Thursday Thunks for April 16th

Welcome to the April 15th (Tax Day) version of Thursday Thunks!
hmmmm that was yesterday Wednesday so wouldn't it actually be
The Day AFTER Tax Day Thunk?

The TT questions are brought to you by Berleen,the color of daisies
and the number 0.

Got your taxes done? Yep sure do and most the money I got back is gone already :(

What do batteries run on? I suppose whatever they want to especially if they are carrying a charge like this I would get out of the way!

What do chickens think we taste like? Chickens do not have taste buds, but I imagine that they think we taste like SWEET REVENGE!!! (I actually found this online at Yahoo Answers not my original thought)

What do they call a French kiss in France? Wikipedia says: The colloquial term, "French kissing", does not necessarily stem from France. In France, it is referred to as 'baiser amoureux' (love kiss) or 'baiser avec la langue' (kiss with the tongue). In French slang, a "french kiss" is called a "patin" (ice skating shoe) or a "galoche".

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and dishwashing liquid made with real
lemons? huh I didn't know that so I guess I don't know why either! LOL

How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said? usually I go huh? and they repeat then I go what did you say and they repeat and then I just shrug and move on LOL!

I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Darn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away? they're probably talking to your machine silly! wait a minute or so and listen for the voice mail beep or then try calling them back.

So Mel Gibson left his girlfriend - think he's finally heard of me? ummm nope or me either for that matter :D

Why do they call it "getting your dog fixed" if afterwards it doesn't work anymore? who knows who cares

Are you bothered that I didn't number these? nope not at all - thanks for the spaces though that helps!

Thursday Thunks for 4/7

Welcome to the April 7th
(Berleen's Daddy's 76th Birthday)
version of Thursday Thunks!

Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!

We pick a subject, and your job is to interpret it anyway you want. Write about it on your blog... simple as that. Maybe you can interpret it as a picture - we don't care!

Bud must have really wanted to do the meme this week... he emailed me before I even had a chance to remember it was Wednesday! Way to go, Bud! Love ya...
These questions were inspired by the late George Carlin. His quotes are in bold. They were gathered from his routines.

The TT questions are brought to you by:
  • Bud
  • The color KC's eyes **hey that's me KC and my eyes are BLUE!
  • The number 3.

1. Why do they ask you to get on the plane? Shouldn't you get in it? When was your last flight? I think my last flight was to Kansas City, KS via Milwaukee, WI and it was on Midwest who serves up the most delicious chocolate chip cookies!

2. Why do they call two planes getting too close a near miss? Shouldn't it be a near hit? Have you ever been on a plane that was in trouble? First flight I ever took was to go to West Palm Beach, FL via Newark, NJ and it was in winter and the turbulence was horrible not to mention the hours spent de-icing the plane before we even could take off!

3. If a mute swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap? What have you done when your child sweared? I have used a bar of soap and time outs for my dd when she was younger. Sometimes though you just gotta laugh!

4. How about a restaurant for anorexics? What would you call it? The Empty Plate? When was the last time you went out to a fancy restaurant? been awhile!

5. Where do forest rangers go to 'get away from it all'? What to you do to get away from it all? well I suppose that depends on what their "it all" is that they want to "get away from"

6. Why do people who know the least know it the loudest? What do you do to get a know-it-all to shut up? WALK AWAY! (or hang up)

7. If a man speaks in the forest and there is no woman to hear him, is he still wrong? Men: does your woman (or most recent) think that you are always wrong? Women: Do you believe that men are always wrong? Nope just most of them LOL

8. If a turtle loses his shell, is it naked or homeless? Tell us about a time when you were caught naked. I think the turtle is homeless and I feel badly for him! Nope not telling you about any nekkid adventures!

9. Would a fly that loses it wings be called a walk? How badly do flies annoy you? the flies that land on you or bite or buzz my ears are WAY ANNOYING! I like to SMASH them flat with the swatter!

10. Why do they report power outages on TV? When was the last time that you went without power? We haven't been without for a bit but the last time we just lit candles, dh drug in his laptop and portable power source we had cheese & crackers for dinner and watched a movie together...I don't mind no power :)

11. If vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat? Have you ever been or considered to be a vegetarian? NOPE

12. If the cops arrest a mime, do they tell him he has the right to remain silent? Tell us about a time when either you were arrested or came close. Nahhhh I pass :)

13. Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food? Have you ever owned a cat? I do not own any cats however my dd has 2 cats but I don't think she owns them I think they own her.

Date Night

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 20th Century Fox. All opinions are 100% mine.

Is it date night for you this weekend? How about seeing the new Date Night Movie starring Steve Carell & Tina Fey that opens on Friday, April 9th, 2010? The previews and trailers I have seen so far are hilarious! There is something for everyone so you and your date will have plenty to keep you entertained and to talk about afterward. Plus a good bout of laughter is always fun and what date night couldn't use some of that!

Here is a trailer so you can see what I am talking about:

The New York Times says:

In “Date Night,” which opens Friday, a bored suburban couple played by Steve Carell and Tina Fey go on their weekly dinner date and find themselves thrown into a night of intrigue: there’s breaking and entering, a car chase, a shootout and a showdown with an underworld boss at a strip club. Husband and wife come out of the adventure with some scratches and also with their ardor renewed.

I'd love to hear what you thought of the movie so after your date night this weekend pop back over and leave me a note!
