Sunday Stealing: Ask Away

From Sunday Stealing

Ask Away!

1. What is your zodiac sign?

A. I am The Twins (Gemini). Dual personality and all.

2. What is your favorite color?

A. Blue.

3. What’s your lucky number?

A. Eight.

4. What talents do you have?

A. I have a way with words. I play guitar. I can sing on key. I can cook when I want to. I've been told I give good advice.

5. Are you psychic in any way?

A. I knew you were going to ask that question. But yes. For example, the days before my husband actually hurt himself on the farm, I was overcome with abnormal worry about him, so much so that my friends remarked on it. And then he did get hurt, so it was like I knew it was coming.

6. Favorite song?

A. I don't know that I really have a favorite song. It depends on my mood.

7. How many pillows do you sleep with?

A. Um. Four.

8. What position do you usually sleep in?

A. Because of a boo-boo in surgery last year, I have since June 2013 slept on a wedge-shaped foam thing, with pillows under my knees and feet. It's the only position I can rest in that does not cause extreme pain.

9. Have you ever tried archery?

A. No.

10. What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without sleep?

A. About 26 hours.

11. Do you have any scars?

A. Oodles.

12. Have you ever had a secret admirer?

A. If I knew that, it wouldn't be a secret, now would it.

13. Can you do any other accents other than your own?

A. Not very well.

14. Are you a good judge of character?

A. I am mediocre.

15. Can you curl your tongue?

A. Yes.

16. Are you a clean or messy person?

A. I'm a medium clean person.

17. How long does it take for you to get ready?

A. About 30 minutes.

18. Do you have much of an ego?

A. I am the greatest thing to ever walk the planet. Not really. I do have a lot of sarcasm sometimes.

19. Do you talk to yourself?

A. Yes. I answer myself, too.

20. Do you sing to yourself?

A. Yes.

21. Can you name all 50 states of America?

A. I don't know. I can read a map or look it up, it's not something that really matters. I'm certainly not going to sit here and see if I can.

22. Have you ever been scuba diving?

A. No, unless diving in the pond and feeling around for dropped items counts.

23. What makes you nervous?

A. Loud noises, lots of people, guns, overstimulation, and ignorance.

24. Do you correct people when they make mistakes?

A. Not unless they are in danger.

25. Are you ticklish?

A. Sometimes.

26. Have you ever been in a position of authority?

A. Does being Chairman of the Library Board count? Or President of a local historical society? Or the person who sends out notices to book club? If so, then yes. Otherwise, I am simply the mistress of my domain.

27. How many piercings do you have?

A. One in each ear.

28. Can you roll your Rs?

A. I suppose so. I sat here and tried and it seemed like I could, but it is not something I cultivate.

29. How fast can you type?

A. According to this online typing test, I type 82 words per minute. Apparently I've slowed down, as at one time I typed 110 wpm.

30. What are you allergic to?

A. Everything. Perfumes, cigarettes, pollen, mold, certain foods, and stupidity.

31. Do you keep a journal?

A. Yes.

32. Do you like your age?

A. I can't do anything about it, so I may as well.

33. What makes you angry?

A. Class differences, people being mean to other people, hypocrites, anyone who does anything bad to someone I love, unjust actions, law-breaking, evil people, pollution, environmental degradation, war. I'm sure there are other things, but that is a good start.

34. Were your ancestors royalty?

A. Not that I am aware of. Mostly they were Irish potato farmers, gunsmiths, millers, and farmers. Hardy stock, the backbone upon which others build their riches.


  1. I like the answer, "medium clean". Much like myself.

  2. You would be surprised with how many kids can't label the states on a blank map. Sometimes they are reaaaaly off.

  3. Sounds like your ancestors might have been friends with my ancestors. :)

  4. Thanks for the link to the typing test. I got 93, with 3 errors. The error rate was lower than I expected, as I have some numbness problem in one hand which makes typing accuracy terrible. I make so many errors, especially with the letters O and P. Like you, my speed is less than it used to be -- top tested speed was 135 many years ago. But 93 is nothing to complain about!

  5. I used to be a fast typist. I'm going to go check my time with the link you provided.

  6. I'm pretty sure that I am the worst typist this week. I am slow and not too accurate.

  7. heehee. i think i'm allergic to stupidity, too. :P

  8. 21. Can you name all 50 states of America?
    A: I can, actually,thanks to the song "Fifty Nifty United States" learned in 5th grade. Comes in handy for trivia games/questions.

    28. Can you roll your Rs?
    A: No, but I can do a great nasal French R. ;-)

    30. What are you allergic to?
    A: I'm with you on being allergic to stupidity. Grass, pollen and perfume, too.

  9. i laughed at "i knew you would ask that"! i'm going to try and get some pawpaws this week or at least this weekend. so they are ripe now? green is ripe? i'll let you know and give them to you!
