Sunday Stealing: What's a crush.

What's a Crush?

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on  
WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. 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, if possible. We also provide a link to the victim's questions 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 recently asked questions from a previously post. Cheers to all of us thieves!

Note:  If you want to join in, go HERE.  And, Bev, thank you so much for doing this meme every week.  

This set of questions is called "Questions to ask Your Crush" but it seems like a regular old set of questions to me!

1. What do you find hilarious, but most people don’t find funny?
Satire.  Especially Political and Religious Ironic satire.

2. What was the best year of your life so far?
I don't see life that way.  I never have.  Life is a "put your head down and get it done" thing to me.  I'm happiest when I go to bed at night and know I've done my level best to get through a day and have succeeded in staying loving no matter what the challenges.  

3. What’s your favorite thing to do on the Internet?
I love the memes that I do.  Instagram is a huge but fun  time sink but it's something I can do when I can't be on the PC.

4. What fad have you held on to even tho it isn’t popular any more?
I don't know.  I never cared whether anything I did was popular or not. I am first and foremost an eccentric.

5. What do you spend most of your time doing?
Breathing in and out.  I find that doing that keeps everything else working.

6. What do you spend way too much money on?
Prescriptions?  Anyway, nowadays I'm too frugal to waste money.  In the past I bought a lot of yarn and fabric, knowing that I wouldn't be able to afford it in my old age.  I'm glad I have it.

7. What event, large or small, has changed the course of your life most?
Getting Married to my Hubby.  It put my feet on a wonderful new path of learning to be a real Human Being. It brought motherhood, and family, and a lot of joy into a life that was the very model of stress and turmoil before that.

8. Who do you have a hard time taking seriously?
The Ignoble Republican Party, which has changed so much as to be unrecognizable from the one I first paid attention to, mostly because of IKE.  It now has never stopped harping on Health Care, even though they singlehandedly created the big problems that exist today within the Affordable Health Care Act.  They did it.  Just read back it it was They!

9. What do you judge people for most often?
Mostly for Kindness.  Mean, Greedy People suck!

10. What was the most beautiful view you have ever experienced?
The Coast of California above Santa Barbara and clear on up to, and probably beyond, Oregon.  

11. What is something you read or heard that has stuck with you for a long time?
Joseph Conrad's book, Heart of Darkness.

12. What’s your favorite thing to shop for.  Why?
I like to shop for baked Goods, from bread to cakes.  Why?  Because Bakeries are very special places, the smells in them are divine, and they make me very happy.

13. What’s the best compliment someone can receive?
"You just did a very kind thing.  Not many people would have done something like that."

14. What’s something people go on and on about and you just can’t stand sitting through?
I really can no longer tolerate Bigots or Racists.  They seem to have NO sense at all about how wrong they are about being a so called Christian, and having NO compassion to speak of for anyone but their own subset of creatures, they behave the way we now see them doing.  Where is the honor that was theirs when Ike was President.  I'm not talking about personal because he was unfaithful, but I'm talking about National Honor. 

15. What’s something you can do that most people can’t?
I can pretty much draw, or paint, anything at all.

16. When was the last time you tried to look cool and ended in embarrassment?
Well, since I never TRY to look cool, I've never had the experience you ask about.

17. What is the most ridiculous rule you have to follow?
We are thieves.  Do you mean there are rules?  Anyway, I'm trying to think about rules I have to follow that I think are ridiculous.  As I said before, I'm eccentric enough to not follow society, and that's where all the stupid rules reside.  

18. What country do you not know the location of, even though you should?
I'm 75 years old and have always known were all the countries in the world are, even after the Soviet Union fell.  I know of no country that I SHOULD know and do not. Sorry. can't think of one.

19. What do you have a hard time with but most people find quite easy?
I'm slightly dyslexic, so I have to think about which is the right or the left eye when Wolfie is facing towards me.  He gets a special eye drop twice a day.  He is wiggly so I hold him.

20. What’s the most impressive skill you have?
See answer #15.  I am in awe of  that Muse thing myself.  I have no idea why it is my talent.  But, "Every child has it's talent", and that one is mine.  
I get this quote from a remarkable woman who raised a foster child who could not see, but he could hear a piece of piano music ONE time and repeat it note for note on the piano she bought for him.  Kindest of people, this lady, and completely an Angel.  An Angel!

Please forgive any run on sentences.  I've spent some time at Urgent Care.  Now I have antibiotics, topical and pills, and those things are always NOT fun.  That's my excuse for brain farts, and there you are.   
Be happy Thieves!  Get out there and steal something from the rich and give to the poor!  They are always stealing from the Poor!


  1. Our views don't always match up, but I think we can agree that pretty much all of the establishment in Washington is a cesspool of excess and mainly interested in protecting their own interests and agendas at any cost...to the people, that is. I agree about there being little to no honor these days...National or personal. I have always admired your sincere efforts to live as a kind and loving person. And your creative talents. I admire those, too. :)

    1. I don’t see this as anything but a problem with one party, and one alone. They are the ones who have gotten so far off track that they may take this whole country down. I don’t see Washington as the problem. I see extremists as the problem, especially ideological ones. They have gotten to the heart of one party and taken it down a vey dark road indeed.
      Thank you for your comment about what I endeavor to do, and I think we share this, more than anything else we share this goal. I can see it in you, also. Have a lovely week, Stacy.

  2. Interesting, well thought-out answers!

    1. Thanksm Bev. I am flying off the handle because this thing is getting wild, wild, wild. It's a shame that the popular vote does not win and election! Where else but here, the land of the almighty dollar, is it so?

  3. I hope you're feeling much better soon! I buy a lot of books because I know I will have to cut back on my retirement spending. :)

    1. Thanks, Kwizgiver. I'm on the mend me thinks. 7 days of antibiotics. *insert little "gack" face emoji*
      And yes, books were another thing that I bought a lot of, especially the secondary markets on the web. I bought a lot used. I wanted plenty of yarn, books and quilting fabric to face my old age with. I'm happy that I did!

  4. I agreed with all of your answers, Zip. We must be kindred spirits.

    1. We must be CountryDew. I'm pleased that I can think of the world with you in it, clear over on almost the east coast, going about your day and thinking things through. Very pleased.

  5. I agree with your comment on bakeries. They are a heavenly place to visit.

    1. Yes, they are. And, the smell of fresh baked breads is the most enticing food aroma that there is, to me. And I love to see the all the gorgeous cakes, too.


Thank you for reading here. Time is getting short for me but I will always comment on your blog site. So, please leave contact info if you are not linked at the meme’s page.
