Sunday Stealing: Ask, Ask, Ask

From Sunday Stealing

Ask, Ask, Ask

1 - Who was the last person you texted?

A. I last emailed the phone of a friend who had a birthday on Saturday. (That is my version of texting.)

2 - When is your birthday?

A. It is in June. I'm a pesky little Gemini.

3 - Who do you want to be with right now?

A. Nobody except my husband, although if someone wanted to drop by and give me a hug I gladly would accept it.

4 - What sports do you play?

A. None.

5 - Who is the first person in your blogroll?

A. Around Roanoke, by Tanya. It's a local blog and I have met the blogger in person. She ain't from these here parts and it is always interesting to me to see how someone else views the area.

6 - What is your favorite song at the moment?

A. I am Woman, by Helen Reddy (because I am a Nasty Woman.)

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an' pretend
'Cause I've heard it all before
And I've been down there on the floor
No one's ever gonna keep me down again
[Chorus:]
Oh yes I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But
look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything

I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman
You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
'Cause you've deepened the conviction in my soul
[Chorus]
I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin' arms across the land
But I'm still an embryo
With a long long way to go
Until I make my brother understand
Oh yes I am wise
But it's wisdom born of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to I can face anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman
Oh, I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman

7 - If you were stranded on an island, who do you wish to be with?

A. My husband, along with a chest full of books and another chest full of vegetable seeds, and the island should have fresh water and food. Otherwise I don't particularly want to be there.

8 - What do you feel right now?

A. Anxious, fretful, terrified, and a little bit crazy

9 - What chocolate is your favorite?

A. Any chocolate is my favorite. Dark chocolate, however, has started to bother my ulcers so I am eating less of it than I once did.

10 - How many boyfriends/girlfriends did you have?

A. I have no idea. I dated in my teens but I met my husband when I was 19 and we were married when I was 20.

11 - Why did you create a blog account?

A. To blog. Initially, I blogged in 2003 about the Iraq War, which I greatly opposed, under a different pseudonym, and then I used AOL Journals for a while as a creative outlet and for something different from news writing. When the company did away with that, I moved to Blogger. It has become a place for me to think, to meet people (hopefully making more friends than enemies), and to stretch in my writing if I choose. 

12 - Who is your favorite blogger?

A. I like all the Saturday 9 and Sunday Stealing folks, even the ones who don't come visit me back. Or maybe they visit but don't respond, I don't know.

13 - Where do you want to be right now?

A. I'm fine where I am.

14 - What do you want to be in the future?

A. Healthy. Able to work. Less anxious and depressed. Still living in a democracy and not the dictatorship that I fear we're headed for if D.T. wins the election on Tuesday.

15 - When was the last time you cried? Why?

A. Earlier in the week because I was in a lot of pain. Sometimes it is very tiring.

16 - Are you happy?

A. I am not unhappy. But I am terribly anxious.

17 - Who do you miss?

A. I miss my grandmother sometimes. She died in 2007.

18 - If you were given a chance, would you like to have a different life?

A. I would not mind having the opportunity to make a few retroactive changes. For one thing, I would have taken better care of my health, and started things like yoga and acupuncture when I was in my 20s instead of my 40s.

19 - What was the best thing you were given?

A. My wedding ring.

20 - Who was the last person who called you?

A. My mother-in-law.

21 - What is your favorite dish?

A. I don't really have one, but I do not eat much red meat or things with tomato sauce on them.

22 - Who is your best friend?

A. My husband. I have several women friends whom I might call "bestie" but I wouldn't want to single anyone out.

23 - What is your biggest regret?

A. Not being able to have children.

24 - Have you ever avoided your partner?

A. I've been married for 33 years. Of course I have avoided him.

25 - Who do you spend crazy moments with?

A. Myself. Why would I want to impose that on anyone else?

  1. I think we are living in such a very strange democracy right now we might end up really screwed if the Menace makes it to office. He's got enemy lists like Nixon did. And he's unstable, a perfect pawn for an "Iago".

  2. Very thoughtful answers to some of the questions this week. I am with you on regretting not taking better care of my health when I was younger. We always think we have tomorrow to get to it when we're young, don't we? I guess that's why they say that youth is wasted on the young.
