Hey, guys! Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. I'm a little late getting to it today, because my Xolair for my Mast Cell Activation Disorder (MCAD) has basically worn off and I'm not getting the next dose until this coming Thursday. What that means is I'm having allergic reactions to everything, and sometimes anaphylaxis to just... breathing, basically? It's frustrating and exhausting. Xolair is a miracle worker for me; I just wish I could either get more, or get it more frequently, or it lasted longer... Anyway.
Starting into today's Sunday Stealing post: Three Wishes, Part 2. Link up here to play along today! Hopefully it'll be a good one, but trusting Bev, I'm sure it will be! Let's go:
16.) What is your favorite wild animal?
I go back and forth between mako sharks and the majestic African elephant. Today I'm picking the latter; I've loved them longer.
17.) Name 3 of your favorite childhood shows:
I adored Three's Company and miss John Ritter dearly ♥
I had a major crush on Bo and Luke Duke (especially the blond one, but I forget which is which now) of Dukes of Hazzard
I watched a lot of The Jeffersons back then. My dad wasn't a huge fan and called them derogatory terms. That made me realize far more about my dad than George and Weezie.
18.) If you could live as a character in a movie who would it be?
I would be the truly badass Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games.
19.) Favorite vegetable?
Hmm. That's a tough one; I love veggies! I think it might be onions, particularly when they're sautéed and nicely caramelized. This, followed by potatoes prepared any kinda away, followed by broccoli... Mmmm.
20.) Favorite Fruit?
Another hard one, because I love all the fruits! Except mangoes. I'm really not a mango fan, too much. I think it's a tie between bananas, which come with their own packaging, and you can easily take them with you on the go without getting messy the whole time, and then just compost their peels when you're finished. Orrrrrr...
... or lemons, because I like to put that shit on everything!
21.) If you had a dragon what would you name it?
Welp, going by this one, I'd go with Sapphire Flame. Not the last part, because it's kinda dumb, but she'd be "The Regal," which is okay, too. It's really not something I think about too often.
22.) What do you put on hot dogs?
These are vegan Bánh Mì "hot dogs," which I'm not a big fan of, anyway. I might try these. But as far as replacing real meat hot dogs, which I haven't eaten since 1995, with a plant-based alternative, I don't really have a huge interest in doing that.
23.) Do you play online games?
I play Words With Friends on my phone, more or less daily. That's about it for me.
24.) What's your favorite way to get inspired?
This may sound kooky, but I've been reading a lot about gems and rocks and crystals, along with my practicing of yoga and my studies of Eastern religions like Hinduism and Buddhism. I was given a free Bloodstone, aka Heliotrope, from Sivana East, with a discount code. (Let me know if you're interested in a $25 off code; I am not an affiliate, and it would not be a referral link for me to gain something from you.) I like to hold my Bloodstone and roll it around in my hand, in order to gain courage and confidence to do those things I'm invested in right now.
25.) Do you have a middle name?
Yeah. It's Ann. I freakin' hate it. It's dreadfully boring.
26.) If you had to order from a kid's menu, what would you get?
Hmm, I don't know, there aren't a whole lot of choices, but that grilled PB&B sounds pretty good!
27.) Do you speak any other languages?
I speak English quite well. I speak Spanish near-fluently, although the more I use it, listen to others use it, and read it, the more I realized I have so much yet to learn. I am learning Latin with Chloë and Sophia this year. I understand and speak a little Italian, but I'm hoping to convince Sophie to study Italian with me next year. I also understand, speak, and read a bit of French. I know some American Sign Language. I have learned some Japanese and also some German. I think there is more, but I can't think of it right now. I guess I am not the typical American, and I like it that way.
28.) Do you use Twitter?
Sometimes I do, but I rarely go to the actual Twitter website to post a tweet. Most of my tweets come from sharing through other sites or apps like Instagram or Swarm.
29.) Do you go onto YouTube?
First of all, I have a love/hate relationship with YouTube, because as a homeschool mom, it kinda irks me that my kids have probably learned more from YT than they ever have from me. Second of all, yeah. I'm not on it a super lot, but when I am, I usually send videos of songs I love to the big (42", so not enormous, but bigger than my desktop monitor) screen TV in the living room, here, via Chromecast. Gawd, I love my Chromecast. It's great for educational purposes, too!
30.) Do you play Angry Birds?
Angry Birds? Huh? Is that even still a thing people do? I did it for, like, five minutes back in the day. So, no.
Okay. Time to give Jack his spelling final test that he missed on Friday, for whatever reason. Ciao, y'all!
