Sunday Stealing

To play along, click here.

1. Three things that scare me: Clowns, squirrels, air travel

2. Three people who make me laugh: my oldest friend, Stephen Colbert and the late Nora Ephron
If he played first base, we'd have a trifecta

3. Three things I love: The Beatles, The Chicago Cubs, and men with good hair.

4. Three things I hate: RWNJs, uncooked tomatoes, and Patricia Heaton. (Everybody Loves Raymond is on almost constantly and I cannot stand the sight of that woman.)

5. Three things I don't understand: Why people smoke, anyone who doesn't love pets, and why Patricia Heaton keeps getting work

6. Three things on my desk: Lots of paper, mug, vase

7. Three things I'm doing right now: this meme, giving my cat Connie her nighttime dose of affection, and trying to figure out this Hart to Hart episode that I tuned in at the 45 minute mark. (Yeah, it's a stupid show, but I find Robert Wagner's voice hypnotic.)

8. Three things I want to do before I die: I don't answer these questions because I'm afraid that once I accomplish the three things, I have to die.

9. Three things I can do: Write, speak well in public, fart around/do nothing

10. Three things I can't do: Sing, dance, lose weight

11. Three things you should listen to: me, The Beatles, and if ever you're in Chicago, our local PBS news show Chicago Tonight

12. Three things you should never listen to: Patricia Heaton (don't look at her, either), Fox News and anyone in a bar talking religion or politics (unless it's me)

13. Three things I'd like to learn: Spanish, self-discipline, and SEO (search engine optimization)

14. Three favorite foods: steak, pizza, ice cream

15. Three beverages I drink regularly: Coke, orange juice, water

16. Three shows I watched as a kid: The Man from UNCLE, Batman, That Girl


  1. I enjoyed your side comments. As president of the local Patricia Heaton fan club, I was a bit insulted. I mean other than the fact that I have no idea who she is. I never watched an entire episode of ELR. I didn't care for anyone on the series...

  2. I keep adding to my bucket list. Something gets checked off but two things get added, it seems.

  3. I really don't know who Patricia Heaton is. I am sure I've seen ELR but it wasn't something I paid attention to.

    Interesting about the bucket list items. I think I have it in my head that the reason I don't ever finish and publish a book is because once I do, I'll die. That's the first time I've ever told that to anyone, and now I just announced it to the world. Or at least your blog readers. Maybe it'll lift the curse.

  4. YAY! That Girl :) Cubs :) Patrica Heaton non-fan club :) :)

  5. I loved reading your all your answers!

    Having watched about three of ELR I concur in not being able to stand his wife but also his mother - well, his dad either. Raymond should have been a bachelor with no family close by.

  6. It cracks me up that you defined SEO, which I know about, and not RWNJ, which I had to Google. And your repeated mentioning of Patricia Heaton was hysterical!!

  7. LOL. You have some serious ire for Patricia Heaton. Just stopping over from Sunday Stealing.


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