1. Never, long term, at once short term. It somehow goes from short term to long term, and Is pretty much permanent.

2. Never got into comics.

3. Your not going to believe this, but a Keurig Coffee Maker. FULL size. A card came In the mail, and said sign up for e-mail survey's on Keurig, and the Coffee Maker Is yours free. I came In like 3 days. My daughter got the same card, and the same thing happened?

4. Married with children. Music started It's decline. Ronald Reagan ruined the country.

1) How often do you forget things?
I'm not sure and do not really remember. I guess the LAST TIME was when the doctor told me I had dementia. I just went home and forgot about it.

2) When comic strip do you like to read?
I never really understand any of them. I like the color in the pictures of Marmaduke, tho.

3) What was the last thing you got for free?
I get freebie stuff EVERY DAY from my Sidekick. A HUGE dry ice cooler?
Yup! Now I have to start buying dry ice....but his thing is so big it would make some awesome smoke to trick the Fire Dept if I put it in my front doorway.

4) What event do you think signifies (or you identify with) the '80's?
I became an official shut in, and left the house only to give birth
yet another time. But I played with Cabbage Patch Dolls and helped my son remove all the stickers and replace them, so the Rubicks cube was finally solved!

jed said...

OK I'll play...

1. I have an excellent's just kinda short.
2. I have not looked at comics for years, the last time was when you could take out the silly putty and xerox the comic with it, that was so cool. I don't think I read the comic either.
3. I've always asked the question, Why is there air? So I agree with SER.
4. That was a long time ago...All I can remember is sitting on my waterbed, playing my Rubiks cube watching MacGyver wearing my parachute pants and "members only" jacket while listing to AC/DC " You shook me all night long" on my Walkman cassette tape and dreaming of mini skirts. That's about all I can remember.

Thanks Drew, you're the best.

Tender Heart Bear said...

1) Every once in awhile!

2) I really don't but I use to read the Peanuts!

3) Dinner on my mom when they come down to Milwaukee!

4) Graduating High School and then getting married. The second one I really don't want to remember. Also I had my two older kids my son in '86 and my older daughter in '89 and today is her birthday!

I hope you have a great weekend!

By the way TOAD... I love my Keurig.
I got it last Christmas from my son and he paid full price! You are one Lucky Dawg!

legal stranger said...

1. RAM (Random access memory), when I need to recall, ,I have to forget about it before I remember it
2. Of course "Crankshaft" and Flesh Gordon
3. Free always has a price
4. Toad has it right with "Married with Children" Al Bundy was phenomenal, but also remember loyalty to party before country is destroying our great nation, that goes for both the Damnocraps and Repulsicans.....Please think sheeple before you vote.

Toad said...

Anon, As Craig Ferguson would say "I KNOW", but It's true. I have yet to even get an e-mail for a survey. Crazy huh?

Toad said...

BLB, About the Keurig. The one I had was the original one, and made lots of noise, so I gave It to my Grandaughter for College, and bought a Cuisinart pod brewer cheap, on Brads deals. It's real quiet, and has a huge tank, but Keurig still makes better coffee, so I guess I will take It out of It's box, and give It a try. I tried my daughters, and It's a little quieter, but not nearly as quiet as the Cuisinart. I still can't figure out why they gave them away. The add said ONLY IN WI, and NC, was the coupon valid? Crazy, they are $150.00 at Came A Part right now.

1) How come it's when I can remember some bird or tune name and forget some appointment I made? Clueless.

2) Always read the comics in the paper when I was a kid. Loved Bloom County.

3) A birding scope, from a catalog I received for 25 years of employment at my work.

4) Graduated from high school. Life was a party, party, party. I didn't care for the new wave glam scene and somehow got stuck in the '70's time warp with a Bon Jovi hairdo.

1. Sometimes I forget to put makeup on in the morning, woooooo when I carch a glance of myself.
2. Peanuts
3. A wink , then hotel vouchers lol
4. ..................................

OrbsCorbs said...

1) As often as necessary.

2) I read most of them. (Sometimes Marmaduke doesn't even make sense.) In college, I loved the underground comix.

3) I recently received two months free internet service from Time Warner Cable because of terrible service in the past.

4) Al Bundy, Al Bundy! The 2nd half of the 80's was when my careers took off: alcoholic and coke addict. I crashed and burned with the end of the decade.

1. Who are you and what was the question?
2. Crankshaft or Pickles...a tossup.
3. Purely by accident, the stand for my portable Weber Grill.
4. Las Vegas and a neon wedding there...mine. My husband cried and I had to suppress laughter. Remind me to tell you about it sometime! Suffice to say the song, "The Chapel of Love" has significance now.
