Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly

1. Have you ever had a pen pal?
I have! Kim R and I corresponded for a couple of years when I was about 8. She was from Connecticut (so I learned how to spell that early!). Then when I was about 14, Kristina A and I met up via letter--she lived on Long Island and she was allowed to make phone calls so we talked rather more often than most pen pals do. That friendship was far too much of a mis-match to last, however. When I was a junior in high school, somehow Vickie P and I hooked up. She lived in Washington state and was heavily into that early-grunge, post-New Wave scene. We corresponded for perhaps 3 years. There was a guy in Brazil I wrote to briefly while in college--that was just weird, but he was drop-dead gorgeous. There was a girl in Japan in high school named Kumiko--I still have a lovely Japanese doll she sent me. Let's see. Oh, my college roommate had a Swedish penpal with a friend who wanted a penpal, so Elisabeth and I kept in touch for probably 6 years till adulthood and marriage and family and work intervened. And there was a guy who went to high school with a guy I dated briefly in college who turned out to be a better and longer-term friend than the guy I was dating.
Whew. See, I used to write letters. It's eminently possible I've written myself out.
2. What’s your favorite breed of dog?
I like pretty much all dogs. I guess I prefer terriers and retrievers and shepherds, having had those breeds. But I'm not going to be picky since I can't have a dog around me for long. I'll take whatever breed I can spend time with!
3. Can money buy happiness?
It buys comfort. That is often easily mistaken for happiness.
4. Do you listen to music when you’re down?
Yes. But I listen to music whenever I can, regardless of mood.
6.Can you honestly say you’re okay right now?
I honestly can.
7.What was the last thing you spent money on?
I dropped $250+ at Meijer yesterday on groceries and a few things for today's party.
8.Is your current hair color mostly your natural hair color?
Ayup. Stopped dying it 2-3 years ago.
9.Who have you texted in the last 24 hours?
Actually, no one. I PM'd Sparky a couple of times since he is pretty much always in his room and I don't feel like running (or shouting) upstairs for him. But my phone got no usage this weekend.
10.Were you in a good mood last night?
Sure. We watched a DVR'd episode of Whose Line Is It? and some other random stuff. I went to bed relatively early.
11.Do you have a reason to smile right now?
Always. IN spite of current irritation with Sparky's crabbiness about having to miss a D&D session to go to today's birthday party.
12. How often do you hold back what you want to say?
More than I ever used to! Probably not often enough though.
13. Do you think that in the end, everything will fall into place?
Yup. It always does, one way or another. We may not like the resulting picture, but there always is one.
14.Are you currently looking forward to anything?
Aside from today's party? lol My second "son" (a good friend of Sparky's from high school) is coming to visit in a couple of weeks. And I do like August and September just because.
15.Do you have any TV shows on DVD?
Most of Outlander--probably 10 episodes--and probably a couple of other things. Deadliest Catch? There'll be a NASCAR race to watch when we get home this afternoon.

I loved Deadliest Catch. And, oddly, Ice Road Truckers.
Have a great weekend, and Happy Party!

I am Harriet said...

I'm with you on the dog thing. As long as I have one I am happy

I like Deadliest Catch. I haven't seen Whose Line in a long time - I used to enjoy that show quite a lot.

I wish I could have a dog. They are my favorite.

How was the party?
