Hi! 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 This Side of the Pond



1. What's something you've recently accomplished solo?
What with self-quarantining, I can't think of anything I've accomplished solo.  My best solo accomplishment was taking over as office manager for a medical office that was moving to new quarters  Nobody knew what we were doing and someone had to make the decisions.

2. What's one product you use that never ever fails?
Best Foods Mayonnaise!

3. Have you found your place in the world? Where is it?
I am actually comfortable where I am now.  It took me 15 years to feel "at home" in Davis, but this is now my home

4. Worst movie you ever saw?
The only movie I ever walked out of was Dr. T and the Women.  I worked in ob/gyn too long to enjoy all the problems with that film.

5. What's the last fun thing you did?
Had lunch at Fenton's in Vacaville with friends from the Pinata Group

Fenton's has the best crab salad sandwiches...and great vanilla malts.

6. What's your favorite Italian dish?
I love veal piccata, but never order (or cook) it because it's killing babies.

7. Have you ever been to France? Any desire to visit there, and if so what would site or city would you most want to see?
I've been to France twice.  I wanted to love Paris, but did not.  However, I loved traveling through the south of France, especially Arles, where VanGogh did a lot of his most famous paintings.

8. Have you ever been to Disney, any of the parks at all? Are you a Disney superfan or something less than that? They're open right now so tell us, would you go if you had the time/money/a free trip?
I first went to Disneyland 3 years after it opened.  We then took each of our kids around the time of their 4th-5th birthday and we have taken most of our foreign students to Disneyland.  I have seen enough of Disneyland.  If I get a free trip somewhere, I'd prefer that it NOT be Disneyland.

9. Your favorite place to go when you want to be quiet as a church mouse? Would those who know you well describe you as more church mouse or perhaps more like mighty mouse?
Actually, this house is pretty quiet and if I'm here in my office and don't turn on the TV it's very quiet.  Nobody would ever think of me as mighty mouse.

10. Do you bake your own bread? Last time you had hot out-of-the-oven homemade bread? What's your favorite kind of bread?
I made all of our bread for many years, when the kids were little.  I prefer plain white bread, but have made lots of different kinds of bread.  If I'm buying it in the store, I buy white bread or raisin bread or Killer Dave's bread.  And of course having grown up in San Francisco, I love good sourdough bread.

11. What's something you might say is 'the greatest thing since sliced bread'?
What could possibly be greater than sliced bread?

12. Share with us five little things you're grateful for today. Small blessings. One catch-they all must start with the letter T.
* Television
* Theater
*  Tacos
*  Teddy Bears
*  Tissues*
(*I can't imagine making it through the day without tissues!)

13. Tell us where you were and something about what life was like when you were 20- 21.
I was working for the Physics Department at UC Berkeley, as secretary for 3 professors.  Socially, I was involved in the Newman Center.  Walt and I did a lot of ushering for theatrical performances in San Francisco.

14. What's on the menu at your house this week?
Last night we had pork chops, apple sauce, asparagus, and baked potatoes

15.Something you recently purchased where a coupon was involved? Do you regularly shop with coupons? .
I never think to use coupons and don't buy all that much so I don't regularly shop with coupons.
