TMI Tuesday – Socially Distant Edition #1

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another round of TMI. As I posted a few days ago. I have been struggling with life and so my TMI participation has been low. But I am back bitches!. 

H posted an interesting video on the source post for TMI Tuesday which is like a lot of the stuff around at the moment so I thought I would share a personal favourite from my own FB feed. 

I truly appreciate the amount of thought that went into this but not as much as I appreciate the pretty boy inside the blanket!!!!

On to the questions.

1. If you are self-isolating, under lockdown orders, or quarantined, what is your main daily activity?

In the Land Down Under we are not on full lockdown at this stage. A lot of people are still going to work, some are working from home and some are unemployed. Schools have moved to online delivery. For me personally I am expected to be at work daily even if my students are not. But this week and next constitute the Easter break for Australian schools. I am avoiding using the word holiday because sitting in front of me as I type is a substantial list of work and study related tasks, the most significant one is a 2750 word essay about Social Justice Teaching in Catholic Schools. Yes I am completing a course that will qualify me to teach religion in a Catholic School. I am on record for saying many times the decision to enroll in and complete this course was stupid. At least I am not paying for it.

So in conclusion I may be at home and able to wear what I want and eat when I want but that my friends is the extent of my “holiday”.

2. Would you rather be alone for the rest of your life or always be surrounded by annoying people?

I have joked many times with Mr Jones about leaving humanity behind and becoming a hermit. So I guess alone is my preferred option.

As long as I can have a cat, and be visited by pretty boys that I can use as sex toys from time to time.


3. Would you rather never use social media sites/apps again or never watch another movie or TV show?

I have a friend who is in what I would consider an extremely toxic relationship. Both parties are ex drug addicts who are currently using social media to bash each other emotionally. When I see the kind of damage being involved with social media does to this kind of person the answer to the above is a no-brainer.

Social media is like any other drug. Fine in moderation but moderation varies from person to person and there are people who it is not fine for… ever.

I am not one of those people, I hope. But I would happily let it go and watch a movie.

4. Would you rather live in a utopia as a normal person or in a dystopia but you are the supreme ruler?

I kind of feel like these two options are the same. I am a bit of a fan of Mad Max so I think I would rather be like the Tina Turner character in Beyond Thunderdome

mad max

5. Are humans better at creation or destruction?

Individual humans are great at creation. eg Da Vinci, Elon Musk, Mozart.

The human race is absolutely hell bent on destroying everything. Witness global warming, nuclear weapons and social media.

The real question is, will the creators that are everywhere in our world be enough to outweigh the destruction of the human race as a whole?

Bonus: Would you rather find your true love or a suitcase with five million dollars inside?

I am gonna go with the suitcase so I can build a mansion for me and my cats with maybe some accommodation for my toy boys.


PS During the writing of this post I have discovered that Netflix has a series actually entitled Toyboys!!!!

I know what I am watching tonight!

This post is part of TMI Tuesday. Always interesting seeing what skeletons come out of people’s closets. Head on over and check it out!.

  1. I love your answer to #5, that is so true. The idealist in me wishes that people make good use of their time here on Earth, but the pessimist in me says we’re all doomed. However, the realist in me tells me that change starts within me. I’m not in control of others but I am 100% in control of myself. A great answer to ponder about!
    To boy toys and the Thunderdome, cheers Gemmi! 🍸
