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.

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? The local school stopped selling candy - it's "junk food". But be that as it may, if they had Krackel, Crispy or Caramel ( the local band used to sell band candy that had caramel inside that was awesome) then yes.

2. The end of the world is tomorrow and you are out of milk - do you go buy some? Tough question. What time tomorrow?? I put milk in the first couple of cups of coffee I drink in the morning, so unless it was ending in the middle of the night why would I be miserable about it. Then again, if the world was ending tomorrow, I'd have to drink all my beer - wouldn't want it to go to waste, so I might be drinking my coffee black.

3. Have you ever picked up the phone and called someone that you hadn't talked to in years? Actually, that's how I ended up with my husband. We were friends in college, he was older and we lost touch when he graduated. A couple of years after I graduated, I ran into his best friend in the mall, we got to reminiecing and he said I should give Curt a call. So I did. We ended up going to a mutual friends wedding together, started dating, and now 20 years later are married with a 17 year old!

4. Whats on your computer desktop background? DSCF2668 Tony of course!!

5. What was the very first movie you saw in a movie theater? I'm pretty sure it was Star Wars. Not 100% sure. I didn't go to many movies when I was a kid.

6. If you had to take a 10th grade science test, do you think you would pass?10th grade was chemistry? Not sure. 11th grade was physics and I'm pretty sure I could still ace that.

7. Describe heaven. Why dwell on a place I'll never see??Heaven on earth would involve either a Starbucks quad venti non fat caramel macchiatto or Smithwicks, yarn - probably mmmalabrigo and awesome seats on a cool breezy but sunny day at a race track with Smoke winning the race.

8. Has a place that you lived ever been infested with some sort of insect or rodent? Not that I know - if I did I'd move. Seriously.

9. When you were a youngin', did you hide in the clothes racks at department stores?Once. Just once. Got my ass beat with my great grandfathers cane. WASN'T DOING THAT AGAIN!!

10. Is there anything in your vehicle that is broken? Not to my knowledge, although after teaching Angie to drive - and the car being a stick shift - the clutch is starting to slip and will need to be worked on this summer. Probably while she is in Ecuador.

11. What is something in your house that people would be surprise to find? There are a lot of things in my house people would not expect, I give off an image that is not always the complete picture. I am seriously multi faceted, and most people only see a few of those facets. A Bible that actually gets use would shock a whole lot of people, A copy of Beowulf in old English, skirts in my closet would shock even more, A six foot tall poseable, plush Wile E Coyote wearing a sweatshirt from my daughters dance studio and my first attempt at a knit hat that looks like a hat on him but not on someone without 2 foot ears sits at the dining room table.

12. Do you agree with the death penalty? Absolutely positively. If you kill us, we will kill you back. I do not believe in all the red tape and stuff that allows people to sit on death row for 20 years.

13. Whats your favorite type of bear?wocka wocka Fozzie of course!! Be the Bear!!

14. Where was the last place you went? Work this morning, then back home!

15. What if that person knocking at your door earlier was an adult selling candy bars... would you buy one? Wouldn't answer the door, if it was an adult was knocking.

  5. Great Granddad's cane sounds a tad tough. Whatever works, perhaps. Enjoy your day...

  6. OMG -- I LOVED those school candy bars with the caramel in them. I think of those things weekly. They were THE BEST. I miss them so much. Haven't had one in 20 years, but they're still on my mind, that's how good they were. *sigh*
