Ask Away

My friend and fellow blogger Elianah-Sharon had this feature on her blog, and I am stealing the idea. (Hope you don’t mind, sweetie).

What do you want to ask me? What do you want to know about me? Is there something you want to say to me?

  1. When did you move to Canada and how much of a culture shock was it for you from the UK?

    • I moved to Canada in May of 1994.

      I remember my then-husband showing me around the grocery store and explaining the various different hechsherim (kosher certificates) on so many products. I was in awe that all these food items were kosher. I was a total kid in a candy store.

      the biggest shock to me was the winter. I had seen snow before, many times, but the bone chilling temperatures and the months-long whiteness took a lot of adjusting. i had to learn how to dress for winter. and not to wait at bus stops – to call the number and find out what time the bus would be there, so i could quickly leave the house to catch it without catching my death of cold.

      The people here, especially in Quebec are so different. French is the first language, and some francophones, esp in stores, refuse to speak English. I do speak French but that took a lot of getting used to.

      I also had to learn to drive on the wrong side of the car and the road. Every time I wanted to change gear, initially, I would roll down the window instead! 😉

  2. Who is your favorite person in the whole wide world (over 14 years old)?

  3. Your blog very interesting to, because it gives me a perspective on life by a woman who is very much into looks, appearance, etc.

    Up to now, I tended to have a negative judgement about women who care a lot about how they look.

    On your blog, I can see that life has not always been easy for you, that you have a lot of responsibility to carry, and that there is a lot more to it than meets the eye.

    Perhaps it will help me to be less prejudiced about women like you. Perhaps it will help me to wait, look and try to find an opening before I get miffed by their glances that tell me “you are someone I do not even want to see”.

  4. “really I am very insecure about some things”

    That’s the most interesting and helpful par of it:

    I think in many cases, what I interpret as arrogant stares of those beautiful women is nothing but insecurity, so I could counter it by meeting them actively with a kind face.

    Because what used to happen until now is that what I perceived as an arrogant glance set off a kind of vicious circle, where I would find the person snobby or unkind, which in turn would trigger a behaviour in me that they would find negative or aggressive, etc…

    However, it will take a lot of time to put this into practice…

    • i think we are all guilty of behaving this way, especially when meeting new people. being aware of our own thought processes is a great place to start.

  5. I am quite honored 🙂 Its a great idea huh?
