Share Your World For December 21, 2020

Time once again for that weekly feature, Share Your World! Melanie has the questions, rules, badges, pingbacks, and everything else you need to play along. And awaaaaaaaay we go!

What is your favorite type of cookie (they’re called biscuits in Europe I believe)? My favorites are either oatmeal raisin or chocolate chip, but really, I’ll eat any kind (and it shows).

If you could choose one age and remain that forever, what would it be and why? Probably 25. I was done with school, married and working for a living, but the world still seemed like a wide-open place.

Do you have a traditional drink during the holiday season? I don’t drink anymore, but coffee with Bailey’s Irish Cream was a favorite. Now it’s just coffee, water, lemonade, or root beer.

Are you able to still believe in holiday magic as you did when you were a child? Actually, I probably believe in it more now than I did then. I was a bit of a cynic when I was a kid. I still am, but I’m older now (and it shows).

Gratitude Section: If you haven’t already done so, could I ask you to vote in my latest Battle of the Bands? I’d be grateful if you did.

  1. The Cookie Monster:) I love my German cookies…a cookie dough that I roll out cut out round holes using a shot glass, bake for 7-10 min. Cool, place raspberry jam in the middle and roll it in icing sugar. I wish I could be in my early 30s. I had pain but not quite as severe and I could do so much more so I will just keep thinking I am in my 30s when I was also much thinner. I. Grateful for my friends including my hubby. I am still a kid for Christmas and love to decorate and truly believe Christmas is for everyone. Oh, I bought a rolling toy with a fishy attached to it for the cats….it rolled into our vent and it’s still going. We can’t reach it. The drink I love is called advocat from Holland. It is made with 5000 egg yolks and 45 proof. It is so creamy and so good.

  2. In Australia root beer is called sarsparilla and cookies are biscuits. And I am a fan of both 😉

    1. We also have sarsaparilla, and it’s different from root beer (though I don’t know how). A third drink is birch beer, which again is the same thing, only different… I like all three, particularly very cold…

    My goodness!! (I admit I copied and pasted that. it’s amazing. Uh, where were we?
    Okay
    I happen to love oatmeal raisin, but chocolate chip is the world wide favorite in the polls so far. But like you, I mostly won’t turn down any cookie/biscuit offered to me (and it shows too). I chalk it up to my dwindling metabolism as I age in place. Men have it easier on that front, in my opinion, folks tend to compare them to Santa Claus. Women just get fluffier… O_o

    A truly Merry Christmas and a very joyous New Year to you and yours John!

    1. That’s why I grew the beard, so I’d resemble Jolly Old Saint Nick rather than some fat guy with gray hair. Remember the windmill cookies, which were almond-flavored (the good ones actually had slivers of almonds in them) and actually looked like windmills?

      ASCII art (like what Mike did) is a dying art. It used to be easier in the days with fixed-width fonts, because if you drew a vertical line, it would stay where you drew it. Duck “ASCII art” (Ducking is like Googling, but using DuckDuckGo, which doesn’t track you); there are a couple of big galleries out there…

      Merry Christmas!

    1. We’ve been pretty much on our own here since we moved and never had kids, so Christmas for us has always been a lowkey affair. There can be magic in that, though…

  4. I know what you mean about believing in the magic that’s good for the heart and soul. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood…. or continue a happy childhood.

    1. To me, it’s not so much magic as miracles. We see little ones every day: the sun comes up, you wake up in the morning, the sun goes down, etc. Nothing earth-shattering, just life, the greatest miracle of all…
