Sunday Stealing {Let’s Talk Travel}

Let’s Talk Travel Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim’s meme in our “Previous Victims” widget. (It’s our way of saying “Thanks!”) Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
Let’s go!!!

Ok let’s talk travel, do you like to travel?   Yes, but I don’t do it often enough.

Where have you been?  Just a few states and Mexico.

Next place you want to go?   I’d just like to get away for just a night at this point.

What is something you MUST take with you when you travel?  Clothes.

How do you like to travel? (mode of transportation)  I like road trips by car.

With someone, or alone?  It’s more fun with someone.

Do you dance in your car when there are other people with you?  Depends on who it is.

If you’re quiet what does it mean?  Usually just means I’m tired and/or crabby.

Favorite scent?   While traveling?  I know what’s NOT my favorite scent!

Favorite store?  Any place I can buy fun, pretty things.

Say you wanted coffee.. what kind is your favorite?  I like just a plain latte or breve.

Favorite kind of pizza?  Cheese or veggie.

Do you get embarrassed easily?  Very easily.

Do you mind people asking you personal questions?  Depends again on who it is.

You have a tank of gas, $50, and the day off… what do you do?  A day off with no kids?  I ‘d go shopping.

Favorite tv show?  Once Upon A Time, since it’s the only show I consistently watch.

Song you turn the volume up all the way to listen to?   There are a lot of “oldies” from the 80’s and 90’s that I do that with.  Brings me back in time.

Something you keep in your car?  Kleenex.

 Highlight of your day?  If I get some time alone.

 Something you do everyday that you wish you didn’t have to do?  Make meals.

Do you mind if people just show up at your house unannounced?   Yes, because I’m usually in either my PJs or some stupid-looking comfy clothes and I probably haven’t showered.

What do you do when you disagree with someone?  Again, it depends on who it is and what the disagreement is about. 

Do you enjoy rain?   I love when it rains. 
Thank you, Great Spirit.

Saturday 9 {The Power of Love}

The Power of Love

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: The Power of Love (1985)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) In this song, Huey explains that you don’t need a credit card to find love. What’s the last thing you charged?   I don’t use the ol’ credit card anymore.  Trying to pay it off.

2) This song was written for Back to the Future. At the beginning of the movie, hero Marty McFly traveled around town on his skateboard. Are you good on a skateboard?  Never tried one.  Just wasn’t a “thing” when I was a kid.

3) Huey sings lead and his backup group is The News. Was the most recent news you heard bad or good?  I just read a local story about a girl running a race who stopped to pick up another runner from another team after she injured her knee badly.  She carried the injured girl across the finish line after a bunch of other runners just ran past her.  I love reading stories like that. 

4) Huey’s mother, Maria, was born in Poland. Who is the first member of your family to be born in the US of A?  On my dad’s side, it was my dad.  My grandpa came over from Greece.  Think it probably goes a long way back on my mom’s side.

5) Brainy Huey got a perfect score on the math portion of the SAT. Did you take the SAT? How did you do?  I think I did but I don’t even remember for sure much less remember the score.

6) This song also hit #1 in Australia, where anzac biscuits are popular. To make them (the recipe is here) you need coconut. Do you have any coconut in your home right now?  I have coconut oil and maybe some grated coconut but not a whole coconut.

7) Thinking of dessert, would you rather have cookies, cake, pie, ice cream or frozen yogurt?  If it’s a homemade cookie, I’ll take that.

8) We’re definitely into autumn now. What will you remember most about Summer 2014?  Our trip to St. Louis.

9) Tell us your superhero name, as determined by the color of your shirt and an item directly to your right. For example, Sam fights crime as The Gold Kleenex Box!  Dawn fights crime as The Gray Desk Calendar.  Meh…

Thank you, Great Spirit.

Saturday 9 {Put a Ring on It}

Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) (2008)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) Are the majority of your friends married or single?  At my age, they’ve been married, divorced and remarried.

