Thursday Thunking on Friday

Welcome to the November 19th version of Thursday Thunks!

This week we will answer some

crazy questions brought to you by

Kimber, the color of a clown fish image

and the number 10595.

1. If you won a brand new house in a Dream House Giveaway would you move into it, sell it to pay the taxes and make a profit, rent it out or give it to a family member/friend who might need it?

Live in it if it were to my tastes if it wasn’t then I would sell it.

2. Are you good at billards?

no not especially although I do like to play.

3. Does anyone on the planet really want to see Levi Johnston naked in Playgirl (other than when Bristol Palin did)?

I have no idea who that even is so uhhh nope!

4. Is your phone ringing right now?


5. Do you think man has eaten or tried to eat every type of animal on the face of the earth at one point or another? If not, what don't you think man has tried?

what man are we talking about?  this man?


6. The new movie Avatar has been showing sneak peeks and been hyped to the max. Will you see it?

Someday maybe when it comes to Netflix or cable.

7. If a slightly bigger fish eats a small fish, then a bigger fish immediately eats that one, then an even bigger fish immediately eats that fish and then finally a huge fish eats the one that just ate that fish and it gets caught by you... how many meals will you have from that one fish?

None cause I don’t fish so wouldn’t be catching the fish who ate the other fish that ate the fish before the one who ate the smaller fish who ate the tiniest fish of them all.

8. If you had an appointment with the doctor and all the plants in the office were dead, would you still see the doctor?

this is funny cause the only plants I have ever seen in the Dr. office have been fake and if they killed the fake ones then hell no I wouldn’t stay to see the Dr.

9. Have you ever seen the number 666 in a dream?

I don’t know…I don’t remember many of my dreams.

10. "At 20 years of age the will reigns, at 30 the wit, at 40 the judgment."~ Benjamin Franklin

So what happens at 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100?

at 50 I imagine the memory…hmmm what was the question?

11. Would you want your phone number to be (area code) 123-4567?

it would be easy to remember but no cause I would probably get telemarketers calling me all the time. I bet someone has that # though, hmmm let me go try to dial that…

be back later…..

Thursday Thunks

This week we will answer some
crazy questions brought to you by
Kimber, the color of sweet potato pie and the number B12.

1. Mad Cow disease, Bird Flu, Swine Flu...what barnyard animal will cause the next big outbreak of disease?

Oh wait I think that already is a disease...
Oh well I thought the cartoon was funny :)

2. Sesame Street turns 40 this month. If you were to be on Sesame Street, which character would you want to be in a scene with?

3. We are out shopping for a new laptop. Which one do you pick and why?

I actually didn't pick one, I don't have one. I do have a netbook though.
I love it but again I didn't pick it I won it...lucky me!

4. Have you ever dried a flower in a book (pressing)? If so what was the flower and the name of the book?

Yes, weed flowers LOL as a child and I believe it was called YELLOW PAGES! ROFL!

5. Do you think it's important to study other planets? If so, why or why not?

YES, how else would we learn things like: (copied from THIS website)

Pluto is a dwarf planet that usualy orbits beyond the orbit of Neptune. It was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh on Feb. 18, 1930 (Pluto was considered to be a planet from its discovery until 2006, when it was reclassified as a dwarf planet).

Pluto has one large moon, Charon, that is close in size to Pluto. Two minuscule moons were discovered in 2005.

Pluto is smaller than a lot of the other planets' moons, including our moon (Pluto may actually be an asteroid). Pluto is the only planet in our solar system that has not been visited by our spacecraft yet. We only have blurry pictures of its surface. Pluto's composition is unknown. It is probably made up of about 70% rock and 30% water (this is determined from density calculations).

Pluto is STILL a planet, they call it a dwarf planet and I think the only reason someone decided to say it wasn't is due to the fact stated above - it is the ONLY planet not visited by our spacecraft. Hmmmm did those aliens outsmart us or what?

6. Have you ever walked out of a movie at the theater? What was the movie, how much was the ticket and why did you walk out?

No I don't think I have ever walked out when I have paid for a ticket although a long time ago I worked at a theater and I have walked out cause my break was over.

