Sunday Stealing: Getting to Know Your Friends

 Sunday Stealing: The Getting to Know Your Friends Questions

1. What is your occupation right now? How long have you been there?

A. I am a freelance writer. I have been doing it since 1993. I am not currently actively working due to a chronic pain issue.

2. Favorite rock band. Ever.

A. The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac. It's a tie.

3. What are you listening to right now?

A. Sheryl Crow.

4. Last person you spoke to on the phone. What was it about?

A. My friend T. and we talked about the politics of the day, family issues, and knitting.

5. How old are you today? Or make up a question. This one bites.

A. I am old enough to know better and young enough to try it anyway.

6. What is your favorite sport to watch on TV?

A. Ice skating.

7. What is your favorite drink?

A. Root beer.

8. Have you ever dyed your hair?

A. I highlighted it when I was younger but then I started having allergic reactions to whatever the hair dresser was using. It has been natural for a 20 years. Natural is now brown and white.

9. Favorite food?

A. Chocolate. That's not actually a food, but there you go.

10. What is the last movie you watched?

A. Whisky, Tango, Foxtrot with Tina Fey. It was not funny, as my husband expected. It was about a journalist in Afghanistan. The movie showed that Tina Fey can do more than crack jokes. She can also act. However, I was a little aghast to realize that Fey was snogging on Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit trilogy) when I discovered he was in the film.

11. Favorite day of the year?

A. My birthday, which is coming up in June. Actually I like the whole month of June. When I was a child it was the end of the school year, the weather was decent, and I spent time with my grandmother.

12. How do you vent anger?

A. I put it through a hose and send it outside.

13. What was your favorite toy as a child?

A. I liked action figures. My first one was a Batgirl doll (from the cheezy TV show Batman with Adam West). I was never much of a baby doll girl.

14. Living arrangements? (Of course your pets count. Geez!)

A. I am in a house with my husband. The cows are outside. We don't live with them. They have a barn.

15. What was the last thing that you cried about?

A. I secretly shed a couple of tears when my nephew graduated from college last weekend. I told my husband the wind was making my eyes water.

16. Who is the friend you have had the longest?

A. My husband followed by my friend Leslie, whom I have known since 1984.

17. What did you do last night?

A. We had soup for dinner (it was raining and cold Friday night; I'm writing this on Saturday.). I knitted on a scarf while we watched Jeopardy! and Undercover Boss. Then we watched part of the Mark Twain honors on PBS (they were honoring Bill Murray) and then we went to bed. Exciting, eh?

18. What are you most afraid of?

A. Living under an overpass and eating cat food from the garbage, in my personal realm. At the moment I fear for the sanity of the world, overall.

19. In how many areas of your country have you lived? What's your favorite?

A. I have only lived within a 30-mile radius of where I am now. Where I am is my favorite.

20. What is your favorite flower? (Ugh. Quite the note to go out on. But hell, we steal the questions. I guess you get what you pay for.)

A. Iris.


  1. What? Chocolate is not a food? I'm crushed!

    1. I think it depends on the person.

  2. Chocolate has to be a food. I'm a Princess (of the pea variety) and say it must be so.
    The Iris is a beautiful flower.
    I like how you vent. Think it's time to steal that from your playbook. Happy SS day!

    1. Well, since you say so, Zippi, it must be that chocolate is a food! Yay!

  3. We watched WTF expecting it to be funny, as well. It's how it was presented when it came out. It was really interesting, though...especially to this girl who once wanted to be that kind of reporter.

    Root beer isn't my favorite, but sometimes a an ice cold one just hits the spot like nothing else and a root beer float is my favorite ice cream treat.

    Chocolate comes from a it's a it's a food!

    1. Yes, my history as a newspaper reporter made the movie more interesting for me.

  4. Chocolate is a food ( least in my world) I liked Whiskey Tango. I think Tina Fey did this movie to prove that she could do more than comedy. When I was a little girl my grandmother used to make us root beer floats.We would sit on the deck at night in the summer and watch the stars twinkle. My favorite flower is a Shasta Daisy ( hence my username) they are like me not fancy. I tend to cry often these days but that's a long story of love loss and found. Hope you have a good week.:-)

    1. I am sorry you are sad. That is a nice memory of your grandmother. Hope you have a good week, too.
