Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing

1. Have you ever tried to learn (or re-learn) a foreign language as an adult? Which one? What worked for you?

A. I have occasionally tried to re-learn Spanish but I seem to only remember a few phrases and words. I've never really been serious about it, I guess.

2. Do you donate blood? Do you know your blood type?

A. I do not donate blood because of medication I am on. I do not know my blood type.

3. Have you ever been in a play or musical?

A. Not since elementary school.

4. Do you use certain text or ring tones for specific people? Who gets their own? Or do you just use the default on your phone?

A. I have a default ring tone that everyone gets. It is not the default tone on the phone (it's a Lord of the Rings tune), but it is the ringtone that rules them all.

5. When did you get your first digital camera? Do you still shoot on actual film, or all digital now?

A. I think I bought my first digital camera around 2001 or so. I do all digital now.

6. What do you think someone else would say the most daring thing you’ve done is?

A. It's a toss-up between going up in a hot air balloon or taking a plane ride with a known alcoholic.

7. Do you talk with your hands?

A. Not as bad as some people.

8. Given the choice in a restaurant – would you go with a booth or table (or bar!!!) for seating?

A. Table. As I've aged, it's become harder to get up off those soft booth seats.

9. What kind of milk did you drink, growing up? And now?

A. When I was a wee lass I am told I drank goat's milk because I couldn't drink cow's milk, and I still don't drink cow's milk. I don't drink any milk at all.

10. How do you keep track of all your passwords? Do you make your passwords super complicated and change them often, or use the same ones over and over?

A. My passwords are horrendously complicated and not a single one is the same. I keep track of them on index cards.

11. Are you a note taker?

A. Yes. Are you?

12. Do you remember what your first social media posting (or status update) was on Facebook or Twitter – without looking it up? What was it?

A. I have no idea. I'm also not going to go back and look it up.

13. Do you have a “power” song?

A. I Will Survive, by Gloria Gaynor

14. Do you have an eclectic mug collection, or is your stuff all matchy matchy?

A. Nothing matches.

15. Do you have a junk drawer in your house/garage/at work/wherever?

A. I have several junk drawers.

16. Do you ever get the urge to watch a favorite scene from a movie, and watch just that scene?

A. Occasionally. I usually do that on youtube. For instance, my favorite scene from Practical Magic is this one:




17. Have you ever woken up and felt guilty from a dream you had, or, mad at someone else for something they did in the dream?

A. Yes.

18.  How old were you when you took your first commercial flight? To where did you fly?

A. I flew to New York and then to Europe when I was 16. It was a school trip to Spain and France.

19. Are you good at keeping track of your things – or do you easily misplace them? Do you ever leave anything behind when you travel?

A. I don't travel much but at home I keep track of things not only for me but for my husband, who apparently can never remember where he left screwdrivers, flashlights, and other paraphernalia.

20. Is there any place you go where time seems to stand still? What is it about that place that makes it that way?

A. Inside my head when I'm reading.

  3. I love that Practical Magic scene too. I always wanted friends I could do that with. Sadly most of my friends didn't like the same things I did so we didn't stay friends long. Have a great week.
