Sunday Stealing


1. What is the craziest, most outrageous thing you want to achieve? It's neither crazy nor outrageous, but I long for peace of mind.

2. Have your parents influenced what goals you have? Of course. My parents influenced everything about me.

3. What is a fashion trend you’re glad went away. Fringe and macrame. This hideous thing is an evening bag from the 1970s.

4. What word or saying from the past do you think should come back? "Flippy." In Jailhouse Rock, Elvis' girl whines that he hasn't even noticed her new outfit. He declares it, "Flippy. Real flippy."

5. What do you bring with you everywhere you go? My housekeys and a mask.

6. Is there such a thing as a soul? Of course.

7. Is there life after death? Of course.

8. Do you think there will ever be a third world war? I hope not. I fear if there is such a war, it will be the last we ever see.

9. What smell brings back great memories? I was happy to smell apple cinnamon at Thanksgiving. It's a happy holiday smell.

10. How would you like to be remembered? As a good friend.

11. What kind of music are you into?

12. What is the biggest surprise of your life? Some things I thought would be easy (romantic relationships) haven't been. Some things I thought would be hard (career) came easily.

13. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Hamburgers.

14. Where is the most awe inspiring place you have been? Washington DC. Walking up the steps to the Lincoln Memorial, seeing the Jefferson Memorial at night, actually made my heart swell a bit. I don't think I want to ever go near the Capitol again. Not after January 6, when those Trumped lunatics defiled it.

15. Describe your life in six words. Nah. I'll give you two: She tries. 



  1. Good Sunday morning - I love your two word summary of your life. I think that would be mine as well. I agree that the Lincoln Memorial is a "sacred" spot in our nation. Hubby and I are heading to D.C. (hopefully) in April to see many of the amazing, awe-inspiring things there. It is a great place, but I completely agree with your about the Capitol. So sad. We lost something very important on January 6, 2021. Those who participated and supported it should be ashamed for the rest of their lives. It is upsetting that most won't be. The rest of your answers on this post would almost completely match what I would say - right down to the Hamburgers. Hope you have a nice day and I will see you again soon.

  2. The Jefferson memorial is my favorite. I haven't been to DC in many years and, sadly, feel the same way about it now as you do.

  3. Ha ha - yes - that bag is hideous. I remember them well.




  4. I had an opportunity to chaperone some students on a DC/NYC trip but we've postponed it so many times due to the pandemic, I think it's going to be canceled completely. I was looking forward to touring DC again, I haven't been in 20+ years and there is so much more to see now.

  5. Great answer on the last question! Also, I didn't like macrame either!

  6. I think you succeed quite well at trying. I had forgotten those macrame bags. They are hideous in retrospect. I haven't been to DC since I was a child. I wonder if I'll ever get there, now.
