Cee’s Share Your World for this week:
What’s your most memorable (good or bad) airplane flight?
I don’t really like flying so I can’t say there’s one that’s memorable for its goodness. It’s a toss-up between two for the worst:
- On a vacation to St. Thomas the whole Caribbean was engulfed in storms and many flights were cancelled. We got moved to a different return flight and airline. They walked us out to a bunch of quite small planes. I’m getting more and more panicky, thinking “these are too small!”… when we moved past one of them and stopped and the next — one so small it had been completely hidden by the other small one. They had to seat us by weight to keep it balanced.
- On the other occasion I’d gone to Springfield for some hearings and again storms messed up the flights. I was never too happy about the small commuter flights from Chicago to and from the capitol but this time I got bumped over to another teeny plane and going into Miegs Field (downtown Chicago, right at the lake) instead of back to O’Hare (where my car was parked). The weather was still rocky and, even with my seat belt on, the plane bounced so hard several times that my head hit the ceiling.
How many bones, if any, have you broken?
Zero. Lucky me. But then I wouldn’t wish the decades of issues I’ve had with muscles on anyone — a broken bone would have taken far less time to heal…
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know)
Nelson Mandela, Thomas Jefferson, DaVinci
Make a Currently List: What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating, needing, wanting, and missing right now?
Reading: Sarah Graves’ first Lizzie Snow novel
Watching: right this second I’m watching The Politician’s Husband. But the fave I’m watching lately (just came back on schedule last week) is The Fosters
Listening: my favorite playlist lately has been one I put together of a lot of stuff from the television show Nashville
Eating: I’ve been on a phase of eating Amy’s dairy free, gluten free burritos. Also making lots of my avocado chocolate mousse recipe.
Needing: I always feel a little edgy about anyone from a first world country saying they “need” something. I have some things I want. But in terms of need, I’m way too fortunate to claim I’m wanting for anything “needed”.
Missing: My CA friends and being in Marin.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
A new pain doctor for my mother not only looks promising for helping to relieve her arthritis pain, but is incredibly nice and actually prepared to delve into issues as if being 90 means you’re still entitled to good care — something we’ve struggled to find in most doctors. I’m looking forward to a fairly quiet week in which I’m hoping to get a little more writing done than I have been.
