Sunday Stealing

Facebook Questions

1) What is your favorite TV show (currently)? This Is Us

2) Would you like to be a child again? Not really

3) Has anyone ever told you that school times were the best period of his/her life? Would you say that to someone? Why? My mom insisted those were her happiest days. I think it's sad that you could peak at 16. Also, I recall high school as a rather miserable time anyway.

4) How's the weather? It's November in Chicago, so you need a winter coat to be comfortable and you should enjoy the sun when you can see it because it sets so damn early.

5) Do you like camping? No

6) Do you believe in paranormal phenomena? Not really

7) If you would create a holiday, what would it be called and how would we celebrate it? When would this holiday be? Every February 9, we would celebrate International Beatles Day. We would flash peace signs and remind one another that love is all you need. Best of all, we would revel in the joy and that fabulous music. 


8) What word(s) do you dislike? Can you tell why? Anything that ends in "tard." Like "retard," or "libtard." It's mean, ugly and people who use it should be ashamed of themselves.

9) What color do you dislike? What do you associate with it? I have thought about this, and I don't really dislike any color.

10) Do you believe in otherworldly creatures, eg. ghosts, etc? OK, how is this different than #6?

11) Pick two of your favorite fictional characters. Where are they from (what movie, book, etc?) and why are they your favorite? Katie Morosky from The Way We Were and Linda Seaton from Holiday. These ladies were true to themselves.

12) If you could change anything or add anything to your body would you? (this can be interpreted however, but, think, would you like to have fins or extra hands?) I'd rather just have my old waistline back.

13) What are some family traditions you have/had growing up? Do you still continue them, if yes, why, if no, why not? This isn't a tradition, really. But my mom always included a salutation in each Christmas card she wrote. I have adopted that.

14) What do you think of tattoos? Do you have any? I don't have any tattoos and, consequently, don't think too much about them.

15)  What is the most disgusting habit some people have? Smoking. It stinks.
16)  If you could bring back one TV show that was cancelled, which would it be? The West Wing.

17) What was the most unsettling film you have ever seen? The Exorcist
18) What book has impacted you the most? Saving Graces by Elizabeth Edwards. It taught me to share more, to strengthen my relationships by allowing others to see my vulnerability. Needing help does not indicate weakness. It's sharing the bad times that makes celebrating the good ones that much sweeter.

19) You're on Death Row and get one final meal: What is that meal and why do you choose it? I'd like a nice, juicy rib eye steak. Mashed potatoes. Chocolate cake. An unending supply of Coke. It would leave me sluggish, but that wouldn't really matter under the circumstances, would it?

20) What is the first profession you remember wanting to become as a child? I wanted to sing and dance. But since I'm a tone deaf klutz, that really wasn't in the cards for me.



  1. Delicious menu there! I had forgotten the movie Holiday. I like anything with Katherine Hepburn. She was always wonderful.

  2. I’m also living in a burb of Chicago. Go Cubs!
    #15 Smoking. I didn’t think of it because it’s always there. My spouse won’t quit. Our doctor has prescribed gum and patches and every visit he harps on quitting. I quit cold turkey in 2015 before a surgery.

  3. My daughter keeps trying to get me to watch This Is Us. I need to start from the beginning on Netflix, I guess, since everyone assures me something is missing from my life with this show.

  4. We agree on The Exorcist. I still shudder when I think of it. In fact I am struggling to type because of the shudder ...




  5. I never did understand people that talked about high school all of the time. It was fine, but not my favorite time.
    I am glad someone else does not like camping. I thought I was the only one. Loved your answers! Have a nice day.

  6. I don't know why I fell behind with This Is Us. I guess I don't watch much tv anymore at all. Just junky, guilty-pleasure stuff on Bravo.

  7. I hope you sing and dance when no one is watching. The stove doesn't care what you sound like.
