So, you want to time travel? Better think about this one! Sunday Stealing!

Would You Rather Meme, part one

An Active MeMe Button is in the MeMe section of the side bar, folks.  Come join us! 

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!!!  

Stolen from: Sign Up Genius

1. Would you rather go into the past and meet your ancestors or go into the future and meet your great-great grandchildren?
I'm pretty sure there will be no great-great children to meet, so I'd want to meet my Paternal Native American and French ancestors on that side.  I'd also love to meet the Welsh, Irish, and Amish ancestors, and learn Gaelic and Olde German; that would be a hoot!

2. Would you rather have more time or more money? 
Time is worth a lot more than money at this point in my life.  But wait, later on we are given another chance at this!

3. Would you rather have a rewind button or a pause button on your life?
I would chose the pause button.  Rewinding changes too many variables but then I guess you could just hit it forever.  Hmmm.... hard choice!

4. Would you rather be able to talk with the animals or speak all foreign languages?
 Animal languages ARE foreign languages so I choose to talk (and emote) in all foreign languages.

5. Would you rather win the lottery or live twice as long? 
If I lived twice as long, I'd be 144 years old when I died.  Yuck!  I want the money and I want it now!
Lol... Dame lo Dinero!
The first thing I would do is start giving it all away..
"Money, you've got lots of friends
Crowding round the door
When you're gone, spending ends
They don't come no more
Rich relations give
Crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don't take too much
Mama may have,
Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own
That's got his own"
~Billie Holiday~ 
I think this lady looks adorable.  She's Ecuadorian 

Would you feel worse if no one showed up to your wedding or to your funeral? 
We didn't have a big wedding so no to that, but at my funeral, I'll be dead and how could anyone care who showed up, unless it was a secret love who flung themselves on the casket to the horror of the others there.  Hmm.  It's time to hire a mummer who will do just that! Great fun from beyond the Grave!

Would you rather be without internet for a week, or without your phone? 
My phone has the internet.  How can anyone live without the internet.  Oh, snap, I'd choose the phone because it has it's own little internal Giga thinga!

Would you rather meet George Washington, or the current President? 
George Washington, and I'd want to ask him about those terrible wooden teeth, and how he really caught his death, and why he gave advice to the new nation to not keep a standing army and how he feels now that we've ignored that advice.

Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? 
Another Hobson's choice.  Can we not pick something a little less vital, perhaps something like sex appeal? I can certainly live quite happily without that.

Would you rather work more hours per day, but fewer days or work fewer hours per day, but more days? 
The real question is, why does Europe have such better hours and benefits than the American Worker?  So my answer is, I'd rather be German, Scandinavian, or French.

Would you rather listen to music from the 70’s or music from today? 
 I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Rocker.  Having said that, I'll take anything but Justin Beiber or Rap.  You want to know is that yes or no to either.  I say, there is no choice.  

Would you rather become someone else or just stay you? 
I'll just stay me.  If a person switched then they would lose everything about themselves: spouses, children, family,  friends, loved ones, dogs, cats, memories?  If you change one thing you could change everything.  Not a good choice for me, for the most part, unless I was writing this from a prison cell. I would change having killed someone.....never did that one.  Hmmm...Tempting, but no.

Would you rather be Batman or Spiderman? 
Hobson's Choice or Morton's Fork question alert!  I'd rather be Catwoman, my Dear.  Ok, I'll play nice.  I'd rather be Batman because he can fly, and he has an amazing Valet/Butler who can COOK and clean the Batroom!

Would you rather be stuck on a broken ski lift or in a broken elevator? 
With all due respect, I'd rather be in a Zodiac on Lake Michigan in the winter if that's the only choice there was.  Well, I must admit that a stuck elevator would be less cold and breezy.  But what if it's crowded?  Oh I can't bear it.  I must go lie down now......*drama queen exits stage right* 

For your birthday, would you rather receive cash or gifts?
If handmade?  A gift.  DH could build me a patio for my birthday.  Otherwise I prefer cash..... Cha-ching!


  1. I love your answer to the question about the work hours. Excellent!

    1. Why thank ye, Miss CountryDew. The truth must be told about our pathetic Socialized State! Each person for themselves and let the devil take the hindermost!

  2. Hand made gifts certainly count!

    1. Yes they do KzG. I think they are the very best ones. Or money if time is short. ;-)

  3. Thank picture about Black Swan was laugh out loud funny!

    1. Bows to the Master teller of funny stories. :-)

  4. Thanks for a hearty laugh on this side of the pond. What a candid and humorous interview! :-)

    1. Karen, did you hear me scream that you are back on line. Squeeeeeeee! Could you tell I'd had my meds? hahahaha

  5. Zippi! You are on a roll today! I love it.

    On your answer to #1...your heritage is quite the international smorgasbord, isn't it? Did the Native American and Amish ancestors hook up? That would have been something.

    I wouldn't have pegged you for a Justin Beiber fan.

    1. Stacy, Sadly no, they did not hook up. That was the Spanish, and French who hooked up. The putative Amish, considering the names involved and the Old German that my grandpa and his sisters spoke, It was the Amish and the Cumberland Gab Hillbillies. McCoy's that is. And I'm one of the original "Just say no to Justin fan club members on the West Coast. I locked him up in the Rap Anti Audio Escape" music room as soon as I heard his voice.

  6. After I posted I started thinking I would probably have more to say to George Washington then I thought I would. Wouldn't he be amazed at the United States after only a mere 240 years?!

    1. Poor George would need a couple of stiff drinks I'm sure, and then we'd be able to talk about what's happened to his American Dream. He, another military man just like Ike, saw it coming like a Spanish Armada when speculators hopping all over the Halls of Congress and putting the pressure on to make and supply an army.

  7. I love Blood Sweat and Tears version of that song. Of course, thanks to you Zip, it's in my head now, where it is sure to stay for a few more hours.... :)

    1. Well, I must confess, sometimes my earworms end up here in an attempt to get them out of my head. And, Billy would be Proud! Blood Sweat and Tears is awesome!

  8. I love your comments! they are funny. I cannot wait to investigate the rest of your blog. Thank you.

    1. Welcome to my world after 9 pm. lol

      Hope you aren't too far right politically because being Quaker and practically a Socialist, I do Politics with Gusto and Verve!


I love comments. However, since I am not blogging as much anymore, I can no longer accept Anonymous comments. Thank you for understanding...
