Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Dark Side Meme

1. You’re building your dream house. What’s the one thing that this house absolutely, positively MUST HAVE? (other than the obvious basics of course) A good location. I want to be able to leave the house and walk around in a neighborhood that makes me feel comfortable and welcome.

4. iPhone 4 or Droid, which do you want? I'd prefer the cash, thank you.

5. When you’re feeling down or lonely or just generally out of sorts, what do you do to cheer yourself up? I turn to Cubs baseball, or I listen to The Beatles. Those two things have been cheering me up for decades now.

6. Tell me about something or someone that you love that most people seem to hate. Nancy Grace. She's so hideous, so hostile, so inconsistent and insincere, she's sublime.

7. What do you want to be when you grow up? A great singer/actress. Being tone-deaf and plain got in the way.

8. Would you go on a reality show if given the chance? NO! Dear God, no.

14. Which fictional, TV show character you would shag anytime? Leroy Jethro Gibbs of NCIS

15. What is your greatest pet peeve? People who are so in love with their own victim status they do nothing to change it.

16. Tell me about your most recent trip of more than 100 miles? Our client is located 114 miles south of here. I went down there last Thursday. The creative presentation went well, and I rewarded myself with a trip to their local mall, which includes an A&W, so I had a root beer float.

17. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus? Thesaurus

18. Do you have a nickname? What is it? My nicknames come and go. Years ago, my dad called me, "Tiger."

  2. Good answers. Now I know why you thought my answer about the female president was so wise. Also, coincidentally, turns out that I'm now doing the same thing you were doing ten years ago; hope you made the right decision. IMDB's definitely a great site. That Daily Affirmation video was great too, and I don't know who Ryan Theriot is but that bobblehead's definitely a ringer for Tom Cruise. Have a great Sunday.

  3. That bobble head is funny! It does look like Tom Cruise.

    I love that daily affirmation video. I'm such a zombie in the morning, I can't gather my thoughts enough to do something so meaningful.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
