Thursday Thunks for Feb. 12

Jumping into today's Thursday Thunks

1. You are driving down the road and there is a puddle in the road. A big puddle. Not one that will really wreck your car or anything, but a big puddle. There is no other cars in front of you or behind you - do you drive through the puddle or drive around it?

As long as nobody is standing there to get splashed--heck yeah! Splashing in puddles is truly one of the simple joys of life. But I would never ever ever knowingly and/or intentionally splash someone.


2. Go to Google Images, type in any word that comes to mind and post the 1st picture you see.



3. A college calls you up and says that you have been selected to take get any degree that you want on their dollar.... what do you choose?

Well, this is pretty obvious for anybody who knows me. Graphic design.


4. Are you blogging on a laptop or desktop?

Desktop


5. Which store, excluding a grocery store, do you shop at most often?

Another obvious one. Target. Duh.

6. My daughters tried out for the school musical last night. Were you ever in a school play/musical? Which one?

I was in several plays in high school: Our Town, Deadwood Dick, The Glass Menagerie, Romeo and Juliet, and a few one-acts. I was in one play in college: a summer production of Bye Bye Birdie. I also worked backstage for a few college plays, including Oliver, 42nd Street, Anything Goes, and others.

7. I read yesterday that a school PTA group wants to try to ban white bread, cakes, brownies or any other "treat" from their lunch menus... plus make kids' lunchboxes brought from home not include any "junk food". Thoughts on that one?

Absolutely insane. Especially the part about what kids bring from home. For one thing, banning things will only increase their desirability. It's all about moderation, not elimination. How about teaching a little more personal responsibility instead? Just because it's offered doesn't mean you have to eat it. (This coming from a person who can't turn down a free treat to save her life--literally--but I don't expect other people to ban it just so it doesn't go into my mouth.)


8. How many people can your kitchen table seat?

Without adding chairs, two. But we have two other chairs that can be easily retrieved. And we can add a couple leaves to fit a bunch more.

9. What time is it right now?

5:36 p.m.


10. Walk out the front door of your house/apartment, turn right, walk 2 blocks. What do you see?

I have to admit I cheated a little on this one. I was going to the library anyway, so I pulled over at the two-block mark to take the picture. I didn't actually get off my butt and walk.

That is the coolest thing that you took a picture! I thought of saying to do that, but I figured nobody would!! Excellent!
