That's Interesting

The What's What Meme

From Sunday Stealing

Q. What is on your bed right now?

A. My favorite set of sheets, a blanket, and a bedspread. I don't use comforters as they will not stay on the bed and I hate chasing after the covers.

Q. What’s your favorite word or phrase?

A. I say "That's interesting" a great deal, either to elicit more commentary or because I have no idea what someone is talking about. It works for both. Some of my favorite words are chagrin, snickerdoodle (which is a type of cookie), and hasenpfeffer (pronounced hossenfeffer). I don't like to eat hasenpfeffer, it's a code word in my household.

Q. What is the best ice cream flavor?

A. I don't think hot fudge Sundae is a flavor but that would be my favorite. I haven't had it since I was 12, so ... 38 years.

Q. Did you wake up smiling this morning?

A. I woke up screaming, actually. I've been having night terrors lately. I think it's caused by a new medication I'm on.

Q. Is there something in your life you used to have, and now miss?

A. Yes. I used to have one and at the moment I do not.

Q. What major company would you like to work for?

A. None of them, really. But if I must pick one, then I would like to be a bestselling author for a major publishing company.

Q. What time do you wake up on a typical morning?

A. My alarm is set for 6 a.m.

Q. What holiday makes you sad?

A. What's to be sad about, it's just another day.

Q. Where does a good night’s sleep rank on your priorities?

A. Very, very high.

Q. One song that makes you cry?

A. Vincent (Starry, Starry Night), by Don McLean. Here's a link to it on youtube.

Q. How old was your mom when she had you?

A. She was 18 years old when I was born and she was 56 years old when she passed away.

Q. When is the last time you went to the beach?

A. October of last year.

Q. What is the most random object around you?

A. Geez, my whole home office is kind of random. I have a used yogurt cup and a spoon in front of me (my Saturday night dinner). Does that work?

Q. What is your favorite sushi?

A. The cooked kind. I don't eat sushi. Actually I don't eat fish; I've developed an allergy to shellfish and have stopped eating all fish as a precaution.

Q. What food do you find disgusting?

A. Sushi!

Q. If you could have any type of dog in the world, what would it be?

A. A teacup poodle, provided there was some way to make a hypoallergenic model.

Q. What was the last meal that you made for yourself?

A. I fixed a really mean pot roast for my husband and me, along with some Basmati jasmine rice and peas.

Q. Is the hard drive on your computer full or getting close to being full?

A. No. It's only about 1/3 full.

Q. Are there any songs that you prefer the acoustic version over the regular version?

A. Not that I can think of it. I like the acoustic versions of most any song if it well done. But I like the usual sounds, too.


  1. I agree about a good night's sleep!

  2. Pfeffernüsse, another funny word, but Christmas cookies that I love.

  3. "Snickerdoodle" is very fun to say, fun to prepare, and fun to eat!

  4. Basmati rice is my favorite. Love it! And I love the song Vincent.. :)

  5. I loved learning all these things about you !
    I thought poodles were indeed one of the dogs that have hypoallergenic fur ...seriously ?
    hmm perhaps you could have one ;)

  6. Night terrors are no fun. I don't see why a hot fudge sundae is not a flavor! Sounds like an excellent flavor to me.

  7. Loved all your words! Also, I would have another teacup poodle in an instant. One DD, who is allergic to most dogs, could hold Jazzie and snuggle him. I call Wolfie, who is small but three times bigger, "Oafie" - sometimes.

  8. You made me realize I say "that's interesting" when my students tell me random stories.

  9. I cry over a lot of songs. That's when I do most of my crying.

  10. I hope your night terrors end soon. That just sounds awful. Wishing you a peaceful week of sleep!

  11. Sorry to hear about the night terrors. "Vincent" is one of my favorite songs. No need for Youtube, I can hear it in my head. :-\

  12. Sleeping well gets harder and harder. I sometimes end up taking a pill and then I have to take a pill to sleep. FYI, poodles are hypoallergenic. My very allergic sister-in-law has one. They used to have a Bichon Frise. A very cute dog and not at all yappy. Any hypoallergenic dog has hair, not fur, and thus it needs to be trimmed. Something you can get a groomer to do, or do at home. They are the inside type of dog, though.


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