Milk might be on the science test

Welcome to the June 24th version of Thursday Thunks!
(which we always seem to post on Wednesday)
Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!
This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen, the number 1559 and the color calico.
Go play here. I wrote the questions this week so you are obligated to answer them.

1. Someone knocks at your door. You answer it. It's a kid from the local school selling candy bars for a fundraiser. Do you buy one?
I'll admit it. I'm a sucker for kids and fundraisers. Especially considering my kids wouldn't even go to their grandparents to try to sell the crap - any kid that actually knocks on my door deserves my contribution.

2. The end of the world is tomorrow and you are out of milk - do you go buy some?
Of course. You can't eat chocolate chip cookies without it.. I'd pick up some peanut butter cups while I was there, too.

3. Have you ever picked up the phone and called someone that you hadn't talked to in years?
Yeah and it's scary as hell

4. Whats on your computer desktop background?
a black & white picture of Mel Gibson holding a black kitten.

5. What was the very first movie you saw in a movie theater?

6. If you had to take a 10th grade science test, do you think you would pass?
I probably didn't pass it in 10th grade...

7. Describe heaven.
green grass... mountains in the distance... a stream that is crystal clear and warm to the touch... all sorts of critters running around and are not shy of humans... deer, bunnies, raccoons... I'm sitting in the grass with my Max & Murray (and all my other pets that have passed on) by by side and my family & friends are all around laughing and eating peanut butter cups.

8. Has a place that you lived ever been infested with some sort of insect or rodent?
No.... well, I had this house once that was infested with a guy who turned out to be a rodent, does that count?

9. When you were a youngin', did you hide in the clothes racks at department stores?
I don't remember, but I remember going into a different aisle and then running back to my mom. I grabbed onto her leg because I was afraid (not sure why) and when I looked up, it wasn't my mom... I found her farther down that aisle. I'm not sure, but I think I was really traumatized by that event.

10. Is there anything in your vehicle that is broken?
I shouldn't have asked that question this morning because when I went out to start my car today it had a seizure and wouldn't start. Seriously! It started making this clicking sound under the dash where the wires are and wouldn't stop. I thought for sure it was going to spontaneously combust or something. We aren't sure why, but the battery is dead. The husband did say the remote starter was only 1/2 hooked up.

11. What is something in your house that people would be surprise to find?
Most people are surprised by the snake.

12. Do you agree with the death penalty?
Yes I do as long as they are 1149% guilty beyond any and all reasonable doubt, which I know doesn't happen often. Charles Manson is one that should have gotten the death penalty.

13. Whats your favorite type of bear?
Demon #2!! She's my Krissy-Bear

14. Where was the last place you went?
outside to watch the husband try to fix my broken car.

15. What if that person knocking at your door earlier was an adult selling candy bars... would you buy one?
Ok now that is just wrong. I'd suddenly have a peanut allergy or something and politely decline their offer... after I asked them if they had a permit to peddle in our city.

Fifteen Movies

The rules: List fifteen of your most influential MOVIES without thinking too much about them.

1.) Lethal Weapon ( the first time I laid eyes on Mel...)
2.) Wizard of Oz ( isn't it everyones? )

3.) Psycho (the first horror movie I ever watched. I was in my sister's apartment and I was like 9 or 10 years old. Scared the fricken crap outta me)

4.) A Nightmare on Elm Street (the first horror movie that I ever saw after Psycho that started the obsession with horror movies)
5.) A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 - Dream Warriors (the movie Taryn is named after)
6.) Edward Sissorhands (the movie Jason & I went to on our first date... if you could call it a date)
7.) The Wraith (I'm not sure why I chose this movie. I just love it)
8.) E.T. (again... who wasn't? But I did see it in the theater with my stepmom, one of my favorite childhood memories!)
9.) Clan of the Cave Bear (got me hook on the Earth Children's series)
10.) Girl, Interrupted (I fell in love with Angelina Jolie in this movie)
11.) Grease (again.. if you aren't, you aren't human)
12.) Bambi (it's Bambi! I love Bambi.)

13.) Who's That Girl (yeah, that Madonna movie. She had a cougar. I named my cat, Murray, after it)
14.) Alive (thats the movie Jason, Missy & I watched at our house while I was in labor with Taryn)
15.) Oliver & Company (it was the first Disney movie we bought after Taryn was born. She called it "the kitty movie". Ironically years later she insisted on a kitten we acquired to be named Oliver. She didn't really understand why she wanted him named that so bad.... )
