What reveals more about a woman-her refrigerator or her purse?

Doesn’t the fridge content reflect the purse?


When was the last time you went to the zoo? Where? What’s your favourite zoo animal?

About three years ago, I disapprove of zoos.


What social issue fires you up?

Taking up your right to vote / voter apathy. I had a minor skirmish with someone on Facebook yesterday. One of the organisers of Mister Gay South Africa had said that candidates who had not voted in yesterday’s municipal elections should not be allowed to enter the pageant. Some twit came up with a lame excuse for not voting and I got very cross.


Are you a coupon clipper? If so, are you extreme?



What is one of your favourite souvenirs brought back from your travels?

A white linen ‘cutwork’ tablecloth from Belgium.


Lemon meringue or key lime?

Lemon meringue, I don’t know what key limes are.


What is the most beautiful word you know in any language?



Insert your own random thought here.

When my husband is away I can do whatever I like. I can sleep all afternoon and stay up all night. I can drink a glass of wine at midnight and smoke in the bathroom. I can have chocolate cake for supper. I don’t like it one bit when he’s away.

      A friend rightly reminded me of the upside, tomorrow is Friday 🙂

  2. It does, and as I had really bad insomnia the night before the day was a haze and sleep mostly, so now I feel I need a holiday

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s made worse by my guilt at not having worked yesterday and the mountain of stuff I have to catch up on today #grumpy

  3. souldipper says:

    There’s lots of reasons why I like you, Cin. However, I love you for disliking zoos! Plus, I RESPECT you for disapproving of zoos. Besides questioning what we are doing to animals, what are we teaching people about stewardship?

    Oh…would you like your soapbox back? 😀

    1. theonlycin says:

      *claps hands* Love you too, Amy 🙂

    Great word – Merlot!

      Cheers, Yvette 🙂

    Don’t talk to me about voting, Cin, 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      Proud of my thumb today 🙂

  6. earlybird says:

    Great favourite word!

    One time I couldn’t find my purse. Much later it turned up in the fridge. A definite worry.

  7. Tandy says:

    merlot! I love these American quizzes – have a super day 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      You too, Tandy 🙂

    Interesting ……….. hmmmmm.

      *nods and waves*

  9. i hate it when Phil’s away. I love having the remote control and not feeling guilty about writing all night, but life is simply more homely when he’s creating random havoc under my feet.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I just feel more grounded when he’s home.

  10. and it’s safe to walk around neked and sip champagne …. when hubs is away ……

    1. theonlycin says:

      Only in the summer 😉

  11. sue chef says:

    It’s nice to have some ‘me’ time but not for too long. This time I got a nice neat little black mark, so pleased.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Mine’s a bit spoldgy, but I don’t mind.

  12. Tilly Bud says:

    I like your random thoughts.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Tilly 🙂

  13. colonialist says:

    All entertaining snips!

    There are two angles to zoos. On the one hand the animals are deprived of their natural heritage of freedom. On the other, species are preserved and reintroduced which would otherwise have died out. They also, as happened in my childhood, introduce a wonder and respect in the young for all these wonderful creatures. Not a clearcut issue.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Zoos just make me feel incredibly sad, the animals always appear so … undignified 😦

  14. johnlmalone says:

    my favourite word is Shiraz; I approve of zoos when they are free range like the second and larger one in Adelaide

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’ll have a look on Google, John.

  15. granny1947 says:

    Re your random thoughts…what is wrong with you…that sounds like heaven to me!

    1. theonlycin says:

      LMAO, granny 😉

  16. mairedubhtx says:

    Key limes are little yellowish limes from Florida. Sweeter than big limes. They make good pie.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Never seen one 🙂

  17. Artswebshow says:

    Very good answers indeed Cindy

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Honey 🙂

  18. suzicate says:

    Ah, Merlot…yes,lovely indeed. You have got to try key lime pie! You can buy the juice bottled.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Never seen it in SA, will hunt for it.

  19. Just a note on your first question…. i think that “these” days, when your fridge is full- your purse is bound to be full….er.
    Loved your answers!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks bokkie, I have an interesting fridge 😉

  20. Tes says:

    Very nice answer, Cindy 🙂 and I like Merlot 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      Me too, Tes, a lot 🙂

  21. slpmartin says:

    As always your answers are far better than the questions. 😉

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Charlie, kind words 🙂

  22. gospelwriter says:

    I agree with Charles – your answers are as usual better than the questions. 🙂 Loved the random thought best of all…

    1. theonlycin says:

      Bless you, Ruth, thanks 🙂

  23. Florida is famous for key lime pie. I never found out what a key lime was. I prefer lemon meringue, also. Blessings to you…

    1. theonlycin says:

      A local friend told me they are left to ripen longer than regular limes. Have a super weekend, Carol xxx

  24. Linda says:

    I love these little tidbits. I like lemon meringue also. My grandmother used to make the best! Oh how I do miss them.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’m sure you do, have never made them myself.

  25. nrhatch says:

    Wonderful answers, Cin.

    I’m with you all the way except . . . I prefer Key Lime Pie to Lemon Meringue.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Well, think of me next time you have a slice 🙂

  26. Jamie Dedes says:

    Love your quips on these things.

    You would adore key lime pie, I think.

    You can buy the juice, which is how we get it. Though, I’ve never had this particular brand.

    Here’s a recipe and photo. Ohhhhhh ….

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks, Jamie, I will see if I can find the juice at an online store.
