Sunday Stealing

MORE -- Part 3

Most daring dare you have ever done?  I lie down in the middle of a (comparatively) busy street. It was stupid. I was in high school.

When is the last time you did something you knew was wrong? I renewed a magazine subscription. It was a waste of money, because I have issue upon issue on my dining room chair I haven't touched. And yet I renewed it anyway.

What was on your mind most today? All the stuff I have to get renewed, like my driver's license, my library card.

Have a best friend? Yes

If you were upset, who’ s the first person you would go to? Depends on what's upsetting me. Different friends have different gifts.

When was the last time someone yelled at you? Last winter, a crazy lady yelled at me on the el, and then the next night another crazy lady yelled at me in the Petco parking lot. I was beginning to think I was a crazy lady magnet.

What have you done today, so far? Cuddled the cats, watched TV, farted around on the internet

What did last weekend consist of?
Not much because I had tummy trouble last weekend and had to stay close to home

What are you listening to? The TV is on

Who were you last in a car with? A cab driver

Have you ever been called cute?
All the time. I'd love to hear "pretty," but I'm learning to settle for "cute."

Describe how you feel right now in one word: Lazy

Has anybody ever told you that you talk too fast?  Often

Did you have fun yesterday? Yes

Do you like to cuddle? Depends on the cuddler

Do you think someone is thinking about you? Yes

Are you stubborn? Very

Is there a friend, boyfriend/ girlfriend, or ex that you will never forget? Yes

Thinking back, are there people you have no idea why you hung out with?

How’s your heart?
I hope it's OK. I know my cholesterol is too high.

Are you easily amused? 
I have reached Level 61 in Farmville 2. That's a good indicator that I am very, very easily amused.

Do you speak more than 2 languages?  Nope

Are you doing anything tonight? I'm always doing something

Is there a person of the same sex who means a lot to you?  Of course

Is your hair naturally straight? No

What happened at 10:00 am? At 10:00 AM yesterday I was getting dressed to run some sunny Saturday errands. 10:00 AM today hasn't happened yet. 

What were you doing at ten last night? Paying my bills. Happy to report I was able to pay my mortgage another month in advance. With things tenuous at work, that gives me comfort.

Have you made someone happy today? Yes

Is it hard for you to get over someone? Very

Think it’s disgusting when girls get really wasted? No more so than boys.

How long did it take you to get over you last ex? 

When you are home alone do you still close the door when you shower?
Yes. If I don't, the steam from the shower sets off the smoke detector.

In the immortal words of Ricky Nelson ...

"I'm walking, yes, indeed."

I walked 4.5 miles today. To the vet, to CVS, to the grocery store. It was a beautiful day -- just over 70º and sunny. I thoroughly enjoyed being outside, on foot, listening to a "Cat Who ..." book on my headphones. I haven't done it in ages. I should do it more often.

Saturday 9

1) Have you ever carefully set up dominos and then watched them fall? Or built a house out of playing cards? Nope. I have neither patience nor steady hands.
2) In this week's song, Big Pink lead vocalist Robbie Furze sings, "The hottest love has the coldest end." Have you ever had a relationship that started out so promisingly and passionately but then quickly flamed out? No. I've never had a relationship quickly flame out. They die slow, torturous deaths.
3) This is from Big Pink's CD, A Brief History of Love. What about your personal history of love? How many times would say you have truly been in love? Three
4) Nicki Minaj sampled this song for her own, "Girls Fall Like Dominos." Nicki won't be back on American Idol this season. Is your reaction a) delight or b) sadness or c) a yawn. I couldn't watch Nicki and Mariah. Hopefully the handsome duo of Harry Connick and Keith Urban will draw me back in.
5) While nationally the news centers on foreign policy and the economy, Sam's hometown
is abuzz over the new Asian-fusion restaurant on Main Street and whether it can get a liquor license. What's the big local story where you are? Da Bears. Seems that when Brian Urlacher retired, Jay Cutler didn't say goodbye and his feelings are hurt. No, really.
6) Mary Jane Kelley is believed to be the fifth and final victim of Jack the Ripper. OK, now it's your turn. Share a random fact that's rattling around in your brain. Cats who have extra toes on their front paws are often called "mitten cats" or "Hemingway cats" but the proper term is "polydactyl."
7) Crazy Sam cursed last night when she dropped a can of tomato paste on her foot. (Hey! It really hurt!) When was the last time you swore? I can't remember. Which is unusual because I have a notorious potty mouth.
8) Sam has a grocery bag filled with hoodies and t-shirts she no longer wants and plans to
take them to The Salvation Army store. What do you do with your gently used clothes? Toss them or donate them or hand them down to a friend or relative? Goodwill. I'm a big fan. They do good work, and I'm always impressed by how friendly and helpful the personnel is at my local store/drop-off location.
9) Do you blush easily? I don't know. No one has ever commented on it.
