Sunday Stealing: Better late than never?

We found this gem... from a blogger named Becky Yanagy from the blog “where life takes you” who said, “After being sick for a week and not blogging, I hate to come back with another [set of questions]...but my pal Nettie tagged me. Anything for Nettie. ;-)” She tagged anyone who read it, so we are in! And we never trace our theft  further, who has the time? Unlike so many blogs we steal from, this blog in till active. Why I shared that info or why it's relevant I haven't a clue. Sorta like the tweets of the Donald. Oh on the name this meme. Today is December 4th and it's my brother's birthday. His nickname if "Boat". But I still call him Mark.


Time to toast, to Mark and to us!!

Cheers to all of us thieves! 


Sunday Stealing: The Boat Questions 

The header right above goes to the Sunday Stealing mother ship.


1. YOU HAVE 10 BUCKS AND NEED TO BUY SNACKS AT A GAS STATION. WHAT DO YOU GET?
Two of their horrid decaf coffees and any kind of chocolate nut bars.  

2. IF YOU WERE REINCARNATED AS SOME SORT OF SEA DWELLING CREATURE, WHAT WOULD YOU BE?
I'd want to be any kind that isn't hunted or threatened with extinction.  I'd like to be so DEEEP in the Mid ocean trenches, and I don't care which one, that my species would never be "discovered".  

3. WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE REDHEAD?
I have three favorites, and Mr. Z who is now gray haired but started out as a redhead.  I don't play favorites because Love is infinite and has very broad shoulders.  Love is the strongest human emotion and hate is supposed to be it's equal and opposite but I just don't believe everything said about that.

4. WHAT DO YOU ORDER WHEN YOU'RE AT A DINER?
I've never eaten at a Diner.

5. LAST BOOK YOU READ?
The Collected Works of Somerset Maugham, but I didn't actually finish it before the long arm of the digital library snatched it back.

6. DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE PAIR OF UNDERWEAR?
Hip huggers all cotton and very comfy.

7. DESCRIBE THE LAST TIME YOU WERE INJURED.
Thanksgiving day, we were dropping off DH's Mom, and I got out of the backseat of the Jeep, to go around to the front seat, and it was dark.  I tripped over the invisible curb and bruised my wrist, knee and ribs.  I'll never do that again.  Funny thing is, there are so many injuries like that.  They are "one offs" and such a sucky, hard way to learn.

8. ROCK CONCERT OR SYMPHONY? LAST SEEN?
Neil Diamond's Concert, here, sometime in the 80's I think.

9. IF SOMEONE WERE TO BUY YOU A GIFT, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE IT TO BE?
I love, LOVE Christmas pins.  

10. WHAT TYPE OF SHIRT DO YOU BEST IN?
I look best in shirts that are from Africa or the Middle East.  I love those things and only own about three.  Need to get more. 

11. IF YOU COULD USE ONLY ONE FORM OF TRANSPORTATION FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
It would have to be the Automobile and mostly because of where we live, i.e., California.  Our governor has been trying to get a hyper-fast train approved but heaven only knows what wall of "invested, interested money grubbers" are blocking the path.

12. WHAT IS YOUR DEADLY SIN? 
Odd as it may seem, none of my sins reach that level of intensity.

13. MOST RECENT MOVIE YOU'VE WATCHED IN A THEATER? RATE IT. 
I haven't been to the movies since before Master and Commander was released; we finally watched that one, at home, in the privacy of our cabin,  a few years ago.  The theater is for the young, who don't need a pause button.
  
14. IF YOU COULD INVENT ONE THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 
 A cure for Aggression and Greed.  This cure would be airborne and have a nice smell.  It would work at the molecular level inward to the DNA.  It would be free.  And no, no Armies need apply for access. 

15. NAME AN ACTOR/ACTRESS YOU'VE HAD THE HOTS FOR? 
 Never happened, but I did pretty much collapse into tears when Richie Valens died.

16. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CITY? LAST TIME THERE? 
I would pick, no surprise, Santa Cruz Ca.  June, we were there in June.

17. WHAT'S THE FIRST WORD THAT COMES TO MIND RIGHT NOW? 
Appellations  .... odd but true.

18. WHAT TYPE OF PET DO YOU HAVE? 
 A doggie and five California Desert Tortoises; the Torts are now in hibernation.  The two smaller ones we get up from time to time to soak and feed them.

19. WHERE HAVE YOU LIVED THE LONGEST? 
San Diego.

20. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON THAT SPENT $100 ON YOU? 
Mr. Z.  He bought me a singing bowl from Buddha for You, a local store.  Great place, by the way, with classes in Meditation. My bowl is up there in the singing bowls pics.  I got the Heart Chakra bowl, top shelf on the right.  It is a work of art, so gorgeous, and beautifully sings.

21. WHAT'S THE LAST PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU BOUGHT?
Some tops from Zulily.

22. WHAT WAS/IS YOUR FAVORITE JOB?  
I really loved being an classroom aide.  I would have loved to teach at any level- well, maybe not junior high.  I think too many American kids are basically carnivores at that level.

23. WHO MAKES YOU LAUGH THE MOST??
My DDs and Mr. Z.  Well, my sweet SIL, too.

24. WHAT ARE YOU CRAVING?
I really want some Sea salt and vinegar chips.
25. WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?
I can't really talk about it.