7. Does the city/town you live in have traffic enforcement cameras? Have you ever gotten a citation/ticket/fine from one? If so, did you pay or fight it?

No we don't have these.

8. If your neighbor is having a baby would you buy a baby gift for them?

I might I suppose if I had some but I really don't have any neighbors.

9. How many questions are too many questions?

you'll know when you get there and I stop putting answers :)

10. Do you have a handwritten journal you write in everyday?
No I have facebook and twitter.

11. Have you already made plans for 2010?

Some yes.

12. Thursday Thunks has a huge party for all those who play along each week. Where is the party, how long does it last and does Kimber fall off the roof dropping crayons? If so, what color of crayon does she fall on?

Do we get to wear our party hats?...This the dungeon is it?...why does Kimber want to fall off the roof? there a roof, I thought we were in the dungeon?...Wait don't hurt the crayons...hey give me back my purple crayon...please can I have another drink...Wait am I at the right party?...Ahhhh nice drink...Where am I?

13. We may have "blogger celebrity" questions in the near future. Are you excited?

idk who/what is a blogger celebrity?

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Hello I found my way back!

WOW it has been almost a month since I blogged - I apologize. Seems like a lot has been going on but yet not really...time just keeps rolling on by!

So what have I been up to? Well let's see...

I've been shopping with my dd for her wedding dress, we found some things we like and some we don't and are going to actually end up having the gown made. A little of this one and some of that one and then this and that added too :) Fun Fun Fun!!! We also went to a bridal show and learned a lot of what we don't want and saw some fresh new things we would love to have included. Yeah I keep saying we but she is making the decisions I just happen to like the ones she is yeah and nay"ing".

Hmmm we went to Charlotte for the race in the middle of October and made a vacation of it, staying with my SIL. Had a wonderful time and for sure didn't want to come home even though it was unseasonable COLDDDDDD while we were there!

After we got home I found out my boss was cutting my hours at work...NOT PLEASED WITH THIS AT ALL...NOR WITH HOW IT WAS HANDLED. But since I am wanting to find employment no bashing will be going on here I surely don't want it hanging over my head. So yes I am looking for employment part or full time preferably days so I can still see my family and help my daughter with wedding planning. If anyone knows of something please message me. I would love to find something I can do from home, please only something tried and true not a scam Make Money at Home plan please.

Let's see what else...well we went to a fish fry and a monthly drawing and then the next night was Halloween and we went to a Costume party and there was a band. Then it was my birthday and my dd took me to lunch and then my dh came home and spent the evening with me just watching a show here but he stayed awake! LOL

We've also been playing darts and Wii Bowling, mostly I just bowl cause the darts hurt my fingers/hand too badly. Dang carpel tunnel :( I've also been crafting when I can and working on Guest Design things, Design Team things and my Creative Council stuff. It all keeps me busy and usually the time flies right by.

Ok so I'll be back tomorrow with the Thursday Thunks! See ya then!

Thursday Thunks

Welcome to the October 8th version of Thursday Thunks!

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by
Thursday Thunkers, the number 301 and the color ketchup red.

~This week we will answer questions from the Thunkers themselves. All questions were copied and pasted directly from the blogs. We will continue thunkers questions next week so if we haven't used your question yet... we will!~

1. Bud- What type of meme question is the hardest?
None are really hard - they just make you think sometimes LOL!

2. Smart Cent's Mom- If you could be any person living or dead, who would you be?
idk - sometimes I think it would be nice to be one person and then another - I think I would like it to be like Quantum Leap and I could try different lives out.

3. Thom- You accidentally bumb into someone at a store and you apologize. The person you bumped into says no problem and you notice food stuck in their teeth. What do you do?
I would probably say something cause if the situation were reversed I would want someone to tell me.

4. Captured Memories- "Do you ever shed a tear when you poop?"

5. Mejis- If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, it's still a tree, right?
this is one of those things that makes you go hmmmm like why so they call it a parkway when you drive on it.

