Thursday Thunk: February 5, 2009

Welcome to another edition of Thursday Thunks, Kittens!

1. What is one of your favorite blogs to read? Why is it your favorite?
I love all the blogs I read, but Yaya Stuff is so compelling, so honest, and so real. Yaya doesn't pull any punches about her struggle with infertility, and she writes as if she's talking directly to you. I really, really, hope that she and her husband become parents soon. They would make an awesome mom and dad.

Not only that, but Yaya is a very loving person and always leaves comment love where she goes. She was one of my first followers, and through her blog, I've discovered other blogs that have become faves.

2. Have you ever been hunting?
No. I can't stand to see to see an animal die.

3. Do you live near any active volcanos?
Uhhh...I live in Connecticut. Does that answer your question?

4. If VH1 came out with a new reality show called Celebrity Anger Management, who would you most like to see on the show?
Christian Bale immediately pops to mind...and Gary Coleman...and Gary Busey...

5. Would you drink horse's milk if offered?
I'll stick to cow and soy milk, thank you very much.

6. Do you buy pickles? If so, what do you do with the juice after all the pickles are gone?
I don't like pickles. Do you think I would buy pickles if I did not like them?

7. Do you have a myspace or Facebook account?
I have one under my real name, not my blog pseudonym.

8. Facial hair on men, yea or nay?
Depends on the guy. Some men look really good with it, others should stay clean shaven. For example, President Obama and a beard? Nay. (Come to think of it, how many of our 21st century congressmen have facial hair?)

9. Do you know anyone personally who is stockpiling stuff for WWIII or a date they think will be the end of the world (i.e. 12/2012)?

10. Have you downloaded Skype and use it?
No. I have no one to use it with.

11. Have you ever been stuck by cacti?
Yes. I was stuck by an aloe plant with sharp spikes. I recently learned that aloe is a form of cactus.

12. Do you still have packed boxes from your last move you have yet to unpack? If so, how long have they been there?
I have been in my condo for almost six years. I would hope that I've unpacked everything!

13. Ever have a toxic friend you had to break ties with to save your sanity?
Oh God, yeah...several...quite a few, actually. There were a group of girls that I was friends with during my first three years of college, and when we were seniors, things fell apart. We tried to reconnect after graduation, but it wasn't meant to be.

Love the answers!! Have a great Thursday.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

I have not seen too many volcanoes here in Connecticut either... ;)

Carole said...

Here via NE Bloggers. Cute blog. I will be back!!


Dianne said...

I agree-you don't see much facial hair on public figures like politicians.

drollgirl said...

somebody needs to get on the vh1 celebrity anger management show!!! fantastic idea, and your pics would be great!

Anonymous said...

You think about interesting things. I'm with you on the facial hair. If it's there, I like it shadowy or scruffy. Full facial hair is a no-no on just about everybody. Horse's milk...why? Why even go there? ;)

Paula said...

I enjoyed your answers..have a good evening

Robin said...

You're right, Obama with a beard would be weird.

Have a great weekend.

Oh my gosh, you are far too kind. Thank you so much for the compliments! I had to go back and put you in my latest post for the shout out! You rock!

Toxic friends...yeah....guess they're everywhere, huh?

Yeah, I've got facebook under my 'real' name and ppl have still found me there....weird!

Jodi said...

I'm so with you on the hunting question. I don't know how anyone does it.

The facial hair question!! You are right.

Sorcerer said...

nice answers! :)

Vickie said...

Good post! I have boxes I haven't unpack from my last two moves. I am such the procrastinator. Bad, I am bad!

I love pickles!!! But, I dump out the juice. I did have an uncle who would drink it and leave the pickles in the jar. Bizarre man!

Yaya's blog is great!

Jenners said...

What a fun post! And what odd questions! Especially about the pickle juice. The thought of drinking pickle juice makes me want to throw up. I don't like pickles anyway.

And horse's milk? Ick.

And I love Yaya too. She is so incredibly open.
