What About You? (Sunday Quick Questions #27)

We answer ‘quick questions’ here on I Tripped Over a Stone on Sundays.

Why? 

Because… I blog. I get sick of me. I want to hear from you!

Don’t think, just answer!

  1. You are invited to a baby shower, the host asks you to bring your favorite book for the baby, what book do you bring and why?
  2. It is 11:30 PM. You want a bedtime snack. What do you decide to eat?
  3. You finally get an hour to sit down and watch a TV program… what show do you watch?

  1. The Snowy Day. This book makes snow feel magical, and children should hang on to that feeling for as long as possible. Magic!
  2. A cheese and cracker combo.
  3. Probably – Blue Bloods. (Each episode stands alone so you can watch and not be lost because you didn’t see the previous episode.)

  1. 1. Mr. Happy
    2.Chocolate Cake!
    3. We’ve watched a few great dramas lately and I love a good series, costume drama or modern that is about living people not murdered ones. But as I can make this up I am going to have a fantasy – the new sunday evening BBC drama serial adapted from my Brief Encounters Trilogy!

  2. I enjoy these Sunday lunchtime questions.
    1. That’s difficult. First because I can’t picture a baby shower. I’ve never heard of them. I always thought baby’s had a bath rather than a shower, but I don’t know that much about them so I could have got this so wrong. Then I don’t think I’d be welcomed back because my favourite book is a weird story by Dan Simmons called Hyperion Cantos. I don’t think a baby would like that one.
    2. Mentos.
    3. This probably sounds stupid and you might not believe me but apart from the gym I spend most days – 8-10 hours – sat down playing guitar or piano or playing around with electronic stuff on the Mac so come later in the night I tend to avoid sitting down, so I stand up watching news channels like France 24 or Euronews eating my Mentos.

    1. You are right! Babies have baths, not showers! (A baby shower ☔️ is a party one throws for an expectant mother to help her prepare for the birth of her baby by “showering” her with gifts she’ll need once the baby arrives.) The beautiful thing about reading to a baby is really not the actual book but the tone of your voice… I bet your sci-fi book would be a great gift! 😉 Mentos! I do love those chewy little treats… I’m going to try standing while I watch World News after I buy myself some Mentos too! George, I look forward to your answers every Sunday so I’m glad you enjoy these Sunday questions! 😊💫

      1. Thanks for putting up with me. What I enjoy most about your Sunday questions is that – unlike being back in school – I can answer the question as I hear/read it without getting marked down. As a ‘recovering’ dyslexic – if there is such a person – your questions are a source of fun, and you don’t mark me down, so thank you ~ George

        1. Awe! Thank you. I am so happy to hear that! George, the beauty of you is your self awareness while still giving it your best shot! I love that. Never lose your courage. You are just plain fun! You are a delightful gift. I love hearing your ideas about the silly questions I come up with. Don’t even get me started on your music… you are fantastically talented! 🎶🎵🎶😊💫

  3. Easy!
    1. The wonky donkey; it’s hilarious mainly for the reAder, tho. Little grandson, Wilder, loves “The Little Blue Truck” followed with me singing Little Boy Blue-heaven for me.
    2. Late night snack is usuAlly nuts or popcorn. Single gal here; don’t usually have cake or pie extras.
    3. Unfortunately, I watch tv sa lot when I come home from work. Recently I binged on 1000 (?) episodes of Syet and Sura- Turkish love story of course with subtitles. It is so beautiful!!

