Sunday Stealing




Do you wear slippers?  No. And yet people give them to me, so I have a couple pairs laying around.

How many pictures are in your living room? Six pieces of framed artwork. Two by Thomas McKnight, whose work I really love. He frequently does rooms without people, so you feel like you're entering the scene and beginning your own adventure. This is his Lake Shore Drive. It depicts my dream apartment, and it hangs over my decidedly not-dreamy dilapidated sofa. (The new sofa arrives Friday!)

Do you ever watch Brady Bunch reruns? Yes. Not intentionally. Often they come on after the show I was watching ended and I leave it because I'm the laziest slug who ever drew breath.

Are you allergic to anything? Bee sting. Eyrthromycin, an antibiotic that is supposed to be more tolerable than pencillin but it makes me nauseous. Morphine, which means I'd made a pathetic drug addict. And some of the more noxious chemicals that are used in constructing and rehabbing homes, like paint thinner and the stuff that makes carpeting stain resistant. Fortunately all but the last are easy to avoid. I just have to carry my epipen with me all the time (bees) and I take Allegra every morning.

When was the last time you called in sick? Monday, May 20. I had two moles removed. Thank God they turned out to be benign!

Have you ever been in a car accident?  Never. I think it's part luck, part owing to the fact that I don't drive.

What is your favorite snack food? If I want salty, chips. If I want sweet, a Snickers bar.

Have you ever seen a tornado? No. I live in Chicagoland, so I worry about them. But so far I've been lucky.

If you won a million dollars, what would you buy first? I'd pay off my mortgage! I'd love to know that I'll have a roof over my head, no matter what. BTW, gotta check that lottery ticket I bought yesterday.

What time is it right now? 6:41 AM

Do you think it's cool for men to wear flip-flops? Sure, unless they have thick, yellowing nails or cracked white heels. I've noticed men don't give their feet as much thought as women do.

How many pairs of shoes do you own? Too many! I'm looking at 5 pairs of sandals right now.

Do you think you are a hypochondriac? No

Do you own a dictionary?  Yes, Merriam-Webster


Where was the last place you went on vacation?  The Spa at Colonial Williamsburg. Here's a photo (nicked from Tripadvisor) of the nail salon. I love going off by myself to a destination spa.


Do you talk about your friends behind their back? I post about them, too.

Are you actually fat but in complete denial about it?  I know I'm fat but I don't think I'm in denial about it. I think I'm in denial about how much work it's going to take to remedy the situation.


What color is your mouse pad? No pad. The current Apple mouses don't need them. (I don't know about PCs.)

Does your kitchen have a theme? HA! I'm proud that it has a coordinating color (yellow).

  2. Can men wear sandals and be cool.

    Yes, they can. As long as they don't wear socks with them.

    Big fucking no no.

  8. I think it would be scary to be allergic to bees. Not that you get stung that often but on the one chance you did I'd freak out.

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