Hi! I'm your host Bev Sykes of the blog "Funny
the World". . 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!
1. Name three things you love about yourself.
- my sense of humor
- my writing
- my hair
2. What’s the bravest thing you ever did?
Probably flying alone to Australia. Though I was going to be staying
with Peggy and traveling with her, I had never flown internationally alone
before and it felt weird.
3. Talk about the craziest night of your life.
The first thing that comes to mind is a night when we went to a Champagne
Gala at the Lamplighters, sometime in the early 1970s. I wore a
sparkly coulotte outfit that was a little too long for me. We had a
father, a very proper British guy, from our babysitting co-op taking care of
our kids. I was pretty drunk when we got home, the sitter was on the
porch watching us, and I tripped on my coulotte going up the stairs, fell on
my face, and peed all over myself.
4. Name three things you want in life.
- Continued good days for my mother
- For our upcoming merging with Ned and Marta to work out
- Consistent good sleep nights
5. Who’s your biggest celebrity crush?
It's no secret that I had a crush on Judy Garland. These days there
are celebrities that I enjoy, but none that I would say I had a "crush" on.
If he were not young enough to be my grandson, I might have a crush on Sam
6. What’s your most common mistake?
I've been a typist most of my life. When I was working in a doctor's
office, one of the doctors had a baby she named Meredith. Meredith is
now in her 20s and I still can't type her name without making it Meredity
7. Which three things would you save if there was a fire?
- Jack Point
- Delicate Pooh
8. What’s your favourite sport?
I have loved horse racing until I became aware of the cruelty to so many
horses. I love watching springboard diving at the summer Olympics and
several events in the winter Olympics
9. Talk about something good that recently happened to you.
Best thing that happened lately is finding the perfect home for my mother,
who is now living in a board and care home--a real house instead of a
"facility." It's $2,000/mo less than we have been paying and in this
place, where there are only 3 other women living, she has stopped her
aggression, is sleeping well, and doing better than she has in years.
Technically this is something good that happened to HER, but my mind is so
relieved it really happened to me too!
10. Which fictional world would you want to live in if you could?
The fictional world of Harry Potter, or perhaps the Star Trek world (TOS).
11. What’s one thing you can never say no to?
12. Talk about a childhood memory.
Our flat in San Francisco backed up on the yard of an apartment building
which had a small concrete yard. We played baseball there all the
time. First base was a lump on the wall, second base was the back
wall, third base was the stairs and home was right under my parents' kitchen
window. We had no bat, but hit a tennis ball with our forearms.
Those were fun days. There were four of us who played--my sister and I
and my friend Stephen (who lived in the apartment building) and his brother.
13. Name five things you find attractive in others.
- sense of humor
- common interests
- shared political views
- anyone who cares about social issues
- love of animals
14. Are you good at making final decisions or do you easily change your
It depends on the situation. I think I am more good at making final
decisions, but I have also been known at being adamantly wishy washy.
15. Name three guilty pleasures of yours.
- peanut butter
- The Food Network
- TV marathons (like M*A*S*H, NCIS, etc.)
