Funky Twenty-five

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 the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's meme in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
Cheers to all of us thieves!!!

Funky Twenty-Five Meme

Stolen from: The now-defunct Tense Teacher


1. Most unflattering hairstyle you ever had? What made it so unflattering? 
A. An Accidental Afro.  The solution was left on my hair too long at a parlor and I had an afro.  This was when I was a Sophomore in High School.  No one, including me, liked it, so in about 3 months I got it cut into a pixie.  I've hardly trusted anyone with my hair since.  I cut it myself.

2. Favorite movie(s) that were made in the 90's? 
A.  My favorites are "Cold Comfort Farm", "Milagro Beanfield War", and "Enchanted April".

3. Do you rent movies? If so, from where?
A. and the answer is, The Big Red Envelope that flies into the mailbox a couple times a month.

4. Do you like cookies better when they're just out of the oven or after they've cooled? 
A. Right out of the oven.  Cookies cool off?

5. Do you still talk to the person who gave you your first kiss?
A. Oh yes!  We still kiss, too.  Sorta cool.  That doesn't mean we can't get into a fight over how to load a dishwasher.

6. Did you go to pre-school? If so, what was the name of it? 
A. No preschool other than my drill sargeant father teaching me my alphabet, or to read at three, and long division when I was barely four.  Such a jerk.  Learning wasn't fun, until I discovered library cards.  Buzanga!

7. How do you take your coffee?
 A. Light and sweet.

8. Do you like fuzzy things? 
A. I love fuzzy things, things with scales and things with feathers.  I like spiders too.  Fuzzy Spiders are even better.

9. Favorite kind of chocolate? 
A. Dark Truffle bars from TJ's.

10. Are you more optimistic or pessimistic? 
A. I am an optimist but I'm a depressed optimist.  That's what I told my doctor.  Didn't we answer this one?  hehehe
11. What about peopleofwalmart.com? Do you think the site is mean, funny, or both? 
A.  Heck I haven't seen it, but it doesn't sound very nice.

12. Do you like fat sandwiches? If so, what does your favorite one have on it?

A. Probably one in Paris.

14. Last time you got a haircut? Do you need one? 
A.  My hair is long and I wear it up.  I don't need a hair cut.  I'm done cutting my hair for awhile.  My best arm can't get into those contortions anymore.

A. Floral or stripes.

16. What's your age backwards? 
A.Tirdnathredlo

A. Not usually.  I do a lot of typos in a survey.  Sometimes I don't even answer the questions properly.

18. When was your last vacation? Did you go someplace special? 
A. Yes, we did.  Our last vacation was in November when we camped out along the cliffs on the coast.  And, while the kids and their dad hiked all over the half acre, I scored three life birds from the back window of the RV.  They had more fun but I bagged the birds.

19. What's your favorite kind of pancakes? 
A.  Buckwheat.
20. Do you like movies with computer graphics, like Avatar? 
A. Yes, they are beautiful works of art!

21. Do you know how to sew? 
A. Yes, I've sewn my entire conscious life.  First with my grandmother guiding my hands I learned the machine at almost four.  Then, when we got back to California, my mother took over and taught me embroidery.
22. Are you good at wrapping gifts? 
A. I love to wrap fancy boxes not just for presents.
