Sunday Stealing: Shannon's Moment's, Part Deux

Sunday Stealing: Shannon's Moments Meme, Part Two

23. Have you ever gone to the “dark side”?

A. My husband would probably say he has been the recipient of my dark side. But I've never killed anyone or been arrested, or tried to build a Death Star.

24. What shirt are you wearing right now?

A. I'm in my sleeping gown.

25. What’s important about a bed to you? Like type of sheets, size or whatever.

A. That it is comfortable and doesn't make my back hurt. I also like a bedspread instead of a comforter, and I like the room cold enough to need to be covered with a blanket and the bedspread.

26. Can you sing?

A. Yes. Not as well as I once could, but I can sing.

27. What is something about you that would surprise us?

A. I once put my fist through a door.

28. Have you been to a pirate, Renaissance Fair, or other costumed event? If not, would you for the right event or say cause?

A. I would love to go to a Renaissance Fair, but every time they have one within driving distance, I seem to be sick, or it rains.

29. What songs do you sing in the shower?

A. Anything that comes to mind.

30. Favorite girl's name?

A. Susan.

31. Favorite boy's name?

A. James.

32. What’s in your pocket or purse right now?

A. Nothing in my pocket. My purse has the usual: change, ink pens, my asthma inhaler.

33. Last thing that made you laugh?

A. I told my husband that I didn't pour the oil from the oil lamp down the drain into the septic tank because I was afraid if one of us farted, it would blow the house up.

34. Best toy as a child?

A. Books.

35. Worst injury you have ever had?

A. I will have to go for bad recoveries from surgeries, given that it has left me disabled.

36. Where would you love to live?

A. I am happy where I am. I have lovely mountains and it's quiet. Aside from having to cut the frickin grass, what's not to love?

37. What type of TV do you have? Would you’d like an upgrade?

A. We have a flat screen that is about 12 years old and yes, I would like a new one.

38. There is no Number 38.

39. How many dogs do you have?

A. None. I used to have one but she died after 17 years, and I never had the heart to get another.
40. Do most folks trust you?

A. I used to be a reporter. Some people told me everything. Some people told me nothing. I have kept - and keep - many secrets. While some reporters never kept things "off the record," I did, if asked and I couldn't see the harm in it. The public doesn't need to know everything about a person.
41. What book are you reading?

A. Island of the Blue Dolphins, by Scott O'Dell. I am on a "revisit my childhood favorites" kick at the moment. I want to study the stories and see how they hold up.
42. What’s your favorite classic TV show?

A. Cagney & Lacey. Is that a classic now? Or do you mean further back, like Bewitched?
43. What’s your favorite sports team?

A. I don't follow sports, but I root for the University of Virginia when someone asks.
44. Favorite month and why?

A. June. It's my birthday, and my husband's birthday, and it's not usually too hot.

  1. I remember being taught that "off the record" was sacred. It doesn't seem that anything falls into the sacred category with most of the media these days.

    Island of the Blue Dolphins was a wonderful book.

    Have a great week!

    1. The public has a perception that if they say "off the record" then it is supposed to be, but technically the reporter has to agree to that, too. Many reporters do not agree to "off the record" ever but never mention that to the person they're talking to. I usually told someone if they said that, I had to agree to it as well, or it wasn't off the record, prior to an interview. If they asked for "off the record" and I didn't agree, we would have a discussion as to why. Sometimes, esp. in government, they would ask for "off the record" and I would agree provided I couldn't confirm it with someone else. If I could find the information from a second source, then it was fair game. So I had my rules and most people seemed to think them fair. As far as I know, I never broke them.

  2. I see you and I had the same favorite "toy"!

  3. Your bed answer is awesome--I love bedspreads, too, and also like needing a blanket. I was thinking of getting a weighted blanket, even.

    1. oops! egregious mistake!
      Go on. Get a little companion dog. Wolfie has saved my sanity twice now. Give your new dog the good life that you gave your wonderful angel doggie.

      Love that you've kept those promises, off the record, and that shows you're very trustworthy.
      Here's to improving movement and health through time and therapy! You deserve nothing less!

  5. What did you build the Death Star out of?

    I appreciate the fact you keep secrets...there are not many people left in the world that would.

  6. My birthday is in June, too, on the 6th :) Being a reporter sounds like it must have been very interesting and LOL about the oil lamp bit!

  7. I forgot to add that Island of the Blue Dolphins is one of my favorite books.

    1. I watched the best movie the other day about a mountain in Virginia called, I think, WISH YOU WELL, with ellen burnstyn in it. about a little girl who was a writer.


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