6. Tosin- What is something you have said to someone that you wish you could take back?
I wish I hadn't ever said I hate you to my parents, I wish I hadn't said some things to my dh over the years, I wish I hadn't told my ex-friend I didn't have enough money for something that was important to her and had I just figured out a way to work it out there probably wouldn't be an "ex" in front of friend.
7. Annie's home- not feeling very creative here so I will ask if you were in the Big Brother house how would you play the game?
I know I am not able to do the challenges like them so I think I would have to just buddy up with everyone be the likable one in the house, not cause controversy and keep my fingers crossed each week that I make it through.

8. Meandering Matt- Mac (which is still a PC (personal computer) in my opinion) or PC (Microsoft)?
I am a PC but MAC is way hotter than PC in the commercials!

9. Living Dead Nurse- Do you think Jay Leno’s show should be cancelled?
I have never watched the show so I have no idea - wouldn't care one way or the other.

I don't know, don't think I really care either.

11. And finally one by Kimber (just so you don't think I am too lazy)- There is a rattlesnake living behind the warehouse my husband's company just moved into, tarantulas in our side yard, scorpions all around at night and coyotes howling and running down the street in front of our house. So what color sheets will you want on your bed when you come to visit me?

Clean ones :)

Funky Socks

One of my groups today asked about our socks soooo.....
I took a picture of the ones I was wearing and shared :)
Figured I'd post it here also so you can see too {grin}

Sorry it isn't cropped and all that but I am at work and took it with my phone LOL!
Live a little wear some fun! No rules say your socks have to match the outfit.

Lather Up, Laugh It Up, And Have A Colorful Day!

Welcome to the September 24th version of Thursday Thunks!

Where we make you think
a little bit before you blog!
This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Kimber,
the number 1172007 and the color of the walls in an asylum.

1. Does soap or shampoo have to really lather up for you to feel that it cleaned throughly?
You mean you aren't supposed to just lather, rinse, repeat all day long?
Or what about waiting for it to squeak isn't that the same as the "clean whistle"
2. Do you have a long standing joke with someone that you still laugh about every time you talk to that person?
I peench I peench! (they'll know)
Others to :)

3. Share something that happened to you this past week that was unusual.
I had the bed all to myself and no snoring in my ear!

4. If you dropped a purple crayon and a green crayon off a roof, which would melt faster in the sun?

Probably the green cause I couldn't find it to pick it up if it was in the grass and it would be shorter than the purple too so less to melt since I color more green things than purple things (can't you see I am using green text! Which thank you very much I picked before I got to this question!)

5. You are standing in line (grocery store, bank, etc.), and someone gets in line behind you that stinks. The stink is so bad that people in line in front of you turn around and look to see if you are the one causing the stink. Do you cover your nose, hold your breath, breathe through your mouth or just get out of line altogether?
Dude(tte) I am OUTTA there! There is nothing I can think of that i need that desperately that I can't go back for another time.

6. If you dropped your cell phone in the toilet, would you fish it out? If so, how much soap would you use to wash your hands afterwards?
Seriously? Did you hear about the girl who got wedged in the porta pot trying to fish her phone out - NO WAY I would do that! GROSSSSSSS not enugh soap or disinfectant in the world.

7. Sydney Australia dust storm (link). How long do you think it would take you to clean your house after that sort of dust storm?
One good rain for the outside :)
Hello is this Molly Maid? - about 2 minutes of my time - no idea how much of theirs :) Did I mention I do NOT like to clean any more than I absolutely have to!

8. Do you think you can dance?
Yes I can but I don't know if anyone else thinks I can but neither do I care!

9. You are out to eat and someone across the room is staring at you. Do you get paranoid, try to ignore them, or go find out why they are staring at you?
First wipe mouth, chin, check the chest for spillage, if nothing then smile at them, if they still stare go on over and say can I help you?

10. Come up with a crazy, wacky Thursday Thunk question.
Sweet or Sour pickles?

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Ouch, denim, news and that desert island question again....

