Twenty Questions…

Hmmm… so my lovely blog-friend Fandango has posted twenty questions to be answered, just for fun – so here goes, entirely off the top of my head! πŸ™‚

Window or aisle?

If I know my travelling companion, window, otherwise aisle every time just incase I get trapped or squashed into a too-small tight space – I’m claustrophobic 😦

White bread or whole wheat?

Whole wheat mostly, but occasionally the lure of soft white crusty bread with lashings of real butter pulls me in… mmmmmm…

Car or pickup?

I live in the UK where people tend to drive cars unless they particularly need a pickup truck for work purposes. But as it happens, living in London I have neither, so rely solely on public transport for now

iPhone or Android?

Android all the way so far

Foreign or domestic?

Is that a real question? What does it mean? Foreign or Domestic what? Technically I have a foreign husband as he’s American by birth, so does that count as a preference for foreign? (My previous long-ago-divorced domestic-based bloke was definitely a dud…)

Hip hop or pop?

Both, and pretty much everything else too – I just like music

Watch TV or read a book?

Both, but never at the same time

Summer or winter?

I was born in the winter, so I guess my wintery preference is kind of imprinted in my December genes. But living in such a temperate climate, neither is usually particularly extreme in my half century (and a bit) of experience

Daytime or nighttime?

Daytime for doing stuff, night time for resting – and in general I’m more of a home bird than a party animal, so that would have made quite a good either/ or question too, wouldn’t it?

Hot or cold?

Lukewarm – um, I honestly don’t know.Β  Coffee hot, cola cold, me somewhere in between. I’m back to struggling with menopausal hot flushes for now, so temperature’s a bit of a red rag to the bull at the moment

New or old?

Actually this is a difficult one – I’m no longer very new myself, so old feels more appropriate. But we live in an old Victorian property, so in that particular scenario new feels like it wins hands down

Fiction or non-fiction?

Each has its place in my life – non-fiction is best for learning, but fiction is great for relaxing

Poetry or prose?

I like both equally, but differently

Democrat or Republican?

British so neither, but my political values align way more with the Democratic party than the Republicans

Windows or Mac?


Mountains or ocean?

Living in the UK I don’t really have to choose – one of the benefits of a smallish island, it’s never too far from either so I can live in between and still have the enjoyment of both if I choose

Whole or skimmed?

Skimmed – it has higher levels of calcium so good for my menopausal bones to help prevent osteoporosis

Coffee or tea?

Here in the UK I prefer tea mostly, but I do love a good cup of strong milky coffee. But when in the US I always drink coffee, because I don’t really like what passes for tea on the other side of the ocean. PS in America I like to drink my coffee with half-and-half, which we don’t get here – it’s yum!

Football or baseball?

Rugby every time

Soda or pop?

Aren’t they just different words for the same thing? πŸ™‚

    I adore Tea, and absolutely HATE the crap stuff sold in bags here in the US. I have a proper tea pot, buy loose tea and use boiling water to infuse it. My hubby accuses me of being a “brit” whenever I pull out the kettle.

      Ha ha ha – I often think it’s no wonder Americans tend not to drink tea – it does taste pretty gross over there! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for playing along. Great answers. As to tea, my mother used to give me tea with honey whenever I was sick, so I associate tea with feeling ill, which is why I never drink it anymore.
