Sunday Stealing

My Random Randomness Meme

How did you choose your baby's or pet's names? My cats were named thusly -- Joey for Joey Tribiani on Friends, Charlotte for Chan or Charlotte Ann (the daughter in A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries) and Rey for Reynaldo Curtis (Benjamin Bratt's character on L&O).

Have you ever been fishing? Once, as a child. I didn't care for it much.

Have you ever had your national flag painted on your face? No.

What was the last social faux pas you made? Nothing springs immediately to mind. But I'm always saying something stupid.

What makes you nostalgic? Listening to the oldies on the radio.

What's the scariest thing you've ever done? I know this may be hard to believe, but I'm proud of myself every time I get on a plane. It terrifies me.

What fairy tale character would you most associate with? She's not a fairy tale, she's a fantasy, but I've gotta go with Mary Poppins. I'd love her to float in, take over and show me how to organize my life.

How much do you tend to swear in public? Same as in private. My vocab is my vocab. I'm pretty one size fits all.

If you ruled your own country, who would you get to writer your national anthem? Bruce Springsteen.

Who is the most intelligent person you know? My lawyer. He can make sense out of the most circuitous gobbledygook, and he somehow always knows the right thing to say.

What's the craziest thing you've ever done for someone? Nothing springs to mind. Sorry.

What's the worst piece of advice anyone has ever given you? "Just ignore him. Look the other way."

If you had to describe yourself as a flavor, what would it be? Apple cinnamon.

      If you had to describe yourself as a car, what would it be? I wouldn't. I'm the least car-literate  person on the face of the earth.

 If you had to describe yourself as an animal, what would it be? An okapi, because I'm rare and wonderful. I'll be visiting my zoomorphic self twice before yearend. My nephew and I are going to the local zoo next weekend, and I hope to visit Okapi Habitat at the Lowry Zoo in Tampa -- a birthday adventure with my cousin in November.

 Do you think laughing at someone else's misfortune is wrong? Depends on the situation.

 If a loved one was to serenade you, what song would you most like them to sing? Great question! "Show a little faith, there's magic in the night." Thunder Road. Bruce.

Would you ever let your parents pick out a partner for you? Good goobies, no! My parents didn't end up liking one another very much. Why would I trust their judgement for me?

 Have you ever tried spam? (the meat product) Of course.


  1. apple cinnimon, that's a good flavor! I couldn't think of anything except for ice cream...happy sunday stealing!

  2. I love that you think you are rare and wonderful! Because of course you are.

  3. I don't think I knew Rey was named for Benjamin Bratt's character. I love it!

  4. Mary Poppins in the Traver's books was a bit intense.

    Thunder Road is SUCH a great song!

  5. OK, I had to look up what the Okapi was. Pretty cool looking. You must be a Springstein fan. My brother was a huge fan. I like his music too.

  6. Hey, we go see the Okapi every time we go to Zoo Miami here, at least once per month! Love those strange creatures. :) Your answers were really cool, I liked each one!
