Thursday Thunk - by the Thunkers themselves!

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by THE THURSDAY THUNKERS, the color brown and the number 1.

Remember last weeks last question? Well... every question submitted is this week's Thursday Thunk!!

1. What is your favorite type of soda (if you drink soda)?
My newest find is Cherry Dr Pepper... I guess I can forgive them for the stopping of the Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper production.
2. Do you believe in astrology? If so, what does your sign say about you?

Sagittarius in a Nutshell:

Sagittarius seem to be guided by luck, good things happen to Sagittarius and this is usually because of their optimistic outlook and positive disposition which attracts good fortune. Despite hardships, Sagittarius is always optimistic that good things will happen tomorrow and the future carries good luck. Sagittarius have a vibrant, expansive personality that is free like a bird, Sagittarius cannot be contained. They are full of curiosity and they always look forward to the future, never dwelling on the past. Sagittarius are detached from emotions because emotions hold a person back, they do not like to talk about their feelings, they simply experience them and move on. Sagittarius can be reckless and irresponsible because they will jump at a suggestion of something new before they weigh the advantages and disadvantages.
Is it me? Yeah, kinda.

Saturday 9: Crank Up the Tunes

Saturday 9: Crank Up the Tunes
1. What is your favorite 50’s band?
Well, I'm gonna have to go with Johnny Cash because he started in the 50's!

2. What is your favorite 60’s band?
Again, I'll go with Johnny. Sorry people - I wasn't around until the 70s!

3. What is your favorite 60’s record album?
I suppose Johnny's Folsom Prison

4. What is your favorite 70’s band?
Kiss. No questions there.

5. What is your favorite 70’s record album?
Kiss - Destroyer. It has the song "Beth" on it, afterall.

6. What is your favorite 80’s band?
I fell in love with Poison in the 80s.

7. What is your favorite 80’s record album?
Poison's Look What the Cat Dragged In, of course!

8. What is your favorite 90’s band?
In the 90s I went back to my country roots (although I never really left them, I just loved country secretly because it wasn't cool, ya know). I love all country, so I don't really have a favorite - except Johnny, of course.

9. What is your favorite 90’s record album?
I'm going with Pirates of the Mississippi. There was really only one hit in that album - Feed Jake. The husband & I listened to that song so many times in the old truck he had when we were in high school. I love that song. It always brings a tear to my eye.

I'm standing at the crossroads in life, and I don't know where to go.
You know you've got my heart babe, but my music's got my soul.
Let me play it one more time, I'll tell the truth and make it rhyme,
And hope they understand me.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I die before I wake, feed Jake, he's been a good dog,
My best friend right through it all, if I die before I wake,
Feed Jake

Now Broadway's like a sewer, bums and hookers everywhere.
Whino's passed out on the side walk, doesn't anybody care.
Some say he's worthless, just let him be.
But I for one would have to disagree.
And so would their mama.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I die before I wake, feed Jake, he's been a good dog,
My best friend right through it all, if I die before I wake,
Feed Jake

If you get an ear pierced, some will call you gay.
But if you drive a pick-up, they'll say 'No, he must be straight.'
What we are and what we ain't, what we can and what we can't,
Does it really matter?

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I die before I wake, feed Jake, he's been a good dog,
My best friend right through it all, if I die before I wake,
Feed Jake

He was the big boss man who everyone hated, was afraid of, but wouldn't work for anyone else but him. My stepmom was the desk/do it all kinda person for the same company... they were on the road all the time going from job site to job site.

Random Thunks for Thursday

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen, the color carnation pink and the number 54321.

1. The last flight of stairs you walked up/down - were the carpeted? No, but they should be. Or I should finish painting them. Or something.

2. Green or purple grapes? Depends on my mood.

3. Do you like Peeps? No. I can't stand the things. I can't understand why they are so popular!

4. The smell of Vicks - like it? I LOVE it! I have Puffs w/ Vicks right now and I just sit and wait for my nose to just get a hint of running so I can grab a tissue!

