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. What is the nearest book to you? Your Kindle does not count.
Jon Stewart's "Naked Pictures of Famous People."
2. When was the last time you took a "me" vacation
Not really sure what constitutes a "me vacation." If that is
a trip that I take by myself, I can't remember -- maybe five years or so ago
when I went to Monterey to visit my friend Lynn.
3. How many telephone numbers do you have?
Three. Two land lines (one dedicated for just the internet) and a
cell phone. I don't even know the second land line number and it's
totally superfluous. I guess telephone access is going to change when
Ned and Marta move in here.
4. If you could fix one thing in the public school system, what is the one
thing you would do immediately?
I would say return music and drama to the schools, but Davis has
very good programs for that.
Given the recent news about school lunches, I would say make
certain that every child has access to school lunches, whether their parents
can afford it or not.
5. Are you a big tipper?
Probably bigger than average. Comes from having a son who worked
as a waiter for many years.
6. Do you watch reality shows?
Some. I avoid the mating-and-dating shows. I have never seen
an episode of
The Bachelor or
The Bachelorette, for example.
Would not watch anything about marrying a stranger (remember that gawdawful
show where the goal was to marry a millionaire that you'd never met before?)
But I do enjoy Amazing Race and food network shows
7. Who is your favorite sports team player?
My granddaughter, who plays softball (age 11)
8. If you could travel in a spaceship to any planet, which planet would you
like to visit and why?
I'm not that adventurous. I don't even want to go to the
moon...and men have BEEN there before.
9. When was the last time you sat in a church?
A friend's funeral a few weeks ago.
10. Are there any aspects of blogging that annoy you?
Not really. I truly love it. But on nights when I have
absolutely NOTHING to write, it bothers me that I feel the need to write
something. Saturday 9 and Sunday Stealing I think of as my "days
11. When someone follows you on their blog or subscribes to your Facebook
page, do you automatically follow and subscribe back?
I never know if someone follows Funny the World, but if someone follows
me on Facebook I often follow back, though now that I have over 1,000 people
I follow I often don't follow someone unless I recognize their name, or know
some of the same people.
