Thursday Thunks - 2/26/09

Thursday Thunk is a blogging meme that gives you something to blog about. I joined to add to the biographical quality of my blog. Think of it as another way to get to know me.

1. What kind of dryer sheets do you use?

I don't use dryer sheets. Too many chemicals, the scent is too strong and I'm too cheap. I use white vinegar in the rinse cycle. If I want a little fragrance, a couple of drops of lavender essential oil on a washcloth gets tossed in the dryer.

2. How many times a week do you eat out/order in?
if you count all meals... 5 or 6 times. Recently though, Surferman keeps saying stuff like, "Dave Ramsey would eat at home." Sometimes I don't like Dave Ramsey. I think we'll be down to 2 or 3 times.

3. What did you do the night of your high school graduation?
They had a Grad Night at my High School... carnival rides, In'N'Out burgers, games, haircuts and more.

4. So Octomom is rumored to have been offered a million bucks to do a porno. Would you do it for a million?

5. If your child was born with an extra finger or toe, would you have it surgically removed?
Only if it was medically necessary. God knows every hair on our heads... I know He has a plan for every finger and toe too.

6. What was the last movie you saw?
Grand Torino. At the drive-in with Surferman. It was the 2nd feature.

7. I wanna buy you a dozen roses, what color should they be?
Orange, of course.

8. You are walking across the street, you are not quite half way when a speeding car comes... you have to run to get out of its way, which direction do you run?
To the nearest curb.

9. Tell us about a time when you were invited over somewhere and had the most awful time.
Can't think of a time to share with you all. My memory is bad that way. Bad experiences don't last very long unless it's with a business... then I can sure hold a grudge.

10. You open your front door and there is a box with a puppy in it... what do you do?
This is really unfair. What kind of a person would door bell ditch and leave a cute little puppy? Pets are great as long as they are someone else's. Don't throw tomatoes, but I'd probably take it to the Animal Shelter. Hopefully it would be adopted by someone who loved it and wanted a pet.

  1. Happy Thursday! What do you do to keep down static cling w/o fabric softener? Our house would light up like a match with all of the static if I didn't use dryer sheets. Not to mention pet hair issues.

  2. Oooh, I didn't know you could use vinegar that way, and what a great idea for essential oils!!
    I wanted to see Gran Torino as well, but never got around to it.
    Happy Thursday :o)

  3. @Karen When static is bad, I have a spray bottle with very dilute liquid fabric softener in it. Maybe 1:8 ratio. A spray of that on a wash cloth thrown in the dryer will kill the static. I also have a can of "Static Guard" from the dollar store for individual situations.

  4. In my house, I've threatened to bake a cake and celebrate Dave Ramsey's birthday.. and no one elses.. *giggle*

    It was nice to learn more about you.
