Questions and Kobayashi Maru .. Sunday Stealing.

Sunday Stealing has stolen back into our lives! Here we go.....

Hi! I'm your host Bev Sykes of the blog "Funny the World". . Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. Cheers to all of us thieves!

Questions Stolen from 9gag

1. What is your favorite color?  I think probably very pale lemon yellow. In my first house I had an off white sofa set that looked as if someone had made long paint splatters across it in muted, almost pastel shades of baby yellow, baby spring green and a pale pale orange. It was beautiful and got many compliments. The dining room had upholstered chairs in pale baby yellow. It all looked so lovely.

2. If you could get on a plane tomorrow and travel anywhere, where would you go?    Wales

3. Were you closer to your mother or to your father   
Neither. I was closer to my Grandparents.

4. What is your favorite meal (savory and dessert)  I don't have a real favorite as I enjoy many kinds of foods.  I like Chicken Francaise if it's made right.
I don't eat dessert.
5. Can you wink with each eye?  (How about curl your tongue) Only one eye, yes to tongue.
6. Beach or forest? Beach, Forests have Sasquatch ! Seriously, though I do believe that Sasquatch is real, both have their good sides and I used to camp in the forests in the mountains in Utah all the time. Loved being high up in the mountains seeing those dinner plate sized stars in the deep darkness.

7. City or farm? Both, they each have their charms and I enjoy both of them.
 8.  (I am  again employing the Kobayashi Maru option here and changing this question, which I don't like.)
  Would I rather go to a movie and dinner or stay home and watch movies online and snack.    I like to do both. I like doing tons of things and don't believe in limiting myself to just a few things. Lately, I have been limited but, who knows, that could change!
9. Would you rather always be overdressed or underdressed?   A bit under dressed I think.
10. If you could pass alone one of your attributes to your children, which would it be? I think I have already that is deep religious belief.
11. What are you most insecure about? Answering questions like this on a public forum.
12. What are you afraid people see when they look at you?  Not really afraid of anything like that.
13. What is the saddest you’ve ever felt? Death of my children.
14. Would you rather have your own private island, or your own private jet?
Private Island.
15. How do you think you will spend the day today?  (I have changed this question using the Kobayashi Maru principle yet again.)   Today I will work on my computer and do some painting.  I am also in the middle of cleaning my whole house stem to stern.
Thank you  Bev for hosting Sunday Stealing!

Tonight Tuesday 4 questions will go up.

Buttons n' Bows

Howdy Partner,
Today's Saturday9 is all about Buttons and Bows.. or well, no it's not really. But it is about right here!
questions inspired by that song which you can hear

1) The lyrics extol the beauty of "rings and things and buttons and bows." When you're
getting dressed, do you give much thought to accessorizing?
Yes, I do.   I like to look nice when I go out or even just stay at home. I'm not fond of the current trend of sloppy dressing.

2) Dinah Shore sings that she doesn't want to live where the cactus hurts her toes. Sam can sympathize, as she has a blister on one of her toes from where her winter boots rub. Do you have any aches and pains to report this morning?
None that anyone would be interested in hearing about.

3) Dinah was such a popular entertainer that people were surprised to learn she earned a degree in sociology from Vanderbilt University. What is something we'd be surprised to know about you?
I really have no clue.

4) Dinah's was the best selling version of this song, which was introduced by Bob Hope in the movie  The Paleface.   Hope had success early in his career as a song-and-dance man on Broadway. Are you better at telling jokes, singing or dancing?
Better at dancing, then singing. Joke telling..not at all.

5) Both Bob and Dinah donated their time to entertaining the troops in WWII. It was during a USO tour that Dinah met and fell in love with actor George Montgomery, who was serving in the Air Force. They were married for 20 years and had two children. Their daughter followed her parents into show business and became an actress. If a young person asked you for career advice, what would you tell them?
Find a job that you can work in anywhere and at any age.

6) Dinah was an avid golfer and even sponsored an LPGA tournament. She was also an excellent cook who hosted TV cooking segments. Which would you find more relaxing -- an afternoon on the golf course or in the kitchen?

On the golf course. I like being outdoors. I always wanted to play golf too.

7) In 1948, the year this record was a hit, Scrabble was introduced. Do you prefer word games, card games, board games or jigsaw puzzles?
I like games that I can play with people.  I like jigsaws when I am alone.

8) Also in 1948, LPs (33 1/3 rpm records) were introduced. Do you have any vinyl records in your home?
Yes but now my daughter has the bulk of my collection which extends back to records my father owned in the 1930s.

9) Random question -- Which of these would you consider the greatest insult: to be called boring, untrustworthy or stupid?

I wouldn't want to be called any of them.

Tomorrow is Sunday Stealing.
