Thursday Thunks

Here's my very first ever Thursday Thunks:

1. You are walking down the road and you look down. There is a bug. Do you step on it?
No. I only kill bugs if they're in my house - not when I'm in theirs.

2. What is one fantasy that you want to come true more than any other?
This isn't as easy to answer as it seems. If I say I want to win the lottery and I don't say I want world peace, am I selfish or just honest?

3. Someone knocks on your door. Do you look out the window to see who it is before you open it? Do you open it regardless of who it is?
I look out my peephole before opening it and if I don't know them, I don't open it at all. I talk through the door. You wouldn't believe how much this offends some people!

4. Have you ever eaten Play Doh?
Yes, when I was a child. It's salty.

5. What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon as a child and why?
I loved the Schoolhouse Rock songs in between the shows! I am a nerd.

6. Are you a "people watcher"?
Yes, most definitely. I am never bored in a crowd. I love to people watch in large cities, especially.

7. I have a bowl of fruit. There are apples, oranges & pears. You help yourself to one - which one do you choose?
The pear, because I always buy apples, and oranges require a hand wash after peeling.

8. What is your biggest pet peeve in the blogging world?
I'm not a fan of music that automatically plays on people's blogs; don't mind it being available to click and listen it if I want to.

9. What is one religion that you could just never see yourself joining?
There are many. I'd have to say Jehovah's Witness.

10. What word do you use far too often?
I have to pick just one? I think it's "would." As in, "Honey, would you please pick up your socks" and "Would you please do your homework" and "Would you stop throwing the ball in the house!" You get the idea.

11. How long do you spend in the shower?
Not as long as I'd like to! I've always lived where there are droughts.

12. If you were to write a personal ad about yourself, what would it say?
Married, not looking, seeks friend to prowl thrift and antique stores with on a moment's notice. Of appropriate age to receive senior discount a plus.

13. Your favorite flavor of soup is....?
Minestrone. Fresh tomato. Fresh broccoli. I'm a real soup lover.

14. You are sitting on a bench in the park and a bug walks in front of your feet.... do you squash him?
No. (See #1.)

#8 I completely agree. When someone's favorite music starts blaring at me from a webpage where the pause button is hidden w a y at the bottom of the page, it makes me want to hunt them down.
