Do. I've occasionally seen some terrible amateur performances (the worst ever was Titanic: The Musical... couldn't wait for it to sink :-o ), but many very good ones and quite a lot that were on the level of professional companies!

Use public transport regularly rather than driving?

Do not. The metro system here is designed mostly to get people to work downtown and back, so there aren't really bus routes to take me where I want to go. So, my trusty, rather rusty van gets me where I want to go.

Eat turnips?

Do not.
They just seem like emergency food for rural peasants in the past.

Share a personal detail on social media?

Do not. For example, as I am not a bird, I don't twitter or tweet, wouldn't know what Instagram is, & though Netflix may produce Narnia, I have no intention of subscribing to it yet.

Listen to the radio?

Do! Mainly Classic FM, in my car. (ABC Classic FM when I'm in Australia.)

Read modern writers' continuations / sequels to classic novels?

Do. :) Some of them are quite interesting takes on the original classic. Or fairy tale in some cases.

Visit archaeological & historical sites when able to do so?

Oh, I do — especially now I live in the UK, where just about everywhere you look there's some kind of fascinating history to discover!! :)

Catch insects, spiders etc. that come into your house and put them outside, rather than killing them?

Do not- they usually come straight back in! X(

Give/throw them away. Prefer the give part, if someone actually wants them.

Forget that you have reusable bags in the car until you get to the checkout?

Do not. I have foldable reusable bags that I carry all the time in my backpack! (I've had a backpack instead of a handbag ever since my university days — holds a lot more and is easier to carry, especially when running for trains or buses!)

Bake your own cakes for special occasions?

Do, occasionally. Although lately something always comes up so that I can't.

Buy soda in glass bottles? (So yummy!)

Do indeed by soft drinks (ie "soda") in glass bottles, in preference to PET bottles, which, though recyclable, are still plastic waste.

Check "use by dates" when doing the groceries?

Yes, especially with things like milk.

Change clothes frequently throughout the day?

Yes, as I have "lounging and relaxing" clothes and serious, get to work/school clothes! :p

Put your feet up on an ottoman while watching TV?

Yes! I usually sit in a glider rocker and I found a glider footstool (which counts as an ottoman, I hope) to go with it at a thrift store for $3!!!

Eat leftover pizza cold?

Do not. It's usually stiff and unpleasant that way. Microwaving can actually make it even better than it was originally!


Sharpen knives/other cutting tools?
