Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

The Scarlet Letters and Curvy Sexy Instruments...Whoa

Sunday Stealing: The 6 Ws Meme


Is[are] easy to love? I had to change it to plural [as in 'are'] 'cause the easiest to love ARE my furbabies

Do you just wanna smack? The one that's Gone Rogue, claiming to see Russia from her house...I'd like to smack her and smack her hard. You betcha. Maybe she'd lose her BEARINGS over the Bering Sea - and STAY in Russia?

Do you trust? No one

Do you talk to when you're alone? Heck I rarely talk in a crowd, so I keep my mouth shut when I'm alone to keep from looking wacko in case someone comes in the room! The only time I'm alone these days is when I'm working on the I may be overheard while playing games on it...the computer cheats I tellya.


Dangerous things do you do while driving? I try to concentrate on the skill of driving...but there are times when out on the long desolate highway that I do let my eyes wonder off the road at the scenery. Oh...and I do tend to drive too fast from the posted limit! Lead foot.

Are you allergic to? Many things...

Is Satan's last name? Gonetohell [NOTE: someone on their blog had Beck...another had Limbaugh---I LIKE their answers better than my Gonetohell!!!]

Is the freakiest thing in your house?...Occasionally spiders and geckos


Is it time to turn over a new leaf? In the Spring to inspect for infestations of aphids.

Will you be all that you can be? I'm not into "Army" stuff...they're wusses. Gimme a Marine...The few, the Proud! Then test me on all I can be!

Is enough enough? When it's spelled E N O U G H....enough already!

Do you go to the dark side? After the lights are off. Or the sun goes down...everything is dark no matter what side I'm on.


Are your pants? My drawer, in the laundry shoot, wearing 'em. Not necessarily in that order.

Is your last will and testament? Lawyer's office & copy in safe deposit box

Is your junk food stash? Top pantry, right side...stay out!!!

Is Carmen Sandiego? Y'know, what with the changing of countries' names all the time and so frequently, I take the 5th on this...


Was the Lone Ranger alone? First he was on radio, then on TV and many thousands of shows...he had no time for anyone else...even Hi Ho Silver was never really by his side in the end.

Was The Scarlet Letter scarlet? Because...Hester is her punishment -for being a cheater! AND the Scarlet Letters are still around in Boston to this day...The Boston RED S-O-X. There's a lesson of implication in here somewhere.

Are musicians sexy and plumbers not? Well now...have you ever really LOOKED at what a musician has in his mouth? Or what they're strummin'? Nice, curvy instruments?!! The tools of a plumber are greasy and covered with slime...what would you'd rather have...nice slick shiny instruments or greasy grimy tools?

Are there no seat belts on school buses? I looked it up in Seat Belts for Dummies just now, it states the buses seats are compartmentalized. So there, you have it. It doesn't take me long to answer a stupid question with a stupid answer. You should really check out these may help you out in further stealing questions.

Would you...

Swim the English Channel for a doughnut and coffee? If not that, what? No -and nothing...Swimming's not important. Have you ever heard of Dunkin' Donuts? I wouldn't swim for ANYthing.

Forgive someone who deliberately hurt you? No, I hold a grudge.

Rather believe a lie if it hurt you less than the truth? If it's a lie, I wouldn't know any differently would I? That's why I trust NO ONE.

Still be alive if you were sucked out of an airplane window? My luck? I'd be sucked out, right into one of the jet engines. Does that answer the question? I'm sure if you don't realize that's a big NO...then, there is probably a book on Sucking Out of an Airplane Window Survival for Dummies out there for you.

  9. Hi Anni.
    Can I join you in that smackfest?

  10. A joy to read as always.
    There was a bad school bus accident here a few years ago. A car driver cut in front of it to exit the interstate. The Bus went off the side of the ramp. Several children were killed and more injured. After investigation, they said that some of them would not have died had they been wearing seat belts. Maybe they will rethink that issue.

  11. To avoid that people think I am nuts, I talk to myself via my cats. If you talk to a cat it looks less stupid then talking alone against the wall, although you would say the same !

  12. Howdy Anni,

  13. i'm right with ya on them furbabies!!! but surely you must trust someone???

  14. I loved the post today, but I have one suggestion for improvement. When speaking of Ms. You Betcha you said she might 'lose her BEARINGS over the Bering Sea - and STAY in Russia'. How about changing the last part to 'and stop Russian around'. Just a thought. Have a great day, Anni.

  15. Hi Anni... Great answers today... Always love reading yours because so many of them make me laugh... Come by today and check out the videos I put on my blog of Christmas lights we saw when driving around in Van Buren... They are spectacular! Have a wonderful Sunday my friend!

  18. I love the Sarh Palin rsponse!

  19. Hello Anni.
    I guess you could say I am crawling back again into the blogosphere after being away for a loooong time, and yours was the first blog I decided to pay a visit. As always, I had a good chuckle at your replies. Never a dull moment here while reading your posts!

  21. Asi es Anny, eso es exactamente lo que escribí , tu español es muy bueno.
    yo utilizo el traductor de google.

  22. Anni,

    Loved your answer to the Sunday Stealin' questions. Yours are much the same as mine would have been. Enjoyed your Unconscious Mutterings.

    Sorry I'm so late dropping by. We were dipping chocolates and making snowballs. Come over to my blog and see. LOL


  23. Hi Anni

    Love your Christmassy header...very Santabratory.

    I have really neglected my poor blog lately and thought I'd better give it some TLC. I am doing the rounds and saying Hi to all my blogger friends.

    Chany I'm glad to be able to read your takes me a while to figure out some of the words, but after a while it comes back to me.

    I have two sisters-in-law that are of the same heritage, and I can understand what they say and write, but for me, I can not speak it fluently as they can.

    Gracias mi amigo!!
