Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: Year End Hodgepodge

1. Where have you found unexpected magic or delight this holiday season? I had a lovely time at the new The Tennessee Williams Exhibit I discovered in Key West. It's not that it's extensive or detailed. It's not. But it was done by locals with such affection for their late neighbor that it made me happy. Here's my post about it.

2. What's your favorite type of holiday gathering? Will you/have you gathered in your favorite way this month? I like being surrounded by people who love and accept me. And yes, I've enjoyed the holidays that way.

3. Time has named 'The Silence Breakers' (women who came forward with stories of harassment)  'person of the year' for 2017. Would you agree? If not, who do you think deserves the title? YES! Yesyesyesyesyes, 100x yes. I could not agree more with the recognition for The Silence Breakers. This is how change happens. Bravo to Ronan Farrow for sticking with the Weinstein story and starting the ball rolling.

4. How did you spend your time this year? Are you happy about that? Elaborate. I wasted a lot of time this year. Agonizing and fretting. Farting around on Farmville. I hope I will be more disciplined in 2018 (though I doubt it).

5. Bid farewell to 2017 in ten words or less. Thank God, everyone I love is more or less healthy.

6. Insert your own random thought here. The Cubs play the Marlins in Miami on March 29. GO, CUBS, GO!


  1. I would love to see that exhibit on Williams. It's now on my list with the places Hemmingway lived.
    I am glad they brought Weinstein down. The man is a pig (though that's kind of insulting to pigs).
    Oh, Farmville....I got caught up in that when it first hit Facebook. I had to quit it cold turkey when I couldn't do anything without first taking care of my farm and I realized I was feeling guilt if my virtual plants or animals died which led to having to check on my farm several times a day. It brought out the worst in any OCD tendencies I may have.
    Have a blessed and happy new year!

  2. #4--I enjoyed wasting time. Isn't that quote about time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time?

  3. Go cubs! And you know what? If you're happing playing Farmville, play Farmville. You answer to no one but yourself. So do what you like. Be who you are!

  4. FarmVille is a cute game. I was headed to being a mega farmer and then said, “Wait a minute!” Shortly after that I plowed it all under and gave away all the animals to good homes.
    So WITH you on three! Women can’t stand divided on this... no more divide and conquer on this odious practice among the unfair sex.
