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!



From the Happy Fit Navy Wife




1. What was your proudest moment?
Opening night of the children's theater production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.  The director of the company had left town, leaving money in the treasury and the kids wanting to do this show.  They got the rights to do it, Jeri directed, Paul was Charlie Brown, David was Linus, Tom was Schroeder and Ned built sets...and then there were others involved as well who did music direction, costume design and lighting design.  The whole show was done by kids.  They did such an incredible job and I was so proud of all of them.

2. What is your favorite childhood memory?
Performing at the special Girl Scout cabin in San Francisco.

3. Describe your dream vacation.
A comfortable rental, with a porch that overlooks the ocean, wifi, a housekeeper, and close to somewhere that will serve us 3  meals a day.  Or any long journey in first class on a plane.

4. Do you see yourself as an optimist, pessimist, or realist? Why?
A realist who sometimes becomes an optimist.

5. What is something you wanted to do as a child, but never got to do.
I wanted to go to summer camp, but my parents could never afford it.

6. What board game do you hate the most?
Mostly I like board games.  I enjoy Monopoly for the first hour and by the second hour I hate it.

7. Describe the worst haircut you ever got.
I've never actually had a BAD haircut.  My hair is naturally wavy and kind of does what it wants to do, no matter how it is cut (though if someone knows how to cut naturally curly hair, that is the best cut).

8. What’s the worst job you ever had?
My very first job, in grammar school, was washing test tubes and slides in a medical office. For someone who was somewhat nauseated by smells and things that were found on slides and test tubes, it was a terrible job!  (Though I did enjoy helping hold frightened patients down when tests were being taken.)

9. What is one thing you want to be remembered for?
Making a small difference in the world.

10. On a scale of 1-10, what is the highest level of pain you’ve ever experienced?
Childbirth, of course, but I wouldn't rate it a 10. More like 6-8, depending on which birth  (Paul was an 8, David was a 6).

11. What fashion trend do you wish would go away?

I hate shirts with cut out shoulders.
(nice for vaccinations, though)

12. What’s the weirdest dream you’ve ever had?
A recent dream where the dream and the "awake" period were confused and when I actually woke up, I was still trying to do what I had been doing in the dream and surprised when the telephone call I was checking on never happened.

13. What are 2 weaknesses you have?
Procrastination and disorganization.  Add "untidy."

14. How would you spend your 100th birthday?
My mother wanted for 10 years or more to be 100.  By the time she got to 100 she had such dementia it didn't mean anything to her.  The last thing I want to be at 100 is alive.

15. What food/drinks would you pack in a picnic basket?
Fried chicken, potato salad, chips, grapes, cookies for dessert, Diet Coke and lots of water.
