Sunday Stealing


1. What is the most fun thing you have ever done? Ever? That's a little broad, isn't it? So instead I'll tell you the most recent fun thing I did: I laughed a lot with my oldest friend on the phone on Friday. That made me happy.

2. Are you left-handed or right-handed?
I'm a rightie. In fact, my chiropractor deemed me "unusually right dominant." Meaning I have strength in my left arm but little dexterity in my left hand. Can't even brush my teeth with my left hand.

3. What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?
Again, ever is just too broad for me. So instead I'll you the most recent really nice thing someone did. A former coworker, Doreen, sent me a magazine published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles White Album. She said the moment she saw it, she thought of me. How sweet was that?

4. What is the biggest animal you’ve seen in the wild?
I've never been in the wild. I think the biggest animal I've ever seen was Ziggy the Elephant. He weighed about 2000 lbs.

5. What is the smallest animal you’ve seen in the wild?
I've never been in the wild. I suppose a baby bunny is the smallest animal I've ever seen.

6. Do you ever have funny dreams at night?

7. If you could make a law for your country, what would it be?
I'd ban assault weapons.

8. What would you do if you were invisible for a day?

9. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?
Emma Stone. Because she's so cute.

10. What would you like to change about yourself?
My complete lack of discipline.

11. What is your daily routine.
Get up, get out of bed. Drag a comb across my head.

12. What would your perfect day be like?
Sleep in. Have a coffee house breakfast. Go to the ballpark. Sit in the sun and watch the Cubs beat the Cardinals. Stop for a beer in Wrigleyville to celebrate.

13. How old were you when you learned to read?
First grade.

14. What is the most interesting thing you know?
President Kennedy's classmate and lifelong best friend, Lem Billings, invented Fizzies.

My favorite flavor was root beer

15. What makes you nervous?
Air travel

16. What is your favorite flower?

11:00 ish

19. What time do you get up?
6:00 ish

20. Do you know how to swim?


  1. Laughing with a friend is always the best medicine!! Have a great day!!

  2. I should probably wish to change my lack of discipline, too. I'm totally devoid of it. Also, I am completely jealous of being able to just drag a comb across your head in the morning...I have to spend a lot of time unsnarling and conditioning the rat's nest of curls on my head. I long to get it straightened again, but my hubby is not a fan.

  3. Watching the Cubs beat the Cardinals? Gal!!! Just kidding. I love that rivalry. I cannot wait for them to play each other. It is so much fun. I will be watching a Spring Training game today at noon. Loved your answers! Have a great day!

  4. I'm not a baseball fan (oh the horror!), but I do love the sound of your perfect day!

  5. I love your morning routine--I can't stop humming it! ;)

    I remember Fizzies!!!

  6. How cool to ride an elephant... Id be afraid to ride so high up! yikes!!

  7. I finally finished my taxes today to send to the accountant and I am so relieved to get that off my mind. We have four businesses and it is such a hassle. Now on to other things, since you're in the biz - I've been asked to write an entire magazine. I can write it and I can take pictures but I don't know how to lay the thing out. Any suggestions, other than hire somebody to do that part? Because it is a volunteer thing and I don't know anyone who would volunteer to do that.

  8. How cool about JFK's school mate!And very cool you got to ride an elephant.