2) Rings are one of the items most frequently pawned. Have you ever visited a pawn shop, either to sell or to buy?  I’ve gone to a couple just looking around.  Not too exciting.

3) Let’s say we want to put a ring on it: What’s your ring size?  Depends on the finger but I usually like a 7 to wear on a couple different fingers.  In case you do want to get me a ring, I love white gold and emeralds.

4) Beyonce does commercials for Pepsi. What’s the last beverage you drank?  I actually just finished a Diet Coke, which I like better than Diet Pepsi.  I really shouldn’t drink them at all since they’re so bad for me.

5) Beyonce also has a clothing line. What are you wearing right now?  Yoga type pants, a t-shirt and a hoodie.

6) Speaking of clothes, Sam was changing hers this morning when she unintentionally flashed her neighbor. She didn’t realize he was working along the fence that runs under her bedroom window. Tell us one of your most embarrassing moments.  Probably a poop story I’d rather not share.

7)  Rumor has it Beyonce is pregnant again. Coincidentally, Sam needs to check the Babys R Us registry for a shower present. Who will receive the next gift you give?  My son’s birthday is coming up.

8) But Sam doesn’t actually want to go to the shower and is trying to come up a good excuse. Tell us a time you fibbed you told to get out of doing something.  Kids are always a good excuse to use.

9) When did you last go inside the bank and talk to a teller?  A month or so ago.  

Thank you, Great Spirit.

Friday Fragments

Today is time for Friday Fragments, with Mrs4444 from Half-Past Kissin’ Time, where you get to unload the fragments left in your brain from the week.

Half-Past Kissin' Time

♥  We had conferences for both my kids recently and I’m happy to say that how pleased I am with their performance in school and the wonderful comments received from their teachers.  I’m very proud of both of them.

♥  Have any of you ever heard of Jamberry Nails?  I just signed on to be a consultant with them.  I “attended” an on-line party that one of my friends had and I was hooked once I tried the product, which are nail wraps in tons of colors and designs.  I’m super hard on my nails, especially from cleaning houses, and these keep my nails looking nice.  I even just wear them as accent nails along with regular polished nails.

I’m just learning how to do this whole gig but will be ready soon to hold parties.  What I like is that many people just have Facebook parties, which is the type of party I “attended”.  There are party games and lots of interaction and guests can get a sample to try too.  I’ll share more information once I’m ready to go if anyone is interested in trying them.

And hey, if it doesn’t work out, I can just be a hobbyist and get a discount on the wraps for myself.  :-)

♥  My son is in a club at school called the Leo’s Club.  They’re like junior Lion’s Club members.  They host or volunteer at events throughout the year to raise money for different charities.  Every year they volunteer at our local VFW and help the Lions with their annual spaghetti dinner.  We just attended that this week and it’s always a good dinner and fun time.

♥  Both my boys are doing well learning their new instruments.  My oldest is learning the violin and my youngest, the trumpet.  Their piano lessons are paying off as they’re picking up learning the new instruments quickly.

My youngest is using his Grandpa’s trumpet from when he was young and the trumpet and case is a little larger than the ones today.  He can hardly carry the case.  Once a week he rides the middle school bus with his brother for lessons at the middle school.  It’s so cute to watch my older son run back and grab his trumpet from him to help him while they run to the bus stop and get on the bus.

♥  One of my boys is having a friend sleep over tonight.  Since there’s no school today, his friend is being dropped off early and we’re all going to head out to IKEA and the Mall of America for a little while.  This gesture is a little selfish on my part because I have a 30% coupon for one of my favorite jewelry places out there.  ;-)

♥  I joined the Prayer Shawl ministry that just started up at our church.  This will give me a focus to get back to knitting and crocheting.  Do I feel like an old lady now!  ;-)

♥  My job as the administrative assistant at our church is going well and I really like it.  I only clean houses one day a week now and it’s a nice change.

Well, that’s about all I have time for.  Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend!!

Thank you, Great Spirit.
