Share Your World 2015 — Week 43

share your world

It is nice to be able to participate in Cee’s Share Your World again. The last one I did was week 13…and here we are at week 43 already. I’ve been gone for 40 weeks!? Eek! Time flies. Here are this week’s questions…

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

I would probably never be on a debate team. I’m really not a fan of having an audience and when I do, I would rather present to you what I have learned and have you interpret rather than persuade you of my view. Debates are fun to watch, but I think I get more out of hearing others’ interpretations. If I had to pick a topic, maybe it would be mental health or low vision rehabilitation.

Whatโ€™s your strongest sense?

I think it would be vision. I have always been a visual learner. Listening to a lecture never really worked for me. I always had to make notes or draw diagrams to really get the information to sink in.

What would you name the autobiography of your life?

Agh, the titles I come up with are usually so underwhelming. Writing an autobiography was a project I had to do in the 5th grade. I came up with the totally original title of “Me, Myself and I”. Perhaps “The Misadventures of Somber Scribbler”. It sounds like a kid’s picture book, lol.

List your favorite flavors or types of tea.

My favourite tea is the “Birthday Cake” tea from David’s Tea. It has rainbow sprinkles in it which is fun and it’s a nice alternative to dessert and the associated calories!

I am also a fan of “Coffee Pu’erh” from the same place. Obviously, it tastes like coffee.

Looking at their website now, they have one called “Oh Canada!”. It has a hint of maple to it. I’d like to try that one.

In terms of the less fancy types of tea, it’s green or mint…or mint green, even better!

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

Last Week: I got through all the things I was dreading unscathed. I am grateful for this and part of me knew I would get through, but it is always good to remind myself. I tend to forget and start dreading everything again when the next week starts up.

This week: The last few weekends have been really busy, so I am looking forward to this coming weekend which is going to be quieter. I’ll still have to drive out and spend a day with my mother in law, but at least there wont be a crowd. We’ll watch Halloween movies with her.

    You said on my coffee post that you don’t like flavored coffees. I tend to stay away from flavored teas – just a plain black or green tea for me. “The Misadventures of Somber Scribbler” does sound like a children’s book. But a good one ๐Ÿ˜‰

      It’s weird right? Coffee has to be strictly black, but tea is a free for all (except for the ones that taste like flowers, no thank you). I do take it without anything in it, like the coffee.

        I use a little touch of honey in tea, but I agree about the flower thing. When I drink coffee, I want to drink coffee, and when I drink tea I want tea!

        Exactly. If I wanted to ingest flowers, I’d go grab some from the garden, why go to all the trouble of making tea? lol.
        I do honey once and a while too, usually for a sore throat

    A lovely update… Plain old English tea for me, strong-enough-to-stand-a-SPOONIE-in… but I love almost all flavoured coffees.

    ‘The misadventures of Somber Scribbler’ would make a fab title for your Autobiography.

    Its always nice to read from you. I learn a lot. I used to like coffee and tea but doctor’s orders not to enjoy them anymore. But sometimes I have cheat days and drink green tea latte. Yum! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Rainbow sprinkle tea may be enough to convert me after all! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I sort of wonder about the rainbow sprinkled tea, don’t the sprinkles get all melted and nasty? I’m a black tea fan, I love it super strong with milk and sugar.
