sunday stealing: the wtf meme

Sunday Stealing: The W.T.F. Meme

Cheers to all of us thieves!

1. One of my favorite TV shows recently changed the actors who played two characters. Have you ever been bothered by a TV show or movie series changing actors who play a character you love?

YES. i couldn’t stand it when they changed darrin on bewitched. they also changed becky on roseanne, and i couldn’t stand the new becky, even so much to carry the hate over to scrubs. i’m sure there were others but those were the two that came into mind. i know when they introduced becky #2, they made an allusion to bewitched. didn’t like it at ALL. 😛

2. A coworker recently shared a link to a blog listing the “five things you should know before dating a journalist.” As a journalist, I can honestly say the writer was spot-on. What are some things people should know before spending time with you?

that i really do just like to listen. don’t pressure me into telling you stories, just let me listen. also, and maybe it’s because of that, i’m incredibly boring. so spending time with me means you probably have to occupy yourself.

3. What is something you often do without realizing that you’re doing it?

sing. bite my lip. tap my foot. scrunch my face up. 😛

4. Who has the capacity to make you angrier than anyone else in your life, and what in particular does he or she do to make you so angry?

hmm. i really don’t know. i’m not an angry sort of person. there are a couple of kids who try my patience, but no one really to make me so angry…

5. If a fairy waved a magic wand and gave you the house of your dreams, where would it be and what features would it have?

wow. it would be somewhere overlooking the ocean, high enough to not get swept away from a tidal wave, but on very sturdy ground so it doesn’t slip into the water at the slightest rumble. it would be very simple, actually. just a single floor, but spacious enough to escape the others and not feel like they’re bothering you. i think i would like it of stone, so it’d be cooler. oh, and i’d like a maid service, too. 😀

6. What’s a belief that you hold with which many people disagree?

that there has to be something else out there. we can’t be the only things in this whole humongous universe.

7. I used to talk in my sleep. In fact, I could carry on a conversation with someone when I was fully asleep, and my mom used this fact when I was a teenager to find out if I did anything wrong and was hiding it from my parents. If you were talking your sleep tonight, what do you think you would say?

i don’t know if i talk in my sleep, but i do know my niece and my son do. they’re just weird, random things, and when they wake up and you question them about it, they have no idea what they said, which i think is kinda neat, in a weird way. i’ve never tried to get information out of them though! maybe i should. 🙂 but i would probably say something work-related, since that’s all that’s ever on my mind.

8. The fourth installment of the “Twilight” movie series (“Breaking Dawn Part I”) will be released in theaters soon. Movie theaters started selling advance tickets for midnight showings months ago. Have you ever attended a midnight premiere showing of a movie?

my sister and my niece are so into this, so yes, i knew about the midnight showings–it’s all they’ve talked about for weeks. they’ve already seen the movie 3 times since it’s midnight debut three nights ago. me, i just don’t get the hype. and it’s not only for that movie, but for any movie. i’ve never wanted to go to a midnight showing for any movie, not even for pokemon. which i doubt they had one…but still. i guess i’m not that much into movies.

9. On Tuesday, tigers, lions and bears were let loose in Zanesville, Ohio, by their owner before he committed suicide, leading to a hunt in which 49 of the animals, including 18 endangered Bengal tigers, were killed. How would you react if you saw “Caution exotic animals. Stay in your vehicle” being displayed on a road sign?

wow. i didn’t hear about this. they killed them? sheesh. i would freak out if i saw that sign, after looking it up to make sure it was true.

10. If a company opened a theme park aimed at adults, what would you name one of the rides?

well if it’s for adults, then something naughty, right? i’m not creative at naming things, though.

11. Imagine you just moved onto Sesame Street. Which puppet would you want as your new roommate?

snuffy. i’d like to just snuggle into him and braid his eyelashes. the rest would irritate me, i think. although i think i could have fun irritating oscar. he cracks me up, he gets so irritated! burt is another one. heeheehee. but all the little ones–elmo, zoe, baby bear? ugh. keep them far away from me.

12. Have you ever had a weird crush on a famous person that didn’t make sense to you?

all the time.

13. If you get ten minutes to interview any celebrity of your choice, who would you like it to be?

i don’t want to interview anyone. i wouldn’t know what to ask that’s already been asked some ten million times.

14. You’ve just won the complete DVD collection of all the movies starring one actor or actress. Which actor/actress would you pick?

wow. i used to do hugh grant marathons with the movies we had at home, but i know he’s come out with much more since then that i haven’t seen, though i don’t know that i want to? hmm. i just don’t seem to be too into movies any more.

15. Actor George Clooney recently told People Magazine that he doesn’t use Twitter “because I will drink in the evening and I don’t want anything that I could possibly write at midnight to actually end my career.” What is something you’ve said through social media and then regretted it?

i try to really think through what i post and think of consequences of it going out into public. which is probably why i hardly posted! heh. but i try to be sensitive to others, unlike a few i know. but even if i DID post something that i regretted later on…i know how to delete, unlike a few others i know, too.

16. VH1 has re-introduced its hit show “Pop-Up Video,” which gives behind-the-scenes facts for popular music videos. What musician would you be most interested in learning behind-the-scenes facts about?

WHAT?!? I LOVED POP-UP VIDEO!!!! IT CAME BACK?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! oh man oh man when is it?? although the songs they choose now i probably have no idea what they are, anyway. but i LOVE LOVE LOVE getting all the background info on these sorts of things. i even imagined a pop-up movie, once. like, wouldn’t it be cool to be getting all these behind-the-scenes info of what went on in the scene? i would LOVE that. i loved that they did that to LOST replays. thought not really “pop-up” it was more scroll along the bottom of the screen. i loved the pop-ups that would point to things on the screen that you probably wouldn’t have noticed before. i’m dense in that way, not seeing all those stuff–i need it pointed out to me. i would LOVE to watch more movies, if it had pop-up info. man! pop-up video again! woohoo! i need to find it. it was always so interesting, even if i didn’t care for the song. and so hilarious! man! well, to answer the question, any one would be fine with me. i guess i would like it more centered on 80s and 90s music, since that’s what i’m more familiar with. but any musician is fine with me. WOW! i’m so excited. 😀

17. If you stumbled across someone’s personal written journal that was accidentally left in a public place, would you read any of the content?

i might glance at the open page. but i wouldn’t go reading through it.

18. What is the title of a self-help book that you’d never want to see on a store bookshelf?

“how to act like a **** to get what you want.” although i suspect a lot of people wouldn’t even *need* that book.

19. Many media outlets have been asking this question a lot this week… Which Halloween costume do you think will be overdone this year?

well, it’s after halloween…and i honestly still don’t know. i wasn’t really out and about to see what was out there. i heard there was a spike in j crews black turtlenecks, as a lot of people were going to be steve jobs, but i don’t know…i think there would be more vampires and stuff.

20. Should a marriage license have a renewal date or expiration date, like a driver’s license?

i think they should do away with marriage licenses for good. no one respects them, anyway. just let people who want to be together be together.



  1. I thought the second Darrin was better than the first. The first was just so OUT there. Weird and hyper. It was impossible for me to see what someone as gorgeous and calm as Samantha would see in him.
