Sunday Questions

I haven't done a meme in a while, so I thought I'd see what was offered at Sunday Stealing. This is today's (for once I am doing it at the appropriate time!).

The Wish List Meme, part one 

1.) What are 3 things on your Wish list and why?  

a. To write a book - because I am a writer
b. To visit the pyramids in Egypt - because they are there
c. To visit Scotland - because my lineage lies there

2.) What do you miss about your childhood? 

I miss having a healthier, skinny body.

3.) What do you do on your spare time on the weekends? 

Read, write, play on the computer, work in the yard, go out to dinner, shop.

4.) What do you appreciate most in your life? 

My husband.

5.) Would you rather be rich or healthy? 

Healthy. Although healthy and rich would be nice.

6.) If you could go back in time would you and why? 

I would if I knew I would come back to my present. I would like to meet the Bronte' sisters. Actually I think I would rather go into the future than the past. The future is such an unknown ...

7.) Favorite game as a child? 


8.) What is your dream career? 

Owning and writing a newspaper. I guess to be cool it should be like the Huffington Post these days. Except I would pay the people who write for me, not take their words for free. That is so not cool.

9.) What do you do in your free time? 

Read, write, play on the computer.

10.) Favorite clothing stores? 

It used to be J C Penny but that was before they went bonkers and changed everything. Now I guess it is Belk.

11.) What TV shows can't you live without? 

None of them. I don't watch that much TV and there are very few shows I make a point of seeing. Right now, Game of Thrones is a favorite, and I am eager to see the next season of The Newsroom when it starts this summer.

12.) 3 things you need in your life are: 

Better health
More money
Lots and lots of hugs

13.) What can't you sleep without? 

My Tri-core neck pillow.

14.) What are you currently a nerd for? 

Um. I am not sure what this means. You mean, like, do I want a smart phone or an iPad or something?  I am an old nerd from way back. (Apparently I am a nerd about this question, because I have come back and edited it four times now and still don't know how to answer it.)

15.) What is your favorite seasoning? 

I hate to confess this, because it isn't really a seasoning, but I love Mrs. Dash original blend. It spices up anything.

16.) What is your favorite wild animal? 

Deer. I think deer are my totem animal.

17.) Name 3 of your favorite childhood shows: 

Land of the Lost
The Brady Bunch
Charlies Angels

18.) If you could live as a character in a movie who would it be? 

Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) from Pretty Woman, after she's stopped doing tricks and been swept off her feet by Edward Lewis (Richard Gere).

19.) Favorite vegetable? 


20.) Favorite Fruit? 


21.) If you had a dragon what would you name it? 


22.) What do you put on hotdogs? 

A bun, a weiner, pickle relish, and catsup. That's it. Sometimes I go wild and use a little mustard.

23.) Do you play online games? 

Not much. I prefer the single player role-playing games, which I understand are not sold anymore (they're all hooked into online subscription things, aren't they?). I haven't bought a video game in at least five years. When I do play online games, it is a puzzle or match-3 (Bejeweled) - also solitary - and I seldom participate in those chats that come with those games.

24.) What's your favorite way to get inspired? 

Read something wonderful.

25.) Do you have a middle name?

Yep. And wouldn't you just like to know?


  1. We spice up most of our meats before grilling them. YUMMO.

    Funny list and your responses sure made me laugh! LOL

  2. Cool to see your familiar face among the Sunday Stealing role! I am intrigued by the idea of Fredericka the Dragon.

  3. I've pretty much given up on the skinny part of healthy. It's just not as fun

  4. I could never get the hang of playing a game and chatting at the same time.

  5. Sis,

    You always have been and always shall be, the ultimate nerd!! Plus, I know your middle name!!!
    HA HA HA!!!!

  6. Land of the Lost! My sisters and I used to watch that (and The Brady Bunch) after school. I also use Mrs. Dash Original Blend for seasoning. As you said, you can use it on just about anything. Also not that thrilled with some of the changes at JCP lately. Guess it's a good thing I haven't needed anything new in a while.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
