Let's Talk Travel Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's meme in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.

  Let's Talk Travel Meme 





Ok let’s talk travel, do you like to travel? 

Love it! 

Where have you been?
Bahamas, Ireland, England, all along the East Coast, the left coast - the Bay, the Diego, Hollyweird, Napa; Seattle, Alaska, Canada (eh?), Caribbean, Mexico, Vegas;  I've driven from MA to MI, and from CA to MI (so pretty much cross country - but each time it's been a straight shot, no time for lollygagging)..

Next place you want to go?
Would LOVE to head back to the Emerald Isle.  Trying to figure out what, if anything to do with the boy for his last (HS) spring break.

What is something you MUST take with you when you travel? 

phone. iPad (books).  Everything else, if I forget - there are usually stores!

How do you like to travel? (mode of transportation)
Depends on how far I'm going.  I love a good road trip!  My ultimate vacation is an RV and unlimited time.

With someone, or alone? 

I am so lucky in that I love traveling with my son, but I've also got great friends that I travel well with

Do you dance in your car when there are other people with you?
Sometimes, I do it when I'm by myself.  And other times?  I stop the car, crank it up and get OUT and dance.. LOL

If you're quiet what does it mean?
Could be a multitude of things!  I'm sleeping?  I've got nothing to say?  I'm thinking about the next thing to say? 

Favorite scent? 
The desert - right after it rains

Favorite store?
Right now?  I could really spend a lot at Lowes.  LOL

Say you wanted coffee.. what kind is your favorite? 
The one in my hand right now

Favorite kind of pizza?
Another right now!  Naan bread, pesto and some feta, chicken and onions.  To.  Die.  For..

Do you get embarrassed easily?
BAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAA  do you KNOW me???

 
Do you mind people asking you personal questions?
Nope.  But I've never been as ballsy as my friend KN.  She takes it upon herself to do surveys.  Of the personal kind.  One time on a booze cruise - she wanted to know how many of the men that were there were circumcised. 

You have a tank of gas, $50, and the day off… what do you do?
Summer?  Beach, silly!  Winter?  Oh, I don't know
Favorite tv show?
That's a tough one - it's between Walking Dead and Blacklist.  I love me some James Spader.  He is the sniz-NIT.  But Darryl Dixon - he's the sniznit too.  LOL

Song you turn the volume up all the way to listen to?
Thunderstruck.  LaGrange. 

Something you keep in your car?
Gas.  It's imperative.

 Highlight of your day?
Today?  Going to Costco.  Which may or may not have a casino on the way to and from. 

 Something you do everyday that you wish you didn’t have to do?
Poop.  It really stinks.

 Do you mind if people just show up at your house unannounced?
Nope.  I don't even require a knock.  If you know me, you're my friend?  My door is always open.

What do you do when you disagree with someone?
Shoot them.  Isn't that what the rest of the country seems to think is an acceptable way of solving disagreements? 

Do you enjoy rain?
I don't mind it.  It makes things grow!

Who’s your favorite person in the whole world… besides me?
Duh.... ME!  :)

Not my circus... not my monkeys..

Oh, happy Saturday!  Again with the busy weekends!  There was frost on my windshield yesterday morning - not a fan of that... Not sure I'm ready for winter.  I need to clean my house first.  I've been so busy that I haven't even been able to do that.  Ugh.  I know there are spiderwebs hiding.  I just need to find them.  
Found out this week that baby-daddy (aka putzwit) and the crazy baby-mama are doing foster care.  I'm sorry - but seriously?  You can't raise the kid you're responsible for - but yet you'll raise someone else's???   That just baffles me to no end.  I just keep telling myself "not my circus, not my monkeys"... 
Anyway... on with the Saturday 9!  :)
 

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!


Saturday 9: Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) (2008)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) Are the majority of your friends married or single?Taken - not necessarily married, but taken.
2) Rings are one of the items most frequently pawned. Have you ever visited a pawn shop, either to sell or to buy?I sold some gold once at one, and when were in Vegas we went to the Pawn Stars place.  the Boy picked out a ChumLee magnet for the fridge.  LOL
3) Let's say we want to put a ring on it: What's your ring size? 7 1/2-8
4) Beyonce does commercials for Pepsi. What's the last beverage you drank?I'm drinking coffee right now.  With pumpkin creamer.  It's delightful.
5) Beyonce also has a clothing line. What are you wearing right now?
I got a new nightgown last weekend - it's a short flannel one with long sleeves.  I haven't slept this good in forever.  That and sweatpants.  I'm hot.  You're jealous.  I know..
6) Speaking of clothes, Sam was changing hers this morning when she unintentionally flashed her neighbor. She didn't realize he was working along the fence that runs under her bedroom window. Tell us one of your most embarrassing moments.My whole life is one embarrassing moment after another.  I'm not going to give specifics.  LOL
7)  Rumor has it Beyonce is pregnant again. Coincidentally, Sam needs to check the Babys R Us registry for a shower present. Who will receive the next gift you give?The boy is going to be 18.  EIGHTEEN...  in 14 days.  It'll be him.  I don't know what I'm going to give him yet.
8) But Sam doesn't actually want to go to the shower and is trying to come up a good excuse. Tell us a time you fibbed you told to get out of doing something.
I claimed I was ill one time that I really wasn't.  That's all I can tell you.
9) When did you last go inside the bank and talk to a teller?
I talk to them when I'm in the drive-thru.  Does that count?  I never go in.  I like the comfort of my own vehicle.  LOL

