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!



Stolen from Thursday Thunks




1. Did you eat paste and/or glue as a child?
I don't think I ate it, but I did taste paste now and then.

2. Look at the wall to your right, what is on it?
A boomerang from Australia and a painting from Ukraine.

3. Do you put butter and/or salt on your popcorn?
I almost never make popcorn,, but if I do, definitely both butter (lots of it) and salt

4. What does your favorite coffee cup look like?

5. Would you rather have a pet hippo or a pet elephant?
Well, neither should be "pets," but I'd prefer an elephant, though would hate to do the pooper scooper.

6. Toilet Paper - hard, soft, extra soft?
These days I have a bidet and don't need TP, but my preference is extra soft.

7. Have you ever rescued/taken in a stray animal?
We fostered for the SPCA for five years and adopted two of the dogs we fostered.  Probably had something like 100 dogs as fosters over the years.

8. If you realize your house is on fire while you are using the bathroom, do you wipe or just run for the door?
Wipe.  The bathroom is just steps from the front door, so plenty of time to wipe.

9. Now, if you only had $10 to buy one thing, what would it be?
You can't get much for only $10, but it would probably be some kind of pastry-like sweet.

10. What’s your favorite type of potato?
Baked potato or French fries.

11. How long do you keep unmatched socks before you get rid of them... and how do you dispose of these socks?
I have a whole drawer full of unmatched socks, but when I get rid of them, I donate them to a thrift shop.

12. What was the last thing you took a picture of?
My Wizard of Oz mask (Photo of the Day yesterday)

13. Do you use a cookbook?
I used to have a whole library of cookbooks, but now just have one shelf.  Most of the time if I need a recipe, I Google it.

14. Bottled or tap water?
Bottled.  Our tap water doesn't taste all that good.  I have a few pint bottles that I continue to fill from our water cooler, so I'm not wasting plastic..

15. Do you like pumpkin pie? Do you cheat and buy a premade one or do you make it from scratch? Heck, do you even make pumpkin pie at all?
I love pumpkin pies.  Definitely make from scratch.  Pumpkin pies have been a big deal in our family forever.
