Thursday Thunks: Welcome to Summertime 2010!

seen here.

The TT questions are brought to you by Bud, the color of Atlantic Ocean and the number 3.

1. It became officially summer on Monday. What’s your favorite part of winter?

2. What was your worst summer vacation ever?
gosh. hmmm. i don’t know that i can think of one?

3. Kimber’s husband just got the dream job that he’s hoped for. So a big shout out to her and Anthony! Tell us about the best job that you ever had.
yay, anthony. the best job i ever had was probably my first job, just because i was spoiled rotten by my coworkers! 😛 come on, a 16 year old, working with a bunch of 40-something year old men? i was the center of attention. 🙂 i also loved working with my coworkers. the job was eh, but i loved going to work. i also loved the job i had at university. it required many hours in the microfiche department of the library, doing research and transcribing. i LOVED it. i would love to be able to do something like that now. work in a library all day, inhaling the lovely smell of books and history around you? YES. awesome job.

4. Who is probably talking a load of crap about you right now?
oh, i can think of SEVERAL.

5. An alien appears and offers you the opportunity to repeat one year of your life. You will still know everything that you know now. He explains that no matter what you do differently, when you are returned to the present nothing will have changed. What year would you pick and why?
nothing will have changed? then why go back? hmmm. maybe when i was 24. i had just gotten my master’s, i was about to embark on a new career, and i was in love. i’d like to feel those euphorias again. although it would be a bitter crash when i return. 😥

6. Name three things you have on you at all times. Explain why.
a rubber band, because i get irritated with my hair every now and then. um. my phone, because it helps pass the time when i’m bored. and … clothes? because if i don’t, i’d be arrested, not to mention i’d be very lonely as everyone around me would flee in horror.

7. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?
i just wrote to one of my former students, wishing her a happy birthday. i mailed it just before her birthday, at the end of june.

8. If you could have everyone in the blogosphere read just one of your posts, which post would you pick and why?
oh, anyone. everyone would be tuned out by the second sentence anyway, so it doesn’t matter which post is picked.

9. I recently read that the music industry continues to decline at an alarming rate. In the last year it said the sales of Michael Jackson’s and The Beatles’ music are the only artists who sales continue to climb. The article stated that the two are holding up the industry. Have you bought a CD or mp3 of either artist recently?
i did buy a michael jackson song recently that i didn’t already have because my son requested it. i probably wouldn’t have normally, though. i did buy quite a few mp3s in the past year, but of all different artists.

10. What radio ad right now do you find so annoying that you’d rather have a tooth drilled than hear it again?
hmmm. i always change the channel at ads, so i don’t hear very much. and when i do hit that mark when ALL the radio stations are playing ads at the same time (usually 10 to the hour), then i just turn off the radio and listen to the phone. i would probably find any political ones annoying, though.

11. Berleen walks into a bar on a hot Minnesota day. At the bar sits a priest, a rabbi and a minister. A ten foot duck walks into the bar right after Berleen. What drink do you think Berleen orders?

12. There is a knock on your door. It can be anyone in the world. Who would you want it to be?
the publisher’s clearing house guy announcing that i won $100 million. 😀

13. What would be the worst entertainment or sporting that you could be forced to watch?
any kind of fighting or boxing. ick.
