Which tastes better: black or green olives?
To me neither. I don’t like olives no matter what colour they are.
What’s your favourite room in your home?
That’s a tough one. I like all the rooms in my house, some more than others perhaps. I’ve had quite a lot done to the place over the past few years and even though I have tried to keep it more neutral looking than I would really like the rooms are full of things that I love. I even like my least favourite room, the bathroom, a bit more now the walls are painted.
What fictional family would you be a member of?
When I started to think about this I really came up with more fictional families I would not like to be part of. The Simpsons – too dysfunctional and yellow, the Gilmores – tempting, I love Lorelei and Rory and I would like to live in Stars Hollow but I would not want to be related to Emily, the Brady’s – I could not live in a house that small with so many other people. Obviously I would not want to be a Walton either.
Being a member of the Addams family might be fun though and I wouldn’t have minded living at the Shady Rest with the Bradley’s as long as Kate wasn’t too keen for me to find a nice boy.
I would not like to be a Miss Bennett with a silly mother constantly fretting because I wasn’t married.
I did like Marilyn’s idea of the March family though and I’d have no trouble guessing who she would be, me too.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
On Saturday Naomi and I went to the Hobart Model Train Show where we enjoyed seeing the various miniature scenes created by keen modellers. We especially liked one layout representing the South Australian town of Gawler complete with a steam engine and heritage carriages like the ones we used to travel on frequently, familiar diesels and the “Redhen” railcars that we spent many hours cleaning.