5. Do you put decorative cling-ons on your windows for different holidays? I'm a cling-on addict. I'll admit it.

6. Finish the sentence - I spent too much money on camera accessories.

7. Which celebrity should be flown into outer space or placed on a desert island? Michael Jackson...

8. Would you support schools changing the "open" time? Such as 10am - 5pm, for example? Not 10-5, but I would support a 9-4. Most kids don't get enough sleep as it is and their brains just don't function that early. I feel bad for kids with a math class right away in the morning.

9. Do you go fishing? Yes. I love to fish. Once the weather warms up, the demons & I will be at the lake almost daily fishing.

10. What question should we ask next week? If you see a feather on the ground, do you pick it up?

Bad news & fan stalking

The bad news first. This is our Big Boy. This was back in January. He had that thing on his eye removed but within a month it was back and it was bleeding. We are now at the beginning of the end. I noticed last night that he now has a hole in the middle of the growth and it still bleeds. I brought him into the vet today and there's basically nothing we can do. If we do the surgery again there is a chance we will disfigure him... actually he WILL be disfigured. And also, there is a chance she will cut into the nasal passage and/or the tear duct. She gave us the option to call another vet to maybe look into laser surgery for him, but the above chances are still there and the cost is astronomical (her words). Also, at the rate it is growing and since we don't know where it's growing from (or what it is), it will probably come back.

I got home, in tears, and told Jason. He said we are just going to let him continue on the way he is now until the end. If it gets too bad, we'll put him down. The bad thing is, we've got the old Big Boy back. The Big Boy who is out & about, playing, eating and sleeping with us. He no longer sleeps in the closet. That is why we won't put him down now. He seems happy right now. But time will tell....

I've got antibiotics for him now just to stop any infections he might have. He did lose another ounce of weight even though he is eating a lot more.

So thats my bad news. We've had him for 10 years... since he was almost a year old. It's always hard to say goodbye to a pet. I'm jumping the gun here, we don't know when the goodbye will happen.. but it's only a matter of time.

Anyway. I went and joined a bunch of fan sites on Facebook. Did you know that Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher actually update their own pages? And they twitter? How fun is that? Ashton has a bunch of webcam videos... it's halarious.

I also found Alison Sweeny's fan page... and her Twitter page. Another actress that updates her own pages. I love that!

I've been really getting back into the whole Twitter thing. It's really become an addiction. Especially now since I can Twitter and Facebook & Skype pick up the status. So who out there in blogland Twitters? God I love that word. I twitter. Sounds kinky. Anyway... if you twitter and want to twitter with me....

Saturday 9: School Daze

Saturday 9: School Daze
1. Do you have children in school?
Both demons are in school. Demon #1 is in 8th grade, #2 in 7th.
2. Did you go to public school? If you have children did/do they?
Yes I did... and yes they do. Same school, too, how fun is that? And they even walk the same road I did to get there.
3. Are you currently in school or taking classes?
Nope, but I wouldn't mind doing it. I'd love to take some art classes or criminal psychology classes or veterinarian medicine classes... oh never mind. I'll never decide what I want to do when I grow up.
4. What level of education have you completed?
Technical College/VoTech
5. Do you, or did you have loans out for your (or your children's) education?
Nope. My parents paid for it. And, yes, I am kicking myself in the ass for only going to a "technically not a college" school. I could have taken art classes, criminal psychology classes, veterinarian medicine classes... as long as I was in school my parents were willing to pay. Boy was I a dumbass. But I hated school and the only thing I wanted out of it was me.
6. What are your thoughts on the cost of tuition for colleges and universities?
I think it's pretty outrageous, but then again I really don't know whats all involved in running a college so maybe it's worth the money, who knows.
7. Did school prepare you education wise for working in the real world?
No. It filled my head with tons of crap that I haven't used since I turned in the last piece of homework. I never once have had to find "x" in a triangle since then.
8. Did school prepare you emotionally for what lay ahead?
Yeah right... any teen who thinks their life is an emotional rollercoaster now should just wait... adulthood is worse. And the high school games never end....
9. If you were to run a high school, what changes would you make?
I'd give the kids more of a choice of what classes to take.... sure, take the math, English, all that happy crap, but give them more choices to explore their interests earlier. I'd also make class sizes smaller. I don't know how I'd do it, but I'd make it so less emphasis was put on the letter grade that you receive and more on what you've actually learned and taken in.

Who took the wieght off my head?

