1. Have you ever walked out of a movie?
No, but I BEGGED John to walk out of Spaceballs, which I thought was incredibly stupid. He wouldn’t.
2. What do you most often use for blogs and blogging: desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone?
My laptop, which might as well be a desktop since that’s where I leave it unless we are going out of town. I also have a Chromebook, which I have used once or twice while out and that I hope to use more.
3. Have you ever had anything stolen from you?
Sadly, yes. My first experience was the most traumatizing. We had a desktop computer stolen from a storage space at the apartments where we lived when Teddy was a newborn. Served us right, I guess, for having such a thing in plain view protected only with a padlock; but what was worse by far was the other thing they stole: a picnic basket my sisters had given me as a wedding present. It had no resale value and the thought of the criminal giving it to his mother or girlfriend was disturbing to me.
Our Victorian house was broken into twice, with a laptop being the only loss both times. And we also had a stroller stolen right out of the front yard there.
Finally, a couple of days after our house burned down, some truly despicable people STOLE THE TIRES off the two singed cars sitting in our driveway, along with some computers that were in one of the cars. They were broken, though. 🙂
4. Do you identify as a member of a particular ethnic group?
I don’t guess Southern qualifies as an ethnic group, does it? I’ve been encouraged to identify as Irish most of my life, but my recent genealogical research informs me that I’ve got healthy doses of German and English. I haven’t worked out the percentages yet.
5. Do you abstain from meat on Fridays?
Only during Lent.
6. Seen anything weird lately?
I have five children. I see weird things on a daily basis.
