Sunday Stealing


1. If you could spend a day in someone else’s shoes who would it be and why? Jennifer Aniston. Because sometimes -- like when I'm standing in the mud on a rainy day, waiting for the bus -- I think, "This wouldn't happen to Jennifer Aniston." So I wonder what things do happen to my favorite Friend that vex her.

2. Which celebrity gets on your nerves the most, and why? Judge Jeanine. Her personal life is worthy of a Kardashian. Quick story: her husband cheated on her and got another woman pregnant. To avoid paying child support, he dismissed the woman as "mentally unstable." DNA proved the kid was his. He ended up paying his former mistress a ton of back child support and giving her a car, presumably to ensure her silence as Judge Jeanine's career took off. And that's just one example. Therefore, I resent it when Judge Jeanine feels qualified to lecture me on the immorality of my liberal politics.

3. If you were going to bury a time capsule, what would you put in it? For 2020: a mask, a bottle of hand sanitizer, and toilet paper.

4. What is your saddest memory? I've been heartbroken a time or two. I don't wish to rank them.

5. Would you rather be in your pajamas or a suit all day? My jammies.

6. What’s the strangest place you’ve ever gone potty? In the bushes. I hated it.

7. How old were you went you had your first kiss? Junior high.

8. Do you have any strange or unique phobias? I'm afraid of squirrels. When I was about 5, my dad told me a vivid, scary story about how a little boy (just my age) was bit by the squirrel he was feeding (just as my dad had caught me doing). The squirrel was rabid and sunk his sharp teeth into the boy, and wouldn't let go. The police came and shot the squirrel, who wouldn't even open its jaws in death. The poor boy was raced to the hospital in an ambulance, with the bloody squirrel carcass hanging from his arm. Naturally, none of that happened, but the story scared me ever since.

9. If you could bring back one toy from your childhood, what would it be? I think it would be fun to play Barbies again.

10. If you could be any Disney villain, which would you be? This is hard. But Maleficient was powerful and had a cool headpiece, so I'll go with her.

11. If your life was a novel, what would the title be. The Thing of It Is, because I say it a lot.

12. What do you need more of in your life? Empathy.

13. What are your top 3 quotes? 

•  Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim. (Nora Ephron)
•  Things do not happen. Things are made to happen. (John F. Kennedy)
•  We are the clay and You are our potter. All of us are what You made us. (The Book of Isaiah)

14. What do you want people to remember about you? That I was there when they needed me.

15. What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made? I stayed too long in a bad relationship.


  1. Enjoyed your answers today.
    Have a good Sunday.

  2. I stayed away from politics today, but I agree with you on your choice. And we picked the same villain.

  3. No one will beat your squirrel story. lol

  4. Squirrels are harmless - more scared of us to be honest. But they are really quick - so be afraid.




  5. I don't know why staying in my jammies all day feels weird. I mean, if I'm in bed all day (which I've been known to do) it's awesome but if it's daytime, I don't like wearing them when I'm up.

  6. so good! Jenn Anniston did have Angelina Jolie to deal with... but I kept thinking WWJAD (what would J. A. do?)
    Love the squirrel story, and your quotes, and would like to come play barbies with you... if only we could control the world like we did our barbies. (Of course they had to sit by their legs opening up into a V. LeeAnna

  7. I like that Nora Ephron quote. And what on earth was your father thinking, telling you such a story? Wow.

  8. Well, Jen's husband left her and every moment of it was covered in all the gossip rags. That might have vexed her a bit. I'll agree, though, that if living well is the best revenge, she's paid him back in spades.

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