Thursday Thunk: New Year's 2009 edition

1. Would you rather have a pet hippo or a pet elephant?
A pet elephant. I could have him use his trunk to get things for me. At an even 5 feet, it's hard for me to reach things without a stool.

2. If locked in a cell and music blasted constantly 24/7, what would NOT drive you crazy that might annoy other inmates?
My dancing to the music.

3. If you see a penny on the ground, do you stop and pick it up?
Yep. Sometimes I keep it, sometimes I leave it for someone else to find.

4. Sea salt or table salt?
Sea salt. It's tastier.

5. Do you use bar soap or liquid soap?
I use liquid soap to wash my hands, and bar soap for everything else.

6. What/when was the worst travel experience of your life?
Two years ago, I was on crusing on the Voyager of the Seas with a friend of mine. My friend caught the norovirus and had to be confined to our windowless cabin for 48 hours. I had to be confined to 24 hours in the cabin as well. Not to mention, it rained nearly the whole time we were crusing. Saint Thomas was a washout, and we both missed San Juan due to illness.

7. You are at someone's house for dinner. It's an important dinner such as meeting the In Laws, with the boss or an important client. The food comes out and all homemade. You take the first bite and nearly puke into your plate. You're sure you'll end up with food poisoning. Do you eat it, pretend to eat and spit it into your napkin or some other clever way to get yourself out of eating it?
I eat it. Such a meeting is too important to mess up.

8. Do you watch any judge/court shows?
No. To me, there's something so wrong about airing one's dirty laundry in such a public fashion. Not to mention, it brings out the worst in people.

9. Is your nose pierced?
Nooooooooooooo!!! Too painful! That, and I blow my nose so much, I don't want to get infected.

That norovirus is a bitch. We had an outbreak at work this year. Sorry you had to go through that...

Oh, that cruise sounds horrible. Did you get any money refunded or an offer to come back some other time?

We did get a credit towards our next cruise, as well as free room service and an onboard credit for the one we were on. Alas, due to financial difficulties, I wasn't able to partake in any of these goodies. :(
