Sunday Stealing: The Oddities

Welcome to Sunday Stealing, the funnest meme around and a big thank you to Bev for the great job she's doing filling Bud's shoes!

This note from Bev:

I found this on a site called "my-bitter-soul" which now appears to be predominately for anime, but has the occasional meme as well.  He says he originally got it from a blog called "All My Answers," which has apparently been deleted.

Okay, sit down and get comfortable...this is a long one!

Freckles & Other Oddities

Do You Have Freckles?  Is the Pope Catholic?  Does a bear use Charmin in the woods?  I have fair freckled Irish/Scot skin that only gets freckle-y-er and/or burnt in the sun.  The standing joke is that I'd have a great tan if I could get my freckles together.

Do You Sleep With Your Closet Doors Open Or Closed?  I don't have closet doors so I guess that's the same as open.

Can You Whistle?
 Not really.  

Did You Wake Up Cranky today?
 No, he got up on his own.  Ha!  Oh, mean me.  Nah.  It was nice and cool this morning so I woke up feeling pretty good.

Zodiac Sign.  Leo or according to the Chinese Zodiac, a dragon.

What Is Your Eye Color?

Take A Vitamin Daily?
 I take several.  I take a multi, magnesium, potassium, C, and mega doses of both D-3 and B-12 due to critical deficiencies.

Do You Sing In The Shower?  Not very often.

What Did You Have For Lunch?
 Chicken noodle soup.

Do You Watch The Olympics?
 I never missed them right up until they started allowing professional athletes compete.  I don't agree with that practice at all. I will still watch once in a while, but I'm not glued to it.

Do You Prefer To Swim In A Pool Or The Ocean?  A pool.  There are sharks in the ocean!!

Bottled Water Or Tap Water?  Bottled to drink, but tap for everything else.

Do You work Better With Or Without Music?  It depends on what I'm working on. If it's something I really need to concentrate on I have to at least turn the music down.

Can You Curl Your Tongue?  Yes. I used to be able to make it into a clover shape, too, but I can't do that any more.

Is There Anything Pink Within 10 Feet Of You?  There's a whole rack of DVD's within 10 feet of me...surely one of them has some pink going on.

Have You Ever Caught A Butterfly?
 Sure.  I was a country kid.  Caught them and kept them in a shoe box or jar overnight (just like lightning bugs) and let them go in the morning.

Are You Easily Influenced By Other People?  Not really.  I'm very independent in my thinking.

Do You Have Strange Dreams?  Sometimes.  The strangest ones seem to occur when I fall asleep sitting up in the recliner.

Do You Like Going On Airplanes?  I love flying...which is not the same as liking to fly on commercial airlines (which I don't love).

Name One Movie That Made You Cry.
 Where the Red Fern Grows.  My kids and I were all bawling...and my son was probably about 13 years old!  There is an old black and white version, which is the one we had, but I didn't find it on YouTube.

Peanuts Or Sunflower Seeds?  Neither, thank you.

If I Handed You A Concert Ticket Right Now, Who Would You Want The Performer To Be?  I would love a ticket to see the Bob Seger concert that is coming up soon at a nearby theater.

Are You A Picky Eater?  No. I was raised not to be.  My dad was very old school and I had to have some of everything that was served (even if I hated it) and I had to finish everything on my plate before I could leave the table.

Are You A Heavy Sleeper?  Yes.  I wake up if my kids or grandkids call or make weird sounds and nothing launches me out of a sound sleep like a dog pacing because it wants out or the sound it makes when it's getting ready to upchuck. Other than those things I'm pretty sure I could sleep through Armageddon.

Do You Fear Thunder / Lightning?  Not unless they are accompanied by a sky that is ripe for tornadoes.

Do You Like Your Music Loud?  Sometimes. It depends on what I'm doing.

Would You Rather Carve Pumpkins Or Wrap Presents?  Carve pumpkins.  I HATE wrapping presents.

What’s The Next Movie You Want To See In Theaters?  I honestly haven't been paying attention this summer.  I don't know what's out or what's coming soon.

Been On The Computer For 5 Hours Straight?  Yes, sadly, I have.

Do You Like Meeting New People?  It depends on the circumstances and the people.  I tend to be introverted and I often find social settings taxing.

What Are Three Things You Did Today?  Dusted, read an entire book, and baby sat our grandson.

What Do You Wear To Bed?  In the summer I wear cute pajama sets.  In colder weather I like fleece-lined leggings and long sleeve t-shirts.

Do You Wear Jeans Or Sweats More?  Jeans

Name Something That Relaxes You.  Playing games on the computer.  It relaxes me so much I often fall asleep while playing (at night).

    1. A collection of short stories based on Charlaine Harris's character, Sookie Stackhouse.

  2. I take mega doses of Vitamin D3 and B12, too.

    1. My whole family does. We have so many cloudy days here that the majority of people are at least somewhat deficient in D3.

  3. I've seen Bob Seger in concert and it was the best concert I've ever been to. That was my answer to that question too.

  4. I absolutely love wrapping presents! I even did it at a local shop during the Christmas season. :)

  5. Aha! It's the Scot's Irish. Yep, I have heard that freckle thing,too. Cute joke about waking up Cranky.
    Armageddon? wow! lol. I used to be able to sleep a lot better until having to quit taking a medicine. Now it's catch as catch can.

  6. Ditto what you said about sleep. What is it, I wonder, that wakes us faster than a pup about to lose his cookies?
    I suck both at carving pumpkins AND wrapping presents.

  7. I've never seen the movie Where the Red Fern Grows and after watching that clip, I don't think I'll look it up. I bawl my head off when animals die in movies. You can kill 100 people, but let one animal die and I'm done.
