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. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud) Cheers to all of us thieves!

 Food meme Stolen fromBook Mama, who stole it fromJenefur.  

Thanks to The Gal Herself for the suggestion!

01. CHEESE or CHOCOLATE? Chocolate.
02. BLUEBERRIES or STRAWBERRIES? Blueberries, although Blackberries are my favorite.
03. COFFEE or TEA? Coffee.
04. CORN MUFFIN or ENGLISH MUFFIN? Corn muffin. I am so sick of whole grain English muffins. 
06. YOGURT or CREAM CHEESE? Unless I made yogurt in my Instant Pot, pass, I’ll take the cream cheese. Homemade yogurt mixed with jam or fresh fruit is so much better and much, much less expensive, and less sugar than store bought yogurt.
07. RICE or PASTA? I haven’t had either in so long I don’t know which to pick. I’m 1/2 Italian, so I love pasta, but I also love rice with Chinese, Indian, or Mediterranean food. I can’t choose. I’ve been subbing bean sprouts for pasta and cauliflower rice for rice for so long that I’d probably go crazy and eat a whole pot of whatever I chose.
08. CAKE or PIE? Death by chocolate cake. 
09. GROUND BEEF or GROUND TURKEY? Ground beef. I ate ground turkey for so long that I can’t stand the taste or texture. I still love turkey slices.
10. HOT DOGS or HAMBURGERS? If it’s a Nathan’s hot dog versus my killer peppers and cheese burgers, then I can’t decide.
11. JELLY or MARMALADE? Can I pick jam instead?
12. AMERICAN CHEESE or SWISS CHEESE? American, unless it’s a very mild Swiss cheese.
13. DIET SODA or NO SODA? No soda at all. I drink flavored calorie free sparkling water. Or Spindrift Sparkling Water which has a small amount of real fruit so it has super low calories and very flavorful.
14. LEMONADE or ICED TEA? Unsweetened Iced Tea. 
15. CHERRIES or GRAPES? Cherries.
16. CHOCOLATE QUIK or STRAWBERRY QUIK?  Depends on my mood and what the store has. The other day I wanted a single serve from the dairy case, they only had double chocolate and chocolate. No strawberry. Of course I had the double chocolate. Didn’t really seem like more chocolate, but it was such a treat!
17. WAFFLES or PANCAKES? Waffles cuz of the little squares that hold all that buttery and syrupy goodness. 
18. WHITE BREAD or WHOLE-GRAIN/WHEAT BREAD? Killer Dave’s Whole Grain Thin with seeds is my favorite, but very hard to find around my area.
19. PEAS or CARROTS? Both, together.
20. PUDDING or FRUIT-FLAVORED GELATIN? How is this even a question? Pudding wins every time!
21. COLD CEREAL or HOT CEREAL? Depends on what kind of cold or hot cereal.
22. KETCHUP or MUSTARD? Depends on what I’m putting it on. Burger-ketchup. Pretzel-mustard.
Depends on what I’m putting it on.
24. MAYONNAISE or KETCHUP? On a burger? Both.
26. ONION or GARLIC?  Both.
28. SCRAMBLED EGGS or FRIED EGGS? Depends. If I’m having toast, fried eggs so I can dip it in the yolks.
31. CHINESE TAKE-OUT or PIZZA? Probably Chinese takeout. We eat pizza too often.
32. SUSHI or DELI SANDWICH? Sushi!!!
35. PIE & ICE CREAM or CAKE & ICE CREAM? Cake and ice cream. 
36. WHIPPED CREAM or CAKE FROSTING? Whipped cream frosting.
37. HONEY or MAPLE SYRUP? Depends. In a smoothie, honey. Pancakes, maple syrup.

Sunday Stealing-The Queen’s Meme

The Queen's Meme

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. (Past hosts include: Our first - Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud)  Cheers to all of us thieves!

Stolen from The Queen's Meme

1. January usually has ample amounts of snowfall in parts of the world. Did you ever make snow cream as a kid?  I grew up in a suburb of Milwaukee, WI. We had lots of snow, lots and lots. I have never even heard of snow cream.

2. January is one of the months with 31 days. What are you going to do with that extra day?  Just an extra day, will be just another day.

3.  What is your favorite magazine?  I really enjoyed “The New Yorker” when I had a subscription. Anyone that knows me would never guess it, but I enjoy it.

4.  If you live to be 99 years old, what would you like your life to be like in that last decade??  I would want to be as pain free and mobile as possible and would want to spend time with my family, my children, and hopefully their children.

5. The great world of Wikipedia tells me that scientists claim 99% of all documented species are extinct. Which remaining species in the 1% category would you really like to see extinct.  
Ex- husbands! That would be Awesome!
God created all creatures and I would never presume to make a decision to make any of them  extinct.  God put them on earth for a reason, and presumably, God removes them from earth for a reason. If God wants to do me a solid and make Ex-husbands become extinct, I’m aight with that! And which species in the 99% category would you like to bring back? I can’t make that decision. (But if God makes ex-husbands extinct, keep them that way.)

6. On January 14, 1986 motorists were required for the first time to wear seat belts?
Do you always buckle up? I nearly always buckle up. Why or why not?   I sometimes don’t buckle driving from a store on the end to Walmart. And sometimes to/from the gas station 2ish blocks away.

7. Why did the cow jump over the moon?  To get to the other side?

9. Have you said anything in the last 24 hours that you regret?  Most likely. Right now actually. Spouse is having back injections this week and we are discussing dinner for that night. Me saying we’d do take-out the day after. She says no, THE day. While it was kind of entertaining going back and forth... I’d like a Mulligan.

10. Have you ever written anything on your blog that you wish you could take back?  A lot! Even though I write under a pseudonym, And use pseudonyms for anyone I mention, somehow my ex-husband found it. He somehow manipulated  the kids to tell him about it. He did not take kindly to having his kids’ mental illness’s all over it. For some reason he didn’t like the pseudonym I chose for his wife and the few choice words I had about her. I had to set the offending blog posts to “draft” to shut him up.

11. Are you the blabber or the blabbee? Tell us your most embarrassing blabbermouth moment.  I don’t think I’m either.

12. How important is a cell phone in your life?  I must have one. I don’t have a landline. It’s my computer in my hand on bad days when I lie down with ice.

13. A "cuisine" is typically influenced by and named after geographical regions and cultures. Pretend your blog is a country. What is the name of your cuisine?  The Equator. 😂
14. You are the Blog Paparazzi! Which blogger's real photograph are you most interested in getting?  I don’t really know anyone who participated in this meme.

15. Are you always on time or just a tad late?  I am usually early. Depends what it is, and how I’m doing. I’ve gotten to my dr appointment an hour ahead, and sometimes exactly at the appointment time.

16. Can you think of a time when you were late for something and it was REALLY a big deal? Nope. You mean other than that dream where I wake up and I’m late for school and it’s finals? Actually, I had a job interview at a government agency and my car got towed and I had to take a cab. I did call ahead. I was only a little late. Didn’t get the job, but it wasn’t the job for me anyway. I call those “Practice Interviews”.

17. If you were on your way to work and had five minutes to get there, would you stop in the road to rescue a crossing turtle?  
Not working. Disabled.

18. When you are having a really good day, what usually makes it good?  Everyone getting along.

19.  What is the most annoying Christmas song?  That Mariah Carey song. And the John Lennon one. 🤢 

20. You are Snow White. Which dwarf is your favorite and why?  Happy. Cuz it would be nice to see happy.
