AMA, Because I'm In The Mood To Procrastinate!

Laying in bed, don't wanna get up. AMA! Who's around?! Anyone? Bueller? ...Or are you all out enjoying your summer?! Blah!
  1. What time is it?
    Suggested by   @NicoleO
  2. Hey @NicoleO 👋🏼 ... it's currently 9:25am in Perth!
  3. What are your Sunday plans?
    Suggested by   @NicoleO
  4. My plans are to do all those little things on my to-do list that just keep getting put forward! I plan to stay 'in' all day. On the list: boring house chores (like laundry), life stuff (like insurance and finances) and me stuff (like journaling and going for a run or doing some yoga)
  5. If you had to turn into an animal and never turn back to human, which animal would you choose?
    Follow up: would your answer be different if you turned back into a human after 24 hours?
    Suggested by   @supabg
  6. My fave animal is the pelican. So it's probable that I could be a happy little pelican for the rest of my life! My spirit animal (however, and my nickname to some!) is the gecko. I'd like to be a Gecko for 24 hours.
    @supabg - cool question!
  7. How fearful are you of the deadly insects of Australia?! I've never been, but have heard stories... 🙈
    Suggested by   @NicoleO
  8. The only Australian creature (or critter) I fear are snakes. Pretty genuine dislike of snakes. Snakes over here are 9/10 gonna kill you. I don't fear spiders. Oh! And the Tasmanian Devil. Those things are fierce. I wouldn't want to cross paths with one of those. They're angry little fuckers!
  9. Have you gone shopping for any cute winter outfits yet and did you get your leather jacket?!
    Suggested by   @cvlop61
  10. Not since my little shopping splurge at H&M a couple weeks back. Was thinking of going back to procure said jacket, or maybe to Zara. Need to earn more $ first as I have a few life expenses to pay!
  11. What's for brunch?
    Suggested by   @cvlop61
  12. Great question!! I don't know, but I'll need to get up. Maybe I'll do a staged brunch. Cheerios while I think about it. Then perhaps poached eggs on hashbrowns (with avocado and feta, wait, do I have avos? 🤔) ... then yogurt with a spiced caramel I made that I have to use up!
  13. Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  14. Depends on who I'm calling! I have been known to do this, yes. I'm a big fan of getting my thoughts in order! I will often rehearse 'potential' conversations in the car whilst driving (alone!). Always have, suspect I always will. It also helps me preempt possible questions! I like to be prepared!!
    Always with the awesome questions @andersun!
  15. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  16. I'd like to retain a body 20 years junior to my age at the time (so, at 70 I want the body of a 50 yo). As for my mind, I'm happy for that to age because a) I know how to keep it 'healthy' and b) I'd like to die with the wisdom of a 90 yo!
    @andersun : strictly answering your question though... the body of a 30 yo! Fuck! Imagine! The old dudes in the nursing home will be lining up! 😂
  17. On a scale of 1-10, how complex is your interior life?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  18. Supposing you're talking interior life as in the simple 'workings of ones mind': 8.5. I'd say I'm more complex than the average. If we're talking 'relationship with God': 6. I used to pray, and have a daily conversation with the big guy. I don't anymore, but I have a relationship with universal connection and I have a faith in that. Ok, maybe a 7!
    Ok, gonna tackle this without clarification @andersun!
  19. What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  20. Yeah, I have ideas of sensitivity in humour. Though, it's more time and place. As in, there's a time and place to 'joke' about issues that would otherwise be sensitive. I used to be hella sensitive to Arnie's, "it's not a tumor". This joke surfaced at the time my dad was diagnosed, so... It kind of stuck with me. I still cringe at that.
  21. How is the work coming on your empathetic AI-powered robot?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  22. Haha! Thanks for reminding me, I still need to watch Ex Machina!
    @andersun I do love the faith you have in me. Let's categorize this under pipe-dream goal that, realistically, is unlikely to happen! The Jessempathy™, not the watching of Ex Machina, that is!
  23. Waffles or pancakes?
    Suggested by   @BWN_7
  24. I'm yet to have a really good waffle, so by default, pancakes! Though, there's a recipe for challah waffles in @mollyyeh's book that I'm dying to try. I just need to buy a waffle iron first!
