Sunday Stealing: The Patriotic Meme


Link up here if you're playing along today!

1. Are you "proud to be an American"?

Of course I am... and grateful!

2. Favorite Founding Father?

3. Favorite president?

4. Biggest "Patriotic Moment"?

I don't even know how to properly answer this one, sorry! Pass.

5. Favorite patriotic song?

6. Favorite American cuisine?

Funny story: the first time I made a lattice-top apple pie was for my dad's birthday. I was proud of my efforts; when I held up the pie, somewhat vertically, so Dad could take a picture of my creation, all the liquidy insides slid out of the pie and splattered all over the floor in front of us. Oh, how we laughed...!!!

7. Happiest political moment of your life?

I feel a bit differently now, but when Obama was first elected President in 2008, I was so excited and happy for 'Murica, I cried and cried...!

8. Best fireworks display you've ever seen?

This is Panama City Beach (aka the "redneck riviera"), but in Panama City in 2002, we went downtown to the pier to watch the fireworks show. It was A-MA-ZING! Best show EVER, and since Independence Day is by far my favorite holiday, that is saying something. They put on a really good show, with great fireworks set in time to awesome music. I loved it. Oh, and then I backed into someone's car. Didn't love that.

9. America's gift to the world?


10. Favorite Bill of Rights right?

Freedom of Speech. I'm with Voltaire on this one.

11. Favorite American Holiday?

I love me some Independence Day! ;)

12. Favorite D.C. monument?

I'm not sure. And not because it's so phallic, but because it's so iconic, it's a toss-up between Washington and Lincoln.

13. Your dream for America's future?

I don't dream for America's future. I dream for the future of the Earth, of mankind as a whole, and that of my own family. Is that a total cop-out?!

Welp, thanks for stopping by!
