Sunday Stealing is a blog that provides a service to bloggers by hosting a weekly meme bloggers can participate in for fun and to find great blogs.  The meme is stolen and adapted from other blogs but the original blog the meme was taken from is always credited.  This weeks meme is from the blog MY RANDOM RANDOMNESS.  To participate in Sunday Stealing go to

How did you choose your baby's or pet's names?  I chose the 1st one because it reminded me of something when I heard that name.

Have you ever been fishing?  One of my grandfather's was a commercial fisherman. Can you say catfish y'all?

Have you ever had your national flag painted on your face? No, I will just stick with flag shirts.

What was the last social faux pas you made?  Probably interrupting someone.

What makes you nostalgic?  The music from the 70's and 80's they play in the grocery stores here.  We always moved a lot so I always know exactly how old I was and where we lived and what year the song was a hit.

What's the scariest thing you have ever done?  I picked up a hitch hiker one time and it turned out he had escaped from the small town policeman.  I only had stopped because at first I thought it was someone walking I knew.  Fortunately, they just wanted a ride home.  I went back to my little town and the whole town was turned upside down looking for them.  I told the policeman I gave them a ride home. It was either drive them home or be abandoned on a dark country road without my car....

What fairy tale character would you most associate with?  Rapunzel

How much do you tend to swear in public?  I try not to swear in public as I feel swearing shows a lack of imagination in vocabulary.

If you ruled your own country, who would you get to write your national anthem.  I could write the words myself.

Who is the most intelligent person you know?  The older you get, the less intelligent everyone seems.

What is the worst piece of advice anyone has ever given you?  Dr. Phil says people only treat you how you LET them treat you.  Well Dr. Phil, you have to choose your battles.

If you had to describe yourself as a flavor, what would it be?  I couldn't be described as one flavor.

If you had to describe yourself as a car and/or an animal what would it be?  Fortunately i don't have to describe my self as a car or an animal.

Do you think laughing at some one's misfortune is wrong?  I think there is a little of Schadenfreude in everybody.

If a loved one was to serenade you what song would you most like them to sing?  I used to be frequently serenaded by the song Mama from the movie Soul Food.

Would you ever let your parents pick a partner for you?  ha ha

Have you ever tried spam? (the meat/food kind)  Fried spam usually eaten with eggs.  Great for keeping around "just in case", as in just in case there's a tornado, ice storm, snow, national disaster, or a hungry man in the house.

the end.

  1. Ha. We think alike on the spam. I call it my apocalypse food.

  2. Schadenfreude is one of my favorite words! Thank you for using, and using it correctly.

    My dad used to say the very same thing you did about swearing when I was profane as a kid. I think part of him was actually disappointed when I became a professional writer and proved him wrong.

    1. well i'm just glad that spell check knew how to spell Schadenfreude....!
      aw c'mon you know it just gets boring hearing sh!t or f@ck all the time....!

  4. Great answers--especially about the Dr. Phil thing.

    1. That makes me feel good, that somebody can relate!

  5. Wow, the hitch hiker story is scary. I think that would be kind of fun to fish with a commercial fisherman--at least to try it. Someone else mentioned keeping Spam for the apocalypse--I agree.

    1. Actually according to a novel about wwII, Spam is supposed to taste better then regular canned ham, and the American Soldiers gave it to hungry people in Europe, who were amazed by it. But then there are the bad stories of rotten spam in Vietnam war? I guess they got some bad batches or something.

  6. I'm always interrupting people. I hate that I do that.

  7. You were a brave soul... picking up a hitchhiker, and a criminal at that lol, WOW! That's some to remember ")

    1. Thank you Sir Nick! And I will never pick up a hitch hiker again. They can walk!

  8. I would rather die in the apocalypse, than eat spam. Really! Thanks for visiting.
