E M Kingston has started a new Q&A prompt called Sunday Ramble so I thought I would join in this week to get the ball rolling. Here are her questions.
Would you rather be alone or be in a large group of people?
I don’t enjoy crowds. I didn’t even before Coronavirus. I never felt comfortable attending parties or events where there would be a lot of people I didn’t know, especially if it was going to be noisy and crowded. I prefer to socialise with a small group or just a couple of people but I am perfectly happy alone.
Would you rather live on the beach or live in the mountains?
This is a tough one for me. I love having mountains around. It’s one of the things I enjoy about living in Tasmania, the views of mountains in the distance. South Australia is largely flat. However, I’ve probably spent a large part of my adult life living near the beach and I love that too. So, I’d have to say that I’d probably prefer to be beside the seaside.
Would you rather tell people how you feel or keep your feelings to yourself?
I prefer to keep my feelings to myself although I don’t know that I am all that good of it. I might not say much but my face probably gives me away.
Would you rather be filthy rich or just live comfortably?
What I want is to live comfortably, not having to worry about bills, the cost of food and petrol or any of those things. I’d like to be able to buy new clothes without worrying about whether I can afford them or not, and when I feel it is safe to do so, I’d like to be able to go on holidays when I want to. I certainly don’t think being filthy rich would make me unhappy though. If fortune smiled on me and I won the lottery I’d still live the same way, comfortably but not ostentatiously. I would be able to do the things that I mentioned above, treat myself to some new toys like computer and camera equipment and vintage dolls. I’d also have money to help people and causes I cared about which I would do as anonymously as possible.
Would you rather watch a new movie at home or at the theatre?
I rarely went to the movies even before Covid. This was partly because living in the country there was no cinema I could easily get to and partly because there are not very many new movies I care about. I did go to the cinema in Burnie a couple of months ago to see the film about Aretha Franklin and I enjoyed that. It is nice to see a movie at a cinema sometimes. It’s an outing, and if you go to a matinee the theatre is not usually crowded. I don’t really watch movies on TV all that much anyway so if it is one that I am really keen to see I’d probably rather go to the cinema to see it.
