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.

the parking lot of a gas station in my brother's van on our trip to Sturgis. It was my brother's girlfriend, her sister & I. A pack of Bandidos were far too interested in the 2 bikes we had in the back of the van.

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.

10. What were you doing the Friday 2 weeks ago in the afternoon?

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

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

2. Taken from InsanityCafe Forums: If ghosts exist and are around us now, what happens if all life on Earth is destroyed? Would ghosts remain or also be destroyed? If ghosts are energy and energy on the planet is destroyed, wouldn't it destroy ghosts?
I don't think ghosts are energy, I think they are dead people's souls and I don't think souls can die so I guess they would be out floating around in space.

2097. Because I always said I wanted to live to be 125.

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.

Honey? NO!

I have to keep reminding the husband that his Harley cannot - and will not - turn into the same type of addiction that his snowmobiles did. Snowmobiles might be just like potato chips, but Harleys are not.

German Shepards

I played with two German Shepards today... reminds me of why I love those dogs. They just have a different feel; their nose, their ears, even their fur. There is just something about them.

I wonder if I wish hard enough if Saki will turn into one?

Whoopi Goldberg has no eyebrows and it bothers me

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness! We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Whoopi Goldberg. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. An actress can only play a woman. I'm an actor, I can play anything.
If you could experience any life form that was not a human of your sex, what would you pick and why?
A tiger. Just because I would like to tear the flesh off of a few people.
2. For some reason, all artists have self-esteem issues.
Do you have any self esteem issues? Do tell. (Since we all do.)
I do. I'll openly admit it. But I do agree that everyone does at some level. Those that don't are looked at as vain and kind of a holier than thou type.
3. I am the American Dream. I am the epitome of what the American Dream basically said. It said, you could come from anywhere and be anything you want in this country. That's exactly what I've done.
Do you believe in the American Dream or has it passed through time?
Yikes. Ok. I think there is an American dream, but I think it's become messed up. I think the Americans that stand on this ground now are getting pushed aside for those who want what we have. I just want to know why these people from India can come over with no money in their pockets and within 10 years own hotels and drive cars that are worth more than my house. Please explain THAT to me.
4. I don't have pet peeves, I have whole kennels of irritation.
It's been asked before, probably weekly, but what's irritating you today?
People. People who hold grudges, to be exact. It's not worth it.
5. I don't look like Halle Berry. But chances are, she's going to end up looking like me.
What do you think you'll end up looking like? (A picture would help.)
A sexy hot grandma, thats what I'll be! How can I post a future picture? Thats just silly.
6. I grew up in a time when it would never have occurred to anyone to tell me there was anything I couldn't do.
Has anyone told you that you could not do something?
The husband told me I can't have a new puppy.
7. I want Carl Sagan to explain the sky to me.
Is there anybody dead that you'd like to talk to?
My mom.
8. If every American donated five hours a week, it would equal the labor of 20 million full-time volunteers.
Have you ever done volunteer work?
Not anything to really speak of...
9. It's being willing to walk away that gives you strength and power - if you're willing to accept the consequences of doing what you want to do.
Have you ever walked away from a job and regretted it?
Nope. There's a reason I walked away from the one I did and I haven't looked back since.
10. Normal is in the eye of the beholder.
Are you normal? Explain
LOL Thats funny shit right there

I Rock

Yeah, I pretty much rock as a wife. After 38 years, the husband finally owns a Harley and it's all thanks to me. I bought it from a friend of ours... made the deal last summer and the husband didn't find out about it until last month. He's a pretty happy hubby, thats for sure.

It's a 1990 Springer Softail with only a little over 20k on it. Our friend just didn't ride it much, which turns out good for us.

Now if this stupid snow would just melt so we could actually go out riding!

Oh... and I baked him his favorite pie, lemon meringue. Because a Harley
just isn't enough for presents, I guess. I only attempt this pie once a year. They aren't that hard to make, but they suck.

