Sunday Stealing: Chicago Crazy Questions

Sunday Stealing: The Chicago Crazy Questions

1) What was your dream growing up?

A. I had many things I thought about being - an archeologist, a geologist, a writer/reporter, a college professor, a musician. I have always had a curious mind and I have yet to settle on one single thing.

2) What talent do you wish you had?

A. The ability to be proactive, which probably isn't a talent. If it isn't a talent, then some kind of physical ability, like karate or something.

3) If I bought you a drink what would it be?

A. Water or a root beer. If I were really feeling wild and crazy, I might ask for a NeHi grape soda.

4) What was the last book you read?

A. Hold Still, by Sally Mann.

5) Worst habit?

A. It's a tie between eating chocolate and biting my nails.

6) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?

A. Since I have an idea of what you look like, Bud the Sunday Stealing author, and I know you like Star Trek, I would. But I do not offer rides to total strangers.

7) What is your favorite sport?

A. Women's figure skating.

8) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?

A. We'd have a nice conversation and learn a bit about one another while we waited for my husband the firefighter to come to our rescue.

9) Worst thing to ever happen to you?

A. The multiple surgeries I went through while we were trying to have a child.

10) Tell me one weird fact about you.

A. I still like action figures. I really want a Wonder Woman action figure.

11) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?

A. Come on in, Bud. Can I get you a drink? I have water, Diet Dr. Pepper, and unsweetened tea.

12) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?

A. My big fat behind.

13) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?

A. I would be your conscientious crime partner.

14) Ever been arrested?

A. Not exactly.

15) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

A. Pay off a loan.

16) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?

A. Read.

17) Biggest pet peeve?

A. At the moment it is constantly being harangued by the Archmage in my fellowship in a multiplayer city-building game I'm participating in because she doesn't think my sawmills are making enough goods. If she keeps on I am going to leave and go find another fellowship. When she pays my $9.99 for my game she can play it her way. Until then, she needs to shut up and leave me alone.

18) In one word, how would you describe yourself?

A. Perfectionist.

19) Do you believe in/appreciate romance?

A. Sure. Bring me flowers, sing me love songs, talk to me when you come through the door at the end of the day. Hate to leave me. Love me late at night. Talk about forever. (Bonus points if you can name the song I just butchered in that answer.)

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. Was the butchered song " You don't bring me flowers" I would love a NeHi grape! Can't hardly find them anymore. Brings back memories of being a kid! Speaking of childhood... What do you think about the new Wonder Woman movie? Have you seen the previews? I'm not too sure about it, I don't like Hollywood messing with my childhood super heroes too much.

  2. I had to chuckle over your answer to #1. At 52 I joke that I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
    Not exactly?? C'mon...don't leave us hanging!

  3. Gdaisygirl got in there before I did. I finally see where we have differences. I am not and never have been a perfectionist!

    1. Sorry Bev, I'm an early riser! Lol!

  4. By age 29, my dreams of a career were over, though I did try to be the best homemaker there was. Major fail! 🙃
    Ah, the hinder part.. ahem...
    Can that Archmage be killed? There's one, not in our Alliance but another, who is nearly always playing while drunk, PUI? She makes everyone in her guild miserable.

    1. I don't know, I think the only thing I can do is leave the fellowship. But she sure is irritating.


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