When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?

Probably pencil since it has an eraser but due to past carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis my handwriting is illegible. My handwriting could be the but of those doctor handwriting jokes. Back when doctors used to write paper prescriptions. In New York doctors usually no longer write paper prescriptions as per a New York State Law requiring all prescriptions to be submitted directly to the patients pharmacy via computer.

Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?

Dancer. I admire the Nicholas Brothers, Gregory Hines and Savion Glover.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?

That’s a difficult question to answer. I used to be good at public speaking because it was a requirement of my previous job. Now you could not get me up on a podium unless you paid me $1 Million dollars. Nerves, anxiety and panic attacks would have me running off the stage, then again that would make a good topic, “Why I suck at public speaking.”

The only other subject I could discuss without appearing to be a complete idiot or fool would be on the subject of Autism, my relationship with my brother Stephen and Why Adult Siblings of Autistic Adults Matter.  Autism programs, services and organizations only cater to parents and once the parents are deceased and the individual with Autism is an Adult you are forgotten as well as the needs of Adult Siblings which are not addressed.  There is a serious Lack of Support Services for Adult Siblings trying to take of their developmentally disabled siblings.  My Life is a constant Struggle.

What are you a “natural” at doing?

Writing and photography.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Warm weather. Looking forward to my vacation next month and summer.

Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.

Yes. All Courtesy of Uncle Sam. I’m a United States Army Veteran and road marches and running were my way of Life from Nov. 1977 – Nov. 1981. I was in excellent physical condition back then and easily completed every physical task. I did do one of those corporate sponsorship cancer walks a several years ago. I think it was a 5K. I was younger then so it was doable now I get winded just going up and down the subway stairs. I don’t have the stamina or energy I had when I was younger.

No swimming as I can’t swim and my bike riding came to an end after childhood. I have vision and balance issues so bikes are not my friends.

 

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

 

I’m grateful to have gotten through the week and made it to Palm Sunday which I enjoyed. I’m also grateful that the weather in New York has finally warmed up.  I’m looking forward to Easter.

Share Your World: Ribbonrx Edition: April 3, 2017

For those of you who are missing out on Share Your World, Ribbonr.com has come up with some questions for this week. Feel free to play along. You can add your answers below my reblog.

What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

I would like to return to live human interaction whenever I must call for customer service. I’m tired of machine voices telling me Press 1 for This or Press 2 for That. Let’s bring back Living Operators/Customer Service Agents.

What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?

Suspense/Thrillers/Mysteries ~~ Sometimes Ghost or Horror stories. The Others with Nichole Kidman was a great movie as was the film Shelter Island with Leonardo DiCaprio. Also The Sixth Sense. Any book by Anne Rice or Stephen King. Anne Rice stands out as #1 for me.

How often do you people watch?

All the time as a Museum Security Guard that’s what I get paid to do. Especially when I worked days. You’d be surprised at how many adults, yes grown ass people either touch or attempt to touch the artworks!  Go figure!!  Since I started working nights last year that problem does not arise as the visitors are on their way home when my shift begins.

What have you only recently formed an opinion about?

That Benadryl and Nivea are the best thing for allergies even skin rash allergies.

That the Dominican guard who is around my age maybe younger is rather handsome. He is also a nice guy with funny jokes.  Don’t get alarmed peoples!! We are just friends.

Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last Week was rough so I’m glad that it is over. Looking forward to Palm Sunday and the start of Holy Week.

 

Those of you old enough (50+) will get the reference with this record and one of my above answers.

black-or-green-olivesEver ran out of gas in your vehicle?

No. Never. When I was able to drive I always made sure that I had a full tank of gas.

Which are better: black or green olives?

Neither one. Olives are too salty and I cannot eat them. High Blood Pressure. Pass the grapes or blueberries instead.

If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?

Africa. For me it would be like going home since that is where my ancestors are from. Not so much explore as it would be a Pilgrimage. Return to the Motherland. Fortunately I’ve made many friends from Africa via Blogging so I will go to Africa some day.

Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?

 

Habakkuk 2:2

King James Version (KJV)

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that reads it.

Proverbs 4:7

King James Version (KJV)

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

And anything my parents used to say.  Here are three from my Dad Edward G. Palmer:

I complained because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.

It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.

Get something in your head not just on your head.

And from my Mom Mable Palmer:

If you mess up. You clean up.

God don’t like Ugly.

What goes around comes around.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Grateful that today is my Birthday and God has allowed me to see another year of life. Happy to be 58!! Looking forward to my upcoming vacation starting Friday. Planning to spend time with my brother Stephen and relax.

When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)?

No.

Do you chew your pens and pencils?

No. They don’t taste good.

Are you a collector of anything?  If so what?

I used to collect African-American figurines and when I had my own place. I had a Curio Cabinet to display them but they are all in storage now since my space is way too small to be collecting anything.

What size is your bed? 

Full size. Big enough for me and my cat Sylvester.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

 

Okay I’m a week late answering this Share Your World. Shows you my hectic life of commuting plus spending hours at work so I’m backtracking.

Good Weather and warm temps. After that horrible disgusting snowstorm last week the temps went into the 50s & 60s. Much better.

Looking forward to my Birthday, Monday, Feb. 27th.

574aeef5778cd-imageDo you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

I sleep with comforters and/or blankets so once I make the bed I don’t get under my sheets.

Have you stolen a street sign before?

Before? Does this mean I should be in the habit of stealing street signs? This is a weird question. In New York they are so high up off the ground plus they are securely anchored/bolted in place it would be near to impossible to steal one unless it fell to the ground after getting hit by a car, bus or truck. Anyway with all the snow, ice, sleet and freezing rain why in the heck would I be outside in bad weather, climbing up a pole to steal a street sign??

Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?

I don’t cut coupons. I don’t have time since I spend long hours on my job. Most stores have Rewards Cards in which the discounts are already included. I use those Discount Reward Cards at the grocery store, Petco, Beauty stores, and Walgreens, Rite-Aid and Duane Reade.

Do you have freckles?

No.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

 

Grateful to have made it safely through the nasty snow, sleet, ice, freezing rain and below freezing temps!!  Looking forward to warmer weather.

Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?

Being that both my room-mate and I are single there is very little in the fridge, unless my room-mate has one of his dinner parties and unlike the photo Sylvester does not get inside the fridge. Usually our fridge contains condiments, yogurt, Snapple, maybe beer or wine, and some leftover Chinese food, but again no cat.

Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?

I suppose you are referring to the fridge. Since there is very little inside it does not make much difference. If however you mean on my plate I prefer to keep my foods separate not mixed together.

Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?

I suppose I pretty much like all types of books unless they are too technical or involve romance. I don’t like romance books. Way too creepy, stupid, corny and unrealistic.  My favorite genres are Horror, Murder Mysteries, History and some Sci Fi.

Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?

Pretty much all of my body is telling me to sleep. I’m a sleep deprived insomniac.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Being that the U.S. is in political and social upheaval I suppose I’m glad to have gotten through the week. The Muslim Ban has gravely and adversely affected my Muslim co-workers and the functions of my museum workplace. Basically people are living in fear and uncertainty. Given that you don’t know what horror will next come out of the Oval House it’s best not to look forward. America is in total chaos. We are on extremely shaky ground.