Does pot burn brain cells and make you stupid?

Margaritaville


Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!


Saturday 9: Margaritaville (1977)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) In this song Jimmy sings of "booze in the blender." What do you prepare in your blender?
Duh... BOOZE..
2) As the song opens, Jimmy is sitting on his front porch swing. Describe the front porch of the building you're in right now.
I don't have one.  My house is on a slab, so I just have a step up into the house.
3) Jimmy sings of being able to smell boiling shrimp. Do you prefer your shrimp boiled, glazed or breaded?
Glazed?  That's weird.  Why would you glaze shrimp?  I like a good old down home crawfish boil - my friend Kim does the best, all sorts of hot stuff and everything - and the shrimp - mmmmmmm mmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmm!  Here.  Look for yourself:
 
4) During the song, he mentions his flip flops. Have you put your flip flops and sandals away till spring? Or is it still warm enough to wear them?
Wearing them right now!  Not sure how much longer, but they're a good substitute in the house for slippers LOL
5) Jimmy Buffett had hoped this song would be recorded by Elvis Presley, but The King died before he could perform it. What's the first Elvis song that comes to mind? 
"In the Ghetto"... LOL Especially talking about Jimmy Buffet.  The last show I went to was in Chicago, and we stayed at this crack hotel - there was blood on the walls in the bathroom, no hair driers, drug deals out in the back (pimp daddy was driving a Rolls, too) - just nasty.  And every time we got into the car - I played that song.  LOL
6) Buffett fans are known as Parrotheads. Concert attire for a well-dressed Parrothead often includes a Hawaiian shirt and a foam fin hat. What will you be wearing tonight?
I don't know what I'm doing tonight, but I could find a Parrothead outfit if I needed one.  


7) Loyal Parrotheads paid between $500 and $5000 to see Mr. Buffet at a fundraiser for Barack Obama's 2012 Presidential campaign. What's the most you would pay for a concert ticket?

Depends on who it is.  Where they're at.  I've paid a hundred bucks or so?  Not much more than that.  

8) Jimmy is an outspoken environmentalist and supports causes like ocean conservation, saving the manatees and expanding the Dallas Zoo. What steps do you take to help save the planet? 

I turn in my cans for .10 each.  

9) Uh-oh. When Jimmy and the Coral Reefers played in Wisconsin this past August, more than two dozen concertgoers got tickets for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Do you believe pot should be legalized?

Oh Jesus...  according to the kids in the neighborhood it should be, but seeing as how it makes them stupid beyond belief sometimes?  i think not..

Damn splits..

We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!



Saturday 9: Roar
(recommended by Cat)


If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) The lyrics begin with Katy singing about when she used to "hold her tongue." Tell us about a time when you didn't speak up, but wish you had.
BAAAAAAHAHAHAHA  Me?  NOT speak up?  Don't be silly...

2) The lyrics mention both lions and tigers. In addition to the big cats, the video shows a monkey and an elephant. If we were going to the zoo today, which animal would you want to see first?

The Jackalope

3) Lions and tigers are carnivores. If we were having steak for dinner, would you order it rare, medium or well done?

Medium rare.. and it makes me sad all those times when I was younger and ordered it well done, because I just didn't know any better

4) Lots of photos are snapped at the zoo. Did you take your last picture with a camera or with your phone?
Phone.  I've actually thought of selling my "real" camera because I really don't use it much.  I love it, but it's big and bulky and either I use my phone or the small point & shoot that I have.

5) The "Roar" video takes place in the jungle. The average temperature all year around in the rainforest is a humid 80º. The typical September day in Juneau is 49º, dry and sunny. Which sounds more comfortable?
Oh my 80 and humid sounds like hell...  I'll take 49 dry and sunny any day.  Better for the hot flashes.

6) In her youth, Katy took dance lessons at the local recreation hall in Santa Barbara. Crazy Sam took tap dance lessons as a girl, too. What about you? Were you sent off to dance class? Music lessons? Art class?
LOOK.... just because I couldn't do a split like those other bitches, Cathy Corrigan's Dance Studio kicked me out.  Talk about a failure at a young age...

