Sunday Stealing: Who Are You, Parte Final

Saturday 9 Double Play: Live And Let Die & Good Morning, Heartache


1) "Live and Let Die" was nominated for an Oscar as best song. Do you have a favorite movie song?
"Hopelessly Devoted to You," from Grease, maybe?
2) The latest Bond movie, Skyfall, is crazy successful. Have you seen it/do you want to see it?
No, and not so much. I'm still getting over Octopussy.

3) What do you think makes Bond movies so enduringly popular?
The hot lead actors don't hurt, amongst the female demographic, anyway.

4) Do you have a favorite among the actors who have played "Bond, James Bond?"
I think he's the least popular ever, but Roger Moore is MY James Bond, followed by Pierce Brosnan.

5) Bond orders martinis -- "shaken, not stirred." What's your regular drink order? 
Anything fruity and rum-based, like a Rum Runner or a Mai Tai. And of course my old standby, a perfectly mixed Piña Colada ;)

6) Moving from the bar to breakfast -- do you have a favorite cereal? 
Can't really eat it anymore, but I LURVE Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch!
7) Let's daydream about warm weather. Would you rather swim in a lake, the ocean, or an outdoor pool?
The ocean, and there better be some SCUBA involved, please.

8) Did you get 8 hours' sleep last night?
Um. Ha. No. You must be joshing.

9) What are you wearing on your feet right now?
Slippers that look like boots, and along with my hubs' PJ pants, I wore them all over the place today. Heh.
And, since I missed last week's episode, thanks to our epic power outage:
1) Do you come up with your brightest ideas early in the morning or late at night?
I do my best thinking in the shower, but the time varies. Otherwise, late at night, usually. I am a vampiress, I think?
2) Are you more likely to feel romantic at night or in the morning?
Oh, garsh. At night, 98.6% of the time! ;)

3) Do you shower in the morning, after work or before bed?
Refer yourselves to numero uno, above.

4) Billie Holiday was just 44 when she died. Is there an artist whose early demise surprised and saddened you?
Amy Winehouse. Brittany Murphy. Heath Ledger. And so on...
5) Billie was known as "Lady Day." Do you have a cool nickname? (If not, feel free to give yourself one right now.) 
C'mon, now, how cool is "Smellyann"?! (Feel free to lie to me; flattery will get you places here.)

6) When was the last time you had the blues?
Epic power outages = epic blues, folks. And that's the sad truth.
7) Crazy Sam is eating Trader Joe's Snickerdoodles as she composes this. What's the last snack food you ate?
Wonderful Pistachios are my snacking mainstay du jour.

8) Do you worry about preserving endangered species? Or do you believe in survival of the fittest?
I think "preserving" is the wrong word here, but I'll skip over that. I am an evolutionary biologist by trade and training, so it deeply saddens me to note that a great many, MANY of the more-newly extinct and still-extant endangered species are such because of human intervention. Thus, my answer to that is a resounding, "BOTH!"

9) Would you ever hire a lawyer who runs commercials on TV? Do you know anyone who has?
I would NEVER, but I think I know a folk (hee) or two who have!
Link up here if you wanna play, too! Either way, enjoy your stay and come back tomorrow a double-dose of Sunday Stealing!
