Sunday Stealing: Ask

From Sunday Stealing

Ask Ask Ask Meme

(For some reason, that meme title has that song that goes "say say say what you want" - a McCartney song, I think? - running through my head now)

1 - If you were stranded on an island, who do you wish to be with? A. My husband. He can chop wood, snuggle, and stuff.

2 - What do you feel right now? A. Tired, lonely, and frustrated.

3 - What chocolate is your favorite? A. Milk chocolate, I suppose. I like dark chocolate up to about 70% then it tastes bitter to me. My favorite chocolate treat are Cella's dark chocolate covered cherries.

4 - Why did you create a blog account? A. To blog, of course. I was looking for a different sort of creative outlet, at the time. Then I made friends online and offline because of the blog, and now that I am unable to work it is a good way to keep my writing skills up and my mind occupied.

5 - Who is your favorite blogger? A. I don't have one, but all Saturday 9 and Sunday Stealing bloggers, along with local bloggers, are my favorites.

6 - When was the last time you cried? Why? A. About two weeks ago when my physical therapist told me my insurance company had decided I wasn't going to get any better.

7 - Who is your best friend? A. My husband is my best friend, but I have several women in my life whom I love dearly and consider close friends.

8 - What kind of music do you listen to? A. I like 1970s music along with music that is similar to Melissa Etheridge's and Sheryl Crow's (her earlier stuff, not her country stuff). I also like movie theme music (depending on the movie).

9 - Do you have trouble sleeping at night? A. I usually wake at least twice during the night because of pain.

10 - What do you prefer, jeans or shorts? A. Jeans. I seldom wear shorts.

11 - Did you try to change for a person? A. I am a constantly evolving work of art.

12 - Are you in a good or bad mood? A. I'm in a mediocre mood.

13 - Name someone you can’t live without. A. My husband.

14 - Do you have a grudge against anyone? A. Many people disappoint me. I try to forgive them and remember that we are all crawling through the darkness on a long journey, one filled with potholes, glaring lights, and car crashes. I do think, though, that hard as I try, there are a few people whom I will never fully forgive. I don't wish them ill, but I don't particularly want them in my life.
15 - Are you a crybaby? A. Wahhhh! I hope not. My husband says I am not high maintenance, which I take as a compliment.

16 - When people praise you for your looks, what feature do they praise? A. Usually my skin.

17 - What hair color do you prefer? A. Natural. I think the majority of people look better with whatever color their hair is supposed to be. I understand the desire for hiding the gray, but I wear mine as a badge of honor. Look how long I have lived!

18 - If you can change anything about yourself, what is it? A. I'd take things less personally.

19 - Can you live without internet? A. I did before it came along, so yes. Would I prefer to do without it? No.

20 - Have you ever experienced being hysterical? A. Yes.

21 - Did you have an accident last year? A. No.

22 - What are you thinking right now? A. That I should be walking on the treadmill instead of doing this meme.

23 - Have you been hurt so bad that you can’t find words to explain how you feel? A. Every day.

24 - Do you have trust issues? A. Yes.

25 - Who’s the person who first comes to your mind when someone mentions love? A. My husband.

26 - Do you believe in the phrase “If it’s meant to be, it will be,”? A. No.

27 - Do you believe in destiny? A. No.

28 - How do you look right now? A. Tired and worn.

29 - Did you ever feel like you’re not good enough? A. Every day of my life.


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. good answers; particularly 11 and 14

  2. Answer 14 is really good. Grudges are a waste of time. Either forgive or remove people from your life. Holding a grudge just makes you tired, bitter and unhappy!

  3. I don't think it means you're holding a grudge to not want people who have hurt you terribly in your life. You said you've let it go and don't wish them harm...that's just choosing wisely who you associate with, choosing not to put yourself in toxic situations.

    I'm not ready to wear that "badge of honor."

  4. I hear ya on the older Sheryl Crow stuff. I don't know why she went country other than because she is an aging female rocker who wants to stay relevant.

  5. I'm afraid I'm high maintenance but thinking I'm low maintenance.

  6. I wear my grey as a badge of honor too..and I think we both blog for the same reason.

  7. The higher than 70% chocolate is like trying to eat baking chocolate. Blech!
    Loved your thoughtful answers. And, many people come back from this thing we've been through by the simple act of walking, but wear good support shoes even on the treadmill. Best wishes to you CountryDew. You can make it back.
    I love how you hear music in your head,too.

  8. I agree with so many of these answers that I don't even know where to begin.

  9. CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes!!


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