Navel Gazing in Books Tag

saw this over at Chuckles Book Cave. The rules are incredibly simple: answer the questions with books read from 2020. Now we’ll have to see if simple is “easy” or not ๐Ÿ˜‰

Describe Yourself

Ageing. And some mornings I feel every day of it!

How Do You Feel?

The Soldier. Sometimes the Culture War seems more brutal than an actual war ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Describe Where You Currently Live

Castle in the Air. While not exactly a castle, our third story condo is high enough when we have to carry the groceries up.

If You Could Go Anywhere, Where Would It Be?

The Tempest. I wouldn’t mind living on a deserted island right now with my every need catered to by invisible servants.

Favorite Form of Transportation

I would love to be able to fly around on a broomstick like Margarita in The Master & Margarita. That’ll beat an electric car hollow for gas mileage!

Your Best Friend Is …..

…..Above the Law and yet Mrs B STILL won’t rob a bank with me. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Maybe a Couples Therapy book would help?

You and Your Friends Are …..

NPC’s. Might as well be with various governing agencies acting like fascists and trying to control our every thought and deed!

What’s the Weather Like?

New Spring. Ha, that’s a lie! More like in the heart of winter right now!

You Fear …..

Mind Games. Seriously. I can handle bad physical things but someone messes with my mind, I’m liable to shoot them just to put an end to their douchebaggery.

What Is the Best Advice You Have To Give?

Invest in ammunition; because the world is a Target Rich Environment (Vol 2) full of idiots.

Thought For the Day?

Live Life on Full Assault Mode because only newbs play on Pansy Level. Ooh rah!

My Soul’s Present Condition?

No where near Hell’s Gate! I might not be a Saint (Tommy, NYPD) but I’m not a Hell Spawn, that’s for sure!

Well, that was MUCH easier than I expected. Feel free to use this at your discretion.

                    1. Exactly! A rich man wouldn’t be able to appreciate the simple pleasure of sitting on his couch, knowing he’d taken the day off because of the weather and just basking in doing nothing.

                    2. There’ll be lots of historians trying to put it together. The WordPress Four – Conversations in the Clouds by Marvin Trotter, The WordPress Four – Genius or Lunacy by Ermintrude de Whitt. That kind of thing.

                    3. Well I’ll do the book covers if you make the titles, photographer and wordsmith should be able to get something together. Perhaps Alex and Ol’10 could do some videos being filmy types.

                    4. Hmmmm. I’ll have to see if that’s in my budget. Guns, ammo, survival food and walking sticks cost a lot these days.

                      Of course, cruise ships are pretty cheap these days, what with covid and all. Maybe we could hire one of those?

                    5. Excellent, we have a quorum.

                      I realize it is late, but I propose that Ol’10 host the bills for all the donuts I ate while awaiting this monumental moment in History. Not everyday that the WP4 comes into being after all.

                    6. I think Ol’10 has retired for the night, that does happen to old people so we must be accommodating to his unavoidable weakness. He’ll still be an indispensable member of the W4 with his purchasing of donut superpower. I’ll get him a cape.

  1. Now, that’s a funny little tag, and we’re looking for sth suitable for a double birthday post later this month… I choose to feel nominated by you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I did not comment on that back when you reviewed the book, but this might be the best M&M cover I’ve seen…

  2. Yes, this was a good one. You’ve got me curious to see which books might work for me. Could this be the first tag post to grace the Teahouse? If it all goes “pear-shaped” (a nice British saying for you) I will hunt you down like the NPC you are!

    1. It would be cool if you did a tag ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Never understood the whole pear-shaped thing. I understand the idea of things turning out bad, but why is a pear a bad shape? I guess it’s like nicknames * shrugs *

      Just remember who has all the guns if you do decide to start hunting, hahahahahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. This is from wiki, so I’m not sure how reliable it is: “The origin for this use of the term is in dispute. The OED cites its origin as within the Royal Air Force as a cleaned-up alternative version of its phrase “tits up” meaning completely broken or dead.”

        You might have all the guns, but be warned I am a 9th-Dan in the use of chopsticks. And I can turn myself invisible, thanks to ninja magic. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

        1. Interesting. I love etymology of phrases and such. It is just so cool to see how things twist and change to take their current form.

          Well, I don’t know if I have any wards against invisible chopsticks, so I’ll keep to the straight and narrow ๐Ÿ™‚
