Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature
originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. 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.
(Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud)
Cheers to all of us thieves!
These are from
Love Me Some Surveys.
1. Has anyone ever made fun of your taste in music?
I have liked Judy Garland, John Denver, and Gilbert & Sullivan and hated
rock and roll. What do YOU think?
2. Is anyone’s birthday coming up?
My son Ned is turning 52 today. We are taking him out to dinner.
3. Do you remember who you liked in grade eight?
Probably my neighbor, Stephen. He was a crush all through grammar
4. When was the last time you burned any part of your body?
I have a burn scar on my right forearm that has been there for a couple
of days. I don't remember burning it -- it never hurt -- and the scar
5. If I gave you ten dollars, what would you spend it on?
Oh, I'd probably buy a food treat or something like that.
6. What are you most excited about right now?
My mother's 100th birthday, September 7. She has Alzheimers and
can't relate to "birthday" or the fact that she is turning 100, but we've
discussed this birthday a lot when she turned 90 and for years
she talked about whether or not she would live "to hunnert." Now she's
there and it's sad that she can't be excited...but we'll be excited for her.
7. Does / did either of your parents serve in the military?
No. My father really wanted to be in the Navy, but was 4-F.
8. Are you somewhat of a perfectionist?
Now that's the funniest question I've read in a long time.
9. Do you like sour candy?
My preference is chocolate. Sour candy is OK, but not my favorite.
10. Are all nighters something you have grown used to?
All nighters are my way of life. But I'm retired, and I get good
naps during the day.
11. Do you usually wear sunglasses when you’re driving?
If I've remembered to bring them with me. I get upset with myself
if I forget
12. Do you wear your shoes around the house?
I usually just wear socks, but have discovered lately that if I wear my
Birkenstocks when I cook dinner, my back doesn't hurt as much as it does
13. What clothes are you most comfortable in?
t-shirt and these day shorts (since it's so hot)...but I don't leave the
house in shorts.
14. Are you good at painting nails?
15. Smoothies or slushies?
Smoothies. Shushies are too cold and give me a headache.
