Sneaking Out

Welcome to the October 7th edition of Thursday Thunks!

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....

Thursday Thunks: Sneaking Out

The TT questions are brought to you by Bud, the color of a pumpkin pie and the number 3333.

1. When you snuck out of your house for the first time, who were you meeting and why? Out the window, across the porch roof, down the trellis...  meeting Tommy ... slurp... guy around the corner.... you've known me this long... guess.

2. Tell us about the last time that you got your heart broken. Extra points if you publish their naked photo.  That would have been a couple weeks ago, Tony in the lead, just before the white flag lap... runs out of gas... has to coast around the final lap, crossed the finish line while winner was doing burn out.  I wanted to curl into a ball behind the couch..... If I had naked pictures of Smoke, I wouldn't be sharing them!

3. Tell us about someone you know named Bob. (Yes, we know this is a stupid question. Stupid is what we do best.)  Bob Nardelli, corporate destroyer.  Was paid over 200 million to leave Home Depot,  Chrysler hired him, he flat out told Congress he wouldn't give up any of his perks, laid of thousands, was paid millions to go away.... yeah, I hate his guts.

4. We just found the perfect retail space. We are giving you the store. What’s its name and what do you sell?  Sip and Knit.... would be part coffee/tea shop with those big comfy chairs and couches, coffees, teas, cocoas and sammies and desserts, and part yarn store with amazing colors, textures, featuring indie spinners/dyers a class/club room and a store cat (can I have a store cat with food around?)  And I'd get my friend Grace (best ever KIP buddy) to sit and knit to encourage others, and I'd get her to knit my samples!
5. Tell us about your last “friend with benefits". But it would be so much more fun telling you about my next!  Actually I can't, we're friends w/o benefits now.

6. Kimber worries a lot. What was the last thing that you worried about? How my daughter was adjusting to college.

7. Do you believe “once a cheater, always a cheater”? Not necessarily.  Some people just are cheaters and don't care to change.  Other times, I think there is something wrong in the relationship caused by both people's actions or inactions and definitely non-communication, so one or both people end up having needs fulfilled somewhere else.  If the communication is fixed, and both parties are able to look honestly at the relationship, it can be fixed.

8. Tell us about moving out of your parent’s home. Who did you move in with?  Dad a deacon, me an embarrassment, Dad issues ultimatum, me had issues with ultimatums, Dad gets mad, me comes home to all my stuff on the sidewalk, dog tied to fire hydrant, cat leashed to dog.  Who did I move in with?  See  #1. (whenever I ran away, I ended up in his walk in closet)

9. What was your most recent regret? Ordering the large caramel apple latte at dunkin donuts... blech....

10. Berleen recently ranted on face book about having to got to parent-teacher conferences when your child has great grades. What was the stupidest meeting that you most recently endured?  Three hours this morning of you all suck, we should fire all of you and hire in people for half the pay that would be able to fail audits just as well, blah, blah, blah.  Ok we did fail the audit. (lowest score since I've been in the building in 2004)  But we failed because Dept Supvs, Ops Supvs didn't do their work!  So where was the Ops Mgr?  And not for nothing, but my area got 100%.  So it was time for my nail appointment, I got up and left.

11. Do you collect anything? In no particular order, Looney Tunes stuff, Tony Stewart Stuff, 49er stuff, friends who for some obvious deep seated self hate issues are 
Cowboy fans, and oh yeah... Yarn.

12. Has anyone ever told you that you were in the wrong job?All the time.

13. Is there something that you’d like to complete before the end of 2010? organizing/redoing my bedroom. Since I share it with Curt, not likely.


  1. Wrong job huh? I would have puked with #9. LOL

  2. Thanks for stopping by Ria! Yeah, me too I love Pinky and the Brain. #10, sounds like you're a fellow retail sufferer like me. Have a wonderful evening, and a great weekend!

  3. i am there I wold gladly sit and knit for you in your store!!!!!


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.
