Sunday Stealing

To play along, click here.

1. Three things that scare me: Clowns, squirrels, air travel

2. Three people who make me laugh: my oldest friend, Stephen Colbert and the late Nora Ephron
If he played first base, we'd have a trifecta

3. Three things I love: The Beatles, The Chicago Cubs, and men with good hair.

4. Three things I hate: RWNJs, uncooked tomatoes, and Patricia Heaton. (Everybody Loves Raymond is on almost constantly and I cannot stand the sight of that woman.)

5. Three things I don't understand: Why people smoke, anyone who doesn't love pets, and why Patricia Heaton keeps getting work

6. Three things on my desk: Lots of paper, mug, vase

7. Three things I'm doing right now: this meme, giving my cat Connie her nighttime dose of affection, and trying to figure out this Hart to Hart episode that I tuned in at the 45 minute mark. (Yeah, it's a stupid show, but I find Robert Wagner's voice hypnotic.)

8. Three things I want to do before I die: I don't answer these questions because I'm afraid that once I accomplish the three things, I have to die.

9. Three things I can do: Write, speak well in public, fart around/do nothing

10. Three things I can't do: Sing, dance, lose weight

11. Three things you should listen to: me, The Beatles, and if ever you're in Chicago, our local PBS news show Chicago Tonight

12. Three things you should never listen to: Patricia Heaton (don't look at her, either), Fox News and anyone in a bar talking religion or politics (unless it's me)

13. Three things I'd like to learn: Spanish, self-discipline, and SEO (search engine optimization)

14. Three favorite foods: steak, pizza, ice cream

15. Three beverages I drink regularly: Coke, orange juice, water

16. Three shows I watched as a kid: The Man from UNCLE, Batman, That Girl


  1. I enjoyed your side comments. As president of the local Patricia Heaton fan club, I was a bit insulted. I mean other than the fact that I have no idea who she is. I never watched an entire episode of ELR. I didn't care for anyone on the series...

  2. I keep adding to my bucket list. Something gets checked off but two things get added, it seems.

  3. I really don't know who Patricia Heaton is. I am sure I've seen ELR but it wasn't something I paid attention to.

    Interesting about the bucket list items. I think I have it in my head that the reason I don't ever finish and publish a book is because once I do, I'll die. That's the first time I've ever told that to anyone, and now I just announced it to the world. Or at least your blog readers. Maybe it'll lift the curse.

  4. YAY! That Girl :) Cubs :) Patrica Heaton non-fan club :) :)

  5. I loved reading your all your answers!

    Having watched about three of ELR I concur in not being able to stand his wife but also his mother - well, his dad either. Raymond should have been a bachelor with no family close by.

  6. It cracks me up that you defined SEO, which I know about, and not RWNJ, which I had to Google. And your repeated mentioning of Patricia Heaton was hysterical!!

  7. LOL. You have some serious ire for Patricia Heaton. Just stopping over from Sunday Stealing.
