Sunday Stealing: I Love Questions (Oh yeah?)

Time for a little Sunday Stealing (hosted by Bev Sykes)  — questions lifted from all over the blogosphere. I haven't joined in on any of these for quite a while, but it's always fun. This week's list is from Questions, Memes, Asks, Etc.:

1. Are you satisfied with the way your life is right now?
Pretty much. Summer is my favorite time of year, so that's keeping me happy at the moment.
2. Do you drink enough water?
Probably not, although I do try to, and generally have a glass or bottle of water with me at all times.
3. When was the last time you ate at Burger King?
Sometime in the 1980s. Used to love their Whopper Jr.® burgers. Haven't had a burger of any kind in years.
4. Do you prefer the beach or the mountains?
The beach, although I cover myself up so thoroughly, I might as well NOT be at the beach.

5. How do you usually feel when you wake up on a morning?
Glad I made it through one more night.
6. Would you rather take someone on a date, or be taken on a date?
What's a date? Seriously, folks — dating is so far in my past I can just barely remember what it was like.
7. When was the last time you wore high heeled shoes?
Oh, wow...probably something like ten years ago. Maybe longer.
8. Vodka or wine?
Wine, generally. Although I do like the occasional Bloody Mary with vodka.
9. How often do you cry?
I seem to answer this question a lot. I honestly cannot remember the last time I cried, so ... not often.
10. Ever had a crush on a teacher?
11. Can you wire a plug?
No, but I can plug a wire.
12. Do you wear socks to bed?
Sometimes in winter, if it's very cold.
13. What is currently bugging you?
At this very moment? Not much, really. I've got a medical appointment scheduled for the end of this month, and I'm not terribly thrilled about that. But it's not really bugging me.
15. Can you change a car tire?
Well, I do know HOW to change a tire. Theoretically. But I've never had to do it, so I'll say...maybe.
16. Have you met more than ten celebrities?
I guess that would depend on what is meant by "celebrity." I've met quite a few bright lights in the academic world, but I don't suppose they'd qualify. So, no.
17. Do you sleep naked?
Definitely not. Well, not anymore.
18. What was the best music gig you’ve ever attended?
Wow. I've been to some great concerts. None very recent. I saw Leonard Cohen perform live several times, and those were some very special events.
19. Have you ever had sexual feelings for anyone you follow on line?
That's a little personal, don't you think?
20. Who is someone who has changed your life positively.
The guy I'm married to.
21. Favourite city?
I have several. I love my hometown of San Antonio. Also Chicago, New York, London and Paris. Haven't been to any of them in quite a while. Oh, and Mexico City. Again, haven't been there in many years.
22. Can you drive?
22. Cigarettes or alcohol?
For what? Do I smoke? No. Do I drink? Yes, but not much.
23. Favourite and least favourite accents?
No opinion on this.
24. Did you play Red Rover when you were a child?
I think so. Don't think it was a favorite game.
25. Do you like 1980s fashion?
I liked it during the 1980s. Looking back at that time, I realize there were some very odd fashion trends back then. But I guess that can be said of just about any era, including the present one. (I'd insert a photo of myself in leggings here, but fortunately I've destroyed all of those.)



  1. I wish I were at the beach right now. That picture looks so inviting. Loved your answers! Have a great day!

  2. I enjoyed reading your answers! I couldnt stand the 80s fashions. Too big, too much.

  3. Ha! Love your last comment about having destroyed all the 80's pictures. I don't think I have very many around and none that show the worst trends...well, except for big hair. I don't think any of us can avoid that one.

  4. great beach photo. I can smell the water!

    I was out of town for this Sunday Stealing, so I wrote mine today, if you're interested:
