Sunday Stealing: Ask, ask, ASK

November 5, 2016

Ask, ask, ASK

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

1 - Who was the last person you texted? 
A playpal, so we all could meet up and go do something like get leather and seeds for our stashes.

2 - When is your birthday?
It's right before Christmas.  In fact, I was born at home and in a snow storm.  The attending family doctor returned his fee because he considered me a Christmas present.  He was a wonderful person who always did the most unexpected, kind, and amazing things for people.

3 - Who do you want to be with right now?
Ding ding ding, and the answer is....

4 - What sports do you play?
As a young adult, I used to enjoy playing tennis, cycling and swimming.  Until my last surgery, I still enjoyed swimming from time to time.

5 - Who is the first person in your blogroll?
Dawn, a buddy from Knitter's Guild.

6 - What is your favorite song at the moment?
There's just too many songs to list them.... but this is my ear worm at the moment....

It is about my daughter.  Sometimes I feel her close to me.  So close...

7 - If you were stranded on an island, who do you wish to be with?
Mr. Z.  He's pretty much a MacGyver type.  He knows how to build a weir, and can fix literally anything.  We are both good in the wilderness.  This is a "keepsake" from one of our first camping trips together with our two tiny girls in the mid 60's.  He saw me brushing the picnic table off with my hands and made me this little pine needle brush to avoid splinters.

8 - What do you feel right now?
I feel quite strange, how about you?

9 - What chocolate is your favorite?
I like that dark chocolate Big bar (Pound Plus) from TJs.  I don't get to eat it all in one day though.  Tempting but not very smart. heehee

10 - How many boyfriends/girlfriends did you have?
Only the one.  He came at just the right time, too.  Before I went totally insane.

11 - Why did you create a blog account?
It was to show what I was knitting.  It was just after starting my first pair of socks.  Of course, it does cut into my knitting time but who cares?  Not me!

12 - Who is your favorite blogger?
I read over a hundred blogs.  They are all great.  Every person on the planet has a unique voice, and blogging brings that out, over time.  There is no better way to "see humanity" than through blogs.  I pray for people, by name, that I've never met face to face.  It's a sort of Nun thing to do.  Ya know?
Of course, I totally trust the Lord to know who, say, Binkie Blue Eyes is.  I see no obstacles.

13 - Where do you want to be right now?
I want to be in Santa Cruz, with DH, and in a house big enough to share with our struggling kids.

14 - What do you want to be in the future?
I just don't think about the future except I do NOT want a maniac straight up from the ranks of what has ruined (and has always ruined) the happiness of millions for the sake of a few more bucks.  Beware the Orange Menace!

15 - When was the last time you cried? Why?
Well, we can skip this one.  I'm crying now.

16 - Are you happy?
Ask me in a few months or maybe even years?

17 - Who do you miss?
My daughter.  And I miss being with her sisters and my two newly proclaimed sons.  Seeing all of them would be great.

18 - If you were given a chance, would you like to have a different life?
Yes.  I'd like a life with no untimely death in it.  I'm sick of this particular "Oddment of Life".

19 - What was the best thing you were given?
By God?  My sibs and own family.  By nature?  My voice.  

20 - Who was the last person who called you?
The groomer, or some anonymous roto caller wanting to inform me of the pros and cons of this or that.  They all go to voice mail where they can be flicked.

21 - What is your favorite dish?
Food?  I like pasta of any kind.  Someone has had the good sense to market wheat free pastas.

22 - Who is your best friend?
Mr. Z.  Meffie is my BFF.  I think of you all the time Meffie, in case you can read this.

23 - What is your biggest regret?
Not getting a Master of Fine Arts at UCLA when I had the chance.  Unfortunately, that might have changed so much in life that I might never have had the chance to have my wonderful children and husband.  If you change a single thing, you risk changing everything.

24 - Have you ever avoided your partner?
No.  He's probably avoided me. lol  I couldn't blame him.  Sometimes I'm wildly political, going all the way back to Sumeria for points made.

25 - Who do you spend crazy moments with?
Crazy is my sibs and me together.  We laugh and laugh about having a Psycho for a Dad, and other things.  It's that old, "If you don't laugh then you just gotta cry" thing.

Here's a little cheer me up that I like to watch from time to time.
Some of these seem a little cruel because the parents try to make the babies cry.  But there are a lot of funny baby moments in here.  Hope you agree.  Laugh and cry.....


  1. I am sorry that something is making you cry. It has been that way for me this weekend, too. That is a nice little whisk broom that was made for you...what a thoughtful gift. :)
    Have a blessed weekend.

  2. Thank you Suzanne. And sorry you've been weepy, too. I sure hope your week goes better than the weekend.
    I saw that you are knitting and crocheting. I think a lot of those two crafts for healing the mind and heart. It gives the brain a break and therefore, the heart. May you have a blessed weekend and week.

  3. Good morning, Zippi! Your story about your birth made me think of the Waltons. lol It sounds like it could have been an episode of that show.

    My hubby is a MacGyver type, too. I've been spoiled...never had to pay for a repairman or a contractor.

    Have a blessed week!

    1. Two things that Psycho Dad ever did for me that were good, was he taught me French, and he taught Bro and I how to use tools. He also was a contractor, like your hubby.

      My DH's dad was a commercial fisherman and also an engineer who worked on big boat engines and things, so we both got some skills.

      My birth story was a little scary for my mom who expected to get to the nearby hospital, but there was a major snow storm going and the doctor braved it instead. Yes, Very much like the Walton's.

      Thank you for the wishes, and I hope you have a blessed week, too.

  4. "Beware the Orange Menace!" LOL, amen a million times to this! My father was also born at home. My Memere fell down the stairs and went into labor (or that was the story.)

    1. This election has me very concerned. Dr.Strangelove? This from the New Yorker

      I'm just sayin' And by the way, either of the Kennedys would have done something about that breach had they lived.

      So, your poor Memere fell down the stairs, and the bebe came early? Happily, the whole thing didn't result in major injuries, and bebe was fine. But I'll bet it wasn't fun for your Memere at all. Recovery from giving birth is stress enough.

  5. I'm with ya on that untimely death thing. And how cool to have "Marcus Welby" for a doctor!

    Loved the babies...yes, good to cheer us up on a week when we all need some cheer!

    1. Bev, I can only imagine so much, much heart break. Big Hugs to you.

      Babies are the sweetest little things, and not just human ones. But, of course, humans are partial to baby things from any species. It's when the little animals grow up that the hard work starts.

  6. High Anxiety going on this weekend, I think. I am sorry you are so sad. I wish I lived less than 3,000 miles away! I'd come and give you a hug.

    1. Yes, very high. But America has survived some pretty bad helmsmen, and I trust we'll survive this,too, if it comes to it.

      If ever a teleporter would be handy, it is now. Thanks for those cyper hugs. I can feel them as sparkly healing sort of hugs. :o)

  7. Replies
    1. Oh Lordie Kwizgiver, thank you! I needed those for so many reasons. I just looked at the blue/red map. Will the tail wag the Dog, this time? Time will tell.
