At the Zoo: TT100

 Congratulations to
at once a week...a great milestone

Welcome to the September 2nd edition of 
Thursday Thunks!
(which we always seem to post on Wednesday)
Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!
We pick a subject, and your job is to interpret it anyway you want.
Write about it on your blog... simple as that.
Maybe you can interpret it as a picture - we don't care!

Please only leave a link if you have written a Thursday Thunks post.
Don't forget to go visit the other
participants' blogs.
Read and comment about all their Thursday Thunks responses!
That's what all this is about after all, isn't it?
We'll have so much fun and become lifelong friends....

The TT questions are brought to you by Bud, the color of my neighbor's wife's eyes and the number 33,333.

1. Would you rather have a pet hippo or a pet elephant? ELephant - you can train them to do cool stuff, you can ride them.  Hippo's are really really mean angry animals and will kill people for no apparent reasons.

2. Why do you think bananas are shaped the way they are?So that when I was in college, I would be able to have breakfast and screw with the boys' heads at the same time?

3. In one word (OK, you can go three to four MAX) , what do most people describe you as? Most as in generic population that has the misfortune of knowing me?  Or the significantly smaller subset of my friends?

4. Choice (stupid but a choice…): Loss of vision, ability to speak or hearing - which do you choose? (you have to choose one....) It's like a law. But we can't make you.  going to cheat hear.  I'd pick hearing.  I'm already partially deaf anyway.

5. Do you like lemons? Do you use them to clean with or just as a food source? Or are you saving them up for 2012? Love lemons!  Go through a lot as I cook,never cleaned with them.  Used to se them to highlight my hair when I was a kid.

6. When you are feeling icky with that sickness feeling, what is your first choice for feel-better medicine? Herbal tea - with fresh ginger root boiled in the water.

7. You are starving. You have not had anything to eat for days. In front of you is poison ivy, a live hissing cockroach, and a rotten stinky piece of some sort of mystery meat to eat. Which would you pick and why? If I had some salad dressing I'd go for the poison ivy.  Why?  Well I'm sort of cheating. I am not allergic to poison ivy, oak or sumac.  I ripped a bunch out at my mom's house this spring. Nothing.  ( I was really evil as a child.  There was poison ivy in the woods behind the school.  I got into a lot of fights.  I'd make sure the fight would be nearby and I'd roll with the other kid through it.  Seriously, I is evil)

8. Who was the last person you bought a present for? What was it? Will you buy Berleen one? Does a cupcake count?  I bought Carl a cupcake yesterday for his birthday.  I don't think a cupcake with mousse icing would make it to Berleen.

9. Name 3 things you want your kids to learn before they grow up. (If you don't have kids, feel free to explain to the other players why you chose the “no kids“ choice. Yea. I know. (Those who have children will NEVER get it. And no, don‘t explain it…)  She already is 18!  But they were - drive a stick shift (check)  cook well enough that she won't be tempted by takeout (check) and be self-confident enough to hold her own (check, check)

10. What was your favorite toy as a child? What happened to it? My bb gun.  I stopped playing with it when I got a real one.  It's probably in my uncle's attic.

11. If you could paint your house ANY color you wanted and your friends, family & neighbors would love the color from the moment they saw it, what would it be? YELLOW

12. If the Pillsbury Dough Boy got into a fight with Mrs. Butterworth who would win? And would anybody get hurt? And do we seem desperate even asking? Totally would go to Mrs Butterworth - the woman's got a set of guns!

13. What was the last thing you would guess that Kimber took a picture of? Oh. And consider the meme listed below. Click on it. It rocks. The inside of her pocketbook?

Tomorrow, please join us!
This is a GREAT meme...
This week features the lyrics of ELVIS!


  1. See the more you post the more we are the same. I'm hard of hearing real bad as well. Have been all my life. :) LOL .... set of guns ... Too funny. :) My favorite answer however is number 2. LOL Too funny :) Have a great Thursday :)

  2. I remember having girlfriends that used lemons for their hair! That brought back some interesting memories...


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.
