Are you an Early to bed, early to rise, person, a night owl, and day sleeper/dozer, or an ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ person?
Even when I was a shift worker I could not go to bed early. So many people I know go to bed before 9pm. I just can’t do it unless I am sick. I would wake up way too early. Mostly though, I hated to go to bed early when I was working because I felt robbed of my own time if I did. I didn’t want my life to be just going to work, coming home, doing chores, and watching TV for an hour after dinner before going to bed. I’d sit up and go online or read or watch TV till late even if it meant only sleeping for a few hours a night some nights. Ten thirty was the earliest I could bring myself to go.
Now it is just a habit I can’t break to sit up to all hours.
What are some misconceptions about your hobby, should you have a hobby?
My hobby is collecting dolls and I find that a lot of people don’t get it as a hobby. There are those that say that dolls are creepy or who don’t understand why adults would like them. Luckily for me, the people I’m close to are more tolerant but I read a lot of this stuff online and feel so sorry for collectors whose adult children say nasty things about their dolls and tell them that they will go in the rubbish when mum is gone. I used to be a bit uncomfortable about admitting to collecting but now I don’t care. I like dolls, so sue me.
A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?
Sorry, I’ve got nothing. It does sound like the beginning of a joke.
Aliens have landed…do they come in peace?
Well, if they are up there observing us they are probably shaking their heads (if they have heads) over us but I’d like to think that if and when they come it will be in peace. Of course, my ideal is “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” not “V” and I love the idea of a United Federation of Planets although if there was one I doubt we’d be admitted until we grow up a bit.
What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week?
I had a really nice day out on Saturday with my friends Ally and Matt. They came and stayed with me on Friday night. We don’t get together very often so it was nice to spend a bit more time with them. I talked so much I was hoarse by bedtime.
