Thursday Thunks

1. What is your favorite type of soda (if you drink soda)?

Diet Dr. Pepper. It used to be Diet Coke, but for some reason i gravitated to Dr. Pepper. Even if sugar is not a concern, i still like the taste of diet sodas better than the regular ones.

2. Do you believe in astrology? If so, what does your sign say about you?

No, not at all.

3. Who is John Galt?

A character in Atlas Shrugged. (Okay, i confess i googled it.)

4. What is the last thing you do before you go to sleep at night?

Read until the book falls onto my face.

5. Who's your Daddy?

my Sir, also known on this blog as A.

6. Jelly beans or Jelly Bellies?

Without a doubt Jelly Bellies!

7. What do you think about yellow cars? Why do car manufacturer actually make yellow cars?

Yellow is not a color i would choose for a car. i'm guessing that the manufacturers make them because somebody buys them. i do see them on the road, so someone must like them enough to buy them. Also, i would never choose one of those cars that looks like a box or a toaster. As baffled as i am that someone actually came up with that design, i'm even more baffled that people buy them.

8. Holding on or Letting go?

Depends upon what it is you're contemplating holding on to or letting go of. If you're dangling from a rope over a deep chasm, i would advise holding on. If you're trying to hold on to someone who wants to leave, i'd advise letting go.

9. What kind of underwear, if any, do you wear?

Panties, unless i'm just staying home, in which case i usually don't wear any underthings.

10. Who is your daddy and what does he do?

i thought we already had the Who's Your Daddy? question! mine encourages me, holds me accountable, explains things to me that i don't understand, admires my tits and my smile, turns me on, reassures me, inspires me, motivates me, excites me and, oh yeah, he has a day job, too.

11. Spring - is it here yet??

i suppose it is, although it is not as warm as i would like it to be.

12. Does Google Streetview scare you?

No, my house doesn't show up on that.

13. What is your favorite brand of ice cream?

Ben & Jerry's.

14. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie.

15. Do you ever get tired of your everyday routine?

Every day.

16. What inspires you?

Strong and courageous people.

17. It’s springtime-do you spend more time outdoors?

Yes, it is much more pleasant now. Just looking out the window makes me want to go outside. i hate that i have to be stuck inside so much.

18. When do you think Bud will let us see the DVD of him and the french twins?

Is there a pool for this, and what is the prize? Put me down for 30 days from now.

19. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you, and why?

That is a tough one. Where i live is not nearly as important as with whom i live. Of the places i have lived so far, i enjoyed the California coast the most. i loved having the beach only a short walk away. There are places i would like to visit, but until i visit them, it would be difficult to know whether i'd want to actually live there or not. Again, for me people are more important than places.

20. Why do you blog?

i thought it would be a nice way to say what's on my mind, but i haven't had much time for that, so i've mostly been doing memes, which i think are fun. i also like reading other people's answers to the same meme, and i really enjoy reading other people's blogs.

21. What are electrolytes and why are they good for us?

Electrolytes enable the basic metabolic function of the body and include sodium, potassium, chloride and bicarbonate. For proper functioning, they need to be in balance. If you ever have blood work done, nearly always these levels are checked. (i did not need to google this; i actually knew this.)

22. Do you twitter? Why or why not?

Yes, i do twitter, and i do so because it can be a lot of fun plus it is so convenient. i wish everyone i knew would get on Twitter so that i could quickly and easily message anybody and everybody whenever i had an inkling to.

23. What did you dream last night?

All i remember is a big leather-covered steamer trunk and a map of Argentina.

24. What is the strangest thing you've eaten?

i have managed to avoid eating strange things for 50 years. i cannot think of anything out of the ordinary that i have ever eaten. i won't even eat mushrooms.

25. What was the last picture that you took?

Pictures of my bedroom for Sir. i was required to take 'before' pictures, then clean the room and then take 'after' pictures.

26. What is your favorite part of spring?

Daffodils. i've always loved daffodils. (Yellow is a good color for flowers, if not for cars.) i actually crocheted an afghan with three-dimensional daffodils on a green background.

27. What is one thing that you did this past week that no one knows about?

Oh gosh, i NEVER have that much privacy! Someone always knows what i'm doing. Plus, i routinely self-disclose on Twitter.

28. What kind of bandages do you typically have in your household?

Band-Aids, gauze, bandage tape.


  1. Interesting answers! Have a great day.

  2. 30days from now. Got it. You're in the pool...