7) Katy recently passed Justin Bieber as the most followed person on Twitter. What's the last message you re-tweeted?
"20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs.. Now we have no cash, no hope and no jobs.  Please don't let Kevin Bacon die"..

8) Congratulations! You just won the lottery! Do you want it in a lump sum, or would you prefer payments over the next 25 years?
Depends on the amount.  Probably a lump sum - I'd rather earn the interest on it rather than the lottery..

 
9) Did you get 8 hours sleep last night?

Oh yes.... Yes I did

Moral of the story? Don't cut corners.

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!



Saturday 9: All Night Long (All Night)
(because Lia asked for an 80s song)


If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) This music video was produced by Mike Nesmith of The Monkees. Can you name a Monkees song?

Oh, I can name MANY of them!  I'm a Believer... Last Train to Clarksville. the theme to their show..  shall I go on? 

2) The song includes the foreign sounding phrases, "Oh jambali Tom bo li d, say de moi ya," and "Oh, Jambo Jumbo!" Mr. Richie meant to include language indigenous to the Caribbean, but was writing the song under deadline and simply made those phrases up instead. Tell about the most recent time you cheated or "cut corners."
Really?  I try not to do that.  I live in a house where corners were cut, and it shows.  If I cut corners at work?  It shows.  If I cut corners with my kid?  It shows.  Moral of the story?  Don't cut corners. 

3) Richie was a frat boy at college. Kappa Kappa Psi, to be exact. Were you a member of a fraternity or sorority?

You really shouldn't say "frat"...  Would you call your country a "count"?  I was a member of the GDI's.  The Goddamn Independents.  LOL

4) When this song topped the charts (September 1983), Vanessa Williams became the first African American to be crowned as Miss America. Do you watch beauty pageants?

I used to, when I was young and had aspirations of being Miss America, but that was before I realized you had to have a talent, be skinny and able to wear a bikini.  Once I realized that - that shit was all over..

5) Since it's Labor Day weekend, that holiday established to

celebrate the American worker, let's talk about the workplace. Tellers work in a bank, actors work on a stage or a set, auto workers work on an assembly line. How would you describe your workplace?
I work in a cubicle farm. 

6) An estimated 40% of us have dated a coworker. Have you ever had an office romance?

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAHA.... yeah.  Don't try that shit.  It doesn't work. 



7) Labor Day is a big weekend for travel. How did you book your last vacation? (Online, through a travel agent, over the phone ...)
Does anyone use travel agents any more?  I found the cottage on homeaway.com (highly recommend it by the way).. then took it from there!

8) Mother Winters won't wear white again now until next Memorial Day. Sam thinks that's just crazy. Where do you fall in this heated mother/daughter debate?
I think that is just craziness... But in Mother Winter's defense, I do have a pair of "winter white" pants. 

9) When you look at back on Summer 2014, what will you remember?
How much FUN it was.  This has been one of the busiest summers I've had in forever.  Having a house full of kids (kids - to me) was a highlight.  I always said I'd have had 10 kids if given the chance.  Now, I get to do that - just during the summer.  I was the host family coordinator for the local college level baseball team - and found housing for 50 something kids (not all at the same time, thank God!!) - and really just enjoyed the heck out of it.  I had some stay with me as well, and it was just FUN.  And the fact that some of these kids may go on to play in the major leagues?  Just a bonus.  :)
 
Happy Saturday!

There's a reason why I'm single.. LOL




Saturday 9: I Got You, Babe
(recommended by Thank You Great Spirit)


If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) Popular music has produced almost countless groups, but not that many duos. Besides Sonny & Cher, can you name another?Hmmmm, a duo?  Big & Rich, Captain & Tennile (however you spell it)... there are plenty

2)  Hearing this recording from his clock radio is how Bill Murray woke up every morning in Groundhog Day. What woke you up this morning?

I think I had an alarm set for 8:00.  I shut that bitch up LOL .. and then slept until 10:30 or so.  I was a tired bunky

3) When she was growing up, Cher practiced her autograph for when she became a star. Is your signature legible? Or is it more of a scrawl?

It's legit legible.  my son's on the other hand?  not recognizable as his name LOL

4) In addition to show biz, Sonny & Cher had many careers: Sonny was a restauranteur and politician, Cher is an interior designer. Would you like to try your hand at any of those professions?

I'd love to own a bakery/coffee shop.  

5) In 1965, when this song topped the charts, Sonny and Cher were as famous for their wardrobe as for their music. Sonny was fond of tall, heavy-heeled boots while Cher often paired granny dresses with bare feet. What's on your feet right now?

