29 October 2017

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!

In honor of the appoaching Halloween, I found this weirdly formatted set on a question meme site.

    ghost: what would you like on your tombstone?
Funny the World (that is also something on our sons' grave markers)

    dracula: are you afraid of aging? or death?
Not afraid of death; I'm more afraid of dying.  Not really afraid of aging, as long as I can do it gracefully.

    nosferatu: what, as a child, did you imagine went bump in the night?
There were snakes under my bed.  I always had to jump way out away from the bed to prevent being grabbed when I woke up in the morning.  Even when I went back home to visit as an adult and knew it was ridiculous, I still took a big step away from the bed when getting up.  Just in case.

    godzilla: what do you do when you are angry? are you ever destructive?
I'm never destructive.  I may say a few bad words (sometimes loudly)

    the blob: do you collect anything? if so, what & why?
I have, over my life collected several things which are all now dust catchers, so I don't deliberately collect anything any more.  Anybody want a magnet from a zillion different places?

    zombie: when was the last time you trusted your gut? was it successful?
I can't remember, but as a general rule, my gut has never served me well when I count on it.

    mothra: what is something dangerous that attracts or fascinates you?
I am fascinated by tornados, and very happy that I do not live where they form. (I was probably strongly affected by The Wizard of Oz as a kid!)

    king kong: what are some questionable choices you've made lately?
Some impulse purchases, perhaps.  I can't think of anything else.

    alien: what is your strangest feature?
The curl has returned to my hair and there is a curl on top of my head that stands up and curls over and will not be tamed.  I'm kind of an old lady version of Alfalfa (The Little Rascals)

    cthulhu: do you like the ocean? why or why not?
I love the ocean.  I am never happier than when I am somewhere where I can hear and smell the sea (not interested in being IN it, though)

    nessie: have you ever felt invisible to people -- the feeling of not existing?
Oh my god...all the time!!!  Standing in a group of people, trying to contribute to the conversation and ignored, writing e-mail to a group of people who don't seem to realize you have written anything.

    mutant spider: what is one of your biggest fears?
Alzheimers.  Or being incapacitated by some physical situation that forces me to be dependent on others for everything.

    werewolf: if you could change into any nonhuman animal and back at will, what animal would you change into and why?
An elephant.  I am endlessly fascinated with elephant societies and would love to be able to learn to communicate with the rest of the herd.

     golem: if you could make up an imaginary friend, what would they be like and why?
I don't have enough imagination any more to do that, but in grammar school, I anthropomorphized the toilet paper dispenser of the grammar school bathroom into a friend that I could talk to when I felt lonely (is that pathetic, or what???)

    leprechaun: what is your "pot of gold" (or white whale, if you'd rather)
Any time we drive to San Francisco and it is a sparkling clear day, I feel like I've found my pot of gold.

    sharktopus: what is something you've done that was ridiculous or a bad decision?
Let's forget "bad decisions."  Things I've done that are "ridiculous" are some of my more fun activities -- like the time my friend Char and I baked 10 small pumpkin pies for our kids to throw at each other.

     robot: what is a habit you do without thinking?
Put my glasses in the same place each night (or else I can't find them in the morning)



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