Cheers to all us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Double Stealing Meme

1. If you could turn back the hands of time to correct one wrongdoing, what event would you choose and why?
I would go back in time to correct something I didn't do...Tell Frank more that I trusted him. I never got the chance...he was killed in action during the Viet Nam War. I oftentimes think of him....after all these years, I still miss his presence.

2. Are you one for tradition? If so, what traditions do you strongly believe in? If not, what makes tradition hypocritical?
Mostly, my traditional decorating for holidays [even tho it's just two of us at home now]. I believe in a cheerful home, and putting out decorations makes me and Bud thankful to see another Christmas, Halloween, 4th, St. Pat's Day, etc. etc. -- during the seasons, even now, when both our kids now have left and it's us two for whom I decorate. Oh and I still slave spend hours in the kitchen cooking and preparing a large turkey dinner for us on Thanksgiving the tradition, is observing holidays!!

3. You were taking part in an event and you had to crossplay, who would you crossplay as and why?
I think you mean cosplay? I'd never heard of crossplay before. But if it's cosplay then I'd probably do something Shakespearean if the event was in that timeframe. If it was something that was general, I'd probably do a mime type clown...or perhaps some lady in a blacksmith shop, pounding on hot horseshoes...again, it depends on the event!!!! And the 'why' part of the question is too general also, that also depends on the event. It would be for costume parties, or maybe a charitable event...or working to help educate children.

4. If you only had one day left to live, how would you spend your last day? Would you be tempted to live fatally if you knew you were to die the next day, and if so, what extreme measures would you take?
A day like any other day. Seriously. Sit, relax, and enjoy the last few hours of life stress free. Watch the sky, the clouds, listen to the birds singing, smell the flowers and view their beauty. Things like that. Oh...I may also make sure I finish the book I'm reading. I'd hate to not know the end of the plot in the story!!!

5. What are your top five sinful materialistic items, ones you'd expect from others including those closest to you? Why are each in the position they are in?
TONS of shoes and clothes. Jewelry. Witch collection. Santa collection. Stuffed animals. I don't see them tho as sinful...but the ARE materialistic.

6. I am...Hootin' Anni, and I'm a blogaholic! [everyone say "Hi Hootin'!!"]

7. I feel...with my hands

8. I see...with my eyes [sometimes with the help of corrective lenses]

9. I' money!

10. I love...Bud and my kids and grandkids [not to forget my two fur babies, Tahoe and Winston]

11. I wish...for #9.

12. I think...I'm about done with this. #12 is closer to 'done' that #1 was when I started.

13. I hear...the air conditioner humming right now.

14. I time of the day, any week in the year!

15. I fear...heights and water [yet I love air travel]

16. I hope. . .you enjoyed reading my booty I stole.

    I like to decorate for the holidays as well. I only do Halloween, Christmas and Easter though.

    Hi Hootin'!

    Pizza. Pizza cravings are the best.

    Have a great week!!

  13. Great answers today, Anni. Have a wonderful day.

  14. Hi Anni, I like #2. We make a big deal out of all the holidays. I have always made fluff salad for our family dinner for the holidays and one year I didn't and my word you would have thought the world was coming to an end!

    I think with Nancy at home and being like a little child we still pull out all the stops.

    But who knows, I love Christmas The fouth, Greeting all the little kids at my front door at Halloween etc!!! My son Bill and I just love Thanksgiving it is such a peaceful time. I would still want to have a great time! Hugs Grams

  15. It was a long meme. You did a great job with a tough meme. Cheers!

  16. Hi Anni: Enjoyed your responses, esp. to #5 about the materialistic items. I agree that they aren't necessarily sinful. After all, we need to have a little fun, right?

  18. Very awesome post.
