Sunday Stealing

  Come join in!

The What's What Meme
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme.
Let's go!!!

The What's What Meme

What is on your bed right now?  (Had to go look.)  There is a box of tissue, an ad for JoAnne's, and there is a long, thick sock that is used to wrap up the camera.  I hit upon this safety wrappage while on vacation.

What’s your favorite word or phrase?  Something my big brother J used to say.  "Holy Criminy!" Me?  I'd say something else.

What is the best ice cream flavor?   My favorite is Butter Pecan which, sadly, I can no longer eat ice cream.

Did you wake up smiling this morning?
  Yes, because of a dream that I was, in real life, a character from a game who was throwing up some sort of white substance.  I blame "Fringe" for that. 

Is there something in your life you used to have, and now miss?  I  had a used Motobacane bike that I loved.   This was back when the frames were aluminum.  Also, I didn't have Rams, I had Straights (handle bars). 

I had it for nearly 40 years, ten years after I was no longer able to ride. 

What major company would you like to work for?   Honestly, none that I can think of.  I'd like to be a school marm, thank you very much.  Special Ed.  That's where I was headed when the news came that I was preggers again.  It just wasn't meant to be but life turned out pretty darn OK by me.

What time do you wake up on a typical morning?  I go to sleep very late so I wake up anywhere from 6:30 to 9 am.  There, that's about a 2 and a half hour window.  When I get OUT of bed depends on what we have to do that day.

What holiday makes you sad?   I'm pragmatic.  I don't let the holidays get me down.  They are only one day of the year.  This didn't used to be so, but it is now.  I decorate even though no one else is going to see it, unless I plaster it on the blog.  Blogging saves the day!

Where does a good night’s sleep rank on your priorities?  It is the single most important predictor of what the next day will be like.  I'd say it's a top priority.  I spent so many years not sleeping more than 5 hours, and lots of the time less, that I don't want to ever do that again.

One song that makes you cry?   "Landslide".  It is the saddest song I know.  

 How old was your mom when she had you?   Mom was 21.

When is the last time you went to the beach?  Last Night.  We were there for dinner.  

The fog came in and gave us a really nice show.  Wanna see?  This was taken at the Peace Park end of the Island, looking across the water at the berths across the harbor.

What is the most random object around you?   A can of Avon "Wishing" perfumed talc.  It was from when I was sorting some things and researching the web.

 What is your favorite sushi?  Vegan California Rolls recipe.    I love these things - both kinds!  Inside out or like the one below. 

Picture is From Vegannews.com

What food do you find disgusting?  I could not force myself to knowingly eat an insect, alive or dead, nor any other creature that might be still alive.

If you could have any type of dog in the world, what would it be?  It would be "Small".  Any small dog will do, any breed or mix of small.  At 16 pounds W is pushing the limits but we love him anyway.   I like poodle mixes because of their curly hairiness.

Yes, you are, yet again, forced to see him.

What was the last meal that you made for yourself?  I usually make my own lunch which is fruit and some sort of grain filled thing (bread, cracker, chip)

Is the hard drive on your computer full or getting close to being full?  Nope.

Are there any songs that you prefer the acoustic version over the regular version?  Are you speaking of, say, "Live versus recordings"?    I prefer live music for any instrument/band/orchestra/quintet, etc, etc,  but it's not very practical. 


  1. Ugh! I didn't think of insects. I would have to be very desperate to eat one.

  2. That is one adorable dog!

  3. Your dog is ADORABLE!!!

  4. Your dog is so cute! And he looks pretty comfy in that picture. I like the song Landslide too. Have a great week!

  5. Landslide makes me sad, too. I have asked that that song be played at my funeral.


I love comments. Sorry about the mods. If you visit and leave me a comment, I will be sure to give you a visit and let you know I appreciated it.

Wishing you " ♥A Sufficiency of all good things♥."
