  2. I shall take no offence that you didn’t include me in those you hoped would reply. Don’t expect too much of Monk. Everything is just grand. Not least the fires. She will tell you that everywhere she has lived was just fine, life is just fine. Fires are fine. You just “live” with them. Even if dead. If being nasty constitutes a pimple a day I have just squeezed today’s.

    I have answers – as one does – to all of Shackman’s questions – though, truth be told, am more interested in what other people have to say.

    Piquing my interest: Why FOUR? I have lived in dozens of places before I was twenty. How to choose?

    Names? Mama to my son, Ursula to everyone else. What they call me in the privacy of their own earshot I am not privy too.

    What I watch? Not a lot. Courtesy of the Angel who sits me down when he thinks it’s for my good I am currently in the grip of the last few remaining episodes of the last season of “Justified”. The Angel and I have an ongoing feud since MY interest is solid with Boyd. His is Raylan who, largely justified, mainly functions on one cylinder. Can’t stand the women in that program. Shackman will let me know. Ava does my head in – not least on account of a drawl so wide, so broad it’s a miracle her mouth doesn’t crack wide open.

    Make mine a Sauvignon Blanc. Cheers, Ramana, Cheers, Shackman,

  3. I wont answer these here because I might do it as a blog, I love a good meme.
    I imagined you as the kind of person who might watch the TV news each day but apparently I got that wrong and you are not missing anything, it’s all bad news or inconsequential nonsense.

    1. I look forward to reading your blog post when you write it. I depend on five newspapers a day, three for different opinion perceptives and two for business/economics information and all five for their crossword puzzles. I also catch quite a few news items from the internet.

    Four things i love to watch on tv: Don’t watch TV (except for late night comedians sometimes), but I stream movies and TV series using Netflix. At the moment I’m watching a Spanish series called Velvet. It’s not the greatest, but has some engaging characters and I love the fact I recognize some of the words from my high school Spanish

    Four places I have visited: a lot more than four; I traveled around Europe when I was in Stanford in Germany and when Andy and I lived in Orsay, France for thirteen months right after we married. We took two months coming back from Orsay — via Jordan, Egypt, East Africa, India, Thailand, New Zealand, and Australia. Traveling was a big thing on our bucket list and we crossed it off early.
