don't ever challenge a word I put down - you WILL lose a turn

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. 
Cheers to all of us thieves!!! 

Shop On The Corner Meme 
Stolen from: FYeah Surveys
What kind of job did your mom have when you were growing up? She stayed at home, and then worked for the local car dealer doing bookkeeping.  Very exciting. 

 Have you ever known anyone that’s been on tv, including you? Yes.  Including me.  LOL

 What was the most interesting animal you have seen in the wild? I live in Michigan.  There is wildlife all around me.  I was actually surprised a couple of weeks ago, driving down a main road - and looked to the side and saw a wolf.  That was kind of freaky.  Now moose?  I don't believe in them.  I don't care if YOU have seen one, until *I* see one with my own eyes, I refuse to believe in them.  There are miles and miles of roads in ME, VT, NH, the UP, etc. where I have driven - shoot, I've even been to Alaska, and there are signs that tell me that they're going to be there?  But they lie.  They're not real. 

 What holiday do you enjoy the most? The one where I get presents, duh...

 What was the first video game you ever played? Seriously?  I'm 49.  An old one.  LOL

 What is the one thing you own, that if it got lost, you would be bummed? 

The money in my purse?  Not sure.  I have found that the older I get - the more I realize that *stuff* is replaceable.  People are not.  So I back up my photos on Picasa so they don't get lost, and hope that my insurance will cover the rest. 

 Do you have a favorite breakfast item? 

Hash browns.  Burn 'em

 What do you find yourself buying all the time? 

Food.  That stuff, for some reason - we just can't live without it!

 When was the last time you got a real letter in the mail? 

oh jeez... I don't know.  1985?  LOL

 Do you have a most prized piece of jewelry? My diamond circle necklace.  It's worth almost 2 mortgage payments. LOL

 Do you own any board games? Lots - you want to play?  I have to warn you, though - I'm awesome at Scrabble, and don't ever challenge a word I put down - you WILL lose a turn

 What chore seems the most daunting right now? 

steam cleaning the carpets. I know it needs to be done, but I just don't feel like it.  Yet.

 Were you born in the state you live in? 

Nope.  I'm 800+ miles away

 Have you ever lived in a house that has been broken into? 
No, thank God, but I did have an apartment once and someone else in the building stole my mother's wedding ring. 

 What is your favorite cheese? 

mmmmmmmmmm cheeeeeeeeeeeeese.....  Swiss?  With turkey and yellow mustard.  Yum.

 Who do you know that watches the most sports? 

That would be a toss up between Kim's Mark and my ex brother-in-law.  

Thanks for all the kind words yesterday.  Yes, family drama sucks.  Which is why I'm glad I'm so far away - I can separate myself from it.  And I'm over it.  I made my peace with it a long time ago.  

I choose my family.  Not blood..

I have had moose encounters. They're so big and clumsy but they sure can move!

I am Harriet said...

I have to steam clean like monthly thanks to puppies. I will never get carpeting again.

CountryDew said...

I never steam clean because I am scared of mold.

Glad you've had time to calm down.

I'm steam cleaning my tile floors, we have no carpet but that solar wind seems to blow stuff around constantly. Yes, I believe in solar wind making dirty floors, and in Moose.

I would love to see a moose in the wild! Their elusiveness with you is like my own wish to see a porcupine here in PA.

Yes, I'd like to play games! We have quite a few here, but no one ever wants to play any more.
