Friday’s Friendly Musings

One of my favourite things to do, apart from reading, is writing, so I love this blog link up at McGuffy’s Reader. In the Friendly Fill-ins we’re given written prompts (the words in purple bold) and then complete them how we wish.
1. I would like to interview so many different people that I had to split this one into two, one who’s already dead and one that’s alive – I love these type of questions.  

Firstly I would have loved to have had the chance to interview Mother Teresa as her life fascinates me and I nearly always include her in my list of people I would invite to my perfect dinner party. The top three questions I would want to ask her are:

  • How did you maintain your faith when faced with so many horrific events during your lifetime?
  • Did you ever experience romantic love?
  • What one moment in your life is the one you are most thankful for?

The second person, who is still alive, would be the Dalai Lama. A man who at the age of two was identified as the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama and entered the monastery at the age of six. The top three questions I’d like to ask his holiness are:

  • After having so much responsibility put on you at such a young age, did you ever feel like rebelling and turning your back on it all?
  • Who do you think has had the worst impact on the world during your lifetime and what would you say to them if you had them alone in a room?  
  • Having visited well over sixty countries, which place (apart from Tibet) has been your favourite and where did you meet the nicest people?                               

2. I would like to be interviewed by Ellen Degeneres. I was debating between Oprah and Ellen as I think they’re both amazing women, but I chose Ellen as she makes me laugh as much as she makes me cry and I think I’d feel more comfortable with her.

3. Halloween night I’m working till 8pm so my beloved will have to deal with any children that come to the door. Last year we only had one child call as we’re not really in an easy position for trick or treaters. When we lived in London we used to ignore the intercom as we lived upstairs and not all trick or treaters in London were of the nice variety.

4. Once Halloween is over, I’ll look forward to all the Christmas decorations taking over the shops and town streets. They always make me smile.

Who would you like to interview if you had the chance? Before you go, pop over to McGuffy’s Reader to see what my fellow bloggers have come up with.

Until next time, be good, stay safe, and have a fun filled weekend.

P.S: Nothing to see here, just the Princess chilling.

  1. I LOVE your answers, and the way you think. Thank you for finding us and joining our group. I have subscribed you you, as well. HUGS!


  2. Thank you for participating, great answers. I love your answer to the first one with all the questions. I would love to know the answers to those questions too. I enjoy Ellen, she is fun plus she has the same name as me 🙂 I hope you have a great weekend!


  3. Ahh…I think I know pretty much what Mother would say to your questions. Mother said that God never gave her more than she could handle. She saw past the horrors to the needs. Her love was the ultimate love. She saw every moment as pure joy. I have read her extensively, converted through her example, and almost became a (Servite) nun. God had other plans, but Blessed Mother is still my Mother. Many nuns feel the same about these questions; I have asked many on my own journey.I agree with you about the Dalai Lama. I am aslo moved by Gandhi, Buddha, and other teachers. Please join us on Mondays for Sparks. I think you would connect there! We would love to have you join us. Hugs!


  4. I remember speaking to an elderly nun when I was a teenager and she was so lovely and answered my questions so honestly. She did say that sometimes when she looked back on her life she sometimes wondered what it would have been like to have children but she didn't regret it.Have a lovely week Annie.
