Sunday Stealing: 90, part 2

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's meme. (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 this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme. 
Let's go!!!

Saturday 9: Oh! My Papa

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme! 

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) Eddie Fisher starred in a popular 1950s TV show, which was sponsored by Coca Cola. Do you have a favorite soft drink? 
***I love to drink WATER

2) He was notorious for leaving his famous first wife for his very famous second wife. Can you name either of the women involved in this Hollywood scandal?
***I can't remember
3) His oldest daughter, Carrie Fisher, is best known as Princess Leia from Star Wars. Are you a sci-fi fan? 
***Not much of sci-fi fan;)

4) Since Sam's father is particular about his footwear and likes "a good pair of Cole Haan loafers," her Father's Day present to him is a DSW gift card. If we were to give you a gift card to any store or restaurant, which would you choose? 
***I would like a gift card from RED LOBSTERS!;)

5) Sam's father hates it when she swears. When is the last time your cursed? 
***I secretly cursed last week when I got so pissed but can't let them know that I am
6) Sam's father is a voracious reader. So much so that the local librarian knows him on sight and by name. How often do you visit your neighborhood library?
***I've never visited a library yet but a good friend of mine told me to visit one here in Fayette

 7) "A good used car is a better investment than a new car." That's what Sam's dad tells her when she's in the market for wheels. Share some other words of financial wisdom with us. 
***can't think of one right now

8) Every car her father has ever owned had a pro-union bumper sticker. Do you have any bumper stickers on your vehicle?  
***No, but this question here gave me an idea that I better buy one for my car.
9) To celebrate Father's Day, Sam is giving away her father's favorite candy: LifeSavers. Would you prefer a roll of Wild Cherry, Butter Rum, Winter Green or Peppermint?
***would like the PEPPERMINT.


It is undeniable that I get homesick at times. Who else doesn't feel that way when family and friends are on the other side of the world? Lucky are those who got families here. I don't say am too unfortunate coz I've got relatives and friends who live near me but the thought of being far from my immediate family and closest friends sometimes make me so sad.

Thank GOD for these distractions!
Sometimes when I feel like going out, I do go out. I love loitering in malls with a friend or at times go somewhere interesting. I also visit friends even if I had to drive many miles to reach their homes. I am just glad that everything is just accessible here for as long as you can pay for the gas and off you go.

Thank really GOD for distractions like these are made!;)

Thanks to YOU

I can't think of a person aside from my family who's got so much time to offer to teach me and boost my confidence and morale, to help me, to inspire me, to walk with me, and to simply just be there for me. You are just an amazing person who showed countless efforts to just make me feel alright, ensuring that I am okay despite the personal struggles I have in terms of adjustment and coping. You simply take my homesickness away by giving me distractions that temporarily not make me think about being far from home. 

I can't think of all the returned favors and the unsolicited help you gave me because they seem to be countless.  Remember how many times we chatted on Facebook even if we used to live miles apart from each other? It's just so surprising to note that we actually had more than 5,000 conversations while I was trying to retrieve it now. You told me your stories about your transition here while at the same time I was telling you most about pressures and stresses at work back there and the updates of my papers before coming in here. I can't forget how you would surprisingly message me wishing me good luck on my physical exam and my embassy interview and in return, I also told you details on how these events went on. When you finally knew about our flight dates in coming here, your messages made me felt like I should not be scared about transitioning here. You even added that my dream of coming here is almost closest to reality. I can remember I had concerns with my immigration fees but you helped me out without much questions and you devoted time to really figure out how. When you learned about where I'd be assigned at, you eagerly offered how you would help me look for a place to stay. Our long distance conversations went on until our flight bound in this country. I can't forget how we still exchanged conversations while we're at Narita, Seattle, and Charlotte Airports.

Now that I am here, you still and always did prove to me that I can always count on you. Seriously, you made a great influence in my life here.

For all that, many, many thank yous from the bottom of my heart!;)
Thank you for making my transition easier, for always giving me something to look forward to with my stay here in this different world far from the world that I used to.