My bestest friend got her hair cut the other day and while she is describing it to me my jealousy is climbing. See, her & I have the same type of hair. Thick as shit. Yes, shit is thick. She's telling me how they thinned her hair out and how wonderful it is... blah blah blah. So I had to get my haircut. It looks basically the same, just a lot thinner. I felt like I was washing someone else's hair in the shower this morning... all my hair is gone! Two dustpans full of hair she took off my head.
Those of you with not-so-thick hair... don't wish for it. Please. Don't be jealous of those of us who have it either. It's not fun. It's heavy, you can't really do a damn thing with it, its just a pain in the ass more than anything. Plus, it's cheaper on shampoo & conditioner if you have thin hair. And you find out real quick that you can't just buy any old conditioner, either. Nope. You gotta buy the good stuff. I prefer Aussie, but every so often I switch to Pantene. Oh.. and Dove shampoo. That stuff rocks.

So there is my boring hair story of the day.

Happy Friday everyone...

Bugs, fruit, eating strange things and some other stuff

After you read this one, go read all the others... and play along!
This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen, the color puke green and the number 12345.

1. You are walking down the road and you look down. There is a bug. Do you step on it? If it's in my way, I squish it. Just because I can.
2. What is one fantasy that you want to come true more than any other? Living in the mountains, in the middle of nowhere, sitting on my front porch in my rocking chair watching deer and squirrels play by the creek that goes through my front yard.
3. Someone knocks on your door. Do you look out the window to see who it is before you open it? Do you open it regardless of who it is? I look and I always answer.... I figure if I saw them, they saw me.
4. Have you ever eaten Play Doh? No. I hate the smell of the stuff.
5. What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon as a child and why? Casper. He rocked.
6. Are you a "people watcher"? Not really. I'm afraid they will see me.
7. I have a bowl of fruit. There are apples, oranges & pears. You help yourself to one - which one do you choose? The orange.
8. What is your biggest pet peeve in the blogging world? People who don't comment...Especially with memes. but I'm guilty of that occasionally, too.
9. What is one religion that you could just never see yourself joining? Mormon. Because of all their weird rules. We lived in a Mormon community once and they freaked out that my dad didn't wear a shirt outside.
10. What word do you use far too often? Seriously?
11. How long do you spend in the shower? 5-10 minutes. I hate being in water.
12. If you were to write a personal ad about yourself, what would it say? 36 year old wife & mother, in need of a maid, child behavior expert and must be a massage therapist.
13. Your favorite flavor of soup is....? Chicken Dumpling.
14. You are sitting on a bench in the park and a bug walks in front of your feet.... do you squash him? I watch him for awhile, because it's not a person. I don't care if a bug sees me. But eventually I'll kill him.

I'm not one of THOSE moms

Demon #2 came home from school yesterday sick. I picked her up around 10am. School nurse says she's not running a fever but her throat is red. Fine, I go get her. The husband already had an appointment at the clinic for later that day so I called and asked if Demon #2 could just go with him... a double appointment. Sure, not a problem. The husband was going in because he's had a cold for over a week and he thought he might have his barbell from his tongue piercing stuck in his lung. (it wasn't)
So we go. Nevermind the fact that our appointment was at 5:45 and we didn't even get into the exam room until 6:30. That was enough to piss anyone off. The doc comes in and I tell him the symptoms and such... and I also say that the school suggested she be seen because of the strep and such going around. He says "so the school wanted you to bring her in" and I said, "yeah, I guess". He turns to look at me and says; "for a cold?". Hey.. the husband was already coming in, I wouldn't have made an appointment otherwise. Fucktard. Don't get on my nerves you ass. He looks in Demon #2's throat... sort of. Barely. I would have done a better job. Thats all he does. Not another thing. No throat culture, nothing. Proceeds to write a prescription. WTF?

You all know where this is headed.... ok, those of you who know how I feel about prescriptions...

I ask what the prescription is for. Clariton.

"And that is...??"

He says its a decongestant. Well I got all sorts of that shit at home. Why do I need a prescription for this? Ok, so what else is on that notepad??


Whoa baby. Oh no. WTF is that for? "I thought she just has a cold?"

"This is for just in case she has something else?"

