Share Your World

The last months I have been reading a lot more than writing. I discovered quite a few new blogs and news sites, etc. One of them is 61 Musings (from a 61 year old introvert)

Recently we had to do the Meyers-Briggs personality thingy at work and I was ‘diagnosed’ as an INFJ, which is supposedly less than 1% of the population. That made me actually really accept for the first time that I am more of an introvert, getting along well with people, but needing alone-time on a regular basis to recharge my battery. Not that I didn’t know this before, but labelling yourself as an introvert always sounded to me like some illness no-one really wants to have. Now I know (and feel) better about it 😉

Anyway, this is not the reason for this post. 61 Musings has a very interesting challenge on his blog, and I would like to participate and hopefully some of you will take the stick again from me and run with it.

There are 4 questions you need to answer – either on your own blog or here in the comments.

Here they are:

Would you rather be given R10 000 for your own use or R100 000 to give anonymously to strangers?

I like to give stuff away. I am not a hoarder at all. I easily give my books, that I have read, to anybody who loves reading too. I have given clothes and other household stuff to people who needed it, always stuff that is still in a good condition. And food – lots of times. But honestly, if someone gives me a choice about the above today, I will choose the R10 000. I work hard for my money and R10 000 will just give my nest egg a nice little boost. Someone else can be all altruistic today and share the R100 000 😉

When you’re 90 years old, what will matter most to you?

Well, I know that I am still going to reach the ripe old age of 105, so when I am 90, it will matter most that I am still healthy enough to drive my own car, go to the movies, read and listen to music. Maybe with a nice old guy in his 80’s.

Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?

This is almost like choosing between your children. It would either be chocolate or fudge. But if I was forced to choose, I would say chocolate fudge!

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?

Umbrella? I don’t own one and living in the Western Cape, where it rains the whole winter long, that is probably plain stupid. But I will rather wear a raincoat than carry an umbrella, because of the wind here as well. It is no secret that the wind in the Cape blows you away – even in winter – so no umbrella for me thanks.

Well – be good, and if you can’t be good, be better 😉

  1. Ek stem met Korrelkop. Sal die 100,000 vat, maar gedink aan 10 vir my en die res vir `n goeie saak.
    Koekies is ek nie mal oor nie. Kan ek vra vir Jack Daniels?
    Sambreel ry saam waar ek gaan, maar gewoonlik is `n hoed en windbreker goed genoeg. Is nie van die dans-in-die-reën soort nie. Kry te gou koud.

  2. Glad nie die vraag nie, oor die R10 000 of R100 000. Ek gee ook graag weg, en weet nie watter een ek sou kies nie, want om R100 000 weg te gee sal ook lekker wees. MAAR ek word WOEDEND as mense my goed ongevraagd vat. Steel. Ek wil graag gee wanneer ek so voel, nie wanneer die ander een so voel nie en dan dink ek gaan dit nie agterkom nie. Maar R10 000 sommer net vir spend sal ook lekker wees.

  3. Ek gaan probeer onthou om vanaand die link te click dat ek ook kan weet =)

    1. Ek vat daardie R10 000 sonder om my oë te knip. Môre voel ek dalk na sharing and caring…. Ek gee ook graag vir ander, hetsy kos of klere of bakke of oorskiet skoene. Hierdie R10 000 vat ek egter vir myself. Dalk sal ek ‘n rosyntjie aanstuur …

    2. Of my Zimmer-frame ‘n built-in mp3 player het en ‘n cup holder vir my teebeker. Ook is dit belangrik dat daar gratis wi-fi moet wees waar ek ookal mag wees teen daardie tyd

    3. Mmmm, ek is nie erg oor ‘n soetding nie. Hybrid Jellytot Smarties sal werk vir my

    4. Ons het ‘n pers pikante opvou sambreel. Wat Engelkind vir die eerste in 4jaar verlede week
    gebruik het. Vir my egter niie een van die twee nie. Ek is die af een wat huppel in die reën sonder skoene of hoed of sambreel of reënjas. It has been known dat ek dan soms kliphard lag ook sommer.

  4. A old guy of 80 years ? ,,, Robbing the cradle or just being a Cougar ?

    An umbrella. If it rained here I’d probably go outside and dance around,,, when it does rain (not very often) it’s usually 1/10 to 1/4 of an inch, not enough to worry about. South Texas and your Karoo have a lot in common.

  5. 1. Ek sal die 100k vat om anoniem weg te gee…op die comrade manier. D.w.s 30% shipping and handling fee vir my.
    2. Om genoeg geld van my shipping en handling fee oor te hê vir Viagra sodat ek ten minste nie my skoene nat piepie nie
    3. Chocolate brownies met added vitamin green
    4. My oversize affro is ‘n natuurlike sambreel.

  6. 1. Ja nee, ek sal ook die R10 000 vat. En dit sal nogal gaaf wees as dit wel vandag kan gebeur. 😉
    2. Quality of life I guess. My gran is nearing that – and she now has very little. I see that she really suffers with this, since she has always been so independent. That is not the way that I would want to live, if I could chose.
    3. Chocolate (wholenut!) Hoe meer hoe beter.
    4. Ek het drie in die kar, en een by die huis. Die wind is nie so groot storie hier nie. Maar ek het ‘n reenjas ook as ek een nodig het – wat kan ek se^, ek love dit om in die reen te gaan stap!
