Sunday Stealing

Stolen from SwapBot

*Have you tried anything new this year? Yoga. It's really made a positive difference.

*What would you do if you didn't have wifi for a week? I was without it for a couple days last month and it was harder than I anticipated. I didn't realize how often I say, "Alexa, what/when/where ...."

*Do you like summer, why or why not? Yes, I like it because it requires less thought; I don't have to consider which shoes, which boots, which jacket, which gloves, etc. And, of course, BASEBALL. No, I don't like it because hot weather is oppressive and makes people grumpy.

*What’s one restaurant that you like in your city? what food do they sell? I have spent a great deal of time here lately. I choose it because it's centrally located in terms of public transportation, the bartenders are generous, and while it's nominally an Irish bar, the menu is varied so all my friends can find something they like. Just yesterday, our table had nachos, charcuterie, and a burger.

Emerald Loop Bar & Grill

*Do you prefer digital book or real paper book? Real paper

*What’s one thing that you are interested to buy, but it’s a bit expensive, so you haven’t bought yet? There are some spa services I would love to indulge in, but there's not much budge in my budget right now.

*What tea brands do you like? Celestial Seasonings

*What’s one food that you can binge eating a lot? Pizza! Just about any Italian, really.

*Write one random thing that happened to you this month. I went to Wendy's for the first time in ages. There was a flash summer storm and I didn't have an umbrella so I ducked in to eat lunch and wait for the skies to clear. The burger was fine, the fries were bleh, and I'm glad I always have a book in my purse. (Maybe I should throw an umbrella in there, too.)

*How many long-term penpals do you have right now? (people who pen pal with you for more than 3 years) I suppose my Cousin Rose, though I don't think of her as a pen pal. I've been writing to her since I learned to write, which is waaaaay longer than three years.

*If you own a small food trailer, what food do you want to sell? I wouldn't do this. I generally don't trust the food available from the truck or cart (I've never seen a "food trailer"). 

*What’s one handmade gift that you received and really liked? Nothing comes to mind (at least since my niece and nephew graduated from grade school).

*What’s your ideal Saturday like? Yesterday was good. Lunch with friends (at the restaurant shown above) and home in time to watch the Cubs Kyle Hendricks pitch a masterpiece. 

*What things do you like to buy on Etsy? Just the right gift.

*What kind asian food do you like? Crab rangoon is my favorite! I also tend to like the pork dishes.
