Why Do You Want To Know That Meme, part four

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!!!

Why Do You Want To Know That Meme, part four

Stolen from: Love me some surveys

 Nosy Parker alert!  Chatty Kathy alert!

76. What is the best advice you’ve ever been given? 
"This too shall pass".  Since it had gone on for 6 years of misery,  I didn't believe it at the time, but it did, indeed, pass in a couple more years.

77. Is it easier to forgive or forget? 
It's SO much easier to forgive than to forget.

78. First mobile phone? 
A  Nokia phone.  All talk and no text.  Sad to think of it.  I liked that little phone.

79. Strangest dream? 
Probably the circus dream I had when I was four.  It was gorgeous, with iridescent clothing on the horse back riders who actually didn't ride horses but deer who were also iridescent, and whose horns were twinkling in all the colors of the rainbow.  A long line of them walked past me as I awoke.
80. Best dream? 
I think it was about two little babies that were in a shallow hole in the ground.  I'd been told by someone to go look under the blanket and I would see two white kittens.  When I went there and lifted the blanket, there were actually two little human babies, and they were laughing up at me.  This was quite some time before the twins were born because I remember telling a psychologist about the dream during my pregnancy.  He was such a nice man.  I can still remember him.  He was a very kind person, and I hope he had a very nice life, too.  

81. Who is the smartest person you know? 
The smartest person I know OF is Noam Chomsky.  He ranks right up there with Einstein. 
Until you know someone who is a genius, you can't begin to understand how fast they think things through.  It's like Lightning!

82. Who is the prettiest person on you know? 
This is a question fraught with danger.  I know a lot of pretty people.  I'll take the 5th. ;o)

83. Do you miss anyone right now? 
I miss my mother.  She was one of the world's calmest souls.  She was very much a sage sort of mentality- quiet and muse like.  She was probably an old soul.

84. Who do you love? Why? 
Everyone.  Because it's the only way this tragic world can get any better. I just wish everyone could feel all the love that people send their way through the "inner most ether", and know that it's real.  It would make their lives infinitely better.

85. Do you like sharing? 
Sharing is what humans do the best.  When they do it.  Yes, I like it.  Every good thing that a person can think of involves some level of sharing.

86. What was the last picture you took with your phone? 
Earlier today: The last tomato of the season.  I thought it was ridiculously cute.

87. Is there a reason behind everything that happens? 
Yes, and we actually live in a holodeck and there are many separate realities -one of the reasons that Jesus could walk through a closed door.  It's not done with mirrors.

88. Favorite genre of music? 
Tuvan throat singing.  Hahaha  But, really, I DO like everything but rap, even like hip hop.

89. If you had one word to describe yourself, what would it be? 
90. Describe your life in 5 words. 
Really, five words?  I feel like a survivor.  I feel blessed, that humbles me, two more would be Human, and grateful for everything.

91. Craziest thing you’ve ever done? 
One year, my Uni Roomie and her sister, who had the car, came to pick me up in my city which was about 70 miles inland from Venice.  Well, we ran out of gas in a very bad place on the way back to their house.  So, we thought for about five seconds, then jumped a freeway fence, ran screaming through a freeway underpass, and stuffed a phone booth with our bodies, jamming the door, and called the Operator to tell her we'd run out of gas in East L.A.  

She sent Angels of Mercy- the Highway Patrol- who got gas for us, and drove us back to the car, put it in the tank, and wished us well as we drove away, waving and blowing kisses to them.  Great Guys and fabulous Telephone Operator!  Our parents never knew I reckon.  I know mine never did!

92. First three songs in your favorite playlist? 
Ottmar Leibert: this whole album.  But this first song on it, well, it just puts me into a calm place, which I greatly need atm!  The second one finishes me off and by the time the third one rolls up if I'm not asleep, I go eat a piece of chocolate. ;o)  Sorry, the poster seems to have inserted an ad between each song.  What a jerky thing to do.  If I actually had the skills, I'd put my albums up there with NO ads whatsoever.  

