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!
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
Fried chicken, potato salad, deviled eggs, chips, fruit of some sort, cookies
3. What flowers are in
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
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
15. Write a haiku
The sky is so blue
The temperatures so hot
I hate summer time
