Sunday Stealing, Ask me, Ask me. Whatchawanna know? Meme

April 9, 2016

Ask, Ask, Ask Meme

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!!!  

Ask Ask Ask Meme

Stolen from: i take surveys

1 -If you were stranded on an island, who do you wish to be with?
Well, that's simple enough.  I want my DH and his McGyver knife.  Barring that, I'll take a fisherwoman from New Guinea, with skills.

2 - What do you feel right now?
Crazy, I feel absolutely wacko.

3 - What chocolate is your favorite?
The dark kind

4 - Why did you create a blog account?
To share my knitting with the world.  Buhahahaha!  

5 - Who is your favorite blogger?
He's a criminal right now.

6 - When was the last time you cried? Why?
Crying's good for you.  So I do it every day.  

7 - Who is your best friend?
Mr. Z.

8 - What kind of music do you listen to?
Everything, except Rap.  It's not music to my ears.  I hate it, and feel like a trapped animal if it's on anywhere within 1875 feet of me.  Or, if I can hear it.

9 - Do you have troubles sleeping at night? 
Last night I went to sleep after 3 am.  But I got to sleep in to 8:30 so it was cool.  I usually sleep pretty well, with an occasional anomaly. 

10 - What do you prefer, jeans or shorts?
When?  Wet season or Dry, if it's 68 degrees out, I'm wearing fleece.

11 - Did you try to change for a person?
After being (with my little brothers - one of whom died from it) beaten into submission by a monster, I tried to change for my own kids.  The cracks in my persona are only held together by a thin layer of Elmer's glue.  But over the years because I wanted to be the person I was before it all went pear shaped, and for my family, those cracks are no longer visible.

12 - Are you in a good or bad mood? 
My mood-o-meter reads, "Feisty",  and a few degrees above "stormy seas".  I don't know if that's good or bad.  I suspect it is A-OK for this time of life.

13 - Name someone you can’t live without.
Mr. Z. and my daughters.

14 - Do you have a grudge against anyone? 
No, not anymore.  I may tell it like it is, but I hold no grudge.  I don't want another little child to suffer.  Karma, you know?

15 - Are you a crybaby?
Criminy.  I cry every day.  I'm an Environmentalist, and I can (and do) read.

16 - When people praise you for your looks, what feature do they praise?
Not exactly praise now.  But that would be my face.  It's a good thing, too, because the rest of me is just way ahead of the face, age-wise.

17 - What hair color do you prefer?
Is this a trick question?  I like my silvery gray hair with black mixed in it.  

18 - If you can change anything about yourself, what is it?
I actually can change something about myself?  Ok, then, I'd be as rich as a Bill Gates!

19 - Can you live without internet?   
If I'm with the kids, yes.

20 - Have you ever experienced being hysterical?
No, even though I joke about it from time to time I only freak out after the fact.  But that's probably what hysterical means, isn't it.  So, then it would be a "yes", N'est Pa?

21 - Did you have an accident last year?
Nope; happily, I haven't tried to "fly" out of anymore flower beds in several years.

22 - What are you thinking right now?
I'm thinking, "Will this thing ever end?".

23 - Have you been hurt so bad that you can’t find words to explain how you feel?
I can always find words.  They might be subject to censure, but I can find words.

24 - Do you have trust issues?
I don't have a trust, and if I did, it would have been all spent by now on the kids and the causes.
Come to think of it, that MIGHT be an issue with a trust.  I hope that's what you meant by trust issues.  
Oh!  No, I don't have issues with trust, either.  I trust everyone until I'm pulling the proverbial Knife out of my back.  Does that say anything about my Gullibility?  LOTS!

25 - Who’s the person who first comes to your mind when someone mentions “love”?
What is this obsession with a single person?  I'm a pack person.  

The whole human race, though they do not know it, or like to admit it, is a single Pack.  God made us this way.  That "still small voice" thing?  It's in every human and every other animal heart on the planet.  "I shall instruct my Ravens to feed you" ?  This is in the Plants, too. Jesus, withering a poor innocent plant that wouldn't bring forth fruit out of season.  Poor thing!

 It's in the planet!  "The very rocks and the stones would cry out"?  The Earth will cry out?  But that's just me.  So, I pick, "My Pack".   After all, a man from Canada leaves home to work in, say, Burundi, and a woman leaves home in Peru, to work in Burundi.  They meet, love and marry and have offspring.  There now are happy people in Peru and Canada who share, and have, new family members!  That's Love!  Sort of fun!  And magical.

26 - Do you believe in the phrase “If it’s meant to be, it will be”?
Not to the extent that people should not take the first boat that comes by to pluck them off a roof in a flood, no.

27 - Do you believe in destiny?
I believe in Karma but I know that there are Karmic Accidents, too.  There's just too many of us for other people to not impact the innocents.  So, I try to be as kind as possible.  It's the only way to be.  Everyone is carrying a burden, they say.  Lending a helping hand is not a bad policy in the long run.

28 - How do you look right now?

29 - Did you ever feel like you’re not good enough?
 Ha!  I KNOW I'm not good enough.  But that's never stopped me.  A person can always learn.

30 - Favorite city?
I'll take two; they're small:

I love Santa Cruz for a small city where residents are friendly and try to take care of each other in a cruel world.  

And I love San Francisco for it's stunningly beautiful jewel like setting.  And for the Botanical Gardens and Museums.  Go when it isn't crowded, in the Fall when the weather is the best.  It's just the best.  

Travel Light and travel often.  


  1. Someone else loves my city by the bay!

    1. Yes, I love it and so does the rest of our family. We go there whenever we are up in Central Cal, visiting, and they go much more than we can. It's a beautiful place!

  2. aww, very thoughtful and insightful answers

    1. A www, thank you, Jennifer.
      The weekly memes keep me sane and connected to real people, even when I look like a hag and don't get dressed some days until well after Noon.

  3. Laughing....you really are in a silly mood today, aren't you? I love it!

    I didn't think of it when I answered, but I, too, tried to be different from what I was raised with for my kids. It was not like yours, but rather emotional. I suppose I was sometimes successful, sometimes not.

    1. Hi Stacy, and thanks for reading. :-)
      As usual, I tried to leave a comment on your blog but ended up sending you a message from your contact me button.
      I'm going to be silly the rest of my life I reckon, and it's actually more "me" . I like to live on the lighter side of life whenever possible because there's always something coming to get you from the Heavies, and when it steps on you, you can't always wiggle out. ;-)

  4. What's wrong with feeling wacko? Sometimes you just have to roll with stuff.

    1. Wacho is the new normal. Heehee. I'll be here for a good while. But right now I think I'll go roll down a hill as fast as I can go... Wheeeeeee!

  7. I loved all of this! Your writing today cracked me up. I like it when a good sense of humor comes through!!

    1. Why thank you, Paula. Seeing as how some people have offered to hang me by the neck until I cheer up, I've decided to tread on the bright side of life for as long as possible. I'm fun loving by nature, having got that from Grandpa and Mom, so it's time for a second childhood, so to speak.

  8. Loved the thing about "the pack." Can I be part of your pack?

    1. Of Course you can be, CountryDew! I'm delighted that you want to!
      In fact, everyone who reads this is invited as well!
      Come on down and join the pack!

  9. pARt of your pack... I want to be there TOO!!! You are so precious! Have a great week!!

    1. Alrighty, Maire! Yip yip Yawooooooo! Excellent! Thanks so much, and you have a great week too!
