Thursday, May 10

In or out

In this post: Booking Through Thursday and Thursday Thirteen


Heidi asks:
Do you consider yourself an extrovert or an introvert?

Perhaps a combination of both. I have been living alone since my big D in 2006 and I don't seem to mind; rarely wish for company. Seventy five percent of my king size bed is littered with books. I occupy the remaining 25% when I sleep. As for socializing I am happy meeting friends for lunch, dinner or high tea in or outside my nook. I love cozy cafes. Church, concerts, lectures, or family get-togethers  - I welcome them as revitalizing shot to my routine which is being alone.
 

Thursday 13: They are also in and out

Breakfast this morning was spent watching CNN's Pierce Morgan talking with people about President Barack Obama's support for gay marriage. I wonder what would these writers have said if they were the ones interviewed.

  1. Low key and intimate is the way to go in my book too but it all depends on a person's comfort zone I suppose. Great post!

  2. You probably need some alone time after the big D. I can only imagine. I don't remember what it is to have a bed to myself, semi jealous here. Here's my BTT. If you have a chance checkout my Giveaway!
    Thanks,

  3. Yes, I've done more recharging of my batteries since "retiring" from my very extroverted career. Even while working, I enjoyed coming home and curling up....

  5. I had no idea some of these writers were not heterosexual. This is a great list. Christopher Marlowe wrote my favorite poem.
