Toosdae ?'s



I know I just started a new job (and I'm still excited about it) but I'm extremely excited for this 4 day week to be over! Even though the weather looks evil right now, I'm still excited for my small vacation and looking forward to getting away...I hope you have a great Toosdae!


1. In your opinion, what is the worst sound in the world? If you need a little help, go here.

2. Tell me a story in one sentence.

3. Fireworks: Love them, hate them or somewhere in between?

1. There are a ton of horrible sounds, but I have to say that the sound of styrofoam rubbing against itself skeeves me out. A close second is the old standby-nails on a chalkboard.

2. I was surprised to see that it was a man in the car behind me because the hair was long and braided.

3. Somewhere in between. I really love going to fireworks when the weather isn't oppressively hot and humid or when I can spread a blanket on the grass and cuddle up with someone to watch them. But I hate the crowds associated with them and really-why do they have to be that loud?

1. Anything that comes out of The Whistler

2. The guy in the werewolf costume leapt out from behind a partition of the dark maze, scaring them so badly they turned and ran away.. straight into a wall.

3. I love 'em. My favorites are the big ones that spawn off little ones.. crackly crackle! I hear you about the crowds though, I don't even bother going to see the ones they put on downtown any more because it takes over an hour to get home afterwards.

1. The thud you hear in a car accident.

2. Bob knows that Jill like pie, so he gave her a big apple pie instead of an engagement ring when he proposed; he had her at "a la mode".

3. LOVE THEM!!! Especially if I'm stationed somewhere that I can see them being set off, and the *pft pft pft pft* when they come out of the tubes...

1. In your opinion, what is the worst sound in the world? I jump at just about every louder than normal sound. Right out of my skin. I would have to say the worst sound is a big bang in the middle of the night, one of these days I will have a heart attack.

2. Tell me a story in one sentence.
My heart was healed by a boy from my past who never forgot me.

3. Fireworks: Love them, hate them or somewhere in between? Love them. My b/f spends $800 or so to go in with the neighbors for their 4th cookout. Last year it lasted almost an hour, so AWESOME. Head to flickr and search for my tag FIREWORKS. LOVE THEM!!!!

George farted,and everyone darted.

I like the big ones at the races, but the everyday little ones that you spend all the money on. Lameo

broken hearted crying

the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog (sorry...no creatvity this morning...smile)

love them. there is something about looking up and watching them go from a small comet to a colorful starburst that enthrals me. I love when you are close enough that the explosion resonates in your chest.

Any one (or any animal) in pain.

2. Tell me a story in one sentence.

Once upon a time a woman married the man of her dreams, only he wasn't.


3. Fireworks: Love them, hate them or somewhere in between?

Somewhere in between: they are pretty, but dangerous and loud and expense. Not worth my money!

Happy Toosdae!!!

1. Shattering Bones

2. The big bad kitty found a mouse, he chased it and chased it until the mouse scurried into a whole that was too itty bitty for big bad kitty!

3. Somewhere in between. They're very pretty and I do enjoy watching them, but I don't feel strongly enough to use the word "love". Of course, I did live near Sea World for so long and got very used to seeing them every single night - that kinda took some of the magic out.

Claire said...

1. A Fly buzzing around when you are trying to sleep. This will drive me into a homicidal rage :)

2."I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die..."

3.Somewhere in between, they don't excite me but I don't hate them.

Desert Songbird said...

1. "Ewwww, Moooom! That looks gross - I'm not eating THAT!"

2. I was born, I lived life on the edge, and now I'm dying.

3. Somewhere in between - I hate fighting the crowds, but they are fun to watch.

Clancy in Idaho said...

1- A thud that I know is one of my children falling off of something and the screaming that inevitably follows.

2- Staring in wonder at Arizona's alien landscape of saguaros and cholla, I marvel at the naivety of my snug little Idaho world.

3- Love 'em! I didn't love them until I came to the place I live. We have the largest fireworks show west of the Mississippi. It is truly spectacular. They are launched on the banks of a big river and we sit right across the river from the launch site. I thrill with the thumping feeling that explodes through my body as each one is launched and then bursts into magical sparkles above me. It fills my whole vision and it is remarkable. It's also all synced up with music. This is an experience I look forward to every year.

1. A car yakking in the dark.

2. There once was a blogger who was going to write a one-sentence story, but then he read CallieAnn's and was too busy laughing.

3. I'm with you - somewhere in between. I like fireworks displays in the sky, but not the crowds. And I hate, hate, hate, living in urban areas where yokels set off fireworks.

Lois Grebowski said...

1. A loved one in respiratory distress
2. I did it.
3. like the pictures and the food, but not the sound.

Linda said...

1. Someone screaming at me on 911 and knowing that there is no way the ambulance is going to get there on time to help.

2. I once was lost but now am found.

3. I love fireworks and don't mind the sounds of them either. Matter of fact, watching them without the booms and bangs is just not the same!

crazy working mom said...

1. Hubby snoring when I'm trying to sleep!

2. This morning I woke up refreshed but now I am tired again.

3. I like to watch them, but my hubby is like a kid and he loves to shoot them and it scares me.

Catching up

1) vomiting

2) The world can be a better place if each of us just tries.

3) L-O-V-E 'EM

Marilyn said...

1. Crying dog.

2. I squeezed into a little Toyota with four Senegalese men to comb the Kansas countriside for a goat to barbeque on my birthday. (True story. Every word.)

3, Love the professional displays. Hate the doggie-terror inducing black cats and bottle rockets.

Travis said...

1. Fingernails on a chalkboard. GAH!!

2. The man paused to enjoy the last golden glow of what he intended to be his final sunset, but as the dusky light faded he changed his mind, threw the .44 Magnum over the cliff, and walked back into his life.

3. I enjoy a bright fireworks display, but I don't much care for personal fireworks.
