Stormy Sunday Stealing

Time once again for Sunday Stealing! This one is called the Useless Questions meme.

Have you ever written a song?
Yes, I wrote a blues tune in college when I got stood up by a guy I was crushing on. It was not good.

Have you ever been in the opposite sex's public toilet?
Yes, but only by accident.

Are you superstitious?
Well, I know that the Caps win when I wear my Rock the Red socks, but no, I'm not superstitious at all!

What's the most daring thing you've done?
I ran away (okay, not really) and joined the circus.

Did you have a baby blanket? Do you still sleep with it?
I did! It was blue, but no, I do not still have it. I think my mother finally took it away from me when it was close to disintegrating.

Have you ever tried to cut your own hair? If yes, how’d it work out?
Yes. Badly.

Have you ever sleepwalked?

If you could be any age, what age would you be?
Hmm... I think I would be 60. Oh, wait!

What is your dream car?
Bugatti Veyron.

What is your favorite cartoon of all time?
Rocky and Bullwinkle
, also known as Moose and Squirrel.

If you were in a car sinking in a lake, what would you do first?
If I didn't have my emergency window-breaking hammer, I'd wait until the passenger compartment was full of water (yes, I'd be holding my breath), then I'd open the door. I saw this on Mythbusters.

Have you ever ridden in an ambulance?
Yes -- I was nine and very excited to be going to the hospital in an ambulance! I wasn't hurt very badly, thank goodness, but the ambulance was called just the same.

How many foreign countries have you visited?
Let's see... Canada, France, Italy, Monaco, Vatican City (yes, it does so count!), Switzerland, and Finland. I'm not counting Ireland or England, because I just transferred planes in those countries.

If you fell into quicksand, would you try to swim or try to float?
Neither. I'd holler for Lassie, who would alert Timmy, who would tell his Mom and Dad, who would get a rope and come rescue me!

Do you talk in your sleep?
Rarely. I know that I have tried to scream in my sleep, but it generally comes out of my mouth as a groan, or so Joe tells me.

Have you ever slipped in the bathtub?
No. I have, however, fallen off the toilet.

If you could invite any movie star to your home for dinner, who would it be?
Harpo Marx.

Have you ever re-gifted?

If you could attend an Olympic Event, what would it be?
Ice hockey!

If you could participate in an Olympic Event, what would it be?
Women's ice hockey! Of course, first I'd have to get good at skating, then learn how to play the game, and then get good at it, all of which is unlikely at this point. Alas.

If you won a $5,000 shopping spree to any store, which store would you pick?
I'd split it between Target and Igigi.

What do you think is your best feature?
I have great legs!

If you were to win an Oscar, what kind of movie would it be for?
A comedy along the lines of Young Frankenstein.

Which of the five senses is most important to you?

Would you be a more successful painter or singer?
Painter -- I can slap two coats on a wall with the best of 'em!

How many years will/did you end up going to college?
I went to college for four years.

Have you ever had surgery?
Yes -- appendectomy, gall bladder, and hernia.

What do you like to collect?
Hundred dollar bills. Unfortunately, my collection is very small. Like nonexistent.

How many collectibles do you have?
I have some very pretty collectible crystal salt dishes. One or two might actually be worth a couple bucks.
