Thursday Thunks!

i just joined this group. i thought it was fun. the problem is, i can't see what the questions are in the draft. so you read and think about your answers would be while i figure out how to answer so i can see what i am typing. if you want to play, go here.

Welcome to the July 30th version of Thursday Thunks!
(which we always seem to post on Wednesday)
Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!
This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by
Kimber, the number 14 and the color of life. (2 questions by Ber, figure out which 2.)

1. You are in an enclosed space with a group of friends. Elevator, auto, small room, etc.. You fart and it really stinks. Do you take credit for it or do you play along with the questioning of who did it?
2. You are locked in a room sitting at a desk with just a piece of paper and a purple crayon. What do you draw?
3. Do you ever pee in the shower?
4. Have you bought, sold or got rid of something on Craigslist?
5. You are in a convenience store. In the line in front of you is adrunk guy trying to purchase more alcohol. The cashier tells him they cannot sell it to him because he is obviously already intoxicated. He gets belligerent. The cashier is scared. What do you do?
6. While shopping for produce, do you "sample" before you buy (i.e. grapes)?
7. You are walking down the street and there is a toddler sitting on a bench by themselves in front of a store - do you just keep walking?
8. Have you looked up an old friend and/or lover online?
9. You are nearly in a car/auto accident. Do you freak out, follow the person who nearly caused it & talk to them or just keep going?

1. are you kidding? i would look up at charlie with an accusing eye!
2. draw a purple horse, of course!
3. have done. but never in the bath tub!
4. no. i've never even visited.
5. hmmmm. he is probably between me and the door...i think i will find a place to hide! i'm too little to be very confrontational.
6. don't have to if you know how to pick em. with grapes you look for the greenest stems.
7. i think i have to talk to the kid and if i can't find a parent, i am calling 911. i will stay there until someone comes to be responsible.
8. i am as curious as the next person.
9. are you nuts! i'm in texas! people carry guns in their cars. no, i think i will concentrate on my know, getting it back to normal... and just continue on my way; thank you very kindly.



i've never tried to make it myself but susie shepherd has! she calls it "terribly inconvenient granola". (o, if you want to see cute critters and learn about her farm or you just like a good read, give her a visit...also if you like yarn stuff.) even if you don't want to try and make it, reading the recipe is just a whale of a lot of fun! just click on the title of the recipe and you're there!


now this is a wee alpaca over at jacob's reward farm. i just had to share this picture of him 'cause i think is such a cutie! you ought visit the farms some time and say hi to cindy. tell her what you think of one of her critters, mighty micha.
