Thursday Thirteen 330: Good Humor Me

At a loss for time and ideas, I am borrowing again from a recent Sunday Stealing.

1. What’s your favorite frozen treat on a stick? Good Humor Chocolate Éclair bars.

2. When you passed notes during class in high school, who was most often the recipient? Angie and/or Suni in Mr. P’s class (True scenario— Annoying Male Classmate: Mr. P, they’re passing notes. Mr. P: As long as they’re paying attention…)

3. Who among your high school friends was the first to get his or her own car? I honestly can’t remember, but probably Angie.

4. Who is the black sheep in your family? That would be an aunt, cousin, and one of my sisters.

5. Who is the family historian? Me.

6. What was the last thing you sprayed from a spray bottle? Water

7. What was the last thing you sprayed from an aerosol can? Scrubbing Bubbles, to clean the thick layer of black scum one of my neighbors keeps leaving behind in the washing machine (not kidding). Sometimes it's more disgusting than others, and heaven forbid people actually clean up after themselves.

8. When did you last make reservations for something? I have reservations all the time, but I don't necessarily make them in advance. *G*

9. What’s your next upcoming appointment? Nothing in the near future, though I probably should make an eye appointment.

10. What store’s departure from your preferred shopping mall most saddened you? The bookstore. We lost at least half a dozen bookstores around the city in a short span of time.

11. What’s good to eat at your preferred shopping mall? Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream and Auntie Anne’s pretzels (unsalted, with cheese sauce - since they don't offer chocolate the way Hot Sam's used to).

12. What did you most recently purchase at an office supply store? A carton of invoices for work. Which reminds me, I need to order ink.

13. What did you most recently purchase at a book store? Is this a trick question? If you want to know the specific title(s), you should say so.

None of my high school friends had a car. We all rode bicycles everywhere.

These TT's are always so fun!


My TT is at

Heather said...

Alice: We all had bikes, too, but some of my friends got licenses and cars our junior or senior years.

Heather said...

Thanks, Paige!

I ADORE THE CHOCOLATE SHOPPE! Their Zanzibar Chocolate is sex on a stick. ON A STICK!


Happy Thursday!

Shelley Munro said...

I used to walk everywhere and catch the bus. Come to think of it, I still do! I sense a bit of a chocolate theme...

Colleen@Looseleafnotes said...

At first I thought that one question was who got the first cat! We still have an independent bookstore in town but I have also seen many in the region close.

Heather said...

Catherine: ROFLMBO! And yeah -- though not my favorite flavor, their Zanzibar Chocolate is pretty darn good. *VBG*

Heather said...

Shelley: As you know, I am also more of a walker and occasionally catch the bus. I really need to get my bike out (once the endless rain is done) and work to increase my knee strength and stamina. :-\

And really? You're surprised I should mention chocolate more than once? ☺

Heather said...

Colleen: LOL...that would be funny, considering some friends are dog people and have never (gasp) owned a cat. There are still a couple indy bookstores in town, but nowhere near what there were a decade ago. We've also lost a couple chain stores.

CountryDew said...

Love you answer about the reservations! And I miss the indie books stores, too.

Jennifer Leeland said...

This is awesome. The only place to buy new books within 300 miles of where I live is places like Walmart or the grocery store. We lost B&N and that was it. It's sad. These questions are pretty random. LOL!

Novroz said...

No high school students had a car at my time...even as teacher, I rarely see students driving a car to school

Heather said...

Anita: Thank you! *G*

Thanks, Jennifer! How sad that you have no bookstore, not even B&N. I'd hate to rely on Wal-Mart for books-their selection usually sucks.

Novroz: I think teens with cars is more usual in the USA, but not as much now as it was in the 70s and 80s. A lot of schools have done away with driver's ed classes, and it's gotten more expensive for kids to get their license. Not necessarily a bad thing, IMO.
