Sunday Stealing

To play along, click here.


What would you totally eat right now?:  Eggs. I want eggs.

Do you always wear a certain piece of jewelry?:  I always wear a ring on my left hand. I need it in order to tell my left from my right. I always feel for it when I'm giving directions.

What kind of jeans do you like?:  Old Navy Flirt. As does everyone else in America, I guess, as I couldn't find any at the store on Black Friday.

What's something on your want list?: I'd love an Ulta giftcard. A store finally opened nearby and I can see myself wandering the aisles, guilt free, armed with my giftcard.

Is animal print tacky?:  I can hear WNTW's Clinton Kelly telling me I look like a pelt every time I wear my one and only leopard print cardigan. And yet I like it anyway.

Give me a good quote that you like.:  "You cannot change the winds, but you can adjust the sails." Elizabeth Edwards

Do you bite your nails?:  When I'm bored

What kind of smells do you like?:  Spicy. Cinammon, vanilla spice, etc.

Do you wear perfume or cologne?:  Cologne

What do you think is overrated?:  The outrage over stores being open on Thanksgiving. No one complains about the thousands upon thousands of low-paid workers who work every year at NFL stadiums on holidays -- parking cars, selling us beer, hawking foam fingers, cleaning the restrooms, etc. -- instead of being with their families. And it's every bit about the money for the NFL as it is the stores. The networks charge advertisers dearly for time on holiday games.

Next movie you want to see?:  All Is Lost or Anchorman 2, whichever makes it to my local theater first.



Would you change your eye color if you could?:  I can, and so can you. Colored contact lenses. I tried blue ones once for a week while waiting for my prescription to come in and I didn't like it. I'm green eyed.

And what are your goals for the remainder of this year?:  To savor the holiday season. It's less than a month long.

When is the last time you were at the hospital?  Almost a year ago. I took a tumble on some slick pavement, landed hard and was worried about a concussion so I went and got a CT scan. Turns out I was fine, but I'm not sorry I went. Head injuries are nothing to trifle with.

Who introduced you to your current significant other? If you’re single, who introduced you to your last ex? Human resources, I suppose. There was an office shortage at the agency we worked at and we ended up as roommates. It was fun, although dallying with a coworker I shared space with was not the smartest thing I've ever done.

  1. ". . . look like a pelt. . ." That made me laugh! (I don't often hear [read?] the word "pelt" used in a sentence!)

    Have a great week!! ~ Mary

  4. All is Lost does look interesting. However, I will wait until Anchorman 2 is on DVD to watch it.

    Happy Sunday!

  5. Holy cow I am so with you on the Thanksgiving thing. I've had to work many in my day and I was well compensated for it. I still had time for dinner. I really get mad about people sticking their noses into other people's business by telling them what to do

  6. I think the outrage should be over everything - why on earth can't we ALL just have a single day to STOP and just be HUMAN.

  7. I did think about the people working for the NFL stadiums as well. No one should have to work, yet its become tradition to most.

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