Sunday Stealing: The 40 Meme

Today's we meme comes from Lady Nina @ Live the Good Life, Fight the Good Fight. Cheers to all us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The 40 Meme
1. My uncle once :
was a war photographer in WW2. Sadly, I didn't find that out until his funeral.
2. Never in my life :
have I gone bungie jumping. And I never will.
3. When I was seventeen :
I was finishing high school.
4. High School was :
HELL! It was the 70's, bell bottoms, platform shoes, disco. Need I say more?
5. I will never forget :
my parents and my memories with them.
6. I once met :
Rosie O'Donnell and Oprah. (Not at the same time.)
7. There’s this girl I know who :
went to like a bazillion Grateful Dead concerts. She actually followed them for almost a year around the country.
8. Once, at a bar :
I skillfully deflected a slimy kiss from what later become my future brother-in-law. I was only 1 of 5 who dodged that bullet. Bleche.
9. By noon, I’m usually :
blogging and watching AMC.
10. Last night :
I watched the Cubs game with my son.
11. If only I had :
10 grand so I could pay some bills and b r e a t h e.
12. Next time I go to gym/church :
I'm afraid I'll burst into flames if Anastasia and I try to attend church near home. Lol! Not exactly GLBT friendly around here. I'm sure the next time we attend would be for a funeral or wedding. I should check the church we attended in Joliet and see if they got a new pastor yet. It was ok, but I really don't like when a church is going through a transition. I'm hoping to get a Y membership.
13. Susan Boyle :
is AWESOME! Why wasn't she doing local theatre?
14. What worries me most :
My daughter. She just doesn't seem to understand the gravity of some of her actions.
15. When I turn my head left, I see :
The purple drapes that came with the house that we hate, but can't afford to replace. And the leather sofa.
16. When I turn my head right, I see :
The Simpsons on the big screen tv.
17. You know I’m lying when :
I believe in Karma. I typically don't lie. I especially don't lie to Anastasia, it's better to just fess up. And to me omissions are lies, if you are omitting something to be deceptive, it's just as bad as lying. Full disclosure, that's my policy. ;D
18. What I miss most about the eighties :
My Mom.
19. If I was a character in Shakespeare, I’d be :
Certainly not Juliet....I have no idea. Were there any dykes in Shakespeare?
20. By this time next year :
I hope my daughter will be healthier and that things will be better for us.
21. A better name for me would be :
What's wrong with Lola? After all it was Ellen's stripper name on her sitcom.
22. I have a hard time understanding :
why if someone is depressed, despondent, feels persecuted and hates their life, why they feel it is necessary to kill innocent people and then take their own lives.
23. If I ever go back to school, I’ll :
I have no idea. I always thought I'd finish my bachelor's degree in Accounting, but I'm not sure I want to do that anymore.
24. You know I like you if :
I don't avoid you.
25. If I ever won an award, the first person I’d thank would be :
My kids.
26. When I compare 80’s rock to 90’s rock :
I AM old. The 70's were better. But if I had to pick between the 80's and 90's, I guess I'd pick 80's.
27. Take my advice, never :
marry my ex-husband. Just take my word on this one.
28. My ideal breakfast is :
Denver Omelette, or an Omelette with FRESH spinach and Feta cheese.
29. A song I love, but do not own is :
I'd like the album, Head East Live! I used to have it on 8-track tape. (That show's you how old I am.)
30. If you visit my hometown, I suggest :
If it's the town I'm in now, sheesh, I have no idea. I guess you could go contemplate your navel over a the village commons. They play muzak 24/7 when they don't have a movie or concert. Now, the town where I grew up, Oak Creek, WI, I have no idea. It's been more than 5 years since I've been back and they didn't really have anything to see. I doubt that's changed much. I'd say drive to Milwaukee and go for a brewery tour. Yah, that's the ticket.
31. My favorite Beatle is :
32. Why won’t people :
be more charitable? You can be more charitable with your time, your money, your choice of words even.
33. If you spend the night at my house :
You'd probably be up late.
34. I’d stop my wedding for :
35. The world could do without :
Thongs. Period. Not even on thin hawt women. I just find them gross, sorry.
36. I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than :
Root for the St. L Cardinals.

Ex-husbands. For real.

purely luck.
40. And by the way :
Thanks for reading!

I enjoyed reading this... should consider doing the same, but I'm too lazy - and since I turn 40 in August, I'm skillfully avoiding anything with the number 40 in it! LOL! :)

Stephanie B said...

I don't know about dykes, per se, but Shakespeare had several women that dressed as men.

Perhaps I should steal this and use it on Ask Me Anything.

Soyun said...

Wow~ What a list! Thanks for sharing this. So enjoyable~

I am Harriet said...

Dude- you stole like half my answers! LOL....You have no idea what is is to live down here in Cardinal country...wth??

Ps. Shakespere was a dyke- didn't you know that?

Babette said...

I remember those 8-track tapes, huge! I was in Grade school then. I like Pink too, she has cool music. It's always interesting reading your answers. Never a dull moment in your blog. :o)

Kelly said...

I love your answers! I agree with many of them.

I so wish I could go to Patricia's gathering Sunday! I'd love to meet you!

Hopefully there will be a next time.

I may borrow this meme...
