15 January 2017

We found this gem from a blogger named Tyfordd from the blog Tyfordd's Gallery. She states she was tagged by her good “friendo” but does not mention who. We mean unless "friendo" is an actual name. It is both strange and exciting to find a blog that still gets tagged to do random questions. This was done in August. The host of the blog is Deviantart that used to be something else, but it is that site that calls blogs “journals”. THE ugliest layout (and always has been) and why these folks never found Word Press or Blogger is beyond me. It is impossible to figure out whether you are dealing with a name or the blog's journal's name. In this post, they have 10 rules to do these questions. We won’t share them because we hate freakin’ rules. About last week: I did not make it to all of your posts, but I do owe all of you an apology. I really thought that last week’s questions would be a little different. It was great until I tried to play. Man, was that dumb. Anyway, we are back with a more traditional approach. Also, thanks for letting me know you read this. Hey, you never know unless you ask. As far as the name goes, it actually was the title of this exercise. I couldn't really figure it all out. But hey, what else is new?

Sunday Stealing: The Very Forceful Questions

1. Do you have/have you had any pets?

Polly in the back, Lizzie in the front

2. Do you play video games? If so, do you have a favorite video game series?
Word with Friends and 100! Puzzles (a tetris-like game).

3. Any unpopular opinions on anything?
Well, a portion of the country could say that my opinions on our about-to-be president are not popular, but I share them with a majority of the country, so I don't know how unpopular they really are.

4. Do you have a favorite gem? If yes, has anyone ever bought you jewelry with that gem?
I don't have a favorite, but a family friend bought me an amethyst, which is my birthstone, and a friend once bought me an opal, which was beautiful (and of course there was the diamond in my engagement ring, which belonged to Walt's grandmother, so technically speaking he didn't buy it for me)

5. Favorite story genres?
I seem to read more crime stories than any other (Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, Tess Gerritsen, David Baldacci, etc.)

6. What was once a secret that you can now share? (The original question was "What kind of fruit do you hate" which is type of question that I think "who cares?" so I just change them.)
There's that whole story of my friend's affair, which I helped her manage and cover up, much to my later regret.  But you don't want to hear that story.  It ultimately ended our friendship.

7. Do you like reading?
I'm a readin' fool.

8. What time is it for you now, what are you usually doing at this time of the day?
It is nearly noon and I am usually doing...this.  Sitting at the computer.

9. What character on TV or in film is most similar to you? You can go with looks or personality. Or you can make a quip and go to the next question.
In my mind's eye, I have always been the auburn-haired Maureen O'Hara of The Quiet Man, running across the emerald hills of Ireland.  In real life I'm more Roseanne Barr of Roseanne.

10. What's something weird you wanna do? It cannot be weirder than Mr. Watermelonhead.
I want to ride a wild stallion bareback along the beach of a deserted island, like Alec Ramsey of The Black Stallion.  As an obese nearly 74 year old who has only been on a horse once or twice, I think that's not likely to happen.

11. Have you ever accomplished a New Years Resolution?
No, because I never make any,.

12. Is there any music artist you look up to?
Uh...Steve Schalchlin?

13. Are you allergic to anything? If yes, what?
Not that I have found yet.  Though maybe those sneezing spells say something different...

14. When was the last time you took a swim? Who else was with you?
Char and I swam together in a swimming pool at the top of a hotel in Italy back in 2009.

15. Would you rather have the ability to sleep for as long as you want, or have the ability to never have to sleep?
In my younger days I would say never have to sleep, but these days I'm enjoying my sleep and have nothing special to get up for.


I swear, you can buy ANYTHING these days!

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
Remember to sign your name in the "Name" box or else you will show up as "anonymous"
(unless you want to be anonymous, that is!)
