Sunday Stealing

Stolen from Kwizgiver

And if you don't read Kwizgiver all the time, you should!

1. What is in the back seat of your car right now? Sorry, no car.

2. When was the last time you threw up? In September. I was still working from home and on the phone with my art director. We were on deadline, working furiously on a vanity project for our boss' boss that I knew in my heart was a waste of time. But a deadline is a deadline and a paycheck is paycheck, so I just put the art director on mute and brought her into the bathroom with me. The nausea was my body's reaction to the pain caused by a kidney stone. (This story makes me miss working less.)

3. What's your favorite word or phrase? I like saying "gubernatorial."

4. Name 3 people who made you smile today? Sorry, but it's early and I haven't encountered three people yet.

5. What were you doing at 8 am this morning? Watching the news

6. What were you doing 30 minutes ago? Watching the news (I'm a news junkie)

7. What would constitute the perfect evening for you? A nice dinner and a cocktail or two with good friends

8. Have you ever been to a strip club? In the 1980s, we went to a male strip club in Lake Geneva for a bachelorette party. More than the naked men, I remember that the maid of honor (who was in charge) neglected to make hotel reservations. So there we were,90 minutes from home and too drunk to drive with nowhere to sleep. So not only was that my only trip to a strip club, it was the only time I peed by the side of the road and spent the night in a car. (Ah, youth!)

9. What is the last thing you said aloud? Connie. (She's my cat.)

10. What is the best ice cream flavor? Mint chocolate chip

11. What was the last thing you had to drink? Water

12. What are you wearing right now? This t-shirt in 2XL. Yes, I am a vision of loveliness.

13. What was the last thing you ate? A chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing before bed last night.

14. Have you bought any new clothing items this week? Nope. I mean, when you have an "Anthony Rizzo is my captain forever" shirt, what else do you need?

15. When was the last time you ran? Oh, hell, I can't even recall!

He's a nice boy

My favorite-most ballplayer, Anthony Rizzo, told reporters he had "a slew" of family in the Bronx for the weekend. They're celebrating Mother's Day and Yankees Star Wars night, when the team gave away the Anthony Rizzo Mandolorian Bobblehead.

He responded in fine fashion. In 9 at bats, he got 5 hits and scored 4 runs -- including two homers. And this was against the powerhouse Tampa Bay Rays! During that two home run game, fans demanded a curtain call, which I gather is a big deal at Yankee Stadium.

From the New York Post

Every home run he hits is worth $3,300 in pledges from fans like me to his charity, which helps families facing pediatric cancer. 

Here's hoping his hot streak continues and he can deliver more hits and runs on Mother's Day. Everything about this makes me happy.
