Sunday Stealing: Spreading Wings

From Sunday Stealing

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly Meme

1. Have you ever had a pen pal?

A. I have an e-mail pal in England that I've written to for about 14 years. We started writing to one another shortly after 9/11. Most of the emails go through a private yahoo group, and at last count there was something like 15,000 back-and-forth responses there.

2. What’s your favorite breed of dog?

A. Poodle

3. Can money buy happiness?

A. No, but it can pay for health care.

4. Do you listen to music when you’re down?

A. I get up, and nothin' gets me down.  You got it tough, I've seen the toughest around. And I know, baby, just how you feel. You got to roll with the punches and get to what's real. Might as well jump!

5. What is one thing you spend way too much money on?

A. Books. Video games. Computer stuff. That's actually three things but I never said I was good at math.

6. Can you honestly say you’re okay right now?

A. I'm about the best I have been in over two years. That is not "okay" yet but it is better than it was.

7. What was the last thing you spent money on?

A. Groceries, which included bananas, chicken, bread, and medicine.

8. Is your current hair color mostly your natural hair color?

A. It is ALL my natural hair color. Including the gray, which I describe as "soft white," like a GE light bulb.

9. Who have you texted in the last 24 hours?

A. I don't text.

10. Were you in a good mood last night?

A. I was pretty irritable, actually.

11. Do you have a reason to smile right now?

A. Not particularly, though I always enjoy Sunday Stealing. Yay thieves!

12. How often do you hold back what you want to say?

A. Well, apparently I have a reputation for being blunt, or so I learned this week, so not as often as I thought I did.

13. Do you think that in the end, everything will fall into place?

A. Life events don't have a "place," they happen, it's life. Whether or not they are good or bad is a matter of perspective.

14. Are you currently looking forward to anything?

A. I have new furniture ordered. I am looking forward to receiving it.

15. Do you have any TV shows on DVD?

A. I have all of Xena: Warrior PrincessDr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, Legend of the Seeker, Cagney & LaceyBand of Brothers, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and a few seasons of Hercules, the original Charlie's AngelsSix Feet UnderStar Trek: Voyager, and probably a few more that I am not recalling.

I encourage you to visit other participants in Sunday Stealing posts and leave a comment. Cheers to all us thieves who love memes, however we come by them.


  1. 14 years is a long time!Have a nice week. :)

  2. Goodness, you? Blunt? IDTS... anyway, these are very interesting answers and a fun read. I'm glad you are feeling better even if just a smidge. You deserve to be well, so that you will have vim to go with that, so called vinegar. Thieves are the greatest. Yay Thieves!

  3. You like Poodles best....I knew I loved you!

    I don't see you has blunt, either. Honest, down-to-earth, but that's different than blunt. I think you can be those without hurting feelings, while bluntness cannot.

    Hope life gives you something to smile about. :)

  4. According to the vets at the vet med hospital here, poodles are one of the healthiest dogs you can adopt.

  5. I was glad to note that you are feeling some better. It sounds like you are on a slow track to wellness, but still making progress. I guess as long as you keep improving there is hope that it will continue!


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