Thursday Thoughts

Hey! Hey! You know the drill. I ask the questions; you provide the answers. Let's get started.

1. What is one goal you'd still like to accomplish?

2. What has been your biggest accomplishment to date?

3. What is one memory you have of the Fourth of July? (And if you're not from America, pick a holiday native to your country.)

4. What is your favorite candy bar?

5. Have you ever been in a musical or play? If yes, what play/musical and what role did you have?

1. I'd like to finish an Ironman someday.

2. Getting my degree in engineering was a big accomplishment, but so was qualifying for the Boston Marathon in the Boston Marathon. I don't know? It's a toss-up.

3. It's not a good Fourth of July memory, but I was at Red, White, and Boom downtown one year and I saw a person get stabbed. I was only a kid; it was traumatic.

4. I LOVED candy bars. I like Milky Ways and One Hundred Grands. Basically anything that has carmel and chocolate.

5. I was in a one act play in high school called "A Mixed Bag" and I played the lead role of a British doctor. I'm terrible at memorization and it didn't go so well with the accent. I've always wanted to try out for a musical, though.

desiree said...

1. Become rich enough to help my family out

2. I don't know. I'm proud that I gave brilliantly funny speeches at both of my graduations and wrote another great speech for a different graduation. Does that count? That I don't hate public speaking?

3. Ditching my drunk ass boyfriend at the time to go to an olive garden 1 1/2 hours away with an ex boyfriend and my best friend

4. I think I like reeses peanut butter cups best

5. Dozens. Mostly leads. Name one. I bet I was in it.

Dave said...

1. Travel overseas.

2. Not sure...I suppose getting my degrees.

3. Lying on the grass watching fireworks.

4. Mounds

5. Yes, I was in "Guys and Dolls" and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" in high school as Angie the Ox and Zebulun, respectively. I also played Job in "Out of the Whirlwind" in college.

Michelle said...

1. Wow--I'm really not sure. Since I'm a stay at home mom now, I guess it would be to raise my children well.

2. toss-up for me, too: earning my Master's degree and giving birth without using any pain medications.

3. going to the fireworks display with friends and sprawling out on the ground on a blanket.

4. mmm . . . dark chocolate Milky Way. well, anything dark chocolate, really.

5. I was in a lot of church musicals when I was younger--mostly chorus (a bunny on Noah's Ark or an angel or something like that.) I played in the orchestra for them in high school and our community theatre. That was better--fewer rehearsals, no memoriaztion, and almost always had some solos!

Nic said...

1) Qualify for Boston (surprise?)
2) Moving to San Francisco without knowing anyone here.
3) This year - I broke my pinky finger playing kickball. I know, you use your feet when playing kickball. But not when you're trying to catch the damn thing!
4) Snickers
5) I was Patty in You're a Good Man Charlie Brown. Similarly, my dance studio did ballets and I was Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, Wendy in Peter Pan, Beast in Beauty and the Beast (how much does that suck?), Tom in Babes in Toyland... I could go on, but you probably get the drift!

Val said...

1. I'd like to have a job someday. I think I'd like to substitute every day. Not in the same room, but just to work every day for a whole school year =)

2. Giving birth twice has definitely been my biggest accomplishments. Holy cow is that hard work!

3. We used to go to Conneaut Lake Park in PA for fireworks because my grandparents lived right in town there. I can remember loving the fireworks because they shot them up from the lake... and you'd watch them from by the Paratrooper and the Sea Dragon, two of my favorite rides. I used to get SO annoyed w/ my brother when he was small because he was afraid of all the noise and I loved it!

4. Used to be Milky Ways, then 3 Musketeers, and now, who am I kidding, anything that comes into this house that is candy I will eat!

5. In 5th & 6th grade gifted class we wrote our own plays & put them on. In church choir as kids we did various musicals. Loved them all!
