Sunday Stealing

 Sunday Stealing: Facebook Favorites


    Your favorite songs All My Loving (The Lads from Liverpool), Tears Dry on Their Own (Amy Winehouse), September (Earth Wind & Fire)


    Your favorite bands
The Beatles ... and, um ... more Beatles


    Your favorite actors or actresses 

It changes. Currently I'm going through my Cary Grant period. He was both debonair and fearless. I like a handsome man who is willing to be silly, and does silly so well!

Lucille Ball, too. Gorgeous and goofy. And, always, all in.

    Your favorite books
The best books I've read recently have all been biographies. The one that has stayed with me is Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter by Kate Clifford Larsen. Her life was a tragedy, but the influence she had on her siblings was lasting. Because of that, this largely unknown woman has had an impact on millions of lives over generations. In no small part, because of her, we have The Special Olympics and the Americans with Disability Act.Your life wasn't for nothing, dear Rosie.

    Books you dislike There's a series about a Key West food critic who solves mysteries that almost caused me physical pain. The heroine is SUCH a ninny!

    Your favorite movies
I recently saw Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid again on the big screen and found it even better than I remembered. Funnier, more touching, and too cool.

    Your favorite TV shows
Friends and This Is Us spring to mind.


    Your favorite foods/drinks
Burger, fries and Coke


    Your favorite animal
I suppose I must say these two. Though I consider them less "animals" and more "roommates."




    Your favorite scents
Cinnamon


    Your hobbies/ things you do in your free time
Fart around on the Internet, read, watch movies


    Your pet peeves
Space hogs. Unless you paid for two seats on the train, you shouldn't take two seats on the train. You're rude, and you're stealing. Shame on you!

Blurred Lines. Whenever people talk about how positive and upbeat Pharrell Williams is, I'd like to remind them that he wrote this piece of shit and appears in the video.

  1. You went to the TCM film festival? I'm jealous. I'm a big Cary Grant fan too. At one time I think I had all of his movies on tape (pre-DVD). I should have mentioned "This is Us." Wonderful show.

  2. I think cooking is a craft. Maybe you could get over your dislike of scifi by learning to cook Klingon meals . . . just kidding.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