    1. Sometimes it’s all about the reader! That book sounds fun! Oh, little grandson… love the book and singing time. (Wilder is a really neat name, like that a lot.) popcorn! Yep. I recently found Wasabi-soy sauce almonds… to die for! Sherry, a subtitled Turkish love story sounds like an incredible watch! I think watching TV WITH subtitles is a brilliant idea! I’ve done this with TV movies because I end up in front of the TV more than I’d like as well, at least subtitles stimulate the brain. I’m totally going to copy you and find a series that I can watch WITH subtitles! Very cool, thanks Sherry! Yay!!! 😊💫

    1. Love the ‘beautiful’ collection of fairy tales… my sister in law bought me a book of fairy tales from Harrod’s when she was in London. I 💜 it. Big juicy apple fix, yep! The crime shows are a great way to ‘kill’ an hour!😉 Thanks, Bo! 😊💜

  4. 1. Good Night, Moon! I read it to both of my kids every night when they were little. Had it memorized. It just has such special memories.
    2. Honestly, I would have a glass of water. I don’t eat that late at night ever.
    3. Depends what is taking up space on my DVR or I am binge-watching on Netflix. Lately it’s Big Bang Theory (I’m recording episodes and watching from the beginning). And if nothing else, Friends never disappoints!

    1. Hello Viola! I love hearing that about the book, Frederick! What a terrific message. Snacking and chocolate go hand in hand. Yes, documentaries! Always enjoy them, too. Well, you and I could snack on chocolate and take in a documentary! Wouldn’t that be nice? I’d love it! 😊💫

  5. The Puff Puff Fish. Just read it to my niece last summer and it’s become my new favorite! It’s about a fish that always thought he was sad but then realized his puffy kisses made others happy. So beautifully written and illustrated, and she loved it – all the more fun!
    Snacking late usually involves TruMoo 1% Chocolate Milk because it fills me up or if really ravenous, a bowl of Frosted Flakes might do the trick.
    As for late night tv, if I can catch James Cobare (sp?) I love to laugh, or I’ll pull something off DVR that’s mellow, currently get a kick out of that 90 Day Fiancé and the cultural differences are interesting to me. Just found Blue Bloods believe it or not, and love that show!

    1. I discovered Puff Fish when my sister had her kids… such a cute book. Great message, yes! Chocolate milk??? Why have I not discovered this TruMoo… sounds like yum! Blue Bloods and I welcome you! 😉 I agree, that 90 day fiancé is so interesting! Sad that they pick such train wrecks at times but I binge those seasons! Addicting! Thanks Tamara! 😊💜💫

      1. Peaky Blinders is on Netflix. It’s a British Gangster show. I didn’t like it for like three tries, then got addicted! As for baby books, I have been holding onto my kids favorites all these years. My youngest is 20. Someday, we’ll read the same ones to Grandbabies!! Thanks Kim, too fun!!! 😘

  9. 1. The monster at the end of this Book…all time favorite and something I make sure every child I know owns and has heard me read THE RIGHT WAY. I’m 46 years old and I can’t remember what I ate for dinner yesterday, but I am confident I will never forget the animation my father used to turn the pages while reading that story to us.
    2. Probably the other half of the carton I ice cream I ate earlier that day….smh
    3. I can not SIT and watch TV. I usually lay down while watching and make it through maybe 30 mins before falling asleep. (this may explain why I can watch one series over and over again huh?) Game of Thrones, Charmed, Friends, House, currently Burn notice…yay DVR!!!!

    1. What a wonderful memory! No one will ever take that from you. 💝 I will expect it to be read to me when we meet… I pride myself on being the auntie that reads stories, I better know how to do this one right! I love Grover. I think a carton of ice cream is two servings??? Yes. I’m very sure of this…🙄 well, I have found my partner in crime! My husband gets so frustrated with me… I watch shows over and over, I always notice something new! I think it’s due to extreme intelligence. I don’t know why I think that but it’s probably fact based on YouTube somewhere…!!!😂🤣😂

  10. Kim, Oh my Gosh! So many books to choose from. I don’t know if I could find it, but my parents bought encyclopedias when we were little and my favorite book was the one that had all of the nursery rhymes and songs for children in it. Since I probably wouldn’t buy a full set of encyclopedias, I’d probably buy a big book of nursery rhymes! I’m sure I could find something interesting at B&N. *With a knick knack, paddy wack, give a dog a bone,.this old man came rolling home!* 2) If I were hungry, a bowl of corn flakes. 3) I like to record Ancient Aliens and watch them when I find spare time. Late at night when I’m all alone, that’s what I usually watch. This was a fun question and answer session today!

