Thursday Thunks: I am who I am because of them

The TT questions are brought to you by Berleen, the color of the shark that nomnom'd on Osama and the number eight

*We will now be publishing updates for Thursday Thunks on Facebook via the InsanityCafe fanpage. Please "like" us there to get your TT reminder!
And please remember not to take these questions literally. I got a message last week questioning the questions. This is meant to be a fun, think about it meme... there is not supposed to be serious answers! Have fun with it for pete's sake! Whoever Pete is....

1. Name 5 famous people that you wouldn't be you without them.
Mel Gibson, of course.

Michael Landon because without him there would be no Little House on the Prairie
John Schneider because without him there would be no Dukes of Hazzard. Ok, there probably would be, but I can give him credit. He was the only blonde I ever loved. A huge part of my childhood was spent curled up on my daddy's lap on Friday nights watching that show and it was just to see that blonde boy slide across that hood.
Johnny Cash. Another huge part of my growing up.
Ted Corday he's one of the people that created Days of our Lives. Need I say more?

2. So yeah, did you hear Osama is dead? If you could take any letter out of the alphabet and have it never ever used again, which letter would it be?

Q. Because I rarely use it unless I'm talking about ducks.
3. If you were to swallow a guitar pick, would you tell anyone?
Depends on how cute the guitar player was.
4. My tummy hurts. Do you know anyone that eats strange things like toilet paper, chalk or some other off the wall thing that shouldn't be eaten?
Can't say that I have, honestly.
5. Whats your favorite kind of noodle?
Angel hair
6. So yeah, back to this Osama stuff. When someone says "the event that everyone will remember where they were when they heard the news", what event do you think of?
9/11. But there are a few things that happened where I can tell you were I was. Michael Landon's death, Johnny's death, finding out we had our first black president (although he's not really black....), Princess Di's death....
7. Someone last week mentioned that I don't have to have exactly 10 questions, so should I stop here?
I just think people should stop bitching about the questions or the number of them and play along. It only took a few weeks for people to start doing what made me stop doing Thursday Thunks in the first place.
8. Name 5 not-famous people that you wouldn't be you without them.
Taryn, Krissy, Jason and my parents.

Thurnesday Thunks high on helium

The TT questions are brought to you by Berleen, the color of red gummie bears and the number 1 because ... I don't know, because I'm not that creative today...

*We will now be publishing updates for Thursday Thunks on Facebook via the InsanityCafe fanpage. Please "like" us there to get your TT reminder!

1. Does anyone ever wonder: who would go to my funeral if i die?
- I do. I wonder how many people who I hadn't seen when I was alive for many many years will show up.....

2. Sometimes people just make you scrunch up your nose and give that "WTF?" look. Who was the last person you gave that look to?
- The cat. I couldn't understand why he thought the inside of the dogs' ear tasted so good

3. A friend recently told you that she tricked her boyfriend into getting her pregnant. You are also very close friends with him, should you say something or keep it to yourself?
- I'd probably keep my mouth shut.

4. Do you get light headed after sucking the helium from a balloon?
- I honestly have no idea

5. What is the last website you look at each day?
- probably Facebook.

6. Since this is a Thursday meme, but we post it on Wednesday, shouldn't this be called Thurnesday Thunks?
- I still can't figure out why we post it on Wednesday anyway.

7. So some school in Chicago is banning kids from eating bag lunches from home, forcing them to eat school lunches. Hey, I ain't making this crap up, seems the governement doesn't trust parents to feed their kids. Go see for yourself - Back in the day, did you eat school lunches or did you bag it?
- I don't remember ever bringing a lunch to school. I usually ate whatever the school gave and then stole food off my friends plates. I was hungry while I was growing.

8. You can say you don't watch the news until you are blue in the face, but everyone has some news story that caught their attention and they followed stories on. Murders, kidnappings, dirty politics, stupid celebrities..... whatever. Which one caught your attention (even if you didn't want it to)?
- lately it's been the Teen Mom 2 crew. I wanna know whats going on with Leah's one daughter.

9. What condiment is always in your fridge?
- if cheese were a condiment, I'd say that, but it's not so I'll go with mustard. Not that anyone really uses it, but it's always there.

