Sunday Stealing: 11/11 Meme

Today we ripped off a blogger named Zoe from the blog Mama Geek. She states that she got it from Mummylish. 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!

The idea of the 11 Questions Meme is that you are given a set of 11 questions to answer by a fellow blogger , and then once you have answered them you have to think up 11 questions of your own to ask, we consider that part of the meme a bonus and optional, so.. feel free to come up with 11 questions, ONLY if you feel like it. Dead-Until-DarkFun stuff. –NO… I don’t believe I will--

  1. What is your favorite possession? I have several things that mean a great deal to me. Things that belonged to my grandparents. Things that my kids have given me. Over the last few years, I’ve lost a great deal of ‘things’, it forces you to know what truly has value.
  2. Do you like to read? If so, which books do you love best? I love to read. I enjoy books that vary with my moods. I enjoy murder mysteries, stories of international intrigue and historical biographies and novels. I’m currently working through the Sookie Stackhouse Novels by Charlaine Harris.
  3. Do you have any pets? I currently own a pair of rescue kitties; Reuben & Cleo. They are now one year old and they are both enjoyable companions and highly annoying beasts.
  4. What was your favorite food as a child? Is it the same now? My favorite food has been, is currently and forever shall be… PIZZA.
  5. What is your favorite thing about blogging? I enjoy exercising my brain to put my opinions and experiences into hopefully well crafted words. I’ve been out of practice, so I’m taking baby steps through meme’s. I also enjoy connecting with other bloggers from around the world and reading about their experiences and opinions.
  6. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? I want to live in the mid-Willamette Valley of Oregon. Near the coast and near Portland, without being too congested. Someplace like McMinnville or Newberg.
  7. What is your favorite number? 42… it is the answer to everything.
  8. Which of these things would you find hardest to give up for a year? Chocolate, reading, coffee or smoking? Chocolate… meh, Smoking… I only smoke socially. Reading would be difficult, but Coffee, I barely survive until 9am without getting a splitting headache. No, that doesn’t mean I have a problem, you have a problem if I don’t have some good coffee.
  9. If you could make your life into a movie, what would you name it.. and who would you want to play you? “Those Who Matter Don’t Mind” and I would be played by Richard Gere.
  10. If you had £20,000 for a shopping spree, what would you buy? According to current exchange that would be $32,000 and some change. I would make the co-pay on Lap Band tumblr_lwt9iufKGm1r92bbio1_500surgery, buy a gym membership and get new clothes to fit my svelte physique.
  11. If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be? President Barack Obama

You can find the original meme here.


  1. Hey, John! We do seem to ride on the same train of thought, don't we?

    You know, I very nearly answered #11 with President Obama, as well. However, I think discovering the truth about Ryan would depress me less than discovering the truth about how and why our great country runs the way it does at times.

  2. I like Sookie Stackhouse.. I have some of the books..we have the same answer at #11

  3. Kittens are the best. I have a rescue kitten too. He will be 6 months old soon. He helped heal my heart after losing my 19yr old cat Harley. :( -- Great answers...Happy Sunday!

  4. I read Sookie Stackhouse the first books, but the ones she has put out lately have not been as good, so I quit spending the money.

  5. Do you have Five Guys Burgers and Fries in your part of the world? The POTUS has been known to indulge in their cheeseburgers in both Chicago and DC. If you get the chance to have lunch with him, I recommend you follow his lead. (Though he likes mustard on his, and I got with BBQ sauce.)

  6. Lunch with President Obama is a great choice! I know he likes his burgers medium rare. lol. Have a great week!

  7. Why is 42 the number for everything?

  8. love the name of your kitties how cute
    come see my answers at

  9. John, you seem to be a hoopy frood who knows where his towel's at. Meeting people like you makes blogging worthwhile.

  10. No, that doesn’t mean I have a problem, you have a problem if I don’t have some good coffee. <---- Awesome answer!!! LOL

    What a fun read, thanks!
