Sunday Stealing

1. What was the last clothing item that you bought? In January I took advantage of Macy's after Christmas sale and bought $200 worth of big sweaters for just $100. Then, you guessed it, we had this freakishly warm winter/spring and I barely got to wear them. Oh, well.

2. If you could stay one age forever, what age would you choose? 35. I felt very womanly in all the best ways when I was 35.

3. When you say “lol”, are you really laughing? No. Let’s face it, no one is really laughing.

4. What is the most interesting thing you’ve done in the past year? Oh, it has to be the purchase of my new toilet! It’s a Wellworth (who knew toilets had names?), purchased at The Home Depot and installed by my handyman. Admit it, you're jealous!

5. If you started a business, what would it be? Pet sitting. I have a way with critters.

6. Do your friends/family/coworkers know about your blog? God, I hope not!

7. How long does it take you to write an average blog post? I don’t know. I truly have never thought about it.

8. How do you keep up with the blogs you follow? Behold the blog roll at right.

9. What is your bedtime? Is sex always involved? Sex is never involved. This makes me sad. :(

10. Introvert or extrovert? Yes. The answer depends on the setting.

11. What is your biggest fear? An airplane crash.

12. What is the best job you ever had? I developed the copy for product packaging and promotion for a haircare company. I learned a lot and it was fun. Eventually the office politics got to me. But when it came to the actual writing, it was my favorite job and I’d be there still.

13. Dog person/cat person/both/neither? Both. I have always had cats and love them, but I could love a dog, too. Unless you were traumatized by a critter in your youth, I don’t get having a preference. Every critter is individual, just as every person is.

14. If you had $1,000 to spend any way you wanted, what would you do with it? $333 would go to charity, $333 would go to bills, and $334 would go to fun.
15. How do you "dress" your toast? Butter and jam.
16. How do you feel about snow? With my hands, tee hee. I like it fine. It’s fun.
17. What was the worst job you ever had? Writing sales and promotion materials for a software manufacturer. It was painful.

18. What song can you not stop listening to?

19. Love your name or hate it? My first name is fine. My last name is kind of dopey. At one point I was dating a guy whose last name is Smith and I truly thought about marrying him, just for a name everyone could pronounce and no one would make fun of.
20. How did you choose your blog/twitter handle? It was available.
