This week’s Share Your World questions answered:

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?

IKEA. Because you can furnish a whole house in IKEA. Multiple houses, even.

What is the worst thing you ate recently?

Five expired fiber plus bars in one day. Just two days ago. I became so bloated. BLOATED I tell you. And then a whole day of explosive noxious gasses. Ludicrous. I’m only just back to normal. I think I may do it again.

Name five things you like watching…

The last several shows I have enjoyed watching have been Netflix originals.

Stranger Things

Black Mirror

The Get Down

…and some of the Marvel Universe shows…

A movie I have enjoyed recently is Captain Fantastic. And I’m not just saying that because today’s Just Jot it January prompt is ‘Fantastic’. Honestly. I loved this movie, which is about a father whose wife has succumbed to mental illness, who raises his several children ‘off the grid’. It is zany and touching. They celebrate Noam Chomsky day!

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

I found myself smiling this week at simple, natural things. Standing water next to a pond (little puddle, big puddle)… Headlights from across the pond, stretched out in the mirror of its surface into long exclamation points… Tiny droplets on the bare twigs of branches in a tree, twinkling in the streetlights at night… Another bare tree which looked to me like a man standing with his arms outstretched… I could try to write poetry about these things, but they’re so nondescript and oft-sung that the eyes of the reader would slide right off the lines of the poem, lol. But it’s nice to notice natural beauty and to fall into the mood of awe and appreciation. I am grateful for this.
