21 Days: Post 1000: Or The Things You Can't Possibly Know meme

I really can't believe this - this is my 1000th posting on Pandora - Queen of Denial. 1000 entries!

When I started this blog, I never thought it would be going on for so long. Having the blog daily over 100 days challenge has pushed up these numbers. Wow.

Anyway, as I have a busy day today, I will do these now, then get to the gym.

Questions, as always, from Bev at Sunday Stealing.

1. What color is your watch?

Black, with a black leather strap - it's a FitBit. My dress watch is a Cartier Tank knock off with a silver face. One day I would love a real one.

2. What do you think of when you think of Australia?

I call it home. It used to be the place of the fair go. Not any more.

3. Ever ridden on a roller coaster?

No. Not interested.

4. Birthstone? 


5. Do you go in at a fast food place or just hit the drive through?

I don't eat fast food, but when I did, I would hit the drive through.

6. Do you have any friends on facebook that you actually hate?

I don't hate anybody. There are a few people who I wonder how they became Facebook friends, but unless they give me grief, I don't unfriend them.

7. Do you have a dog?

No. I would love to have one.

8. Last person you talked to on the phone?

I just got off a call with Reindert, who is in Boulder, Colorado.

9. Have you met anyone famous? 

I've stood behind Emma Thompson and Geoffrey Rush in supermarket queues. I seem to run into Geoffrey Rush a bit. That's about as good as it gets here.

9. Any plans today?

I'm off to the gym in a bit for a quick workout. Meeting Emm for breakfast at 11. Have to go see Alice to do some party planning, then off to see Blarney and Maow Maow. I need to cook and tidy too. Busy day.

10.  Where are you right now? 

Sitting at home in Melbourne, Australia in front of my laptop.

11. Biggest annoyance in your life right now? 

The Australian Federal Government. It's not as bad as Trump, but they have made some awful decisions of late. The new media laws being one of those bad decisions. They really fucked up there.

12. Last song listened to? 

This. Which gets stuck in your head. you've been warned. But it gets into your hips and won't go away.

13. Last movie you saw? 

RBG - a documentary about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I have a new hero. She's awesome.  I saw this yesterday.

14. Are you allergic to anything? 

Sulpha drugs. I'm also slightly allergic to cats, but I build up a tolerance quickly when I have one at home. Thank goodness for antihistamines.

15. Favorite pair of shoes you wear all the time?

My Harley Davidson Biker Boots. They are truly awesome. And very comfortable.

16. What time is it? 

9.04 am. Oops, I've missed pump - cardio here I come.

17. Do any of your friends have children?

Lots of them, and most of them are nice people - the children that is.

18. Do you eat healthy? 

Big answer - yes. 95% of the time I'm gluten, dairy, sugar, caffeine and alcohol free. My diet is disgustingly healthy. The other five percent of the time - well yeah. The food wanker plan has been the best discovery of this year. I feel great.

19. What do you usually do during the day?

Work, walk, read, cook, write. In about that order.

20. Do you hate anyone right now? 

I don't hate anybody. I do strongly dislike Donald Trump, Peter Dutton and the uglies of the Liberal National Party (Americans, think the GOP). Hate is a too strong a word - and a waste of energy.

It's nice to see I'm not the only one who looks at their Facebook friends and wonders how they got to be friends with some of them. I blame it on the days of Farmville when we'd friend just about anyone willing to send gifts.
I forgot about sulpha drugs when thinking of allergies. That's a really inconvenient one when you're sick.
Our last answers are very much the same. Hate is a huge waste of time!
I hope you're enjoying your busy day.

Congratulations on 1000 posts! Nice....
RBG is an amazing person. We need three more of her! Thanks for the head's up on the Documentary.
Love your Harley Kicks.
Something totally off the topic, but I think of people who are politicians (and their supporters) who are only in it for themselves as the scum you skim off of soup when you are making broth. Yep. No hate, just that visual.
Have a lovely Monday and week.

Adding RGB to my "must watch" list.

Congrats on your 1000 posts. I have to go look up these media laws now, so I will know what will be headed our way, because I am thinking of taking on an editor's job at the local newspaper. But I'm not sure media is the place to be right now if you want to keep your head (and I mean that literally).

Hi Pand,

Congrats on 1000 posts.




Bev Sykes said...

Congratulations on 1,000 posts. I'm a big beyond that, but I know how much dedication that takes!

I haven't seen RBG, but it's on my list of movies I probably won't see because we almost never go to the movies.

I am loving that I am not the only person that wears a watch. I am old school like that. My phone is too big to carry with me all of the time.
Loved your answers! Have a nice week.
