Sunday stealing, garage sale?

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!!!  

I can't figure it what this has to do with garage saves, nut what the heck.  I can't seep anyway

Garage Sale Meme

Stolen from: Love me some surveys

Is your phone right next to you, or at least close by? 
No, it sleeps on its charger at night.  I wish I could stick my plug in a socket and sleep.  Maybe someday that will be what humans do, you never know.  We'll have tails again.  How fun is that?

What windows or tabs are open on your computer right now? 
Only this one is open.  

Is your phone a touch screen? 
Yes, and I like that you can train it.  I wonder if you can train it to scream and then say, " If you touch me there again I will call the cops!"  

Who is the last person to call you? 
My sister who promptly told me we could now start texting.  

What was the last movie you watched? 
"A Room With a View", in fact I watched it two days in a row because a sneaky little one hour nap caught me unawares the first time I tried to watch it.  

What are you doing tomorrow? 

Sewing the rest of the sweater together and locating the various parts of the sweater stretcher

Are you in a good mood? 
No.  I'm not looking forward to trying to find all the sweater stretcher.  It's a chore and a half finding things that have been moved out of the place they "lived in" for a quarter of a century to somewhere only God knows about.  

Do you think exes can remain friends? 
That depends on the individuals involved.

Are you starting to realize anything? 
Yes.  Some very big "anythings"  actually,  1.The iPad makes a very bad substitute for a full on laptop, and 2. It's raining outside!  After ZERO rain in February we are getting a little bit of  rain.  3. I'm going to be sad for a long time.  That's monumental.  

Do you follow rules or break them? 
Usually, in this long life, I keep it to myself but if I think a rule (society more) is stupid, I quietly ignore it.
Are you currently looking forward to anything? 
Well, yes but you didn't say what form that "looking forward to" was occurring, but I'd say I'm looking forward with an element of dread.

Could you go a day without eating? 
Two years ago I did.  It was five days actually, but I was on an antibiotic drip.

How many bracelets do you have on your wrists right now?  
None.  I used to love them but now they drive me batty.  

Do you scream stuff out the car window? 
No but I do scream with the car windows up and the radio blaring.

Do you have reason to smile right now? 
We sent flowers yesterday and the recipient texted back with a little ascii smile.  That makes me smile.

What do you do when you need to relax? 
Remember that cute poster of an Orangutan?  "Sometimes I sits and thinks and sometimes I just Sits."  That's what I do to relax.

What are you listening to right now? 
Breakfast!  Yay!  But really, I'm listening to the blessing of rain in a desert.

What’s your greatest fear? 
I am facing it, running around it with a butcher knife and looking for soft spots.

Do you have a best friend? 
My best friend has passed away.

Are you afraid of death? 
Do you open up to people easily? 
Yes, they are my brothers and sisters.

Has anyone upset you in the last week? 
Actually a preternatural calm has overtaken me.

What’s your favorite drink? 
I favor tea.

What are you craving? 
To see my girls.

How did you sleep last night? 
Well enough, and had a nice dream, too.  I dreamt that we lived in a Rockhound colony, and people would just give you big yard rocks that you admired.  I woke up just as I was carrying away a huge piece of peacock stone that a neighbor had just given to me.  The neighbor was a rockhound we once knew.

Would you ever consider turning your house into a B and B
No, but if I were younger I'd do house trading.

What was the first thing you ate today? 
I haven't eaten today, yet.

Do you have anything more important you should be doing right now? 
No, I'm turning into a big layabout.  But later on I will figure out why the sleeves don't fit on a sweater. Grrrr

Have you ever eaten tofu, and if so, did you enjoy it? 
I eat it all the time and like it.

What was the last type of meat you ate? 
Some chicken sausage from a farm that raises only humanely raised meat.  I have to eat it or I wouldn't.

What color is your toothpaste? 
I have two - one is green and the other is a grey gel.

Have you taken any medication today? Do you sell medicine at a garage sale? 

Have you ever inhaled helium? 
Yes, and as fun as it is, you have to remember you can pass out if you do that too long.  I didn't, and then a scoldy schoolmarm came by and called me stupid for doing such a thing around impressionable children.  I almost got out me six shooter and nailed her,but then remembered that I  wasn't a real sheriff.  This really happened I kid you not.

Have you set an alarm today? 
There's one every day.

Do you keep up-to-date with current news and events?  
Only if it rises up and snatches me bald, do I follow news.

Have you asked someone for advice today? 
Only the invisible man.

What color is your shampoo? 
I'm a no poo kinda gal, and my conditioner is pale green.  Am I selling you this at the garage sale?  No.
Have you watched more than an hour of TV today? 
No, i'm a hidebound TV hater.

Ever wake up early on Saturdays to go Garage Sale shopping?
Not any more.  I HAVE garage sales now.


  1. I am sorry you are going to be sad for a long time. It is a shame that cyberhugs really don't help much, but maybe the thought counts.

  2. Thoughts are actually pretty powerful. Thank you, CountryDew, for the thoughts and cyber hugs,too. :-)

  3. Right- I've collected so much of other people's stuff (a lot of inherited albeit) that I need to have the garage sale.
    How long was this thing this week anyway? :)

    1. That's what happened to me in a way. Though my mother had few things of value, enough came over to me in the way of things from my grandparents, et al, and therefore a great sentimental treasure.
      And this meme didn't seem to have much to do with garage sales did it? ;)

  4. A preternatural calm....the one before the storm?
    I try very hard to NOT have garage sales. I like going to them, but we don't seem to have much success with the selling these days. Guess we have the wrong kind of junk or something. LOL

    1. It's Mysterious, like I've finally accepted whatever is to come, Stacy.
      By the way, I can't post on your blog unless I'm on the laptop so bear with me on that. I really enjoy reading yours.
      Personally, I think Garage sales are just turning into scavenger hunts for collectors hoping to make a killing, so I don't have them anymore. I'd rather try Craig's list or eBay myself and donate to charities that don't get much attention. Children's hosital gets so much stuff that they has two containers full of brand new clothing sitting out in the rain for months. Fast Fashion donations and write offs I imagine.

  5. Oh man, I hate looking for something I've "put away" from where it has lived forever. Gah.

    More than that, though, I hate to hear sad news. Cyberhugs from me, and may you find many soft-spots in your fear and soon!

    1. Thank you, Cat.
      And yes,alas, the brain will not jump over those age old synapses and reveal a THING about where an item has got to! Grrrr!

  6. I do not like looking for things and like it even less when it is going to be a total chore to find whatever I am looking for.

    Thank you for visiting my blog.

    1. Anytime, Shannon, and thanks for visiting here.
      The hunt goes on but it's narrowed down a bit.
