LeeAnna of Not Afraid of Color suggested I give Sunday Stealing a try. It's a weekly meme, hosted by Bev Sykes, that comes up with a different list of fun questions, from elsewhere on the Internet, every Sunday. I think of it as answering surveys in magazines, once upon a time.
So, here I go with this week's questions.
1. If you could be a Muppet, which would you be?
The Muppets came along when I wasn't watching TV, but I did get hooked on the Muppet Babies. Among the babies, I would be Skeeter. She didn't get much play on the show, but from what I saw, the girl had a lot of gumption and moxie.
2. Why is a chicken crossing the road in the first place?
To see how a cow is out standing in its field.
3. What's your favorite muscle?
Heart or brain? Brain or heart? Without the heart pumping away, the brain can't live so I'll go with the heart.
4. Cheerios or Rice Krispies?
Snap, crackle, pop, please.
5. Is summer ever going to get here?
Summer appeared in mid May for us. Maybe sooner, it's hard to recall. My short-term memory cells like to play games with me.
6. Have you ever had a utility turned off by mistake or some other reason besides weather or nonpayment?
The rumble tumble of Loma Prieta Earthquake of 1989 in San Francisco turned off things in our building for a short while. We were lucky.
7. What was your "last day" of something?
Today, I used up all of the olive oil and walnut oil. It's a good thing I'm grocery shopping this week.
8. If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which one would you choose?
The reality show Survivor. To be trapped a month would mean that I'm on the jury or still in the running to win. That works for me.
9. Did you have any type of class trip, band trip, etc in high school? Where did you go, what did you do?
At my high school, back then, the senior class had an official Senior Sneak Day when any senior who had the proper permission slip boarded a school bus bound for a day at the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz. A friend and I rented bicycles and pedaled all the way up a pretty steep hill to visit what was then the new university.
10. Do your feet smell?
Nope, but they do they get dirty a lot from wearing crocs with no socks while working in the yard.
11. Do you know how to french braid?
I wish. Most days I wear a basic braid. Sometimes I can go two or three days before re-doing it. Is it TMI to say that I can go nearly 2 weeks without washing my hair when I have it in a braid?
12. Two guys are walking down the street. One drops his hat and reaches down to pick it up, the other kicks him in the ass. Do you laugh?
I'd more likely stop and look in disbelief and then respond in some way. I doubt I'd laugh that may come years later when I'm telling the story. Maybe.
13. You wake up one morning and dogs are meowing and cats are barking - what are fish, elephants and crocodiles doing?
The fish croon a lullaby and the crocodiles sing in 4-part harmony while the elephants pantomime "Morning Has Broken" by Cat Stevens followed by his other song "House at Pooh Corner".
14. You are going to your high school reunion. What award are you going to win?
If it's for the usual who came the furthest, who has the most great-grandchildren, and so forth, I'd win nothing. My 50th is next year. I think about not going since I've been to nearly all the others, and helped plan the last four. More than likely I will go, if all's clear. Maybe.
15. You find yourself stranded on a deserted island. Soon you find a laptop with a lifelong battery & internet connection, then you find a cave with an endless supply of food and a spring of fresh water. A cruise ship comes along to save you - do you get on it?
Yes. I'm going back to the island, hopefully with the Husband and Molly the Cat.
16. How many shortcuts do you have on your desktop?
Not knowing how many I have is fine with me.
17. I offer you a pie... the most delicious pie you have ever seen. You either have to eat the entire thing in one sitting or allow me to slam it into your face, which do you choose?
May I have coffee with the pie, please.
18. Are you a pen stealer?
These days, it's more like a pen forgetter. I don't know many times have I reached into my purse for a pen, zilch!
19. A dude from China comes up and offers you German chocolate cake, French fries and a Boston cream pie... what color is your car?
20. Sometimes you just have to tap your foot to your favorite song - which tv series season finale are you watching?
The Facts of Life.