SOMETHING ELSE? You dumb fuck piece of crap who got your diploma out of a cracker jack box... isn't it his job to check to see if she has SOMETHING ELSE? Not just shove an antibiotic down her throat and hope for the best. I don't think so. I took the prescription and shoved it up his ass in my purse and went home.

The husband also has this death cold that only antibiotoics can cure... he's taking the antibiotics. He's a big boy, he can make his own decisions but I refuse to give my child anything she doesn't need. She can fight this death cold off the old fashioned way - with homemade chicken soup that I made and some sleep.

Antibiotics my ass.

For a cold.

Sunday Stealing: The Random Question Meme

Sunday Stealing: The Random Question Meme

2. Where do you live? Not in a shoe. Not in a cave. Not under the sea.

5. Do you want/have kids? Why? Do you have some for sale?

6. Have you ever thought about converting your religion? I never really thought of going through the process or anything. I have many beliefs of many religions, I think the one that I connect most to is Wiccan. But I think a lot of that is because I also believe, quite strongly, that what we should be worshipping most is the land and the power of mother nature. I suppose thats the American Indian in me.

I always say that this is the gift she left me... now I can never forget what my mom looked like, all I have to do is look in the mirror. There are very few pictures of her, so it's a great gift.

12. Where did you grow up? Can I just echo the words of #11?

13. Where do you want to go on vacation? South Dakota

15. What can’t you wait for? to meet my Kimber and hug her and squeeze her.

16. When’s the last time you told someone you loved him or her and meant it? Yesterday I told the husband that. I suppose I meant it.

Saturday 9: Your Bestest Day

Saturday 9: Your Bestest Day

1. What one day of your life do you think was your best day? Two of them - the day I got Saki and years ago on the day I got Max.
You thought I was gonna say the birth of my demons, didn't you? Those were not good days. I was in pain and something the size of a fucking bowling ball was pushing itself out of my woohoo. Thats supposed to be the best days? Yeah right.
The best day was the day before Demon #1 was born... didn't have a parenting care in the world, hows that?
It wasn't the day I got married because everyone who's had a wedding knows how fricken stressful that is.
2. What one day of your life do you think was your worst day? The day I married my ex-husband. For so many reasons. That was just a bad day all around. Seeing the look on the husband's face (my current husband) that night when he realized I did get married was one of the worst things in the world... yeah, long story. I'll tell the story some day.
3. If you had to pick the best year of your life, when was it and why? 1995. We were young, starting out as parents, broke out of our minds, got married, lived in a shithole of a trailer house (trailer trash, we were!!!). It was good times. In all honesty, I miss those days.
4. If you had to pick the worst year of your life, when was it and why? I'd have to figure out the year, but it was my 6th grade year. We were living in Idaho and my parents decided to go back to construction, so I moved back to MN to live with my sister. Changed schools - twice. Just a lot of adjusting to living in someone else's house, new schools... it was harsh.
5. Most recently, what night did you do something that you loved? Don't remember, honestly.
6. Most recently, what night did you do something that you hated? Last night. Slept with a sick husband.
7. Tell us about your best relationship that did not work out. If it was the best, why wouldn't it have worked out?
8. Tell us about your worst romantic relationship that you’ve had. I suppose the ex-husband, although I never thought of putting him and romantic in the same sentence.
9. Is there a celebrity that you’d love to spend a “no hold bars” night with? Yeah, ok, seriously people... we've been over this. But just to change it up a bit, I'll pick someone else.... Travis Tritt.... as long as he sings to me.

Friday Rambles

No memes today... at least none that interest me, so I'll just fill in the space with the random thoughts.

- Everytime I lather a bar of soap to the point where the soap drips out of my hand, I think of my mom. It's one of the few memories I have of her - being in the bathtub and her giving me soap lather/bubbles.
- I need a hair cut. It's awful. It's so dry and yucky. The husband is cringing because my hair is getting longer again to where he likes it. He wants it back down to my waist. Ack. Thats a lot of hair to deal with, not sure if I'm up for it.
- It's gonna be 40 degrees today so I have to get Saki out for a walk. Now that it's warming up maybe I can lose this junk on my ass.
- I hate birch trees. They drop sticks.
- I need more stickers on my laptop.
- I took out a bunch of old CDs that I burned a few years ago... I hadn't heard some of those songs since then! I love hearing songs I haven't heard in a long time.
- My new addiction is CMT's Classics videos. It's amazing to see how much some people have aged.... and I feel old when I realize some of the songs that are now "classics".
- I wonder if my roses survived the winter.
- My curtain rod has been half falling down in my kitchen window for almost a month and it bugs me.

