Thursday Thunks: February 12, 2009

Welcome, Kittens, to another edition of Thursday Thunks!

If you want to play along, click here!

1. You are driving down the road and there is a puddle in the road. A big puddle. Not one that will really wreck your car or anything, but a big puddle. There is no other cars in front of you or behind you - do you drive through the puddle or drive around it?
I drive right through it! I love the splash and the sound that the water makes!

2. Go to Google Images, type in any word that comes to mind and post the 1st picture you see.
I typed in "clean", because that's what I've been doing tonight, and here's what came up:

3. A college calls you up and says that you have been selected to take get any degree that you want on their dollar.... what do you choose?
I'd choose finance, because it would really help me during these tough economic times.

4. Are you blogging on a laptop or desktop?
A desktop, sadly. One of my goals in the next two years is to purchase a laptop.

5. Which store, excluding a grocery store, do you shop at most often?
Target. And it's pronounced the French way: Tar-zjay!

6. My daughters tried out for the school musical last night. Were you ever in a school play/musical? Which one?
I had a lead in the school play when I was in the 8th grade. It was one of those plays especially written for middle school. It was called How the West Was Really Won. The following year, when Sister Kitten was in middle school, they did H.M.S. Pinafore. Go fig.

7. I read yesterday that a school PTA group wants to try to ban white bread, cakes, brownies or any other "treat" from their lunch menus... plus make kids' lunchboxes brought from home not include any "junk food". Thoughts on that one?
I'm all for banning the simple sugars and carbs from school menus. However, there are families out there who can't afford to buy the better foods that should go in their kids' lunches. There's no way that a school can have so much control over the bagged lunches, not to mention, how much effort would go into policing and disciplining those who do bring in the junk.

8. How many people can your kitchen table seat?
Seating for six, non-smoking. My kitchen table's not in my kitchen; it's in a little area at the top of the stairs. If you move it in the middle of the living room, there's plenty of seating for six.

9. What time is it right now?
Il est cinq heures moins neuf maintenant. Or, if you prefer Spanish, son las cinco menos nueve.

10. Walk out the front door of your house/apartment, turn right, walk 2 blocks. What do you see?
I'm at the intersection with the A&P/Staples shopping plaza on my left, with the Home Depot shopping plaza on my right. There's a traffic light at that intersection.

That's it for this Thursday! Make it a good one, Kittens!

I love Target too!

Janna said...

I totally call Target - Tarjay as well. We sometimes talk about eating at the Tarjay Cafe. It sounds a little fancier than it is!

Tiffany said...

That was a cool meme. Loved reading your answers.

Jenners said...

These were fun questions!

We do the proper Target pronunciation too -- even my 4-year-old uses it!

Love that you can walk to stores from your home! Wish I could do that!

Love driving through big puddles.

Love the little picture.

I might have to do this sometime ... well, some of the questions.

Target - YES!!! Who would drive around a puddle? It's fun to see the splash! And, that PTA thing? wow! I don't even have words for that!