Well I have missed a few weeks of thunking and today finally am finding a few moments to get back to it :) So here we go.....
This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen, the number one thousand twenty seven (1027) and the color of leaves in the fall. (My favorite time of the year all the colors!)
1. My daughter (aka Demon #1) informed me the other day that her hugs were worth a million dollars. Would you give up hugs - giving and receiving - for the rest of your life, for a million dollars?
No I don't think I could do that - hugs from my daughter, my husband too yummy :D and someday grandchildren - no I think they are worth more but I am not denying that a million $$$ would be grand too!
2.Have you ever been bitten by a member of the canine family?
Unfortunately yes as a a result am pretty darn afraid of them. Very few dogs I have been able to tolerate since then, I still freeze up and beg my dh to protect me for the most part. he is very understanding and runs interferrence for me.
3. What is your favorite color of jeans?
darker blue is what I generally choose - stonewashed but not washed out or bleached
4. What is something that has changed in public schools that you wish was the norm when you were in school?
I honestly can't think of much, I went to private school for elementary and then highschool was public but only really 2 years as the last 2 was work study so I had all of an hour or two of class LOL!
5. What is your news source?
I read my local newspaper online ( and I troll the newsites ( and for most other info. I do listen to the radio while driving that long long 9 mile drive to/from work a couple days a week and it is on as background noise during the day while I am there. I also occasionally read a newspaper mostly Sunday editions if we happen to go out and about on Sunday and pick one up. I really rather like living in my own little world LOL!
6. What sort of people do you think read your blog?
Why other thunkers of course and a few friends I also have a crafting blog and my fellow DT members read it along with other crafters round the world.
7. If I told you that I had a headache, you would say..........???
Probably lend you this new roll on thing I got the other weekend from Bath & Body Works as it has helped me get rid of them when they are just starting. I am wishing I had bought more than one actually so I could keep them in several locations.
8. You go to a buffet style restaurant, what is the first food you put on your plate?
The only buffet I have been to recently is a Chinese one and I of course went straight for the crab legs LOL! Usually if we go that or seafood based dishes are my first choices. ohhhhh like this mixed seafood and cheese dish Mmmmm ok now I am hungry for it!
9. If you were stranded on a desert island.... no, we aren't asking that again. Lets put a twist into this. Would you volunteer to be dropped off on a desert island, to be picked up in a month? And you don't get to bring those 3 items, either.
I don't get to bring what 3 items? Do I get to bring any items? Hmmmm if I could just have a book and some lotion and some....
Hell Ya I would go - PaRtY...VaCaTiOn TiMe!!!!!
10. When the sun sets, what are you usually doing?
stuff :D
Depends on the day.

Cinnamon Buns

I just thought I would let you all know that the little cinnamon treats that were in the last food pack (did you miss the info? if so you can find it here) were delicious! They tasted like little cinnamon buns! Yummy bread doughy outside with the cinnamon all warm and gooey in the middle. We had a few the other night as I was wanting something sweet :) I saved a few for the next AM and ate them cold out of the fridge. Still yummy but way better when they are warm!
Just thought I would let you all know another part of the package we are pleased with. Saving money on our food bill each month, new foods to try sometimes - we are pleased :)

bs-dog-kisses-memories-and-you-guessed it....more!

Welcome to the August 27th version of Thursday Thunks!

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by
Kimber, the number of kids I have (just one for me!) and the color of dead roses. (doesn't it just depend on what color they were to begin with?)
1. Have you ever played Bullshit?
Yeah but not recently

2. A dog licks you on your face. Are you disgusted or thinking it was sweet?
DISGUSTED - I would never voluntarily put myself in this position and I would probably be in a tizzy if a dog got this close to my face - bad experience before and I prefer not to be around them at all.
3. Tell us about a fun/special memory you have of a grandparent.
I have so many lovely memories of my grandparents. One of the things is family holidays - we all got together in their house and there was room for everyone without it feeling the least bit crowded. Depending on the holiday we did different things like 4th of July watching fireworks and doing sparklers in the backyard. Christmas was waiting for Tinkerbell and they had this angel that was suspended on a bouncy wire from the ceiling! Colored logs in the fireplace. *sigh* I miss my Grandparents!

4. Have you ever pet a rat?

5. If I walked into your kitchen, where are the cups?
in the dish drainer or the cupboard in the corner on the right.

6. Since you already let me in your home, I found the cup and had water, now where's the bathroom from the kitchen?
since you are a stanger I would probably send you next door to the bathroom LOL! Ok well if I was persuaded to let you use my bathroom it is down the hall on the left.

