Late Night Wednesday Hodgepodge


1. What’s a pet peeve you have when vacationing?

Loud, obnoxious tourists who are seemingly unaware of the havoc they cause to others around them.

2. Are you a light packer or do you need everything in your closet plus the kitchen sink?

I used to pack every conceivable thing I could possibly need (and then some), but then I started doing a lot of traveling and learned to pack lightly and judiciously. I put thought into what I pack and have not regretted packing lightly.

 

3. What’s the best lesson a child ever taught you?

To be kind to another, especially if he or she is feeling left out. Children tend to want to include others in their play, and we can learn to include others, too.

4. Share one piece of advice you’d give a recent graduate as they attempt to enter the job market?

Don’t get discouraged when looking for a job, and when you find a job, lay low and watch what is going on in your place of employment before you start to open your mouth and make suggestions. You have to earn your place in the pecking order.

5. What’s your favourite lemon something?

Lemon squares.

6. Flat sandal, wedge, heel…your favourite footwear?

Flat sandals.

7. What do you like best about a beach holiday? If you’re not a beach lover (GASP!!) what do you dislike the least?

I love to walk on the beach and I love to listen to the surf and waves.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

My book is almost done and ready for editing. It’s making me nervous. Is it good enough? I’ll soon find out.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

  1. “1. What’s a pet peeve you have when vacationing? Loud, obnoxious tourists who are seemingly unaware of the havoc they cause to others around them.” that is also mine. Plus when tourists rent the villas around us. I’m sure they don’t behave like animals at home, so why on holiday?
