Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
My Friends Call Me Tulip
  1. Can you stay inside all day without getting bored?
    Yup. I've had to learn that since I'm basically allergic to the outdoors from early August until a hard frost in the fall.
  2. Tell us about a TV show that we should watch.
    As my son says, "you do you" so I try not to tell people what they should do. Having said that, I really like almost everything Mike Rowe is involved in.
  3. When was the last time you were at your home computer all day?
    I'm not sure. Maybe last weekend? I don't know; it's not that unusual.
  4. What websites other than your own do you visit daily?
    What I have open right now: GoodReader, Inoreader, Gmail, Facebook, and Blogger. I don't go to my site daily, or even Blogger. Facebook is my crack.
  5. Do you have a favorite day of the week? Why?
    I used to love Mondays; I still like them, but I work full-time now so it's less exciting. I like Fridays at work too--they just seem way laid-back.
  6. Did you ever watch Saturday morning cartoons? What was your favorite?
    Nope. Saturday morning, when I was a child, meant staying in my room and cleaning while Mom cleaned the rest of the house. Once lunchtime passed, I was free to do whatever I wanted, which rarely involved TV.
  7. Were you a comic book fan?
    Not so much, no.
  8. Did you earn an allowance when you were a kid? How much? Was it tied to chores?
    My parents were never really into this. I got paid a little to take the trash out for awhile, but mostly if I wanted money, I just asked. Which involved explaining what I wanted it for.
  9. What is the fanciest type of car you've ridden in? What occasion?
    I was in a Porsche for a day quite some time ago, helping a friend move. She was 24...and owned a Porsche. WTF! And I've ridden in a number of limos over the years. It's an airport thing around here.
  10. What's your favorite sport to watch?
    Football. Really, need you ask??
  11. Ever tried surfing?
    Nope. I can't swim. Surfing seems like it could be rather dangerous for me.
  12. Have you ever been to a live major team sporting game?
    Yeah. Been to a NFL games, a couple of NBA games, lots of MLB games, and some hockey and soccer games. You know what, though: I've never been to a sports event in another country. There's a bucket list thing.
  13. From a scale of 1 to 5 how athletic are you (1=nerd, 5=very athletic)?
    I'm probably about -4 these days.
  14. What's your favorite horror movie?
    I don't do horror movies.
  15. What is your favorite cult classic movie?
    By default, it has to be RHPS.
  16. About how many times do you go to the movies a month?
    I think my average for this year is up to .2 times per month. Last few years, it would probably be closer to .02 times per month.
  17. Favorite movie, which one came to your head first?
    Shoah
  18. What if your life was like a movie? What type of movie would it be?
    Deadly dull with moments of insanity. I'm not sure anyone would watch it.
  19. Do you like long series movies, like "Lord of the Rings"?
    Well, I don't like LotR, but I did enjoy the Harry Potter movies and the Matrix movies. Generally, though, I prefer brand-new ideas rather than re-doing the same damn thing over and over. Hello, superheroes, I'm looking SQUARELY at you!

I love Mike Rowe. Have you seen his CNN special?

CountryDew said...

We never miss Deadliest Catch. I'm not sure what to do with you since you don't like LOTR. :)! Movies, or the books, or both? I like the movies much better than the books. I watched the Harry Potter movies but prefer the last three, when the kids weren't quite so ... kiddish.

I did get a bit of allowance but if I wanted something or needed money I had to do the same ask for it and explain why

I never realized Mike Rowe had a special. I'll have to look for it.
