Sunday Stealing


1. Would you rather be the guest or the host? Guest. I hate having people over.
2. What do you like to wear when you feel fancy? Layers. I feel if I'm wearing a jacket or cardigan over a t-shirt, I'm fancy.
3. How often do you try something completely new? Depends on the situation. I can be adventurous when ordering in restaurants. I am resistant to change when it comes to process at work.
4. Do you enjoy weddings? NO! Hate, loathe, despise, and abominate them. My art director is toying with moving in with her "boyfriend" (they're both near 60 years old, so "boyfriend" kinda creeps me out) and instead of being happy for her, I honestly thought, "I hope it doesn't work out so they don't get engaged and I don't have to go to the wedding." Why can't more people run away to Vegas?

Be like them

5. Have you ever had something customized? All the time. I love giving personalized gifts.
6. Do you cook spontaneously or meal plan? I kinda meal plan. For example, this coming week I think I'll be having salmon. Which means I took the salmon out of the freezer and moved it to the frig to defrost.
7. Books you like to read over and over. I'm on something of a Nora Ephron binge these days. I just reread (and rewatched) Heartburn, her roman-a-clef about the end of her marriage to Carl Bernstein.
8. What are you really good at? I'm good with critters. Cats, dogs and the occasional rabbit. Critters and me, we get along.

9. Do you sleep with windows open or a fan on? Right now, both. Which is funny, because it's 20ยบ outside. But I live on the top floor, and heat rises through the floorboards so it can get hot in here. I wish air conditioning rose up through the floor like heat does. It would save me a fortune each summer. Alas, it does not.
10. What is the easiest recipe you know? Take keys. Add mask. Go to McDonald's.
11. Are you comfortable starting conversation with strangers? Depends on the situation. If it's work related, yes. If it's not, no.
12. Do you prefer quiet, or ambient noise when you relax? Ambient noise, please. I have tinnitus, so quiet makes me crazy.
13. Who is your most adventurous or exciting friend? Hmmm ... We're all pretty old, or staid, or broke these days.
14. What do you eat when you can’t decide what to eat? A bowl of cereal.
15. Do you have any funny pet stories? Here's Reynaldo's selfie. I think he showed great potential.



  1. I loved your recipe...that truly IS the easiest!

  2. Oh Rey! That is hilarious. I love critters, they are so funny. :) Loved your answers! Have a nice day. ♥

  3. #11--yes, that's what I meant to say!

  4. My nephew took his girlfriend and went to Gatlinburg for an elopement wedding. We threw them a party a few months later, which was a combination wedding and baby party. Don't think your 60-year-olds will be having that as an issue. But honestly, the hullabaloo around weddings astounds me. I had a wedding, but it was nothing like what people do today.

  5. The cat's selfie almost had me laughing so hard I nearly fell off my chair!