In other news... found more lumps on my Serena Rosabella's tummy yesterday. She had some a few years ago that we had removed and it turned out NOT to be cancer, which was suprising because something like 95% of mammary lumps are cancerous. We got lucky. Hopefully we get lucky this time around too. She's 11 years old now and still my baby. She's a little princess who knows full well she's a princess.

Rock 'n Roll Fridays - Aerosmith


1. Dream On “Every time that I look in the mirror, All these
lines in my face getting clearer. The past is gone. It went by like dusk to dawn. Isn’t that the way. Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay” Do you pay dues or something such as a membership in a union, church, civic group, gang, etc?
I write a lot of checks to snowmobile clubs, does that count? I personally even belong to one.
2. Angel “Without your love, I’m nothing but a beggar. Without your love,
a dog without a bone…” What is your favorite dog breed?
You would think I"d say a golden because of my Saki, but
honestly... I've always had a weakness for German Shepards. Ever since I was little and befriended my brother's friend's shepard, Knuckles. Meanest dog in town, kids wouldn't go near him, the guy's mom wouldn't go near him, but me? I crawled in his doghouse with him. You make a friend with a shepard, you make a friend for life.

I know it's not unusual in an unusual sense, but it was the first place that popped into my mind because it was ... memorable?

Quack Quack

Something I found that was posted over at Insanity Cafe....
If you want to deliver the Gettysburg Address at the Lincoln Memorial, make sure you get a permit first. This is a lesson Phillip Howell, 25, learned the hard way this past Presidents' Day when he went to the memorial all prepared and was told by the police that he would have to take his speech elsewhere.

Howell was confused as to why it is actually illegal to read the words carved into the memorial’s wall in a loud voice, he told the Daily Caller, but he obeyed. Instead, the 6-foot-4 Howell, who looks a lot like Abe Lincoln himself, moved to the bottom of the steps and delivered the rest of the speech. Simple, right?

Howell may have gotten around the law (sort of, anyway), but obscure and bizarre laws are not unique to Washington, DC. Here are 10 strange laws that still stand around the country:

In Alabama, it's illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle: So, um, duh? Does anyone think this SHOULD be legal? Did we really need a law telling us this?
In Massachusetts, candy may not contain more than 1% of alcohol. While the law makes sense to me having just eaten some pretty potent chocolate liquor balls in Belgium, it sounds a little strange.
In New Jersey, it's illegal to pump your own gas.
In New Mexico, "idiots" cannot vote. Don't believe me? Read it: "Every citizen of the United States, who is over the age of twenty-one years, and has resided in New Mexico twelve months, in the county ninety days, and in the precinct in which he offers to vote thirty days, next preceding the election, except idiots, insane persons, and persons convicted of a felonious or infamous crime unless restored to political rights, shall be qualified to vote at all elections for public officers."
In Ohio, it's illegal to mistreat anything of great importance.
In Arizona, hunting camels is prohibited. Because there are so many camels?
In South Carolina, you must be 18 to play pinball. Obviously this one is because of the many wild and crazy pinball machines in other states, right?
In Maryland, you may not have oral or anal sex. Good thing Clinton was technically in DC, no?
In Florida, it's illegal to sell your children, which begs the question: Is it legal somewhere else?
In Pennsylvania, until 2002, one was not allowed to swear in front of women and children.

So much for land of the free. Although my favorite law isn't listed.... It is illegal to walk across the Minnesota-Wisconsin border with a duck on your head.

Do farts really stink?

Do farts really stink or are we just conditioned to believe that they do?

I was just thinking about this because of a show I watched the other day. We are genetically made to think certain parts of the opposite sex are attractive for procreation purposes. Scents of people are the same way. They went on to say how the view of what is attractive has changed over the years, but in some parts of the world it hasn't. Then it got me thinking of other things that we are conditioned to think... like how years ago girls got married & started a family in their teenage years, etc. Don't ask me how it got me thinking about farts (probably because the cat farted, who knows)... but who decided that farts stink? And that flowers smell good? If you think about it, many animals go based off the smell of that particular area but yet we find it repulsive.
