I Don’t Know, The Same Things You Don’t Know (part one) -Sunday Stealing

So many....I'm sure it has to do with driving...Yeah... People who speed up while you try to merge or change lanes.

2. Where and when were you born?
Pasadena, CA July 25, 1947

3. Where did your parents meet?
They met on a blind date, New Years Eve,1945 and married June 1946. Dad was still in uniform when they met and made for a very handsome Marine. Mom worked for Southern Electric and thought he was quite a catch.

4. Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like in four words?
My brother Rob is my only sibling. He is 7 years younger than me.
Funny, Smart, Good-natured. Sweet.

5. Where do you live now, and with whom?
Small town in southwest corner of MO.  I live with the inimitable Mr Bankerchick and Gwennie and Totem, our furbabies.

6. What is your occupation?
Um....Retired Banker Chick

7. Write a full description of yourself.
Isn't that what I'm doing?

8. To which social class do you belong?
Middle class senior citizen.

9. Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses?
I'm old, of course I do! Well maybe not any diseases.

10. Are you right- or left-handed?
I am right handed.

Sweet and melodic or shrill and grating depending on whether you ask me or Mr BC

12. What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently?
"Really?"  "I think so" "Lovely" "You've got to be kidding!"

13. What do you have in your pockets?
 I'm still in my night gown, so no pockets.  Most of my pockets are decorative, so I don't have much more than a tissue in them.

14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?
Um.... you know.... I talk with my hands and rather loudly. Mr BC hates when I don't hear (ignore) him.  I am excellent in tuning things or people out. 


  1. A lovely read, Thank you for playing!

  2. I love your answers, especially #11 LOL

  3. Yeah, a really good read. I like the story about how your parents met.

    I talk with my hands too and I can get quite animated.

    Check out my answers.

  4. I wonder how our siblings would describe us?

  5. Good question, Kwizgiver. My sister was 24 when she died. She would be 65 now. I have often wondered what she would be like...and if we would have been closer in our older years than we were growing up.

  6. I love reading these things! I'm totally a hand talker too. Enjoyed the story of your parents' meeting.

  7. Oh boy, don't get me started on No.1 about inconsiderate drivers.

    I absolutely loved your reply to No.11.

    I'm wondering who asks all these questions.
