Screamed a friend’s FB post this morning.
The question scared me, to be honest. She, of course, is a ‘Super Wife’. Knowing her, I don’t doubt it, for a minute. Knowing myself, I would not even try it. Why would I ask FB to certify me as a really lazy wife more addicted to her blog and books than looking after every single need of her husband?
But seriously, these quizzes, who thinks them up? I am tempted to try them out, just to find out the kind of questions they ask, but dread doing it – I would hate for all my FB friends to get notifications of how I found this ‘wonderful’ quiz/application. So good wife or not, you can see, that I am a very cautious FBer. These days, I log into FB just to play Scrabble, thanks to Nu( Nu, You got me re-addicted to Scrabble!, I am just thankful, it is not Farmville).
So, as I was saying, do you take this quizzes? Are they fun? As someone who steers clear of all these ‘quizzes’ and questions that analyze various aspects of our personality, I find it quite odd that so many of my friends do seem to take part in them. Is it just something to do when we have nothing to do? I don’t think anybody would take these quizzes seriously, do you?
The last couple of days, have been so very boring, stuck at home, thanks to bad weather! I almost got tempted to start playing Farmville again or take one of those inane quizzes to relieve the boredom. If only I could though! In addition to everything else that happens when it snows, like making stepping out impossible, driving dangerous, we also lost our TV and broadband signals! For a while we felt all cut-off – like living in an island – all alone! OK, I exaggerate, but it was disconcerting. Can you imagine how it is? One moment, you are surfing channels trying to see which other part of the country had worse weather than us, and the next thing you see is a blue screen stating that the satelite signal is unavailable! Does that even happen any more?I mean, years ago, when we only had DD, I remember how a storm could change the direction of the antenna – but these days? Apparently it does happen.
Thankfully, we still had signal on our phones and internet working on them – how could we survive otherwise?
I had a post half-written on snow, with pics and all, but with this latest onslaught of heavy snow showers, I have decided to show my protest by not taking any more snow pics, until better weather comes our way. Just to let you know, we have over a foot of snow outside, schools canceled( let me not even go into details of how tough it is to entertain someone who wants to be in school) and all of us are busy sneeezing or coughing(making snowmen/snow balls out of the question). I mean, if we had to have bad weather, why can’t we have it when we are all healthy and fit?
And yes, wading in snow, is not a pleasant experience, playing those quizzes on FB, suddenly sounds so inviting!
