Sunday Stealing: 25

From Sunday Stealing

25 Fun Meme

1. If you were trapped in a room with the person who asked this for 24 hours, what would you do? The answer cannot be romantic or sexual.

A. Play cards. If there were no cards, then I would pull out the notebook I always carry with me and make a deck. We'd also talk and get to know one another. If they had a cell phone and ignored me, I eventually would throw it against the wall (after we called for help). They are the bane of our existence.

2. If you could learn any language instantly, what would it be?

A. Latin. Most of the romance languages have their roots there, so once that one has been mastered the rest come easier.

3. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A. The Lord of the Rings.

4. Favorite song lyric?

A. "I'm leavin' on a jet plane, I don't know when I'll be back again. Oh babe, I hate to go."

A. The Lord of the Rings (all three of them)

A. I play many instruments, but would like to play them all better.

14. What is your favorite item of clothing?

15. Who was your first follower on your blog? Do they still follow you?

  1. Yes I Am is such a great album! I bought it for myself and somehow it ended up in my mom's collection...

  2. At first I thought I liked 12, because man, can I relate! But, 18... I love! And, thank you for following me. Xoxo

  3. That whole gun thing is really something else. Even Bloomberg's millions couldn't make a dent.

  4. Where to start? I totally agree about the cell phones. Nice when we need them, but they have taken over.
    I feel young. I don't remember the Dr. Pepper thing.
    I've seen all three LOTR movies. They were very good, but once was enough. They are so long!
    "Doing Her Best" Aren't we all. Sigh.

    Have a great week!

  5. My son got me involved in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Love it!

  6. That header of yours just calms me right down. There is so much Serenity embodied there. Ah, so many of your answers struck home with me, but I agree about 18; you had me when 18 rolled up.

  7. I always wanted to read/watch Lord of the rings.. Well, you are motivating me to see it..

    And I love your post, hands down. :))

  8. I'm with you on Number 7 -- would love to return to Paris and see even more of the city. Number 13 -- I always wanted to play piano. A friend did teach me a little, but that was eons ago, and it's not like I have room for a piano in my apartment. Number 23 -- I've won many books through contests, and also won a bike when I was in third grade.


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