Enough of the Rain Already - Thursday Memes

Carmi's Thematic Photographic Meme asked for Green themed photos this week. Here is my green theme. Yeah, I know the song is lame but it was the first thing I thought of when I shot the picture.

Sometimes we get the sillies for no reason and sometimes it is because someone is tickling us with their foot on our belly.

1. Are your ears dirty? Ummmm no. Dirty ears = a ban on Q-tips and that is an absolute no-no in this house.

2. Would you rather be stung by a scorpion or bit by a snake? (Don't say one wants to be in pain, that's the point. Pick one.) I think I would rather be bitten by a scorpion. They are smaller and I wouldn't look like such an idiot for not seeing it near me.

3. Do loud noises make you snappish? (i.e. A loud restaurant, screaming child next to you, booming stereo from a neighbor's house?) Yes! I get a bit snappish if my daughter is screeching or if the radio is too loud. I hate dog barking and kid screaming more than anything else. More so if it isn't from my dog or child.

4. PETA- thoughts on this org.? I think some of them are too fanatical but that goes with anything. People are are TOO passionate can be dangerous.

5. Would you rather be the discoverer of the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot? (Imagination!) Nessie. I am very interested in her and if she exists or not. Is she just some big old viking ship that sometimes comes up or something. Running into Big Foot could be dangerous.

6. When in a public toilet and it's not flushed: do you flush & use or move on to a clean one? weren't kidding when you said this was the worst. Other people's shit is the grossest thing ever. I will not flush I will move on looking for a clean one!

7. Neighbors are having a noisy, party bonfire, what do you do? Curse under my breath for the majority of the night.

8. Do you play Monopoly? If so which version of the game? Nope. I haven't played in years. We have a Star Wars version that I gave my husband over 10 years ago. It was unopened until a few weeks ago but only to see if the figurines were safe to give to my 6 year old. He has a Star Wars thing going. They aren't safe enough (too small) so we didn't.

9. Are you a remote hog? No! There is never anything on TV. We don't ever fight over it because there are too many TV's in the house and neither of us watch these days.

10. Do you like the smell of paint? I don't think so. Maybe if it was picked with a heavy dose of chocolate or Carmel.

11. My questions obviously suck this week. {I've had a bad week.}
So do you think Kimber should have...
~smoked pot before doing these questions? No! I don't get the hype but I have never tried them.
~drank liquid courage? Nope! another thing I don't understand.
~begged Berleen to do them (she's better at them anyhow)? Sure, there that's the one.
~just piss off! I could have done better! Oh hell no. I hardly think I could have done better.

    Racio, Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.
