Thursday Thunks: April Fools, Non-Reality, Cracking Your Knuckles, And Other Off The Wall Questions

1. Did you play any April Fools jokes on anyone or have a joke played on you?

No, not my thing, and my kids know better.

2. If you could be on any non-reality TV show as a guest star or star, which one would it be and why?

A complete no-brainer for anyone who knows me--Lost--on the chance i might be able to do a hot scene with Sawyer (aka James), although i would gladly settle for Richard, Desmond, Sayid, John, Christian or Hurley. Even Ben. Just not Jack. Well, okay, even Jack.

3. Do you crack your knuckles?

No, and i do not want to even try. i don't even like it when people do it around me.

4. If you remember your first day of kindergarten, were you scared or excited? If you have kids or grandkids, were they scared or excited?

i was excited to finally be getting to go to school. i don't remember any of my kids being scared, so they must have been excited, too.

5. If you are in the shower, hear the fire alarm going off and smell smoke/see flames, will you just run out of the house with a towel on or grab some clothes & dress as you run out?

Since i'd be taking a shower, likely my robe would be nearby, so i would probably be able to grab that as i ran out of the bathroom to locate my children first and foremost. Only after i made sure they were out safely would i worry about how covered or uncovered i was. Hopefully a neighbor would bring me a blanket or something if i needed more covering.

6. Last week the Thursday Thunkers asked about your Daddy (twice), so this week tell us a little about your Mom.

She is dead, and she left a mystery behind. Because of that, i sometimes feel like i never really knew her, and that almost makes me sadder than the fact that she is gone.

7. Which search engine do you use most often?


8. Did you participate in Earth Hour?

No. i'm pretty sure i was watching Lost.

9. What was the last new-to-you movie you watched? Was it in the theater or on DVD? Was it good?

i think it was Hancock, and i saw it on DVD. i thought it was good. i really enjoyed it.

10. If you do something embarrassing, do you laugh it off, or sit & worry about it?

Oh, for heaven's sake, if you're living, you're going to end up doing embarrassing things, and you have to learn to laugh at yourself. What a waste of time it would be to sit and brood about such things. Not only do i laugh about it when i do embarrassing things, i even tell others about it so they can laugh, too.

11. Where is your favorite spot in your home to sit & relax?

It used to be a recliner in the sectional in the family room, but since i have been single it has been sitting on my bed. In thinking of the answer to this question, i was trying to figure out why i stopped sitting in that recliner and actually have had kind of an aversion to it. In fact, i even avoid going into that room. It finally hit me that that was where my abusive ex-husband last attacked me--cornered in that recliner. No wonder i've never sat in it again.