10. You can hug it, pet it and squeeze it and if you really want to you can name it George. What mythical creature would you have as a pet?
- Bigfoot. Just so I could hide him and giggle when people say he doesn't exist.

9. If you were a cat, what already-made flavor of cat food (no chocolate flavors!) would you want to eat?
The trukey gravy always sounded good to me.

*I would think the audience would be the people sitting up in the space station...

5. If you could pick the last year of your life, which would you pick and why?
2097. Because I always said I wanted to live to be 125.

Of course!

Any. I like grapes.

Depends if they are carrying a butcher knife or not.

Locking the Dead In

The TT questions are brought to you by Berleen, the color of falling snow and the number four thousand eight hundred seventy three..

*We will now be publishing updates for Thur
sday Thunks on Facebook via the InsanityCafe fanpage. Please "like" us there to get your TT reminder!

1. Would you try a dog food flavored jelly bean? What about skunk spray or vomit flavored?
Ok I'll be different... I wanna try them. I"d rather try one than a bug anyway.

2. Are any keys on your keyboard worn off?
Not yet

3. Why are the lids on coffins nail/locked/sealed? Are we afraid they are going to get out?
I think they are because the living are
afraid. Afraid of what, I don't know. Even if it wasn't nailed down, do you think they can actually push it open with 6 feet of ground on top of the lid?

4. True love. Define it.
The butterfly feeling when you think of it.

5. Where is the strangest place you are ever fallen asleep?
In a car... because for some reason cars put me to sleep instantly. Well, at least riding in them. I have never fallen asleep driving.

6. A doctor walks up to you and says "I will change anything you want... big or small... doesn't matter how much it costs, I'll do it for free!". What do you have him fix or change on your body?
Get rid of the moles on my back!

7. The last picture you took - share it. Well, if it's not something we would probably find in Bud's recent photos.
Took a pic of the hubby because I shaved his head/face. It's spring, afterall.

8. Blue or black ink. Your preference?
Blue. It's pretty.

9. You are walking down the sidewalk on a city street and you see a little girl, about 3 or 4 years old, she asks you if you can tie her shoe for her. What do you do?
This question actually came from a real life situation. My niece was 3 years old and wandered away from her house and started walking to her daycare (which was about 2 miles away). She walked down Main Street and passed a bar and asked one of the people on the sidewalk to tie her shoe for her. Once she was found and she told us that someone helped her tie her shoe we all wondered why whoever did that didn't question and do something about the fact that a 3 year old was walking down the street alone!

10. What channel numbers are ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX for you?
ABC - 5, NBC - 11, CBS - 4, FOX - 9

11. Did/do you have any marriage deal breakers?
Hit me, you're gone. No strike 2 or 3. You lay an angry hand on me and I walk.

Have a great day. Or not. See you next Thursday.

FREE: one cute cat.

FREE: one cute cat. Has asthma, chronic respiratory problems, constantly has a snotty nose and will sneeze the boogers all over walls and you and sometimes in your food. In the middle of the sneeze will fart and you will be forced to leave the room.
Constant energy, gets into everything and is afraid of nothing. Will help you clean the house by jumping on brooms, vacuums and rags as you are using them. Will knock toasters off the counter, forcing you to clean the breadcrumbs out, which once you realize how many breadcrumbs were hidden you might thank him for saving your house from an unnecessary fire. You CANNOT have glass items or any other breakable items anywhere in your home unless they are bolted to the ceiling, but even then it might be iffy.
Loves to be in the garage and will help you lose nuts, bolts and even small tools. Will sit on your shoulder while wrenching on things whether you want him to or not.
Terrorizes other cats and dogs well, whether they want him to or not. But in a matter of seconds will turn and cuddle with them and keep them clean.
Talks to you, well more like talks back. Doesn't take no for an answer.
Within a week you will regret taking him and will find yourself putting your own "Free Cat" ad out. You might even pay for someone to take him.

You might remember Bastian, I blogged about him a year ago. OMG It's been a year. This cute little 2.3 lb cat that we felt the need to save has turned into an 8lb TERROR! He is constantly known as "YOUR cat" when the husband is around. The husband is blamed for brining him home. But the stupid cat has a home forever here. There's no way anyone could pry him from our lives. Stupid cat.
