Sunday Stealing The Questions Galore Meme Part 2

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!!!

Today we ripped off a blogger named Jenni from the blog Juniper's Jungle. It's long, so we will do it in parts. She states that she found this meme Budgies blog. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Take the time to comment on other player's posts. It's a great way to make new friends! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Sunday Stealing: The Questions Galore Meme, Part 2

Cheers to all of us thieves!

21. What was the last song you listened to that wasn’t sung in English? Something from Julio Eglesias.

22. One of our SS players generally leaves a critical comment on our memes. Which is fine. All's fair. Do you let meme authors know when you hate their memes? I leave snide answers for the stupid questions.

23. What TV show would you like to be on? I would like to be on Rosie, hawking my memoir.

24. What was the last video game you played? Does Word Mole count on my BB? If it doesn't, then does Solitaire count on my computer.

25. Have you ever been in a musical? If yes, do tell. ...only in my dreams.

26. Do you follow your own style or everyone else’s? I think it's fair to say I follow my own style.

27. What’s the last store you bought from? Walmart.

28. In retrospect, have you ever let a person use you a lot? Unfortunately, yes.

29. What are you doing two days from now? I better be sleeping, that's a work night.

30. Did you ever believe there were monsters in your closet? No, not monsters. I thought that my Barbie and Ken dolls came to life and they were in my bathroom.

31. When you graduated high school, did you let random people sign your yearbook or just close friends? Anybody who said yes, or asked I let them sign it. I didn't have really any friends in high school.

32. Would you consider adopting a child that had a mental illness? I don't know if I could handle that...considering.

33. Does thinking about death scare you? ...not "thinking" about it.

34. If you died, do you believe that you go to Heaven or Hell and where would your spirit go? I always joke with my friends that we're all (we're all lesbians) going to Pink Hell.

35. Who did you last write a snail mail letter to and why? I haven't yet. I've been thinking about reaching out to a friend I lost contact with several years ago.

36. Do you care what people say or think about you? Don't we all like to say that we don't care? Come on!

37. Have you ever been threatened? Yup.

38. Which side of your family do you get most of your qualties from? My Mom's side. More specifically, from my Mom.

39. What was the last thing with alcohol that you drank? ...I can't remember.

40. Have you ever kept a relationship a secret? Why would someone do that?

Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you Bette Midler!

Why am I thanking Bette Midler? Cuz she ROCKS! Somehow she got Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade to include a performance of her Broadway show Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Gays and Drag Queens performing...who could ask for more? I could barely believe my eyes. I texted my gf, but I was so astounded, that I couldn't move until the performance was almost over. She missed it. But I'll show her this when she comes over later:

We've come a long way baby!
Thank you Ms. Bette!


And now...a Thanksgiving Meme, courtesy of The Weekly Adventures Of An Ordinary Girl.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

1. What are the traditional favorites? For our family it's turkey cooked in the Nesco Roaster with Sweet Potatoes. Stuffing made in the oven (ok, ok, I know it's supposed to be called dressing if it's not in the bird, but we've always called it stuffing. And besides, we all love it crispy on top). And we make regular ol' stuffing like my Mom made, none of this weird stuff. Celery, onions, seasoning, and the liver, gizard and heart chopped up very fine. And chicken broth, no stick of butter (sorry Mom, trying to be healthy, and it's still awesome!) Green bean casserole, roasted brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, whole berry cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie (plenty of Cool Whip) and lattice top blueberry pie. (Pies were frozen and pre-baked courtesy of a friend who couldn't use them. Woo hoo! No baking this year! Thank you! Thank you!)

2. What new recipes will you try this year? Nope, going with the tried and true. Besides, this was all last minute...I thought I was flying solo, but the kids are home sick with colds.

3. What part of the meal do you never compromise? Probably the turkey. It's got to be big enough for leftovers.

4. Who gets to carve the turkey? I carve the turkey.

5. Family style around the table or buffet style and everyone sits wherever there’s room?
Buffet style.

6. How many will be at your table this year? Just the 3 of us.

7. Three best pies for Thanksgiving dessert? Always have to have pumpkin. I love pecan pie, but no one else does, so I never have it. (Now wait a minute...that means it's all mine then, right?) And apple pie. But no apple pie this year. I will probably make it for Christmas.

8. Cranberry sauce… yay or nay? Whole berry cranberry sauce. I tried making from scratch one year and it was just too much hassle.

9. What time do you eat Thanksgiving Dinner? Usually around 3pm, but the bird isn't ready yet..

10. Favorite leftover?
White meat for sandwiches with butter and a sprinkle of garlic salt (just like Mom made). Legs and wings are for snackin' if I can hide them from my son. Lol!
