Sunday Stealing

1.  What is the worst nickname that anyone has ever called you?

The worst part was it was my male teacher, who said it to me so I was even more embarrassed. It was picked up by some of the boys. I hated that man.

20.  What's the most amazing thing you've ever seen?  The Pantheon in Rome last year. Even more than the Vatican or Colosseum.
The Pantheon is a former Roman temple, now a church Santa Maria ad Martyres , in Rome, Italy, on the site of an earlier temple commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus (27 BC – 14 AD). The present building was completed by the emperor Hadrian and probably dedicated about 126 AD. He retained Agrippa's original inscription, which has confused its date of construction as the original Pantheon burnt down so it is not certain when the present one was built. Wickipedia

The following picture were taken by me on our trip in 2015
I don't know why I didn't go out further in the piazza and take a photo of the Front. I guess it was because of the horses, just outside the portico.
This is a huge, awesome and amazing building. It was on my top ten list of places, to see on that trip.


  1. The answer was -99.025. So reaction was the goal no doubt. I would love to see some of the sights in your pictures. Traveling is my favorite activity.

  2. What a horrible teacher! These days he'd be in big trouble for a comment like that.

  3. I remember having a Tiny Tears doll. Don't know what ever happened to her.

  4. I remember those places in Rome for a different reason. After visiting them I was was sick, yes I had sunstroke.
    I didn't have a nickname... least-ways I don't recall one.

  5. I enjoyed reading your answers, well, not that you were humiliated. I had some mean teachers. That's Terrible of your 7th grade teacher! What a jerk.
    Hope you have a sweet week.