Scary Cats, Tom Cruise, Smiling At Sarcasm, And More!

1. This cat- Link- scary or cute?
I think it's cute. If it was a calico, then I'd think it was scary. I hate calicos. Yuck. I just realized that I had a dream last night that I went into our basement and there were 15-20 stray cats down there.
2. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes reproducing again. Good idea or don't care?
I don't really care. They are freaky ass people - ever notice that they are ALWAYS happy & smiling? Life ain't that good. And this whole detoxing shit that Katie is doing? Gimme a break. They both need their heads fixed and Tom needs to fall off a couch backwards and hit his.
3. Do you smile at strangers when you make eye contact?
If they are hot, of course.
4. What percentage of your sarcasm isn't really sarcasm at all?
99.9% of it. My sarcasm is like birth control.
5. If you were to be a dog breed, which breed would you be?
a Golden Retriever, of course! Because they are beautiful, smart, soft, willing to please and you tell me... does anyone NOT love a golden when they see one?
6. Go grab the closest book. Open up to page 27. Whats the 4th sentence?
You'll enjoy deliciuos food served in Amish homes, take part in a private crafting class and learn about the "Plain People" and their simple, inspirational way of life.
7. When's the last time someone put one over on you, told you a story that you totally fell for when it wasn't anywhere near true?
I tend to believe anything someone tells me. I really can't think of the last time in particular though. It was probably one of the demons.
8. Ever seen Michael Jackson in person? No.
9. Do you have a gut?
ha ha yep. Gained 20 lbs quitting smoking. Now you would think that since I started again I'd lose the weight? Nope.. ain't happening. All 20 lbs is still there.
10. What is one thing in your kitchen you have too many/too much of? Bowls. Like plastic bowls... the storage kind? Need a certain size, color? I've got it.
11. Ever had a colon cleansing?
Nope and I prefer it dirty, thank you.

Have I Ever--

Have You Ever-- (stolen from Nurseexec, but she said I could!)

1. Jumped out of an airplane? Why in sam hell would anyone ever want to seriously do this? Not me. I never have and I won't. Unless, of course, someone throws a peanut butter cup out the window. Then I might think about it.

2. Won something? I won like $75 at a raffle one time. Actually I've won a few raffles, but that was the largest one. I've won on a few scratch offs before. Oh! And I won a Toby Keith CD from his website a few years ago.

3. Moved away from your home town? My parents moved us away when I was younger, but we ended up back here. I moved away... a couple miles down the road... during my "finding myself" years. I ended up back here, imagine that.

4. Been in the hospital? Well yeah... I spent a lot of time in one when my dad was going through that shit a couple years ago. But me personally? Having my 2 kids was the only major hospital visit. Well, unless you wanna count the couple hours in the ER when I had my motorcycle accident in my teen years and the other time when my ex-husband thought it would be a wonderful idea to slam a radio into my head.

5. Grown your own vegetables? I had a garden once. One day I went out and it was doing ok, the next day I went out and the green beans had taken over the whole damn garden. I've tried growing tomatoes here in town, but I find it much easier just to walk over to my parents house and help myself to thiers.

6. Stayed up all night? Yeah, a few times. I don't particularly care for it and it tends to give me a headache. I need my sleep. I'm not this beautiful for nothing... beauty sleep, people, beauty sleep! I think the last time was maybe 5 or so years ago. There was this time that my bestest friend & I stayed up really late, but I think we eventually went to sleep to catch a nap before the kids woke up.

7. Gone swimming in the ocean? Yep I have. I find it very cold and scary, though. There's sharks in those waters.

8. Been out of the country? Just a few feet into Canada... my dad got pissed off at the searching of our van at the border and we turned around. True story. But he did turn to me and say "well now you can say you've been to Canada". Thanks, Dad.

