It's been a couple of Sunday's since I did a Sunday Stealing and since I'll be in the hospital for a while after my surgery this week, I'm jumping in.
Cheers to all of us thieves!
Sunday Stealing: My-New-Favorite-Author Questions
Where do you go to decompress from the world? The answer is simple...the beach!
If given $10,000, what would you do with it? Pay off my bills and take my son and granddaughters on a Caribbean vacation.
What is one major renovation you would love to make on your house? A new kitchen
What is one movie that you love and didn’t expect to love? Genius. Just watched it the other night and when Ray brought it home from Redbox I thought, "why did he rent this"? It was great. What a performance by Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Jude Law. Very surprising movie.
What is the oldest knick-knack you own and what is its sentimental value? I have most of that in boxes in the garage. I believe I have antique pitchers that my mother gave me from her mother's house.
Do you own any books you keep out of obligation, but actually hate? No. All the books I have are favorites.
How many countries have you visited outside of the one you live in now? Two. Canada and Bermuda
Have you ever read only part of a book, but claimed you’ve read the whole thing? Yes. When I was giving books for training classes, I would just skim it.
Have you ever spent a lot of money on something? What was it? Yes. I bought myself a $1200 watch when I got a big promotion years ago. It was such a poorly made watch. Never again.
If you could change your name, what would it be? When I was a teen, I hated my name and wanted to be called Sam.
What is a nickname a former (or present) lover gave you? N/A
How do you style your hair? If you just would say "cut" what style is it? My hair is longer and with highlights. I wear the beachy look. Wind blown.
How many colors are you wearing now? 2
What's one piece of fiction that changed your life? Great Expectations. I never imagined that Dickens could write something I would be interested in. I loved it.
Is there anything that has made you unhappy recently? Yes. All the negative and useless comments on Facebook and blogger about politics over this last election. Enough already.
Tell us about the job that you did before your current one or last one.The job I did before I moved south was pretty big. I ran two departments in a mortgage closing/operations center for a huge title company. I had 37 people under me at one point. My job was to get production up and reduce errors. 10 hour days and a great support staff that I hand picked got those departments running like clockwork with an error rating of 98-100%.
What was the last song to get stuck in your head? Dead Flowers by the Rolling Stones
What is your least favorite thing to do that you have to do everyday? Make the bed. Ray sleeps as if he's wrestling an alligator and it's like making the bed from scratch every single day. Ugh!
Best time of your life? It's all been the best and more to come!
What are you most looking forward to in the coming year? That's easy. I look forward to being able to walk well again and climb stairs so I can enjoy vacations with my granddaughters.
Until next time, remember...