  25. It's a warm summer Saturday night in Colorado, we're under a huge open tent next to the St Vrain River listening to this band out of Austin Texas called Wild Child. Without googling... what sort of music do you suppose they play?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  26. By the look of the instruments... I'm going to go with 'folk' of some kind. The ukelele almost makes me think 'island folk'.
  27. Peanut butter and jelly sandwich or whatever the Aussie equivalent is: Vegemite on toast?!?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  28. Well, you know, I'm a huge fan of CRUNCHY peanut butter!!! It depends if I'm in the mood for salty or sweet! I probably eat the same quantity of PB to Vegemite. Have you tried PB + honey on toast?
  29. Interior life, con't. >> so yeah, it's complex! Def up in the high 8s. It's not 'clinical complex'. I'm a deep, broad, liberated thinker. I analyze. I mentally experiment. I try not to fret. I'm a good emotional regulator. But yeah, most would spin out at some of my thoughts. Best analogy I can give is my brain is like Alice's Wonderland!
  30. What was your answer to the classic "what do you want to be when you grow up?" question as a kid?
    Suggested by   @sarahmccoy
  31. See this list!.. I hosted a "what did you want to be when you grow up" party!... Costumes I've Worn, Ranked By Commitment << short answer: an astronaut (until I realised how smart you needed to be, and that my motion sickness would hinder my work performance!)
  32. Is there something that you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Have you done it yet? Or: Why haven’t you done it?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  33. In my early thirties I became a goal setter/achiever. So I tend to always be in the work of my goals/dreams. If there is something I want, I tend to go after it. As for right now, I'm in the work of a dream, that is rather personal of which I'm not ready to talk so candidly about on here ☺️ (just know I'm very much in the trenches of that dream!)
  34. I know!! I've always wanted to have my photo taken with my top off and my hair covering my boobs. A nice shot. Classy. Preferably by a professional! Why I haven't done it? My hair isn't long enough! Ha! *cue John Mayer's 'Gravity'*
    @andersun YOU ASKED!! Apparently there are some personal things I don't mind being candid about!
  35. If you were to make yourself a flag or coat-of-arms to carry for the next ten years: what creatures or symbols or colors would be on it?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  36. Ugh. Next! I find that so ostentatious!! No flags, no coat-of-arms! 😜
  37. Without a flag or a symbol to carry or rally around, how do you keep yourself motivated and engaged in the trenches of dream chasing?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  38. That rampant interior 'life'!! My vision is ever evolving, very fluid. I listen to and trust my inner voice. I'm not an object driven person, I chase a feeling!
    @andersun stop me before I write the lyrics to Mayer's next hit!
  39. Mulder or Scully?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  40. Shit! My memory of The X-Files is so sketchy. Mulder because there is something about David Duchovny in Californication that's so incredibly hot! That's all I can link it to, I'm afraid!
    @andersun ok, all right, i said it! I have a soft spot for bad boys... sheesh!
  41. BTW, of what are we procrastinating?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  42. Haha!! See top of list!
  43. Do you own a long-haired wig?
    😬
    Suggested by   @andersun
  44. The longest hair wig I ow.... 🤔 wait a second!.... haha! You saucy minx!
  45. Laying in bed was four hours ago. When will you get up?
    Surf's up already 🏄 why not you?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  46. I'm very much up and at 'em now! See!
    Just hung the washing on the line... about to do part two of brunch (poached eggs) ... @andersun
  47. What's your *least* favorite John album?
    Suggested by   @veshecco
  48. I've always been able to enjoy all of John's albums. I guess my least liked 'sound' is his country-vibe. I guess some of the songs on Paradise Valley, but not the whole album!
    @veshecco what ya tryin' to start, boy?!?!
  49. How long have you had Missy? She's terribly cute 😍
    Suggested by   @victralala
  50. Who? This little pooch?! Missy is turning 4 in Dec and we rescued her at 11 weeks.
    She says hi 👋🏼 @victralala
  51. This is she at 11 weeks. Look at that belly 😍
