Mega Share Your World For 2 May 22

Badge created by Paula

First, thank you to Paula for the newly designed "Share Your World" badge. Guess I can retire mine…

I’ll find another use for the color bars, I promise.

Melanie has declared this Bloggers Take The Wheel week, and has a veritable plethora of questions from lots of bloggers. Get ready for lots of GIF’s from Giphy.

People read my blog for the GIF’s. I need to learn to make my own…

Tena asks: What constitutes a sandwich in your opinion? Is it only the standard two slices of bread, filling (including spreads or meats and cheeses and veggies), put together in a stack? That definition is a little restrictive. An Italian beef sandwich, for example, is a pile of Italian beef (shredded rump roast simmered in giardiniera and/or pepperoncini) stuffed inside a chunk of French bread that’s been split. A hot dog is the dog and whatever condiments you like (me, none) inside a hot dog bun. A gyros is lamb (or beef or pork) that’s been cooked on a spit and carved off onto pita bread, with onions, tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce. The pita is then wrapped around the stuffings and eaten. You could consider tacos to be a form of sandwich. So, no, it can be more than just meat, cheese, veggies, and condiments between two slices of bread.

Marilyn asks: Are ‘strong’ and ‘tough’ in regard to character the same thing or different? Please explain your reasoning for either side you pick. No. Being tough means you’re willing to fight for something, and not every person with a strong character is.

One of the strongest and toughest men of all time.

Paula has a bunch of questions about RSVP’s, of which I’ll answer one: What’s your opinion on RSVPs? I always heard that RSVP meant to reply if you are coming, not if you aren’t. Evidently, I was either wrong or the definition has changed since John was a lad. As for the other questions, I don’t have my Emily Post handy…

As far as I know, not Emily Post

Sadje asks: Do you think Hell has walls? No, but it has a ceiling…

Jim has a few good ones:

What would you name your boat if you had one? "Yappity Gums" (I wish I still had the cartoon that would explain that: it showed a man and a woman walking to their boat thus named, and him saying "I named it for your mother.")

What will finally break the internet? Someone big sitting on it.

If you had to change your name, what would your new name be, and why would you choose that name? George Benjamin William Henry Harrison, Rex for short.

What are some things that sound like compliments but are actually insults?

  • You look great for your age!
  • Your girlfriend is smoking hot!
  • You clean up nicely!

If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask? Does my ass look big in these?

Marilyn asks: How many bloggers are trying to balance the likelihood that WordPress will hike prices against the near certainty that their computers are ready to roll over and die? I have no idea. Probably quite a few.

Finally, Cyranny asks: What’s the most impressive, or oddest thing you’ve ever fixed with duct tape (or something similar)? The zipper on The back of my laptop case broke, so I duct taped it together. Actually worked pretty well.

  1. What an amusing post! I gotta a lot of laughs from this! I love the one about WordPress, which they have revamped their pricing Btw.

    1. I know. I like the software, not so sure about the hosting anymore. I have experience running it on my computers, so I wouldn’t be at a complete loss if I moved to BlueHost …

      1. As you know, I have Blue Host for Eugis Causerie and I use WP.Com for Eclectic Brew. Since WP.com changed their pricing plans, Blue Host, and depending on what software you add, a little less. IMO, Blue Host is not much better or worse then the others. I found their customer service excellent. My biggest problem is Blue Host seems to run slower than WP.com.

        1. Sometimes you don’t mind spending a little more for high-quality customer service. It was the reason IBM was so successful. There were better computers, but no one could match IBM’s service….

  2. 🤣🤣 Oh my gosh. Thank you John for Sharing Your Hilarious World. It must be a party every day at your house, with that sparkling wit! 😀 (no sarcasm or back-handed compliment intended). Absolutely stunning answers to all the questions you did!! 😂😅😆🤣 Uh, don’t retire the bars just yet. You haven’t seen next week’s SYW have you? No of course not.😜 Have a fabulous week and congrats on another successful year as the best A-Z moderator (you were again this year, weren’t you?) going! 🙂

    1. Yes, I was a moderator, but J, who’s the leader of the group, JR, who sets up the signup forms, and Anjela, who did all the graphics (and an astounding job she did, too) did most of the work. I set up the new simulcast blog, and I think Zalka did a lot of the Twitter chats. We all have our little jobs…

      I haven’t gotten rid of the bars, don’t worry. Right now I’m trying to figure out how to use a presentation tool (like PowerPoint) because I have an idea for another thing that uses the color bars, so that might be ready next week, I’m not sure…

      It’s actually pretty quiet here. It’s just noisy in my head.
