Sunday Stealing

Click here to play along.

181. What's the BEST rock band that you have seen live? That would be the Boss' E Street Band.



182. Could you image being in a situation where you would run from the police?
I actually did once. I jaywalked in the Loop and a policeman actually followed me in his squad car calling to me from his loudspeaker. "Lady in the black coat! Wait!" It was a one-way street and I just turned and walked the other way (a benefit to being a pedestrian that drivers don't have) and trotted off, pretending I didn't hear him. He called me over and over again, presumably to scold me. I guess I wasn't heinous enough to merit the siren. Sorry. I know this isn't exactly Bonnie Parker stuff here.

183. Have you ever been asked for an autograph?
Only for the closing and subsequent refi's of this condo purchase. Quite a few documents involved in such a transaction.

184. What would you change about your living room?
Paint job. New drapes. New sofa. Professional carpet cleaning. I suspect the sofa will be first.

185. Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home?
Plastic

186. Last hug?
My friend John

187. Have you ever had to make up your mind?
To say "yes" to one and leave the other behind? Yes. Ironically, the one I said "no" to I still hear from regularly. He has graciously continued to include me in the big events of his life, including his children's graduations. The one I said "yes" to is a true repulsivo who also reaches out to me on a frighteningly regular basis. I have nothing to say to him ... ever. Except, if his gestures are ever in person or by phone instead of through e- and snail mail, "Here is the restraining order."

188. What is on top of your refrigerator?
A styrofoam cooler and a box of corn chex. And, frequently, my cat Reynaldo.

189. Did it work out for you in terms of kids? (Meaning how did it work out & are you happy. In other words, from “Have none, wanted none” to “8 kids & 3 grandkids)
Sometimes I think no, but usually I'm fine with it.

190. Are you afraid of the dark?
No.

191. What if you had three wishes – what would you wish for?
  1) Happiness for my friends; 2) Financial security; 3) More wishes

192. Do you feel sad often?
I get the blues, yes. But not since Anthony Rizzo began playing first base.

193. Have you ever been in lust for an extended period of time?
Only my whole life. Woody Allen and I are both proof that Freud was wrong about the latency period.

194. Do you shower daily?
At least.

195. Have you ever prank called someone?
I probably did when I was in junior high, but I don't recall.

196. If you have a garage, is it cluttered?
No garage.

197. You are about to die. What do you do with your worldly possessions?
I left word that my books, CDs and DVDs should go to the annual library book sale.

198. Tell us about the first time that you bought a car.
That would be never

199. What is your favorite type of music?
His Lordship's.


200. What’s your family like? 
Ha!

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