Sunday Stealing: Last week's Sunday Stealing called "The Procrastination Questions".

This is the Sunday Stealing from last week

We found this gem from a blogger named Vylar Kaftan whose blog is named: Writer of Science Fiction & Fantasy. The title refers to WHY she did the questions this week as a "procrastination tool". She does not explain where she stole the it from. But, it was probably stolen at that blog as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Please consider liking WTIT on Facebook. Click here.

Want to play along?  Go HERE... Believe me, this is a very fun meme...

Cheers to all our thieves!

1. What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
Mine is The Purple Mint.

2. What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it?

3. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Yes.  And I have the scars to prove it. 

4. What is the last heavy item you lifted?
At first I thought you wanted to know what big thing I stole.  Ahem, but my brain wanders to realms unknown lately.  I lifted Wolfie.  Oh yes.. a box of rocks.  It was many pounds heavier than Wolfie.

5. Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
No, but I've been choked unconscious.  Well, I did once fall on the cement walkway to the porch and dented my head but was only out for like 10 seconds. Does that count?

6. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
No, and really, I just want to be brave and face it squarely.  So, I pray to be brave.

7. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I wish I'd been given a french name, like my sister's and brothers' names.  I'd pick Chantelle, Amalie, or Manon.

8. What’s your goal for the year?
Just to survive it and comfort my living children.

9. Last person you hugged?
My hubby. We need to hug more.

10. First place you went this morning?
Actually, I dashed in here to get a fax number for my trainer.  

11. Do you always answer your phone?
Land line NEVER get's answered. Cell is answered IF it is from a caller on my list.

12. It’s four in the morning and you get a text message, who is it?
People know better than to try to reach me after 10.

13. If you could change your eye color what would it be?
I'd have liked to have great big crystalline blue eyes like my grandma.  Instead I got a mix of blue and and mostly brown.

14. What’s on your wish list for your birthday?
Haven't got one, sorry.  

15. Does the future make you more nervous or excited?
The future never looked so bleak, so I'd have to say "nervous".

16. Do you have any saved texts?
Yes.  From my daughter Elle.

17. Ever been in a car wreck?
Yes, I've been caught under a flipped pickup truck and have the legs, feet, and knees to prove it.

18. Do you have an accent?
I've been told I have a California accent by friends in the South and in Texas.  I just sound like almost every Newscaster that I've heard so didn't know it was an accent.

19. What was the last song to make you cry?
I bawl when I here 'Landslide".  It just slays me.

20. What did you do last night?
We ate a dinner of leftovers and watched "Father Brown", "Inspector Lewis" and master classes of, "The Great British Baking Show"

21. Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom?
Yes.  Last year at this time, and also 55 years ago,  just before I met Mr. Z and he saved my life.

22. Current hate right now?
I don't hate on anything or anyone anymore.  I'm seeing upsides on a few issues that could pay off Hugely to save the earth.

23. Met someone who changed your life?
Well, I'm sure you all know that Mr. Z. changed my life.  But there were many of my teachers who got me through the early part of it. School was trans-formative, and put my feet on the path to somewhere called, "Normal".

24. How did you bring in the New Year?
The twins were here, so we brought in the New Year with them and we ate some chocolate - to make the new year a sweet one - and had some bubbly to wash it down. 

25. What song represents you?

There was a time that I was really joyful... then reality slapped me in the face. That's when I realized that Mother was right, Life really is sad.  So I take my joy wherever I can find it -mostly in the Beauty of the Earth.


  1. Life is sad, bad, good, and happy. It is all things and nothing. Feel better, Obi Wan.

  2. Thanks CountryDew, Life is all those thing, true.
    I'm trying to get over the numbness and ennui. One of my dd's is afflicted, too. She's the one who graduated from Berkeley in 2014. She's almost never down this long.
