He better not change Mt. Rushmore, dammit!

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on the WTIT Blog with Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from, if possible. We also provide a link to the victim's questions 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 recently asked questions from a previously post. Cheers to all of us thieves!


From Jennifer Whitton-Trujillo from Facebook





1. What bill do you hate paying the most?  You know, I don't have one that really annoys me.  My utilities and trash are included in my rent, and I have cheap rent, so that's all good.  Phone, car payment, all good.  

2. What do you really want to be doing right now?  Making bagels.  Oh.  Wait, I am!


3. Why did you choose the shirt you have on now?  I didn't.  It chose me.  


4. Thoughts on gas prices?  Gas is stupid.  


5. First thought when the alarm goes off in the morning  Living the dream again!  LOL


6. Last thought you have before you go to sleep?  Good dreams... where's the damn cat?  Oh, in my armpit, that's right.  
7. Do you miss being a child?  Fuck no.  Maybe the innocence of being a young child?  But my older siblings were horrible to me, my parents fought all the time, and the good times were few and far between.  I didn't have a horrible childhood, but it could have been a lot better.  


8. What errand/chore do you despise the most?  Vacuuming the stairs.  Oh, that's right - I don't have any!  Hah!  Killing stink bugs.  I hate those little fuckers.


9. Up early or sleep in?  Today I was up at just before 8, yesterday I slept till 11.  LOL


10. Favorite lunch meat?  Turkey, swiss and yellow mustard.  I know - more than you wanted to know.  But on a sesame bun? Fantabulous.  


11. What do you get every time at Trader Joe’s?  I get their precooked chicken breasts - I use them in my salads.  


12. Beach or lake? Um, BEACH.


13. Ever crashed your vehicle? BAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... which one? 


14. Strangest place you've brushed your teeth? In the butt, Bob?  come on - what kind of question is that?  


15. Somewhere you've never been but want to go? Scotland, Oregon, most of the national parks before Trump gets rid of those, too.


16. At this point in your life would you want to start a new career?  Funny thing - I just did.  And I love it.


17. Do you own your own house?   Got rid of that albatross in May.  The same week my kid moved, I started a new job and I moved.  That was a busy week.  And the house wasn't the albatross, the payment was - I miss my 'hood.  I miss my neighbors.


18. Do you have a go-to person?  My non-sexual life partner, Kim.


19. Are you where you want to be in life?  Getting there..


20. Growing up, what were your favorite cartoons?  huh.  Not sure.  Wile E Coyote?  


21. What has changed since you were a child?   Really?  Well, where should we begin?  Computers?  Cell phones?  Facebook?   Is that what you mean?  Or personally? I'm not even going to START on all that shit.  Ain't nobody got time for that.. LOL


22. Looking back at high school, were they the best years of your life? baaaaaaaaahahahahaha..  Um, no.


23. Are there times you still feel like a kid?  You're only as old as you feel.


24. Did you have a pager?  Yeah, it goes with my shoe phone.


25. Were you the type of kid you want your kids to hang out with?   Well, I only have one kid.  Who's not a kid any more.  And he's one of my favorite people to hang out with so, yeah, I guess so?

The one that was all about JC!



Saturday 9: Voices Carry (1985)
 
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.


This song was chosen because October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please share this link to The National Domestic Violence Hotline. Let's spread the word that there's help out there.

1) In this song, a woman is "hushed" by her lover. When were you last told to "keep it down?"
I have no idea.  Me?  Loud?  Oh wait.  It might have been... nah...  And completely aside - I read an old blog, and thought it would be fun to get back into it.  And what do I pick?  Saturday 9.  And what is special about THIS Saturday 9?  The video for the song "Voices Carry" was filmed in Boston.  I have friends in the music video.  Like when she is in the theater?  The guy sitting in front of her with the beard and the tux?  My good friend JC.  So good choice.... good choice....

