Sunday Stealing: the unknown

Have Mercy

In this week’s Sunday Stealing post, I call it the Unknown based on the first question. Swap Bot developed the quiz.

1. Do you believe in the unknown and Mystics?

Sure, many people do. They may call it God, the Force, magick, voodoo, Fred, or whatever they believe, and I’m fine with that.

2. How do you tell time? Do you use a watch or your phone, and why?

I have a difficult time keeping track of my watch. Still, I prefer the watch over the phone because I can tell time by turning my wrist instead of pulling the phone out of my pocket. I’ve had conversations with people IRL who tell me vehemently that using the phone is better, and I don’t understand it.

3. How do you stay cool in the summer?

That’s why Allah created air conditioning. Huge swaths of the United States wouldn’t be populated if air conditioning didn’t exist. I don’t care that it’s a “dry heat;” 104 F/40C is brutal on me.

4. Egg yolk or white?

Both. Scrambled, omelets, et al. Imagine deviled eggs with just one part.

5. What is your current on-repeat song?

I don’t have an on-repeat song. That’s the whole idea of having literally thousands of albums, creating sonic variety. That said, I’ll pick a song I’ve played recently that I might have played more than once when I got the album. Have Mercy by Loretta Lynn from the Van Lear Rose album.

6. What is your favorite sound in the world?

The inverse pedal point in music.

7. What’s the must-have-items in your bag?

When I leave the house, I only need to carry three items—wallet, keys, and phone—and I say them aloud as a mantra.

Pants first

8. When dressing up, which one do you put on first: pants or tops?

Pants. Oddly, this reminds me of a segment of All In The Family when Archie and his son-in-law Mike debated whether you should put on socks, socks, shoes, shoes, or socks, shoes, socks, shoes.

9. what is the one thing you wish you could take back?

The 2016 US election

10. what is your pet peeve?

Rude people.

11. have you ever been ashamed after buying something frivolous? What?

Nah. It is what it is.

12. what dessert would you eat even if you were beyond full?

Apple pie a la mode.

13. sweet or spicy?

Generally sweet.

14. Which website do you visit most often?

Other than Google? It might be News From ME from Mark Evanier because he often posts multiple times daily.

15. Which countries/states have you visited, and which one did you like the most?

I have visited about 30 states. My favorite was Maine. I’ve only been to Canada, Mexico, France, and Barbados; I’ll pick the latter because it was lovely and cost me very little.

  1. Phone versus watch – either is good to me. I don’t get why people pontificate about such a choice.

    My pocket mantra is identical to yours.




  2. I would love to visit Maine! I need to put that on our travel list. In Alabama, we have wet heat most of the time. Sometimes when we step outside in the summer, it feels as if someone threw a hot, wet blanket right in your face! Back when I was a kid, we only had a couple of window air conditioners. I truly don’t know how people lived in Alabama without central air!
