Sunday Stealing – The Fall Meme

When I looked at this my first reaction was 'Nah – not this week, questions not for me' then I saw that Janet over at Just Jotting has completed it and decided not to be outdone! As Janet says, this is written by somebody completely outside of my demographic but I have to be honest here and say that I love the way that Sunday Stealing brings people from all over world to my Ramblings! If you are visiting me for the first time – welcome, please leave a comment to say hello and I'll take a look back at your meme! If you are a regular say hi as well!

OK –Here goes nothing...

It's not really fall in until... (I'm going to ignore the word 'in' 'cos I think it's crept in by mistake) The leaves start to turn and the mornings have that wonderful damp musty smell about them although the air is bright and crisp.

What did you need to do in the waning days of summer for it to feel complete? Tidy away the garden, clear the flower beds and the pots and pack away the garden furniture.

A person I know was wrong for me but about whom I frequently thought after a break-up was...lordy, that would be a very long time ago, best let sleeping dogs lie I think for that one!

If you could only attend one major sporting event what would it be? I regularly attend football (soccer) matches but would really love to attend a men's final at Wimbledon (tennis!)

Assuming that you write an anonymous or partially anonymous blog, by what non-physically identifying characteristics might you be identified in a bar? I'm another one that doesn't go to bars!

Most blogs cover some sort of niche – personal, political, dating, culinary, etc. What topic, if any, would you like to address on your blog but doesn't fit into your niche? Oooh – tough one. Perhaps subliminal messaging but certain people would have to read it and guess it was aimed at them (sorry – that's a really weird answer but I have my reasons...)

If you could manipulate the time space continuum and give as many as three pieces of advice to a younger version of yourself, what advice would you give and to what age of you? Take some exams after you finish school, don't waste time on people who will only break your heart and make the most of now!

Who among your friends do you really wish had a blog because their stories, or perspective on something ought to be shared? I do have somebody in mind who will probably read this but I'm naming no names!

If you were to take an e-cation (vacation from the trappings of our electronic world,) and assuming that employment obligations would allow it, how long of a break could you take? What would you miss the most, the least? The tons of e-mails that hit me at work – how did we manage before them? Oh yes – we spoke to people!

On September 11th of this year, I attended a couple of parties and was somewhat conflicted by the fact that this ignoble anniversary shall pass with it being just another day in the eyes of many (and in some ways my own eyes as well.) Thoughts? Life has to continue – deal with events & anniversaries the best way for you.

How high are your walls? Who was the last person to scale them? What tools should would-be climbers have on their belt? Mmm – are these metaphorical walls or garden walls?? Metaphorically my walls are quite low so no equipment needed! My garden has fences – so tweezers to remove splinters would be a good idea!

The sexiest thing a man or a woman can say to you (or has said to you) is: Now that would be telling...and I'm not telling!


  1. I like "Now that would be telling" LOL

    And I added "Texas" with the 'in' you ignored.

    Great post. I too thought the same, this is not one for me, but went ahead and posted my answers anyway. It turned out well, I think. As yours did.

    Come on over if you can. I'd love a visit from you.

    Got in through the front door but couldn't get in from Twitter

  3. Love all your answers, but the best is your answer to the walls - splinters! Hah!

  4. Your "how did we manage before them? Oh yes – we spoke to people!" is SO true. Good job on a rough meme...

  5. I felt like a complete dunce when I answered the wall question. I took it way too literally. I think it had to do with the time....yeah it was late at night and I was too tired. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

    Thanks for sharing yours! :) It was nice to 'see' a new face stop by. :)


  6. love the tip make the most of now