2) Her lover tells her tears are something to hide. Researchers tell us that crying can be good for us, because by releasing emotional stress, it lessens physical stress on the cardiovascular system. Are you comfortable crying in front of other people?
Are we talking ugly cry, or weeping?  Aw hell, I don't care - if it's something to make me cry you're damn sure that everyone else around me is doing it too

3) In this video, the woman makes a scene by speaking up in a theater. Today theater goers are more likely to be disturbed by a cell phone ringing or its screen illuminating. Are you careful to turn your phone off in the theater, church, etc.?
Oh, see.  NOW I have to share a picture of it.. Isn't he a handsome devil?  And a great friend, one that you wish you had.  And John if you're reading this - holy shit your genes are strong, LOL..  Oh, and to answer the question?  Of course.  That's just rude.


4) When this group, Til Tuesday, was still struggling, Cyndi Lauper was already a star. Cyndi offered to record this song, which would have brought the group some fast cash, but only if they agreed not to record it themselves. Obviously they didn't take the deal. Tell us about a time you took a risk on yourself, and it paid off.
Moved to Michigan.  
5) Til Tuesday's lead singer, Aimee Mann, went to Open High School in Richmond, Virginia. This charter high school is dedicated to helping students become "self-determined thinkers and learners." Do you recall your high school as permissive or regimented?
High School is dumb.  High school kids are dumb.  And not being one to hold a grudge usually?  Mimi Gibson was so mean to me.  I still hate her.  LOL

6) Aimee has been on the road through 2017 and, like most artists, sells tour merchandise. Her line includes reusable tote bags. Do you bring your own bag to the grocery store?
I love Trader Joe's.  I love TJ's bags.  I love the fact that one opened just a couple of miles from me.  I'm going there this morning - AND I will bring my own bag!

7) Aimee has tried her hand at acting and appeared on Buffy, The Vampire Slayer. From Dracula to Barnabas Collins to Lestat, vampires are a popular culture staple (especially in October). What do you suppose accounts for their enduring popularity?
I don't know.  I don't get it.  Now zombies - that's totally different.  I just finished Season Four of Game of Thrones.  The Walking Dead is my ride or die.  

8) In 1985, when this song was popular, Bruce Springsteen was at the top of the charts with Born in the USA. A massive commercial success, Born in the USA has sold more than 15,000,000 copies in the United States alone. Is it in your collection?
Um, do you KNOW me???? Here.  Have a gander at my boyfriend.  


  
9) Random question: In which race would you do better -- the Iditarod, with sled dogs in Nome, or speeding in a car at 200+ mph at the Indianapolis 500?
Indy 500...  'nuff said..

Boxing Day!

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: Happy Holidays! (from the archives)

1. As you can see, Sam loved giving her annual wish list to Santa. Yet some children are reluctant to climb into Jolly Old St. Nick's lap. Did you enjoy the tradition or were you shy? Or did you by pass it altogether -- either because you wrote him a letter or because your family didn't celebrate Christmas?

I have a picture somewhere of me on Santa's lap with my siblings.  No clue where it is.  Having two older siblings I didn't believe as long as I would have otherwise.  LOL 


2. Are you currently on the Naughty or Nice list? How did you get there?

Depends on who you ask.  LOL  Actually, no.  I'm on the nice list.  I'm a nice person, dammit.  People like me.  When I'm not a nice person?  You've earned it.  Two things that will get me riled up?  Picking on other people that can't or won't defend themselves, and screwing with my kid.  I will Fuck.  You.  UP.


3. Did you ship any gifts to friends and family this year? If so, which one traveled the farthest?


Massachusetts. 

4. Did you buy yourself a gift this year? 

Why yes, I did!  I'm using it to fill out this meme!  My computer died (RIP computer) and the iPad wasn't cutting it for "real" internet use, so I got a laptop.  Apparently *nobody* buys a PC any more.  Whatever... LOL


5. What's your favorite holiday-themed movie?

It's a Wonderful Life


6. Thinking of movies, Christmas is lucrative for Hollywood. Have you ever gone to a movie theater on Christmas Day?


I used to go almost every year, but haven't in years. 

7. Have you ever suffered an embarrassing moment at the company Christmas party? 

I don't think so? 


