Right ! so March is question and answer month -- and yesterday I did get a couple of questions to answer..... and one opinion on the question I asked about consent violation........
Roz said...Questions: What is your favourite movie?
Favourite movie.... well you might all be disappointed in me -- no arty farty movie for me -- no philosophical movie for me -- no thought provoking movie for me..... nope there are 2 movies PLUS the sequels that I love ... .the first is Lethal Weapon -- I LOVE Danny Glover and Mel Gibson. The second is Die Hard..... the first one I watched (and I have no idea what number it was in the series) was the Christmas one that took place in the Nakatomi Plaza -- saw it and was hooked !!
Favourite place you have visited?
That would be Albuquerque New Mexico. I took myself there to visit a friend the Christmas that I turned 50. My whole world had been turned upside down and I was starting all over again.... and was desperately looking for some answers and peace. Albuquerque will always stand out in my mind as the most 'zen' place I have ever visited.... especially the morning I took my coffee out on the balcony and watched the hot air balloon festival.
lindy thomas said...What is one thing you pack when travelling?
I would say it has to be my camera and all the lens / accessories. I rarely travel -- even just a day trip - without it. and because I know you'd just LOVE to see some of my photos here ya go...................
If you could live anywhere in the world where would you choose?
that's easy - Japan. I have always had a fascination with all things oriental -- and definitely felt a strong cosmic pull to Japan. Years and years ago -- when Hong Kong was still British -- my husband went there to work for a number of weeks. I was SO very jealous -- I was unable to accompany him....... but he did take lots of pictures for me and shared lots of stories. Visiting Japan is definitely on my 'bucket list'
And with reference to my question about 'consent violations' Roz offered....
Everone seems to be getting on the consent bandwagon, IMHO it's in danger of getting out of hand. I'm not on Fetlife so wasn't aware of the chatter there.
my mind literally hurts from listening to all the talk and trying to sort out what the hell is going on......... I believe it's a whole lot more than women feeling empowered to come forward.......... but I am still working on it....... trust me there will be a blog entry coming.......... (once I strengthen my armor cause I know there's gonna be a whole lot of blow back -- and accusations of 'victim shaming')
Just so you know Sir Steve took me to hospital on Saturday. They transferred me by ambulance to a bigger hospital in Ottawa. I cannot breat...
Actually anything I write from now on may be a trigger just so you know. I am still in hospital and the diagnosis was shocking... Stage 4 l...
