Sunday Stealing

Ask Questions, Yo

1. Are you a very open or private person? Depends where I am and who I'm talking to. I'm very blabby and can talk about current affairs and celebrities, which gives appearance that I'm open and friendly. But at the end of the conversation, strangers know little about me.

2. Change one thing about the world what would it be?
That people would live their religious faith -- whatever faith that may be -- rather than proselytizing. Living one's faith brings us together, trying to recruit sets up an "us vs. them" that is not healthy.

3. Live in any country/city, where would you choose? I love Chicago and would never leave. But if I could live anywhere in this city, I'd choose the Palmolive Building. It's a beautiful art deco building from the 1930s. It's historic -- the light you see is The Lindbergh Beacon, added way back when to help aviators navigate over Lake Michigan, and it was also the headquarters of Playboy back in its heyday. And my view would either be Michigan Avenue or the Oak Street Beach! Now all I need is $14 million for a condo unit.

4. What perfume do you wear?
Exceptional. It's crisp and rather uncommon.

5. How are you feeling right now?
Happy. I've got the windows open and I can hear church bells.

6. If money was no object, where would you move to?
Shit, I answered this already. See #3.

7. Who was the last person to make you cry?
The Cubs Kyle Schwarber. This terrific kid suffered a season-ending injury in game three of the year, before the Cubs even got home to Wrigley Field. On Opening Day, he came out on crutches and nearly 40,000 fans got their feet to wish him a speedy recovery. I get verklempt just thinking about it.

8. What age do people usually mistake you for?
Late 40s. Which makes me happy because I'm a fat old broad in my late-50s.

9. Is there a song which can bring you to tears instantly?
I'm not much of a crier, but "Save the Best for Last" will do it. I so loved the man that song reminds me of. Still do. Wherever he is, I hope he's happy.

10. Do you play video games?

11. What do you think about before you go to bed?
Whatever I'm reading

12. Have you ever online dated?

13. Do you get cranky when you’re hungry?

14. What drink did you last consume?

15. Have you ever tripped while walking up the stairs?
Ever? Of course. I've been going up stairs for a half century.

16. Is there something you’re happy about at the moment?
Yes. Right now both my cats are healthy and happy and within my sightline, so my life is good.

17. Are you a shy person?
Not shy, but I am introverted.

18. Were you happy when you woke up today?

19. Do you like rain?

20. Can you go a day without music?
Not willingly


  1. I like your answer to #1, I am much the same.

  2. Your answer to #1 is the best.

  3. Arietta and the no hit ball was special! They are poised for a great year. My Yanks are gonna suck until the big contacts go. They can call it whatever, but they are in fact rebuilding...

  4. I'm a lot like your answer to question 1, also.
    Your answer to two was brilliant. Yes, that is exactly the result of people doing that.
    Also, it is very good to hear that both the kitties are healthy and you can relax a bit more. Z ♥'s Kitties, too.


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