Share Your World for 22 Nov 2021

For some reason, Melanie’s Share Your World post didn’t come through on the RSS feed. No worries, I just went to her site and got the questions…

What are some red flags to watch out for in daily life? The smell of bitter almonds. Drinks that are bubbling that shouldn’t be, and vice versa. Normally loquacious people that suddenly aren’t loquacious, and vice versa.

What obstacles would you include in the "world’s most amazing obstacle course”? A bottomless pit. A hornet’s nest.

Who is the best movie or book villain in your opinion? Hans Gruber, from Die Hard.

What, in your opinion, is the most beautiful/handsome part of your face? My nose.

Don’t you agree?

What are some foods you enjoy for your festive celebration dinners? Mac & Cheese, pizza rolls (dinner on New Year’s Eve), ribs, banana or coconut cream pie, Klondike bars….

  1. You have some great answers here and your nose looks great. I would have to say I would watch out for people screaming on the no one. Hans is great because Alan Rickman is great. He played a great romantic lead in “Truly, Madly, Deeply” and he won my heart in “Sense & Sensibility.” I would choose Peter Cushing in “Star Wars” but also Clifton Webb in “Laura”. anything with spiders would be an obstacle for me. The best part…My eyes and hair. That combined klondike bar sounds great and I would add a delicious German Torte.


    1. A German torte Klondike bar… now that WOULD be good.

      Cliftoin Webb was sufficiently nasty in “Laura.” Vincent Price was also in that one, but I don’t think you’d consider him evil, because he hadn’t gotten to his Dr. Phibes days yet.

      Glad you like my nose…


  2. Thank you John for Sharing Your World! The problems with this site from last week continue, and I’m still trying to clean up. They sent me an email that you had followed me again, I’m not sure why they keep messing with the connection, but it’s WordPress. They never explain their actions. You are a very handsome fella, and Mary is a lucky woman! Your nose is great! 😉 Alan Rickman (R.I.P.) was vastly underrated and come to think of it, a bit type cast as a villain. He was also Snape of the Harry Potter world, and scared the willies out of me. He nailed it. I hadn’t realized he was Hans Gruber too…but that explains why that guy gave me the chills as well! Wonderful GIFs once again this week (you do have an ‘eye’ for picking the most appropriate ones!) and the retro Klondike bar clip brought back a flood of memories! Have a splendid Turkey Day and a great week!


    1. Alan Rickman was a fine actor who’s remembered best for his villain roles, but he’s been in a few others. I think he was the romantic lead in one of those “old people fall in love” movies (the desperate attempt by Hollywood to get Baby Boomers back into theaters after they’ve spent the last 30 years ignoring us).

      My dad, who had a big nose (which he inherited from my grandmother) once said that he thanked God none of us got his nose. Personally, it never bothered me…


        1. Oh, you have to try the cones (just not the unicorn one; that’s just awful). The guys who run the “Good Mythical Morning” channel on YouTube ranked all the Klondike products here…

  3. Villains: Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) in No Country for Old Men (Coen Bros, based on Cormac McCarthy), and Frank Booth (the late Dennis Hopper) in Blue Velvet (David Lynch).


  4. Bitter almonds are not very common because, in fact, they have goodly amounts of cyanide and can be lethal. I fear they probably smell like regular almonds when roasted — I don’t know. They are not the same cultivar.

    One day many years ago I was in a gelato shop in Beacon Hill in Boston, and smelled a strong smell that was making me headachy and nauseous, but none of the other customers seemed to be suffering. I asked them what it was, and they said almonds.

    Enough said.
