Sunday Stealing

Fun Fifteen  
1. You have been awarded the time off from work and an all-expenses paid week anywhere in the United States. The catch is that it must be somewhere you have not been before. Where do you choose to visit? This is a great question! I landed on the Lake Austin Spa. I've been to Texas, but only Dallas, never Austin. Since someone else is paying, I could stay in my own little cabin with my own personal whirlpool. I'd walk the gardens and bike the hills and spend hours upon hours in the spa.

 2. Name your guilty pleasures.
Right now my guiltiest pleasure is doing nothing. I'm battling a cold and have literally done nothing today. And I'm good with that.

 3. The best kind of milkshake is:

 4. What do you value most in other people?
A good sense of humor

 5. Be honest. Do you sneak some raw cookie dough when you’re baking cookies?

 6. Have you ever looked back at your life and realized that something you thought was a bad thing was actually a blessing in disguise?
A very bad romantic breakup turned out to be a very good thing. I shudder to think of what my life would be like if I'd stayed with him.

 7. What is the most beautiful place you have ever visited? Washington DC at night took my breath away.

 8. Are you more of a thinker or a feeler?

 9. Name three things you are thankful for right now.
1) That I got everything I needed to do done on Friday so I could spend Saturday recuperating from this cold; 2) That I'm independent and am free to baby myself like this when I have a cold; 3) The internet and cable keep me in touch with the world without my moving my cold-plagued ass from this sofa.

 10. Have you ever participated in a three-legged race?
When I was in Girl Scouts, about 200 years ago

 11. When you are at an event that plays the National Anthem, do you place your hand over your heart?

 12. Have you ever been on the wrong side of the law?

 13. When was the last time you unintentionally surprised someone else?
At the reception area at work. The doors are heavily frosted and I opened it just as someone on the other side was reaching for it. Yeah, I know it's boring, but it's true.

 14. When was the last time you deliberately surprised someone else?
Nothing comes to mind. Sorry.

 15. What was the last really funny movie you watched?
I watched Meatballs twice last week when I was hanging around, waiting for the Cute Handyman to install the new lighting and medicine chest in my bathroom.


  1. I hope your cold is better soon. Summer colds are awful.

  2. Now, Meatballs is a funny movie. I haven't seen that in years! Not very many comedies these days are funny to me(--like The Hangover... just didn't do it for me).

  3. Summer colds are the worse. I am surprised there haven't been more with the hot and cold weather we have had.

  4. Time to re-watch Meatballs! D.C. is stunning.

  5. I can't even imagine a life without cable or the internet these days.

  6. Maybe we were in the same 3-legged race together. That's about when (and where) my last one was!

    Take care of you and get better fast.

  7. What a great answer for #1!!

    Now I want to go find "Meatballs" and watch it again.

    Feel better soon....

  8. Washington is a beautiful city, though I've never seen it at night...I can just imagine. I wanted to watch Meatballs when it was on last month, but the Hubby changed the channel.


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