Thursday Thunks

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen, the color puke green and the number 12345.

1. You are walking down the road and you look down. There is a bug. Do you step on it? Not if I can help it. Sure, I kill bugs in my house and when gardening, but if they are just using the same sidewalk to take a stroll, I don't.

2. What is one fantasy that you want to come true more than any other? To own my own bookstore, selling mysteries only. I already have a name for it and everything.

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'll try to see if I can tell who it is by looking out the window, but I open it anyway. They can just as easily look inside the window and see me.

4. Have you ever eaten Play Doh? Not that I know of.

5. What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon as a child and why? Scooby Doo, if it was on Saturdays, we weren't allowed to really watch tv growing up.

6. Are you a "people watcher"? Absolutely!

7. I have a bowl of fruit. There are apples, oranges & pears. You help yourself to one - which one do you choose? Depending on the type of apples, it would be an apple. If it's a type I don't like, orange.

8. What is your biggest pet peeve in the blogging world? Having to enter word verifications for comments. Although one step up would be having to enter a word verification and then the owner still approves the message (what's the point of doing both?). I hate doing word verification. I would rather people just set their blogs to where they have to approve all comments instead.

9. What is one religion that you could just never see yourself joining? I don't do well with any and all organized religions – the religion itself doesn't matter (pssst – I have issues with authority). So I don't see myself ever joining one. I was raised with a specific religion but don't approve of a lot of things that come with that religion, so don't consider myself a part of it and stopped practicing it as soon as I moved out of my parents house.

10. What word do you use far too often? Fine, whatever. I know that's two words, but they go together.

11. How long do you spend in the shower? About 10-30 minutes, depends on if I have to wash my hair or shave – or both.

12. If you were to write a personal ad about yourself, what would it say? Why would I be writing a personal ad?

13. Your favorite flavor of soup is....? Tomato? Maybe? I don't really like soup.

14. You are sitting on a bench in the park and a bug walks in front of your feet.... do you squash him? Isn't this kinda like #1? I wouldn't squash the bug just for walking near me. If the bug tried to attach itself to me..that's a whole other story.

bermudaonion - Glad you enjoyed this! I would love to own my own bookstore, not sure it will ever happen, but it would be great.
