Sunday Stealing: Joy!

So my first post of the new year is a new round of Sunday Stealing (hosted by Bev Sykes)  — questions lifted from all over the blogosphere. This week's list is from Sleepy Rambles.

1. Are you filled with joy today?
My name is Joy, so I suppose you might think that I'm filled with joy EVERY day. You'd be wrong about that. But I am pretty joyful today — would be more so if I didn't have dental work scheduled this week.
2. Has it been a rough week?
Not really, just kind of hectic. Dental adventures. Starting the un-decorating after the holidays. Catching up on laundry and errands that got put off while we were doing Christmas stuff. 
3. If given the opportunity, would you like to star in a musical?
Goodness, yes! Wouldn't it be luverly? Of course, I'd need to get a singing voice from somewhere — allergies and asthma have pretty much destroyed mine.
4. Name one person you’d take a bullet for.
Mmmm. I don't think so. 
5. Did you trip over anything today?
Not so far. But the day is young.
6. Last time you painted a picture?
Ooh, that would be a VERY long time ago. I've done some sketching in recent years, and some collage work. But no actual painting in at least thirty years.
7.  Is your favorite color yellow?
Yellow is definitely ONE of my favorite colors. Also turquoise and aqua.
8. Were you born in a hospital? Do you know the name of the person who delivered you?
Yes, I was born in a hospital. Don't know the name of the doctor, but I've got all my mother's medical records from back then, so I could go look it up — but that would mean moving around a LOT of packing crates.
9. Have you ever had a friend or relative who's incarcerated?
Yes. And that's all I'll say about that.
10. Do you enjoy romantic movies, even when they’re cliche?
Not really. I prefer mysteries, thrillers, action movies, comedies. Not a huge romance fan.
11. Would you rather watch a movie or listen to music?
Depends on the movie, the music, and what else I've got going on. Most of the time, I'd probably rather read.
12. Ever been to Rhode Island?
I don't think so, although I might have been there briefly while we were driving around New England one summer. 
13. Can you tell the difference between a Scottish & an Irish accent?
I'm pretty good with accents, so I'm gonna say yes.
14. Can you read music?
No, much to my regret. Over the years, I've had some vocal training classes that included lessons in reading music, but I don't remember much of it now.
15. Have you been to McDonald’s in the past month?
I have not been to McDonald's in the past decade. If I'm lucky, I might never need to go there again.



  1. I think being in a musical would be fun if I could sing. Loved your answers! Have a nice day!

  2. love your answers and agree on McD's the only reason I went there (we were literally in middle of nowhere and spotted the golden arches and I needed food right then (sugar dropped)

    happy weekend

  3. Great post! I think my kids are the only ones in the planet that never ate happy meals on a regular basis

  4. Re #14 - don't worry. Judy Garland couldn't read music either!

  5. I cannot sing very well so I will take a pass on the musical. Good Luck :)

  6. I imagine with a little effort reading music would come back to you. It's really worthwhile to play a musical instrument. Good for the joy. :-)

  7. I've always wanted to be able to sing so I think it would be luverly if there was a store where I could go buy myself a voice! I didn't say so in my answer, but I am with you on choosing reading over a movie or music! Have a great week!