9. Played a video game? LOL Yeah. My best friend in high school used to spend
hours playing on her Nintendo. Then when the demons were little we had a Sega and I would play hours of Road Rash - good times!

10. Been chased by an animal? Just my dogs.

11. Cheated on someone? Can I skip this question? I was a bad girl....

12. Been to a theme park? Disneyworld & I guess Valleyfair counts too. My dream was to meet Mickey Mouse and I did! It was great. I turned into a 5 year old in 2.2 seconds.

13. Played Scrabble? I wanna know who hasn't, thats my question.

14. Colored your hair? I don't even know my real hair color anymore. I think I've colored my hair every color besides black.

15. Gotten in trouble over something you said or did on the internet? Not really. Well, maybe. Who are we getting in trouble with? Be more specific, people! I have gotten banned from a forum or two in my life. That was fun.

Sunday Stealing

1. What is your favorite sit-down restaurant? TGIFridays. Nobody can beat their steaks. Dont' tell me someone's is better... don't crush my spirit.
2. What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it? Oh come on, seriously people, do we not know the answer to this already? Ok, I'll skip the pbcups and go for some real food. Pork Chops & mashed tatos smothered in butter & peas. Thats a meal fit for a queen.
And, of course, a peanut butter shake for dessert.
3. Have you ever had anything removed from your body? Just some ex-boyfriends I didn't want anymore. Oh.. and on 2 different occasions, an alien life force that was taking residence in my belly. The first one would try to birth itself out of my belly button every now and then, but I'd poke it and it would stop.
4. What is the last heavy item you lifted? The kitchen table. I didn't really lift it, but it's good enough for this answer. I hand scrubbed the area rug under it.
5. Have you ever been knocked unconscious? Yep. Stupid deer. We (one of the ex's I've had removed) hit a deer while on a motorcycle. It wasn't pretty. I have no idea how long I was out though. I think I came to in the ambulance, but I'm not sure if that was the 1st time or not.
6. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die? No. One more thing to cause a fricken anxiety attack? No thank you.
7. If you could change your name, what would you change it to? Alya or Beth, since I didn't name my girls that. Or maybe Isabella - thats my mom's middle name.
8. What’s your goal for the year? To double what I made last year in my shops. That would throw me over what my husband makes :) He's not one of those that would mind, but I would just love to hear that I make more money than my husband!
9. Last person you hugged? Krissy-Bear (aka Demon #2). She's a hugging fool.
10. First place you went this morning? First I went to the hanger-thing behind the door to get my robe. Then I went back to the bed because my slippers were next to it, then I went to the back door to let the dogs out.... .am I supposed to be answering these questions after I actually do something amazing?
11. Do you always answer your phone? No.
12. It’s four in the morning and you get a text message, who is it? A ghost. I have texting blocked.
13. If you could change your eye color what would it be? Ice blue. My husband has a weakness for blonde haired, blue eyed women. (anyone notice I'm a brown eyed brunette? Figure that one out) I can do the blonde, but I can't do the eyes. My eyes are too dark brown to change with contacts.
14. What’s on your wish list for your birthday? A new camera lens
15. Does the future make you more nervous or excited? Everything makes me nervous
16. Do you have any saved texts? Dude, weren't you paying attention?
17. Ever been in a car wreck? Not really a car wreck. We totalled that bike when we hit there deer though.
18. Do you have an accent? Yeah, you betcha I do!
19. What was the last song to make you cry? When they played Hurt at the end of that 2 hour biography I watched on Johnny Cash last week. And then they had his daughter telling about when she first saw the video and she told her dad that it was depressing and sounded like he was going to die and that he was saying goodbye... and he smiled and said "I am". Dammit Johnny.
20. What did you do last night? Watched a horror flick that had Lindsay Lohan in it... she's actually really good at screaming.
21. Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom? I think I did hit it once.
22. Current hate right now? Cold temps
23. Met someone who changed your life? Everyone changes your life in some way or another.
24. How did you bring in the New Year? Sleeping
25. What song represents you? I have no idea. I'd say it'd have to be a Johnny Cash song though, but none come to mind, so maybe I'm wrong.

Can anyone tell me where sweetcopswife is? Did I miss something?
