Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing

1. When was the last time you tried something new?

A. Yesterday. I learned how to use the spreadsheet program available with google.

2. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?

A. Nancy Drew

3. What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

A. We all end up dead anyway.

4. What gets you excited about life?

A. Goals, projects, having my husband at home.

5. What life lesson did you learn the hard way?

A. All of them.

6. What do you wish you spent more time doing five years ago?

A. Well, it was more like six years ago now, but I wish I had listened to myself and not the doctors and tried to cure my gallbladder issues with diet, acupuncture, etc. before agreeing so readily to surgery.

7. Do you ask enough questions or do you settle for what you know?

A. I ask a LOT of questions.

8. Who do you love and what are you doing about it?

A. I love my husband. I do his laundry.

9. What’s a belief that you hold with which many people disagree?

A. That unregulated capitalism is evil. Note the adjective.

10. What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago?

A. I can move around better.

11. Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?

A. I think it is a sign of an upset person (or maybe a really happy one). It doesn't have anything to do with weakness or strength.

12. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

A. If I had the money, I'd go on and get my Ph.D. even though I'd in my 60s by the time I finished it.

13. Do you celebrate the things you do have?

A. I don't take them out for walks or anything, but I appreciate that I am more fortunate than some.

14. What is the difference between living and existing?

A. Living is understanding that you are part of the greater world around you, and that your place in it, miniscule though it may be, is special. Existing is just going through the motions.

15. If not now, then when?

A. When somebody makes a question #15 that makes sense.

16. Have you done anything lately worth remembering?

A. Yes, I have. I've been a good citizen.

17. What does your joy look like today?

A. It looks like blue skies and slightly greening grass.

18. Is it possible to lie without saying a word?

A. Of course.

19. If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?

A. Depends on how much I thought the person needed me.

20. Which activities make you lose track of time?

A. Writing, reading, video games, playing music.

  1. Way to go on learning the spreadsheet program! I have never learned how to do that.
    I have heard many people say that about their gallbladder. I had mine out 2 years ago, I was so sick and was sick for a long time. I feel so good now, I hope I do not start having problems. Loved your answers! Have a nice day!

  2. Did you know there are new live-action Nancy Drew movies? I had no idea, but saw there was one at the local theater complex yesterday when looking for something to take the grandkids to see. I wonder how they hold up to the old 70s vintage TV show?

  3. I like your answers very much. I was a big fan of Nancy Drew and her adventures.
    I agree on the unregulated capitalism. One man calls capitalism government sponsored usury. Not far from the truth at all.

  4. Do you drive a blue roadster like Nancy's? (What is a roadster, anyway?)

  5. Congrats on learning Google Sheets!
    15 -- LOL!!!
