Thursday Thunker's Week! Take Two

Welcome to the May 28th 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 THE THURSDAY THUNKERS!!!!!

These questions were submitted by Thursday Thunker participants! (so don't blame Kimber & Berleen for the quality of the questions.....)

we are picking up where we left off last week, which explains why we are starting with #21 instead of #1. Great work on the questions submissions everyone! It gave Kimber & I a much needed mental break.
We posted these questions just as they were listed on the participant's blog.

21. How many states have you been in? NJ, NY, CT, MA, ME, VT, OH, IN, IL, KY, WI, DE, MD, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, WY, CO, UT, TX, MS, CA, OR, HA I think that's it so 27 more than half!

22. If a sexist Man is called a pig, what is a sexist Woman called? ME?

23. You see the one person who you absolutely despise. If you were guarentee'd that he/she couldn't say or do anything back to you.... What would you do??I'm pretty much a what you see is what you get person, there is very limited filtering between my brain and my tongue, so most people that I dislike know exactly why. So I guess that leaves celebrities etc. obama And I'd probably tell them, although since I'm kind of a nobody, I don't think they'd care anyway.

24. How many states are to the right of you? And don’t give us a map to look at. shore Since I live in NJ, and have spent a lot of time down the shore, this is a geography question I can answer. NONE!! To the right of me is the Atlantic Ocean. Although since the earth is actually a big ball and if you keep going right eventually you'll hit the US again I guess I can also say a lot of them. But as I suck in Geography and no map is specified I'm going with none.

25. You can go anywhere in the world for free. Where are you? ThAT'S easy! Ireland!! irish_castle It would be my dream vacation, and will be someday, after Angie's done with college and everything!!

26. HOW MANY FINGERS AM I HOLDING UP? SINCE you had to type the question and typing has your fingers pointing DOWN, I'd say none. Unless you are seriously talented and type with your toes, in which case - how should I know??

27. Are you a boxing fan? Do you think there will be a rematch of the Hatton-Pacquiao fight? Not really a fan. Can't stand heavyweight fights. delahoyaLiked Oscar De La Hoya. But haven't followed since.

28. What is the most disgusting thing you have ever eaten? That I consider disgusting?? That would be liver when I was a kid. That other people may not consider palatable? Probably Natto. nattoI know of very few non- Japanese people that eat it. I have asked for it ( rarely have I seen it on a menu) and had the waiter ask me if I know what it is. Duh, if it's not on the menu and I'm asking I've heard of it. It's basically fermented soybeans, that end up kind of sticky/slimy. but seriously yummy!

29. Is it cloudy right now? Yes, and it's been on and off drizzling all day, supposed to be on and off rain for the rest of the week, don't know about the weekend yet.

30. What is your dream job? When I figure that out I'll be sending out a resume. I really don't know what I want to be when I grow up. (As I'm over 40 I may be running out of time) For now I know that although I've had many different jobs in many different locations for the company I work for now, I've been there over 18 years and am only a bit more than a year and a half away from 5 weeks vacation. I can't quit now!!

31. Someone gives you a $500 gift card to WalMart or Target. What are you going to buy?Well. I don't like Walmart yarn. Target doesn't sell yarn. I buy my laundry detergent and fabric softener from those two stores ( they have the purple snuggle) Probably some clothes for Angie. maybe a couple video games. I'm kind of boring on the shopping front.

32. When you were little, what did you want to be "when you grow up"? And, how much different is your occupation now from where you thought it would be when you were younger? I was one of those kids that wanted to be something different every time you asked. So some of the ones that had some longevity was thorasic surgeon, 'til I found out they practice drawing blood and hooking iv's on THEMSELVES!! first female bullriding champ. Soldier of fortune, NASA engineer , NASCAR engineer, Navy Seal.......
Now? I'm a mom, at work I do inventory mgmt, unload carpet off trucks and plug the holes left by mgmt.

33. what was your favorite toy as a child? Probably a toss up between my bb gun and my erector set.

34. How do you think these things up?? I'm thinking alcohol or other mind bending substances.

35. Why do you think so many "fake" veterans get away with pretending? Why don't people question them more (especially the media who eats up their stories?) Did not know there were any "fake" veterans pretending.

36. What is the last place you had a good cry and why? I don't really cry that often. I think the last time was after my dad's funeral 11 years ago. I didn't really get along with him, didn't even speak to him for several years. After my daughter was born we developed a sort of civil relationship, because he really loved his granddaughter. So I guess I was crying because there would be no more chances to ever improve our relationship past where it had been, and because I couldn't find a way to feel sad during the funeral, so I felt like a "bad" child. And because during crisis I tend to be the "rock" and then I fall apart later.

37. What do you mean?Jellybean??jellybean

38. Which Sesame Street Character do you relate with the most and why? OSCAR, because I have a general disdain for most of the planet,OscarI just really want to be left alone most of the time and I can be a serious cranky grouchy bitch at times.

39. What song one would you listen to over and over if you absolutely had to? Why Must Somebody AlwYS HAVE TO DIE by John Rich

40. Did you ever make what you believed at the time to be a horrible mistake - that in hindsight turned out to lead you on the best path in your life? I backed out of going to West Point because I was a wuss about all the military discipline. After it was too late, I realized it probably would have beenthe best thing for me as I still have no discipline in life. But if I hadn't I wouldn't have gone to NJIT instead and never would have met my husband or had my daughter. Curt Angie and Ria

41. If you could change one thing on your person, what would it be? I'd drop about 75 pounds.

42. What’s your favorite show to watch on television nowadays? TV just generally sucks nowadays. I mostly watch sports, NASCAR, the History Channel, Military Channel, Science Channel etc. I like The Big Bang Theory .

43. Do you believe there is life after death?I think you are better off believing in it, than not. If you believe and there is you're good. If you believe and there isn't - well you'll be dead so it won't matter anyway. If you don't believe and there is - you're kinda screwed. If you don't believe and there isn't it won't matter cause you'll be dead anyway. So the logic points to you are better off believing.

I've gotten rid of the word verification for posting comments. To tell the truth, I have trouble reading the new stuff they are using. Feel free to disagree, but spammy or obnoxious comments will not go up.