7. Have you ever pet a turtle or tortoise?

Stupid Questions That You Love to Answer

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen,
the number ziltch and the color of spider webs.

1. Your thoughts on hunting?
Dh is a hunter. I am not.
2. Swine Flu vaccine... will you get it?
Doubt it.
3. What is one job/profession that you think there are just too many of?
Professional Bullshitters...oh wait maybe they call them Lawyers.
4. I want to go on a diet, what advice will you offer me?
diets don't work, lifestyle changes do...if you figure out a way to stick with the changes that is fool proof please let this fool know :)
5. You are going out on a date with someone for the very first time.
When you get into their car, you see a box of condoms on the floor.
What do you do?
I wouldn't be going on a date right now as I am married...if I found condom's on his floor I would be pitching a MAJOR fit cause there is no need for them at this stage in our game so that would mean something funky going on :(
6. Name something in your bathroom that shouldn't be there.
a screw drivier my husband had taken in there for some dumb reason and has failed to put it away!
7. What was your Kindergarten teacher like?
hmmmm I don't recall a lot of Kindergarten, I had a uniform to wear to school that's about it LOL! My first grade teacher was AWESOME though and has kept in touch with my family all these years and we used to visit her during the summer...she is a very special lady.
8. What kind of oil do you use when you cook?
DUHHHHHHHHHH the kind in the bottle in the cupboard!
Or some from the big container (GFS Brand) on the top of the fridge if I am frying something.
9. If someone takes an unflattering picture of you and posts it online, do you beg them to take it down or do you laugh at yourself with everyone else?
I take you haven't seen them floating around on my dd's website already or the ones that someone posted on FB from hs and the prom - OMG we thought we looked good? LOL all a matter of perception I spose and the trends of the time!
10. What brand of dishwashing soap do you use?
Sometimes Pam handles it other times Dawn. ;)

Foods Here & the Freezer is Full Again!

I was talking to a friend about the food packages we have been getting so I thought I would share a picture with you all for a little refresher :) The place we have been using is called
Great Food For All. It is similar to Angel Food Ministries however we have found that we get a little better quality food with GFFA and as simple as it sounds I like that it comes in a sealed up box so I get to unpack it not have a bunch of stuff thrown in the bag/box we take into Angel Food for picking up. Now that doesn't mean I don't like the Angel Food I just prefer GFFA most months! We do sometimes do both but they often are for pick up the same weekend and the freezer doesn't always have room for 2 full basic boxes! You also have to compare menu's and decide what your family likes and what you will use. Silly to get a package just cause it is from one place if you don't like the items in it this month KWIM?


Both are similar in that you HAVE TO buy the Basic Box before you can get any "add-on" packages. Now in recent months I notice both have added alternatives to the traditional Basic Box, they call them Senior Packages and Empty Nesters or something similar. With the purchase of any one of these you can add on with other packages like a meat package, a veggie one and whatever other specials they have put together for the month.

So here was my August Basic Box:

The big brown bag on the bottom (upper left) was hash brown sticks - LOTS OF THEM! I repacked them into Ziploc's and wrote the cooking directions on each Ziploc. The center things are not corn dogs they are a cinnamon dessert thing and we haven't yet tried them. The upper right is a large container of soup! Ground beef, ham, chicken, a specialty roasted chicken package, green beans, corn, frozen berries pizzas and a crab puff appetizer package.

We also opted to add the meat package from August for grilling out with:

ground beef - 2 packages 2 lbs each, those round things in the middle are burgers! HUGE burgers!, some steaks, some more chicken too.

I have priced out the items in stores when we have been out and we definitely get our $$$$ worth so don't be afraid to give it a try if you have a pick up place close enough to you!

The food comes from all over not just bulk places, we have seen the Schwan's label on things, we have seen the same packages at GFS that we have received through here so it comes from a wide variety of sources.

I introduced some friends to this who order the Senior Package each month cause they like freezer meals and she says they are really good - we aren't too keen on freezer meals so I can't vouch but if you tend to like them I would venture to say they won't disappoint you!

