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 Musical Maniac




1. Five problems with social media
* people don't feel they need to be polite because they are invisible and they say terrible things they would never say to a person, face to face.
   * politicians use social media to spread lies...unless they are banned from services.
   * face it--it can be a time suck! (But such fun)
   * in long threads people don't take the time to read answers and the same question gets asked over and over and over again.
   * I'm in an "Outlander" group and rarely read it any more because everybody seems to think they know better than the author does how the story should go (or should have gone)

2. A place you would like to live, but have never visited
I wouldn't choose a place to live unless I've visited it.  There are many places where it would be nice to try -- I have lots of friends in Brasil and have never visited (but the weather would kill me).  I'm curious about Iceland, but I certainly am not going to plan to move there without first visiting it.  I could probably live in England or Ireland...but I've visited them so that doesn't count.

3. Someone who fascinates you and why
Rachel Maddow.  Love her or hate her (and we have both in this family) but she does so much research on every topic she discusses, invites guests from the right and from the left to get the truth of what they are saying, gives them plenty of time to make their point, and is probably the newscaster I trust the most.  With all of her strength on line, it was amazing when she confessed her paranoia about needles and her fear of getting a COVID vaccine (which she did--but it was difficult for her).

4. Do you have tattoos? What are they and why?
I have zero interest in having a tattoo anywhere.

5. A book you love, and one you didn't.
I loved David Gerrold's "The Martian Child" a semi autobiographical story about a gay man adopting a young boy (who is now all grown up and a father himself). 


The "Left Behind" series by Tim LaHaye was recommended in glowing reviews by my cousin, who insisted I buy the first TWO books because when I finished the first one I would definitely want to start the second one immediately.  I found it poorly written and filled with so much  blatant religious propaganda, based on The Rapture, that I threw the first book across the room after I was about halfway through it.  I have never been tempted to read any of the others in the series.

6. A fruit you dislike, and why
They must eat a lot more passion fruit in the UK than here, because the Great British Baking Show always has things made to passion fruit.  I tried it once and it was like eating perfume.

7. Two words/phrases that make you laugh
Strawphylactic and Cartudus (which is what my friend's daughter called "tacos" when she was young--she's in her 60s now)

8. A quote you try to live by
"We should all be connected to each other," which is a quote from The Last Session

9. Something you miss
For the whole of 2020, I missed theater...still missing it!

10. Three weird traits you have
* I like to eat peanut butter by the spoonful, right out of the jar
   * I take a nap every afternoon, and have to go to sleep to Netflix reruns of Criminal Minds
I hate feet.  Your feet, my feet, everybody's feet (except baby feet)

11. What you wore today
pjs and a t-shirt.  I put off going to the store until tomorrow because I didn't feel like getting dressed.

12. Word/phrase you use constantly

13. One thing you're excited for
Diana Gabaldon's 9th book in the "Outlander" series, due to be released in November.  Thousands of fans around the world have been suffering through "droughtlander" and we're all salivating about the fact that there is finally a release date!

14. Your feelings on ageism
It is defined as prejudice or discrimination on the grounds of a person's age.  As an old person, I am obviously against it!

15. Three interesting facts about yourself
* I am told that I had a growth on my neck when I was a baby and my godmother took me to church and prayed for me...and the growth disappeared over night.  I can't say that is true or not, but if true, I guess I was a miracle baby.
   * I've been the secretary and/or publicity person for every organization I ever joined.
   * I have seen the movie A Star Is Born (the Judy Garland version) over 100 times.
