Who IS this Gilbert person anyway?
7 October 2017
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated onWTIT: 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!
We can all use some help sometimes with conversation starters, so I found this at a conversation starters site. There are 100 of them, but I'm only using a few! (I'll save the rest to ask sometimes in the future!)
If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Read, watch TV, surf the net. Like I do all day long anyway!
What’s your favorite piece of clothing you own / owned?
I almost never wear it, because I don't have the opportunity, but I had a jacket made for me on a cruise in China and I love it. It's usually too warm here to wear to the theater (which is when I thought I would wear it a lot)
What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
Fancy schmancy scrapbooking, but equipment is very expensive ... even things like rubber stamps and patterned paper add up.
What would your perfect room look like?
Well, this office is pretty much like it. Enlarge it (double the size) and add more storage and it would be perfect
How often do you play sports?
What are these "sports" of which you speak?
What fictional place would you most like to go?
Narnia, so I could talk to the animals (but stay out of all the battles)
What job would you be terrible at?
Bookkeeper. I'd bankrupt my client within 6 months or sooner.
When was the last time you climbed a tree?
I'm sure I've climbed a tree since then, but the last time I remember was the day before our first child was born. She was 2 weeks late and I thought the activity might jar her loose (must have worked because I went into labor that night). That was 51 years ago.
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning medal for?
TV remote wrangling
What skill would you like to master?
I'd like to have the tool skills and innate food knowledge that any of the Food Network chefs have. (Plus all the expensive equipment they have, of course!)
What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?
A photo safari to Africa. But I manage to get satisfaction with Nature documentaries, avoiding all the rough roads, lots of walking, and the danger of marauding lions.
If you had unlimited funds to build a house that you would live in for the rest of your life, what would the finished house be like?
It would have a turret room overlooking the ocean, a library filled with books, comfy places to sit and a wet bar, a kitchen like the Pioneer Woman's (including a pantry as well stocked as hers), a TV room like my son used to have and bedrooms filled with king sized beds with the best mattresses available and lots and lots of pillows. One bathroom would have one of those walk-in old people tubs and...why not?...a bidet. A big craft/computer room with lots and lots of cubby holes for craft supplies, and finally a man cave for Walt, which he can design himself. Everything on one level, so no stairs to climb. And a wrap-around porch where I can sit and read when it's coolish.
What state or country do you never want to go back to?
No state but I probably would not like to return to Ukraine, which was nice to see once.
What songs have you completely memorized?
Just about every popular song from the 40s and 50s, most of the songs from the most popular musicals, and hundreds, if not thousands, of others.
What do you consider to be your best find?
This is really funny, but I was telling Walt last night that the most valuable tool in my kitchen -- or at least the one that gets the most use -- is the little thing that opens jar lids. I'm not sure that is my best find ever, but it's something I really value
Are you usually early or late?
I am almost either right on time or a little early.
What pets did you have while you were growing up?
Just one, a cat named Socksie (because he had four white feet). After he ran away, we never had another animal because the doctors discovered my sister had animal dander allergies.
When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?
It's usually someone wanting me to help with fund raising, which I hate and now that I'm a grumpy old lady, rarely agree to do.
What takes up too much of your time?
What do you wish you knew more about?
I wish I had an encyclopedic knowledge of history so I could participate in political discussions with more confidence. I'd also like to be fluent in several languages.
What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years?
"Did Trump destroy the country?"

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
