It's Sunday. You know what that means! It's time for Sunday Stealing! Link up today here.
Have you ever clicked on an ad on the side of your screen by accident?: Yes. I seem to do it quite frequently when I'm haphazardly multi-tasking.
When was the last time you were disappointed?: This morning, when I had to wake up. Disappointment is apparently a daily occurrence.
Do you like the smell of rain?: Absolutely love it. Crave it. Indulge in it.
What was the last thing you took a picture of?: My breakfast casserole. I think. It could have been Josh holding Lola. Check out my Instagram...see for yourself! Ha!
When you go to McDonald's, what drink do you usually get?: I don't.
What were you doing today at 2:15 in the afternoon?: Blogging, reading, cleaning up the kitchen. One of those three... I'm not certain.
What's the nickname of your home state?: The Lone Star State. Pretty original, no?
What's the worst type of weather in your opinion?: Extreme heat with no rain in sight. Drought conditions that last for weeks at a time with temperatures soaring over the century mark.
Do you have a Kindle, Nook, iPad or none?: Yes. I own a Kindle Fire. It's awesome.
Would you rather read or write?: I don't believe you can do one without the others. So this question is irrelevant to me.
When was the last time someone took a picture of you?: No idea. I'm typically behind the lens.
Do you own a pair of slippers?: You betcha! They're not glass, however. How in the world they could design an entire fairy tale about a slipper made of GLASS is crazy. Have you SEEN how girls walk in heels? That thing would have shattered and left her with a bloody stub... what WERE they thinking? Make that baby out of leather... and encrust it with diamonds! Now THAT'd be a shoe!
Name something negative that you hate about yourself: I hate that I'm so negative about my body... I need to embrace that it's a work in project. I just really don't like it... yet.
Is your house currently hot, cold or just right?: Just right.
Is there a Dead End road near where you live?: Yes, I live on a cul de sac. That is sort of a dead-end. Why is "Dead End" capitalized? I'd really like to know.
Do you roll your eyes often?: Yes. Like, just now... when I read that.
Growing up, did you see your cousins often?: Yes! I love my cousin, Laura. She's more like a sister to me, however. Love her to pieces!
Where was your first job at?: You ended a sentence with a preposition!!! You're really after my heart aren't ya? Grrrrr.... My first job was working for my grandmother in her ceramic shop. If you're referring to employment outside being paid "under the table" then my first job was at Colter's BBQ in Irving, TX off of Hwy. 183.
When's your birthday?: December 20. Yes, it sucks.
Is life a party to you?: No. Some days it's more like a slow, painful, agonizing statistics class with a foreign teacher whom you can't remotely understand. . . with a pop test tomorrow . . . and ten pages of notes to review. . . written in Cyrillic. . . after you've completed a 1,000 word essay on the proper protocol for attending an Amish wedding out of season.
Who are you tired of seeing in the news a lot? I have grown tired of anything dealing with the Zimmerman case. I have remained completely silent about it because frankly, I wasn't there. I wasn't part of the prosecution, defense or jury. I have to resolve that our judicial system is the best there is and that we have to trust in the process. Sure, there ARE instances where justice was flawed (OJ walking away, perhaps) but Jessie Jackson and his group of race baiters need to back the hell away and try to promote a unified country rather than a racially divided one.
When was the last time you flew a kite?: April 26 at our Cub Scout Pack's campout by the lake. It was perfect and fun!
How long have you had a blog?: Look to the right and you'll see for yourself. Several years.
Have you ever had to call and complain about a product you bought?: Yes, of course. I believe that if you don't provide feedback -- both positive and negative -- companies aren't able to improve upon their manufacturing and such.
