Brain Candy Share


Melanie has some brain candy questions for us to crunch…

1. “How many people in real life or on social media (including WordPress, which has become a rather social media site) do you consider good enough friends to help you ‘hide the dead body?’” [via Rory]

Since I don’t do anything illegal, I’m going to take this question in its most general sense… how many people can I count on to offer actual help (as opposed to virtual hugs) if I have a truly serious problem. I was in a down mood when I answered “none” to Rory, so I’ll amend that now. My daughters will always help me as much as they can, and vice versa. I have a few RL friends that would (and have) offered assistance to me, such as help with moving ~ not bodies, just boxes!

2. Are You Ready To Order? What Are You Having (craving) right now?

I’ve been craving a lobster roll for ages. It’s on my “bucket list” to nom up on my epic retirement trip across the country, which is likely just a dream now. But! A lobster food truck called “Cousins” has been making the rounds in Orange County, and I plan to meet them soon and get one! 😋 (To eat alone in my car…)

3. How’s the weather in YOUR neck of the woods?

Partially sunny and 72. 🌤

4. There has always been something. Before there was something, there was only nothing. Which do you think is more likely?

I’ll start with “I don’t know,” which is a fine answer to many questions and imo more people should avail themselves of it. But we are very uncomfortable with the anxiety of unknowns, so we attempt to fill them in with our limited human experience. I’m not sure why filling in unknowns with supernatural entities satisfies some people, but perhaps the magical area of my brain isn’t activated. In any case, my “feeling” is that something has always existed. Where it came from, how, when… I have no speculation other than I don’t believe in magic.

This week I am grateful for funny movies to distract me. 🤣

  1. I was tempted to say “get me into a philosophical argument, willya?” to the last one…

  4. I liked the last question, because it’s fun to ponder. As Roseanne Rosannadana said, “It’s always somethin’.”

  5. FYI… if you ever DO need help with a body, I’m only a couple hours away😉
    I think it would be more fun to meet at a museum or the Zoo or something, but🤷🏼‍♀️ it’s 2020, anything could happen!

  6. Thank you Paula for Sharing Your World! I’ve always wondered what is in a lobster roll? I’ve HEARD of them, but since lobster (actual real lobster) is a luxury item in land-locked Utah, I’ve never had a lobster roll. I have had lobster, and paid dearly for it, but to me it was more than worth it! Yummm! If you and Angie ever do a meet & greet, I want copiously detailed notes placed where I can read them right here from the comfort of my computer chair. I think you two would have loads of fun! Have a wonderful week!

  7. A good friend is someone you can call at 3 AM in the morning because your mom or your cat died.
