Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The 5000 Question Meme, Part Three

Cheers to all of us thieves!

51. Make up a definition for the following silly words...

Fruitgoogle: Confirming how to spell "pomegranate" by plugging it into Google

Ambytime: The hour when you take your sleep meds

Asscactus: The imaginary spines that appear on any ass you long to touch but know you shouldn't. For example, in The Thorn Birds, Father Ralph should have respected the asscactus growing on young Meggie because he was a priest, after all, and shouldn't have been fixating on fondling parishioners.

52. What was the last thing you made with your own hands? The bed. I changed my sheets.

53. What was your favorite toy as a child? My Lassie Dog

54. How many TV’s are in your house? Two

55. What is your favorite thing to do outside? I enjoy long walks. They help clear my head.

56. How do you feel when you see a rainbow? I miss my best friend. We have a running joke about rainbows that stemmed from a comment I once made which he thought was stupid but I still maintain was just ill-phrased. I'd repeat it but it was a "you gotta be there" moment.

57. Have you ever dreamt a dream that came true? No. Which is unfortunate because I have had more than one revolving around either administering or receiving a massage from late-80s vintage Bruce Willis, aka "David Addison," my ultimate TV boyfriend.

58. Have you ever been to a psychic/tarot reader? Yes, indeedy.

59. What is your idea of paradise? Either administering or receiving a massage from late-80s vintage Bruce Willis, aka "David Addison," would be nice.

60. Do you believe in God and if so what is he/she/it like? I believe in God because God believes in me and He is love.

61. Do you believe in hell? Yes. But I think we make our own hell here on earth. Then, when we die, we all go to Heaven. As with Question #60, I know this to be true, like gravity, and am not interested in any discussion.

62. What one thing have you done that most people haven't? I kissed Bruce Springsteen, and even better, he kissed back.

63. What is the kindest thing you have ever done? I can't think of anything specific.

64. Have you gone to WTIT's facebook page and hit "like" yet? If not, why not? (No pressure.) Are you sure Leo asked this in the original meme?

65. What holiday should exist but doesn't? World Beatle Day. It should be observed around this time -- during the first week in April -- because in April, 1964, the Lads held the Top 5 positions of the Billboard Top 100. No artist or band has accomplished this before or since. The songs, included here only to impress Bud, were Can't Buy Me Love, Twist & Shout, She Loves You, I Want to Hold Your Hand, and Please, Please Me.

66. What holiday shouldn't exist but does? Presidents' Day. I think we should celebrate Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays individually. What the hell, they both rocked. Besides, February can be a dreary month and two days off would be nice.

67. What's the best joke you ever heard? A grandmother is watching her grandson playing on the beach. A huge wave comes and takes him out to sea. She pleads, "Please, God, save my only grandson. I will live a blameless life if only you return him to me. I beg of you, bring him back." And a big wave washes the boy back onto the beach, good as new. She looks up to Heaven and says, "He had a hat."

68. Where is the most fun place you have EVER been? Wrigley Field.

69. Is your hair natural or dyed? Yes. It's natural now, but I dyed it Lucy Riccardo red for decades.

70. Do you have any deep dark secrets or are you pretty much up front? Yes

71. What is under your bed right now? All manner of shit I probably don't need and should throw out.

72. If you were in the Land of Oz would you want to live there or go home? I think I'd stay.

73. If you drive do you frequently speed? N/A

74. What is the world's best song to dance to? The Macarena. See?

75. What song was on the last time you danced with someone? I remember dancing with my friends John and Steve to this last summer. Liquor was involved.

Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Hey Nineteen

1. What was the best thing about being 19? Everything was a little perkier

2. Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity? Water. Even just washing my hair gives me a fresh perspective.

3. Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when... my stomach growls

4. Name 3 fads from your teenage years. The Bee Gees, Boone's Farm, Charlie cologne

5. What's the best birthday present you've ever had? My friend Kathleen works for The Chicago Tribune and she gave me the press plate for the front page announcing Obama won the Presidency. Looking at it again, I can see how much the last couple years have aged him.

6. What's your oldest possession? My plush Lassie Dog, not unlike this one, though she's not so much plush anymore.

7. Do you have any phobias? Air travel (or, more precisely, not surviving a crash). I'm also none too crazy about squirrels and clowns.

8. This is pretty much the start of Spring (regardless of the snow in the east this week!); what's on your to-do list for the next few weeks to transition away from this long Winter we've been having? Sorting my clothes as I put my sweaters away and bring my blouses and t-shirts out. I'd say I'll be doing the same things with my shoes, boots, and sandals but let's face it, I never put my sandals away from fall.

9. Which of the 50 states in the U.S. would you rather die than live in? While my feelings about it aren't that drastic, I'd have to say Ohio.