8. What's your favorite beverage in cold weather?

Mmmmmmmm coffee.... or hot chocolate.


9. Share a memory from last Christmas.

Hmmmm I think that I wasn't feeling it last year, and went to the casino with what I was going to spend on Christmas presents.  I ended up winning like $300. Best non-Christmas ever!  I ended up getting the boy some presents.. LOL  And this year I went on Christmas Eve and won $1570.  Lucky me!  :)



Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us next week for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Where else would we put the scratchies??

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”.

Let's go!!!

Can you make bread pudding out of Fig Newtons?

Saturday 9: Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer (1979)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) According to a marketing research firm, this song is both one of the most played and most hated songs of the season. Do you like it?

I don't not like it.  I guess I'm a bit indifferent.  My favorite, though - is Dominick the Donkey.  Heard it?

2) In this song, Grandma's troubles start when she drinks too much eggnog. Do you like eggnog?

Mmmmmmmmmmm eggnog..... with a wee bit o' the Captain.  Yum.


3)  In the song, Grandpa recovers from losing Grandma by drinking beer and playing cards with Cousin Mel. Will you be celebrating the holidays with cousins?

No :(  I am missing the family Christmas this year.  Not enough time to take off, not enough money to drive or fly.  That makes me sad.  Great.  Now I'm sad.  

 4) When did you most recently drink a beer? Was it in a bottle, a can or a glass?

I may have to go drown my sorrows now that you've made me sad.  Thanks.  But I have some of the delightful Ben & Jerry's salted caramel brownie ale.  Now I'm happy.  I heart beer. 

5) The lyrics refer to "pudding of fig." In "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," the carolers demand figgy pudding. Yet despite its popularity in holiday songs, Sam has never tasted fig pudding. Have you?

Nope.  I like figs.  No, wait - I'm thinking of dates.  Oh, then again - there are Fig Newtons.  I like those.  Can you make pudding out of Fig Newtons?


6) Thinking of holiday sweets, would you prefer a gingerbread cookie or slice of pumpkin pie?

Why limit yourself to a slice?  Pumpkin, apple, pecan - hook a sister up, willya?


7) This song was recorded by a duo named Elmo & Patsy. It occurs to Sam that she has never met anyone named Elmo. How about you? Any Elmos in your life?

Tickle me Elmo.  That's about it 


8) Do you need snow to get "into the spirit?"

No.  I work at Home Depot.  We've been playing Christmas carols since the day after Thanksgiving.  I have caught myself singing along far too many times. 


 9) Random question: Are you going to get/have you gotten a flu shot this year?

I get one every year.  Don't get the flu.  Related?  You tell me....

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!

The computer that I thought was dead, came back to life, and then died again.  It's either the hard drive or motherboard, and I said screw it.  My pictures are saved on Picasa.  I got a laptop.  Brand spankin' new.  Yay me. 

Happy Saturday!

Sad day..


Such a sad day today for so many.  My son's grandmother died, and her funeral is this morning.
She’d known about him (my son) since he was about 2 or 3.  I wrote her a letter and sent a picture.  Along with an explanation that I had a niece that I hadn’t seen since she was 2 and that I always worried about her, whether she was OK, healthy, loved, all that.  I didn’t want anyone to worry about that with him – or wonder where he was.  And each year I sent her a picture of him.  Told her if she didn’t want them to send them back.  I never got one back.   A couple of years ago I guess she went into a nursing home, and I stopped sending the pictures.  But I did send messages to her daughters (my son’s aunts) and let them know about my son – for the same reasons.  One blocked me on Facebook.  All three ignored the messages and have never reached out.  I also let his (half) siblings know about him.  Same reasons.  Same result.  Although one of them told me to fuck off and that it wasn't my story to tell.  It's not?  Then whose is it?  Your father's?  The pathological liar and cheater?  Yeah.  I don't think so.

Why did I feel it necessary to let all these people know about a child that they otherwise wouldn’t have known about?  Because his father is an asshole to the nth degree and would never have told them about him.  Do a search for Kevin – you’ll find the whole story. 