93. Are you more creative or logical? 
Mr.Z would argue but I think I'm creatively logical.

94. Would you rather lie or hurt someone with the truth? 
Firstly, I'd be sure it wasn't just my opinion but actually the truth.  Then, I probably would lie to spare them hurt, if it was not dangerous to them to do so.

95. What are you most proud of? 
Being brutally honest?  heehee

96. What personality trait do you admire in other people? 
I admire Grit!  Meaning, I suppose, gentle bravery.  Or, the tough kind, to tell the truth.  

97. When you imagine yourself as really, really relaxed and happy, what are you doing? 
Do you mean without the aid of a couple of glasses of port?  Hmmm.. I am looking out across the vast ocean and seeing the sun set or rise, depending on the locale.  There are people around looking out at the sunset, and we all start to sing gently, the same magical tune, and it's not Kumbaya.

98. How do you usually start a conversation?  I usually say, "Hi, I'm XYZ, pleased to meet you", and hope it turns out to be true.  

Alternative openers are: "If you don't mind talking about it, what happened to your face?"  "I don't even know why I'm here... how about you?"  Or how about, "I couldn't help overhearing that you........". 

99. What is the best news you could hear right now?
That the kids possessed the winning ticket for the big lotto prize.
I could stop worrying so much about, well, all the bad news and everything.  The stock market, or some jerk trying to assassinate someone hugely important or something.  Sometimes I'm way out there trying to come in from the cold.


  1. Ha,ha! You are really on a roll today, Zippi. I enjoyed all your answers and I like eccentricity in a person. Fun reference to the Princess Bride. :) Have a great week!

    1. Glad you liked the answers. Also I've heard that eccentricity gets worse as a person ages. I intend to be a thoroughly Scatty old lady. Isn't inigo a kick?

      Hope you got rested up on the long MLK weekend, and the weather's not too wicked this week.

  2. Love your answers! And I haven't listened to Ottmar Leibert in a very, very long time--thanks for the link!

    1. Thanks, KG, and hope you enjoyed you Ottmar CDs this weekend. Another amazing Flamenco player is Charo. She's incredibly good.

  3. I think that darn lottery messed with too many of us. How dare they not share the haul with us!

    1. Yes Harriet, I agree, those bums is right! And, the whole thing really messed with the school systems of the country, too!

  4. Ha. I said I was logically creative - the reverse of you. Somehow that does not surprise me.

    1. Me, either, CountryDew. I'm a lot less logical than most. Heehee

  5. Loved your answers. I also said winning the lotto but, someone in California won that money wasn't me. Hope you have a wonderful day.

    1. Darn! I was hoping it was someone we knew, I mean this group en toto. Maybe we could start a buying block or something. *wink*
      Have a great rest of the week!

  6. OK, true confessions: when I read the part of running out of gas east of Venice, I was thinking, "Oh, so Croatia?" and then ended up thoroughly confused about how you got to East L.A. or what that meant in an Italian context! lol

    Great story. Your parents probably knew more about your shenanigans than you knew. I know I know more about *my* son's than he's aware of.

    1. That is hilarious but perfectly logically creative, given the first thoughts you had. After all, who thinks of Venice, California at all unless they live in SoCal? Oh yes, my mother probably knew. The paternal unit probably didn't get a whiff or I'd have heard no end of it. Mothers are just so much more intuitive.

  7. #98 is ENTIRELY too forward for me!

    1. Oh yes, Bev. Me too! I was joking around a bit.
      You have a great week!

  8. aw what a cute tomato :) and wow, what a dream. sometimes i dream things and i think how strange and then a bit later i see that it was actually prophesizing something. kinda spooky!

  9. It is cute, isn't it. We'll honor it by adding it to the soup.
    Oooo, prophetic dreams. It means there is more to the human brain than meets the eye, a good thing. So far science hasn't quite figured it out, and I hope they never do, frankly.
    Have a great weekend!
