How It Went

Ho Ho Sunday Stealing

Well, I've started a bunch on posts this evening and nothing was working, so poop. Here's the latest Sunday Stealing, a reliable source of post fodder.
The I Amuse Myself Meme from FoxyDanish

01. What is something that you have lost recently?: My lunchbox. I had this very nice little padded lunchbox that I got at Target. It was very simple but cute, branded by Rachael Ray. I think it cost $7.00. I left in the the restroom at work, and by the time I remembered that I had left it there I was on the shuttle headed for the Metro. I held on to a faint hope that it would still be there the next morning, but alas! It was not. This is precisely why I only spent seven bucks, because I'd be really pissed if I'd spent $30 on a fancy bento box and lost it.

02. Do you own any self-help books?: Oh sure, plenty. In fact, I'm in the middle of reading one now. It's called Radical Acceptance, and I like it a lot. It's been very helpful in teaching me to cope with the work situation.

03. Do you live near the sea or ocean?: I live 138 miles from the Atlantic Ocean; just about two and a half hours away. Eventually I hope to live about four blocks away.

04. Have you ever spent ages making/writing something on your computer when it suddenly crashed and you lost it all?: Yes, but it wasn't my computer. I began this blog/diary/online journal in 2002 on Diary-X. It crashed in 2005, wiping out every journal on the site. I lost almost one full year of entries.

05. Do you enjoy food shopping?: I don't mind it, but I'm also happy to let Joe do it!

06. What are you having for lunch?: Hmm. I had Italian Wedding Soup today; I don't know what I'll be having tomorrow. I can tell you that I'll be dining in some establishment relatively close to Philadelphia.

07. Are you one of those people who can sleep through anything?: Nope. I'm a relatively light sleeper, alas.

08. Do you like love letters?: Yes!

09. Have you ever received or written one?: No! Actually, I take that back. I have gotten letters from boys I've loved, and I've written a few.

10. How far does your nearest relative live?: My younger sister lives about 5 miles from me -- it's great!

11. Do you like velvet?:  Yes, it's so soft and... velvety.

12. What kind of art do you like?: I like lots of different kinds of art, from Da Vinci to Picasso to Pollack. What I don't like is weird conceptual and performance art.

13. If you went to London, where would you go first?: Gee! Probably Buckingham Palace.

14. If you had to pick one friend who is the most interesting, who would you pick?: All of my friends are interesting; I can't pick just one!

15. Can you think of the meanest thing you have ever done/said to someone?: I have never been mean to anyone, ever. Never. (If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.)

16. What magazines do you read?: I used to read a lot more magazines than I do today. I do read the Washington Post Magazine every Sunday (and do the crossword puzzle), and I read People magazine at the dentist.

17. What/who has been on your mind today?: Tomorrow's appointment.

18. Would you be interested in ghost-hunting?: No; "they scare me with their spooky behavior."
