Sunday Stealing: Raquet Questions

Sunday Stealing

01  What is the worst nickname that anyone has ever called you?

A. I was one of those incredibly nerdy kids, the one who received 110 on a test because the other kids could never get a curve grade because of me unless the teacher gave me extra points, so some of the kids called me Computer Head. At the time I did not take it as a compliment.

02  Have you got a favorite flower?

A. I am partial to irises and roses.

03  Do you add a sauce, ketchup or other artificial flavorings to your food?

A. I use ketchup on French fries. Occasionally I might go wild and use a little BBQ sauce.

04  Describe yourself using only words that begin with the letter 'T'.

A. Thoughtful, Thinking, Truthful, Turbulent, Tragic, Trembling, and according to my husband, "tolerant but temperamental."

05  What is/was your lover's pet name for you?

A. He calls me baby, baby all night long.

06  What is your least favorite color?

A. Orange.

07  Who did you vote for in the last election, and did they win?

A. I voted for Hillary Clinton, and no, she did not win.

08  What is/was your grandfathers’ names?

A. Claude and Joe.

09  What is the best present you ever received?

A. My engagement ring.

10  What is 17 1/2% of 97 + 42 x (6 / 2) – 137 ? [Editor's note: Holy shit!]

A. Geez. I haven't done a math problem like this since 12th grade. I came up with 49. Does anyone know if that is correct? *edited: apparently not!* [Tina, if you are reading this, what say you?] [Tina is my former high school algebra/trig teacher, who reads my blog. I hope she reads this!]
*edited* Tina says:
17 1/5% of 97 + 42x(6/2) - 137
Must use the order of operations.
PEMDAS - really only using MDAS part
Multiply, Divide, Add, Subtract in that order!.
so... 171/2% of 97 is 0.175 x 97 = 16.975
42 x (6/2) = 42 x 3 = 126
16.975 + 126 - 137 = 5.975
 Tisk children!!

11  What would be the best possible way you could die?

A. Just go to sleep and never wake up.

12  Given the choice of absolutely anything, what would be your dream job?

A. With no restrictions whatsoever? I would be at travel writer.

13  What position do you sleep in at night?

A. I sleep on my back now. I cannot sleep in any other position due to the weird issue with my abdominal muscles.

14  What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?

A. So many to choose from. How about the time I got into a fist fight in the parking lot at high school with another girl?

15  Who is your favorite fictional character?

A. Eowyn from Lord of the Rings. She is no man. I am also a fan of Xena: Warrior Princess, Supergirl, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

16  What food do you hate most in the world?

A. Coconut.

17  When was the last time you were ill?

A. I have ongoing health issues, but the last time I was sick with a cold or virus was about six months ago.

18  If you were transformed into a wild creature, what would it be?

A. A doe.

19  What was your favorite toy as a child, and whatever happened to it?

A. Blue, a stuffed dog. A friend sewed it back together - it was very worn - and when my nephew was young, I gave it to him. I don't know what happened to it after that.

20  What's the most amazing thing you've ever seen?

A. Birth. It is amazing to watch cows give birth, and last summer I was fortunate to see a doe give birth to twins in my front yard.


  1. Haha, #10! I went straight to Google on that one.

  2. Orange is my favorite color!
    I agree on being a travel writer. I love reading travel journals (about the only way I'm going to get to those places) and think it would be amazing to get paid to go all over the world and tell people about it.

  3. I like does but, I'd hate to be one in your neck of the woods. Oh, and she won..only it was the freaking popular vote by 2.8 mill....

  4. #10: After converting the 17 and a half to 17.5, then the 6/2 fraction to 3 then do the rest of the math. Easy. Step by step of your teacher is spot on!
    Yes, she won. That makes me sigh with happiness, that incredible number.

  5. I should have thought of "tolerant" and "temperamental." And if I were your age again, I would LOVE to be s travel writer.

  6. Great answers but how lucky to have witnessed #20 on your front lawn. Wow. Awesome.

  7. I am with you on #11. The best way to go.

  8. Someone else got the same anwer to the math question, I guess there are some math nerds among us!

  10. Sis,
    Blue is still in your nephews possession.He keeps him right beside his blue blanket!!

  11. Did you win the fight in the parking lot? Should we refer to you as "Warrior Princess"
    Just kidding... # 20 is definitely a once is a lifetime event to see.

  12. Yeah, I'd be skipping the convoluted math problem.
