Saturday 9: Treat You Better
Saturday 9: Unbreak My Heart

Sunday Stealing: Friday Questions On A Sunday

Hi kids! Welcome back! I had grand intentions this weekend of doing both Saturday 9 and Sunday Stealing on time, if not early. But then I got this awful migraine, and Hubs has been plowing me with nauseating migraine medicine, medicine to control that nausea, and Benadryl to round out the cocktail. The result? Five naps this weekend. Doesn't much make for promptness! But I'm here now, and that's what counts.

Link up here if you want to play along this weekend!


1. Have you ever tried to learn (or re-learn) a foreign language as an adult? Which one? What worked for you?

Funny you should ask. Just this past August, my two daughters and I started learning Latin. It's going really well! I love learning languages.

2. Do you donate blood? Do you know your blood type?

I'm type O-negative, the universal donor. I try to donate as much as possible, but that's been on hold as long as I've been unwell (since May 2015), because we don't know exactly what's wrong with me. Better safe than sorry.

3. Have you ever been in a play or musical?

I was in a few plays in elementary school, including the scene-stealing Caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland I recently mentioned, but my stepmother intentionally took my confidence away after that. I've never performed since.

4. Do you use certain text or ring tones for specific people? Who gets their own? Or do you just use the default on your phone?
Hubs and each of the kids have their own ringtones, and then the default ringtone is a silly song with my name in it. I got a new phone in June and have yet to work on assigning a different text tone to each person, though.

5. When did you get your first digital camera? Do you still shoot on actual film, or all digital now?

My first digital camera was a Kodak EasyShare dinosaur, in about 2003. I don't do film anymore; I like to take far too many snaps with my Nikon. It'd be extremely expensive to develop all those only to have a tenth turn out the way I'd want!

6. What do you think someone else would say the most daring thing you’ve done is?
Everybody I know thought I was insane to run off and elope with a guy who I'd just met two months earlier on the internet! That was just about 18 years ago, and here we still are! Ha. Hubs and I still joke about my sister calling him an axe murderer.

7. Do you talk with your hands?

More than if I were deaf and Italian.

8. Given the choice in a restaurant – would you go with a booth or table (or bar!!!) for seating?

I like sitting belly up to the bar when I'm with Hubs or a friend, since you tend to get much more personalized service. Unless it's super crowded, and then that shit sucks. I hate sitting at a booth unless I have to, though, because I like to be able to adjust my chair to the perfect distance from the table. Y'all know.

9. What kind of milk did you drink, growing up? And now?

I don't know, whole milk as a kid? No clue. My three teenagers all still drink whole milk. The ortho doc said that probably paid a big part in why Sophia's badly broken wrist healed so beautifully that it didn't looked like it had never even been broken a few years ago. Now I'm extremely lactose intolerant. Bad things happen if I drink milk. Bad things!

10. How do you keep track of all your passwords? Do you make your passwords super complicated and change them often, or use the same ones over and over?
I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

11. Are you a note taker?

Duh. I'm Type-A, so I think it's the law.

12. Do you remember what your first social media posting (or status update) was on Facebook or Twitter – without looking it up? What was it?
No, I do not. I was on MySpace first, and then joined Facebook as soon as I heard about it. My husband thought both were silly and used to call it "MyFace." Hehe.

13. Do you have a “power” song?

I don't know that one would call it a "power song," but I can't hear "Kiss" by Prince without having to get up and perform like a damn diva.

14. Do you have an eclectic mug collection, or is your stuff all matchy-matchy?

We have a few eclectic mugs in our collection, but a lot of what we have is from my FiestaWare. It's like a Homer Laughlin warehouse in here!

15. Do you have a junk drawer in your house/garage/at work/wherever?

Of course! It's the drawer next to the fridge.

16. Do you ever get the urge to watch a favorite scene from a movie, and watch just that scene?

Nope. Okay, maybe...

17. Have you ever woken up and felt guilty from a dream you had, or, mad at someone else for something they did in the dream?

Oh yeah. I wake up angry at my husband for something my dream husband did, all the time! At least once a week. My dreams are so vivid, so when something odd happens, I wake up extremely confused.

18.  How old were you when you took your first commercial flight? To where did you fly?

I was five years old when I took my first solo flight, from Newark, New Jersey, to Syracuse, New York. I don't remember my first flight. I was raised both swimming and flying. Odd for me to think that not everyone did those things as kids.

19. Are you good at keeping track of your things – or do you easily misplace them? Do you ever leave anything behind when you travel?
Image result for losing things funny
I can keep track of my belongings really well. It's when one of the four other people walk away with my things and don't remember to return them that things go downhill. I do, however, tend to always forget things when I leave the house and/or leave my belongings behind when I travel. Hate that!

20. Is there any place you go where time seems to stand still? What is it about that place that makes it that way?

When I step onto a beach, especially one with big waves, it's like I'm transported back in time to my childhood. I grew up on the giant, tumbling waves at the Jersey Shore, and it's like I'm still a kid whenever I get the chance to dig my toes in the sand and splash in the waves. Being in the water from time to time is vital for me. I think I was a mermaid in a past life.
Well, that was fun, but now I've got to get back into my lesson planning for the upcoming school week. See you soon!
