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!


More questions from Sam Dobson, whose web site seems to be gone now.



1. If you could spend a day in someone else’s shoes who would it be and why?
Someone who has a normal size foot and is easy to find shoes that fit.

2. Which celebrity gets on your nerves the most, and why?
I actually can't think of any.  I don't pay much attention to celebrities any more, I guess.

3. If you were going to bury a time capsule, what would you put in it?
A newspaper, stamps (or maybe a stamped envelope), a flash drive with Funny the World entries on it, a copy of "Trifles from Tiny Tots," a Lawsuit CD, a face mask with a picture of people wearing them, a Biden for President button, Twinkies (I hate them but if you open the time capsule in 10 years, they should still be "fresh," or so I've heard)

4. What is your saddest memory?
The two telephone calls letting me know that our children had died.

5. Would you rather be in your pajamas or a suit all day?
Oh no question--pajamas, definitely

6. What’s the strangest place you’ve ever gone potty?
A 2-holer on  top of a hill that looked out over a beautiful landscape...and no door.  This was on property in Mendocino county owned by friends of ours.

7. How old were you went you had your first kiss?
13...and I remember nothing about it...except that I kept dating the guy for three years.  My heavens--that's just a year older than Brianna.  Sounds awfully young now!!

8. Do you have any strange or unique phobias?
I hate feet.  I hate touching feet, even my own (a difficult phobia to have when I had to give bone density tests that involved handling patients' feet when I worked in a doctor's office).

9. If you could bring back one toy from your childhood, what would it be?
I can't think of a favorite toy, but it would be fun to have the jigsaw puzzle that I used to make all the time again.

10. If you could be any Disney villain, which would you be?
The Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland.

11. If your life was a novel, what would the title be.?
"Funny the World," of course!

12. What do you need more of in your life?

13. What are your top 3 quotes?
"You can only make a difference if you care" -from The Last Session
*"There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face." -Ben Williams
*It has been said, “time heals all wounds.” I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. – Rose Kennedy

14. What do you want people to remember about you?
That I made a change (however small) in the world.

15. What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made?
I always say that I never finished college,  but everything wonderful in my life has come about because I didn't finish college, so maybe that wasn't such a big mistake after all.


Happy Birthday, Karen
