Enchantedly mine

Today we ripped off a blogger named Riona from the blog I Run Seattle. She states she got it from “the even-cooler-than-I-thought” Trish. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Take the time to comment on other player's posts. It's a great way to make new friends! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Just one or two. The rest haze out before I'm awake.

Gossamer wings. Flitter flutter Mary Cicely Barker.

A malong

9. What's in your pockets?
A malong has no pockets

Northanger Abbey. Decrepit castles, a cricket-favoring tomboy far from nursing a dormouse or watering the rosebush, mysterious chests, a mother who did not die giving birth. Jane Austen grills Udolpho. Now I'm gonna google Ann Radcliffe.

17. What's for dinner?
Samok oi! (The fridge is full. Go help yourself)

18. A favorite part of the day is:
When I'm full and reading what I want to read

F for Frangipani

worn on a wrist
or crowning a maiden's head
fragrant and fresh
flawless on a garden shed
fair and dainty
lovely as a bride's bouquet

Enigma Variations

E for Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations

Edward Elgar, Sir!
You hid your Enigma well
Out of its fourteen variations
They have made some commotion
Offering their solutions

Friends portrayed
theme not played....

Edward Elgar, Sir!
 Puzzlingly they would confer.

Edward Elgar - Enigma Variations (Leonard Bernstein - BBC Symphony Orchestra)

Enigma Variations is a set of a theme and its variations written for orchestra - Wikipedia

Vent and graduate

Music Monday: Pomp and Circumstance by Edward Elgar
Monday Mayhem follows

School. Your imagination must have gone rainbow-colored what with everything that school life is. Let me cut to the chase - it's great to graduate.

Monday Mayhem: Ticked off
Welcome to Monday Mayhem. This is indeed the coolest place to be on a Monday. Today we are going to share what ticked us off about. What a great way to vent! Be sure to have fun!

1. What made ticked off the most yesterday? a headache

2. What ticks you off about your local mail service? Hollow parcels. And as if it's not jarring enough the letter that tells you what to expect in the parcel arrives slashed. That's corruption, third-world style.

3. What ticks you off about the opposite sex? Some of them 'care too much' they invade  privacy, threaten independence and ruin plans. 

4. What ticks you off about eating out? Lack of coordination between servers and chefs or is it zero understanding or deliberate ignoring of a request? In the land of chili patches, this scenario is normal:

Guest: pointing to the food on the menu, mai sai prik, dai mai ka? (is it possible not to have chili in it?)
Server: Nods and says dai ka (yes, it's ok)

Minutes later your food comes wafting to your table all biting red with hot-as-hell peppers. Btw, you can't, nor are you supposed to return it. They think it's your fault.

5. What ticks you off about the internet? When it goes off and the provider does not fix it right away. I mean hello... the clock is ticking and you are charging me.

6. What famous person really ticks you off? That pinched nerve in the House of Representatives. She doesn't tick me off. I just wasn't frowning either when the Justice Department placed her on the immigration watch list. Ouch.

7. What ticks you off about people on the road? Unnecessary honking of horns

8. Name something about politicians that ticks you off. Suddenly they need an urgent medical procedure when trial is in the offing or a conviction is imminent.

9. Tell us about a story you have recently heard that really ticked you off. Snooty and ignorant is about a little, cross-eyed ghostwriter naively tweeting how the white wine at a state dinner sucks and that she is asked to edit the president's speech while she is buying make-up. Now I shouldn't be embarrassed to visit Vietnam.

10. Are you feeling less ticked off now? You were right. It was good to vent. I had fun.

Whirl and rescue helicopters

Today we ripped off a blogger named Rose Tulip of the blog named Rose Tulip's Blog. Since it's 31 questions, we will do it in two parts. She did not state who she stole it from. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Take the time to comment on other player's posts. It's a great way to make new friends! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

1. What has been your longest love relationship? A love relationship has yet to come for me. If I ever get lucky like that. Otherwise I'm in love with my happy life nowadays.

2. What was the last gift that you received? A bottle of martini and a red Chanel purse: my duty free loot. A gift from me to me.

3. What do you spend your extra cash on? Museums, books, and cafes I haven't yet tried

4. If you could live anywhere where would you live? Lake District

5. Who's your cell provider? DTAC

7. What's the longest job that you've had? (No parenting does not count!) Monkey sitter

8. If you won the lottery, who'd you call first? Nobody until I have safely tucked it all in. Travel agent after treating close family and friends.

9. If you won, how would you spend your money after investments? Phd scholarships and rescue helicopters

10. When was the last time you went to church (or a religious house)? Two months ago. A lounge pianist friend performed sacred music. I don't get to see such contradiction or transformation everyday so I went.

11. What's the biggest lie that you've heard? Trained to spot propaganda, I thought that whirl on weapons of mass destruction was one.

12. When you go out with your friends, where do you go? Restaurants and neighboring countries we haven't explored

13. When was the last time that you cried? Can't remember; not a crying type

14. What food do you hate? Canned MSGed animal entrails

15. What do you like best about yourself? I can spend long bright days in my own utopia
