Sunday Stealing: Feisty Twenty-Five Meme

Link up here if you're stealing today, too!

I'm glad to take part this week. I had last week's almost finished when my computer shut down in the middle of it, and I was so frustrated by that, I didn't blahg all the rest of the week.

Wah, wah, wah. Anyway. So. Let's go!


Cheers to all of us thieves!!! 

Feisty Twenty-five

Do you like to see it snowing outside?

Listen, I live so far south in Florida I'm almost to Key Largo. If I saw it snowing out my window, I would damn near blow a gasket!

Do you tell your family you love them enough?

I tell them all the time! I hope that my actions show it, too. I adore these people who family with me!

Do you like getting jewelry or do you not wear any?

I do like getting jewelry, but it doesn't have to be super blingy to win my favor. I don't like tacky and huge so much as... unusual. I'm a big fan of jewelry from the Novica website.

Do you watch a lot of NFL football?


Have you ever used the word ‘lame’?

I say lame all the time... so? This meme kind of is, speaking of which...

Are you/were you in a band? If so, what was your band name?

No. But I love to come up with funny band names, a la Dave Barry. Does that count?

When is the last time you went to the doctor?

Shit. I live at the doctor. I don't think I went this WEEK, though? Which would be a first. Saturday may have been my last visit.

Do you own any shirts with a peace symbol on it?

In college, I bought a shirt tie-dyed in Jamaican flag colors, with peace signs and MLK on it. My racist pig of a father threw it out when he found it. Asshat.

Would you ever go to Japan?

Abso-freaking-lutely! After Australia, Japan is second on my wishlist of places to visit!

What was the last thing you went to Walmart for?

Milk, probably, though I avoid the place like the plague on society that it is!

Ever gotten in a car accident?

Yeah, a few. The worst was when my dad was driving and I was sleeping, and we were hit in the middle of the night by a drunk driver. It was pretty horrible. We didn't end up pressing charges, though I'm sure he got in a serious amount of trouble nonetheless!

Have you ever been in a choir?

I was in choir all through school. I'd love to be in one now, but I'm I don't have the confidence to audition. Maybe I'll work on that this year.

Do you like the color of your eyes? If not, what color would you want them?

They're brown with hard-to-see rings of green around the brown. My sister and grandfather have had green eyes... I wish I did, too.

When was the last time you went ice skating?

It's probably been about 20 years... if not 30! I really can't remember.

Do you like to brush your teeth?

I do, but I take out all my stress on them. I brush way too hard, and it's eroding my poor gums. It's a problem!

Have you ever had a surgery?


I had three c-sections to get our four babies out, then a hysterectomy and then, after I ballooned up to 341.3 lbs, I had gastric bypass surgery. This is me now, six years later.

Do you look older or younger than you actually are?

I don't know. You decide; I'll be 40 this year.

When is the next time you’ll be up on stage?

Never, if I can help it!

Where did you spend your last birthday?


We went to the Melting Pot for my birthday, Hubs' and oldest daughter Chloë's birthday too!

What is the last show that you watched a full episode of?

I watched at least three hours' worth of back-to-back Reba episodes while knitting this evening. Silly.

Do you know anyone who lives in Utah?

I have one or two Facebook friends up there, whom I have never met in person. Maybe one day!

Is there anything you need to work on doing soon?

2016 is the year of decluttering this crap, and we are working on it a little bit every day. I need to do today's 'little bit.'

Do your feelings get hurt easily?

Oh, God, yes. I am HIGHLY sensitive. Ridiculously so. It's irksome, but there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it, so eh!

Do you, or do you know someone who has taken karate lessons?


My youngest two, Sophia and Jack, took lessons this past Autumn. Both hated it.

Were you ever a boy or girl scout?

I was a Brownie, and big Sis was whatever the next step up was back in the early 80s. Hubs was a Cub Scout. All of our kids used to do Scouting, but none do now. I know the oldest wants to get back in, so I will be pursuing that soon.

Well! It looks like I reached the end of one, finally. Yay!

Thanks for stopping by. ;)
