Sunday Stealing: One Long Meme (Part One)

You can play here.

1. The phone rings. Who will it to be?

I've no idea.

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?

Yes, if I've got one (I'm more of a basket person), though I suspect most people do in the UK since you have to put a coin into them to release them which you won't get back if you don't return them.

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?

A listener.

4. Do you take compliments well?

A lot better than I take criticisms.

5. Do you play Sudoku?

I was lured into it briefly by the numbers, which made it look vaguely mathematical, but then I discovered it was just some kind of numerical feng shui. Still I stuck with it for a bit until I got stuck one day and I ended up throwing together a computer program to solve it for me. Once I realised that my program could do it way quicker than I could, it all seemed terribly menial, so I went back to more interesting ways of wasting my time.

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive?

It would depend how close the wilderness was to non-wilderness. If it was a decent distance away, i.e. more than a few feet, then I guess my answer would be no.

7. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?

Once, with school. It was okay, I quite enjoyed it, though I missed television.

8. What was your favorite game as a kid?

Probably soccer, which I used to play all the time, though it's way too much like hard work now, and it's always bored me to watch it.

9. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew she was married, would you?

Most probably not, though I've never been in that situation so couldn't say for certain.

10. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?


11. Do you like to pursue or be pursued?

Pursued. It's a lot less work and there's less chance of rejection.

12. Use three words to describe yourself?

Nice, lazy, sarcastic

13. Do any songs make you cry?

Some songs have made me cry, yes, but not every time I've heard them.

14. Are you continuing your education?

Not formally, no.

15. Do you know how to shoot a gun?

Beyond knowing that there's some trigger-pulling involved, no.

16. Have you ever taken pictures in a photo booth?

Yes, many times; in black and white, colour, and one that made weird drawings of you.

17. How often do you read books?

No set frequency. Depends when I've got the free time and how readable a book is.

18. Do you think more about the past, present or future?

Probably the present or the immediate future.

19. What is your favorite children’s book?

The Cat In The Hat Comes Back

20.What color are your eyes?


21. How tall are you?

Five foot ten, maybe five foot eleven; I can never remember.

22. Where is your dream house located?

I've no idea; maybe in the clouds, under the sea might be cool too.

23. If your house was on fire, what would be the first thing you grabbed?

A fire extinguisher.

24. When was the last time you were at Olive Garden?

I have no idea where or who Olive Garden is.

25. Where was the furthest place you traveled today?

I've only just got up, so I've not traveled far at all.

26. Do you like mustard?

No, but I don't dislike it either.

Your #14 is a lot like my answer, but I worded it quite differently.

My Stealing is posted...I hope you can find time to stop by for a visit.

Happy day.

I'm not so good with the criticism either.

Have a great Sunday.

#21 - Have you grown in the last week or two?

Improbable Joe said...

I love your ultimate sudoku solution!

Rikki said...

The cat in the hat has come back? I had no idea! I'll never leave the house again.

An Eerie Tapestry said...

Thanks for the comments.

Hootin' Anni - Yeah, there were quite a few similar answers to #14 this week, all worded better than mine.

I am Harriet - Most people aren't.

gorgeous nelly - thanks.

PM - No, but when I blog I stand on a large soapbox.

Improbable Joe - Thanks; if anyone else is as lazy as me, there are also websites that will solve sudoku's for you so no need to waste your time writing a program even

Rikki - It should be safe to go out, except for those days when the sun's not shining and it's too wet to play.
