Sunday Stealing: Get It All Down

From Sunday Stealing

Get It All Down Meme

1. Are you a good dancer?

A. I dance like Elaine on Seinfield. So, no.

2. Are you a good singer?

A. I can carry a tune.

3. Are you a good cook?

A. I can cook well enough to keep us fed and fat. I am not a cook in a healthy sense of the word, nor in a Julia Child sense of the word.

4. Are you a good artist?

A. If writing, music, and photography are included in the arts, then I am a good artist. If you are speaking only of drawing, then I am not.

5. Are you a good listener?

A. Having been a newspaper reporter for 30 years, learning to listen has been a cultivated skill.  Sometimes it is the nuances that lead to the next question, not the words spoken.

6. What's your favorite clean word?

A.  Um. You mean like Ajax or Tide? Or just a favorite word? I hate it when I don't understand the question.

7. What's your favorite swear word?

A. The F-word seems to come out from between my lips with great ease, so I will go with that one.

8. What's your least favorite word?

A. I don't know that I have one.

9. What was the last film you saw?

A. True Lies. It was the only thing on Friday night that seemed to be worth watching.

10. What football team do you support?

A. I root for the University of Virginia for college sports. Mostly because everyone else around here roots for Virginia Tech.

11. Have you ever been bobbing for apples?

A. Not since I was about nine years old.

12. What's your most expensive piece of clothing?

A. My sneakers. Those things cost $150 every six months, and I have to have them because of my problems with my feet.

13. What's the last thing you took a picture of?

A. A doe and her fawn.

14. What's the last thing you drew a picture of?

A. I have no idea. I don't draw much.

15. Have you ever bought anything from eBay?

A. Yes, some parts for the recliner chairs on the sofa.

16. Have you ever invented a fairly unique meal or drink?

A. No, I have not. Although I will report that I never make meatloaf the same way twice.

17. Do you have any secret family recipes?

A. My grandmother's recipe for chocolate lush is considered the family secret. It's a kind of cake and pudding concoction that involves a lot of coco. Best with Cool Whip dressing on top and served warm.

Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there, including my own.


  1. It must be the part of loving/working with words, but I had the same first thought as you about "clean" words. And thank you, I now have an image of you dancing like Elaine bopping around in my head. lol Have a great day!

  2. Shoe investments like that are totally worth it. Cost per wear makes it worth it too. I was thinking about Elaine too

  3. Grandma's recipe has left me drooling..........

  4. I agree with Helena's comment....also left me curious.

  5. Happy to read your post question and answers. Happy Father's Day!

  6. You are, absolutely, an artist! Ooooo, Chocolate Lush. yum!

  7. I wanna eat that Chocolate recipe!!

  8. I can sing, I can cook, I like photogrphy and various crafts so guess you could say I'm artistic, and am generally a good listener. I tried taking pics of fireworks last night, but also got a great photo of the Capitol last night at dusk.


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