Day 145 - Thursday Thunks [2]

Welcome to the April 30th version of Thursday Thunks!
Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!

We pick a subject, and your job is to interpret it anyway you want. Write about it on your blog... simple as that. Maybe you can interpret it as a picture - we don't care!Please only leave a link if you have written a Thursday Thunks post. Please mention us in your post, and link back to the blog here.Don't forget to go visit the other participants' blogs. Read and comment about all their Thursday Thunks! That's what all this is about after all, isn't it? We'll have so much fun and become lifelong friends....

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen & Kimber via phone & Skype conference, the color mango and the number 70566.

1. What color is your front door?

It's blue!

2. We discussed our folks in previous TT so now tell me about your siblings. If you are an only child, tell me whether or not you wanted siblings, older, younger etc.

I have two sisters. An older and a younger one. My older sister is in her thirties and she has two kids (boy & girl). Her and her family live in California and I'm afraid we don't talk much.

My younger sister lives with my mother and I, along with her 18-month-old daughter (who I love more than anything).

I did have another sister and I really love telling this story. I was born September 15, 1987. My sister, Nina, was born September 14, 1988. She unfortunately died a few weeks after birth. I find myself imagining what life would have been like growing up with another younger sister. And what fun our birthdays would have been. I wish I had gotten the chance to know her.

3. What color/type butterfly is your favorite?

Oh I don't know!! Let me google some pictures and pic a fave... One moment please...

I do think all butterflies (and even moths) are beautiful!! This one however, lives in South Africa and I searched the webpage I found it on but couldn't find it's name.

4. Will you be celebrating Cinco De Mayo?

Probably not.

5. Oprah- love her, hate her, or don't care?

Honestly?... I don't care.

6. Are you worried about the spread of swine flu?

Yes and no. Yes - because this could be a terrible and scary thing if it does spread. I don't really want to think about it. My ex-boyfriend has family in Mexico and he plans on visiting in a few weeks but he's slowly changing his mind. I don't want him to go.

And no - I guess because it hasn't hit close to home yet so it's still "out there" to me.

7. Hard or soft pillows?

I like mine to be in the middle - really soft pillows suck. So I do lean more towards the softer side of things but throw in a bit o' firmness please.

8. How many trees are in your neighbor's yard?

Front or back? And left or right neighbor? Come on now, gotta be specific!!

9. What was the color of the last car you saw?

It was red.

10. When does your driver's license expire?

Let's check shall we? Exp: 9-15-2012 (My 25 birthday - eesh!)

11. Look at the clock on your computer and type the numbers backwards.


12. When you put your pants on, what leg do you put in first?

I never really paid attention. I want to say right since that's my dominant side but I know I've gone with my left first before.

13. How would you respond to this letter if you were an advice columnist.
I am an ugly woman. I was an ugly baby and child even! It is a fact. I am 36 now and I have never had a boyfriend, and I am still a virgin.

Due to me not having men in my life, I have poured everything I have in to education and my career. At 36 I am the youngest (and first female CEO) at a big, successful, tech company. I have over 200 personal patents and millions of pounds in investments.

I have everything: huge house, holiday villa in Spain, 3 cars, power boat, a race horse, etc. But as much I try to talk myself into everything being “great” I cannot help but to miss that special someone to share it all with.

Most of my friends are married with kids and I feel like I am gradually drifting away from them also.Where can I find someone to marry an ugly woman?

Wow...umm hmm let's see:

First off, congratulations on all of your accompishments! You are way ahead of the game and you definitely deserve a pat on the back. But I must say you're negative attitude towards yourself can radiate off you and keep others away. I don't mean to sound corny, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have seen some "not so pretty" people that have significant others. So I'm thinking maybe if you start telling yourself you're not ugly and start liking yourself than that will so.

Otherwise you can always adopt =D

Great answers...Happy Thursday!

I hope you don't mind my saying (seems I've made more comments about adoption on the TT this week than anything) this but adoption isn't really something to be taken so lightly..even as a joke. I'm an adoptee..and adoption sucks...plain and simple.

I hope you aren't offended by me saying that...I just had to get it out.

Mishel said...

Not at all. I'm sorry I offended you with my comment. I do know that adoption can be a real blessing for some people. I'm sorry your experience with it is bad. I don't have any personal involvement with it so maybe I should just zip my lips.

Happy Thursday to you too! && sorry again >_<

I'm sorry I used your blog as my ranting're not the only one tonight, so don't fret :)

Adoption CAN be a blessing...but quite a few adoptees I know disagree. That's all I was trying to say.

Again, sorry for being snarky..

Mishel said...

Don't stress it. I totally don't mind. Feel free to rant all you want =D

I read your answers about your siblings and I was very happy to hear that you are in contact with your natural siblings and that you all get along (even if your nbrother is a wee bit cautious).

My reunion has been a wonderful experience...albeit a bit shocking ;)
