Sunday Stealing: Boat Questions

Sunday Stealing: The Boat Questions
 

1. YOU HAVE 10 BUCKS AND NEED TO BUY SNACKS AT A GAS STATION. WHAT DO YOU GET?

A. A bottle of water, a Milky Way Midnight, and a banana, if they sell them. At gas station prices, I think that is about all one could afford.

2. IF YOU WERE REINCARNATED AS SOME SORT OF SEA DWELLING CREATURE, WHAT WOULD YOU BE?

A. I don't want to be a sea creature. But I suppose I would be a bioluminescent octopus. (The link goes to pictures.)

3. WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE REDHEAD?

A. I don't know. Lucille Ball?

4. WHAT DO YOU ORDER WHEN YOU'RE AT A DINER?

A. A chicken salad sandwich.

5. LAST BOOK YOU READ?

A. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Doug Adams

6. DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE PAIR OF UNDERWEAR?

A. I don't have a favorite pair. They are underwear.

7. DESCRIBE THE LAST TIME YOU WERE INJURED.

A. I had a paper cut earlier in the week. It bled.

8. ROCK CONCERT OR SYMPHONY? LAST SEEN?

A. I don't get out much so either would be fine. My last rock concert would have been Elton John about 15 years ago. My last symphony would have been about the same time, I guess.

9. IF SOMEONE WERE TO BUY YOU A GIFT, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE IT TO BE?

A. Whatever they believe I would like. If they care enough to buy me something, I am not going to orchestrate their purchase.

But I would buy myself more books, even though I don't have room for them.

10. WHAT TYPE OF SHIRT DO YOU BEST IN?

A. A T-shirt.

11. IF YOU COULD USE ONLY ONE FORM OF TRANSPORTATION FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

A. A car, I guess, if we're not counting walking. Otherwise I would like to keep my legs, thank you very much.

12. WHAT IS YOUR DEADLY SIN?

A. Gluttony, I suppose, since I am an emotional eater.

13. MOST RECENT MOVIE YOU'VE WATCHED IN A THEATER? RATE IT.

A. The last movie I saw in a theater was Stars Wars: The Force Awakens. It was OK and I liked that the movie featured a heroine, even if she was short-changed in the advertisements. Last night on HBO I watched Batman v. Superman and that was one weird show. I really wanted to feel something at the end, but I didn't. Wonder Woman made a great appearance, though, and I am looking forward to that movie in 2017. (The link goes to a movie trailer - check it out if you haven't.)

14. IF YOU COULD INVENT ONE THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

A. A better health care system.

15. NAME AN ACTOR/ACTRESS YOU'VE HAD THE HOTS FOR?

A. I am too old and too long married for "the hots" for any actor. I liked Orlando Bloom as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings but don't really care for him in other things (same with Viggo Mortenson, who played Aragorn).

16. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CITY? LAST TIME THERE?

A. I don't have a favorite city.

17. WHAT'S THE FIRST WORD THAT COMES TO MIND RIGHT NOW?

A. Silly. That's how I feel answering these questions at 7:00 a.m. on a Sunday because I forgot to do them yesterday.

18. WHAT TYPE OF PET DO YOU HAVE?

A. I have a herd of cows. Otherwise I do not have pets.

19. WHERE HAVE YOU LIVED THE LONGEST?

A. Where I am now. We have lived in this house for 29 years.

20. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON THAT SPENT $100 ON YOU?

A. Probably myself, although with Christmas coming that could change to my husband.

21. WHAT'S THE LAST PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU BOUGHT?

A. A pull-over short-sleeved sweater that was on sale at J.C. Penny's for $10, regular cost $52.

22. WHAT WAS/IS YOUR FAVORITE JOB?

A. Being a news writer.

23. WHO MAKES YOU LAUGH THE MOST??

A. My husband.

24. WHAT ARE YOU CRAVING?

A. Breakfast.

25. WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

A. I have a list of things to try to do today and I hope I feel well enough to get them done. I also have the Shrek version of Leonard Cohen's song Hallelujah stuck in my head as an earworm.

  1. The octopus is pretty cool. Not sure I'd like to be something so...squishy, though. lol
    A herd of cows probably wins you the prize for most unique pet.
    Excellent score on the sweater! I love a bargain.
    Enjoy your day and I hope you feel well enough to accomplish your goals.

  3. Bioluminescent sea creatures are fascinating!
    I'm slightly jealous abut the herd of cows, but I've never worked or lived on a farm so I have no idea what I'm talking about.
    Agreed with Stacy, that is an excellent bargain on the sweater.
    "A better health care system." Amen to that.

  5. That octopus is gorgeous. And thanks to Katie for sticking an earworm in my ear for the day!

    I would love to meet you some day. I think we have a lot in common.

  7. Oh Lord, another earworm! CountryDew you are SO good at that. lol
    That's the most beautiful creature, that octopus. There are so many luminescent creatures in the sea. We watched a doc on it a few years back.
    I would love to be able to have a herd of cows. There was one in a farmer's front paddock across the street from us when I was a teen. It would be fun to live with the old fashioned small breeds all around the place.

  8. Cool octopi! As for number 13...same here! Only been to one movie this year and that was way back in January. There were many I wanted to see, just did not get to them. Have seen a couple 2016 movies on DVD, though.
