The Mommy Time Questions

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog
authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's questions in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post.


We found this gem from a site called MommyeTime. It's not clear if she wrote or stole the questions. From the site's set up, it appears the blogs purpose was to help raise children and saving (or better phrased as "helping") your marriage. The picture here is from the blog, but we're pretty sure it's not the author. And to add to our confusion of not finding a picture of the site's writer(s), we couldn't even find a name. 
 


And now Stealing!
 

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Unlike most sites, including Kwiz for the three years she was the featured host, we don't plan ahead. But this week and next week we had to do it. It's WTIT's 50th Anniversary party!



Who's coming? (Feel free to skip this)

 
We've chipped in to buy a plane ticket so Johnnie Walker can attend. He moved to Colorado in 2015 after we threw him a special WTIT send-off show and party. He's staying a week. He arrived last night. Johnnie lives on Social Security disability so money is tight. If it weren't for him WTIT would have died long ago. But he has been the Ed McMann to my Johnny Carson. 


Our current DJs:

Rock Rolling is the other guy who kept this all going along with Johnnie. Although Rock joined us during our 20th Anniversary year, he has been to almost evey session since joining WTIT. He is amazingly funny, can sing and play guitar. At one time Rock & I came close to getting a morning radio show in 1990. The long and short of it was I got hired but Rock didn't. And yet it diod not effect our relationship at all.
 
Bouncing Billy recorded WTIT's first show with me. He recorded from 1967 to 1974. When we launched our reboot in 1985 he returned to help the new guy (Cos) assimilate to WTIT. When he didn't come back we thought we's never see him again. But he returned in 2013 after I asked him out for drinks. He hasn't missed a session since then.


Gregarious Greg
replaced Gypsy Grillo in 1974. He was the first replacement DJ. He recorded from 1974-1982. But he has returned for every anniversary party a decade apart. When Johnnie Walker left for Colorado, Greg agreed to return and take his chair. (He couldn't replace Johnnie for all the reason I've already stated.)


The Midnight Plowboy
is Rock's younger brother who recorded with us occasionally from 1988 to 1991 when he became a full time guy. He is truly the funniest and most talented at what we do by a lot. He left in 1995. Johnnie Walker asked him to come to my "Stag Party" (which was just a recordind session) and he did. He came to most sessions until 2016 when we didn't see us that year. At our first session of this year he stated that he was back.
 

Also coming back: 

Galloping Gary who was my best friend and co-founder along with Bouncing Billy and me. He went to college in D.C. and never returned. He did come back to visit family and always recorded, so we considered him still with us. We list his official years as 1967-1982. He and I stayed in touch. He attended all three of my weddings and was the only non-relative besides Johnnie Walker to do that. In 2014 he saw on our page when our July recording date was and drove from D.C. to Connectricut. I couldn't believe my eyes when he showed up at my door. He simply said, "We're recording tonight, right?"


The Cosmic Commando who we met while playing poker in 1981. He was a sales guy for Canon Cameras. He was the first to join when Johnnie & I rebooted WTIT in 1985. Since Billy returned for just that first night, we always considered Cos taking Billy's place. He recorded with us from 1985 to 1990. He returned for our 30th Anniversary Show in 1997. We still had Gary & Greg's chair to fill. And we did with Bob Smirnoff & B.B. Bacardi. Both of them lost touch with us.


Captain Morgan replaced Cos in 1990. We have not heard from him since 1995. He became WTIT's Weatherman as was Cos. While they have met before, this will be the first time in a recording session.

The Sassiest Questions

Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post.


We found this gem from two bloggers.  The first five questions are stolen from blogger Emily Rosenbaum at Wheels on a Bus. She explains she grabbed it from Lola's blog, and since Lola "is the sassiest of mamas" so we took that name from Emily's questions. The final five questions were ripped from Midlife Mama from the blog Midlife Musings. She stole it from her "dear friend" over at Midlife Slices where it was originally written. We do hope that you had a great week. If anyone has some questions that they'd like us to use please email Bud at bud.weiser@wtit.net. Please "like" us on Facebook!

Woozie admits he stole this meme, but doesn't say from where. But, it was probably stolen at that blog as well. But that is as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time.

We found this gem  from a blog named A Striped Armchair. Eva is the name of its author, who started it at the age of 20 in 2007. She has stated that she started the blog to explore and write about her love of books. She shared, “My perfect afternoon is spent in my armchair with a fat book, my rescue mutt Thistle curled up in my lap, and huge mug of tea nearby.” Like so many other blogs and authors, Eva’s posts stopped in September of 2015. We’ve discussed this about of blogs in general, and because of other social media and the like, we are not surprised Eva's days on her blog ended

We have published today's post a bit late for us (most blogs of this type publish the day before its stated day. Our delay may also be because we are selling our home. We have already had a of of showings. With my ongoing disability and facing the reality that at my age of 65, let's face the fact that my peak career earning years are behind me so it's the perfect time to downsize. We have four bedrooms (although the "bedroom" off our den is the currently the WTIT Studio) with three full baths in a nine-room home. For two people at this stage of our lives, it is a bit much to maintain both from a physical standpoint and perhaps more importantly considering all things financial. Back to today's post: Eva was tagged for these questions by her friend Emily. And that is as far as we will go. We hope you will enjoy today’s post!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

My-New-Favorite-Author Questions

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog

Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”.

Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post.

We found this gem our usual way. We scoured the Internet. We found a blog named after its author (or should I just say author) K.M. Weiland who writes fantasy and has won numerous awards. Because it was only 10 questions, we added 10 more that we stole from our archives. I am sure that when our new favorite author sees that we added to her questions masterpiece, she will be thrilled. I suppose it would like if I were her publisher and I decided that a book of K.M.'s needed another chapter so I wrote it myself. 

But hey, we've done worse. You don't going around stealing other peoples shit without an occasional hiccup. One time I got this nasty email from a previous victim that ranted that I should not have added her picture because The Internet, according to her, was a crazy place. The picture was on her blog. Why it was safer place on her blog than this one will remain one of this decade's big mysteries. Since Stealing had already publisher I had to change the pic. I put in a picture of a jackass. She wrote me back saying that once she understood the purpose of this blog, I could use her picture. She also volunteered to be a "guest author" of a post. At the time I just laughed. I mean, do you really think I had "guest hosts" for a freaking questions blog? When we did get tired of all things blog, we found another author, which for over three years was Kwizgiver. But she wasn't a "guest host", she was the host. Since we didn't talk much about my new favorite author K.M., I suggest you buy a book. Click here to see her novels available from Amazon.
