Haven't Done This In A While

It's Thursday and time for The Thursday Three.

1) Name your THREE favorite candies you hope for when you go trick-or-treating.

Dots, Sour Worms and Gummy Bears

2) Name your THREE favorite things at state/county fairs (food or exhibits or rides or animals or animal food rides or whatever).

frozen bananas, lemonade, and onion rings

As this is my blog and so I can do four things, I'll also add that I love the section where they have all the free pencils, ballons and other things. I love collecting all that junk.

3) Which THREE songs you would download for a cell phone?

If I had a cell phone, I might download music for it, though I kind of hate the personalized music one hears blaring from every phone in town, but who knows when I'll ever make that technological leap anyway or how I'll feel about it by then. Perhaps I would get The Doors' "Hello, I Love You" or better yet Homer Simpson saying, "D'oh!" But I'd probably just want an old fashioned telephone ring.


Dots--I don't really like them, but I can't resist them.

Dots. The dentist's best friend.

If I set my mind to it, I can enjoy Dots and Jujubees without chewing. Drives my wife nuts if we're sharing a box of candy, since she's more into instant gratification when it comes to sweets.

I have my e-mail notification set up to a Homer "woo-hoo" every time I get a new message at work. It will sometimes get a quick look-around followed by a chuckle. I can't imagine the reaction to a series of "D'ohs!" or "Woo-hoo's!" for a cell phone ring.

Candy Corn
Reeses PB Cups

Cotton Candy
Trinkets (like feathery hair things and loooong earrings that my best friend and I used to get!)

Moon River
Rat in a Cage
Generic Oriental Movie Tune (that Hubby has now)

Is the instant gratification with hard candies a male/female thing? If I give my wife or female colleagues a piece of hard candy [the Baskin-Robbins sugar free is good], they all start crunching. The candy lasts about 10 seconds.

I don't know the answer Jim, but I am a cruncher, which kind of drives my husband nuts -- plus, as you can see, I really like the gummy sorts of candies better.

I never thought I'd want a personalized ring on my phone, but since I get so few calls on mine when I used a generic setting I would always assume it was someone else's phone and not even think to try to answer my calls until it had rung enough times for the caller to give up on me before I could pick it up. So I paid the big one dollar to Virgin to buy a "Lovely Rita" ringtone. My phone is pretty basic, so it's just the beeps that mostly sound like a song rather than a quick blare of radio-ready music. I picked "Lovely Rita" because it was pretty much the only song that I both liked and could recognize in its beeped version. But it works. As soon as I hear the Beatles beeping at me I go for my phone and catch the call.
