, and missing right now?
Reading: “Everything I never told you” by Celeste Ng. If you are on the lookout for a good book, that’s the one to get. I have to warn you; you won’t blog for a few days.
Listening: To “All blues’d up.” Various blues artists sing Janis Choplin songs. I found the CD in a bargain bin for 99cents. What a treat it is. I am working, and my tail is wagging. 🙂
Eating: Black bean chili, we were both hungry for it. I mad a big pot, and now the kitchen will be clean for two days.
Needing: Vacation, a few days vacation would be nice. We are both overworked.
Wanting: Nothing really. I have everything I (we) need.
Missing: My friend! She passed away two years ago and not a day goes by without me missing her.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I have been incredibly lucky last week. I dislocated my thumb and pulled a tendon in my right arm when I tried to be superwoman. Surprisingly enough I can still work and type and I am not in pain. I wear a nice splint in the evenings and during the night. I am very grateful; it could have been so much worse.
Next week is the last “normal” work week, then I have only smaller projects and will have time to enjoy the summer. I am looking forward to it.