So here are the links for the September Menus for both places...maybe we'll see you there!

September GFFA Menu

Angel Food September Menu

do a search at either place to find one close to you and go from find out how they handle the orders and get yourself saving on some good food!

I just noticed on the Angel Food Ministries that they state you can order ANY boxes there are NO required boxes any more :)

Questions About This, That & the Other Thing

Can you believe it is Thursday Thunk time again!
My answers can participate too just click {here}

1. Hypothetical question- you are in a building with famous works of art, old manuscripts of famous novels, and original sheet music from famous composers. The building is on fire and looks to be completely destroyed. Do you grab any of the famous works before fleeing, and if so what?

I would probably be ogling the manuscripts so I would grab whatever is closest to me and as many as I could carry and then run outside. Gotta be careful though older dried things burn faster!

2. In August 1969, the Manson family went on a 2 night killing spree. Do you think 40 years later they have paid for their crimes?

No I believe and eye for an eye.

3. Power Outage! What's the longest you have been without power?

Couple days, not so bad BC (before computers) now it would be difficult! LOL Can be romantic though like dh bringing home propane for the camp stove and cooking dinner together, candlelight...

4. Just bought a new tazer gun. Will you let it be tested it on you to see if it works, and how it feels to be tazered?

Hell NO but I would offer up my BIL for you to try it on :)

5. A neighbor's mail was delivered to you. In it is a magazine not wrapped in plastic. Is it ok for you to flip through it before giving it to the neighbor? Do you tell them you looked through it?

Depends on the magazine I spose if something on the cover grabbed my fancy I might look otherwise I would probably just plop it into his mailbox since it is right next to mine. If I did look I probably wouldn't say anything. If it came to the box mail I just look for our names and if something isn't I hand it right back to the clerk.

6. If I went through your purse/wallet right now, what all would I find in there?

Hand cream, kleenex, chapstick, mirror, tweezers, bandaids, library card, toothpick,Tinkerbell wallet with some change and a dollar in it and a $25 Ruby Tuesday card - anyone want to go to dinner?, my DL and Bank Card, My checkbook and keys. My cell phone is thrown in on top now too and my sunglasses since I am inside. Pretty boring LOL!

7. Have you been living under a rock?

Some days I sure think so!

8. Tell us something crazy you did this week.

huh...I am trying to think what wasn't crazy

I like to establish and maintain policies, procedures, and schedules.
I have a strong sense of right and wrong.

I believe that work comes before play.
I value home, family, status, security, and tradition.
I seek relationships that help me ensure a predictable life.

A Bunch of Stupid Questions by Kimber

Welcome to the July 30th version of Thursday Thunks!

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by
Kimber, the number 14 (we pronounce this Fauxteen LOL!) and the color of life.
(2 questions by Ber, figure out which 2.) I have no clue.

1. You are in an enclosed space with a group of friends. Elevator, auto, small room, etc.. You fart and it really stinks. Do you take credit for it or do you play along with the questioning of who did it?

are they good friends?

2. You are locked in a room sitting at a desk with just a piece of paper and a purple crayon. What do you draw?

Why the purple people eater of course!

3. Do you ever pee in the shower?

No that is what the potty is for! The radio recently had this discussion - it was quite the topic.

4. Have you bought, sold or got rid of something on Craigslist?

No I can't figure that list out.

5. You are in a convenience store. In the line in front of you is a drunk guy trying to purchase more alcohol. The cashier tells him they cannot sell it to him because he is obviously already intoxicated. He gets belligerent. The cashier is scared. What do you do?

call the cops

6. While shopping for produce, do you "sample" before you buy (i.e. grapes)?

no unless at the outdoor market where they are giving you a sample of it trying to entice you to buy. I admit I have got hooked on some fruits this way :)

7. You are walking down the street and there is a toddler sitting on a bench by themselves in front of a store - do you just keep walking?

Nooooooooo help the little one!

8. Have you looked up an old friend and/or lover online?

Yes but I am afraid to "talk" to them cause we parted on not good terms, she knows where I am too and has "talked" with my dd so I know she knows I am there too...

9. You are nearly in a car/auto accident. Do you freak out, follow the person who nearly caused it & talk to them or just keep going?

