Sunday Stealing--Not Quite 100 Questions


Join us here.

1.What's your favorite TV channel to watch in the middle of the night?

I am rarely up in the middle of the night and cut the cord several years ago.  Probably Peacock, which is NBC Streaming, because I can watch ANY episode of the original Law and Order any day, any time.

2.Which decade do you feel the most special connection to and why?

Probably the 70s.  I was 8 in 1970 and spent my childhood on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, mostly (did a stint in CT in 6th grade).  It was a great place to grow up, we lived in a small town. 

3.What is your favorite oldie/classic rock song?

Melissa, by the The Allman Brothers Band.   



 Closely followed by Thin Lizzy’s The Boys are Back in Town.


 

4.What Disney villain are you the most like and why?

I’ve never been the villain type, so I literally can’t answer this one.

5.Have you ever been a girl scout/boy scout?

I spent a hellish year in Connecticut in 6th grade.  I had zero friends (not uncommon, we moved a LOT even when we lived in Mississippi), but also was viciously bullied for the way I spoke (my southern drawl).  My mom tried all sorts of things to get me “involved”, Girl Scouts being one of them.  It didn’t work, those little wenches made fun of me too.   Finally, Mom tried riding lessons, and I fell in love with horses, and no longer cared about the evil bullies.  My parents always wanted to live in small towns.  If we had lived closer to town, I would have fit right in amongst the rest of the Navy and Navy-Adjacent shipyard brats.  But nooooooooooooo.  It's all good though--ultimately, all that moving around was a good thing.

6.If you were traveling to another continent would you rather fly or take a boat?

I swear, if I ever DO go to Europe, I’m flying business class, damn the cost.  Flying is miserable, even without the spectre of COVID.

7. What are three of your favorite dog names of all time?

Maddie, Ginger, and Raven. 

8. How do you feel when you see a rainbow?

Hopeful

9. If you were in the Land of Oz would you want to live there or go home?

Home.  Definitely.  All that singing and those bright colors.  Way too overwhelming.  And the flying monkeys.  Just no.

10. What is the first word that comes to mind when you see the word:

I thought this would be more fun with pictures, so I'm gonna be me and do that.  Here we go....

  1. Another L&O fan(atic). My cat Rey's full name is Detective Reynaldo Curtis.

    I was bullied in Girl Scouts, too ... by my sister. A year older than me, she hated that we were in the same troop. She was very competitive. At the time, I was angry at my mother for not fixing it. Now I feel sorry for my mom. It must be hard to accept your precious oldest daughter is a little bit psycho.

  3. I like the pictures for the list! Yay! I was 7 in 1970, so not so far behind you. I think many of us are close in age.

  4. The pictures were fun for the word associations. I like that you're the third one who thought the same way for Clash. I think it's what comes to mind for those of us of a certain age (I was 6 in 1970).

I hate the whole moderating thing, so I'm going to try Captcha instead. We'll see. Let me know if you hate it.
