Thursday Thunks - 2/19/09

1. What brand & flavor of toothpaste do you use?
My newest favorite is Melaleuca's Fresh Mint Toothpaste (it's in the shower). My other choices are Pepsodent (when I can find it) and Listerine Toothpaste (again hard to find).
2. What is your earliest memory?
I have lots of memories related to photographs. I'm not sure those are true memories or that I remember what people have told me about the photo. I do remember telling my first grade teacher that my mom had a baby boy that they named after my dad. The gig was up when she showed up at the house with a baby gift. I remember hiding under my desk because I knew I was in big trouble.
3. Hot Dogs or Hamburgers?
both - but I only eat high quality hot dogs anymore.
4. If you could bring any one famous person back to life, who would it be?
I don't know who exactly. I'd need to do some research. I'd find a contemporary person who people would listen to who I was pretty sure didn't recognize Jesus as the son of God and as Savior of the world. After being in hell, I'm sure he'd be very an excellent evangelist.
5. What is one thing we would always find in your fridge... what one thing would we never find?
Always... peanut butter. Never... severed heads.
6. Did you have to go and look for the answer of #1?
I had to google the name of the Maleleuca toothpaste.
7. Why don't watermelons grow on trees?
Can you imagine the mess from downed fruit?
8. What is something that you own that you should probably just throw in the trash, but you never will?
Super old tax returns
9. I push you into a room and lock the door. I leave you there for 6 hours. The walls are chalkboards and in the middle of the room there is a box of colored chalk. What will be written/drawn on the walls when I let you out?
All kinds of doodles, probably some Bible verses, likely a to do list.
10. When was the last time you changed the oil on your car?
Ask Surferman. I don't think it was very long ago. Surferman takes good care of my van.
11. In your extended family, who has been married the longest?
I think it's my parents. 42 years in October.
12. Name one thing that is so normal to you now that someone who was your age 50 years ago would think was abnormal.
Cell phones.
13. Have you ever wanted someone or something so bad that it hurt?
A baby. Grom was a miracle from God.
14. What do you dip your french fries in?
Ketchup. I like to dip them in ranch, but have decided that french fries are bad enough. At least with ketchup I get some lycopene.
15. What was the last picture that you took?
Grom and my dad have a disagreement about the surfboard rugs in the hall. My dad likes them turned at angles. Grom likes them straight. They have an odd day / even day arrangement for them to be straight or crooked. Here's Grom gloating that they are straight on a crooked day.