Anyway.  Kevin and his “fiancĂ©e” (that's hysterical in it's own right) Jeanne have made up stories about how my son came to be – and none of them involve the truth.   As well as stories about me – and why they should ignore any attempts at contact from me, and not contact my son.   I won’t bother with the truth here (I think it’s been posted numerous times)..  But let’s just say that the truth and the stories?  Not even close to reality. 

RIP Queenie. 

 I’m hoping that there is an afterlife, and that you now realize what your son took away from you.   And from everyone else in your family.   Because he’s such an awesome kid, and young man.  And shame on you Kevin.  Shame on YOU.  And I’m sorry about your mother.

Lies and the Liars that tell them



So, I know that I've written here about Kevin and crazy Jeanne (do a search, you'll find it all). 


I happened to be shown a picture that was of their fireplace, and at the bottom was a wooden box with "EST 2005" on it. 


Wait.  What??


Apparently that's when they tell people that they got together?  You know - the whole twuuuuuu wuvvvvvvvvv thing?


Um.  Yeah.  Let's try that again.


How about 2003?  That's when I caught the two of them cheating again on their respective spouses.  And I know that HER ex knows, but does his?


And is this what they tell all the kids (who really aren't kids any more)?  What, we happened to run into each other and oh my goodness, look at this child she looks just like YOU! 


Here's the thing.  Lies?  ALWAYS have a way of sneaking up and biting you in the ass.  Hard.  I know.  I've told a few whoppers in my time.  But I owned up to them. 


It's a shame that there are 5 kids that don't have the opportunity to know each other, because that would be inconvenient to explain.  Oh wait - I'm sorry.  Four of them know each other.  It's #5 that's the issue.  Because the story of how he came to be would poke wholes in the whole "twuuuuuuuuu wuvvvvvvvvvv" story.


Don't worry.  It'll get out there.  One way or another.


Oh, and his response when I called him out on this bullshit?  Hysterical.  Refused to answer any questions, and nitpicked over $25.  Really?  That's all you got?  Oh wait.  Yep.  That IS all you've got.  Because I've told the truth.  I'm not the one that can't keep it straight.


Also - I'm not the one that would say to an 18 year old "I'm done with you" when it's found out she had contact with her brother.


And these people are licensed foster parents?  Seriously?  Isn't there a mental health evaluation in there somewhere?


Newsflash....  I know that a reasonable person would know this?  BUT... for those that don't.  If you have to lie to ANYONE about when you got together, the circumstances, etc.?  Not good.  When you have to lie to your KIDS about their siblings (half or whole) - Not good.


When you shit your pants and start to panic because someone threatens to tell the truth to people that don't know it?


You might be a liar. 


 Liar. 


Pants on fire.

Consider Yourself Meme

Stolen from: The Archives

1) Of the various cultures, ethnicities or nationalities you belong to, which most strongly do you consider yourself?
Irish and (recovering) Catholic. 
2) Is there a culture you cannot claim heritage from but which you feel quite close to?
Um, no?  My ex used to think he was Jewish and Canadian, though.  Not sure where he came up with all that - but then again, he's known to make shit up. Like some seriously whacked out shit.  I remember one time he told me he knew things before they happened.  But could never give me an example.  And really, he should have seen that coming if it were true.
3) What's one language you wish you knew fluently?
Sarcasm.  Oh, wait.  Boom, done. 
4) If you could move anywhere in the world and be guaranteed a job, etc., where would you go?
ooooh I'd say Europe, but right now isn't a good time for that - which really really sucks.  Stupid ISIS.  Maybe if I was guaranteed a job of kicking their asses?  Other than that?  Either Seattle or New England. 
5) If you had a time machine, and could witness any one event without altering or disturbing it, what would you want to see?
Hmmmm...  I'm not going to pick when someone dies - cuz that's just gross.  Maybe Woodstock?  That would be kind of cool.
6) Have problems sleeping?
No.  Do you?
7) Are you free with your feelings?
Free?  What, am I supposed to charge for them?
8) What is the one outfit/piece of clothing/accessory you own that makes you feel incredibly good whenever you wear it? Why?
My PJ's.  They're comfortable.
 9) What do you do to make yourself feel better when you're in a funk?
Music, music, music.
10) Has anyone ever surprised you in a way that let you know you were special? How?
My BFF Kim surprised me (which is no small feat, let me tell you) when I graduated from college.
11) When you are having a "good day," how do you spread the happiness to others?
I sing to them. 
12) What is one thing that puts you in a bad mood, no matter how good you were previously feeling?
Mean people.  They suck.
13) Would you rather live in a world with or without technology such as computers, cars, airplanes, bombs?
But then that would take away a lot of the medical advances, right?  Not sure.  That's worth a think or two.
14) If you had to live without either heating in your house or air conditioning, which one would you keep?
Now that's just a dumb question.  I live in Michigan.  It gets cold.  Really cold.  I can always turn a fan on in the summer, but take away my heat?  I'll move.
15) If you had to own five dogs, what kind would you get?
A dog sitter?  I'd love another Lhasa, or little dog like that.  But five?  I'd have a headache constantly.  

