Sunday Stealing

Make a difference today

1.  What is the favorite piece of art you own?

I have this, numbered and signed by the artist. I love it and never get tired of gazing upon it. Klaus Voormann is a real Renaissance man. He not only did this, The Beatles Anthology CD/video cover, he also did the famous Revolver artwork. And he's an accomplished bass player. That's him plunking out the first chords on Carly Simon's "You're So Vain."

2.  The most expensive bill you paid last month.  Comcast Xfinity.

3.  What’s the last thing you apologized for? Crowding the aisle at Ulta. That store is awfully tight.

4.  If you could do today over, would you change anything? I wouldn't have wasted as much time as I did watching a rather hysterical TLC documentary about Princess Diana's death. No, Princes Philip and Charles did not have Diana killed because she was carrying Dodi's baby. Because they wouldn't do that, because she wasn't pregnant, and because orchestrating an assassination in a tunnel would be ridiculously difficult.

5.  What is the largest TV screen in your house? 20". It's a 17-year-old set and it's hopelessly out of date, technologically speaking. But it still works and it seems a shame to toss it into a landfill when the picture and sound are still so good. When the smaller set in my bedroom finally kicks the bucket, I'll move this warhorse back there and get a new set.

6.  What did you buy today? Moisturizers. Murad and Neutrogena.

7.  I wish I had a million dollars.

8.  How many photos did you take today? None.

9.  Last thing you wanted and didn’t get. Thousand Island dressing. I forgot to pick it up at Whole Foods.

10.  What was the last new thing you tried? I read a story I wrote in an open forum.

11.  Who is your hero? Right now, my friend Barb. She is facing a tremendous amount of adversity with grace. I admire her, and hope I can help her.

12.  Today I feel really secure knowing that when I start receiving Social Security, it will be enough to help me make ends meet.

13.  Whose life did you make a difference in today? My cats, Connie and Reynaldo. Because of my opposing thumbs, I can open the kibble and fill their bowls.

14.  What would have made today perfect? If the Cubs had won. Alas, they did not. I'm not even sure they're in first place anymore! (I can't bear to check the standings just now.)

15.  Did you thank anybody today? Oh, sure. Like when someone held the door for me, bagged my purchase for me, etc.

Bonus: If you were a Muppet, which would you be? Beaker. I like Beaker.


  1. The art is pretty cool...even though I am not much of a Beatles' fan. (sorry,sorry, sorry)
    Yeah, Comcast is right up there in the upper echelons of bills.
    I hope things get better for your friend.
    The kitties had better appreciate your thumbs!

  2. Beaker!!! What a great answer!

  3. That's ok, Stacy. I was not a Beatles fan either!

    Loved the "opposable thumbs" comment. Our dogs only let us live here because they can't open their own cans either Lord help us if they learn.

  4. Oh ya! Beaker! Lol. That's a great clip. And, 13 is a scream! 👌
    You friend has the hardest job in the world right now, bless her heart.

  5. OK, Beaker made me smile for the first time today. I hope you can help your friend, too.

  6. I love Beaker. Meep.


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