One more thing: Today the Husband started his first day of a new adventure tripping around the sun. He's a sweetheart, the Mister is. How'd I ever get so lucky?
is it that silly husbands birthday??? happy year to you, and thanks for keeping our Susie happy! I loved your answers, wanted a red car and never got one, coffee with the pie lol, I went to only one reunion and didn't recognize many people! Those collage pics are really cool,ReplyDelete
Awwww. Thanks, LeeAnna. Currently we have a white car. In the past, I owned a red Colt followed by a red Mazda truck.Delete
fun questions and answers - snap, crackle, pop!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharingReplyDelete
Su-sieeemac - what a fun set of questions! Kept me entertained, and I think I know you a little better than I did 10 minutes ago! Thanks for linking up to Mosaic Monday!ReplyDelete
Hey Angie! :-)Delete
Hello, I love the last photo of your hubby, he looks like a fun guy! I enjoyed your answers, more coffee and pie please.. Beautiful images and mosaics! Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!ReplyDelete
Eileen, you called it right about the Husband. :-)Delete
Oh those were FUN! I'm still trying to figure out what my responses would be to some though! The pie? I just don't know about that! haha! LOVE your creative mosaics today, especially the one of the grain in the field...pics layered! Brilliant!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Diane. I'm happy with the layered wild grass mosaic, too.Delete
Haha If your hubby gets as far as Thailand he will have lots of bells to wear! This was a fun way to get to know you better!ReplyDelete
Your answer to #8 is perfect! I almost said Survivor but then thought no, I'd rather spend a month lost in the Delta Quadrant. Silly me.ReplyDelete
In real life, I would probably be voted of very early because people would think I'd be a drag in physical competitions. I'd be great at the swimming and diving games.Delete
Happy birthday to your husband. I'll try to remember the page you suggested. These questions were lots of fun. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Dawn aka Spatulas On Parade
Dawn, it ended up being more fun to do than I thought it would. I'm glad LeeAnna nudged me.Delete
Happy belated start to another orbit to your great husband! It’s gonna be a good trip I can tell from the picture! I never do those quizzes but i would if I could be as creative as you are !ReplyDelete
The photo was from a few years back but it certainly represents the Husband today. lolDelete
Those were very interesting questions and your answers were great and many had me laughing! Happy birthday to your husband!ReplyDelete
All right, Pat!Delete
Thanks for giving Sunday Stealing a shot. Great answers. We watch "Survivor" religiously because my son is addicted. There is no way I would NOT be the first voted off.ReplyDelete
You must be in the Bay Area is you remember Loma Prieta. Two of my kids were at Candlestick that afternoon and my daughter was trapped on the Bay Bridge!
Oh my gosh, Bev, Candlestick and the Bay Bridge! I was in the kitchen at home. It was such a rumble and a tumble of things. My first thought was that somebody bombed our building. I got so mad thinking that.Delete
Happy birthday to your husband. It appears you graduated from high school the year I was born. :-0 You've been to your reunions? Wow. I refuse to attend mine.ReplyDelete
The last reunion was a blast. I danced all night, which was probably what nudged my knees over to far gone.Delete
Excellent responses to some really weird questions! :) ... Happy Birth Day to the Husband!!! :DReplyDelete
Thanks, Widders. :-)Delete
Happy birthday to the mister! Love the first picture and the collages!ReplyDelete
Have a safe weekReplyDelete
Thanks for dropping by my blog Susieee
Right back at you, Gillena.Delete
...now that's boot and a hat!!!ReplyDelete
Your husband is so funny...I love these pictures of him...you should do a collage of all the funny pics of him. I think I would go with Cheerios not that I eat either. I think I would take a pie in the face because I could still lick it off and eat it besides 8 always wanted to be in a pie fight. I don’t think I would ever go to my high school reunion since I was so bullied so I have no idea what I would “win”. We did go on a geology tour and had to pick up rocks, which I didn’t but just had fun.ReplyDelete
Oooh, I'd do a pie fight with you, Birgit. In 8th grade, I wrote a skit in which we threw fake pies at each other. I couldn't find anyone to be in the skit.Delete
Creative questions. Funny answers! Good job. I'd have to get a pie in the face.ReplyDelete
This was fun. Now, whenever I see a chicken crossing the street, I'll know what is happening.ReplyDelete
Yup, a cow is out there. :-)Delete
