Sunday Stealing: Friday Questions


1. Have you ever tried to learn (or re-learn) a foreign language as an adult? Which one? What worked for you?  I took Spanish in college and wanted to re-learn as an adult.  I went through Rosetta Stone to re-learn and I found I just did not have the time to dedicate to learning again. So I gave up.

2. Do you donate blood? Do you know your blood type?  I cannot remember my blood type.  I have not given blood in many years.

3. Have you ever been in a play or musical? Yes to both.

4. Do you use certain text or ring tones for specific people? Who gets their own? Or do you just use the default on your phone? I have one text tone and one ring tone for everyone.  Each of my contacts does have their own photo listed with their name though.

5. When did you get your first digital camera? Do you still shoot on actual film, or all digital now? I was nearly 30 years old when I got my first digital camera.  I have not used actual film since the early 1990's.

9. What kind of milk did you drink, growing up? And now? Growing up we had milk fresh from the farm.  Our neighbor was a farmer and his Ranch Hand (Slim) would bring us fresh milk. As an adult, I drink store brought milk; usually whole, sometimes 2 percent.

  2. My mother used to buy milk, and also eggs, from a farmer after we moved to where there were farmers again. And, I bought them from him right after I was married. I miss the interconnections of this sort of community.

  3. I tried DuoLingo and found the same thing--I could not devote the time that it required. Purely my fault!

  4. We are alike on #13. I'm not sure that's a good thing. I would love to clear out the clutter, but most of it is actually useful or it has sentimental value. Maybe I just need a bigger house? LOL

    My style is very eclectic. I like all the decorating shows and magazines that tell you if you love something, you should buy it because it will work in your home somewhere.
