Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Question Meme

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship? No. But that's only because Sir Paul, Mark Harmon and my beloved future Hall of Famer, Greg Maddux, are all currently in relationships and are too upstanding to cheat on their significant others to make my fantasies come true. Oh yeah, and none of them know I exist.

02) What was your dream growing up? I was going to be a wildly popular singer, maybe branching out into TV and movies. My dream was dashed in junior high when my music teacher explained what the term "tone deaf" means.

03) What talent do you wish you had? See #2.

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be? You know, I haven't had a kir royale in quite a while, and since you're buying ...

05) Favorite vegetable? Peas.

06) What was the last book you read? Unwise Passions, the biography of Ann Randolph. She rocked!

07) What zodiac sign are you? Sagittarius. Barely. I was born at 12:01 AM on November 22. 90 seconds earlier and I would be a Scorpio.

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where. Just a single piercing in each ear.

09) Worst Habit? Complete lack of discipline.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride? No. Because I don't have a car.

11) What is your favorite sport? Go, Cubs, go!

12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude? I'm cautiously optimistic. When I start to spin out, I awfulize -- imagining the absolute worst -- then realize I can handle it and try to get on with it.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? Ring the alarm, call 911 on my cell, and then sit in the corner and wait for help. What would you do?

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you? I let myself get way too involved with a real creep and it had ramifications that I still deal with.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you. I am wearing support hose as I complete this meme. And I'm just delighted about it.

16) Do you have any pets? Yes. In fact, Charlotte Ann Cat is sitting just over my left shoulder, watching me complete this meme.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly? You would be waiting in the vestibule downstairs because I don't buzz open the door for unexpected strangers.

18) What was your first impression of me? That you're kind of pushy about wanting to come over.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary? Scary, with their painted-on, pointy "I just killed my wife" smiles. Shudder.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be? I'd have a waist again.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience? What are we going to do?

22) What color eyes do you have? Green.

23) Ever been arrested? No.

24) Bottle or can soda? Bottle.

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it? I'd put $1000 away each for my mom, my niece and my nephew. I'd take a quick trip to Boston or DC, and I'd pay down my B of A credit card (see counter at right) with what's left.

26) What's your favorite place to hang out at? Monk's Pub. It's been my favorite dive for decades. I recommend the steak sandwich.

27) Do you believe in ghosts? You mean like Caspar? No. But I believe that those who have gone to God still watch over us.

28) Favorite thing to do in your spare time? Watch TV or fart around online.
29) Do you swear a lot? Fuck yes!

30) Biggest pet peeve? These damn support hose.

31) In one word, how would you describe yourself? Short.

32) Do you believe/appreciate romance? Yes to both.

33) Favorite and least favorite food? Thumbs up: Burgers. Thumbs down: Sushi.

34) Do you believe in God? Yes.

I'm boycotting #35 because I'm sick beyond endurance of all these plugs. (Blame it on the support hose.)


  1. Totally in agreement with you on the clown question. Creepy! Have a great Sunday :)

  2. So....curiosity here...what are the traits of the two zodiacal signs, and would you fit better in the latter?

    My S S is here, if you'd like to visit with me and haven't today.

  3. Did I mention that I bought Unwise Passions? It's next on my TBR pile. On your recommendation, I can't wait to get to it!