    1. Mona! We had that nursery rhyme encyclopedia set!!! I had forgotten that! Crazy. Yes, that was wild it came with the encyclopedias! Thanks for the fun memory! I know, it is hard to choose. The last two baby showers I’ve attended was bring a baby book instead of a card… Really? Been tough! But I took on the challenge! 😆 a book of nursery rhymes is a great book to gift! Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water… 😉 Corn Flakes. That’s a satisfying bowl of yum! Love cornflakes. The Hubby and I watch ancient aliens all day long on snowy Sundays here in the midwest. That show is so good! I’m so glad you enjoyed the questions! I put a lil spin on them today and believe I may continue. Thanks, Mona! So enjoyed reading your answers!😊💜

  11. 1. The last baby shower I was invited too LITERALLY had a book theme and I was so excited to order Joanna Gaines new children’s book, “We are the Gardeners” to give as a present (been wanting to get my hands on that book anyway, haha). I love gardening and the great outdoors and children’s picture books are the best kind of books.
    2. Lately my bedtime snack matches my current eating plan, which is low oxalate, low histamine, low sugar…lower carb and higher fat, LOL. So for a ‘treat’ in the evenings I put about 1/4 – 1/2 cup of heavy cream over ice with a tiny bit of caramel sauce on it. So good. In a long stemmed wine glass; of course.
    3. Definitely a documentary or a Netflix series episode, depends on which one I’m into at the moment and whether or not my husband is watching with me (we like different things). Working my way through The Family on Netflix, with husband, and also checking out ‘Diagnosis’ on Netflix (saving that one for when I’m home alone and bored as it would bore him!)

    p.s. I Love the book ‘A snowy day’ and I dearly miss cheese (too high in histamine for me right now– ugh)!!

    1. I’d love to attend a book party themed baby shower! I did not know Joanna Gains wrote a children’s book! How cool. There is nothing she can’t do.😊 excellent gift. Oohhh… what a lovely snack. The long stemmed wine glass, an absolute must! I think it’s wonderful you’ve found a “diet” that enriches YOUR life and makes you feel better. I’m all for it. Hmmm… I see you, too, have the hubby programs and your own for ‘later.’ That’s works like a dream! The Family and Diagnosis. I will be checking out both once I get Netflix hooked up again! Thanks so much! You’ve made my Monday! I’ll eat an extra piece of cheese in your honor while reading the Snowy Day! 😊💜💫

      1. I’ve been to a few book-themed baby showers, they are always super fun!! Joanna’s children’s book is beautiful and actually it has a good message to it, I enjoyed reading it! And please do eat ALL the cheese you can, LOL. I will get back into it after pollen season passes. One good thing about winter is the pollen dies! Having ‘your own TV shows’ plus ‘together shows’ keeps married life so much happier ❤️🤣

  12. Hi Kim! Love the Sunday Quick Questions!!
    1. This happened. I hunted down a set of books I had as a child that I adored. The Wonderful World of Walt Disney.I think it was not the hit that I envisioned, however, lol. I had forgotten some of the stories in the books are not really appropriate anymore and a recent visit to this child’s bedroom, who is now four, may have confirmed that. She has a full library on her shelves but my set is nowhere to be found. Oh well, lol. My heart was in the right place.
    2. I would want potato chips. But I would try to refrain.
    3. My Guy and I binge watch way too much TV. Very into British detective shows. Currently it’s Aurther and George with Martin Clunes. But I’m with Stacey. I think we’ve cleaned out Netflix, lol!

