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!


Winter questions stolen from Swap


    How do you get past the gray skies during winter?

I don't "get past" them. I enjoy them!

    Do you like snow? Why or why not?

I have never lived in snow; I've only visited snow.  To visit snow is very nice, because I can sit inside and look at it and don't have to deal with it.  I suspect that if I actually lived in a place where snow was normal, I would very quickly lose  the "romance" of it!

    What are your favorite activities to do during the winter?

Well, as above, we don't live where there is real "winter."  Winter is a bit colder than summer, but there is nothing that I specifically do in winter that I don't do all the rest of the year, except dress warmer.

    What does a perfect winter day look like to you?

Rain.  No wind, no heavy rain, but a nice steady rain that I can sit and look at, but not heavy enough that I want to cover up when I go out in it.  (I don't ever use an umbrella)  Heavy enough that I can watch it from the chair where I am reading a book.

    What are your favorite meals/food you enjoy eating during the winter?

There's winter food?  I guess I make soup more in winter but I can't think of anything specifically "winter" unless it's the Christmas turkey

    What is your favorite winter holiday and why?

How many winter holidays are there?  I think of Thanksgiving as a "fall" holiday and Valentine's day as a "spring" holiday, so that leaves only Christmas and Martin Luther King's birthday, and I guess of those two, I prefer Christmas.

Of course there are also some special January holidays like National Rubber Duckie day (Jan 13), Penguin Awareness Day (Jan 20), Measure Your Feet Day (Jan 23), Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day (Jan 27) and National Kazoo Day (Jan 28).  Among other days.

    What is your favorite pizza flavor and toppings.

Sausage and mushroom.  But I really pretty much like most toppings, except maybe bell peppers.  I even like Hawaiian pizza.

    What are some items in your daily bag/backpack.

A huge credit card holder that was not what I expected, but it has so many slots for cards, I also use it as a wallet, for paper money.  There is also a pkg of tissues, some Tums, some cough drops, a brush. a napkin from Nice (France) that Jeri bought me when I needed a cloth to wipe the sweat off my face, and my cell phone.

    Your favorite snacks.

Peanuts, peanut butter by the spoonful, ice cream, cookies, chips

    Some foreign countries that you would like to visit

South Africa or Kenya.  But that ain't gonna happen now. The body (and the husband) says no.

    What things remind you of home

The bark of a yappy dog. 

    If you have one, some items from your Amazon Wishlist

Just a bunch of books.

    What was your favorite Christmas gift?

Ever?  Probably the year Walt bought tickets to Book of Mormon for the two of us.  There were also a few years over my lifetime (starting at age 10) when I received a new camera for Christmas.  And then there was the year Jeri made a dozen characters from Gilbert & Sullivan shows out of eggs. We still have most of them, I believe.  (hmmm....I wonder where they are...?)
