Thursday Thunks



It's been ages...I've been a little busy. :)

1. You walk into a store and the cashier is being held up by a robber. The robber's accomplice is dead on the floor at your feet with a shotgun laying next to him. The robber does not see you, but the cashier does - what do you do?

Oh gosh...I don't have a lot of experience with a shotgun so I'm afraid I wouldn't know what to do. Not only that, but I tend to freeze in emergency situations. Lame, I know. I would WANT to grab the shotgun and blow the robber away. If hubby was with me he'd probaby be carrying already so problem solved. :)

2. We go to an ice cream shop for an ice cream cone. You say you are buying and I am going to stay in the car. You ask me what I want and I say "surprise me", what kind of ice cream cone am I going to get?

Liver and Onion. I hate 'surprise me' answers. What if you hate it? Then again I'm always too specific and must order my own stuff.

3. You have a dream that your co-worker, friend or whoever is hit by a garbage truck after they back into a ladder with a black cat on it. The next day you see that person standing by a ladder with a black cat on it and there is a garbage truck driving down the road.... what do you do?

Watch in awe and see what happens. I seriously have had dreams that I think have come true...or at least I get that weird sense of deja vu.

4. What is the most money you've won on a lottery or scratch off ticket?

I don't remember the last time I played a ticket that I purchased myself (I've gotten them as gifts from others) and generally think they are a tax on the stupid who can't do math. Though I do remember my mom buying them for us kids...we thought they were fun games. Maybe $5 or $10 is the most I rememer winning.

5. A neighbor kid down the street comes to your door and offers to wash all of your windows outside for $10 - do you have him do it?

Probably not...it's partly a liability issue. But unless I know the kid very well I also don't trust him/her. Why waste $10? Though I admire the gumption...most kids aren't interested in working like that. But still...hubby is paranoid about having kids on our property with the dogs so we'd say, thanks but no thanks.

6. Go to Google Images. Type in the name of the last movie you saw. Post the first picture that comes up.

I can't remember the last movie I saw. Is that sad? Movie theater movie? Or on TV? Either way I don't remember. I watch a lot of TV. I do know that the next movie I see in theaters is going to be Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Hopefully this Saturday!



7. Your local animal shelter calls you and says there are 3 dogs that need an immediate foster home for 3 days. If you do not accept, the dogs are put down that day. Do you take them in?

Oh gosh...this is a gut wrencher. I want to say YES...but the reality is that we have four big dogs already and I'm very pregnant. I think that if it was for only three days...and I could be home during those three days...I'd like to say yes. I hate the idea of dogs being put down - especially if they are great adoptable dogs. But it happens every day and is part of life. With an older dog who is grouchy and with Trooper Bear who gets very jealous I'd have a hard time justifying bringing three new dogs on the property. Although we do have a nice large extra kennel where they could actually stay...tough question!

8. What is the messiest room in your home?

I can only pick one? Probably the 'office'...also known as "hubby's room". We are very behind in our filing and paper shredding...it's kind of a fire hazard. Then there's all the magazines that hubby refuses to get rid of. Second runner up is our master bedroom though. Very messy.

9. Have you ever been to a wedding that participated in a strange tradition that you had never heard of?

Yes. Until my aunt and uncle got married (I was in my 20s) I had NEVER heard of a money dance. She's from the Philipines and it's apparently traditional (though I've now since heard of it being done in all sorts of cultures). I found it extremely tacky and still do think so. My little cousin is getting married in August and talking about having one - I'm really disappointed about it but it's her wedding.

10. Name one sport that you just don't get.

Golf. Seriously. Even mini golf can be extremely boring after about 9 holes.

11. What was the last email that came into your inbox about?

I can't remember...it was junk and I deleted it.

12. Have you ever purchased anything from a sex shop? Extra points if you tell us what it was....

I'll admit it...I was 18. It was a rush and very taboo. There were a group of us. And seriously, very seriously, I cannot remember what the hell I bought. I wasn't drunk. I swear. I think it was some kinky article of clothing or something. I think such places are very sleazy though.


13. Go back to that Google Images link... type in the last food item that you ate. Post the 2nd picture it comes up with.

Yummy...chicken soft tacos.

14. Got any bumper stickers on your vehicle? What are they?
Heh. Hubby hates my car. I've got lots of bumper stickers. One is about spay/neuter for pets. Just do it! One says "Peace through Superior Firepower". One is "Keep the Change" with the One's logo crossed out. Another with a ying yang symbol with the words Bite/Bark. :) And of course my State Patrol Association stickers.

15. What meme question do you wish was never asked again?
No idea...I haven't played enough to see the same ones asked over again. =)

Never thought of it that way...paying out $10 and then have him fall and sue me...yep, liability issue indeed.

I played and thunk...come on over if you can find time to visit with me. I'd love your company. Happy Thursday. [for the Thursday thunks...scroll down a bit, okay?]

I think money dances are tacky, too.