    1. I believe your heart was definitely in the right place! The four year old is missing out. Sad. Funny, I just can’t imagine Disney being inappropriate but it is a very touchy world! Salty potato chips. I would refrain too… then I wouldn’t, then I’d blame the commercial about “you can’t eat just one.” That’s my M.O. Binging Netflix is never wrong! Jayne… tsk, tsk girlfriend. Now let’s talk more British detective shows! 😂🤣😂 Thanks Jayne! Fun answers!😊💜💫

  13. 1. The dictionary. The baby needs to learn correct spelling, let’s start him/her off the right way!
    2. Chocolate. Or maybe dry cereal, like sugary cornflakes without any milk. It’s my popcorn alternative. Sounds weird but I love it.
    3. The Office, the American version. Started it on Amazon Prime a couple of weeks ago and on the first episode I thought it would be rubbish, but now, half way through season 5, I can officially say I’m hooked. Will have to check out Blue Bloods, don’t think I’ve ever seen it!x

    1. I love the dictionary idea! Have you seen the one with pictures/illustrations?! Yes, there IS an Oxford Dictionary that has a few pics. I get you on the dry cereal! I love frosted shredded wheat without milk… the little square ones. It IS like a popcorn alternative! The Office… I tried Caz! You have that slap stick humor! I wish I did. I’m suppose to try the Big Bang Theory but MASH is more my style. BLUE BLOODS is about as close to a realistic cop show as you can find in a drama with a family spin. It’s right up there with the Law and Order franchise. I think, anyway! 😂🤣🤣 cool! Thanks Caz!😊💜

  14. 1. Like a children’s book or an adultish book? I’d bring “Ender’s Game,” probably because everyone I ever handed it to over the last 30 years has loved it. Or maybe “The Life and Death of Captain Marvel.” Kids love comics!

    2. Is beer a bedtime snack?

    3. Right now the missus and I are re-watching Boston Legal and we just love the William Shatner/James Spader interplay. We just finished re-watching the entire 7 seasons of The West Wing, the greatest show of all time. BUT! If I had an hour right now to watch anything it would be the first episode of Deadwood. When I first saw the first episode of that show I watched it again twice more just because I was afraid the next episode couldn’t possibly do it justice. 🙂

    4 (bonus!). And if I had TWO hours to sit down I’d watch “Get Shorty.” I always watch “Get Shorty” when I have a free two hours…

    1. I think it’s very kind to bring a book an adult can enjoy while reading to their baby… I read my nieces and nephews everything… it’s about the tone not the content for the kiddos, right? Well… use good judgement, age is a factor! 😂🤣😂 Beer, YASSS!!! Counts! When you get to the third beer at snack time that is called late night happy hour! The night takes a different turn at that point! Ooh you and Mrs C have great taste in the TV programs! I like those shows! I’ll be real honest, I didn’t like… Get Shorty… gulp. I gotta be upfront! But when I attempted to watch it I was on a work trip… work trip from hell! I was not in the best headspace so do I try again??? Hmmm… thanks Tom! Another stellar Q&A!💫

  15. Depending on whether a boy or a girl
    — if girl: Anne of Greene Gables in one hand/The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in the other. In this world – child needs a rounded out education. Both for later of course.
    Boy: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea – Jules Verne; for later.

    Paint — or maybe the second thing my hand touches when it reaches into the cupboard; possibly crackers.

    3:10 to Yuma – later version; then Seraphin Falls; then The Way Back; then North Fac .. e .. when i might finally . … .. z . z . Zz.z . zz. . .

        1. Thanks Kate! I appreciate that. With a handle like ‘bootstrap’ I’d expect nothing less! I admit I like the new book choices for a baby shower! (Although, Many would benefit from a little bit of time with the books you previously mentioned!) Why have I never thought of Aesop’s Fables? That would be a terrific gift! Wizard of Oz… very nice. Thanks for checking back in. You have a great Friday! 😊💫
