Thursday Thunks - Kitchen Wonderland

Welcome to the July 15th edition 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!

Head over to Thursday Thunks and leave a link if you have written a Thursday Thunks post.
Don't forget to go visit the other participants' blogs.
Read and comment about all their Thursday Thunks responses!
That's what all this is about after all, isn't it?
We'll have so much fun and become lifelong friends....

The TT questions are brought to you by Bud, the color of Jupiter's third moon and the number 3,333,333.

1. Billy Mays died about a year ago. What kitchen gadgets have you bought that you've used less than three times? What are they?
Hmm...probably several, but I'm more likely to buy em at a home show, where I later discover that I am only inspired watching someone else using said tool. I have one of those super sharp mandolin cutting things I imagined I'd use all the time....I don't think I've used it yet. I also love my cookie press, but I think I've used that about three times.

2. What celebrity would you like to shake some sense into, and why?
I can't think of a stupid celebrity worth the effort.

3. Jimmy Buffett just did on concert to benefit the victims of the Gulf. Name a Buffett song that you like.
I think most of them are worth drinking to, but hubby hates em all, so I don't hear many all the way through.

4. How did you feel about Ringo Starr turned 70?
Didn't even know.

5. What sport do you absolute see no point in watching?
My first instinct is to say fishing, but I try to find the entertainment in whatever I'm forced to watch (and thinking of watching fishing reminds me of Brian Regan's skit on it, and that makes it amusing after all).

6. Trivia time. Do you know the first names of the French twins? Huh. I don't even have any idea who you're talking about.

7. You are in the best seafood restaurant in Canada. What type of meat do you order?
Possibly what the waiter or waitress recommends.

8. How far would an electric car have to go without a recharge before you'd buy one?
I like the car I've got, so a new one doesn't hold much appeal, whether or not it's electric.

9. Did you see that a high court ruled that you can swear on regular TV? What word can you just not wait to hear?
I wish the ruling had come in time for Jack Bauer to say something other than 'damnit' when everything goes wrong :D

10. You are in the finest steak and rib joint in Kimberville (Arizona). What seafood dish do you order?
I'm feeling pretty wishy-washy today. I'd probably ask the waiter or waitress again.

11. What was the last concert that you attended that really sucked? I don't go to many concerts, so luckily nothing comes to mind.

12. What type of accent would you like to have, if you were forced to change yours?
I don't have an accent - I'm from the midwest. ;)

13. Kimber's got four kids with chicken pox. Berleen is not feeling the love today, so I was asked to host. What do you miss most when neither originator of TT is asking the questions?
I don't have the attention span to participate regularly, so I don't really know the difference. :hide:

I used to not care for Buffett much. But then one particular album, Last Mango in Paris, had its lyrics catch my ear. He is a brilliant lyricist. The music is a bit repetitive, but I love his words. But, I understand your hubby's thoughts. Thanks for playing...

I've got the mandolin, too. We use it, but I want the new improved model that makes it a lot less likely that you'll slice the end of your finger off.

Bud's right...Buffet's music is all kind of the same, but the lyrics are great. He'd have been a better poet.

We moved to the midwest 5 years ago...they all loved my Lexington Ky/Cincinnati accent. I think they all have an accent here! lol In Chicago they all say beyyaakk! (for Back) or eeyaapple for Apple! lol

I use my little slicer thing for mushrooms, hard boiled eggs and strawberries, all the time.