Flip flops.  My standard wear for the summer.  But they can't be the cheap ones, because I have plantar fascitis in my left foot.  I have to wear good ones.  i.e. - not cheap..

6) By 1968, their career crashed. Cher's early attempts as a movie actress failed, their records stopped selling and the IRS came after them for back taxes. Have you ever been audited?

No, but I owe the IRS money for 2 years straight because of mistakes I've made on my taxes.  And for someone that lives paycheck to paycheck?  Not fun.  



7) In 1971 they were on top again with their TV show. But their marriage was coming apart. Sonny said, "For the last 5 years I worried about our career, not about us." Have you ever been guilty of putting career before relationship? 
Relationship?  Career?  I'll let you know when I have either or both..
8) By 1972 they were living separate lives -- in the same house. For the sake of The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, they pretended to be happily married another year and a half. Tell us about a time when you pretended to be happy, but weren't.
With my ex boyfriend - I stayed longer than I should have because my son was happy.  
9) While their separation and divorce were bitter, they resumed their friendship when Cher showed up at the opening of his restaurant in 1976. Have you ever made the first move in repairing a relationship?
More than once.  But a word to the wise?  When you have to put that much effort in repairing a relationship?  It's not worth it.  There's a reason why I've never been married..  I have yet to find anyone worth fighting that hard for. 
 
Happy Saturday :)

From "A Place Of My Own" by L'Empress

 Would you ever cheat on someone if they cheated on you?
Why?  Why bother?  If you're both obviously unhappy - why stay together?  I have never cheated on someone (but I've dated more than one person at a time - don't recommend it, too confusing).  I've been cheated on - and said buh-bye..  And if you know my story, you know about the Putz.  LOL

 Would you ever consider becoming a teacher?

I wanted to be a teacher for the longest time.  I never did it though.  I wonder why..

 Would you ever give a hitch-hiker a ride somewhere?
I have, many moons ago.  Now?  Hells to the naw.

 Would you ever try fasting for a whole week?
What the hell is wrong with you?  WHY would someone give up food for a week?  That's just crazy.  I had a hard enough time with clear liquids before my colonoscopy.  Although I did lose 5 lbs.  Hmmmmmmm

 Would you ever try to quit one of your addictions?
I'm a smoker.  I realized that I've smoked longer than I haven't smoked.  I know I need to quit.  It's just hard dammit.

 Would you ever dye your hair purple?
Sure, why not?  Hair color isn't permanent.

 Would you ever spend $100 for the best tasting hamburger in the world?
I'd have a really hard time justifying that.  But hey - I spent $100 in the casino last night.  How do I justify THAT?  LOL

 Would you rather chew gum off the ground or kill a squirrel?
Gum off the ground is nasty.  So are squirrels.  Die, squirrel die!

 Would you rather play Monopoly or Operation?

Either

 Would you rather eat chocolate or fruity candies?
Um, that's a silly question. 

 Would you rather listen to one CD forever or become deaf?

That's a silly question.  As long as it's a good CD, I'm all good.

 Would you rather be deaf or blind?

Neither.

 Would you rather text or talk on the phone?

Talk on the phone.  Texting is so much effort. 

 Would you rather spend a day with Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus?

Gaga - she'd be way more normal, believe it or not.

 Would you rather learn to play piano or guitar?

Guitar is cool

 Would you rather have a stomach-ache or headache?
Stomach-ache.  Then I'd lose weight, right?

 Would you rather be overly interesting or overly dull?

You can never be too interesting!

 Would you rather be too loud or too quiet?

I come from the Loud Family, so that's a no-brainer!

Saturday 9: Mine Would Be You (recommended by Kathy W) <--- b="" hey="" me="" nbsp="" s="" that="">


Sheeeeeeees baaaaaaaaack!  What a crazy busy summer this has been!  I have been so busy between baseball, baseball, vacation and more baseball that I haven't had much time for anything else.  My lawn is dead, the weeds started taking over, and I just had my hair colored today to get rid of the over 2" of gray creeping in.  
I am SO excited that the Ice Bucket Challenge has taken flight and gone viral.  ALS is a horrible disease, and there needs to be more research and they've certainly gotten the funding for that in the past month!  While I am still estranged (who made up that word anyway?) from my brother and his family, I still think of them often, and wish nothing that the best for them.  I hope that it helps knowing that some day a cure will be found.  I've reached out to my sister in law, and hope some day that we can sit down over a cup of coffee and talk.  
I'm just heartbroken about Robin Williams.  Not sure what else to say.  This one hurt.  

And on to Saturday 9!

 
What a week to come back - one of my favorite songs!  :)

Saturday 9: Mine Would Be You
(recommended by Kathy W)

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.
