Sunday Stealing: High School

This week's Sunday Stealing was stolen from The Question Meme.

1. You are back in high school... what are you doing after school lately?

Basketball practice and/or cheerleading practice.  

2. Do you do homework early or late? Do you really study?

I did my homework early and got it out of the way.  I did study, but not much.  

3. Do you go to the games? Football? Basketball.. what is your favorite to attend?

My high school did not have football.  We had baseball, basketball and volleyball. My favorite to attend was basketball.

b. Do you go to the dances? Prom? (what'd you wear?)

I went to a few dances and two proms.  I don't remember what I wore to the dances but to one prom I wore a red dress and the other prom I wore a white dress.  

4.Lunch! What are we having today? What is your favorite lunch?

My favorite lunch was pizza. Now that I am thinking about pizza, that is what I want for lunch.

5. What kind of music do you like the best?

I listened to a wide variety of music in high school (and I still do).  However, I listened to country music the most because my parents did.  

6. Does the radio play in your car and if so what station or kind of music plays? Does music play in your home often?

At home, mom listened to a lot of country music. I liked to listed to KSHE 95 (a rock station that aired from St. Louis, MO) and KTJJ (a local country station).  

7. What do you think of the music played in restaurants or stores? Do you find it relaxing or annoying?

I find most music that is played in restaurants or stores to be very annoying. In restaurants, the music is usually too loud to hold a conversation and in stores, the music distracts my focus.  

8. What part has music played in your life? What kind of music played at your wedding or at parties you have been to?

Music has played a small part in my life. I honestly cannot remember the music that played at parties I have been to.  I did not have any music at my wedding.

9. Is the farm for you? How about a ranch, a village or a city? Which is your choice and why?

As a kid I lived in the county but not that I am an adult I prefer to live in the city. I like the convenience of living in the city.  

10. A short auto trip for the weekend with friends or a long vacation? Where would you go?

A long vacation to somewhere with a beach would be awesome. Possibly Florida. Short trips are spent with family or to visit family.

11. The quiet life at home with a cuppa and TV or a good book or a night out with friends? Which sounds good today?

A quite life at home with a cup of coffee and a good book always sounds good to me.

12. You have a choice of dinner and a movie or a game of cards and snacks at the neighbors. Where are you going tonight?

Dinner and a movie.

13. Is there a hero or character on TV, in a book or a movie .. or even on all three, that you are especially like? What do you find attractive about them?

No, not that I can think of.

14. Was there a book that was better in movie form? How about a movie you thought didn't live up to the book?

I cannot think of any book that was better in movie form. The Green Mile by Stephen King came close though.   Personally I feel the Harry Potter movies did not live up to the adventures in the books.

15. When you choose a book, program or movie which subject it is most likely to be: science fiction, mystery, romance, comedy, documentary, etc.? What draws you to a particular book or movie?

The subject I choose depends on my mood at the time, though I tend to lean towards comedy, science fiction and mystery.  I am drawn to a particular book or movie based on a few things, like the cover of the book, the movie review, the author, the director or the actors/actresses/


  1. The Green Mile--I had forgotten about that--I liked the movie and the book equally.

  2. I'll have to read The Green Mile. Saw the movoie.

  3. I thought the last Harry Potter book in particular was written with movies in mind, at least, it felt that way to me. I have not had pizza since November 2019; I would love to have one! (Battling a reoccurring ulcer.)

  4. Isn't it funny? You want to live in the city for the conveniences, I want to move away because it's never quiet.
