Shannon's Moment Meme, Part Two
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes (or surveys) 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 among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. When possible, we contact the owner of the blog where we stole the post. 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.
We found this gem when a few weeks ago we asked for memes to steal. Shannon W (my friend and the author of Moments of Introspection) gave us this one but did not tell me where she got it. It's long so we broke it up in two parts. Today is the second and final part. And please don't fret, Kwizgiver will be back soon. She'll straighten this all back out!
Okay, now time for me to shout:
Cheers to all of us thieves!!
23. Have you ever gone to the “dark side”?
Is that Darth Vader's side?
Or Bock Beer side?
Oooo, I love Bock Beer. Hmmm... Cookies and beer, what a concept.
Oh, Oh!! you mean dark chocolate. Yes, and yummy it is, with beer.
Now this one >> comes right out of "Office Space"
24. What shirt are you wearing right now?
A night shirt. It's about time to wrap this puppy up, init?
25. What’s important about a bed to you? Like type of sheets, size or whatever.
I've found that it's best size wise is a California King if the dog is going to sleep with you. A Queen is too small even for a 15 pound dog and two humans. The dog thinks the whole thing belongs to him.
Maybe we need to do this?
26. Can you sing?
Yes, I can still sing and even harmonize as long as no one is listening. Maybe I should sing in the car with the Stereo blasting (like the good old days) but I hardly ever go anywhere alone now.
27. What is something about you that would surprise us?
If I haven't told you before this, it's highly unlikely that I'd tell you now.
28. Have you been a pirate, Renaissance Fair, or other costumed event? If not, would you for the right event or say cause?
Um, something is missing there... "at a.."? Women don't "swashbuckle" in quite the same way as a guy, despite the excellent performance by Keira Knightly in "Pirates of the Caribbean3". So no. I have been a fortune teller which was a blast, but wouldn't do as a pirate. No, i wouldn't dress up for any charity.
29. What songs do you sing in the shower?
Rigoletto, of course.......
No, really, I'd get water down my windpipe trying to sing Opera in the shower. I guess it would be like gargling, eh?
30. Favorite girl's name?
Maria. I wanted to name my first daughter that but it got nixed. It must have been, shall we say, too "Ethnic"? But in my heart, she was always my Maria.
31. Favorite boy's name?
32. What’s in your pocket or purse right now?
Actually I don't know. The purse is big and shaped like a backpack and it's kitted out like an EMT's bag.
33. Last thing that made you laugh?
Something in the Halloween episode of "NCIS" from a few years ago. We just saw it last night through the magic of Netflix.
34. Best toy as a child?
My mother saved up and bought me a beautiful tea set. Not the kid kind, but a real grown up one.
35. Worst injury you have ever had?
A broken back. I had to fight for years to get back my strength and the crappy thing is that no one tells you that when you are 65 it's all going to come back down on you anyway.
36. Where would you love to live?
Somewhere in Central Coast, California. My whole Life is up there. But it's freaking impossible.
37. What type of TV do you have? Would you’d like an upgrade?
It's a small flat screen, and no,we don't want an upgrade. This one fits the little space it's in, perfectly. But, if you are giving them away we could re-arrange furniture a bit.
38.OK it's really missing
39. How many dogs do you have?
One, but I'd like one more. I'd love to get a very little, very fuzzy white rescue dog.. That's why I can't look at shelter dogs anymore. I think Wolfie needs a sister, and Mr. Z. and I might have a big fight if I find one.
40. Do most folks trust you?
They seem to. I always try to be honest and trustworthy, and to keep no agenda running in the background like too many people seem to do.
41. What book are you reading?
I've been trying to read books for the last six month now but it's not working. I just started yet another one.
42. What’s your favorite classic TV show?
I always loved "Major Dad", And over the years I've added, "Frazier".
43. What’s your favorite sports team?
That would be both the Green Bay Packers and the Forty Niners, both equally. The Packers because classmates played for them, and the Niners because, well, I just really like them.
44. Favorite month and why?
I've always loved October because the hot weather is over, and the holiday season starts shortly after. This may change. Lots of things are changing. Move'n on...
