Thursday Thunks: April 22, 2010

I haven't thunked in awhile now. I thought tonight would be good to get back into the swing of things, particularly blogging.

My oldest demon (aka Demon #1) is in Oklahoma! The musical this weekend. Yep, my kid is a drama geek. Have you ever been in a play or musical? Were you in the drama club in high school?
I was in the drama club in middle school, but not high school. Back in middle school we did musicals that were expressly written for the middle school stage; we never did traditional ones like Oklahoma.

Of course, the year after I graduated, Sister Kitten's class did the HMS Pinafore. Go fig.

You are walking down the road and the cops fly by you and stop at the house just a little ways down the street. It's the way you were going to go... do you take a detour to avoid it or do you just keep walking because, hey - you had the idea first! or do you walk by out of complete curiosity?
I take a detour, because, with my luck, I'd be called as a witness to the crime. And Lord knows what's going on there...

I drop a green crayon from the roof and Kimber drops a yellow one - which one will grow wings and fly before it hits the ground?
The yellow one...I've never seen a green bird.

What is the first section of the grocery store you go to? And I know that sentence doesn't sound right, but I don't care.
The pasta and cereal aisles. I save the refrigerated stuff and the produce for last, so they won't have time in my cart to spoil.

Do you like questions that have a yes or no answer or do you like to actually think for yourself and come up with something original?
Depends on the degree of laziness I'm feeling at the moment.

The wall directly in front of you... whats on it?
Blue paint.

Sea salt?
No salt. High blood pressure runs in the family.

420. You know what it is. It's a time, it's a day, it's a way of life. Did you celebrate yesterday?
Noooo...but does anyone else find it ironic that one's Facebook status is limited to 420 characters?

Can you read a tape measure?
In inches or centimeters?

The city/town/village that you live in... it's population is.....????
45,000--or one Dunkin' Donuts for every 9,000 residents.

If a laptop fell out of the sky do you think you could catch it? And if you did, do you think it's Finders Keepers?
If it's a Macbook pro, hells yeah. And yes, I'd keep it. If it's a Dell, I'd let someone else catch it.

Driving down the highway, driving down the interstate, driving down a dirt road that you are sure goes absolutely nowhere... whats the longest distance you have ever driven in one trip?
1,000 miles, driving one way from Cleveland, Ohio, to Hartford, Connecticut.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
Let's ask Mr. Owl:

(And according to YouTube, that was the ORIGINAL commercial!!!)

Gee thanks, that first question I think explains my lifelong shyness and social anxiety. I was the lead in a bunch of plays when I was a little kid, hung myself out there... and then I changed schools 2-3 times in just a couple of years, and never got my confidence back.

I want to meet the person who's made it to the tootsie roll center without biting!
