Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The ABC Meme

A – An advantage you have – I think fast on my feet.

B – Blue or brown eyes – Neither. (They're green.)

C – Chore you hate – Laundry

D – Dad’s name – Bill

E – Essential start of your day – Caffeine. Specifically and non-negotiably in the form of Classic Coke.

F – Favorite color – Blue

G – Greatest thing you’ve ever done that made you feel really good – I don't know that I've ever done anything GREAT. I've done a lot of little things that made me feel really good. During my mother's recent health problems, I have been grateful and pleased that I've been able to pay her Medicare B insurance.

H – Habit you have –
I speak faster and faster the more excited I get.

I – Issue you hate that the world tries to make you pursue – The Middle East. I don't hate The Middle East, obviously. It's just that it's so complicated and so neverending and fills me with such a sense of dread.

P – Pet Peeve – Women at the health club who take up valuable locker room bench space with their iPods, lotion bottles, etc., and leave no room for my ass so I can get dressed. Men may do it, too, but I am not welcome in their locker room, much to my chagrin.

if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does." It's Groucho, and it always confuses people.

  1. LOVE that quote, that's the first time I've "heard" it. ;-) I wish I was quick thinking on my feet: I'm a beat behind.

  2. Grouch rocked. Enjoy your Sunday...

  3. Great answers! Have a happy Sunday :)

  4. Thinking on your feet is a good trait to have. In your case, you're so fast it should be called thinking on your "beat."
    Allison is a beat behind.
    I'm a half beat behind.

    We should start a band.

  5. Ah... caffeine. My drug of choice.

  6. Must have recipe for pumpkin spice bars.

  7. Good answers. Wish I could think fast on my feet. Thought the Groucho quote was great (it certainly confused me).

  8. Okapi!
    Nice list and enjoyed reading your answers. I liked your name...for somewhat obvious reasons-when I saw it in the list at Sunday Stealing, so just had to come on over...

  9. Good thing you posted a pic of that animal... never heard of it. :)
