Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Ace Meme, Part One

Cheers to all of us thieve
s!

1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
I have a scar on my left thigh that dates back to The Earthquake of 08. There was a 5.2 tremor in Southern Illinois and we felt it up here in Chicagoland. I don't know if it was the quake that awakened me or my cat's reaction, but we were both frightened and as he leaped off the bed, he scratched me.

2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM My favorite is this limited-edition print of the Beatles Anthology artwork, signed by Klaus Voorman.


3. DO YOU SNORE, GRIND YOUR TEETH, OR TALK IN YOUR SLEEP? I'm guilty of two out of three.

4. WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO? Pop/rock, especially those lads from Liverpool.

5. WHAT TIME WERE YOU BORN? I've told this many times, and am glad to report that the fuss about revisions to the astrological signs won't deprive me of my freakazoid birth saga:
I was born at the stroke of midnight between November 21 and 22. The stroke of midnight does not exist legally, so the hospital told my mom she had to choose -- 11:59 or 12:01. She was still quite doped up (I was a big baby) and confused about what she was asked, but she chose 12:01, which made it 11/22. Astrologers love this story because I was born on the cusp of a cusp.

6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW? To feel better (see the tragic post below)

7. WHAT DO YOU MISS? Long phone calls to my best friend

8. WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION(S)? Right now, I am loving the Hempz® butter I am applying to the chapped skin under my nose.

9. HOW TALL ARE YOU? 5'2

10. DO YOU GET CLAUSTROPHOBIC? No

11. DO YOU GET SCARED IN THE DARK? No

12. THE LAST PERSON TO MAKE YOU CRY? I don't remember.

13. WHAT'S YOUR WORST FEAR? Losing my autonomy, being dependent on others for day-to-day things.

14. WHAT KIND OF HAIR/EYE COLOR DO YOU LIKE ON PEOPLE YOU'RE ATTRACTED TO? Brown on both counts, though lately I find myself drawn to men who have the salt/pepper
thing going

15. WHERE CAN YOU SEE YOURSELF PROPOSING? I don't

16. COFFEE OR ENERGY DRINK? Coke. Caffeine and plenty of sugar.

17. FAVORITE PIZZA TOPPING? Sausage

18. IF YOU COULD EAT ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Actually, now
that it's top of mind, sausage pizza

19. FAVORITE COLOR OF ALL TIME? Cubbie Blue

20. HAVE YOU EVER EATEN A GOLDFISH? No. To borrow from Janis Joplin, "and furthermore, I don't intend to."

21. WHAT WAS THE FIRST MEANINGFUL GIFT YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED? There was a red dress that I got in junior high that meant the world to me. It had gold buttons on the sleeves and a gold belt. It made me feel kinda pretty.

22. DO YOU HAVE A CRUSH? Always.

23. ARE YOU DOUBLE JOINTED? Yes.

24. FAVORITE CLOTHING BRAND? Jones New York

25. WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE FEMALE/MALE CELEBRITY? Paul McCartney


26. DO YOU HAVE A PET RIGHT NOW? My dear old fat tom, Joey, is snoozing beside me
right now. The other two are within sight. Yes, I'm a crazy old cat lady.

27. WHAT KIND IS IT? See above

28. WOULD YOU FALL IN LOVE KNOWING THAT THE PERSON IS LEAVING? Yes. I mean, I never felt I had a choice as to who/when I fall in love.

30. SAY A NUMBER FROM ONE TO A HUNDRED? 37

31. BLONDES OR BRUNETTES? For what?

32. FAVORITE QUOTE? "He who has health has everything." Did I mention that I feel re
ally crummy right now?

33. FAVORITE PLACE?
The Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field. Cub pitchers arrive at spring training in less than a month, so despite what you see outside your window, baseball is just around the corner!

  1. Good answers. I've never tried a sausage pizza topping, maybe I should. I also didn't think of Coke as an energy drink (I was thinking of the new ones like Red Bull and Monster); if I had have done coffee might have taken second place. Have a great Sunday and hope you feel better soon.

  2. I was in the bathroom during that earthquake. Talk about freaked out.

    Have a great rest of your weekend.

  3. Sorry about your lousy sinus infection! I recommend alcohol, preferably a martini.

  4. Born on the cusp of a cusp--how cool! And I'm relieved to not have to change my astrological outlook on life. I would've made a terrible Virgo.