I just keep going probably muttering or yelling in my car but oh no never follow them, I sat on a jury for a road rage case and it was horrific what the person did to the other driver...oh no never chase and confront!

God's Messenger

A United States Marine was taking some college courses between assignments. He had completed 20 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist, and a member of the ACLU.

One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, GOD if you are real then I want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you exactly 15 min. The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, 'Here I am GOD, I'm still waiting.'

It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him; knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold.. The Marine went back to his se at and sat there, silently.

The other students were shocked and stunned, and sat there looking on in silence. The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked, 'What in the world is the matter with you? 'Why did you do that?' The Marine calmly replied, 'GOD was too busy today protecting America 's soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and act like an idiot. So He sent me.'

The classroom erupted in cheers

Burnt Toast, Asian Noodles and Blogoversary

Love toast especially when I can have fresh made jam on top of it. So since I have been making jam toast sounded like a great breakfast - durn toaster burnt it though :(

Asian Noodles with Peanut and Sesame - Yummmmm NOT at least not what I ended up with. Some kind of spice in them and they weren't that appetizing. I picked out the crab and zucchini I had added and ate that instead.

If it weren't for Teena in Toronto noting that today is my Blogoversary I don't think I would of remembered LOL! So thanks Teena!

Dang I hope dinner and the evening is better than the rest of the day so far!

The Worst Thursday Thunk Ever!

Thursday Thunk again...

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by
, the number 3000 and the color grape ape.

1. Are your ears dirty?

No I scrubbed them and even behind them in the shower this AM and I haven't been playing in the mud today although it has rained plenty nuff to make lots of mud!

2. Would you rather be stung by a scorpion or bit by a snake? (Don't say one wants to be in pain, that's the point. Pick one.)

I guess a snake and hopefully it wasn't poisonous or there is someone around to suck the venom out.

3. Do loud noises make you snappish? (i.e. A loud restaurant, screaming child next to you, booming stereo from a neighbor's house?)

snappish? Hmmm is that the same as annoyed? Let's put it this way I grew up with my dad saying "who picked this place?" if there was a screaming baby or loud kids. I never let my kid be loud at the restaurants or scream just for the heck of it she was removed to the car or other room or something although it didn't happen too often once was usually enough for her to learn we meant business :)

I am sometimes the stereo blaster though so good thing I don't have neighbors. he he!

4. PETA- thoughts on this org.?

well I think what one calls ethical another might not... I don't generally like political type debates and feel everyone is entitled to their own opinion after all they are like A**holes and everyone has one you know. So moving on now to the next question. ( I will be interested to see other's responses to this one)

5. Would you rather be the discoverer of the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot? (Imagination!)

Why is it imagination? Who is to say there isn't one of either of these? I think Loch Ness - imagine gliding through the water with her or maybe even hitching a ride! You never know what kind of life exists under the sea!

6. When in a public toilet and it's not flushed: do you flush & use or move on to a clean one?

I try NOT to use public toilets but if I have to I will usually only go in the cleanest one I can find, sometimes that means foot bumping more than one door! Also NEVER set my bag or purse on the floor and NEVER sit on the seat! Flush with the foot if it isn't an auto one too!

7. Neighbors are having a noisy, party bonfire, what do you do?

What neighbors? Where are the roasting sticks? Got the dogs? the marshmallows? the chairs? something to drink? Let's go!

8. Do you play Monopoly? If so which version of the game?

We don't play often and it is just the original version that we have.

9. Are you a remote hog?

no, my dh would claim that title...even when he doesn't "need" to be holding it (ie: a 2 hour dvd playing) he will hold it! I think it is his security blanket!

10. Do you like the smell of paint?

sniff sniff
but only the colored paint the white is boring!

11. My questions obviously suck this week. {I've had a bad week.}
So do you think Kimber should have...

~smoked pot before doing these questions? No not a good idea
~drank liquid courage? well that depends on the flavor of choice :)
~begged Berleen to do them (she's better at them anyhow)? naw variety is the spice of life right? Good to have questions from various sources.
~just piss off! I could have done better! well ok then!

Have fun thunking!
