Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Dwight Twilley Meme

Cheers to all of us thieves!

1. The latest book or movie that made you cry? Sex and the City. The montage about New Year's Eve. The older I get, the more I treasure my friends, old and true. And I appreciate how hard it would be to navigate across town on a snowy holiday.

2. The fictional character most like you? Katie Morosky from The Way We Were

3. The greatest album, ever? The Beatles, aka The White Album. There may be albums with greater musical credibility, but I can't think of another one that's more fun and more listenable.

4. Star Trek or Star Wars? Why? Neither one. Sorry. I don't like sci-fi.

5. Your ideal brain food? Pizza

6. Everyone is proud of a certain accomplishment, which one for you? I have become an adept public speaker.

7. You want to be remembered for ...? Being a true friend and a good writer. (Which is how Wilbur eulogized Charlotte.)

8. Let's talk about recording artists. Who do you find the most inspirational? Bruce Springsteen. The Boss puts words to my feelings.

9. The creative masterpiece you wish bore your signature? Little Women. Girls not yet born will see themselves as Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. (OK, maybe not Amy.)

10. Your hidden talents . . .? I can wiggle my right ear.

11. The best piece of advice you actually followed? "Don't listen to what they say. Watch what they do."

12. The best thing you ever bought, stole, or borrowed? My cats. While technically I "bought" them, I like to think of them as "adoptions."

13. What is the most comfortable clothes that you wear? Jeans and a t-shirt.

14. Your dinner guest at the Ritz would be? Doris Kearns Goodwin. Author, historian and passionate Red Sox fan.

15. Time travel: where, when and why? Springfield, IL in the mid-1860s. So I could meet the Lincolns, Abe and Mary.

16. Stress management: hit man, spa vacation or Prozac? Spa. Aaaah ....

17. Essential to life: coffee, vodka, cigarettes, chocolate, or . . .? Coke Classic.

18. Environment of choice: city or country, and where on the map? City. US of A (Chicago or Boston)

19. What do you want to say to the leader of your country? Inspire us. Lead us. Watch a tape of JFK or a kinescope of FDR. This country responds when we're asked to.

20. Last but certainly not least, what are you working on, now? Feeling Christmas-y.


  1. Good answers. Impressed that you're adept at public speaking, it scares the life out of me. That was a good bit of advice you were given. Coke Classic's definitely an essential. Have a great Sunday!

  2. LOL @ "not Amy"...I'll do Springsteen soon on Rock n Roll Fridays meme for you. : ) I'm feeling chrismasy too. Heading out for tree decor' today. : ) Have a great week Gal!

  3. Little Women...great choice. And I too am not much on sci-fi.

    Here's my Sunday Stealing link. Hope you can stop by.

  4. Interesting- watch what they do. I like that.

    Have a great day!
    Join us for Monday Mayhem!

  5. You really can't beat The Boss! Happy Sunday...

  6. Great advice for the President.
