Sunday Stealing 

Link up with the gang here if you're playing along - even late, like me!

26. Do you like someone?

I refuse to answer this question on the grounds that I'm not 13.

27. The last song you listened to?

"What's Up?" by Four Non-Blondes

28. What time of day were you born?

I scarcely remember being born, and why should you care?

29. What’s your favorite number?

64, always has been

30. Where did you live in 1987?

Baldwinsville, New York

31. Are you jealous of anyone?

Yeah, hot mamas who can kick out a bunch of babies and still have a flat tummy without surgery.

32. Is anyone jealous of you?

No one ought to be.

33. Where were you when 9/11 happened?

In the hospital, four days after my first was born via emergency Cesarean. She was still in the NICU for another week or so after that. It was a rough time for us.

34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?

I get pissed, man. Don't you?

35. Do you consider yourself kind?

I try very hard to be. Sometimes I falter, but I keep trying.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?

Maybe my shoulder, I don't know. I doubt I ever will; it's just not me.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?

I used to be much more fluent in Spanish, pero he perdido mucho... I'd love to be fluent in many languages, like so many Europeans. French, Italian, German... and Japanese.

38. Would you move for the person you loved?

In a heartbeat, without a doubt. Wherever he wants to go, I'll go.

39. Are you touchy-feely?

Yeah, pretty much.

40. What’s your life motto?

It has always been, "If you want something done right the first time, you've got to do it yourself." I'm thinking of changing it, though.

41. Name three things that you have on you at all times?

My iPhone, lip balm, and a pen

42. What’s your favourite town/city?

Miami - my heart belongs there. Although I could easily be persuaded to change it to Venice...

43. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?

Our babysitter's services on Friday night

44. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?

Does it count if I helped my son write a letter to our ex-dog, who we rehomed with a friend of mine this past summer, tonight? They've been writing back and forth. It's pretty cute.

45. Can you change the oil on a car?

I did it a couple of times on my '81 Honda Civic wagon, with a friend. I could never do it on the Odyssey, though.

46. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her?

My very first love was Matthew Buffalo, when we were both five and in kindergarten. I moved away in Grade One and have never heard of him again. I've searched for him online many times!

47. How far back do you know about your ancestry?

Quite a bit. My father's family were a lot of seafaring captains, from Germany. We're Pennsylvania Dutch... my dad's dad was born on the Caribbean island of Saba, where there are a lot of Simmonses (my maiden name). Dad's aunt wrote a historical book about it. It's pretty cool. I'd love to visit Saba with my dad someday. I don't really know that much about my mom's side, which is a shame.

48. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy?

Friday night, when hubs and I did a mystery shop at an upscale steakhouse you've probably heard of. I wore black tuxedo pants and a nubby black-and-white sweater. The pants were much too big. I've shrunk out of everything; they're all falling down now!

49. Does anything hurt on your body right now?

My neck and shoulders have been aching lately. I got some heat wraps from the drug store today, and I wore one while I napped. Seemed to help a bit.

50. Have you been burned by love?

I'm almost 35. I'm guessing almost everyone my age has, haven't they?

Until next time, my dears...
