Thursday Thunks - Twilight, Emails, Being Nude and More Crazy Questions!

(click on link to go to the Thursday Thunks blog)

1.Recently Berleen and I discovered the allure of the Twilight series. Have you ever been sucked in to the latest "thing"? (Like Harry Potter, the movie Titanic, social networking, etc. etc. etc.)
My answer to this one is yes and no. Yes I can get sucked into some things, usually books (such as Twilight and Harry Potter). I can get sucked into some movies too, but not usually. Social networking...not so much. In fact, I joined twitter a couple months ago and haven't done anything with it in at least a month. Sorry to all those who have followed me! Social networking stuff I seem to join early on, not really get it or want to deal with it so i don't do anything, and then after awhile I'll get back into it. But...that's still rare for me. sure, I blog and I'm on facebook. But I don't twitter and I don't check myspace often at all. For a pc person..that could be seen as rather pathetic huh?

2. What software do you use for your email?
Gmail all the way baby! I love gmail. I don't like using something such as outlook or other programs that downloads the emails on my home pc, because I check my emails from lots of different locations. So for personal use it's best to just keep with a free email account that I can check online. For work, we use lotus notes. I like lotus notes but don't understand why we do it this way when we could be using outlook for free (since every pc has Microsoft office on it). But..oh well.....

3. Are you comfortable being nude?
Yes and no. When it's not winter time I like to sleep with litle clothes on. But I don't like to walk around the house nude or anything like that.

4. What is something you plan on doing this summer?
Hopefully I'll be able to use my pool alot, that's what I most look forward to.

5. Do you have a favorite movie/book quote? If so, what is it?
My current favorite book quote is what is in my heading - so check out my blog if you haven't in awhile. I'm not good at remembering movie lines, so none there.

6. How many email addresses do you have?
haha - good question. For personal use I have 3. I have my normal email address that most people use. I have one that I use for junk emails, such as filling out forms online etc. I have another that is some variation of my name and more professional sounding and that's what I have on my resume and I use when applying for jobs. Of course, I also have 1 work email address.

7. Is the sky falling?
I'm been so depressed lately that it sure feels like it.

8. Have you been to the Grand Canyon?
I did when I was much younger, I'm sure I'll see it again if I ever have a kid.

9. When was the last time you mailed a hand written letter?
I don't really mail letters, but I mail handmade cards several times a year. The last cards I mailed were in February. This weekend I'm planning to make happy spring cards to send to my grandparents.

I don't really "jump on the bandwagon" either unless its something I think I'll really enjoy. I discovered the Potter books right before they became really popular. Great thunks!

Kimber said...

That's exactly how I felt with #7! Great answers, thanks for playing. :)

Ladytink - I wish I could say that I read the first Potter books before they became popular, but I can't. I sooo wish I could have gone to a book signing.

Kimber - glad to know I'm not the only one who feels like the sky is falling, I sure hope we both start feeling happier/better soon.

I am glad to hear I am not the only one who is too antisocial for twitter :D

And nude in Denmark? - very rarely comfortable.

Dorte - I think there are still some of us out there who haven't done much with Twitter - it feels good to know I'm not alone.
