Sunday Stealing: Curious as a Cat

Curious as a Cat

These are from a site called Curious as a Cat.

If you'd like to play along with the Pirates, go HERE!  

And thank you to BEV,  the host for all of these latter Day Sunday Stealings..  😘 😘 😘

If you don't wanna play, you'd better bring a bathing suit.  This is because if we catch you loitering on the Poopdeck, we'll have to Keel Haul you, Me Hearties!

1. I wish I had enough money to Buy an Election. Lol.

2. If you had to enter a competition for the "Most Uselessly Unique Talent," what would your talent be?  I was going to say, Tuvan Throat singing.. but i'm sadly out of practice.. so.. *pass*.

Is that beautiful or what?  😘

3. When it might hurt their feelings, how do you feel about telling your friends the truth?
I will only tell them the truth if they ask a direct question, and if they can do it before I see it coming...  "Oh look, A Llama!"

4. Peanut or plain?
M&M's?  Plain. 

5. Is there someone you would like to take your place in life for one day? Who and why? 
Mr. Z.  I'd like him to experience the things I can only tell him about.

6. Who was your favorite teacher and why?
Mr. B.  He did his best to show me that there was a life for me after Psychotic parental abuse.

7. What do you think is the ugliest thing or event on Earth?
The slaughter of dogs and cats in the orient for Meat.  And, before anyone thinks it's a two faced thinga, I must say I don't like what the West does to other animals very much either.

8. What is your least favorite of your personality traits or quirks?
I don't like seeing some things with a clarity that beggars description and then being able to do absolutely nothing about them.  It's a very helpless feeling.  I don't like feeling helpless.  See #6.

9. I wish I could see into Heaven because it would be nice to see if such a paradise exists.

10. Tell us your favorite children's story.
If I had one, it's lost in the mists of time...sorry.

11. Explain how to play your favorite game.
I love Acey - Duecey..  It's like backgammon but we played with nuts and washers.

12. What do you keep in the trunk of your car?
😎 Our car doesn't have a trunk.  We do keep an blanket and a clear plastic flip top box of picnic supplies in the back of the jeep, and a couple of chairs.  The way things are looking I thought we might pack up some survival food ala the infamous Pinterest how to's. lol

13. Tell us about your favorite way to get lost in a simple activity — running, chopping vegetables, folding laundry, whatever. What’s it like when you’re in "the zone"?
I'm never Zoned.  See #6.  It's dangerous to be Zoned.  Well, maybe knitting.  Hmmm.. I do have to knit on smaller needles than normal....  OK... Knitting does it.  I can get zoned when Knitting.  I'm what's known as a loose knitter.

14. What’s your dream tourist destination — either a place you’ve been and loved, or a place you’d love to visit? What about it speaks to you?
Forget visit. I want to live there!   Big Sur.  I want to live and experience the community there.  The only other place I could actually live would be along the coast above Santa Cruz near Glass Beach. 

15. What parts of nature do you like best?
Oceans and Mountains. and the amazing California Deserts....Equally... to be in - in season.

16. What kind of program do you enjoy most on TV--detective shows, comedies, game shows--and why?  I like comedies.  And then next to that, I like detective shows.  I've never willingly watched a game show.  I have nothing against them but they are sort of watching, say, Golf. 

17. Do you know any professional athletes?
18. What will the next must-have technological innovation be? Jetpacks? Hoverboards? Wind-powered calculators?
Anything that has a liability clause on the box is not going to make it.  So, I'd go with wind/solar powered calculators and emergency lights.

19. Have you ever been the victim of a crime?

20. What if you woke up tomorrow with the ability to understand animals. What do you think you’d hear from them?
Everyone can "read" animals.  We are animals.  One of our inborn instincts is an awareness far beyond the "normal" - if we learn to truly listen to the other Earthlings.  The Buddhists are ON to something here....

21.What is something that makes you melancholy?
Sad songs.  

I leave you with a beautiful but FAR OUT offering from Mongolia... 
Baby, they are coming to get us.... Again!



  1. I have never heard of Tuvan Throat singing...but WOW! Loved the video you shared of it! Have a great Sunday!

    1. Thanks Jodi. I hope that you have a great week, since your Sunday is all but over by now. Stay Warm! Brrr! You guys back East are really getting slammed!

  2. Acey-Deucy! Oh my word, I haven't thought of that in eons! We used to love playing!


    1. Someone who has played it!
      I would like to play it again but board game playing ended when the kids moved away. Acey-Deucy might JUST make it back though. It really is fun. The game you shared is interesting but I couldn't follow it. lol

  3. Really like your last answer! We are indeed animals. People forget. Hope you're doing well.

    1. Thank you. I was hoping that you would know that I wasn't against raising animals to eat if they are cared about. And, yes, people do forget they are animals themselves. Animals are a part of a whole beautifully evolving system that existed long before man evolved.
      I'm working on getting well enough to be strong again. And thank you for thinking of me and trying to get in touch. I've just been AFK so long that if you sent me an email, it's in the system but buried there. I'd love to have your email address,too. I looked for it on your website but couldn't see it. Take care, my Sister of the Heart.

  4. I love oceans and mountains and I agree with you on being able to read animals. Loved your answers! Have a nice day!


    1. Thank you Lori. I'm at Peace when I'm in the Mountains, and at or near the Ocean.
      I think that you have a very loving heart, and I'm so glad that you have stuck with this MEME. It's been a joy to know you.

  5. Your answer to #1 had me laughing so hard I almost lost my coffee.
    I agree with you on 20. I took it more literally though, like exact communication.

    1. I couldn’t Question 1 was like a Divine Inspiration, I tell ya. 😉
      Question 20: I couldn’t find your answers for Sunday Stealing. I believe that humans and other animals can pass thoughts to one another. There’s no reason they can’t because even though humans think that thought arises in the brain, only, there are other ways of forming thought. The brain is the last to know. Lol. Have a lovely week. It’s time for sleeeeeeping. “A little bird told me” . It’s more than just a saying. ☺️😉😘
