Sunday Stealing

Easter Meme
Five Things I Have a Passion for: 

•  American history. For example, I was tickled to discover this fellow. He is the earliest American Easter bunny, painted on a tile as a gift to a child, from approximately 1795. I love this stuff.

•  Animal welfare. Cats and dogs are like corks on the water, they go where the waves (or we) send them. That makes us responsible for their health and happiness. I feel this keenly.

•  The Beatles. The Lads from Liverpool shaped my world view of just about everything, and I'm eternally grateful.

•  The 1960s. The Beatles. Civil Rights. The Kennedys. Motown. The space race. It's the decade that changed everything. I can't get enough of what we now call "mid-century."

•  The Cubs. This could be the year!

Five Things I'd Like to Learn Before I Die: 

•  Spanish
•  Organization
•  Self discipline
•  Technology (I admit I'm having a hard time keeping up)
•   Um .... You got me on #5

Five Things I Say A Lot:

•  Where are my sunglasses?
•  What the fuck?
•  Sorry I'm so late.
•  Why do they hate us? (In regards to management sticking four of us in a crappy clown car of an office)
•  I could, if I was someone else entirely!

Five Books and/or Magazines I Have Read Lately: 

•  White Collar Girl by Renee Rosen (Novel)
•  Talk Show/Brief Encounters by Dick Cavett (Memoirs)
•  Cheap Shot by Ace Atkins (Mystery)
•  Franklin and Lucy by Joseph Persico (Biography)
•  US and People (because I love William, Kate, George and Charlotte)

The Italian poster
Five Favorite Movies:

•  The Way We Were
•  Mary Poppins
•  Psycho
•  Summer Stock
•  A Hard Day's Night


  1. I don't recall Summer Stock... it sounds familiar but it might be because it's one I've always meant to watch.

  2. The early bunny picture is totally impressive.

  3. I also have a passion for animal welfare. We have to be the voice for those that do not have a voice!

  4. Great answers. Love the early Easter Bunny! Very interesting that the Beatles shaped your worldview on everything; I'm sad I missed that period in history. Right there with you on animal welfare!
