Thursday Thoughts

I've noticed a big spike recently in the number of hits I've been getting to this site, so let me explain Thursday Thoughts for those newbies. I write a series of questions; you answer them in the comments. Okay, I guess that wasn't that hard. Please comment. I love the comments. They're fun! Even if you just found this site from a search engine (and good gosh there are a lot of you out there hitting me through searches), participate!

Let's get it started!

1. If you could meet one famous person who would it be?

2. What is the worst date you've ever had?

3. If you were going to a deserted island and could only take three things with you, what would you take?

4. Who is the best looking guy and girl in Hollywood?

5. What did you have for dinner yesterday?

1. I can't think of anyone specific that stands out. Maybe other comments will spark an idea!

2. I've never really had a "worst" date that I can think of. I got stuck in a terrible traffic jam and was REALLY late when going to get my marriage license, does that count?

3. A piano, a bible, and I'd probably need some sunscreen.

4. I'm not sure if they're literally in Hollywood, but my picks are:

Girl: Shakira (Actually in Miami, I think)
Guy: John "Jim Halpert" Krasinski (Actually in...Scranton?)

5. Tacos with our yummy beef/bean/sour cream/taco sauce/cheese dip!

These are hard questions today!

1. Haven't I already mentioned my love for Andre Agassi?

2. I had this crush on a guy in college who I had class with and with whom I occassionally studied. One day he asked me to have pizza with him and I was totally psyched. But when we met for dinner he spent the whole time talking about his girlfriend. I was on a date with a guy who had a date!

3. I concur with Dave about the sunscreen. I think I'd also want to take a hair tie and some face soap. I'm so vain!

4. John Krasinski is a good choice. HOT! Tom Cavanaugh. HOT! Harry Connick, Jr. HOT! Andre Agassi. HOT! Goran Visnjic. HOT! Andy Roddick. HOT! Nick Lachey. HOT!
I think I need a cold glass of water. :)

5. I had the same thing as Dave! Soft tacos, Tostitos with cheesey refried bean dip, and a margarita.

1.One famous person, hmm, this is harder than it should be. I have no real desire to meet anyone famous, but today I think I’d like to meet Robin Williams – if only because I am moody and could use a pick-me-up.

2.I got stood up once in college, that was the worst.

3.Water filter, matches, and a solar powered, weather-proof laptop with satellite internet that works (this is fantasy right?).

4. guy – I have a total crush on Owen Wilson, so I’ll go with him. girl – Hmm, I guess I’d have to say Angelina Jolie.

5.Penne pasta with zucchini and tomato sauce, & a salad. (most veggies fresh from our garden - yum!)

1. thomas jefferson

2. can't remember her name, but she claimed she was an avid mt. biker, so i took her on some easy, local trails. turns out she'd never been off-road. and she freaked out when the tarantulas came out on the trail near dusk. never called her back.

3. smsmh, some way to connect to the internet, camera

4. i like ashley judd and john stewart

5. jalapeno cornbread and chili, w/ spinach salad


Dave said...

Meredith, you didn't have a girl for question 4!

And Jeff, remind me not to go biking with you at dusk. :)

1. that is hard--I guess someone really brilliant in the field of religion or politics just so I could pick his or her brain.

2. well, I've had 2 that are about equal, both sort of blind dates. One was a double date, where I knew the other couple very well, and my date, although we tried to include him, just wasn't part of the conversation. The other one was supposed to be a double date, but the mutual friend had a family emergency--her grandma died or something--although I never found out if that was really true . . . anyway, we had nothing in common and I was back home before 9 PM I think.

3. do people count? If so, my husband and kids.

4. guys--can't pick just one--Will Smith, Matt Damon, Nick Lachey.
girls--when she was younger, Isabella Rosellini, or now, probably Angelina Jolie.

5. Baked Parmesan-Dijon chicken and mashed potatoes--yummy!

Val said...

1. Noah. How DID he do it on the boat w/ all those animals for over a month and not go crazy!?

2. Caught by the police necking in my date's sister's car w/ out of state plates in an abandoned area. Yeah. And had no ID on me...

3. The cast from Lost, of course! O=) That's one thing. Ha. And Captain Jack Sparrow, that's two things. Muahaha. Annndddddd all my girlfriends. Whoohoo! Party on!

4. Orlando Bloom <3 <3 <3 and Sandra Bullock

5. Grilled Chicken Salad from Cracker Barrel & their potato soup. Yum!

Michelle said...

Hey Val, I don't think I've ever heard anyone my age use the term "necking" before. that's too funny!

Dave said...

Maybe she was hoping Scott didn't know the term. ;)

desiree said...

1. Dead or Alive? Dead: Douglas Adams the Author. Alive: Eddie Izzard.

2. The date where the creep was showing me pictures of his cat and surprise! Mixed in were pictures of his erect organ. Many pictures. Oops! How did those get in there? Not impressive.

3. The Hitchiker's trilogy, sunscreen and a knife

4. No clue

5. A bottle of cheap wine and some peanuts

Pat said...

1. Jesus

2. It's been too long....

3. Am I stranded or can I take a return ticket on the next ship passing by? I'm hoping the island has trees! I'd take a laptop with satellite internet connetion for my info needs, book downloads and e-mail, a large case of freeze dried foods and something to remove salt from the water.

4. ???

5. Greek salad.
