Hi Ocean!! I like your photo.
I would rather text than talk on the phone.
Would you rather type or write longhand?
Hi Aussie! Thanks! I wanted a new photo that shows off my new haircut and my tan. Lol
I would rather type because it's faster and much neater. But I think writing in longhand is much more personal.
Do you prefer to receive letters written in longhand or typewritten?
I prefer things that I can save easily on my computer, so email would be my preferred way of being written to.
Do you mostly use email for personal or business correspondence?
Yes, I use email for both personal and business correspondence.
Do you find you are using your computer more or less than you have in the past?
About the same.
Do you ever get RSI from typing a lot or not?
No, I haven't. I was quite surprised that I didn't have carpal tunnel syndrome when I was tested a few years ago.
Do you use a wrist support when you type at a keyboard or just rest your wrists on the desk/table?
I used to use a wrist support but my chair is now too high so I lean my right elbow on the arm rest of my chair.
Are you a good height for sitting in chairs? (Most chairs are too high off the ground for me since I'm only 5 foot).
Yes, I have pretty long legs and I'm average height - 5'6" so I'm usually comfortable in most chairs.
Can you find a comfortable position for your seat in the car or do you find it to be uncomfortable due to your height?
(My grandma was very short and she had to put a pillow behind her back when she drove. Then she would look between the steering wheel and the dash board to see out the windshield!! She probably shouldn't have been driving!! Lol)
I find my car seat to be a comfortable height as a passenger but I'm too short to see over the dashboard easily if I were to try to drive.
Do you find driving stressful or not?
It can be. It depends on where I'm driving. Lol
Do you prefer to drive in the city or on country roads?
I don't drive but I prefer to be on country roads because of the nice scenery.
Do you spend much time driving or not?
About 20 minutes one way to work 5 days a week.
Do you prefer to drive or be a passenger?
I prefer to be a passenger.
Do you play music in your car while you're driving or not?
Not only do I play music, I sing too!! Lol Not well, but I try. Lol
Do you sing with the music in your car or just listen?
I love to sing along with music in the car, especially with The Carpenters.
Do you sing in the car when your family is with you or not?
I sing in the car with my daughters if it's Brooks & Dunn. We've done this since they were little.
Have you ever sang in front of an audience or on a stage?
Yes, I've sung in a choir and by myself but I have a very soft voice so I need a microphone.
Have you ever sung in a choir?
Yes, I sang in the church choir, though not very well. Lol
Have you ever played an instrument either by yourself or in a band or not?
(I played in marching band, concert band, pep band, clarinet choir, and solo competition in high school.)
Hi Ocean again!!
I played recorder in a group in primary school but I've never learned an instrument properly.
Have you ever had singing lessons or not?
Hi you two!
I was in a choir and had lessons that way. Does that count?
I was also in an accordion band when I was 15
Do you like classical or modern music?
Hi GmaFoley! Sure your choir lessons count.
I like music from the 1960s to the 1980s best, plus some classical and modern music.
Do you still play CDs or do you use more modern technologies for playing music?
Hi you two!
I still love my CDs and play them often!
Do you still have music on vinyl, 8-track, cassette and/or CD and which do you prefer?
Hi Becky again!!
I never had vinyl, I still have my CDs and I haven't finished sorting out my audio tapes yet. I like my CD alarm clock that wakes me up with songs of my own choice. In the car, we play songs on a memory stick.
Do you listen to music every day or not?
I listen to music every day.
Do you prefer to listen to music with the volume low or turned up?
I prefer the volume low on music so long as I can still hear the words.
Do you prefer gentle or energetic music?
Both - gentle for sleep and energetic while working.
Do you like watching wildlife on the ground or birds?
I like watching cute animals like bunnies, koalas and cats best but birds can be nice at times too.
Do you like to go to the zoo and animal parks or not?
Yes, I love going to the zoo with my grandsons! We just took them to an Amish farm with a drive-thru petting zoo! They LOVED it!!
Do you like going to drive thru Christmas displays or do you just prefer driving around looking at Christmas lights?
Hi Ocean, a petting zoo sounds great!!
I've never heard of a drive thru Christmas display but it sounds interesting.
Are you feeling in the Christmas spirit yet or not?
I'm sorry you've never seen a drive-thru Christmas display. They can be quite beautiful. We enjoy going to them as a family!
I'm trying. Though it's hard with COVID looming over us.
Are you cooking Thanksgiving dinner or attending a Thanksgiving dinner elsewhere?
