Sunday Stealing just about anything not nailed down. Oh wait, that isn't what we really do...

January 23, 2016

Feisty Twenty-five- this link takes you to Sunday Stealing, so You can play along, too!

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!!!

Feisty Twenty-five

Stolen from: Love me some surveys

1. Do you like to see it snowing outside?
Sure, if it's just a little flurry.  We live in a climate where any great amount of snow would freeze all the plants.

2. Do you tell your family you love them enough?
No.  You can never say that enough to people.  Well you can, but you know what I mean.

3. Do you like getting jewelry or do you not wear any?
I like to make jewelry in fact I love it.  
Now that I'm selling the two casters, I will likely still forge,  or maybe just buy blanks and embellish them, if I was really interested in doing it.  I have rather old hands...fingers... wrists which  I prefer to save for holding knitting needles and sewing darling little dollies for fun and to give to causes to raffle off for their fund raisers.  

4. Do you watch a lot of NFL football?
Not any more.

5. Have you ever used the word ‘lame’?
Of course.  Usually in reference to myself and the astounding ability my brain has to remember a word for decades that it will forget the moment it is to be "immortalized" in a sentence in this blog.  Grrrr.

6. Are you/Were you in a band? If so, what was your band name?
I was never in a band.  I'm sort of glad because I saw what that life did to some of my friends.  

7. When is the last time you went to the doctor?
Earlier this month.

8. Do you own any shirts with a peace symbol on it?
Of course.  I like that Peace Symbol.  I have a flag with it on it.  I can't fly it here but what the H.  It flies in my heart.

9. Would you ever go to Japan?
I won't go anywhere where the flight time exceeds 2 hours.  In a transporter, I'd love to go to Japan.  I would go EVERYWHERE in a transporter.  Well, on earth.  I'm not interested in interstellar space trips.  I'll save that for when I'm ethereal, if it happens.

11. What was the last thing you went to Walmart for?
I don't shop at Walmart.  I know people who have to because they are so poor, and my heart goes out to them.

12. Ever gotten in a car accident?
Yes, one was pretty terrible, and I got hurt.  I was 13.

13. Have you ever been in a choir?
Yes, I sang in a choir from grade school up until I graduated from high school.

14. Do you like the color of your eyes? If not, what color would you want them?
Yes, but maybe I'd like aqua colored eyes, just for the shock value.

15. When was the last time you went ice skating?
I never got to ice skate once I left Ohio.  I almost got to when the House of  Ice moved closer to where we were moving, but, alas.   Once the twins were born, I never got to put my feet up until I went to bed, and ice skating just wasn't an option anymore.

16. Do you like to brush your teeth?
Yes.  Happily, teeth are not something I lost in car accidents or from cavities.  I'm lucky and I know it.
17. Have you ever had a surgery?
18. Do you look older or younger than you actually are?
Younger.  Other people besides Mr.Z say so.  But, tbh, inside I'm creakingly old.  Sheesh!  I Sooooo need a long winter's nap I tell ya...  I could do the Bear thing.  My totem, which I've seen in visions, is a bear called a Spirit Bear, if my friend G is still reading here.  I told him about it once.  It's a strawberry blonde bear, and I finally saw it in a nature show a couple nights ago.  Lovely little, very rare bear.

19. When is the next time you’ll be up on stage?
There's never going to be a next time.

20. Where did you spend your last birthday?
Happily, I was at home, where I could do what I liked, which is watch Netflix!

21. What is the last show that you watched a full episode of?
We are watching a couple of thirty somethings in their quest to visit every national park in the United States.  This is something we both would love to do, too.

22. Do you know anyone who lives in Utah?
Gee, I don't think so.  We have been to a ski condo in Parks which was fun.  It was with a bunch of kids half our age who went for the skiing.  Mr.Z skis.  I do not.  I kept one of them company after she hurt her knee very badly on almost the first day.  We had fun chatting and watching the balloons almost land on the roof of the condo!  Later, we went to the tiny refirbed mining town and I bought some very plain dichroic glass earrings from Nancy Geddes who has come a long, long way since those first little squares.  

23. Is there anything you need to work on doing soon?
I have to get rid of a lot of stuff so that I can make dolls, small quilts, knit, make my glass jewelry and such again.  That's all the stuff I want to do.  Getting the energy to do it hasn't been easy.

24. Do your feelings get hurt easily?
Not anymore.  It's not worth losing a minute of precious time getting my feelings hurt.  I wan't to make things and love people.  The rest is a waste of time.  The people who cause all the misery in the world, creating situations that just ruin it for every other living thing and radicalizing whole nations of people they decide have something worth taking from them are just not going to change because I deplore them.  Are they?

25. Do you, or do you know someone who has taken karate lessons?

26. Were you ever a boy or girl scout?
I went all the way through scouting and was, for a short time, a co-leader of a Brownie troop.  I wouldn't have liked Boy Scouting but I certainly loved the Girl Scouts.  


  1. Do you ever post pictures of your jewelry and other crafts, Zippi? I would love to see them!

    1. I have, Stacy. Ill try to find it for you and give all the posts a tag. Have a lovely Sunday.

  2. I just LOVE you !! Love Love Love you!!! xo

    1. I love you too! Xxox! You have a lovely week, Mair. Do as many fun things as you can. Healing wishes to you and your hubby!

  3. I'll have to Google the show you were watching, it sounds like something I'd like!

    1. I tried to find it through Google but no luck. Too low for their merchandising radar maybe. It's called, "Rock the Park". We love it, a tiny bit campy, no pun intended.

  4. Hmmm...did this post? I'm with you on WalMart. I think I shopped there once, a very long time ago. Why can't you fly a peace flag? (against the rules, or against the wishes of your neighbors?) I ussed to wear a lot of jewelry (mostly earrings) because I had a friend who made them, but once the granddaughters gave me earrings, I just wear those and never take them out.

    1. Hi Bev. It's the neighbors. I never dreamed we'd be here this long. I'd never do it again, even if it cost me all my hair. I have only one friend in it. The kids had only one, too. It was worse for them, sweet little girls. Such is life... Meh! :-)

      I love that you wear your granddaughters' gift earrings always. That is so sweet!

  5. Peace signs, yay. My totem is the white tail deer.

    1. Totems are good for the heart, as are peace signs. The white tail is a great totem!
      Peace signs remind me of both the possible and the near past, when the American people came together and stopped a war that politicians didn't have the sense to stay out of.

  6. We have a really nice and new(er) Walmart here. I like to go there before 8 am so that I can have the store to myself

    1. That's what my brother in law does. Great plan! :-)
      We shopped there way back when they opened.

    2. haha, that's what i do! if i go to walmart, i have to go before 8 (more like 6ish) so i can avoid the crowds! ours is the newest one on the island, so it's a nice place to go, and, yes, nice on the wallet!

      and i am so with you with the flying thing. if i could use a transporter, man, there'd be no stopping the places i'd visit. otherwise, flying is the pits! :P

      i love, love, love your answer to #24--"make things and love people." gosh, i wish i could be as strong as you are!

    3. Hi lia, absolutely, "go early to Walmart" wins the day. Yes!
      And, about #24, I'm an old lady and really wish I'd not wasted so much time being worried about what people thought. It wasn't worth it. My kids would have been happier, for one thing.
      Wouldn't a transporter would be lovely? On a personal level, M.Z. And I would never have to drive through big cities to go see our girls. Right now I'm wishing transporters actually existed.


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.
