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 Big Magic



1. Whatís the best beach or lake day you can remember?
I haven't spent much time at the beach or lake.  The only time I remember well is when I was babysitting for some kids and went with the family to Lake Tahoe.  We had a good time on the beach there.

2. Describe your ideal picnic lunch
Fried chicken, potato salad, deviled eggs, chips, fruit of some sort, cookies

3. What flowers are in your bouquet?
Red roses, daisies, carnations.

4. Silly ways to pass the time during a snowstorm
We don't have snowstorms here, but if I needed a way to pass the time it wouldn't be silly, it would be reading or watching TV.

5. The most beautiful house youíve ever visited.
I haven't been to a lot of "beautiful houses," but perhaps the home of the late John Vlahos, president of The Lamplighters Theater Company was one of the nicest.  (Presumably his wife still lives there)

6. Best place you ever dined.
I don't remember the name of it now -- and it closed many years ago -- but it was a French restaurant in San Francisco.  The service was so personal that someone escorted you to the bathroom if you needed to go...and the food was wonderful.

7. How many layers to your ice cream sandwich
Just one layer of vanilla ice cream between two chocolate cookies

8. Pretty things which are faux patent leather
I can't even think of anything which is faux patent leather.

9. What is the best way to eat chocolate.
It has to be milk chocolate and the best way is to let it melt on your tongue.

10. Describe your unicornís special magic
I don't think of a unicorn as "magic"; I'd just like to have one in my yard to pet and feed. (I have zero fantasy in my brain!)

11. All the fruits in your fruit salad
Strawberries, bananas, pineapple, peaches

12. Describe the soil, grass, trees, flowers and rocks in your magical forest).
Here we go with "magic" again.  One of the most memorable forests I ever visited was in Alaska, where it was so full of so many different kinds of mushrooms that the smell was mushroom-y.  The mushrooms grew in the ground, on fallen branches of trees and on the trees themselves and were in all sorts of colors from plain tan to bright red.  Add some fields of flowers, probably roses and daisies, and maybe a few Hobbit holes that would be the perfect magical forest for me.

13. The lyrics which move you the most are:
In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

14. What are the best sauces in the world?
Hollandaise, for eggs Benedict.  I don't have a lot of sauces on other foods, or enough that I have a "favorite."  Some are good, some less good.  I like sauces made with coconut milk.  And Ned makes the best salad dressing.

15. Write a haiku about nature
The sky is so blue
The temperatures so hot
I hate summer time
