Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Time Traveler Meme


1. Depending on your age, go back 10, 15, 20, or even more years.
2. Tell us how many years back you have traveled and why.
3. Pretend you have met yourself during that era, and tell us where you are.
4. You only have one "date" with this former self.
5. Answer these questions.

Okay, as we start, what year is it and how old are you? 1980, and I'm 22

1. Would your younger self (YYS, from here) recognize you when you first meet? Barely. I'm much heavier than I was then, but not that much fatter than I was in high school.

2. Would YYS be surprised to discover what you are doing job wise? I don't think so. I was fearless, if not ambitious, in those days.

3. What piece of fashion advice would you give YYS? Sure, those spike heels look good, but they really are hell on your feet. They're not worth it, Young Gal.

4. What do you think YYS is most going to want to know? About my love life. All I really had on the mind those days was men.

5. How would you answer YYS's question? It's amazing how many frogs you're going to kiss.

6. What would probably be the best thing to tell YYS? As I recall, no one could tell me anything in those days.

7. What is something that you probably wouldn't tell YYS? That Kristin shot JR.

8. What do you think will most surprise YYS about you? How much I now love my alone time. Back then, a Saturday night at home would be cause for mourning, not celebration.

9. What do you think will least surprise YYS? How far I've come professionally. On the one hand, I didn't work very hard in those days. On the other hand, I had no idea how much hard work it would take.

10. At this point in your life, would YYS like to run into "you" from the future? No. I think that Gal would find this Gal unutterably and depressingly straight and boring.

  2. Ewwwwwwwwww, spike heels. Yes indeed, not only your feet but your back. Which makes me remember mini-skirts. Dunno why, but it does. LOL

  3. The dreaded home-alone-on-Saturday-night blues. Funny how back then we thought it was the end of the world. These days give me my family, my dogs, a good book, and a glass of wine and I'll call Saturday night a success!

  4. I couldn't think of anything to tell my younger self that would shock me into taking a different path than the one I have taken.