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!  I thought my computer was dead, and it has risen - tried it yesterday for shits & giggles and it started up!  Woohoo!!!

Peonies.  They smell damn good.

7. What book has most changed your life? 

Really?  What kind of question is this?  There is no good answer.  I've read many books that have given me insight on many things - but to pick one?  No way.


8. What is your least favorite vegetable? Is there any way you can be persuaded to eat it? 

Beets.  Maybe for $1,000.  


9. If you could take a nonstop first class flight to any destination, where would you pick to land? 

Again, really?  I'm going to Vegas in 20 days.  How about there?


10. If your 15 minutes of fame included a stint on American Idol, what song would be your trademark solo? 

"She Bangs"..  I can't sing to save my life.

11. If you could pick one former friend (who has remained elusive in this wild Facebook world) to reunite with, who would you unearth? 

 I don't think there's anyone that I can't get in touch with - if I don't have contact with them now, there's a reason for that.  I'd love to be in touch with my nephews, but again - there's a reason for that.  I hate that people feel the need to lie and cover shit up.  Sigh..


12. You have been awarded the time off from work and an all-expenses paid week anywhere in the United States. The catch is that it must be somewhere you have not been before. Where do you choose to visit? 

 Oh that's easy, Nashville. 


13. Name three of your guilty pleasures. 

 The Walking Dead, Pumpkin beer, my time with the Indians


14. The best kind of cookie is: 

 Grandma Cadin cookies, otherwise now known as Harriet cookies.  I miss those cookies.  And Harriet. 

15. What do you value most in other people? 

 HONESTY.  I really don't get why people feel the need to hide things.  I get it if it's something small, you know - like a dish.   But the big stuff?  Always comes back to bite you in the ass. 

16. Have you ever looked back at your life and realized that something you thought was a bad thing was actually a blessing in disguise? 

Oh gosh, the glaringly obvious one would be my son's father.  I thought it was the end of the world when we broke up, but I realize now that it was such a good thing!  It forced me to grow up, accept responsibility for this person we created, and put someone other than myself first for once.  I can't even imagine what my life would be if he actually followed through on his promises.  Ew.  


17. What is the most beautiful place you’ve ever visited? 

 Alaska - only because it it so untouched.  Ireland is a tie..

 18. Are you more of a thinker or a feeler? 

 Oh, when I'm feeling something?  You'll be thinking about it.  Like right now I think (actually I know it) that my crazy neighbor Vinnie is at it again (he's actually named his wireless "FuckKathyW***".  Yes.  I'm serious.  Obsessed much?  He really creeps me out.  And he's going to feel my boot right up his ass by the time I'm done with him. 

19. Name three things you are thankful for right now. 

My kid that took me to the movies last night
Coffee

Avocados
 

20. Have you ever participated in a three-legged race? 

 Oh God, so many places to go with this.  Let's just say yes.  LOL

21. When you are at an event that plays the National Anthem, do you place your hand over your heart?

No.  That's for the Pledge of Allegiance.
