Sunday Stealing: Favorites


Stolen from Facebook

Your favorite songs:  I don't really listen to current music enough to know about it. I like stuff from the 70s and 80s. Billy Joel's Piano Man is my all time favorite song.

Your favorite bands:  Lynyrd Skynyrd, Guns 'n' Roses, Journey, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Three Dog Night, Casting Crowns, Stray Cats, Glenn Miller Orchestra....I have rather eclectic tastes in music, but mostly it's the late 70s and 80s for me.

Your favorite actors or actresses:  Sandra Bullock is just awesome in everything she does and for an actor I think I'd have to say Tommy Lee Jones. He is so good at whatever he plays whether he's being the hero or the bad guy.  

Your favorite books:  Little Women and Gone With the Wind are all-time favorites. I nearly always recommend Lottery by Patricia Wood and in general, I read everything from Janet Evanovich, James Rollins, Nora Roberts, Jefferson Bass, Kathy Reichs, William Kent Kruger, and Craig Johnson.

Your favorite movies:  Dirty Dancing, While You Were Sleeping, Hope Floats, Sweet Home Alabama, A Christmas Story and mostly I prefer comedies (not the crude ones) and adventure (think Indiana Jones and National Treasure).

Your favorite TV shows:  The Big Bang Theory, NCIS, Longmire, America's Got Talent, Swamp People, any of the House Hunter shows, American Pickers, Pawn Stars, and lately we've been streaming a lot of old TV shows on Tubi...with my favorite being the old Fantasy Island show.

Your favorite foods/drinks:  pizza, seafood, steak, Chinese, and Mexican for food and Diet Coke and peach iced tea for drinks.

Your favorite kitchen appliance:  I guess the microwave because it gets used more than anything else.

Your favorite animal:  Dogs

Your favorite scents:  For candles or waxes I like food scents...things that smell like baked goods or fruits. For perfumes I like lighter body sprays (perfume kills my sinuses) and usually choose scents with fruity undertones, nothing heavy. Just to smell...fresh baked bread or chocolate chip cookies, babies, puppies, the beach, laundry that's hung out on the line, the air after a good hard rain, fresh cut grass, freshly sawn lumber....

Your favorite things you do in your free time:  play computer games, blog, read, Bible study, go thrifting.

Your pet peeves:  Those who not only think they are always right, but make a point to try and prove you are wrong. Liars. Those who say they will do something or be somewhere and then don't. The current climate of extreme offendedness.

Things you collect:  Books, ceramic planters that look like dogs, Navajo pottery.

Things you like to swap:  home decorations. Not my books. Don't touch my books!

Places you've been:  Chicoteague and Assateague Islands in VA, Niagara Falls (American and Canadian sides), every state on the east coast, Nova Scotia, British Columbia, several states in the south, New Mexico and Arizona (Navajo reservation). That's all. My family didn't travel when I was growing up and Tim and I haven't done that much traveling.

Places you'd like to visit:  Every state in the U.S., Australia, Greece, Italy, Israel, Egypt, Turkey, Costa Rica, Spain. If it was safe, I'd be up for visiting just about anywhere in the world.

Classes you liked in school:  English, history, psychology, art, and gym.

Crafts you would like to learn:  I'd give anything a try. I admire all the things I see people creating, but somehow I've never gotten involved...no friends who are particularly crafty and the only crafty family I have live far away. I need a craft buddy.

  1. I always love these "favorites" questions because I get to be introduced to so many people, movies, TV, books, etc.

  3. I am going to stop watching Pickers; Mike and Frank had a falling out and Mike also divorced his wife for a younger woman (true) and Frank left the show. ANYWAYS---gurl, you know I am a Skynyrd fan. lol

  5. I am not crafty, either. I have tried, but am a total failure at it.

  6. Hi Stacy, You and I like a lot of the same things. I have read GWTW 7 times and Little Women a few times and seen all the show versions. I am currently watching the Olympics. I love crafting and there are so many groups out there. I am starting a few Bible study that includes graphics to print and use in your journal. I sent you an invite. The study is free, and you can get additional printables or use what you have. I have done two, Lent and Encampment about the Holy Spirit. The current one is called BU or Bible University. Llanet is the teacher and very gifted in the Word. I know you like to journal. Have a great week!

  7. Oh yes, you are right! We could definitely take a road trip together and I would be comfortable with you playing all of the music. I love everything you mentioned.
    I could be your craft buddy too. I want to learn, but I just never have. Loved your answers! Have a nice week.

  8. I quite like a couple of Billy Joel songs too. Guns N' Roses and Glenn Miller? Quite eclectic. I'm not a fan of Dirty Dancing at all; I watched it once and vowed never to watch it again. It is the ultimate movie for ladies - perhaps that's why.

    ALl the places you want to visit are safe (although I've never been to Egypt, Costa Rica and Israel).

    :o)

    Cheers
