Sunday Stealing: Shannon's meme Part II

 August 27, 2016

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!!

Sunday Stealing: Shannon's Moments Meme, Part Two

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"  Image result for go to the dark side

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...
Thank you for playing this week on Sunday Stealing! Please leave a comment or link when you have posted. Stop back and visit other player’s posts. That is really what this is all about, making new friends! Have a great week. See you next Sunday! 


  1. I never noticed the missing 38. Good catch.

    1. Witches have an eagle's eye, even if half blind. lol

  2. A queen-sized bed definitely isn't big enough for 2 adults and an 8-pound Poodle, though I strongly suspect a king would not be large enough, either, since the Poodle likes to be snuggled up against us or sleep in the most awful of places like between our pillows or against the back of my neck.

    Swashbuckle as a verb....I like it!

    I only sprained my back and that was awful. I can't even imagine breaking your back. My back is aching this morning and I've been moaning about it in my head (hubby's not up to moan to, lol)...you just put it in perspective and shut me up!

    Have a great week, Zippi!

    1. Thank you Stacy! You, too!
      And sometimes sprained backs are harder to heal and they also come back to haunt, so go ahead and sing it out, sista!
      Ah yes, those tiny doggies. Our five pound poodle slept right up next to me, like a little brick! One morning in the desert when he'd been shivering all night (my poor baby!) he looked at me when I woke up and implored me to let him under the covers, which I did immediately. That's when we started putting a chemically activated heating pad between us, and under him. and I made a soft coverlet baglet for him. Poor little fellow! He was just too tiny to sleep under the covers, or he'd have been there in that 31 degree overnight weather.

  3. They don't tell you a lot of things when you're young, or if they do, I suppose we don't believe them. I wish I'd been told some things when I was younger - might've taken better care of myself. Or maybe not. Too late now to know, anyway! Take care of yourself.

    1. Thank you CountryDew, and I wish you some great therapy docs who can get you more back to yourself! My mistake was getting on a horse I just did not trust, and getting thrown over it's head into a rock pile. I wish I'd never met the slightly scatty lady who owned him, but I really blame myself for being so spineless about sticking to my intuition about the horse.

    2. yep they keep lots of secrets from the young! which they are finding out now those secrets due to commercials...if they are paying attention...

    3. Yes, "they" do and are. And the Young have skills, too, jennifer, major skills. I hope the Young of the Nation will rise up and byte "them" on the butts!

      Have a great week!

  4. My favorite month is October, too. I love autumn in Maine! It's glorious.

    1. Isn't it just the most beautiful one, and especially in Maine! Yes, glorious is the word!
      We do get fall colors here but more around Thanksgiving or Christmas. I need to go visit my favorite trees at that time. The Liquid Amber trees are beautiful here.

  5. LOL See how much I pay attention!!!! I totally did not see that #38 was missing.

    1. Shannon, when I saw that, I thought I'd screwed up and didn't cut and copy the entirety, but #38 just has to be the mystery question. Let's see, 38. "And what did you want for Christmas when you built the whole corral all by yourself?" There, that one's mine. You're up now. heehee. Hugs!

  6. *sigh* I want to live in California. Not looking forward to facing another New England winter.

    1. Terri, I don't blame you. Winters are tough in Maine.
      One winter week in Tahoe in the snow convinced me I really didn't miss even the mild winters in Ohio.
      If you don't already have them, get some UGG boots for INSIDE the house. And enjoy the Fall colors. Take lots of pictures, and just stare at them with your UGGs on, or enlarge one of your summer grass meadow flower snaps and plaster it on the wall above the computer desk.


I love comments. However, since I am not blogging as much anymore, if you leave a legitimate comment, and contact info, I will visit your blog.
