Thursday Thunks

Welcome to this week's edition of Thursday Thunks. To check out other player's answers to these questions, click here.

Would you let your children go Trick or Treating at Michael Jackson's house? No way. I know they have that whole reasonable doubt thing going for them legally, but my daughter's safety is not something I am willing to take a chance on.

Did you eat paste and/or glue as a child? Not that I remember. I did always love the smell of paste though.

Look at the wall to your right, what is on it? A window. On the window sill is a poor jasmine plant that I keep forgetting to water. I really shouldn't be allowed to care for houseplants. It always ends badly.

Do you put butter and/or salt on your popcorn? Butter AND salt. I don't eat much popcorn though because I hate the way all the kernel shells get caught in your teeth. Drives me nuts.

What does your favorite coffee cup look like?

What was your favorite Halloween costume? Right now I'm having a hard time remembering my Halloween costumes. I guess the main one I'm remembering right now is when I was Daphne from Scooby Doo a few years ago. (You can probably guess from that answer and the mug above that I Scooby a wee bit)

Toilet Paper - hard, soft, extra soft? Soft. If it's too soft it just doesn't seem to be as effective and if it's hard well, it's just too hard.

Have you ever rescued/taken in a stray animal? I had a kitten that we found at work. She was with me for about 2 years. After she had kittens and I gave them away, she ran away. About a month ago we came and there was a puppy sitting around outside our house. He didn't have any tags or a collar. He started following me so I picked him up and carried him in to our house (much to the dismay of my husband and 2 dogs, but to the delight of my daughter). It was getting ready to storm and I couldn't just leave him out there. My husband did find his owners and he is back with his family. We do occasionally see him around the neighborhood.

Name 3 things you want your kids to learn before they grow up. (if you don't have kids, feel free to skip this one or add your own twist to the question) 1 - How to save money, 2 - How to be happy with yourself, 3 - How to be content with what you have (avoiding the whole keeping up with the Jones' thing)

Pick one of the Thursday Thunk players and say something about them. So far this week no one has posted a response. I'm scheduling this to post in the wee hours of the morning Thursday. So I will have to come back and edit this to provide an answer to this one.

Edit to Add: Kimber's house sounds like I expect my house to be in a few years.

How can you not love Scooby.

Amber said...

it never occurred to me to choose someone from the show (other than Scooby) as a costume, what a great idea!
I have to agree, I think I recall smelling the glue more than eating (if I ever did) cause it smelled good
Happy Thursday
